STUDY YOUR EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 8 March 1906
STUDY YOUR EYESIGHT. "Not one person in a hundred is born with perfect eyes," observed an optician, "and it is probably not far from the truth to say that one-half the headaches suffered by people in or dinary health are due to eye-strain. "Fortunately, increased attention is being given to the eyes nowadays, for people are beginning to understand how many bodily ailments are due to nothing but defective sight. Even evils so serious as insanity and sui cide have been traced by ooullsts to eye-strain, which causes an excessive' expenditure of nervous energy. "The use of glasses which relieve the tension on the sight is, of course, the chief remedy, but oculists are dis posed to frown on pince-nez or fold ers, and to advocate the use of spec tacles. This is because not one nose in a thousand is formed so that the eye-glasses will maintain the exact angle desired for the corrèction of de fective sight, while spectacles can be made to keep their adjustment." Good daughters make good wiv...

THE MAN WHO DOESN'T PROPOSE [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 8 March 1906
THE MAN WHO DOE8NT PROPOSÉ and attention íor years, and at the end walk off and leave her to marry some one with whom he has only, been acquainted for a few weeks. The girl whom he has first honored with his attentions has been single hearted all this time, and because he has been calling on her regularly and taking her to places of amusement she has discouraged all attentions from any one else. She has never doubted that they , were to be married in the end, though/ she has nothing more definite to pin her hopes on than his steady, unwaver ing attentions. And so she goes on wasting her time, her love, her best years upon a dream. Now, there is such a thing as being too modest or too little assertive in cases like this. As a matter of fact, a man has ab* solutely no right to monopolise a girl's time unless he has some definite in' tention of marrying her. The constant companionship ought to prove to him very soon if she is the right woman for him. And if she is not, then he should l...
SAND DRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 8 March 1906
8AND DRAINS. A machino has been patented in Scotland for cutting out drain« in farm land, laying the drain, and fill ing In with the excavated soil. The remarkable part is that instead of drain tiles, a layer of sand is laid and covered, and this the inventor claims is the one perfect and natural drain ing material. The inventor says: "At first sight one is inclined to laugh at the idea of a sand drain; but only in our thoughtless ignorance. As a drain material, sand has, and can have no equal. In the first place, it forms a perfect natural channel, being, in fact, nature's medium for the exit of sur plus water from all soils; secondly, it is available everywhere, and costs only a fraction of the price of drain pipes; y, a sand drain will neither nor get out of repair. An other consideration is that sand lends itself readily to manipulation by ma chinery, so that the machine which opens the drain can deposit a layer of sand in the bottom of the channel, and fill in the excavated soi...

AGRICULTURE, WHERE GREAT BRITAIN'S WHEAT COMES FROM. la an official paper issued by the United States Department of Agricul ture interesting details concerning the sources of the wheat supply of Great Britain are given. There are three great trans-oceanic trade routes, knowu suveraily as the North Atlantic, the South Atlantic, and the Mediterranean.

Over the North Atlantic route, chief ly by steamships and loaded in bulk, come directly to the ports of discharge the spring and winter wheats and Hours from the eastern ports of the United States and Canada. Until re cently this route was by far the most important; over it came regularly from 85 to 90 per cent, of the total flour im ported, and 40 to 50 per cent, of the t...

WHEN DOES DEATH COME? [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 15 March 1906
WHEN DOES DEATH COME? When does a man die? Is It when be loses consciousncss, or when re spiration stops, or when the heart ceases to heat? "I should say," replied a physician to whom the questions were put, "that there is no exact and definite moment of death. "Wheh you come to think of it, a human being begins to die directly he or she is born, fcjvery one of us is gradually dying all the time. The moment to which death 1b ordinarily ascribed is when the breathing ceases, but this is a purely arbitrary idea, and no doubt arises from the old idea-that •11$ and breath are the same thing. '¿There are many eases where the héart continues to beat after the breath has gone, and no doubt In such iustancos if respiration could be re stored there would be a chance of re viving the patient. In the case of the lower animals, too, experiments have shown that the heart may have ceased beating for some minutes, and yet the apparently dead creatures can at times be revived. "It is obviously, the...
THE FORCE OF NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 15 March 1906
THE FORCE OF NATURE. Nature bends uo head to the dust, to look for ever downward. Nature makes 110 man a cliattcl. Nature has implanted in all souls the thirst, the passion heart of powers, to look with impatience on prescribed bounds, to climb the steep, to dive into the ocean, to court dan ger, to spread himself through the new world which he was born to in herit. Nature's life, nature's impulse, nature's joy is freedom, and a greater vioience to nature cannot be conceived than to rob man of liberty.

"In spile of the physician's decree that she could not live," continued Sir Arthur Stamford to Judge Ashburton, "Mrs. Curtis rallied and continued very comfortable for nearly a year longer, finally passing away at Cannes. Mr. Curtis and his daughter returned to America immediately after this event, and Mrs. Marchinont's first thought after lauding was, of course, for her child. She sought lier maid in the simple home she had arranged for her, but the girl was not there, and she could obtain no intelligence regardiug her. She went to the bank where she liad deposited money for her; but was told that she liad drawn out the iull amount that had been placed to her crédit. Impossible, Mrs. March moot insisted, for she had remitted a large sum on a certain date from Europe to be placed to her account, it was never received, they told her, and the poor yo...
