SWEETS MAKE YOU GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

SWEETS MAKE YOU GOOD. The amount of sugar eaten every year by the average British family has in the last six years increased steadily from 364 pounds to 417. Dur ing the same period the number of po lice-court convictions for petty offen ces, particularly drunkenness, has been sinking. Sir James Crichton Browne, the famous scientist, has re cently declared that there is a strong connection between the two facts. The increase in the consumption of sugar is almost entirely on the part of men and largely in the form of sweets. In tea shops frequented by clerks it has been noticed that the £jugar bill keeps steadily rising, and it is no longer looked at as "molly coddlish' for a man to have the "sweet habit." The scientific explanation Is that the craving for sugar is very similar to that of alcohol. Women as a sex take very little alcohol, and so have always had a craving for sweet things. A wave of that craving is now pass ing over the other sex, which1 means a corresponding decline i...

WHAT A WOMAN CAM DO.. She can do more in a minute than; a man can do in an hour, and get. along first-rate; and no two men can do that. She can sharpen a lead pencil if you give her plenty of time and plenty of pencils. She can safely stick fifty pins ia hor dress while a man is getting ona under his thumb nail. She can appreciate a kiss from hetf husband seventy-five years after the' marriage ceremony is performed. She can come to a conclusion with out the slightest trouble of reasoning on it; and rro sane man can do that. She can dance all night In a pair of shoes two sizes too small for her, and enjoy every minute of the time. She can walk half the night with a-- , squalling baby in her arms without once expressing the desire of murder ing the infant. She is cool as a cucumber in half a dozen tight dresses and skirts, while a man will sweat and fume and growl' in one loose shirt. She can talk as sweet as peaches and cream to the woman she hates, while two men would be punching ea...

Studied Politeness. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

Studied Politeness. . Atlantic captains of the older school were a hardened and humorous lot of navigators, and many a story of their eccentricities survives them. One in particular of an old captain seeing the terror of the junior officer during that nervous ordeal of treading the bridge for the first time with him. This particular old dalt, aftt;r a pain ful silence, turned to the young man and said,, "I .like you : T'm very much impressed by you. I've heard a lot about you; in fact, my dear sir, I should like to have your photograph. You skip down and get it." The" nervous and delighted youttii rushed off to his cabin and Informed his brother officers of the compliment the old man had just p?.id him. He yras in luck's way, and. ran gaily up on to the bridge,-presented his photo graph, blushing modestly, to the old ealt. ? " (Jmph! Got a r.ln with you?" "Ye-es, sir." "Ah, see! I pin you on to the can vas here. I can look at you there and address you. You can go, sir, your photogra...

DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

DUMMY SUCKERS MAKE SMOKERS. A school medical officer has made the interesting announcement that, in his experience, those school-boys who are in the habit of sucking the end of their penB and pencils are almost al ways boys who, when babies, were kept constantly supplied with a dummy or comforter. The habit formed in babyhood has stuck. Ho adds that, as far as he is able to ascertain, pen and pencil chewing boys usually turn into inveterate amok- j ers at a later age. In the great ma- j jor.<ty of cases heavy smokers really j picked up the habit in the cradle, by acquiring a craving for holding some- ' thing in their mouths to suck at. It is this craving, too, that, accord int; to some psychologists, accounts for the feminine liking for sweets, far more than for a fondness for sweet things in themselves. If it is possible to guess of a heavy smoker that his mother kept him quiet on a dummy, there are other adult habits that tell something of the baby days of their possess...

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

SLEEP-ITS VALUE. Sleep, nature's most potent medi cine! How it brings peace to the troubled, rest to the weary, and roses to the cheeks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till thr morrow. But sometimes the moment the head reaches the pillow seems to be the signal for each individual worry and care to present itself like an aveng ing angel. These mighty companions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-hand with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, and dark circles under the eyes that speak more plainly than words. When the system is depleted the physician prescribes a tonic which prevents the further wasting of tis sues, and creates an appetite, which is the foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and fill us with vim for future exertions. As there is no ironclad rule governing the amount of food required, neith...

A WAR SPECIAL'S VIGIL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

A WAR SPECIAL'S VIGIL. Some of the most uncomfortable hours of my life (said Mr. . Donahoe, the war correspondent) were passed in a Chinese inn on the road from Autung to Fenghwangeheng. Soon after I fell asleep I was awak ened by feeling a heavy weight across my legs. It was a Chinese muleteer, who had endeavored to make himself comfortable by using me as a pil low. A vigorous movement on my part landed him on the earthen floor, where he arrived muttering impreca tions, as I suppose. 1 was hardly prepared for what fol lowed. Searching amongst his tatter ed bags, he drew out a broad-bladed knife, the edge of which, with his eyes fixed on me, he proceeded to test with his thumb. He may not have Intended any harm, but I i'elt it was my turn to make a counter demonstration. Drawing my revolver, I loaded it os- , tentatiously under his very nose. Then I held it ready cocked. The Chinese viewed these proceed ings In apparently unmoved calm. He still Bat on the floor watching me with his ...

CROSSING THE CONTINENT STUART EXPEDITION ANNIVERSARY. INTERVIEW WITH A SURVIVOR. Last week was celebrated the 52nd annl/ersary of the hoisting of the Union Jack in Chambers Bay, on the north shore of Australia, by that gal lant exploration leader, John Mc Douall Stuart, and his bravo band of nine companions. It was Stuart's last expedition. All the party are dead now except two-Mr. J. W. Bil liatt, who resides in the picturesque retreat at Mount Ranford, Exeter, Eng land, and Mr. Stephen King, of Ken sington, South Australia, who is Mr. Billiatt's brother-in-law. Since the jubilee celebration which was com memorated by a banquet in the,_, Ade laide Town I-Iall on July 25, 1912 three of Stuart's band have passed away. In his book "Explorers of Austra lia," Ernest Fa venae graphically tells the story of the expedition:-"On the 24th of July Stuart turned a little to tho north-east and travelled along it to the mouth of the Adelaide River. He told only two of the party of the eventful m...

Had Observed It. There had been a brilliant company at the home of a society leader-a woman whose husband, while a very worthy man, was noted for his wealth than for his mental attainments. "Well, John," she said, after the laBt visitor had gone, and they sat down to talk it over, "it was a complete success, wasn't it?" ' , "Yes," replied the husband. "Did you notice Professor Much-* man?" "He was the man with the bandage around his neck, wasn't he?" "Yes. You heard him talk* didri't you?" VOh, yes! I heard him." "What an astonishing vocabulary he has!" "Well, that may be what it is." said John, doubtfully, "but from the way he held his head I should judge it was a carbuncle."

CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

CHAPTER VI. Madame Ninon Desterre. Most of the houses in Park Gardens are small, and possess no gardens in the true sense of the word, but Num ber 4 differs from the rest, inasmuch as It stands . in its own 'compact grounds overlooking Regent's Park, 1 ani therefore in summer presents an outlook reminiscent of sylvan shades in tlif1 heart of a peaceful woodland country. '. At one time the house had belonged fo a rumpus artist, with" an income equal to his refined extrava gances. and the whole place had been remodnlletl 'accordin.? to his designs. At his death the house, with all de corations and furniture complete, had ; been offered, for sale and was prompt- j ly secured by the present owner,! known to her friends as Madame , Ninon Desterre.

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

CHAPTER V. A Second Miniature. Gllray nodded and walked as far as the inner consulting-room, where the telephone was placed. He was vaguely asking himself who this Here path was who wished to spealc to him so urgently. The name was oddly familiar, and yet for the moment he could not recalli where he had heard it. It seemed in some way to be directly concerned, with the stirring events of the past few hours. But then there had been so much to think about and, in any case, what did it really mat ter? Probably Herepath was no more than a casual patient who would see him to-day and would be gone to-mor row. There were hundreds of such, each regarding his or her own parti cular case as being of the first im portance. And yet Gllray was an noyed because , for the moment he could , not place the name. He .took off the receiver and made the usual signal that he was there. "Is that Doctor Everard Gilray?" a voice asked. '"Oh; yes, I am Mr. Geoffrey Herepath speaking. We have met before at on...

LIVING IN LUXURY. ENGLISH LADIES AND ,THEIR PETS. Dogs worth their weight in gold were exhibited at the Pekinese show in Chelsea, and some of the sights to be seen there inspired the "Daily News" to the following outburst: "It is difficult to read without phy sical nausea the accounts published of the Pekinese Dog SJiow at Chelsea. Roman society in its' most decadent days would have nothing to fear from comparison with these ladies and their pets. , Caligula made his horse a senator; but then Caligula was gen erally recognised by his contemporar ies as quite mad.

SIGNAL-BOX HEROINE. WOMAN LOSES HER HUSBAND BUT SAVES TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

SIGNAL-BOX HEROINE. WOMAN LOSES HER HUSBAND BUT SAVES TRAIN. A story of dramatic heroism, read ing like a tragic melodrama is told in describing the murder of a points man named Poullain whilst on duty on the line from St. Dents to Eper nay, on the main Paris-Chantilly line. Poullain, who was aged 51, lived with his wife and another family in a small cottage close to his signal-box, at Pierrefitte (about 15 miles from Paris), and both of the Poullains were certificated servants of the company. These boxes are only entrusted to tried employes, as the express ser vice by day and night is almost per petual, requiring unceasing vigilance. The work was shared between Poul lain and his wife, and soon after three o'clock in the morning the woman, hearing a cry, ran down, and found her husband lying on the threshold, just able to say, "Help, I am being murdered." Shouting aloud, she began to at tend Poullain, when she heard the semaphore bell, giving warning of the approaching train, and, l...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 12 August 1914

LADIES' LETTER.'' ^ A certain Melbourne business man well known in social circles is chuc kling at a joke against himself played upoji him by his son-a good-looking youth who earns a not princely wage In a city office. One day the young man casualiy acquainted his father with his intention of taking to him self a wife in the immediate future. "Pray, what do, you intend to keep a wife on?" the parent gasped. "I never heard of such folly; no man has a right to ask a woman to marry him until he has a home to offer her." Without entering into details, the young man doggedly adhered to his intention of becoming a benedict-a decision which greatly incensed his father, who informed his offspring of his firm intention of cutting him off with the proverbial shilling. For some days there was a decided cold ness between father and son, after which the graceless youth left home on a visit to a neighboring State, where the lady of his affections hap pened to reside. When the young man returned t...
