Yawning. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

Yawning. "Not only is it very healthy to yawn," rays a French physician, "but artificial yawning should be resorted to in cases of sore throat, buzzing cf the ears, catarrh and like troubles." It is said to be as efficacious in its way au gargling the throat, with which process it should he combined. The reason stated is that during the act of yawning there is considerable stretching ot the muscles of the pharynx and 3sft palate, which are in this way put through a sort of massage. Besides this, in the act of yawning the throat tubes contract and drive into the pharynx the mucus that has accumu ated.

Meat Eating and Bad Temper. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

Meat Eating and Bad Temper. One desplorable result of exceasive meat eat ing in England is the ill-temper which is a chronic complaintamoungus. "In no country," declares Mr Ernest Hart in the "Hospital," "is home rendered eo unhappy and life made so miserable by the ill-temper of those who are obliged to live together as in England. If we compare domestic life and manners in England with those of other countries where meat does not form such an integral article of diet, a notable improvement will be remarked. In less meat-eating France urbanity is the rule of the home; in fish and rice-eating Japan harsh words are unknown, and an exquisits politeness to one another prevails even among the children who play together in the streets. In Japan I never heard rude, angry words spoken by any but Englishmen. I am strongly of opinionthat the ill.temper of the English is caused ina great measure by a too abundant meat dietary com bined with asedentary life. The half-oxidised products of album...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. The Quiet Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

THE LADIES' COLUMNi. The Quiet Home. Oh, mothers, worn and weary, With cores which never cease, With never time for pleasure, With days that have no peace, With little hands to hinder And feeble steps to guard, With taks that lie un?nished, Deem not your lot too hard. I know a house where childish things Are hidden out of sight ; Where never seund of little feet Is heard from morn till night; No tiny hands that fast undo, That pull things all awry, No baby hurtsh to pity As the quiet days go by. The house is all in order, And free from tiresome noise, No moments of confusion, No scattered, broken toys; And the children's little garments Are never soiled or torn, But are laid away for ever Just as they last were worn. And she, the sad-eyed mother, What would she give to-day To feel your cares and burdens, To walk your wearv way ! Ah, happiest on all thie earth, Could she again but see The rooms all strewn with playthings And the children round her Tnees ArtA P. IhAflEn

A Gang of Forgers. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

A Gang of Forgers. --0-~ For some time past the detective force both of the Criminal Investigation department and the City Police has been occupied with the closest investigation of some ex ceedingly clever Bank of England note forgeries. The spurious notes are said to be coming from Chicago, where the Exhibition affords special facilities for putting them in circulation. However that may be, the authorities agree that they are the most remarkable productions in imitation of the real thing which have ever come under the notice of the authorities in London, and there is no doubt that all that have reached London up to the present have emanated in the first place from some part of the United States. Under the circumstances, therefore it is little to be wondered that the governors of the various London banks and the police of the metropo lie should receive with .alarm the news that a notorious and particularly smart gang of American forgers are now making their way to England. These me...

The bride had delayed hbr wedding day for some months, and finally decided one Sunday afternoon to have the ceremony perlormed that evening, after the regular service was over.

How to Keep Well and Good-Looking. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

How to Keep Well and Good Looking. Lotta, the actress, is a level-headed little woman. In a letter to a friend, who wanted to know how she keeps well and good. looking, she writes:-- " Early to bed and early to rise makes a woman healthy, wealthy and wise. That has been my rule all my - life, and I have conscientiously adhered to it. Fifteen minutes after the perfkr.nance I am out of the theatre. I take a glass of milk and am ready for my bed. I have always found that a well-balanced life and a well balanced mind filled with kind feelings for others, especially those around me who are toiling for their daily bread, is one of the greatest beautifiers. A most excellent rule is to cultivate only those who are congenial, for the result is mutual benefit. It is good economy, I find, to avoid antago. nistio natures, for in such contact both are naturally injured. Nothing in the world helps to beautify one more than to appreciate his blessings-the perfect enjoyment of our five senses--with...

A Cautionus Cashier. Charles Frederick Dilliugham had a cheque which he wished to exchange tor its face value in legal tender. He tripped gaily with the precious paper to the Un'imited Trust and Deposit Company's bank. sMr Dillingham had never dealt with this bank, but he was sure he knew the cashier well enon.h to get the money without the slightest trouble, as he had enjoyed a very agreeable interview with him less than forty eight hours before. So he walked up to the window, and said "Good morning" pleasantly to the owner of the head which appeared at the opening and handed in his cheque with the utmost confidence. "I'd like cash for that, Mr ??unn," he said "Let me have it in fives, please." Mr hiunn took the paper, read it carefull3, saw that the endorsement on the back corres ponded to the name of the payee on the front, examined it upside down and right sideup, ecrutinised the edges and held it up the light to see thewater mark.

GENERAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 17 November 1893

GENERAL EXTRACTS. A farthing newspaper is the latest novelty in Paris. It is called " La Vie, and is edited by Pol Martinet, a" Anarchist, who has spent no inconsider able part ot his life in prison for his violent writings. As a farthing, or, to speak more precisely, a twond-anda-haF centime piece, is unknown to the French currency, the new venture is faced at the outset by a serious practical difficulty, but (explains the "Daily News") the pro jector gets over it in a rather ingenious fashion. The paper is to be printed on two different colors, erch color being used on alternate days. Purchasers of a paper of one color will be charged a half penny, but they will get in exchange for it on the following day, without further charge, the paper of the other color. A pretty story comes from Paris of Admiral Avelan, who is in conmnand of the Russian squadron, which was so warmly welcomed by the French last month. When, ranmy years ago, he was cruising in the Baltic, as a midshipman, amon...
