MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1894
MISCELLANEOUS I'EMS. A keen business wan.-A gentleman recently about:to pay his doctor's bill said: " Well, doctor, as my. little boy jgave the maisles to all my neighbors' children, ,and ask they were attended by you, I think you can afford, at the very least, to deduct '10 per cent from the. amount of my bill for the increase of business we gave you," A young gentleman who had been A,.cquainted with his girl two nights at tempted to kiss her at the gate. After, wards he told the doctors that just as he "kissed her the earth slid from un der his feet, and, his soul went out of his mouth, while his head touched the stars."

THE DANGER OF HIGH-HEELED BOOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 21 December 1894
THE DANGER OF HIGH-HEELED BOOTS. It has been stated that a young lady went one day to an oculist. about a growing iveakness in: her eyes wlhiclh provented her reading. The oculist looked at her with his professional wis dom, asked her various questions, and then suddenly' amazed her by asking her to put out her foot. The foot, in its kid hoot with a very high heel, was thrust forth. The doctor eyed it a moment with a stolid face. " Go home," he said, "and take off those heels; keep them off for a month, and then come to me again and we'll see how the eyes are," In a month the eyes were well; and the'young lady learned that there is the possibility that, with an instru men t of torture constantly at work in the centre of the foot, where so many deli cate nerves and tendons lie that are so intimately connected with all the other "delicate nerves of the body, there must presently come' disarrangement and disease that may work mischief with the health.-Ex:ecl?nge.

OLD FATHEit CHRISTMAS is about to pay us his annual visit, and; there are not wanting signs that preparations are be ing made to give him a hearty welcome. We have had some ups and downs since he was last amongst us-more " downs" than "ups," worse lIck but, for all that, when the old gentle man arrives we shall put ourselves into our Sunday clothes, spread the table with the hbist cheer we can afford, lock up our worries and cares in the cup board where the family skeleton is kept, draw a thick curtain before it, and sit down to enjoy ourselves. And it is right that it should be so. There are in most families certain landmarks in the year's journey at which they pause for a mrnment or two-to take breath, as it were, and give way to the pleasurable emotions which arise on arriving at that spot. It may he the anniversary of a birth, a marriage, an escape from s great danger, or recgngiligtion with 4 dear friend. There are periods...
