THOSE SUDDEN STABS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 23 March 1914
THOSE SUDDEN STABS. When the kidneys are aick, sharp, darting pains strike you in the back, loins or sides-pains that almost take your breath".way, and often .omake you cry out in agony. It is almost impossible to mistake those kidney pains, for they seem to centre about the small of the back where the kid neys are located. There is no plaster or liniment that will reach the inside cause-sick kidneys. What is needed is a kidney medicino-a'kidney stimu; laent, to start the kidneys.working as they should-a healing, soothing tonic, to relieve and cure congestion and in flammation in the kidneys. There is no other, remedy for sick kidneys quite equal toDoan'saBackache Kidney Pills. M: Il. Robinson, Railway, Station, Casterton, says :-"Some time ago I had a nasty fall, and hurt my back, and as a result I suffered terribly prith backackache.

Municipal Sale Yards TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 23 March 1914
Maulicipal Sale Yards To THE EDITOR SIR,-I desire to draw the at tention of stookowners as to what took place at the meeting of the Council on Thursday 12th. ,The first steps were 'taken" t borrow a sum of money to erect municipal sale yards on a site on the Bah gallah road near the Chinese gar dens. Now, of all the proposals brought forward by the Council since the inception of the Shire, this stands out as one of the most preposterous. For the benefit of the many ratepayers who are un acquainted with the locality of this site, let me explain that it is situated a good two miles from the town on a piece of sandy, ;crub-infested land recently ac uired at a cheap rate from the Closer Settlement Board. It is on a road leading to nowhere, and directly serves only a few isolated arms set in a wilderness of scrub. t is possible to get sheep across o it from the Mount Gambier nd Penola roads in summer, ,ut in winter both the side lanes and these main roads are flooded o such an extent tha...
