Knew Him Well. It.was a, contested will case, and one of the witnesses, in the course ' of giving evidence, described the tes tator minutely. "Now, sir," said counsel for the de-. fence, "1 suppose we may take it,; from the flattering description you have given of the testator, his good:, points, and his personal appearanco generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed the witness. "He was no acquaintance 0f mine I" "Indeed! Well, then, you must have'observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued, counsel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. "Now, now, don't trifle with . the Court, please! How, I ask you, could' you, in the name of goodness, de-, scribe him so minutely if you never saw him or never knew him?" "Well," replied the witness, and the, smile which overspread his features extended to the faces of those in court, "you see, I married his widow."

CRUSHING REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 January 1914

CRUSHING REBUKE. In the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in the trains or on the station buildings. ' One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conceit and pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing the platform with a cigar in. his mouth. He at once accosted the offender and requested him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no notice of this command, but con tinued to walk, emitting a silvery cloud. The station-master asked him to stop smoking more peremptorily than before; but still the. owner of the Havana maintained a provoking dis regard. A. third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The stranger took no more heed than before, so at last the official, completely losing his temper, pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away., I This violent act produced no more...

TAXING BACHELORS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 January 1914

TAXING BACHELORS. In Memphis, Tenn., bachelors are taxed to maintain a summer house for sick babies and their mothers. The amount of the tax is determined by the "income, eligibility, and general attractiveness of said bachelor, due deductions being made for overweight, baldness, loss of one eye, and general disposition." The usual tax assessed is five dollars, which is collected in the following manner. The law provides that "no unmarried male arrived at the age of twenty-one years shall be allowed on the streets of Memphis af ter 9 o'clock p.m., or to court, visit, or accompany an unmarried woman to any place of amusement," unless he has paid the tax. He must present a bachelor's licence on demand of any* unmarried woman, married man, or police officer. If he can't or wont, he is liable to a fine of twenty-five to fifty dollars. A number resisted payment and were.brought before the police magistrate and^ fined double the amount of the fax. Now everybody is paying cheerfully. Life'...

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 January 1914

A WEIRD PROFESSION. - Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding -weird notes on their pipeB, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed j-o his grave Katch Sarak, a man of big renown in .his business, who died in . terrible agony as the result of a cobra bite received while practising his profes sion in the ^neighborhood of Garden Reach, India." "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by. the people amongst whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles. His services were Bought recently by a neighbor who had missed many fowls from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in se curing it. , Instead of dispatching the snake ati once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract its fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, ...

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for ,bacon have been necessary in' recent ; years to meet the1) demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being: a tasty, mild-flavor ed; somewhat . lean bacon, which is finely., streaked with fat and of firm texture. . . it is occasionally. found' in dealing with carcases' for 'either pork or ba con. that there exists an-abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and' possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro ! duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to "the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing ~ winter. Low temperatures.. exert a change! upon the nature of the body fat. Animals ' exposed ...

CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 January 1914

CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manger to turn, out a first-grade butter lie requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should be thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be provided with good' drainage, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk Bhould be separated I as soon as possible, and while the] animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed , with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the m...
