FEARFUL DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
FEARFUL DRINKS. Now that prohibition is "in the' air," there is much talk of drinks— as substitutes for beer or otherwise. Kvass is certainly a more palatable concoction than slietnia, another tee total drink consumed by the Russians in winter-time, of which the ingredi ents are honey, pepper, hot water, and boiling milk. And even shetnia is preferable to the favorite tipple of the Laplanders, which is made of hot water and meal, strongly flavored with tallow, and also with reindeer blood if any be available. Still, our ancestors used to swallow drinks quite as trying for the liver, and de cidedly worse for the head, such as gin and treacle, ale and cream, and— most fearsome of all—brandy mixed with aniseed-water, rose-water,' and poppy-water, and flavored with rais ins, dates, cinnamon, liquorice, angel ica and balm.

SPORT FOR THE RECRUIT [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
I SPORT FOR THE RECRUIT I By Ashley Sterne. . Any man possessing health and a day, and wishing to put these tools to a "worthy use, has only to apply to the nearest recruiting depot, "where he will receive precise details how he may assist in making the pomp of a brace of Emperors ridiculous. Men who have experienced this fas cinating sport are loud in its praises, claiming for it that it is far superior to tickling for tigers in Tarai, zog ging for zebras in Zambesia, or pater I nostering for panthers in Pernam buco. These—all these—are as no thing, they maintain, compared to the excitement of Hun hunting, and the possibility of acquiring as a trophy a real 24-carat Emperor (whose mail ed fist would look so well on your bil liard-room wall between the pen guin s a»ntlers and the wombat's tail feathers), or a solid silver, hall-mark ed Crown Prince, worth his weight in apostle spoons. A few days ago I met a friend, who has just returned from an extended sporting trip through British...
HYPNOTISING SOLDIERS. The Latest Medical Marvel. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
HYPNOTISING SOLDIERS. The Latest Medical Marvel. One of the most interesting of the medical discoveries which have re sulted from the tending of the wound ed and disabled is the value of hyp notic suggestion in the cure of men broken down under the constant phy sical and nervous strain of modem warfare. In the condition known as shell shock, in which the sufferer, though not" actually hit by a shell, has suf fered from - temporary loss of mem ory, sight, smell and taste, as the re sult of concussion, hypnotic sugges tion has been the most potent rem edy of the physicians in charge. Describing the treatment of one of these shell-shock cases, a physician at one of the London Army hospitals stated recently:— "The patient is seated in a chair and is brought by the operator into a slight degree of hypnosis in the or dinary way. He is told to clear his mind of all other thoughts and to concentrate on the single subject of his cure. If, as often happens, his vision is affected, he is told ...

The Place of Dragons CHAPTER III. Shows Lights From the Mist. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
The Place of Dragons By WILLIAM LE QUEUX. By Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London & Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III. Shows Lights From the Mist. "But Edward Craig is a young man while Gregory must be nearly sev-i enty!" I exclaimed, staring at Dr. Sladen in blank amazement. "Exactly. I attended Mr. Gregory a month ago for influenza. But I tell you the body lying yonder is that of voung Craig!" declared my friend. Then he added: "There is something very extraordinary about the whole affair, for Craig was made up to ex actly resemble uis uncle." "And because of it "was apparently done to death, eh?" ;j "That is certainly my theory. _ "Amazing!" 1 exclaimed. "This in creases the mystery very consider ably." Then gazing around, I saw that the two doctors, who liad assist ed Sladen in liis examination, were talking aside eagerly with the detec tive while Mr. Day, a sh- rt, thick-set man, with his white-covered cap re moved in the presence of the de...

THE SONG OF THE LANDSTURM. I'm Hans of the Landsturm! Hoor&y| Tlie Kaiser's commands I obey That all must be smitten, Russ, Frank, Jap, and Briton, Who dare his desires to gainsay. I know I'm not much with a gun (Which they tell me will still be Mark 1), But give me civilians, I'll shoot 'em by millions, And bury 'em, too, just for fun. For I'm Hans of the Landsturm, The Emperor's Landsturm, Who's lord of the earth, air and sea. Not Fritz of Ersatz, Nor Ludwig the Landwehr, But Hans of the Landsturm! That's me! I'm Hans of the Landsturm! (Ap-. plause.) I am old to be thinking of wars, But I once did the goose-step - (No decadent new step) At which the fool foreigner roars. So on with our uniform blue, (We'll show in a moment who's who, Guarding bridges and stations And kidding relations With stories of bold derrin-do. For it's "Hands off the Landsturm," True sons of the Kaiser, Who sets all the world by the ears. If there's blood that wants let ting, We're well in the bettin...
Deafness in Children. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
Deafness in Children. Nearly all the deafness that does : not exist from birth is strictly pre ventable, inasmuch as earache usual ly gives ample warning. The child who suffers a severe and prolonged earache should he taken at once to an ear specialist. .The chronically discharging ear is a condition that exists in ahout two per cent of the children of school age. Because the discharge is ordin arily slight it is almost sure to be neglected. The result is that the drum of the ear is injured and the ' hearing permanently lost. More-; over, as long as the ear runs there is J always- the danger of mastoid trouble arising. To have chronic discharge of the ear is like living over a pow der .magazine, rrhe explosion may never come, but there is always a dangerous possibility. Some life in surance companies reject applicants who have ear discharge. The condition often requires con tinued treatment. The longer the ear has been neglected the longer the time required for a cure. Skil fully tr...
Bran Tea for Colds. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
Bran Tea for Colds. A very good _ drink in cases of colds', fevers and restlessness from pain is made in the following way: Put a handful of bran into a pint and a-half of cold water; let it boil for rather more than nalf-an-hour, then strain it, and, if desired, flavor with sugar and lemon juice. But it is a pleasant drink without any addi tion.
TUNE-DEAFNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
TUNE-DEAFNESS. Everyone has heard of color-blind ness, "but few people are aware that there is such a malady as tune-deaf ness. It prevents those affected from appreciating music, which to the mel ody-deaf is nothing but noise. The most intelligent people often suffer iiT-this way. Empress Catherine of Russia used to declare that music was a nerve-trying din, and Napoleon I. hated any form of melody. Victor Hugo had to be coaxed by the.compo ser who put his famous lines to mu sic. "Are not my verses," he used to say, "sufficiently harmonious to stand without the assistance of disagree able noises." Doctors say that the power to ap preciate music depends upon a per fect combination of the nerves and brain. Some people's nerves readily carry musical sounds to the mind, whilst in others nerves impede their passage to the brain-cells. Good mu sicians are more often born than made. Nature has provided them with nerves which instinctively carry mu sical chords to the brain. That is why a ...
EAST'S FIRST CASE. The Story of a Theft that showed a Detective at his worst—and best. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
| EAST'S FIRST CASE. 1 . ; ; The Story of a Theft that showed a Detective at his worst—and best. By Violet M. Methley. Hervey East yawned and glanced at his watch. It was too dark to see the country through which the train was passing, and his solitary com panion was in no way companionable. East suddenly realised that, since leaving Liverpool Street nearly an hour before, the man in the opposite corner had scarcely stirred, had never lowered the outspread sheets of a daily newspaper, which he held as a shield before his face. Nothing of his person was visible save two blue serge trousered legs and a pair of tan boots. Both the feet and the hands which held the newspaper were singu larly small, and on the little finger of the right hand was a curiously chased gold ring. Not much material on which to exercise the powers of deduction of a detective, travelling northwards to in vestigate his first important case. East was very young and very keen; as to his professional capabilities, t...
Observant Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
Observant Youth. "And what," inquired the visitor, who was "being nice" to little Bob bie, "are you going to do when you grow up?" "Be a business man," responded Robert, "like father. He took me down to his office last week, and I'm going to work like him, an* have a good time." "And what are you going to do in business?" pursued the visitor. "Going to do just like dad," repeat ed the youngster. "Catch the train every morning, and, when I get to the office, light a big cigar and sit down at my desk, and say there's so much work to do it's no use beginning till after lunch, and then go' out with an other big man, and eat and eat till I can't eat any more, and then go back to business and ask everybody else why the work ain't done, and then get so mad because nobody does any thing that I'll go home early, and be so tired I can't do a thing except read the paper and smoke more big cigars and rest!"
EXPLAINING THE WAR. MACHINE GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
EXPLAINING THE WAR. MACHINE GUNS. Machine guns are weapons design ed to fire the ammunition used by the military rifie with great speed. They are, in fact, rifles with a me chanical feed which supplies them rapidly with cartridges. In all mod ern patterns they are automatic in action. The gas produced by the explosion or the shock of the recoil opens the breech, ejects the spent cartridge, loads the rifle, closes the breech, and fires the charge. These complicated operations are carried out with extraordinary speed. To give an example, the Maxim, one of the best-known machine guns and the pattern that is employed in the Brit ish Army, can fire at least 450 rounds a minute, or over seven shots per second, and if in exceptionally good order and cleverly operated can dis charge '600 rounds a minute. In the Maxim gun the cartridges ■ are fed into the weapon by a belt. The barrel slides one inch as it re coils and thus actuates the mechan- j ism. ; As it flies back it rotates a | crani' ...

MEDICAL MEMS. The Children's Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 7 August 1915
MEDICAL MEMS. The Children's Teeth. Many mothers do not trouble.about their children's first teeth, and it is no uncommon sight to see tiny tots of three or four years with a row of decayed teeth. As soon as children can hold a toothbrush they should be taught its use; until then their teeth should be washed with lukewarm water, containing a little borax, after each meal.
