To Start a Balky Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

To Mart a Balky H orar. An officer of the police said recent'y. "When I was a mounted policeman I learned of a most humane and kind method of curing a balky horse. It not only never fails, but it does not give the .slightest pain to the animal. When the horse refuses to go, take the front foot at the fetlock, and bend the leg at the knee-joint. Hold it thus for three minutes, and let it down and the horse will go. The only way in which I can account for this effective mastery of the horse is that he can think of only one thing -at a time, and having made up his mind not to go, my theory is that the bending of the leg takes bis mind from the original thought.

Applied to the shoes ?glycerine is a great preservative of the leather, and effctually keeps out water, and prevents wet feet. A few drops of glycerine put in the fruit jars the last thing before sealing them up help to keep the preserves from moulding on top. For flatulency there is no better remedy than a teaspoonful of glycerine after each meal. It will prevent and cure chapped hands. Two or three drops will often stop a baby's sto machache.

BURNING STEEL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

BURNING STEEL. Since Mr. C. E. Tripler, of Sew York, haa perfected his appa ratas for liquifying air, scientists have been able to make many carious experiments, as tbe liquid air can be secured in large quantities, says tbe " Scien tific American." When a dishful of the liquid air is dipped from the can it boils so violently that drops of it are projected some distance. The liquid is blue in colour, and a burn from it takes about six months to heal. Steel may be ignited in the liquid oxygen. It is only necessary to stick the point of a steel pen into a match, light it and thrust the whole into the liquid air to furnish sufficient heat to communicate the fire to the Steel. _

THE POODLE SAVED THE COLOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

THE POODLE SAVED THE COLO ÜIIS. Probably no dog has ever rendered such signal military service, or been so honour ably recognised, as the celebrated poodle Moustache, who shared the victorious for tunes of the French Army, through most of the wars of the Consulate and of the French Empire. He won special honours at Marengo, and was decorated on the battle field of AuBterlitE by Marshal Lannes as a reward for having rescued his regimental standard from an Austrian soldier when in the act of snatching it from the grasp of the standard-bearer, as he fell mortally wounded. The plucky poodle drove off the assailant, and then, seiring the tattered colours in his teeth, dragged them triumphantly till be reached his own company.

TOO SMART FOR THE GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

TOO SMART FOR TUE GENERAL. Marshal Alexander Suwarrow, the great Russian general, was something of a humour ist in bis way.and delighted in playing tricks on his soldiers and asking them pu wiling questions. One of his favourite pranks was to wake up the whole camp at daybreak by crowing, like a rooster, at which he was wonderfully skilful; and he would often dis guise himself as a private soldier and wander through the bivouacs, enjoying the strange adventures that befell him and the plain spoken criticisms upon himself which he heard. On one or two occasions, however, he met with his match. A trooper having brought him a message from the colonel of a dragoon regiment which had - just been en gaged in a ekirmish,Suwarrow asked the man pointedly, " What is the difference between your colonel and myself ? " The question waB a very awkward one to answer, for the colonel was one of the handsomest men in Russian Army, while the old marshal was hideously ugly. But the soldier, not a whit...

QUEER REMEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 3 November 1899

QUEER REMEDIES. Io parts of Devonshire the remedy for tooth-ache is to bite a tooth from a sknil in the churchyard and keep this always in the pocket. A very nasty core for ague prevails in Ire land, where the patient is made to s wallow a living spider. Spiders rolled np in buttei and swallowed alive are in Sussex considered good for jaundice. In the north of Scotland it is believed erysipelas may be cured by cutting off hali the ear of a cat and letting the blood drio on the inflamed surface. Toads and frogs enter largely into country folks' remedies, particularly in Devonshire and Cornwall. Rheumatism may be allevi ai ed by burning a toad to ashes and wearing the dust in a silk bag round the neck. Nose bleeding and quinsy are cured with dried and powdered toad, and the old smallpox anc dropsy remedy known as " Ethiopian pow der " was exactly the Bame thing.
