Sensible Reason. While a village blacksmith toiled manfully over an old farmer's plough share the owner of the share recount ed at some length the wonderful suc cess he hadad hd with three litters of pigs he had marketed that day. "Them pigs was less than eight months old," the farmer said. "aud they bought me twice as much as they would have done a few years ago. I tell you tile farmer is having his har vest now!" The smith, having finished sharp ening the share, handed it to his cus tomer. From a well-worn purse the farmer took out the usual price for the job and dropped it into the smith's i hand. 'You'll have to give more," said the smith, still holding the money in hiL outstretched palm. "I charge double now for sharpenizig that size plough share." "Why, how now?" the farmer ex claimed, testily. "That's an outrage! Why have you raised the price on me?" "To buy some of that high-priced pork you were tellin' me about!" v;wa the smith's calm reply.

The Man Behind the Counter. A TRANSFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
The Man Behind the Counter. A TRANSFORMATION. If you dealt at Kirk's, the draper's, in the days before the war You'd have met a nice young fellow at the counter by the door. Selling ribbons and such trifles-even penny reels of cotton. He was such a nice young fellow you could scarcely have forgotten. And the acme of politeness, ladylike in voice and manner; And his hands, you might have no ticed, simply made for the piano. He was such a nice young fellow, as he tied the things together: Well, you didn't mind the waiting, as he talked about the weather. Then 'twas "Thank you" and "Good morning," "Afternoon," or else "Good-night" "You will find the bargain counter on the third door to the right." He was such a nice young fellow, ladylike in voice and manner, And his hands, you might have no ticed, simply made for the piano. But the war has brought its changes; when I called at Kirk's again There were not the same old faces, for the country called for men Called for men to fight in tre...

PARCELS FROM GERMANY. Falling Off in Fare and Number. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
PARCELS FROM GERMANY. Falling Off in Fare and Number. From statistics recently published in France, the public may gather in direct, but none the less valuable, evidence as to the real condition of Germany. The figures in question re late to the parcels sent from Ger many to prisoners at Rennes. In 1915 their number was from 1000 to 1200 per week; in 1916 it had sunk to an average of from between 100 to 125. MIore striking still is the change in the nature of their contents. Two years ago the Germans sent luxuries and dainties of all kinds and clothes of the best quality; last year there was nothing in. them except lard "of very inferior quality" and old and much-mended clothes. The consign ments of cigars and tobacco, which had been very large in 1915, were very small last year. Woman may be a delusion and a snare; but man was always prone to hug a delusion.
