30-YEARS-OLD ECZEMA. SKIN LIKE RAW MATERIAL. SPLENDID CURE BY ZAM.BUK. Telling how Zam-Buk proved equal to curing Eczema that for 30 years had defied doctors and all other treatment, Mr Dix, of 44 Lower street, Leeder ville, Perth, W.A., says : " For thirty years I suffered fearful pain and misery from an outbreak of burning, itching eczema, round the joint of my right knee. The constant irritation was intolerable, and as I couldn't help scratching, the disease gradually got worse and worse. Many a time I have scratched until the blood has run down my fingers and the skin looked just like a piece of raw meat. "All my efforts to find a cure were fruitless, and I had doctors' treatment in Adelaide, Broken Hill and Victoria. I had just about lost all hope of ever being free of this awful disease when a friend gave me a pot of Zam-Buk. "I really used it to please him, but the applications brought such relief that I soon sent for another pot from the chemist. I continued to apply Zamn-Bu...

CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] OUR WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 February 1914
OORRESPONDENOE. [To the Editor.] OUR WATER-SUPPLY. Sii,- In reading the report of the Borough Council meeting in your last issue, I notice that watering gardens with the hose is forbidden, in order to conserve the somewhat scanty supply available. Now, in the higher portions of the town many people have not been able to use a hose tor weeks past, for the simple reason that there is no wa ter when the appointed time for water. ing gardens comes round. As far as I can see, the water is used by those residents in the lower portion of the town before it has a chance to come right up. The first thing to do -is to stop the absolute waste of water in the croquet lawns and the bowling green. Practically every morning there is a small sheet of water covering the croquet lawns, while Alexandra Park, etc., also use their share. However, it does not do to discourage the use of water when it is paid for by meter, and the only real and proper remedy is to fix meters to every house, and c.arge for...

GETTING A DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 February 1914
GETTING A DRINK. In connection with reports on the Closer Settlement system some good stories are being told about some of the ol time settlers, who, singular to say. iinlaged to make a good deal of nowy on properties that are now de clared to be useless. One of the most a?nusing is about a squatter in the Wes tern district, who belonged to a hard drinking family. The gentleman in question went. so far beyond the limit that he was brought -under what was loalt known as'the Blackfellow's Act. In other words a pntohibition order was la:,,l bytv the local magistrates, for hidling publicans to supply him with liquor. The station supplies of grog were kept from him as far as possible. On il y he and the cook, also a hard drinikcr, were alone at the station, but ith?out an available drop of whisky, tloughI ",Jack" knew there should be a live gallon keg of Long John some wher abhout. The cook explained that J:lck's" brothers had, to keep it oul of is reach, hoisted it up in a big tree. ian...
