This can bo taken in the shape of tins pure expressed olive oil, as an emulsilied salad dressing, or iby eating nuts, olives, etc. It may he a matter of choice how the system 1 gets its (ill, bui a certain amount «s j essential to tho enjoyment of good 'health. Tho good results of the habi- | Ifcual use of the above articles in the diet are soon shown, especially where j (persons are inclined to indigestion and constipation.

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914

CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should be paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Woclienzeitung," of "Wintertliur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a de^tl man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914

AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. A few years ago the South Austra lian Government offered a prize for the invention of a stone-gathering machine to be used on some of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. Tho first competition was abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, Dut the two or three machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, wa learn (says "The. Hardwareman" > that two Australians have invented an im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing Btony land. The new idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. T'ae rake, which is triangular in shape, and works iu snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, af...

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914

LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. It may be (observes the "Lancet") that some enthusiastic and laborious German statistician has already ac cumulated figures bearing upon the question of length of life and Its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if so, we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life—cheerful people—are also those to whom long est life is given, commonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life, and the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can not make himself so. Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary 'burden to IiIb relatives, miser able through the carking care of some bodily ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, if he ha...

A Great Invention. Mr. Edison, who recently tried to j take a holiday from work and is said i to have become ill through boredom, 1 is apt to 'be rather crusty with visi tors to his workrooms when they ask too many questions. One Cay rather talkative journal ist pointed at a model. "What's that?" he asked. Mr. Edison, who was getting very weary of the man's endless questions, replied blandly: "That, my dear sir, is a cradle which rocks by sound. You put the baby in and the louder it howls, the faster the cradle rocks!"

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her heart was filled with longing to be out, if only ; for a few fleeting minutes, in the sun shine that kissed the street. j "Could you manage, ma'am," she venture", goaded into rebellion at last, | "could you possibly manage to release , me for a second or two?" "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver Twist asked for more. "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. I wouldn't dawdle, really, I wouldn't. It is the people passing and re-passing the win dow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I " Her voice trembled tearfully into si lence, but on the face of the female despot a saintly light appeared. "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have been too hard'on you," she said softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"—she paused, and a cry of joy burst from the girl'...

THROUGH QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 15 May 1914

THROUGH QUEENSLAND. (By P.d., Glenlee). Brisbane city is certainly pretty ; tho buildings are new and clean in appearance. Once you got away from the river the streets are straight and well laid out, though rather narrow. The country on which the city has been built is very uneven, and con sists mainly of little riseB, but numerous excavations, etc., have been made, so the streets are fairly level. This, however, leads to one peculi arity. Walking along a street you will find a building on one side built on an elevation 10ft or 20ft above you, whilst on tho other side the roof of the building is perhaps only on a level with the street. The soil is of a rocky nature, thus permitting of very sharp cuttings and preventing landslides. One notices some splen did and up-to-date publio buildings, but in this respect Brisbane is still a long way behind Sydney and Mel bourne. There is a good electric tram service ; motor power is also fairly plentiful. Whon inside of a large dining-room *or ...
