A HOME MADE HAIR GROWER. THAT DOES MARVELS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 March 1914

A HOME; MADE HAIR GROWER. THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last years announce ments have appeared occasional y telling how to make a really good hair tonic that will actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have obtained such remarkable results. One la^.y writes that immediately after read ing the formula, she went to her chemist, and had him put up as directed, 1 ounce of Lavona de Composce. quarter dram of Men thol Crystals, ana three ounces ot Bay Rum. She took this home, and although her hair had been falling out terribly, and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and de'ighted to find that the falling out ot the hair stopped immediate'y, and the ha r itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact she states that it has already grown over eight in ches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brigh ter, glossier, and more luxuriant than ever, and it is still growing. She rubbed the tonic in...

RABBIT POISONING. CARROTS AND STRYCHNINE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 March 1914

RABBIT POISONING. CARROTS AND STRYCHNINE. (By.FRANK ALLAN). The following information on rabbit destruction, will be found interesting to landowners, who .,are endeavouring to exterminate the pest: Act in exactly the same way as with apples, excepting that, as the carrot is a fciry bait, it is necessary ?io soak the baits for a while in sugar syrup, and then drain off, and use. Not only is the sugar an additional attraction, but it will 'also hold and absorb the strych nine. I cannot too strongly recom mend the use of apples and carrots Nothing but the greatest of suc cess has attended their use. It cannot fail if the directions are implicitly followed. I have em phasised the making of the baits square for the following reasons: When the rabbit's suspicious na ture (and it has plenty of it) is lulled by the free feeding, it comes to the poisoned bait free and al ways eager. The bait being square lOffers a nice point for a bite, ho matter from which side the rabbit approaches it. It ...

From reports made by several members at fea-. gue frneetings, the presence of rab bits in the district has been pro ved, and the need for keeping the pest down to the minimum has been made evident by the abun dant 'experiences of other districts.

FEDERAL ISSUES. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 March 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES. COST OF COMMONWEALTH DEFENCE. " When a nation takes time by the fo.i-elcck and begins to get it selt re&tly for'war, the Chiefs of the General Staffs in other parts i>f the world turn that page in their diaries down, timd that particular nation is not troubled much." So said General Sir Ian Hamilton, when addressing the .officers of the Victorian Military District and their guests on Monday evening. No doubt the General was right ; the wolf-is always more ready to face the lamb than the lion. More than that, the experiences of Great Britain in South Africa, and Rus sia in its struggle with Japan, have shown what the comparatively fe.v can do in battle when they are soldiers to the backbone. There is, however, another fide to the question, one which was stressed by Senator Millen on Mon day and by Mr. Cook on Tuesday Our preparations for war may se cure for us the blessings "of last ing peace ; but the premium the Commonwealth is paying for this particular ...

There are four clubs in the asso- ; elation: Bairnsdale, Warragu'., Traralgon and Sale, but the lat ter did not send a team.

In the draw for places Bairnsdale got the bye, and Warragui and Traralgon teams started play about /10.30.

FLYNN'S CREEK PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 24 March 1914

FLYNN'S CREEK PICNIC. A very successful picnic was held at Lower Flynn's Creek on Thursday last. The spot chosen, the pines near the school, was an ideal one. the trees affording ample shade. After the toothsome fare provided by the ladies had been partaken of, a good sports pro gramme was run oft". Throughout the racing was very keen, and pri zes ot toys were provided for all of the many children present. The married ladies' race caused great amusement, owing to the number of dead-heats until the winner was finally decided on. The open handicap was won by J'. Richardson, after a close contest. The (hurdle race resulted in a dead heat between J. Richardson and J. Fryatt, but the latter scored easily in the run off. Among the visitors from Traral gon,.\vas Mr. Mac. Christensen, who. for a considerable portion of the afternoon, gave the children and young ladies rides in his car. Great credit is due to the ladies (who assisted in every way to make .the picnic a success.)

They are get ting in early this yeaj', and intend to have everything well in hand when the opening matches com mence. The club was very suc cessful last year, and played off for the premiership with Yinnar. .They also had a successful year financially, and finished up with a credit balance in the Savings Bank of £27 lis, which is all the more gratifying, seeing that the club was in a " bad way" at the commencement ot the season. There seems to be every prospect ot Traralgon being again strongly represented en the football field this year, and if a suitable com petition can be arranged, the pub lic may look forward to some very keen contests during the winnter months. 1 ; .

MQONDARRA Bush fires have been with us since late in January, but they did not become very aggressive until about ten days ago, when a windy day brought them from all direc- tions. Last Sunday week Mr. Elton and two of his near neigh- bors were nearly burnt out. But for plenty of assistance it is cer- tain that Mr. Elton's entire home stead would have been demolished. The 'house caught fire over a dozen times, land sparks and cinders were blown in on top of the ceiling, and eventually burnt their way through The Inew public hall at Gould also haa a narrow escape. The fire came within a few feet of it at one time, when all the residents were battling for their own homes. The name of Harris is to be al- tered to " Erica," in order to bring the post office and railway, station under the same designa- tion. Hitherto it has been Harris railway station and the Upper Moondarra post office right op- posite. Postal department decli- ned to call the post office Harris, because of duplication,...
