Children's Self-Denial. TO HELP THE FIGHTERS. Ik order to help to provide the soldiers who aro lighting for the Empire with gifts of tobacco, the Overseas Club Southern Cross Tobacco Fund within the laBt few weeks has approached the children attending the Sunday Schools of the Commonwealth.

From some schools the amounts which have been forwarded have run Into a number of pounds, while from others it has been meroly a few shillings, which the children could Bcnps together by denying themselves Borne little luxury or some little treat. In every instance the children have shown an extrordinary keen desire to send the men at the front some littlo token from the Homeland. Tho desire seemB to have been all the more keen because the children know that in accordance with the u^ual practice of lio Southern Cross Tobac...

Double Price. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917
Double Price. An old barber, living in a North | Country market town, recently made a clever reply to a farmer who went to his shop to get shaved. It was market day, and several peo- j pie were awaiting their turn, when ; the agriculturist, who was wealthy but inclined to be mean, entered and addressed the barber as follows:-? "I say, Billy, farming pays very badly nooadays; thou ought to shave us for half-price." "Nay, nay," said Billy, who knew his business well. "I ought to Uev double price now, for farmers' faces are twice as long as they used to be." To prevent eggs from bursting while boiling prick one end with a needle before placing in the water. Before placing a sponge cake in the oven to bake, try sprinkling a little fine white sugar over the top. This forms the rich, brown-looking crust that makes bought sponge cakes look so tempting.
HELP TO WIN THE WAR. Patriotic Lending Explained. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917
HELP TO WIN THE WAR. Patriotic Lending Explained. Under the new arrangements made by the Federal Treasurer every man, woman and child in the Common wealth can help to win the war for Britain and the Allies. Except in cases of great poverty there is prob ably no one over the age of 14 years who cannot afford to take up at least a Commonwealth war loan certificate for 17/4 which in three years will be worth £1. Similar certificates have beeii bought largely in Great Britain, where the price is 15/6 and the loan period is five years. Under the Common wealth scheme the sum is loaned for only three years, and therefore the smaller amount of interest is pay able. But it is not from motives of self interest that Australians are invest ing in the War Loan. That it pays to do so is merely incidental. What is desired is yiat this year Germany shall be brought to an admission of defeat, and that thereafter the world shall be at peace. And the subscrib ers know that every 17/4 invested in the l...

Cards From France. "THE CONFORTING WEED." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917
Cards From Franco. "THE CONTORTING WEED." TOAACCO seems a very small thing to send a man on the battlefield. To a non smoker it must seem also ludicrous that a man who every minute risks his life should appreciate a mere cisjarette or a pipe full of tobacco. How much such things are appreciated by the fighters, however, is shown by the letters which daily are received by the Southern Cross Tobacco Fund. This fund, which was organised by the Overseas Club, sends to the men in the fighting line 50 Aus tralian cigarettes, 2 ozs. of Australian tobacco and some matches for 1 /. Each parcel which is so sent out contains a postcard bearing the n>me and address of the giver of the 1 /, and on these post cards come back all manner of appre ciative messages. Often the cards have been scribbled in the firing line where the packages have been distributed through the agency of the Australian Comforts' Funds Commissioners. They come bearing the signs of the trenches. Splashes of Flanders mud, ...

WHEN THE COLD WEATHER COMES. Don't Wrap" Up Too Much. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 9 March 1917
WHEN THE COuD WEATHER COMES. Don't Wrap" Up Too Much. As soon as the air has a real touch' of frost in it we begin to shiver and fetch out our thick winter "undies," our furs and our overcoats. We pile more blankets on to the beds, close the windows another rew Inches, light the fires, and then wonder why we Htill feel cold. We feel cold in the winter chiefly because we do not get enough fresh air and exercise. A brisk walk in the open will Im-' prove the circulation, the digestion and the appetite, and will keep the body warmer than the biggest fire ever lighted. The clothes should not be so thick that the air cannot get at the skin, which should be kept well bathed. In order to keep the feet dry good thick soles should be worn. Of course we must wear a little warmer clothing, but there is no need for us to wrap ourselves up as though we were preparing for a Polar explor ation. Good nourishing food and ex ercise in the open air are far more helpful in warding off coughs, colds and ...

It had been reported at headquarters that the P.C. on duty at Smallville had been supplied witl)drink at. the Seven1 BluehounJs while. on duty, and they had been sent forth' to investi gate the matter. "Now, you wait outside," command ed the ' sergeant, "while I go in tin' make inquiries. I shan't be a tick." But he was several ticks. A't last he appeared, a dazed expression on his face.

"H'm!" grunted Chubbins, "that sounds'all right ; but if you take'my tip, sergeant,' you'll just put this pep permint lozenge'in yer mouth before you toll it to the chief."
