PIANO AS ANODYNE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
PIANO AS ANODYNE. The "New York Herald" quotes a curious 'case of music being 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 Avas 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 "Highland 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 satis factory.

FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. Tho latest discovery announced in the Paris Academy oE Sciences is tliat 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 oE the leishmanioses, which live in the flea's digestive tubing, and it is this 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. 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 tho 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 they...

AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. Man drinks whisky, and that clogs the valves; he drinks beer, and that clogs the wheels; he swallows lem onade, ginger-ale, butermilk, tea, cof 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. The sim plest and plainest laws of health are outraged every day by the average man. Did Adam smoke? Did Eve wear a corset? Did Solumon chew tobac co? Did Ruth chew chocolates! Did the children of Israel make for a beer garden after crossing the Red Sea? Did Rebecca chew bonbons and ice cream and call for soda-water? Adam was the first man, and was made perfect from head to heel. How long could he remain so after eating plum-pudding before going to bed? Suppose he had slept in a bedroom five by seven, with the windows closed down, the doors shut, and two dogs under the bed! Suppose Eve had been laced up in a corset, worn tight shoes and hobbl...

Victoria's Electoral Rolls. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
Victoria's Electoral Rolls. THE revision of the electoral rolls for the Victorian Assembly has given some startling results. No fewer than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists : an achievement v. hich shows that the Spast Ministries were sadly parsi monious, or that electoral officials gave sorry returns for money paid them. Politicians may amuse themselves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately (or as in accurately) as their personal in terests suggest; but the average elector looking at the figures finds other matter for serious concern. The old roll gave the country electorates 363,129 voters, and the Metropolitan constituencies had 318,786; that is to say, the Pro vinces were 44,343 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad. The population and ^he political power of Greater Mel bourne was a menace The per fecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed. The-Metropolitan electorates have now 394,095 voters, and the c...
A Horrified Dandy. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
A Horrified Dandy. A dandy, who was seated on the balcony of an hotel among a large company was exquitely dressed, and very highly perfumed with musk, which is very disagreeable to some persons. A plain farmer, happening to pass near him, commenced sniffing suspiciously, and, looking around him for the cause of the musky effluvia, he soon smelt out the dandy, and thus addressed him: "I say, mister, I can tell ye wliat'll take that smell out of yer clothes; just bury 'em for a week under ground. My uncle ran agin a skunk once, and " But before the sentence was finish ed the enraged dandy sped from the crowd to escape the shouts of laugh ter, while the innocent farmer, who only meant to do him a kindness, was wondering what caused his sudden de parture. "According to this paper," observed Mr. Goodwin, "a man has lived a year on beer alone." ."Well, that's as it should be," ob served Mrs. Goodwin. "Any man -who lives on beer ought to ibe compelled to live alone."

No Wonder Joe Went. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
No Wonder Joe Went. An excited middle-aged lady bounced into a suburban police-station and ac costed the inspector on duty: • Where's my Joe?" she demanded. "Beg pardon, madam—dog, I pre sume?" said the ofiicer. "Don't you dare to presume nothing of the kind," snapped the lady. "Dog, indeed! No, sir, husband—my hus band. He's missing, disappeared, de camped " "You don't say so?" "But I'll have you to understand that I do say so, young man. How dare you sit there and flatly contradict a ratepayer?—leastways the lawful wife o£ one. I'll report you, sir. Do you hear that? I'll report you! Where's my husband?" "My dear madam " "How daro you call me your dear madam? Do you think that I came here to be insulted? I tell you my husband has decamped, and you sit there like a dummy? What do you think of that?" "Well, madam," responded the police inspector. "I haven't the pleasure of your husband's acquaintance, but I should say he is a very wise man. Constable, show this lady out!"
MARGARINE. A MENACE TO BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
MARGARINE. A MENACE TO BUTTER. The colored margarine question has received a good deal of atten tion by all interested in the butter business for Borne time. There have been immense improvements in the methods of manufacture during late years. Formerly it was made from oleo, stearine, re fined beef tallow. To-day there are three distinct kinds—oleo margarine, made from animal fats; vegetable margarine, made from nuts, mostly cocoanuta ; and a margarine made from a mixture of these two varieties. Doctors differ as to the food values of margarine. The medical superin tendent told the Bermondsey guardians a few months ago that he could not make a similar rt port as to margarine as he did when the alteration in the dietary of butter to margarine was made in 1908, as, in hi« opinion, the constituents of margarine had changed since that time, and its composition w*s not of such nutritive value now as formerly. The relatively high prices which have generally ruled of late years for butter ...

BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
BLACKIE'S SYMPATHY. A delightful story is tcl.'l of the grand old professor of whom Edin burgh is so proud. I'rofehsor Blackie was lecturing to a new class with whoso personnel he >vas very imperfectly acquainted. In answer to some direction given by the .fccturer, a student rose to read a paragraph, his book in his left hand. "Sir!" thundered Ulackie, "hold your book in your right hand." And is Ihe student would have spoken, "No words, sir! Your right hand, I say!." Tnc student hold up his right arm, ;nding piteously at tho stump of its .vrist. "Sir, I hae nae richt hand," he said, ind his voice was unsteady. Before Ulackie could open his lips, there arose from the class such a ter •ific storm of hisses as one perhaps must go to Edinburgh to hear, and bv t his voice was overborne as by a wild sea. Then the professor left his place ,md went down to the student he had unwittingly so hurt. He put his arm about the lad's shoulders and drew aim close, and the lad leaned up against hi...

A Fishy Story. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
A Fishy Story. In our town at home was a pomp ous "self-made" man who was wont to boast of his affluence. Two compan ions were one day discussing his merits and demerits. "Yes," said the first, "he is 'a big fish' now, surely enough!" "True," said the other, "hut like many big fish, he began life on a 'small scale'!" It is curious that a man and a girl who have found room in the same chair before they marry often find there is scarcely room for them in the same house after they are mar ried. Every man of sound brain whom you meet knows something worth knowing better than yourself. If you have built castles in the air your labor need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. He that would govern his actions by the laws of virtue must regulate his thoughts by those of reason. Maude: "She's such a quiet little person that I'm surprised to hear she's wearing a diaphanous skirt." Edna: "Perhaps she believes in the old saying that little girls should b...
