VALUED HIS MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

VALUED HIS MEMORY. He was a furniture remover's-man, and his memory, as he cheerfully ad mitted, was "very convenient." ' "No, I can't remember where Mr. Slyfiit' has taken his family and fur niture." "Come, now;" said thd debt col lector; "he hasn't been gone A week, and you drove the van." "Did I?" "You. know you did." "And it's only a week ago?'* "Of cours?." "Funny how easily a fellow for gets." The collector produced half a sove reign and tendered it. "That ought to rouse your memory," he remarked. "It ought to do so, sir," he admit ted; "but, you see, this ain't no com mon ordinary memory, and. it'll take a deal o' rousing. Why, it cost a cove reign to put it to sleep."

COST OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

COST OTP "WAB. I Colonel Honko, a well-known Ger man authority on war and economies, published rocontly a remarkable stud; of tho cost of wnr. Ho shows conclu sively that a war would no moro ruin a great State to-da.y than it did in -tho past, and that Germany would not bo seriously hit by a year of warfare. Tho cost of a year's war to o power which has 8,000,000 men in tho field, would not be moro than £550,000,000, or about ten shillings per day per man. This would include the first hoavyl cost of mobilisation, oxtrn fortification works, etc. On the first woeks of war would co about an eighth of tho sum mentioned, including about £62,000,000 to cover tho increased demand for gold in civil lifo and business. Tho State would have to provide £180,000,000 during' the first three weeks of war. Colonel Henke predicts that Germany would oasily stand tho cost. Tho first year's war would not cost moro than 6 per cent, of the national wealth, and would bo easily wijjed out by the sav ings o...

ALCOHOL IN ACCIDENT OR ILLNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

ALCOHOL IN ACCIDENT OR ILLNESS. Anyone who has abserved the prac tice of a majority of people when sud donly called on to look after a person injured by accident, or in a sudden attack of illness, or drowning, cannot fail to have observed how in a majority of cases, the first thing done is to administer somo form of alcohol-what over even may bo handy. Thoso who administer this remedy da sire to do something to satisfy their own anxieties, and this remedy is the first one usually suggested. In, Qt majority of cases the remedy does more harm than good. A physician has had occasion to men tion this fact in the caae of a destruc tive gale at sea, whero many persons wero thrown into the water and half drowned. Ho found it necessary to advise all assistants of the danger of giving alcohol to persons in this state. The same is true is many other states -in apoplexy, heart disease, fainting-, loss of blood, etc.

FOOD FOR NERVOUS INDIVIDUALS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

FOOD FOB NERVOUS INDIVIDUALS As a rule, salt moat is not adapted to the requirements of nervous people, B3 nutritious juices go into the brin» to a great oxtent. Fish of all kinds is good for them. Raw eggs, contrary to the common opinion, are not as di gestible as those that have been well cooked. Good broad, swoet butter, and lean meat aro the best foods for the nerves. People troubled with in fcomnia and nervous starting from sleep, and sensations of falling,, can often be cured by limiting themselves to a diet of milk alone for a time. An adult should take a pint at a moal, and take four meals daily. People with weakened nerves require frequent ly a larger quantity of water than {hose whose nerves and brains aro ?trong. It aids the digestion of food by making it solublo, and seems to taro a direct tonic effect.

HEALTH IN THE HOME. WHEN TO TAKE A BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

HEALTH IN THE HOME. WHEN TO TAKE A BATH. A cold sponge bath on rising is a good tonic. But the bathroom should be warm; and vigorous friction with a rough towel should follow. A cold bath in a chilly, room may depress a weak system; here tepid water should be substituted for cold. The feeble might stand, while taking a cold sponge bath, in a bathtub in which there is very warm water up to the ankles. A warm water bath at bed time is excellent, if one can imme diately get to bed without exposure.

Last week he was notified by Inspector Semmens, that three cans containing 750 brown trout .vould be sent to Clunes on the 12tli iiist. for further stocking Birch's 0. eek.

MINE DISASTER. SEVEN MEN KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

MINE DISASTER SEVEN MEN KILLED. The most appalling accident in the history of Bendigo mining occurred at the Great Extended Hustler's mine at about 10 o'clock on Saturday night, when an explosion destroyed the lives o£ seven men. The wliolo staff were working at the 1053 feet level. The deaths were mercifully instantaneous. The cause of the accident will be an unsolved mystery, and it will be buried with the men in their graves, that is, if even they knew, which is by no means a certainty. Explosives were kept in a, square box about 2 feet 6 inefrcrs each way, and Mr H. Mitnley, the general .manager, says there would be but six or seven .packets in, the1'box, in which, nlsoV were detonators, and, fuses. An or dinary onse of gelignite contains _10 packets. It was the explosion of those sixor seven prickets, of gelignito-'tiiat robbed seven men of life, and'the sight of their horribly' mutilated bodies incliunti-d that they must have been standing in front of a well-filled magazine of...

DIGESTION AND THE COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

DIGESTION AND THE COM PLEXION. The digestion has a very great deali indeed, to do with beauty of pom plexion, or the reverse. But tEe com plexion and the eyes deteriorate from' injud.cious eating, even in cases where no dyspepsia may be complain ed of. If the blood be in the slightest degree overheated, or ever so .* littlo cEarged with bile from inactivity ol the liver, the skin comes to grief, and it is th.c skin of the face that suffer# first. The best cosmetic ever invented | could not cure this state of matter? I till the blood gets right again. Na | ture will effect a cure, however, if the diet be lowered, and only cooling food be partaken of. When one, in sum mer, suffers from thirst to a consider able degree, it is a sign that more than the system requires has been eaten. If then large quantities of fluid be swallowed, matters are ren-, dered far worse, perspiration is in duced, and once again the complexion suffers. No better drink can be par taken of for health's sake than...

INSTINCT IN FROGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

INSTINCT IN FROGS. It is s matter, of some dispute to what c*tca, ttye actions of animals are determined by pure unreasonable in stinct.- It has. been stated that a frog will snap at any small moving: object, regardless of its character, and of ftunger or satiety. Some experiments seem to indicate that the frog is cap Able of greater discrimination than had been credited to him. Thus, for example, a frog was offered hairy caterpillars, which it promptly seised, and with equal promptness spit out again. But after about from four to seven such injudicious attempts the fiog had learned his lesson, and tKere after refused similar fare. In another experiment earthworms were so con nected with a source of electricity that Sfie frog received a shock on touching the worm. The frog duly devoured the prey, and showed no signs of dis comfort. However, he refused ' for seven days to touch another earth worm, while he freely devoured other epecies of worms. Similarly, the frog could be taught to...

THE COLD BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

THE COLD BATH. If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not take it, fo» it is doing: you no good. We do not take xold baths for the sake_of cleanli ness; cold'water-" may wash off the superficial dirt, but it does not ex tract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating- effect, anl unless we get that invigorating effect from it we had better seek the invigoration in some other way. It is a mistake to get in to a bath by standing in the cold water and hesitating before taking the plunge, for this drives the blood up toward the head, and is likely tb cause congestion of the blood vessels in the throat. The best way is to stand in an empty bath tub and turn on the shower, so that the cold water will strike the head and shoulders first. If there be no shower bath, souse the head and neck first with a sponge, or duck the head under wa ter, then get in and plunge the whole body under as quickly as possible. Another mistake is to stay in...

SOMETHING IN THE EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

SOMETHING IN THE EYE. Whilst takingr outdoor exercise it frequently happens that some foreign substance lodges in the eye, thus caus ing considerable pain. There are simple measures that can be used to remove the irritating lodgment. Above all, keep soiled fingers and soiled handkerchiefs away from the eye, for to rub it with either may inflame it still further. A vigorous blowing of tne nose sometimes removes the sub stance. Then, closing the lid, and rolling the eyeball round two or three times will often dislodge the speck. The upper lid drawn over the under lid will sometimes give relief. If thJt eye be kept closed for a short time, any foreign substance is likely to work to the edge of the lid, and is then easily removed. Copious bathing is a simple remedy often effectual; of course, if these fail professional as sistance should be sought. Milk and water is a soothing lotion for the eyes.

COMPULSORY MARRIAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

? COMPULSORY MARRiAGCS. Kings of Sinm apparently do not believe in the wisdom of allowing single Women to drift unattached about the- country. In certain districts .fter a girl, lias readied an ago .where her securing for herself a hus band is .considered doubtful, she be ?omes a "daughter off ho King." That is, the King takes upon himself the task of settling her suitably in life. Hia process is quite simple and to the point. He proceeds to the Siamese penitentiary and looks over the various prisoners. There is a law in Siam that any prisoner can obtain his release by marrying one of this class of girls, anu* naturally enough, any prisoner whc.n tha King picks out is not likely to be Backward about consenting to tho ceremony. Nor does it make any dif ference if ho is married, for the men of that country are not restricted to onrt wife. As far as can be learned, there is BO allowance made for the inclination Of the girl in question. She has failed !n her mission in life, as far as s...
