Nightmare. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
Nightmare. Nightmare, according to one theory, is due to a suspension o£ power in the muscles o£ inspiration. The weight, the want of breathing, and the sense of suffocation seem to prove this; and a still greater proof is that, after the sufferer can speak only one syl lable, the paroxysm is at an end. The word cannot bo spoken without breath -breath cannot come out of the lungs until it is brought in, nor brought in without the action of the muscles of the breaat and ribs. Nothing can be more simple than the cause; it is tho temporary paralysis of the pector al muscles, through tho medium of the nerves which supply them with feoliug.

MEDICAL MEMS. Cathing Cold. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914
MEDICAL MEMS. Cathing Cold. You should never surrender to tlio habit ot "catching cold." The habit often yields with surprising sudden ness, for it is quite unable to get the better of those who are in really good health. To fight a cold after you have caught it is a good thing-you can scarcely do less; but it Is much bel ter to make yourself so formidable that it will not dare to attack you. In carrying 011 the battle you may have to form a complete set of new habits and break off many cherished old ones. The place to begin is in the bedroom at night. If you sleep with your window shut you simply deliver yourself, bound band and foot, to your enemy. If you open it two or three inches you are a little better off, but not much. Insist upon sleeping in the open air as far as possible. If there is such a thing as a specific against colds it is to be found in the sleeping porch or tho open bedroom. Next to that comes the cold sponge bath in the morning. If tho victim of colds is a young...
