OVER-FEEDING. "Over-foeding Is tho thing from which civilisation suffers to-day," says Professor Herewanl Carrington. "1 consider it is far more important than drink, because it affects a far greater number of persons, both young and old, men, women and children. The surplus of food in tho stomach, parti cularly If it bo of an Irritating and.sti mulating quality, sets up a constant Irritation of that organ, which is tem porarily allayed by the greater stimu lant, alcohol. After reviewing all tho evidcnco at my disposal, a highly im portant deduction may bo drawn, an cfxtremely significant conclusion reach ed, which affocts the welfare of the wholo human race. We have at last a scientific basis for calculating what tho average intaUo of food should be by those in health and who wish to romaln in health. Twelve ounces of nutriment daily is all that the body needs in order to preserve its weight and to roplaco whatever tissue has been lost as tho result of the day'R muscular exertion o...

Diplomacy. Sunday passed. Tuesday rolled around, and still his tall form did not loom in the vestibule when the cuckoo clock was sounding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl was burning with wrath. "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What have you to say for yourself? Why didn't you come!"

"Well, he told me to keep away from all sweets." The next moment she had him seat ed on the couch telling him he was the nicest young man in the world.

TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
TRUE ECONOMY, Economy and economise are two mucli-uuod words, but sometimes, we tear, they are falsely applied. Econo my as practised by somo persons is nothing but extravagance, although ono might have much troublo in con vincing the person of the truth of this statement. If ono wastes time doing work which might be employed in doing something of more importance—even though the work be very necessary—it is not prac tising economy. Ho might better hire some other person to have the work done and employ his own timo at the thing for which he is fit ted. A housekeeper who insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for which she is not physically able may think she Is very economical, but If sho gets Biclt, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several washings or hire several dresses made by a dressmaker and save her the suffering beside. What is the ttse of buying a cheap pair of shoes that coat possibly half as much as a good pair, and have the solos drop off t...

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. A great deal of talont is lost in tho world for the want of a little courage. Every day sondB to their graves a num ber o£ obscure men who have only re mained in obscurity because of their timidity, which has prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they could have been Induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world worth doing, wo must not stand shivering and thinking of tho cold and danger, but Jump in and scramble through as well as we can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nico chances; It did well before the Flood, when a man could consult his friends upon an In tended publication for 150 yearB, and then live to see his success afterwards, but at present a man waits, and doubts and consults his brother and his par ticular friends, till one fino day he finds that ho is sixty years of age; that he has lost so much time in con...

Death of the Oldest Newspaper. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 16 January 1914
Doath of the Oldest News paper. The oldest newspaper in the world has come to nn end. This was "The King-Bao," n Chinese paper, which has been in existence for 1500 years. It began about the time that Con stantinople was formed; it dies , when Constantinople seems aboutto • fall. History tells us that the Chi ' nese discovered the compass, gun- • powder, the cantilever bridge, and many other things, ages before Europe. Printing.was another of ; their early arts. The, Chinese mas ' tered the mystery of making and | printing from type a thousand years | before Gutenburg invented printing in Europe, and the King-Bao was I printed when the Romans were still I in Britain. We may be sure that "The King Bao" did not contain a : report ot the Roman invasion,.for China never heard of Rome, and , Rome never heard of China. Per haps the paper will come to life | again.
