Which End of a Post Should be Up? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Which End of a Post Should be Up ? It is a very common belief among farmers that a post j>ill Inst longer if set 111 tho ground the reverse of the way it grew in the tree, In other words, with tho butt-end up. Accordingly, ono seen many posts, especially end nnd gato posts, with the small end down. Tho supposi tion is that sap in n trco is al ways osccndlngr, or at least that it is easier for tho sup to i;o up tlmu down. Consequently, it is argued, turning n post upside down tenda to prevent the rise of water, helps to Keep t.hc wood dry, and, there fore, renders it less HaMo to decay. As a matter ot fuel, sap or water ean liow in either direction with equal facility and the popular no tion to tho contrary Is Incorrect.

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 1 May 1914

Sleep Prevents, Not Cures Fatigue. Most of us suppose that wo sleep because wo nrc 'exhausted. Hut. Dr. Claparedc, the Swiss physiologist, has just advanced a new theory, ! which is to the effect that we sleep I in order . to avoid being exhausted. The theory is that sleep, instead of being the result of fatigue, is an impulsive self-disinfection which the body conducts in order to get rid of tho waste products before they have time to produce exhaustiou. Just. as combustion of fuel for the production of heat and energy is always attended by ashes and slag, so the sTow combustion which pro duces. heat and, onergy in the body is likewise attended by waste. "Since the senses never voluntarily come to rest or shut themselves off from the outer world, a point would eventually be reached when the or ganism would perish as a victim of general nerve exhaustion. In or der to hinder this Nature arranges betimes, i.e., before exhaustion can seriously injure the organism, to set in motion that...

The frcshnefis of youth was ever possessed by those who made apples their principal diet. Cer tain it is that there is no food so valuable. Apples nourish the brain and spinal cord. They contain phos phorus, albumen, sugar, gum, chloro phyll, malic acid, gallic acid, vege table fibre and water. They cure gout and rheumatic disorder, and ex ercise a beneficent influence on the | liver and stomach. Ripe apples and ! bread as a diet will do more to re tore health than drugs. -"Family Dector."
