The Perfect Home Healer Fop Skin Sores and Injuries. Every Home Needs Zam-Buk. The Golden rule for every home is: "Keep Zam-Bak always, handy." "Whether it be" a bruised forehead, trapped finger, grazed knee, scalded foot, cut hand or sprained ankle. .Zam-Buk soothes away smarting pain, prevents the injury from tak ing'-bad ways," and ensures quick, healthy healing. Mrs M. Drury, Ranelagh St, Ade-. laide, says:—My son Arthur upset a cup of hot tea over his foot when he was quite young. The flesh being so tender was fearfully scald ed, and for three months the boy was in a shocking state. A nasty sore formed which seemed to be eat ing away the flesh. All efforts to bring the child relief were ineffec tive until we tried Zam-Buk. This halm proved remarkably soothing, and it soon caused the mass of in flammation to leave the. sores. As we persevered with it Zam-Buk began to heal the bad places, great progress being noticeable every day. Continued treatment with Zam-Buk eventually heale...

Lecture on Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 2 April 1914

Lecture on Poultry. *" Some weeks ago the members of the local branch of the A.N.A. discussed the advisability ot inviting an expert from the Department of Agriculture to deliver an address on Poultry Breed ing. It was unanimously decided to if possible get one, and the branch at once got in communication with Mr S. S. Cameron, the Director of Agricul ture. That gentleman stated the de partment was only too willing to arrange a lecture under the auspices of the branch, and that the only expense the Association would have to bear would be the advertising of the lecture and the hall rent. - The branch agreed to hold the lecture on i6tn March, but as our readers are aware, bush fires were raging throughout the district at about that time, and it was thought advisable to postpone the lecture for a fortnight.

Reserve Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Gippslander and Mirboo Times — 2 April 1914

Reserve Sports. As anticipated, the sports held on I'riday last in aid of the Mirboo North ( Recreation Reserve were considerably marred by wet weather. The meeting i fortnight previous had to be post poned on account of the fires which were raging at that time throughout the distiict. Sports and race meetings at Mil boo North seem to be fated to be spoilt by wet weather or by some other means. During the past four or five years hardly a meeting has bvien held without heavy rain falling during the day. On several occasions when the morning proved fine, a thunderstorm occurred during the afternoon. On Friday last heavy black clouds began to gather soon after noon. At times it looked as if the storm would miss the township, but unfortunately for the sports niee ing, rain began to fall at about 2 .o'clock, and soon after the start of the first pony race it began to fall in torrents, and everyone except the judge had gone to a place of shelter •before the ponies had fairly entered the s...

Mirboo South Sports On Wednesday, 25U1 March, the annual sports were held on the local reserve, and were fairly well attended. The number of first class runners were very limited this year, hut was compen-; sated for in a slight measure as far as finances were concerned by the number of entries by local residents in the Dis trict Handicap, as there were about 30 nominated for this event. The Shef field Handicap had 10 entries, but only 3 got on their mark to try con clusions, and as a consequence the com mittee decided for a reduced prize. The winner proved lo be B.
