THE DOG TAX. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914

THE DOG TAX. (TO TuE EDITOR.) Sir,-I notice in your issue of Jane 19th, a correspondent from Genoa writes re dog taxes, and is of opihion that the Dog Act should be more rigorously enforced. Well, now I am of quite a different opinion, as to dogo in country places, and where stock owners have to use them daily. I don't think it right that they should be made to pay for them, especially when such a large amount as 75 percent. goes to the col lecting of such rate. Dogs are also of great use to settlers for rabbit destruction. Since rabbits have become such a nui sance to land-holders, dogs, in some places, go a long way towatds stopping bunny from taking charge altogether Registering a dog, will not stop him killing sheep, and sheep owners have other resources to take If they catch another man's dog killing their sheep. Correspondent states that Mr Woodger had 17 sheep killed by tame dogs. Well Mr Woodger had 17 cheep killed by his own dog which was shot in the act. Correspondent stat...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914

woMEN's INTERESTS. (By "Ambrosine.") The well-dressed woman should nedver be without a black hat both for summer and winter; it will go with anything, and neither fades nor dates. Exercise is the only safe means of counteracting a natural tendency to be conme stout. The use of vinegar for this purpose is much to be deprecated. A veil to look smart should be lightly tied on to the hat, and then pinned over at the nape of the neck. This gives it a fashionable appearance, and serves the double purpose of keeping the hair tidy. Cultivate a serene mind, which is de termined to make the best, instead of the worst, of things. Worry will cause unlovely lines upon the face, and make a person grow old before his or her time. White satin collars may be rinsed out in ether and eleansed, inimediately. Do not try to sponge off the spots, for that leaves a ring, but put a little ether in a small bowl or teacup, squeeze half the collar at a time, and it comnies out perfectly white. Deep, regular br...

A SMALL SHEEP DIP. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914

A SMALL SHEEP DIP, . ~ € After what I have seen on some farms, and indeed what I have found to be a boon in my own case, is a small sheep dip for one's own use, in whichb tbe sheep are thrown by hand, We all know what a trouble it is to take one's sheep to a public dip, or one owned by a neighbor. The various mobs on the place have frequently to be bored for dipping pur poses, necessitating a lot of work in drafting. The sheep are often hurried through a public dip at too fast a rate, and they are sometimes put through the dip on a showery day, when they should be kept out of it, simply because it goes against the grain to travel the sheep a distance for nothing. Even if the number of sheep on the place tally up to one or two thousani, a small hand dip will be found to fulfill all requirements. The work may be done quite as fast as the driving, dipping and drafting conse quent upon taking the flick to a larger dipi and the operation can be carried out for probably half the money. Th...

THE CARE OF THE CART WHEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914

THE CARE OF THE CART WHEEL. Mr T. F. Truman, of the Tatiara branch of the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia, gave some hints, at the Millicent conference, on the care of cart wheels. He said that all wheels with spokes and felloes should havea little time spent on them. That would save the farmer a great deal of trouble later on. Itwas amistake to tire the wheels very often. Unless the smith were careful they would dish. He suggested that an old-fashioned pig trough with out partitions should be obtained. Into this pour a drum of raw lineeed oil. Swing the wheel over the trough, and then put a fire under the trough to keep the oil hot, giving the wheel a spin around every flow and again during about half a day. if a large trough were used two wheels could be treated at the one operation. If the tire were just beginning to get loose, it would tighten up and it would not come loose again for years. When the tires were very loose, a good plan was to have the wheels re-tired and th...

Woods; Great Peppermint Cure, I For Coughs and Coldeuoverfeiuls, I Od, hHILBLAINS AND COLD SORES. ZAM-BUK SPEEDILY ENDS WINTER SKIN-TORTURE. Obilblains are a mild form of frost ite. The affected part, whether on iands, ears or toes, is always much in iamed, and there is generally swelling, eedness, and a painful, maddening irri. tation. Gentle applications of Zam-Buk will quickly banish these discomforting symptoms, and, if the swellings burst, leaving the skin surface raw and ulcer ated, Zam-Buk is doubly valuable be cause of its unique healing and anti septic powers. " For many months," says Mrs A. Sch?utt, of Laria St., Thebarton, Ade laide, "my little girl Jessie was tortured by chilblains, which broke out on her feet, hands, and ears. The itching irritation was awful. The chilblains burst, and for three months Jessie was laid up. Her fingers and toes were in a terribly raw state, then the skin peeled off and made them worse. The suffer ingshe endured was horrible. Although we u...

FEDERAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 3 July 1914

FEDERAL CRISIS. -4--t IN a short time the country will be plunged again into the throes of a Federal election, but we must con fess to being pessimistic as to the result. The action of the Gov ernor-General in dissolving both Houses just because the Seriate refused to pass a couple of bills, might well be debated if anything "were to be gained by it. The bills referred to were not important national measures nor was there any evidence of deliberate or re peated demand for them by the country. If the two Houses are to be dissolved whenever the Sen ate refuses to pass a measure of secondary importance at the first time of asking, it would be as well to do away with the Senate alto gether. The Governor may have felt that as Parliament is now con stituted there is a deadlock and no progress can be made. A disso lution may effect a change in one direction or another: but we do not feel at all sure that it will. As to the House of Representatives, Labor had an overwhelming maj ority in th...
