WAX FOR BURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
WAX FOR BURNS. When a French doctor, named Barthe de Sandfort, claimed to have found a cure Tor burns by means of the application of ambrine wax, a mixture of paraffin, resin, and amber, he was simply laughed at. But at the beginning of the war he was allowed fifteen beds by a doctor who believed in his cure for the treatment of burn ed soldiers. Men were brought to him suffering from the terrible effects of the liquid fire, or inflammable tar, used by the enemy, or after having been burned in some wrecked aeroplane. Directly the men are brought in, the burns, however bad they may be, are painted over with wax, which is still liquid and is applied hot. Then a thin sheeting of wadding is laid over, and another coating of ambrine is applied, and the sufferers will sleep peacefully after the first dressing. In about a week new flesh begins to grow, the tissue becomes whole without leaving any scars. The treatment is good also for frostbite, and for wounds in which the tissue has become...
CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
APTER IX. "Alma Beresford," Cicely repeated, knitting lier brows. The name had no association for her. "It must be some one wanting money," she decided. "If her business is very urgent ask her to wait a few minutes. I will speak to her after tea," she said to the foot man. The solemn-looking butler was al ready superintending the preparations for tea. But as Cicely poured it out, her thoughts kept recurring with curious persistency to the visitor who was awaiting her. Was it someone she had known at the Harlequin, she wondered, someone of the less known members of the company whose very name she had forgotten? She did not remember anyone who at all answer ed to General Barrington's descrip tion of the girl he had met in the village. Stephen talked to Barbara Barring ton, with whom lie appeared to have struck up a violent friendship over little Tony, but his eyes watched his wife. No change of expression that swept over her mobile face escapcd their keen scrutiny. When the Barrington...
HARRIETVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 4 May 1917
HARRIETVILLE A rumor is in circulation to the effect that Councillor J. H. Jones, J P., who re- tires by effluxion of time in August of the present year, does not intend to seek re- election. Councillor Jones has had over 20 years experience as one of the represen- tatives of the South Riding at the council table. During that time he has filled the presidential chair with credit to himself, and in addition has been an ardent worker for the riding in particular, and the shire as a whole. His many friends hope that if the rumour is correct that he will reconsider his decision, and con- tinue to give ratepayers the benefit of his knowledge of municipal affairs. I feel sure his colleagues are of the same opinion.
