The Serious Illness of Mr. Dan Barry. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 19 April 1898
The Serious Illness of Mr. Dan Barry. There is no man whom the theatrical and theatre going public of Australasia are better acquainted than Mr. Dan Barry, the popular actor manager of the Alexandria Theatre, Melbourne. Recently one of our representatives paid a visit to him at his office, nnd he courteously granted a request tor a tew minutes conversation. 'My life has been a varied one,' Baid Mr. Barry, 'and there are but few cities and towns in Australia I have not visited. A theatrical manager Iras so much to do mentally, and as a result I commenced to feel tho strain some two years ago. Frequently I felt, mentally and physically, quite exhausted. I was also affected with' neuralgia in my head, which often seriously interfered with my duties. At night my sleep was restless and of no recuperative benefit, and my illness commenced to toll on rno seriously that I consulted a medical man. Ho told me that my system had run down, and that I wanted a tonic. He gave mo some pretty expen...

Municipal Tenders. The question whothor tonders for municipal contracts should bo opouod and decided in public, or in committoo with eloped doors, is ono about which considorablo difforonco of opinion prevails. Tho ordinary practico is to considor them in comimttoo. iinci fit a recant meeting ot tho Newton Counc 1 tho matter was dobated at groat longth. Thoso who contended for tho private consideration of tho tondors justified that courso by jaying that it gived thom a froor hand, and they could discuss tho qualification of tondorors without any fear of boiug suod for llbol for any remarks tlioj- might fool it thnir duty to mako, and it was pointod out that on ono occasion, whon tho tondors wcro oponod in public, every alderman feared to opon his mouth, and tho result was tho acceptance of a tender which proved most unsntisfnetory. On the other hand it was urged that tho absonco of publicity caused a good deul of suspicion to bo ontortaiucd, and that opon consideration of tondors wa...

HIS GHOSTLY VISITANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
HIS GHOSTLY VISITANT. ' Who's there ?' shouted the master of the house the other night as ho thought ho heard somebody in his bedroom. There was no answer, and the queer noise stopped. ' Anybody thero ?' No anBwer. 4 It must have been a spirit,1 he said *-^» Viimaolf. ' Tt mnafc bft n mfidinm. T will try.' (Aloud.) ' If there is a spirit in the room, it will signify the same by saying ay — no, that's not what I. mean. If therb is a spirit in the room, it will' please rap throe times.' Three very distinct raps were given in the direction of the parloar. ' Is it the spirit of my sister ?' No answer. ' Is it the spirit of my mothor ?' Three very distinct raps. 4 Aro you happy ?'

For the Maddening Mosquito. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
For the Maddening Moscmito. The following remedy will prove effica cious against the annoying mosquito : — Take some powdered pyrethrum (obtain able of most chemists), moisten and mix into a paste, mould the stuff into conical lumps as big as chocolate drops, and point, such a cone will smoulder slowly and send up a thin column of pungent smoke, not hurtful to man, but stupefying to mosquitoes. In actual experience two or three such cones burned during the course of an evening have given much relief from mosquitoes in sitting-rooms. Ichthyol is the best stuff with which to paint any claiss of insect bites.
Do You Eat Apples? [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
Do You Eat Apples ? A celebrated beauty whose soft and delicate complexion was considered one of her principal charms, used to declare that she owed the purity and- freshness of her skin to her fondness for apples. She never had recourse to medicines, but invariably ate three large apples just would throw up their hands in horror at the visions of nightmare and dyspepsia conjured up in their minds at the mere idia of such a thing ; and yet, as a matter of fact, most medical authorities are now agreed that ripo and juicy apples eaten just before going to bed will not harm the most delicate ayatem, and are the very best means of promoting sound and healthy sleep, stimulating the action of the liver, and disinfecting the mouth.
Milk v. Beer. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
Milk V. Beer. ' A tumblerful of scalded milk, as hot as it can be sipped,' is the invariable prescription of an ominenfc physician for the overworked woman who comes to him in search of some satisfactory sub stitute for the glass of beer without which, so many people declare, they could not manage to get through the day. Hot milk is the most wholesome of stimulants. If you are tired out, bodily and mentally, its reviving influence is almost instantaneous, and far more en during than that of any alcoholic stimu lants. Beer, the doctor tells 'us, is simply exhilarating for tho moment, while, as a matter of fact, a quart of it contains less real strongth and nourish ment than a slice of bread.
How to Drink Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
How to Drink Water. The effects produced by tho drinking of water vary with tho manner in which it is drunk.

Sipped water is a powerful stimulant to tlie circulation — a thing which ordin ary drinking is not. During tho act of sipping, the action of tho nerve which slows tho beats of tho heart is abolishod, and, as a consequence, that organ con tracts much moro rapidly, the pulse boats more quickly, and the circulation in various parts of the body is increased. In addition to this, wo also find that tho pressure under which the bile is socroted ia raiaod by tho sipping of fluid.

Supreme Court. FIRST DAY— WEDNESDAY. Advocate Libel Action. For some time past it has been vaguely known that an action for libel had been taken againstthe Advocate. Excopt among those who had ob tained private information of tho grounds of the action very little was known as to the grounds of action. In most libel actions the alleged libol is known to most readers of the publication in which it appeared, but in this instance the al ieged libel was such an obscure one that there was no public recognition of it. As the date set down for tho hearing of the case approached inr torest in it increased, and a largo number of witnesses wore subpeonaed.

Hot Sorry Cheated Phil, A SHORT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 April 1898
How Eorry Cheated PMl. A SHORT STORY. NORRY CALLINAN was certainly dying, there could be no doubt of , that. Hadn't Dr. Barry said so, as well as Father Dan ? Biddy Kenny, who had attended more wakes than any other ?woman in Westown, quite agreed with their verdict, and now both priest and doctor-had gono, leaving her in attend ance. Silonca abaoluto and unbroken reigned in the dingy upper chamber ac Callinnn's Hotel (thero ore no ?;w?.s to bfi found in Ireland), where the old woman lay, quietly waiting for tho end, her thoughts busy with tho pnst. Fifteen years it was, last Shrovo, since sho had married handsome Phil Dohnrty, endowing him botli with her hand and tho 'hotel,' but Norry Calliniui sho still remained to friends and neighbours. In the 'west' a woman is only called by her married name on state and ceromonial occasions ; after, maybe, half a contury the old name still comes 'handiest to the lips ' of those who knew her in youth. Norry was slowly revolving the uneventful s...

MEASURING THE BABY.
