DO YOU WANT TO LIVE MORE THAN 100 YEARS? The decrease in the death-rate dur ing the last century has been remark able, but, as every well-informed phy sician will tell you, it has been brought about chiefly by lessenging the num iber of deaths among infants and per sons under thirty-five years of age. A/fter the latter age the danger of death is greater than ever, in spite of all that medicine and surgery can do. The famous British physician. Sir James. Sa^vyer, (believes it is by no means a. dllicult matter for any hu man being to live to bo 100 years old. He has recently declared: that any body can attain this age, unless killed by accident, if he or she will religious ly observe the following eighteen "commandments of health": 1. Eight hours' sleep every night. 2. Sleep on your right side. 3. Keep your bedroom window open. 4. Have a mat at your bedroom door. 5. Keep your bed away from the .wall. , 6.

Reveals Complexion Secret of the Spanish. LADY TELLS HOW. THEY KEEP THEIR - YOUTHFUL j COMPLEXIONS, EVEN AT I SIXTY. I " As a young girl," writes one of our renders, " I always had a nice 1 clear and delicately-tinted complexion, but on reaching the ago of thirty it changed completely. The chilly winter winds and rain made my skin rough and dry-my face used to burn and smart horribly after the slightest, exposure to frost or cold. I felt very i worried to see the dreadful change that was taking place. About this time I went for a trip abroad, and while travelling in the south of Spain, became intimato with an elderly Spanish lady. Knowing how proud ' the Spanish girls are of their lovely skin, and hoping she could help me, I told her of my trouble. She advised me to obtain two ounces of rose water, one dram tincture of benzoin, and two ounces of ordinary flowers of oxzoin from the chemist, which, she said, I could mix myself, and after shaking well, apply it with a soft cloth or spo...

The Chief President (Mr M. M. Phillips), in reviewing tho work of the past year, said the friendly societies irero now confronted with serer.il important problems. The Federal Government proposed to introduce a system of social . insurance. The association would not stand in the way of an agency that would do better t.han tlio friendly societies were doing, but the Government should remember that Australian conditions differed widely from those of England. Heio there were few people existing on the edge of destitution, and the friendly societies to n great extent did the work of social insurance. It was said that the great defect of the English act was that it did not utilise the machinery of friendly societies. He hoped that mistake would not be made in Australia. M...

The deposition of the mad kihd, Otto of Bavaria, wliich has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all muslc lcvers the genius of the greatest mo dern composer.. Richard Wagner. For It was King Lmiwlg, the brother of the poor madman, who befriended Wagner in the'days of his greatest poverty, and' ?whose patronage enabled him to produce his Immortal works.

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE OF MONKEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 March 1914

THE PSEUDO-LANGUAGE MONKEYS. Concerning the supposed language o£ anthropoid apes, Professor Boutan has recently taken up the question and arrives at a negative result. It will be remembered that Dr. Garnier came to the conclusion that monkeys have a language analogous to human language and express themselves by signs as well as 'by sounds which they emit. According to Professor Boutan, there is only a difference of degree be tween this and human speech and not one of-kind. He observed the sounds made by a biggon which he had cap tured when young, and his experi ments cover more than five years. He finds that the animal can produce only spontaneous and instinctive .sounds corresponding to a state of satisfac tion or the like, or again to a state of uneasiness or fear, also great ex citment, and the sounds do not appear to correspond to a real language, but rather to what he calls "pseudo-Ian guage." While sounds of real lan guage are acquired toy education, those of« pseudo-language ...
