WHEN MICROBES ARE BUSY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914

WHEN MICROBES ARE BUSY. A celebrated scientist has made the interesting announcement that there are more microbes in the air at nine o'clock in the morning and at nine, o'clock at night than during any other periods of the day. He has also disco vered that the percentage of microbes in the atmosphere is less at three o'clock in the morning and three o'clock in the afternoon than at any other itinos. The explanation advanced for the partiality of the microbe for nine o'clock a'm and p.m. is that the "microbo hour" is controlled ' by the movements of pcoplo. From live 10 l.ino in the morning they are going from their homes to their working places, and from five to nine in the evening they are again Journey-in; through the streets, either homeward bound or In search of pleasure.

Melbourne Letter [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914

Melbourne Letter The State elections are over, and, as In the case of the curse upon the Jackdaw of Rheims, no one seems a penny the worse. If Labor is satisfied because It has beaten Mr. Duffus, only so recently appointed Chairman of Committee, it has little satisfaction in the fact that Mr. D. Smith, who carefully told the P.L.C. to mmd its own business, and who revolted from Labor, has held his seat against the nominee of the Mel bourne bosses. As for Dr. Argyle's defeat that can only give satisfac tion to Mr. Cameron's friends, and Mr. Cameron himself. The victory of the one and the defeat of the other cuts on political ice as our Yankee friends would say. In the final result the Liberals go back to office with a practically unimpaired majority, and for three years at least Victoria may be regarded, as safe from the financial tragedies in which Labor has involved New South Wales J and West Australia. One result of1 the elections seems to be that the question of scripture teachin...

DON'TS FOR SOLDIERS. HINTS FOR AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914

DON'TS FOR SOLDIERS. HINTS FOR AUSTRALIANS. On active service the British sol dier finds himself surrounded by many pitfallB. The Australian troops who are going to the front will realise this. Discipline in the Army is neces sarily strict in time of peace, but when the war bugles begin to blare it becomes ten times more strict, and what appear to the ordinary man as perfectly innocent actions become very grave offences against military law. For instance, one would think that a soldier suffering from the "blues" or afflicted with the "hump" •would be at liberty to disseminate his gloom among his mates; but that is not so. Should he do so lie is liable to prompt court-martial and long im prisonment for creating unnecessary despondency in the ranks. "Keep smiling" must ever be the watchword of the soldier on active service. It seems a noble thing, indeed," for a soldier to rush from the ranks under fire and pick up a wounded comrade who has fallen by the way, and in such cases the ave...
