THROAT AFFECTIONS AND HOARSENESS.--All suffering from irritation of the throat and hoarseness will be agreeably surprised at the almost immediate relief afforded by the use of "Brown's Bronchial Troches." These famous "lozenges" are now sold by most respectable chemists in this country. People troubled with a "hacking cough," a "slight cold," or bronchial affections, cannot try them too soon, as similar troubles, if allowed to progress, result in serious Pulmonary and Asthmatic affections.

Cr Ginn and the Press. His Name was not Published. He makes a Song about it. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914

uCr Gin n a snd ie h res His Name was not Published. He makes a Bong about it. Because the Age newspaper, through an oversight on the part of the reporter, did not publish Cr Ginn's name as having taken part in the division on Cr Naylor's motion on the Prahran Town Hll site question which was disoussed at tile council meeting on March 16, Cr Glnn took up about ten minutes a: the council meeting on Monday even log last mjking a complaint ab.ut it. The Age (said Or Gian) published the names and speeches of leading lights of the council, but my poor humble self was left out. Cr Embling-Sue them ! (A laugh). Cr Ginn-Those who have not been bitten by a snake don't know the results. I am not going to stand still and allow myself to be villified in any manner whatever. The public put their own construction on mat terslike this. This is a momentous question. People knowing me by opinions given of me by others might thbink I am a slippery little customer, and that I dodged the question of th...

Cr Naylor, the Police, and the Bye-Laws. CRITICISM IN COUNCIL. Included amongst the acoounts that came up for `payment at the Prahran Council meeting on Monday evening was the item - "Sergeant Noble, prosecuting officer, March quarter, '5." Cr Naylor questioned whether the police were active enough in enforc. ing the council's bye-laws. Cr Chambers said he had first heard Cr Naylor make such a com plaint 15 years ago. Cr Naylor-I have no feeling against the Sergeant. I don't know him. Cr Embling-I'll bet he knows you. (Laughter). Cr Naylor-Probably he does. We pay him £20 a year, but he has nothing to do. It is the men under him, but they do the work as they should. I have seen bicycles on the footpath, but nothing has been said, Lads drawing boxes on wheels take to the footpaths, not caring whether they knocked people over. The police never interfered. Cr Embliog-Don't forget ladies bat pins! The account was passed for paY' ment.

Fulton Street. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914

Fulton Street. At the St. Kilda Council meeting on Monday evening last, Miss W. Francis wrote complaining of the condition of the road and footpaths in Fulton- street, which were in a very bad state of repair.   The surveyor said that he had in- spected the street. It would cost   £225 to put it into proper repair. Cr. Hughes moved that the matter   be attended to at once, as he knew from his own knowledge that it was   very necessary. Cr Barnet seconded the motion.   Cr Hewison moved as an amend- ment that it be deferred till they got     a financial statement to see how they stood. He thought that there were more important streets than Fulton- street that required immediate atten-tion. Cr. Love seconded. Cr. Sculthorpe said that he had traversed a good many of their streets lately, and their condition was a dis- grace to any municipality. Cr. Molesworth thought that the mere fact of a man wr...

HOW Time is Wasted. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 April 1914

How Time is Wasted. Last issue, under the heading of Two Stubborns Council," we made mention of the inconvenience that is being oaused, and the loss of time that would result, owing to the Prahran and St. Kilda Councils meeting on the same evening. A vivid example of this was given last Monday evening, when both these councils met for the despatch of business at 'he same time. A little while back, following the receipt of a communication from the West St. Kilda Progress Association, the Prahran Council appointed three of its number t- act in conjunction with the Association to wait on the St. Klda Ccuncil fir the purpose of urging the latter body to withdraw its opposition to the construction of a tramway through Albert Park. We have mentionel that the Prah ran Council appointed three dele gates, but so far the voices of those delegates have not been heard. How ever, the Prahran Council, at its meeting on Monday evening, received another letter from the West St, Kilda Progress Assoc...

THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 11 April 1914

THE NOSE. * -4--- No stove or furnace that ever was imade by inan can equal. in efficiency I he humian nose. For the nose, in the space of three inches and in tw'o -sedounds of time, can raise the teni perat. re 'of the air it draws . in nearlyh 50deg., and at the same time asturate it withl moisture and thoroighly "purify it. It is also a perfect filter, and thus the imost-iil portant. guardian of the body disease. All air that is breathed into- the lungs should be at a temperature of nearly 90deg. Fahrenheit. It should also lie moist, even wet. Cold, dry air is fine for the outside of the body, but has i:o -place in its interior. In lheating the air the nose works on the principle of a' steam coil. It is not merely tiwo Lubes leiding up into the head, and so do;wn to- the th-rotl,- but -from the bones on cither side three twist ed bones curl out into the piassage, one above the other, each coated with elastic cushions of blood ves sels and tiny glands.
