THE SLAV AND THE BRITON. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 April 1915
THE SLAV AND THE BRITON. Mr. II. G. Wells, tho novelist, who has recently returned from a brief so journ in Russia, was much imprcssod by the.fact tliat there is much physical resemblance between Englishmen and Russians. "So far as the looks of things go," he is reported to have said, ".tho liko 11 ess surprises me. Russians certainly look mora like Englishment than any other people I have been among. They not' only look liko Englishmen, but they niovo like Englishmen; they hold their hands and arms and sit in, chair3 liko Englishmen, and their disposition in costume is English. "And the Russian women are Eng lish, too, with a kind of natural fresh cess and an inattention to smartness that contrast vividly with the Preach or American women. They are far more ; English than tho Americans in style, .p.nri-intfiv.amt-Jntnimf.inn Ynii_cau. tell whether people talking in the next room aro English or American, but Hot whe ther they are English or Bnssiat."

THE USE OF ALUMINIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 April 1915
THE USE 'OF ALUMINIUM. Mr. II. X. Jlunro recently gave to ' the Junior Jnstitution of Engineers I some interesting notes on-the important ' subject of aluminium. He said the commercial possibilities: of aluminium wcro founded in 1SS7, when Hall, in America;. andi.Hcroiilt; in France, pro duced the metal by electrical means. Previous to that date,'however, inves tigation had proved-that the motal could bo easily produced, but methods wero too costly^foi1", Qrtlinary commer cial productions." ' As- illustrating the ..rapid- develojjmcnt'-of the-p?oductiou, of aluminium, tho price per ton in XSS9 was £3,2oG, in 1S91 it was £S12, and it has materially decreased until now the prico is in the neighbourhood of £S0 per toil. Aluminium being ono of the lightest of metals, weighing 160.1G71b. per cubic foot, it is greatly in demand where light weight is of importance. It is very malleablo and ductile, does not tarnish or rust, and is not affected by the action of water. It was first used for ...
DECAYED TEETH. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 April 1915
DECAYED TEETH. Just what effect upon tho stomach is produced by tho constant swallowing of bacteria and pus from diseased teeth mingled with decomposing particles of food, we are unable to determine, but it is reasonable to suppose that gastric disturbances are greatly aggravated, if not induced, by so doing. In every community there are those who are en thusiasts on the subject of puro air and wholesome food, but. whoso mouths arc in such a neglected condition that the air which passes through them is al most as polluted as that of a crowded tenement, and every mouthful of food swallowed carries with it into the sto mach millions of bacteria. The almost entiro futility of sterilising articlea of diet for patients in whose mouths ao sccsses exist, or whoso teeth are cover ed with tartar mixed with mucus and I food in a stato of decomposition, need J hardly bo mentioned. ?
MAKING BANDAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 April 1915
MAKING BANDAGES. The following directions for making bandages are timely and useful. For the many tailed bandage four strands Df unbleached calico are necessary, ?which should be five inches in width, and fifty-four inches in length. The ccntres of these are laid one upon the other and stitched firmly at both edges for a distance of about twelve inches. Tho stitching may bo in herring bon ing, feather stitching, or neat running, but it must be very firm. There are many slight differences in the make of these bandages. At some hospitals they are laid one above each other so that each one-half overlaps the lower one. Thoso strands aro laid to cover about one-third of each other. The two narrow strips whieh aro sewn to the upper edge of tho bandage aro thirty-six inches in length and aro used to go over the shoulders, being finally pinned to the body bandage to keep it in place. When finished the bandage should bo laid on a tablo and all the strands on ono sido put into position and th...

THE FEET IN SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 6 April 1915
J THE FEET IN SUMMER- I During tho hot weather many people complain of some form of foot trouble. Women are perhaps more affected than men, for one reason becauso they too ofton wear unsuitable shoes, too narrow, too thin in the sole,. too high in the I heel, and also for the reason that their I occupations lceep- them standing about | rather than actually walking. The first stop towards tho relief of aching feet is to have shoes or boots that fit properly; they should not be too thin, as every stone makes itself felt j through a very light sole. To take off tho shoes and put on very easy slippers at convenient times (luring the day will bo found to give comfort. A change of stockings, too, shoiild be made daily, two pairs being kept in wear at once. After a long walk, b&lt;tthe tho feet in hot water, then dry aud rub in some eau de Cologne. If the feet were bath ed every morning or night in hot water thero would be fewer corns and other troubles. Bathing in tepid water con ...
