WORMS IN DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908

WOBUS IN JWOS. The presence of worms nataraUy tends to reduce a dog In condition. Many, dogs remain permanently so until a | thorough dosing. 1b given them. Change of air and surroundings win often have a wonderful effect In pulling a delicate animal together. If a holiday is spent in the country, where it Is possible to get a good deal of milk, let the dog have as mucn as ne win lane, urns is us good for Invalid dogs as for human be ings. Then, again, dogs can get so much more exercise In the country than in the town. They can scamper about to tbetr hearts' content without Interfering with anyone or anything. In fact, a holiday will put new life and vigor into a aog just as it does Into a man. Dogs always do better in the csuntry with plenty of fresh air and healthy exercise. That is why owners of valuable dogs often make arrangements for them to live In the country. They are leas likely: to suffer from contagious diBeasea, al though, of course, they are Just as liable ^triii'Tnei;...

VALUE OF SOOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908

VALVE OF SOOT. Tons of soot are wasted annually, while the garden ground is positively suffering from want of nourishment that it could supply. The grower who uses it with discretion (writes an exchange) will but hold its value higher as years go on. It is specially useful in small gardens, for which the animal manures are not easily obtainable, and look un pleasant when applied.. In fact, with a bag of nitrate of soda, a few tins of good cbemlcal fertiliser, and soot from tht i&lmneye, the cottage or villa gar dener can smilingly look for great re sults from his ground. On some still evening lightly dust the flower beds with soot, applying it most plentifully around the, plants— not touching the stems, but in a ring out aide. Water this thoroughly, golngover the same, .space j -with 'the .fine-rosed watering pot until you are sure the ^water-has .gone down; *'rult treea, feieen ! peas, French beans, scarlet runners, and vines, to mention only a few things, are beheated byji...

It might be assumed that the policy pursued by the trainer is to shoe heavily at home and lightly for ? the show. That, however, is exactly the op posite jjf what takes place.

'In all of her works she proclaims herself as a champion of the divine rights of women, but in quite a different way from tbe usually accepted Interpretation of this feminine shibboleth. It is from a purely ethical Etanrinnlnt nf Rnul ilai'alnmnpnr that she preaches this new doctrine of «oman'« right. She believes that only through spiritual and Intellectual de velopment can tliese rights be obtained. 'As she herself has it: 'No woman ever stepped out of a perfectly happy life of domestic contentment to grasp the . banner of emancipation in her hands and cry out through the streets . for woman's rights.'
