Army ond Navy Nurses. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 April 1898

Army ond Navy Nurses. (By Lady Cook, nee Tennessee Claflin). The distinguishing virtue of this age is its humanity Proofs of this abound in every direction. Even dumb creatures receive their full share of help and sympathy. Yet a great deal more might be done to ameliorate human suffering through a better organisation of the means at hand. This is em phatically the case as regards the nurs ing of the sick and wounded in time of war, for this is more or less left to chance. We rely on volunteers, who may be few or many, fit or unfit, but who,-because they are women, are supposed to: be naturally capable of caring for the sick and wounded. Florence Nightingale, however, whose experience was second to none, writes :— • j .11 It has been said and written scores ofuimes;that: every woman makes a good'nurse. I believe, on the con trary, that the very . elements ot nurs ing'are all:but.unknown." . M'-Again she says It seems a com monly;received'idea-among men, and :evensamong'. women ^them...

Theatrical Novelties. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 April 1898

Theatrical Novelties. : . | Involuntary answers have often, teen given by novices powerfully affectedly; the magic of a scene. One actor, as Oatesby, rushed in at once, saying, "Sly lord, the Duke of Buckingham's taken;" suddenly adding in liis fury, " and they've cut off his head !" whereupon the irate tragedian, annoyed at having liis grand speech, "Off with his head,", forestalled, roared in reply,~ "Then, damn you, go and stick 'It on again !" Still worse was the realism ; of another novice, who, when Macbeth strode down towards liim, and seizing his arm, whispered: "There's Wood upon thy face," quite forgot his part, and, misled! by the tragedian's natural tones, re plied, "'Is there, by God,":and finding by a touch that liis forehead, was stained with rosepinlc added. ."Then the properly man's served me a trick." -In minor theatres and among strolling players tliere is always a wider field for odd'blunders.and mischances.

Who Supports the Hospitals. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 6 April 1898

Who Supports the Hospitals. Careful analysis of the subscription' lists of various charitable institutions, shows, it is said, that .they are all supported by about'400 persons", only. Thi's means that only the given number of names is to be. found in these lists. They necessarily take no ac count of the anonymous'"donations'of sums under ^r, or of the hospital Sunday. Still, every year it is being found more difficult to raise the funds to keep these institutions going, and, it there are many more occurrences of the Petrie infant, it will still, be more so. There are far too many young doctors in the hospitals who are there simply to gain experience. There are others who seem to be consumed by the desire to demonstrate the efficacy of this or that mode of treatment with which their name is associated, and yet others who, judging by their own admissions, do not scruple to experi ment very Ireely on the patients.

How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 6 April 1898

How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run' an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives you and vour town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore ,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town —give it all your printing. Recontly <10,000 tins of salmon were eold at auction consumption. The whole cons...
