KILLED BY FALLING CEILING. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 19 March 1915
KILLED BY FALLING CEILING. Some little time ago an account of the death of a young baby three years old appeared in an. American contem porary. The circumstances were re markable. It seems that "whilst play ing in a room with a plaster ceiling, the celling fell, and striking the child killed it. Such an accident, though fortunately rare, is within the range of happening to any of us, and while it may be that fatal results do not en sue, they will be an unpleasant enough. To prevent auch a possibility, the mod el metal ceiling, as made by Messrs. Wunderlich, Limited, of Sydney, seems to be the natural step. This celling may be readily fixed in posi tion over a cracked or damaged plas ter coigns, nnd tiiUj p the pos sibility of It falling. In addition to being absolutely safe for all time, the Wunderlich Metal Ceiling is highly de corative and beautiful in appearance. It is a constant source of pleasure and delight in the home-an Austra lian production well worthy of Austra lian use.<...

Deaths in Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 19 March 1915
Deaths in Egypt. Some concern has been expressed at the number of deaths from pneumonia reported amongst members of the Australian Expeditionary Force. While the utmost sympathy is extended to the relatives of those who have suc cumbed, there is at present no occa sion to fear that the disease is assum ing undue proportions, considering the circumstances iu which the. men ^re placed. Pneumonia is one of the most fatal diseases known, and Sir William Osier has suggested that it merits the phrase "captain of the men of death," which was once applied by John Bunyau to consumption. In ordinary hospital practice the mortal ity may be anything between 15 to 30 per dent, and in rough and more or less unhygienic surroundings, such as camps and mining compounds, it has reached 60 per cent. It is a particu larly fatal affection among the native workmen In South Africa , and was al so a formidable problem in Panama. It Is now known to depend upon a par ticular organism, the attack of which is ...
