VALUE OF THE VERMIN DESTRUCTION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 8 May 1915

VALUE OF THE VERMIN DE STRUCTION ACT. (By F. E. Allan, Chief Inspector). For the eight months endiing 28th Feb., 1915, about forty-five million strychnined apple and carrot baits ' have been used by this Department, and about five times that quantity in free feed. Experience has proved that about seven poisoned baits to a rabbit is -the fair thing. This would be about six and a half mil lion. There are also the rabbits that are .killed with the phosphor ised bait, digging-out, fumigating, &c., which would be some millions more. Say a total of eight or nine millions-equal easily to over a mil lion sheep, or their equivalent. But these figures are nothing com pared to the quantity the operation of the Act causes the .deaths of. That is, of course, impossible to de termine closely; but the only way to arrive at a knowledge of the vast quantity killed in this State is to go by the Government Statist's figures. Take 1913 as a basis, as I have not got the 1914 figures yet, and, an...

THE LIFE OF THE BUSH NURSE [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 15 May 1915

THE LIFE OF THE BUSH NURSE The testimony from high officets in the Army Medical Corps at the front makes it clear that in person ality, as well as in training, the Australian nurse is above the aver age. But all the capable and all the brave nurses have not left these shores. One particularly able branch, of the nursing profession-that is, the Australian Bush Nurses-is de scribed in the May issue of "Every lady's Journal," and the tale arouses one's admiration for this noble band of women workers. The position of bush nurse is one which has its hardships, and even its perils, but judging from the account in "Every lady's Journal" it is one which has its glorious compensations, and its humours, as well as its sorrows. The article is illustrated with a number of photographs, and brightened with many stories. This is one of many artiees in the May issue of this journal, which also contains an instalment of a serial story: The free patterns and fashion designs are given. "Every lady's J...
