ANIMALS AND SICKNESS. HOW THEY PRESFERVE THEIR HEALTH. Animals will do anything to keet themselves in perfect condition, and they have learned in the course -cf ages that cleanliness iis one of the conditions of . healthl. It is won derful what 'care -all creatures :: will take to keep themselves clean; anda bird's nest even when th2 parents are most busy feeding their raven ous young ones is usually beauti fully clean. The care they will take of their skins and coats, or in th case of lirds of their plumage, is wonderful. Many ages biefore mud-baths came into fashion among hunmans, the cura tive value of mud was known to many animals, and animals in tropi cal countries frequently 'take mud' I baths; indleed, wounded elephants alid other large quadrupeds will roll hemselves in the mud of a river. ante, and will fill up the wound witii mud if they possibly can, whil: woe:nded birds will sometimes als'i fill up a wound to prevent foreign matter getting into the wo:md. which they seem ...

A BUSH POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 17 January 1914
A BUSH POST OFFICE t You may know a good deal about Slei ter rates, though perhaps yon are not wll acquainted with a certain f ostal delivery little heard of in the British Isles. It is merely a New Zealand water race, an obedient ricer fashioned by the hands of b: shmcn sweeping along for twenty. six miles, now twinkling with light some srarkle in the sunlight, now whispering darkly, stealthily, myster. iously in the depths of the forest shades. 1 Six men stationed at intervals along the route guard the course. The end of each section is mar:ced by a grating,. which detains all the fo:sam and jetsam borne thus far along, every scrap of raper, every fragment of wood-anythin that i might be used for scrawlingg a mes sage upon, is carefully scritinisrd I by the race-keeper as it is stopprd at the gratings. For this is the popular method o; - commrni-aticn of the bush People along the line of waters. A shiq s hurriedly inscribed with a stub of t burnt stick has in the past related i so...

SIGHT-SEEING AT NEW YORK. (Concluded from last issue). [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 17 January 1914
SIGHT-SEEING AT NEW YORK. By THOS. A.CALLANL)ER, OF PR.HRAN. (Codncluied from last issue). IniNew York may be seen dozens of different styles of electridc trams, the horse and cable trams, right up to the modern torpedo (hobble skirt) and electric storage battery, the latest Edisonian invention. They do not give checks in the trams, as the fate is all the one price, 5 cents (21d) if only 100 yards. On paying the fare the- conductor pulls a lever, which moves a clock, and thus re gisters the payment for the'passenger to see. Another thing to see on Broadway is the automatic restaurant, where, on p'acing a nickel in the s'ot, a bowl of your fancy soup, sandwich of any kind, tea, coffee, cocoa, or any other liquid, or if you desire a dinner consisting of hot joint, &c., these can be obtained, but, of course, for more money being placed in the slot. I have seen simi.ar in Berlin, Cologne, Brussels and Paris not as elaborate as this automat in New York. Many people have doubted t...

THE WORK A WOU1AN WANTS. Any woman who ::an's a short cut to a beaitiful complexion, agile limbs, and graceful proportions, may find it by following the directions of Drs. Dudley Sargeant and Cnarles Greene. who assures us in a lecture that when woman does her own house work, with its manifold varieties of physical requirements, nearly every muscle of her body may be brought into action daily. Nothing is -bet ter for the develoiment of large muscles in the legs or for the re duction of fat than r Inning up and down stairs.

Fyffe and his offi cers into the chairs of the Prince George Lodge, L.O.I.V., took place in the Methodist school room,Chapel street, St. Kilda, the installing officer being Bro R. O. Snowball, ML.A., Grand Master of the institution. At a subsequent stage a social was held, when Bro. Snowball, in re sponding to the chief toast, made reference to the Home Rule question, saying that Home. Rule meant the break up of the British Empire, and that Orangemen in Victoria and Australia would be prepared to stand shoulder to shoulder with those of the old country for the mainte nance of their rights and liberties. He congratulated those councillors who had opposed the granting of a license to the Palais de Dance on the St. IKilda foreshore. He believed in reasonable amusement, but he very strongly objected to their public reserves being given up to purposes of promiscuous dancing. He was glad to know that the lodge had straighten...

Majority of 836. lThe election of a representative to represent the constituency of Prahran in!the Legislative Assembly of the State Parliament took place on Thursday. The day was fine and warm-quite a nice sort of day to enjoy a ride in a motor car to a poll ing booth.
