WELL DONE, A.I.F.! OUR SOLDIERS' CREAT WORK. CONGRATULATIONS FROM GENERAL RAWLINSON. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
WELL DONE, A.I.F.! OUR SOLDIERS' GREAT WORK. CONGRATULATIONS FROM GENE- RAL RAWLINSON. Captain T. Horler, formerly of De- vonport and Burnie, forwards to rela- tives at Burnie a letter addressed by General H. Rawlinson, commanding the Fourth Army, to the Australian soldiers. It gives some idea of the great work done by our men, and is quoted in full: TO THE AUSTRALIAN CORPS: Since the Australian Corps joined the Fourth Army on April 8, 1918, they have passed through a period of hard and uniformly successful fight- ing, of which all ranks have every right to feel proud. Now that it has been possible to give the Australian Corps a well-earned period of rest, I wish to express to them by gratitude for all that they have done. I have watched with the greatest interest and admiration the various stages through which they have passed, from the hard times of Fiera and Pozieres to their culminating victories at Mont St. Quentin and the great Hindenburg system at Bony, Bellicourt Tunnel, and...

RUSSIAN DELEGATION REACHES LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
RUSSIAN DELEGATION REACHES LONDON. A Russian delegation, representing all moderate elements, including Social- ists, has reached London via Odessa, in order to tell the Allies about the critical conditions in Russia. They say that the situation created by the Bolsheviks in Northern and Central Russia threatens the general starvation of Russian civilisation. All newspapers, except the Bolshevist or- gans, have been suppressed. Justice and Law Courts do not exist. For the most part youngsters of 18 have re- placed the dismissed mogistrates. The people are frequently shot by their guards while taken from one prison to another. The Soviet Government is flooding the country with worthless paper money, and the national food supply is based on the principio that only Bolshevists are entitled to regular food.

A FRIEND TO DELICATE LADIES. "Dr. Maund's Old Time Wine" is &nbsp; a better medicine for women and girls &nbsp; than many so-called female tonics, because it builds up the general &nbsp; health, dissipates langour and those &nbsp; &nbsp; unpleasant feelings of exhaustion which, as a rule, are so trying. Pro- &nbsp; duces a desire for activity, thereby &nbsp; building up the general health, and &nbsp; when the body is healthy and strong, functional derangements and irregu- &nbsp; larities quickly disappear. "Old Time Wine" is a delicious beverage which &nbsp; restores the vitality and creates new &nbsp; vigor; charges the veins with rich &nbsp; red blood, and produces new nerve &nbsp; force. It is not a new, untried &nbsp; preparation. It is recommended by &nbsp; doctors and nurses, and to the weak, &nbsp; anaemic, nervy woman is a positive , necessity. Pale...

CROPS AND MARKETS TASMANIAN MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
CROPS AND MARKETS TASMANIAN MARKETS. DEVONPORT.-There were very few &nbsp; sales in the produce market yesterday. &nbsp; Chief interest, of course, centred around the potatoes, which sold so well &nbsp; in Sydney. lt is expected that there will be 3000 bags at Devonport and 2000 bags at Burnie for export this week. Merchants did not seem inclined to hazard a guess as to what the price would be to-morrow, but put it down at about £16 for the present. The ss Taviani is due to-morrow to load pro - duce for Sydney direct. ULVERSTONE. - Notwithstanding the news from Sydney in regard to the price of potatoes soaring skyward, there is no rush-of growers to secure the big prices quoted, both for the Sydney market and for transhipment &nbsp; to Brisbane. Yesterday the delivery &nbsp; consisted of 42 sacks, for which buyers offered £15 per ton. This growers declined, and the tubers are await- ing better offers, or shipment on grow- ers' account.

NORTH-WESTERN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
NORTH-WESTERN CROPS. BARRINGTON.-We are having a spell of very dry weather. A good acreage of Algerians are cut for hay, Mr. D. Mason's perhaps holding pride of place, judging by the number of stooks. Some good crops of peas are to be seen, but appear to be ripening too rapidly. Potatoes are somewhat late, and not many complain of miss- es. Perhaps feed has not been more scarce for many years. Yet the by- word of farmers is, "Prices right." &nbsp;
