BE GENEROUS IN SMALL THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
BE GENEROUS IN SMALL THINGS. It is good to be generous in small things. They make up ihe greater part of life and produce almost all of its sorrows and its joys. Almost anyone can afforB to be generous and open-hearted in three things at least — in geniality, sunny hearted ness, and good nature. A smile and a cheery word are worth more than gold. Many men who now and then do some generous big things, spoil the effect of it and win little love becaase they are close handed and mean in small things.
Complete Story. (All Rights' Reserved.) ROMANY'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
A Complete Story. ? 9 v.. (All Rights' Reserved.) ROMANY'S REVENGE. By CONIRIE COLQUHOUN, Alitor of 'Horatio Brown: Knight Errant,' 'The - Salvation of Sue,' 'His Better Self,' 'Love and a Motor-car, '' etc. ?: In the quietude of the reading room of a Lond p hotel sat a young man plunged iri deep thought. So engrossed was he in his cogitation that he .did not hear the hilarious laughter in the smoking-room ad joining. The fact is, Bernard Riv ers was making up his mind. He . was engaged in a warm argument with himself as to whether he should adopt a certain course at once or wait until circumstances oc curred which should render his project less liable to failure. For an hour he thought, turning over the weighty mattersin his mind. Finally the arguments, for speedy action outweighted those counselling, delay. He had made up his mind ? — he decided to take the plunge. So. packing a Gladstone bag he left the hotel, and took the train for a village in Surrey. ' During the railway journ...
Health in the Home. ORANGES AND INFLUENZA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
Health in the Home. ORANGES AND INFLUENZA. An orange taken before break faatnis a very helpful laxative, and at any time 'of the' day it may be eaten with advantage. It has often been recommended as a specific against boils. In influenza it is also useful, as it reduces fibrin in the blood, and better than almost any thing is calculated to assuage the ex cessive thirst. Of course, it is also a gentle laxative, and this property it retains when made into marma lade, so that anyone whose bowels are sluggish will do well to finish off his breakfast with a tablespoonful of good marmalade.
ACUTE GASTRITIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
ACUTE GASTRITIS. The signs of acute gastritis are restlessness, feverishness, thirst, pain, offensive breath, loss of appe tite, and burning sensation at pit of stomach. When these symptoms are present there need be no doubt in regard to the lesion, though the nrimarv cause may be obscure or un known. For a time the stomach will digest nothing, henee.no food may be swallowed. The constant call is for water; and the colder it be so much the better it is relieved. Ice wfll dOj yet a constant supply must be at -hand, as soon as the stomach is full of fluid, emesis takes place, often with retching. Then more water ! To treat such a case suc cessfully requires thought. Is a drug needed? Possibly a few drops of -eamphor water, a sip of warm water, or a teaspoonful of ginger ale. Warm water will, slake the cravings of thirst better than cold. A dilute solution of sulphate of ? magnesia operates favourably, even if not well received at first.- As the nausea subsides rest will be obtained — ...
NOISES IN THE EARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
NOISES IN THE EARS. ? This is a very common complaint. It may arise from quite a variety of causes. In the first place it may be due simply to an accumulation of wax in the ears. This is often caused, too, by putting water in the ears while washing or after bathing. Noises in the ears may even indicate actual disease of the organ, and is then' often attended by more or less pain and deafness. Constipation is sometimes a cause, and one which is easily remedied. Bloodlessness, too, may lead to noises in the ears, and then the usual accompaniments are weakness, giddiness, breathlessness, and palpitation.
TURPENTINE IN INFECTIOUS DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
TURPENTINE IN INFECTIOUS DISEASES. M. Vilandt writes in a foreign contemporary concerning tho value of the oil of turpentine in the treat ment of diphtheria and the eruptive fevers, lie states that he has never seen any of these -diseases spread from a sick child to other members of the family when this remedy was employed. In many of his cases no isolation could be attempted, as the mother was the only female in the family, and was obliged to take care of both the sick and well, continu ally passing back and forth from one to the other. His method was to pour from twenty to forty drops of a mixture of equal parts of turpen tine and carbolic acid into a kettle of water, which was kept simmering I over a slow fire, so that- the air of the sick room was constantly im pregnated with the odour of these two substances. He claims also that by this means a favourable influence is exerted upon the exudation in I diphtheria, although it is hy no means curative of the disease, and should neve...
OFFENSIVE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
OFFENSIVE BREATH. Offensive breath is sometimes due to bad teeth and sometimes to' dys pepsia. When the teeth are decayed a visit must be paid to the dentist. When dyspepsia is the cause, the in VialafJon of a fow drops of puro torG ucue Hum uuib lu time, acts as a preventive. It-is a condition which can be readily cured by a little at tention to the general health, and especially by avoiding constipation.
A USEFUL EXERCISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
A USEFUL EXERCISE. When one is in that condition usually described as 'something wrong with the liver,' a measure of immediate relief is obtained by 'massaging' that organ. One of the best ways of doing so is to bend side ways, as is taught in almost all gym nasiums. If all sedontary people would do this for five minutes every morning, and be a little more care ful in regard to what they eat, both in quality and amount, there would be fewer sick headaches and more clear complexions.
GLUTTONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 2 May 1911
GLUTTONY. - Gluttony has its victims, hardly less numerous than other vices. To over eat is to over burden the diges tive organs to such an extent that it will be impossible for them to per form their duties properly, deleteri ous products are created, and health is finally destroyed. No man can over-eat and live out his expectancy. It is as important to inquire into Jfie habits of a man proposed for insurance in this re spect as in drinking. Men have been known to kill themselves in this manner. A prominent judge used to say such men dig their graves with their teeth — and it is so.
Facts & Fancies. Onions for Long Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 9 May 1911
Faets 1 Fancies. Onions for Long Life. More than one long-lived person has attributed his or her length of years to the habitual eating of on ions. Mrs. Rebecca Burns, who died at the age of 115 years, at tributed her long life to the fact that she always ate onions twice every day. She began this diet when a girl and never gave it up.: To within a day or two' of her death she insisted on being served with onions. She ate them either cook ed or uncooked. There are records which seemingly prove without doubt the date of her birth. Un doubtedly, the active principle of thei onion is a powerful 'germicide. Queer Parliamentary Etiquette. The etiquette of the Members of the Turkish Chamber almost vies with the politeness of the young Chinaman to his prospective father in-law, so amusingly described by Goldsmith. At the commencement of the new era, either by accident or design, a custom arose that when any Member of the' House entered, all those who were present rose from their seats and ...
THE ARTIFICIAL INCUBATION OF DUCK EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 9 May 1911
THE ARTIFICIAL INCUBATION OF DUCK EGGS. Ducks' eggs require less heat du ring their period of incubation than hens' eggs. Whilst the tempera ture in the incubator should, for the latter, be 103 or 104 degrees, that for the former should not exceed 102, apart. from the last few days of incubation, when the temperature will naturally rise, and is a goed sign that there is life in the eggs. Ducks' eggs are generally supposed to require a great deal of moisture during incubation, but this is by no means correct. The eggs, up to the 26th day, need no more moisture than hens' eggs, but after that time they are benefited by an application of moisture, as this softens the shells and their lining membranes, and renders them easy of breakage .by the imprisoned ducklings. The eggs should not be sprinkled .to moisten them, as such a procedure has a chilling effect upon them. Neither should they be floated in hot water unless a small number of eggs are to be dealt with, as the operation is liabl...
THE INCUBATOR THERMOMETER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 9 May 1911
THE INCUBATOR THERMOM ETER. 1 tie incubator thermometer is re sponsible to a very great extent for the ultimate results attending the operation of artificial hatching. Should the instrument be inaccurate to the extent of a couple of degrees either day, the eggs in the machine will either be spoiled or rendered weak in their embryos. It is by the ? aid of the TTtfermometer that khe regulator governing the heat in the egg chamber is set so that the nec essary temperature may be ensur ed. If the instrument is inaccur ate, it means that the heat in the incubator will^Be inaccurate, anel the ultimate results a failure. When procuring an incubator thermome ter, it is unwise to consider cheap ness by investing in an instrument of foreign origin, but one should be procured from a maker of good repute. It sometimes happens that, in transit, the mercury column of the thermometer becomes divided, and should this occur the instru ment should 1iave its bulb inserted in water heated to about i2od...
The Poultry Run. HATCHING AND REARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 9 May 1911
The Poultry Ron. ? ? ♦ HATCHING AND REARING. Pierhaps some of my readers who have not been at the business very long will appreciate a note on hatching and rearing chickens suc cessfully. The older hands will, of course, proceed on the lines they know from experience suit the par ticular conditions best. In chicken rearing, as in other things, patience is a great factor towards success? . . ?-? Do not let your temper give way to. small annoyances or . you will never become a successful chicken rearer. Tlie First Steps. Having found a fairly reliable broody hen, a nest should be pre . pared for her, the bottom of which should consist of soil, followed by ; a thick layer of soft hay, hollowed out like a basin. Into this place about a dozen tested eggs, put your - broody hen in front of the nest of eggs, and you can often judge by the manner in which she goes about v her business at this stage whether she is likely to prove a suitable sit ter. I like a hen that walks on to i the eggs v...
The Farmer. PREPARING SHOW STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 9 May 1911
The Farmer. ? : ? PREPARING SHOW STOCK. The coats of young stock, an ex perienced herdsman remarks, are im portant, and he thus , explains his practice with young bulls: 'About thrfiS^eeks before the show I be . gan itJ give him particular attention. . His exercise is all taken at the rope's end. Each afternoon I lead him up and back a half-mile line. He is allowed to travel at his own leisurely pace, but is required to ' keep moving, and to keep his head up. After this he is given r\ lesson in standing, turning rour. \ and starting at the snap of the 'whip. Through this means he loses all shy ness, and will feel at ease when led into the show ring. Each day, usu ally in the morning, I sponge him off with cold water and blanket him. thus encouraging the growth of the hair. A few days before he is ex v. pected to be shown I polish his ' horns, oil his hoofs, and curl his coat. To polish his horns, I first go over them with the rasp, follow _ 'li:''ed respectively By the emery, sand ?...
