FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 13 May 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. The latest discovery announced in 1 the Paris Academy of Sciences is that of the parasite of the flea, which, it is claimed, is the chief agent in the spread of the plague and other dis eases transmitted by this insect. Pulex irritans, as the flea is called in scientific writing, is the victim of the leishmanioses, which live in the flea's digestive tubing, and it is thia parasite of our parasite which really transmits the plague and other infec tions, and not the much-abused flea himself, who is only indirectly re sponsible, being compelled to carry this parasite once it finds lodgment in his anatomy. i The flea looks, small enough to our eye, and he is so lively that no one ever thought that any other parasite could catch him, but it seems that not only do the leishmanioses catch him, but they also catch the plague, or yel low fever, and are the most important carriers of the germs. This discovery has much to suggest to our investigators, for ...

AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. I | What Not to Do to Keep Well. Man drinks whisky, and that c^gs 1 the valves; he drinks beer, and that I clogs the wheels; he swallows lem | onade, ginger-ale, butermilk, tea, cof i fee and cocoa, and then wonders why the boilers do not burn. •If you should take an ox and put him through a like performance he would be dead in a month.

PIANO AS ANODYNE. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 13 May 1914
PIANO AS ANODYNE. The "New York Herald" quotes a curious casei'of music toeing used as an anodyne. The incident occurred at Poughkeepsie, and the subject was a boy, aged fourteen years, named Ste phen Klanatsky. An artery in Klanatsky's wrist was cut with a rope while, at play. The first repair of the artery was not suc cessful, and accordingly Dr. John N. Bassin decided to re-open the wound and do the work over again. The boy's heart was too weak for ether, and Dr. Bassin called a little girl in from next door, and asked her to play on the piano. She said it was a "jtiighland Fling." She was asked to play it as best she could, and the 'boy was directed to concentrate his mind on the music. He did so, and the surgeon perform ed the operation without difficulty. Later, the boy said he felt little pain. Dr. Bassin said he had used music as an anaesthetic on a man less than a year ago, and that it had proved eatis factory. ,
MOE GYMNASIUM CLUBS (LADIES AND GENT'S). (Special Report). [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 13 May 1914
I MOE GYMNASIUM CLUBS (LADIES AND GENT'S). ♦ (Special Report). That we are now living in an age when modern methods are being introduced into our daily existence is apparent in whatever direction we cast our eye ; therefore, nope should cause us more concern than that which is most essential to develop brains as well as muscle, more particularly where the younger generation is concerned. Of late years, men of science have given much study to how to improve health, and also guard against the human frame becoming distorted, through want of knowledge to combat against infirmities. Piiysical culturc takes pride of place among the scientists, with the result that every town of any significance boasts of its gymnasium. Moe can claim to be one of the first to establish such an institution on sound and progressive lines, which is certainly due to the praise worthy efforts i of the president and lion, instructor (Mr Robt. Johnston), who has been most successful in keeping the classes up to p...

One of his best is about a funeral in Glasgow, where a stranger took a seat in one of the mourning coaches. The other three occupants of the car riage were rather curious to know who he was, and at last one of .them began to question him. The dialogue went like this: "Ye'll be a. brither o' the corp?"

WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 13 May 1914
WHAT QUEEN MARY DISLIKES. The Tango Banned. The ultra-smart set has no friend in Queen Mary. With the freak fash ions and the eccentric pleasures of a certain section of society Her Majes ty has no sympathy. On more than one occasion, indeed, the Queen has expressed her strong disapproval of the extremes to which people carry their pleasures nowadays, and she has set her face very strongly against the periodical crazes in which the elite, in search of new and novel pas times, indulge. It has ibeen known for some time that Her Majesty considered that the latest dances, particularly the tango, are quite unsuitable for the ballroom, and neither at Buckingham Palace nor at houses which Her Majesty visits will they figure on the programmes. Not that the Queen 'objects to dan cing; indeed, she is very fond of the waltz, schottische, polka and other graceful dances. In her attitude to wards the tango she is supported toy King George, who, like the Kaiser, considers that this particular dan...

"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 13 May 1914
"POETIC JUSTICE." Making the Punishment Fit the Crime, I Some time ago a well-known writer severely criticised our present system for sending people to prison for crimes as different in character as thieving and uttering a criminal libel. He as serted that the punishment should be made more to fit the crime, and some judges, especially in America, are be ginning to follow out his ideas. For instance, the other day a man named Brant was charged in Ohio with steal ing eggs. The judge ordered him to go to prison for five days, and to be fed during the whole of that time on a diet of eggs only. At the expiration of his sentence Brant declared that he had become so tired of eggs that he would never eat another one again, so that the judge's novel sentence has effected a radical cure in this particu lar case. In California, if . a man should fail to support his wife and family, he is [ sent to prison, where he is made to work hard and pay a daily sum to his "better-half" out of the money ...

They are scarce because the but chers are killing less cattle. The butchers are killing less cattle because there is less demand for meat. There is less demand for meat be cause the price is too high. The price of meat is high because cattle are scarce. The cattle are scarce because the demand is so heavy.
