THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 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, and no poultry-keeper can afford to. be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off 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 correct dose 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. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment is vonderfulin improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the intesti...

FIRE AT G-ERA.HG. A disastrous fire occurred at Mr E.

The fire would have been responsible for more damage had not the neighbors lent a helping hand and, after a strenuous fight, their labors were rewarded by saving Mr Lawn's sheds. Mr Lawn will be a heavy loser as the hay was uninsured.

A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 March 1914

A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Some years ago (says a reader) I was employed as "general" in Scot land. We were having exceedingly cold weather, so cola indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, it being much, warmer there. I had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when clang, clang, clang! went any master's and mis tress's 'bedroom bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did not intend to an swer it; 'but in a few seconds, clang, clang, clang! went that hell again. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a shawl round my shoulders, and opened the ikitchen door. My mistress, who was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it under the pillow?" i asked. Then Mr. A. roared: "No; and you'd better come and find it!" Upstairs I went and searched every where, but all in vain, and wasn't Mr. A. cross, .and didn't ...

I Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, j and the captain was continually being I asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was a/board. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tube connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain. iThe parson, on doing bo, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be sure they would not," said the parson, and went away satisfied; but soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at it."
