ENTHUSIASM FOR RADIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 8 January 1914
ENTHUSIASM FOR RADIUM. Germany is stated to be in the throes of a craze over radium and mosothor. ium as a cure for cancer. Various State Governments, municipalities, universities, hospitals, and private philanthropists are competing to se cure supplies in as large quantities and as soon as possible. It is estimat ed that £125,000 has already been col lected for the purpose in various quar ters. The magnitude of these mea sures will be realised when it is re membered that the gross value of all the radiosactive substances sq far pro -s cceedin iuying the quantities con templated they will nearly effect a "corner" of the available supply. The four German factories which, it is said, are at present the only ones capable of producing mesothorium, state that deliveries cannot take place for over a year. Their entire production be tween now and December, 1914, amounting to six or seven grammes, was long since definitely disposed of. The Prussian Govorninent will 'rovide for £25,000 for p...
EVILS OF HURRIED LUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 8 January 1914
V'W( EVILS OF HUiRIED LUNCH. A warning against the growing prac tice among business men of hurrying through scanty, innutritious luncheons has been given by a London doctor of repute. "I had luncheon at a large city restaurant much frequented by business men," the doctor stated. "I spent 40 minutes in consuming half a dozen oysters, a grilled loin chop and potatoes, some Cheddar cheese, and a cup of coffee. During my meal 1 was struck by the rush with which my neighbours ate what seemed totally in adequate midday meals. One man's lunch consisted of a dozen oysters, three slices of brown bread and but ter, and a pear; time occupied in eat ing it, 14 minutes. A second man had a slice of melon, lobster mayonnaise, roll and butter, and coffee; time, 18 minutes. A third man had a cut from a joint, baked potatoes, cauliflower, and apple tart and cream; time, 11 minutes. The third man's apple tart and cream were placed oa the table before the joint course was finished 'to save time,' so th...

CORRESPONDENCE BANK STREET WEST. To the Editor. - Sir,-I should like to draw your at tention to the disgraceful state of Bank. street Vest, Ascot Vale. It` is so bad that no person will ride a bike on it. The State school abuts on it, and it ispainful to see the poor children coning out of school, the inany falls they have. The road.is all hills and hollows. Why, sir, the bases of the plugs, also the sewerage bases on the road stand up like foundations for a fountain, - being souni inches higher than the road. Now, it would be a great opportunity if the council would re-form the street and tar same, while the school is on holidy. The street is used as a playground, ilso as a'drill grBouid. I trust, sir, .you will be. pleased to .insert this, if it is only for the benefit of the school: children. --Yours, etc., r ILLIAM GIBSON. Bank street West, . .5th Jan.,:1914.
HABITS OF ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 8 January 1914
HABITS OF ANIMALS. A fly on a window-pane will crawl up to the top. fly back to the bottom, and crawl up again. This order is sel dom reversed. It is on record that a fly crawled up a window-pane 32 times, returning each t timhe to the same place. lens always scratch for food with the sun behind them, the reason being that the rays show up minute particles. A blind hen will pick up, irain.' and nld ne 1 u usually le on the left side. Dkgs lie with their forepaws to the fire. A mouse will ignore a food supply sufficient for a meal and run great risks to nibble at a large supply. Goldfish usually swim round a globe to the right. They can be taught to take a fly out of the hand in six weeks. Sheep spend more time grazing than do cattle and horses, and they will eat twelve hours out of the twenty-four. *

POTATO AND CHEESE POISONING [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 8 January 1914
POTATO AND CHEESE POISONING There seems nothing specific in poi soning by potato; the symptoms are those of infection by food by ordinary organisms. One interesting point is that it seems likely that potatoes only become infected after they are peeled. Mussel poisoning has some clinical symptoms peculiar to itself, and may Le due to the presence of some metal lic poison, although this must be rather rare. A toxic substance called mytilo toxin has been isolated from poisonous mussels, and it seems likely that such mussels have been infected by bacteria, but little is known of any special bac teria concerned in this condition, al though it is probable that the mussels become poisonous through contamina tion by sewage. Similarly, cheese poi soning, which has certain more or less specihc clinical manifestations, seems to be the result of the infection of cheese by some definite organism, but further investigation of this poinlt is necessary before any definite conclusion can be reached....

SIGNS OF EYE-STRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 8 January 1914
SIGNS OF EYESTRAIN. When a child begins tb screw up its eyes, to elevate and depress its eye brows, to wrinkle its forehead, to blink, to push forward its head when looking at things, then suspect eye - train. In an address before a gather ing of oculists an eminent surgeon said, the other day, the eyes should be sus pected "in all headaches which occur red regularly and got worse in the afternoon, which were increased by close work and relieved by rest and on holidays, or which occurred Obly dur ing certain occupations." Among the troubles caused by eye-strain, this au thority mentioned the indigestion that is associated with continued, applica tion to study or work, cases of dizzi ness and so-called bilious attacks. Eye strain is really a weariness of the many nerves that aspply the small muscles of the eyes. If there be any abnormal optical conditions, such as errors of refraction, found in myopia, or short sightedness, and hyperopia, or long sightedness, imperfect balance of the...
