FEDERAL ISSUES. REPORT ON IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES. REPORT ON IMMIGRATION. The Royal Oommission appointed to irquiro into the Industrial resources, trade, and legislation, of certain portions of the British Dominions, has issued its second interim report, That report deals in some detail with immi. gration to Australia, and it is in. teresting because it is neither an Auo tralian nor a Party document, If great national problems are to be solved, heo issues involved mush be considered from every standpoint; to ignore the interests of either capitalist or worker is to build on the sand, The Commissionoere nsist at the very outset on the imperative necessity of establishing central control, That is an implied censure on the Fisher Ministry, which, weakly yielding to the phalanx of extremists who dominate the leagues, left the States to battle against each other for immigrants, much as rival storekeepers compete with each other for customers, The agents who did the actual canvassing were paid as subordinate insurance agen...

THE SKUNK [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

TIHE SKUNK One natural result of the recen' boom in' furs (says "The Westmina:tei Gazette") is an attempt to breed fur bearing animals in England. In thl connection a large consignment of North American skunks has lately ar rived, some of which will shortly be established by -Mr Mervyn Chute in a large hillside enclosure on his estate in Northumberland, Despite a malodor ous reputation, the skunk seems a dainty feeder, subsisting chiefly on in sects, and it is considered doubtful whether suflicient food of the correct kind can he procured. Moreover, the value of the fur produced may be af fected by our nilder c'lilnato. . ' from the fur, the terrible fetid fluid for which this animal is notorious is valu ablle itedicinally, being prescr!bed f atithml; though an asthmatlic clorgy Mall, who took a bottle of it into th pulpit to inhale when his bienth "..' troublesome, found that hIe had rellov ed his malahddy, but dispersei ihe con g'regatio-n.

HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

HEALTH OF TIlE CHILD l LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs, J. A. IIobson in "Daily News and Loader,") There are many important things to be 'done in England before she can vindicate her claim to be a pattern of civilisation. About three of these things public opinion has boon arouned, and we are promised small holdings, beottor housing, and higher wages, But if we are to reap the full benefit of these reforms there is a fourth no less important question which is Just beginning to attract attention. Whlat is the character of the holnes in which the majority of the nation's children are being dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The dllticul ties, although largely economnio, are not entirely so. The medical olliccr of Islington says in a recent report: "There are far too maniy men who earn good wages living; in homes that are most unsatisfactory in every way," and declares the ignorance of the lvorking man's wife to be "something appalling"; thait ...

POLITICAL ORGANISATION, ONE of the moat extraordinary featureo of the politioal organiestion of Aus. tralia sineo the inception of Federation has been tho rise and progress of the Women's National Leaguo, Prior to the introduction of the first Common. wealth Electoral Bill the women of Australia had no vote, The greator number of them did not dtsire to be burdened with political dutioe, but tho Parliament thought that these should be impooed upon them, The small minority of women who desired to be privileged to vote had their way, For good or evil the system of adult suffrage was introduced, It must he confi es d that many careful thinkers among both men and women viewed this change with somo apprehooeion It was antioipatfd thab many women would remain indifferent in the matter, and that only a small portion of them would vote, The natural .corollary would havn been that thoan who went to the polls would have been tho ex tremists on both sides, It was also thoughb that even of those...

TO GET RID OF A COLD. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

TO GET RID OF A COLD, One of the most certain methods of throwing off a chill, especially in the case of children, with whom it is mort practicable than with adults, is to atay in bed for a few days. This meanu that the patient keeps in one ten: perature, free from exposure t( draughts, and that the pores of th skin may be opened and kept freel; active without danger; and these con ditions promote recovery from cold, ] is well to administer a gentle saline aperient, such as sulphate of soda, fol lowed by a diaphoretic such as sweet nitre, both of which cleanso the sys tern and drive out the cold. Poultices on the .hest are seldom advisable they may give temporary relief, bu they are apt to weaken the'lungs an, bronchial tubes. Turpentine strips, o. dry heat in the shape of hot flannel or baked cotton wool' may often b. used with advantage, Cough mixtures are far less effoetiv,: than confinement in a room of on temperature, which should be kept ia about 66 deg.

THE SECRET OF WARM FEET. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

THE SECRET OF WARMhl FEET. The golden rule in cold weather i to keep the extremities warm, and the first and most important rule for ca: rying it out is never to be tighti, shod, Boots or shoes that fit tightl; prevent the free circulation of thill blood by pressure, but when, on the contrary, they do not embrace the foo too firmly, the space left between thi shoo and the stocking has a good sup ply of warm air. The second rule ia never to sit in damp shoes. It is often supposed that unless shoes are posi tively wet it is unnecessary to changn them while the feet are at rest. This is one of the greatest fallacies, for when the least dampness is absorbed into the sole in its evaporation, it ab. aorbs the heat from the foot, and thus perspiration is dangerously cheohed. This can be easily proved by trying the experiment of neglecting the rule The feet will be found cold and damp after a few minutes, although, on tak. ing off the shoo and examining it, it will appear to be quite dry,

HEALTH HINTS. TO AVOID COLDS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 14 March 1914

, ;ALTH IItNT8. TO AVOID COLDS, 0oughs and colds are due to inflam. nation of tlhe mucous me-mbrane of ihe nasal and throat passages, yet hough, this inflanmation, and the )onsequent catarrh, are the most ob vious features of the disorders, yet there is at the same time some dis rurbanco of the general health as well, and, indeed, certain forms of colds are doubtless due to the presence and ac tivity of some specific germs, There are two or three principles to be ob served in order to keep free from ca tarrhal troubles. In the first, place, ths standard of the general health must bhe maintained by means of good, nourishing, food in a sullicient quanu tity, and the use of laxatives and ton lcs at times when the state of health seems to demand them, Secondly, the clothing must be satisfactory, and must not be varied as to thickness too recklessly. It should ho of woollen rmaterial, this being the best non-con 'hictor of heat, and it should be sufli cient~ly warm, without being too hea...
