FOOD FOR OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914
FOOD FOR OLD AGE. The mere fact of our gradually los iny our teeth as we become old should show the necessity of decreasing the quantity of such loods as require mas tication. With advancieng ago the whole digestive apparatus becomes weakened and the organs are no longer abloe to deal with large quantities of material. For this reason old people should never eat heavy or abundant moals ' The amount of nourishment should be spread out over the day very much as in the eass of an infant, who must be fed more frequently than an adult, because he can only take a small quantity at a time. Old people really do not require any great amount of food. Unlike time baby who is grow ing every day, they are shrinking. They can no longer take much physical ex ercise, though it is important that what little exereisa they can take should be kept up. They cannot work beyond some very light occupation, and therefore they do not need much food for the renewal of tissues. They should have very light, nou...
Hospital Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914
Hospital Sunday. The Friendly Societies' commit- I tee met on Friday night last. The annual collection totalled £100, and it was agreed to forward £85 IOs to the Kilmore Hospital and put £14 10s towards the cottage hospital fund As the collectors' books were out before it was decided to keep 25 p.c., the members of the com mittee did not think they were just fled in taking 25 p.e. from the dis trict receipts nor deduct the per centage from donations of £1 and over. Therefore 25 p.c. was taken from the total receipts in Seymour. Mr A. Skinner was nominated as a life governor from the Friendly So cieties, and Mr M. Leahy as a dis trict life governor.
BUSINESS MEN'S DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 26 June 1914
BUSINESS MEN'S DIET. If one were asked to name the ia ladies from which the town dweller suffers most in comparison with the men and women who live in the coun- try, the list would assuredly begin with indigestion, sleeplessness, and constipa tion. All these are attendant upon city life, its rush, and its conventions. Tate, for example, the first-named, in digestion. The business man begins the day very generally with a heavy breakfast, includ.ng possibly strong coffee. This woukld do him no harm whatever if hlie were going to spend the next few hours as the farmer or country squire generally does, in walk ing er riding. lThe exercise would "work off" the good meal. But the towsmiun hlsteons to a station which is ten minutes' walk distant, or, worse still, gets into a tram that passes his door. Till one o'clock hlie sits still in an atmosphere which is possibly not of the freshest, since his offices are usually in a crowded quarter of the town. Then hlie goes out and takes a meat lu...

"GOD SAVE IRELAND." DEATH OF THE AUTHOR. The author of "God Save Ireland," and probably the only Mayor who was sent to prison in his robes of office, Mr. T. D. Sullivan, died in his home in Dublin in his 87th year. Mr. Sullivan, who was a brother of the late Mr.. A. M. Sullivan, for many years Whip of the Irish party, and the real founder of the Home Rule movement, wrote the song which eventually became the national anthem of patriotic Irishmen the world over in his great indignation at the execu tion of Allen Larken, and O'Brien, the "Manchester Martyrs"-and men wlho went to their death for the part they played in shooting Police-sergeant Brett in the attack on the prison van. Other of Mr. Sullivan's songs which are as sociated with the history of the con tury are "Murty Hynes" and "A Song. from thl Backwoods." The latter was the occasion of a remarkable in cident in the American Civil War. The Federal forces and the Confederates were encamped on opposite sides of the River Potomac...

"All our eggs," he says, "ape going to cost us an average of 3d. per dozen more this season, and even at the higher price I have not been able to get all I could have taken. There is no decrease in the supply, but there has been a consi derably greater demand for general consumption owing to the excessive dearness of meat.

Footbal. SATURDAY'S MATCH1 ES. The third series of matches in the Waranga North-Eastern Association took place on Saturday afternoon last, when the list of matches were as enumerated above. The special train chartered by the Association for the purpose of conveying the travelling teams to their respective destinations was fairly well patron ised. but it is hardly likely that the revenue taken will)be sufficient to cover the amount of guarantee re quired. Results: Murchison (12-15) v. Seymour (5.9) Euroa (5.8) beat Rushworth (1-2) Nagambie (8 6) beat Avenel (7-4) Seymour were not represented by their full strength. on Saturday, when they journeyed to Murchison to try conclusions with the locals. M'Ivor, Powell, Cann, Prince, Gale, Clarkson, Young and Malm berg were among the absentees, and as-these players are practically the pick of the team, it was hardly to be expected that Murchison's colors would be lowered. Seymour, however, put up a gallant stand, the recruits-S.Doyle and O'Ca...

TEACHING OF CINEMA. People who have the cause of edu cation so earnestly at heart as to care nothing at all about my pocket (or yours), have been suggesting lately that the bioscope would make a popue. ]ar substitute for the blackboard in our elementary schools. The ordin ary school curriculum would almost certainly then be extended to include such subjects. as: The Habit's of the Tittlebat, in Peace and War. Pachyderms of the Peloponnesian Peninsula. Half-an-Hour with a Hornet And so on. And knowledge of this kind is not to be exchanged for all the riches of Golconad, as youthfl learners may, in after life, have cc casion to find out for themselves. it is true that large numbers of the male scholars will, mn a few years' tuime, probably be honest British work men, living sturdily on strike pay; while theid sisters will be smahing crockery, agitating for more evenings out, and wondering what to goodness the Old Cat will expect of them next. Still, some of them may want to write ency...
