The Internal Bath. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

The internal Bath. T)r. Garcy, the French specialist in appendicitis, has asserted that al most all of his appendicitis pa tients were water drinkers, from which he deduces the theory that wine is a safer beverage than water. Commenting on this, another spe cialist, Dr. \V: F. Varcoe, says that on the contrary, free water drinkers seldom if ever have ap pendicitis. Most o>' those afflicted with that disease have not drunk enough, water, but too much wine, beer and whisky. The doctor assures us that pure water or diltilled water well aerat ed, is certainly better than wine, especially the cheap wines of artifi cial manufacture, which are very in jurious to the system. Constipation is the most frequent cause of ap pendicitis, and one or two glasses of water before retiring and one half hour before breakfast will cure 'many cases of that torpid condi tion. Water gives an internal bath; it dilutes the fluids in which the cells of the body are bathed; it increases assimilation, metabo...

City Underlaid with Gold. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

I City Underlaid with Gold. ^ The ground on which Philadel phia is built is said to be of the richest, goldfields in the world. The only % difficulty there is that the field cannot be worked. Nearly the whole city is underlaid with clay to the depth of about 10ft-an area i say, of ten miles square. A cubic foot of clay, weighing I about 1201b., taken from a depth | of 14ft., when the cellar of the j Twelfth-street market-house was ex j cavated, was practically demon- | j strated to contain seven-tenths of ! a grain of gold; or lib. in j 1,224,000. | The experiment was repeated with j about the same results with clay | taken from a brickyard in the su burbs. Supposing the whole mass of clay to be 4.180,000,0001b. (and it is i j really much greater), the amount of ) j gravel is much richer in gold than { ! the clay, but there is not so much ; of it. ; Undoubtedly £200,000,000 worth j of gold lies within 15ft. of the sur i face, and still it cannot be used. i' i ?

Counting; Time in Panama. -4 Far back in the interior of an Empire city (Panama) block I came upon an old negro woman, , parch ment-skinned and doddering, living alone in a stoop-shouldered shanty of boxes and tin cans. "Ah don't know ol' ah is, mahster," was one of her replies, "but ah born six years befo' de cholera diskivered." "When did you ,come to Pana ma ?" "Ah don' know, but it a long time ago." v "Before the Americans, perhaps ?" Oh, long befo' ! De French ain't only jes' begin to dig. Ah's ashamed to say how long ah been here" (just why wa6 not evident, unless she fancied she should long ago have made her fortune and left). "Is you a American ?

EGGS FOR HATCHING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

EGGS FOR; HATCHIXG . , In sending away eggs for hatching several methods, may be adopted Special: boxes, made of wood, or good strong cardboard, fitted with com partments, are sold for the purpose and, in such cases the trouble is rc" duced to a mimiruum. A cheaper method, however, is to obtain a chocolate or soap box large enough to hold a dozen eggs and to wrap each egg carefully in newspaper, finallj wedging the egg' tightly in the box with more paper or hay, in such a way that they can not move. All boxes of eggs for hatching should be sent by passes* ger train at parcels rates, fully labelled to denote the contents. If Consignments of eggs are sent 1*5" train to distant markets they should be packed in wooden - compartment boxes, such as can be obtained from any appliance manufacturer. These boxes are returned to the sender,.and the percentage of breakages is small It very often happens that new kid gloves are split the very first time they are tried on. This cau be pre vented ...

A LIFE OF TRAGEDIES. Cecily, Duchess of York, who died on May 31, 1485, probably had I more appalling tragedies connected! with her life than anyone has ever; had. Daughter of Ralph Neville, the powerful Karl of Westmorland, she was the youngest of twenty-one children, and married Richard Plan tagenet, Duke of York. Her family made strenuous efforts to see her and her husband on the throne of j England; but they were all swept away in different tragic ways be fore Cicely became the mother of kings. - Her nephew', Humphrey, was killed at St. Albans in 14-55, and her brother-in-law, the Duke of "Bucking ham, met the same fate at North hampton ir. 1460. Her husband was killed at the Battle of Wakefield just as the crown was within his grasp. Two more of her nephews were killed nt.the same time and place. Her brother, the Earl of Salisbury, was captured and put to death. Her young, twelve^year-old son, Edmund, Earl of Rutland, was caught flying from the fatal field with his tutor, and m...

Attacked by Bees. GALLANT POLICEMEN TO THE RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

Attacked by Bees. GALLANT POLICEMEN TO THE RESCUE. The police and Government bee ex perts were called upon to perform a novel duty, when they were sum moned to F Street, in the most fashionable district of Washington, to rescue a number of lightly-clad young ladies from a swarm of bees. Whore the bees came from has not been discovered, but they were pre sent in their hundreds, much to the discomfort of fair promenaders, who, on account of the extreme heat, had reduced their wearing ap parel to the flimsiest of summer garments. ' "Peekaboo" blouses, with generous arm and neck openings, diaphanous skirts and "almost" stockings proved no sort of protection against the stings, of the vicious little insects, and screams for help were very soon, echoing along the thoroughfare. Policemen came to the rescue in the most heroic manner, but after most had been badly stung they summon ed the official bee experts from the Department of Agriculture. It was some time before even these learn ed stu...

CALF REARING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

CALF REARING. The Royal Agricultural Society of England has been conducting some experiments on the rearing of calves, and has issued a report of the re sults.1 These experiments were carried out with several batches of animals, divided'into five groups, and over a period of 'nine weeks. The different kinds of food were as follows ? God-liver oil and separated milk ; whole crushed-oats with separated milk. The; whole result of the experi ments may be summed up in one statement- that the* crushed- oats and' separated milk gave the best re turns. This is very' instructive in deed and isp all- in favour of the use of home-grown food, as both the oats and separated milk may be pro duced on the farm. The present writer has just been informed by one of his neighbours that the best food he-has discover ed for the" growth of calves after the first month of milk feeding is" over; is a mixture of oats' and whole: beans. The beans are only partly -chewed and regurgitated' and" chewed over .aga...

When Laurie reached home the bell was ringing for luncheon, and a few minutes later he entered the dining room, expecting to hear some caustic remarks about his tardy appearance, as Sir Leonard Hatton 'was a great stickler for punctuality ; but to his surprise he found his uncle was not at the table, and Laurie took his seat with a sense of being one bet ter than the master of the house, and waited patiently for his appear ance. At last, when five minutes- had pas sed, he turned to the butler, who was hovering about, sajing : ' "I suppose my uncle is in the. house ?" . "Yes, sir.

NOT TOO OLD AT SIXTY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 18 September 1914

NOT TOO OI-D AT SIXTY. In these days, when we are fre quently hearing "too old at forty," it is refreshing: to know that there are many'people to whom this say ing does not apply in every walk of life, and especially is it so in the literary profession. iV'ictor Hugo, one of the 'greatest writers that Francc hay ever produced, wrote "Les Miserables," the finest work of his life, in exile in 1SR2, when he was sixty years old. This work, which raised its author at once to a supreme place in French literature, was published simultan eously in Paris, Brussels, London, Xew York, Madrid, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Turin. The story is a particularly fasci nating one, and possesses .historical value, because of the accurate de scriptions it gives of Paris at that period. It is a book of lofty mo rality, and in its hero it gives a splendid example of heroic self-sac rifice. It is a book, moreover, which strikes one forcibly as hav ing been written by one who be lieved in human love: in puri...

But the "fickle jade" ' turned against him at last. During the first year of his success he eloped with Lady Florence Paget, tiie affianced bride of Mr. Henry Chaplin- who had driven with her intended husband to Swan and Ed car's to complete her purchases for jjgr wedding, which was to have taken place within a week. > In stead, she left by another door, and being joined by the marquis, they were at. once married. Mr. Chap jin wanted to "call out" his man ; but this was prevented. His time for revenge came when he -won the Derby with Hermit in a snow stohn, the horse having started at 40 to 1- t,lis race Lord Hast ings lost over £100,000, and so little did the "bookies" expect to see their money back that they sold their rights to others for small su...
