MEDICAL SCIENCE. A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY. ROENGTEN RAYS SUPERSEDED [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
MEDICAL 8CIENCE. , A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY. ROENGTEN RAYS SUPERSEDED When the announcement was made soiue few years ago to the .scientific-'world of the discovery of the Itoengten (popularly known as the X) rays, it was generally considered that noth ing further could he done in that directions along which improve ments might . be made. Vet it \vas admitted' by medical scientists that-there were certain directions in which improve ments might be made. The X ray tube is really a slightly modified Crook's tube, so named after its discoverer, an eminent physicist.^Dr Jackson ,of King's College, London, was the discov erer of the target which focu.ssed the-X ray on to a spot. The Crook's tube was full of air, and this was pumped out until only a millionth part was left. A figure of this kind is barely appreciable to the lay mind, though'to the scientist, it represents some thing considerable,, more espec ially in a matter of this kind. There "were no limitatons so that the heat generated ...

SHOULD DYSPEPTICS DIET? A SPECIALIST'S VALUABLE ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
SHOULD DYSPEPTICS DIET? A SPECIALIST'S VALUABLE V ; . ADVICE. ./'Dyspepsia, indigestion, flatu lence and practically all forms of stomach trouble," writes a leading specialist, "are in nearly every instance t'lie direct result of food fehmentation and the con sequent production in the sto mach of acid and gas which ir ritate and distend the stomach and make normal digestion im possible. The gas by distending the stomach and pressing upon the surrounding vital organs se riously interferes with their work, and frequently causes pal pitation of the heart; but the acid is much more dangerous, because it irritates then inflames and cven ulcerates the delicate lining of the stomach, producing dangerous stomach ulcers and even cancer. Food fermentation being primarily responsible for all Ujc trouble, it was long the •astom of physicians to permit the use only of such foods as could not ferment, but unfortu nately unfermentable foods were soon found to be so lacking in nutrition as to resul...

Her Eyes Upon Him. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
Her Eyes Upon Him. A w:ell-known;;$mer -was present re cently at a dress rehearsal of a com edy played by amateurs. The re hearsal went well, but the' hero, B—, seemed rather hard and cold.. The novelist sat in a box next to a charm ing woman of middle age. She said,* at the end of the third act, "It goes beautifully, doesn't it?" "Beautifully," said the gentleman. "But B doesn't make love to that pretty girl in as ardent a manner as I could wish. ^ HiB love-making, in fact, strikes me as very tame and spiritless." The woman frowned. "He won't put any more spirit in it while I've got my eye on him( let me tell you," she said. "I'm Mrs. B—■—." "Pa, what is a diplomat?" A diplomat, my son, is a man who remembers a lady's birthday, but for g tg her age."

The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with,, the high brow and the Henry-Clay forelock, "let me ask you a Hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habnfe aiul increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glorjr of spun gold, whose lips were more ^perfect than Hogarth's line of beauty, whos-; cheeks held a tint that put to shame the magnificent pink of the rose petal—a young woman whose culture and charm easily' placed her immea surably above all other women in the world—and he were to ask this young woman if she would " "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed, sinking into his arms.

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD 'REST., ,'' By a Hospital Nurse. Ordinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are-not by any-means the most'restful positions you can adopt, cor, though they ease certain parts'of '.he body, they leave' others just as strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know the val ue of putting your feet up as high as ■ they will comfortably go. It is not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet on the table or the mantelpiece, but it is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once told me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatment on girls whose work made it necessary for them to stand about a great deal—shop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get your feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered. His patients used to think this very strange a,t first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs. Another very "comfy," though not e...

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It Is w'e'.i known that colors have different effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, fori in stance—and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. ^ . The most remarkable o£ all colors, j however, Is red, which is noted for | its healing qualities. Rel has always 'been a color that has "made itself felt," as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have 1 dressed those who are 'suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually I paint any children who catch measles red. Ncr does China stand alone in this respect. TlTe Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but also of feeding them' with red syrup. Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, while red light is most helpful in seme cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ing?, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people...
Polite Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 7 May 1914
Polite Melbourne. It was at a public-house in Mel bourne, where an old lady asked for a ouartern qf gin in a bottle. • "We have three kinds, ma'am," said one of the grinning barmen. "We have oyxgen, hydrogen, and dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin," replied the old lady se verely. When she was served she said: "I was not aware your master kept three asses before, but I notice that he does. , "Where?" asked the surprised bar man. . "Why, there," she said, pointing to the other two barmen. "There is Mr. Compass, Mr. Thomas, and—let me sej, they call you 'Jack,' don't they?" "Yos," replied the barman. ' "Then," she said, as she politely bowed herself out, "good-night, Jack ass!" ' A dispute had long existed in a gentleman's family between the cook and the coachman, about bringing the cream from the farm for breakfast. Their master one morning called j them both before him that he might (lieUr what they had to say. The cook pleaded that the coach ; ir.an was lounging about the kitc...

London had treated-'the arrest of Leila with some indifference until.it heard of her romantic marriage— then in a twinkling it fell to feasting upon that dish of drama. Journalists bombarded Hugh- in ms hotel; he saw none of them. They served up stirring tales of the flight from Newcastle — differed . as to whether Leila herself haid been kid napped, or had braved,, the. seas in a small boat, were convinced that her trial would be one of the sensations of the season. The world is in its own way grateful to a neighbor whogoes to prison to make a newspaper holi day; and Leila assuredly would ri&ve to go to prison, as all the exports agreed. What chiefly concerned the editors was the difficulty of getting her photograph—so they printed her sister's as a solatium to an expectant public. Hugh was in court ve...
