CLERGYMAN'S SORE THROAT. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 25 January 1918
CLERGYMAN'S SORE THROAT. Professor Keith held that the hu man voice would never have become developed had we not first attained the upright posture. Apropos of this Dr. Geo. Steele-Perkins has found that .a cure for clergyman's sore .throat is to speak up instead of down as in the pulpit. Some years ago he was puzzled to know why chronic pharyngitis and laryngitis produced by over-speaking, are termed "clergy men's sore throat" and not barristers sore throat. Why is this condition so rarely seen in barristers who use their voices more than clergymen, and in stuffier atmospheres ? On thinking over the matter the only difference our authority could perceive between a clergymen's and a barrister's speaking was that a clergyman spoke down to his congregation, and a barrister spoke up to the judge, the former thus pressing on his larynx and throat in a normal position, or rather in a hypernormal position. From that time he has always advis ed such cases to speak looking up to their audie...

She was a shy, silent; smaell per- son, and during the two hours"sttorlt, not a single word could Mr: Browns induce the little maid to-speak, but: her shining eyes attested that she ap- preciated his efforts to amuse her- indeed, she fairly glowed with sep- pressed happiness;.

"Papa,. what flower do you like beat ?!' she asked.. "Why, I don't' know, my dear-wall flower, I think." "Then," cried the little girl, beam- ing with gratitude, "that's. what.
