The World's Laziest People. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
The World's Laziest People. There is no doubt that thc Malays arc one of the laziest people in thc world. Except in rare cases they will not take, thc trouble to learn when they arc young, and afterwards if they have learned, they will not exert them- selves to apply their knowledge to any object which requires a sustained ef- fort. That they possess energy is known to any one who has seen Mal- ays engaged in any enterprise which savours of sport. They do not mind thc trouble if there is only some risk and excitement in the work.

Literary Competitions. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
[ Literary Competit I ions. Some three or four months back we had an article on this subject, which we thought might possibly cause S"mc of our local enthusiasts in intellectual culture to make some effort in tlie direction of starting competitions on Deloraine. How- ever, not tlie slightest attempt tow- ards formal.iting practical schemes of dealing with this important sub ject has yet transpired. Whether citizens sufficiently interested have no existence within our boundaries or whether the difficulties lonni perilously large before their vision remain uncertain I'll it a flour- ishing ditttict, which can success- fully carry through a racing pro- gramme limning into four ligures ciunot organise even a small exhib- ition of literary skill appeirs absurd. That the'section iuterested, if SUÙII exists, has not sufficient energy to successfully attack the problem speaks very poorly for their spirit of enterprise unless another solution which we hesitate to voice is offered. This propo...

For Young Folks. SOME NEW OLD GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
lör Young Folks, ¡ SOME NEW OLD GAMES. Here arc some very oki games, but no doubt they will bc brand new to many of our young readers. The first is called "Catching the Snake's Tail," and comes to us from Japan, where it is a great favourite. Thc children form in linc, each with hands resting upon thc shoulders of the player in front. Thc one who is to act as "catcher" is left out. The first child in thc line is called the "head" and the last one the "tail." When time to begin the "catcher" is placed about fifteen feet from the "head"; at a signal he tries to catch thc "tail" or the last child in the "snake" without touching anyone else. The others may defend the "tail" by moving about, keeping the linc unbroken, for if thc linc should be broken it is equal to the "tail" being caught, and that unlucky person must be- come thc "catcher," while thc last named goes to the head of thc linc. Now for the second game, called "Feather Play.". It is very.amus- ing, although it sounds so simp...

BURNS AND SCALDS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
BURNS AND SCALDS. p Evoryono haB been taught from childhood that tho first thing to uV in tho treatment of a burn is lo ex- clude tho air. Any oil or oleaginous preparation at hand may he ap. plied, and, in tho absenco of such powder substance may bo used. Soda or flour may bo found in every house, hold, and either ono of these may bo applied freely. One of thc best emergency applications, becan.se of tho promptness with which it i3 usually obtained, is nono other than molasses. There need bo no fear o£ infection from it, for its action is rather/1 that" of an antiseptic. An .Application which has been employed for hundreds of years is caron oil, made by mixing oqual parts of limo water and linseed oil. This prepara- tion, when at hand, is a serviceable application. If tho skin is broken do not apply absorbent cotton to tho burned surface, as the fibres become entangled in tho injured tissues. Blisters may bo carefully pricked, that the water may escapo and the skin still loft as a ...
CONVULSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
CONVULSIONS. Violent involuntary contractions and relaxing of the muscles; met with in cramp, spasm, and lockjaw. Tho form of convulsions most fa- miliar to us aro tiloso of teething in- fants, or from intestinal disorders, such as worms ,etc. Sometimes they como on with- out noticeable warning; but usually tho child will bo previously disturbed and have moaning sleep, starting, screaming, grating of thc teeth, peevishness, heaviness about tho eyes, or squinting, or rolling of tho eyeballs, and tho thumb may bo drawn across tho palm. Tho first olTort will be to promote a rapid action of the bowels with a full dose of castor oil or calomel. If caused by undigested food, vomit- ing, produced by repeated doses of ipecacuanha, may relievo. As soon as tho convulsion declares itself, hot blanket baths should be administered without more delay than is absolutely necessary to heat the water. Sometimes this form of 6ath relievos quickly, but in some cases-probably in brain complica- tions - ...

In most instar cs tho causo of vertigo, as wo call i( is Clio insufficient supply of blood io I tho brain.

THE ORANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911
THE ORANGE. Tho medicinal properties of thc orango aro not always appreciated as highly as thoy deserve to bc. lt is one of tho most wholesome fi nits wo have. An orange taken bemm breakfast is a very helpful lanni ive, and at any timo of tho day it may bo eaton with advantage. lt has often been recommended as a speci- fic against boils, a largo number, as many as eight in a day, hoing (alum. In influenza it is also useful, a.- it reduces fibrin in tho blood, and bet- tor than almost anything is calcu- lated to assuage tho excessive thirst. Of courso, it is also a gentle laxa- tive, and this property it retains when made into marmalade, so i hat anyono whoso bowels aro SIULL isli will do well to finish off his hi' ik fast with a tablespoonful of Ü .ml marmalade, porhaps tho least, ex- pensive of preserves, especially when mada at homo.
