Wear and Tear. As the years roll on In their track less course, the stress and strain of modern existence slowly but surely have their effect, and, as we approach middle life, most of us suffer from ail ments, such as rheumatism, gout, neu ralgia, lumbago, sciatica, anaemia, in digestion, biliousness, jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The in efficient action of the kidneys and liver is the prime factor when we suf fer from one or more of these com plaints, and in such cases it is neces sary to restore the kidneys and liver to health and activity ere a cure can be effected.

OPPOSING FORCES' " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, As he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst 1 grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow— For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the price, And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink.

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. S By the publication ofv Tvhat has been happily described in the preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com mittee of the Commonwealth Parlia ment has inaugurated the collected ! pubMcation of the Historical Records ; of Australia. These ^'birth certifi cates" consist of a series of litho graphs of original documents conneit ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Australia. First we have the oaths of office taken by Cap tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century Jie sug gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and wh.ch were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are disci r.ed in the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his officers had to take.

FINGER=PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. English detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were fn possession of an infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If they arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification; the ordinary measurements are taken, l>ut they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who he ...

CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE At the instance of a money-lender, Mr Daniel ffm, Car tan-Lee, barris tcr-ut-law, of Paper Buildings, Temple, was summoned at Bow street yesterday (reports "The Daily Mail," Dec-ember 19) for obtaining' credit for more than £20 without disclosing the fact that he was an undischarged bankrupt. It was alleged that in negotiating I a loan of £400 (for which a bill for £f>00 payable, in six months was given) the defendant told, the money-lender, a Mr Swyers, that he had not been bankrupt. The bill had not been met. 1 Mr Swyers, in cross-examination by Mr Huntley Jenkins, admitted that a statement in a circular he issued that he was "a retired business gentle man" was not true. Some of the testimonials in the circular were ficti tious. He had not said to a Mr Bal lantyne that all he wanted was to revenge himself on an Englishman as he had a' brother-in-law who had been deported. "T.ruth" had de scribed him as "One of those harpies who bleed woul...

DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS * : 1 A verdict of "Manslaughter" was re turned yesterday by the Coroner's jury at the inquest on the two victims of I the motor-lorry accident in the Old; Kent road last week (reports "The Daily News," December 9). The jury expressed the opinion that the driver of the lorry', a man named Georgo Clevett, "drove at a rapid speed whilst under the influence of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of the lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex cessive or reckless, but one witness, an L.C.C. tram conductor, did not con sider that the driver was to blame, while others declared that he did his best to avoid an accident. Interesting evidence was given in support of the allegation that Clevetl was under the influence of drink. A constable who arrested him aftor the accident declared that the man was drunk—that he was very unsteady, smelt strongly of drink, and was very thick in his speech. Another police wit ness added that Clevett looked dazed He did not attribute hi...

COSTLY ROYAL HABITS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 21 February 1914

COSTLY ROYAIj IIABITS The Bavarian Finance Minister, in supporting a motion for the Increase of the Bavarian King's Civil List to £270,000, observed, according to Dr Mullermeiningen, who opposed the vote (says t.he Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Mail"), that the expenses of the royal shoots were not excessive, and it was better that royalty should shoot and hunt than run after Venus, which was still a more expensive oc cupation. Dr Mullermeiningen pro tested against the assumption that royalty must have expensive habits and that it is better to choose the less o£ two evils- "These are hard times for everybody," he declared, "and the Ccurt must be sparing too."
