SEWING AT SCHOOLS. CHILDREN'S EYESIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907

SEWING AT SCHOOLS. CHILDREN'S EYESIGHT. The question of bad eyesight among school children has of late years received much attention, but not, perhaps suffi cient to ensure that the rising generation will receive ,thc immense benefits that fnodern knowledge ought to endow them with. In Dr. H. G. Critchley's useful little btiok on 'Hygiene in School' a long chapter is devoted to this matter. It is noteworthy that he condemns sewing at school as harmful for little children. 'Some of what are known as school conditions are anything but normal, and it is indisputable that at their door must be laid the blame for the serious condi tion (of the eyesight) which results, or which, having otherwise resulted, be come:! exaggerated. 'In many cases the position of the child at the desk or work can only be described as thoroughly bad, but as often as not this is_ due to incorrect size of dei:ks or bad light, either as to its direction or quality. The time spent upon vrriting and sewing is wasted...

LONDON'S NIGHTS. ] HUNGER'S TRYST. Harold Owen writes in the 'Dally Mall' of 4th February: — ?' Under Waterloo Bridge, and stretching ^ beyond against the Embankment wall, Is ranged the army of outcasts who come here every winter night to be fed — to sup ere they have dined. 'Farther west, at Charing Cross, is another detachment of the same army, and between them the draggled outcasts among womankind keep a separate station. In the road way. a coveted cart from which men wearing the caps of the Solvation, Army are lifting huge cans of soup. Piles of enamelled tlij bowls and little heaips of los.yen, already sliced, lie waiting on the .pavement.

THE MODERN CRITIC. WHAT HE THINKS OF HIMSELF. The critic is simply a man who does in an expert and specialised manner what tho mati in the street docs roughly and fumblmgly. Criti cism is an art that has to be learned . like any other. The critic has Lo got to the secret of a given work ; ho has to know it so woll, and absorb himself in ;t so ' thoroughly, that ho can see exactly whiat wont on in its creator's mind during the act of creation. Then, having seen this, ho has to do what tho composer cannot possi bly do — see tho work in tits true rela tion to other works of the samo man and 'to the works of other men. He „ has to decide where it succeeds or . fails. In order to do this he must havo a long experience of overy kind tif music, so that his brain can spon taneously institute comparisons bo-r 1 tween tho new wcrk and others of the same kind ; ho must tako care not to be biased ; ho must learn' to distrust hasty impressions ; ho must ' try to fee susceptjble to the beauty of ...

HOME NURSING HINTS FOR THE AMATEUR. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907

HOME NURSING HINTS FOR THE AMATEUR. Tho idea in the mind of every wo man that she is a born nurse is on - of those cherished fallacies which is very hard to discredit. Tho majority of women, however, unless they h&vc been trained in a hospital or cbme under tho personal direction — at some time of their lives — of a professional nurse, are very ignorant cf the many small practical details which, after all, make more for the personal com fort and wellbuing of tho9_- who aro ill than any amount of superficial ', theoretical knowledge of the illness itself. No conversation, except what is addressed directly to the patienti him self, should over be permitted in tho sick-room ; few things are more irritating, not only when there is much pain, irritability, or weakness during convalenconco than a con tinuous dialogue between two ama 'teur nurses, especially when the con versation concerns tho invalid him self, his treatment, appetite, or pro gress. Whispering outside the door or w...

'LES LORDS.' ' i. FRENCH LAMENT. 'C.B.'s' resolution to take My Lords in hand is attracting tho lively atten tion of the French Press and public. The Republicans of all shades wish the British Premier good luck. They do not (all of them) go- so far as to say 'Abolish them,' but they all agree that My Lords need reforming ? pretty badly. . Even their own Second Cham ber in the somnolent Luxembourg needs stirring up. But. ttie'Gaulois' is alarmed ? at the prospect of an overhauling of this 'majestic Institution,' the House of Lords. Shall we witness 'the imposing ruins' of tho House of Lords? the 'Gaulois' asks. The 'Gaulois' is Cleri cal and Monarchist, and believes iu the restoration of Monarchy in France. The 'Gaulois'- informs the French people that 'Les Lords' are the 'elite of the nation,' and it admires the per formances of 'Les Lords' in legislation against trade unionism and in hamper ing 'les Radicaux' who are nt their unholy task of laicising the schools.

. ' GERMS. ' - THEIR RIGHT TO LIVE. Sir Patrick Manson, K.C.M.G., the medical adviser to the Colonial Officc. : lectured on 'Dirt, Damp and Disease' ; nt /he Working Men's College in St. Bfincras on Saturday, lljT.i January, - -and incidentally defended the right of the germ to live. Malaria germs, he said, lived in damp surroundings— germs had as much right to live as human beings— and mos quitos which became impregnated with malaria germs attacked men and infccted thorn. Now that tho cause of malaria -was discovered, much of the now uninhabit- . able part of the Empire would become healthy in a reasonable time. Sir Patrick emphasised the virtues of cleanliness in hia remarks about plague. The plague germ could only affect a body when inoculated into it. The ques tion wa.s— How did the germ pass from rats to men? Like human beings, rats ?were apt to be attacked by parasites, especially fleas, nnd when these insects became impregnated with disease, they conveyed it to human beings. ...

A LEGAL SUMMARY. THE EDALJI CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 25 April 1907

j A LEGAL SUMMARY, j THE EDALJI CASE. , There is a. natural and just dis trust of any agitation in favor of a prisoner who has been convicted when thoso who would quash the : sentence rely upon evidence not pro duced or points not taken at tho trial-. How easy it is for relatives, friends, or sympathisers to collect or I even unconsciously to manufacture such evidence is notorious. Some | fact, perhaps known at tho timo of tho trial, but withhold, it may bo, for good reasons by the prisoner's I advisers, is magnified or distorted. Mer0 gossip is put forward as worthy | of implicit credence; tho facts which weighed with tho jury aro suppressed .or garbled ; and a certain part of the public, genexo.us but imrulsive, greedily believes that the prisoner was, wrongly convicted, and that there ' has been another Ereyfus or Beck case.

. USEFUI. HINTS. ' Salt phould be added to all water when boiling fresh vegetables; a piece of soda the size of a pea sihould be added to a large panful of boiling water.

The acid of the fruit (acetic acid) acts on the Irofi In tl.ls latter case, but as not affect the silver.

The strange possibilities of deception by means of 'doubles' have frequently been demonstrated in fiction an5 in fact, . but only in the pages of 'John Chllcote.

During the past week she said, she had | noticed a change in the man who was i living with her as her husband, and had. come to the conclusion' that although ho resembled him astonishingly he was not her real husband.

REPRESSING THE IRREPRESSIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 2 May 1907

REPRESSING THE IRRE-' ' PRESSIBLE. ' Repressing the irrepressible ' may sound like a contradiction in -terms and partake of the paradox, but it is an expression justified by experience, when it refers to the fine work of the ' Ideal ' Poison Cart, operating against bunny and bunny's increase and progeny, and all bunny's friends and acquaintances. Many are the means mentioned for the destruction of the pest of the pastoralist.and the despoiler of the farmer. But1 when all is said and sampled, recommended and ex perimented the conclusion arrived at is that, none is nearly so effective as the Ideal Poison Curt. It is the fly in tlie ointment, the vinegar in the sugar, tlie obstacle in. the way, and the spectre at tlie banquet of bunny. It is the o'tie' thing' tliiit- 'disputes1 -his supremacy and'sentences biui to deatii.
