THE JAPANESE AND HEART FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 8 January 1915
THE JAPANESE AND HEART FAILURE. The .Japanese show their knowledge of anatomy not only in the jiu-jitsu method, but .also in what is known as the kuatsu. The latter is used to re store persons from a fainting spell. The method consists in striking upon the back of the seventh vertebra of the neck when the subject is- lying face downward. This veretbra is the one which is prominent at the base of the neck, and is struck with frequent mo tion by the closed hand. A reflex ner vous action is thus set up by the suc cessive shocks, and although its exact nature is not known, the" fact is that the regular action of the heart is re stored and the subject comes to his senses. Then he is seated, and his arms are given a rotary movement, which stimulates the circulation and breathing. He is then required to walk, so as to give a good circulation in the lower members, and if this is ne glected there is danger that the syeope_ returns. 1

It provides a satisfactory dividing line, and solves the frontier problem in that' particular area without any trouble. The Alps provide a similar solution for France andi Italy, though -Napoleon managed to send an army across them, but the difficulties- encountered are ni$ likely to encourage a modern army to repeat the experiment. Un the night of 14th and 15th JVlay, 1800, the ad vance guard, under the command ol General Joannes began the passage of the Great St. Bernard, one of thoso passes running between the Swiss Va lois and Piedmont. A few days later the main army followed, a division crossing each day.

D. McNAMARA. Mr. J. S. Meagher appeared for the applicant, and observed that he could show that many things that Mr. Bray shay claimed for his client, and much more in addition, appertained to his client, -who was a pioneer of the dis trict, and supplied the navvies and settlers with provisions, wading at , imes through icy water to do so. Settlement could not be achieved without the co-operation of a man like that. He had conducted a hotel at Carlton, and had taken an active part in procuring the petition for the local option poll.
