A Short Story. A Tale of a Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915

A Short Story. A Tale of a Dog. (By W.J.W.) This is a dog's tale—I mean n la.e of a dog. He was only a dog. and his tail was brief, but wag gish—most tails are. His nam'.' was Sport. Just here I wish it to be known that if there are any dogs throughout the districts where the " Northern District Standard" circu'ates so freely, who have the name of Sport, they are not in any way concerned in this tale, (lam try ing toovade an action for libel). The poodle here referred to came into this world at an early period of his existence. lie was a tricky little varmint and was promptly chris tened—when the first shower fell — Sport. But it was a misnomer, for his life was lived mostly in giief. He was an affectionate cuss—I mean customer. He owned my mate, I think; I meant to say that my mate owned him, and he owned me. for he clung to me closer than a friend (male gender) and a brother. He produced what may be termed ma thematical flees, because they mul tiplied quickly on him. He launched h...

Reduce Flesh With Sea Leaves. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915

Reduce Flesh With Sea Leaves. Any man or woman who is troubled with a burden of excessive fat eati easily reduce to ativ desired Amount by following the simple, harmless plan of eating sea leaves obtained from plants growing in the sea off the coast of France, i Natives of this part of the coast readily get the plant itself, but for the convenience of those not so fortunately .situated; most chemists keep them in compressed or tablet form under the chemical name of salith leaves, and if taken according to the simple directions that accom pany them, will invariably reduce flesh at the rate of two or three pounds a week, and at the same time greatly improve the general health. It is interesting to note that when salith leaves are used the skin remains firm without any ten dency to become flabby or wrinkled.

Magnesia for Dyspeptics. Specialists Recommend It Instead of Drugs. "Only those in constant touch with sufferers from indigestion and dyspepsia can fully realise the harm done by the improper use of drugs and artificial digestants," remarked an eminent physician recently. " Personally I rarely advocate the use of drugs in the treatment of digestive or stomach troubles, for in practically every instance I have proved the underlaying cause to be acidity of the stomach and con sequently fermentation of the food contents. Therefore, in place of the once wisely-used drugs I in variably recommend the use ^ of magnesia to neutralise the acidity and stop the food fermenting, aud the wonderful results I have ob tained during the past three years convince me that there is no finer' treatment for indigestion, dyspep sia, &c. It must, of course, be clearly understood that 1 do not employ or advise the use of such forms of magnesia as citrates, ace tates, sulphates, &c.—these wou...

with which ii incorporated the Boort j Standard, Korong Vale Lancc. and Quam-1 batook Herald. I Interesting reading matter will be ! found on our sixth page. Thursday, September J. War and Waste. It was Wilkins Micawber, the prince of petty spendthrifts, who enunciated the true principles of domestic economy. He pointed out that income .£20, expenditure ,£19 19s od, means happiness ; in come .£20, expenditure ,£20 0s 6d, means misery. Mr Fisher, as Trea surer, seems to have taken a hint irom Micawber : in bis financial statement he sang the praises of economy, in his estimated expen diture for the year he plays the part of light-hearted prodigal. With almost paternal solicitude, he ad vices wealthy Australians to hus band their resources, and he hastens to show them how very easily an optimistic Ministry will squander any money they save. Mr Cook treated the Treasurer's statement very gently ; in his anxiety to avoid any display of party feeling he confined himself to criticism whic...

Ladies' Column. The Return of the Petticoat. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915

Ladies' Column. The Return of the Petticoat. (By Rosaland). The lure of the petticoat is the very latest whisper from the fickle lips of Dame Fashion. For the past two or three years it has been an almost forgotten and totally neglected article of feminine attire. Now, however, -it is to he reinstated in its former ' position of import ance, and it returns in all manner of new and captivating styles, en : naring us and awakening our ad miration with its /reshlj- developed beauty and charm. Of course, the revival cf the wide, flared skirts is the main cause ol the reappear ance of the petticoat. The dainty airiness of the new dresses makes a foundation of some sort quite a necessity in order to attain correct lines. And, like the skirts, these dainty petticoats appear in all mau ner of flare effects, and provide just the right amount of bouffancy or bounce to make successful the ful ness of the upper garment and to ensure its being dispensed to the greatest advantage.

Remedies for Horse Sickness The Bot Fly. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915

Remedies for Horse Sickness (By T.D., Boort.) Tho Bot Fly. Tlie hot lly is much talked of amongst Piorse owners. Some say tliat it is the cause of many deaths among horses. Now, I would like to state that there is not a living horse that has not got the hot fly. The bot fly helps the horse to digest his food, hut I will say that the bot brings on colic, and that is what kills the horse. It is too well known to need description. They lay their eggs on the legs, flanks, and other portions of the horse's body easily reached. The animal, in licking its body, takes the eggs into its mouth and, being swallowed, they hatch and the young fasten themselves by means of their hooks to the mucuous membrane of the s'.omach. Here they live and grow and next season become mature, and are passed from the animal and undergo their transformation to the perfect fly in the earth. So long as the animal is in perfect health they do little, if any, harm, but in case of disease or insufficient food they be...

Feeding Dry and Newly-Calved Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 2 September 1915

Feeding Dry and Newly Calved Cows, There is a natural tendency with most good cows to bccomc fat when not yielding milk. 1 he dry cow shouid rcccivc such feed as will allow her to attain a good body condition. Grass is the best feed for this purpose, and if the dry cow can flesh up on grass alone it should be done. At calving time a cow should he in good flesh without being in prime beef condition. Should i the paddock fail to supply the fodder necessary to fatten the dry cow the grazing should be supplemented by hand-feeding. The proper time to begin is six to eight weeks before calving. The feeds given at this time should meet the following re quirements : rest and cool out the digestive tract, supply nourishment for the growing foetus or unborn calf, and build up flesh and strength for the cow herself. Green corn, ensilage or lucerne hay are the best hulk fodder for springing cows, and three or four pounds of crushed oats or bran daily is all the grain food necessary. It is well ...
