FAMILY DOCTOR SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

FAMILY DOCTOR SECRETS. It is a mistake to suppose that we doctors are only consulted In illness or upon medical subjects merely, said a, physician to the writer. The family doctor, who has, per haps, attended the father and grand father before them, is regarded as a friend of the houseb;Id, and his ad vice Is sought i. tnnany serious cases. Secrets are sometImes confided to the family doctor that. would not be en trusted to the famnly 'solcitor. In one instance where the nephew of a deceasdd shipowner forged a will, dlvertlng to Tlmself £30,000, the facts were laid before the famIly phy siclan, who, by prompt negotiation .with the relatives, averted criminal proceedings. A celebrated West End physician, during many years' practice among the nobility, has had confided to him some of the most important secrets of the land. Some time ago, by his Ju diclous advice, £20,000) was paid to stop breach of promise proceedinge against a well-known nobleman, and this would have draggedl some of...

THE MINER'S RAT. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

THE MINER'S RAT. During a recent inquiry into an ac cident on one of the Rand mines, an old miner giving evidence was asked: "You refused to work at this place: why? Did you notice anything wrong?" He replied: "No, sir, tut I knew the ground must be bad; the rats were all leaving It" - Except among miners, few people on the Rand appreciate the old sailors' belief that "rats desert a sinking ship" is Just as strongly held by old miners. Spoken to a few days ago, one n.ilner said: "All old miners know that rats will never stay where there is caving ground. Old miners will always tell you that, whether they come 'rom England. Australia. or America. W'hen an old miner notices that the rats are going, he always tries to find out what is wrong. If he can't, he generally has enough sense to get out himself." Rats are to be found in very large numbers in all old workings on the Reef; their forbears probably went be low originally in boxes of candies or other stores. Miners never kill these ...

EVERYDAY HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

EVERYDAY HEROES. The bugle calls to action, and the sound Of martial music thrills the soldier's heart. The tramp of feet, the roar of mus ketry. Are living things invwhlch he hears a part And so he marches on at duty's call, Unheeding scarce the foe or danger near; So thrilled he with the panoply of war HIls heart, though craven, kioweth not a fear. But in the common, quiet walks of life, No drum or bugle sounds the earn est call; - No cheer awaits the victor if he rise. No marble keeps his memory If he falL The plodding, grinding work from day to day To gain the needful bread by which we live, And furnish sinews strong for daily toll. Doth merit better meed than what we give. Not only on the crimson battlefield Is manly courage, manly vigor shown.

DOES DRINKING WATER CAUSE APPENDICITIS? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

DOES DRINKING WATER CAUSE APPENDICITISt? Startling thoegh the theory may at first seem, It is nevertheless serious ly advanced by eminent physicians that appendicitis, particularly anmong children, may be due to the water drinking habit. The first scientist to suggest this was Dr. H. Mleurisse, of Paris, who was much impressed with the significance of a number of facts regarding appendicitis recently eub mitted to the Paris Medical Society. These show a high percentage of cases of the disease among children who drink water only. On the other hand, brothers and sisters of th~ese same children who are allowed to drink light wine with tl eir meals show a singular freedom from appendicitis and other intestinal troubles. Although Dr. 3feurisse ad. mits that there may have been other causes which helped to give these children appendicitis, the fact that they drink water exclusively with their meals, while the other membars of the family took light wine, makes him doubt whether water-drink...

BURNING BANK NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 19 August 1914

BURNING BANK NOTES. A bank-note's life averages sixty three days. Once the Bank of Eng land recevfres a note back from the pub. lie it is never put into circnlation again. The moment it Is accepted across the counter the cashier's sig nature is torn off, and it Is automatic ally cancelled. At the end of one day a heap of si?gnatures wefIghing twenty pounds has somtimes accumulated. The mutilated notes are kept at the bank for flie years. and are then burnt in a furnace This expensive bonfire consumes 420.000 notes per week, and the five years' supply of redeemed notes waiting to be burnt totals about 90.000.000.

THE MAN OF THE FUTURE. How the Human Form Is Being Altered. There are no perfectly formed peo ple living in the civillsed portions of the world to-day. The only perfectly formed men and women are said to he foundl among the ahoriginal races, and they are perfect because they do not wear tight-itting clothes, corsets, and boots to push their bodies out of shape.

F. le Double, Professor of iMedicine at Tours, the man of the future will have a larger head, fewer teeth, andl short er arms than the man of the present day. Thle Professor tells us that among the Drimitive races of Australia it is not uncommon to fin(1 natives with thirty-six or even more. teeth; but the white man of the future will bhe fortunate if he possesses twenty-eight.
