POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are aaked. It is said by some to be an "extra gilt," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting:— "Is your client pleading Insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from—the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once,sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also t'.u dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members ot the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy Inspir at...

CRETA HUNGERFORD'S SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
CRETA HUNGERFORD'S ) SACRIFICE. ! By Mildred Relphe. I£ ever a girl's hair could be de scribed as her crowning glory, it was so in the case of Greta Hungerforil. In color it was the rarest and mos' exquisite shade of red-gold immortal ised by Titian, and so luxuriant that when unbound it veiled her tall, slender figure in a mantle of waves and ripples and curls down to her very knees, far finer and more be coming than Lesbia's. It waved oif from her broad, low forehead it heavy, shining masses, and was gath ered into a great silken mass at the back of her graceful little head, the tniclc coils wound in and about until it covered it from the crown to the nape of the slender neck. This perfect June afternoon the brilliant sunbeams stole warmly through the open window of the cosy sitting-room, and burnished into 'i golden glory Greta's magnificent tresses as she stood before her young sister, Madge, engaged in animated discussion. "That white brocade, with just a touch of color in your...

MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLCI I By P. Beaufoy. Harold Ingram was not very popu lar at the office in Redfriars-street, E.C. He was quite au excellent young fellow, but he had a certain shyness und reserve which the other men mis took for what is called "stand-oflish ness." In the E.C. district) as in other regions, young men are apt to be su perficial, and the office staff at 27 Red friars-street, was no exception to the rule. They called him "Hamlet," because he was addicted to the reading of Shakespeare In his luncheon-hour, and also because he possessed a certain melancholy aspect which the name suited. It muBt be said for Ingram that he 'bore the chaff of his associ ates with perfect good humor, and did not seem to mind much. "Have you heard the latest about Hamlet?" said young Charlie Pargi ter to his chum Harris, on a certain afternoon in early spring, as they eat over their dominoes in a city cafe. "It is rather funny." "Not been seen at a music-hall, has he:' laughed the other. "If ...

SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 4 July 1914
SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds (lo like the warm days after rain. Hit 'em a clip the minute they , stick up their .heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion. tor stock to break though. A staple or a post in time saves temper. it is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges o£ his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the coal. . The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in' the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by ...
PUTTING BABY TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
PUTTING BABY TO BED. It is not desirable to lay a baby on its back when sleep is wished for. Either ono side or the other is best, and, it possible, it is well to accustom it first to one side and then to tho other, as this obviates falling into the habit of being able to sleep only on one side. But a child who is wido awalce and of a happy disposition, so that it lies cooing to itself and watch ing the mysteries of its own ten fin gers, is all the better for being laid on its back, as the spine is thereby kept straight and unstrained, and growth goes on apace, just as it does when a growing boy or girl is compel led, from accident, to spend a few weeks in a recumbent position, and finds when allowed to get up that none 3f hla or her clothes are long enough.
A BEAUTY SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
A BEAUTY SECRET. The beauty ol freshness, though not of feature, may he secured by any healthy woman, and it is certain ly worth striving for. To secure a nice, clear complexion, bathe night and morning, using warm water and a good soap, which must bo thoroughly rinsed oIt before drying. Eat in moderation, avoiding all indi gestible foods, strong tea, coffee and alcohol. Keep as cheery and amiablo as possible, for nothing causes uglier lines in tho face than depression and ill-temper. When washing the hands, rub them over with a bit of lemon, for the juice has a cleansing and softening effect on the skin. Lemon-juice, diluted with an equal quantity of water, is some times used to remove freckles, but for many people this remedy would bo to drastic.
