WHO WOULD NOT LAUGH? THE BENEFIT OF LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 6 February 1877
WHO IOULb NOT LAUGH? THE BENEFIT OF LAUGHING. The saying of an old school-teaclier that " when children were. laughing, their mind. were expanding," is forcibly called to mind on reading the following excellent commrients on laughing, by Dr. Greene, in his problem of health. There is not the remotest corner or little inlet of the minute blood vessels of the human body that does not feel some wavelet from the convulsion occasioned by good, hearty. laughter. The life principle,. or the central, man, is shaken to its inner nnost depths, sending new tides of life and strength to the surfice, thus materially tending to insure good health to the' persons who indulge therein. The blood moves more rapidly, and coni-eys a different im pression to all the organs of the body, as it visits them on that particular mystic journey \vheri the man is laughing, from what it does at other times. For this reason every good, hearty laugh in which a person indulges, tends to lengthen his life, conveying,...

The Chronicle. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 6 February 1877
TUESDA Y, FEBRUARY 6,1877. IT is a good many years since one of the oldest London bankers said to a customer with a great penchant for uverunt.lr:g nis account, ' Friend, thou dost not appear to understand what banking is. Banking consists in my taking care of thy money, but thou wonld'st reverse the order of things, and make banking consist in thy taking care of my money." There has, how ever, been a great change in banking' since then, and, always supposing proper security to be given and taken, that bank which gets the largest number of customers to take care of its money, and trade on it successfully, must be the most prosperous. No bank likes to have a large and unnecessary amount of money locked up in its coffers, whether it consists of deposits, or of its own sub scribed capital, and that has led, it seems, to the withdrawal of the Bank of New South Wales-which has a larger amount than any other of uninvested capita!-'from the Associated Banks in Melbourne and to.its determin...
