SOMETHING ABOUT SHIRTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
SOMETHING ABOUT SHIRTS. The episode in the Gospel of the rioh man clothed in purple and fine linen is .one with which' we are all familiar. How early shirts were worn it is very difficult to deoide. The Israelites, we know wore them, as the aadin, a light garment worn next to the person, is expreptily mentioned. And when an 'order' or 'chnnge of garments* waB made for a man-always in the East esteemed an honourable and valuable gift-among tho lara elites it usually connia ted of a shirt j an under-tun¡o generally without sleeves ; and on outer mantlo, robe or doak. Greeks frequently, but not always, wore a garment of very fine oloth, cotton or transparent silk next the skin. Aocording to Mr Hope, anther of ' Costumes of the Ancients/ this garment, whioh does net indeed appear to ave been always worn, but whioh, when ever worn, was always next to the skin seems to have been the light, oreasy stuff, aimilar to the gauzes of which to this day the Eastern nations make tbeir shirts..

A GOOD COMPEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
A GOOD COMPEXION. There is no beauty more necessary to nia^e n woman attractive than a clear skin, and this with very little trouble almost nil of us can attain. The first thing necessary for » good com- plexion is a good digestion ; indeed, thoro are few human ills that cannot ho laid at the door of a badly working liver. To remedy this one must, of course, apply to one's doctor. Most to this comes cleanliness. Everybody should tnko a warm bath once a day. Not jump into the tub and out again, but take a scrulibing with first quality of sonp. Afterwards one should sponge off with cold water ; but there is no danger nnywoy of en tching cold if one does not yo out for ntl hour. This rubbing opens the pores und lets out nil over the body many impurities which otherwise would ii ml u vent through the lace. The I'ncu itself should be washed night and morning in hot wal er, good soap, ont or corn menl. Aftor this rubgontlybut firmly into ti io skin Tor about five minutes n little cold cro...
GOOD THINGS TO LEARN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
GOOD THINGS TO LEARN. Learn to laugh. A good laugh is better than medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A well-told story is as welcome a9 a sunbeam in a sick-room. Learn to keep you troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croacking. If you cannot see any good in this world, keep the bad to yourself. Learn how to hide you aches and pains under a pleasant smile. Learn to attend strictly to your own busi- ness. A very important point. Learn to greet your friends with a smile. They carry too many frowns in their own hearts to be bothered with any of yours.
THE SOCIETY DEBUTANTE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
THE SOCIETY DEBUTANTE. When a young girl first enters society her immediate sensations are those of attainment, triumph and elation. In the first flush of her social career her imagination opens for lier a long vista of pleasures, whose brightness is un- sullied by the slightest shadow of care. Sloon, though, the novelty commences to wear off, and she finds that, far from being a life of unalloyed pleasure, society, like everything else, has its drawbacks. The health must be kept up, or one becomes a back number. For work of this kind there is no remedy on the market equal to Bile Beans. Keeping the entire system in a thorough state of cleanliness, free from all waste and impure matter, toning up the ner- vous organism, purifying the blood, and keep- ing the female organs in regular and thorough working order, they achieve what no other medicine can do, i.e., a complete mastery over all derangements of the body arising from over- indulgence of any sort. Late hours, rich food, lack o...

RAISING HEAVY LOGS. ?GREAT STRENGTH OF A NEW S >UTH WEL8H .1' MAN. The raising, vmàid«d, of heavy loss re 'quire« a good deal of muscular strength, and only a few would attempt the task. Mr. Dennis Walsh, of Winterbourne, near Wuloha. N.S.W., has not only attempted, >>ut lina succeeded in performing almost incredible feats It is interesting to notice the menus by which he obtained the con- siderable stiength required to do this. Chatting a woy to a Walcha Witness reporter the other day. he gave an interesting recital of portion of his life. "Once," said he, .* I waa the very reverse of strong. In fact, I was often in the greatest agony, being ßffl cted with Bright's disease in an acut»» form. I first felt the pain after being thrown from a horse, and I was then laid up for eight months. I tried aluiosteverything without leceiving any benefit. I could not hold myself upright. I saw different doctor?. One told me that my spine had been injured, ?aud that I sboizld have to und...
KNOW THEIR DUTY WELL. PERFORMING DAILY TO THE SATISFACTION OF MANY PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
KNOW TflEIß DUTY WELL. PERFORMING DAILY TO THE SATISFACTION OF MANY PEOPLE. It's the duty of the kidneys to see tuet the blood keeps pure. Not to make new blood--the food we eat does that, but to remove from the blood all the poisons and impurities--the waste matter-that is gathered up during its circuit of the body. These poisons tire deadly. If they are not taken out of the blood by the natural filters, the kidneys, they are carried back to the heart, and are started out again all through the body. Of course they Chuse disease. We cau't be healthy if our blood isn't pure. When our kidneys are siok our baok aches. That's a way they have of telling us they need help. Its the duty of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills to cure sick kidneys. They know their duty well. They nre performing it right here in Liverpool. Mrs. Elizabeth Hall of Corrimal, Wollon- gong, says:-"I have sufpMted for a long time wiih my kidneys and. liver. I have had pains in my back, dizziness and 8or«nesn on my left bi...

IT IS A MISTAKE. To work when you are not in a condition todo so. To take off heavy underclothing out of sen son simply because you have become ovor hcated.

A GREAT INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
A GREAT INSTITUTION. Australia possesses many institutions of which it is justifiably proud. None, how- ever, has eclipsed in public interest the Australian Mutual Provident Society, which will at the close of the year complete its Jubilee. It is well then, at this juncture, to recall the fact that the society was started in 1849 on the mutual principle with no other capital than its admirable constitution, and such has been its popularity that after 50 years it is in the enviable position of being by far the most considerable financial institution in the colonies, as well as the largest mutual life office in the British Empire. A few figures will give an idea of the wonderful growth of the society. Funds to the amount of ¿614,479,578 are invested, while the annual income is no less than £2,094,706. The eash surplus distributed among members during 49 years aggregates £7,726,170, whilß the cash bonus distributed last year amounted to £445,235. This is a record profit among life offi...

SCIENCE. HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
sciure«. -. HEALTH HINTS. ' It is indoors, Sir, as kills half the people -being indoors three parts of the day ; and next to that taking too muoh drink and vittals. Eating is as bad as drinking, and there íb nothing like fresh air and the smell of the woods and sea and hay fields -depend upon it, if you want to live healthy.' Thus writeB the ' Gamekeeper at Home,*'and muoh truth lies in his logic Not that I agree with his maxim anent 'taking too muoh drink and vittals,' for in in these rushing days I am inolined to think the majority of people err on the sid« of taking too little. There are possibly a few exceptions, hut men and women who lead busy lives require ample nourishment, and it is no rare thing to find that those who work with the brain are apt to half starve the body. And that is a fatal error ! But with regard to fresh air versus living indoors, I readdy concur with our woodland philosopher, and would urge you all to defy the weather and spend every available moment of y...

A HARD UP POET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
A HARD UP POET. Jacques le Lorrain, the gifted young minor poet, who threw up literature in disgust about two years ago and turned cobbler, has determined to take to the pursuit of letters again. Commissions were few and far between, and the poet has oome to the conclusion that he might as well starve at writing, whioh he likes, ao at shoe-making, whioh he detests. One would have thought that the general interest excited in his abandonment of literature would have brought him customers. But it was not so. Neither the young literary lions of the Latin Quarter, nor his well- to-do friends, nor the prosperous literary mon who formerly encouraged him, troubled their heads about the poet cobbler. A journal devoted to the leather and tanning trades gave him some orders for verses, to be paid for at 25 francs a contribution. Le Lorrain accepted the offer, but the editor discovered after paying for the first poem that 25 francs was a great deal of money for a few lines of poetrj. ' Just ima...
TRAVELLER. CURIO FACTORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 15 October 1898
ÎBAYUSB. CURIO FACTORIES. A well known ourio expert makes a re- markable statement. There are certain factories that exist in Europe for the manu- facture of all kinds of works of art that are likely to attract the collector. Modern artioles of ohina are stamped with old marks so cloverly that even experts have been deceived. Arms and armour are treated with acids whioh eat away the metal, thus produoing the same effoot as the ravages of time. Carved ivories are stained with oils to make them yellow, and are subjected to heat to make them oraok. Pieces of furni- ture have holes drilled to represent the worm holes, and so on, until thors will in time be very little in the way of curios which are in themselves really curious. Paris is one of the strongholds of this olass of forgers, while in Hungary there is a faotory where Dresden ohina is imitated in a fair manner. There is, however, one safe way, and that , is to buy through reputable dealers. Forgeries in all works of art very rar...
