IODINE AS A DISINFECTANT. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
IODINE AS A DISINFECTANT. It scorns probable that tho em- ployment of iodiuo as a disinfectant will come into moro general use than morely in connection with surgical operations. Lance ("Gazetto des liopitaux") says that it ranks as equal with corrosivo sublimate ns a bactericide, and that it ia moro jo tont than carbolic acid. Ho con- siders that tho small quantity of io- dine which is absorbed into tho sys- tem is, in itself, beneficial, iodine having the property of stimulating leucocytosis, and ho recommends it as an application for punctured wounds and bites by animals and in- sects. Tho simplicity of its appli- cation and the harmlessness of its properties should mako iodine a val- uable antiseptic in many respecta, and innumerable applications for its use will readily suggest themselves.
Health in the Home. APPLES AND HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
Health in thc Home. APPLES AND HEALTH. Fruit is one of Nature's own foods, but to bo of any especial bouolit should bo calen the first thing in the morning. Apples aro tho most bene- ficial, as thoy contain more phosphor- us than any other fruit, this being so valuable in renewing or giving tone to tho nervous system ; wliilo for those of sedentary habits it is particularly useful, tho acids coun- teracting tho barm done by much in- door lifo. Nothing will give_such a cloar complexion, froo from blotches, as will plenty of apples eaton raw tho first thing on rising. 'A well known doctor has said that, wore tho fact moro gonerally known and acted upon, his services would bo sel- dom required. Apples arc ono of tho easiest of substances to digest. So lot good, sound, lipo fruit make at tho loast a part of tho morning meal during tho entire year.
A NIGHT LIFEBUOY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
A NIGHT LIFEBUOY. If, aa often happens, a person should fall overboard when it is dark, the ordinary lifebuoy is not lunch use unless tho vessel happens to be provided witli a searchlight. The item we illustrate is intended specifically as a night buoy, lt con- sists of two hollow metal globes which are so buoyant that when iu : tho water a man's weight will not sink them. The vertical tube con- tains a composition of calcium and phosphorous which ignites on coming into contact with water. In the case of "man overboard" one of these buoys is thrown towards him, and aa the composition instantly lights up, there is a dofinitc guide for him to make for, provided ho can swim, till such time as he is rescued.
A THING DISGRACED. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
A THING DISGRACED. ; The punishment of imprisonment does not do what it professes to do and is supposed to do. It does not reform anyone ; it does not deter anyone from going back to crime;,it docs not help anyone to win again the place that ho has lost as a citi- zen, declares Tighe Hopkins in tho "World's Work." In every way it hinders him. If he does not come out of prison a worse man than he was when ho cntored it, he conies out a weaker and moro holplcss one. His geueral efficiency, I think, is about 7ñ poe cent, less than it was. Ile has existed duing his imprisonment as a Thing-a Thing disgraced and de- spised. It is unwholesome to livo in this way, and it is indescribably emasculating. No man can be im- proved, and tho most obdurate of men is made more obdurate by being compelled to pass a term of years in contempt and degradation. The man who has dono this is at a frightful disadvantage when he is delivered again into freedom, with his way to make once moro in tho world. He...
THE OLD MAID'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
THE OLD MAID'S SONG. Mock not thc old maid tho' thc belïs never rung When my troth vows were said and my marrutfc sontf sung;, They arc not unwedded these hopes and these fears, For the lonely old maid is thc widoA of yurs. " 1 Lips never lisped mc a mother's sweet name. For silent and sad are thc babes that I claim; Three sainted sisters-Thought, Mem- ory, and Tears- j These are her orphans-poor widow of ¡ years* Shu whom a hero has loved will live on Like a proud hero's bride, tao' her hero is gone. His form from her arms thc far death plain may sever, But, alive in his glory, she clasps him for ever. So, tho' thc world in its scorn pass her by, There's a pride of thc past in thc old maiden's eye; And grand she can smile thro1 her1 desolate tears. Time's lonely stepdaughter-tho widow of years. -(Unpublished poem by Sydney Dobell.-From the "Westminster Ga- zette.")

A FORGOTTEN ISLE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
A FORGOTTEN ISLE. With regard to Iviza, the third in importance of thc Halearic Isles, which lie midway between Spain and Africa, its complete history has never been, and never will be, writ ton. From the fragmentary records extant, one gathers that from carli1 est days occupation of thc lovely and fertile island was hotly contest- ed. Chaldeans, Egyptians, Phoe- nicians, Romans, Greeks, Vandals, Saracens, and Moors fought for its possession. Since the Aragenese invasion of the thirteenth century, Iviza has belonged to Spain. Writ- ing in "Chamber's Journal," an ac- count of a visit to Iviza, Mary Stu- art Boyd gives some interesting de- tails of the life of the people. Des- cribing the Sunday morning scene when the country folk come to town to Mass and to market, she says: Some of the women rode mules, sitting perched high on a pile of sheepskins, their multi-coloured pet- ticoats billowing about their neat ankles; others were packed closely into open carts that had cushions placed...

For Young Folks. THE WISHING FAIRY—A BIRTHDAY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
For Young Folks. I THE WISHING FAIRY-A BIRTHDAY STORY. The lovely new blue cashmere frock had just arrived. Ninc-year Dld Maisie gazed at it delightedly. It was a birthday present from Cou- sin Evelyn-just the same age as herself. Of course, it was kind Aunt Margaret who had chosen the frock. "Mother!" cried Maisie, "I do believe Aunt Margaret guessed I wanted a new frock for my birth- day. Don't you?" "I dare say she did, darling." Maisie pondered deeply a few minutes. "We are poor, aren't we, moth- er?" "Poor compared with Aunt Mar- garet and Cousin Evelyn-yes, we arc, Maisie. Why do you ask, dear?" "1 was just wondering what I could give Cousin. Evelyn. But 1 can't think of anything. She has heaps and heaps of everything. Be- sides, I've only got one penny and two half-pennies." "Don't trouble about it, pet. Your Cousin won't expect anything. And she's everything she wants. Now get out your fairy-tale book, while I go and get tea ready." But the fairy-tale book was not interestin...

SLEEP FOR ADULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
SLEEP FOR ADULTS. The ml ult requires a good spell of sloop just as much as the chilli, and to koop tho hody and mind in sound condition tho resting period should never bo loss than seven or oight hours. Thora is no "pick-me up" to equal natural sloop, especial- ly when it is obtained in proper sur- roundings. A well-known doctor laid it down that "no ono, of wlial over ago, ought to sloop in a room that was not vontilalcd as well, if not. bettor, than tho so-called living room." No ono, ke¡ said, shuni.! sleep in an apartment without some direct communication with the outer air.

A TALKING DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
A TALKING DOG. -+ The German public has lately been regaled with tales of the in- creased accomplishments of Don, a talking dog. D'or five years Don, who is the property of Herr Ebers, a gamekeeper of the royal hunting preserves of _ Kolbitz-Letzlinger, near ¿I^n^urg^h^-ljeén,. noted Ar his pbwersfoT" speech? '""He »bcg¡m to learn nt the age of six months, and now has a useful if limited vo- cabulary. When thc puppy Don was standing by his master's side at dinner time one day Herr Eb- ers said, "You want something, do you?" To everyone's amazement Don replied . in a deep hut clear tone, "Haben, haben!" ("Want, want") The gamekeeper at once started to develop the dog's talent. In reply to "What is your name?" he learnt to say "Don," and to "What is the matter?" he an " Kuchen" (cakes) with particular distinctness. When cukes are in view he repeals, "Kuchen, haben, haben!" any number of times, and if his plea is unanswered he adds, "hunger!" with a long drawn em- phasis on the last sy...
A Complete Story. THE REFRACTORY PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
A Complete Story. THE REFRACTORY PRINCE. (By W. E. Norris.) One fine morning thc Crown Prince Michael of Scdatia express- ed a wish to renounce his right of succession to the throne. The part of a Constitutional monarch, he said, was one which could not be accepted hy any self-respecting man. "It is all very fine to boast of this being a free country, but there is one poor wretch in it who isn't even allowed to have opinions of his own, much less to give effect to them. You dress him up in a Field Marshal's uniform, clap a crown on his head, and thrust a sceptre into his hand; hut you take good cari? that he shall command neither the Army nor his Ministers. A wax figure would serve your purpose just as well, and you had belter have one made against emergencies. As for me, I decline to be a living automa- ton." Count Urbnno, who was the hearer of these subversive senti- ments, thought it his duty to report them to the King, who laughed good-humouredly, and said : "Yes, yes; one think...
THE SCIENCE OF WALKING. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 13 May 1911
THE SCIENCE OF WALKING. Dr. John C. Huber says wc have to be very careful not to overtax the strength in thc beginning; in walk- ing, as in everything else, it is im- perative to avoid extremes. A radi- cal change from one's habits is al- ways dangerous. The way to walk is to throw back your shoulders, military fashion-the chest out, the pectorals expanding, and head erect, the lips closed-no mouth-breath- ing. Let the stride be brisk and firm ; the arms swerving half-way not like a windmill. 1'retty much every muscle is thus in play. Have your mind all the time diverted by the ever-changing scenery ; theP2 is no way to equal this by which the cobwebs can be got out of the brain. This simple primeval exercise is pre- ferable to any other, in that it is not in the contestant or athletic class of sports. Tirent a man with as much defer- ence as von would a picture ; look at him in the best light. A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindn...
