WUOEN'S INTER S..T (By "Ambrosine.") One of the latec hat models takes the fobrm of a: perfectly flat plateau.

The model .can, hoiever, hardly be clmraccerised as" flint as the Dolly vatr den or coolle plateau, wimoh achieved such popularity 'n their time.

Blotches On Face CAUSED BY BILIOUS CONDITION Nothing is more worrying to peo ple, -especiaily ladies than to have their complexions sploiled by pim ples and blotches. These are invari ably due to poor condition of the blood, caused by a disordered liver not performing its functions, and a remedy that will set the liver right is consequently the only thing to free one from these disfiguring and painful eruptions.

RESIDENTIAL ALLOTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 April 1914
RESIDENTIAL ALLOTMENTS ----.- Years ago, when the laying-out of the township of Orhbst was under dis cussion, some of the residents, longer sighted than the rest, argued in favor of a larger area than was eventually laid out. These man were, however, in the minority, and the township boundaries were fixed where we now have them. It is becoming more evident every day thal the voice of the minority was the voice'of wisdom, and the necessity for extending our township limits is becom ing more 'and more apparent. Even now there is a cry for residential allot ments at a reasonable price and within reasonable distance of the business part of the town; and with the advent of the railway the demand will become more insistent. There seems to be only one solution of the problem, viz, to extend the township in the most suitable direc tion by subdividing adjoining estates. We are informed that a step is to be taken in this direction shortly by the subdivision or the estate known as Abram Perry'...
