GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. Another Outburst by the Cantankerous Crank. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
GIRLS, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. Another Outburst by the Cantankerous Crank. Girls, you are doubtless very charm ing in your low-necked blouses, short skirts, and delicious stockings, yet I would fain point out one or two faults which most of you display—and when it comes to display, my cry is: "Les3 stocking and more thoughtfulness." Girls, I don't consider your man ners are as good as thoso of your mothers, ' Mother may wear a petti coat, like they used to in the good old days, and grandma three flannel petti coats, because grandma's petticoats, like misfortunes, never come singly, but both of them aro pollto. Of course, they may have had good be havior spanked into them, but, never theless, it is more than skin deep. It is my misfortuno to travel a good deal in trains and 'buses. You, girls, flaunting your fatal beauty, haunt me in thoso dangerous vehicles, and with that inborn chivalry which lurks in every male bosom, I render you oc casional small services. I open a car riage door for...
Throat Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
Throat Troubles. When doctors talk about the "naso pharyngeal system," they mean the entire mucous membrane that lines the noae and throat, all of which must be in a healthy condition if you wish to avoid the long list of ailments that begins with the common "cold" and ends with tuberculosis, and includes tonsilitiB, influenza, croup, diphtheria, and, last but not least, adenoids. In young children the passages of the uose and throat are very small and very sensitive, and they rospond quickly to every change in the child's physical condition. When a disease germ attacks a sensitive mucous membrane, the membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The immediate result is that the child cannot get breath enough to live on through the nasal passages, and begins to breathe through the mouth. If this happens only occasionally the inflammation soon subsides and the mouth-breath ing stops. But if one cold succeed another, as is the case with many children in tho winter months, the mu-! cous memb...
A Surgeon's Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
A Surgeon'o Revenge. Few things vex a doctor more than to bo sent for in great haste at an unreasonable hour, only to find upon arlval that littlo or nothing 1b the matter with tho pntiont. An eminent English surgeon was called to an "urgent case" ot this sort, and ho found tho patient, who was of groat wealth but small courage, hart received a slight" wound from a fall. Tho surgeon'B face did not betray Ilia irritation, but ho gave his servant or dors to go home with all possible haste, and roturn with a certain plas ter. Tho patient, turning very pale, said anxiously: "I trust, sir, there 1b no groat and Immediate danger?" "Indoed there is," answered tho sur geon. "Why, if that fellow doeB not run like a racehorse, there is no toll ing but that your wound may heal ' before lie gets baoli with tho plaBtor."
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. An obodlont wlfo commands her husband. Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but yourself. Obstinacy is a parasite, living eith er on a strong will or on great stu pidity. Retire into thyself, and thou wilt blush to find how poor a stock is there. A man has no more right to say an uncivil thing than to act one—no rnoro right to say.-a rude thing to an other than to knock him down. Men are like trees; each one must put forth the leaf that is' created in him. Education Is only like good cul ture it changcs the size but not the sort. To know the pains of power we must go to those who have It;, to know its pleasures we must go to those who are seeking it. The pains of power are real, Its pleasures imaginary. In the active and vigorous games and merriment of children there arc tho most health giving conditions that can l;o obtained, bccause they are tho wise combination of exercise and mirth. "Almost" is a dangerous word. It has tripped up many a man who might have b...
DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
DIAMOND MINES IN SOUTH AFRICA. The history of the diamond mines is ono long romance—catastrophes, skilful robberies, and the speedy reali sation of colossal fortunes, the an nual output of the mines averaging several millions of pounds sterling. Early in 18G7 a traveller named O'Rei ly rested a while at a farm in the Hope Town district. His host pre sently brought to his notice some nice looking stones obtained from the riv er. O'Reilly at once pounced upon the first stone, and took it to Dr. G. Atherstone,. at Grahamstown, where it quickly realised £500. This lucky wayfarer hastened back to the spot, but Ills searches were unavailing. Two years after, a farmer named Niekirk acquired from a native^for £400 of stock a large diamond, which sold in Hope Town for £10,000. This famous gem was christened "Star of South Africa," weighed 83 carats, and esti mated to be worth £25,000. The Bui fontein mine was discovered through diamonds being found in the walls of an old native farmhouse. Th...
REASSURANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
REASSURANCE. "Before you ask," she calmly spoke— "Dear, listen to this word; You're not the first man I have loved, Nor second—nay, nor third." "Am I the fourth or fifth," he asked In scorn; "or were there more?" She murmured, "Don't * bo vexed, sweetheart, "For, as I said before, "This love is not my first—but, hark!" - Ho felt her gentle touch— "I promise it will be my last; « "Now—can you say as much?" "You are my darling girl," he cried, And bowed his manly head Upon her hand—"My lovo — my bride!" But—that was all lie said!
UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
UMBRELLA LANGUAGE. To place an umbrella in a rack at a club or a friend's house is a sign that it is about to change owners. To see two walking under ono um brella, the drippings falling on the male shouldor, is a good sign of an engagement, while if the female shoul der catches the drippings wo may safely conclude they are married. An umbrella held in the manner of a golf-club in a main thoroughfare at 1 a.m. is a sign that the glass has risen, but a storm is brewing. An umbrella in "uncle's" window in dicates that someone has had a "rainy" day. The very host thing worth living for is to be of use. The child who is taught this both by precept and ex ample, will never grow up to find time hang heavy on his hands.

Not Worth While. It ia certainly not worth while for anyone to endure Buffering which can be avoided. Pain is really a drain ou vitality. It is Impossible for anyone who suffers from pain to be as ef ficient as if pain were absenj,.

POSITION OF THE HEAD IN SLEEP [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 12 June 1914
POSITION OF THE HEAD IN SLEEP Custom lias imposed the use of the bolster and the pillow, but it does not of necessity follow that they are ad vantageous or conducive to- sound vlcep. Physiologically, we are entitled to entertain a doubt, seeing that phy siologists are still unable to state au thoritatively whether the brain in sleep is conegsted or anaemic. The general experience is that the lower the head the deeper is the sleep, and vice versa. Apart from morbid con ditions which render it impossible to some persons to sleep wltlt the head low—conditions which vary ad infini tum from mere preference for a thick bolster to positive orthopnoea—habit, and, possibly, physiological conforma tion, render the head-low position In bed intolerable to some. It is urged against the use of these supports that tliey infiict a constrain ed pasition of the neck, which inter feres with the passage of blood to and from the brain, and * contracts the thorax. On the other hand, unless one lies on th...
