PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 May 1875
PLEURO-PNEUMO^IA. Pleuko-Pneumonia again? Yes. It is a question occupying many minds. While it prevails we are bound to discusB it, in the hope of finding a remedy. We have shown again and again that inoculation cannot be looked upon as scientifically satisfactory, since it lias not produced a similar disease, that is to say, a disease capable of repro ducing its own kind in cattle. It cannot be questioned that the weight of public opinion in this colony is in favour of inoculation. Squatters do believe that there is what they terra a curative effect attending the fever imparted by the injec tion of virus in the tail, that the disease ceases at once usually, and that the losses are less than they would be if the cattle were left alone; aud moreover, that the currency of this opinion affects price, and induces men to give from 5s. to 10s. a-head more for cattle that have been inoculated. Still, that single and only proof of the efficacy of inoculation just alluded to is wanting. Ther...

A Liberal Construction. — An old gentleman who had risen from the ranks (relates a contem porary) and, after making his fortune aB a charter master or ' butty-collior,' had retired, fell ill, and summoned a doctor. The doctor was a great imitator of Abernethy, and cultivated an aspect of uncouth honesty. ' I shall give no medicine, he said. ' You're blowing yourself out with beer. Give it up. Drink port. Walk or ride; don't hang about the house in this idle way. No more beer. Drink port. I'll call again in a month.' And away went the doctor. At the appointed time he returned. The patient was better, and was grateful, but grumbled at the expense to -which his cure had put him. ' I cawn't stand it, lookthee; it's downright rewinination — nothing less. Yo'n find me i' the workus if things gone on i' this way,' The doctor, cried ' Nonsense J A wealthy man like you ! How much do you drink ?
