TESTIFY TO AND RECOMMEND NURSE ENDRES, of Burbon Street, Bundaberg (Q-)i writes: " I was so ill I longed for the hour when* I would be at peace." Read her letter: CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. " Until two years ago I followed my profession of LADIES NURSE, residing then at Mt. Perry. Overwork brought on a TOTAL COLLAPSE OF MY NERVOUS SYSTEM. I was treated by several doctors, but grew worse, and became so low and suffered so much that I despaired of ever being well again; in fact, ONE DOCTOR SAID THE END WAS VERY NEAR; and, indeed, I ONLY LONGED FOR THE HOUR WHEN 1 WOULD BE AT PEACE." A friend, who was most perr listen! in her efforts, finally made me try Clements Tonic, AND IT PROVED MY SALVATION. Four bottles saw me up and about, and now. although well advanced in years, I am strong and active, and well able to look alter the business 1 h.ve.

Deafening. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 April 1914

Deafening. The youth was in danger ol drifting into bad courses, when one of the noble people who interest themselves in such cases persuaded him to accept employment on'a farm. Alas! a week later the lad reappeared in his old haunts. "What, James!" exclaimed his bene factor, reproachfully, "back again? Why didn't you stay on the farm?" "I couldn't stand the country, sir," onawered the bred-and-born gutter snipe. "Too quiet for ye—eh?" • "Quiet, not 'arf; much too noisy," cried James. "Why, crikey, sir, it was fair deafenin'. Wot wi' the row of the birds in the daytime, and the noise of the silence at night, I very near went off my "ead."

III. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 April 1914

III. Richard Dalo's heart was heavy. In spite of his brave words.of an hour since, when he had ordered Lib lj' and hre brothers out of his sight, the "poorhouse" loomed large on his mental vision. In a week's time, if not Lefore, he and Betty would be lurneO away from the small holding that had been farmed by his father ar-d grandfather before him. He had spoken of work, but who would take an old man when, there were plenty of young ones ready and eager for employment? His troubled gaze went from time to time to that pathetic figure in the i.'iglenook. He watched the shadows deepen until a brooding peace seem ed to envelop all the land; the nod ding tea-roses showed darker in the ga-liering dusk the scent of flowers i-jte heavily from the dew-drenched earth; the smell of clover and new i.iown hay was in the air. This was the hour that he and Betty had al ways loved the best—the hour of rest after a day of toil. With fingers that shook he felt for a time-worn briar, and, placing it m...

II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 April 1914

II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Batteraea. August 2nd, 1910. Dear Betty,—William, Alt and 1 think it only right that you should know about father and mother. The farm's been doing very badly of late, and they can't keep up the interest on the mortgage. I'm very much afraid it will mean the workhouse for them unless you can afford to do something really substantial. II so, you'd better meet us at Rosedale Farm to-morrow afternoon at five o'clock. If you're not there I shall take it you're not willing, but I may as well tell you than 1 can do nothing to help the old people, "and I expect Prudence keeps a tight hold on Wil liam's money, and I don't see what Alf can do; so that you seem to be the only hope. And as, judging by all accounts, you must be coining money, I hope you'll do your duty. We've seen very little of one another, you and I, of late years, but I think you know what a strong objection poor Bert always had to play-actresses, and it was only natural I should side with bim. But, a...

THE FAMILY COUNCIL. I I By FRANCES BROWN. Tlicy were old—over seventy, both t them—and it was before the tiifie of the Old-Age Pension, so there seemed nothing for it but the "Houss." The man, his face weather-beaten and gnarled under beetling, pent house brows, sat upright in his chair and gazed fixedly out o£ the open lat tice window at a yellow ten-rose that, nodded its graceful head in the aper ^~;e. A light summer breeze stirred the curtains, bringing with it a home ly scent of gilly-flowers. o ' Richard Dale's face was impassive. It might have been hewn out of rough granite, and vo all appearance as life less a thing, so far as any indication ot paying attention to the family con clave was concerned; but, his hear ing was unimpaired, he lost not a word of the discusscion. The old woman, whom as the belle oi the village he had wedded fifty years ago, sat on the opposite side cf the inglenook and looked with pa thetically patient eyes at the man whose handsome face and manly tea...

COrrespondence. SCARSDALE WATER SUPPLY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 25 April 1914

SOARS DALE WA'PEpTSUPPLY. To the EtiWor. air,—1 notice in your report of the Scarsdale Borough Cjuucil that Cr 8. at ton has taken steps to have a> water service for the bi.rough. The idea in itself is a laudable one; bue the practicability of it seems to me to be outside the pale of such a small municipality as this is. Ia the early days, when the mines were booming, and the population Tra« large, it would have betm the time for such a Btep to be taken, because there wonld have been some chance to get sufficient revenue to pay off a good proportion of the labilities. But now, when the good old £owa has decayed and reached that stage it could not get much v/ores ia, ia my opinion, a very inoppurtun# time to launch a water scheme. I might here say that in almost every borough in Victoria, born long after Scarsdale, there is a legitimate water supply, and some of the civic fath ers of those boroughs did not count the coat before imposing hardens upon ratepayers that they have not. ...

Blakely had departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents lor the prosecution of his •big scheme in his possession, and Macdonald, now with plenty of funds in hand, had thrown himself heart and soul into the task of developing the mine. He had engaged as his chief assistant a smart young engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whose lack of practical experience was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a •boundless enthusiasm, which he had the faculty of imparting to the miners under his charge. So far, however, their united efforts at locating the reef had ibeen no more successful than Macdonald's previous ones. They had bored and tunnelled in various direc tions from the main shaft, and al though no hint of the precious ore had been revealed, at least the pass ages, under Forrest's skilful guidance, were masterpieces of underground construction. The lad was justly proud of them. Blakeley cabled the news of his ar rival in London. Th...

III. in Perth, Macdonald found his fears amply confirmed, so to London lie went, angry with himself that he had been so easily hoodwinked, tout grimly determined to bring Blakeley to book. During the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance, and the working of the stock markets generally, through the medium of the ship's library. So, when one fine after noon he pushed open the ornate swing door which admitted to the bflice of the company, he was fully primed for a stormy interview with Blakeley. He found himself in a large, lofty apart ment, furnished with highly-polished and obviously expensive oflice fittings. To his left was a glass-panelled door, labelled "Private," doubtless the en trance to Blakeley's sanctum. The sole occupant of the room was a young lady, dressed neatly in black, who was seated at a table with a typewriter in front of her ana a tele phone-receiver at her elbow. At John's entrance she laid aside a news paper she had been reading and re garded ...
