GOING FOR THE DOCTOR. A thrilling story of what a man will do to save the life of a fellow settler in the sparsely inhabited stretches of the Northern Territory is told in a report which Dr Gilruth, the Administrator of the Northern Territory, has for warded to the Minister for External Affairs (Mr Glynn):—" On January 13, " says the report, "a young settler on the Daly River, named Frederick liolton, preparatory to embarking in a native canoe, handed a loaded Win chester from the bank of the river to a black boy in the boat. Carelessly he liauded the gun, with the muzzle pointed luwards himself. The gun was at full cock. The boy naturally grasped it in the usual way, and the ilSuIi was that it was fired, the bullet passing through one of Bolton's lungs. The wounded man dragged himself to his residence, and the boy went for the nearest assistance, which happened to be Mr Love, the Protector of Abo rigines. Mr Love burred to the spot, and found the young man conscious, but severely w...

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PREVENTING FOOD FERMENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 March 1914

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PRE VENTING I'OOD FERMENTA TION. l'"ood fermentation is the cause of all the discomfort and pain dyspeptics suffer. It does not necessarily follow, however, tint in order to obtain relief they must deny themselves the enjoy ment they derive from eating so-called indigestible luxuries.
