Drought in Pigeon Bay —The drought is being felt severely in Pigeon Bay, and the positition is a .ericu 3 one, especially for dairy farmers. In one case a farmer is already short of feed for his dairy herd, and he has no less than 40 more cows to come, into milk. The worst part of the situation j is lhe fact, that, .unless the milking c*>wsi have more feed in the next few weeks, they | will never come back into good profit even if the feed becomes very plentiful later. As showing the severity of tbe drought, the dam on Mr E Hay's property at the point has gone dry. This has not been dry for the last 30 years, except one autumn after a \ety fry summer.
Tho' distrust may submit each new claim to riifpute. Unanimity ever prevails, Where years of integrity build the repute Of a medicine that always ay lis. Such decisions are rare, and the seopti.B beware Lest vile frauds should their favour allure ; For they know tbe sad dearth in such treasures of worth As Woods 1 Great Peppermint Cure.
