How to Eat Wisely. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

.How to Eat Wisely. "As a universal rule in health,"saysa recent writer, "and vith very rare exceptions in disease, that is best to be eaten which the appetite craves or the taste relishes.,,Persons rarely err in the quality of food eaten. Nature's instincts are the wisest regulators in this respect. The great cources of mischief from cating are three-quantity, frequency, rapidity-and from these come the horrible dyspepsias which miake human life a burden, a torture, a living death. fly eating fast, the stomach, like a bottle being filled through a funnel, is full nnd overflowing before we know it. But the most important reason is, the food is swallowed before time has been allowed to difidle it in sufliciently small pieces. with the teeth; for, like ice, in a tumblerof water, the smaller the bits are the sooner they are disolved. It has been kcen with the naked eye that if solid food is cut upin pieces small as half a pen, it digests almost as soon, without being shewed at all, as ...

The northern hemisphere con tains 2478, and the southern hemisphere contains 3307 stars. In order to see this nuniber of stars the night mlst be nimoosile the sky cloudless, and the itmosphere pure. here the power of the unnided eye stops. An opera glass will bring out20,000; asmall telescope will bring outat least 150,000; and the most powerful telescopes that hsvehbeen constructed will show more than 100,000,000 stars.

Some of Goethe's Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

osic of Goethe's Thoughts: . Wlork makes the workman. Only 'a master can further art. There is no wisdomin savei ii trith. Originality challenges originality. The smallest hair easts its shadow. Srveryono must think in his own way. LEerybody can detect an error, but not a lie. We only acknowledge him who is of use to us. We do not possess what we do not under: stand. Mannerism is produced by missing the ideal. There are two peaceful powers-justice and fitness. Ilowing is not playing the flute; you nnst use your fingers. We are only really alive when we enjoy the good will of otlhern. A great mistake: To hold one'saeelf too high, and rate ones self too cheap. Te: best result to he derived from history is the enthusiasm it kindles. Unlimited activity of whatever kind must at last end in bankruptcy. If a man will perform all that people i require of him, lie must overrate himself.

There can be scarcely anything more de lightful than apleasant July Sunday in the old City'of Throndhjem, which is reached now four days after leaving the North Cape. The daylight in summer begins at 3 o'clock at night, thus making one long day in which to explore the town, and the old city is well worthy of a thorough acquaintance. Thirndhjem, or Drontheim, as it issometities called, is the oldest city in Norway, founded ini the year 1016 by a certain warrior king of Norway, St. Olaf, who became well known by the persuasive manner in which he wielded his sword forthe advancementof Christianity in Noriay. The city lies at the head of a fjord 'which almost equals that of liristiunia in loveliness. Behind it the hills rise in gentle slopes and the fields are wonderfully fertile for so high a latitude,forThrondhjem is ona parallel with the southern part of Iceland.
