His Last Words. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
His Last Words. A detective was praising the truth fulness of women. "If war bulletins were as truthful as women," lie said, "We'd have a better idea of how this world strug gle is really going. "I remember a case the other day -it's interesting in its revelation of woman's truthfulness-the case of a husband who had disappeared. "Questioning the wife, I said to : her: ! " 'Arid now, madam, tell me-this . is very important-tell me what your husband's last words were when he . left?' I " 'His last words,' the truthful crea ture answered with a blush, 'were , "For Heaven's sake, shut up!"'" : III I iTftlTTM ???!?> U I I urTfftwi nil ?« I.. ? II

McCullcueh, who waB reported last week to be teti ou6ly ill, has been attacked by pneu monia. A recent cable stated he was on the mend. Mons. A. Richard, a French professor of music, who spent a wedding holiday at Porepunkah a couple of years ago, and became so pleased with the country that he resided there for some time, answered the call of France after the war broke out and has since been practically the whole time in the firing line. Writing to his friend, Mr. W. H. Glover, of the Bull's Head Hotel, Wangaratta, from Paris on 31at October, he sends the typical letter of a Frenohman who is moderately acquainted with the English language.

Proposed Improvements at the Park. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
Proposed Improvements at the Park. AT the conclusion of the general meeting of the Bright Boxing Day Committee on Friday evening last, President stated that several things had arisen out of the daj'i proceedings that if carried into effect would lead to the betterment of tli: sports as a whole, and he thought it desirable that these things should be discussed at the meeting. In the first place it was necessary that jockeys should wear appropriate costumes, and not ap pear in the dress some had ridden ia on Boxin? Day. The second point ml the distance of the races. The averag: country horse was not trained to do locj journeys, and the opinion suiting:! horseowners was that shorter races would conduce to better con petition. The third matter was the want of an official horse shoer on tb! ground. This would be a great boon t" owners. He also considered it a -mistal: to allow horses and vehicles to enter £ the bottom gate, as in a race the aninu-' were liable to run off at that point. H...
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME. What the Women of Great Britain Do. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME. What the Women of Great Britain Do. Hundreds of thousands of the wo men of England and Scotland are toiling day and niglit to win and end _iia war. Among all the changes which this great calamity to the hu aian race has brought about, none is more striking than the utilisation of the services of women, and in not one country concerned in the war is this more so than in Great Britain. In all he big towns of England and Scot land, private factories have been con verted into munition works-in a sense the ploughshare has been turn ad into the sword-and in all cases women are largely employed, and, .vhcre the character of the work per mits, . they exceed the number of men.- . Woman has even penetrated the celebrated Woolwich arsenal. In this vast centre of activity fourteen thousand men were employed before '-he war. There are now seventeen ".housand women at work within its high walls, and fifty thousand men. But in the associated works which have been brought ...
Bright Free Library. ARE THE DOORS TO BE CLOSED? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
Bright Free Library. ARE THE DOORS TO BE CLOSED ? ALTHOUGH it is not generally known to the public, but during the past few weeka the committee controlling the loaal publio Library haa been aeriously considering the advisability of closing the doors of the institution owing to tb? lack of sufficient financial support. This is a step that everyone would deplore, and how the difficulty is to be overcome is the question. Publio libraries of the kind are greatly appreciated, and are as a rule a valuable asset to a town. But, unfortunately, in some cases, only a few citizenB take an interest in their welfare, and fewer still contribute to their upkeep, with the result that as each quarter comes round, a diminishing subscribers' l'st is shown. Whatever fault may He with the management we are not in a position to say. but there is certainly greater apathy shown on the part of the residents. It would be a standing disgrace if the committee were forced to put up the shutters, and the sooner ...

Always the Unknown. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
Always the Unknown. Permit me to introduce myself. You have been on intimate terms with me for some time. And yet you do not know me. You have talked with me on long walks and in the still watches of the night. You have flattered me and cajoled me and pleaded with me and con doned me. And yet you uo not know me. The worst of this is that you will never know me. You will always go on believing that you do. This is your fate. I am the unknowable. I am the one you live with, and of whom you are destined, so long as you live, to be in absolute ignorance. I am the one you think you are!

Jokes. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
Jokes. Laughter is akin to tears. A schoolboy's definition of a joke was given as "something which we laugh at when it happens to somebody else which would make us cry if it hap pened to ourselves." Many people smile when an acquaintance has gout, toothache, or is sea-sick, but it is hard for the sufferer to see where the fun comes in. The common ail ments of life are anything but fit subjects for mirth. Think of the | thousands of people who suffer from rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lumba go, backache, sciatica, blood disor ders, anaemia, indigestion, bilious ness, jaundice, sick-headache, gen eral debility, gravel, stone and blad der troubles. They certainly are not subjects for laughter. In most in stances they are unaware that their suffering probably is due to defective action of the kidneys and liver. When the kidneys and liver actively fulfil their functions, uric and biliary waste poisons, manufactured in the system of these poisons which, fre quently, is the root cause of th...

Wanton Cruelty. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
Wanton Cruelty. A DASTARDLY outrage, perpetrated either iii a spirit of horseplay or of wanton re venge, occurred at Ovens Vale an-Tuesday evening of last week. Mr A. W. W Don ald, of Eurobin. attended the meeting of the Farmers' Union on that evening, leaving his horse tied to the fence. On going for the animal when the meeting had concluded he found that the poor brute's tail had been denuded of its hair, this having been done either with a pair of scissors or a razor. No words can be too strong in condemnation of such a wanton act of cruelty to a dumb animal, especially at this season, when all the protection available is required. The matter was placed in the hands of Constable M'Keogh, who has been making inquiries, and from infor mation obtained, is in hopes of bringing the offenders to justice. It is to be hoped his efforts will be successful, and the miscreants will meet with the punish ment they deserve. The determination of the Railway Department to make the Friday night t...

A lady writes:-"I find this home made preparation unequalled as - « powerful stimulant to the growth of the hair, and for restoring it-not dye ing it-to its natural color.

PLUMBAGO MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 26 January 1917
PLUMBAGO MINES. Plumbago, Ceylon's most important mineral product, is known all over the world for its lustre, lubricating, pol ishing and binding qualities. In ap pearance it is a strong black crystal line. There are now about one thou sand plumbago mines in Ceylon, in cluding all the shallow pits, open works, and deep mines. The depth varies from a few yards to as much as 700ft. Most of the' mines ore worked by natives, the only important one controlled by Europeans being the Medapola. At the majority of the mines the only machinery used is the dabare. This consists of a long wooden barrel with handles at each end. Round this a rope is given two or three turns, and a bucket is fas tened to each end. It is worked by seven or eight men turning the handles.
