TREATING WOUNDS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 February 1916
TREATING WOUNDS IN HORSES. Some of the things to bear in mind, when the horses are injured on barb wire, are pointed out by Dr. A. S. Alexander, of the Univer sity of Wisconsin. "After a barb wire accident, do not apply axle grease, or any rancid ointment to the wound," he says, "but wash the wound thoroughly with warm water. Then clip the hair as closely as possible around it, and wash again to remove any hair or other foreign substance. When sand ~or hair has lodged in the depths of a deep cut never use a wet sponge to clean it out. Use a piece of absorbent cot ton or cotton batting. There will be much less risk of iafection. "It will be useless to put stitches in a wound that is very deep or ragged, or that is located in a place not in perfect rest when the animal is making natural movements, Dry dusting powder has a healing effect on barb wire wounds, and other large, moist cuts and abrasions.. Such a powder may be prepared cheaply by mixing together equal parts of slaked lime, ...
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 February 1916
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. Notes from Charles Crook, of Bac chus Marsh, who, after being. in the trenches for somei months, was in valided to England: Military Depot, Abbeywood, Kent. Enjoyed m, short stay in Ireland very much. It's a grand place, and very rightly named "The Emerald Isle," for every square foot of earth seems to be green. You can get on the hills, and look for miles and miles. We had it pretty rough cross ing the Irish Channel, this, and the Bay- of Biscay, - is the worst I've struck, so far. Was lucky enough to get a short glimpse of Naples on the way over here, as we coaled there. There is some very pretty scenery along the Italian coast, and you can see quite plainly where the earthquakes were. Had a good look at Vesuvius, also Stromboli. Stayed at Gibraltar for a few hours, but of course we were not allowed ashore. It looks as though it would stand some shelling. Only took six ,lays from Lemnos to Southhampton, but we were on an exceptionally fast boat. We were very wel...

BACCHUS MARSH. No. 63. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 12 February 1916
BACCHUS MARSH. By WV. WI.LIAuS, B.A. No. 63. As I proceed through the files of the "Express' some little tit-bits 1 am constrained to omit. I have no - doubt that the local public would have enjoyed this and that particu lar scandal which the early Bacchus Marshites spoke of with bated breath, for Bacchus Marsh was not S one whit better than other commun ities. I find lengthened police court proceedings, and serious charges were. made, and. sentence passed. S But why revive these! The incident and perhaps the participators are dead. Charity dictates that a veil should be thrown over such frailty, and let the scandalmonger take heed lest he, too, fall. I am tempted though, just to reproduce an in stance of the amenities of those early days, which I come across in Police Court proceedings. There is a subtle humor about the evidence as given in the witness box by the belligerents. I say I must not men tion names, but this one particular case reads intensely funny. Two prominent inhabit...

"Comie with me, men, and I will show you a game better than all the football matches ever you saw; a thousand times better than all the fights you may have seen at the Stadium, because you Will be able to take part in it, and that is what every true -Australian glories in. It is all very well for people to say that Australia is safe; Australia is not safe. She is only in the posi tion she is to-day because of the British flag, and the part the Navy has played. If England should lose in this great struggle, where will we be? The fact that Germany has since the beginning of the war in creased her territory and population by nearly 50 per cent. should be sufficient for you to realise that we have not won the war. Those whom you have sent away are not fighting for fighting sake-they are fighting for you young, men who remain at home. We want you. Will you come? I know the urgency, and do not hesitate to ask you to put on the finest clothes ever worn- the King's ...
