THE LITTLE AMBER BOTTLE. A. FAMILIAR OBJECT IN THOU SANDS OF. HOMES. Tne Kttle amber bottle in which Dr. Morse's Indian Hoot Pills arc packed is probably better known as a familiar object about the home than any otner- bottle of a like kind. It is not thTo as an ornament, but for p r actical every day use. In the best re pulated families the little ills of life will crcep in. Some member of the fam Iv circle may occasionally suffer from Biliousness or Indigestion, and one or the other Will from time to time exhibit the well-known symp toms of Gonstipa t on From these little troubles more serious complaints arise and- 6houlcl, therefore, not be neglected. The slight headache, bad breath, and discoloured tongue, are the index to a disordered stomach, and the necossity of keeping a safe, sure, and reliable remedy in tho house is apparent. By following such a course the more expensive method of calling in a doctor may be avoided. Be your own doctor, prescribe Dr. Morse's Indian Hoot Pil...

CITIZEN'S PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 February 1914
CITIZEN'S PICTURES. The factor which in any venturo decides between success arid failure when man h;us dono His utmost to ensure success is often something tri vial, late appearing- and unavoidable.

Success seemed as sured at 6 p.m. Half an. hour later there was a flash of lightning, one clap of thunder and a shower of rain 'with promise of more. The committee hastily had tlioir plant takon to the Federal Hall. This extra expense and the smaller attendance due to the threatening rain just brought the venture short of the anticipated financ...

INDUSTRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 27 February 1914
INDUSTRIAL. The strike bacillus is still prevalent but the disease shows some signs of moderating. The meat strike is Bet tied- ror a time-the master butchers having conceded a rise in wages of 5s a week all round until the matter is settled by the -Arbitration Court, with the inevitable noticc that the price of meat will be raised immedia tely. As usual, the increase is ''passed on'' and the patient public have to suffer the infliction. The W&tcrside Workers' strike is not yet definitely settled, a number of the malcontents refused the order of the union officials to resume work under the conditions proposed by Sir Justice Higgins. How these rebellious spirits will bo treated by their officials re mains to be seen twt it gives some point to the prediction by a British Labour leader that if ever Unionism should be endangered the disruption would come from within.
