TENDER FEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
TENDER, FEET. During the holidays many holiday makers take long tramps, and not in frequently get sore feet. A nurse at one of the London hospitals recom mended an acquaintance to rub par afiin oil well into the soles of the feet night and morning, the stockings to be changed once, if not twice, in the day. If the feet are extremely tender, and it be possible, the double change is advised. When the weather is very hot, and the feet burn much, as they sometimes do, the suggested treatment will relieve the sensation. The odour of paraffin certainly is not agreeablo, but when it is a choice of evils the lesser may be chosen. A powder consisting of the follow ing ingredients is recommended for giving ease to tender feet:-French chalk, five ounces; oxide of zinc, three quarters of an ounce; eucalyptus oil, thirty drops. Sift the powder and dust the inside of the socks or stock ings with it. .A homely means to pre vent galling of the feet is to cut pieces ci brown paper to the shape of th...

Eat After Bathing. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
Eat After IBathing. Have sonisthing to cat whenl you come out of the water. This iss par ticularly necessary .for children, who will deroar buuns by the dozen after a bathe, and enjoy them thorog hly, especially it they are allowed to mouoch round in their bathing things and bask in the sun. Of course, if it is cloudy, they must take their wet things off at once. Unless you eat sometlhin, after a dip, you are rather apt to suffer from that dull, tiredl, headalchy feeling, which often follows a specially energetic plunge. Never stay in the water one momlent longer thain you feel inclined. If yvo begin to shiver, or if you notice that your finger nails are turning blue, yon must comne out immnunediately, and lose no time in stimulating your flag ginm circulation with a b risk rub down? with a rough towel. Never try to force children into the water. If you take them out deep and then dipl them suddenly, you may give them a shock from wvhich they never recover.

A GOOD REMEDY. If a child should have tilhe misfortuno to contract ringworm, shave off the hair round the atffected part, and paint it with iodine. This is a very good remedy. A coating should be applied every day un til a cure is ellected. If. however, she L la r'otrlcted it very badly, medical ad vice should at once be eought. Manlly mothers, at the first appearance of nits in a chiid'a hair. will at once ruthlestly sha?I:: off the little one'i locks, hlOever lolng anld luxurianlt their growvth. This is by no lnsctl necessary, i? there are nla11y ointments and proeparations nlow on the market which are effective ilt destroying the parasites after one or two applications only. Be careful, how ever, to eue a preparation which does no harm to the roots of e hair. Very often children lose large quantities of hair as a result of the appllication of too drastic a remedy.

HANDS AND NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Essendon Gazette and Keilor, Bulla and Broadmeadows Reporter — 1 January 1914
S HANDS AND NAILS. Children should be trained early to take great care of their nails. This is especi ally essential for girls, for it is upon the care given to their hands in early childhood that the appearance of their hands when thoe grow up will depend. Teach a child to keep her nails tilo roughly clean and neatly trituled, and to push them well back after washing, to ensure tho presence of half-moons. In this way they will griaually assume a pretty shape. The toe nails should be regularly Lat also. Never cut a child's toe nails in a ourve at the sides, as this is the canus of that distressing complaint-in.growing too nail. Only the best toilet soaps should be used for clhilsren. In the case of infants this is especially essential, as their skin ss verysensitivo indeed. All cheap fancy soaps should be avoided.

Don't Use Force. The best thling to do with a timid child is to put some boller friend in charge of her, so that she may pull and coax thie other from the shore into thle sea. Chlildren are amazin' ly clever in mina iging each other. and a child whro would shriek herself bllack in tho face if slheo wero dipped by fatlier or Inotlier, will take it all as line futn clwhen her brothers and sisters roll her in tlhe .surf.
