MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER SjVrom our Special Correspondent.) The Vaccination Act lias become somewhat of a l'arce. It is a recog nised thing now that the parent who has scruples as to compliance can es cape for £2. The Act is the means of bringing in a certain amount of rev enue in this way, but it cannot be said that it was designed for that purpose. The anti-vaccinationists who do their duty by the country in keeping up the vital statistics, but who do not have the little additions to the population duly inoculated arc solemnly summoned to appear at court. They do not trouble to respond. A fine of forty shillings is recorded against them. Jt is paid and,, there the matter ends. Tt would bo a much simpler process to have a place say the office of the Registrar of Births -for receiving these fines, which prac tically amount, to fees for permission to evado the Act. That would save all the trouble of invoking the majesty of the law, and would amount in the end to the same thing. The suburban ...

After much per suasion I had got the consent of my mother to go, and had. constructed a flat-boat, large enough to take the few barrels of things we had gathered, down to New Orleans.

MAKE YOURSELF AGREEABLE. Very rarely, if over, young persons acquire tho ability to converse with ease and lluency. This implies,.first of all, good ideas, clearly aiid sensibly ex pressed. An empty mind never, inade a good talker; remember, ." you calrnot draw water out of an ejnpty well.". Next in importance is self-possession.

AN ARAB'S COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

AN ARAB'S COURTSHIP. The Arab loves as none Ar-D can love; but he is also mightily excit able and easily won. An Arab sees a girl bearing water or brushwood; and, in a moment, almost at a glance, is as madly in love as if he had passed years of courtship. He thinks of nothing else, cares and dreams of nothing else but the girl he loves; and not infrequently, if. he t is disappointed in Ins affections he pines and dies. In order to com mence his suit, he sends for a member of the girl's tribe who has access to tho. harem; . and, first ensuring his secrecy by a solemn oath, confesses hii' love,, and entreats his confidant to ar range''an interview. The confidant goes tO' the girl; gives her a flower or a .blade^of grass, and says, "Swear by Him veho niatle.- this flower and us, also, {hat you will hot reveal to anyone that which I am about; to unfold to you." ; If . the/ , girl will not accept the proposal she will not tako the oath; but, never theless, keeps the matter . perfectly se...

HINTS FOR THE SCULERY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

HINTS FOR THE SCULERY. Have plenty of water, and pipingly hot, .To wasli every platter and each dish and pot, One- tiling at a time your attention should claim, And then if there's breakage you'll not be to blame. Make good use of sand when the scrubbing begins; It whitens the board3 and it cleans out the tins. Each article keep in its own proper place; - Not to know wh^re a thing is. is really . disgrace. Clean out your milk saucepan with.v nothing but salt, And then if things burn, it won't be your fault, Have some paper at hand for your hot . fryingpan, And, if very much soiled, use a handful of bran. A cork dipped in powder, will polish knives quick, But for very lino steel, do not use your bathbrick. Throw rubbish away as 'soon as you find it, The fire's the best place-so cast refuse behind it.

"WHEN SHOULD CHILDREN SING?" [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

"WHEN SHOULD CHILDREN SING?" I It is pretty generally acknowledged I now that serious studies of any kind should-not bo commenced before a child is eight years old. It takos the first seven years of his life to get over his baby ailmonts, and to establish his health, and for a year after that he should' be allowed to romp and play, learning only that' which can be ac quired without effort until he is eight, and even then not being kept 'too closely at work for another year or so. But children sing naturally from light ness of spirit, and gladness of heart, it is a subject that they acquire, like the birds, without any tuition, and one that affords them exquisite delight, that is in itself the expression of pleasure and joyfulness. A more, baby will sing to itself over its dolls aud toys, and with out any direct tuition will catch up and imitate even difficult tunes by the time it has re-ached the age of three or four. In tho face of all these-nature's own arrangements--how strange i...

Most of: us get it a little as wc grow ohlor; then merely from the deposit of fat, which makes us look comfortable and cheery, even if we do not always feel so.

WEAK HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

WEAK HEART. Many people think they have weak hearts who are really as strong as a lion. It is generally women who imag inarily suffer in this way; and when you inquire into the cause, you find they drink tea three or four times a day sometimes oftener still. Then tea, an otherwise wholesome beverage, becomes a real poison. As a rule, tea should be druuk by young people not more than once daily-preferably for breakfast, I and then fairly strong. But sometimes it is a man who is the malade imaginaire in this way. Then you find ho has been smoking too much. Most medical stu dents imagine at one time or another that they have a weak heart. That is partly because, they bbo BO many "cases of heart disease in the hospital wards but much more because thoy are apt to smoke to ati atrocio'tra excess.

ADVICE FOE THE EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

ADVICE FOE THE EYES. Shade the eyes from tlic full glare of sunlight (says the "Family Doctor"). Keep soap and dust out of the eyes. Never read or use the eyes for fine work during twilight. Have an abundance of good, steady light for any work you may havo on hand. Let the light come to your eyes from one side or from above, not from in front. Do not work in a poor light, and avoid a glaring light. When the eyes are hot: or heavy bathe them in cold or tepid water, and do not confine them too closely to any sort of work. "Whenever the eyes ache or are easily, fatigued, use them as little as possible, and look up frequently from the work to rest them. When reading, hold the head erect, and at a distance from the light, and do not bend the head over the needlework any more than is.necessary. Avoid ? poorly printed books with poor paper and poor type, and dp not read when riding in cars or carriages, nor when convales cent from a protracted illness, nor when the whole body is in a weake...

MAKING BANDAGES. Tlic following directions for making bandages are timely and useful. For tlic many tailed bandage four strands of unbleached calico are necessary, which sliould be five incites in width, and fifty-four inches in length. (The centres of«these are laid one upon the other and stitched firmly at both edges for a distance, of about .twelve inches. The stitching may be in herring* bon ing, feather stitching, or neat running,1 but it must be very.firm. There are many slight differences in the .make of these bandages. At some hospitals they -are laid ono above each' other so that each one-half overlaps the lower one. These strands . are laid to cover about oue:third of each other. The two narrow strips which are sewn to the upper edge of the bandage are thirty-six inches in length and are used to go over the shoulders, being finally pinned to the body bandage to keep it in place.

BUILDING A ZEPPELIN. The building of a Zeppelin is not the work of a day. . The mero -work on the vessels takes an entire year, and when that work is done another three months must be spent in testing. Stretched an a framework of girders there are from 17- to 25 bajloonettes from end to (end. Over these and' over the girders is an: outer skin of proofed "canvas.

In the first boat, which is entirely covered in, are two petrol engines. Behind this boat is the gangway, fitted up with sleeping berths for the crew. In tho centre is, the observation station. It is from here that the bombs are dipped, and it is in here that the marvellous steering and sighting apparatus is installed, as well as the wireless plant.

SUBMARINE'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

SUBMARINE'S EYES. In both submarines and submersibles thore is a difficulty of so discharging _ their t-orpedocs as to make striking an object a fair certainty, and much in genuity has been directed to obtaining a satisfactory instrument of vision for uso when the .vessel is in a steady posi tion somewhat below the surfaco of the . water, and that most generally used is a "periscope," or "optical tube." A total reflection prism at the upppr end of a telescopic tube is placed above the water, with a similar prism at the lower end of tho same: tube, which reflects on a, table in the conning-, to.wer and- enables an observer- to see over a limited distance the objects in his neighbourhood. If the top of tho poriscope is submerged nothing, of course, can bo seen; but for strategic purposes a submarine would seldom dive deep enough to submerge her opti cal tube. The periscope is a very min uto object, and even when the boat is running at her full submerged speed ,tho moi^ement of this tu...

THE FEET IN SUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 9 April 1915

THE FEET IN SUMMER During the -hot weather many people complain of some form of foot trouble. I Women are perhaps more affected than men, for one reason because they too .often wear unsuitable shoes, too narrow, too thin in the sole, too high in the heel, and also for the reason that their occupations keep them standing about father than actually walking. Tho first step towards the relief of acbiug feet' is to have shoes or boots that fit properly; they should not be too thin, as every stone makes itself felt through' a very light sole. To take off the shoes and put on very easy slippers at convenient times during the day will be found to give comfort. A change of stockings, . too, should lac ' made daily, two pairs boiug kept in wear at once. After a long walk, bathe the feot in hot water, then dry and rub in some eau do Cologne.
