WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 20 June 1914

WHY BAD TEMPER MAKES YOU UGLY. By a Medical Man. It is said-by many people that,Whilst the art and. science of surgery ad vances by leaps and bounds, the sister science of medicine moves onwards very slowly. This shows lack of know ledge. . It must ~be admitted that sur gery.has made marvellous progress of late years. Things thought impos sible a score, even a dozen years ago are of everyday occurrence now. An . incised wound of the heart has been stitched up, a ruptured bladder sutured, a stomach removed, the large intestine excised, a piece of diseased bone sawn off and a piece of sound bone grafted in its place, and all the patients recovered. But the physicians have not been idle. The researches in embryology, tracing the origin of tissues and the gradual building-up of the more complicated organs, have thrown much-needed light on the most vital phenomena of life. Inquiries into the molecular changes of nerve cells, .the'chemistry of the human body, the activities of certain bac...

CHAPTER m; The Student's Night. It was nearly the end of the sum mer session and the students throng ed the "gods" at the Frivolity in Edinburgh. The manager of this va riety theatre had put "his best foot foremost, and from the wings he watched the seething crowd of fresli young faces. The phalanx of students arrived early, as is their wont, and began by making audible comments on the ad vertisements on the iron curtain. Soon cat-calls resounded through the rapidly-filling house. - "Clementine" and several other masterpieces were rendered, at least with gusto, and at last there arose the cry, "Galbraith! j Galbraith!" from every corner. The audience, turned in their seats and looked up at the animated scene in the gallery. It was a fine thing to be an Edinburgh student! As the iron curtain rose slowly, ...

WHY SURFACE CULTIVATION SAVES MOISTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 20 June 1914

WHY SoriFACE Cbt.TIVATIOft SAVES MOISTURE. That cultivation tends to conserve Soil moisture is now disputed by no one familiar with: the "properties oi the soil or blessed with, the proofs of experience. '.Just why this 1b true 1 shall endeavor to explain briefly. Soils are of different textures, vary ing from gravel through sand and loam to. fine clay, but in all there are many spaces between , the soil particles for air and water. The?e are well filled with tie spring ralus, but during the summer droughts some of the moisture recedes into the ground, while much is evaporated into the air and lost. Now, the problem is to keep this moisture near the sur face, yet not exposed to the drying winds and sun. This Is best done by a mulch or by tillage, which is only a method of securing a mulch of dry. soil. If a dry towel to held in a basin oZ water for a time it vill become wet above the water-line; if a fine glass tube is set in water, the water will rise inside the tube above the leve...

Carpenters, station hands, shearers, farmers, mechanics, miners, timber cut ters, painters, laborers—in fact, all classes of workers—stand in daily need of Zam-Buk's soothing and healing aid. Unless that simple cut, braise, or pinch is properly dressed with Zam-Buk. there is grave danger that inflammation, fester ing, 'or blood-poison will set in.

HCW CAESAFt ALTERED THE CALENDAR. The arrangement of the days' ol oar months is'.due to two Roman Em perors. .Ittiius ami Augustus Caesar. Julius Caesar revised .the calendar, making Uia common year to have 365 •lays, and every fourth year to have 366 days. The clays of the year were distributed among the months, so that the odd months, beginning with Janu ary, had 31 days, and the even months had thirty days, excepting February, which had 29 days in . common years and in leap years had 30 days.

He had his paint brush in his .noiUh, and did not look up, but mum bled : "Look about if you like; don't mind me." The visitor did so, and then camc back, to his original position. Bouton celt annoyed, but with an effort re pressed -his impatience. "Well, how is everybody at home?" he asked. "Oh, nicely, thank you," was the equally laconic reply. ^ "The children are well, i suppose?" . "Oh, perfectly!" The visitor then began to criticise the picture; and when, after a half hour's conversation, the artist turned round, he beheld Louis Philippe, the King of France. Bouton blushed and stammered: "Sire, you are artist king enough to know that I should have lost my tint had I' stopped to display the atelier to your Majesty." "Yes," answered the King, "quite 30.

SUBSTITUTE FOR ASPARAGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 20 June 1914

^ SUBSTITUTE FOR ASPARAGUS. During the early spring In London (says the "Daily Mail") the hop Bhoots, which had just appeared above the ground on Good Friday, grew six and eight inches. At this height or a little more they make a most excel lent green vegetable, cooked like as paragus. Many acres of hops hav£ been grubbed in Kent and Worcestershire. If neighbors transplanted the roots, to their gardens they would have the benefit of a most wholesome and cer tain vegetable. This year, when cab bages and sprouts have been killed in nine gardens out of ten, and are at o prohibitory price, hops should be most welcome. They are proof agains: frost, and will grow again and agair. at an astonishing pace—in very favor able places an inch or two a day. But green vegetables, independent of weather, are becoming much easie; to get.

"Come Over Here." [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 20 June 1914

"Come Over Here." [ Lunatic (looking over the wall of the asylum at a laborer working): [ "This is a fine day, sir." [ Laborer: "It is indeed." Lunatic: "Are you married?" Laborer: "Yes." Lunatic: "How much a week have you?" Laborer: "Only twenty shillings, and I have to support my wife and family on that." Lunatic: "Well, all I can say is that you are on the wrong side of the wall." Religion and Government appear to me the two subjects which, of all others, should belong to the common talk of people who enjoy the blessings of freedom. Messrs.

NO MORE INDIGESTION. :o: WONDERS ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. It seems reasonablet po suppose that in a short time there'Hvift be no more indi gestion or dyspepsia.. The . old style "digestives," such as bismuth, pepsine, charcoal, soda, etc., which afcer all are only temporary in their effects, are rapidly becoming discarded in fa^or of a simple antacid, known to chemists as bisurated magnesia, with the result that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever before. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that,'according to available statistics, over ninety per cent, of all stomach troubles are due to acidity. Bisurated magnesia may readily be ob tained from any chemist at a small cost, and half-a-teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals will immediately neu tralise all harmful acids in the stomach, prevent fermentation, and thus render the food easy of digestion. 584 iMPOElTIUS lis l'HE blood.— " We have seen hosts of letters ...

The following letter from Mrs.' Thomas Brown, of I-Iealesville, Vic., will prove interesting to many of our readers:— "Some time ago I suffered from a severe attack of kidney complaint. The first symptoms were great weak ness and emaciation with terrible pain all over my body, especially across my hack. My whole body was racked with pain, and I could get but little ease day or night. Medicines were prescribed for me, but failed to do me any good. I cared very. little what became of me, I was so weak and miserable. I had nearly given up all hope when a friend advised me to try Warner's Safe Cure. I commenced to take it, and derived great benefit from taking the contents of the first bottle. . I continued jto take the medi cine, getting stronger and better every dry. I soon regained my former strength and energy, the pains left me, and I seemed to have a new lease of life. I am now quite strong and happy."

A WATCHMAKER'S EPITAPH. Lieutenant-Colonel Bennett has dis covered among some old papers the text of a curious epitaph, which reads as follows:— "Here lies in horizontal position the outside case of George itoutledge, Watchmaker, whose ability in his line was an honor to his profession. In tegrity was the mainspring and pru dence the regulator of the actions of his life. Humane, generous, and lib eral, his hands never stopped till he relieved distress. So ^nicely balanced were his movements that he never went wrong, except when set agoing by people who did not know his key. Even then he was easily set right again. He had the art of disposing of his time so well that his hours glided away in one continual round of plea sure and delight, till an unlucky min ute put a period to his existence. He departed this life November 14, 1802, age 57. Wound up in hopes of being taken by his Maker and of being thor oughly cleaned, reparied, and set go ing again in the world to come."
