SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BATHROOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BATHROOMS. tjiuD servants are notoriously the most fortunate of their kind, but as a result of renovations at the Carlton Club the servants of that institution now claim to live in more luxurious conditions than any other servants in London. The renovation scheme originated in a survey of the servants' quarters, which was followed at once by sweep ing changes. Dormitories were swept away to give place to separate bed rooms, bathrooms have been intro duced wherever space was available, while where conditions permitted it bathrooms were built into the bed rooms. Formerly one servants' hall did duty for the whole staff. To-day there are two halls, one for the male and .the other for the female servants. In these halls are comfortable lounges, luxuri ous armchairs, well-fitted writing1 tables. On the walls hang handsome pictures, the gift of Lord Claud Ham ilton, chairman of the club.

SHINING CYLINDER KING GEORGE SET FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

SHINING CYLINDER KING GEORGE SET FASHION. The announcement that it is the de sire of the King that all Guards' of ficers in mufti should wear black coats and silk hats when in the neighbor hood of Buckingham Palace seems to point to Royal approval of recent at tempts to reinvest the silk hat with its one-time popularity. ' Many have asserted that the glory of the "topper'" is on the wane; that the coming of the lounge suit and the popularity of the motor car had brought about its downfall from shiny pre-eminence. But the "cylinder of civilisation" is re-assert ing itself in its centenary year, and the hatters are rejoicing. Inquiries elicited the statement that more silk hats are being sold to-day than ever before. The demand had been most marked, even bearing in mind that this is the tall hat season. Professional men have of necessity remained true to the old love. Now it is the turn of the man in the "street to adopt conventional headweav once more and prove his deference to the d...

Stomach Troubles Due To Acidity.* SO] SAYS AN -EMINENT SPECIALIST. So-called stomach troubles, such as indigestion, wind, stomach-ache and inability to retain food, instead of indicating that the stomach is out of order, are in nine cases out of teu simply evidence that feruietation is taking place in the food contents of the stomach, causing the form ation of gas and acids. Wind dis tends the stomach, and causes that full, oppressive feeling sometimes known as heartburn, while the acid irritates and inflames the delicate lining of the stomach. The sto mach, however is not at fault. The trouble lies entirely in the ferment ing food. Such fermentation ts unnatural, but may involve the most serious consequences it' not prevented.
