A TAX ON FAT PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 15 May 1913

A TAX ON FAT PEOPLE. A small French town in the Pyre neen district has struck a novel way to increase the revenue from taxa tion. The ordinary channels not bringing enough to carry out certain projected improvementasi the mllnict pal counclh decided to place a tax on the physical weight of the citizens, arranging the following scheme : Ile low 1351b., no tax ; from 1351b. to 2001b., 12a. annually Is demanded ; from 2001b. to 2701b., 188. i for . all weights above this figure the tax in creases at the rate of 24s. for each 201h. Trouble came when the local autho rities tried to collect the tribute. Most of the fat people formed a com mattee to appeal to the prefect, who represents the federal authority in the district. Thus a stay was gained. But it appenrars probable that the town could put into execution the new law if it should tight the case in the courts. Most of the opposition came from the women, who held meetings and torch-light processions to signify their opposition to the ...

HEATING THE BANK OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 15 May 1913

HEATING THE BANK OF ENU LAND. The Bank of England, says the 'Gas World,' has been iitted with a system of central heating and hot water supply, which is one of the largest and most complete pri vate installations in England. The heating is eflected by means of hot-water pipes and radia tors, and as the building covers an area of two and a hall acres the cir culation will be accelerated by clec trically-driven pumps,' so that the radiators at the extreme points of the system will be practically as hot as those close to the boilers: ' Altogether there are about six hun dred of these radiators and they are supplied from six boilers, soma of which can be cut off when the wea ther conditions do not requiro the whole power. The hot-water system also extends over the entire building, and hot water may he drawn at any point where a tap is fixed.

TO PREVENT SEA-SICKNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 15 May 1913

TO PREVENT SEA-SICKNESS. -4---- It has often beon said, and with truth, that there is a fortune await lag the man who-discovers an unfail ing remedy for sea-sickness, for at present there is no certain cure, and those who are desirous of taking a sea-trip are often prevented from do ing so by fear of this distressing mal ady. Those who are bold enough to make the attempt, however, may ap preciate a few hints on the proven tion of sea-sickness. It is a mistake to fast before a voyage. Take a good meal, avoiding indigestible things; but remember that over-eating, quite as much as going without food, increases the chance of sickness. Change your habits, particularly with regard to meal times, as little as possible during the voyage. When you go on board ship, especially if it be a chilly day, be warmly clad, and take a rug with you to keep your feet and legs warm. Find a sunny spot on deck, as far from the engine-room and kitchens as possible, and recline full-length on a firmly-placed...
