II. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
The Instant after Alfred had got out of tho train at Swakeleys Juno Jon a lady had entered Mary's com partment. She was stout, grey-haired, and wheezy, and the first thing she did was to shut the windows. Alfred detested shut windows, so Mary took a hasty prowl down the corridor to see If there were an empty compart ment into„whlch she could move their belongings. Sho quickly ascertained that there was no room elsewhere, and, sudden ly remembering that she had left her handbag on the seat unprotected, hur ried back. The stout lady was step ping down on to the platform, but apparently sho was returning, for her wraps were piled up on the seat she uad chosen. She had not a pleasing face. Mary snatched up lier bag, feeling she had been rash to leave it there unguarded. 'I hope my five-pound note is safe," she thought, utterly forgetting that Alfred had taken charge of it. She searched for the note, naturally failed to find it, and grew crimson with an ger and distrust. "The wretch must...

THE COLD BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 23 May 1914
THE COLD BATH. If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not take It, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness; cold water may wash off the superfl-. clal dirt, but ~it does not extract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water sd'.ely for its Invigorating eifect, and unless we get that invig orating effect from it we had better seek the invigoratlon in some other way. Cold water applied suddenly drives the blood from the skin by constrict ing the capillaries. It also adminis ters a light shock to the nerves, which has an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the 'body. The capillar ies being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart pressure Is greater.. The heart responds to this resistance by greater effort; it beatB more rapid ly and with stronger force. The blood surges through the body more swift ly, and forces its way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that . has closed them Is withdrawn. Thi...

Not a Banquet. A story.,Mr. Taft tolls is about a number of old men who/having been schoolboys together, thought It /vv.puld be an excellent plan to have a New Year banquet together In momory of old times. The most enthusiastic "old boy" among them went to the banquet ex pecting- to have a pleasant evening talking over schooldays, but he was bitterly disappointed. . One man had a troublesome heart, . and lie would talk of nothing else; another had gout; another had a bad liver; another was worried' about his kidneys; another's indigestion mono polised his attention;.and so on, each had trouble with pome organ or other. _ When ho returned home somebody " ;isked the enthusiastic man how he . had enjoyed the banquet. .
