THE VIRTUE OF COLD DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 February 1914
THE VIRTUE OF COLD DRINKS. Time was when the consumption of ioa-wator in the heat of summer was regarded as positively suicidal. Euro peans mado grave predictions that tlio I custom would bring about degeneration of the digestive powers of the people of this continent, leaving tho raeo clironio dyspeptics. These prophecies, however, havo not altogether beea ful filled ; and, instead, most European countries havo boon gripped by the oold drink habit. Physicians now say that cold drinks, and especially ioed drinks, are not harmful in themsolves, but, on tha contrary, wholosoino, and that any thing that cools the system during ex treme heat is likely to do good rather than harm. Instinct is, after all, a better guide than prejudice. Even the uso of ico cream at the conclusion of a meal now is regarded aa a help, rather than a hindrance, to digestion. In cooling off the stomach temporarily, tha doctors havo discovered that the re action that follows immediately bring! moro blood to Hurt...

GENERAL CAUSES OF COLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 February 1914
GENERAL CAUSES OF COLDS. The infectious nature, not only of influenza, but of the ordinary cold, is fairly certain. Tlia way in which colds iu tlio head and soro throats make tlio rounds of whole families points to the porsonal contagion. The carrying of oolda by kissing has beon sufficiently emphasised, but if colds are really infectious certainly asoptic treatment is as important as it is in other infectious disorders which are not limited to ono attack. The liandkcrchiof as usually employ ed is as far from being au aseptic device as it could well bo; used ro peafcedly and thrown in a moist con dition into the same pocket, the germs must remain there from day to day, reinfecting each fresh handkerchief, and carrying contagion back to tho mucous membrano from whence it camo. As colds seem to predisposo to other attacks instead of protecting against them, nothing is more probable -than reinfection. Many an unexplained cold may bo duo to tho wearing of a gar mont for sometime disused...
MARRIED LIFE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 February 1914
MARRIED LIFE IN JAPAN. When all parties are agreed to tho union, thej exchange the uino (pledge of oonsent), which', as a rule, consists of wine, dried fish, and silk. When the day for the nuptials has been decided upon, the bride sends to her future husband everything she possesses— dresses, furniture, and sometimes also a certain amount of money, which varies according to her position. These, says a lady writer, are the thirteen articles of faith a mother inculcates in her daughter before tho marriago core mony:— lirst—When you are married you cease legally to be my daughter. You must, therefore, obey your father-in law and your mother-in-law as if tlioy were your father and mother. Second.—When you are married your husband will bo your only lord and master. Be humble and polite. Strict obedience to her husband is a wife's noblest virtue. Third.—Bo always amiable towards your mother-in-law and your sister-in law. Fourth.—Don't bo jealous, for jeal ousy is not tho way of gaining a ...
A PRETTY STENCILLED BLOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 14 February 1914
A PRETTY STENCILLED DL0U8E. Every gii'l lilses a dainty blouso, and there are ninny beauties to bo seon in tlie shop windows. Unfortunately they are too expensive for most purses. You can always buy or make a plain .cotton voile in wliito or any colour you may prefor, and st-oneil it yoursolf. Then you'll have one quite dainty and for much less money than if you wore to buy it. A pretty way IB to leave a plain strip of material down the front on wliieJi to stencil a design, and to do the collar and cuffs to match. Place tucks at either side of the front. The blouso shown is white cot ton voilo with dark heliotrope flowers and green leaves stencilled on it. It looked very effectivo and it only took about a quarter of an hour to do the stencilling.
