PERMIT TO REMARRY. Because he lias lived "a uniformly good life" for at least five years, Mr. (Jliarles U. Pelgram, a millionaire silk manufacturer of Paterson, a town six teen miles from New York, is to be allowed to remarry. A divorce decree granted againht him in 1893 contained a ban on his remarriage.

Three well-known business men swore that Mr. Pelgram had fulfilled the conditions of the law, and the mil lionaire himself said that he had been following simple life rules for twenty years. He was married it nineteen.
Spiteful. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
Spiteful. "My husband considered a very long time before he proposed to me. He was very careful." "Ah, it's always those careful peo ple who get taken in!" Time was when there were 110 look ing-glasses. In those days men gre.v long beards and women wore th '-ir hair flowing. When the looking-glass came men shaved themselves to dis cover what they were like; :tnd thou it was that women began t;i worry whether their hats were on straight. There has never been a problem that lias caused such waste of time or so much distraction ua Ihig queat!on of .'lie straight hat. Some women like children, some like charities, and some like men.
Not So Green As He Looked. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
Not So Green As He Looked. A man with a wife who has her own ways about doing things is lucky enough to catch her now and then. "My dear," he said the other morn ing as he was dressing, "I think you were right when you told me last night that there were burglars in the house." "Why?" she asked nervously. "Because all the money that X had in my pockets when I went to bed is gone." "Well," she said, with an I-told-you so air, "it you had been brave and got up and shot the wretch you would have had your money this morn ing." "Possibly, my dear, possibly," he said. "But it I had done so I would have been a widower." She laughed softly then and gave half of it back to him.
EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. Have you ever wondered why the eyes in portraits painted in oils fol low you? There is something uncan ny about it. Years ago superstitious people were afraid to go into a pic ture gallery where portraits of an cestors were to be found. Now we know that the thing is simply an op tical illusion. To produce such an effect the eyes of the person represented in the por trait must be looking directly to the front, and not towards one side. In such circumstances the pupil of each i eye is necessarily in the middle there of, with as much "white" on one side as on the other. , Obviously, this relation does not vary at all with the position assumed by the observer. The latter may stand far over on either side of the picture, and yet, from his point of view, there is as much "white" on one side of each eye as on the other, and the pupil still is in the middle. Such being the ease, the painted image continues to look directly at him. In the palatial mansion of a well know...
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila was happy as girlcoull be, without, as she expressed it, a care in the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the I past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed-as' far as she could tell-to cease to exist._ Bellairs was kind to her, paying lier every possible attention, but lie never took her hand as of yore and pressed it an one of his, nor did lie look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to his wlie with the old dearly longed-for look in his eyes. Moreover, there was no doubt but that Peter Bellairs, ICC., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills a...
THINGS SCIENCE CAN'T EXPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
THINGS SCJENCE CAN'T EXPLAIN. How sunlight turns grapes into sugar. Why the sap of trees is not frozen in winter. Why is it that many microbes can be boiled and still live. How a bat can see to catch mos quitoes on a pitch dark night. By what sense a pigeon finds its way home from a great distance. How the pain of a cut is carried by the nerves from the finger tip to the brain. How seeds sown in the autumn le sist the frosts of winter and germin ate as soon as spring conies. How a chicken ten seconds aftev coming out o£ its egg knows how to balance itself on its feet, run about, and peck food. How is it that, if the earth is as old as we have every reason to believe, the radium iu it lias not yet given off all its energy, but seems to be dis charging junt as much as it ever gave. People who marry for fun have a rmpst perverted sense of humor.
GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. Those of us who have not been pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly periodicals. Sheila Danver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress-which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction-was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went off with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, want of eclat. The Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, ana, without a moment's hesitation, removed the brooch w...
THE PIGGERY. PROFIT POINTS IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
THE PIGGERY. PROFIT POINTS IN PIGS.. Although prices are highly import ant, they will not assure a profit (says Professor James Long) unless the pig breeder knows his work, and uses stock of the very best. Ho should secure large sows, with ears of slightly medium size, heads of me dium length-never short heads or ears-width across the forehead, a fine neck, long body, deep flanks, plenty of breadth across the loins, and chest, large hams, and plenty of milk. There is no more important feature in the sow than the last-nam ed. Pigs of this type, if large enough, will produce large litters which will weigh well, and that is all important. Deep flanks produce plen ty of streaked bacon; wide loins pro duce good joints, apart altogether from their influence on constitution and prolificacy. A good pig for ba con should not exceed 150 lbs. ' in weight, nor should it be too fat, the depth of fat on the back not exceed ing one and three-quarter inches. The meat, too, should be firm, but it wi...
HONEYMOON TRAMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
HONEYMOON TRAMPS. The average bride wlien she changes her orange blossoms and her resplendent wedding dress for the more prosaic travelling costume, does not usually have to prepare Tor such a journey as that undertaken by Mr. and Mrs. Grantham, Oi Alberta. After walking 7000 miles and being held up a dozen times, Norman Grant ham, of Calgary, who, with his bride, formerly Miss Mabel Ryan, of Minne apolis, started last spring on a honey moon tramp around the world, Is back in Calgary for a time. Mrs. Grantham's health broke down when the trampers reached Brindisi, on the Mediterranean, forcing the temporary abandonment of the trip. Mr. Grantham will resume the jour ney at once, as soon as his wife's health is restored. Mr. Grantham returns with a whole some respect for the ability of Eng lisii pedestrians. He trte'i to break the record of ten hours and two min utes from London to Dover-sixty eight miles; but the best he could do was eleven hours and twenty-one min utes.
THE VALUE OF THE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
THE VALUE OF THE PIG. "I do not know of a more powerful agent in transforming poor land into rich," states a writer in the "Agricul tural Gazette," "than the domestic pig. Give a man a few acres of poor land (not bad, but poor) and plenty of pigs, and I venture to say that there will be a more or less sudden conversion. The pig is in itself pro fitable, but the manure it leaves be hind is of even greater value to tlie feeder than its increase in weight. Pigs are the best kind of stock for a man who has a small tract of poor land, and there seems to be no limit to the improvement which may be effected by and tnrough their pres ence."
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." .\'o one has even told just why Those words such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper makes our cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that sort caress The love must aye be true; Or at that Tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm aroun'l. And whispers "Never mind."
WATCH FOR DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
WATCH FOR DISEASE. When stores, or even stud pigs, are brought to the farm they should be dipped or sprayed, as a matter of or dinary precaution against the intro duction of vermin or disease. As an additional precaution, a quarantine pen should be used, especially if epi demics are prevalent. Strange pigs should not be mixed with the herd until their new owner is himself satis fied that they are not bringing trou ble with them.
TELEGRAPH WIRES AS BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
TELEGRAPH WIRES BAROMETERS. A phenomenon with which most peo ple are familiar is the curious noise made by telegraph wires. It is ac cepted as ordinary, ,'iiid yet there has been hitherto no final explanation. Many and varied are the reasons giv en, but generally it is ascribed to the action of the wind, which is s.uppo3 ed to play upon the wires as upon the strings of a harp. This explanation, however, cannot be accepted, because the noise is of ten heard, and in many instances at its plainest, on perfectly calm days Another explanation frequently pro posed is that the "tunes" r.re caused by the effect of alternating cold and heat, which, by contracting or expand ing the wires, causes them to give out | a sound that is accordingly flat or sharp. This second theory, however, is also inadtnissable, because, in order to pro duce such differences of tone, a varia tion of temperature such as is never experienced would be necessary. What, then, is the real reason? A third theory, which s...
REAL EQUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
REAL EQUALITY. The wooing had progressed splen didly. It had even progressed to :i point where she had been won-that is, ostensibly won. I£ she proved to be a truthful girl, she would in time be his wife. If she were not truthful -well, no man wants a wife who is not truthful. That's the way some men console themselves when they fail to marry. But she seemed to be truthful, and as he drew her closer to him he whis pered: "And when we are married, deares*. we will have the happiest home in all the wide, wide world!" "Yes, George," she replied. "There can never be a harsh word in our home." "No, George." "And when X come home tifed and worn out with work at the office and the worries of business, you'll be kind to me?" "Y-e-s, George." , "I knew you would. You'll soothe me and put me in better humor?" "l'-e-s; but, I say, George!" "Yes, dearest." "Why shouldn't you do a little of this yourself?" "Why, darling " "Yes, that's all right. But to como right down to business, as papa says, ...
A Bulletless Revolver. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 21 May 1914
A Bulletless Revolver. ? A German inventor has perfected a revolver that shoots without bul lets and is intended to check ami render harmless the victim instead of maiming him or crippling him. It is designed for home protection wid'for use in instances where it is not desirable to take chances of killing a person. The rnrtridge used contains seve ral ingredients, which, when ex ploded, combine to form a vapour of a peculiar character. The gun itself differs very little in appear ance and mechanism from the ordi nary double-action revolver. It holds five cartridges. The action of the vapour may best be imagined by considering the po sition of the person, shot at. The appearance of the weapon, the re port and the (lore of the powder combine to convince the victim that lie has been shot at with an ordinary firearm. His eyes and niouih open in surprise," and the gaser, generated, by the combination 01" the chemicals envelop his head completely, penetrating his eyes and affecting his si...

The o!d far mer, after hearing the conductor shout out the name and seeing the people get up and walk out. turned to the conductor and said "1 say. guv'nor, when he it time for I to get out?
