MAN-EATING FOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater ap pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tamed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile above sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied with cold or fatigue, the woman must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals.. A shy young man had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, being bashful, his suit Dpirogressed slowly. Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing,, so the next time he called she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose.". A crimson flush overspread his countenance, but the exchange was made after some hestitation on his part. .Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room.

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of-wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in thle water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. tie is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superfloouus, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the. worse for the lack of food and light and air. The baby turtle seems also Just as Indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. I?n its bIrain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter In gntlf weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the time it w...

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the chpwpest, simplest, yet most eftective of rernmedlies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulplhate. In the poulltry-yard it is in valuable, and no poultry-keeper can afford to be without iLt, for Its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhIoea, when the comb is purple in color and a ihen loses her appetite, is often remedied by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonfurl per bird, dissolved In warm water, and poured down the throat When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food suipply, in order that the medi cine may ,ave the full effect upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sr,dium sulphate. Tills saline treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on the...

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 25 March 1914

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. Under a costly canopy The village blacksmith sits. Before him is a touring car, Broken to little bits. And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their wits. The village blacksmith smiles with glee .\s he lights his fat cigar; lie tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, Stand humbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his bills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur weep, as they de clare They ne'er paid that b?.fore. lie goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his cash; A high silk hat and long frock coat HIelp him to cut a dash. tut the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; Ils humble shop has grown Into A building big and line. And it bears "Garago" above the door On a large electric sign.
