LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914

LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUDDLE. (By Chris Masslo in "Tho Dally Mall.") By Using existing Institutions and by applying to them something llko com mon senso his Departmont has boon ablo In tho last fow years to put an end to what wcro known as tho,horrors of tho mixed workhouso. Tho goats had beon separated from sheep* and thero had been segregations of classes and classification of individuals. Thus Mr John Bums in tho debate on Mr Carr-Gomm'a London Poor Law Bill, reported In "Tho Dally Mall," May 26, 1011. Very nice indeed, but it is not true. Mr Burns' Departmont has dono no thing of tho kind, nor will it ovor do anything of tho lclnd. I know that in some other work houses, not in this one, timid attompts havo been made ,to segregato classes and classify: Individuals, but no very successful result has been achieved. Tho goat outsldo tho workhouse is often a sheep and oven a liimb inside the workhouse, and vlco versa, according to tho effect it has upon him. In any case, it is ta...

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. ?Professor William Stirling:, of Man chester University, delivering the Lady PrlestleJ' Memorial Lecture on "Health, Fatigue, and Repose," said that most of the breakdowns in a man's life were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklessness, or both. Overwork, without sufficient repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was tho primary cause of fatigue. All tho or gans of tho body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fatigue greatly impaired bodily activity, and physical or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard Hill on tho effects of a. liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most Important. Somnolence in churches and chapels peemed on occasion to occur at sermon time, but it was not in all cases to be attributed to tho Bermon. The ex planation lay rathor in tho badly-venti lated atmosphere, and in tho fact that Sunday, though tho first d...

COST OF LIVING. In connection with the in vestigations regarding the cost of living conducted in November! last by means of householders' budgets, the. Commonwealth Statistician (Mr G.. H. Knibbs) states thatalthough a large number of the budget books were despatched by special request to secretaries, of organisations of, both employer's and employes for j distribution among their members, > only a small proportion of the j books have been returned. On! being asked by the Statistician for some explanation of the reasons for this, the majority of the secretaries stated that the only reason they" are able to arrive at is "general apathy," "lack of interest" or "simply pure indifference" on the part of house wives or their husbands, who will I not take the trouble involved in keeping the desired records, and ' who do not appreciate the value , of the results- The secretary of one of the leading trade unions in one of the States affirmed that though he anticipated valuable results fr...

RADIUM AS INVESTMENT There ia no more permanent way in which rroney can be invested than in the purchase of radium, it was stated at a meeting; of the governors of the Middlesex Hospital.

CHAPTER "VII. Face to Face. Gwendolen stood staring for a few moments at the strange, big bearded man, who was contemplating her with evident amusement. He-Robert? At first almost paralysed with the shock, she awakened to ,a stinging cense ot mingled anger and resentment, won dering how Ronald, whose position he was usurping, and Lady Mon tamer, who was her lost Robert's mother, dared to assert that he and her vanish ed lover-dead to everyone for over fifteen years past-were one and the same. "You-my cousin Robert? How dare you say so!" she gasped. She felt she was speaking and behaving weakly, which added to her exaspera tion. Ronald ought to have col.l her this waB Charles Daunce at once! He had (behaved like a conspirator! He gave an awkward little laugh and his bronzed cheeks reddened slightly.

A NEW THEORY OF SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 6 February 1914

A NEW THEORY OF SLEEP. That wo sleep, not became we are exhausted, but in order to avoid being; exhausted, is the way in which the Geneva physiologist, Clapareilo, formu lates a new theory. According to this conception, which hns been further elaborated by Tromner, sleep is not Iho result of fatigue, but an impulsive self disinfection process, which tho body from time to time conducts against itself, so to speak, in order to get rid of waste products before they-have a chance to become injurious. Dr. Adolf Koelseh draws ".attention to the fact that just as combustion of fuel for tho production of lioat and energy is al ways attended bv 'ashes and slag, so the slow combustion which; produces heat and energy in the body by means of metabolic changes, is likewise at tended by waste. He says : "Since the senses never come to rest voluntarily or shut themselves off from tho outer world, n point would eventually bo reached wliou tho organism would per ish as a victim of general nerve ex h...

As ho watched tho train hands struggling- with the inefficient hand-brakes the idea flashed into his mind, "If there wore only some way by which the driver could brake tho train." For months he thought of little, else except this question. Ono hot day, an ho was sitting at his desk, a littlo girl timidly approaohed him with a re quest that tho would subscribe to a magazine. Young Westinghouse, busy and absorbed, but incapable of speak ing roughly to a child, purchased n copy and turned to his work. But the end of tho task wae at hand, for in tho magazine at his elbow lay the phrase that was to solve tho pro blem of tho air-brake. His model for his famous brake had been completed, but the operating power was unsatis factory. In idly turning over the pages of the magazine, Westinghouse saw an acc...

Arrangements had been made at the inns for the "put Ing up" of the horse vehicles. There was a festlvo 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 ascended the stopa, under an awning, she stop ped short to admire the interior. The hall, ordinarily of a kind wl®ch. would pass muster as a decently-arranged entrance and escape comment, was' transformed into a bower of pale green silky draperies, festooned with roses.
