POISON BOTTLE ALARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 26 June 1914

POISON BOTTLE ALARMS. Numberless lives have been lost or endangered by the careless QUO who picks up a bottle from his medicine chest in the dark. This is being con stantly done, and measures should be taken tq^prevenfc it'. It has been siig* gested that poisonous tablets bo given a peculiar shape, different from tho or dinary tablets. Another suggestion is that tho bott!e> bo provided; with a number of neudlo .-points-' {Okqtxzfiflfi stopper from which a number of needle points project so that tho stopper can not be removed- in tho dark' without pricking tho fingers. Still ahqther sug gestion is to provide the bottle'with bolls that will sound a warning when it is picked up. H.soxno or all of tbeso methods wero adopted, no doubt thoy: would provont many deaths and much suffering, for tho uso of poisons seems to bo daily increasing, and thus also the liability to accidents.

?PATHO. ? Last week a very fine ,spirit was shown by a- number of the resi dents, who turned out for six days to . assist iu erecting the;- new fencc round the Cemetery. Some of these workers,..though not directly interested, in the Cemetery, worked faithfully to! the finish. If all who had previously- promised to assist had fulfilled their promise the work ?would have been much lightened and shortened. Those who did help so willingly have the satis faction and pleasure that belong to ?the truly charitable man. 1 Alto gether a very fine fence was erected, which will secure the Cemetery for a good many years to come. The rabbits were all dug out, and much clearing up of dead trees, scrub, etc., was done. The recent transaction by which the Torrumbarry Post-office, Hotel and, Store was leased to Mr. A.
