DOG AILMENTS HINTS AS TO TREATMENT HOW TO GIVE MEDICINE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

HINTS AS TO TREATMENT HOW TO GIVE MEDilCINE The following hints on tne treatment, of dogs affected with various ailments is supplied by "Medicus" in "Our Dogs" (England). "One of the most important matters to consider in doctoring a dog is the best form in which to give him medi cine. So much depends, especially with highly-bred and nervous dogs, upon the manner in .which they are physicked. It is easy to do a dog more harm than good by forcing medi cine down which he resents. The struggling and distress that I have seen dogs subjected, to in this way, when the whole thing could have been car ried out without the least disturbance, has often surprised me. Besides, there are some medicines that must be given to many dogs in a more or less secret manner, and 'without the patient becoming aware of the fact. Take, for instance the oil or extract.of male, fern, frequently given as a destroyer of tapeworm. Many dogs will vomit this regularly, so irritating is it to their stomachs. Arid if...

WITH BALL CARTRIDGE JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

WITH BALD CARTRIDGE JANUARY. 3.—Club events, Port Melbourne and wn liamstowa ranges. In respect to the selection of the next Bis ley team several views have already been expressed. Lieut.-Colonel Semmens, shooting captain of the last team, states that the i present system of picking the team a few weeks before the men take their departure cannot be much improved upon. The Cana dian team-is fixed up 10 months before the imen leave for England, but that is altogethrr too long a period, as a man might go stale in the meantime. Their method of selection is, to say the least, simple. In . one of the matches at the Do-minion meeting the win ners of the first 20 prizes are placed in the Bisley team and that stands good in spite of everything. The £2000 which was recently passed by the Federal Government for .the visit of the Com monwealth rifle team to Bisley in 1914 just about pays expenses, but even with Mr Sem mens' , careful economy it is necessary to spend a little more than £2000 in ...

Cruiser-was bred by Mr H, Johnson, of Penshurst, and was selected ■ on.-account'-of suitable breeding lines. Mr Harris, writing to "Slipper," s&ys:—You will be pleased to hear that Cruiser is doing well, and is out of quarantine. This is a most trying time for any dccg, and Mr Oscar Asc'he will find the greatest difficulty in getting Ms dogs fit to' run this season. Cruiser as well liked by many breeders here. Besides my own bitches, he has already six . nominations, including Sweet Sauce, probably one of the fastest bitches seen out for some years, ana a .good, winner." Cruiser's stud fee is 10 guineas.

SHEEP DOGS SOME OF THE POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

SHEEP. DOGS ROM'TTl OTP TT-TTH POINTS. To be successful with sheep dog's (says a writer in-an exchange) two thing's are essential; The first, and by far the most important, is complete control oyer your own temper, with a great deal of perseverance and pa tience. Secondly comes the dog*, which should be from a good working strain. The best time to buy a.dog is in the slack season, about a month after dip ping. If the dog is a stranger to you, be sure you see him work on a sunny day, the hotter the better. Do not en tertain the idea: of buying a high priced, strange dog on a cold day, for he may prefer the shade when he is wanted in the sun. The writer continues: "The breed I fancy is the short-haired .black and tan collie. The dog should be pre-" ferably on the small side, have black eyes, good head, not too pointed nose, and broad between the eyes. The first half of the tail should be in a line -With the back, and the second half should - have a slight curve upwards. It is necessar...

BATHROOM RUG. OLD FORM REVIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

BATHROOM RUG. OLD FORM REVIVED. Somehow a bathroom rug is a more or less unsatisfactory proposition. This is because water will splash upon it, and damp towels, and un slippered feet insist upon seeking its soft surface. And so, from sheer sanitary necessity, the bathroom rug- must be washable; and from sheer contrariness a washable rug will slip and wriggle. But there is one kind that is more quietly inclined than most, because it $s heavier—the old rag rug of our < grandmothers'. days. . Cut an oval from some heavy wash able material the size you desire the rug \vhen finished. Denim would answer the purpose. Then from strips, of some heavy, soft, washable goods make an even braid, being careful to fold in the rough edges neatly while plaiting the strips. The braid may be as wide or as nar row as you wish, and the strips cut oc cordingly. If the rug is to be blue and white, have one strip of white and two of blue; so that the rug wilt not show the soil too easily. Do not...

GLASS CANDLESTICKS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

G-IuASS CANDLESTICKS. In spite of the increasing; use of electricity, candles are to be used more than ever for table decoration; Sometimes they are unshaded, and when they have a shade it is nearly always edged with a fringe of glass beads. It is a. quaint idea, to adorn these shades, when they are of Empire ; shape, with portraits of famous beau ties, framing them with ribbon roses. Glass candlesticks are much in fa for for the> table, and placed in the centre with flowers grouped about their bases they look extremely pretty. A pretty idea for table illumination, is to hide an electric bulb in the middle of artificial flowers, such as a bunch of roses, which are then sur rounded by real flowers.

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE HOME SEWING SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

SEWING SCREEN There have been innumerable de vices brought forward for sewing, tables, bags, and baskets, but a sew ing screen is a novel idea. The illus tration gives a clear impression of how the screen should be fashioned. Fitted with roomy pockets both top &nd bottom on either side, a movable shelf, and ' convenient supports for^ cottons, it makes a handy receptacle in the tidy housewife's room. Such a varied and artistic range of colors and designs are now to be obtained, among cretonnes and chintzes for a moderate sum that the screen could be made a most attractive piece of fur niture at a very trifling cost. The method also offiers a good suggestion, for a new use for old screens. ,

FISHERS IX PERU) SHARK ENCOUNTERED IN BAY G. Craig and J. M'Diarmid, two ama teur fishermen, had an exciting adven ture with a shark in Kissing Point Bay, Parramatta River on December 23. The men found that a fiathead which they hauled into their boat was partly eaten by sharks, go they decided to rig a shark line. The shark took the bait, but, becoming- enraged, tore the line out of the hands of the fishers, and, rising- to the surface, charged towanls the skiff in which they were sitting. He struck the boat, and nearly overturned it. M'Diarmid, in making a blow at the monster with an oar. fell overboard I within a few yards of the shark. Craig I water to rescue his friend. Craig struck the shark, which then headed towards Abbotsford. Craig seized M'Diarmid.and swan ashore with him. Both were exhausted when they arrived.
