THE COLD BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
THE COLD BATH. If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not take it, for it is doing: you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanli ness; cold water 1 may wash off the' superficial dirt, but it does not ex tract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating effect, anl unless we get that invigorating effect from it we had better seek the invigoration in some other way. It is a mistake to get in to a bath by standing in the cold water and hesitating before taking the plunge, for this drives the blood up toward the head, and is likely to cause congestion of the blood vessels in the throat. The best way is to stand in an empty bath tub and turn on the shower, so that the cold water will strike the head and shoulders first. If there be no shower bath, souse the head' and neck first with a sponge, or duck the head under wa ter, then get in and plunge the whole body under as quickly as possible. Another mistake is to stay i...
SOMETHING IN THE EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
SOMETHING IN THE EYE. ~ Whilst taking: outdoor exercise it frequently happens that some foreign substance lodges in the eye, thus caus ing considerable pain. . There are simple measures that can be used to I remove the irritating lodgment;' Above all, keep soiled fingers and soiled handkerchiefs away from the eye, for to rub it with either may inflame it still further. A vigorous blowing of tnc nose sometimes removes the sub stance. Then, closing the lid, and rolling the eyeball round two or three times will often dislodge the speck. The upper lid drawn over the under lid will sometimes give relief. If th&lt; eye be kept closed for a short time, any foreign substance is likely to work to the edge of the lid, and is then easily removed. Copious bathing is a simple remedy often effectual; of course, if these fail professional as sistance should be sought. Milk and water is a soothing lotion for the eyes.

HOW TO BECOME HAPPY IN OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
. P] . '.» rr r.r 'n,,,; n n-i i i HOW TO BECOME HAPPY IH OLD j ACE, - It has been snid that happiness in old ago is an art, but modorn authori ties on this subject declaro that it is nothing more nor less than common sonso. "Whether it is common- spnso or an art, tho fact remains that it is poa eiblo for tho avcrago man and woman of advanced years to bo far happier than tlio young and oarly middle-aged would believo.

KEEP BABY'S HEAD COOL! [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
KEEP BABY'S HEAD COOL! j From birth the head should be habitually uncovered night 'and day indoors, and merely protected by some light, pervious cap or hat in the open air; as, if perspiration of the scalp be induccd, cold in the head, sneer ing, couri'i, etc., arc not1 unlikely to follow. Moreover, the hair may be injured in its future "growth and 'strength.- All "woollen,' silk'or other lining should be discarded, there being great tendency in childhood to irrita tion or congestion of the brain, which mismanagement, especially during and sometimes after . teething:, may fan \ into inflammation; and as in health children's heads are warmer thn.hr at a more advanced age while the bodily warmth is lower, it is wrong to increase the heat by unnecessary covering.
HEALTH IN THE HOME. KEEP CLEAN NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
[HEALTH IN THE HOME. | ?y KEEP CLEAN NAILS. Some time ago a bacteriological in stitute conductcd some experiments on dirt taken from finger nails. The process was to put in "cultivating mixtures," such as are used for sup plying germs with food on which to develop. The crop that grew from the germs in the dirt was a varied one, including 3G kinds of microcci, 18 of bacilli, and many others. That a wound, or cut, or even a scratch should never be touched with dirty nails is an obvious inference. In some parts of the country a scratch from a nail is held to be poisonous. It is not the nail, but the dirt, that gives the "poison.''

GRAIN HANDLING IN GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 February 1914
GRAIN HANDLING IN GREAT BRITAIN. There is an erroneous impression that few facilties exist in British ports for discharging grain in bulk. The facts are that more tfhan 80 per cent, of the British wheat imports are landed in "bulk. At most of the ports of entry there is provision made to re ceive the loose grain, especially at London (where 90 per cent, of the wheat is received in buik), and also at Leith, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow and Hull. As Great Britain oSers the main market for the grain exported from the United States, Canada, Russia (practically all of which comes in bulk), and the Argentine (more than half of which is already shipped in bulk), the facilities at the British-and the Con tinental ports in the same measures are designed more and more for bulk handling. The bulk of Australian wheat ex ports is rarely landed in bags on reach itig the home market. The bags are cut in the ship's hold, the loose grain pumped direct into bulk barges, which convey it to ...

LORD ROSEBERY [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914
LORD ROSEBERY Dr. Brandcs, tho great Danish critic, now in England gives high praise to Lord Rosebery as an orator in an ar ticle in "T.P.'s Weekly." "Lord Rosebery," ho says, "has a nover failing dignity; instead of incis lveness and mordancy the charm of quiet eloquence and the delicate, re strained fancy that elicits now a smile, now laughter. As a man and as a speaker he is elegance personified. And such is his mastery that, when he says anything witty or amusing, his face preserves the most imperturbable gra vity. Only when the answering ap plause reaches him does that face break into a smile that positively enchants one by its coquettish rogiilshness. "For Rosebery is thoroughly coquet tish as a speaker; again and again he charmed one with gentle coquetry. He spoke, for instance, of the destructive power of old ago which thinned the hair-ho passed his hand over his head, which was well covered-and reduced the teeth-he pointed to his mouth, which was in good order-but although ...

BRITISH PEARLS [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914
BRITISH PEARLS In early times Britain played Its part in the production of pearls, and Taci tus rofers to British pearls, but calls them dull-colored and dirty brown. Origen, on the contrary, declared that the pearls that came from Britain held the second rank of value. It was not, however, until about the twelfth cen tury that pearls were used In England, ?when they became conspicuous In Church ornamentation. . Henry VIII. obtained some costly pearls from tho monasteries which he plundered.
THE NEXT TASK [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914
THE NEXT TASK "To explore the-most secret depths of the unconscious, to labor in what I have called the subsoil of conscious ness, that will be the principal task of psychology in the century which is opening. X do not doubt that won derful discoveries await it there, as Important perhaps as have been in the preceding centuries the discoveries of the physical and natural sciences. That at least is the promiso which I-. make for it," says Professor Bergson in the "Independent."
