CELEBRITIES AND SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 July 1918

GELEBRITIES AND SLEEP. It is curious to reflect that the saf ety of the Empire hinges in a meas-: upon the ability of our men to olaepf well. Our military operations are di rected to a large e.:tc;t by Sir Will lam l~obertson, and his physical wi.ll being, he teals us, depends upon his, being able to retire early from work. in order to rise betimes fromr. bed. The gift of sleep has been an asset of many great soldiers. Napoleon likened his own mind to a series of compartments, each the reeeptacle of a certain project. One after another, he closed them, and at flat he shut iep the last and instantly slept. Glad stone declared ability to sleep well, his one, notable faculty, but be had to erase thinklng at ten o'clock at ntght, "otherwise I should go mad," he ad ded. ,Wo?llngton could e?eey 'anywhere, even in the face of the enemy.

THE WAY WOUNDS HEAL. THE GREAT FIGHT AGAINST GERMS. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 July 1918

THE WAY WOUNDS HEAL. 0o--- THE GREAT FIGHT AGAINST GERMS. When one is wounded sevorely, and the doctor begins treating the li?son of flesh and bone, he is not trying to heal it, but is merely putting in in such a condition that it can heal it self. The gradual healing of a wound is one of the most interesting prdce aes that take place in our bodies. Dr. A. C. Gillaumo in a recent paper publishes a description of typio al wounds received in battle and how they heal. This description is true except in minor details of all wo.nds. There are three types of bullet wounds : 1. Those caused by bullets flying straight and at high speed; 2. Those caused by lowr speed bul lets, such as shrapnel; and 3. Those caused by fragments of shells and bullets that have ricochet ed or broken. The first are clean and generally un infected-they heal quickly,. "by first intention" if no deep-seated organ or bone has boon hit. The second mey behave like them or like the third class, according to their gravi...

BILLETS AT THE FRONT. INTERESTING SIDE LIGHTS ON INCIDENTS OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 5 July 1918

B.ILLETS AT THE FRONT. INTERESTING SIDE LIGHTS ON INCIDENTS OF THE WAR. Have you over considered how many things apart from fighting go to mra1e .the life of the vast army in the field? It is the comparative trivialities that imake the hardships of a pro -longel campaign, and the actual fight ing comes often as a relief. BATHS AND BILLETING. Baths are as casestial as big guns in France and Flanders. So the Guards; knowing the ehances of campaigning, `organised a huge travelling concern that follows the division wherever it gous.. "It plants Itself in an empty building- that seems adapted for the purpose. or, in doeanlt of such a building it erects its own premises.

Shopherd,; the well known Amorienn correspondent, has had.unuenal opportunities of watch ing air-achievements on every battle front in Europe. He gives a graphic account of the progress that has been made since 1914.,- -"Some of the tricks which the fly ing men learnt for themselves , went contrary to the theories of the-flying men themselves," he states. "The things which it seemed a flying man ought to do it was discovered to . be the very things that he ought not te do. "Under shrapnel fire it seemed th` proper thing to climb out of range And yet the flying man learnt by ideadly experiences that the best way to avoid shrapnel was to drop instep of climb, because climbing lneasznu the speed and allorded a slower targ et, while dropping increased the speed aeid spoilt the enemy's range., "To get aiove an enemy flyer and in front of him was the early war idea of plane-to-plane fighting in the air, but experience proved .that...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. Sir, — Regarding the correspondence going on in "The Advertiser" on "Un- married Ministers," "A Woman Who Knows," in her letter in your issue of 31st May, attempts to belittle my remarks on the small stipends paid to ministers by treating the matter in way of a joke. She is quite welcome to have fun at my expense, but this does not in any way affect the truth of my statements. I contend that the poor salaries given to ministers is a shocking disgrace to religion, and would not be tolorated in any other occupation or profession. I don't know whether "A Woman Who   Knows" has read Steele Rudd's book "The Poor P...
