OPPOSING FORCES " Why don't they use Lux ?" A little boy said, \s he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head. Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, \nd the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt. I can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so.

Twopence is the price, And the price is low, If Lux'U give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink.

A High-Class Concert RICH MUSICAL TREAT [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

A High-Class Concert HICII MUSICAL TREAT Tho entertainment at the Mechanics' Hall in the evening proved a fitting termination to a aucciwful clay's undertaking. The committee had at considerable expense engaged Miss Minnie Paton and Mr. Harry Shinner to give thi; bulk of the vocal numbers, and their enterprise was rewarded by a "bumper" house—every available seat being occupied. The society had the satisfaction of knowing that they fulfilled their intentions to provide a high-class entertainment, which was highly appreciated. Miss Minnie Paton, of Melbourne, who made her debut before a local audience, is a charm ing vocalist, with a soprano voice at once mellow, sweet and under admirable control. In her opening number Miss Paton , displayed marked refinement and purity of tone in her rendition of "Caller O'u," with its pretty echo effect, faultlessly rendered by the singer, who finished in a delighful pianissimo that floated like a | musical whisper through the silent | hall.

Caledonian Society THIRD HIGHLAND GATHERING A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

Caledonian Society THIRD HIGHLAND GATHERING A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION For some weeks previously the annual Scottish gathering, under the auspices of the local Caledonian Society, which eventuated on j Tuesday, had been looked to by old and young. During the morn ing the skirl of the pipes were to be heard in different parts of the town. The picturesque kilt lent color to the proceedings, and there is no doubt that the "mon" from the country famous for its Ilaggis, and many other things, has an j inspiring and becoming costume. The tartans of the different clans blend nicely together and many veteran's mind on Wednesday wandered back to deeds of valor for the Empire performed by their ancestors. Preceding the sports, a Caledonian procession marched along Federal Street, Chief Innes acting ae marshall and a stalwart Scot in ex-Chief Mclntyre, carried I the society's imposing flag, whilst i the music was supplied by about ! a dozen enthusiastic pipers.

An additional attraction, and one to which must be ascribed in great measure the success of the function, was the Jeparit Brass Band, which was under the con ductorship of Mr. Griffiths.

Good Advice. There are thousands of people who suffer from common ailments, such as Rheumatism, Indigestion, Gout, liousnc-ss, Neuralgia, Jaundice, Lumbago, Sick Headache, Sciatica, Gravel, Backache, General Debility, Blood Disorders Stone, Anaemia, Bladder Troubles who have no idea that their suffering is due to a diseased or inactive con dition of the kidneys and liver. The reason that treatment by Warner's Safe Cure has been so successful in cases oE the disorders named is that Warner's Safe Cure exercises a spe cific healing and stimulating influ ence upon the kidneys and liver.

AFRICAN KING DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

AFRICAN KING DEAD ■ i l It may be assumed with some confi dence that the persistent rumors of Monelek's death which have been cir culated periodically since his paralytic seizure in 1908 are, on' this occasion, well founded, says "The Times." The extent of the change In Abyssinian and North-East African politics involved by his death cannot yet be appraised. Menelek has been dead to the outer world and possibly even to Abyssinia for some years. His stripling grand son and heir, Lldj Yasou, is little known, and has still to prove his ability to cope with the peculiar prob lems of Abyssinian statecraft. During Meneiek's reign of 20 years the extremely primitive civilisation of Abyssinia has been overlaid with a Western veneer, though it has not lost its original characteristics. The coun try has telegraphs and telephones, and a railway, which stops short at a point near Harrar. It has a limited but in creasing trade in svhich India shares. The main industries of Abyssinia are, however...

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 February 1914

FACT ABOUT MISTLETOE A singular tiling concerning mistle toe, called attention to by "The Gar den," is that, although it occurs* on a wide range of trees and is so very common 011 the apple, yet it is never found on the pear. Some attempts to grow mistletoes on pear trees were made last year in Messrs James Veitch and Sons' nursery at Langley, and the results were so remarkable that the subject has since been brought before the scientific committee of the Royal Horticultural Society. Mistletoe seed was sown on a number of pear trees, and in many instances germination took place. In no case, however, did the mistletoe get beyond the stage of germination, and no leaves w^re de veloped. The effect upon the pear was very noticeable, for the mistletoe, in its attempt to establish itself, killed all the tissue of the tree-stem just within the bark, completely encirc ling the stem. All growth was killed above the point where the mistletoe had germinated.
