THE COMRADE IN WHITE. "ANGELIC HELP." A Story Current in France. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915

THE COMRADE IN WHITE. "ANGELIC HELP." A Story Current in France. By the side of the sick and dead, As the preciois hours quick fled, Laden with tears often shed, Stood the "Comrade in White." By the side of the weary and lamed, By cruel shells often maimed, Shot by fierce hand, all untamed, Stood the "Comrade in White." Clad in robes of purest white, -In the darkest hours of night, He came with the heavenly light, The "Comrade in White." The "Son of God," He did prove, As quietly He did move, While weary hours He did soothe, The "Comrade in White." The poor stricken ones He did find, And, lo! He did help to bind The wounds, 'midst shells that did blind, The "Comrade in White.". And lo! it was seen that blood rained From His side, and halids sore stained, And His gentle face was pained, Our "Comrade in White." Oh! the "Comrade" with piteous eyes' Has descended from glorious skies, To comfort each one, as he dies, The "Comrade in White." He will fold His mantle green O'er graves far o...

COLD WATER HELPS SHOULDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915

COLD- WATER HELPS SHOULDERS. Much valuable time is saved dur ing the busy season by keeping the horses' shoulders in good condition. In' the morning before harnessing the horse see that the shoulders and neck are clean, and look to see that the collar is well cleaned off. Where leather bound collars are used wash them at night when they are removed from the horse's neck. Then during the day see that the mane is not allowed to work or clog under the collar. The remedy for preventing sore shoulders is very simple and good if practiced every evening after the horse has been worked. After re moving the harness, even before feeding, get a bucketful of clear, cold water, and take it to the stable and use a sponge or your hand, and thoroughly wash the shoulder and neck, removing all sweat and loose hair which has accumulated. This' is a good, simple preventive, and a sure one if daily practiced. If any. hair has been rubbed off anywhere on the horse's body, and the place sore, apply salty ...

PRESERVING EGGS ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 2 October 1915

PRESERVING EGGS ON THE FARM. As it is becoming more and more necessary for eggs to be held over from a season of scarcity, cold stor age and home preservation of eggs are attracting more attention. The former prejudice against eggs which are not strictly fresh is gradually dying away as customers learn that eggs held under proper care for a reasonable period of time are as good for general purposes as those which are newly laid. Many methods of home preserva tion of eggs have been tried. Among I the various ways are: Packing eggs in dry table salt, bran, oats or saw dust; preserving them in dry wood ashes, powdered sulphur, powdered gypsum, salt brine, slaked lime and salt solution, sugar, lime water or various solutions of water glass; and covering with vaseline, parraffin, patented preparations, butter or lard. Potassium permanganate, sal icylic acid, gum arabic, formaline, &c., are preserving mediums which have been tried but proved danger ous to use. Of all these methods...
