AND TRAMWAY MEN SHOULD USE MR. CHARLES ROCK, of 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, 33 years in the Melbourne Tramway and O.B. Company, writes, on 2/4/12 : CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "In December, 1911, I was laid up with pleurisy, so serious the doctor consulted another. For three days MY TEMPERA TURE WAS 104 DEGREES. MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, bat through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. Me advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine.' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they werevthe TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand medicine. Had my wife paid £49 for the bottle she would have had good value. I have seen a lot of testimonials about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what I find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give a proper value of that medicine. (Signed) CHARLES ROCK." This is n remarkable letter, but then, CU'MKN'iS VON'lC is a remarkable medicine that...
PHYSICAL CULTURE DISPLAY [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
PHYSICAL CULTURE DISPLAY On Wednesday evening, 7th insfc., ''Monac,"physical culture expert, and his assistants, gave an exhibition in the local Mechanics' hall of physical cul ture, weight lifting, wrestling, and living statuary. The attendance would not have done credit to a, sixpenny picture show, only about 70 being pre sent, but, nevertheless, "Monac" gave &lt;ui interesting lecture and a remarkable demonstration of muscular develop ment and control. In his opening re marks he reminded the audience of the good results obtained by considering health, and the. manner in which facts were placed before those present left no doubt of the speaker's knowledge of his subject. A. number of cardinal rales were explained . firstly by taking advantage of fresh air, sleeping in the open being advocated; secondly, the care of the teeth ; thirdly, the value of exercise and deep breathing for devel oping and makiDg tho lungs healthy ; J fourthly, thorough mastication of pro perly selec...
AUSTRALIA'S NEED. INDUSTRIAL IDEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
AUSTRALIA'S NEED. INDUSTRIAL IDEALS. (By J. MacMaster, Essendon). The opening of the Federal Session and the approaching elections for the Legislative Assembly, remind us that, we are face to face with a supreme crisis in the history of the Common wealth. So far as War is concerned the younger men have risen to the occasion ; men ready to fight for Aus tralia and the Empire are many, their enthusiasm is undoubted. But battles not less important have to be fought in the industrial arena, and the question of the hour is, "Will the elder men re spond to the unique demand made on their heads and their hearts." European papers, which have come to hand since war was declared, assert that a new spirit is manifesting itself in the conduct of industrial affairs. The patriotism which has always in spired the true soldier is now taking possession of the business men whose aims in the past have been so miserably narrow. Now, right through Great Britain, many men of outstanding financial ability...
PATRIOTIC DANCE AT COWWARR. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 15 October 1914
PATRIOTIC DANCE AT COW WARR. A second dunce in aid of the Pat riotic- fund was held in the Mechanics' Hall on Thursday night last. The weather was much more favorable to a large attendance than on the previous occasion, and as before, the gathering, was a representative one, and all pre sent seemed to thoroughly enjoy thera celvoa. Crowe's orchestra of four jyr fortners supplied splt'iulld* music, and two visitors, Mr Breheny and Mr Jacomh, favored with songs and reci tations during the evening. It is expected that the net preceed9 will be about £11, which, added to the proceeds of the previous dance, will make a total sum of about L23 to be divided between the Lord Mayor's and Belgian Funds. The Indies provided a splendid sup per, and carried out the work in that department in first class style. The thanks of the committee is duo to the Mechanics' Hall committee for granting the free use of the hall on both occasions, the only expenses in curred being those for music.

MAPS FOR THE BLIND. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
MAPS FOR THE BLIND. The most, remarkable map of Lou don yet conceived is now contemplated for the use of the blind. It. is a map that will convey to the sightless through tho sensitive tips of their fingers a true mental impression of the position of the main thoroughfares, and the means of access to them. This map will be '' drawn'' in relief, and will consist of a combination of dots and daahes, a medium that has already provided for the sightless what had - before boon denied to them. Already the blind are in possession of the most complete series of plans of London's underground railways that are available for public use. They are able, by the aid of eleven .embossed charts, to study in dotail tho routes of each tube system, tho metro politan and the district railways, and can follow without any possibility of error the complete inner circle of the whole network of underground service!, j
RANDOM READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
RANDOM READINGS. (By Silas Snell). "It's an ill wind that blows no one any good," the proverb says. The present lamentable war has achieved for the colonies and the Motherlnnd what no amount of legislation could accomplish half so well, namely, the practical federation-a federation in nnioy of feeling and oneness of purpose -of the British Empire. Statesmen have often discussed the practicability of Imperial Federation, but in a moment, as it were, the thing is accomplished, not by deeds and commercial stipula tions, but at the blast of the war trumpet. The loyalty of Canada and Australia-&lt;i loyalty expressed, not in words alone, but in blood and money the offers of Indian princes to assist British arms, show how strong and deep is the feeling of patriotism and fervent love for the old Flag in every part of the King's dominions. The war has given a tonic to_ the race, and an opportunity of showing the magni ficent vigor and unitedness of the British people. Not only so, b...

Correspondence. RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION STATE SCHOOLS. ( To the Editor). Sir,-I read with .interest the article in your last issue under the above heading, written by your rather versant correspondent, Silas Snell. I heartily endorse all'he Btates. By all means keep our schools purely free, secular, and compulsory. If to preach the doc trines and tenets of religious observ ance for one hour one day in the week monopolises the whole time of a specially trained clergyman, how is the schoolmaster going to assimilate and impart to his scholars, 'midst his other mult firicus duties*, a correct interprn. tation of Scripture lessons] We will suppose for the moment that a Pro testant version were adopted; the teacher has given his lesson to the full satisfaction of oithodox Jones, but where does Brown come in] Amen is i too slow for him. He wants a somer sault in mid-air, with a terrifying (Brown calls it soul-stirring) hallelujah. Again if a thing is worth doing it should be done well. What ...

FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE HOW SOME SECURED SUCCESS. 1. Cultivate and perfect yaur ideas Experiment. . The world is eager for something new, which, however, sim ple it may be, will save labor, or ex pense, or do things better. Let it be moro convenient, or promote pleasure rcduoe waste. People who handle thinga in every day uso are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capital ists of to-morrow. Bead the splendid advice that £dison gives. Learn the procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for. your rights by becoming a patenteses. 2. If that workman or foremn , or your ingenious friend has produced a clover invention put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. P.

BEET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
BEET NOTES. Beet thinning operations are proceed ing slowly, due to the extreme dryness of the weather, but as there appears to be a tendency to rather unduly delay the thinning work the following notes should be of special interest : The importance of prompt and proper thinning of the young beets is a matter that heretofor has not been fully realised by the growers in this district. In other countries this important fea ture has been demonstrated time and again. One authority states, "It is better to begin when the beets are too small rather than to let them go so long that in thinning the last beets the work will have been so delayed that they are suffering from want of atten tion. The larger the beets the more the roots of those to be left will be dis turbed, and the harder the condemned oues will come out. If they pull hard the tops are apt to be broken off, and the roots will add forth new foliage, so that double beets are the result." Truman G. Palmer states : " When the beets...
NEW AERONAUTIC RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
NEW AERONAUTIC RECORDS. The French military dirigible balloou Adjutant Vineenot, piloted by Goorges Joux, and carrying eight passengers, has made a new world's record for con tinuous navigation by dirigibles. It re mained in the air for 35 hours and 20 minutes. The Gorman dirigible Zep pelin L3 established the previous re cord of 3-1 hours and 59 minutes in May in a flight from Friedrichshaffen to Berlin. The L3 measures more than 25,000 cubic meters; the Adjutant Vin eenot 9000 cubic maters. The Germans still maintain the load in aviation, par ticularly from the standjmnt of dura tion. Keceutly Horr Landmann, with a 75 horse-power Albatross biplane, re niaiued aloft, circling the Johannisthal aerodrome, for 21 hours and 49 min utes, thus adding well over three hours to the best previous record. He finally descended because of fatigue, and not from lack of fuel. The Warraambool town council has received intimation from Mr. Murray that tho Public Works department is taking steps to b...

A HUNDRED YEARS AGO [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
A HUNDRED YEARS AGO The only matches sold in London 100 years ago were cedar splints tipped with a paste of chlorate of potash and sugar. On dipping ono of those into a little bottle containing asbestos wetted with sulphuric acid, and withdrawing it, a flanio burst forth. Fifty in a box, to gether with the bottle, wore sold for a shilling. The matches invented by John Walker in 1827-the first to ig nite on sandpaper-were sold at tho same price. Owing to the damage caused by the heads flying- off after ignition, tho uso of those matches was prohibited in France and Germany. Six years later came the invention of lueifers, tho first matches "with phos phorus in their composition. These, too, woro originally sold at a shilling a box, and when in course of time the price fell to a penny a motto from "Paradise Lost" was suggested for the' boxes, "0, Lucifer! how greatly art thou fallenl"

UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT [Newspaper Article] — Heyfield Herald — 22 October 1914
UNSINKABLE LIFEBOAT Novol Jife-saving apparatus is carried by tho steamer Recto, which arrived at Dover recently from Norway. Slung from her davits is to be seen a lifeboat, which' bears a striking resemblance to a submarine, sylindrical hull and con ning tower complete. It is of sufficient size to accommodate the whole of the steamor's crew of fifteen hands, and is entered through the conning-tower, the hatch of which may be closed. The craft is self-righting and above the tower is a small mast on which a sail can be rigged. It is claimed for this lifeboat that it iB unsinkable unless it should be stove in, and that it can live in tho roughest sea. The Recto also carries a motor life-boat of the- open type, and has probably the finest life saving equipment of any mercantile vessel of her size.
