A Real Home Lesson. Father and Daughter Heal Their Cuts and Scalds with Zam-Buk. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 March 1914
A Real l ome Lesson. Father and Daughter Heal Their Cuts and Scalds with Zatm-Bulk. In thousands of homes Zam Buk is daily demonstrating its wonderful utility as a first-aid for accidents. Rnmarkable sooth ing, and antiseptic properties make Zam-Buk the ideal healer for cuts, bruises, burns. scalds, sprains, etc. Zam-Buk subdues pain antd inlflammlation, prevents fostering, and ensures a speedy and perfect relief. The experience of Mrs. U. S. Boys, Cawthorne St, Southwark, Adelaide, is a typical instaone. "My children," she says, "are always in the wars, but, thanks to Zamn-Buk, their injuries are speedily healod. My little girl Thelma fell and cut her knee-cap. The wound was very deep and for a few days shle was practically a cripple. Ordinary remedies did her no good. I then appliedZanm. Buk, which in a few days healed her knee splendidly. "My eldest daughter, Kathleen, soverely scalded her arm with steam from the kettle. Her arm blistered up in a fearful manner, but a prompt appl...
Temperance Corner. Boys and Cigarettes. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 March 1914
Temperance Corner. S [CONTRIBUTED.] Boys and Cigarettes. That the smoking of cigarettes is not only leading hundreds of boys to the public-house, but also loads many into crime is a fact. The effects of cigarette using by boys would be a startling re velution to many of their mothers if they understood the alarming proportions to which it has grown. I read the other day what a magistrate in New York said while on the bench. He had thirty-five boy prisoners before him: thirty-three of them were confirmed cigarette smokers. And to-day, he said, I have made the gruesome discovery that two of the largest cigarette, manu facturers in this country soak their produce in a weak solution of opium. The fact that out of thirty-five prisoners thirty-three sn.oked cigarettes might seem to indicate some direct connection between cigarettes and crime. Thousands ot these cigarettes are sent to this country; and as opium is like whisky, it creates an increasing appetite that grows with what it feeds...

Farmer and Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 March 1914
uarmer and Grrazier. The current issue of this eminently practical journal is to hand from the publishers. It opens with an instructive article on "The Laying Leghorn," which emphasizes the important fact that a great mistake is made by anyone who imagines that all Leghorns are profitable egg lay ers, pointing out that only Iy securing specially good egg-lhying strains of the breed, and culling out unprofitable hons, can good re suits be obtained. In other parts of the issue is given information with regard to a great variety of subjects associated with the farm ing.and grazing industries. A little boy named Miles, whilst re turning from a neighbor's house, at Bright, on Friday, trod on a esnake, which wound itself round his log. Several youths who were near by uncolledthe snake, which fortunately did not bite the child.
