HEALTHY EXERCISE. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
HEALTHY EXERCISE. An elderly gentleman had in his later years become so penurious as to deny himself many of the necessities of life. A friend, who had sent him some sacks of coal, called on him one day shortly afterwards, and was sorry to see the old man sitting fireless in the depth of winter. "I hope the coals kept you warm?" she began. "They have, indeed! thank you very much for thinking of me so kindly!" said he. "But I am afraid they are all gone now?" she went on. ".Oh, no-quite the contraryl I have not burned any of them. Whenever 1 feel cold, I carry a sack up and down the stairs. The exercise warms me beautifully."

A COMPOSITE INTERVIEW.

An Australian series might now com mence with the reporter who yester day- interviewed sixteen imigrant do mestic servants at one and the same time. It was at the Domestic Help er's Home at Norwood, a building suf ficient!y palatial to inspire one with a degree of awe on the doorstep; and the "interviewees" so to speak were the girls who arrived at the outer harbor on the Monday morning on board the P and I) branch steamer Borda.

"And she will be a growing power and potency; the years, The ,treacherous years, will take her part, and ravish him from me, And she will make a title out of daily smiles and tears, And will pass to fuller blessedness through weakness which endears, And I shall be as one forbid before I cease to be." When Colonel Stamer re-entered the already dismantled villa, he was start led at the funereal solemnity which reigned throughout. The place bore the aspect of a tomb-the moonlight threw its vaporous beams on the la e roses, the verbenas, and geraniums, which seemed to welcome him with voiceless mirth, as the evening breeze rocked them to and fro. He envered the house with his latdh key swiftly and noiselessly-lihe never dreamt that Lenore would so soon have taken him at his word.

FODDER POISONING [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
FODDER POISONING -4- .On numerous occasions reports have been received from dll'erent parts of the State respecting a peculiar ailment among horses. As a result of inspec tions and investigations the oficers of the Stock 'Department have diagnosed the trouble as toxiemic paralysis, a con dition induced by the feeding of damaged fodder, such as "fusty" straw ,nd "rusty" hay, etc. Owing to the deadly character of the disease, the Stock Department desires to warn ow ners that the greatest care should be exercised in the supervision of the feed given to animals. It seems that stock are most commonly affected brough consuming straw that has become wet and musty and then has beeon chaffed up with good hay. The wet straw, when in the stack, undergo.s fermenta tive changes, followed by decomposition of moulds and fungi. The latter may be easily rccognised upon a close exami nation being made of a damaged bundle of straw or hay. When any quantity of such fodder is fed to horses the effects a...
