"Woomera" on the Wowser. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 21 October 1915

"Woomera" on the Wowser. He has won the condemnation Of a mighty shady sort, In the slum that floats on racing, The parasites on sport ; In the petty touts and tricksters Of the small suburban "meet," In the hard-faced, loud-voiced bawlers. Who disfigure every street. In the fi uls and social failures Who consider they've a show. To hold their own in betting Will) the expert "lkey Mo," In boosers and in bruisers, And in battlers by the score • I might mention several others. But you don't want any more. There's the man who wo-ks the beer pump, At some squalid " drinking den," Or the three-card operators. One encounters now and then. They're a shady social mixture. In the seeting citys vat, So its " good to be a wowser,'* I If it keeps us clear of " that." From the "Australasian.''

Want of Confidence. Our Members' Speeches. MR. GRAY SUPPORTS THE GOVERNMENT. Pointed Criticism by Mr Angus. Speaking to the motion, "Tlmt the Government does not possess the confidence of the House," Mr A. Gray said :—When I was a can didate for a seat in Parliament I announced myself as a supporter of the Peacock Government, and I feel that it would be a violation of that promise to my electors were I not to support the Ministry on this particular occasion. In the first place, I, like all other Liberal candidates, pointed out to my elec tors that there were certain measures embraced within the policy speech delivered by the Premier at Creswick which I did not altogether agree with ; and I stated that 1 would reserve to myself the right of voting against those measures when they were placed before the House. I feel that I would not be justified in deserting any Government when it is in trouble, unless 1 was thoroughly convinced that the trouble was brought upon it by some act of its...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 21 October 1915

LADIEb' LETTER. Stories relating to the contents of some of tho Christmas billies for sol diers seem scarcely credible. Who wou11 believe, for instance, that nny otie could be -so cruel mid vindictive as to buy a billy and 1111 It entirely with white feathers? Imagine the hor i riil experience it would be for a man in the trenches expecting a pleasant Christmas gift and greeting to open it nnd find such insulting contents. Yet 1 am assured that this is what one billy from a northern suburb held, nothing else. Mauv had untlnned per ishable things which would not only have been baa long before they reach ed Egypt, but would have spoiled. Oth'.v contents, for instance, in an Alexandra Club billy was a large piece of strong cheese, [lacked next to a piece of cake with nothing but paper between, and one was full of preserv ' ed prtinos, quite unwrapped, among which were thrust one or two small parcels'. People asked why it was neces sary to examine the contents of the billies at all; wel...

Ladies' Column. Summer Millinery. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 21 October 1915

Ladies' Column. Summer Millinery. (By Rosnland). The present fashion is allowing the millinery designer abundant op portunity for the exercise of artistic talent. . Summer hats are delight fully picturesque, «nd are often re vealed in the most Iragile and fascinating materials. Aeroplane is being extensively used, and charming effects are secured with a transparent brim of this traterial in delicate shades of pink, mauve or blue with a crown of velvet of the same material prettily gauged. Very charming is the introduction of careless ribbon bows, and long flying streamers, but since this is a fancy which can be most easily abused, its adoption is only recog nised on the hat of a distinct type. From Paris we hear that the pic ture hat has re-captured its long lost kingdom. After a long reign the small pert hats and toques to which we have so long adhered arc losing their popularity, and we pre about to return to the gracious, picturesque models which are so generally becoming. As a f...

HUMAN SEMAPHORE'S HEROISM. DASTARDLY HUN DISCIPLINE. BELGIAN'S LOVE ROMANCE. LONDON, August 27. There is a story of an unknown New Zenlander which should go down to posterity, says tho Central News spe cial correspondent with the Medit ranean Expeditionary Force. Th? story was told me by the chief scout of the Xew Zealanders, who witnessed the spectacle. It seems that in the advance one of the men fonml himself cut off on a high promontory. The Turks were ad vancing in full force upon him, and the only hope left, was for him to sur render. ills Isolated position, it soon became clear, was duo to his having been wounded and overlookod. The strength of the advancing en emy was unknown to us, and the chief scout was at ills wits' end how to iii• (1 the required information. Judgo his astonishment when the j wounded man, perched on his excel lent point of vantage, began signalling a message, lie had not progressed very far when the Turks opened fire upon him.

Public Notices. WE DO HOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS Treatingja tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great care and.patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will .abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time.

DON'T TRIFLE WITH IT. Do not fail to keep a bottle of Chain berlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy on hand during the summer, for bowel complaint ia always prevalent during the not months and is too dangerous to be trifled with. This is especially true when young children are attacked with it. A dose or two of Chamberlain s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy will place the trouble within control and perhaps save a life. It has never been known to fail even in the severest cases and its cost is not beyond anyone.—Sold by all stores Boort and Quambatook.

Ladies' Column. The Art of Smiling. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 28 October 1915

Ladies' Column. The Art of Smiling. . (!'y I\Msalaiul). Is smiling an ..rt? Some of my readers will say "No," smiles ure the outward and visible sign of a happy disposition. They are nature's signal that beliind the smiling face lies a contended mind. Vet I wonder if this is the whole truth? Are there not many patient loving souls who smile amid their tears, even amid their griefs and tribulations. They are unhappy, yet they smile because they know that their smiles will bring sunshine into the lives of those around theni. They have cultivated the art of smiling. Kveryone likes to see a smiling face, and to smile becom ingly one must cultivate a cheerful and sympathetic condition of mind. The faee wreathed' in smiles is like perpetual sunshine.in a home. It is irrisistible, and conquers all hearts. « A smiling mout]i loses half its charm if the eyes do not correspond; for the eyes are the windows of the soul, and the smile that lies only about the lips soon dies .-.way, leaving an i...
