KILLING HORNS ON CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 24 July 1914
KILLING HORNS ON CALVES. No logical excuse cau bo giveu for keeping cattle with honi6._ ltather than get rid of the cattle it ia wise to get rid of the horus, and there is no better time to do this than wlieu the calf i3 a few days old. It causes uo disfigurement, and the operation is practically painless. I always keep on baud i\ stick of caustic potash for this purpose, aud when the calf is a few days old, about the third day, just when tho button like embryo horus cau be ielt under tli© skin, rnako a light application of tho potash directly over tho horns. Only one application is necessary. Is is necessary to bo very careful in handling the potash, for if it touches any part of the skin it will rnako an ugly sore. Wax or oiled paper should ba used for handling it, and wheu not in use it should bo kept in a tjghtly stoppered bottle. Before it is ap plied to the miniature horns it should be moistened slightly. Cut the hair where tho application is to be made, aud rub it over tho sp...

Sensational Motor Bicycle Accidents. Two motor bike accidents of :i rather serious ;nul sensational char acter occurred at Coliuna last Sat urday. The first happened during: the afternoon, whilst all the dis trict was concentrated in Roval Park watching football. A young man named Cliff Keath, of Hor.tou called about that time at Peverill's Motor Works to Ret his broken bike repaired, and Mr. Peverill, in a generous desire to accommodate his customer, lent him his own' "peerless" motor bike to return home with. This "peerless" is a very powerful!, high-geared mach ine with a history, which includes the winning of numerous Austral ian records and the smashing of human bones and faces. On a good even road it can do its seventy-six miles an hour, and not infrequently covers the local ground, at 60. The only men who seem to properly understand this "peerless" is Mr. Peverill himself, and his hopeful understudy, Mr. John Harris. Before lending the machine the owner lowered the gear as mu...
