HOW TO LIVE LONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 7 January 1898

HOW TO LIVE LONG. Professor Heath Iay3 down these prac tical rules : — Fix in mind the grand truth that life power rules tho body, and that it alone can euro disease. Life power lives upon air, water, and food only ; all nlo/i iu Viiiff-fnl TvTi lr 1* nlonnlmaoo onnr' inotto, and watch against filth in both 1 house and. all around it. Few starve for want of food, but many for want of air, so breatho good air deeply. Wear no tight clothing. Above all, ventilate your sleeping-room. Beware of gluttony. If the appetite is dull, eat fruit only, or eat nothing. Use no fiery condiments, but live chiefly on natural grains, vege tables, and fruits. Never ask your stomach to chew your food ; use your teeth. Shun stimulants and drugs as you do pestilence. Instead of tea and coffee, ? drink hob water ; and in illness let the same magic fluid bo your physic. A policeman on dooty near theG.P.O., Sydney, one night noticed a man con siderably the worse for liquor walking round and round one of the ...

Presentation. On Wednesday afternoon the parents with the children of Palmer's Island assembled at the school in order to bid good-bye to Mr. and Mrs. Bates. Shortly after all were seated, Miss Maggie McPhee came forward, and on behalf of herself and fellow pupils said that in saying good-bye she hoped Mr. and Mrs. Bates would accept the accom- panying presents, as a small token of the children's deep affection ; whereupon Miss Milly Brown and Grace Maher handed a lovely biscuit barrel and valuable inkstand to Mrs. and Mr. Bates respectively. Mr. Bates, on behalf of Mrs. Bates and himself,   feelingly acknowledged their beautiful presents, endeared, as they were, by the deep affection of those with whom they had lived so long and happily. He hoped they would in future years be able to look back with the happiest of recollections on the sunny hours of childhood that they had spent under the care of Mrs. Bates and himself, and that then, if with mature judgment they could...

What is a Gentleman ? [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 January 1898

What is a Gentleman ? What is a gontloman ? ? It is a Tory old ques tion, and has been answered ia vory differont ?ways, but it is clear that tho word at least has a rotative ml not an absolute meaning as somo insist, aud that it varies with tho times. Iloro is what Lord Ohoslerlield says : — ' A gentloman always attonds evon to tho choico of his amuse ments.
