YOD SHOULD BE DETERMINED in rejecting the worthless and frequently in jurious counterfeits which are sometimes pushed for the sake of greater gain as "just as good" as the GENUINE SANDER AND SONS' PURE VOLATILE EUCALYPTI EXTRACT. Be not deceived! SANDER'S EX-TRACT is recognised by the highest medical authorities as- possessing unique stimulating, healing and antiseptic powers.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 20 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. (By "Irene.") : The more we see of the new fash ions the more it becomes apparent that the stiff corset must go and the new figure and pose be adopted, to a certain extent, if they are to be worn with any good effect. There must be a svelte pliability that any much- bon ed and braced corset will not allow, | and there must be a certain sugges tion of limpness. How different is the new figure-line from that of last year. So much so that many thoughtful wo men long have liesitated before adopt ing the new style. The question is: will complicated draperies enjoy as short a reign as did panniers last sea son? Parisiennes were almost taken aback themselves by the, unheard of eccentricities paraded for their edi fication at fashionable racecourses. The leading houses, seeing they had overstepped the mark, capitulated, and immediately made tracks in an other direction. Hence modes which threatened to be more than eccentric have become subdued and are simple and elegant. The...

A Question of Honor. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 20 May 1914
A Question of Honor. Among other anecdotes of Uaiver sity life; Dean. Hole tells of an occa sion when there was some doubt as to the locality of a city mentioned in a Greek text, and the lecturer address ed a youth who had just come up from the famous Shrewsbury school. "Now, Mr. Bentley, you are a pu* pil of our great geographer, Dr. But-* ler, the Atlas of our age, who carries the world not on ,Jiis shoulders, but in his head, and you can probably en lighten us as to the position of thia ancient town." "I believe, sir," was the prompt re ply, "that modern travellers are of .opinion that the city ought to be plac ed about ten miles to the south-east of the spot which it now occupies on our map." After receiving respectful thanks for the information, the informer told Dean Hole as they left the lecture room that he had never heard of tha .venerable city before, but that foi; the honor of Shrewsbury and the re putation of Dr. Butler he felt himself bound to say something.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES] 3\tany folk seem to believe that nia trimonial ads. in the daily papers are either fakes or jokes. Some of them are not. A young gentleman,' "rising 50, and well worn at that, spent quite a. number of half-crowns with Auck land papers without any beauteous young damsel laying her rank and fortune at his feet. So he got on to a '-'matrimonial agent." It seems al most incredible, but this agent ac tually found a sweet young thing of 49y2, and arranged a wedding between them without either having seen the other. Three days prior to the wed ding the giddy young flapper of 49 awaited her selected bridegroom in a (boarding house. The bridegroom 'dressed himself with care and went along. The "agent" introduced them thus: Mr. , this is Miss ——, your . fiancee! The far from beautiful young nan took one glance at a simpering mummified face that might have been dug up in ancient Egypt, and, without a word, grabbed his hat and departed. His ad. is still appearing at interv...
