These examinations are conduct ed annually by the State Education De partment,' and they are instruCt::; as showing th! quality of the young men and women who are coming forward to be the teachers of the immediate fu ture.

THE GREATEST FRIEND OF DISEASE. (Contributed by W.C.T.U.) [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 31 March 1914
THE GBEATEST FRIEND OF DISEASE. BY DR. W. A. CHAPPLE, IN "EAST AND WEST." (Contributed by W.C.T.U.) , The general belief is that the worst property alcohol possesses- is that it makes people drunk.- This is a great mistake. This popular notion has made it difficult for teachers- to make much headway against .the evil, for Speople think that if thdy guard against this property of alcohol, they are safe from its evil. influence. The worst property possessed by alcohol is that it weakens the tissue resistance of -the body in its fight against diseases, i.e., all diseases. Alcohol increases the mortality of all diseases. It- predis poses to all diseases, and it makes die. eases more:rapid and. more fatal'when a disease is once acquired. Many peo ple. get pneumonia and die, because they drink-not because they are drunken-but because there is drink in their tissues, amongst the- fighting cells of their body. -This bathing of the. vital tissde;cells in alcohol weakens themin?:theiir resist...
