FILLING IN A WORD. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 31 July 1914
FILLING IN A WORD. In the course of conversation it frequently happens that the man who is speaking to you hesitates a mo ment for a word. The temptation to supply the mis sing word is great, but it is not one tliat should be indulged. In fact, it :s considered a matter of ill-breeding to "help a person out" with his re marks. 1 Although the word may bo perfect ly obvftjue, and one that you know that your friend hns in his mind, but cannot at the moment get his Longufr round, you should restrain the impulse to say it for him. It is much more complimentary to let him -suppose tkat hip remark is not an obvious one, and that the lost word does not occur to you any more than it does to him. "There's one thing 1 dr.u't like about Drown." "What is that?" "Why, ttic confounded, low-brov/eJ, half-baked idiot is alwayu calling somebody names." , ,\

What Dyspeptics Should Know. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 31 July 1914
What Dyspeptics Should Know. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY ADVICE. The fact tbat few dyspeptics really understand the cause ol tbeir trouble is probably the reason why drugs are. still used to such an alarming extent. The practise is wrong, however, and is strongly condemned by many physicians. The presence of excess. acid in the stomach is the cau e of practi cally all forms of digestive trouble, and this can. be neutralised and rendered harmless by the occasional use of ordinary bisurated magnesia —a product which can be obtained from any chemist Physicians use bisurated magnesia themselves as well as recommend it .to their, patients, because they recognise that it not only overcomes danger ous stomach acid and thus.ensures easy digestion, but by its use no harmful drug is introduced into the syste.n and therefore there can be 110 unpleasant after-effects. Half a teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals is usually quite suffi cient to keep the food contents of the stomach free from fe...
