ALL LEMON. IS USABLE. A Fruit that is also a Medicine-Chest. For the cleanliness of the human body lemon juice is the grand specific. It is purifying and disinfectant. Slices of lemon used to wash the hands render them white and clean, and, in fact, solutions of lemon juice may be used for bathing the whole body. Lemon juice may likewise be used for cleaning the teeth, and for rinsing the mouth and throat; a few drops in a glass of water will strengthen the eyesight. It will also cure slight wounds on the hands and chilblains. Small pieces of lemon applied to corns will lessen the pain they pro duce. This precious juice is of grea; use in diphtheria and gout, and is a sovereign remedy for colds. The juice of several lemons taken every day cures arthritic rheumatism, and it is an excellent antidote for diabetes. Washing the head with solutions oI lemon juice wilt free the hair from fatty secretions, obviate its fall, and keep it clean and bright. Lemon juice in either hot or cold wat...

t Britain at War. WHAT SHE IS DOING. THB-<fol!owlng few facta will give some .idea of the part the British Empire is playing in the present great tragedy. The writer goeB on to Bay it will help to brush away the pessimistic cobwebs that many are spinning round their myBtifiod arid bewildered brains- He says : " Britain has maintained an over-sea com merce with the Allies and the neutral ' nations little less in money value than in the year proceeding the war.

What the Roots Require. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 February 1917

What the Roots Require. By Wni, North. See that y;our,. fowls pay for all they get. You are riot likely to over look the eggs with, which they pre sent yon, .but a. great many people quite fail to grasp the fact that there is: another way in which the fowls may prove useful. I am not going to apologise foi writing about such a subject as man ure, because> to the gardener it is a rvatter of tne greatest interest. The amateur is very far from success un ;il he realises the importance of man ure. No ground is quite as heavily cropped as that of the small garden. Every foot is under cultivation, and as a consequence the flowers and vege tables are taking the goodness out of the land all the time. Those exqui site, hair-like roots are reaching out i all directions searching for the food the parent plant requires. Bach root is a minute tube, and through it the nourishment obtained from the soil is drawn. If you have not dug and irenched anu "worked". your ground befc.re the time of. pl...

The Alpine Obserber. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH, 1917 [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 February 1917

TOc JUpwe ©bserber. FRIDA.Y, FEBHUARX 9.TIJ, 1917 ON the 14th inst. a conference of Shires in the North-Hast will take place at the Shire Ha)l, Bright, and the question set down lor discussion is one that not only concerns this district, but every farming centre in the State, and, we venture to say, in the Commonwealth. We refer to the spread of the weed known as St. John's Wort. Governments and shire councils in the past have attempted to grapple with the problem, but in every instance almost the attempt has been so spasmodic and feeble that little or po good has been accomplished. Still the weed flourishes and increases, and in consequence the fertile lands of the north-east and other parts of the State are seriously threatened. In our own immediate district the position is Berious. This year the growth of the weed has been most alarming, and landowners who prior to this season could count only small patches on their holdings, now look with despair almost on the areas covered. Whi...

Distressed Circumstances. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 February 1917

Distressed Circumstances. In the affairs of life circumstances are apt to take, charge. Sometimes we are victims to the frown of For tune; at others pain afflicts us and hampers our efforts. Yet are we men and born to' struggle. Intelligence must aid us to grapple with circum stances, and to endeavor to ward off Fortune's and Nature's blows. Many people go through life handicapped by suffering from common ailments such as rheumatism, gout, lumbago, neuralgia, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, bil iousness, jaundice, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. These people are unaware that their suffering may be due to the retention in the blood of uric and biliary poisons, owing to in efficient action o£ the kidneys and liver, the organs whose function is to remove such poisons from the system, and that, if the kidneys and liver were restored to health and ac tivity, the pain would necessarily cease.

Bright Town Band. PROPOSAL TO RE ORGANISE CARRIED. THERE was not a large attendance o* townspeople and bandsmen at the Fire Brigade Hall on Wednesday evening, when the proposal to re-organise the band was discussed. Mr J.

It was for the meeting now to elect a chairman. Mr E. J. Delany moved and Mr P. W. Sumner seconded, that Mr Tozer be voted to the chair. Chairman explained that the facts were as Mr Lewis had stated, and steps had already been taken to re-organiae when Mr Lewis took the initiative. The difficulty had been the want of a cornet p...

He's in th' R.F.A., tha knows, en' ho tells me he's on th' eighteen-pounders. Now what licks me is this. Our Bill says there's eight men an' six horses to each gun.

DULY EXPLAINED. Truthful James and the New Machine [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 February 1917

DULY EXPLAINED. Truthful James and the New Machine While I was running a bolt cutter at the Rock Island shops iu Chicago, writes a contributor to "Railway and Locomotive Engineering," I boarded at a house much frequented by loco motive engineers and firemen. These men talked a great deal about their tremendous feats in getting over cer tain hills without the help of a second locomotive. My opposite neighbor at a table, a young fellow who ran a lathe in the shop, grew tired of this monotonous bragging; he thought he was entitled to do a little talking himself. One evening he called out to me: "Well, I went over and saw that new machine to-day, and it's astonish ing the fine work it does." "How does it work?" I inquired. "Well," said James, "by means of a pedal attachment, a fulcrumed lever converts a vertical reciprocating mo tion into a circular movement. The principal part of the machine is a huge disc that revolves in a vertical plane. Power is applied through the axis of the disc...
