THE LADIES' COLUMN. HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

THE 'LADIES' COLbW. ? 1 ? HEALTH HINTS, ' ! ' . The very best tiling to relieve the pain of a sprain Is immediately to envelop the injured part in a piece of Ihlck flannel, which has been wrung out of boiling water. Fomentations of this kind should be kept up until the pain lessens. The athletic woman 'should remember that vaseline rubbed 011 the soles of the feet t lie* night previous to taking a long walk prevents soreness and aenmg. ^i»u embrocation rubbed beforehand on any set of musrles which will be brought into play prevents a great deal of the ensuing ache. j Cases of poisoning allow of no delay. Endeavor to excite voipiting by tickling the throat with a feather, or incline. the patient forward and gently beat between the shoulders. A tablespoonful of mus tard in a small quantity of warm water is nlso a good antidote. To cure a sty put the white of an egg , into a saucer, and stir into a small pinch of powdered alum. The result will be a cued. Place this between two pieces o...

TELEPHONE HYSTERIA. GIRL OPERATORS PROTEST. ALLEGED UNFAIR TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

TELEPHONE HYSTERIA. GIRL OPERATORS PROTEST. ALLEGED UNFAIR TREATMENT. Telephone girls, who are much maligned by the public, and are per haps a misunderstood class, have found a champion in Sir William Preece, late chief electrician to the Post Office. In a letter to the ' Monies, ' Sir William condemns the attitude of sub-' scribers. The subscriber never troubles about the internal service, never enters un exchange, knows nothing of what goes 011 at the switch ; he ad. dresses the female operators dis courteously, writes to the news papers, annoys, the telephone stall', and does no good whatever. ' If people would only treat us in a friendly, confident, businesslike, arid considerate ? manner,' a telephone operator said to a ' Daily Mail'' re presentative, ' there would be an end to prejudice and ill-feeling against us. ' It is quite unfai:-' for subscribers to say we are lazy. One of the ex changes has an average of only ten seconds between call and answer. They ought to come and s...

REMARKABLE GUNNERY. SHOOTING WITH LARGE WEAPONS. The records achieved by the ships of the Atlantic ? Fleet in the gun layers' test have been altogether ex traordinary. v - The flagship, King Edward, began by making splendid all-round shoot ing from her heavy guns— thirteen hits out of fourteen rounds fired from ho? 12in. weapons, and thirty hits out of forty-three rounds fired from her 9.2 s. But her 12in. record has now been beaten li.v her s'ster ship, Now Zealand, which fired sevonteen' founds from her 12in. guns in the same time, and scored fifteen 'hits. One of the l-arbette« made nine hits out of ton rounds in 2Jmin., which gives an. average rate of fire of. near ly two shots per gun' per minute. The New Zealand's 9.2*6 did ad mirably. but not quite so Well .-is the King Edward's..- They fired twenty six rounds, an'd made twenty-one hits.

A LOST SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

A LOST SHELL. A curlous; tragedy has occurred, says the 'Natal Mercury,' on a farm In the Utrecht district. A farmer named Mool man found a 4.7 naval gun shell lying on the veldt unexploded, and took It home with him. HIb sister, who wanted the shell for purposes of decoration, began to dig ouf the lyddite, and to soften it poured cold witter linnn it.

Suddenly there was a terrlPc explosion, and Miss Moblman fell dead, struck In tlie breast by a piece of shell.

TEETH AND HEALTH. REVOLUTIONARY DENTAL TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

? TEETH AND HEALTH. REVOLUTIONARY DENTAI. TREATMENT. According to ivn eminent dentist, contagion and disease lurU in U13 human mouth, and from the sjptic condition of the teeth many diseases of the kidneys, stomach, and nervous system arise. ? What is the true reason for the decSy of the teeth ? It would so.'m that, ?caries (decay) of the teeth begins at some point on the exposed enamel surface, and that it is prim arily due to the affinity 01' the nuc leus of the tooth, for tho acids of the solvents in which the tooth is perpetually, developed. What seem, indisputable proof of this theory is the fact that, if a devitalised or pulpless tooth — su cli a toolh as i.v conceded to be the subject of more rapid decay than orits with a vital pulp in tho same environment— be re moved from-the mouth and ? placed in water, alcohol, or glycerine, or simply, exposed in tho air, al! caries in that tooth is at once arrested. A revolu tionary treatment has resulted from this idea. It consists 111 ...

KING CARLOS' COOLNESS. WILD STAMPEDE AT LISBON. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

KING CARLOS' COOLNESS. WILD STAMPEDE AT LISBON. As the Corpus Christl procession went round the square outside the church yesterday (says the Lisbon correspon dent of the 'Dally Mall' on 20th June) chanting the psalm, one of tho great, lanterns, which are placed on long poles and carried by the men surrounding the sacred canopy, fell crashing among the priests. The wildest confusion followed. The priests, thinking a bomb had been thrown at the King, who was one of the bearers of the canopy, dropped their | mitres and Insignia In panic, and tried to force their way -back through the crowd and the ranks of soldiers accom panying the procession. King Carlos, however, serenely pro-, ceeded, with the Duke of Oporto and high dignitaries, without the large body of priests, who, ashamed of their un seemly behavior, dared not return to their places. The Queen and Princess Louise of Orleans, who were in the Royal tribune, attempted in vain to restrain their wild flight, assuring them by words...

READ HIS OWN OBITUARY. A NOVELIST'S EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 1 September 1906

READ HIS OWN OBITUARY. A NOVELIST'S EXPERIENCE. The Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould de scribes in the 'Graphic' what it feels like to read one's own obituary notice. 'On Friday and Saturday,'' he says, 'I had been with a friend at Sidmouth, and I had written a -postcard to him on my return to inquire whether l.had left my shaving tidy and brush in Ills house. I got a wire from him : 'Condole with you on your death. No shaving tackle here. Then came a .shower of condo lences from sympathising friends to my wife. One message was sufficiently curt : 'When and where is the funeral to be?' The following morning came congratulations by wire, and letters To the . representatives of the late S. Bar ing-Gould,' containing cuttings from the papers relative to myself. One made the liberal offer of having a complete set mounted and handsomely bound — I sup pose with the death's head and cross bones on the cover — for three guineas.

MR ROOSEVELT'S DINNERS. CHARGE OF LUXURY DENIED. 'TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.' I Mr Roosevelt has been much annoyed, | writes the 'Daily Mail.' by a recent article -in the 'Washington Post' de scribing him as a gourmand and an epi cure. and giving some alleged specimen White I-iouse menus, which were un usually elaborate. | The President sent for a reporter : of the offending newspaper, and ! made a strong denial of the state ments, declaring that he and his family had nothing better to cut than the average American household. 'For lunch,' he remarked. 'I some times have only a bowl of milk and a hunk of bread, while the children got cold roast beef.' Mr Roosevelt said that the elaborate breakfast menu given in the 'Post' was too good to be true, his usual breakfast consisting of eggs and bacon, rolls, and coffee. Instead of tho ten-course dinner which the article stated was served nightly at the White House, Mr Roosevelt said that he had generally two or three courses, all extremely simpl...

MISSING MONEY. TONS OF COPPER COINS. ! A- strange mystery of lost money Is re ported from Halifax, where terns of cop per coins to the value of L1200 are miss- ! ing. It ought to be in a great safe at j the town hall, but It Is not there, and | the corporation is bestirring Itself with great energy to account for the disap- | pea ranee. j The leakage — if that Is what the trouble is — may have begun at long \ as. seven years ago. At that time the local tramways system started its oper ation. From the beginning it has been the custom of the tramway officials to take copper in quantities of a ton or ' more to the central office with a state ment of its value. No count was made j to verify the various statements, and the money was deposited in tho Town Hall strong room. I The copper accumulated.
