YOUNGS CREEK WATER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
YOUNGS CREEK WATER At the council meeting last week the president, Cr Lynn, reported that he taken samples of the water from Young's Creek and sent them up for analysis. Cr Watt, who had accompanied the president, said it had been repo:rted that the water, if put in a tin vessel, would corrode in a few hours. He produced some of the water that had been kept for fivedays in a kerosene-tin. .It had corroded the tin. slightly, but. not more than any other water would have d!:ne. Smples of the water were produced, and also another sample that had been kept'ini a bottle. Several councillors tasted them and declared that the water was. gdod. Cr Johnston said it- was equal to the water in any tank in Or bat. Assuming that. councillors are qualified to deliver an opinion on the taste of water this is very satisfactory.

NEW PICTURE PALACE The enclosure which is being erec ted by Mr T. Hardy in Nicholson street was brought under the notice of the council on Friday last by the re ceipt of an application from Mr Hardy to have the place registered for a moving picture show for a period of six months. Mr Hardy notified his intention to erect a hall suitable for the purpose as soon as the bricks are obtainable. Cr Johnston thought that if the.ap plicant intended to erect a hall for the use of the public he should not be pi'evented from using the temporary structure. The President remarked- that the doors were flush with the footpath, so that they could not be made to open outward, as required by the Board of Health. : .It could not be allowed under the circumstances. The secretary read the clause of the act, showing that it applied, to: any building, structure, - circus, ;tent, gal-" lery or platform in or upon which per .sons mig!lhtassemble. -No such erec- tion could ibe built; opened 'or exten ded wit...

THOUGHTS OUT OF THE ORDINARY. The foundation of a real and hlasting success is securely laid upon the ruins which alono are apparent as the results of tho work hitherto accomplished. Lord Kelvin. The secret of success is constancy to purpose.-Benjamini Disraeli. We live in this world only that we may go onward without ceasing.-Moz art. Focus your ability upon one point un til you burn a hole in it. Genius is intensity, and digression is as dangerous as stagnation. "Ho who follows two hares catches neither." "It is the single aim that wins." Only by con contration cani you work out a satisfac tory systcmn. Get your mind on it and keep it there. Watch every point, every detail: Hang to it with a bull dog grip till you.get the thing done.

STUFFED ROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
STUFFED ROOMS. Too many tables, too many chairs, too many pictures, curtains, ,cushions, and ornaments. Too many of every thing in fact, Now there are three=- there may be a great many more-very good reasons for making a very loud protest against this unnecessary crowd ing. A. crowded room, whether a living or sleeping apartment, is not healthy, is seldom clean, and is never beautiful. Every axtra piece of fur niture, every curtain or rug, or corner fitted up with shelves and hangings, takes up so much of the given space in a room, and- makes the apartment com paratively airless.

A Question of Legs. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
A Question of Legs. In apartments a little off the highways of wealth and luxury a one-legged man found himself housed the other day. His bedroom was clean and comfort able; all the toilet requisites were pre sent in plain but essential quality. The price was moderate ; and at first inspec tion he decided he ought to consider him self fortunate. After the first night's occupancy, how ever, the crippled' man hunted up the landlady, and presented a complaint. "Mrs. Brisque," he began, "'I like to stay here first-rate; your rooms are clean; the table Is good; and everything all right except my bed. The mattress is soft, springs all right, and all that; but I didn't sleep well, the bed is unsteady it rocks back and forth-and I looked under it this morning, and found it has only three legs. "Only. three legs?" repeated the per turbed landlady in an injured tone. "Well, great goodness, that's two more'n you've got.".

I said, 'Go ahead.' and he took out eleven sound teeth before he discovered the pain came from neuralgia. " My teeth are gone, but the pain is with me just as strong as ever. "Two weeks ago I had trouble with my stomach. The doctor said it was caused by over-eating. I forgot I -had been dieting myself on child's rations ?rc.. two. weeks. and I let him physic and starve me until I was n?early e ti,l. For ten days I suffered untold agony while taking medicine and refusing to eat. One night in desperation I ate a hearty luncheon down town, and at once I felt better. I have been eating big meals rgularly ever since, and feel first rate, bul that doctor has got a bill of $80 again\ ime. and I mus...

HOME DOCTORING INFLUENZA. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 20 February 1914
HOME DOCTORING BY AGRICOLA IN THE BIENDIGO INDEPENDENT. INFLUENZA. A severe cold is often called influenza.

It primarily affects the respiratory tract, but also in volves the circulatory and nerve systems and the eye. Symptoms:=--A depression of spirits due to the shock which the nerve system receives at the first onslaught of the malady. The desire to partake of food is lost, the breathing is heavy, the ani mal appears to be nervous, has a general appearance of dejectedness, the mem branes of the eye become a yellowish color, and the animal is not at all in, dined to work. Treatment :--The treatment of in fluenza consists chitefly of counteracting the shock first sustained. The affected animal should be removed to a loose-box which is remote from where the. other animals are kept. This is to lessen the possibility of the disease going through the whole mob. The. person at...
