INGROWING NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

INGROW'ING NAILS. For sore toes from ingrowing nails try daily application ot hydro gen peroxide, and wear a loose shoc. It often happens that im proper trimming of the nails is re sponsilb!c for this trouble. Where the diliicultv is long continued, place a small pledgct of cotton un der the nail. To remove the sore ness, moisten the pledget with vase line ,on which has been placed a drop of ~.pirits of camphor. By keep ing the cotton under the nail for a little while, and trimming the nail square instead of roun:ilng, it is licikely that it would soon grow out and the trouble will lx Ic.noved. , "The Black Diamond." One of the natural wonders of the. world is the great pitch lake of Trin idad, the most southerly island of the - British West Indies. Paying better than any gold or diamond mine, the lake is locally known as "The Black Diamond."

ICE CREAM VENDOR. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

ICE CREAM VENDOR. To the Editor ofthe "Advertiser." Sir,-In your brief report on the above topic you make me say ice cream is a malignant source of infection. I did not intend that remark to apply to the business generally, but to certain vendors who make their own sufr apart from supervision and who are here to day and gone to-morrow, and I stated that all over the world people were being poisoned by some of the stuff sold. Hence the need of regulations and licenses and reference to the Gardens committee. No reflecticon whatever was intended upon local caterers, who, I know, only supp!y the best that is procurable As an authen tic comment on the above, it is stated that at Peterberg, South Austra.ia, moS persons were poisoned with ice cream last Saturday. Twenty of them are seriously ill, and one death occurred. Yours, etc., S. BYRNE. Obedience is the key to every door. Faith is the magnetic needle which guides the soul when the polar star of reason is wrapt in darkness. Change is ...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our correspondents. THE VALUATION DEBATE. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. We d~ ra reee~Iy~ i~rtifj ekesi x; aplr~isrs reed Sy~ carr;-~ THE VALUATION DEBATE. To the Editor of the "Advertif-er.'" Sr?r--Valuer Eddy may well pray to be saved from his municipal friends, as the only suagestion of corruption came from them. Now, Sir, as I spoke early in the debate and could not reply to my critics, I would be glad if you will let me state that when upon 'hearsay" I referred to the irregular issue of ferry tickets, Councillors made no complaint But they did make enquiry, found the allegations were ccrrect, and promptly amended the system. But because similar trustworthy statements were made about their "curled darling" they went off like a packet of crackers, with just about as much effect-merely noise. I understand several ratepayers can authenticate the validity of my statement,--Yours, etc., S. BYRNE.

INTELLECT STILL CLEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

INTELLECT STILL CLEAR. The storm was over, but the doctor was busy with the sufferers. Among them was a young woman who had been hurled against a stone wall, and who was still unconscious. "I have witnessed the effects of" many a cyclone," said the physician to one of his assistants, as he bent over the woman. Before he could say more, her eyes opened, and she spoke-into space. "The cyclone ista rotary storm of widely-extended circuit," she mur. mured. "Its centre is frequently many miles from its outer limit. This storm was a tornado, and -" Here she became unconscious again. "From Bostozi?" whispered the at tendant, and the physician nodded.

LIFE IN THE CONGO STATE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

LIFE INT THE CONGO STATE. An Italian naval surgeon, Dr. Baccari, who spent four years in the Congo Free State on a scientific mis sion, has just published a book about his expedition wl-''h contains some interesting details about the customs of the natives. Dr. Boccari says that the natives are cannibals simply because they like human flesh, and they eat their fellow creatures with the same indif ference as we do animal' food. A native who had been brought up by Europeans and taught to abstain from human flesh complained one day to the local magistrate that some natives had eaten the body of his father, who had died a few days be fore. "They have eaten it all themselves without giving a single piece to my family or even to me, who am his son," he said, and he asked for re dress because he considered himrself defrauded. The wars between different vil lages are undertaken mostly with tihe object of procuring human flesh; hence prisoners are never exchanged, but always fattened and sla...

SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

SWIMMING. The local competitions for club cham pionship and the boy's silver watch, which are taking place weekly, are exciting keen competition and rivalry amongst members. Our swimmers had a good day at Abbotsford carnival on Sturdasy last, no fewer than 18 names of Williamstown boys figuring on the programme. They annexed the two chief trophies on the card, viz., the Sherrin Memorial Handicap and the]Relay Race. H. Stebbing celebrated his return to Melbourne by winning the former in fine style and the brothera Jamieson, who have been paying attention to their training, and who are performing par ticularly well, hid little difficulty in appropriating the Relay Race. A second place and likewise a third fell to the lots of some of our boys, while Tom Holland and A. Gastertadt each won his heat in the Junior Handicap-a good day for Williamstown. It is on the cards that, funds permit ting, the executive of our local club will hold a members' carnival to wind up the season. A series of...

THE COMEDY OF MASSA KESSI. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

THE COMEDY OF MASS.A KESSI. There is a comic-opera episode at Massa Kessi, a small and recent Portuguese settlement, then consist ing of a-few hots and a stockade; now- the frontier railway-station of Portuguese East Africa, says a wri ter in "Cornhill." This little settle ment, being in disputed territory, was evacuated by Rhodes' orders in April, 189!. But Captain Reyman and his five-and-forty Pioneers re treated but few miles, to a hill call ed Chua. In. a month's time up came a force of.250o Portuguese sold iers and 5oo natives, under a Cap tain Bettincouri and two other offi. cers; and they occupied Massa Kes si. Not contented with doing this, they ordered flevman and his Jri tish to clear out of Manicaland. As suredly any body of soldiers in the world would, in the face of such odds, have done so without a blush. But the Pioneers seem to have be longed to the pitiably unenlightened and almost extinct type of Briton who does not know when he is bea ten. They were half-starved, ...

RANDOM READINGS. "TURKEY AFTER TWO YEARS." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 27 February 1915

RANDOBM READINGS. "TURKEY AFTER TWO YEARS." What the Young Turk revolution has really done for Turkey may be realised by the evidence oU Mr. D. G. Hogarth, who describes the more striking changes in an article Sunder the above heading in the S"Contemporary." Mr. Hogarth, who knew Turkey well, through personal acquaintance extending 2 over twenty years, before the re B volution, recently revisited Constan tinople, and appears to have been astounded by some of the outward Seffects of the new regime. One thing which the revolution has done She describes as almost a miracle to anyone who knew the old Turkey: It has made the man in the street speak freely and aloud, and look his fellows in the face unafraid and un alarmed. This is no fancy of mine. In former days one was conscious, the moment one left the railway station or landed on the quays of Constantinople, that the men in the streets who were not hectoring or cursing or silent were speaking under their breath. Their eyes habitually...
