THE FARM AND THE HOUSEHOLD. HATCHING WITHOUT INDICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 30 March 1882

THE FARM AND THE HOUSE-HOLD. HATCHING WITHOUT INDICATION. A singular instance of hatching without incubation has been related to us (" Dunolly Express"). A gentleman of Dunolly informs us that on Tuesday or Wednesday last some eggs were brought into his establishment, and placed in a basket. .On Monday his servant went to get an egg, and her astonishment may be imagined when she discovered that out of one she had placed in the basket there had come forth a chicken, which was undoubtedly wondering what kind of a place it had got into. The hatching is attributed to the intense heat that has prevailed during the past week.

On swimming to a.person in the sea, if. he be struggling, do not seize him then, but keep off for a few seconds, till he gets a mouthful or two; for it is sheer madness to take hold of a man when he is struggling in the water, and if you do, you run a great risk. 4th. Then get close to him and take fast hold of the hair of his head, turn him as quickly as possible on to his hack, give him a sudden pull, and this will; cause .him to float; then throw yourself on your back also, and swim for the shore, both hainds having hold ...
