CORRESPONDENCE. MR PETERS AND HIS VOTES. (To the Editor Tocumwal "Guardian.") [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 6 March 1908

CORRESPONDENCE. MR PKTI-RS AX» HIS VOTI-S. (To the Editor Tocumwal " Guardian.") Sir, -My attention has been drawn to a letter appearing in the Deniliquin "Independent," headed as above. In tbe first place I must thank Rev D. D. Hunter-I presume the initials at the foot stand for his name-for his appreciation of me as a local representative, or, in other words, for my attention to local-.' wants. I am also glad that although the unexpected assembling of Par- . liameiit for a short session on viarch. ioth-although it cuts my tour in half and will prevent me from visi-" ting Deniliquin on March gth-will afford Mr Hunter the opportunity of asking me to account for my vote. In his advocacy of prohibition Mr Hunter stands alone, and with the intemperance of many temperance men he refuses to see any solution of the liquor problem bu1 his own, - I claim to be equally earnest of effec ting reforms in that .lireetion and shall be glad of the opportunity of making my views clear to him.

BACTERICIDE FOR MILK. - \The effect of a carbon dioxide, at high pressure, as a bactericide Is well known.

Common opinion, ,it turns out, is procisoly wrong, remarks n scionti/ie man. More hard thinking is dono at the back part of tho head than any where olso. Much of tho rest is done in a region just above the cars. "When tho thinking involves action tho sides and top of tho head play their special part. In fact, about the only portion of the outer layers of tho brain sub stance that has nover been found to have tho least connection with any sort of thinking is that lying above tho eyes. Thore is anothor curious fact about the thinking apparatus. Nine men out of ten at least do all their thinking on tho left side of the brain, and might, so far as their purely mental opera tions aro concerned, get on just as well if the entire right half were removed. There have been men who have lost a cunful of brains out of tho right side of the...
