POPULAR ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 17 April 1914

POPULAR EREOEB. It is a popular sanitary error, osyv i contemporary, to think that the nore a man eats the fatter and itronger he "will become. To beiieve that the more hours shildren study the faster they learn. To conclude that, if exercise is good, '.he more violent the more good is lone. ' To imagine that every hour taken !rom sleep is an hour gained. To act on the presumption that the imallest room in the house is large iiiough to- sleep in. To imagine that whatever remedy .auses one to feel immediately better s j:ciod for the system, without re ;ard to the ulterior effects. To eat without an appetite, or to' ?ontinue after it has been satisfied, ?lerely to gratify the taste. To eat a hearty supper at the ex 'cnse of a whole night of disturbed Ipi'P and weary waking in the morn

FEDERAL ISSUES. A SUCCESSFUL CONFERENCE Federal minsisters must be con gratulated on the outcome ot the Premiers' Conference." It is on their administrative doings rather than on any measures they can hope to pass that they must rely. And ;by the display ot tact, mastery ot detail and a conciliatory spirit, they have got out ot the Premiers' cconference the best it is possible tor that body to give. It must be admitted further that the tone ot the conference was, on the whole, admirable.

Referring to the determination of the Government to close . the Maffra sugar factory, Mr. Living ston said that if the public looked at the matter in the proper light they would see that the govern ment had taken the proper course.

The Government- then came for ward, and put £60,000 into the in dustry, in order to revive it, but still the landowners did not grow the beet.
