A New Dish. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 1 August 1914
A New Dish. A few weeks ago visitors called un expectedly n a certain family, great ly to the chagrin of the good house wife, for the larder was rather short, and there was no way, at that late hour, to replenish it. "Bridget, said the mistress, taking the servant-girl into her confidence, "you will have to bring everything that you can find, and I will make ail apology at the table," "All right, mum," was the reassur ing response of Bridget. "Yez can just lave it to me." The dinner-hour came, and, taking the cover from one dish, the mistress was surprised to find it empty. "Why, Bridget," said the hostess, turning and addressing the servant girl, "what is the meaning of this empty dish?" "Shure, mum," was the stratling re joinder of Bridget, "didn't yez say yez would make an apology at the table, in' don't yez want a dish to put it on!" - '■"» '
One Thing Needful. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 1 August 1914
One Thing Needful. He was ill, or at least said that he was, and the other day he entered the office of a well-known physician and sank into a leather-covered arm chair in the ante-room waiting his turn on the list. At last it came, and the doctor ex amined his tongue critically, felt his pulse, inquired as to the symptoms o£ his illness, and then looked wise. Taking a pad from the table, he wrote a prescription, calling for bread pills, and distilled water, or some thing of that sort. Then, turning in his chair, the pi rsician said: "1 cannot see that anything seri ous is the matter with you. What you need is plenty of air " The patient smiled a broad, bland smile, but said nothing. "Take this prescription regularly every night; but above all things get plenty of air. Good, wholesome, outdoor atmosphere, that is what you need more than anything else." "Ha, ha, ha! I need air, do I?" shouted the man. "Well, that Is funny." "Why, what do you mean?" Inquired the doctor. "Mean? Why, I ...

Made Up in Quantity. An old woman, who liad grown grey and bent in the service of the family who had raised her from childhood, was not gifted with an over-abundance of grey matter, and her mistakes and queer ideas furnished much amuse ment to those about her. One day a Yorkshire pudding that si e had made for dinner did not seem quite as it should he, and the mistress called Eunice and said, "What is the matter with the pudding, Eunice? Did you make it in" the usual way?" "Yesm'm," said Eunice. "How many eggs did you put in it?" "Six." "Six!" exclaimed the mistress; "why, the recipe only calls for four!" "Yesm'm, I know," said Eunice; "but they werent very good, so I put in more of 'em."

CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 1 August 1914
CHARACTER TOLD BY THE NOSE. . It is an ancient belief that the nose indicates ancestry. We speak about the aristocratic nose with its'high bridge and the plebeian nose of the -toiler. Certainly, in a great many cases, race can be distinguished by tiie nose. The Hebrew could hardly be confused' with the typical negro nose. The highly-arched nose is sup posed to indicate tendency to rule, and the flattened nose shows servil ity. There are several classes of noses, if we are to take the word of pliysi ogno" ists. The Roman nose indicates executive ability. Its owner is the aggressive person, the conqueror. Portraits show that the ancient war ri rs had this type of nose. The Ro mans were trained especially for deeds ot valor. The modern owner of such a nose will achieve success, be a leader, perhaps not in a battle for blood, but in business or profes sional life. The woman with this n-so may btain social leadership-if s' chooses that rather than some other line of achievement. The Grec...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 1 August 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. A pinch of salt added to mustaru helps to prevent It from drying or caking. . To make the gas burn brightly a little salt should be sprinkled over the top of the mantle. This should be done when the gas is burning. If your oven will not brown your psstry or cakes as well as you wouid like, put the cakes or tarts on the up per tray, and throw a little sugar on the floor of the oven. Always put a cauliflower in plain water so as to draw out any insects —if salt is placed in the water it kills the insects and they are left in the vegetable. Common baking powder is one of the best remedies for the removal of warts and corns. Bind on wet, and moisten with soda several times a day. The warts and corns will quick ly disappear. To turn a jelly out of a mold with out breaking it, try rubbing a very little of the best olive oil on the shape before pouring in the jelly. If you do this you will never have another broken jelly. Before frying bacon, is a good plan to put the ras...
HARRY OAKLEY'S PROMISE I. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 1 August 1914
HARRY OAKLEY'S PROMISE By James A. Gartell. "Harry, she is coming, after all— will- be here about six months," said Silas N. Oakley to his son, looking up from the letter he was reading. "You'll be able to see her for yourself then." "Oh!" responded the boy, laconical "You'll not be so indifferent then," said the father. "You'll be madly in love with her before she's been here a week." Harry shrugged his shoulders in contempt. "It's time we understood each oth er thoroughly, dad," lie said. "I'm not going to be rushed into a ready made marriage just to fall in with the sentimental wishes of a couple of dear old men." Silas N. Oakley set his lips. lie did not like opposition. It roused the worst side of his nature. He had, in earlier years, fought his way up wards step by step, conquering by sheer force of will and endeavor, un til to-day his word was accepted as __lawf- not-only— in-his ihllls""a"n'd home, but also very largely on the woollen market. It was in the morning-room of hi...
