Bright Excursion Cancelled. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914

Bright Excursion Cancelled. Our Bright correspondent writes r —An important step was taken by a representative meeting of residents. regarding the schools excursion; •which was decided upon for Wed"7' nesday, Aug. 12, to Wangaratta Carnival. The chairman (Mr H. H. Manning) mentioned that the • Wangaratta people were at present engaged fighting tooth and nail to do the greatest damage to the dis . trict that was practicable, by their attitude towards dredging. Only last week, Hon J. Bowser and Mr Thomas Graham headed a deputa tion to do their best to down the in dustry; and the people of the dis trict could hardly be expected to patronise people who were trying to take their bread and butter out of their, mouths. Several others ! pre sent spoke in a similar strain, and It was unanimously agreed to in form the President of the Carnival, Mr F. C. Vallender, that, in view of the attitude of the Wangaratta people towards dredging, the meet ing decided to cancel all arrange- . ments for s...

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. A correspondent of "To-Day" tells th§-; following amusing s,i"pry pf. a Brit: ish.midshipman's, adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of -the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a rickshaw. There' was a keen 'breeze blowing, 'but it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's \y.hiskers by .reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if his face were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips: a. .-number one. Manila cheroot, of imposing proportions, which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that . juvenile naval offi cer's .glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ■ha!" a...

To the Gouty. For those who are liable to attacks of gout, it is an excellent rule to re duce the allowance of butcher's meat, especially beef, taking it no oftener than once a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes on very slowly, if at all, during the hours of sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type. .

The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914

The Ear. The human ear is a delicate piece of mechanism. That which we ordin arily' designate as the "ear," is, after all, only the mere outer porch of a series of winding passages which lead : from 'the world without to the world within. Certain of these passages are filled with liquid, besides -having mem branes stretched like parchment cur tains across the corridor at different points. When a sound-wave strikes these they are turned into vibrations and made to tremble like the head of a drum does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of these parchment-like curtains a chain of minute bones extends, which serves to tighten or relax the membranes and communicate vibrations to them. In the innermost place of all a row of w" ite threads, called nerves, stretch like the strings of a piano from the last point from which the tremblings reach, passing thence inward to the brain.

MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 25 June 1914

medical'mems. Coughs. Experience "has1 -shown that' there are two distinct kinds of coughs—one' proceeding from an affection of the lungs and air tubes, as in a simple cold, the other proceeding from effer vescence in the stomach. The lung cough is a symptom which necessar ily requires attention, lest serious con sequences ensue. The stomach cough ife a much more simple matter, and may easily be got rid of. It is caused ' by the effervescence of the food and drink which are put into the stomach. A knowledge of this fact ought" to" lead persons so affected to ponder a little on the nature of their ailment and the peculiarity of their digestive powers. Some stomachs agree best ' with alkalis, others'with acids; one person likes a bitter substance,' an other a substance which is sour. The person who desires a satisfactory ex planation of these circumstances will consult his own physician. Many stomach coughs arise from an undue love of sweets—sweet tea, sweet drinks, ■ sweet cake, swee...
