AN UNWELCOME SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
AN UNWELCOME SUGGESTION, At an inquest at Edmonton on a boy aged three years, who was killed by lightning during a thunderstorm, a juryman suggested that the verdict should be "Killed by lightning by God's will." The coroner: Everything is God's will, I strongly disapprove of the idea that we sometimes hear of that a person is killed by the visitation of fod because he has heen struck by lightning. It is no more by the visi tation of God in that case than in any other. The jury found that the boy was killed by being struck by lightning.
WHY YOU MUST REST. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
WHY YOU MUST REST. Dr, John W. Flinn, an English medi co, says that in both the plant and animal kingdoms rest is essential to growth. In infancy, development is in its hilehest state of activity, and the healthy infant passes the greatest por tion of its life in a state of rest and sleep. Repair is but the repetition of growth, and for it rest is just as neces sary as in injury to the limbs when rest is obtained by splints and band. ages, etc, In the case of the heart and lungs, rest can be got only by rest ing the whole body in a recumbent position. Rest in bed is tile most powerful curative agent in the treat ment of active tuberculosis. One or two months in bed, says Dr. Flinn, are necessary in the beginning of treat ment in all cases. If tlhe disease is very active, the patient should be fed by a nurse and treated as in typhoid fever, Bed treatment should he con tinued until the temperature and pulse have both been normal for some Little time, and the weight is nearly normal, T...
COOL GARMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
COOL GARMENTS. Cool garments are those which favor the dissipation of the heat of the body, for the warmth felt by the wearer of the garment proceeds not so much from the garment itself as from the wearer, Wool is warm, because it is a worse condluctor of Iheat from the body than other materials, whilst fur is the worst conductor of all, Silk is cooler than either cotton or linen, for it favors conduction of heat from the body better than any other material, Bleached are cooler than unbleached fabrics, In summer and winter all clothes should fit sufficiently loosely to give the limbs and respiratory organs their full freedom. Color should also play an important part rn the choice of our clothing for the seasons, White is the ideal color for the suummer, be. cause it is the one that absorbs the least heat, whilst, on the other hand, black or dark colored garments attract the sun, and absorb a large amnount of heat, Hence their usefulness for Win tor wear.
READING AT MEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
RE4DING AT MEALS, There is a very great mistake made by a larger number of persons-a mis take which leads to indigestion and all its attendant horrors, We refer to the practice of reading at meals, Diges tion is always best subserved when the mind is free froim care and when the physical processes of our frames are left to discharge their work free from nervous tremors. It is on the ground of the elevation of spirits produced by cheerful association with others that " pleasant company " at meals has al ways. formed a condition of social en joyment. Tile stimulus to nervous ac. ivity which is thus given acts bene ficially on the digestive powers, just as the man who is harassed, worried, and over excited will not be likely to di gest and eat a satisfactory mceal. The habit of reading at meals is to be con demned where it has grown to one of actual " study," and where the reader endeavors to gain knowledge and to save time at his meals. The solitary eater, if he reads, should read wha...

TOWN TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
TOWN TOPICS, " A, present," the " Age " says, ' Williamatown has the dingiest Municipal Chamrborn and oflices with in a radius of 20 miles of Melbourne. The heilding is old, tottering and un sightly and the ottices small and in convenient," The writer of the paragraph represents the " Ago " at Williamstown, Footaeray, Sunshine, Braybrook, Werrlhee, Esaondon, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne, He has a pretty big sweop of country to look after and his opinion can hardly be questioned, The idea that the average ratopayer is furiously in dignaut at the idea of getting into decent quarters is being cultivated assiduously ; but it is only a libel on the average ratepayer. The average ratopayor soldom Ihas business at the Council Chambers and if the accom modation is good enough for coun. cillors it is good enough for him. The only oserious trouble likely to be apprehended is from a crude, ill thought out schemo being thrown at the ratopayers unconcernedly. In such circumstances, they wi...
ALTONA BAY TRAGEDY. MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY OPENED. SECOND BODY NOT YET RECOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
ALTOIA B~Y TRACEDY. MAOGISTERIAL INQUIRY OPENEID, SECOND BODY NOT YET' RECOVERED. TrwI great part of Thursday was spent by Const kble Walsh cruising around between Altona Bay and the powder magazines in a motor boat searching for the body of Samuel Boyd, of New port, who, with another man, named Henry Tatlow (not Petlow as stated in all the Melbourne papers), lost his life in the vicinity on New Year's eve through the overturning of a 16 feet pleasure boat. Numbers of other per sons camped at Altona Bay joined in the search, but no sign of the drowned man was seen The tragedy, happen ing as it did in full view of holiday makers, cast a gloom over the resort, and the fate that overtook Boyd is regarded as especially pitiful in view of the fact that after clinging to the over turned boat for some time rescuers were practically within arms length of him when he was washed off and dis appeared, Under instructions from the coroner, Mr T. Lonsdale, J.P., journeyed to Altona Bay on New Yea...

OUR WATER FRONTAGES. DEVELOPMENTAL POLICY NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
OUR WATER FRONTAGES. DIEVILOPMENTAL POLIOY NItiDID, T'I' new Hiarbor Trust has shown its dependence on Hobson's Bay as the future home of the shipping of the Port of Melbourne by its selection of the river mouth and the bay outwards as the scenario of its operations. This selection was not made as a result of local agitation ; it was not made as a result of agitation from any quarter; but from a manifest conviction that the old regime had been one of narrow and prejudiced hostility to HI-obson's bay and to the national claims of ship ping and from a desire to reverse that policy without a moment's delay. With this frank and voluntary re cognition of the claims of Hobson's bay, it might be supposed that the Council would make the Harbor Trust acquainted with all the wants of the district. What, for instance, is being done to carry out the recommenda tions of the Silt Commission, as adopted and endorsed by the Cabinet ? When are the piers to he widened and lengthened, as recommended b...

NEW YEAR'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 3 January 1914
NEW YEAR'8 IAY. "Ah I Time glides ever qulakly by Destroying all that's dear. On earth there's little worth a nigh And nothing worth a tear." These are the words of an Australian poet and they indicate a feeling of pessimism akin to the aphorism of the aimless and dejected UWilure-"Nothing matters, anyhow," It is true of course that time destroys things dear to people of a particular period, but it also destroys, or at any rate softens, the keen and bitter feelings of remorse and grief which are co-exten sive with the feelings of love and happiness, A great English poet refers to Time as " to a philosoplher when the heart has bled." When in dividual happiness is shattered and old friendships are severed and old cus. toms broken, fresh joys, abundant happiness, new friendships, and awak ing love spring up, always giving hap piness a good credit balance against its tardier pursuer grief. Affairs of this world are not lasting and it is only the way of the world that grief should follow...

THE State Cabinet decided on Tuesday last to place the shipbuilding yards under the control of the newly created department of Industry and Labor. This department will have chargo of thP Maffra sugar works and other State enterprises which are termed socialistic ; it will also be an employ mont bureau and will have possaesion of the statistics of industry as well as managerial responsibility. The schemo is an excellent one ; but it shows the wide gulf that separates the theories of the political economist from the actual facts and problems of industry. Why is not a Professor of Economics retained as profossional adviser to the department ? If it were a mining de partment, a public works department, or a public health department, the presence of a professional adviser on geology, engineering, architecture or health, would be essential. Why is it that the Government has no use for a man who devotes his whole life to the study of the Economics of In. dustry as an adviser to the Depart ...
