OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

OF RURAL INTERES'T (By "Riusticus.") One of the most welcome of the in timations made by the State Premier at Essendon the other night was that some proper investigation is to be * made as to the manner in which the operations of the Closer Settlement system are being conducted. Every body interested in the working of the land must realise the need 1or this. There are many serious phases which must be grappled with, and that wiLh out delay. There is the failure of a large number of settlers on imany of these irrigated settlements to keep up their payments to the State-the payments of the usual purchase instalments, and interest upon outstanding nistalm'ens, interest upon arrears, and interest upon loans advanced on farnms by the board. , It has been shown that the total arrears due by settlers to the State on account of the purchase of their land exceeds £150,000. SThis money covers only payments over due, and interest, but does not, of course, include the payments of pur ollaso mon...

Liverishness. THE JOY-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

Liverishness. -4---- THE JOY-KILLER, Liverishness is a joy-killer, a smile banisher. When a man has a "liver," he feels more like hitting the other fellow in the eye, rather than slapping him on the back and shouting, " How are ygu; old boy ?" As has been well s id, liverishness distils bad temper as surely as the sun dispels the morning mist. It is so ! A few doses of a time-proved stomach and liver corrective and tonic such as Mother Seigel's Syrup is generally all that. is needed to en sure the regular and even flow of bile so necessary to the perfect di gestion of food and the regular daily action of the bowels. It is a simple-matter to take thirty drops of Mother Seigel's Syrup in a little water whenever you feel the tendency to liverishness or have par. taken heartily of food that is liable to disagree with you ; yet thousands of people avoid the consequences of biliousness and indigestion in just this simple way. Mr M. Dee, of Makerston Street, Brisbane, Queensland, "yritirlg...

SALVATION ARMY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

SALVATION ARMY Those who were fortunate n,,ugh to find seating accommodation in the new Salvation Army Hall, which was opened by Brigadier Sharp on Saturday night last, witnessed one of the best Salvation Army meetings in the history of Orbost. The building was packed to its fullest capacity and many were turned away, not being able to find room inside. l'he hall is a fine little structure, 30ft by 40ft, and, although on the small side, is'a credit to the Army and tho-e Rho built it. I he Brigadier is a fine type of a Salvationist, and held his audi ence in rapt attention during his spee~ch. In response to an appeal from the visiting officer about £10 was collected, which will go towards the cost of the hall, The new officers, Ensign Sing and Lieutenant Abbot will arrive to-day to take charge of the Army work in Orbost.

THE RAILWAY TERMINUS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

THE RAILWAY TERMINUS Reference was made at the council meeting last week to the railway plans which provide for the erec'ion of the terminal station on the Newmerella fist. This would not only cause great incon venience to the maj ,rity of- the people using the line, but it would only be a matter of time for the station to be f'.oded out and perhaps washed away altogether. No one with any local knowledge would ever have proposed to put the station where it is shown on the plans, and it has become a matter of the first importance that steps should be taken to prevent., if possible, such a seri ous blunder from being made. The solution of'the difficulty that naturally suggests itself is to bridge the river and make the terminus somewhere on the Orbost side. .The Railways Standing Committee is responsible for the present scheme, as it was of opinion that the revenue derived front the line would not warrant the additional expense of a bridge over the Snowy River. We sup pose they must b...

Squadron bungalow were enljoying a quiet gamle at '"banker," when, lo and behold ! the colonel appeared on the scene, and the cards instantly vanished, and so would the troopers have iniz iled also, had not "Attention !" riveted them to the spot. Then the colonel's eagile eye roamed over the bungalow, and along the rows of -bed-cots, till it rested' on one which was soluswhat untidy, when, in tones which shook the tiles on the roof, he ordered the corporal in charge of the section to step forward, and, in a few kind words, informed hint that he was a prisoner for neglect of duty. The sergeant was then sen.t for, and, after being pulverised by the colonel's verbose artillery, was hoist ed on the "shelf" beside the .cv' poral. A messenger was sent off at full Speed for the squadron sergeant major, and a minute later that burly individual trotted up from t...

"Tlie Great Heart of the White House' 'he has been crowned, and the title fits him well With his inexhaustable fund of humor his limitless depths of sympathy and tenderness, lie stands preeminent in the eyes ot his country to-day. even as when, at the nation's head, he ruled so wisely and so well. He had little or no schooling, but with sturdy pluck and determination, he laid the foundation for his later life studying by the light of the fire after the work of the day was done, figuring and writing on an old wooden shovel then whittling its surface clean, when there was no more room, and starting over again. His teachers were the Bible, Aesop's Fables, Robinson Cru soe, Pilgrim's Progress, a United States History, and the Life of Washington, with, later, S...

OLD-TIME OPERATIC QUARRELS. + JENNY LIND : SIMS RIEEVES. In the early and mid -'forties Al fred Bunn was giving opera in Eng lish at Drury Lane, and, of course, looking out for new artistes, leading ladies especially. Jenny Lind, in 1844, was a singer of note in Ger many. She was reconmmended to init by" Lord Westnmoreland, then English Ambassador at Berlin. hiss Lind accepted Bunn's ofler of an en gagement to sing twenty times at Drury Laneo in the year 1845.

THE CURE CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 16 January 1914

THE CURE CORNER. It is said that nettle rash can he cured by rubbing the parts well with parsley, and that an onion poultice is the best thing for easing neuralgie or rheumatic pains or sore throat'. People of delicate digestion should remember that bread that has been toasted until it becomes brown has had the starch in it largely converted into dextrine, and hence, so far as the brown portion is concerned, one of the processes of digestion is gone through before the bread is taken into the sto aach. It will bie found that the thinner the slices. of bread, the more Žasy will digestion be, and when all sortions of the bread hive been thor ,ughly toasted-not bur.ed, but ohang d. to a deep brown colour-it will be ound still more easily digested. Whs insect bites. occur, the immedi ate application of a little ammonia of ten prevents swelling and inflamma tion. It is a good plan to keep a bot tie of oil of/eucalyptus, because mos quitos have a decided aversion to the smell, and will pro...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A little ammonia added to the soap suds used for oleaning paint is very af fective. . Warm soapsuds should be used for cleaning furniture before furniture cream is applied. Corks boiled for five minutes before use in the case of bottled fruits, etc., can be easily pressed in, and then make perfectly airtight stoppers. To remove tar marks, rub a little butter on the spot and allow it to stand until the tar is softened, when it will wash out with warm water and soap. To olean a dark costume, sponge with cold tea, to which a small lump of ammonia has been added, This also answers admirably for menl's and boys' suits. To remove spots from silk, mix to gether one ounce of essence of lemon and half an ounce of turpentine. Rub with a linen rag over the spots. To remove black grease front a white sweater, rub lard into the grease spot, let stand overnight, and then wash in hot, soapy water and the sweater will be white again.
