NOT TREATING IT PROPERLY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

NOT TREATING IT PROPERLY. If you cannot get rid of a cold it is because you are not treating it properly. There is no reason why a cold should hang on for weeks or until some serious throat or lung trouble is developed, and it will not if you take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Taken in double doses every hour after the first symptoms appeared Cham berlain's Cough Remedy would have coun teracted the effects of the cold, and restored your system to a healthy condition. Even after the cold has become settled in the system Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will give prompt relief and counteract any tendency of its resulting in pneumonia. Sold everywhere. Teacher: Now, Tommy, suppose you had two apples, and you gave another boy his choice of them. You would tell him to take the biggest one, wouldn't you? No, mum. Teacher: Why? Tommy: 'Cos 'twouldn't be necessary.

RUSSIANS FIGHTING STUBBORNLY. London, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

RUSSIANS FIGHTING STUBBORNLY. , London, Friday. The 'Daily Chronicle' correspondent at Petrograd states that the Russians have been unable to continue their advance on the right bank of the river Sans, nor yet outside of the Lemberg road. ' General Von Mackenzen left his main force to hold the trenches, while he witb ' drew a strong detachment of troops and directed attacks on the forts. These attacks were strengthened by troops from General Marwitz's army operating to the ' south-east of Premzysl, under cover of heavy artillery fire. The German's then advanced across the north-western and western forts on a 20 mile front. They moved down a ravine from Mackowice to Fort No. 11, at which point they were checked. They also ap proached the most westerly forts by means of a forest path, breaking down the Russian entanglements. Then they charged over to \ the concrete forts, where fierce hand to hand conflicts took place, wherein both sides used the bayonet freely, and also the butt, end...

? HELD OVER ? ... Owing to the fact that our new type setting machinery is not yet in proper working order, added to the rush of work and natural disabilities which accompanies the tea3k of producing the first issue of a new paper, many of the features we had planned to introduce in the 'Democrat' have to be held over. These will appear next week. We have also been compelled to curtail several of the features in to day's issue. While we endeavoured to do all possible to make our first issue as at tractive and interesting as possible we rea lise there may be many shortcomings. Next week we hope to have everything in pro per order, and to have (in racing parlance) 'settled clown into our stride.'

AND HERE'S YOUR CHANCE! , After sending their winter Samples for 1916, a big firm of English Manufacturers cabled to their representative here to take no orders for Gloyes as they could not execute at the prices, v- while many were quite unattainable, and being a big customer of the firm we got the sam- :; . pies. All fresh new and untouched goods we cannot buy again AT THE PRICE, and goods we cannot buy again AT ANY PRICE. . In fact the price of gloves to-day is about half as much again. That's why we say get yours now. Gloves for Men—Gloves for Women— Gloves for Children. From a tiny pair of infantees to a cosy fur lined pair for Father. But— GET IN EARLY.
