RUMP STEAK AS TOOTH BRUSH [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 February 1914

RUMP STEAK AS TOOTH BRUSH "Healthy back teeth will stand a pressure of 2001b.," declared Mr "W. H. Dalamore in a lecture at the Royal Dental Hospital recently. "The ena mel of the teeth is the hardest sub stance in the human body," he added, "and the harder the food we eat the better our teeth will be. TVhen I was at the London Hospital I noticed the beautiful teeth of the Russian emi grants. They owed them to the hard bread they eat in Russia. It is even said that if we eat hard, tough food I there is no need of a brush. There was once a Cumberland farmer who cleaned his teeth only on a pound of steak."

TREASURE TROVE INQUEST SCHOOLBOY'S FIND OF £50. The finding by two schoolboys of a bag of gold led to an inquest by the St. Helen's (Lancashire) coroner yes terday (says "The Daily Mail" o£ De cember 17) to determine whether the money, £51/10/, was treasure trove. Treasure trove Is the legal expression for coin, bullion, gold or silver articles found hidden in the earth, for which no owner can be discovered. Evidence was given that on Thurs day morning, November 20, Reginald Thomas and his brother were crossing some waste land on the way to school, when they found the bag, made of calico, near some turf which appeared to have been pulled up recently. After giving sovereigns each to three com panions, they took the bag home. Mrs Lievesley was attending their mother, who was ill, and she was counting out the sovereigns in the bedroom when Mrs Thomas exclaimed, "Stop a minute. You are exciting me." Mr Thomas came in and took possession of the money. The jury's verdict was that tho mone...

COAL MINE K.C. SPENT A YEAR UNDERGROUND Mr Leslie Scott, K.C., M.P., has often surprised both his colleagues at the Bar and litigants in coal-mine disputes with hia "inside knowledge." The secret of how he acquired it was revealed in the Court of Appeal on No vember 23, in a case concerning work in a South Wales c-olliery, when Lord Justice Vaughan Williams asked, after a clear and lucid argument by Mr Leslie Seott: "Have you ever been clown a mine?" "I spent a year down one before I came to the Bar," replied -Mr Scott. Later Mr Scott said to a representa tive of "The Daily Mail": "When I was reading for the Bar it struck me that a practical knowledge of collieries would be of value to me in my future career. I knew a number of colliery managers at Wigan, and with theii permission 1 was able to enjoy a run of the mines. I have found the expeii once gained in that year useful on many occasions." One who knows Mr Scott well stated that ns a young man he was always looking out for prac...

V.R.C. AUTUMN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 26 February 1914

. V.R.C. AUTUMN.MEETING. Now that we have arrived at the season of "fair autumnal skies, when earth's ripe treasures meet admiring eyes," there is a short truce in the never-ending friendly struggle between nature and man so far as rural indus tries are concerned. Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annual pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy com>Dination between business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wrangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or - any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar t...

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES RELIEVED [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 5 March 1914

RADIUM'S WAR ON CANCER INCURABLE CASES BELIEVED While there is as yet no doctor who will say that radium is a "cure" tor cancer (says "The Daily Express"), there is among: those who have had ex perience of the treatment of cancer by radium a growing hope that its strange powers may one day be successfully harnessed. This hope has received what to a i non-medical mind seems like a very wonderful confirmation In results which have been obtained in the Cancer Cha rity Home connected with the Middle sex Hospital. But it must be under stood that medical research men are extremely unwilling to create the im pression that they have found a "cure" unless they have much stronger evi dence than has been obtained in the home. Hitherto an inoperable case of cancer has been regarded as ultimately fatal, save in the rare and almost miracu lous circumstances of a recovery tak ing place "by itself." The Cancer Charity was founded many years ago as a place in which incurable cancer patients might aw...
