HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

.. HEALTH BINTS. Hangnails can be cured If the ends of the fingers be rubbed with sweet oil as far down as the flrst joint Neuralgia may 'ery often be relieved by applying a cloth saturated with es sence of peppermint to the seat of pain. Finger-nails manicured every week will retain their delicacy and lustre much longer than those that are neglec Working with the head bent over is very injurious to the eyes, as it tends to gaiga the vessels of the eyes with blood and to produce congestion. When the eyes aria tired, a handker chief folded in four, soaked in cold water, and laid on them will be foui'd very efficacious, the compress being changed once or twice until relief is felt. For a burn apply wet tea leaves, either warm or cold. Cover with a piece of cotton or linen-, and keep on for one or two hours.

HEALTH HINTS. HOW TO MAKE POULTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908

HEAX.TR HINTS. HOW TO MAKE POUT/TICES. The commonest error in making a mustard poultice Is to use hot water. Why does mustard work good? On ac count of a volatile oil; the same oil that stings the mouth and the nc e when the condiment is t. ken too freely at a meal. This oil Is not In the dry mus tard. In the. dry mustard are two chemicals, put there by nature, not by the manufacturer. When mustard Is wetted with cold water these act on one another and produce a third material— the volatile oil. If the water Is hot It prevents the formation of the oil, so the mustard does not acquire Its most valu able property. To make a mustard poultice mix the. powder with cold water, and allow it to stand closely covered for five minutes. Then spread It on hot linen, or some other material. If you wish to prevent adhesion to the skin, well oil the part before putting on the poultice. To make a linseed -meal poultice mix a handful of linseed meal with as much hot .water as will make a thick paste...

THE GARDEN. THE "SPORTING" OF PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908

THE GARDEN. THE 'SPORTIITG' OF PLAHTS. One*of the main tenets of the doctrine of evolution Is that the process Is gradual, so gradual indeed 'hat under purely natural conditions, I.e., without the aid of human selection, very long periods are required for such a differen tiation as may justify separate specific classification. The principle of heredity Is so strong that In the majority or cases the offspring practically resemble the parents, and only differs Individu ally to the extent determined by differ ence of environment. Most plants tiave their special adaptations fitting them to exlBt within a limited range of condi tions, outside of which they perish. -Thus we have sun lovers and shade lovers and lime haters, aquatics and desert plants, and so on; but the study of evolution forces us to the conclusion that all these different adaptations have resulted from modifications of moisture and shade loving plants, some members of which have managed to maintain existence under somewh...

BANANAS FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908

- BANANAS FOB CATTXE. Tie use of the banana for any other purpose than that of human food would seem, in these days, when the fruit has become such a popular favorite, to savour at least of unpardonable extra vagance; yet In a recent number of the 'Agricultural Nona' nf narhaiioes we read* that MrC. W. Moaden, of the Go vernment Farm, Trinidad, recommends as the best way of utilising waste ban anas, that they should be ground up and given to live stock.
