About Our Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

About Our Soldiers. PRIVATE A. THOMAS, of Freeburgh, came home for a few days' furlough on Monday afternoon last. Captain W. J. Fulton, of the local rifle club, after five attempts to gain ad mission into the volunteer ranks, has at last succeeded, and left for camp on Tuesday morning. Captain Fulton will make an ideal soldier; and being as he is an expert rifle shot, his experience in that branch should be of great value to the authorities, particularly as a sharp shooter. He has won many prizes at rifle meetings in this State and N.S.W., so that   should he be drafted into the corps for sharpshooting practice, he can be relied upon to secure some trophies. His many friends wish him a successful trip and a safe return to the district. Mr Lyndon Smith, of the State Rivers   and Water Supply Commission at Pyramid Hill, and formerly of Bright, has received word from the Defence Department that, as the result of finding of court of inquiry, his son, Eric Lyndo...

Our Soldiers in England. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916

Our Soldiers in England. By Monday's mail a large number of letters came to the district from our soldiers abroad, and below we give excerpts from two that have been shown us. "Wandiligong is exceptionally well rep   resented in the 3rd Division," writes Gunner C. Gribble, son of Mr Edwin Gribble, Wandiligong. " Salisbury Plains at present holds the full quota of this division, and its infantry, artillery, pioneers and other necessary units are receiving the final training on the broad plains. The huts of the ' kangaroo' have the monopoly of the whole of Larkhill camp, and you could easily get a company of infantry from North Eastern boys. While they are capturing imaginary enemies we are storming dummy trenches, with aeroplanes constantly observing, and business is very brisk. A divisional parade is to be held next Sunday, and I guess many a parent and friend would love to picture their son amongst the 40,000 men who will assemble. Dick Rowe, G Robinson, and Harry Jago...

With the " Revellers" at Beechworth. [BY " No. 31."] / The Bright district for a great many years past haa been very prolific in musical and dramatic combinations. Almost each town, particularly sinco the war broke out, has been able to bo;ist of its company of performers, and a very pleasing feature through it nil haa been the interchange i between tbeBe companies. They have i realised that thoir duties have not ended in showing in their own town, but have - cheerfully, when their Eervicea have been sought, helped to furthor the interests of other localities. This has been very grati fying indeed. Beyond their own district, with the exception of the local comedy club, their ability haa been an unknown quantity, and so successful was that club at Wangaratta some time back in aid of the local hospital there, that others longed for a chance to appear before Btrango footlights.

Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

Foul Breath The old saying that ''distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when applied to those people whose breath is ladon with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she Is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and ji desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled with this complaint will drive thei...

Br the weather calendar, Victoria's Bpring monthB are September, Octol er and November, but this \ear winter storms and the advancing waves of summer conditions have been consistently in conflict, and the result has been a protraction of winter, with occasioned spells almost of July severity. The State has not experienced more than a half dozen ideal spring days. These have been scattered over 10 weeks of depressing weather.
