WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY AMUSEMENT OF THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914

WINTER SPORTS IN NORWAY | AMUSEMENT OP THE PEOPLE. I [ Winter sports In Norway (writes a correspondent In "The Times") are the 1 amusement of the people. They might really be called democratic if the word were not habitually used to denote something disagreeable and unpopular. For there is'hardly a man or woman in Norway under middle age, except t^e inlirm, who does not spend most of his or her spare time struggling with the laws of gravity in the winter months. And there are Ave of these winter months at the very least, even at sea level; higher up they have never been counted, but enthusiasts take "a busman's holiday" by holding an an nual ski-jumping competition on Mid summer's Day somewhere in the moun ♦ tains near Finse. The strange thins Is that the cult for winter sports Is not much older in Nor way than elsewhere. Boys have pre-1 sumably always tried to slide down I slopes somehow, and the more leisur-! ed used to do a little skating; but, 40 years ago, it was not considered...

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies Is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, awl no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward toff serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or .diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a hen loses her appetite, is 'often remedied by. a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correctvdose being half a teaspoonful iper bird; dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply,, in order that, the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs.

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 27 March 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR' FOOD. According to Jfacdonaid, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, tlie turtle is (he strangest of all-living tilings and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or. .food or light. He is neither iisli nor flesh nor fowl, aiid yet he lias the characteristics of all three. As .for his eating, it seems quite superflouous, for he can remain I shut up lira barrel for a;number of wcelcs and emerge at the end of the. time apparently none, tho worse for the lack of food and light arid airV : ■Tho baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are'.'!'As soon as It comes forth from its egg it souttles oft to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide id. hi its brain seems Implanted the idea that tm'til its- armor becomes .hard it lias no defenceagainst hungry flsh," and so It seeks shelter in, gulf weed amUfeeds. unmolested until its armor gets h...
