Health in the Home. WHEN TO EAT FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

Health in the Home. WHEN TO EAT FRUIT. To obtain tho most benefit from tho succulent fruits they should be calen at tho end of tho chief meal. Bananas aro an exception, and may ho eaten with any meal. They aro very acceptablo cut in thin slices and oaten willi bread »nd butter. Stew- ed fruits often lia-vo thoir virtues wasted through being eaton at the wrong time. Six or eight stewed prunes half an hour before break- fast are beneficial, so aro stewed figs or stowed apples, oaten before .breakfast. Pooled oranges cut into thin slices so that thc juico is set free, with castor sugar strewn over tho slices, aro not unlike pine- apple, and form a highly efficacious aid to digestion. Grapes should never bo eaten after the chief meal of tho day. Taken when tho stom- ach ia comparatively empty, they aro a specially harmful fruit.

AN INDIAN'S COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

AN INDIAN'S COURAGE. The most ferocious and venomous rcplile in Mexico, writes Mr. H. H. Harper in his account of "A Jour- ney in Soúth-Iíaslern Mexico," is the four-nosed snake. It usually measures from four to six feet in length, and from two to four inches in diameter, with sixteen great fangs, eight above and eight below. The most remarkable feat of hu- man courage that I ever witnessed was a battle between an Indian workman and one of these snakes. In company with a number of other workmen the Indian was chopping brush, and the snake sprang nt him from a clump" of brushes. .The In- dian struck at thc snake with, his machete, at the same time jumping aside. The snake, narrowly miss- ing his mark, lauded four or live feet beyond. Immediately forming a coil, he lunged at the Indian, catching his! bare leg just below tho knee, and fastening its fangs into the flesh like a dog. The Indian made a quick pass with his machete and severed the snake's body about four inches from thc head...

FRENCH AUTHORESS'S SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

FRENCH AUTHORESS'? SUPERSTITION. Mdme. Adam, the well known French authoress, is profoundly superstitutions, and she says that her beliefs are founded on experi- ence. The breaking of mirrors has always been associated with misfortune, but in order that the fatal presage may have all its worst consequences, the glass must break of itself, that is to say, without any one touching it. Those broken by accident arc less dangerous in their effects. "One day," says Mdme. Adam, "when I was staying at O if, a mir- ror broke in the left wing of the house, near the stables. The same week a darling little donkey, that I was very fond of, was crushed to death ; one of my horses, took in- flammation of the lungs through standing nt a friend's door too long in the snow, and died ; and another broke its leg and had to be killed. The affair of the second mirror was less tragic. One morning my hus- band broke a glass. He bad pro- mised to lend Gnmbetta that even- ing ,£°j,ooo, and t advised him to b...

"Sneeze-Wood." [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

"Sneoze-WoorJ." Tn Souih Africa is to bc found the "sncczc-wood" tree, which takes its name from thc fact that one cannot cut it with a saw without sneezing-. Even in planing the wood the same effect is sometimes produced. No insect or worm will touch it ; it is very bitter to the taste, and its speci- fic gravity is heavier than water. The color is light brown, the grain run- ing very close and hard, and it takes a good polish. For docks, piers, or jetties, it is a most useful limber, keeping sound a long while under wa- ter.

A Complete Story. (All Rights Reserved.) AN INTERRUPTED TOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

A Complete Story. (All Rights Rosorvod.) AN INTERRUPTED TOUR. BY SHIRLEY RAYNARD. Author of "The Ghost of tho West Wing," "A Wile's Tempta- tion," "The Opal Ring," "Wanted, a Companion," etc. "I don't cnre where we go," I said at last, bored by my sister Janet's persistency in fixing the whereabouts of our summer holi- day. "I nm perfectly content nt home with the'garden in all its glory, or I shall be quite content to go wherever you think best. Could anybody be more obliging?" "You know, Elsie, you are thc first to grumble if things do not turn out right," replied Jnnet, somewhat tartly. "But we really must settle the matter at once, as I want to make final arrangements about the house. What do you say to a tour through thc Dolomites? We have done Switzerland several times, Norway twice, and our own country ever since we were ten. Don't you think that would be a delightful change?"

Poetry of the Week. IF ANO PERHAPS. If everyone were wisc and sweet And everyone were jolly; If every heart with gladness beat, And none were melancholy; If none should grumble or complain, And nobody should labour In evil work, but each were fain To love and help his neighbour Oh, what a happy world 'twould be For you and me-for you and me I And if, perhaps, we both should try That glorious time to hurry; If you and I-just you and I-? Should laugh instead of worry; If we should grow-just you and I Kinder and sweeter hearted Perhaps in some near by-and-by That good time might get started. Then what a happy world 'twould bc For you and me-for you and me 1 -Emma C. Dowd.

RAIN IN THE FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

RAIN IN THE FACE. Nomenclature among the North American Indians is based on meth- ods peculiarly their own. So trivi- al a thing as a summer shower, ac- cording to Mr. James McLaughlin's "My friend, the Indian," gave to a chief of the Hunkpnpn Sioux a name that is rather prominent in thc annals of Indian warfare, Rain in-the-l"ace. When Rain-in-the-Irace was but a brown-skinned mile his mother set him up in the shade of a tree while she got ready the midday meal of her lord, thc father of Rain-in-the Kace. The boy baby was strapped to a hoard, his small body embedded in the fuzz of the cat tails, and wound about with the skin of a deer. Iircct and stiff, but comfortable enough, the boy lay, dodging his head that he might see past the hooped bough that was bent over his face so that j he might not be marred in bis looks if he should fall. As he looked at the sky and com- muned, after the fashion of Sioux babies, with the spirits of the other world, the thunder-bird settled in the lim...

Science in Play. (From Magical Experiments by ARTHUR GOOD.) THE EGG THAT WILL STAND UP. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

Science in Play. (From Magical ExverimeiiU bj À»THCB GOOD.) THE Edd THAT WILL STAND I UP. j Fix two forks firmly in a cork (¡is in the illustration) observing that they are of equal weight and at equal angles with the perpendicular; gently hollow out thc lower portion of the cork with a sharp penknife, so that it may fit with some exactness one of thc ends of the egg. Now poise the other end of thc egg care- fully on the edge of the neck of thc bottle ; sec that the egg is in the I vertical position, and after n few tentative shakes, not letting go of it at once, you can ascertain that the whole is in a state of equilibrium, an effect that is obtained, of course, by our thus placing the centre of grav- ity below the point of support. Kindliness is the best, of good manners. Progress begins with the minori- ty. lt is completed by appealing to the intelligence of the majority. In health there is liberty.

Random Readings. TEDDY'S FINEST LION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 10 June 1911

Random Readings.     TEDDY'S FINEST LION. According to Mr. Theodore Roo- sevelt's "African Game Trails: An Account of the African Wanderings of an American Hunter-Naturalist," the ex-President's first lion was a big-maned monarch which he bag- ged while hunting with Tarlton. Mr. Rosevelt hit him first, but only slightly, and the lion, at 200 yards, prepared to charge. Again I knelt and fired, but the mass of hair on the lion made me think he was nearer than he was, and I undershot, inflicting a flesh- wound that was neither crippling nor fatal. He was already grunt- ing savagely and tossing his tail erect, with his head held low, and at the shot the great sinewy beast came toward us with the speed of a greyhound. Tarlton then, very pro- pcrly fired, for lion-hunting is no child's play, and it is not good to run risks. Ordinarily it is a very mean thing to experience joy at a friend's miss, but this was not an ordinary case, and I felt keen de- light when th...

STARTLING THE STREET. Odd Fashions That Have Caused More Excitement Than the Harem Skirt. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 17 June 1911

STARTLING THE STREET. Odd Fashions That Have Caused I More Excitement Than the Harem Skirt. I Tile hissing and booing that have I accompanied tile first public appear ' ance of the "harem" skirt, as they did some time ago that of the "hob- ble," show how unwilling tho man In the street is to give a hearty welcome to anything startlingly new in dross. But the outcry over the "harem" skirt has been weak compared to that which greeted the introduction of the umbrella. It was a philosopher called Jonas Hauway, who startled Pall Mall one day by holding above his hoad what had never been seen in Eng- land before. It was much Hatter than the umbrella of to-day, about three times as big, and six times as heavy. lt folded so awkwardly that it could no more be tucked under the ann than a portmanteau. When the rain was over Hauway held It by a ring fasten- ed to the ferrule, dragging the handle in the dirt. Booing crowds followed tho bold pioneer in the streets. "Hain beau! Hain beau!" was the...
