A GOOD EXERCISE FOR THE BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 17 January 1914
A GOOD EXERCISE FOR THE BACK. A good exercise for the spinal muscles consists of the following movemonts:—Stand erect, with the feet, together, and rise upon the toes, then gradually sink down by bend- ing the knees until the thigh and calf are doubled upon each other. The trunuk should be erect, all the time, and especial attention paid to the spine, keeping it straight. If a person will remove the clothing and hang by the arms, all tension is removed from the spine, and a second person can determine if the spinal curvature can be removed or &nbsp; not. If, when hanging in this posi- tion, the spine is straight, there is no reason why it cannot be cured, but if it is crooked when hanging, &nbsp; there is little hope of doing more than keeping it from growing worse, and this is very important. In the &nbsp; department of medico-gymnastics in &nbsp; a large gymnasium, this is the way they examine such cases. A teacher says:—"Any movements which do not ...

HEALTH IN THE HOME. HINTS FOR THE SICK ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
HEALTiH IN THE I10OMB, HINTS FOR THE SICK ROOM. As hot milk tends to form a scum over the surface on short notice, it is well to whip it quickly for a mo ment with an egg beater and keep it tightly covered; and simmer for five minutes. In serving food to the invalid see that the napkin is fresh, the spoon bright, and the water clear, and the food dainty. Use your best china, and place a blossom or a leaf on the tray. Never serve food to an invalid lukewarm; never serve it twice in exactly the same manlner. \Vlhen vomiting oc curs peptonised or pancreatinised m-ilk ran be given. Mlilk usually leaves a coating in tile mouth ; a few teaspoonfuls of weak tea taken a;f terwards will Ieave a clean taste in thIe mouthI. Emaciated persons should be rubbed with olive oil; and it ofllen proves aecceptable when the skini is dry from fever. The juice of an orange can often be retained on the stomach when all other things fail; mixed with a little rice it will be grateful to a parched tongtue. R...
BRAYBROOK RATE. INCREASED TO 1/6. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
BAHAYBHOOK N4.'.'.7i. INCREASED TO I/6. When the question of the rate for the ensuing year was brought forward at the Braybrook council meeting on Mon day. Cr Pennell moved that a rate of 1/6 in the . be struck. That would re turn X£4,206 and would mean that after paying the overdraft and ordinary ox penses, the council would havu about £700 for new works. Cr Robinson seconded the motion. The president said that if the coun cil increased its rate it would be on titled to a bigger subsidy from the Government. The Southern riding should support the I/6 rate, as they could not carry that ridine on their back. If the council had spent more money in Sunshine Inat year they would have had less sickness. The River and Railway ridings had their valuations increased almost double, but they did not complain. Cr Opie-There is a vast difference between broad acres and residential areas.

Pounded Cheese. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
Pounded Choose. This is an excellent method to adopt for the utilising of any pieces of rheese which have become too dryl oi unsightly to serve in their origi nul form. Put the pieces, say half a I.ound, into a mortar with a teaspoon. ful of made mustard, an equal quan tily of fine white sugar and a good seasoning of either cayenne, curry powder, or anchovy essence. Pound thtb whole to a smooth paste, moisten with butter, slightly melted, and then press the mixture into small jars; cover with a thin layer of clarified buttert, tie a thick paper over the top, and store in a cool place until re quited. When prepared in this way cheese will remain good for several weeks, and will often prove a great help to the housewife when there comes an unexpected demand for a dainty little dish at short notice. Serve it thinly spread upon pieces of crisp, cold toast, or, better still, up on daintily-prepared croutons which have been fried until richly browned.

FOOTBALL MANAGEMENT. To the Editor of THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
FOOTBALL MANAGEMENT. TLo lhe Editor of Tile ,ADVERTISER. Sir.-My attention has been drawn to a lengthy paragraph which appeared in your last issue relating to the " threatened " re tiremnent of the Footscray Football Club's executive that had previously been read in metropolitan papers. The excuse there set forth that we were disheartened for want of support is all wrong, the real catue being no other than pressure of private duties, which, so far as I anm concerned, makes it all too much for tme to do the club justice. I understand that ir t ;reenwood and iMr Turner are both similarly situated. I take exceptionl, however, to some of the remarks contained in your paragraph wherein the officers are openly attacked for paying "sonme players ntore than would have been paid by any other club in the Association." For being able to control (or maybe-like ourselves-endeavoring to control) the XVil liamnstown Club is cited as an instance of economy on "a third" of Footscray's man agement, b...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 January 1914
It is a sad rellection, but nevertheless true, that during the Ilst two years or :io, dating back to the introduction of the local system of municipal electric lighting, the Iootscray council has done practically nothing of a progressive character. It cannot be said that dur ing that period any work has been undertaken or accomplished that will cause lany councillor or councillors to be remembered in years to come and it is a pity to set years rolling by in that way. Every yea: should see something attempted, something done. Previous to the time referred to several notable works were carried out. New stations were secured with the co operation of councillors and citizens, the electric light system was intro duced ; the stand at the Western re serve was erected ; blind streets were transformed into through thoroughfares but now, with record revenues the city appears to simply worry along, main taining more or less effectively what it po:sesses, but making no substantial I nprovement ...
