THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
THE TRUTH ABOUT COWS. Some time ago a schoolmaster in a country school asked his pupils to write an essay on cows. Here is the "effort"- of a farmer's son: - The cow is a no-bull and kine-heart od creature. The man who looks after cows is called a cowherd, but lie is no cow ard who looks after cows. Cowes has a regatta every year; yet Uie cow is not a nautical animal. It is not true that she steers with her udders. It is reported that the cow sat at the head of the table in the Ark (so say llie ark-cow-olosists), because she was the only anirnpl that could calve. The cow is a. °ood mother, and will look calf-ter h'.*r naif. Cows rareiy ride in carriages, but a fine calf haa frequently been seen de scending ni a tramcar. Cows exist by means of the oxygen in tut atmosphere (1 got this from a professor at OsTord). l.Jy the cow is the milk made. 1 know this because I have often seon the milkmaid by the cow. The cow has been introduced into song. There is an oid song called "The Soldier'...

HOME NOTES. For Busy Housewives. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
HOME NOTES. Busy Housewives. Castor-oil will remove warts, even obstinate ones, if it be well applied and ul frequently as possible. Beetles can be exterminated from any room ii the place they infest is sprinkled: jvitli ground borax mixed with cornVnon brown sugar. When the flesh is bruised it should be bathed freely anc! at once with very ho water. This v.ill prevent conges tien and the ugly discoloration. To keep the water fresh and sweet in vases of cut flow era, add to it a small bit of sugar. This is successful even in the case of such blooms as wallflowers. Milk is very apt to burn and dam age the .saucepan when put on to boil. Tills may be prevented by rinsing out th saucepan with cold water before putting in the milk. When polishing knives it is a good plan to iold the board to the fire a few minutes before beginning, as knives obtain a greater brilliancy on a warm board than on a cold one. Eggs covered with boiling water and allowed to stand for five minutes are more nouri...

STRANGE CAUSES FOR DIVORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
STRANGE CAUSES FOR DIVORCE. + Some remarkable figures relating ti divorcc in America were issued no:r.( time ago, when it was stated that in the last twenty years nearly 1,000,001. .divorces had been granted in that country. A3 a matter of fact, there ore more divorces in the United State? each year than in ail the rest of the world put together. To people in this co ntry, .. no doubt, the figure;! are somewhat startling ; but when the number offgrounds on which divorces can be obtained in America are con sidered, this record in the breaking of the marriage tie does not appear eo extraordinary. STRANGE CAUSES. Bach State has its own divorce laws. In Kentucky, for instance, it is possible for a woman to divorcc lier husband if he habitually indulges in violent and ungovernable temper, while in Maine and North Dakota divorce is granted for intoxication from the use of opium, cocaine, chloral, and other narcotics. A peculiar cause is that which existg in Massachusetts and New Hampshire...

A FRIEND OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
FRIEND OF MAN. Many travellers have brought back from South Africa astonishing stories of the intelligence and cunning of the little honey-bird, which guides men faithfully to the nests of the wild bees. Some of them are a little hard to believe, but the united testimony of so raanv competent observers makfs it certain that in essentials the reports are true. ..An interesting account ot the bird is given by a correspondent of "Forest and Stream"- : "A hunter or traveller at times will be astonished by the antics of this ! intelligent little bird, which alights on the twig ol' a tree an chirps incessant ly with a shrill note. If you move to | wards it the noisy little creature will j make a slow Might to a tree near and continues its chirping; follow it again i and the same performance is gom; through.

Obvious. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
Obvious. Mr. Tom Mann, whose imprisonment is still beinj; warmly discussed, told a Coventry nudionce thai he was an agitator. Thorn was an obviousness about the remark that recalls Mr. ZanRwill's story of the hunchback on hoard a steamer who became very friendly with n stranger with very pronounced features. The latter, in a burst of conlidence, whispered: "J am a Jew." "Confidence for confidence," replied the Hrst man-"I am a hunchback!' Few ministers were better loved by their flock than Bishop Keese, of Sa vannah. It is told of liim that when he was rector of a parish he saw one of his parishioners talking very emphati cally to his son. Dr. Reese called out: "Halloa, Tom! What are you go ing to do with that boy ot yours?" The old man advanced to the door and replied: "What am I going to do with him? Well, I will tell you. doctor. .

A NEW ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
A NEW ANAESTHETIC. There has recently been discovered a new anaesthetic, which prevents pain after an operation. It consists o£ a solution of quinine and urea hy drochloride, and before the surgeon begins to operate it is injected .around the affected region. The discoverer, says that after the patient has recov ered from the effects of the general anaesthetic the Golution gives entire freedom from pain, and that it pro motes rapid healing. He believes that it -will prove valuable in accident cases, since it -will stop tlie pain in crushed and fractured limbs, and will frequently avert ifatal shocks. Injec tion of the new compound is not fol lowed by intense pain, such as the ad ministration of cocaine often causes. If, after thorough tests, the new an aesthetic proves to be effective and safe, it will be of great benefit to mapkind. Everything comes to him who wa^ts, but hustle well while you are wait ing. Next to getting the man si e wants, a woman enjoys getting the man some otb^...
OVER-FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 15 January 1914
OVEP.-FEEDING. "Over-feeding Is the thing rrom which civilisation suffers to-day," says Professor Hereward Carrington. "I consider it is far more important than drink, because it affects a far greater number of persons, both young and old, men, women and children. The surplus of food in the stomach, parti cularly if it be of an Irritating and sti mulating quality, sets up a constant Irritation of that organ, which is tem porarily allayed l>y the greater stimu lant, alcohol. After reviewing all the evidence at my disposal, a highly im portant deduction may be drawn, an extremely significant conclusion reach ed, which affects tho welfare of the whole human race. We have at last & scientific basis for calculating what the average intake of food should be by those in health and who wish to remain in health. Twelve ounces of nutriment daily is all that the body needs in order to preserve ita weight and to replaco whatever tissue has been lost as the result of the day's muscula...

RENDERING HONEYCOMB INTO WAX. Do not leave old combs, plecos of comb, and wax cappings about, as they are almost sure to entice the wax moth, and if that is the caes, wax, which means honey, Is soon wasted.

Be sure to use soft or distilled water when boiling combs, or the lime found in hard water will spoil a lot of wax.

The Optimist. Charles the First, with stately walk, made the Journey to the block. As hi- paci'il the street along, silence fell upon the throng: from that throng there hurst a sigh, for a king was come to die! Charles upon the scaffold stood, in his veins no craven blood; calm, serene, he viewed the crowd, while the headsman said, aloud: - "Cheer up..Charlie! Smile and sing! Death's a most delightful thing! J will cure your hacking cough when I chop your headpiece off! Headache, toothache-they're a bore. You will nevor have them more! Cheer up, Charlie, dance and yell! Here's the axe. and all is well! "I, though but a humble dub, repre sent. the Sunshine Club, and our motto is worth while: 'Do not worry-sing and smile!' "Therefore let us both be gay, as we do our stunt to-day: 1 to swing* the shining axe, you to take a few swift whacks. "Lumpty-doodle, lumpty-ding; do ot worry, smile and sing!" -Walt Mason.
