THE EAR THE SEAT OF SEA SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 February 1914

THE EAR THE SEAT OF SE&1 SICKNESS. Dr. Julius Auerbach, who has spDe nine moiths at the University of Vii enna, has repeated his beliei that sea sickness is not due to the stomach, but to the irritation of the semicircular canal of 'he inner ear. This is the theory that has beef known for some time to sp-~ialists! and Dr. Auerbach' believes that Prof'! Dalikinik, of the University of Vi1. enna, has proved it. The doetor says that the fenetioff of the semi circular canals is to maimntain the equilibrium. When they are irritated their owners have all the symptomfl of sea sickness. The doctors of Vi enna found by experimenting that i child 7n whose ears the canals had been destroyed: could not be made seasick, and that animals without the ear canals were unaffected by sea sickness. Dieting before a voyage would not prevent sea sickness, there. fore. The doctor said no remedy had 1 been found.

Sunday Corner. Use Your One Talent. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 7 February 1914

Sunday Corner. Use Your One Talent. Use your one talent for God's glory; and he will give you more to use. Do the little duties faithfully, and you will grow in skill and ability and be able for greater. No duties are small or unimportant. There are many who grow discour agedl because- they are kept all their life at little tasks. Men praise grand and heroic deeds, and little little notice is taken of the common heroisms .of daily duty. But you remember what one said-that if God sent two angels to earth, one to rule an empire and the other to clean: a street, they would each regard their employment as equally distinguished. True faithfulness regards nothing as small or unim, ortant.
