The Coalition Ministry. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 23 February 1917

The Coalition Ministry. Coaliti >* gives, ua a Btrong Ministry, and at the present moment that is a matter of eupreme importance. While tho war laits odmiui-tration should come first, legislation should be quite a secondary matter. Of all tho 111 members of the Federal Parliament only 24 are Ministerialists, and of the 24 only two are generally regarded as ^imoDgst the outstanding able men of the House. Clearly then Mr Hughes was at a great disadvantage when he formed a cabinet 'and, as the hands of any Minister of Defence are necessarily full, there was a very real danger that the Commonwealth would pase under the erray of a one man Ministry. On tho other hand the 39 Liberal members of the parliament include eereral poli ticians whose experience and ability have impressed tho country. Mr Cook Mr Glynn, Mr Watt, Sir John Forrest and Senator Millen are ail members whose name* were on the tips of electors' tongues whenever the formation of a Btrong Ministry is discussed.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE KAISER? [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE KAISER? By Major-General Sir Alfred Turner, K.C.B. "First catch your hare" is a most salutary maxim. Still, it is highly in teresting to speculate as to the fate that may befall the man who has de-1 liberately and designedly prepared this war, and who is responsible for all the death and destruction, sor row and misery, which it has caused. Having regard to the fate which be fell the great Napoleon at the hands of the Allies, a far worse one should be in store for the infamous Kaiser and the Holienzollern brood, with whom no mutual terms of peace are possible, as they and their military accomplices have no regard for hon or, and would treat them like scraps of paper whenever it suited them to do so. What is to be the fate of the Kaiser? What does the future hold for the Crown Prince? What will happen to the Hohen r.ollern family when the Allies have achieved a complete victory, and won the peace that will rid tho world of the Prussian bully? I have heard it s...

Relieves Stomach Trouble, or Money Back. A REMARKABLE GUARANTEE [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

. Relieves Stomach Trouble, orgMoney Back. AJREMARKABLE GUARANTEE THE contention of numerous authorities that over 90 per cent, of all stomach troubles are either directly or indirectly due to/acidity or food fermentation, seems to be amply proved^ibyjthe relief experienced by sufferers, who take half a teaspoouful of &{surafedj(magnesia in a little water immediately after eating. Many dyspeptics, however, have tried so many highly praised remedies with out obtaining relief, that they have begun to tbi'k nothing can help them. It is therefore a matter of pleasant surprise to these people, to learn that every bottle of bisuratcd magnesia is accom panied by a binding guarantee to return the purchase price if it fails to give complete satisfaction-proof positive that bisuraUd magnesia* isj|the most reliable remedy known for dyspepsia, indigestion, acidity, flatulence and stomach troubles cenerallv.

Where the Change Was. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

Where the Change Was. A poor woman, who kept a shop in ' an Irish village, and who was troubled with a husband who could scarcely be considered a credit to his family, I one day found herself a widow through I the sudden demise of her spouse. A lady who frequently made small purchases at the shop called to see I her and offer her sympathy, though I well knowing that the man's death must in a certain sense come as a re-' lief, as the wife had often suffered from his violence. She was not, how ever, quite prepared for the stoical way in which the wife took her be reavement. "I am.sure, Mrs. Flaherty, you must miss your husband," said the lady. "Well, mum," was the widow's re ply, "it do seem queer to go into the shop and find something in the till."

Saving Money in the Home. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

: Saving Money in the Home. THE editor of "Everylady's Journal' proclaims the February aumber, just out, to be s great inoney-saviog and money making issue. His ground for so doing is a o!uBier of articles in* which readers are shown how Co make interesting hobbies develop into payable home industries, and how to manufacture in ttre home many of tboas household necessities-Buch, for example, as bottled fruits-which are usually obtained from the storekeeper. The practical note is very strongly Bounded in this number of "Everylady's Journal," but there are also many interest ing articles of a general character. For example, the Honorable W. A. Holman, Premier of New South Wales, writes on the subject of children and rooviog pictures; Mr Allan Wilkio talks about a Shakespearian Theatre for Australia ; and Miss Mary Card gives one of her fascinat ing lesBons in crochet work. Other items of note are a new serial and one or two abort stories, whilst the usual budget of frea paper patterns...

"SOME" BRIDGES. Wonderful Examples of Engineering Skill. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

"SOME" BRIDGES. Wonderful Examples of Engineering Skill. The Cernavoda Bridge across the Danube, which the Rumanians are reported to have blown up in order to prevent its falling into the hands ot their enemies, is by far and away the biggest structure of its kind in the world. It is over eleven miles long, as against the two miles of the Tay Bridge, or the one and a-half miles of the Forth Bridge. Even the great Montreal Bridge was quite dwarfed by that built at Cernavoda, for the latter is more than five times as long as its famous Canadian prototype. In Mexico is a bridge built by an American railway company in order to carry their line across an inlet at the head of the Cult of. California, near the port of Guaymas, and this is generally regarded as being the second longest one in the world.- It is, however, a trestle bridge, and of course bears no comparison either as regards strength, durability, or or nateness with its Cernavoda rival. The longest single-span bridge in the wo...

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. VIII. THE "VERY CRISIS OF OUR FATE." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 2 March 1917

AUSTRALIA PLAYS THE GAME No. VIII. THE "VERY CRISIS OF OUR FATE." We are "at the very crisis of our fate,"' Mr. Bonar Law. warned the House of Commons the other day. Therefore, it' was not a time when ' legislators : might entertain them selves with controversial legislation. It is only a time when every thought, every ounce, of physical effort, must be devoted to winning the war. The situation' in which Great Britain finds herself placed to-day is more critical than at any time in her his tory. With an ugly snarl Germany has thrown herself upon her chief opponent, determined to crush her by'the foulest means possible, seing that all others have failed. Since the outset of the war Germany has thrown away all civilised restraints. She has fought as the Turks fought when- they all but conquered Christ endom, with the utmost cruelty and disregard for property and life, and with'actual slavery for the conquer ed. Never before has a civilised na tion in war crucified non-combatant life w...

TOe ^Upine (Dbserber. FRIDAY, MARCH 2ND. 1917. WIDESPREAD interest is being created iu the proposed conference of municipali ties which is to be held at Wangaratta on 19th April, to consider ways and means of attacking that great menace to land-holders, St. John's Wort. This week. Mr E. J. Delany issued circulars to 89 municipalities throughout the State, inviting their co-operation in the matter,- and it is expected that the response will be of such a character as will awake an apathetic Government to the sense of its responsibilities. Land holders must also become apprised of the danger that threatens them, and while no doubt every effort will be made to force Government action on Crown landB, it would be useless to.attempt to combat the pest unless simultaneous action is teken all round. A united front must be presented, and until this is attempted, very little good can be expected. We are aware that the weed has got a good hold in the North-East portion of the State, but it is s...
