Hot Wax Cure. Dr Barfche de Sandfort, a French physician, lias just made an important communication to the Paris Academy of Medicine with regard to the cura tive properties of wax, or hard paraffin (says "Lloyd's Weekly"). Soft paraffin is vaseline-j liquid paraffin is oil. Both enjoy the con fidence of the medical profession and the public, comparatively recently liquid paraffin has attained to an enormous vogue as. a laxative. . After eight years' work on the sub jeot Dr Barthe de Sandfort in 1909 actually entered a large vat full of paraffin at a temperature, of consider ably over 120 deg. Fah. (50 deg. Centigrade). ' It is not many people who can endure a bath of llO deg.

EXPERIENCE v. GENERALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 June 1914
EXPERIENCE v. GENERALITIES. There aro no liars like statistics, it has been said, and our memory is al ways lying to us with more statistics of our past experience. All the thought of tho -world is full of them, for it is all based upon memories, and there is nothing to correct those but the quick ness of prosent experience. That is what Walt Whitman meant when ho said that to look with the eye confounds tho wisdom of ages. It is not that each one of us now is wiser than any wise man of tho past; but that all wis dom has tho past for its material, and can therefore bo oorrectod by an ex perience of tho moment. We need not be wise in our own conceit, but wo must not allow tho wisdom of others to dull the freshness of our own exp&lt;"" ience. What some groat man ma.;is out of his memories may be better thai, what we make out of our own; but r must not take the place fir us . o what happens to ourselves..

WHY PILLOWS ARE HARMFUL. "You ore only one out of millions," Qid a West find physician to me (mites a contributor to a London paper) when I complained that my Bight s sleep seldom proved completely resotrative. "Very few people kuow how to sleep properly. Almost every one makes one misiuko or anolher wiih regard to bed, bedclothes, or pillows, and some ot these mistakes have seri ous consequences. Take the old-iush oind bolster surmounted by a pillow, or what ia almost as bod, one pillow on top of another. Some people I kuow oso even three pillows.

No More Indigestion. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 9 June 1914
No More Indigestion. WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. It. scorns reasonable to suppose that in n short time thero will be no more indigostion or dyspepsia. The okl stylo " digestives'' such as bismuth, popsine, charcoal, soda, etc., which after all are only temporary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in favor of a simple antacid, known to chemists as BISUUATED magnesia, with the result that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that, according to available statistics, over ninety per cent, of all stomach troubles aro due to acidity. Bisur.ited magnesia may readily be obtained from any chemist at a small cost, a"d half-a-teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals immediately neutralise all harmful ncids in the stomaoh, prevent fermen tation, and thus rendor the food easy of digestion.
