THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. f Under a costly canopy iThe village blacksmith Bits, Before him is a touring car, Broken to little ibits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their -wits. The village blacksmith smiles with glee As he lights his 'fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, 'Stand humbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his (bills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur -weep, as they de clare They ne'er paid that rtnfore. He goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his cash; A high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A building big and line. And it bears "Garage" above the door On a large electric sign.

NO ALARM FEARED London, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

NO ALARM FEARED •'' London, Monday. Mr. Asquith denies that it was ever intended to issue warrants against the Ulster leaders. He further declares that a general inquisition regarding the inten tions of the officers was never contemplated, inasmuch as the Government hopes that the con tingency of the employment of troops against Ulster will never arise. The authorities have removed large quantities of arms and ammunition from Omagh to Irinis killen. Earl Paget has moved 1200 troops to various points ,as a ; precaution against possible raids I on stores. j Mr. Asquith states that the movement of troops is now com pleted. He had an interview with the King yesterday. Sir John French was present at the inter view, which lasted an hour. The War Office has informed officers who are domiciled in Ulster, or whose parents reside in Ulster, j that they may temporarily resign their commissions until the trouble is over.

ACTIVITY ABATES PRECAUTIONS STILL TAKEN London, Wednesday. Advices from Ireland state that the feverish aetivJl r i Jw-? J.vo.? abated but that-tfie demand for art -• early election has received a fresh impetus, and elaborate precautions are still being taken by the military authorities. Sir Edward Carson, M.P., who is at Belfast, repudiates the charge of having attempted to influence the army as a foul falsehood. The Paris "Figaro" conceives that it is possible that the King may refuse to sign the Home Rule Bill as the socialists might secure a majority in the Irish Parliament and declare a republic.

Payment of Shire Rates. (TO THE EDITOR OP THE RAINBOW ARGDS) Sir,—My attention has been drawn to the following matter contained in the "Weekly Times" of the 14tli inst. under the heading "Legal Answers" :— I "Dimboola asks: — Can the Shire 1 Council force me to i>ay rates before June 10?—No." For the information of those interes ted, I would like to point out that "Our Legal Adviser" is mistaken.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

A TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners in"'Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, .found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action of the air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within tlieir remem brance, and at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life. When she was taken into the room where the dead man lay, a strange thing occurred. The old lady fell on lie corpse, and kisseu it, and address ed it by every term of endearment spoken in a bygone generation. He was her only love, and she had waited for him her long life. She knew he had not forsaken her. The old lady and young man had been betrothed sixty years before. Her lover had disappeared myseriously, and she had kept her faith during ...

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will become a thing of the past, and universal peace will ibe establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, and thousands of pounds have ibeen given to the cause; 'but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far back in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been. fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine class....

Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, and the captain was continually being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson ■who was aboard. Getting tired of it, at last lie led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. (The parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you tliink those men would swear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said tlie parson, and went away satisfied; but soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at it."

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, and no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is often remedied by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful iper bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Clamber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment is •wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the intestin...
