THE ONLY REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
THE ONLY REM1~JDY. The only remedy for high prices is the encouragement of production. __J may be said that the drought could not be provided against. Still, if.more persons had been engaged in product ive pursuits, their aggregate output would have been greater than that of the smaller number. The proportion of unproductive consumers would also be smaller, and, to that extent, demand would be relieved. In Australia, we deliberately penalise producers in oder to stimulate the industriesof the cities. So long as this policy is persisted in, ,may we. expect the recurrence of dis tressing periods of scarcity, such as that through which we are now passing.

DOCTORS TO THE FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
DOCTORS TO TIlE FRONT. The Commonwealth has been ap pealed to furnish 100 medical men for active service. Sydney has responded liberally, 32 of her recently diplomaed students having already , volunteered. To these young men the opportunity is very tempting. Instead' of the long period of " doldrums " which. so-often intelrvones before the student who has " passed " can obtain a practice that will support him, they will go into aoive work at once,, and will probably gain more experience in six months than they would gain in the piping times of peace in as many years. More over this demand for service abroad will materially relieve the overorowded ranks of the profession> here. This, however, is a considerationi which Wiill commend it to the B.M.A. rather than to the volunteers themselves; Seriously, when the War is odnr;'a trioublesome problem .threatens-to present itself. As well as being perplexed as to *what shall be done with our boys and girls, we shall'have to: consider .wh...

,ltaorial to tke late J. L. Trefle. APPEAL FOR FUNDS. We have to advise that at a repre sentative meeting of citizens, held at the Hotel Australia on March 9th it was unanimously resolved :-"That in view of the services rendered to the State by the late Mr. Trefle, we propose that his memory be perpetu ated by means of an enduring mem orial of helpful service to his widow and family." Also, "That a committee be ap pointed to carry out the wishes of the subscribers." At the committee's first meeting it was resolved:--"That the primary object of an appeal for funds be the erection of a home for Mrs.Trefle and family and education of the child ren." We desire to appeal to your mos. generous sympathies for supp:ort in carrying out the above objects. The blameless and high-minded life of the late statesman, and his conduct in public and private affairs are of such that they should commend this appeal to all who appreciate the best qualities of our race. It is also hop ed that the practic...

SkiL !iLike Raw . Meat. SCALP SORES WUILsT TEETHING. AZHI-BiK REiMOVE8 EvERY TnAke OF DISEASE. Ms. E. DAVIES, 37 Seventh Avenue, Maylands, Perth, W.A., says: ,':" Through teething trouble a nasty outbreak of running sores started on mny .boy Alfred's scalp. The disease spread rapidly and the child's skin got so fearfully inflamed that it looked just like a piece of raw meat. I couldn't bathe the bad places for the child would start edreaming as he saw me getting the water 'ready. I-,began to be alarmed, for all sorts of remedies failed to check the awful disease, ." Then one day my husband fold me to get.a pot of Zam-Buk. The first few dressings of this balm greatly re duced the inflammation, cleansed the sores, and caused them to look heal thier. "Eventually Zam-Buk healed every one of the sores perfectly, and removed every trace of the disfiguring outbreak." Even in obstinate cases of tezema, leg sores, ulcers, ringworm, and scalp sores, Zam-Buk's herbal juices pene-. trate to the...

A DUTY OF A DEMOCRACY [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
A DUTY OF A DEMOCRACY (By " Gossip.") (From the Sydney "Stock and Sta tion Journal.") REPUBLICS and deniocracies are pro verbially ungrateful, and gratitude has been cynically defined as " a feel ing of thankfulness for favours to come." But some of us are better than the cynics think, and to-day comes the opportunity to prove it. Many years ago-say twenty for a round figure-there came into journo alism in New South Wales, a young man named J. T,. Trefle. His paper was the " remora.Independent." He was straight anrd' clean, and domina ting, and soon be made his way into the front rank of country journalism. We have not too many straight men in our community-in any commun 'ity. Mr. Trefle and I were of different religions, and we took opposite sides in politics, but as citizens 'we were ever on the one side l He was a straight-goer, and' his word was his bond. When he stood for the Castlereagh in the State election, I barracked for. him as a good man." forgetting that he was on the o...

Commercial. "JOHN BRIDGE" AT EASTER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
- Coimmlllercial. ----4----- "JOHN'BRIDGE " AT EASTER. JouN B13r;D & Co. send us a gracefully' phrased invitation card similar to that of which many of our readers have no doubt been the recipients. It Inviteswool-growers and their families to avail themselves of the convenience of the firm's headquarters dur ing their visit to'Sydney for Easter. This invitation is an annual one and is prompted by a thoroughly friendly desire on the part of the firm to make some acknowledgement, however slight, of the unstinted hospitality constantly shown the principals and other representatives when' in the country. We imagine that none but the most envious competitor of the firm will cavil at this manifest effort to show appreciation of kind. nesses received, while the modern and enter prising mind will give full credit to the firm for its attempt to be of service to those who by their, .patronage, have augmented the firm's business. Reunions such as these Easter ones of " Johf Bridge" en...

RELIABLE MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
RELIABLE MACHINERY. WHAT a source of s'atisfaotion it is to know that we can thoroughly rely upon any machine .to do the..work re quired of it, and which especially will not disappoint us when we need its servioes most. Any maohine which is liable to frequehtly get out of order and to fail at critical moments, wasting our valuable time and causing loss in other directions, is worse than useless and should be promptly put on the scrap heap. Take.for instance the operations on a large dairy farm where the milk re quires to be separated twice a day, what could possibly be more disheart ening to the owner of the dairy than for the separator to continually go wrong ? This is why the "Alfa Laval " cream separator has" attained such an affectionate hold of the minds of all dairymen. The " Alfa-Laval " is the one machine to be relied upon, and if taken reasonable care of, costs little for repairs, and will be the pride of its owner for many years.

RABBIT DESTRUCTION BY THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
RABBIT' DESTRUCTION BY THE •UNEMPLOYED. A CORRESPONDENT of the Wagga Pastures Protection Board on Friday complained of the failure to suppress rabbits on the part of. large land. holders adjoining his property, and letters were read which he had sent to Mr. Boston, M.L A., on the sub ject, and which were forwarded by that gentleman to the Department of Agriculture, which int turn sent them onto the Board for report. Apart from the specific complaint of the writer, his letters were interesting because of a suggestion to the Govern ment that special legislation should be passed to provide that the authori ties should have power to put on men from the ranks of the unemployed t6 destroy rabbits on neglected holdings, and that the cost should be met by the-. landholders concerned. The Wagga Board did not express any: view as to the justice or otherwise of this scheme, it being a" matter en tirely for the politicians, to deal with.

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT BUNGENDORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 23 March 1915
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT BUNGENDORE. THS Coroner (Mr. J. Gale) is in re- ceipt of an official report from Ser- geant Stinson of Bungendore, to the effect that a four-roomed brick cot- tage and three attached wooden rooms were totally destroyed by fire on the night of the 18th instant. The con- tents of the brick building were partially saved, but almost the whole of the contents of the wooden struc- ture were destroyed. The building, which was situated on the railway line, was the property of the railway commissioners and was occupied as a gate-house by Miss Jean Pollack and her mother, who owned the contents. The fire is supposed to have started in the the wooden structure between 11 p.m. and midnight, and so fierce was the conflagration that the occu- pants (five females) had to escape in their night attire. Very careful in- quiries have been made by the police, but no evidence or suspicion of in- cendiarism can be obtained. There was no insurance on the contents of the building destro...
