But you will realise thaia it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking iii p roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly stop talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a great start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. .It isalso a very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certaini to ejclairi, "Who is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you-don't.you re cognise it?" and then you rcalise how deaf to your dwn voice you have been for many years You never iee your own face ei ther, except-in a photoiraph ,aisd that is why a photograph is 'always some th...

Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me of one thing." "What's' that?" "That there are mighty feit dhys in the year on which a man does'any thing really worth recording."

To the Gouty. For those who are liable to afttacks 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.

The mansion was gay with the flowers of tile season-roses, of course, mixed with innumerable tall white lilies, which were in the per fection of their bloom. The best flor ists, the best decorators had been all day at Hiansell House, and, under the directions of the Duchess of Tewkes bury, had made such a marked change in its appearance that Sheila felt she would scarcely know it.

The Ear. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 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 wh~h 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 noints. Wrhen a sound-wave strikes these they are turned into vibrations and mnade to tremble like the head of a drum does wTen 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] — Shepparton Advertiser — 4 June 1914
.:'MEDICAL MEMS. "" S Cdughs. Experience has 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 ensie. The stomach cough is 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 othler 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 ten, sweet drinks, s eet cake, sweet cu...
