WHEN YOU FEEL A COLD COMING ON. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914

WHEN YOU FEEL A COLD DOMING ON. A simple but very eifcoUvo remedy for "raw" throat and cliest, experi enced especially by singers and speak ers, is to drink not milk, tlien lor a minute or two bathe the cliest with milK as hot as can be borne. This .serves both as a stimulant and nutri tive. For inflamed "raw throait," unac companied by coughing, bind around the tnroatj a thin strip or well-peppered salt pork. After twelve liour.s tne porn is removed and for a few hours longer a plain, fresh flannel L>. ad is substituted. .Keep out of dra gilts. Instead of water for a cola pack, soma use alcohol, full s.rengiii; not only is it more effective, but, oesides, one is not so liablo to take ujid the next morning al ter removing Uio pack. A Honolulu lomedy for so;-.' llu'oac is r'resii pineapple, as much as one can digest. 'ilie effect is marvellous.'

WORTH A SECOND THOUGHT. Others' follies ieacli us not, Nor much their wisdom teaches, And most of sterling worth is what Uur own experience preaches. —Tennyson.

KILLING HORNS ON CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 30 July 1914

KILLING HORNS ON CALVES. No logical excuse can be given for keeping cattle with horns. Rather than get rid of the cattle it is wise to get rid of the horns, and there is no bertter time to do this than wlien the r-»1f is a few days old. It causes no disfigurement, and the operation is practically painless. I always keep on hand a stick of caustic potash for this purpose, and when the calf is a few days old, about the third day, just when the button like embryo horns can be felt under the ekinj make a light application of the potash direotly over the horns. Only one application is necessary. It is necessary to be very careful in handling the potash, for if it touches i any part of the skin it will make an ugly sore. Was or oiled paper should be used for handling it, and when not in use it should be kept in a tightly stoppered bottle. Before it is ap plied to the miniature horns it should be moistened slightly. Cut the hair where the application is to bo made, and rub it over the spot...
