A BOON TO ATHLETES. _ FOUND COMSTOOICS NERVE AN.D BONE LINIMENT MOST (EFFECTIVE FOR STRAINED MUSOLES AND BRUISES. The powerful, penetrating qualities of Comstock's Nerve and Bone Lini ment make it invaluable for a strained muscle or bruise. Applied according to directions, it vory soon reduces a swelling from whatever cause. "Being unfortunate at various, times," writes Mr E. A. Lang, of "Oxford," Wollongong-road, Arncliffe, "to. meet wijili several .bruises and over-strain of muscle, sufficient to render me incapable of fulfilling my ordinary duties with, satisfaction, I used only one bottle of Comstock's Nerve and Bone Liniment on each occasion, and was able to continue work very quickly afterwards. On one important occasion I was kicked by a horse in the thigh, and though the bruise was very painful, causing a slight lameless, only half a bottle of Liniment was necessary to give relief, and in a few days I was "well again. As a boon to athletes and skaters, for bruised limbs, str...

AMONGST CANNIBALS. MISSIONARIES' FATE. Within the past few weeks a report came through from the New Hebrides about a massacre of Presbyterian nativo missionaries, who were after wards cooked and eaten. Pastor Parker and his wife, of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, are thei' only Europeans located at Atchin, New Hebrides, and in a recent letter to the Australasian conference; under whose control all missionary efforts are conducted in the Pacific Islands, he wrote as follows : "Trouble is again brewing. We know not when our turn will come, but, by God's help, wo intend to re main with this people. If we can serve the Master's cause best in death we bow our heads for the stroke. But we are not expecting to die, but to live, and to see this people sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in their mind. "One has to be careful at this time to keep complete neutrality. One ill advised word would imperil our lives. How much we need that wisdom from above that never errs. Pray for us. J ...

SECRETS OF A COMPLEXION SPECIALIST. A SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION BY ""WHICH A SPECIALIST QUICKLY RESTORED HUN DREDS OF RUINED COM PLEXIONS.

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

OLD POETS. If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where the old oaks gather, Serene and good and strong, And they would not slgli and tremble And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rliyming their hours away, They won't be still like honeBt men And listen to what you say. The young poet screams forever About his sex and his soul. But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowl. There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young, For they worry about the wars to be fought And the...

TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

TURF. Lilyveil annexed the Sydney Cup in record time. He ran in the Don caster, but owing to the crowded field couldn't get a go on. Backers, how ever, or a number of them, didn't take this into consideration, and held off him for the 2 uiiler. The public generally, however, when they saw Connolly make one of his noted swoops, followed, and were richer for it. Multifoil ran a good honest colt. With a stronger lad up may have doiie better. All going well, however, ho is bound to be heard of later on. Blthatn proved too good for the South Australians opposed to him. Little Vanguard won the Onka paringa Steeple. Small, but a decidedly good jumper is Yangunrd. The favorite, Tinto, ran second. Kelvin, the winner of the Hurdles at Onkaparinga, paid a tote div. of £33 Is. Bon Bon, a New Zealand neddy, has been purchased by S. P. MacKay, owner of Radnor, for 1,100 sovs. A good price, but not too much for a good one.

Pluck in Defeat. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

Pluck in Defeat. A recent Socialist candidate said of his defeat: "At any rate we put up, we Social ists, a ibrave if hopeless fight. And now, in our defeat, we are as cheery as the traveller. He 'bought a ticket, and then, going out on the platform, said: " 'How soon does the train start?' " " 'Why, there she goes now,' said a station hand. 'You've just missed her.' "The traveller leapt on to the line and set out in pursuit of the train with all his might. But in two or three minutes he came trudging hack over the ties. "A laughing crowd had gathered, and the station Jiahd said: " 'Well, did you catch her!' " 'No,' said the traveller; 'but, by jingo, I made her puff.'" "Cassell's" for Ajpril-the largest magazine in the world-is just issued. There is the same wonderful value, the repeated wonder of fine subjects and favorite writers as in previous numbers. Warwick Deeping, Olive Wadsley, H. G. Wells, Radcliffe Mar tin, and a host of, other well-known authors contribute to this issue...

FORTUNES MADE FROM BOXING. Interesting information is given in "How to Become a Boxer" regarding earnings of men who have won laur els in the ring. Packy M'Farland, it is stated, was discovered to have box ing talent when working at the age of fifteen in the Chicago packing yards. Before he had reached the age of eighteen he had taken "part in no few er than eighteen professional con tests, all of which he won. He is not twenty-five years of age yet, but he has accumulated a fortune of about sixty thousand pounds.

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 17 April 1914

WEALTH FROM WRECKAGE. Does anybody want to get rich in a hurry? If so, here Is a recipe-ibuy wrecks. A beach 'boat which cost about £200 to 'build was, after it had been run down off Yarmouth, sold for £2, and even that was obtained with difficulty, as seafarers do not like a boat which has once met with misfortune. Still a Jlner bargain for somebody was a schooner which ran ashore at Southport. It was actually sold for £1! Another splendid "deal" was made by a speculator who bought-a-wreck on the South Coast. He obtained from it nearly eighty torg of copper .fittings and Blieathing. This alone re turned him his money several times over, and yet he still had many tone of iron, fittings, rope, etc., 'besides a large quantity of copper sheathing out of sight. The success of such transactions ob viously depends on the ability to find a market for everything. And this is precisely where the specialists shine. Two purchases of a well-known dealer in wreckage and "waste" generally consist...

START. There's art in a start., Every good thing has--waited for years, perhaps for ages, and. only for a. starter. The good things In our life have waited in the same way, perhaps,are . waiting still. ? The art of start is.this: Just begin. "Don't wait to feel like it, for you i won't. Don't wait till it is easier, for it never will be. If the thing ought to be done, start . It, and start it now. Begin to-day that long-deferred task; enter upon that Spiritual under- 1 taking; assume that responsibility from which you have shrunk; launch . out upon that far journey from which you have shrunk; launch out upon that far journey from which you have held back. That Is half of the art of life; start!

"Do you see that handsome row ot tall poplars on the Canadian shore, | standing apparently at equal distances [apart?" asked a melancholy-looking: man of a group of passengers on the Fort Erie ferry-boat at Buffalo. The group nodded assent. "Well, there's quite a story connect ed, with those trees," he continued. "Some years ago there lived in a hous« in Buffalo, overlooking- the river, a very wealthy banker, whose 6nly daughter was beloved by a young sur veyor.' The old man- was inclined to question the professional skill of young fod-and-level; and to put him to the test he directed him to set out on the Dominion shore a row of trees no two of which should be any farther apart ttan any other tjvo. "The trial proved the lover's ineffi tiency, and forthwith he was forbid den the house, and in despair he drowned himself in the river. Per haps some of you gentlemen with keen eyes can tell which two trees are far thest apart?" The group took a critical view of the si...

I ' ? ' ? Women of War in Mexico. THEY TAKE THEIR PLACES IN THE FIRING LINE. Mr N. C. Adossides, war -corres pondent in the Mexican field, writes ns follows in " The Delineator" for March : In the Mcxican army of to-day I found women playing a new role. The soldaderas* or the amazons of Mexico form so important a part of the army that without them the Mexican soldier would be helpless and would refuse to march; Yet these same women are not treated ns the heroines that thoy are, and as the comrades and sup porters of the men, but as mere chattels doomed to cruelty, oppression and dishonor. The peasant woman of Mexico con. stitute the perambulating commissary department of the army, and they are -the only commissary the army has. They follow their men on to the battle field and share -with them all the horrors of it. Very often they join in the fighting, as I saw them do in the battle of Escalon. Even the children and domestic animals can be found along the firing-line. The inhuman su...
