POULTRY MOTES. . it is surprising moro poultry-keepers do uot keep a well-filled dust lmth, which is tho best of all cures against, insect troubles. It is 1 title trouble or expense. Dry earth or road dust, to a depth of Oiiu to 32in., in a deop bos, kept in a dry, sheltered position, is all that is required. A litllo pow dered sulphur should bo added occus sionally, whilst enrbolio powdor is very ; useful iu bad eases.

STOMACH TROUBLE DUE TO ACIDITY. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 17 February 1914
STOMACH TROUBLE DUE TO ACIDITY. X . SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST So-called sluniach troubles, such as indigestiou, wiud, stomach-ache and inability to retain food, instead of in dicating that the stomach i? out of order, arc in nine cases out of ten simply evidence that fermentation is taking place in the food contents of the stomach, causing the formation of gas and acids. Wind distends the stomach, and causes the full, op pressive feeling sometimes known as heartburn, while the acid irritates and inflames the dclicatc lining of the stomach. The stomach, however, is not at fault. The trouble lies entirely in the fermenting food.
