"Working on the tact that in an aver- I age crowd there are lour persons standing on each square yard, u scien tist lias calculated that the whole of the inhabitants of the earth could al most be accommodated on the ground occupied by the County of London.

Good Digestion Without Medicine. UNIVERSAL ADOPTION OF ANTACID THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917

Good Digestion Without Medicine. UNIVERSAL ADOPTION OF ANT ACID THEORY. IN the old days pain in the stomach after eating or inability to retain food, variously known as dyspepsia, indigestion or gastritis, called for the taking oJ powerful pain-killmg drugs or useless and expensive artificial digestants; the usual result being big medicine bills and an irriparably damaged stomach and intestinal tract. Modern enlightened research has changed all this. It has shown conclusively that acid and fermen tation, .which irritate and inflame the delicate stomach lining, is the direct cause of most of the trouble. Specialists therefore nowadays, instead of giving medicines and drugs, follow the more logical plan of neutralising the dangerous acid by taking immediately after-eating in a little water, half a teaspoonful of a form of magnesia prepared especially for stomach use, and known among chemists as bimrated magnesia. This instantly neutralises the acid, stops food fermen tation, and makes...

"I did," agreed the vicar. "It was a poetic figure of speech." "Don't you think 'a fresh squall' would have hit the mark better?"

SAM THE SPRUCER. He Dissertates Upon the Language of the Sergeant. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917

SAM THE SPRUCER. He Dissertates Upon the Language of the Sergeant. By P. W. Thomas. "His Royal Holiness the Bishop of Rumtifoo, said Sam, "is a whiskery old oyster by his photograph, with a face like a doormat in convulsions. But I could forgive him thai A man's face isn't usually his own fault. He starts out with a handicap, and makes it worse or better as he goes through li'e. I shouldn't say , the bishop had done much to improve his little lot, barring raising a fine crop of hair all over it that really ought to be trained up a. trellis. But that's neither here nor there, as the Briga dier said when the bomb went oft premature. "His face, he can't help, but he can help being a silly old date, a blither ing old slieephead, a-nd an episcopal chump. Can't he? Well, then, why don't he? I know! Because of the limelight, and there's no prizes for finding, the answer. ' "He's like all the bishops. Got to do something to keep his end ,up, else he'll be overlooked. Take that other joint! ...

Sporting, POREPUNKah sports ibis (Friday) after noon. There were a few fair sized winners over the success of Polycrates in the Newmaiket Handicap. The stable won a. few thousands in addition to a stake of over ;cco5ovs , wbiie a well-known N.S-W. racecourse proprietor was also a good winner in bets. The latter sportsman is very partial to the; New market, and has in different years-won at least three big stakes over, the V.R C. sprint race. It is considered likely that when the totalizator is in regular rise in New South Wales, the leading clubs will find is necessary to arrange for a forfeit for all events, at each afternoon's -racing, a couple of days before the meeting. This will be welcomed by punters; and give them a good idea of likely* runners well in advance of the meeting.

WEATHER MADE TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 16 March 1917

WEATHER MADE TO ORDER. In the opinion of that eminent scientist, Sir Oliver Lodge, it is by no means beyond the powers of man to make weather to order, and he advances the suggestion that explor ation of the upper regions would re sult in discoveries which would en i able us to control the weather. The I latter, he contends, is merely a .mat ! ter of electrical conditions, and the ingredients necessary for fine wea I ther are an upper atmosphere J charged" with positive electricity and a negative charge upon the earth's | surface. Much, he says, could be done by placing a copper rod around ? the earth parallel to the Equator and discharging millions of amperes (units) from this rod. Sir Oliver points out-that we-have spent mil lions on building railways, and why not invest capital in controlling the l weather by this means? Meantime, i while we are thinking about the cop ! per rod, much might be done by elec tricians. Sir Oliver Lodge suggests that they should ascend a high moun tai...
