"I NEED A TONIC." How often have you heard the re- mark passed:-"I need a tonic"? If you are feeling fagged out physically, and your brain won't act quickly and clearly, you should not hesitate about taking a course of HEAN'S TONIC NERVE NUTS. They restore to the human system the elements of healthy nerve tissue, and pure, rich blood, thereby overcoming lassitude and the hundred and one aches and pains which afflict the lives of neur- asthenic subjects. Hean's Tonic Nerve Nuts are sold by all leading chemists and stores, price 3s. per box, or six boxes for 17s. 3d. Have you Leard the story of the skipper who ran a small steamer up and down a northern river which shall be nameless? One day, at low tide, he managed to get his vessel on a mud- &nbsp; bank, and after he had exhausted his entire vocabulary in describing the river, his erring steamer, and his still more to be condemned crew, he lean- ed gloomily over the side waiting for the tide to rise. Very soon ho saw approach...
ONE FOR THE COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
ONE FOR THE COAST. &nbsp; &nbsp; Celeran disappointed once more in the sprint, but there did not seem any particular reason for making him a good favorite, as he could not win at Mowbray on the previous Saturday, and &nbsp; he had 6lbs. more at Longford to make up for thc class and some smart gallopers to meet as well. Molly Chi- ron, like nearly all Chiron mares, runs well when fresh, and as it was her first race since the winter, she got going quickly, and Sojourn was the only one to press her; though probably some of the riders expected her to come back. Seek finished well. This race introduced Golden Wire, who looked big and fresh, but still ran well with 10.0, and if ho trains on, he will win here despite big weigbts. Molly Chi- ron, who is owned by Mr, John Brown, of the North-West, is a half-sister to R.D.T., but not Malt Prince, as so many appear to think. &nbsp;
A DISASTROUS STEEPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
A DISASTROUS STEEPLE. &nbsp; The Longford Steeple fences are &nbsp; easy, but the course is about the most &nbsp; tricky in the State, and falls-and run- &nbsp; ning off are generally frequent. Out of ten starters really only one "finish- ed'' on Wednesday, as though Tapall got round without mishap, he was tail- ed off a furlong or so. Sultan even gave him a long start after being re- mounted half a mile from the post, and then beat him home. It was a &nbsp; terrible exhibition for a horse like Tap -al! He looked on the light side, if anything, so apparently had done a good deal of work. With half a mile to go, the race waa resolving itself into a great struggle between Bellenza, Sul- tan, and Torpaz, tho two former chop- ping and changing in the lead. Bellenza struck and came down, and Sultan went over him, while the latter slewed round and caught Torpaz as he landed. This left Melokim to go on alone, and she nearly made a mistake at the seco...
GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
GENERAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; Ernebank, who looks very well, came &nbsp; a cropper at Longford, and may be &nbsp; sore for bis race at Devonport to-day. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sultan, looking as bright and wiry &nbsp; &nbsp; as ever, has recovered his punch, and &nbsp; &nbsp; should shape well at Devonport to-day. &nbsp; &nbsp; Backers will go for Rise if he runs &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; in the Limited Handicap at Devon- &nbsp; &nbsp; port to-day. There was some doubt &nbsp; &nbsp; during the week as to whether his &nbsp; &nbsp; party would go for this race, as they &nbsp; were anxious to lose his maiden certifi &nbsp; -cate in a small race. &nbsp; Sojourn has been got fit again, and on his Longford run he should be good &nbsp; over five furlongs at Devonport to- &nbsp; day. Young Hector ran very w...

DANGER OF INFECTION. PATIENT TO PATIENT ONLY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
DANGER OF INFECTION PATIENT TO PATIENT ONLY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Lieutenant-Colonel Makgill, a New &nbsp; Zealand Health Officer, has made an interesting statement in reference to the danger of infection from those nursing influenza patients. He said that some people seemed scared that contact with attendants from the hospitals would cause infec- tion. As a matter of fact, he pointed out, there is no clinical evidence that the disease is carried by a third person. All agree that the transmission of the infection is directly from one patient to another. The organisms carrying the disense die very rapidly, and those working in laboratories expérience the greatest difficulty in obtaining live cul- tures. Such difficulty is due to the rapidity with which the organisms die. This fact easily explains that the organisms that lodge in clothes die so rapidly that the clothes of those in contact with patients carry no disease. A p...
