Random Readings. GOETHE'S MISTRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
Random Readings, j GOETHE'S MISTRESSES. Many Englishmen and' English- women are acquainted with the name of Goethe, the great German poet, as the nuthor ol "Faust." Goethe was twenty, young, hand- some, and aristocratic. Women turned to gaze at him, and girls blushed when his ardent look was directed at them. His whole per- son clearly expressed that Nuture had intended him for love, to love and be loved in return, and he obey- ed the dictates of Nature very scrup- ulously. It was in Strassburg where his first love affair occurred with two sisters. They were the daugh- ters of his dancing master, two channing girls of 19 and 17 respec- tively, and evidently destined by Na- ture for the interesting game of love. But "the course of true love" and so on -. Whilst Lucinda, the elder of the sisters, concealed a vio- lent passion for the poet, he fell in love with Emilia, the younger. But, alas, his love was not returned, for young Emilia had already given her iittle heart to another. Gre...

TWO GOOD PARTY GAMES. Tho Buccesa or failure of a party for young pooplo dopends largely on tho amusements suggested. There aro times when the introduction of some novel game or diversion serves to "hreak thu ico" and put everyone at ease. Hero aro two simple forms of entertainment, now to many per- sons. Tho fiiBfc requires no special preparation. An empty bottlo is placed upon a small table, tho cork being set loose- ly in tho top of it"in such n way that the least touch will dislodge it.

Tho trick appears so simplo that tho surprise of tho performers whun they miss the cork and snap at tho air, as they ure almost suro to do on tho first trials, novor fails to excite mer- r...

The bost way of treating it, pro- vided it bo recognised in its earlitst, stage, is to apply acetic or carbolic acid in solution, or strong mercurial ointment. Before doing this, how- ever, tho part, of the scalp affect t d should be washed with carbolic snap to free it entirely from grease.

THE CAUSE AND CURE OE HICCOUGH. Hiccough usually attacks persons of nervous temperament, anti yinilia children who have overloaded (lie stomach ; it may also bc induced by ealing foods which have been ton highly seasoned. A variety of means have been suggested to stop hic- cough, among the most efficacious being thc following: - It is recommended to distract the attention of thu porsona who are seized with tho paroxysm ; they are advised to count, tho Hies on thu ceil- ing, etc. ; sometimes an attempt is made to frighten thom, and if this is successful tho hiccough is stopped. Another of tho means adopted is lo hold tho breath, either hy couulini; up to thirty or by repeating loudly and with volubility tho samo son teneo ; or, what, is much hotter, m drinking a glass of cold water in lit- tle sips, at tho saine timo pinchin!; thc nostrils.

" FOR BURNS. It is BO oasy for tho housewife with hor novor-ending dutios to scald or horn hor lingera by handling hot kettles or attonding to thc oven.

An Explanation [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
An Explanation Just prior to the breaking up of the Municipal Council meeting nu Monday, in connection with til e board of,health business, the liveli- est five m'imites of the meeting . oc- curred. Councillor Hingston stated thal in last week's "Advertiser" it was stated that the municipal Inspcc tor had sent a copy of a pi evious issue of that paper to the central Board of Health drawing attention to an article on sanitary matters upon which the Secretory had com- mented favourably. The Board and this Council,-in fact the Board and several councils were not in re- lations of harmony. It was not a proper thing for an official to draw the attention of the Central Board to any criticism of health matters on Deloraine. Although not stated in so many words, it was evident that Cr. Uingston was under the impression that Mr Cameron sup- plied the article in question to the "Advertiser" Several interjections were made by various Councillors one of whom expressed the opinion that the "Adve...

ALCOHOL AND DIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
ALCOHOL AND DIGESTION. Sir William Roberts, with a view to ascertain the effect of different alcoholic drinks on digestion, made an exhaustive scries of experiments. With regard to ar- dent spirits, such as whisky, brandy, and gin, he found that moderate doses, well diluted, promoted rather than retarded di- gestion. A tablesponful of brandy to a basin of arrowroot promotes its digestion. It is surprising to ob- serve, says Dr. Hillier, commenting upon tbis in bis book, "Popular Drugs," how slight, the effect of al cobol is on thc chomical acts of d¡. gestion. Under 10 por cont, of proof spirit thorn was no appreciable retardation. With 10 por cont, re- tardation waa only barely traceable. With 20 por cont, thero was quite a distinct retardation. Over this amount, however, tho inhibitory cf foct was markedly incroasod.
