Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 16 March 1915
C?'llretlt Topics. How NATIONS REcoviR.-The un happy condition of ravaged Belgium. and that of the north of France, may well arouse very melancholy misgivings. Yet let the war once come to an end, and the recovery of both these nations will probably be as astonishing as the completeness of their present ruin. Dr. Chalmers wrote on this subject, and his con clusions were, in the main, endorsed by John Stuart Mill, perhaps the most reliable of the political econo mipsts of the last century. The rap idity with which nations recover, not merely from the ravages of war but also from those of earthquakes, floodsi hurricanes, and the like has often been a matter of surprise. A country may be, to all appearances, utterly desolated. Yet, in very few years, on the removal of the infliction, the tracei of it will have well-nigh dis appeared, and, everything will seem to be going on as before, The recovery is due to the productiveiless of natural resources,,-when utilised by industrious people....

MR. OHAPMAN AND THE WAR Our Federal member was in good. . form when making the olicial opening speeolhon show day. His referenoe to the war was in excellent taste, and his, appeal for help very, effective, when referring to the brave. lads at the front, and the fact that his nephewse were there and his own boys, ready, `anxious, and willing to do their duty with other boys who had left their parents' homes and all they held ,dear to respond to the Empire a call. He was- visibly affected, and there was an emotional break in hie- voice.

Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 19 March 1915
lol Breath The old saying that "distonco lends enchianteint. viasn neer more aptly to the point 'than whbo applied '4 to those people whose * -breath-ie slad1efi Awith ovil-smelling and offensive odours.' Many persons appear most iattractive at a dins tance, but produce- a feeling of pity and disgust 'when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance.- it makes little difference how. beautiful a woman may be,. or how_ charming her manner, if ljer breath is foul; her charm- is ..gone, and she is at a-disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with. other. people. Foul breath in .wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the0company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val hes her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Mlon, wom en, and children who are troubled with th...
