YAWNING FOR GOOD HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
YAWNING FOR GOOD HEALTH. According to most o£'our books on etiquette it is very improper to yawn; but from the standpoint of beaith it is one of the best things we can do. For one thing, a yawn ventilates the lungs. When you take an ordin ary breath the lungs are not complete ly filled, nor are they thoroughly emp tied by an ordinary respiration. There is a certain quantity of air left in the lungs always—what physiologists call "residual air." This air in time becomes foul and affects the blood, and through the blood the nervous centres. Then at certain times certain nerves get tickled, as it were, and the result is a long-drawn-out yawn, which has the power of stretching the lungs to their fullest extent, driving out all the foul air and" drawing in a supply of fresh, pure air. Yawning, too, is beneficial to your hearing. When you give an extra big yawn you hear a cracking sound in side your bead. That is due to tbe stretching and opening of certain tubes which connect the ear and...

Why She Came. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
Why She Came. Mr. D. and his friend Mr. A. shared a sitting-room at the house of stout old Mrs. Smith. All went on nicely for some weeks. But somehow one wet night the land lady had provoked good Mr. A. to fury, which ended in his telling her to "go to the devil." Mrs. S. was greatly shocked, and in her grief the woman appealed to Mr. D. "What did you do, Mrs. Smith?" he asked, smiling. "Why, sir, I—I—why, I just came straight to you," she replied tear fully.
To Him Who Waits. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
To Him Who Waits. Jack and Kitty had not been mar ried very long. A few days ago they went together on a shopping expedi tion to the land of frills an dfrocks. "Now, dearie, 1 shan't be long," said Kitty, as they entered the em porium. "You sit in this comfort able chair and wait while I match these two samples of ribbon." Jack duly sat in the furnishing de partment and Kitty disappeared in the nether regions. "Have I kept you long, my poor dear?" asked Kitty, airily, on her re turn. _ "Oh, I haven't minde da bit," came the reply. "I just jumped on a car and went to the cricket match; then I had some tea, and went for a ride on Fred's new motor-car. Did you match your ribbons?" "One of them, dearest. But it's so provoking! I shall have to come again, for they're just closing the shop."
Off His Guard. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
Off His Guard. Among the members of a fashion able country club are a doctor and a minister, who delight in the exchange of repartee touching their respective professions. As they met one day, the minister observed that he was "going to read to old Thomson," adding, as he was aware that the old man was a pa tient of his friend the doctor. "Is he much worse?" With the gravest of expressions the physician replied. "He needs your help more than mine." 0)f his guard, the minister ex claimed: "Poor fellow! Is it as bad as that?" "Yes," was the reply; "he is suf fering from insomnia!"
A KINGSTON ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
A KINGSTON ROMANCE. The wedding which recently took place at the Kew-road Wesleyan Church, Richmond, between Miss E. J. Chesswas and Mr. Thomas Tame, of Bournemouth, had a romantic story associated with it. Forty years ago Mr. Tame was an assistant in a chemist's shop at ■Kingston, and Miss Chesswas also lived in the town, at the home of her grandparents. The two became ac quainted through taking part in work at the Kingston Wesleyan Church, and they became engaged to be mar ried. ' The parents of the lady, however, would not consent to the engage ment, and as a result the lovers se parated, apparently for ever. Mr. Tame left Kingston and settled in Bournemouth, where he" ultimately became a member of the corporation. He married and brought up a fam ily, but two years ago his wife died. Last year his daughter, who had been taking care of the home, married, and ■went to live at Surblton. It >was then that Mr. Tame learnt that his first sweetheart was still single; and the two met,...
MIS-FIRE! [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
MIS-FIRE! Mr. A. R. Hope-Moncrieff, who has just published an interesting book "About Authors," tells this story about a Fleet-street journalist. The journalist's hatter, who was pressing for the payment of a fairly heavy bill, hinted that if his business establishment were mentioned in an article in the paper with which the journalist was connected the debt would be cancelled. The journalist said he would try, so he went home and wrote an amusing article about "Hats," beginning with prehistoric times, and artfully work ing round to the present day, so as to bring in his creditor's name. This article he kept by him till, as will sometimes happen in a newspaper office, an article had to be cancelled at the last minute and he was aslted to fill the vacant column. Immediately he produced his article on "Hats." The editor said it would do, and the article was sent to press. Ne,xt day the journalist called on Ins hatter, who received him with a scowl and wanted to know why he had, in his...
REMARKABLE INSECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
REMARKABLE INSECTS. The most valuable faculty possess ed by insects is their sense of smell. Most insects hear very poorly, and ants in particular are absolutely deaf. With all their batteries of eyes bul ging in every direction, these crea .tures do not seem to enjoy very good eyesight. Some of the flying insects cannot see well enough to avoid ob stacles which to them should look as big as a barn. But when it comes to the sense of smell the insect world is far ahead of any animal. Fabre, the great French entomologist, confined some female butterflies in a steel cage far from the natural haunts of the insects. To his surprise males of the species came from miles a^ay and lit on the screen. He then confined the females in hermetically-sealed jars, and placed them near places frequented by the males. Not one paid any attention, though the females were visible through the glass. To make sure that the sense of smell was the guiding force, Profes sor Fabre brought out some bits of paper...
WOMAN AGAINST WOMAN. Why the Sex Treats Its Sisters with Contumely Though It Loves Them at Heart. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 7 January 1915
WOMAN AGAINST WOMAN. Why the Sex Treats Its Sisters with Contumely Though It Loves Them at Heart. By Dorothy Dix. One of the most curious things in the world is the latent antagonism that women show toward members of their own sex. . Of course, this is a matter of in heritance and tradition, bred-in-the bone sort of feeling that is the re .suit of woman's age-long struggle for a husband. Her bread and butter, her position in society, her interest in life depended upon her capturing some male who would furnish her with a home, and throw the glamor of his name about her, and so every woman's hand was against every oth er woman's, and she regarded every other woman who crossed her path with jealousy and suspicion. Now that woman has become self supporting, and marriage has become less alluring to her fancy than a career, she still cannot rid herself of this prejudice against her own sex handed down to her in her very blood from her foremothers. It has become what Darwin calls an ac qui...

WHEN AN AUSTRIAN EMPEROR DIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915
WHEN AN AUSTRIAN EMPEROR DIES. When an Austrian Emperor has to be buried, the body is, of course, ac companied by a grand military es cort. - On arriving at the place of bur ial the gates are found locked, and the chief of the escort demands ad mission. The clerical chief demands the name of the dead, whose titles are then given in full. "God knows no such person," is the clerical reply; upon which the baptismal names of the deceased are given, and then the gates are thrown open, and the ceremony proceeds. Mistress: .Tane, I've found my best silk petticoat in your box! Jane: 'Ave yer, mum? And you thought you had lost it! Fancy that? The Phrenologist: Yes, sir; by feeling the bumps on your head I can tell exactly what sort of man you are. Son of Erin: Oi belave it wad give ye -more av an idea phwhat sort of a woman me woife is. A bigamist is a man who is so fond of looking for trouble that he looks for it twice.
DEAF PERSONS CAN HEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 14 January 1915
DEAF PERSONS CAN HEAR. That the deaf can really hear and do-hear, but in a different way from ordinary people, is a fact that few persons who are not deaf under stand. Stanley Robinson, who be came deaf at the age of ten, tells in the "Scientific American" just how they do it. Not only do the deaf hear sounds, but they are often greatly annoyed by them. They feel sounds through the concussion on the diaphragms of their ears and the vibrations reach the brain, according to Mr. Robinson, through the nerves of feeling rather than by way of the auditory nerves. A deaf man feels the motion of a passing truck through the vibration it causes on the pavement. He does not feel the passing of a rubber tyred vehicle on an asphalt pave street, because this causes no vibra tions. He feels the footsteps of a horse if near by and not on the soft earth. He does not hear a stamp upon stpne pavement unless it is quite close to him. "A deaf mute," says Mr. Robinson, "will be conscious of all the noise...
