THE Y.M.C.A. ON THE SANDS OF THE DESERT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

THE Y.M.C.A. ON THE SANDS OF THE DESERT. At far Abbassia the association es tablished itself at the First Austra lian Dermatological Hospital, where there were over 1500 men. When the Y.M.C.A. man (Secretary Downes) struck the inhospitable spot the so cial conditions of the patients was un happy. They had no library, no re creation room, and no games except cards, while half of them were in tents out on the sand. The hospital was a prison, in which gambling was the only form of recreation. That state of things was quickly altered, and the welcome given to the Y.M.C.A. work was extraordinary in its enthusiasm. The first step was the establishment of a library of 600 gift books (from Lady Tullibardine and the Australian Red Cross), the patients doing the work of number ing and cataloguing. Then followed the erection of a mat hut and the in troduction of quoits, hull-board, draughts, chess, etc., and the nightly entertainments. There was also a lit tle wooden hut lent by the Red Cross,...

THE COMMON EGG. Little Essays by Aunt Sarah. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

THE COMMON EGG. Little Essays by Aunt Sarah. Eggs may be divided into four classes-new laid, high explosive, high er, and extremely elevated. New-laid eggs are nearly as rare as Chinamen's whiskers. The last known discovery was found in Bromp ton, and was immediately purchased by a local millionaire, who presented it to the British Museum. High-explosive eggs are known as anti-aircraft shells. These are not dangerous unless dropped, when those in the immediate neighborhood should at once dig themselves in. The higher varieties are usually seen on our breakfast tables. When excited they take a lot of catching, but are otherwise harmless and fond of children. The extremely-elevated class, known as Jack Johnsons, are dangerous at anything up to a thousand yards. They should be approached or poached with caution, as when enraged they are liable to become troublesome. Eggs are usually egg-shaped. They should be caught young and boiled. This tames them. Hens are said to lay eggs, and hav ...

Money and Waste. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

Money and Waste. When one's expenses are not equal led by one's receipts, poverty must be tie result This law appliea not only to money matters, It is a law of uature. Unless a man's body la con stantly renewed by food, water and air, he weakens and dies. In regard to money, man may allow his receipts to largely exceed his expenses, but in regard to his body it la absolutely ueceesary that for every ounce It r& ceives, by way of nourishment, etc., a corresponding loss of nearly the same amount must follow, or health can not be maintained. Waste matter is removed from the body, chiefly by the aid of the skiD lungs, kidneys and liver. The skiD and lungH usually perform their share of the removal readily, but the kidneys and liver often need assist ance. "When the kidneys and livet are not doing their work well, uric and biliary poisons are retained in the system, and we suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion...

HOW HEAVY FIRING AFFECTS ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 10 November 1916

HOW HEAVY FIRING AFFECTS ANIMAL8. Some curious and Interesting ob servations upon the psychological ef fect produced on animals by the de tonations of big guns have been recently made. The animals consid-1 ered are the horses and dogs used for military purposes, and the game in the area o£ warfare. It was no ticed soon after the beginning of the war that the latter began to migrate into Luxembourg, Switzerland, and the portions of France and Belgium not the seat of hostilities. ' The first to flee was the "black game" (a term which includes the ! wild boar, the badger, and the bear), whose sensas are specially acute. I Then the roebuck and the red deer followed; but, strange to say, the hare, whose timidity is proverbial, ' continued to occupy its usual terri- J tory. The larger birds likewise, such as the- grouse, the pheasant, the sea eagle, and the wild duck were driven away by the heavy firing. Strange to say, the wolf, which was expected to regain lost ground in the present war...

The con flict in Europe has shown, as nothing before hag ever so clearly shown, the im portance of agricultural production, the need of every nation to make itself as self-supporting as possible, and above all, the supreme value of a resourceful aud virile industrial population.

"Every man has a place in the world, and it is within his power and ability to ornament that place, pro vided he is not trying to be somebody else.1' These extracts are from the fore word of a remarkable book, "Letters of a Self-made Failure," by Maurice f.witzer, which has just been publish ed in America.
