DEADLY WIND PRESSURE [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 7 February 1914
DEII)ADIY WIND PRI'IESSUIIE A theory that wind suction is the cause of many street accidents was put forward by Dr Ehrlich at an in cues at t Fulham (Eng.) on Martha Rolfe, aged sixty-six, wife of a labo rer, who was killed at Waltham Green by a motor-lorry. Dr. Ehrllch advanced the theory that the passage of such a bulky and heavily-laden vehicle would create great wind pressure, and that the woman might have been unconsciously drawn underneath the wheels. If the force of the wind created by the passage of such a heavy motor vehicle was sufficiently strong, ihe said, it might turn the woman rlght round and draw her under the wheel. A verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned,

CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 7 February 1914
CAUSES OF FATIGUE INTERESTING LIST, Professor William Stirling, of Man chester University, delivering the Lady Priestley Memorial Lecture on "Health, Fatigue, and Repose," said that most of the breakdowns in a man's life were due to himself, either because of ignorance or recklossness, or both. Overwork, without sufficient repair of an organ, whether brain or eye, digestive organs or muscles, was the primuary cause of fatigue. All the or gans of the body could not run at full speed at the same time. Mental fattgue greatly impaired bodily activity, and plhyelcal or muscular fatigue had a dis tinct effect on brain activity. The observations of Dr. Leonard Hill on the effects of a liberal supply of oxygen in fatigue were most important. Somnolence In churches and chapels soomed on occasion to occur at sermon time, out it was not in all cases to be attributed to the sermon. The ex planation lay rather in the badly-venti lated atmosphere, and In the fact that Sunday, though the first day...

LIFE IN WORKHOUSE MIX AND MUI)DIDI!, (Dy Chris Mauelo in "The Dally Mall.") By using existing institutions and by Applying to them something like conm mon sense his Department has been able In the last few years to put an end to what were known as the horrors of the mixed workhouse. The goats hliad been separated from sheep, and there had been segregations of classes and classification of individuals, Thus Mr John Blurns In the debate on Mr Carr-Gonlun's London Poor Law Bill, reported in "Thoe Daily Maill," May 26, 1911, Very nice indeed, but it is not true. Mr Burns' Department has done no thing of the kind, nor will it ever (do anything of the kind. I know that in somo other work houses, not in this one, timid attemptu have been made to segregate classes and classify indlviduals, but no very successful result has been achieved. The goat outside the workhouse is often a sheep and even a lamb inside the workhouse, and vice versa, according to the effect it has upon him. In any case,...

PAYIN(i TlE PIPER GERMAN RULERS AND COST O1 LIVING. The continual increase of the cost of living does not only trouble the Ger man working people; it is causing no little uneasiness among the German rulers (says the Berlin correspondent of The Daily Expross"), For the last three years most of these princes have been asking for "an in crease of pay," the Kalseor himuelf be ing thie first to lodge his complaint with his people, and the few who have .iot hitherto dared, or thought it adylsable, to ask for a higher civil list are now busy preparing public opinion in their reahn for the unpleasant and unavoid tble necessity of giving more money for the keeping up of the chief of the State. Still more slgnificant, the two or three German Federal princes who have so far had no civil list at all think very seriously of having one established, as their income, which is oether derived from their own (or their wives') for tune, or from the sale of titles, dignt ties, and decorations, cannot su...
