BATHS OFTEN DO HARM. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

BATHS OFTEN DO HARM. It is a mistake to think that baths are always -beneficial to one's health Under certain conditions they more harm than good, and should bo avoided as much as possible. They are particularly dangerous for per sons whose general physical condi tion is weak, as well as for those with a tendency to apoplexy or to fatty degeneration of tho h^irt A cold bath in the morning is valuable if it is promptly followed by an even increase in the, bodily tem perature. When a cola bath is fol lowed by the slightest chilliness V it is proof that harm is being done. ' The longer you stay in a\warm bath the more depressing the effect. Thi§ may be overcome to a large extent by adding salt to the water. If a stimulating effect is wanted, a hot bath should not last more than two minutes at the most, for as the temperature of the water is gradual ly lowered the bather will feel the ef fects of moist beat and will be as de pressed as he is on a humid day in midsummer. Sea bathing is h...

BISMARCK, THE MAN OF BLOOD AND IRON. What He Did for Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

BISMARCK, THE MAN OF BLOOD AND IRON. What Ho Did for Germany. Tin: hand of Bismarck, the greatest statesman Germany ever produced, can he largely traced in the present, v.ar. One of the great aims of Bis marck's policy in the 'sixties and 'seventies was to secure iiis country against attack from without through alliances and political combinations. Curiously enough, it was the manner in which he engineered certain Euro pean alliance:', which led to this "man of blood ami iron"--1 he phrase is based on the Iron Chancellor's own use of 111"' words in a speech in lS(i2—being termed the "Peacemaker" of Europe; for while his foreign policy aimed prin cipally at isolating France and ren dering her incapable of forming anti German alliances, he gradually com bined the central Powers of Europe into a Peace League, the nucleus of which was the Austro-German Treaty of Alliance, which Italy joined in ISStl. Ho successful was he in counteract ing the aggressiveness of Russia that the latter Pow...

HIS LIFE FOR FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

HIS LIFE FOR FRANCE. "We will rani all hostile aircraft." That, is the vow taken by French ami Belgian aviators, the first man to car ry out the vow being the famous French aviator Garros, who is reported to have been killed through ramming a German Zeppelin airship over Toul, in French territory. Garros in his aeroplane dashed head long against the airship. The envel ope was penetrated and the mammoth airship was dashed to earth, all the occupants being killed. The aeroplane also fell, and the intrepid Frenchman was killed. Garros was one of the world's most daring airmen, lie flew from Tnnis to Rome across the Mediterranean, and in 1912 at Trouvillc he attained a height of It!, 150 feet, and had to volplane down as his engine failed. At Tunis ill the same year he reached a height of 17,-100 feet. Last year h received the Legion of Honor. Garros' heroic feat was followed by that of a Belgian aviator, who at a height of 1,500 feet charged a German aeroplane as it flew over Liege, cu...

PROHIBITION IN VIRGINIA. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

• PROHIBITION IN VIRGINIA. For the first time in its history, West Virginia is a dry State. By virtue of the ninety thousand majority for pro hibition, the legal sale of liquor has ceased in the State, and brewery,- dis tillery, and saloon property.^ valued at £12,000,000 is rendered 'worthless.

Bennison State School. OPENING OF SWIMMING BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

Bennison State School. OPENING OP SWIMMING BATH. Although for some time past the object of having swimming pools iu connection with district State schools has been under cons:derat!on, noth ing of an advanced nature took place, until last Thursday, when, at the invitation of the Bennison school committee, a large number of peo ple form Poster, Toora. and other neighboring places journSyed to Ben nisuu to participate in the" celebra tions attached to the opening of their baths. Being established in close proximity to a running stream of water, the Bennlsoa school is favor ed with better facilities than many other schools In the way of erecting baths, and they evidently have not overlooked the fact, for the bath about to bo reflects great credit upon those who constructed it, as prior to commencing operations the water was only running ankle deep, and now a fine bath with a depth of from 3 to 5 feet, 60 feet long and 15 feet wide takes its place.

WAR AND THE MONK. History Being Repeated. Threatening the Fabric of Civilisation [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

WAR AND THE MONK. History Being Repeated. Threatening the Fabric of Civilisation It is recorded that in a monastery that once crowned the summit of an all but inaccessible peak in tho Vosges mountains an aged monk named Jo hannes Talpa, noted both for his piety and his learning, had for many years been engaged in tin? compilation of a history in twelve volumes, when a frightful wsir broke out. and devastated all the surrounding region. That was centuries ago, even before the memor able clashes at C.recy, I'oitiers and Agincourt—quite unremembered in those days of Anglo-French fraternity. Coming to the defence 01 the abbey against tho invading enemy, the sol diers sought to make it an impreg nable fortress. They pierced port holes i» tho walls. They melted the lead of tho chapel roof into balls to be hurled with their slings. Tho ene my at last succeeded in reaching the abbey and in laying siege. They at tached long-.ropes to the stono walls, but the ropes broke from the weight ot th...

Tub interest taken by the public o1 Foster and district in the welfare of the South Oippsland Hospital appears to be very infirm, judging by the at tendant at the annual meeting of subscribers which, in the first instance, had to be adjourned for the want of a quorum, and on the second occasion, a similar misfortune followed. The es tab ishment of an institution, such as we have in the local hospital, is one of the necessities of t'he place and of vast importance to every section of the community, and why such scanty re sponses toward the up keep of such a valuable institution is a matter of amazement. The hospital, which em braces a large territory of country as h means of ■jiving comfo. t to those in times of adversity, does not seem to appeal to the chiritablo feeling of people as it should do, until probably when occasion arises for them to solicit the comfort and trained n...

PRIDE OF INTELLECT. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

PRIDE OF INTELLECT. There is a kind of pride which occa sionally obtrudes itself upon our no tice, and which claims to he of a high order—namely, the pride of in tellect. For this there might seem to be some degree of excuse. Mental endowments are at least a part of the man himself, and not a mere accident of external surroundings. Vet, when we come to examine claims of this kind, do we find them valid? It is only the man of very limited know ledge who desires to air it on every occasion. The intellect that is vain of itself must be a small one indeed— so small that it cannot even see the wealth of mind and the treasures of knowledge that are beyond its present grasp. You may know all about relative values, and yet bo unable to value your relatives. Fallon (who has bought, a small farm): "Tell mo the truth, Mr. Gamey, is the soil rich or poor?" Expert Gardener: "Well, sor, T should say it wor wanst rich, but it's now in raydooced circumstances." Tho truth may cost you dear—if it con...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. To keep suet fresh, cliop roughly and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar. A pinch of salt on the tongue, fol lowed ten minutes after by .a drink of cold water, often cures a headache. When baking potatoes, cut a snip from the end of each. This will .let out the moisture and make them ap .pear mealy. • When cooking vegetables never al low the water to stop boiling all the time they are in the saucepan. * To dp so will make them sodden. After washing lamp-chimneys, try polishing them with dry salt. This gives the glass a brilliant shine and prevents it from cracking. A good treatment for unduly moist hands is to bathe them frequently in warm water to which a little alum or vinegar has been added. » When you desire to keep meat and have no ice on which to koep it, wrap it in a cloth wet with vinegar. WaBh the vinegar off before cooking the meat. When ink is spilt on the carpet rub a cut lemon over the stain immediate ly, and it will entirely disappear and not inj...

PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 5 November 1914

PROCRASTINATION. At the temperance meeting and con cert, Brother Slanks arose and started to give a recitation. Brother Slanks was a long nervous youth. The recol lection of the applause which had greeted the previous items on the programme served but to damp his ardor and make him regret the hour when he promised to speak a piece. It was a mixed audience, moreover, and critical withal, particularly in the rear of the hall. Brother Slanks got along all right until he reached the words, "He stood beside the bier!" Then his memory failed him. "He stood beside the bier!" lie repeated, trembling. The evil spirits on (lie back benches mur mured one to another. "He stood be side tlie bier!" groaned Slanks, and drew a moist, hand across his dripping forehead. "f!o on!" yelled a voice from the rear, go on—it'll get flat while you're waiting, you fool!" In the uproar that followed, Brother Slanks lied from the platform, tearing out his hair in bagfuls.

The petitions as placed before the Min ister were in no way contradicted either by the Board or the Minister. The proposition, as far as the centre r'ding was concerned, was not a very good one as it would cost £800 per annum to maintain this road and that would leave them only £200 to spend over the remainder of the rid ing. None of these points were placed before the Board or the Min ister. It was contended...
