REDUCTION OF HOTELS. STATE MINISTRY'S POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 20 May 1914

REDUCTION OF HOTELS. STATE MINISTRY'S POLICY. In framing its general election programme, the State Ministry will consider what attitude.it shall' take up with respect to licensing legis lation, when the sections of the 1906 Act, relating to the work^of the Licenses Reduction Board, ex pire between two and three years hence. When questioned as to how they regarded the resolution in favor of no-license, adopted by the Presby terian General Assembly, Mr. W. A. Watt, the Premier, and,Mr. J. Murray, the Chief' Secretary.,, said that a question of policy was involved, and'they could not dis cuss it. They gave a similar answer when asked whether it was intended to provide for a- con tinuance of the work of the Licenses Reduction Board after 1916, or allow local. option to automatically come into operation. i While the Cabinet contains two or three members with strong total abstinence principles, who desire to see licensing legislation tighten ed up so as to lessen drinking facili ties, it ...

ADuty to Posterity. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914

A Duty to Posterity. "I don't care," exclaimed the prehis toric woman, "if it is on crooked." A shadow of pain flitted across the face of the prehistoric man. "Dearest," he pleaded, "say not so. Thou knowest not " He gazed anxiously into her eyes. "—but it may be the imprint of thy form that the archaeologist will find upon the insensate rock." With a new realisation of the re sponsibilities of existence she turned again to her mirror. Home-fed meat formed 52% per cent, of the total weight consumed last year in the United Kingdom, and the imported meat 47% per cent. The total quantity of beef, veal, mutton, lamb, pork, bacon, hams and unclassified meat consumed in Great Britain and Ireland last year amouut ed to 2,277,,500 tons, viz.: Home-fed. 1,202,200 tons; imported, 1,075,30C tons.

THE PROFITS OF PERSONAL. APPEARANCE. By Fortune Free. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914

THE PROFITS OF PERSONAL. APPEARANCE. By Fortune Free. Does not appearance, count In life? I fead in the paper a few days ago of a situation being advertised as vacant. One man was wanted, and forty-two turned up. One of the failures wrote afterwards -protesting against the "ridiculous" manner in which the guardians set about their task of selec tion. The forty-two were drawn up in two lines, and then the guardians walked down them. After that they retired and sent out for particular candidates. When they had exam ined nine they found the man they wanted. The disgusted gentleman wished to know why he was not "given a chance." One of the guardians thereupon stated that they glanced over the candidates and called in the smartest-looking ones! As one of them —number nine—possessed all the sualifications they needed they stopped at him. People make selections in the same way every day of their lives. Per haps they do it unconsciously. They do it all the same. I find a good number of my f...

LIFE OF MICROBES. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914

■ LIFE OF MICROBES. What becomes of the microbes thai abound in his body when a person ( dies ol a contagious disease? This question has been investigated in Ger many by Dr Klein, who buried the bodies of infected animals for stated periods, and then examined them for germ life. He found that the bacillus of cholera lives nineteen days, but does aot preserve its reproductive power after eighteen. The resistance of Eberth's bacillus (that of typhoid) is nearly the same. The perm of the plague is always alive after seventeen days of burial, but not after 3 weeks. The bacillus of tuberculosis (which, it should be insisted upon, destroys more lives than that of the plapue, although it frightens people less), doea aot survive the animal that it has killed. Klein has found it in th« organs, but has never been able t-a make cultures of it, and, a more im portant fact, has never succeeded in reproducing tuberculosis by injection! of bacilli found in dead bodies. Enough to Make Her. 'Why doe...

DANGERS OF A SCBATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914

DANGERS OF A SCBATCH. Scarcely a day passes over that many persons do not, in some way 01 other, get a scratch, a small cut, or a bruise that may break the skin. In most instances not the slightest at tention is paid to this beyond the tern porary annoyance of the pain and the possible irritation when the hands arr put into water, or some subsequent blow in the same spot brings an ex clamation on account of tne hurt, of floating disease-germs, especially the air of cities and towns, and an injury of this sort, be it ever so Blight, might furnish excellent breeding ground for some deadly bacteria. It *s a good plan always to keep a bottle of prepared carbolic acid' and glycerine, and frequently touch all bruises or sore spots with it. This is one of the most convenient and effective germicides imaginable. It is believed that many cases of fever and other serious ailments can be con tracted by floating germs coming in contact with abraded skin. Once snugly lodged in this most congenia...

ADVENTURE WITH A MOUNTAIN LION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 23 May 1914

ADVENTURE WITH A MOUNT AI» LION. i/here is one animal (says a writer ji the 'Lob Angeles Times') I prefer k> hunt above all others, and that is the mountain lion. I wish my readers could see the marvellous leaps made by this hugV cat when hard pressed by a pack of hounds. Nothing short of a good pack can run him; 30 and 40 feet he makes at a boundv..jising like a winged creature high above the grease-wood and chapparal; ground Bcent for the dogs is barely left, so daintily does he alight; the hounds must use the slightly tainted ait foi their guide. It is a well known fact that the mountain lion stands in the greatest terror of dogs. When chased by them he will first try to outrun them; fail ing in this, he will take to the nearest tree. But when there is no tree of fuge, and the lion comes to bay, then look out. One stroke of the powerful paw means a dead dog, and unless the bunter comes to the rescue with rifle or revolver, the savage bruto will slaughter the whole pack in deta...

HUME SEUHETS. Did you ever -hear that 40 per cent of tlio children of the whole world iiavf weak kidneys to a greater or less de- i gree? Mothers know it. ,ind there if a very mistaken policy of "saying no. I thing about it." Some mothers nttri j bute it to habit. It is not habit at all. Why are those children who have ) this "habit" thirsty at bed time? Lot j lis tell yon. The kidneys become some j what inflamed by the daily activity oi , the child, and demand something cool : ing. The result is the same vhethei j they drink or not. Give such children ; one of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills twice a day, and as sure as you dc their kidneys quickly become strength ened, and sweet rooms and beds, and i undisturbed studies at school will be the result. Their weakened kidneys are nearly always the result of some former sickness, and as easily cured as any childish ailment. j Mrs. E.
