RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 9 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK, It is well known that colors have different effects upon health, Home colors may soothe-green, for In. stance-and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, Is red, which is noted for Its healing qualities. Red has always been a color that has "made itself fell," as tile saying goes, Since good. ness knows when, the Chuinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox In carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkln actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this respect. The Spanlards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles l a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa. per In which the main color Is orange, while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease.

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 9 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET, On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron. omers, in the person of Edmund Hal. ley, who worked up to the end of hisl long llfe, Iis works wore many, but the most notable was his great dli. covery about the comet that· bears his name. Until lils time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or ?vil, but chiefly the latter, and nmany persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrlid head pestilence and war," and, Indeed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the hf. toonth century, and was solemn. ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but thais did not affect the comet, which re. appearerd seventy.flvy years later, and It was this appearance which in. duced Charles V,, Emperor of OCer. many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns, But It came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused it of "wo...

FOOTBALL. NORTHICOTE V. BRUNSWICK, Northcote met Brunswick at Croxton on Saturday last in the presence of a numerous gathering of spectators. S. Hall, A. Beck, and WVitch were included in the Northcote sixteen, replacing II. Thomas (on injured list), l raid, and IHamilton. With the exception of the opening quarter, during which the pIlay was fast and open, the gamne was very one-sided, Brunswick being altogether too good as a combination, while North cote were relying too muchll oil individual effort. Thie main wealkness, however, was on the forward line.. This was manifested time after time during the afternoon, many good rallies bringing the ball withinii range without any addi tion being made to the score. '1'The final result was-- Blrunswick, 10.17; North c'ote ,1.8. Moore (following iand half back) played his best.game for North cote this season, his marking being a feature of the match.

IN LOVE WITH A PICTURB, The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre Is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture, "I fell in love with 'Monna Lisa.'" That was tlhe declaration of Vlncen. zo Plerugla, the man who stole the fatuous picture, made to the police. After he had taken It from the Louvre he said that he went home, locked himself in his room, and stood en* tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La Giloconda. There were times, he said, wlhen he felt that he must destroy the picture or he would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mlrers. One of the Louvre guides at the time tile picture was stolen, stated that hlie had seen visitors sit in front of It for hours, captivated by the se* ductive smile; and the museum au* thiorities often used to bhave letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!" Far ,iore people than Vincenzo Per. ugla have fallen "madly in love with well-known pictures. It was jillais's picturle...

PLAYING GROUND FOR NORTHCOTE-PRESTON F.C. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 9 May 1914

PLAYING GROUND FOR NORTH COTE-PRESTON F.C. To the Editor. Sir, - Your correspondents, "Fair Minded" and "Well-Wisher," have said a lot for and against the football club playing on the Northcote cricket ground. They both clainl to be members of the club, but when a person hides behind a nom de plume it makes one "kind of suspicious." 1 think the whole controversy could be settled if they noted the name of the club on their member's ticket (if they have one), viz., "The Amalgamated Northcote and Preston Football Club," and if they look up the history of the club I think they will find that itwas only on the condition that tlibese two clubs amalgamated that they were al lowed to be one of the Association clubs, I may be wrong, but I have a faint recollection that such was the case. Nevertheless, the fact thatit is a combined team surely gives Preston the right to have the team play on a ground within a reasonable distance of our boundary, and not in an out-of-the-ivay place that would ...

WHEN YOU NaED A GOOD R??8I, By a HIospital Nurse. Ordinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means the most restful positions you can adopt, for, though they ease certain parts of the body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val* ue of putting your feet up as high as *they will comfortably go, It Is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but It Is most restful and good for you, so you may Just as well do it when you are alone, A dtoctor once told me that he was constantly Impressing this "feet-up" treatnlent on girls whose work made It necessary for them to stand about a great deal-shop assistants, teach. era, andti so on, "Glet your feet up as higll as your head whenever you pos. sibly can," he ordered. dls patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs, Another very "comfy," though not ...

The Sentence, London had treated the arrest of Lella with some indifference until it heard of her romantlib marrlage- then in a twinkling it fell to feasting upon that dish of drama, Journalists bombarded Hugh in lli ihotel; he saw none of them. They served up stirring tales of the fliglht from Newcastle - differed as to whether Lolla herself had been kid. napped, or had braved theseas in a small boat, wore convinced that her trial would be one of the sensations of the season. The world Is in Its own way grateful to a nelghbor who goes to prlson to make a newspaper holl. day; and Leila assuredly would ?ave to go to prison, as all the exports agreed, What chiefly concerned the editors was the difficulty of getting her photograph-so they printed her sister's as a solatlum to an expec'ant public.
