Your Skin Changes Every Month. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 12 December 1907
Your Skin Chances Every Month. It takes but four weeks to completely re- new the human epidermis. You have new eyelashes every five months; you shed your finger-nails in about the same period ; and the nails of your toes are entirely renewed annually. The white of the eye, known ns the cornea, is in a continual state of renewal, being kept clear and clean by the soft friction of the . eyelids. These ore a few manifestations of the re- storative powers retained by man, who is less fortunate than tha'lowcr animals. Crabs can grow fresh limbs, the snail can renew even a large portion of its head; with eyes and feelers, lizards do not worry abouti tho loss of a tail, and if you make a out in the caudal appendage of some of these last-, mentioned creatures they will grow another tail straight a\\'aj, and rejoice in the posses q'ton af two 1' But man still possesses the wonderful re- storative little cells which scientific men call leuococytes. They are always coursing through the body to...

CONCERNING TANTALUM. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 12 December 1907
- COXCEIIXIXG TAXTALU3I. " Tantalum is a remarkable instance of a metal being known for over a century before its valuable properties were noticed. Its existence ¡was first indicated in 1802, in a mineral con- taining .also iron and\ manganese, where it plays the part of an acid, and in the course of a dozen years the element had been isolated, j But it remained ¿ mere curiosity, partly by the difficulty in reducing it, part- ly by reason of its supposed rarity. The late Henry Moisson, with his electric furnace, was the first to pre- pare any considerante quantity of t, lin 1V02. He had a hard, brittle j moss, fusible ' with difficulty, which seemed to "have no useful proper- ties. Thc peculiarities of tantalum were in fact; masked) py thc .traces ! of oarbon which remaineu combined. ! with it. Thc attempt to find a bet I ter substance than carbon foi- the filaments of, incandescent light ?has changed ali this. Carbon volatilises | at a high temperature, and its con- ductivity incre...

It. was also, perhaps, the richest eake, for in addition to hundreds of pounds of currants, raisins, and the other usual ingredients, in its vari- ous parts were 25 gold watches stud- ded with gems, 50 gold rings set with precious stones, half a dozen bracelets, similarly adorned, and a number af other valuable articles. After the youngest girl present had cut for herself the first slice, the guests were at. liberty to help them- selves. One young lady must have done so repeatedly, for, on her eva confess on, her slices yielded her one watch, a bangle, three ...

THE REASON WHY DR. SHEL- DON'S DIGESTIVE TABULES CURE INDIGESTION, DYSPEP SL\, AND ALL STOMACH TROU- BLES, ls that they actually contain all oí the natural digestants as found ic a healthy stomach. Unlike many so-called indigestion 1 cures, these tabules are neiiher laxative or these tabules are neither laxative or cathartic, and do not act upon the bowels in any way for in indigestion dr dyspepsia the wholo trouble is the stomach and not the bowels. No one ever suffered from indigestion or dy- spepsia whose stomach was in a healthy condition. When the stomach is out of order, do not go . without food,; or irritate~your stomach with., cathartics, but takB somo natural div gestaut which will digest " what you eat, thus assisting ibu stomach to re "gain its normal health and vigor. Dr. ¡sheldon's Digestive Tabunlcs is the only preparation which contains nil the known digestants, and which will digest all kinds of food.
