THE AWFUL PENALTY WE PAY FOR GETTING ANGRY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 July 1914
THE^WFUL PENALTY WE PAY FOR GET-TING ANGRY. 4 -- There are at least two men on this earth who know better than to get angry. One is Prof. Lange, of the University of Copenhagen the other is D.

Working along separate lines, Prof. Lange and Dr. de Fleury have Deen investigating the causes of anger and the effect of anger on _the human system.

AS 0KD13RED. A country tailor recently found himself in an awkward fix. He wanted to order two" flat-irons of the type known as "tailor's goose," but he looked at the order he' had written and shook his head. "'Two tailor's gooses," he mutter ed,; "that don't look right.
