On one occasion ho walked to lue ve randa and actually trod on a cob ra that was sitting up ready to slrike. J/c expected every minute to feel the deadly fangs, and wondered why it delayed, when, looking round, he noticed his cat crouching and gazing at the reptile with mes meric elTect, for it seemed unable to move, and white in this condition he killed it. Another time, when sleeping on an open cot in the ve randa, he woke to find on one side of the bed a huge cobra, with head erect, ready to strike, on the other the glistening green eyes of his cat. The snake remained quite still, so he ran into the room to fetch a gun, and, coming hack, poked the reptile's head with the barrel, but it did not take the slightest notice, and seemed like a stufred and lifeless creature.

Why to Shun Banisters. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 29 January 1914

Why to Shun Banisters. 1 If wo expect to avoid coming in. contact with all sorts of dreaded disease germs, wc should avoid catching hold of the stair banis ters on tlu» stairway where people of every walk of life are passing hourly.' We naturally slide our hand up or down the banister as ji moans of support or protection, but by so doing we are placing oursel ves in much greater danger. Caretakers of all public build ings should be compelled to keep the stair banisters as clean as pos sible. A carbolic, wash or other antiseptic should be used. In school buildings the stairways should be made in such a manner as to^ avoid the banister. .Iron railings or banisters are more sanitary than wooden ones, and easier to keep clean. Jtrass ones (ire worse than wood. Lifts have killed a few people, but at the same time t hey have saved the lives of thousands in permitting people («» go up and down in great structures without heitig al most compelled to run their hands through a coat of disease...

THE SUN AS DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 29 January 1914

THE SL'X AS DOCTOIi. The reall.v wonderful power of heal ing: to be found in the rays of the sun has just, recently been brought to general notice, especially in con nection with tuberculosis. Clinics situated among the Alps have been organised for some 30 veors nov, and the results enable their direc tors to affirm that the treatment, helio-therapcuties, or "sun-healing," as it is aptly named, will cure ex ternal forms of tuberculosis in every variety and at all nges. The direct action of th«* sun and fresh air is proved to reduce pain, kill micro bes, and conduce to the growth of new skin. The sun buth, according to Dr. Rollier, of Levsiu, may bo indulged in equally well during nil seasons of the year. The whole body is bathed in sunshine, little by little, until the patient can stand six or eight hours' exposure win ter or summer. Gradually the skin gets brown, in some cases it. be comes very deeply coloured, even chocolate. This pigmentation is an important point. Dr. liollier s...

WHAT IS A MEAT SUBSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 29 January 1914

WHAT JK A MIC AT SUBSTITUTE. It must always be borne in mind that while a person is well and active the same relative amount of food is needed by the body through out the year, and the dilYerence be tween winter and summer diet lins not in quantity so much as in judi cious substitution. The term "meat ; substitute" is by no means gener ally understood. Only too often it is interpreted as meaniug any food which is not sweet, and that, is bulky enough to fill the stomach. The housewife who is ignorant of food, value is therefore liable to starve her family, not through lack of food but through lack of correct food. Meat is heating because it con tains certain stimulating juices, is a "quick fuel," and during assimi latiou causes a greater breaking down of tissue than any other food. A meat substitute contains all the elements of moat without being sti mulating or heating. Under this heading may be mentioned eggs, cheese, nuts, fish, and milk. Ii; place of meat they may ail be ser ved,...
