KISSING CURES INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

* KISSING CURES INDIGESTION.--We have now an excellent remedy for indigestion which we venture to say will please the young of both sexes. I)r. A. E. Bridger has been invited to express an opinion on the dangers of kissing ; but he sees no danger; an contrarice, he says that "in the act of kissing we encounter only beneficent org... . u aT .A tht "the advantages of kissing outweigh its infinitesimal risk, for it provides us with microbes useful for digestion." Dr. Bridger's teachings can hardly fail to make kissing even more popular than it is. It will probably be found that the " beneficent organisms "required flourish in great abundance on the lips of the young and comely ; and in carrying out the treatment sufferers will doubtless be eager to abjure the vile heresy of homce pathy by kissing only persons of the opposite sex. The dose of "microbes useful for digestion" will be cheerfully taken both before and after meals. The " British Medical Journal "suggests that we have here a ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

MISCELLANEOUS. Blotting-paper handles for bicycles are a recent invention. The "deer parks in England exceed 300. Unless the ground is ploughed up, or the deer killed, the parks are omempt from tithe payment. Recently, at a Manchester cotton fac. tory, one pound of Sea Island cotton was spun into a thread 1,000 miles in length that was quite strong enough for use. A good authority on horses says that the grey will live the longest, and that the roans come next in order. Blacks seldom live to be over 20. and creams rarely exceed 10 or 15. The publioe in Greenwich Park will often make the whole ground vibrate to such an extent as to interrupt for hours observations at the Observatory, which depend on the motionlessness of a tray of mercury. Pope Leo, during tite cold weather in R?nme; when he goes to St Peter's, and is carried through the Vatican gardens, sits in a red and gilt which is all enclosed in class. The average lies of a ship is about 20 years. About 009,000 elephants are an...

Exchange is no Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

E~xcinsangsi is no Rtolbery. There are a great m any Chinese emi grants in some parts of Australia, and a publican who had had small dealings with the "almond eyes" found them close-very close-though honest. But one day his confidence was rudely shaken. A Chinamana faced the bar, and blandly requested: " Two shilling blaudy.': It was given him in a bottle, and the bottle went up'his capacious sleeve. But as he sought for the money in the folds of his nether gear his face grew blank. " No catches money; by-by catchee money." He put the bottle-or, rather, a bottle -on the bar and retired. He did not return. The Boniface took nup the bottle to re place it; but before doing so he applied it to his nose, and found that it only con tained very mild tea !

Tone is the condition of the body when all is in good order, the blood rich, the nerves steady, the spine and back strong, stiff and vigorous, the skin clear, the man or woman well and happy.

Brahmas. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

BI'tllllsls . It is no part of my duty to enter into the still disputed question of the origin and purity of this variety; suffice to say we have them, and the present show-pen standaird of either the lights or darks is certainly for handsome appearance a triumph of the fanciers art. Small round heads, neat triple combs, profuse leg and foot feather are important points in the breeds. In lights the hackle of pure white should be striped with dense black in both sexes, black tails, and black with white in the foot feathers, the rest of the hbdy pure wvhite. In darks the pencilling of every feather is of much importance in the hens. The ground colour of the feather is grey, pencilled with a darker shade of the same colour. They are a large-sized fowl, with short wide back, breasts full, wide, and deep, the breast bone coming well down between the thighs, and legs a moderatelength. For many years Brahmas were a great favourite in the show-pen. The leading English fanciers' societies up...

Disraeli Dressed for Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

Dilraeli Dresscd for Dinner. As everybody has read, one of Disraeli's firsE friends .in the world of genius and iashion was Sir Edward Lytton ulwoer. " And," said Lord Dalling, " we heard so much at that time of Edward's amazingly brilliant new friend that we were the more disinclined to make his acquaintance." At length, however, Sir Edward got up a little dinner party to convince his doubters. It was to meet at the early hour of those days at one of the Piccadilly. hotels. "There was my brother, Alexander Cockburn, my self, and (I think) Milnes, but for a con siderable time no fMr. Disraeli. Waiting for Mr. Disraeli did not enhance the plea sure of meeting him, nor when he did come did his appearance predispose us in his favour. He wore green velvet trousers, a canary-coloured waistcoat, low shoes with silver buckles, lace at his wrists, and his hair in' ringlets." I forget how the coat was described, but it was no ordinary coat. " We sat down. Not one of us was more than five-and...

Hunts After Buried Treasure. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

Tllnts After Buried Treasure. It is 'doubtful if 'the gsetirch"' for 'buried treasure along the Atlinitlc' coast of North America and the Spanitsh iMain will ever cease. The solitary treasure hunter, who often believes himself guided by some supernatural means, is not an unfamiliar' figure on the eastern coast of the United States. IHere and there at certain points frethly piled-ip heaps of :sand are often found, which indicate that one more seeker for the lost treasure of Captain Kidil has been at work with pick and shovel. At Dungeon Rock in Massachusetts a deep and tortuously wihding shaft, blasted out far intotthe depths of asledge of porphyry, is shown to visitors, where one Marvel and his son worked for many years to find the treasure of 'a pirate. The spirits had told Marvel, so le said, that a pirate chief hlad untold treasure in a care in this ledge, and was overwhelmed there with his plunder by an earthquake. Marvel died without finding any treasure. In the same State, not...

How Various Nations Rest. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

How- Various Nations Rest. For Europeans the attitude of repose is sitting or lying down, and we are apt to believe that there can be no others. Nevertheless, numerous races rest with crossed legs like our tailors, others kneel, and still others crouch down. Priinitive savages rest in this way, while their women kneel. The crouch ing posture, fatiguing for us, is so natural to them that they can sleep in that position. The low caste Hindoos sleep -thus, and in the Trocadero mu seumW an 'ancient terra-cotta shows a crouching Peruvian, with closed eyes and head inclined. :A certain degree of civilisation brings the position with' legs crossed as with our tailors,-with many variants, and a higher civilisation causes the chair to be adopted.- But at first the sitter-does not place himself squarely, with both legs :hanging. He raises one and keeps it on -the seat Thus the classic attittide of the negro -is the -crouching one, and that of the negress the- kneeling. As for their chil dren,...

Food for the Sick. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

Food for the Sick. When preparing food for a sick person, do not ask hint if he is hungry, or what he would like to eat. The surest way of tempting the appetite is to bring to the sick-room some unexpected, daintily-pre pared dish, prettily served, and generally it will be eaten with a relish- which would have seemed utterly impossible to the in valid had he been consulted beforehand. A small tray covered with the whitest of linen, the prettiest of china and the bright est of silver, a spoon for each separate dish, will appeal to the eye and imagination of the sick one, and he will be prepared to enjoy the food so attractively served. Fur ther stimulate his appetite by dishing only a small supply of food, and he will be tempted to ask for more. Be careful that hot food is il'rvdl hot, artnd ld fond soevedo cold, and do ;lot let any food stand in the sick-room.

The Children Who Saved Hamburg. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 9 November 1900

The Children Who Saved Hlamburg. Hamburg was besieged. Wolff, the merchant, returned slowly to his home one morning. Along with the other merchants of the city, he had -been helping to defend the walls against the enemy; and so constant was the fight ing that for a whole week he had worn his armour day and night. And now he thought bitterly that all his.fighting was useless, for on the morrow want of food would force them to open the gates. As he passed through his garden he noticed that his cherry trees were covered with ripe fruit, so large and juicy that the very sight of it was refreshing. `At that moment. a thought struck him. He knew how much the enemy were suffering from thirst. What would they not give for- the.-fruit that hung unheeded on the trees of his or chard ? Might he not. by means of his cherries, secure safety for his city ? Without a moient's delay lie put his plan into practice, for he knew there was no time to be lost, if the city was to be saved.
