CHAPTER VII. Two Men. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 February 1917

CHAPTER VII. Two Men. There was nothing to do save to take.up the sadly-tangled skein of ex istence afresh, with a heart worn by anxiety and pain, to hope against hope that some miracle would arise to rid her of the load of sorrow that the past's thoughtfulness had bred. ' Belle Angel suffered, and in the suf fering found, albeit unconsciously, re finement; the flames of torment through which she passed scorched her, but finding the metal beneath good, turned it into tempered steel. A new patience, a winsome sweet ness; these were her characteristics of the nerve-torn days that followed the intimation that foolishly- merciful people had prevailed in their outcry against the Biblical law of "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." But the period was one when a wave of so-called mercifulness had swept the country, and Miles Buckiord, mur derer, had happened to stand full in the track of that wave. The cry went up that justice would be served by the commutation of his capital sente...

Not Free After All! She was up in arms ia a moment; a woman at bay, a woman who had learnt hard lessons in a hard school. And yet, the man who had hurriedly descended £rom the motor had spok en only politely, with almost defer ence, indeed. Mentally she classified him with other men of the Lemuel Lorritt stamp, mere male brutes who played with defenceless women as with cheap-bought toys. "I say-er-excuse me, but-but haven't we met somewhere before?" It was unfortunate for Derek Car boyne that he spoke thus; the flashy hunters of innocence almost invari ably prefaced their remarks in a pre cisely similar fashion. To be sure, tlie others betrayed none of Car boyne's diffidence and awkward shy ness; they were bold, assertive, oily, and difficult to shake off. Belle star ed at Mm with big, fr...

Winter Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 February 1917

Winter Crops. FabMERS should now be busy getting land read; for winter fodder crops. In order to obtain the beat results the ground must be well worked, otherwise yields will not be satisfactory. The extra amount of labour entailed in bringing it to the right state of tilth is more than repaid by the additional feed that will be growo. Algerian oats and rape are two of the best crops for winter pasturing. They are inexpensive to grow, and will do well on a variety of soils. Buth are fit for stocking in a few weeks from the time of sowing, and provide a long grazing season and a surprising quantity of fodder. They may be described as "dual purpose" crops. O.its can be fed off, and then allowed to mature for hay. Rape, after being eaten down, will make several fresh growths, the last of which, if ploughed under, is a useful and economical soil renovator.. In the case of oatB the consistency of the seed bel does not signify much, excepting that if it is the intention to cat the crop th...

Foi the Iaat financial year tha Parliamentary Tote for roads and bridges amounted to £23,000, and for ihe previous year £36,000.

For Indigestion Drink Hot Water. A SPECIALIST'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 February 1917

For Indigestion Drink Hot Water. A SPECIALIST'S ADVICE. ' IF dyspeptics, sufferers from flatulence, indigestion, acidity, gustric catarrh, etc., would only tnke hulf a teaspoonful of bisurated magnosia iu half a glaBS of hot water immediately after eatiDg, they would noon forget that they were ever afflicted with stomach trouble, and doctors would have to look elsewhere for'patienta." In explanation of theaa words the specialist stated that most forms of stomach trouble wore duo to acidity and fermentation of the food contents combined with insuffi cient blood supply to the stomach. Hot water increases tho blood supply and bisurated magnesia instantly neutralises the acid and stops food fermentation ; the combination of the two, therefore, being' extremely efficient and infinitely preferable to the use of artificial digestive?, stimu lants and medicines. It should bo men tioned though that the form of magnesia referred to is quite distinct from the BiilphateB, citrates, oxides, and ...

Hydro-Electric Power. ITS VALUE TO THE NORTH-EAST. The cafe for municipal co-operation among north-eastern local bodieB is ono of para mount interest at the present juncture. The municipalities interested in the es tablishment of hydro electric power are Bright, Wangaratfa, Beochworth, Ohiltero, Rutherglen, Y'lckandandah, Wodonga and Albury. Whether these bodies combine and erect public hydro-electric workB and distribution with loan money, or whether they encourage capitalists to do so, is a matter for consideration, but which at tho present time cannot be intelligently dis cussed, as sufficient data is not to hand to form any safe conclusions. But that does not preclude the bodies conferring togother to formulate soma scheme of united action that will preserve the rights and privileges of all concerned.

THE Wangaratta St. Patrick's Day Racing Club is faced with a difficulty in securing the use of the Wangaratta racecourse this year- When the trouble was made known Springburst club offered to conie to their assistance and grant them the use of their course. This offer was supplemented on Monday when the Chiltern racecourse was offered free of charge for the holding of the annual demonstration. Something of a record for small fields was established by St. James Racing Club at its annual meeting last week end. For the six races there were a total of ten starters, viz :-Two each for the trial and hack race, four for the pony race, while there was a walkover in the handicap and flying, and no acceptors for the welter. The trot, however, made amends and attracted a field of ten. A strike of bookmakers occurred at the Nhill races on Wednesday of last week. The club's charges for betting were 3116, but the ringmen refused to bet unless the charge was reduced to £1 1/. The club of...
