Chronic indigestion and sicfcnesB after food and severe pains were all quickly cured by a very simple remedy in the case of Mr R. Savigan, 11, Gloucester Street, Barnardtown, Mon. In a letter referring to Iter husband's illness, Mrs Savigan writes :-" He did not know what it was to eat a meal without it couiing back," which appears to have been his condition for a considerable time, until his wife, while reading a ladies' paper, saw ordinary bisurated magnesia recom mended for indigestion, and obtained a small quantity so that her husband might try it. A few doses gave Mr Savigan great relief, aod before he had finished the first supply the trouble was practically cured. To use Mrs Savigan's own words : "He can eat his iood and is looking splendid, and can do his work; in fact, all the people about here look at him, for they all said he was a dying man." Th...

DON'T WORRY. The Plague went forth in tlie land, and one met him asking if he could Btay .his cruel hand.

PARIS—A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914
PARIS-A SYNONYM OF YOUTH. Paris when your skies are graying, how many of us know you? Do we know your Rue du Pont Neuf, -with its silent melodrama under the dawning heavens-or do we know only the farce of your Montmartre? Do we see the laughter in dancing eyes in the Rue Mouffetard-or. in tTie revel of your Saturday night, do we see only the belladonna'd leer of the drabs in the Place Pigalle? Do we know the romance of your peoples-or the ro mance of your restaurateurs? Which? I wonder. Paris has changed. It isn't the Paris of other days, you say; and Paquer ette, little Easter daisy, little flower of France-little Paquerette is dead. And you are old now and married, and there are the children to look out for-they're at the school age - and life's quondam melody is full of rests and skies are not always as blue as once they were. And Paris, four thousand miles beyond the seas Paris isn't what it used to be! But Paris is. For Paris is not a city-it is Youth. And Youth never dies. To ...

WINTER IN ARCADY. Is it monthB or years, dear Kitty, Since we left the murky city, (The rain is wanly dripping through the plaster In the hall), And our wand'ring fooUteps rested In the shade of this sequestered Little cottage with the jasmine cling ing coyly to the wall? When we found this haven, dearie, We were pleasure-cloyed and weary, (The wind is softly sobbing through the panels and the lath). I considered it rheumatic; But succumbed to your ecstatic Approbation of the streamlet at the 'bottom of the path. There like Rosalind in Arden You disported in the garden Till the sunset crowned the willows with its golden aftermath; And we watched the aspens quiver. Yes, I felt the timbers shiver; ('Tis the summer-house a-cruising up and down the garden path.) How we dallied with the hours 'Neath a canopy of flowers (Another prize chrysanthemum's gone crashing Iby the beam). But these sylvan joys are fading And to-morrow we'll be wading To the city through the pathway at the bottom of...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914
CHAPTER II. Mrs. Dale, widow of the late George Dale, lived with her only child in a tiny villa In South Kensington. Even the smallest villars are expensive in that part of the world. She was a slight, pale woman with light blue eyes and a faintly aquiline nose. In appearance she was the essential of grace, tout no one could call Margaret Dale beautiful. A little boy with hearty lungs was crying lustily in his own special nur sery. His name was Ralph, and his mother, at least, thought him the most beautiful creature in the world. Mrs. Dale had 'been a widow now for over two years, and it certainly did come into her head and also into her heart time and again that another husband would not be entirely amiss. She was very poor, very poor In deed, and did not like poverty. She \yas considered by her neighbors to be an exceedingly attractive woman. She was still young, and when, some time ago, she had met Peter Bellairs at an evening entertainment, she had found the handsome, darfceyed ...

BUSINESS COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914
BUSINESS COURTSHIP. An amusing case was once dcclded in a Frankfort police court. It ap pears that P. cook, no longer quite young, was courted by a tailor some what younger than she. On Sun days, and occasionally during the week, the gallant lover was in the habit of taking his lady for extended promenades #and visits to restaurants, wherfe the latter always paid the ex penses. She also provided him re gularly with his supper. Presently, however, the awful truth was brought home to the cook that she was not the only friend on whom the man of the scissors and the need le lavished his affections. Nothing loth, she went to the nearest police court, suing the faithless one for all the expenses of the clandestine meals provided by her, and all the money spent when "walking out" with him. The tailor, however, was once again too much for her. Instead of appearing before the tribunal - as a repentant sinner, ho came nto court with a long bill in his hand, on which was an account of the time...
