HEARTLESS PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914
HEARTLESS PEOPLE. K li ear 11 ess n ess is of two kinds. There is the lieartlessuess of the person who has become callous through his own fau?u. Another kind of heartlessness u> characteristic of a class of people who, us it wore, are "born so." They arc naturally incapablo of feeling any thing acutely, and arc strangers dee^> ciaotiou. Iieartlossness is far mora common',^ than somu of us imagine, for it is not*'; always easy for us to detect. Many.y' heartless people are good citizens, and' 41; gocnl friend.-'., frequently possessing qua- ai .lities that in u way atoue. They may . be just, generous, high-minded nnd^j useiul, and they arc as a rule, levej^r^j hea&lt;led. One variety of heartless man is vi|pfflay dangerous.

A DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 4 March 1914
Pi DOCTOR'S VIEWS ON TEA AND COFFEE. Writing on the subject of tea, coffee and cocoa, Dr. G. H. R. Dobbs says:— Tea, coffee and cocoa contain prac tically the same stimulating active principle. The difference between tea and coffee is a difference of aroma The difference between cocoa and the other two Is a difference of nutrition, as cocoa Is a positive food, which the others are oot. Always, I think, we may conclude that the East India teas are rather more "excitant" than the China teas, in all teas the thein (ac tive principle) Is combined with tan nic acid; and our object should be to drink the one (thein) without the oth er (tannin, as it is loosely called). Therefore, tea should not infuse too long—what is called "stand." Recol lect that very hard water will not make very good tea without prepara tion. Milk and sugar make a food of it. Ar.d tea made with boiling water and infused for fivp. minutes is Si most excellent pick-me-up in condi tions of temporary exhaustion. Al ways ...
