Varicose Ulcers for L Years. Farther proof of Zam-BukVre-. markable healing power over crip pling leg ulcers has just' come to hand from Auckland, N.Z. It con cerns Mrs J. Ogdon, Union St.. who for nine years was in a crippled and helpless state.

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

STRANGE HONEYMOONS. Surely one of the strangest was that of an American couple "who, in June of last year, set out from New York harbor on a honeymoon trip to the Bermuda Islands in a tiny "cockle shell" boat some 12ft. long Iby 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perience was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edgar, who were married in Peking iii the Legation chapel, on the day preceding that on which the Boxer riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few ■weeks of their married life prisoners, in the in vested city, witnessing many of the horrors of the rebellion, and going in daily fear of assassination. Another couple on the Continent, immediately after the marriage knot was tied, started off by balloon for England. Leaving Paris at four o'clock in the afternoon, they man aged to land across the Chan nel the following morning, after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds. Then an adventurous pair of Swiss lovers; both keen mountaineers, chose the summit of Mon...

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. " f It has been often asserted fcy those who know that scarcely one royal lady in Europe is really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dresses too old for their years, and some of the older garb themselves in a fashion that is too young. The Empress of Germany is the best-dressed woman on a European throne, tine does not 'buy her dresses in Paris, 'but in Berlin, London aad Vienna. Counting every item, the Kaiserin spends about £2000 a year on dress. The Queen of 'Holland is said to be the worst-dressed sove reign. In spite of this, she manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The former spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wilhe.lmina is accused of showing very 6ad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. However, she has some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only e ploys Butch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch modiste? The costumes and...

Pat was servant of a farmer, and in his charge was a donkey, which was kept to amuse his employer's chil dren. The donkey was following the farmer's wife around the yard one day, and the farmer, turning: to Pat, said: "I think that donkey is taking a liking to my wife." "Och," said Pat, "shure, and it's not the first donkey that's took a liking to her, sir." "By the way, Mrs. Smith," remark ed the vicar, after the service, "I was extremely sorry to see your hus<band leave the church in the middle of my sermon.

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. There is a mode of using hot wa ter, which is an exceedingly valuable one, according to the late Sir Hen ry Thompson in "Diet in Relation to Age and Activity." It is the habit of talcing a hot foot-bath every night before going to bed, for about ten or twelve minutes as hot as it can be borne. The effect of this on the feet, which should be immersed over the ankle, is to fill their vessels with blood— rendered apparent by their deep red color—and this affords relief, by withdrawing it from the brain. Es pecially after intellectual activity re sulting from public life, etc., as above referred to, also after prolong ed study or literary labor at night, the tranquillising effect on the ner vous system is very remarkable, and uiet sleep is promoted. Let the high est temperature which can be borne be maintained for at least ten minutes by repeated small additions from the hot-water can close at hand. According to Paris statistics, out of 2,525 wi...

START. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 16 April 1914

START. There's art in a start. Every good thing has waited for years, perhaps for ages, and only , for a starter. . The good things in our life' have waited in the same way, perhaps are waiting still. -O' The art of start is this: Just begin. "Don't wait to feel like it, for you won't. \ Don't wait till it is easier, for it never will be. • If the thing ought to be done,'start it, and start it now. Begin to-day that long-deferred task; enter upon that spiritual under taking; assume that responsibility from which you have shrunk; launch out upon that far journey from which you have shrunk; launch out upon that far journey from which you have held back. That is half o£ the art of life; start!
