GREASY HEELS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

GREASY HEELS IN HORSES. By G. Heslop, B.V.Sc., iu the "Journal of Agriculture." Grease is a term used to denote a diseasce condition of the skin and subcutaneous tissues situated at the back of the fetlock joint. It is char acterised iby the production of vesi cles and pustules, which exude a par ticularly evil-smelling greasy dis charge, and which, as the disease pro gresses, brings aibout the formation of numerous wart-like excrescences, commonly referred to as "grapes." This condition of "grapes" is similar to that produced in a wound where there is an excess of granulation tis sue (proud flesh). The tissue has a plentiful iblood supply, and if injured bleeds freely. It thus acts as an irri tant, retarding healing, and assists in the continuance of the disease toy forming ridges and furrows over the affected surface, in which greasy dis charges accumulate. Grease can tie divided into two stages:— (1) Where there is a formation of vesicles followed by pustules, which finally ruptu...

Shire Health Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

Shire Health Matters. Dr L,. S. Kidcl reported to the Shire "Council meeiing as follows:— " I beg to report that a complaint has been made to me in my official capacity as Health Officer of the Shire. Several people from the township of Myrtleford visited me and made certain allegations against the management of the local slaughter yard ou the very boundary of their township. If these allega tions are true it seems... to me there are very good grounds for refusing to renew the license. I trust in the interests of public health that the council will institute a full and •searching investigation at the very earliest moment,-and once and for all insist on matters being placed on a sound and satisfactory basis. I must say I was very much impressed with what was stated to me, and really more disgusting practices I have not heard of for many a day." The report went on to state- that there were allegations made by the contractor that several people at Bright were emptying their own cesspan...

THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

the curse of respectability Respectability to-day is the chief concern of the human race, and mar riage is the matrix of respectability. Respectability is an attempt to reduce all life to a simple conventional for mula. It merges the contracts of life. It is an antidote to romance, for it limits ^one's activities in nearly every line of human .endea vor. It requires us to read certain books, to see certain plays, to dress after the prevailing fashion, to avoid certain topics of conversation. It forces upon us engraved cards and frock coats, the novels of William Dean Howells and the portraits of Sargent. It turns our minds from the important things of life to the creases in our trousers and the wings of our collars. It focuses the brains of the nation on unimportant details of philology. It limits a man to one wife, and raises his barber to a dizzy pinnacle of importance. Should the barbers go on strike to-morrow, in a week's time we should lose much of our respectability our hair w...

ON MARRYING A FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

ON MARRYING A FACE. Many men have married only a face, to have their imagination satisfied by what they considered to be beauty. As a matter of fact, when there is only a face, beauty is simply impossible. In such a case beauty is not a question of form, or outline, or color; the deep est beauty, the truest and most abiding beauty, can only be secured in association with mental and moral qualities. The form itself may be de stitute of beauty, and yet in the very face and figure there may be a strange and happy fascination because of the energy of the indwelling and all-direct ing life. To imagine that face-beauty will last, supposing it to be nothing more, is self-delusion of the most vex atious kind. Where face-beauty is as sociated with mental beauty, so much the better. Never forget, however, the old proverb which says "Handsome is that handsome does." Beauty of char acter will outlast beauty of form and beauty ,of color. The latter may be pleasant .enough for a few days, but can...

A NOTABLE MARBLE SCULPTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

A NOTABLE MARBLE SCULPTOR. There recently died at Ivry, a Paris suburb, a remarkable old man, a sep tuagenarian, named Fraissard. He died in poverty, but had lie chosen he could have become one of the most fa mous European sculptors. As it was, he finished life as he began it—more or less penniless. When a boy he was apprenticed to a marble-cutter, and he at on*"? discovered his powers in this direction. For fifty years he had con tinued to execute the most beautiful works of art, mostly in mosaics. Monsieur Fraissard's masterpiece took him nearly twenty-four years to perfect. It is a black marble table. In the middle is a chess-board, on either side of which are playing-cards arranged as fans. On the table are dominoes and dice, cigars and cigar ettes, and several coins in gold and sil ver. All these are, of course, inlaid. The materials in the table, beside the black marble, are agate, onyx, por phyry, malachite, and lapis lazuli, the tones of which are black, red, orange, blue, a...

COFFEE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

.COFFEE MAKING. To obtain tlie full flavor of coffee, it should be freslily roasted just Tie tore it is made. -The French find,,it no trouble to do this in the home, and their coffee is perfect in flavor and aroma. A coffee mill is not at all an expensive item, and although a roasting machine is a more elabor ate apparatus, results almost as good as the coffee of France can be ob tained by baking the coffee nibs for a few minutes -before grinding them in the mill. Coffee should always be kept in a tin with a tight-fitting lid, as it soon loses its delicate flavor if exposed to the air. A young preacher, who is much dis liked by his congregation for his fool ishness and conceit, considered him self greatly persecuted, -and meeting an old German friend of his in the street one day, began to tell his woes. "And tihe churchwarden actually called me a perfect ass," he conclud ed, "and my cloth prevents me from resenting insults, but I think I should refer to it in the pulpit next Sunday....

A DARING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

A DARING ACT. -A scout of the Confederate army during the American Civil "War, Wat Bowie by name, was a young Mary land lawyer at the time the conflict began. He was captured and taken to Washington, and sentenced to be hanged. He made his escape, how ever, and the following incident, told by W. G. Beymer, in the "On Hazard ous Service," shows the coolness and audacity with which he escaped re capture on one occasion— "He blundered into a camp of the enemy one morning at dawn, and saw instantly that retreat was impossible; they were ready to open fire with a dozen revolvers. Without hesitation, he strode up to the men and shouted indignantly-r " 'You make mighty free with my rails! With all this wood around you did not need to burn my fences!' "He seemed very angry. "'Who are you?' a corporal stam mered. " 'The owner of the rails, of course!' And then, apparently somewhat mol lified, he went on, 'Well, well! War is war; but don't do any more damage than you can help, boys.' "He sat ...

CORRECT BREATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 April 1914

CORRECT BREATHING. No piece of advice that the phy sician can give will bear more fre quent repetition than the pithy sen tence, "Breathe Deeply." It is a per fectly simply rule of health, yet it is constantly broken. There is no rea son why our lungs should not have all the fresh air they need for their work; the supply is unlimited. But in our folly we refuse to give them I their fair share of it, because we are too lazy to breathe deeply. We go on from day to day drawing in little, inadequate puffs of air, living from hand to mouth, as it were; and then ' we wonder why we feel tired and nervous, why our skin is sallow and our eyes dull, why we catch cold eas ily and digest our food badly. When things have come to this pass there is nothing for it but to put ourselves to school, and learn patiently to do what we wero meant to do unconsciously. There are two ways to learn to breathe. If our powers of self-disci pline are poor, as-' is the case with most insufficient breathers, it i...
