ANIMALS DON'T NEED EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

ANIMALS DON'T NEED EYES. Animals do uot depend upon their eyesight in the same way as human beings. Oats and dogs could get along very well without eyes. A cat can And her way with the aid o! her whiskers. These are the same width as her body and connected with nerves which cause her to feel the slightest touch. Dogs can be entirely guided by their sense of smell. Blind dogs have been known to scent and find their way to the most inaccessible places. Their hearing i6 also preternatural!** sharp. Rats can see very little, and de pend chiefly upon: thoir noses, mus cles, touch and hearing. In the case of most animals, the senses .n£. smell and touch are more highly developed than that of sight, and they do not require to depend upon their sight uearly as much as do human beings in regard to safety. "The cheapest-looking thing 1 ever saw at a bargain counter," says a cynical old bachelor, "was a husband waiting tor his wife."

Questions and Answers. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Questions and Answers. Q. 1 have been feeling very poorly lately, anil have just been told that I am suffering from uric poisoning. I shall be si ad if you will tell me just what uric poisoning means. Is it a serious matter? A. Uric poisoning is caused by the retention in the blood of substances which should leave the body in solution. The retention of these sub stances is due to a diseased or inac tive condition of the kidneys. When the kidneys we working perfectly, they filter and extract from the blood of the average individual about three pints of urine every dav. In this quantity of urine should be dissolved various waste material produced by the wear and tear of the tissues of the body. This is dead matter and its presence in the blood is poisonous. The three pints of normal urine shouid contain about ten grains in weight of uric acid, an ounce of urea, togeth er with other animal and mineral mat ter varying from a third of an ounce to nearly an ounce. ♦ Q. Then I am to unders...

THE KING OF FODDER CROPS. . Every farmer should strive to make provision for getting in a small lu cerne patch. It will often be found in valuable as a source of green feed picking for the working teams during seasons when other feed is dry. A night in the short lucerne stubble will be greatly relished by such teams after tlwlr days's labor during the ploughing or sowing season. Don't say that it won't grow in your dis trict, or that there is not enough moisture. Try it, and, if about to do 6o in the hot and dry districts, plant now. Autumn i.s, perhaps, the safest and surest season to sow down lu serne in any district, except those that suffer through excessively wet winter®. As the lucerne will last a few years, be sure, if your soil Is overlaying a stiff subsoil, to not only break this soil up, but lime it, not necessarily heavily, up to, say, fi cwt. per acre, on the very stiff country, down to as low as half that quantity on medium soils.
