THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
THOUGHTS. (BY MERNDA, I have been thinking what a won derful thing life is. No matter from what standpoint we ,take it, it is a complex question, and as we live and act so that life will be to a great ex tent. How often we see men and women wreck their lives for what is apparently a trivial thing when com pared with the serious problems of human life. There are several es sential points that tend to make life happy and contented, and I purpose to name a few points that, in my opinion, tend to make life happy. My first point is love. I pity the man or woman who has not love in his or her composition. The pre dominating feature of Christ's religion is love; not alone love for those near and dear to you, but for your Coun try, your King, and all that is good. Woe to the man or woman who casts love for things detrimental to their souls and their health. Another very important factor in a happy life is the control of temper. I venture to say nothing in this world has done more harm to a ...
Correspondence. FINANCIAL STRINGENCY. (To The Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
Correspondence.?, FINANCIAL STRINGENCY. (To The Editor) Sir,-Public bodies, as also private individuals, -provide there is ample security, can always be accommodated with cash for their enterprises. In the case of the latter where, perhaps, their assets is only a hod, the gentle man behind the counter with a re presentative sign, sometimes mistaken for the shamrock, bluntly refuses a loan, although the owner of the triangular box mounted on a stick may convince the lender of paper shekels he must redeem on the fol lowing llonday morning since he has to work for a living. The hod car rier, undaunted, says all right, I'll get something else, and promptly brings back a hod of mud and dumps it on the counter. "'What'll ye lend me on that ?" says he. This is typical of the present tax ridden community. There is nothing much left to pledge but mud. The former public bodies, in cluding shire councils, are at their wits' end as to what to be up to next. The South riding, with enhanced value...

HOW LONG WE CAN LIVE WITHOUT FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
nOW LONG WE CAN LJW WITHOUT FOOD. Science "says that if he can get drinking water an ordinary man can exist for about thirty days without food. At the end of that time the machinery of the. body will not be ruined, and can be entirely strength ened back to its old standard by care ful feeding. About one-quarter of our body weight is fat, and it is mostly this fat which is absorbed as food during the period of starvation. We can absorb and burn up our muscles until 60 per cent. of their weight has gone. We can do the s:E;me with from 30 to 40 per cent. of our liver and di gestive organs and 20 per cent. of our lungs. Our hearts can lose 10 per cent. and our brains and nervous sys tem can lose 5 per cent. It will thus be seen that the more vital organs, brain, and heart, yield least of their valuable substance for the life of the body whiie the less valuable sub stances, fat, muscles, and so on, are ccnsumed first.

North Riding Finances. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 15 June 1923
North Riding Finance s. Where are the Northern riding rates, That were placed on the estimatesl The roads are all holes, And the bridges want doles, And that is a very sad fate. A grant of 150 was spoiled, Because a proposal to borrow was foiled, Just for another 75 'To keep the quarrying job, alive, And that made some folk boil. An overdraft stares us in the face, And some say it is quite a disgrace, With a half crown rate Paid right up to date, It does seem very bad taste. The. members from the Glen, Are very solid men, They tell us to borrow, Bat some cannot swallow, And think it rather thin. The ratepayers of our riding, Have so long been in riding, But now they all begin to see, That they must study £. s. d, And reckon up the finding. The people want to agitate, To see they get a better fate, If only to take advice at least, From those wise men from the East, And then stick to the estimates. For the sake of unanimity, Try and get some magnanimity, Get'a decent little loan, Make...
