CARE OF HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

CARE OF HEALTH. While tliero aro sometimes excep tional conditionx under which it niay be for the gonoral Rood that an indi vidual, horo and there, may sacrifice health, happiness, and ovon life it >olf, it remains true that tho moral iaw of bcnevolencc prescribes quit® ? different course for most of us. What ever weakens our vitality and vigour makes us less useful in our work, and in all our relations of lifo. If ex treme indulgence in any natural ap potite does this on one hand, so do«! its unnatural nnd oxces«ivo restraint an the other. If we consider tho ap petite of hunger, for instance, we shall see the effect of gluttony on one hand, !ind of starvation on tho other. No lioulit it is often much more difficult to preserve a due moderation than to HO to either extreme. It requires deli cate discrimination to discover just what the body needs for its most per fect development, and a firmness of purpose to supply those needs in tho right proportions. Yet this is one o' the mos...

HOW IT FEELS TO FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

HOW IT FEELS TO FLY. l)r. Von. Schrotter. u doctor practising in Vienna, describes the curious sensations encountered by aviators when in the uir. He says that apart from the strain on the nervous and physical organs, the sudden change of the pressure of the atmosphere, and consequently of its oxygen component, afiects the circulation and the respiration much more than the gradual ascent in mountain-climbing does. The powerful drought causes u keen sensation of cold, which is the first symptom complained of, and deafness is very soon experienced. The reduced supply of oxygen caused by the rapid movement and the fall of the atmospheric pressure gives rise to \omiting and visual hallucinations. A dangerous unci frequent symp tom is Ihe desire fur sleep, occur ring some time during ll\ ink» i'1 spite of the aviator's strenuous ef forts to keep awake. A very unpleasant sensation is that of dizziness caused by the -alti tude of the aeroplane, the result be ing that objects on (lie ground...
