First Treatment of Burns. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

First Treatment of Burns. The first duty to be done In con nection with burns or scalds should be the removal of clothing from the affected part. The clothing should be cut oil', and such portions as may ad here to the burnt surface should be eiOier floated off by immersing the burnt part in a bath of tepid or warm . wjjter, or in lieu of this plan the part i should be thoroughly soaked with ! olive oil so as to loosen the portions ! of clothing which may be attached to j the burnt surface. ; Dressing of the injury forms the next step. Any form of oily dressing which can be had may be used for the ; treatment of burns. The pain of the j burn is sometimes eased by soaking j the part in a bath of warm water to j which a little bicarbonate of soda has been added, this measure being car- j ried out before the application of the , dressing. AVhere oily dressings can not be found, the surface of the burn may be dusted with flour or with flour and water made into a paste, or even painted w...

MEDICAL MEMS. Pain in the Feet. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

MEDICAL MEMS. I Pain in the Feet. In many cases pain in the feet is : owing to the presence of corns, bun- • ions, or chilblains. But there are .more obscure affections that cause pain in walking. Two of the most common are flatfoot, and tlie opposite condi- i tion—an overhigh arch. .. | When he arch is too high the | weight of the body is not properly dis- j tributed, but falls on the heel and the j ball of the foot. The pain is especial ly severe in the bail of the foot. In i flatfoot the pain is most severe in the early stages, when the fibrous sheet | that stretches between the ball of the : foot and the heel has to do all the ; work of keeping the foot in shape, 1 since the ligaments that are meant to •' support the arch are already weaken- ' ed and elongated. After this fibrous J structure—the plantar fascia it is called—has yielded, and tho flatfoot is fully established, the pain is much leas acute. When both lies s are painful it usu ally means either that flatfoot is be gin...

"HORSE POWER." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 9 July 1914

"HORSE POWER." It. is not everyouo who knows Ihe exact meaning of the term "horse power" as applied to steam engines. The following is the explanation given by Professor Farey in a hook on the steam engine:— The machinery in the great brew eries and distilleries of London was moved by horses, and the proprie tors of those establishments, who were among the first to require Mr. Watt's engines, always inquired what .number of norses an intended engine would replace. Consequently Mr. Watt made some experiments on the strong horses em ployed by the brewers of London, and found that a horse of that kind, walk ing at the rate of two and one-half miles an hour, could draw oue hun dred and fifty pounds avoirdupois by means of a rope passing over a pulley, so as to raise up that weight, with a vertical motion, at the rate of two hundred and twenty feet a minute. This exertion of mechanical power is equal to raising thirty-three thousand pounds—or Ave hundred and twenty eight cubic feet of wa...

There are so many things which we are accustomed to use and which we never have to do without that it seldom occurs to us that once upon a' time man had none of them. Take, for instance, the houses in which we live. It Is as certain ns any thing can be that there was a time when 110 houses were built. Man was in such a primitive state that he had not the least conception of the build er's art, and all he could do to obtain some amount of shelter from the wind and rain was to hide within caves in the rocks and cliffs. Those caves in deed were the first primitive homes of mankind. We take our fireplaces for granted. There was 110 fireplace in the cave home of th...
