Few persons really realise* what nurses' hours are.

Cut, alas! every one — doctors and nurses alike — was so "dead beat" that it was quietly allowed to fall through. I cannot understand why ono ...

Sporting. CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 February 1914
spoiling. CYCLING. Owing to the advance made in Benzol production in Germany dur ing tbo past ytar, some 1;57,000 tons I being produced—that country is ' now independent of foreign sup [ plies in times both'of peace and war. I If this can be done in Germany, why not in this country, with its huge coal resources ? A novel motor car hill climb was recently held in France, the contes tants having to stop their cars at a given point during the climb, re verse for ten yards, and start off I again for the top of the hill. The test proved efficiency, flexibility of engines, and afforded a good oppor tunity for display ot skill in driv ing. Such an event should be worth trying in this country.
