The Influenza. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 20 June 1891

The Influenza. The influenza is raging again this year with unprecedented deadlines?. Tlie para lising influences of this terrible malady have assumed the alarminar dimensions rf a plague. The distemper is of a powerfully destructive character, and shatfce-s its victims with fearful suddenness. The severity of the visitation eclipses all previous attacks. The medical faculty fails to ac count for the outbreak, ani is powerless t'- octroi its spread. Doctors, ~ Nurses, and. hospitals are diong everything possible for sufferers, but are overwhelmed by tbe multitude ic-ying bitterly for relief. A despatch from one town states that JWO people died in one day, this was about the daily average, and the streets were crowded with vehicles carrying the dead to their last Testing place ; and the sad vacancy of death depressed every house hold. S'-ch trying times as these demand immediate attention. The doctors fail, and the many advertised cough and c Id cures are only sedatives which interfe...

Good Walkers. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891

Good Walkers. We bave known numerous road-bred horses that would walk four and a half to five miles an hoar without urging, and many, in fact, most well-bred road horses, oould be taught to cover greater distances than this in the same time if it were not for the pernicious custom (as we think) cf put ting the colts to the tret as soon as tbey are in the harness and before they are really bridle-wise. Every farmer's boy knows that he can do a better job of work — plowing, har rowing, or workiDg corn with a fsst walking team, which makee the dirt fly, than with a slow one. The Bavin g oh a farm when tbe horses walk three miles an hour, or even when they can walk two miles and a half, is twenty per cent, or, in other words, the fast team oan rest a whole day in a week and do as muoh as the slow team — do it better.
