CURE FOR OBESITY ADVICE BY COUNTESS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

CUInIt I"Ot: ongi':Sl'rU, ADVICE 1BY COUNTESS. The Countess of WVarwick describes in "Harper's Bazaar" a si5»mple diet plan for women who wish to reduce their weight. She writes: After having tried every method it is my opinion that the reducing pro cess can just as well be carried out at home, under the normal conditions of everyday life. All physicians agree in the advice, "Cut out starch, sugar, and, in a less degree, fats." T'ho necessary amount of sleep is permitted, but the earliest hours of rising are greatly to the good, and all forms of exercise in the ordinary way, such as walking, riding, swimming, tennis, and golf, together with sea bathing are encouraged. These help to cure so long as they are not overdone. The elimination of starch-some 60 per cent. of our food value-is inclined to debilitate, and one must be cautious or a worn, scraggy appearance-most unbecom ing-will ensue, as so often happens to women undergoing a "cure." I will introduce the personal note in giving...

MAKING SOLDIERS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 23 January 1914

MAKINGi SOLDIERS .---4---c - Speaking at a dinner given in his hpnor by the Society of Authors in Lojndon on November 27, Field-Mar shal Lord Roberts touched upon the necessity for having men trained for the field. They could not be trusted, he said, no matter what their courage might be. to fight an enemy unless they were trained. He could give them many instances, of what could be done by a very few trained soldiers, men who believed in their own skill with their arms and who trusted their comrades :alongside them or even at great dis tances apart. Fighting nowadays was a different thing from what it was even in the days of the Crimean WVar. the Indian Mutiny, or the Peninsular WVar. The first battle he was at was at Delhi. At that time they were in close order, touching each other in fact. The non commissioned officers and men were shoulder to shoulder, and the firing commenced, as at Vaterloo, at 40 or 50 yards distance. On the Heights of Abraham. Wolfe did not give the word unt...
