Correspondence. A POSTAL MATTER. (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 16 March 1923

Correspondence. A POSTAL MATTER. (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). Sir,-My attention has been drawn to a published statement which Was made by a Longreach postal official during the hearing of a recent court case in the town. It was stated "that it would take a let- ter posted on a Monday 4 to 5 days to reach Charleville, but a letter posted any other day would take about 6 days" (from Longreach). Though no doubt the above had no bear- ing on the case, the statement is not strict- ly correct as a letter posted'at the Aerial Services' late fee letter box up to 5 a.m. on a Monday morning will be delivered before lunch the same day in Charleville, and any letter posted after Thursday at 11 a.m. .hows a big saving when posted at the Post Office, and endorsed "By Aerial Mail". While not wishing for a moment to re- flect on the official in question, who no doubt considered the "Aerial Mails" as out- side his evidence, I do wish to say what- a great pity it Is that more residents of the ...

France and Germany. . GERMAN FEAR REVOLUTION. RUMOURED FRANCE INTENDS" OCCUPY . MUNIGH. y LONDON, March 14. According to the Dusseldorf correspond- ent, of the "Daily Telegraph" a serious position has arisen in the Ruhr district. The' German authorities are rushing up trains into the occupied district in order to prevent the strike developing into a revolutionary movement against the French as the Germans fear the revolution would soon include German authorities as there is a large communist element in the Ruhr who >are opposed equally both to the French occupation and Germany Government. The Berlin correspondent of the "Morn- ing Post" states that it is persistently ru moured that the French intend to shortly óccur_fy" Munich. The German Government Eds notified Paris that if the Burgomaster of Bueau is executed a popular rising is likely for which they will hold France re- sponsible. 4 " LONDON, March 13.

INDIGESTION DIGESTION IS THE PROCESS OF ASSIMILATION OF FOOD, WHERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 16 March 1923

INDIGESTION DIGESTION IS THE PROCESS OF ASSIMILATION OF FOOD, WHERE« BY THE BODY IS NOURISHED. It is not the quantity of food we eat, but what we digest and assimilate that nourishes the body. When the Stomach and Organs of Digestion and Nutrition are diseased, and the food'eaton is only imperfectly digested, there is loss of nutrition, and the body loses strength as a natural consequence. Not only does the system suffer from lack of nourishment, but the derangement of tho organs must inevitably cause fur- ** ther complications. Indigestion is a most prevalent source of Constipation, which in its turn causes a disordered liver, and finally you become burdened with Chronic Dyspepsia. Indigestion invariably arises from improperly pre parod food, hastyf eating, over-indul« gencc, fatigue, and exhaustion during hot weather, breathing foul air,,exces- sive brain work, and moro frequently from cares and worry, which exhaust the nervous force; and weaken the organs of digestion. Dr. Morse'...
