USING BOTH HANDS. CHILDREN SHOULD BE AMBIDEXTROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
USING BOTH HANDS. CHIILIDREN SHOULD BE AMBI DEXTROUS. Why the human race is righthanded is one of the problems that, pop up again and again. The theory which has found general acceptance is that propounded by Dr. Ernst Weber, who sought to prove that primitive man, in his desire to protect the heart, carried a shield in his left hand, and the ag gressive weapons in the right. Sir Daniel Wilson, however, ascribes the right-handedness of the human race to a very different cause. T'le -enltre of speech is in the left henmi sphere of the brain, and Dr. Wilson believes that the lmovementls cotrol-. ling the right arm, the nerve ganglia for which are situated near the centres of speech, have developed and matured along the same lines and at the same rate of progress as language. Records dating back to primitive times, parclhments and the figures por trayed by the ancient Chaldeans and Egyptians, all point to the fact that even in those early days the race was right-handed, so that the tee...
TENDER FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
'I'TENDEIR FEET. Durlng thle holidays many holiday miakers take long tramps, and not in frequently get sore feet. A nurse at one of the London hospitals recoin mended an acquaintance to rub par alsn oil well into the soles of the feet night and morning, the stockings to be changed once, if not twice, in the day. If the feet are extremnely tender, and it be possible, the double change is advised. When the weather is very lhot, and the feet burn much, as they sometimes do, the suggested treatment will relieve the sensation. The odour of parallin certainly is not agroeable, but when it is a choice of evils the lessor may be chosen. A powder consisting of the follow ilg ingredients is recommended for giving ease to tender feet:-French chalk, five ounces; oxide of zinc, three quarters of an ounce; eucalyptus oil, thirty drops. Sift the powder and dust the inside of the socks or stock ings with it. A homely mneans to pre vent galling of the feet is to cut pieces of brown paper to the shla...

SWIMMING TEACH THE BOYS TO SWIM. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
SWIMMING TEACH THE BOYS TO SWIM. Mr. Arnold P. Newey writes a very useful letter to the "Argus," bearing on life saving from drowning. In view of recent drowning fatalities, every boy and girl should be taught to swim. At tie Nagambio Weir Mr. Johnson plunged into the water to rescue his drowning child, but both fa ther and daughter were drowned in sight of his other children, who were in a. boat with him. Subjoined is the letter: 'Sir,-The acounts of to-day of ba thing fatalities prompt me again to ask you to bring under the. notice of the bathing and swinming public the fact that- this society has instructors ready and waiting to teach swimmers the best methods of rescuing and re suscitatingi a drowning person.. , - An instructor will be sent to any place where there are five or six swimmers sufficiently proficient to profit by a course of 'tstruction in life-savinlg methods to give the neces sary tuition free of cost beyond the small alliliation fee of 5s.

GINKSUNN'S CHALLENGE By "Lefthander." The following amusing article, flrom the "Williamstown Advertiser," will doubtless be read with interest by all local bowlers, as being a hlumorous commenontary upon the vagaries of bowl ers and bowling: To the casual visitor Christmas pro mised to be celebrated very quietly in tihe old-fashioned town of Goenslo. Thlat once popular town was noted for its sporting fraternity, and it boasted of a prenmiership football club. which, by the way, was supported by the townspeople very liberally. The cricket club was playving up well for a position near tile top of the list but owing to one of the officials asking an umpire to have a drink the club was deprived of three matches iwhichl it had won. T-he bowling clb possessed some of the top-notchers in that ex citing pastime. One chap in particular was noted for his skill with the bowls, aid on every opportunlity, favourable or otherwise, lhe buttonholed the coun try folk that lie might make theml aware ...

Foolhardy Man Hurled 30 Feet. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
loolliardy Mani Hurled 30 Feet. Luna Park has furnished vet ano ther silly sensation. While a motor cyclist was careering at 80 miles an hour in thl "motor-dronio" he sudden ly lost control of his macline and was hurled 30 feet in.the air on Tuesday evening, and narrowly escaped death. ThIli otor cycle was wrecked. It is high time that Parliament introduced legislation prohibiting all such fool hardy "turns" at these shows. It is an axiom with all who set any value upon human life that the foolhardy need protection against themselves. The public seem always ready to pay admission to see someone risk his life older to accomplish these useless ts of folly, and it is time that the ' l educated the public up to de ('lil" to witness any "turn" that in "ollhv Sger to life.

CARE OF THE HAIR AT THE SEASIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
CARE OF THE HAIR AT THE SEASIDE. Constant exposure to the strong salt air, which is unavoidable when sitting on the beach, has a drying effect onl the scalp. This is especially noticeable on the more exposed parts round the fringe of the forehead, normally dry shins suffering proportionately more in tis respect than those whose oil elandls are i ~ictect working order. Arireeklfi shampoo-should- be --'h ie - variable rule, a saponaceous mixture composed of half a cake of pure castile soap, shredded down finely into a basin of hot water, being excellent for the purpose, while a teaspoonful of am monia and a tablespoonful of powdered borax must be added when a lather has been formed. Frequent rinsing is the great secret of successful shampoo ing after bathing, and as many as five or six tepid waters should be employed, a little borax being added to the last rinse.
GIRLS AND DIMPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
GIRLS AND DIMPLES. That the average girl is proud of a dimple is obvious from the studied use she makes of it. Who has not ob served (with quiet humour) how the girl vwho has s dimple is for ever mov ing her lips, or making someo other fa cial movement which brings the little dimple into operation? It is to be sup posed that girls who have no dimples andl cannot, with all their trying, make them; are envious. But these may entertain hope. One of the latest thinlgs the beauty specialist of Mlayfair undertakes to do is to manufacture a dimple. The fas cinating addition costs anything from ten guineas upwairds for the "perman ent" feature, for it appesiars the tran sitory dimple can be supplied for a guinea or so, but this will not stay in evidence for more than a week! The other one is a somewhat more serious ma tter, for it means removing a small portion of the flesh, which has to be done by a dimple-maker, who is a sur geon to boobt.
