THE COLD BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
THE COLD BATH. If you do not fee) warm after a cold b:.th you had better not take it, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness; cold water may wash off the superfi cial dirt, but it does not extract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating eifect, and unless we' get that Invig orating effect from it' we' had better seat the invigoration in -some other way. • ■ ' ' ' ■ Cold water applied suddenly drives tho blood from the1 Bkin by constrict ing the capillaries." 'It-also adminis ters a light shock to the nerves,•-■wtaicli bas an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the foody/ "The capillar ies being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart pressure is greater. The heart responds tothis resistance by greater effort; it beats more rapid ly and with stronger force. The blood surges through the'body more swift ly, and fordes its way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that has closed them ...

Both Done. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
Both Done. A married, couple were frequently in disagreement on the subject ol meals, each usually suggesting a.dish for tlie Sunday dinner which the oth er did not approve. One Saturday the man came home • from market witu a basket:'. "You needn't worry about to-mor row's dinner any more, Maria; I've got it.". "And.so have I, George! You were so undecided.". "Undecided! I told you what 1 wanted." "Well, X mean you didn't decide as I did. So I bought a goose." "Why, so have I! I told you I'd like a goose." "Well;, now we are agreed for once, anyhow." "Yes; and I. suppose we'll have cold goose' and stew for the next fort night!" ' They relapsed into their usual Bi lence. "Do; you want a few cloves in the apple sauce with your "goose?" the wife asked; on Sunday morning. "Your goose, you _ mean." "No,'I don't! It seemed so absurd to have two geese in the house, that I sent mine to Aunt Jane." " "What! Why, I sent mine to Uncle Joe!" • To straighten their hats is the first impulse of' f...
GIRLS' HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
GIRLS' HAIR. The cure of a girl's hair during her childhood has much to do with its later beauty. With the exception of an occasional clipping or singeing of the ends where a tendency to split is noticeable,' the 'growth of the hair should' not be interfered with. The old idea that it ought to be cut short in childhood is not now entertained, except in special cases. It is unwise to trust the daily comb ing of a little girl's hair entirely to the nurse,, certainly not without fre quent overlooking. 1: Hasty combing injures the hair by breaking it. It should be carefully brushed out, the hair being separated into strands if it shows a tendency to mat. If the comb; at the end of the operation, has gathered- a considerable amount of knots; and snarls and long hairs, the method has not oeen proper. It is possible to brush out a tangle of locks and scarcely lose a hair, but it takes care and patience. It is also unwise to wash the hair too often, as it-'makes it dry and brit tle. Profuse...

CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered—say, about five or sixj weeks old—they will need to be put' upon a different food regime, accord ing to the breed. Those that are^ short of leg and very feathery will' need plenty of rice, which, although it does not produce bone, does influ ence feather considerably, not alto gether because of its own nutritive qualities, so much as it does by its ac tion in keeping the blood cool, and, thus allowing the other foods given! to be assimilated with ease and com-' fort without the skin become dry and! irritated, and thus acting as a deter rent upon feather growth. If stimu-' lntive and nourishing foods are given,' clio blood becomes over-heated, and: the skin is apt to become dry and. harsh, and when this is the case the' feathers do not break nicely.
THE POULTRY YARD FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
the poultry yard. ,^'-p°0d f0r laying hens. ..lykiai-dian requires daily about uu to rour ouucou or fooa. nccord to size. A bird in a wild stutu ui^ur, on all kinds of food, many var ieties often in a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see a sickly wild bird. Poultry, if fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract some disease or other, cither directly from organs being -thrown' out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any thing that may be going. Rations for laying hens should be made from bran, pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal, crushed oats, chopped cabbage, chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other vegetables, fresli-cut green bone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc. Any four of these may bo combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat. About twelve I ounces per weight in the morning for' j ten laying fowls with about one pound to fifteen ounces of grain in the even in...
FEEDING FOR FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
FEEDING FOR FEATHER. Feeding poultry for feather is a very important matter, for on the oven and fairly quick growth o£ fea ther depends, in most instances, the quality of plumage, its color, and its marking. Feather growth makes a great strain 011 a young bird's strength, and it is at this period that novices have wondered at the appar ent stoppage in the growth of their pot specimens. Good diet of a rather more fatty quality is needed now, but care must 'be taken that the pigmen tary quality of the food is not injur ious to the color of the bird we are rearing. Thus maize must on no ac count be given to white fowls at this stage, and even red wheat is not with out its dangers. Good oats, with oc casional feeds of white peas and a little boiled linseed, the latter mixed with the soft food, are excellent. Tight feathered birds, such as game, might with advantage have a little pea-meal mixed with the soft food, and old dried peas are to be recom mended. Color feeding iB not satis fac...
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. | Open your bedroom windows wide, or sleep out on the verandah, and you wiiSe up in the morning feeling like a lijjtting-cock. You liavo had ventila tion. Open your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will iind you sniffling iilte an old nag with the.heaves. A draught is a thin stream of cold air sneaking in through a warmer body of air without mixing. Ventilation is a body of air that, how ever cold, comes in a bunch, and has volume enough to regulate its own temperature. You might think of these things in regard to your hen house, for a fow. is more susceptible to a draught than any living thing. A fowl's body is a regular little en gine. Did. you know that fowls don't 3weat? You didn't! Why, they have no. sweat glands. A fowl's natural temperature, is away above the fever heat 6. all other living creatures, and that makes a draught of air their death warrant.
DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 10 June 1914
DAIRYING, i — POIN.TS. IN CHEESE-MAKING. _ For .hard:pressed . cheese, where n niillc is required, it is beat to use the 'case 111 milk, such as some varieties"oT'mi pressed cheese, it is often most satis factory to use one meal's milk only. Tile rennet must bo very carefully added to milk that is overripe, as the acidity in the milk stimulates the ac tion of the' rennet, making it work very quickly. Unless Krcat care is exercised, the milk will 'bo over-stir red and rendered useless for cheese making. It is most important that the curd be of uniform consistence throughout, and this is obtained by judiciously stirring in the rennet and taking pre cautions to prevent the temperature of the renneted milk falling. Keep the vat covered, and water a little warmer than the milk in the vat jacket. Whey from cheese making may be set in tanks, and the cream skimmed off the next day, before' using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey cream can be made into butter, which may be used for greasing' th...

FINISH IT. When Samuel F. B. Morse, nfter wards famous as the Inventor of the electric telegraph, was a young paint er studying in London, lie made n drawing from a small cast of the Far nose Hercules, intending to offer it to Benjamin West as an example of his worlt. lieing anxious for the favorable opinion of the master, he spent a fort night upon the drawing, and thought lie iiad made it perfect. When Mr. West saw the drawing, lie examined it critically, commended it in this and that particular, then handed it back, saying: — "Very well, sir, very well; go on ami finish it." "But it is finished," said the young artist. "Oh, no!" said Mr. West. "Look here, and here, and here," and he put his finger upon various unfinished nlaces. Mr. Morse saw the defects, now tliat J^ey were pointed out to him, y*"Ticvoted another week to remedy mem. Then he carried the drnw tgain to tlio mnator.

A REAL WOMAN-HATER. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 17 June 1914
A REAL WOMAN-HATER. Carrying to his grave an antipathy Cor the fair sex which characterised his long life of single blessedness, William I-I. Hartley, a wealthy farmer, who recently died at tho age of seven ty-three, provided in his will for tho erection of a monument upon which shall be in imperishable lettering his preference for bachelorhood. After directing that a granite monument be placed over his grave, on which shall be carved an old bachelor standing on the brink of Jordan, preparing to cross the river, with a group of old maids on the other aide, each beckon ing to him, he requested that the fol lowing epitaph be engraved on tho monument: "To an independe t, good-looking old bachelor, who in his younger days preferred living in single life than get married and have a petticoat boss ruling over him."

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 17 June 1914
CHAPTER XPC., The 'Ship Comes to Port. I. i Hugh had a vague idea as to Mat Michel's; reason for 'their -voyage ito flhnrbnure: but. it was vnry indefinite and the philosopher no longer spolce about it. A brusque."Ye shall know .when the time comes," was the best that ' could be got ' out of him, and even George Hedges, .jvlth. a prime clerical faculty of interrogation, did iiext to nothing with such'^a secret grade. . Mat feared to 'disappoint his friends 'and held his tongue. The only person on board who seemed to un derstand • him was Madamo Adele.

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 17 June 1914
HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? When snow falls in the Polar re eions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience of young folks in the theatre of the Royal Geographical Society at burl ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, eve.n '4uring '.lie summer. So the layers of sn nv ore constantly increasing. ; When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but 011 a high tableland there is no such es cape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up great- snow ' mountain, because ,»-the lower layers are pressed down 'jy the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is ill 2 essen tial feature in the glacier. First the grains of ice are no Digger than ,a pin's head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large ones abs...

St. Denys was the most amazed man in Suffolk when liis sister told him to have his clothes wicked and to take himself off from Datton.

"Exactly what I am proposing to tlo . . . in very plain words, Desmond. When it is convenient, I will send for you again." The man pulled fiercely at his auburn moustache, and .seemed quite crushed by the indignity. "In that case," he said, with a vain seeking after the majestic, "in that case, I take the kid—you'll see if 1 don't." Her ladyship raised her eyes and merely looked, at him—he knew that gl...
ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 17 June 1914
ENTERTAINING. Fortunately. t»" unfortunately, no one goes constantly to another per-1 son's house, unless it is made worth his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence has gone a long way towards making her task easy. It is not mean, but natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying a visit or accepting an invitation. We may go to a house to be interested in conversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, see something we don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves with our visit. No one can with reason expect oth ed people to come and see them for more disinterested motives than they themselves are actuated by. After all, the affection which is bestowed with out asking anything In return, can only, be expected once or twice in a lifetime. I consider that entertaining is one of the most wholesome forms which a housewife's energies can take, pro vided ehe keeps it entirely subservi ent to her other home interests.
