MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

MEDICAL MEMS. Coughs. Experience has shown that there are two distinct kinds of coughs—one proceeding from an affection of the lungs and air tubes, as in a simple cold, the other proceeding from effer vescence in tlie stomach. The lung cough is a symptom which necessar ily requires attention, lest serious con sequences ensue. The stomach cough is a much more simple matter, and may easily he got rid of. It is caused by the effervescence of the food and drinlc which are put into the stomach. A. knowledge of this fact ought to lead persons so affected to ponder a little on the nature of their ailment and the peculiarity of their digestive powers. Some stomachs agree best with alkalis, others with acids; one person likes a bitter substance, an other a substance which is sour. The ncrson who desires a satisfactory ex planation of these circumstances will consult his own physician. Many stomach coughs arise from an undue love' of sweets—sweet tea, sweet drinks, sweet cake, sweet custard, ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is a strange but undeniable tact that most people hardly 6^ er hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you will sup pose that you can't help hearing vour seif when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise .thai it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly ptop talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a grea*. start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to bear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, ".Who is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you—don't you re cognise it?" and then you realise how deaf to your own voice you have been for many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a photograph is always some thing of...

To the Gouty. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

To the Gouty. For those who are liable to attacks of gout, it is tin excellent rule to re duce the allowance ol butcher's meat, especially beef, taking it no oftener than once a day, and preferably at midday instead of in the evening. Di gestion goes on very Blowly, if at all, during the hours of sleep, and the habit of eating meat at late dinner or supper is one of the chief causes tend ing to gout and rheumatism of the gouty type; Industry is essential to happiness and idleness is the friend of unhappi ness and ennui. Certain persons al ways will and always have existed who find employm.nt distasteful. They are endowed with an indolent disposition, and enjoy nothing more than complete immunity from work and responsibility. Their intense dis like of work of all descriptions en- j ables them to be ever ready with what they ure pleased to consider an adequate excuse. They "did not know," they "thought it had (been done," they "believed it was to be done tomorrow," it was "too hot" or...

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

THE FINAL CALL. ACTORS WHO DIED ON THE STAGE. PROPHETIC UTTERANCES.' The death o£ Mr: Walter Dagleish on the stage of the King's Theatre, Premantle, recalls the fact that many notable actors have made similar dra matic exits from this world. Some years ago, says the "Sun," it was the custom of the attendants at" the Prin cess Theatre in Melbourne to point to a bloodstain on a carpet at the exact spot on which Signor'Frederick died when he was playing in "Faust." The story of his tragic death used to be told in awesome whispers. Among actors of a superstitions tem- I perament the bloodstain—as the stain J had never been sent to the public analyst for identification it is difficult ' to say whether it was human blood— ' was a hallowed spot, and man* of them who were seen doing an undlg- ' riifled side-step not in the business of the play were only trying to avoid 1 desecrating the death-stain with the ' point of their stage shoes. Signor Frederic! died, as several imperson ators of Me...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

CHAPTER XV. During the short remainder of the night of Sheila's hall, Peter Bellairs did not retire to rest. He was deadly weary, hut his mind was so full of agitation that sleep was impossible. He had done fairly well in Paris, and had secured at the price of ten thou sand pounds the greater number of the diamonds which had been in the bracelet, but by 110 means all, for Le Kevre had sold some at a price which he took care not to mention. Bel lairs, Ilolman, and young Mordecai felt that nothing more could be done, •ind the unhappy K.C. returned to his home stricken to the he-art s core. He put the diamonds which he had secured at so vast a sum into his safe, intending to take them in the morn ing to Mordecai to verify. He found himself tired and depressed in a scene of brilliant gaiety, and, wh/it was worst of all, he knew that, owijg to his wife's theft, he was again a comparatively poor man. But Bellairs thought very little dur ing the remnant of that short night either of the di...

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE. Most writers of fiction unnecessary ly tax their imagination. If they wouiu only keep a scrap-book filled with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think out good plots or dramatic situations. John Frederick Wilson, a traveller, of Angel-road, Brixton, was married in *—>7, possibly to celebrate the golden jubilee, when he was only 22 years of age. In three years he had wearied ol his marital responsibilities, and,, according to the custom of some parts 01 Srixton, he left home one morning, and forgot to return. After eight years of single blessedness he had doubt3 about the joys of bachelorhood, and, recking nothing of the law relating to bigamy, he led another lady to ti.e altar. Meantime his first wife haJ been drifting down the road that leads I to the police station and His Majes-1 ty'B gaolB.

"At the presentation to him of the Civic Forum medal, a poem, written for the occasion, was read by its au thor, Percy MacKaye. It is not only a fine example of occasional verse, but a stirring description of Colonel Goethals' task, and of the spirit in whi<?h he accomplished it, as the fol lowing stanzas show:— "'A man went down to.Panama Where many a man had died To silt the sliding mountains And lift the eternal tide; ~ A man stood up in Panama, I And the mountains stood aside.

"MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

| "MAD GALLOP TO DISASTER." "The wages of rural workers have gone up 100 per cent, in the last ten years. Their hours are ofterf short er, for they don't begin as early. Their work is not as good. We have to pay that much more for less and worse work." This, in brief, is the opinion of Mr. W. J. Cartwright, Temora, one or the best farmers in Australia. Yet the Labor press, and the union agita tors who depends on strikes for a liv ing, try to drive down the throats of the community that the rural worker is a poor, underpaid, overworked, slioek-ingly-sweated creature! Mr. Holman, as Premier, has promised wages boards for the country. Yet, on the word of- Mr. Cartwright, there is no trouble with the farm hands. Under conditions as they are, if the ..ages boards are forced on the coun J try it will be the farmer who will be sweated and the farm hand will ride , the' high horse. It will be a mad gal I loi) to disaster, agriculturally. -"Syd ney Stock and Station Journal."

NIGHT VOICES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

NIGHT VOICES. By 13. S. SoreiiBon in the "Sydney Mail." Recently Mr. H. Watson asked for information on the night voices of the bush, remarking that "there are other night birds besides the mopoke and the night hawk—those barking birds, for instance, and another fel low which makes a sort of screech." What he calls the night hawk is the white-throated nightjar, a useful in sect-eater; and the chap that yelps for his mate is the barking owl. There are many diurnal birds that are not altogether quiescent at night, nor do all the nocturhal cries come from birds. Koalas, possums, and squirrels make a lot of noise when a couple of them have a disagreement. The pos sum calls pleasantly in peaceful hours, and the squirrel ofttimes vents a chat tering squeal as he darts from one tree to another. The most familiar (noctures are those of the dingo, the mopoke, and the stone curlew (weelo, or stone plover). The dingo's howl is always a lonely sound; the call of the mopoke is sweet, hauntinig, ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914

LADIES' LETTER. i Bt "Irene," in Melbourne. It is really astonishing how quickly we have the new season's fashions here, and, in a way, it must be confess eu, it is rather a pity, tor it means we are adopting modes designed for sum mer fabrics while we are still in win ter and wearing cloth and heavy weight materials. But as soon as in dications of the advance styles arrive, people will have them, so, in conBe quence, they are shown by our leading establishments. For instance, already ,-j flat Watteau and Dolly Varden ..aid of hats, which have been intro uuced in Paris for spring, are being shown here. They are very pictur esque and distinctly becoming, but not nearly so cosy and comfortable as the close-fitting ones we have been wear ing for a long time. However, per haps it is for the best, as the majority of women have been complaining bit terly of trouble with their hair and of its falling out excessively, and they blame it in a great measure to the close, tight-fitting hats whi...

A VILLAGE MINISTER. His full name was the Reverend Jolin Pickleby Dabbs. Everybody called him little Dabbs, even the vil lagers, with the addition o£ Mr. Not that they meant to be disrespectful I never knew the man who coulil say a disrespectful word of Dabbs. But he was little, so little that peo ple felt they didn't do him justice un less they continually referred to It. Those were prosperous days in Shertonstone when Dabbs began his ministry. Those were the days of village industries, when you might go down the street on a summer after noon and hear the whirl of a wheel and catch sight of busy fingers and feet through many a wide-open door. Those were the days when half-a dozen Nonconformist farmers drove their gigs up to the chapel gate and marched into the pews with their wives and children in front of them. Those were the days when the Ast burys and the Caters and the Kent Walshes and other old Dissenting fani ilies were the pillars of many a neigh boring cause. But now, heavy...

Not Worth While. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 11 June 1914

Not Worth While. It Is certainly not worth while for anyone to endure suffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain on vitality. It is impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absent. A large number of people, however, go through life afflicted with ailments which do not Incapacitate them from performing their duties, "but which decidedly pre vent them from doing their, best. Rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica ueuralgla, blood disorders, anaemia, Indigestion, biliousness, sick-headache, general debility, gravel, stone, and bladder troubles are complaints which 'afflict many of us, and which are gene rally caused >by retention of uric and biliary poisons in the system owing to defective action of the kidneys and liver, and which would disappear if the kidneys and liver properly per formed their functions.
