HEALTH IN THE HOME. HINTS FOR THE SICK ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 26 December 1914

LHEALTH IN TIHE HOME, HINTS FOR THE SICK ROOM. As hot milk tends to form a scum over the surface on short notice, it is well to whip it quickly-for a mo ment with an egg beater and keep it tightly covered; and simmer for five minutes. In serving food to the invalid see that the napkin is fresh, the spoon bright, and the water clear, antd the food dainty. Use your best china, and place a blossom or a leaf on the tray. Never serve food to an invalid lukewarm; never serve it twice in exactly the same manner. Wh\Vlen vomiting oc curs peptonised or pancreatinised milk ran be given. Mlilk usually leaves a coating in the mouth; a few teaspoonfuls of weak ten taken af terwards will leave a clean taste in the mouth. Emaciated persons should be rubbed with olive oil; and it often proves acceptable when the skin is dry from fever. The juice of an orange can often be retained on the stomach when all other things fail; mixed with a little rice it will be grateful to a parched tongue. Ricewater i...

The shipbuilding yard is a State enter prise, over whioh £1300 a wesk was expended last year.
