WE ALL DO. Do you suffer from "cltisfc throat?" And, if not, do you know what it is? Thousands of people aro perplexing them selves to-day as to why tlicy aro suffering from sore throat. . . Said a celebrated' physician recently: "Tens uf thousands liavo it at tho pro sent momient. It arises from tho con tinued sunshine and tlio lack of rain. I urn finding vicitims everywhere. Tho signs aro a soreness in the throat and an irritating little cough. Tho 'dust throat' comes 011 iii tho spring and autumn. Tho cause is that the loads, which all tho ivin . tor have been moro or less dampj aro now drying, and the dust, often invisible, but laden with microbes, is permeating tho air. Ijiquorico is tho best thing to removo ; tho soreness and tho cough."

The mate and the helmsman also heard it, but the' former lacked oimagination, and although lie was certainly; interested," lie nearly blew the watch's-head off when ho ventured to suggest mermaids. The helmsman did not feel quite happy, but- . ho had to stick to the wheel. The watch was palo with, terror, but lie kept silence owing to the mate's complimentary re ferences to his courage and abilities. Slowly the sound began to move along the ship's side, becoming Jnore and more agonised as it approached. This annoyed tho mato, and, going to the side of the vessel, lie waited till ho had located...

WITH THE "HUMPTY. HERDS." Camels, Not Horses, Made Travel Possible in Arabia. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911
WITH THE "HUMPTY. HERDS." Camels, Not Horses, Made Travol Possible in Arabia. In Arabia, travel Is only possible by ?means of camels. The prancing Arabian^ steed is a myth to the traveller in the peninsula. I never saw a. horse worth looking at in tlioso desert regions; indeed I cannot see how horses could be bred to perfection in such a herb less land. Without- the camel life would bo im possible. The "huinpty herds" are solo product of tho desert, and 011 them one must wander from well to well if one de termines to brave this most inhospitablo and dangerous of journeys. Camels form tho chief concern of the Arab's existence. They supply him with all his wants, tents, food, clothing, and transport, henco tho breeds are well solectecf, and pedigrees carefully kept. Tho tribe I was with owned iinmonso herds of camels, chiefly of highly-bred dromedaries, capable of great endurance, and of goinp without water for long per iods, but thoy also had a. few heavily built- baggage camels.

ROBERT RAIKES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 February 1911
ROBERT RAIKES. Reference1 to the good work done in the world by printers, apart from their trade, is not infrequent nowadays in the Press. iMost of us never hear of these worthies until mention is made of their good deeds or attention drawn to the beneficial ef fects their work has had on tile world. This will bo sufficient exctiso for men tioning the praiseworthy efforts ot an old-time printer who 1ms left an indelible mark. indeed, his good work is im measurable in more ways than one. As a printer and the founder of Sunday schools, Robert ltaikes, who was born at Gloucester in 1736, and died in 1811, deserves especial commendation. As a printer he wis noted for good work. He was n second Howard, becoming interest ed in prisoners and helping them with pen, influence and money. Noting the deplorable condition of the children of his native town, ho started a Sunday-school to teach them religion and morality. His was a Sunday-school, because on that . day ho could reach hotter tlio ch...
