Sleepy Grass. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 30 April 1898
Sleepy Grass. In some parts of New Mexico there glows a grass -wh'ich produces a somni ferous effect on the animals that graze upon it. Horses, after waiting this grass, in nearly all oases stand sleeping, while caws and sheep almost invariably Us down. It lias occasionally happened 'that travellers have stopped to allow horses to feed in places where the grass grow pretty thickly, and the animals have had time lo eat a considerable quantity before i'ts effects manifested themselves. In such cases horses have gone to sleep on Uie road, an-d It is hard bo a-rcuse them. The effect af the grass passes off In an hour or two, and no toad results have' ever been noticed on account of it. Ca'tHc- on (he randies (according to ?' . Pearson's Weekly') frequently come upon patches of this grass, where they feed for perhaps hall-an-hour, and then fair asleep for an hour or more, when they wake up and start feeding again. The programme is repeated perhaps a dozen times, until thirst- obliges the...
Impurities in Water. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 30 April 1898
Impurities in Water. Impurities in water are a fertile source of disease, but none are more hurtful, perhaps, if we except disease germs themselves (e.g., typhoid ffernis), than metallic poisons. Lead is th-? most com mon of such impurities, and drinking water containing lead gives rise to diarvh.i.'A, and to Jead paralysis, one sign of which is wrist drop, or want of power in raising the hand. Even a very minute quantity of lead in the water ;s surlk'ient- to pro duce poisonous symptoms.
