RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is well known tlmt' colors have different effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, for in stance—anil others, 'like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colore, however, is red,. which Is noted for lis healing qualities. Red has always iheen a color that has "made Itself fult," as the saying goes; Since good ness knows • when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and tlie . people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Nor does China stand alone in this respect.™"'Tho~ 'Spaniards ' "make"' a point not only of attiring victims- of measles in a red "shirt," but also of feeding thein with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in some'cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ings, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. ' The pe...

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. ' On January 14, 1742, there paused away one ol the greatest of our astron omers, In the person of Edmund Hal ley. who worked up to the ond of his long life, tils works were many, but the most notable waB his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the. latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. "Milton, for Instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid- head pestilence and war," and, Indeed, theyswere commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed In a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fivj years later, and it was this appearance which In duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came onco more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused It of "work lug m...

S'hc ^Leader JUSTICE TO ALL. Published every Saturday Morning. SATURDAY, MAY 9. MIRACLES: AftE THEY CREDIBLE? The possibility nnd credibility of miracles is now being discussed in Mel bourne by the Rov. Dr. Headlam, Moore Iiouse lecturer" for the year. For the past fortnight the lecturer has held the attention of large audiences, while learnedly expounding the speculations and philosophies of the past and present, with the object of combating objections such as summed up in Hume's definition of a miracle—"a violation of the laws of nature." When looked into, this phrase really is meaningless, serving only to show how science ever hides its ignorance of basic truths under an im posing jargon of words, just as the unlettered savage bedecks himself with a necklet of birds'-eggs or cowrie shells. Nature (whatever that may be) is, in the phrase quoted, to be regarded as ever being acted upon by invariable laws, and ulwuys making an absolutely uni form response thereto, before any mean in...

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Llabon. Hugh left Dover on Ills yacht, the Chrlstabel, upon the evening of u gloriouB day of June; he was off Lis boil three days afterwards, and Mat, Michel was trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with- the exception of a dozen or tnori! ' upon the coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days. ; Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don- ! aid, he would never let the word paBS his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest at every turn, he became a veritable terror to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arcli diaconnl functions, insisted upon ac companying his "poor young friend," nnd of doing ample justice to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist in practice, though in precept he frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roBes into hell," as Mat said with the breezy candor...

FROM PRESTON'S WATCHTOWER. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 9 May 1914

FROM PRESTON'S WftTCtf TOWER. Contributed ny Cms. Dear Mr. Editor, —I have been taking a turn as Watchman in Preston's watch towor, and many incidents small and great lmve come under my notice. To anyone keen of observation, a watch man's duties bccomo rather fascinating, and it would be of infinite benefit to our shire if the citizens generally would devote a little of their time in the watch tower, as thereby they would, with a concentration of their attention on Preston's needs—both municipally and socially—more readily appreciate those forces which make for progression, and see through the influences which are re actionary in their tendencies. One of the many great matters of municipal importance which cannot possible escape the attention of a watchful citizen is the bad state of our roads. If a Preston Hip Van Winkle of the last century were to awaken to-day from a 50 years' sleep, he might at first feel somewhat strange in the change of his surround ings produced by progressiv...

BASEBALL. A GRADE. NORTHCOTE V. FITZROY. Northcote A team met Fitzroy at the Northcote park last Saturday, and put up a very creditable performance, being defeated by only 1 run. Fitzroy in their second innings came with a rattle and scored 7 runs, but they were assisted in this through some very bad errors. In the next two innings Fitzroy failed to score, while Northcote scored 4 in the third innings and 3 in the fourth, and at this stage had a lead of 1 run.' Fitzroy in their fifth innings scored 2,and as this was the last score in the game they won a most interesting game by 1 run. The locals batting was very strong, and their fielding excellent apart from that dis astrous second innings. Billings, Begg, Gibaud, Frawley, I* roebel and Brown were the strongest batsmen. Frawley pitched well, and his lidding was also good. Gibaud done all that was neces sary as catcher.
