Dyspeptics Need not Diet. A SIMPLE MEANS OF PRE VESTING FOOD FERMEN TATION. Food fermeutatiou is the cause of nil the discomfort and pain dys peptics suffer. It does not neces sarily follow, however, tlmt in or der to obtain relief they must deny themselves the enjoyment they de rivo from mating so-called indiges tible luxuries. The most satisfac tory method of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent the fermentation from occurring ut all, and this can be done by a very simple means. It must first be ex plained that most of the foods we nut contain a certain quantity of acid-forming elements, and indi gestible foods, of course, contain ft larger proportion. When these foods are eaten, the acid collects, irritates the walls of the stomach, and causes the food to fariiiBUt whileitis digesting. This ferment ing food also gives off gas which distends the 6loiuae.li, causing that full, uncomfortable feeling soo'ften uotlced after eating. The root of tho trouble is the food fermenta...

...Ballan Shire By-laws... [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 6 March 1914
...Ballan Shire By-laws... So many changes have takeu place in the shire's officers in recent years, mid as no record had been kept, none of the councillors could ! speak with any certainty as to what ! by-laws were in forcc. Mr Kelly (shire secretary) suggested that a search be made for the old minute books, and so ascertain what really ■ had been done. Mr Jas. Ii. Walsh, by request, undertook to do the j work. Commencing in the year 1853, he made a careful search of the minute books, and compiled a list of all by-laws passed. These were surmitted to Messrs Dugdale and Creber, shire solicitors, who pointed out that many of the old by-laws were useless and inoperat ive, and might just as well be re pealed ; but they did not think-that it would be advisable by any means to repeal all the by-laws. The num bering of some of them might be in accurate; but that did not make the by-law invalid.

The spoils of an elephant killed in self-defence must bo handed over to the district authority.
