Irregularity of Meals. CAUSE OF INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

Irregularity of Meals. - CAUSE OF INDIGESTION. By D. II. Kress, M.D. One cause of dyspepsia is irregular ity respecting tlie time of meals. The lmman system seems to form habits, and to be in a great degree dependent upon tlio performance of its functions in accordance with the habits formed. In respect to digestion this is especial ly observable. If a meal is taken at a regular hour the stomach becomes ae eustftmed to receiving food at that hour, and is prepared for it. If meals are eaten irregularly the stomach is taken by surprise, so to speak, and is never in a proper state of readiness for the prompt and perfect perform ance of its work. Tho habit which many professional and business men have nf allowing their business to in tnido upon their meal hours, frequent ly either wholly depriving them of a meal or obliging them to take it an hour or two later than usual, ultimate ly undermines the best digestion. The hour for meals should be considered a sacred one, not to be intruded ...

DEFYING THE DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

DEFYING THE DOCTORS. Doctors may err, even in tlie still ness of tlie sick room. How much more, then, are they lilcely to make mistakes in the unroar of the battle field. That this is so is shown by the experience of the famous Russian General Dragomiroft', who once nar rowly escaped losing" both legs. lie commanded a division during the Tlusso-Turltisli War, and fell in the fighting at the Shipka Pass, wounded in several places. He was carried un conscious to a field hospital, and came to himself just as the doctors were about to amputate both legs. Dragomiroff said he would rather take his chance of dying, but they per sisted. Then ho drew a revolver and swore he would blow out the brains of the first man who tried to lise a lancet on him. He had his way, but for oyer a week he held that revolver tightly clenched in his hand, fearing that the surgeons would yet play a tricl: on him. At night lie made bis servant stand on guard armed with a rifle. He recovered after a few weeks' il...

DANGER IN SHAKING HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

' DANGER IN SHAKING HANDS. That there is danger of infection from shaking hands is recognised by the medical profession, and to some extent by the public. In China people do not shake hands with each other, but perform the ceremony by shak ing hands with themselves, and un 1 doubtedly this custom arose from hy gienic reason's. What is not real ised, however, is that it is not the mere contact of the hand that is dan gerous, but the finger-nails deposits. The finger-nail offers a place where all sorts of matter collect, and a slight scratch by the nail transfers any infectious matter most effectual ly. Moreover, this is not confined to people o£ careless personal habits, for it has been found that the usual toilet operations with soap, hot water, and clean towels do not re move the dangerous matter, accord ing to a writer in "The Journal of the American Medical Association," when accompanied by vigorous ap plication of a nail-brush. The only safeguard seems the trimming of the nails ...

A New Idea in Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

A New Idea in Dress. THAT bright and up-to date magazine '.Everylady's Journal'1-has discovered yet another form of war time economy in the adoption of a standardised dress for women This does not mean that all women are to be dressed alike in a sort of cut lo-measure uniform, but that a definite limit is to be set 10 the whims of fashion, and that certain lines of style and shape be universally adopted- That this would mean an immense amount of saving in time and money without in the least interfering with the charm and grace of woman's appearance, or inflicting any hardship on the manufacturers, is claimed by the writer. Various views on this subject are ex pressed by such notable people as Mrs William Hughes, the Prime Minister's wife (of whom a charming photograph with her baby is presented), Miss Minnie Love, the Musical Comedy actress, Madame Melba, and a noted women's tailor. The opinions of these contri butors make entertaining and useful read ing. These are but samples of a...

Potato Diseases. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

Potato Diseases. INDICATIONS point to the prevalence of potato diseases this season. In the event of the growing period being warm and moist, blight is likely to cause con 'Biderable damage and loss. While this disease connot be altogether prevented, it can be controlled. Growers "forewarned are forearmed," and all should be prepared to combat it immediately it makes its appearance. It is even better to take preventive measures before the crops ara attacked if the climatic conditions are such that there is the danger of the fungus growing and spreading. The presence of blight may be detected by brown spots making their appearance on the leaves of the plants. If these are surrounded by mould on the under sur face, and the leaves and stems blacken and decay the fungus is probably that of Irish blight. The loaves frequently turn brown and shrivel up. and as the fungus spreads rapidly the tissue of the whole leaf is soon destroyed'. An offensive odour is giv<m off from a badl...

Home Reefs Gold Mining Company. FUTURE PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916

Home Reefs Cold Mining Company. FUTURE PROSPECTS. rN will be remembered that in May of the present year the above company, after much battling, was formed, and the mine taken over from the syndicate on certain conditions. At the lime it was considered by many that the capital of the company was too small, and barely sufficient for the work undertaken. The promoters also realised this, too, but pointed out that in fixing the capital at the amount stated, the abnormal times were largely taken into consideration, and it was hoped that the mine would be placed on a paying basis even on the limited scale laid down. The whole of the capital was subscribed for, and the fact that the bulk of it came from local investors and business people was ample evidence that those best in position to know had faith in the venture. We have lime and again pointed out the possibilities of the Home and adjacent lines of reefs as pros pecting propositions. There is nothing better in the Ovens Valley, but, l...
