WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

•WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. By a Hospital Nurse. .Ordinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means the most restful positions you can adopt, tor, though they ease certain parts of the body, they leave others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet upsas high as they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet an the table or the mantelpiece, but it is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered, rfis patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what i wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not exactly p...

FIGHTING FOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

FIGHTING FOGS. '""•ffiat London's ' "particular" -=-"the yellow, pea-soup' "atmosphere which sometimes settles over the Metropolis and materially adds to doctors' bank ing accounts—may be abolished is the hope held out by a French scient ist, M. Onderio, the head of the Lyons Observatory, whose novel rem edy is to be put to the test at Lyons. The French city suffers almost as much from fogs as London, and M. Onderio has formed the theory that these fogs .are due to the enormous evaporation from the Rivers Rhone and'-'Saone, as they flow, through that city. This theory is shared by other scientists, who attribute London fog& to'the vapor arising from the Thame3, as well as to the excessive siroke. Whereas other scientists, however, have usually proposed to banish fogs by attacking them when they have once been formed in the air, M. On derio proposes to prevent their forma tion by a very simple plan. His idea is to suppress ^!e rising of the water vapor by covering the surface...

IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

IN. LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. "I fell in love with 'Monna Lisa.' " That was the declaration'of Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he had taken it frcm the Louvre he said that he went home, locked himself in his room, and stood en tranced before it, bewitched by the smile of La Gioconda. There were times, he said, when he felt that he •must destroy the picture or he would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mirers. One of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the se ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often used to have letters addressed to "The original of "Monna Lisa'!" Far-more people than Vineenzo Per ugia have fallen 'madly in love with well-known pictures. It wa-s J^illais's picture "Ophelia," ...

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked up to the end of his long life. xiiS' works were many, but the most notable was his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and. war," and,, indeed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-fiv years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V„ Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' .Var, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing migh...

The Hypothetical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock, "let me ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and. radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, whoso cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rose petal—a young woman whose culture and charm easily placed her immea surably above all other women in the world—and he were to ask this young woman if she would " "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms. "Yes!" Regarding unconscious humor in the pulpit, intimations of pastoral visitation are a frequent pitfall to ministers attempting to define expli citly the district set apart for the hon or of a call.

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. Hugh left Dover on his yacht, the Christabel, upon the evening of it glorious day of June; he was off Lis bon three days afterwards, and Mat Michel was trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with the exception of a dozen or movo upon the. coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious days Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don ald, he would never let the word pass his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest at every turn, he became a veritable terror to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arch diaconal functions, insisted upon ac companying his "poor young friend," and of doing ample justice to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist in practice, though in precept he frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roses into hell," as Mat said with the breezy candor of his race....

Margarine and Butter. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

Margarine and Butter. A grave blow will be struck at the dairying industry of Victoria if the Federal Food Standards Com mittee should persist in its iuteotiou to allow the use of coloring matter ia margarine says tlie "Age." The edible fat, made from various animal and vegetable substances, which in England takes the place of butter ou the breakfast tables of the poor, is manufactured iu large quantities in this State for export, and also for various commercial purposes, including the preparation of pastry, in the making of which margarine has practically ousted second quality, butler. Hitherto margarine has not been a dangerous rival of butter for domestic use, because the law has compelled its sale in natural color, which partakes so much of the appearauce- of lard that only a strong minded landlady would impose it on the boarding house menu. Restrictive legisla tion regarding margarine has existed iu all the Australian States and New Zealand, while in Canada protection in rural ...

Sporting. FOOTBALL. ROCHESTER v ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914

Sporting. FOOTBALL. ROCHESTER v ECHUCA. On Wednesday afternoon the first match of the season took place on the Recreation reserve between a team from the Echuca junior association and a junior Rochester team. The weather was pleasant, and there was no wind to influence the game. There was a good gathering, who watched proceed ings with interest. The game was friendly and efijovable, though not conspicuous for its brilliant fea tures. This was Rochester's first outing this year, though the Echuca team had a previous brush or two to knock off the cobwebs. The ground was hard, as more than one player found to his cost. One player on the local side, with more color than that on his uniform, sat down with exceeding emphasis, but forgot his woes in the contem plation of the rueful plight of his antagonist, at whom he laughed cotisumedly. The visitors were captained by M'Leod, and the locals by Freeman, while Mills acted as central umpire. Play did not commence till 1.20, as the goods trai...

Football Mems. ^By'"For ward.") As I anticipated, the motion to exclude Rochester from the ranks of the G.V.D F.A. was defeated, and it seems hard to realise that any other fate^ could have befallen it seeing that Rochester had done nothing during last season to jus tify the club's exclusion. However, "all's well that ends well," and I am sure that there will be no feeling over the matter as-far as Rochester is concerned, ...Of course Mr D. C. Morrisou Mvas1' re.-elected" president. " That goes without saying. I think I aui correct in stating that the position is Mr Morrison's as long as he de sires to hold it, and delegates hope that it will be for many a season to come.
