COLIC DRENCH FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 February 1914
COLIC DRENCH FOR HORSES. Almost every veterinary surgeon has his own special formula for colic drench, and thus the contents of the bottle varies according to the ideas of the prescriber, and, to some extent at least, according to what he conceives to be the requirements of the case. If you want a formula for a colic drink to keep by you for use in emergencies, the followling will be suitable:--Tinc- ture of opium, 1 ounce; oil of turpen- tine, 2 ounces; linseed oil, to 1 Pint. Give this as it is, followed by a little warm gruel. Walk the horse about to prevent his rolling, rub the belly with a wisp, and, if necessary, re- peat the drench in two hours, but not more than two doses should be given. Understand that it is not claimed that this recipe is better than any other. It may not even be the most suitable under all circumstances, but it is in- expensive, easily procured, will keep good for any length of time if properly corked and sealed, and often cuts short an attack in its ini...
FOR THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 18 February 1914
FOR THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. Farmyard manure consists of the solid and liquid excrements of ani- mals and the litter with which these substances are mixed and absorbed. Its value for fertilising purposes de- pends to a great extent upon the way in which it is handled in the dung- stead. In this respect (says a writer in an English farm journal) its man- agement too often leaves much to be desired, and, taking the country all through, enormous quantities of valu- able plant nourishment are lost. T'he atmosphere is the chief agent which produces the decomposition of the ammonia in the manure and causes it to escape, and therefore the air must be shut out of the manure heap as much as possible. The freer the air can penetrate the heap the more rapid is the decomposition and consequent loss of ammonia; indeed, it may be said that a rational treat- ment of the manure does not exist un- less the heap is tightly compacted. "Keep it moist and tread it tight, And it will well your care r...

MARRIAGES. HOPKINS-WARRIN -On the 20th Decem- ber, at Christ Church, St. Arnaud, by the Rev. J. W. Davison, James H Hopkins, second son of Mr. and Mrs. L. G. Hopkins, of Ballarat East, to Miss &nbsp; Violet May Warrin, third daughter of Mr. and Mr. James H. Warrin, of St. Arnaud. IN MEMORIAM. CRONE,-In sad and loving remembrance of &nbsp; our darling son and brother, Maurice, who died on the 17th of February, 1912. Aged 12 years. It is just two sad years to-day Since our dear Maurice was called away. His memory is as dear to-day As in the hour he passed away, We loved him here-he is dear to us &nbsp; But in grief we must bend to God's holy will Only those that have loved are able to tell Of the pain at heart in saying farewell. Often when our thoughts do wander To the one we loved so well, Absence makes the heart grow fonder, How we miss him none can tell. R.I.P. -Inserted by his loving parents, brother and sisters, Lascelles. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1914.
