CAUSES ATEATÏN8 S»F APPETITE DEPRESSION LANGUOR "NINE-TENTHS of human ailments are traceable lo slomack, liver and bowel troubles," declared a leading medical authority, awhile ago, and medical experience all over the world confirms his statement. Picture the misery undigested, or badly digested, food causes. If the stomach is out of order, fermentation is often set up. You experience the discomforts of flatulence, pains after eating, acidity, heartburn, depression and languor. , Sometimes the action of the bowels is slow. Thc waste material of food is not got rid of regularly, as it should be. Constipation-the frequent cause of languor, headache, impure blood, sallow skin-has you in its grip. To save you from the miseries described, there is no better safeguard than Mother Seigel's Syrup, the stomachic and diges tive remedy famous for nearly half a century. Its remarkable efficacy depends, not upon any one ingredient, but upon the medicinal extracts of nearly a dozen different kind...

REMEMBER, THIS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919

REMEMBER, THIS. A little dry mustard rubbed on thc hands will remove the smell of fish from them. To removo dirt from white paint, usu the water in which two or three onions nave been boiled. Add a pinch of salt to apples to make them tender. They will cook in less time and will taste better. To prevent eggs from bursting while boiling, prick one end with a needle before placing in the water. A good method of removing tanin Stains from teacups is to make a mix ture with salt and strong acetic acid. Apply this with a cloth, ¡ind after tho stain is bleached out the cups should bo washed and dried in the ordinary way.

SHIPS AND THE WAR [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919

SHIPS AND THE WAR Tho London "Economist" (Nov. 9), presents the principal figures of the ef fect of tho war upon British shipping in a hrief and intelligible form. In July, 191-1, tho gross tonnage was 18.S92,0o0. The losses from all causes, chiefly war perils, total 8,810,000, or 47.36 per cent. New construction, pur chases and enemy tonnage captured and used amounted to a gross tonnage of 5,4-13,000. At the end of September 'thc net deficiency was 3,503,OCO cross .tons. Submarining has ceased, and new I construction is doubtless being accel erated through the reduced or sus pended call for war vessels, so that the deficiency will shrink from month to month. Wien the war was very* near its end, the Allies and neutrals, accord ling to our London contemporary, were building more than twice as fast a* I the United Kingdom. But Canada is IA promising shipbuilder, and Austra lia and New Zealand have ambitions in that direction, which they arc try ing to bring into practical realisation,...

DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919

DIET. ! Most persons in good health will do best to reduco the total daily ration rather than any special lino of food, in all probability. Potato once n day is plenty for anyone. Very few need meat, fish or eggs, moro than once a day, and no ono needs these for more than twd meals a day. Two meals a day is a good plan for thoso who do not need a large quantity of food, those who do no hard, muscular work, provided the digestión is good. This is not a good plan for those with weak digestions. Itemember that over-rating is virtually nlways .duo to rapid eat ing. Eat slowly, and chew all food well, and you will'cat less and digest moro of what you do eat. Remember that tho move vegetable food yon cat, especially the moro green foods, the more waste there is to get rid of: hence the oftener tho bowels mus» move. "With a strictly vegetarian dief this would mean three times .1 dav. j Finally, vraember that the nerds <.' I each member of the family ns to food j .-.rc difieren-....

SOIL FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919

SOIL FACTS. I Soil in its natural state contains five classes of substances, viz., mineral matter from rocks, organic matter from decayed plants, water from thc air, gases and bacteria from decayed vegetable matters chiefly. Tho soil is a living mass of bacteria-several mil lions in a cubic inch, and unless treat ed properly, these, tho smallest of all living things, ennnot do their work. Dead leaves, roots, farmyard manure, aro acted upon by tho oxygen gas in tho air, which causes them to burn and so decay. From this process carbonic acid is produced, which in its turn acts upon tho fine pieces of rocks and produces a plant food from them. The soil must be free and open if tho oxy gen is to do its work, and tho best re sidís obtained. If tho air cannot get into the soil freely and vegetable mat ter is decaying, sourness in the soil is the result. Tho addition of lime, tho kiii^ of soil constituents, lias the effect of hastening-by burning-de cay. If applied to a sticky clay soil it...
