DON'T DO THAT! A Few Things Thoughtless Thousands Do Daily. "Don'ts" for Bed-time. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912

DON'T DO THAT! { A Few Things Thoughtless Thousands Do Daily. 'Don'ts' for Bed-time. A celebrated physician has been writing to the papers declaring that people don't even know how to go to bed. 'The number of patients who come to me complaining they cannot sleep,' he declares, 'is growing yearly larger and larger. What they want to .know is how to get to sleep! Even young , folk are sufferers. For years they have been steadily cultivating the , spirit of restlessness, when they , should have been cultivating sleep. Here are some 'Don'ts' that would, if observed, keep thousands from in- 1 somnia: | 'Don't take a book to bed. What j do you want reading in bed for? If | you are tired go to sleep. If you are i not tired, sit up. A bed is not an | easy chair. It is a place to go to , sleep in. ] 'Don't take your worries to bed with you. People say they can think so well while they are in bed. Well, they ought not to be thinking. A i man or woman who wants to think should do it somewhere...

MAN AND HIS CHIN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912

MAN AND HIS CHIN. In man, the front of the lower jawbone possesses a well - marked projection, known as the chin, or mental prominence, covered by a fleshy pad or corresponding shape. In all other backboned animals the jawbone slopes back without any such protuberance. It is a singular fact that the presence of a well-marked chin u associated with firm character and well tnarked intellectual qualities. This is one of the best founded rules in character delineation by physiognomy. The late Professor Huxley used to illustrate tbe matter by drawing a profile with good chin on the blackboard, and then wiping out the cliin and replacing it by a receding curve. Anyone who repeats the experi ment will be surprised at the result. The reason is not clear, but we may perhaps say that a well-developed jaw is associated with good digestive powers, which iiavt more to do with character than o ne migL at first sight suppose.

EASY ENTERTAINMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912

easy entertainment. The entertainment of guests who informally drop in unexpectedly is oftentimes perplexing. We have all had the experience of sitting stiffly in our chairs while half-a-dozen inane topics of conversation reach an un timely death. We have found that the most effective way or starting im promptu fun is to set our talking ma chine going. An amusing monologue, for instance, soon has guests and hosts laughing heartily together, and the ice 1 is broken for a congenial evening. A little of the better popular music al ways finds favor, and after that the dear old songs we all love are never failing in their power to give pleasure to young and old. The talking machine plays a large part in the family good times. Often on fine evenings the whole family at a farm may be found lounging on their roomy verandah in the twilight, list ening perhaps to the tinkle of a string ed orchestra, or the more enlivening strains of., a band, floating out from one of the inner* rooms. We have...

THE SUPREME TEST [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 9 February 1912

THE SUPREME TESTi By Elise Nokes. ! Kendrick Ruthven leaned back in his chair, his eyes fixed on the ceiling and the tips o[ his fingers lightly pressed together. There was a look on his face as of one who was lifted up, whose whole being was pervaded with the intoxicating ether ol subllmv; contentment. A glance round the cosy room, lit .up with the soft effulgence thrown by the yellow shade of the lamp, was sufficient to reveal that* the owner was a man of expensive and artistic . taste. Yet the whole place was in orderly confusion. The- desk at which lie sat was littered with proofs and books. There were books on the floor and books on the seat of everv chair within reach of his arm. Most of these volumes were uncut. Kendrick Ruthven, poet, critic, and reader to the publishing firm of which I he was a partner, was, perhaps, the | most conscientious worker in London, i His face, handsome always, was al-j most beautiful at this moment. The brown eyes were sparkling, and the , well-f...

DISORDERS OF THE STOMACH. Are responsible for nine-tenths of the ills that human flesh is heir to. If you keep your stomach right you can be pretty sure of good health. Cure your stomach and you can cure the rest. Get it in good condition, and keep it so, and you will be ablo to stop all the dosing and physicking that seems so necessary to you now. There is only one way to accomplish this purpose, and that is to ensure tlie digestion of the food you eat. Dr. Sheldon's Digestive Tabules repre sent the natural juices of Digestion as they exist in a healthy stomach, combined with tonic and reconstructive properties They actually do the work of the stomach, and enable that organ to rest, recuperate and become strong and well. In fact, under their influence a man forgets he ever had a stomach. He again becomes a man among men. Is. 6d. and 2s. 6d. per tin.
