Why Nearly Everyone Dreams of Failing. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
Why Nearly Everyone Dreams of Failing. 1—. Nearly everyone has dreamed of falling from a precipice, house top, or other high places, but. other than calling- it a *'night mare," no special reason has been attached to such dreams until re cently, when scientists explained that it is quite —a natural dream, resulting from the habit of prehis toric, mnn of sleeping in tree-tops when away from his cave or cliff or lake dwelling. Whenever night overtook prehis toric man ho dare not proceed through the -virgin forests and jun gles in the dark for .fear some prowling night beast would kill him. IIo dare not sleep ■ on the ground for the same reason, so ho took, to the tree-tops. At the same time, he took great care not to fall, for it was un doubtedly his dread that during-his sleep lie might slip from his high perch and fall, thereby standing chances of bodily injury and also of falling , near some boast- that would promptly kill him. Naturally wh»n such a prehistoric man did fall he awak...

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think it can only be clone with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will gradu...

It Reminds 'Em. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
It Reminds 'Em. a great man once said to a friend: "I think I'll write my recollections." "Very good," said the friend, "but let me caution you not to recollect anything about celebrities that are liying." "Why, what's the danger, anyway?" "The danger," replied the other, "is that is soon as you begin to recollect things about living celebrities they will begin to recollect things about you."

The Lesser Evil. Briggs: You must have a lot of trouble keeping your wife dressed up in the height of style. Griggs: Yes, but it's nothing to the trouble I'd have if I didn't.

STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914
STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In the lives of most of us coinnci dence has played a part. Probably nine out of every ten people can re call events and dates which, co-incid ing with one another, are a source ol wonderment. There are some coinci dences, however, which are of such a character as to call for more than casual comment. In the November issue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there is a photograph illustrating a phen omenon only visible in the tropics — that of sunshine at noon when no sha dow is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's rays, the explanation being that the ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment j in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The penomenon was observed and re corded by Mr. AV. B. Gibbs in latitude 35 (leg. South, in February of last year, and it is a singular coincidence that precisely the same phenomenon was witnessed in 18S1 or 1S82 by Cap tain W. M. Gibbs, of Cardiff, at about the same time of...

An Obstinate Fiddle. 4.

Sam was an important man that night.. After a great display of twitching of pegs, and numerous scrapes, he was ready. But, alas ! ' the first carol was an utter failure.

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
WHEN YOU N£fcD A GOOD REST. : By a ■ Hospital 'Nurse, Ordinary-sitting in a chair or lying on the'sofa are not by any means-the mosfrestful positions you 'can -adopt, tor, though, they ease certain parts of Lhe body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will conif6rtably go; It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet jn the table or the maiiteipi^Cfi, but it is most restful and good for yoil, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," ho ol-dered. His patients used to think this very strange at first, but they fjiiickly realised what i wonderful relief1 it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy." tiioiig...

The Hypothetical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 9 May 1914
The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock, "let me "ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect than Hogarth's line' of beauty, whos^ cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rose petal—a young woman whose culture and charm easily placed her immea surably above all other women in the world—and he were to ask this young woman If Bhe would " "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms. "Yes!" Regarding unconscious humor in the pulpit, intimations of pastoral visitation are a frequent pitfall to ministers attempting to define expli citly the district set apart for the hon or of a call.
