THE LAST DAYS OF POMPE[?]. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 2 May 1914

r-' ,THE IjAST DAYS OF POMPEII. ( Concluded.") Greyly, broke forth the las't clay of Pompeii. The air was uncom monly calm and sultry; a thin and dull mist gathered over the broad Campanian fields. The cloud that had rested so long on Vesuvius had suddenly vanished. Arbaces had a fearful dream—a voice came from a serpent that bore the face of Apuc-1 cides (the murdered man) and rang in his reeling ear : " Thy victim is thy judge: the woman thou would.st crush becomes the serpent that de destroys thee." As he awakes the Saya of Vesuvius enters. ''Listen to me," she says, "some evil hangs over the city. Fly while it is yet time. I distinctly heard last night Vesuvius shake and tremble, and when I awoke tliie morning I saw fragments of stone floating over a lurid stream. Be warned, and fly.'1 The wonderful scenes in the arena are here shown in all their pomp and brutality. The gladiators, the chariots, the wonderful multitudes of people looking for their amuse ment. Lydon's two great f...

HIGH ART PHOTOGRAPHY DISPLAY. High art photographs In every sense of the term aptly doacribea the new exhibit which is now being offered to the public at . the famous studio of Richards and Co. Tho whole scheme of (heir spacious window has been remodelled and the general vordict, we feel assured, will be that a decided improvement in the effective display of each subject has been ob« tained. The picbures themselves arc quite ap to tho high degree of artistlo excellence, for which the firm ot Richards and Oo, has gained world fame. The large central studieB are again & triumph, and collaboration ot the artist, photographer and colorist. The most prominent is a life siee head study of a lovely little hoy. The beantiful carle and chubby face of the litbln chap needed only the warm flesh tones to almost make the pictaro live. Very fine is the companion picture, a young girl gatheriug wood violete. This is again a fine achievement, the expression of the face being realistic, andv...

THE BUILDING OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 5 May 1914

• THE BUILDING OF LIFE. ' Instead of saying man is the crea ture ot circumstances it would be near er the truth to say that man Is the architect of circumstances. It is character which builds an existence out of circumstances. Our strength is measured by our plastic power. From the same material one man builds palaces, another hovels, one ware houses, another villas. Bricks and mortar are mortar and bricks until the architect can make them some thing else; thus it is that in the same family, in similar circumstances, one man rears a stately edifice, while his brother, vacillating and incompetent, lives for ever amid ruins; the block of granite whicli was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak becomes a stepping-stone in the pathway of tlu strong. An American who was visiting Dull lin told some remarkable stories about the height of some of the buildings ir New York. Presently an Irishman who ha<' listened till his patience was exhaust ed broke in: "You haven't seen our ne...

A physician has recently called atten tion to the use of water not only as a remedial' and therapeutic agent, hut also as a mechanical agent, in the treatment of certain forms of dyspep sia, especially those forms character ised By a fulness in the left epigas tric region, with frequent eructations of sour anil acrid matter, accumpanled by loss of appetite and insomnia. Wc give his method for what it is- worth, which is as follows: — Let the patient drink from one to two pints (or more) o£ water one hour before each meal, and then comfort ably seat himself in an easy' rocking chair, and rock backward and forward for half an hour. The rooking will agitate the water in the stomach, wash the walls completely, detaching any mucus that may be adhering, and di lute and mix the contents thoroughly. By this means absorption will be more rapid, and as a consequence the skin, kidneys and bowels will act more free ly, eliminating from the blood uric acid and all eff...
