VALUE OF COMMON SALT [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 3 November 1914

VALUE OF COMMON SALT Besides being such ail essential part of culinary art, salt lias many other uses perhaps not generally "known. Salt cleansos the palate and furred tongue, and a gargle of salt and water is often efficacious. A pinch of salt on the tongue, followed ten minutes after by a drink of cold water, often cures a sick headache. Salt hardens the gums, makes the teeth white, and sweotens the breath. Added to the water in which cut-llowors stand, it keeps them fresh. Salted water and alcohol in solution should be used for robbing weak ankles. Salt used dry in the same manner as snuff will do much to relievo colds, hay fever, etc., etc., and, if used for bathing tired oyes, it will lio found very refreshing. Salt and water will slop hemorrhage from the extraction of teeth.

Tho objoct of the deputation was to have the duty on fodder suspended during tho currency of the drought.
