HEALTH, NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
HEALTH, NOTES. By Dr. Lechmere Anderson. Each dilTereut part of the body is specially adapted to perform certain duties, and no part can satisfactorily perform the function of another part. Thus, the mouth is Jitted with |?.2 teeth, a tongue and a digestive iluid. called saliva, all o£ which are needed to perform the first porrioo of the digestive process on food, but t'nfrc is 110 provision at ail made in the mouth for dealing with air. On tne other hand, the nose is most wonder fully,adapted for that purpose. Jjtie nostrils are lined wica tiny hairs, through which the entavin£ ill- is jtil-. tcred and freed from 'lust and gerilis, it then passes along a winding, l>o:iey. passage, at tlie back of the nose, i^ito the bronchial tubes, so tliat whenj i.t filially enters the lungs, it is bolli, purified and warmed. j .

CHILDREN WHO CANNOT SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
CHILDREN WHO CANNOT SLEEP. Indigestion, hunger, excitement, too much home work in their lessons, fear of the dark and loneliness are the principal causes of sleeplessness in children. Indigestion can generally be cured by giving a pinch of bicarbonate of soda in a wineglassl'ul of water, for it is almost always due to acidity of the stomach, caused by too many sweets, tea, eolfee, or other food or drink that is not suitable for young stomachs. If a child bo hungry it should be fed, a glass of warm milk and some biscuits, a cup of milk gruel or any other light and easily-digested food being given half an hour before go ing to bed. No child under twelve or thirteen years of ago should be allowed to study between supper and bed-time. »&lt;• only tires the young brain and pro duces worry about the following day's work. When a child is afraid of the dark it cannot help it, and must be hu mored and treated with sympathy. It should be taught how baseless its fears are, but, at the ...
Not a Secretary. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
Not a Secretary. Sam. had worked on Llie farm for nine years, and until his master,took to poultry-farming lie was quite satis fied with life. BuL this poultry .busi ness was a bit too much. He had to lake the eggs as they were lai^ and write the dale on them with an in delible pencil. And wor&e than .that, lie had also to write on the egg$ the breed of the hen that laid thenii . So one (lay lie marched up to the farmer. "I'm about fed lip," said he, i"and I'm going to leave. The farmer, was astounded. .."Surely, Sam, you're not going to leave me after all. these, years!" "Yes, but I. am," , retorted gam. "I've done every kind of rotten job on this here farm, but I'd sooner starve than go 011 being secretary to your old hens!" A woman who has been kissed has nil increased respect- for hej'self, which is compensation for any incon venience the affair may have caused her.. She loses the humiliating sense of. being a failure from Uie fcnii Unc point of view. - ,i

THINGS SCIENCE CAN'T EXPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
, THINGS SCIENCE CANT EXPLAIN. How sunlight turns grapes into sugar. Why the sap of trees is not frozen in winter. i Why is it that many microbes can be boiled and still live. How a bat can see to catch mos quitoes on a pitch dark uight. By what .sense a pigeon finds its way home from, a great distance. How the pain of a cut is carried by the nerves from the finger tip to the brain. How seeds sown in the autumn le gist the frosts of winter and germin ate as soon as spring comes. IIow a chicken ton seconds after.' coming out of its egg knows how to balance itself 011 its feet, run about, and peck food. How is it that, if the earth is as old as we have every reason to believe, tlie radium in it has nat yet given off all its energy, but seems to be dis charging just as much as it ever gave. • People who marry for fun have, a most perverted eense of humor.

State Governor's Visit.

' It is not possible for me to thank personally by letter all those who con tributed to the success of my visit to Welshpool and Toora, T must therefore ask you to put my intermediary in carrying those thanks. I had been anticipating my visit, to Gippsland with pleasure, I look back on it with delight. We were of course greatly favoured by the weather, during our visit to your shire, but even had it not been as favourable as it was I should still have carried away with me the recollections of a healthful country and a hospitable people.

EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. Have you ever wondered why I he c-yes in portraits painted in oils fol low you? There is something uncan ny about it. Years ago superstitious people were afraid to go Into a pic ture gallery where portraits of, an cestors were to be found. Now we know that the thing is simply an op 1 tical illusion. To produce such an effect the eyes ' of the person represented in the por j trait must be looking directly to the I front, and not towards one side. !n such circumstances the pupil of each eye is necessarily in the middle there of, with as much "white" on one side as on the other. , Obviously, this relation does not vary at all with the position assumed by the observer. The latter may stand far over on either side of the picture, and yet, from his point of view, there is as much "white" on one side of each eve as on the other, and the pupil still is in the .'riddle. Such being the case, the painted image continues to look directly at him. In the palatial mansion of ...
EAR-WAGGERS NEVER DEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
EAR-WAGGERS NEVER DEAF. You will rarely find a man who can wag his ears suffers from. deafness. The reason for this is very simple. Wagging., one's ears exercises them just as much as walking exercises the muscles of the legs. A great deal of deafness is caused the muscles of the ears becoming stiff and refusing to respond quickly to the sound waves. Quito a large proportion of children can move their ears, just as they can move the skin on their forehead up and down, but as they grow up they lose their power through want of prac tice. Tt is a mistake to let a child lose this power, for it may mean the difference between good and bad hearing iu after-years. ; Dr. M. Fernet, the famous Paris doctor, has, oven gone so far as to suggest that people should bo trained to wag their ears just as much 'tis' they are trained to exercise any other muscles of the body. Every woman wants to be loved in a particular way, and if a man knows his business ho finds out what it is, and behaves accord...

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occurred . .at r.onie oilfields in the Balm district ot Russia, on the borders of the Cas pian Sea.- One ot the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a numbeiv of iron drums full of nitro glycerine were brought down by rail from Df.r-: bend and deposited ov jr night in- a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of: canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek, named Darios, opened on>; of the drums for some reason best known to himself, and "decanted" a small . quantity of the dangerous li quid into a long thin glass used for mixing vodka. This lie plan.-d on a shelf, behind the bar. Shortly after wards there entered a workman named Borkovitcli, who was famous for the boisterous hilarity of his man ner, and especially lor his loud, res onant laughter.

Senate Pre-Election. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
»V'I Senate Pre-Election. SOME fifty, thousand Liberal electors have decreed that Senator McColI, Messrs Edgar, Hume Cook, McLean, Trenwith, and Mauger shall be the candi dates of their Party should a 1 double dissolution be granted, I and a Senate Election be necessary. The choice is a sound one. There were timid folk who feared that whatever section of the Party happened to be numerically strongest in the Leagues would force " its ticket," and endanger Liberal solidarity. If there was any danger of that happening timely warnings were heeded, for the six selected are re presentative, not of any one wing, but of the whole army which con fronts Labor. As to the individual calibre of the sixpre-elected, little need be said. Five of them have fought many well contested battles, are old Parliamentarians who will certainly not err through ignorance of any point in the game. The sixth, Mr McLean, through he has not occupied a seat in either Stale or Federal Parliaments, is the son of a po...

Her grateful father seized the rescuer of his daughter by the. hand, and, in a voice trembling with emotion, said: "Noble youth, to you I am indebted for everything. that makes life dear to me.

"You have well chosen," replied the grateful father. "I could not have given you the fifty thousand pounds just yet, anyhow, as I have not laid up that amount, being only a contri butor to the magazines; but my daughter is yours for life. Bless you, my children."

What It Meant. A good story ~:is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nur sing" a Sussex-constituency in view of the «ext election. He was earnests Iy expounding the emancipation of the' laborer to an agricultural audience,, and was approaching the heart of tlie_ subject, wlieff he ' noticed that the: countrvm'en": looked uneasily at one another. Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great deliv erance clear to their minds. He re traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelinrnary points over again. The uneasiness of the audience visi bly increased. At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door. It was a sig nal for a genera! movement.
