The Need for Patriotism in Trade. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
The Need for Patriotism in Trade. All too often in our country towns there arises a grave cause for complaint, in that local and district people do not give to the local business man that full measure of trade and custom that his position in the district entitles him to. If we glance over the parcels that arrive at country stations we find an astonishingly large number bearing the label of well known houses in the city. Neither is the trade confined to particular items, but covers a wide field of merchandise, in which drapery and groceries predominate. The reason of this trade is hard to seek. It is difficult to understand hard-headed, practical men, in other directions, send ing their trade to city merchants who give them nothing in return except the goods they sell and for which they receive full value; while, on the other hand, the local business man spends the money that he makes in the district and his best effort to the service of the people is exercised in addition. The only ...

Diplomacy. Sunday passed. Tuesday rolled around, and still his tall form did nod loom in the vestibule when the cuckoo clock was sc.unding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl was burning with wrath. "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What have you to say for yourself? Why didn't you come?" "I couldn't," faltered the young man. "I had the dyspepsia, and the doctor told me .not to come." "What! The doctor told you not to come to see me because you had dysjiepsla?" "Well, he told me to keep away from', all sweets." The next moment she had him seat ed on the couch' telling him he was the nicest young man in the world.

HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
HEART PALPITATION. - It is rarely, if ever, that palpitation 'is diue to any disease or weakness of the heart.' It is almost invariably the "e'i?i of..nervous or digestive trouble: The.bLeat of the heart arises within s.:jelf.: I:'here - nerves in the mus .' ps of the hti.?, and they regulate S:bating, alth ...gh- the speed- or rate ''`the beating en eofrtheir choosing. Sthey ?were. no;. held in. check they ;would set a ra::-. about double that 'which is actually -maintained. The heart is supplied from the brain with two pairs -of.i'egulating nerves. One I.air, the cardio-motor nerves, act only -to spur up t e heart to quicker action. .They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-inhibitory nerves, are always in action. It has been said that the heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the simile is true, for these nerves check the speed. Fear, worry, disorder of. the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhibitory ...
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should be taught to use a toothibrush and some good dentrifice after every meal, and especially be fore going to bed at night. There are few things more offensive than an un pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if proper care is given the teeth. One of the cheapest and most enteccive dentrifices is common table salt, and if used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed. There are many dentrifices in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but some of them are harmful, and it is well to make one's own- dentrifice. If the gums are tender and inclined to bleed easily, select a brush adapted to their tender condition, and do not give them excessive friction. Your dentist will tell you a preparation for hardening the gums. without harming them. There are some gums so tender that a hard brush injures them. The teeth should be brushed downward from both sides of the upper teeth, and up ward from' both...
HEALTH NOTES. THE NOSE AS A HEATING APPARATUS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
- HEALTH NOTES. THE NOSE AS A HEATING APPARATUS. No stove or furnace that was ever made by man can equal, in etflciency the human nose. For the nose, in the space of three inches and in two sec oa~ds of L.ie, can raise the tempera t're. of the air it draws in nearly .fifty degrees, and at the same time satur ate it with moisture and thoroughly purify it. It is also a perfect titer, and thus the most important guardian of the body against disease. SAll air that is breathed into the lungs should be at a temperature of nearly 30 deg. Fahrenheit. Cold, dry air is fine for the outside of tne body, but has no place in- its interior. In heating the air the nose works-on the principle of a steam coil. It is not merely two tubes leading:up into the heac,.and so down to the throat, but from the- bones on either side three twisted bones curl out into the pass age, ohe above the other, each coated wrth elastic: cushions of blood-vessels and tiny glands. These form coils with a great, hot, damp ...

Affairs, financial affairs in particu lar, were at a more than usually low ebb with the Price family, and Queenie Price was feeling badly de pressed as she quitted one of the 'Daci entrances to Voile and Co.'s drapery establishment in Oxford-street.
