To the Editor of "The Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914
T'o the Editor of " T'he Advertiser." Sir,- -I am against all this talk about push and enterprise. If "Advance Footscray " wants to push let him. I don't. I believe in peace and quietness; in the grand old policy of "steady does the trick." This isn't America where people hustle and bustle to such good effect that all the residents over forty years of age are in the cemetery. What's wrong with Footscray anyway? According to our local papers its revenue has nearly doubled itself during the last five-years ; its population has increased from 18,000 to 25,000 in the same period, and anyone returning to it after a few years' absence remarks " My, but this place is going ahead." What I can see of it we are fortunate in having a body of councillors who look before they leap. These proposals to run tramways here and there; to mnake direct roads at great expense, and to beautify parks and gardens are all tommy-rot. They mean taxing the property-owner every tinme and are quite unnecessary se...
VALUE OF HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914
VALUE OF HONEY. According to Dr. Pol Demade, or Paris, honey should occupy an hen. orablo place in therapeutics. He re. lates that his advice was asked about a tiny, emaciated baby. The child, which lay in its mother's arms, was nine months old, and gave one the feeling that it had but to close its little eyes for death to assert itself. The infant was suffering from diarr hoea, which had refused to yield to all remedies tried; the poor little crea ture was emaciated to an extreme de gree, with black rings under the eyes, and the lower stomach fearfully.large. The noor sufferer had no appetite whaUyeer, but was in its place plagued with almost incessant vomiting and diarrhoea. He ordered her to feed the infant on honey and water, nothing else abso. lutely, for eight days, and if tlhchild were still living at the end of tlhit time to give goat's milk and water in the proportioR of one to two parts respec tively, ''I dismissed the case from my mind, since I did not hope for anything b...

A Confusing Title. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 18 April 1914
A Confusing Title, "Au I entered the stateroom assign ed to me on one of the coast steamers on my last trip South I was startled to find the lower berth littered with feminine apparel," said a commercial traveller who had just returned to town. "I immediately sought out the purser of the boat and told him he must have made some mistake in al loting the rooms, as the person he had put in mine was undoubtedly a woman, if I might judge by her belong ings, "'Well;, well!' hlie exclaimed. 'There must be some mistake. Let's look at the passenger list.' "Examination of the list showed my name and that of 'Major White' as the occupants of the same room. The purser and I went to the state room, and there in the doorway stood a mild-eyed young woman. When the purser asked her if that was her room she glanced at him casually and replied that it was. "'But,' objected the officor, 'I have assigned this room to Major White. Have I the pleasure of speaking to his wife?'. "'No, sir,' was the prompt...
