CAN WOMEN TALK LONGER THAN MEN ? [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 10 February 1914
CAN WOMEN- TALK LONGER THAN MEN ? The reason why a woman usually has "the last word" is scientifically explained in the *Paris "Excelsior" by Professor Chassaigne. "Women are able," the writer says, "to talk for a longer time khan men, and with less fatigue, because of the peculiar forma tion of their respiratory system.. "Woman's lungs cover a wider surface than those of man. , On the other hand, her windpipe and larynx are much smaller. By way of Illustration, lgt us take two vessels. one wide and the other narrow necked, a"d we shall find that liquid passes mich more rapidly through the former than through the latter. "In other wrords, a man exhausts his suplly of vocal energy at once, while woman is able to "'tilise it for a sustained effort." Conrad Gruebelmann. was rewarded by the mnicipalit7 of Haida, Bohemia, with a' prize of £3/10/ on the birth of his 30th child.,

DON'T WA until you are worse before starting a campaign against disease. No n;;. ter how slight may be your indlisposition your duty to yourself demands that immediate steps be taken to disperse it. Of course, you expect to get better and not worse, but where health is in question you are never justified in leaving anything to chance, and, as is 'vell known, indis position, instead of disappearing of its own sweet will, frequently develops serious disorders if neglected. Your safest course is to TAKE o BEECHAM'S PILLS which are the World's finest household remedy for the cor rection of derangements of the stomach, liver, or kidneys. Slight headaches, loss of appe tite, a nasty taste in the mouth and other little symptoms of that sort are indications of digestive disorder, and may be regarded as Nature's warning of worse troubles to follow if the cause of the present ail ment be not speedily removed.

W' Lawson.' the inew Minister. said that, it was not intenided that the sub-committee should inauire into thie general schlemin, but .that it should ascertain any weaknesses in the method. Its chief duty was not to perceive virtues. but to find faults. In. the report there is no 'eference to those men who hal been successfil. The inquiry had been confined to ce:rtain dry areas. No men tion was made to the '"wet" areas. It was not ,to le considered that the 'eport of the committee was to be taken as a con demiation of the nolicy or thne administfra tion. It is inevitable that in the working out of such a big policy that certaii anomolies would exist. The obect of the sub-committee was to point out the failures in order that the administration might be more perfect. There is no criticism of the general principle of the various Closer Settlement Acts, but the suggestions for amendments are matters of detail. It is true...
