Tell-Tale Nails. CHARACTER IN FINGER-TIPS. A novel philosophy, developed by a smart Broadway munlcure girl, is described lu the "World's Magazine," New York. Miss Adelo IUtchie has applied her intuitive faculties to the study of those who ccme under her notice, and gays that character moy be read as easily by the finger nails as by the palms. I can toll be/oro a word is spoken, she says, if a man owns and drives his own car; whether ho is happy or mo rose, rich or broke ; whether he Is in love or married or divorced.

Value of Uncooked Food. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 30 April 1914

f Value of Uncooked Food, There can be doubt thtt froE.r fruits, nuts, and other fresh and uncooked vegetable food, contain something which is absent from food which has been dried, salted or otherwise preserved. Sailor* whoso bodies havo beon reduced to a most pitiablo state by scurvy reccr cr with most astonishing rapidity when fresh fruits and -green vegetables are added to thoir dietary. No in vestigator has^yet shown Just what this nccessary element is, but that it exists has been clearly shown by illustrations. Careful experi ments havo shown that fresh Juices I possess the- power of destroying germs, especially those which aro capablo of growing in the alimen tary canal. Cooked fresh Juices possess this property also to some extent, but by no means to so great an extent as do uncooked fruit Juices.

Ii copper poison is ! present it is immediately deposited , on the steel. This test never fails. j Other precautions are : Never ac cept a tin which is dented or bulg ing, or which even looks ancient. Nor if the-tradesman takes if from Ills window. Tinned goods make a i brave display there, but It's the wrong place to keep them. All tin ' ned goods, both In shops and in the house, should be kept in a cool, '.dry place, away from the direct ; sun, or the contents deteriorate, j Do not buy tinned goods which I bear no maker's name. | And, when you have opened a tin, j never allow the fish, or whatever it 'contains, to remain in it.

'Well, strangely enough, I did not give the prettiest girls a thought as I came along," he dared to mur mur. "I was thinking of the hap piness of Reeing - you again.

Beet Juice for Long Life. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 30 April 1914

Beet Juice for Long Life. One of the most Interesting dis coveries of recent research by the Japs is the value of the real gar den boot. TUo Japanese love tho I- et, and declare it contains that which will produce long life in tho human race. They tell us the beet is full of iron and other substancc9 which will act on tho human system when ad ministered as u tonic. The beets are cut up and boiled for _ several hours when they are removed from the water, and then tho liquor is boiled down until it becomes a syrup. This is taken in doses ranging from a small wine glass to ono*half a pint, two or three times a day, usually before the person eats a good meal. This is pronounced by some of I ho best physicians as ono of tho most effectual tonics that can bo taken. Large doS'*», such as a half-plut at a time is declared by tho Japa nese to bo a preventative and a euro for gravel of tho kidneys and bladder. It should bo taken until relief is certain, which is said to como in a few days.
