THE AFTERNOON NAP. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 April 1915
THE AFTERNOON NAP. The need for a light coverlet thro.n aver a person when lying down during the day, even in a wvr. room, is ex plained by the reduce.:, circulation of the blood when the body is in a recum bent posture. When one r-s down, the heart es pecially is eased temporarily of :ts re gular work. The body depends for warmth on the vigour of the circulati.on, and, as the blood flows so much m,'re slowiy through Lhoe veins when one is lying down, the m:issing warmth must b( made up by extra covering. This temporary respite of the heart:s action also accounts for the wholes)lae ness of the afternoon nap, or for the benefit derived from the half-hour'E lying down without sleep, which so ¶Luany nervous or over-worked women Sno recupcrative.
WORRY AND BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 April 1915
WORRY AND BEAUTY. Beauty becomes a habit with a woman after she is thirty. Too many wome'i take too much out of their nervous system; they worry over trifles, and where a man would simply sit drw; and let things slide, the weaker vesse! worries and exhausts herself generally over troubles that could just as easily be avoided. In point of fact, i ho aver age woman seems to take a. delight in working herself to that stage of wearn ness when life becomes wholly a bur den. Healthy, restful sleep, and plenty of it, is one of Nature's preatest aids to beauty, and this as much as anything, allied to a cheerful temrera ment, will obliterate tired lines and shadows of weariness whose presence cannot but detract from the 'perfect beauty of even the most lovely face.
RECIPE FOR A GOOD HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 24 April 1915
RECIPE FOR A GOOD HiUSBAND. A good husband, it has been wiseil remarked, like the hare, must be caught before he is cooked. He cannot always be told at a glance, and sometimes h( emust be summered and wintered before his real character is discovered; but ii is safe to say that when caught he should be found to be composed of tin 'ollowing ingredients in suitable propor. tions:--Mlother wit, good nature, gen. tleness, strength, manliness, purity courage. But even when the full mea. 'ure of some of these necessary quali ties is lacking, a very good husband tan 'often be secured by a persjtent uns Jf the following recipe :-Wifely tact. .0 parts; wifely forbearance, 10 parts, wifely good nature, 10 parts; good housekeeping, 10 parts; good cooking: 10 parts; wifely love, 50 parts. There are some brutes upon whom even such a precious mixture will be wasted, but they are very few; and a persistent application of it, morning. noon, and night, for two years, is war ranted, in nine, cases out...

Professional Nurses throughout Australasia TESTIFY TO AND RECOMMEND NURSE ENDRES, of Burbon Street, Bundaberg (Q.), writes: "I was so ill I longed for the hour when I would be at peace." Read her letter: CLEMENTS TONIC LTD. "Until two years ago I followed my profession of LADIES NURSE, residing then at Mt. Perny. Overwork brought on a TOTAL COLLAPSE OF MY NERVOUS SYSTEM. I was treated by several doctors, but grew worse, and became so low and suffered so much that I despaired of ever being .well again;' in fact, ONE DOCTOR SAID THE END WAS VERY NEAR; and, indeed, I ONLY LONGED FOR THE HOUR WHEN I WOULD BE AT PEACE. A friend, who was most per sistent in her efforts, finally made me try Clements Tonic, AND IT PROVED MY SALVATION. Four bottles saw me up and about, and now, although well advanced in years, I am strong and active, and well able to look after the business I have.

THE great mundane controlling force of Civilisation is the logic of I events. The factors are never known, but the collective results manifest themselves, as in the war, and they will manifest themselves in the following peace. The sooner the better, for the war causes such: permanefit devastation that civilis ation is threatened with extinction, as the ancient civilisations were. This being so the absurd Greater Melbourne Bill is a crime. Mr. Gillies made the first mistake in handing over the streets of the metropolis to a private company. That raised cupidity, which cannot be allayed. An earlier miatske was made in allowing the Hobson's Bay Railway to acquire public utilities, and Mr. Andrew] Lyell had to buy it out, or the Victorian railways would have been crippled. The Ovens and Murray ,Railway, the Essendon Railway, and the Geelong Railway,,were instances of the same kind of sacrifice of public welfare to. private greed, plus newspaper greed, at the present time. Another fall ...
