Walking and Health. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

Walking and Health. The man or woman who hus culti- vated thc habit of a daily walle has minimised tho chances of falling a victim to n good ninny different ills, and thoso who have not yet got into the habit cannot do better than to be- gin straight away. livery day a short walk should bo taken, and tho dis- tance, when feasible, may ho in- creased with advantage till tramps of ten miles or more are Indulged In without undue fatigue. But this must bc done gradually; the man who, after sitting for months at his desk and neglecting exercise almost entirely, suddenly sets out on a twenty-mile tramp will bo only upset and put out of gear, lîegln with a short distance, and, above all, keep the practice up regularly, and you will soon feel a dirCcrent being; your liver will work like a clock, the blood will bo purified, and will course gently through every vein, while the brain will bo invigor- ated to perform the dniîy task without fatigue.

Deep Water Port [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

Beep Water Port The Westbury Municipal Council has decided to secure a visit of the Parliament party in connection with a scheme to construct a railway from Westbury to Beauty Point, and the Beaconsfield Council has a proposal, in reference to a deep waterport to bring forward, Another scheme to run a railway from Launceston, down the Western side of the Tamar, is also proposed to connect with the port. On the opposite side of the river, there is a desire, to con- nect with the Scottsdale line, near Karoola and establish a wharf at a point, opposite Beauty Point, or a little higher. This scheme again conflicts with the Bridport project, so that port and railway facilities are rather a mixed queston at pres- ent.

THE GREAT REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

THE GREAT REMEDY. Por those whoso hearts are sick with care, tor those who consort with despair, for those who work, for those who weep, there is no dope that equals sleep. The kind of sleep we used to know, when we were children, lons ago, Hie kind of sleep that na- ture brings, wherein we hear sera- phic wings, the kind of sleep that closed our eyes when smoothed by mothers' lullabies - ah, that's thc balm for heart and brain, tho cnn. for every mortal pain! One night of sleep is worth a ton of any drug be- neath the sun. One night of sleep will do more good than all the doc- tors ever could. One night of sleep, when tired und bluu, will lix you up as good as new. If you'd enjoy this noble balm, your soul must be sereno and calm, and If that calmness you'd attain, your lite should be without a stain. If, when you seek your downy bed, your conscience prods you in thc head, recalling actions mean and base, your falsehoods in the market place, the evil things that you havo wrought si...

THE JOYS OF AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

THE JOYS OF AGE. When she was near thu end ut her lung life Mrs. Julia Ward Hewe said te a friend that the world grew con- stantly more interesting to her. Every year she got more pleasure out of tho passing days. And she was ninety when she said this. She was subject, of course, to tile weakness and in- firmity of such a ripe old nge, and she had to diminish the activities In which she delighted. Unt that made no difference to her. The bowl of life, she said, grew sweeter as she drank it; nil the sugar was at the bottom of the cup. Thia ls that gentle art ot growing old gracefully on which Phillips Brooks preached a sermon entitled "Tho Good Wine at tho Feast's End." At the wedding In Cana, when the master of tho feast said to the bride* groom, "Most men set. forth good wine at the beginning, and* when men have well drunk, then that which is worse," ho declared the common course of human life. "But thou." said he, "hast kept the good wine until now." That is what we want. "Grow old...

The future of your country is in your hands. 2. Look your host by all means, but be your best also; the iirst attracts to begin with, but the second pro- duces tue most lasting effect. 3. You must obey the laws of hy- giene, respecting fresh air, exercise, good food, cleanliness, and suitable clothing. A healthy girlhood Is tho best foundation for a happy lifo. 4. You must know about cooking, housekeeping and domestic economy. 5. You must learn about the feed- ing and caro of children; this know- ledge does not come by instinct, as many suppose. ti.

SO WE GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

SO WE GROW. A number of painstaking German scientists have given the results ot their observations concerning the growth of the human body. They lind that development ls most rapid in infancy. The average length of a baby llfteen days old is l'JlAln. During the next fifteen days it gains lVàiu» but thenceforward the rate of growth gradually diminishes until the age of live is reached, after which the growth is l%in. per year. The full height is reached at the age of twenty-five, the average height o£ a mau at that age being 5ft. 91u., and of a woman about Dft. 2iu. Tile stature remains stationary until the age of fifty is reached, and then the height gradually decreases.

THE BOY ON THE PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

î THE BOY ON THE PLACE. A coat anet a hat nnd a bat and a bal], With other tilinga littering parlor and hall; There's toys hy tho dozen about on tho floor. While tables and sofas aro covered with more. It is easy to tell, without seeing his face, That " there ia a riotous boy on tho place. There's plenty of work for the duster and broom, For juvenile earmarks adorn every room ; Chairs turned topsy-turvy, with cur- tains awry, And books in disorder which should be laid by. Of quiet arrangement there isn't a trace; It proves there's a riotous boy on the place. A yell and a squeal and a whoop and hello. An anxious inquiry, ''Where did that shoe go?" A pout and a giggle, a shout and a cry, A sob or a smile or a tremulous sigh; A challenge to run the intruder a race, All shows there's a riotous boy ou the place. A rush and a slam and a bounce and a jump, A push and a struggle, a fall and a bump; A laugh quito as Jolly as that of St. Nick i'eruaps 'tis a Harry, a Joe or a Dick; in any eve...

Cleaning Up. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

Cleaning Up. The recent visit of Mr. Wads- worth, Chief Inspector to the Board of Health, and the house to house visits paid by him in company with the local Inspector have been the cause ot great industry in the matter of cleaning up ot back yards, etc. Local carters have had quite a busy season in coping with the great de- mand for their services which sprang up. The quantities of stable manure, old iron, jam tins and mis- cellaneous rubbish which have been carted are remarkable. Probably the back yards of Deloraine taken colletively have not been in such excellent order for many years as at the present time.

Sanitary Science. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

Sanitary Science. 3 (.By Debraiiie .Municipal Inspector) It is a law of nature that those i'ices Ot anim its which tail to ad ipt themselves to their surroundings are doomed to perish. Man, however, has learned to adapt his surroundings to himself. As previously mooted Sanitary Science is the body of facts and rules which teach the art of liv- ing under those external conditions which best promote health and length of days. While men lived a purely nama lie life, sanitary require- ments may have been almost non- existent; as soon however, as men came to live together in settled com- munities regulation .became necessary We know from the writing of the ancients, and from what remain to this day that ancient Rome hid a pablic health system aid mar vellous works for water-supply and dranane.

CONSTRUCTIVE THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

CONSTRUCTIVE THINKING. By ItcMerfR. Tillen. "Funny how the fellow up ahead ever got thero. Wonder what the old man sccs In him? I've got him beat a mlle." .My friend, when thoughts of that kind come Into your mind, cut them out. Tho thing for you to do is to get busy. If you want to think, and you ought to,-do it along right lines. Constructive thinking-that's tho thing. The man who wins Is ho who can think. This round-about, aimless "wondering" leads nowhere unless It bo the valley of failure. Think, yes, but with a purpose. Have an object in mind, and keep it in mind. As a man in business you know the value of system. You see it illus- trated every day. The olllco you are in is run on a systematic plan or it could not pay salaries. Apply a lit- tle of this knowledge to yourself. If it ls a good thing for the house, it ls probably a better thing for you. Systematise your thoughts. Use your thought energies with a pur- pose. Think, by all means, but along right lines. Don't spend yo...

The Farmer and the Middleman. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 July 1911

The Farmer and the Middleman. During the past few weeks we hav e pub ¡shed several contributions from Mr A. Daly, of Meander, on the above mentioned subject, Mr Daly seems to have given much attention to the subject and presents his case very clearly. We do not accept responsibPity for all the figures quoted, but these can be eas- ily verified if any of our readers con- sider it necessary. 'Pte'sinnahly Mr Daly has taken every precaution on this point. We know enoui'li nbout the subject to be aware that farmers .do pay excessive prices for their implements snd other requisite!, and we recommend the articles to their careful attention. In reference to the proposed remedy, by making the manufacture of these articles a state monopoly, instead of a private one there is room for argument. In conformity with our policy of neu- trality on such questions, we offer no opinion, 'but 'publish 'süifáble'con- tributions on either'side of the ques- tion.

The Pawn ûf Fate. A TALE OF TREACHERY, LOVE, I AND THE SEA. j A child's cry! Startled, Mark Dal- ' rj'uinlti came to a halt on the cliff's ' down, listening curiously for silence 1 to give the lió to his imagination. 1 Prom afar came the raucous call ot the curlew, tho dull booming echo of : an incoming tide against the 1 rocks o£ that iron-bound coast, and | tho sucking hiss ,ot receding waters ! amid the loose stones of a shingle beach. Beyond those, the ordinary sounds associated willi the shore, still- ness greeted the listening man's s tl nilling ears. "Strange," he muttered, hoarsely. "Could have swern I hoard a kid cry out just then. Couldn't have been one, though, I suplióse. Those birds at times shriek out calls with a strangely human intonation. It's not likely a child would wander so far from the village. The spot is too dangerous, and-halloa! There it goes again! Its a child light enough." Once again the sound, wafted on the wings ot a sea borne breeze, swept up over the...
