NATURE'S PRESERVATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 7 March 1914

NATURE'S PRESERVATIVES. Most of th<e objections to preserva tives in articles of food have been based upon the presumption that natural foods do not contain any such subst ances, but recent investigations havo demonstrated that this is not altogoth or true. Strawberries contains salicylic? acid, and, indoed salicylic acid is one of the most widely distributed of vogotablo acids. Oranges, lemons, pears, grupos, and other fruits contnin boric acid, ofton in considerable quantities, insomuch as to deceive chemists who havo examined puro juices or preserves. The finding of boric acid in these does not of itself indicato added preserva tive. And if boric acid in small quanti* ties is really, harmful, then tho health fullness of 'these fruits is question able.

KISSING FOR HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 7 March 1914

KISSING FOR HEALTH. —O From time immemorial, doctors and others have preached against the dangers of kissing. It lias been al leged again and again that while in the act of kissing disease microbes pass from mouth to mouth, and that consumption especially is spread by the practice. liugaged couples, however, may take :ait from the recent statement af Dr. Aashkow, an eminent physician of •reslau, who denies absolutely that kifsniff is dangerous to health. "Cn the contrary,' he says, "far from being harmful, kissing soothes the nerves and has beneficial effects." A few years ago another medical authority came forward with the theory that kissing is a cure for indigestion. His idea is that our mouth contain bcneficcnt microbes that are enemies of dyspepsia, and that one of the surest ways of getting rid of that nasty "after-dinner feeling" is to resort to the pleasant pastime of osculation. A couple of years since there was a vigorous campaign by prudes in Amer ica against kissing, but...

They are so remote that as seen from the earth they appear to be close to each other, while really they are separated by millions and billions of miles. To the eye, the belt of soft light looks like a continuous band of cloth of pearl, but telescopes have the effect of bring ing objects nearer. Thin separates the filmy cloud into many millions of glittering but minute points on the black background of spatfe. At a dis tance, forest trees seem to be closei together, but as they arc approached they separate and stand alone.

The Doctrine of Buddha. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 7 March 1914

The Doctrine of Buddha. Buddha, the founder of the system that bears his name, was born be tween 500 and GOO B.C. He was the son of one of the Rajahs of a small principality in India, and was trained in all the lore of Brahminism, the re ligion of his time. He married, but in a brief while wearied of the life of the Court, and retired into the desert and spent some years leading1 a life- of austere pcnance and mortification, and afterwards many more in pro longed meditation.*. During this latter time he believed he had discovered the key to all the rid dles of life, and henceforth spent his life in propagating- those prin ciples which he believed would bring peace to the troubled souls of men.
