The following" notes will give an account of the different methods in which heat may be applied in order to relieve pain. DRY HEAT. Flannels heated at a fire and applied to an inflamed or pain ful part help to allay pain and inflam mation; they may be kept hot with a hot water bottle so as not to require changing so frequently. Dry heat is helpful in colic and neuralgia. MOIST HEAT. Fomentations: If a fomentation is needed to relieve pain in the abdomen, for example, prepare thus: Get a basin, a large piece of flan nel, a towel, boiling water, and also two smooth rounded sticks, 18 inches long, and li inches thick; if the fo mentation is to be a large, one open the towel and place \ it across the basin; lay the piece of flannel, folded in two or three thicknesses, on the towel as it Hes across the basin, and pour ab...

DISTRICT JOTTINGS EASTLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

:: DISTRICT JOTTINGS :: The visit of the Duke and Duchess is now a matter of history, and East lake has resumed the even tenor of its way. The business people have expressed themselves as well satisfied with the material results of the festive weeks, while the ordinary citizen arises in the morning, and goes to bed at night in the same regular and prosaic manner as before. It ts understood that their High nesses were greatly impressed with the patriotic and progressive appear ance of Canberra's first suburb, and the magnificent bearing of its residents. The Duke's famous remark to the Duchess that while the spirit of East lake burnt in the hearts of the wind kissed, sun-burnt Eastlakians, the Em pire need have no fear-is likely to go down in history. Anyway Eastlake extended a very hearty and loyal welcome to the Royal pair when they passed through on Tuesday afternoon. A great concourse of people gathered at the Eastlake strongpost, opposite the shopping cen tre and the Causeway po...

ARBOR DAY AT CANBERRA (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Canberra Community News — 11 June 1927

ARBOR DAY AT CANBERRA (To the Editor). Sir, The subject of tree planting- is again before my mind, and as each season for such comes its round a sense oí disappointment comes with it. We have long approaches leading to our Federal City, and not one single sign of anything in the way of such being beautified. This is to my mind a mistake on our part, considering thai; by avenue formation in tree planting we give an added value to the whole section reached by such. As this matter has been referred to on pre vious occasions perhaps one may be pardoned, in view of its importance, touching lightly on it generally, and pointing out the material at our dis posal to enable us to achieve the ob ject in view and at the same time establish something likely to be of lasting good. The first point is, of course,- to se cure the authorities' sanction, like wise their assistance. Granted such approval, get to work amongst the school«, and establish Arbor Day. You, Mr. Editor, can follow the idea ri...
