His mind was much exercised • during dinner by Ida Hamilton's ex cessive pallor.

Devercl was with her all the time, and he look ed serenely happy, which forbade the idea of a quarrel. There had been no accident .to try her nerves, and we contents of the post-bap could have had nothing to do with it, for sue had looked aa white as a sheet in the car riage, when the letters were securely sealed up in the maiU After dinnera as soon as tho genuc man cam# into the drawing-room, which ■they did after a very short interval at Belton, his eyes roamed round the room in search of Ida.

THE CURE CORNER. THE SICK ROOM IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 July 1914
THE CURE CORNER. THE S10K ROOM IN WINTER. There are several small points, im portant ia themselves, which must be attended to in the sick loom in win ter, such as the admitting of fresh air without causing draught; the keep ing up the fire during the night with out disturbing the patient, being very careful that the change of personal clothing and sheets are always well aired, that there are two or three hot water bottles at hand, and that a kettio of water is always on the boil in tlio kitchen to fill them in case of the patient having a chill. It is quite as important to have the room well ; vientilattod in winter as in summer, but sometimes it is more difficult to ! accomplish, especially in rainy find windy weather. It can be dono, how ever by opening tlio bottom sash a few inches, and tacking over it an old blanket, then tlio fresh air will filter through without causing a draught. Tho thermometer must bo examined from time to time, to see that the room is of tho right tmperatu...

PERUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("The Queen") [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 July 1914
PERUVIAN ANTIQUITIES. ("The Queen."» Man. comes and goes. it is ono of the liumlities of humanity that only a few races and individuals leave any lasting memories behind them. The works of their hands, too, die wiiu them. But, this is not always so. In Peru, we come upon traces of vast civilisation of high order, of which we have no actual knowledge, savo for some sculptured walls we aro un ablo to decipher, and marvellous ruins of stone buildings wonderfully con structed. We have to content our selves with mere tradiions few and far between. History points to a Mongolian typo, swept away by the Iucas, and supplanted by them before . tho birth of Christ. But these early remains of an extinct people are of unrivalled interest. A.Ve have, how ever, some pre-Inca relics testifying to culture and strong artistic tendencies i and some of tho texiles belonging to 1 the pre-Inca period, as well as to tho work "of the great Inca area, have been handed down in rare perfection, though they da...
What Dyspeptics Should Know. Physician's Timely Advice. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 July 1914
What Dyspeptics Should Know. Physician's Timely Advice. Tlie fact that few dyspeptics really understand the cause of their trouble is probably the reason why drugs are still used to such an alarming extent. The practice is wrong, however, and is strongly condemned by many phy sicians. The presence of excess of acid in the stomach is the cause of practi cally all forms of digestive trouble, an&lt;l this can be neutralised and ren dered harmless by the occasional use of ordinary bisurated magnesia— a product which can be obtained of any chemist. Physicians uso bisurated "magnesia themselves as well as rec ommend it to their patients, became thay recognise that it not only over come! dangerous stomach acid and thus ensures easy digestion, but by its use no harmful drug is introduced into the system, and therefore there can be no unpleasant after-effects. Half a teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals is usually quite sufficient to keep thb food oontents of the stomach" ...
HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 30 July 1914
HEBE AND THESE. l>r. Bashford, Director of the Im perial Cancer Research Fund Labora tory. in a lecture at the recent Royal j.untnry institute, laid down rules for the avoidance of cancer, which may be epitomised as follow'. Cut down your tobacco allowance, take the pledge, j and eat your dinner with the calm of * cow. J A warning to the over-strenuous was uttered at a National Health Society meeting recently by Professor Stir iiih. Severe bodily exercise, he said was incompatible with full digestive ac tivity. Mental fatigue greatly im paired bjdily activity, and vice versa. Glands, like muscles, suffered from Fatigue, ::nd the result of a "quick lunch" was to exhaust the glands which supply tiie digestive fluids. The se cret of health, said the lecturer, was to be found in rhythm. Between the heart beats was a regular pause, whicu permitted a restitution of matter ana energy. On a larger scale, sleep was such another quiescent period. Re pose was the necessary complement ni fat...
