Dear Tea. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911

Dear Te». At its first introduction into Eng- land, about thc middle of thc seven- teenth century, tea fetched anything between six and ten pounds a pound, and, though a fall in price quickly took place, the East India Company ! still had to pay over- four pounds for ! the two pounds of tea which they pre- sented to the King. However, even then it is doubtful if the tea merchants grew very rich, as the importation of about four thousand pounds in 1678 was enough to glut the market for some years

Labour on the farm [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911

Labouron thefarm No matter ¡a what direction one may turn complaint is general as to the scarcity of competent farm labour. Despite the fact that good positions are on offer af wages that a few years ago would have drawn dozens of applicants for the one po- sition the services of suitable men are at a premium. And just at a time when one would think there could not possibly be any scarcity it appears to be at its worst. The ravages of the Irish blight and the consequent loosening of the labour market by the fact that the lesser number of men are required for di j' ging the crop should have been re- sponsible for a situation whereby there would be no dearth of labour but apparently such is not the case and many farmers are at the present time considering the position in which they have found themselves. The erratic weather at harvest time it was thought might have been re- sponsible for holding off numbers of the farm hands but since the harvest has been finished the posi- tion in pl...

ACUTE GASTRITIS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911

ACUTE GASTRITIS. Tho signs of acute gastritis are restlessness, feverishness, thirst, pain, offensive breath, loss of appe- tite, and burning sonsatioti at pit of stomach. When theso symptoms aro present tboro need bo no doubt in regard lo tho lesion, though tho primary cause may be obscure or un- known. For a time tho stomach will digest nothing, hence no food may be swallowed. Tho consUuit call is for waler; and thc colder it bo so much the hotter it is relieved. Ice will do, yet a constant supply must be at. hand, ns soon ns tho stomach is full of fluid, emesis takes place, often with retching. Then more water ! To treat such a case suc- cessfully requires thought. Is a drug needed 1 Possibly a few drops of camphor water, a sip of warm water, or a teaspoonful of ginger ale. Warm water will slake tho cravings of thirst better than cold. A dilute solution of sulphate of magnesia operates favourably, even if not well received at first. As thc nausea subsides rest will ho obtained-po...

SHARK AND OCTOPUS AS DELICACIES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 20 May 1911

SHARK AND OCTOPUS AS DELICACIES. Japan is to-day the leading fishing nation. Not, it is truo, in the actual value of its fish products, for in that two or three other nations excel it : hut in tho number of persons who make their living by fishing, in the proportion of fishers to tho rest of tho people, in tho relative impor- tance of fisheries in tho domestic economy, in tho ingenuity and skill of tho people in devising fishing ap partus and in preparing fish, and in thc zeal shown by the Government in promoting thc interests of the fish- ing population, Japan is pre-emi- nent. Tho Island Empire, as tho New York "Tribune" points outstretches diagonally from north-east to south- west between two and throe thou- sand milos, giving a great range of climate, and consequently of waters, from almost tropical tu almost arctic.
