LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. (Jliris Massio in "Tlie Daily Mail.") By using exist jug: institutions and by applying to them something like com mon sense his Department has been able in the last few years to put an end t&lt;» what were known as the horrors of the mixed workhouse. The goats had been separated from shoe]), and there had been segregations of classes and elas^illcation of individuals. Thus Mr John Jiurns in the debate on Mr Carr-Oomm's London Poor Law Hill, reported in "The DaiJv Mail," May rju. Very nice indeed, but it Is not true. Mr Lurns* Department has done no thing of the kind, nor will it ever do anything of the kind.

PAYING THE PIPER C.ICKMAN IUJLERS AND COST OP LIVING. The continual increase of the cost of living does not only trouble the Ger man working people; it is causing- no little uneasiness among the German rulers (says the Berlin correspondent of 'The Daily Kxprcss"). For Liu* la:-it three years most of these princes have been asking 1'or "an in crease of pay," the Kaiser himself be ing the first to lodge his complaint with iiis people, and the few who have not hitherto dared, or thought it advisable, to ask for a higher civil list are now busy preparing: public. opinion in their realm for the unpleasant and unavoid able necessity of giving more money for the keeping up of the chief of the State. ^till more significant, the two or three German Federal princes who have so far h;ul no civil list at all think very seriously of having one established, rs I heir income, which is either derived from their own (or their wives') for tune. or from the sale of titles, digni ties. and decorations,...

It was well that there w s a wide car riage-drive and a large stable-yard, for the place was well stocked with motor-cars when, Miss Hallduro had slowly driven in. Arrangements had been made at the inns tor the "put ing*up" ot the horse vehicles. There was a festive air about the trees and shrubs and house front, electric lights having been festooned about, producing the effect of a shower of fireflies; and as Gwendolen ascendod the steps, under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind which would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was transformed into a bower of pale green silky drap.ries, festooned with roses.

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 12 February 1914
CAUSES OF FATIGUE 1N" TIC RE STIX G LIST. l^rofessur William Stirling. of Man chester University, delivering tlio Lady I'riesticy Memorial Lecture i>u "Health, Fatigue, ami ltepose," said tli.'it most of tlie breakdowns in a man's life were duo to himself, cither because of Ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, without sullieient repair of an orjran, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primary cause of fatigue.

The observations of Dr. Leonard Ilill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence in churches and chapels seemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, out ft was not in all eases to lie attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in tlie badly-vcnti iated atmosphere, and in the fact that Sunday, ...
