STOP FEEDING LICE! [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 4 September 1915
STOP FEEDING LICE! In going. through tlie country many cattle are seen that are off in flesh and in poor condition. When you get in close touch with the owners they say, "I don't knoiv what is the matter with my cattle. I feed them good, have a warm stable, and give them good care, but they don't come my way, and I don't know what to do." Now, just put on your glasses and examine the cattle, and see if you don't find lice. If you do, just got busy and apply the following with a currycomb. In a week or 10 days apply again. Just try this: One gallon raw linseed oil, one-half gal lon kerosene, two pounds of flowers of sulphur, and five pounds of lard compound. Stir up the' sulphur in' the, kerosene with the lard and mix, stirring often. With two applica tions, 16 to 1, your cattle will com mence to gain and. will not consume as much .feed. as before using. The amounts given, in the mixture are sufficient for 12. cows.

WERRIBEE. At the last meeting of the Shire Council, Cr. J. McMurray (North Riding) was elected Shire President for the ensuing twelve months. As the new President is an experienced Councillor, the ratepayers can rest assured that the duties of the office will be faithfully carried out. There was a' shuffling of seats at the Council table at its last meeting, owing to a change in members ,and President. It would be a good idea if the three Councillors representing each Riding sat together, so that they could easily consult each other about works in their respective Rid ings. In tlŽ present "jumble" they cainnot do tfiis without talking across the table, or walking round it. The contest for the South Riding seat in the Werribee. Council be tween Cr. Beamish and 'ax-Cr.' Hol land, resulted in the sitting member being returned by 14 votes. De tails -of voting at the three booths in the Riding:-Little River, Beam ish, 44; Holland, 44; Werribee, Beamish, 44; Holland, 61; Metropol itan Far...

For the space of fully thirty seconds Lord -Clanavon stood perfectly still on the edge of the pathway as though turned into a figure of stone. Then a ghastly paleness crept into his cheeks, banishing all his ruddy, manly color, and he swayed backward as though about to fall. The roar of the passing vehicles and the babel of talk and street shouts around seemed to come to him from afar off; and the ground appeared to slide from under his feet Then came a darkness before his eyes. a sudden tightening of the brain, and at. last unconsciousness.

" " $ " * When Lord Clanavon opened his eyes and looked around him, his first impressions were rather mixed. To begin with, be was lying upon a strange sofa in a strange room; and. more wonderful still, its o...
