SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 14 August 1914
SLEEP-ITS VALUE. Sleep, nature's most potent medi cine! How it brings peace to tlie i troubled, rest to the weary, and roses to the cheeks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till the morrow. But sometimes the moment the head readies the pillow seems to be the signal for each individual worry and care to present itself like an aveng ing angel. These mighty companions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-hand with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, j and dark circles under the eyes that speak more plainly than words. When the system is depleted the . physician prescribes a tonic which prevents the further wasting of tis sues, and creates an appetite, .which is the foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and fill us with vim for future exertions. As there is no ironclad rule governing the amount of food require...

Possessed ot the spirit of adventure, and an idea to impose upon tlio credi bility of tiie world, Miss Ellie Follows, a well-known resident of Perth, de cided to masquerade as a man. The blood of tho mummer must have been running deep in the veins of Miss Pel lows, for her subsequent disguise, and her perfect imitation of a raw boy, deceived ever her most intimate lrieuds. She told her people that she was about to take a holiday in Melbourne, and she accepted a positiou as lift boy at the Palace Hotel, Perth.
