LAMENESS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

LAMENESS IN HORSES. Lameness, like soundness, is difficult to define. It has been termed an ex pression of pain on the part of the animal from some defect or deformity in oonnection with the limbs and mani fested in the act f progression It is only a symptom, not a disease, and it is this that makes it sometimes so diffi cult to detect the cause and origin. Malformation or disease of .the limbs may be the cause if it is not due to accident, but it -nmy be news to some people to know that some diseases of the trunk of them body, and not in the limbs at all, may cause lameness. For instance, the brain or spine may be the cause of it, and springhalt re sult, or even acute disease of tihe liver will sometimes set up lameness. The trouble is that when it is due to d's ease lameness does not generally disap pear with the disease; and, in fact, disease is the ordinary cause of lame nes0 . It is for this* reasoni that it is so important to know where the seat of the mischief really is befor...

HOW TO MAKE A MEASURE OF LIQUIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

HOW TO MAKE A MEASURE OF LIQUIDS. A very simple method for making a container for liquors which measures off, say, a quart at each time the lih quid is pourrd, is to take a largo cy lindrical can, and put in a false bottom which holds about a quart between this and the bottom of the vessel. A: one side of the false bottom is an opening which connects with the main body of the can, and on the other a tube leading to the mouth of the vessel, so that the mouth connects in reality only with the before-mentioned space. This space being-filled with the liquid, we tilt the can down so as to keep the level in the main chamber below the orifice, and prevent further entry to bottom chamber, so that tli bottom chamber now. holds just one quart, and can be emptied at th, mouth of the can.-"Scientific Ameri can."

ADVANCES IN SURGERY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

ADVANCES IN SURGERY. Abt the recent Medic?l Congress, held in London, over 600 papers were sead by eminent doctors in the world, each reporting the prograss made in the dif ferent branches or medioine and surg err and suggesting thoe lines which may be followed with advantage in future research. Some idea of the notable advanco may be formed from the mar rollous reports in the field of surgery. For instance, the human brain has been laid bare to its recesses, and such ope rations which were considered impos sible previously are now usually con ducted. Mlany deformities which were supp1osC? to be incurable in times past are new remedied. Some surgeons hope to graft on limbs obtained from per sons killed accidentally in place of those a:umputild from living people, and promse a tune when no one will be compelled to liva with one arm or-leg. One? surge'ol described a process of bone transplnntation by which a hunchl back can be made whole and sound. A.nother spoke of restoring a man wh...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

E:EL OU N L TTE (From Our- Special Corresponlden) Canon Hughes should b., in demand as the conductor-not of a stadium for prize fights, but of special miis:ous. lHe has gained the right, kind of fame (it would hardly be nice to vall it notor iety) that goes to draw the crowds, and that is what is needed nowadays. Wh?n the rows upon rows of empty pews in metropolitan churches are seen one can understand why church author ities in other colmtri.s are driven by the same lack of congregations, to re sort to all sorts of metiods to attract the people. It would seem that if some churches here are to ha kept open at all, some similar move in tue way of investing the services with elements conducive to' "popularity"' must be re sorted to. It is not a pleasant fact but is none the less true. With this in siew-the devising of means to draw the corwds who, once brought within the sacred precincts to be am used may remain to pray--there are infinite possibilities in the punch of Canon Hughes, w...

THE GRADE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

THE GRADE COW. So:ma of tihe breeders of purebred dairy catilo have strange notions about acknowlcdging the existeiieo of the grade cow. Tlhey seem to be afraid of som?tthing that will rise up to plague the purebred. This notion, in the opinion of '"Ilordl's Dairymalln" has no real foundation. On the. contrary, the American authority just quoted would like to see every euocuragemllnt given to the production. of first class grade cows in all the dairy breeds. To pro duce such cows the farmer Iiimust ibare a purebred sire. lie must 1have, also, a rilght idea of the great imporianos of secuiing a bull of the strongest and best blood lines. We have only to rellect a moment to see that it roaily necds a more Ipre potent bull in the production of grade cows than inl a purebred herd. In the purebred ihed the bl!od of the sire is strougly re!nforced and aided by the agreeing blood of the female which is hairmonious in blood lines with him. But when we piao a a purebred sire at the head of a...
