The Use of Tea. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
Tho Uso of Tea. The use of tea as opposed to its abuse or misuse, is highly beneficial (o the system, says Dr. Musgrove, in "Nervous Breakdowns." There is no remedy equal to it for a tired head ache. It washes out the stomach and (fives it a fresh start for the next meal. A cup of tea in the early morning1 will often enable a better breakfast to be taken, and one in the afternoon be tween four and five o'clock helps to complete the digestion of the mid day meal. Furthermore, it serves a good pur pose in making the blood circulate more freely and in dilating the vessels of the skin, thus assisting in the elimination of waste matter. In this respect it is much better adapted than cold drinks in hot weather, particular ly for those engaged in active out door games, such as tennis. For it makes a more efficient thirst quench er, and by flushing out the tissues helps to prevent the onset of fatigue. Have it freshly made, take it in mod eration, and it will never do any harm. Especially i...

FROM MINE3 TO CRICKET. THEN ON TO SUNDAY SCHOOL A MARYBOROUGH SQUABBLE. For soma time past there has bean a feeling of unrest in the Mary borough Cricket Association. A head was reached with the boycot ting of M. Davoy, of Maryborough, by a suction of the Railway club, on the ground that he was a director of the Beanfort mines, and on Wednes day evening a stormy meeting of the Association was held. Argument commenced on a letter from the Talbot club stating that their delegates at a previous meet ing were not authorised to vote (hs they did) in favor of transferring a leading bowler to the Railway club because he had secured employment in the local railway workshops.

READING AT MEALS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 31 January 1914
at HEADING AT MEALS. A rory groat mistake mado by n largo number of persons—a mistake which loads to indigestion and a)] its attendant horrors—is tlio practice of reading at meals. Digestion is always * best subserved when tho mind is free from care and when tho physical pro cesfe of oi\r frames arc left to discharge their work free from norvous tram mels. It is on tho ground of the olih vation of spirits produced by cheerful association with others that "ploa>:uit company" at meals has always formed a condition of social enjoyment. The stimulus to nervous activity which is thus given acts beneficially on tho digestive powers, just as tho man who is harassed, worried, and over excited will not be likely to digest or eat a satisfactory meal. Tho habit of reading at meals is to bo condemned whoro it has grown to ono of actual ''study," and where tho reader en deavours to gain knowledge ami to save time at his meals. The solitary eater, if !.t> reads, should read what is light an...
