Dr.- Laine: says that;-a course ofrocking-chair after every meal, the oscillationsbeing quiet'and regular, "stimulates gastro-intestinal peristait isni," and that dyspeptics should;; take notice. The chair ought to be light,'so .that rocking requires no oll'ort, and sufliciently inclined backward that tlie person may lie rather than sit - in'.it Physicians will agree that Dr. Laine lias done Americans a real service.

Allora Spring Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
Allora Spring Wheat. We have by no means heard the last of the Allora Spring Wheat, . This being, 'tween seasons the further con sideration of the matter is in abeyance. It is just as well, however, not to post-? pone the question too long." Sowing time approaches and farmers will soon be seeing to their seed wheat. It is, therefore, well to know how .this'variety is viewed by consumers. Millers are the sole consumers of grain, It is them, therefore, who can give the best opinion. One of the leading city millers says emphatically that he will buy any quantity *of Allora Spring at full market prices, that is at the highest price current for prime Riverina grain. Already, this season, he has had a small quantity and pronounced it ex cellent for mixing with the harder and darker varieties hailing from the south. In coior it would be difficult to beat, but it has scarcely the strength of the Steinwedel or Purple Straw varieties. There are, however, many pastry cooks and high-class baker...
