ROSIE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915

ROSIE. By G. H. Stevenson. Sho had boon 20 wheu ho married her, and had looked like a girl in her teens; sho looked hardly older now, and their marriage was five years gone. In the black dress she wore she looked very slim, very fair; a crape toque and black gloves lay upon tho table, so that the light fell unhindered en her brown, curly head, and touched it with a charm of gold. Iler husband-somewhat oldor thau sho was-waited on her assiduously, pouring out .tea with clumsy masculine readiness, handing her bread and but ter. "It is quite good to have you home again, dear,;'he said. "It is so lovely to bo home again," sho replied-then sighed. "Only " "Only." "Only I feel i, ought not to be so glad -with-poor mamma"-her voice, broke and he knelt down on the rug be side her and took her hand between his own. "it has been a terrible time, poor : little woman." She laid her head a moment on his shoulder. "I thought," aaid said slowly, "if you were to go out of my life like that, Frank, ...

Mrs. Jones got all her furnishingB tor her tent at the Melbourne Furnish ing Gb;, Graham St.. Wonthagjrt THE SURE SIGN. A dull, persistent pain in the back i-an ache that spoils sleep, and is worse in the morning; a sharp, cutting pain when bending-is a sure sign of kidney disease.- It is not really the back aching, but the kidneys, which lie just beneath the small of the back. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills quickly relieve the kidneys, and help them to drive out of the- body the poisons which cause backache, dropsy, urinary disorders, rheumatism, gravel, stone. The case here given proves that cures are thorough. Mrs.'J. Sanderson, "Dulce Domum," Broome-crescent, Wonthaggi, says: "Owing to my kidneys being very much out of order, I was troubled for a long time with severe pains in my back, and violent headaches. My sufferings were awful, and can better be imagined than described. A friend, who had used Doan's Backache Kidney Pills with good results, persuaded me to give this remedy a ...

MILK PAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915

MILK PAINT. fcomo time ago (writes T. Greenor in j "Farni and Piroeido") I tried the } cement-milk paint on my greenhouse, both inside a.ucl out. I can now report | that it has stood tho test quite well, and hereafter, whon I have some out buildings or board fences in need of painting, 1. shall do it with the7 cheap paint, tho recipe of which I give here with: Stir into one gallon of milk about o lb. Portland cemeut', and add sufficient Venetian red powder, or any other col ored paint-powder,, to impart a good color. The milk will hold ttic paint in suspension, but the cement beiug very heavy, will sink to the-bottom, so that it becomes necessary to keep the.- mix ture well stirred with a paddle. This feature of tho need of stirring is the only drawback to the paint, and as its efficiency depends upon administering a good coatiug of cement, it is not sate i to ieave its application to uiitrust- , worthy help. Six hours after painting ' this paint, will be as immovable and . unaffect...

HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915

HOPE. To give way to despair is futile. Whilst we breathe we may hope. Of course, it is often, very hard to carry a high head or a smiling face when trouble assails us, but the effort must be made, or life is not worth living. Many people get despon <3entr,\vhen they suffer from such common ills as rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lum bago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jaun dice, sick' ."headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles.

UNPROFITABLE ACRES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 21 May 1915

UNPROFITABLE ACRES. We hear many uncomplimentary tilings said about the unprofitable dairy cow-the boarder cow that is suppor ted from the profits of the remainder of the herd. Ou many farms the unpro fitable dairy cow is not by any means the only boarder. Low-yielding acres aro often fatal to successful farming. Our farm survey records show that areas of poorly drained, compact, sour soils, or soils low in humus greatly re duce net profits and are a frequent cause of miuus labour-income. Some times these records show that as much as thirty per cent, of the entiro farm acreage does not producc enough to pay its way. The successful business man tries to weed out all unprofitable enterprises' ?and to expand those that pay a profit Unprofitable acres cannot always be dis posed of as readily as boarder cows, but usually they can be improved until they become profit-bearing. If the income from such land cannot be increased it is quite possible that the labour spent upon it can be reduced...
