Checked. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
Checked. He; had plastered his touched-up hair down over his bald spot, and he had assumed a confident smile. His shoes were sliined, and so was his nose. And then he called on the young lady.

"1 allow all of papa's eld erly friends to call me Gertrude. The oldest of them even call me Gert. You may say 'Gert,' if you wish. What wits it you wanted to ialk about?" He.coughed again, and then talked about how the days were drawing in now.

"And where are the Jews?" "They have crossed over." "And the Egyptians?" "Will be here directly. That's the sort of painting I like: simple, sugges tive and unpretentious."

TH l£ TEST. STORY OF A WOMAN'S AWAKENING. .By Constance Enne. Oranleigh, on his side oC the break fast table, looked up wim a sudden exclamation of dismay from the letter he was reading-a big, official-looking document. "Little woman," lie said, regret fully, watching his wife's face, "I've got to leave you." She put down a morsel of toast and stared at him in pretty consternation. "Leave me?" she echoed. Then sho flashed all the armor of her dimpling smile at him. "Tired of me at last, John?" she asked lightly. He laid a strong-looking brown hand over one of hers as an answer to her query. "i'm afraid it's going to be more than the usual few days this time, AiiU.se," he said; "and I can't take you out with me-Cairo. It means a couple of months, 1 expect. The Chief"-he turned to the big, import ant-looking sheet again, headed Down-" ing-strcet-"The Chief says I'm to hold myself in readiness to start to day, if necessary."

Out of the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
Out of the Difficulty. A characteristic story of Dr. Parker was told the other day by a clergy man, who had it from an old minister who was much interested in Joseph Parker's early work as a local preacher. One Saturday he met Par ker, and asked him whether lie had an engagement for Sunday. "Yes," was the reply, and Parker went on to specify the place. "Are your sermons ready, Joseph?" asked the minister. "I have the morning sermon," was the reply, "but I am not sure about the evening." "Well, Joseph, what is your text for the morning, and how do you treat it?" Parker went over his text and the outline of his sermon. "But, Joseph," said the minister, "that is very clever, but it is "not the real meaning of the text. If you will look at the commentaries you will see that you are wrong." Parker thanked him and went his way. On the Monday the minister again met liis friend. "Well, Joseph, how did you get on yesterday?" "Very well," was the reply. "How did you manage?" "Well," he said, ...
WINDMILL WIRELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
WINDMILL WIRELESS. Holland is so flat that the wind mills with which it is studded are landmarks that can be seen for miles. So for centuries the windmill arms have been used as convenient signals. Births, deaths and marriages are often announced by this method in stead of by newspaper. The whole neighborhood knows that there lias been a birth in the miller's family if the arms are seen in the po sition of a narow capital X, and with the two upper sails unfurled. If the miller is being married, the arms form a broader X, with all the sails unfurled. A death in the miller's family is announced by the wheel being turned till the arms form an upright cross, with all the sails unfurled. When this signal is shown all the other mills of the region show their sympathy by following suit. The code of windmill "wireless" is quite a lengthy one. The doctor can be called, an appointment postponed, and the message read miles away.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Lime powder well sprinkled where cockroaches abound will drive them away. If bacon is soaked in water for a lew minutes before frying it will pre vent the fat from running. When starching holland pinafores, put a little strong tea into the starch. This keeps the garments a good col or. When boiling fowls or fish, add to the water in which they are boiled the juice of half a lemon. This will make them beautifully white. If moths are in a carpet, spread a damp towel over the part and iron it dry with a hot iron. The heat and steam will kill the worms and eggs. "When washing chamois leathers add a little ammonia to the water. This cleans them beautifully, and helps to make them soft and pliable. When making a roly-poly pud_ding, after spreading the paste jvith jam sprinkle a layer of fine breadcrumbs before rolling and tying up. This pre vents the jam from boiling out. Old nail holes in wood may be filled up by mixing sawdust with glue till it is the consistency of st...

The incident occurred at Poughkeepsie, and the subject was a boy, aged fourteen years, named Ste phen Klanatsky. An artery in Klanatsky's wrist was cut with a rope while at play.

MARRIAGE AND IMPRISONMENT [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
MARRIAGE AND IMPRISONMENT European divorce reformers have often insisted that the imprisonment for life of a husband or wife should entitle the other party to re-marry. The Brooklyn Supreme Court has re cently decided that the wife of a man imprisoned on an "indeterminate sen tence"-in this instance for not less than twenty years-may re-marry, as the man is "civilly dead." Moreover, the judge declared that her re-mar riage did not require to be prefaced either by a divorce or the annulment of her previous union, while he also decided that even the husband's par don would not restore his marital rights.
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone who lias watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist, M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The ant, he says, in its outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at the same angle, and walks in the opposits di rection. The body of the ant would, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding its way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The case is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. . On leaving the nest it places itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and 110 matter what side tracks it may ...
THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. John J. Armstrong. .Tolm Chumlcy lowered his sixpenny thriller as the tired-looking woman en tered his sitting-room, and regarded her with a smile on his broad red face. Seated in a remarkably easy chair, with slippers and his oldest jacket on, pipe well going, and a glass o£ what he termed "comfort" to his hand, John, on this Christmas Eve, would have admitted that he was doing very well. He was getting to the age when material comforts are appreciated. "Well, most excellent, Mrs. Moggs!" he said, cheerily. "Quite ready for Christmas?" "Christmas don't mean much to me these times," returned the thin-faced landlady. "Things wus diff'rent when he wus alive. Now, with my lad in India, it'll be quiet enough. I got an invite this mornin' from my sister Pern, in I'larstow but I'm sendin' her a postcard." "Why not go and have a romp?" suggested John. "And my best gentleman left liere on his own!" "Nonsense!" protested John, with his jolly laugh. "As if I'...
The Error Was Correct. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
The Error Was Correct. Editor: I regret very much, Mr Roarer, that my paper referred to your starring tour as a "starving"' one. Actor: Dont mention it. Your statement was absolutely correct. "Do you keep stationery here?" asked a young woman of a salesman in a general shop. "Not much," repled the young man rubbing his hands together. "The old man's' so stingy with his coal we have to bustle about to keep warm." An open-air orator once received this poser. "I loll you, gentlemen," he exclaim ed-"and the experience of a lifetime confirms my statement-that if you want a tiling well done you must do it yourself!" "Mow about getting your hair cut?" asked a man in the crowd. In San Francisco, a fow days ago, a telephone courtship of only an hour or so led to a marriage. Just a rr s up, ring off, and then a ring on. The young man who recently mar ried an American millionaire's daugh ter says he is passionately fond of flowers. Especially the mari-gol&lt;l.
A Horrified Dandy. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
A Horrified Dandy. A dandy, who was seated on the balcony of an hotel among a large company was exquitely dressed, and very highly perfumed with musk, which is very disagreeable to some persons. A plain farmer, happening to pass near him, commenced sniffing suspiciously, and, looking around him for the cause of the musky effluvia, he soon smelt out the dandy, and thus addressed him: "I say, mister, I can tell ye wliat'll take that smell out of yer clothes; just bury 'em for a week under ground. My uncle ran agin a skunk once, and " But before the sentence was finish ed the enraged dandy sped from the crowd to escape the shouts of laugh ter, while the innocent farmer, who only meant to do him a kindness, was wondering what caused his sudden de parture. "According to this paper," observed Mr. Goodwin, "a man has lived a year on beer alone." "Well, that's as it should be," ob served Mrs. Goodwill. "Any man who lives on beer ought to ibe compelled to live alone,"
No Wonder Joe Went. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
Wonder Joe Went. An excited middle-aged lady bounced into a suburban police-station and ac costed the inspector on duty: . Where's my Joe?" she demanded. "Beg pardon, madam-dog, I pre sume?" said the officer. "Don't you dare to presume nothing of the kind," snapped the lady. "Dog, indeed! No, sir, husband-my hus band. lie's missing, disappeared, de camped " "You don't say so?" "But I'll have you to understand that I do say so, young man. How dare you sit there and flatly contradict a ratepayer?-leastways the lawful wife of one. I'll report you, sir. Do you hear that? I'll report you! Where's my husband?" "My dear madam " "How dare you call me your dear madam? Do you think that I came here to bo insulted? I tell you ray husband has decamped, and you sit there like a dummy? What do you think of that?" "Well, madam," responded the police inspector. "I haven't the pleasure of your husband's acquaintance, but I should say he is a very wise man. Constable, show this lady out!"
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
FLEAS AND FLIES HAVE THEIR PARASITES. The latest discovery announced in the Paris Academy of Sciences is that of the parasite of the ilea, which, it is claimed, is the chief agent in the spread of the plague and other dis eases transmitted by this insect. Pulex irritans, as the flea is called in scientific writing, is the victim of the leishmanioses, which live in the flea's digestive tubing, and it is this parasite of our parasite which really transmits the plague and other infec tions, and not the much-abused flea Himself, who is only indirectly re sponsible, being compelled to carry this parasite once it finds lodgment in his anatomy. The flea looks small enough to our eye, and he is so lively that no one ever thought that any other parasite could catch him, but it seems that not only do the leishmanioses catch liim, but they also catch the plague, or yel low fever, and are the most important carriers of the germs. This discovery has much to suggest to our investigators, for they...
AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 April 1914
( AN ESSAY ON HEALTH. What Not to Do to Keep Well. Man drinks .whisky, and that clogs' the valves; he drinks beer, and that clogs the wheels; he swallows lem onade, ginger-ale, butermilk, tea, cof fee and cocoa, and then wonders why the boilers, do not burn. If yon should take an ox and put him through a like performance he would be dead in a month. The sim plest and plainest laws of health are outraged every day by the average man. Did Adam smoke? Did Eve wear a corset? Did Solumon chew tobac co? Did Ruth chew chocolates! Did :.he children o£ Israel make for a beer s^rden after crossing the Red Sea? Did Rebecca chew bonbons and ice cream and call for soda-water? Adam was the first man, and was made perfect from head to heel. How long could he remain so afier eating plum-pudding before going to bed? Suppose he had slept in a bedroom five by seven, with the windows closed down, the doors shut, and two dogs under the bed! Suppose Eve had been laced up in a corset, worn tight shoos and...
