RAILWAY AND TRAIV1WAY MEN SHOULD USE MR. CHARLES ROCK, of 42 Gladen Street, East Brunswick, 33 years in ihc 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, but through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He 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 were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand mcdicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would have had good value.

THE END OF HIS TETHER [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914
THE END OF HIS TETHER By IAN GROSVENOR. A Failure! The reflection was far from being a pleasant one to Roderick Massing ham. As a matter of fact, it came near to irritating him into a complete loss of temper, as, lounging in the seat of a deck cliair, he watched the blue outlines of Table Mountain fade away on tho horizon. "Two years wasted," he muttered viciously out from between his teeth. "Two years all but a month. It's the first time in my life I've been so com pletely up against a rock." "Frankly, I had expected better luck at your hands. When I told you the nature of the task confronting you I had excellent hopes of your success.
