The total amount oL iron is Imnlll, but i neverthcles, it is o01 grcae ilportance, andl a deficiency re sulits in anaemia.

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914

GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls have not tlf materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, fE the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the Droductioln of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as seae shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for tile purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.

Presence of Mind.

Here it was that he was found one after noon by a wandering maniac, who crept upstairs and saw the feeble old man dozing. "Leap, Tom, leap!" he cried, and at the same time tried to throw him over the battlements. .More had not physical strength enough to resist, but he had the wit to say: "Let us first throw this little dog over." The man- immediately throw down, thd dog. 'Pretty sport," said the Lord Chan cellor. "Now, go down and bring him up again.". While the madman went down for the dog, More made fast the door be hind him, and so managed to hold the fort until deliverance came.
