KEEP FAITH WITH THE Maxy a : CHILDREN . A~ n~y rwoman who would .not thliik~o:df: iighitl~ breaking a promise made'. to 'a grown.up person is utterly careless about keeping her word with her children. She promises whatever is convenient at the moment, and ap parently thinks that the breaking or keeping of those promises is a matteir in which she. can. please herself, -and that her'children have no right to con sider themselves aggrieved if she does not do so. A mother who acts thus does her children grjevoUis harm, She forgets that the sense of justice is strong in quite a 1'ttle, child, and.that it is nat ural and reasonable that he should expect his. parents to be as good as their word, and to fulfil their promi ses, even at\the cost of convenience. Promises should not be lightly broken, and the parent who is guilty of this soon loses her children's confidence, which is one of the sweetest things which our little ones can give us.

REMINISCENCES OF LADYSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 July 1914

?REMINISCENCESi OF LADYSMITH. Many. interesting incidents relative tio ,the-slege of Ladysmith are record ed in"Campaigns of a War Correspon dent," by the late Melton Prior: "The enemy succeeded in placing thirty-two guns on the heights above the town, and kept up such an inces sant fire that the troops and civilians were soon engaged in digging bomh proof shelters. In a short time they learned to distinguish the different Boer guns by their sound, and gave them amusing names. Thiee of the large ones they called 'Long Tom,' 'Puffing Billy,' and 'Weary Willie.' Then there was 'Silent Susan,' so named because the bursting of a shell was the first warning we got that it had been fired. "In spite of the havoc that these cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew accustomed to the shelling. One day the Second Gordon Highlanders were playing football when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no one was hit, and they went on playing. The Boers were so interested appar ently that they gav...

MEDICAL MEMS. Pain in the Feet. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 9 July 1914

S Pain irin the' Feet. In many cases pain in the feet is owing to the presence of corns, bun ions, or chilblains. But there are more obscure affections that cause pain in walking. Two of the most common are flatfoot, and the opposite condi tion-an overhigh arch. When the arch is too high the weight of the body is not properly dis tributed, but falls on the heel and the ball of the foot. The pain is especial ly severe i the bail of thefoot. -In flatfoot the pain is most severe in'the early stages, whenl the fibrous sheet that stretches between the ball of the foot and the heel has to do all the. work of keeping?.the, foot in shape, since the ligaments that are meant to I support the arch are already weaken ' ed and elongated. After this fibrous structure--the plantar fascia it is called- has yielded, and the flatfgot is , ~fully qstablished, the pain Is much less acutea . -Whehn bt:ih he's ar&?a.?ul i.;usu ally meaps e litr i~1 fi~oot is be ginning or' that fh rheumTc o? ~ ou...

THINGS-WNE TAKE FOR GRANTED.j We have been so long accustomed to livfng in civilised society that a hdndred and one conveniences which are used by us every day of our lives never strike us as being ours only by virtue of the fact that a gradual pro gression in the total amount of hu man knowledge has made them. pos sible.

."HORSE POWER." :It is not everyone who. knoivs the exact, meaning of- the term "horse power" as applied- to steam-engines. The following is the explanation given by Professor Farey in a book on the steam* engine: The -machinery 'in the great 'brew -iees and'-distilleries of London was mnioved by- horses, and the - proprie tors of those establishments, who were among the' first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always iiquired what number of norses an intended engine would replace - Cbnsequiently Mr.. Watt -made some experiments on the strong horses em ployed by the brewers of London, and found thiat a horse of that kind, walk ing. at the rate of: two and one-half miles' n hour, could draw one hun dred and fifty pounds avoirdupois by means of a rope passing over a pulley, so as to raise iup that weight, with a vertical motion, at the rate of two hundred and twenty feet a -minute. This exertion of mechanical power is equal' to raising thirty-three thousand pounds-or five hundred and fWe...
