No amount of repetition seems to dull the attraction of Christmas Eve in the street, and whilst it is asserted that there is not so much shopping concen trated in it as formerly, there is a heavy volume of business transacted, and Christmas Eve shopping in Rain how was on a scale to tax the resources of the staff of the various trading establishments. Towards evening there was a large influx of visitors from the country, and Federal-street presented an animated appearance. There was an air of prosperity about the people that bodes well for a prosperous year, and there was an atmosphere of joviality and good-will that assured a merry Christmas.

HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914

HEART PALPITATION. It is rarely, if ever, that palpitation is due to any disease or weakness of the heart. It is almost invariably the result of nervous or digestive trouble. The toeat of the heart arises within itself. There are nerves in the mus cles of the .heart, and they regulate its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. If they were not held in check they would set a rate about double that which is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs of regulatiug nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerves, act only to spur tip ti c heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inhibitory nerves, are always in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile is true, for these nerves check the speed. Fear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhibitory nerves to re lax; ...

TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914

TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should be taught to use a tootlijbrush aud some good dentriiice after every meal, and especially be fore going to bed at night. There are few things more offensive than an un pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if proper care is given the teeth. One of the cheapest and most enective denirilices is common table salt, and if used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed. There are many dentrifices in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but some of them are harmful, and it is well to make one's own dentriiice. If the gums are tender aud inclined to bleed easily, select a brush adapted to then tender condition, and do not give them excessive friction. Your dentist will tell you a preparation for hardening the gums without harming them. There are some gums so tender that a hard brush injures them. The teeth should be brushed downward from both sides of the upper teeth, and up ward from both sin...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914

CHAPTER III. Love, Hilary's daily letter, his fly ing visits to London, and her own courage, helped Queenie through the next four months. She was still work ing at Voile and Co.'s. A bride needs a trousseau, and the home had still to be kept up, though the financial strain had lessened; but in a way that troubled Queenie and kept her awake at night instead of bringing peace of mind. iVlr. Price had taken a single-room office in the city, and was speculating in copper with some apparent suc cess. A man cannot speculate without some capital. It was the knowledge of the source of her father's borrow ed capital that helped to keep Queenie awake at night. Michael Thome had lent him the money, but, as Mr. Price put it airily, on a purely business basis; Michael Thorne, who, since the night of his unsuccessful proposal to Queenie, seemed to have discarded all human emotions and turned himself into a money-making machine; who had justified his boast, "Nothing can stop me!" He was the sensat...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 3 January 1914

CHAPTER II. The Prices occupied the half of a house, classically termed "maison ette" in advertisements. They had a front door to themselves, and also a flight of stairs with a sharp turn be fore the premises commencing on the first floor were reached. It was late. When sales were on at Voile and Co., Queenie's hour of re turn was quite uncertain. She had a latchkey, and the gas was left burning in the hall passage for her. As Queenie stepped into the pass age, Michael Thorne had reached the foot of the stairs, and she heard the retreating shuffle of her father's car pet slippers as he reached the landing above. Mr. Price wore a loud-checlced suit, white spats, and a rakish bowler hat at an angle by day; but at night— when he was at home—collapsed into a dressing-gown and carpet slippers. He rarely exhibited open signs of drunkenness, but he became very weary after an excess of whisky. That was why, instead of seeing Michael Thorne to the front door, he had "God blessed" him on the ...

An exchange has figured that, if this were literally true, the 24 hours would be spent thus:—One hour dig ging out a rat, two hours knawing a hone, one hour waiting for a cat to come down from a tree, half an hour begging to get in the house, and thei balance of the time sleeping on a mat i in the^cold doorway.
