POREPUNKAH. A concert was given in the Ovens and Eurobin Hall on Friday evening last by the Porepuufcah "Novices" uuder the auspices of the Ovens Vale branch of the Red Cross. The combination is a good one of 16 perforuieis, and their efforts during the evening were highly apprecia ted by the audience. - ' Ths thanks of the ooraraittee are due to the Porepunkah Novices, who not only s'ave their services free, but also paid their own travelling expenses.

REDUCE YOUR FAT. The best feature about "FORMET-1 TES" for reducing fatness is that it1 is absolutely safe and unlike so many fat-reducing methods it produces no weakening efTects. On the contrary, those who have taken "FORMETTES FOR FATNESS" tell you that owing to the increase of appetite which "Formettes" cause, they actually GAIN IN STRENGTH with every pound of excess fat they lose. If YOU want to reduce your weight without dieting or exercising and at a mere nominal cost, the only thing to do is to take "Formettes" for a week or two until you are sufficiently reduced in weight, when you will find the happy results to- be quite perman ent. "Formettes" are sold by all Chemists and most Drapers at 5/3 per carton (one carton frequently be ing all that is required to reduce to normal weight), or they will be for warded under cover direct from S.

McTavish's Compromise. A canny Scot owned a wonderful badger it was reported no dog could tackle. However, a friend of his had a dog he proposed to back against the badger, and a match was in due course made for £100, to come off in two months' time. As the time drew near, there were rumors that all was not right with the dog, and the Scot's friends were mak ing sure of victory fori him; Imagine their surprise and disgust when they heard that McXavisli had accepted £50 as a compromise in lieu of the £100. "You've been done, Mac,V said one. of them. 'The dog is so mangy anil; unfit, he could not kill a rat;" ; , "Ah!" said McTavisli, "I dare say,' I dare say; but my badger is dead."

CHAPTER XIII. Friends in Love. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

CHAPTER XIII. Friends in Love. The diamonds in Mr. Lemuel Lor ritt's shirt were too large for precise good taste, and his laugh was more pronounced than was actually neces sary. His eyes held a curious shine, born of a too;free indulgence in the cup that cheers and also inebriates, and the whole of his appearance be spoke vulgarity. He was in Monte Carlo-doing llont -as he expressed it, and having the time of his life. A couple of boon companions accom panied him, sons of fairly well-known Middleton manufacturers, these vacu ous-minded youths whose fathers had cursed them with an allowance suffi cient to preclude the necessity for work. It is a common fault for self made men to consider their sons of far too much importance to follow in their own footsteps, therefore they give them a considerable push along the road to ruin with their own hands. For the youth who has no need to work for his own solvation, and who further, lias no heritage of leisure to enable him to live a life of e...

The .stucco and entirely artificial magnificence o£ the Casino bored Derek Carboyne to distraction, and lie said as much forcibly, in the fashion of a man who is used, to voice his opinions freely.

V.R.C. Autumn Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

V.R.C. Autumn Meeting. Notwithstanding the fact that we are in the midst of local political ana national turmoil and trouble, it can be accepted that people both in town and country gladly realise that once more wo have the great autumn racing fixture at Flemington to en liven our gloom and to help dissipate sonic o£ the troub'le that surround;, us. If Victorians work hard-and that they do is generally admitted it is equally true that they can be anil are strenuous in their pleasures. Coming, as the March meeting does, after shearing and harvest, when the: result ot the year's rural work can be properly estimated, although, alas, in^ these days of Government pools and price-lixing not realised, pastoralists, agriculturists and rural workers gen erally feel that they have earned a brief respite from that incessant toil which primary producers must con tinue to wage. Although our country population has been denuded of. so many of its best and brightest young men by the demands of the ...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME THE AUTOCRATIC CHARACTER OF GERMAN RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME THE AUTOCRATIC CHARACTER . OF GERMAN RULE. Some extraordinary people still say they would not mind even if we did come, under German rule. They have not got the remotest idea what Ger man rule is like. These are generally people who want the most radical kind of government for themselves. Let us see what kind of government they would get under German rule. First, we must remember that Ger man colonial rule is always German Imperial rule. Under British Imper ial rule the colonies develop their own formation of political govern ment, according to their needs or as pirations. But nothing of this kind can happen under German Imperial ism. The. German colonist can never escape the Imperial rule. Wherever he might be, from the sands of the Sahara to the great ice plains of the Antarctic continent, he can never es cape the Imperial rod. Let us con sider what that rod is. It was fash ioned by Bismarck after the great German triumph over France in 1870, and the desig...

Then Silence Reigned. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

Then Silence Reigned. One of the best stories in P. Laur iston Bullard's "Famous War Corre spondents" is one concerning the late Bennet Burleigh. . .. It was the night before the battle o the Atbara River, and Burleigh spent the time visiting the various troops lying out in the open. "It was whilst walking softly," he wrote, "so as not to disturb light sleepers, that I overheard a sentimen tal Seaforth Highlander say to his comrade: " 'Ah, Tani, how many thousands there are at hame across the sea thinking o' us the nicht!' " 'Right, Sandy,' replied the chum, 'and how many millions there are that don't care a damn. Go to sleep, ye fool'.' ' ? "And silence again fell upon, that corner of the square:"

Not Enough To Do. -As illustrating the Irishman's ready Avit, Mr. Runciman recently told this story concerning a certain colonel, a neighbor of his who, requiring a man servant,'inserted an advertisement in the local weekly. It was specified that applicants must be above military age, and as a matter' of fact the only individual to Come after the job was an Irishman of nearly seventy. "What I want," explained the colonel, "is a .useful man-one who can cook, drive a motor, look after a pair of horses, clean boots and win dows, feed poultry, milk the cow, and do a little painting and paper-hang ing." "Excuse me, sor," said the appli cant, "but what kind of soil have ye here?" "Soil?" snapped the r nel.

Have You Really Got Dyspepsia. THE MAGNESIA TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

Have You Really Got Dys pepsia. THE MAGNESIA TEST. PHVSICIA.V.S say that there are compara tively few cases of true dyspepsia, the majority of the peopie who complain of this justly dreaded ailment being mereiy victims of excessive acidity of the stomach Now there is a simple test whereby anyone can tell whether ihe pain ex perienced after eating is due to excessive acidity or to real dyspepsia. Obtain irom the chemist some bUuraitd magnesia and immediately after your next meal take half a teaspoonful of this in a little water. If, as is more than likely, the symptoms which now distress you, such as heartburn, flatulence, flushed face and ! an uncomfortable feeling of fulness, are j due to acidity you will benefit con- j siderably from the use of bisuratui | magnesia because it instantly neutralises j the dangerous acid and also prevents ail possibility of food fermenting in the stomach. On the other hand, should no benefit follow the use of bhuratrd mag nesia, it may be assumed tha...

The Open Column. [We do not necessarily identify ourseIve3 with opinions expressed in these columns.] THE SHORTAGE OF SUIPS. TO THE EDITOR Sik.-As the einking cf ships seems to be a very real business of war, and the fact that we have millions cf bushels of wheat and other products to ship homf, surely it is up to Australia to put her timber to a good and useful end in Bhtp building. We have 500 or so carpeoters out of work, many being sect to Mildura for employment. There are millions of acrea of good limber destroyed by fires io Australia every jear, ami although millions of feet are imported in:o Aus tralia every year for certain works. I think even Australian timbers would eland a good many journeys to KogUnd. Judging by the severe strains on the pontoons of the local dredges and the enormous amount of work they get through every year, I s'ill believe the best of local timber quite good enough for the fihippirg trade. We have a mania for foreign goods, aal delight to see good ol...

Soldiers' Letters. Oh"E of the most constant- "grievances" ventilated in Parliament ia the oapha'.-trd way in which soldiera' letters are dealt with by those who have charge of this important work. Of course the s'ereo typed reply is always that the Defence Department has no responsibility in thie ma ter, and that it is aoing all possible to ensure, proper delivety of letters and parcels to soldiers. Nevertheless, in stances are constantly quoted of non delivery, and nume'ous li tters have been received from men at the front asking their Australian relatives not to tend any more parcels since tbjie already (eat have not come to bind. Undoubtedly the trouble was much worse in Eaypt than it has been in France, but still it is admitted that there are many thousands of letters unsorted and undelivered in London f»r boys at the front who are anxiously nailing for news from Aus tralia. Wounded men in hospitals seem to fare even worse" than men on active ^service though they may bo more ea...
