Foiled Again. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914

Foiled Again. Papa Bending keeps a pretty sharp eye on his daughter Mary, and many a would-be lover lias taken a walk for a few minutes' conversation witli the hard-hearted parent. "You seem like a nice young man, and perhaps you are in love with Mary?" "Yes, I am," was the honest reply. "Haven't said anything to her yet, have you?" continued Papa Bending. "Well, no; but I think she recipro cates my affection." "Does, eh? Well, let me tell you something. Her mother died a luna tic, and there's no doubt that Mary has inherited her insanity." ' "I'm willing to take the chances," replied the lover. "Yes; but, you see, Mary has a terrible temper. She has twice drawn a knife on me with intent to commit murder." "I'm used to that—got a sister just like her," was the answer. "And you should know that I have sworn a solemn oath not to give Mfrj a penny of my property," con tinued the father. "Well, I'd rather start poor and build up. There's more romance in it, Mr. Bending," continued the l...

0 ~~ Mr Billson on the Dredging Question. Even 'the reported portions of Hon.; A. A. Billson's speech on the dredging question have (writes our Bright. correspondent) called forth i • showers of commendation from those capable of expressing an opinion on the subject.' . Of course, it goes without saying that Mr Billson was not fully reported by either of the Melbourne dailies, especially by one, but from a gentleman who was' pre sent at the sitting I learn that the' member for the Ovens, made really I the speech of his life. After reading extracts from the " Age"- and " Reader" newspapers—statements that have gone abroad to the people —Mr Billson produced a declara . tion made by Mrs Walden—regard ing whose property such statements ■ were^—denying point blank the va rious articles which Mr Billson quoted. The reading of the decla ration, caused somewhat of a sensa tion amongst many members who had before .believed all they had read about the jstalwart sons being brought up .on a few...

TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914

, TO HIDE. BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. A method of sewing hairs in the human . scalp in cases of partial--or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szekely at the hospital of Saint Ste phane at Budapest. The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient, says "The Times," has been as many as 50,000. One hundred hairs'are drawn through punctures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five-hundredth of an inch in diameter, and fine, long hairs from a woman's head are at tached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "an chor," and after sterilisation is intro duced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position. It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced into the scalp within three quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely has designed a special...

MEDICAL MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 16 July 1914

MEDICAL MEMS. In many cases pain in the feet is owing to tlie presence of corns, bun ions, or chilblains. But there are more obscure affections that cause pain in walking. Two of the most common are flatfoot, and the opposite condi tion—an overhigh arch. , When the arch is too high the weight of the body is not properly dis tributed, but falls on the heel and the ball of the foot. The pain is especial ly severe in tb.e bail of the foot. In flatfoot the pain is most severe in the early stages, wheu the fibrous sheet that stretches between the ball of the foot and the heel has to do all the work of keeping the foot in shape, since the ligaments that are meant to support the arch are already weaken ed and elongated. After this fibrous structure—the plantar fascia it is called—has yielded, and the flatfoot is fully established, the pain is much less acute. - When iboth hee-'s are painful it usu ally means^ either that flatfoot is be ginning or that the rheumatic or gouty tendency is dec...
