Books That Are Read [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
I Books That Are Read i We have thought it may interés our readers to. know something a bout Hie contents of our Public Library. Those who have not been long on the subscription list we hope will find our criticisms some small assistance to them when choosing their books We do not confine ourselves to the new books as often books which have been a long time in the library and which well repay the reader have been overlooked by many patrons of the institution. Dudley, by Curtis Yorke is a ro- mance of conventional type in which for a long time the course of love certainly does not run smoothly. However all ends well. A very en- joyable book for those whose taste is towards clean wholesome romance. The Settler by Ralph Connor This boor is a fine one and deals with many interesting phases ofCan adian life in the back country. The Doctor of Crows Nest and The Pro- spector are also two graphic tales by tlie same author. Bounty Boy by Frank Bullen - The story is of a .Vorfall: Island lad ...

TREATMENT OF PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
TREATMENT OF PNEUMONIA. I The great needs of the body in pneumonia are plenty of air, water, and rest. Over-feeding and wrong feeding arc responsible for a loss of energy used up in an attempt to til- gest, assimilate, and excrete unsuit- able foods. Meat broths are not useful, because they make no energy anil tax the kidneys. Sugar is a valuable energy-producing food, ami leaves nothing but water and carbon dioxide to be eliminated. Failure to keep the patient in a horizontal position, so as to aid thc heart in carrying on thc circulation, is res- ponsible for many deaths.
SYRINGING THE EAR. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
SYRINGING THE EAR. This is a little operation which is often required, as for instance, when the ear feels stopped up, and the hearing becomes dull, because there is too great an accumulation of wax. The first thing to remember is that the water must not be cold; it must always be at least lukewarm, and sometimes may be used rather war- mer with benefit. A short, hard rubber syringe or a glass one may be used, but both must work easily without jerking. An ordinary hand basin should be ready to hold the water, and also to catch the current as it . returns from the ear. The I operator shou)&lt;l| tlien take hold ol thé earj-'or auricle, at its upper hack edge and draw it gently upwards and backwards to straighten the car. tilaginous part of the auditory-canal and facilitate the entrance of the water. Tlie nozzle of the syringe held close to the ear, bul not poked in, should then be directed bael;, wards and forwards, to send the stream of water to the depth of the canal of the...
Health in the Home. RELIEF FOR TOOTHACHE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
Health in the Home. RELIEF FOR TOOTHACHE. Spirits of nitre mixed with alum and applied to the cavity of the tooth affected with toothache will usually relieve the pain, even though the nerve be exposed. It is best ap- plied on a little cotton. If the pain extends upwards to the eye, or takes thc form of neuralgia, procure some horseradish leaves, take out the stems, wet them, and apply on the face over the seat of the pain. This will generally bring relief.
REPAIRING A WORN KNIFE BLADE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
REPAIRING A WORN KNIFE BLADE. When the blade of a favourite pocket knife, after constant usc, be- comes like A, Fig. I, it is more dan- gerous than useful. 'Po cut down the already worn blade would leave only a stump, but if the blade is fastened in a vice and the point B filed off until it is like C, Fig. a, thc projecting point A, Fig. i, will sink into the handle as shown at D, Fig. 3, and the knife will be given a new lease of usefulness.
THE DURATION OF SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
THE DURATION OF SLEEP. Sleep, like food and drink, is one of the essentials of life. Seven, eight, or possibly nine hours, are required for the rest and the refresh- ment of our physical energies. He who cuts down his sleep is burning the candle at both ends. The man or woman who successfully courts sound sleep on reaching thc pillow, and who takes as much as nature re- quires, is capable of doing an enrrm ous amount of hard work daily. Sleeple-*ncss is a grave symptom. Its warning should be promptly heeded before it is too late, fer in- somnia is often a precursor of most grave nerve and brain disturbances.
RADIUM AND CANCER. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
RADIUM AND CANCER. While radium as a cancer remedy has hardly given the hoped-for re- sults, Dr. Louis Wickham, of Paris, after .renting 600 cases, has con- cluded that the substance has real value, if not a regular cure. The best and most rapid effects are ob- tained by "combining radium with surgery. Operations are made pos- sible that could not be attempted formerly, while other advantages are gained, and the experienced sur- geon finds in radium great progress in the unequal fight against a ter- rible disease.

THE SIXTH SENSE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
THE SIXTH SENSE. In an article, "Can Telepathy Explain All?" in the "Contempor- ary Review," Mr. \V, T. Stead says : We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses whose forms some mortals can see, and "whose voices arc audible to many amongst us. Even if these Invisible Entit- ies be demons from the nether, pit, or if they be mere Thought Forms thrown off from the unconscious minds of the living with intent to deceive their fellows, the reality of their existence and the nature of their attributes deserve thc study of those whom they are attempting to deceive. If on the other hand it bc true, as all the religions have ever taught, that we are compassed about by a great multitude which no man can number of Angels, Min- istering Spirits, and the spirits of our Beloved dead, amongst whom there may also lurk malign Intelli- gences, Deceiving Spirits, Minis- ters of Evil, the subject is one that calls still more imperiously upon the careful study of all serious men. For the door is now...
A QUERN'S EXPLORING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
A QUERN'S EXPLORING EX- PEDITION. A book, entitled "New Light on Ancient Egypt," contains an inter- esting account of an expedition dis- patched for tho purpose of discover- ing perfumes : "In those far-away days," the author remarks, "much perfume was used, not only for the toilet, but for thc incense required in the religious services. This the The bian priests could procure only through traders, and the essences lost in fragrance by their slow tran- sit in Africa; also they were liable to be adulterated. In the light of these facts, Queen IIatshopsouitou determined to send an exploring 'ex- pedition into thc 'Lands of In- cense.' " This was almost as much of an undertaking as Columbus' voyage. The Torts of Incense' were known only by hearsay, and thc perils of the sea were not thc less terrifying because they were visionary. lint the queen lilted out five sound ships, equipped them in the most approved fashion, loaded them with goods likely to find favour with savages, and launch...
SPEECH: "A GHASTLY WORD." [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
SPEECH : "A GHASTLY WORD." -? Many a nervous man would pre- fer a week's solitary confinement in a secluded cell to answering a call lo- a speech. So fearful a thing it is to find yourself on your legs, fac- ing an expectant audience, without a word to say. You rise to your feet in answer to the call-but as you do so all pow- ers of thought and speech are atro- phied. A wave of misery breaks up- on you, engulfs you, suffocates you. You could cry-but you have no voice to cry with. The tongue cleaves to the roof of your mouth. With frightened eyes you look at the faces before you, hoping against hope for a sign of mercy or for an inspiration. But the people who cry "Speech! Speech!" never have any mercy. And the more you look at them the less likely are to find in- spiration. So you stutter out, "La dies and gentlemen," and go op stuttering until some kindly »friend pulls you down,by your coat tails. " And what a donkey you feel you have made of yourself as you sit down, for all the c...
ROYAL CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 15 April 1911
ROYAL CORRESPONDENCE. -? If one were asked to speculate as to the Sovereign whose daily mail- bag was the greatest, one would hazard the Kaiser. Hut no. Then one will say, it ought to be. On the unimpeachable authority of a Paris contemporary, we learn that the Pope is the recipient ol the greatest number of missives. The mail of His Holiness consists on the average of 23,000 letters, newspapers, etc. . To go through this mass thirty-five secretaries are kept employed. The President of the United States receives nearly t.ooo letters daily and about 4,000 journals and books. The Kaiser's mail-bag consists of 4,000 letters and frequently the same number of books and papers. Our King, we learn, is favoured with 1,000 letters a day, and over 2,000 newspapers and books. Tlie Czar is not overworked in this respect for a Sovereign, His Majesty's mail-bag being given at 650 letters, etc., per day. Thc Kings of Italy and Spain have to deal with about 300 letters each. Queen Wilhelmina is sti...

Local & General News &nbsp; Mr L. Atkinson M.U.R. spoke at Deloraine oil Tuesday evening on Hie Referenda proposals. The at- tendance was only moderate. The speaker lind an attentive hearing. On Tuesday last an accident hap- pened to Mr Caleb Smith's thresh- ing plant which will prevent any further work being done for a time, The thresher was being taken on to Mr J. Smith's at Jackey's Marsh, and in order to negotiate a stiff rise which occurs at the gateway, the driver put on steam.
