"FOOTSCRAY INDEPENDENT.' PROPOSED NEW POST OFFICE. An agitation is gaining strength to have another post ollico establishedl in Foot sctay. to nerve the northern uand western end. With tho extension of population, it is found a heavy drag by mnanyy people, to was virtually fromll o01 etnd of tile city nearly to the other extremity to transact Ipostal business. It is suggested that an elfort should be made to have a ftlly equipped post office established in Barltly street. \Fhen the matter is looked at closer, it is quite apparent that in this. respect the district is not well provided for. There are others which could be mentioned that have infinitely more postal facilities. All the time thie business at the Nicholson street office keeps growing, and the increase to say nothing of the cquestion of convenience, fully justifles an other establishment. At the meeting of tile West Fostseray Progress Association. the imatter was discussed, while several other residents are arranging, we ...

I'UIBERCOLOSIS. AND NUTRITION. Defective nutrition and over fatigue both favour an attack of tuborcolosis. The main agents responsible for pro tection against an invading organism when once it has entered. the tissues are the blood cells-especially the white cells, or leucocytes. In cases of ;malnutrjtiion the blood serun is lacking in those elemuents which en able the white blood corpuscles, to seize and devour the germs of disease; and in cases of over-fatigue these same soldier cells are so poisoned by pro ducts 'of fatigue that they are Incap able of actingR:YJ.CUý,lvý,tl"'ýný"c c sequence is thlat the microbes of con sumption, in these conditions, not meeting with sufficient resistance, are afforded the opportunitw of multiply ing rapidly, and of becoming perma nently established in the system.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS ---+--- Very large hats are extremely difficult to hang p securely. This difficulty cat be overcome by stitchin a teapot tape to tihe head-lining of the. hat T loop is easily slipped over ansy hat-peg. When an invalid's roam needs sweeping. the best way is to wipe up the carpet ra idly with coarse towels wrung out of cold water. This disposes of the dirt without annoying the patient either by dust or noise, and is the method employed by traised nurses. To Clean Hearthrugs: Thoroughly beat the dust out, and then wash all over with warm salt and water, and rub well with a clean, dry cloth, and they will look as good as new. Poisons of many descriptions, which have been intentionally or accidentally taken, may almost instantly be rendered harm less by simply drinking half a pint of sweet oil. A person with a strong con stitution mighst take more. Instead of buying penny packets of table salt, put two pennyworth of lump salt in a coot oven to dry tlhoroughly. then grate ...

He ihans found incubators which he states sere used in Egypt 5000 years ago. The secret has been well guarded, but it is laid hare at last. They haud no oil stoves or gas or electric heated incubators but they had ovens which worbed better, even though they required more coistant tend ing. Each oven waus calculated to hold 7000 eggs, and the fuel by which it was hecatedl consisted of cliopped straw and idiiig. hut for the last ten dlays of the batcehiiig the eiiergy was susplieid alto gethler by the chickeiis thcmselves. It is t te coninionist error of those operating our moderns incubators to use too muchs heat, especially towards the end of the pieriol, and iiow we may learn from the old Egyptians how not to do thiiigs as well as how to do them.

Sunday Railway Facilities. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 22 January 1914
Sunday Railway Facilities. "Scrutator" writes-"Tle inrush of pas sengers at the station on Sunday morn ings on the Esscndon line, ?particularly at 3fooneo Ponds, is quite beyond the scope of attention of the railway officials. Last Sunday morning, for example, about 30 passengers missed the first. train through inability to get tickets served. Why on earth is only one ticket window opened when there is ample accommoda tion provided by additional windows, but not used. I don't blame the local indi vidual who is doing his best issuing ex cess fares. The exact amount to be com puted is something in the shape of a conundrum. Pram tickets, dog tickets, fares to anywhere and e?orywhere, which is-enough to engage his attention-bnt I do blame the Commissioner for the un dermannuing, and the local aitlhorities for not opening the window until the train is just coming into the station. Will our councillors get a resort on this mat ter with a view of more attention to Sun day travellers, and a...
