FOODS OF THE MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 22 May 1914

FOODS OF THE MIND. We arc conscious that tlie food oi the body influences the health of the miud, as when we say of some un suitable or indigestible thing, "it has made me dull of mind, it has made me sad, it has made me irritable, or has iu some other way affected my equanimity." But we do not recog nise with like readiuess and iu the same way the effect of ttw foods of the mind on the mind and its health; nor is this remarkable, for the body feeds perceptibly, and by one stom ach alone, while the mind feeds im perceptibly by five stomachs, by every sense, which is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re ceives its ailment, be that good or bad, and from and by which it is re newed and from day to day sustained. These foods of the mind entering the mental organisation, the camera nervosa, largely, if not altogether, mould that organisation into set form, according to its quality for moulding. They are so like the touch of the sculptor on the vlay, that to a large extent a...

DOWN WITH THE PERSTRNIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 22 May 1914

down with the pedestrian. Owing to the ever-Increasing perils of the traffic in the city streets the pedestrian has been much discussed of late by motorists, who are anxious to keep the pedestrian in his prope' place, which seems to be on the foot path, and nowhere else. It is there fore not surprising 'that ihe pedes trian, after reading the opinions ex pressed about him by motorists, and enjoying a hearty supper, should have dreamt that he was present—a soli tary pedestrian, at a meeting of in dignant motorists, and heard the fol lowing speech:— "If we do not take prompt action, fellow-motorists, not one of us will b-j alive in Melbourne in another year. During the past 12 months 275 poor motorists have been run over and kmed by pedestrians; 3119 have been seriously injured, 12S5 being cripplea »or life. (Groans.)

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 22 May 1914

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets: that there is no observable diminution in the volume of the human stream that sets towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On Sabbath after Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" be out of date, and brevity's the aim Of many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As when the Reverend John Macduff preached sermons aad and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir for Sunday's boating song? When joys of Sydney Harbor to the Sydney people call. The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may be right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus will not seek To justify the way they spend their holiday per week. ^ j . or yet can Peter well condemn thb ' pleasant things they do, | For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does 'em too. ; When he was young he went to I church because be had to go, But now he's wise to...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 22 May 1914

LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. We often hear of folks being "blue," but have never seen It so nearly ex emplified as at the Repertory Thea tre ball, where several ladles were blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair. This was the first time in Melbourne that the new dyed wigs have >-een see i in any numbers, and we have not yet quite decided whether we like them or not. wf course, we pre accus tomed to the coiffure which is so deep orange in hue that It is prac tically mnjenta. We have had a num ber of these of late years, but th? new tones are quite a novelty. I can not say they are nearly as becoming as the natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certainl more becoming than the light sax» tones, and in one or two instances the purple proved really effective, but on the \\-hole these colored wigs can not be voted a Buccess. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair. -*■ is but a freak fashion ...

JOHN RUDD'S SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 22 May 1914

JOHN RUDD'S SECRET. By C. D. Leslie. To John Rudd, busy at his desk— lie had just returned from a flying business trip to tile Continent—the card of Miss Bertha Heath was brought by his secretary. The mil lionaire read it, wondering who she was, then his eye caught the address in the corner, and his face clouded, as though recalling an unpleasant me mory; after a long pause lie bade Par ker admit Miss Heath. "I will see her alone," he added. The interview took place ill the mil lionaire's house in Berkeley Square, much of his work being transacted there. A girl entered—a thin, frail figure in black, with frightened eyes ami hesitating mien. Mr. Kudu rose and shook hands with curt civility. "I heard in Dresden of my old friend's death. I'm sorry I was unable to return in time for the funeral." "This letter—she wrote it two days before she died," said tl\e girl, timid ly proffering It. He waved her to a seat, opened, and read the following epistle:— "Dear John,—I've always pro mised B...

THE COLD BATH. If you do not feci warm after a cold bath you had 'bolter not take it. for i: Is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness; cold water may wash off the superfi cial dirt, but it does not extract the tlirt from.the pores. We plunge into '.*!oI(l water solely for its invigorating eiiect, and unio&s we get that invig orating effort from fc we had better seek the invigoratiou in sumo other way. Cold water applied suddenly drives the blood from the skin by constrict ing the capillaries. It aU.o adminis ters a light shock to the nerves, which has an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the -body. The capillar ies being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart pressure is greater. Th? heart responds to this resistance by greater effort; it beats more rapid ly and with stronger force. The blood surges througu the body more swift ly. and forces its way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that has closed them is withdra...
