In Abraham's Country. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 April 1914

In Abraham's Country. a , >. . ^ . ?- . ? ' Tlio journey from Beirut to Alep po, scarcely longer in point of mile age than from Jjondon to Manches ter, took us nineteen hours:- A good-natured Turkish officer shared the compartment, and helped to en liven the way, as well as to keep undesirables -from travelling with us. Beyond llama, on the river Orontes, we could see .several of the high water wheels which are used to ralsa water from the river to the high ground on either side. Those naura/ as thoy aro called, are of huge di mensions, some of them nearly 70 feet in diameter. - As the wheel passes through the water, small boxes are filled with the fluid, and, when they reach the top they empty ^their contents into a trough, from which the water is directed into the necessary channels. Kight and day these* wheels turn, and' are only Ho be stopped by diverting the force of tho water below into another course. Altogether, it is. a curious example of Syrian engineering, and the crea...

Ladies' Column. WONDERS OF A SMALL FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 April 1914

WONDERS OF A SMALL FJRUIT. Is it not obvious that the fruit which gives character to such a noblo preparation as the Christmas pudding must bo something more than ordinary ? The Christmas pudding of the British Isles is world-famous-nnd justly so. Ima- . giiie what it would be liko without currants. The more suggestion makea one shudder ! That famous institu tion owes its fine flavour to tho presence of currants. Other well known sweets similarly indebted i are the mince-pie, the Eccles cake, tho currant cake, and a host cf others. A general principle that holds good in nil circumstances is that where thero are currants there is sweetness-and what a sweetness, what a charming, caressing flavour is in tho fruit I Of course the use of the fruit is most beneficial to health, to soy nothing of the eco nomy of it. The following season able recipes have been specially pre pared by a leading expert in do mestic cookery '

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. Most of us suppose that wo sleep ;-because wo are exhausted. But J)r. Claparcdc, the Swiss physiologist, has just - advanced a new theory, which is to the ciTect that we sleep in order to avoid being - exhausted. The theory is that- sleep, instead of being the result of fatigue, is an impulsive self-disinfcction which the body conducts in order to get rid of the waste products . before they liavo time to produce exhaustion. Just as combustion of fuel for the production of heat and energy is .always attended by ashes and slag, so the slow combustion which pro duces heat and energy in the body is likewise attended by waste. "Since the s.cns'es never voluntarily come to rest or shut themselves oft from the outer world, a point would eventually be reached when the or ganism would perish as a victim" of general nerve exhaustion. In or der to hinder this Knture arranges betimes, i.e., before exhaustion can seriously injure the organism, to set in motion ...
