KEEP BABY'S HEAD COOL! [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

KEEP. BABY'S HEAD COOL I From birth the head should be habitually uncovered night and day indoors, and merely protected by some light, pervious cap or hat in the open air; as, if perspiration of the scalp be induced, cold in the head, sneez ing, cough, etc., are not unlikely to follow. Moreover, the hair may be injured in its future growth and strength. All woollen, silk or other lining should be discarded, there being great tendency ih childhood to irrita tion or congestion of the brain, which mismanagement, especially during .and sometimes after teething, may fan mio inflammation; and as in health children's heads are .warmer than at a more advanced age while the bodily warmth is lower, it is wrong to increase the heat by unnecessary covering.

HEALTH IN THE HOME. KEEP CLEAN NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

HEALTH IN THE HOME. KEEP CLEAN NAILS. Some time ago a bacteriological in stitute conducted some experiments on dirt taken from finger nails. The process was to put in "cultivating mixtures," such as are used for sup plying germs with food on which to develop. The crop that grew from the germs in the dirt was a varied one, including 36 kinds of microcci, 18 of bacilli, and many others. That a wound, or cut, or even a scratch should never be touched with dirty nails is an obvious inference. In some parts of the country a scratch from a nail is held to be poisonous. It is not the nail, but the dirt, that gives the "poison."

ALIVE WITH WORMS. COMSTOCK'S "DEAD SHOT" WORM PELLETS PROVED AN EXCELLENT REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

ALIVE WITH WORMS. COMSTOUIt'S "DEAD SHOT" I WORM PELLETS PROVED * : AN EXCELLENT REMEDY. Mrs M. Johnson, 135 Elizabeth street, Wellington, N.Z., writes : "Perpiit mo to express my grateful appreciation ot tho vnluo of your Comstock's 'Dead Shot' Worm Pellets; My little girl, aged three years, was very bad, continually picking her nose, and jumping about in her sleep at nights, till she was afraid of being left alone night or day. My husband, after bringing homo different so-cilled remedies and 'certain cures,' all of 110 earthly good, decided to give Com stock's 'Dead Shot' Worm Pellets a fair trial. I smiled wlion I saw what he had, as I was sick and tired of try-, ing to cure tho poor child. After taking tho first duse the result was , marvellous; she must havo been I , simply alive with worms. I continued the treatment, giving hor a pellet in j ? tho. morning, .and a teaspoonful of | castor oil at night, and I am pleased j to say that she is thoroughly cured, | and has had 110 re...

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

FEDERAL PARLIAMENT Mr Hans W. II. Irvino, M.II.ll. (member for Grampians), speaking on the question of reducing the number of days and hours the Federal Parlia ment should sit during the session, spoke in opposition to sitting on three days per week only, which was sug gested, on the 22nd April, as fol lows :-So far as I can gather from the remarks that have fallen from the honorable member for Gwydir, and others, they have, practically come to the stage of the unionist. They want as little work as possible between meals; they want the highest pay they ..an got; they want less to do and something in the way of free drinks to encourage them to stand up to it. Tho honorable member tor Riverina was perfectly correct. I do not believe that the average member of this House receives more than five or six 1 letters a day. But, assuming thaPlte gets ten letters a day, how long does it take him to answer themT I know ? -that I reoeive five or six letters a day, though sometimes I get eight o...

MENTAL DEFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 5 May 1914

MENTAL DEFICIENCY. If you are able «o judge accurately .which of tw» weights is the heavier, you are mentally deficient, according to Dr. Demoor, a Belgian physiciaD and scientist. Dr. Demoor doesn't go quite as far as to declarc this is an infallible rule, and you may possess this ability with being, pcrforcc, weak-minded but, in 9 series of experiments made by this doctor, those who guessed correctly which of two objects was heavier were known to be weak-minded, while those who made errors in their guesses were all "normal. One experiment along this line oi considerable interest was carried on by Dr. Demoor among 380 children Hrhose ages varied from six to fifteen y«ars. For this the doctor prepared Iwo bottles by covering them with black paper. These bottles were of different size, which could be told at 'a glance, but in each bottle the doctor put a heavy mineral until both the Urge and the small bottle had exactly the same weight. The black covering prevented the children from ...

CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 8 May 1914

CHAPTER IX. Bui if Sheila Danvers waB sad over night, .she had no time tor melan choly on the following morning. After all, she was young, and her glass told her that she was beautiful. The bun was filling her bedroom with a gold en light. She sprang out of bed, washed and dressed quickly without waiting for Nanny's aid, and was out in the garden some time before breakfast. She could not help a sense of intense relief at the absence of Ralph; and this sense of relief she reproached herself for, as she knew quite well that what gave her plea sure gave poor Aunt Margaret the keenest pain. Nevertheless, she was glad. Ralph as a little boy had been tiresome, selfish and quarrelsome. As he grew older, his greatest delight was to give Sheila sharp pinches on the sly. All these were objectionab'e enough; but the last time she was home his manner had been insolent and overbearing. He had remarked boldly on the color of her eyes, ihe length of her tawny hair, and the shape of her feet. It wa...

FALCONRY AS A MODERN SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 8 May 1914

FALCONRY AS A MODERN SPORT. Prominent among the features of the May Windsor Magazine, Falconry as a modern sport is described in its latest phases with many good illustrations from drawings and photographs. In the course of the article the writer says : "Falconry, curiously enough, takes its name l'rom the female bird, the male bird being known as a tiercel, which is a third smaller in size than the female.

Outrage in Sydney. A PRIVATE HOUSE ROBBED [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 8 May 1914

Outrage in ^vduey. A PRIVATE LiOUdE LWUBED For dramatic suddenness and ' impudent daring nothing since the early bushranging days has equalled in the annals of crimp in New South Wales a "hold up" which occurred at a house at the corner ot - Flinders and Short streets, DarlinghurRt, in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Four men drove up to the place in a motor car, walked upstairs, and .t the point of the revolver com manded the members of » card party, numbering over twenty, to hand over their valuables. The robbers gathered from the astonished party over £500 in money and jewellery. The victims of the outrage had _ been the guests of Mr Joseph Batten during the eveninp. Before mirlnicht the ladies of th. party had left for home, and about twenty male friends remained ' behind for a chat.

HOW PINS DISAPPEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 8 May 1914

HOW PINS DISAPPEAR. Fot many years the! world has been baffled by the problem of where the pins go that are turned out In milliono of millions-by the pin factories. But the problem seems to have bef solved at last. A Paris scientist, T)v. Xtvier, has been experimenting on pins, hairpins, and needles by the simple process of' watching a few. He states that they practically disap pear into thin air, by ohanging Into ferrous oxide, a brownish rust that soon blows away in dust. An ordinary hairpin took only 'IJ4 days to blow away. A steel nib lasted lust under fifteen months. A common pin took eighteen months to vanish A polished stgel needle defied iho ravages of the atmosphere longest, taking two and si half year's to disap pear* .So the reason why the world is not 6 foot deep in the pins it buys is, it seems, exactly the same which makes an iron surface scale off when exposed (or 8 loss time to the atmosptoie wltfc' pl SUe ^rouction
