Death of Dr. Hugh Kirkland. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 24 July 1915
Death of Dr. Hugh Kirkland. Between seven and eight o'clock on Fri- day morning the soul of Dr. Hugh Kirkland winged its way into eternity. Although the news was not unexpected, there were on every hand expressions of general sorrow and regret, whilst in numerous homes in which the deceased had ministered the feeling was that akin to a family loss. Com- bined with the professional skill and atten- tion, he possessed that invaluable quality of inspiring confidence and faith in the sick which inspires relief and convalescence. For some years he has been in failing health, undoubtedly due to a strenuous professional life which told the inevitable story on him physically. For the last two months he was confined to his bed until heart failure brought the end. Deceased had almost at- tained the age of 59, nearly half of which he spent in Australia. Hugh Kirkland was born in 1856 in the town of Darvel, in &nbsp; &nbsp; Ayrshire, in the Highlands of Scotland. In 1888 he was ...

This is a statement bf fact easily provable : the laundry claims and cleanses every week the clothes we wear, our bed, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker chiefs,' tdwels and curtains.

BOXING. Lithgow Stadium. SELLERS V. QUIRK. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
BOXING. Lithgow Stadium. SELLERS V. QUIRK. (By 'Ringsider.') 'JLhere was a very poor attendance at the Stadium on Saturday night last to witness the boxing contest between George Sellers and Billy Quirk (both of Sydney). The, contest, which went the full 20 rounds, was interesting throughout. Plow is it that boxing contests are not witnessed by the usual Lithgow followers of the game?

They Wanted Work. On Monday ar^ out-of-work' appealed to a local public official for work. In answer to a question he said he would very soon get a: reference— and he did. He adjourned to the most convenient resort;', obtained pen, ink, and paper, and wrote himself out one. He did not blot it in his hurry, and so pre sented it with the ink wet. That ruse so Yin.iriAfi th« rislhlft faculties of the milesian to whom it was presented that he just hol lered the out-of-work out of the office. An other toil-hunter cheerfully approached a business man in a small way and asked for a couple of days' work, just to keep him going, adding that he had been to the Small Arms Factory, but the .money there 'was no good to him.' Well, he got a shift, per medium of the door way.

MONDAY, 8.30 A.M. Some Reflections on a Boiling Copper. 'The copper's boiling' — this is the com mon phrase of early Monday, the housewife's call to the weekly Usk. Let us follow it with a question that is not so simple as it sounds : 'What is it boiling for?' Most people would answer, 'Why, to boil the dirt out of the clothes, of course.' Quite so, but for health's sake something more than dirt has to be done away with in the household washing, namely, the seeds of infectious diiease. Infection may be communicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single patient, . of which the smallpox epidemic is a case in point. It is due to tiny organisms, hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease. These float in the air or dust and drift to clothes and house linen as naturally as steel draws to a magnet j we call them ' Germs,'1 or seeds of disease, because just as an ordinary seed grows to a plant, so a disease gerin on a human bod...
