A Good Boarder. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

A Good Boarder. In the soft i firelight the boarding house sitting-room looked almost cosy and attractive. The warmth and, comfort thawed the heart of the old est lodger. In an expansive moment he turned towards the landlady, who was his only companion in the room, and, clasping her hands fondly, murmur ed: "Will you be my wife?" The woman did not start or blush. No maidenly coyness shone from her clear, cold eyes. "No, sir," she replied with calm deliberation. "I'm SOITV, but I can not marry you. You've been here four years, and are much too good a boarder to be put on the free list."

THE ISLE OF SERPENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

1 j THE ISLE OF SERPENTS. Less than thirty miles east of Su | lina, the only important Black Sea port remaining in the possession of Rumania since Field-Marshal von Mackensen captured Constanza, is the tiny Island of Serpents, around which cling many fantastic legends i of fascinating interest, as well as sev I eral historical episodes which at one I time threatened to become of inter i national moment, says a war geo [ graphy bulletin issued by the Xa J tional Geographic Society. ] Unlike the monotonous reaches of-; . reed-covered marshland which stretch' for fifty miles along the Rumanian and Russian shores to the north and south of the Sulina mouth of the Dan ube, and seldom attaining an eleva tion of more than two feet above the level of the Black Sea, the Island of Serpents, or Fido-nisi, thrusts its pre cipitous cliffs above the water .to heights ranging from fifty to one hun dred feet.

SOLDIER SCARECROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

SOLDIER SCARECROWS. According to reports received in tills country, orders have been issued j in G«rm«tny compelling the removal ( el any old clothing from scarecrows in the fields. The reason why the issue .f such an extraordinary order has; keen considered necessary is that pri-, Boners of war who succeeded in get-1 ting away from their guards have ex-' changed clothes with the dummy fig ures, and having successfully disposed : .f clothes In which they could not pos-1 slbly hope to get far, they have in j many cases succeeded in reaching the j frontier unsuspected. I The dodge is not, of course, a new] .ne. Over a hundred years ago two French officers, confined as prisoners .f war on Dartmoor, escaped to the coast in scarcecrows' rags which they found In a farmer's cornfields, and eventually reached France In a smug gling sloop. | In November, 1S97, again, a prisoner; .who escaped from Shrewsbury Gaol annexed the clothes from two scare-; crows dressed up in feminine attire in ! an...

THE RIGHT WAY TO DARN. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

THE RIGHT WAY TO DARN. Darning stockings is monotonous work, but It is well worth while. Host people make the mistake o£ trying to spare their labor by. making the darns too small and drawing the hole too tight. Drawing up the fabric in this way Increase the chance of a new hole forming the next time they are worn. Again, thin places are neglect ed, and the result is a quickly formed j hole. It is best to darn stockings on the wrong side. The threads are more i easily caught up by the needle on this I side, and the darn is less conspicuous j when the stocking is worn. The ob jection is sometimes raised that a darn on the wrong sfde is uncomfort able in wear. That is never the case when the darn is not drawn too tight. Sometimes loops are left to allow for shrinkage of the darning thread, and the darn then really is uncomfortable. The most sensible plan is to leave the loops at the ends of the rows of darn ing. and to cut them off near the end of the rows. Thus, even when freshly dar...

POTATO BLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

POTATO BLIGHT. The best method of dealing with Irish blight in potatoes is to spray systematically with either Bordeaux or tlie Burgundy mixtures. The for mer is made by dissolving Gib. of blue stone in 20-gallons of water in one tub, and slacking 'lib. of quicklime in another tub, and adding sufficient water to make 20 gallons of milk of lime. The two are then mixed to gether in a third wooden tub, the re sult being 40 gallons of Bordeaux mixture. Burgundy mixture is made by dis solving Sib. bluestone in 3a gallons water in a wooden tub, and l'Olb. of washing soda in five gallons water in a second vessel. Th.o washing soda solution Is then poured slowly into the bluestone solution and stir red, the result being 40 gallons of Burgundy mixture. We never learn anything new by hearing ourselves talk.

AN OLD GAME. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 April 1917

AN OLD GAME. Bllncl man's buff was played long ago by tho young men of Greece, but they called it "brazen fly." . The peo ple of Old England named It "Hood man Blind," probably because the players wore headdresses. resembling hoods, and the blind man turned his over his face, while the others used their hoods to strike him. Some called it "Harry Racket" and "hood wink." France has other blindfold games, among which is "Colin Maillard." Jean Collin was a brave warrior who fought iu a battle after both of his eyes were put out, and so the game gets its name from him. He was sur named "Maillard," which means "Mallet-wielder." The eGrmans call their blindfold game "Blind Cow" and "Mouse in the Dark." Italians call it "Blind Fly," while Norwegians give it the name of "Blind Thief" and "The Pole." We add the "Buff" because of the light blows usually given to the blind man by the other players.
