SYDNEY'S SINFUL. SUNDAY.

FOODS OF THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914

FOODS OF THE MIND., We are conscious that the food of the body influences the health of the mind, as when we say o£ some un suitable or indigestible thing, "it has made me dull of mind, it lias madp me sad, it has made me irritable, or lias in some other way affected my equanimity." But we do not recog nise with like readiness and in the same way the effect of the foods of the mind oil the mind and its health; nor Is this remarltablo, for the body feeds perceptibly, and by one stom ach nlone, while the mind feeds im perceptibly iby five stomachs, by every sense, which is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re ceives its ailment, bo that good or bud, and from and by which it is re newed and from day to day sustained. These foods of the mind entering tliq mental organisation, the camera nef fosa, largely, if not altogether, mould that organisation into set form, according to its quality for moulding.

This was the Qrst time in Melbourne that the new dyed wigs have 1'een sce.i in any numbers, and we have not yet Quite decided whether we like them or not. uf course, we pre accus tomed to the coiffure wliiclf is so deep orange in hue. that it is prac tically majenta. Wo have had a num ber of these of late yearB, but the new tones are quite a novelty. I can not'say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certainh* more becoming than the light saxe tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective; but on the whole these colored wigs can not be %'oted a success. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair. .1 is but a freak fashio...
