MELANCHOLIA. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 5 February 1914
MELANCHOLIA. The stress and strain, of modern life, and the increasing worries which people bring upon themselves in their efforts to be in the run of everything, bring about much mental depression. If people would only be satisfied to live a more simple life, well within their means, they would have a more chlr-rful outlook, which would tone up their health in a marvellous n?min ner. Indigestion or gastritis is another cause of depression, and patients recover ing from influenza often complain of it. Mental depression is always a proof that the health is seriously out of order, un less there has been some recent trouble to account for it. If it continues,, in spite of !comfortable circumstances and happy surroundings, a medical man should be consulted as it may signify a beginning of neurasthenia. The doctor will be able to find out whether it arises from dyspepsia, constipation, or impaired ni trition. Sometimes it will arise after middle life as a result of strain or stress, espe...
CHEMISTRY OF COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 5 February 1914
CHEMIISTRY OF COFFEE. Ins the Lancet it is 1 pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as have from time to time been made and pub lished Ihave referred to an examination of the entire coffee berry, and not to tile infusion as it reaches tile conesumer. TIle results are now set forth of an investiga tion into the composition of the infusion to be drunk, tile chemistry of tile "grounds" hlaving been left out of col sideration. Iu drawing it COl)parison be tween coffee and tea the results show that while the alkaloid caffeine in coffee is identical with thlat in tea, yet its asso ciations in coffee are quite different. In -tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chiefly as a tannate, which is a compound in soluble in the acid juices of the stomach. Iu coffee it occurs its an easily soluble compound. .Here would appear to be tile cxplanstion of the ipronpt action of coffee as a restorative and stimulant, Dplarticun larly when employed as an antidote to narcotic poisons. isl the same ...

Le Coultre, the distinguished Swissi astronomer who is at the head of the Geneva Observatory, has just made public his researches concerning the planet Mars, which he has been studying for the last live p.ears.
