TRY A LUNG BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 30 January 1914

TRY A LUNG BATH. "Our lungs, quite as well as our bodies, need baths," said a well-known physician, "especially after we have sat for three or four hours in the stale atmosphere of a theatre or church.: "Air, pure air, is the cleanser of the lungs. To bathe them the head should be thrown back, and pure, fresh air should be slowly inhaled till the lungs are distended to their utmost limit. This should be repeated about twenty-five times. "Then the pure air rushes like a torrent through the lungs, and carries out with it every impurity. "Try a, lung bath. You will be amazed to find how It will exhilarate you."

SOME OF THE BISHOP OF CARLISLE'S PRECEPTS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 30 January 1914

SOME OF THE BISHOP OF CARLISLE'S PRECEPTS. " There are two kinds of people in the .vorld: One set-who speak before they ihink-a big and bad set; and another set who think before they speak-a small and good set. I have no hope for young people who like easy things to do. Both our success and happiness de pend upon our work; If wo don't put our shoulder to the wheel of life we shan't make much out of life. It ia only weak and foolish creatures who make a fuss when they are trying to do a big thing. It is not the things you see that are the important things in life. -Tour gifts are like a fire-unless you otlr them up they will go out. ?"

A TRIP TO W.A. SOMETHING ABOUT THE CAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 30 January 1914

A TRIP TO W.A. SOMETHING ABOUT THE CAVES. Miss. Chappell, of Traralgon,   who has been visiting friends in Fremantle, West Australia, gives an interesting account of a visit to the remarkable caves at Yalling- up, and Margaret River, on South- west coast. She and her two com- panions had been strongly advised to visit the caves before returning to Victoria. Being told in Perth that the guides were very busy, they took tickets for a three days trip to Yallingup caves, intending to try to get to the other caves later. For this ticket they paid £2 12s 6d. Miss Chappell writes as follows: 'To our surprise we easily ar-   ranged to go to the Margaret River caves the day after arriving. We thought from what they told us at the Tourist Bureau that there would be a difficulty in getting seats in the motors going there but only one motor load went yes- day. They charged £1 each to go there, and one shilling each to see each cave. The night we ar- rived we saw the ma...

LOOK WELL! THEN LEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 February 1914

LOOK WELL! THEN LEAP. Have you an idea in your mind fo improving your work? If . you have then remember that if you don't aci you will see some other fellow wit!, a little more nerve than you get ahead and leave you wishing you had paic more attention to the promptings o! your mind. The head of a New York trarisporta tion company which does a great dea of business with Europe bemoans the fact that he didn't take a trip to the ather side of the Atlantic ten years before he did. His own words were: "If I hat known ten years ago what I know to day after making the journey, I woulc hare made many thousand pounds more." - ' Why didn't he go before. AI1 the time he had it in his mind, but he hesi tated and hesitated; put it off unti. some other fellow got ahead of hin. and secured the profits he could have taken. . -"If you stand near a good thing," says Andrew Carnegie, "plunge well into it. Fear is old womanish; it has kept untold millions from making for tunes."

THE ART OF PLEASING. "There are very few rules to be o!. served if yon would master the art o picasing," said a wise mother to he daughter. "In the firsv. r'.ace learn to look l'o the virtues rather than the faul's < those surrounding you. Remcmbr that there is nothing easier than t< criticise one's neighbors. If yo would tiirn your criticism to account turn it upon yourself [rather than yon fellows. Study the \coi'vcnience c people you are with, and make a rn? of putting their convenience befoi your own pleasure. "Make a rule of always appearir, at your very' best, whatever your co:\ pany may be. Study the art ot punt tuaiity, and remember that thougl folk may be unpunctual themselves there, is nothing- they dislike . mop than wasting, time waiting for theii friends."

IMAGINATION IS WORTH CULTIVATING. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 February 1914

IMAGINATION IS WORTH CULTIVATING. Thn man who can read easily a,n< intelligently holds the key 10 all hu man knowledge. . If he read with imagination aler his-mind will be progressive. He will become more and more self reliant, and will become self-confident in result of his realisation of his im aginative powers. He will each day become more valu able to himself and to his employer because he is alert and receptive, and because imagination will permeate al his ideals, his thoughts and his activi ties. The man with imagination is equa; to all emergencies, for when one way of accomplishing a desired result proves inefficient he will think of an other. The imaginative gift broadens his outlook and creates resourcefulness. To the artist, the student, and the. philosopher, the development of the imaginative faculty is of the greatest value; but to the .worker in the busi ness or mechanical world its value te nt: ie less. The man who has imaginative strength never can be downe...

A HOME MADE HAIR GROWER. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 February 1914

A HOME MADE HAIR GROWER. During the last few years an nouncements have appeared occa sionally .telling how to make a really good hair itomc that would actually make the hair grow, and it gives us great pleasure to learn that so many "who have tried it have obtained such remarkable re sults. One lady writes that im mediately after reading the for mula, she went to her chemist, anfcl had him put up. as directed, one ounce of Lavona tie Composec, j dram Menthol Crystals, and three ounces of Bay Rum. She took this home, and although her hair had been falling out terribly, and she was threatened with baldness, she 1 was astonished and delighted to note that the falling out of the liair stopped immediately, and the hair itself began to grow :n an amazing manner. In fact, she .states that it has already grown over eight inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier, and more luxriant than ever, and it is still growing. She' rubbed the tonic into the roots...

!!w Kaitnutl TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1914. The Traralgon Butter Factory. The halt-year's 'term ot the local butter factory 'closed on the 31st ult. It iis expected that when- the balance is struck a substantial margin will be shown. Under the present management the factory has . undoubtedly been gaining ground. The.-suppfy has increased, the factory has been economically managed, and (the margin of pro fit has improved, ana the position of ithe company's butter on the market has certainly not suffered. Thus it Hvili be seen that there is ample reason 'for tthe improved confidence of inilk suppliers in the factory. The position ot the tac to-day as a commercial under taking is decidedly better than it was a tew years ago. This is very gratifying to those people who provided Ithe capital'to start the factory 123 years ago, and who have stuck 'to it ever since. Hurried Motor Trip.

A PLAGUE OF THE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 February 1914

A PLAGUE OF THE NIGHT. You know what it is-Piles. Nearly drive! you mad. Hard to bear. Hard to get rid- of. But, wait a minute. Yes, you can, too. It's a case of knowing how. Knowing how means relief. It means Doan's Ointment. Doan's Ointment will do it. All itching skin diseases disap pear under the soothing influence of Doan's Ointment. Here is a proof of it: Mr D. M'Bean, blacksmith, late of Princes street, Traralgon, now living on a farm near Moe, and well known here, says:-"For some time my life was made miserable by Itching Piles. -I used remedy after remedy trying for a cure, | but there was nothing able to give i me ease. The irritation was dreadful; night and day I got no, relief. I could not sleep and could not work ^ as I should have done. A friend advised me to use Doan's Ointment, and though I had lost faith in remedies, I got a pot, be cause he was so sure it would cure me. I was surprised at the result of Doan's Ointment;, it rap idly cured me. I did not write before,...

The maize crops, too, have benefitted by ithe rain, and at the same time some fires which threatened to do damage have been checked. Mr. R. Redpatih has had a 70 ton silo~~bui!t on his farm. This has been filled with over 60 loads ot cow grass, and other fodder, .which has "been chaffed, and the whole seems to be maturing.

WHEN FRANK BULLEN RAN AWAY TO SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 3 February 1914

WHEN FRANK BULLEN RAN AWAY TO SEA. The sailor,, mast-high and swinging at ease with the roll of the ship, is a eight less common in these days ot steam propulsion than It used to be. Mr. Bullen, in his "Log. of a Sea Waif," gives a description of the sensations .when the masthead was a point of dread to him. The author was then a cabin-boy on a ship bound for Bom bay, when one rough day he heard his name called, and running aft, was met by the second mate. He put a coil of rope In my hands and told me to reeve the signal-hal yards in the mizzen truck. We carried extra long royal poles or' bare exten sions of masts above the highest point of rigging. Ours were 16 feet long, and the top was not much bigger than a man's wrist. They were crowned v^ith flat pieces ot wood the size of a cheese-plate, on one side of which was the sheave for signal-halyards. I started aloft boldly enough, but when I reached the base of the pole and saw to what height Its bareness towered above, I faltered. ...
