FOR TIIE HEALTLH Redness of the Nosd, t Redness of the nose is a disfigure. Mont which may occur from one of ieveral causes, each differing widely, Primarily, it, is often due to temporary lisorders of the circulation; secondly, :o permanent disorders of the circula ion or changes in the blood capilla. vles; and thirdly, is duo to cutaneous 2haunges or disorders of the skin. The most general is the first case, and may be attributed very frequently .o Indigestion, which is temporarily nereased by tight-lacing or by drink. nug hot fluids, Naturally the remedy for this most distressing disorder hi to pay great attention to the diges? ion, and to wear tolerably loose'tit ing garments. 0 The second cause is generally cllron .c obstruction of the circulation, eithl ar caused by a disordered liver or an excess of alcohol, which produces a listension and enlargement of the ca. pillarles under the skin of the nose, and, should this be firmly established it in very difficult to effect a cure....

EXTRAVAGANCE IN CLOTHES. Change Which Has Come Over Parls. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 February 1914
EXTRAVAGANCE IN CLOTHE8, Change Which Has Come Over ParIs, The typical Parisionno, so dainty in her alluring simplicity, so economi. cal even in her extravagance, it no more, says a recent Parisian delspatch, A young generation of women has taken up the sceptre of fashion, a wave of madness seems to have swept away forethought and prudence, money is spent recklessly oin the cap. rice of an hour, debts aro incurrod, bridge has led to gambling, and the evil grows apace, Men are to blame. Women dress to please them, and the men in Paris know as much about sartorial effects as the dressmaker or milliner. They are very sensitive on points of femin. mne attire; therefore it is a necessity to the woman who wants to )hoop love at home to dress so that her sisters can neither crtilciso nor outrival her. Take, for Instance, the all-inportant question of hats. Not so long ago 'four.-new, hats and as many "renL)ov'. lions" were considered ample for the needs of the well-dressed woman. Now she r...

THE CAT'S WHISKERS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 February 1914
THE CAT'S WHISKERS. Those sensitive organs, the cat's whiskers, are a relic of jungle days, It Is perhaps not generally known that a cat's power of discernment, especially at night, is due almost as much to his whiskers as to his eyes. To anyone who g6es to a menagerie and looks ,t the giant eats of the forest-the lion and his lihe--the purpose of these vi. brassae, as science names the hairs which project from the muzlo and from above the eyes, is evident !nough, They are delicate organs of touch, wonderful mochanisms of warning, Inach one grows from a follicle or :land, nerved to exquisite sensibility, its slightest contact with an obstacle is distinctly felt by the animal, though the hair itself is tough and insensible. These exaggerated whiskers on the muzzle often project to each side of the animal so far that from point to point they stretch to just the width of utis body,
