During the last few years r:have met many exponentsof the fistic art, and only the other day it was my good .for tune to come across Mr. Beattieq whose ring experiences have been freely chro nicled in the press.

M?r. .lentiplay,-Sir, I beg to tender you my sincerest thanks for the won derful cure you performed on my child. The said child when about 11 months old contracted a cold which turned to Bronchitis and afterwards to double Pneumonia, and was for weeks laying at death's door; then worst of all he got that dreaded disease Mlarasmus, from which so many children, pine away and die. He 'gradually wasted away, till at last he got',- so f-'small .,-and- frail.; that we thought every day wotild. be his last, and. for .the. last few w?eeks before taking hiin. to you we just managed to keep him alive' on weak brandy and water.

District News. Toolangi. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 12 February 1898

District Ne8ws, [iRO?H OUG OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] 'Since writing last we have. had t'he fires on us with more disastrous 'effect than before. Those who had 'escaped the first visitation had to. pay, in a more or less degree, by the last 'outbreak, notably in the case of J. Briggs, who, notwithstanding the as -sistance given hinm has lost every thing, with the exception of his house and shed. Many others have suffered, principally by the loss of fences, ahd no doubt your relief committee will hear further particulars &c. As several of the blocks of land are really owned )by the banks it is to he hoped that full einquiries will he inade before any as sistance is granted.to the applicants. The paling dealers have lost a'rgely, while many of the splitters have also lost, and I think the total number, of palings burnt is fully 100,000. All the feed for the bullocks has gone, which means providing them with chaff. Palings must rise in value, and the splitters should hold out for bet...

Scribcndilrecte sapere eat principium etfone PUBLISHIED SATURDAY SMORNINGS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1898. News of the Week. MAGNIFICENT SIGHT.--Perhaps the finest spectacle it will ever be the lot of the Heas lesville people to see, was the crowning fire on Tuesday night. From the Chum-road to the Railway Tunnel was one stupendous illumination that turned night into day. Seen from the township it was magnificent but looked at from its very heart in Long Gully, where our reporter happened to arrive at the time the wind rising made the flames leap and bound in their fiercest glee, the scene was, truly appalling. Whirlwinds of giant sparks were tossed up from a fiery pit in which, through the blood-red smoke, lurid flames a hundred feet high could be seen leaping from tree to tree, galloping and frolicing amidst the dense undergrowth like living fiends. Suddenly,. as our awe-struck reporter was beginning to think discretion the better part of valor, the wind changed and, like a transfor...

The Terrors of Rheumatism. OVERCOME BY DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE. AFTER HOSPITAL TREATMENT And MEDICAL MEN HAD FAILED. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 19 February 1898

The. Terrors of, Rheumatism. " OVERCOME BY" DR.. WTLLIAMS' PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE. AFTER HOSPITAL TREATMENT And MEDICAL MIEN" ULAD FAILED. Mrs. Knibbh, of Earle-street, Toowong is the wif6 of an industrious resident of that place. She had, until quite re cently, been a great sufferer from rheu matism. Mrs. Knibb is well advanced in years, an account of her complete cure by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People should prove goon news to those sufferers who erroneously fancy rheuuatisin and other kindred ills the natural accompaniment of old age, and tnerefore .incurable. The agonies .of rhuematism are well known, and. so now is tihe fact that Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills are a cure for it. Those terrible pains in joints and muscles, which are aggravated by the slightest change in the weather, most clearly denote the presence of rheumatism, which may later on develop into rheu niatic fever. " Dear me," said Mrs. Knihh to our reporter, " I have been a great sufferer from rheumatism....

Melbourne Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 19 February 1898

[BY OUR OWN COItRESPONDENT.] I fear that ray reputation as a weather prophet is ruined. I pre dicted a wet Christmas and New Year, which vaticination did not come off, The pre.ent weather is a puzzle to all who have any knowledge of meter ology. By all known rules this month should have been cold and wet, and every weather prophet that I have consulted so predicts, so I err in good company. Our Australian authorities, such as Sir 0. Todd, Messrs. Baracchi, Russell and Wragge all admit that things in the weather world are deci dedly mixed, and are the most' extra ordinary on record. It is difficult to explain howv things are what they are, but the fact remains all the time. A new religious society is being formed in Melbourne, of which I think we shall hear more in the near future. The new movement is not a sect, but aims to steer clear of all churches. The object of the society is to dermonstrate the positive, objective reality cf the religion of Jesus Christ; and its fundamental pr...

The return cricket match between the Taggerty v. Thornton clubs on the ground of the former resulted in a defeat for our willow wielders. The Thornton skipper having won the. toss elected to bat, and the visitors put up 68 runs, T Robinson was high est score with 17 to his credit, W Rohb also be.tted well. The home team put up 26 in their first and 17 in their second attempt, A. Wylie 7 and A. Lewis 5, were the highest scores. The bowling of W. Robb, H. Robinson, and T.

A BRUTAL LARRIKIN. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Advocate — 19 February 1898

A BRUTAL LARRIKIN. Last evening, whilst returning home between the hours of eleven and-twelve o'clock a. resident took a Bile Bean for Biliousness, which obviated a possible attack of headache and constipation, which often follows an o'ver indulgence in refreshments, liquid and otherwise. Bile Beans, taken by larrikins, whose livers and digestion are in :a imperfect condition, would cause them not to feel so much ill-will towards their fellow-beings, and always be wanting to punch someone's head. This same thing applies to family tiffs and differences; if we really knew it, about two-thirds of the disputes and petty jealousies that one finds even in our best homes are caused almost en tirely by biiliousness and bad liver. To be forewarned is to he forearmed, and if you love your relations and friends don't ,e a boreto them all your life. A eourse of Bile Beans for Biliouisness will make you in all probability a good huasbanid, friend and companion. They only cost is ld per box; sure...
