Household- Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
Household Hints. Green blinds that have faded ma) be made to look almost like new by brushing them over with some lin seed oil. Keep the inside of your oven scrupulously clcan ; have the shelves sides, and door scraped dov-n and washed with hot soda and water at least oncc a week. A physician says that the applica tion of the oil of cinnamon, applied with . a straw or small brush, is thi very best remedy for bee stings. It will slightly blister, but will destroy the poison. People might easily protect them selves and their childr.cn against the bites of insects did they but follow this plan. Sponge the skin and the hair with weak. carbolic acid, and it will drive away the whole tribe. The secret of frying fish crisp and brown, without either egg or bread crumbs, is to dry it well, dredge both sides with plenty of flour, and plunge it into boiling fat. Be sure the fat is boiling, and plenty of it, as upon that depends the crispness and brov.nnsss of the fish. To keep lettuce fresh fr...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 7 May 1914
CHAPTER VII. Bellairs was essentially u mail of action. That very night he saw Ro bert Holman, one of the leading pri vate detectives in London, and placed in his hands the inquiry into the af tair of Goldstein and Sheila's pearls, assuring him that he, Bellairs, would pay the £2000 oil the day the pearls were brought back to liini uninjured; but lie was careful to caution Mr. llolman that an expert in precious stones must examine them in order to see that no exchanges had been made.

BUSINESS-LIKE WOMAN. (A claim is put forward in one of ilie dailies that girls are more alert i:i money matters than men.) Nona is what you call a bachelor- | girl. She has a little money, and enough sell'-confidence to float a bat tleship-or any other little trick that self-confidence conies in useful for. The other day I called on Nona with a pair of gloves she said she had won over some trivial dispute of ours. She was reading a paper with every appearance of satisfaction. "Hello!" she said, from the sofa, "you don't mean to say you've remem bered the gloves at last?" She put down the paper thoughtfully, "it's quite true," she added. "Yes," I said, "quite true. 1 stayed awake all night- remembering the beastly things." "No," said Nona, "I wasn't referring to that/' 1 bade her sit up and explain her self. "Well, you see," she said, "you men always say we're no use in money matters. And I'm glad to see it pub licly contradicted at last. Now take~ these gloves. How much did you pay ...
A HUGE PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 14 May 1914
HUGE PROFIT. j Sir James Yoxall tells, in his new book about collecting, another story of a collector's handsome profit 1 "A bookseller purchased for £200 I the MS. of one ot Dickens' best works. I For a long time that interesting manu I script had lain neglected. I am told that it had been left on the mantel piece of an empty' house formerly in habited by a person connected with Charles Dickens in business. The bookseller tried to sell it for £500, and failed; £400, and failed; £300, and failed. "A few years later, having to meet a sudden demand for cash, he parted with the MS. for the sum he gave for it, £200. The purchaser at that price kept the MS. for some years, un til one morning a bookseller, the agent of a now famous but at that time unknown collector of rarities, came to the owner of the MS. and of fered to buy it. "'My price is £2000,' said the owner. A cheque was written on the spot."
