WHY ACID STOMACH'S ARE DANGEROUS. SCIENTIFIC REPORT. May. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 29 May 1914
'WHY ACID STOMACH'S ARb DANGEROUS. SCIENTIFIC REPORT. May: Acid in the stomach is danger ous, and frequently fatal, because acid f rom itscorrosive nature has a natural tendency to destroy the mucous lining of the stomach it self. No one intentionally swal lows hydrochloric acid, but it is often present in large quantities, as the result of food fermentation in the stomach, resulting from the chemical action, which so fre quently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or the indulgence in any form of alcoholic stimulants, including bedr, wine, hquers, etc. This fer mentation causes pain, uneasiness, and discomfort, because of the acid, which burns like a red hot iron, and the formation of gas, which "clistends the stomach, caus ing shortness of breath ,and pal pitation r .the heart. The trouble being entTrely due to the unnatp~i rai condition of- the stomach con tents, and not in any way to the fault of the stomach itself, physi cians have adopted .with marvel, lou...
An Historical Sketch. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 29 May 1914
An Historical Sketch. -a- IV. The mist which surrounds the little grave in the railway reserve has raised a doubt in the mind ot your correspondent X as to the reliability of the assertion that it Sis the resting place ot a child of Constable Smythe, who was in charge ot the Traralgon district about 1868-70. He quotes cer tain negative assiumptlons, par ticularly as to the absence ot any entry in the offlcial registers, but as it has already been pointed out that there are other known deaths ot which no record is extant, it is self-evident that no reliance can be based on that assumption. Above all the conjectures which X imagines faith is rather to be pinned to the word of such ve teran resident as Mr. C. I. Du Ve (who has an intimate knowledge ot the district since the fifties, and who 'has stated again and' again in print that the grave is that of Constable Smythe's intan tant child) presumably speaking from personal knowledge. It I minustake not there are those still min Traralg...
THE TELEPHONE. THE HILL CONNECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 29 May 1914
ITHEW TELEPHONE. THE HILL CONNECTION. · Mr. Bennett, M.H.R., writes that he will be glad to render as'lst ance with the view of securing an extension of the telephone line from Gormandale, through Carra jung, Blackwarry and Bulga, to North Devon, on the south side of the Divide. This connection would give through .commumncatlon from Traralgon to Yarram and be an immense boon to the Hill, resi dents. The hill settlers and people . of Yarram moved in the matter some months ago, and an officer of the department has since been over the route and will furmnish a report* on the probable revenue and expenses. Even if the re port shows an anticipated loss, the department should certainly build the line, as the people who are hemmed in the-hills, 20 miles from. a railway town, are entitled to it. The telephone would help to make their lot brighter, and very prob ably be the means of saving life in case of sickness. It is admitted that had there been telephone communication some years ago a l...
