The Shire. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 30 October 1907

The Shire. Considering that Picton is the largest town nearest the centre of the Wollondilly Shire, we think that steps should be taken to merge the Municipality of Picton into the shire. A glance at the map reveals the fact that Picton is the largeBt town in the centre of the shire, and we think it would be for the benefit of all concerned if the Picton Muni cipality was merged into the shire, and the headquarters made here. The @osf ord Municipality has just been merged into the Erina Shire to the entire satis faction of all concerned. Why not Picton ? * ? ? Pictou has nothing to lose by the shire having its headquarters here, and it would be of benefit to the surrounding. district and to the shire itself. The shire has to do all its banking business at Gamden, which is outside the shire, and all appeals in con nection with the assessment could tie heard here instead of being heard in three different places — Picton, Camden, uud Yerranderie — as the courthouse is situated in Picto...

HUMOR AT THE BUSINESS EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 30 October 1907

HUMOK AT THE BUSINESS EXHIBITION. A welcome relief to the strenuous busi ness of the Business Exhibition was pccasipnally afforded by touches of humor.

HARLEQUIN TRAINS. MODERN BAILWAY TRAVEL. _ . Railway .. wonders, . - so far from ceasing, are accumulating as the love of travel grows stronger. There 'are other things on the English railways besides mammoth locomotives, .mile a minute and non-stop runs, 'long tunnels cut through' rock or sand, and cantilever bridges, which de serve our admiration. You think when you have travelled by the Fly ing Cornishman from Paddington to Plymouth, a distance, via Westbury, of 226 miles at an average speed of 54 miles an hour, which is the longest non-stop run in the kingdom —you think when the North-Eastern express has whirled yon over the 44 miles from Darlington to York in 43 minutes, which is the fastest schednlsd tpftft^ on any Britiah, line, that these performances, besides being the pride of our locomotive engineers, are the greatest triumphs of railway science.

Usually, (n congested liver, there is a yellowish tlnee to the face and skin of the bird, and the drop pings take on the. same hue. First of all, give a good dose of Epsom salts (about 6gr.), and lOgr. of bicarbonate of potash, twice a day. Tills may be al ternated with 6gr. of rhubarb. Or rhu barb alone is good. About 10 drops of nitric acid may be given birds. Do not allow the whole flock to partake of this drink, however, unless all are afflicted. Some, liniment, such as would be suitable for internal Inflammation, may be ap plied to external parts in the region of tbe liver, and result in some benefit. The bird may also be held o...
