HOME DOCTORING ABSCESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
HOME DOCTORING BY AuOicOLT IN THE BEND1GO INDEPENDENT. ABDSCESSES. 1,' It is now proposed to briefly deal with some of the ailments which require sur gical attention, before proceeding with unsoundnesses and their treatment (if any). After that the commoner dis eases of animals, other than the horse, will follow. An abscess is a collection of pus due to some foreign body, such as a stake, a pus-forming organism, or a piece of dead tissue, such as a splinter of bone. The presence of this body sets up a chronic inflammation, which .results in the destruction of the surrounding tissue. The destruction of the tissue will cmn tinue until the abscess has evacuated outwardly, or becomes surrounded by a thick, fibrous capsule and is re-absorbed. Most abscesses tend to point and burst outwards. They are hot and painful, and have a decided tendency to work downwards in their destructive course. The treatment should aim. at- the emptying of the abscess as soon as pos sible. If it has pointed (...

ERADICATING SORREL [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
ERADICATING SORREL South-eastern farmers, particularly ;those who have sorrel on their land, will be interested in the following from the LAUNCESTON ExAMIINER : - " I can guarantee a practical clearance of the -rubbish if the lanl is treated with lime and some form of potash. The idea oc-. curred to me that there was something in this treatment while reading the re sults of 3one experiments with potatoes at the famous Rothamstead Experiment al Station in the old country. The re port, in which details were closely fol lowed and lucidly explained, stated, among other things, that the plots that had been limed, and on which potash had been used, were clear of the sorrel, while other plots were red with it at a certain stage. Farmers can easily recog nize the period when the sorrel paddock is red-just at present they. are in that order in the district where the writer re sides. Sorrel appears to come very strongly after using superphosphate for reveral years, and the root formation thic...
MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
I ELBOUURNE LETTER (Fromn oeu Special Correspondent.) 'The good opinion Australians have of themselves-ono of the characterist ics that seem to strike every visitor-is not likely to be enhanced by the show ing 1nade by the Defence Forces when under the tritical eyes oftihat distin guished soldier, Sir lan Hamilton. The awful muddle of the ceremonoial parade at Royal Park is mortifying not only to those directly concerned, but to the whole community. Most people who try to avoid hasty judgements have been slow to condemn some phases of the Defence scheme which are, to say the least, disquieting. The disposition is to give the thing time to "find it self"-to get into weot,in i- :-der, in the hope that some of the crudities would daapeai' But there are some. features :tout the Work. ing out of the ig undertaking entered upon so light-liheartdly tihat compel serious consideration.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 6 March 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To prevent Iron Mould: Before us ing copper, well rub with 'a clean par albn rag. Be sure to always fill the copper qu te full of water. When linished, never let the soapy water re main in with the idea of using it for cleaning purposes, as this is alniost sure to cause iron mould. . A capital I idea is to empty rho copper before the fire is quite out. This enables it to become absolutely dry, therefore leav ing no chance for iron mould. Another remedy for ink stains: Well rub any ink stains in linen with a ripe tomato cut in half, and the stains will quite disappear in the wash. This remedy also proved satisfactory in' re moving ink iroms dark cloth, the art icle being sponged witlr cold rain water altei'"tomatiy was applied. To remove egg stains: When table linen is stained with egg, it should be soaked in cold water blcore being sent t the laundry. The stains come out quite easily if treated in this way, but iot water sets them and makes them doubly hard' to'remo...
