PRECAUTIONS IN MUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 23 April 1914
PRECAUTIONS IN MIUMI'S. If it is known that mumps is about,ý there ought to be little or no difficulty in diagnosing the condition. The sud den appearance of a swelling of the parts always affected, in a person pro viously quite healthy, should be quite sufficient. Of course, in other condi tions the glands about the neck are sometimes enlarged l but any swelling in front and behind the oar, the lobe. of which is raised, should cause one to suspect mumps, especially if the in flammation has a teudency to aspear on both sides of the neck. In cilses of scarlatina and diphtheria there lay be great swelling at the angle of toe jaw; but in these cases the patients are obviously seriously ill, and an ex amination of the throat soon settles the matter. .Children, for the most part, quickly recover from mumps without the appearance of complica tions. Adults are not quite so for tunate and their convalescenso is somewihat more tardy. As a rule, no medicinal treatment, other than at tention t...

Kinnear. PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. Cr. Rhoden presided as chairman of committee. Correspondence. Noyes Bros. wrote re steam waggon, which had been inspected by their en- gineer, and they considered the break did not come under the maintenance clause.

The waggon was out of use now, because of the broken wheel, and the Council was losing in consequence. Decided that the account for a new wheel (Tyne Foundry) be sent on to Noyes Brothers. , .

NOTES BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 23 April 1914
NOTES BY THE WAY &nbsp; By "Observer." The Association football matches started on Easter Monday, but, ac- cording to "Old Boy," in the "Argus," although "the games were well and keenly played they lacked the enthus- iasm usually attendant on the opening day." The weather certainly was on the chilly side and the sky somewhat overcast, but this sort of thing is char acteristic of the football season, and would hardly account for the absence of enthusiasm. It may be that the players had hardly yet struck form, and the above sporting writer admits that most of the grounds were very hard. No doubt they are, after the dry summer, and at time of writing it looks as if we were about to glide into a winter with a scanty rainfall. How- ever, it is not likely that the football matches will long "lack enthusiasm" when once the season gets fairly under weigh. Mr. Hant's meteorological forecast for the Easter holidays was not quite accurate and the weather turned out better than promised...
