YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 27 January 1914
YET ANOTHER CAT STORY. To the .several highly interesting cut stories lo which you have already re corded tho widely extended publicity of your columns, 1 would like to add another (writes a correspondent to ♦•T.l"*. Weekly.") When living in the Midlands, we had as a household, pet, a line tortoise shell cat which had been with us from kittenhood. Out of a numerous yield of kittens, not one had resembled its mother, and while they were sum marily disposed of, sho who had givcu them birth was retained, and kept tho house and premises clear oi- vermin. After several years, she appeared to bo sulfering from toothache, evidence of which was forthcoming in a swollen face, always on the same side of tno face, and which interfered with her pleasant facial appearance, as I have seeu tiie case with human beings uudor similar circumstances. When suifer ing from those attacks, by her pitiful 1 look up into our iaees she seemed to appeal lor tho help wo could not yl ford, but we assured her of ...

STORING OF WINTER VEGE TABLES. . (Minna A. Stouor, Prof, jiomo Ecoti-' ornics, N.D. Agii. CoU) Tho Btoriug of winter vegetables is economical and desirable. In tho fall onough vegetables go to wasto from tlio average farm garden to supply tlio table during tlio entiro winter. Tlio task of storing is not diilicult if one lias u knowledge of tlie conditions bost suited for storago, and is willing to porform a small amount of labour. A dry well aired not too dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodhouso will serve the purpose. Tlio most favour able temperature is not over 00 dogrecs Fall. Celery, cabbage and swoot po tatoes should bo stored in the coolest part of the room. Hacks should bo adjusted on which to placo the storage boxes or barrels.

Bad Leg After a Knock. -.|.- Eight Months' Fearful Leg Ulcers. Limb Saved by Zam-Buk. As the outcome of a simple acci- dent—a knock on the leg—Mr W. E. . Brown, of Durham street, Auckland, N.Z., was crippled with flesh-eating ulcers for eight months. Telling how the limb was made quite strong and sound by Zam-Buk's healing, Mr Brown says:—''Through knocking my left leg against the edge of a box, I one day burst a varicose vein. A stream og blood gushed out, and it was some time before I could stop the outflow. Soon afterwards the wound became angry looking and ulcerous, and caused great pain. " I laid up and rested the limb, but it was no use, for the bad place got worse and worse, and terribly inflamed. Then the treatment of a medical man was tried, but it failed to bring any &nbsp; improvement. For eight months I &nbsp; was in fearful torment. The inflam- mation spread, the ulcers got deeper and bigger, and the leg was swollen enormously. " I had often heard of Zam...

INTRINSIC VALUE OF MANURE ON THE FARM. THE USES IT SERVES MAKE IT OF VAST ECONOMIC IMPORTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 30 January 1914
INTRINSIC VALUE OF MANURF ON THE FARM. THE US ICS IT SERVES MAKE IT OF VAST ECONOMIC IMPORT ANCE. It is imposiblo to accurately estimate tho full money value of farm matiuro. Its value as a fertiliser; that is, tho money value of tho plant lood that it adds to tho soil, may easily bo computed from a chemical analysis. But thiougli out tho country, as a general rule, its valuo as a fertiliser requires much loss consideration that its oilier values, lu effect upon tho soil far transcends in valuo tho valuo of tho plant food it adds to tho soil. Thivso othor uses ot farm manure are of prime importance to tho producing capacity of most soils They have not been given enough con sideration, and as a result, tho pro ducing capacity of these soils has nor been mado what it might easily havo been made. Nearly all soils are seriously lacking in vegetable content. Vegetable growth uses up the vegetable oontcnt of tho soil. After land has been suc cessfully cropped for a number of years tho dec...

CRESWICK POLICE STATION. LOWERING ITS STATUS. BOROUGH COUNCIL PROTESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 30 January 1914
CRESWICK POLICE STATION. * — LOWERING ITS STATUS. BOROUGH COUNCIL PROTESTS. The proposed reduction in the status of the Creswick police station, by the removal of the foot constable, was before the borough council at its meeting lasl Tuesday evening. The mayor said no doubt councillors had read with regret the announcement in that day's paper of the proposed change. On Monday morning he had been informed of the contemplated action to remove Coustable Donald, and Sergeant Robmson had been told to hold himself in readiness to be transferred, which meant that a senior constable would be appointed, and their only police protection would be that officer and a mounted constable. He had at oncc written to Sir Alex ander Peacock, asking him to endeavor to prevent the change being effected, and had given reasons why it should not take place. No doubt councillors would be able to advance oilier reasons against it. He felt that a protest should be made before the matter was finally settled, wh...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE SOCIAL PROBLEM. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 30 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. I TMli SOCIAL PROBLEM. ' |j To the Editor. Sir One would imagine lo vcid "E.D.S's." letter that he wd5 'he acme of knowledge, full of self asser tion, in like manner to a tuuey gobbler strutting around the yard with (cithers spread, daring anyone to approach him. The argument used by " E.U-S." in defence of the ex tremist is precisely similar to that given by . a number of egotistic Labor Socialists on the platform from lime to time (which is part ol their " stock in trade "), and invariably they allude to the dark ages, as my friend who has read history tells us of " the poot women with harness on their backs crawling along on their hands and kness, pulling trucks of coal after them," and " boys of five years work ing in mines and factories from 4 a-o to 8 p.m." In our enlightened age and a free country such ludicrous " iwaddle " lo use as an argument in favor of Socialism is contemptible. A number of sentimental people were no doubt influenced previously through wo...
