®lje Jfovte ^bdocate, FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1912. ANNIVERSARY DAY. To-day is the one hundred-, and twenty-fourth birthday of this State, and as such...>■/«• "celebrate it. On 2fitb-January, 1788, Phillip entered and named Sydney Harbour, since when New South. Wales has existed as part arid parcel of the great British Empire. Looking back over, the long stretch of years, it cannot be said that as much has been accomplished as might have been the case, yet the progress made is possibly not so very much out of keeping with the circumstances. It is only in recent years that the facilities of transit have been such as would permit of a constant flow of population, and this has been mostly restricted to the white races, which have not the same need and desire for emigration as have the over-populated countries of the Bast. It. has to be remembered; also, that the histox-y of the world is against .the rapid population of a country in its pioneer days. America was discovered in 1492, but i...

HORSES EATING WHEAT. (To the Editor "The Forbes Advocate"). [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 26 January 1912
HORSES EATING WHEAT. (To the Editor "The Forbes Advocate"). - Sir.^^The line of treatment which has met willi'a -large amount of success, and '"first givenN-to:. tjie public by Mr Wm. Robertson, chief .veterinary officer of the /Victorian Agricultural Department, is as follows: -—A1-, low the horse a large drinlc of water as soon after eating^as possible, and if it is seen that the animal does not drink at least two buckets full, that amount should be given as a drench. The object of this treatment is to wash the grain into the small intestines, where swelling and fermentation may go on without much harm, hence a large volume of water is essential.. When such treatment is adopted, the animal, as a rule, freely purges within a few hours, and wheat grains whole pass in large quantities. This action can be helped by the administration of a quick purgative, a prepared aloes ball,-or from 1 to li pints of raw linseed oil. TTie old theory was that water should be withheld, to prevent the ...
