HOW TO BREAK UP A COLD. It may be a surprise to many to learn that a severe cold can be com pletely broken up in one or two day's time. To do this, however, prompt action is necessary. The first symptom of a cold is a dry loud cough and a profuse watery discharge from the nose. When Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken every two hours on the first appearance of these symptoms it counteracts the effect of the cold and restores the system to a healthy condition within a day or two.

MAKING THE CAR LAST. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 January 1916

MAKING THE CAR LAST. In the first place,. read up your instruction book and make up your mind that you are going to attend to the oiling and adjusting just as the makers recommend. Remember that it is their whole aim to have you get the best possible results from your car, and they have taken a whole lot of pains to find out the best way to get the best results. Don't run away with the idea that because someone has said this or someone else has said that, you can ignore the maker's instructions and do things some other way, and get away with it. That sort of thing may be all right for a seasoned hand, but for anything short of a real ex pert it is foolishness-just plain; un varnished foolishness. So just re gard your instruction book as an order book-and obey orders. If you buy a car second-hand and have: no instruction book, write to the manufacturer or his nearest agent and you'll get a book. Here's something else. Machinery of any kind, whether it's an auto mobile or a sawmill, i...

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 January 1916

RABBIT DESTRUCTION. The following instructions have been issued to all Inspectors, and we have been asked to publish same for. general information: Climate conditions very often have an important effect upon the work of rabbit destruction. While these conditions often assist us, as they have in the past year, they also often operate in an entirely op posite direction. The droughty con ditions of the last spring and sum mer, which were most suitable for effective poisoning, followed by the copious winter rains, assisted the work immensely. Full advantage of these . conditions was taken by the Department, and landholders gener ally, with the result that, within the last year, a notable diminution in the number of rabbits has taken place throughout the State. The drought, however, was not' directly responsible for the death of many rabbits, if any, though it was a. very useful contributing factor. In drought stricken country, where stock will perish for want of water or food, rabbits, ...
