The subtle fragrance of the letter drew the attention of the cus tomers, who noted also the somewhat agitated angle of his hat and a certain wildness in his eyes* Making swiftly for the telegraph counter he scribbled on form after form, crushing thorn in succession and throwing them aside, ^finally,- with an air of sombre satisfaction, ho threw the last form across the counter. accompan ied l>v a sixpenny piece.

AIR SCOUTING. In actual war, both in Tripoli and in tho Balkans, aviation accidents I were consciously low, and despite the laol thai, winds were generally high in Tripoli, and tho eonBon of the year and tliu weather extremely uii lavoralilu in tho llulknns. It is a mailer of considerable phychologocial interest to noto that, tlio danger from an enemy's iiro so stimulates vigilanoo that, nerves aro tense with exortion and tlio mind is relieved from dwelling upon tlio ordinary dangers of keeping an aeroplano 011 an even keel rnd meeting every gust. In other words, scouting in actual warfare seems to be a splandid euro for nervousness. Tho aviator must tly with the assuranco of a bird, and ho does so for fear of the enemy's riilo Hro. A striking in st-ace of this pshchological phenomenon is the fato of Dr. Jules Uonstantin, a French aviator iu the Bulgarian ser vi00.

SORE THROAT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 May 1914

SORE THROAT. "All ounce of prevention," is is said, '•is worth a pound of cure";, and cer tainly the,old adago is self proven iiy the case of sore, throat. '1'rompt atten tion given to lirst symptoms will in nil probability avert tlie threatened catas trophe. It is generally horaided by headache, chilliness, and a dry, rough feeling in the. throat. To produce a thorough sweat is the most simplo way to break up a cold, and this may be ac complished by a hot bath immediately before getting into bod, wrapping one self in wanned blankets .and taking a very hot drink, lemonade, etc. One tea spoonful of coinmou baking soda to a glass of hot water, or salt water in the same proportion, makes a capital gargle, and is one which eun bo obtained at a fe»v moments' notice. Tho gargle should be as hot as can be' borne, ami used cvi*ry half hour till the inflanima .tion subsides.
