TOM, THUMB, Lizzie Clarke, who lives at Pians-ij, -writes: —©ear Aunt Connie,—I will take for my sub ject the story of Tom Thumb. Once there was a ploughman and his wife who wished very ranch: to have a son, so the man went to Merfih, the enchanter, and asked him to let him have a child, even if it were no bigger than his thumb; so then Merlin told the man to go home, and he would find a very wee baby. So the Queen fairy named it Tom Thumb, and then she dressed him nicely in a spider's web, and Tom grew no bigger, and his parents were very fond of him. Tom was very mischievous, so one day while his mother was making a plum pudding Tom stood on the edge of the bowl with a lighted candle in his hand, so that his mother could see to makev it properly, and. while her back was turned, Tom fell into the bowl, and his mother, not missing him, stirred him up in the pudding, and put him and the pudding] into the pot, so when Tom felt the hot water he danced about, and the woman was nearly fr...

OUR SHORT STORIES. SPINK [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

By C. J, Dennis CALL RIGHTS RESERVED,] Marty Spink is an artist—a very good artist I have heard, though I am not in a position to judge such things, be ing myself too busy In the city to spare much time Cor the study of art, I say Spink is a good artist, because I have heard others say so—people who are judges of that sort of thing. Of his own Work Spink talks very little, though I believe he does take a pride in it. What he does talk about mostly—to me, anyhow—is business, and Spink knows about as much of business as does a cow that luvs never seen a milk bill. Be prides himself upon his business ability and commercial acumen, or, as he puts it himself, his "astuteness in getting inside these grasping commer cial rotters who are always trying: to take a man down." How, Spinks' "astuteness" amounts to paying eighteenpence for an article that an ordinary business man could get for a shilling. But he always congratulates himself on the fact that he did not pay two shillings; so that, ...

BERTHA'S EXPERIMENT I. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

BERTHA'S EXPERIMENT By MolJie E, Jamieson [A.LL RIGH^F RESERVED.] L Bertha, in the days which followed, used always to date things from that particular Christinas, And perhaps that was hardly strange, either. For when one has attained to the age of sedate^ 24, and has never even pos sessed a lLver, it is perhaps not to be wondered at that the eventful period which produced not merely one but a couple of so desirable a commodity should live for ever in the annals of one's heart. That was how Bertha felt about it, any way. Bertha quite frankly- admitted that if Great-Uncle George had never written that par ticular letter, certain strange and won derful happenings would certainly not have como to pass. Great-Uncle Geonre's letter arrived one snowy December mornings when Bertha, drawing on her thickest wool len gloves, was just about to start out to her daily tuition. Bertha, at that precise period of her life, was rather a charming little personage, with wavy auburn hair and the most n...

CROMWELL AN-D HIS WORKS Mafiey Handley, who lives at Chetwynd, writes:—Dear Aunt Connie,—I will take as my subject, ''Oliver Cromwell and His Works." Before the advent of Cromwell England had been ruled by a tyrannical king, Charles I. His rule resulted in the Civil War, for he twas of a despotic nature. He set aside the laws of England with im munity, and finally exhausted the people's patierce. Cromwell was of a religious dis position, and on account oi this the people of that, time called him a Puritan. Although so religious he had wrong ideas. He thought that his religion was the only right one. Having this idea he could not tolerate people who thought differently, and when he attained power he gave to them disadvantages in the way of obtaining situations. This caused unprincipled persons to pretend to be Puri tans, and this brought disgrace on the Puri tan army. When the people rose in rebellion Cromwell oiganised regiments of soldiers of his own pattern. Their battle cry was "...

She lightly slipped from, off! her stool, And to the bookcase crept; She just could reach the shelf where all The choicest books were kept. In each rare book she slowly drew A purple horse and calf, An elephant, a kangaroo, To make her daddy laugh. And so all morning long she toiled, Her fingers ached full sore; But still she drew, for Daddy's sake, In many volumes more. Then Daddy came! • A crosser man I think I ne'er have seen; And her reward—but let us draw Round that a kindly screen!

MARJORIE'S FIRST NIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

MAR J OKIE? S FIRST NIGHT It was Marjorie Dawson's first night at the big boarding school, and, as hundreds of other little girls had done before her, she cried without a break for the first two hours. When she felt "Quite dry inside" she screwed her wet handkerchief into a tiny ball and put it away with an air of de termination. "I wonder what Archie and Doug las, and Gerald and Tommy would think of me," she said sternly to her self. But the memory of her brothers only threatened to make the " dry feeling" inside go away, .so she called herself a donkey and tried to take an interest in her surroundings. Marjori© had been brought up with her four brothers, and there was nothing timid or shrinking about her, in spite of her outburst of feeling. So, when a tall, black-haired girl of 13 strolled by and condescended to notice her she was not nearly as pleased as she might have been. "Hallo, new kid! "What's your n^me and how old are you?" was the greeting of Sylvia Blake. "What's your n...

The$r steamed into warmer latitudes, and he rose early to get a whiff of fresh air each morning. Once he went on deck to find the Cuban "busily plying a mop, and asked kindl^ how the wound on his head progressed. The man eased a I bloodietl .bandage and replied surlily that it -.was no better. He splashed, ' water so unnecessarily about the inter rogator's ankles that Dick, retreated behind a stack of folding chairs. He was not long there when Bouchier's strident voice caused him to prick his ears. "Yah! You great booby! How'd you like the gale, eh? Didn't-1 scare you, just? If you scowl and mutter at me I'll bring another twice as bad, see if I don't. I could do it as easy as wrinking." The Cuban's rollin -• eye and livid face amused Paul.

LACTATION PERIOD COW'S BEST WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

IjACTATION . PERIOD COW'S BEST WEEK xt is ..pit en of much importance to Jknow at what time in a cow's lactation period she is liable to make her best record. Nearly all the associations of improved dairy breeds favor the animals making large milk or butter records. In some cases certain fixed standards are set, as, for example, in the American Jersey Cattle Club As sociation, where fourteen pounds of butter or over is required to admit animals, to what is known as the "test ed list." In looking over the herd re cords, it was found that a great vari ation existed as to the best week of lactation. This variation was not. only among certain cows, but also existed with the same cow from year to year. To get reliable data it was quite evi dent a large, number of records would be required to overcome the varying influence and find a fair average. Min nesota Experiment station was there fore called upon to co-operate with the Nebraska Station, and they were able to furnish 155 records. Th...
