STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. To ascertain the time at night the Apache Indians employed a gourd on which the stars of the heavens were marked. As the constellations rose in the sky the Indian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around lie could tell the order in which the constella tions might be expected to appear. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel nuts chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As | seinblv was invariably dismissed at I. the last puff of the third pipe of -to bacco of Governor Wouter Van Twil ler. A Montagnis Indian of Canada will set up a tall stick in the snow when travelling ahead of friends who are to follow. He marks with his foot the line of slia'dow ca,st., and t>y the change in the angle of the shadow the oncoming party can tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the leader is. In love-making ,as in other arts, those do it best w...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. A mushroom fouud on Mr Pcarce's Mount Charley property, Tallangatta, last week, was oft. Gin. in circumference at the head, aud the eircumferenee of the stem was 11 inches. " . . j A oampaign against free drinks at farm sales is being carriod 011 by a Cumberland auctioneer, who says the people who drink the most are those who are least good to him or the farmer, and that the latter can ill afford to supply driuk. Boxing as an exercise has grown greatly in popularity amongst womin, and one indication of the spread of the sport is the meeting to contest the world's championship among representatives of England, Fiance, and Germany, which was to have taken place in Paris. The police, however, vetoed the proposal. Do not drink while eating, nor eat while driuking, says Dr David Paulson in " Good Hoalth." If you drink at meal times you should driuk between the mouthfuls instead of with iho food. Drink a glass of water on rising and retiring, a hour before each meal, an...

The Widowand the Tombstone [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

The Wid owand the Tombstone Her hands were soft and cool, as if they had been formed for smoothing the pillows of the dying. And she fulfilled the designs of Providence. She was, first of all, Ada Montgom ery, the daughter of a rural dean, and when she was eighteen married her .father's curate. Her husband died of his felicity or of the reu-fj=^ : two years, and she returned to C.'.: r? : tory as Mrs. llaultain. Difcrc t'j . crape was more, than becomingly fray ed, she engaged herself to a;; archi tect who had com'e from town to re store the church after some Laudiau ideal. For five years she scintillated in an artistic set somewhere in Ken sington until one day her husband, Ernest Shandon, was brought homo from his office in apoplexy. After a week's devoted nursing she was again a widow, with a large fortune,' and still childless. She passed once more in 10 the seclusion of the rectory, and emerged only when she married a young Gordon Highlander who haj stopped at the manor for a w...

TRICKING THE PORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

TRICKING THE PORTERS. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which are sometimes made against railway servants, Mr. W. I'\ Jackson, tne general manager of the North British Railway Company, has been telling a good story, the facts of which, he said, were ascertained in the investigation of a complaint made oy the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of the Glasgow stations, and going up to a porter said: "I say, porter, can you tell me where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" lie asked. ' "What have you got to do with that? Can' you tell me where I will get my train?" "But I cannot tell without " "Well, I'm not going to tell you where I'm going. I'll get someone else to help me." With that the old lady toddled far ther up the platform, and meeting an other porter propounded her conun drum to him. "Where are you going, madam?" was his natural question. "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as impertiflent as your mate. I'm not go ing to tell you where I'm goi...

THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. The dried fruits, such as raisins, dates, figs, currants, etc., are not only delicious to the taste, 'but are also among the most nutritive of foods. In the past these fruits have been too little known outside of rich fruit cakes and mincemeat; consequently their who,esomeness has not been adequately appreciated. They may be used to advantage in many other ways. Fruit Bread.-Fruit bread is becom ing very popular. When making bread, reserve a part o£ the dough, to which add some well-washed currants or seeded raisins, a little sugar and butter, and raise and bake the same as the plain bread. Currant Loaf.-Take two cupfuls of bread dough, one egg, half a cupful of sugar, half a teaspoonful of salt, two iablespoonfuls of butter, one tea spoonfiu of flavoring or spice, one rounded teaspoonful of balcing-powder and one cupful of well-flour currants. Beat the other ingredients together, until you can see no streaks of dough, before adding the fruit; t...

A Witty Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

A Witty Woman. Some stories told about Mrs. Wel don, the celebrated "Modern Portia," who recently passed away, indicate what a clever woman she was. She once set the court laughing ow ing to her replies to counsel. "You are Mrs. Georgiana Weldon?" she was asked. 'No, I am not!" came the prompt reply. "But surely you are the wife of Mr. Weldon?" "Yes, I am." Finally she enlightened the barris ter, who had come near to losing his temper, that her name was Georgina, not Georgiana. "Why couldn't you have said that at first?" he thundered. "Because, she answered, in her sweetest accents, "you never asked me!" On another occasion, in the .Court of Appeal, she urged as one of the grounds oC her complaint that the judge who had given the decision against iier was too old to understand the case. The chief judge reminded her that the last time she was there she complained that her case had been tried by a "bit of a boy" who could not do her justice. "What age do you want a judge to be?" he in...

ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

ALLOWANCES. An excellent idea, and one that is steadily growing in favor, is tlie cus tom o£ allowing quite young girls a fixed sum for their small current ex penses, permitting full liberty in the expenditure, but requiring a strict ac counting in a business-like form at stated periods. No better method could possibly be devised to teach the true value of money and instil cor rect business habits; and practical financial ability will not come amiss, whatever the future lot may be, whe ther as a wife or a member of the maiden sisterhood. Not that the mat ter of mere saving is so important, but the systematic habits formed in this particular will have an undoubted effect on all the other habits as well. There are a number of young ladies in this city, belonging to wealthy families, who manage property and with marked ability. The father of one of these presented her, on her twenty-first birthday, with the deed of a house in the business part of the city, on the condition that she wou...

"A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

,'A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." "I married you in order to love you in God and according to the need of my heart, and in order to have in th* midst of the strange world a place for my heart, which all the world's bleak winds cannot chill, and where I may find the warmth of the home fire, to which I eagerly betake myself when it is stormy and cold without." Can you imagine whose words are these? Perhaps you might say they were written by some lovesick senti mentalist; but you would mistake. They are found in the "Love Letters of Prince Bismarck," which have just been published, and from their am ple pages you could cull a hundred similar passages. There are many different judgments of Prince Bis marck current in the world to-day, but there cannot be two opinions as to the purity and depth of .his affec tion for his wife. Probably she was the greatest single force that ever entered his life. She does not seem to have been an intellectual or a brilliant woman, but she was clear-minded, sensi...

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. All children possess imagination in a greater or less degree, and in the management of the nursery this facul ty may be ranked among the import ant ones. In trifling matters, where no real principle is involved I always consider the easiest way the best way, as, for instance, this morning, when my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual and curling her tiny pink toes be neath her gown, declaring miscliiev osuly she wouldn't have any 'tock in's on at all." For a minute I was nonplussed. Baby had not ben well for several days and was just in the humor to rebel vigorously against enforced obedience. Papa was in the sound morning sleep that benefits a night worker, a cry must be avoided if pos sible, so, as a thought struck me, I held the small stocking invitingly open and said pleasantly, "The naugh ty little food said it wouldn't go into this stocking, but t...

SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

SPEECHES MADE TO ORDER. A little, quiet, book-lined office in the heart of the West End of London is occupied by a gentleman who is prepared to turn out speeches for all occasions. During a recent interview the. speechmaker-in-chief remarked that, while speeches have often been written by others than those who de liver them, he thinks his is the first attempt to concentrate the supply and to establish the now profession of gentleman speechmaker. 'I am as ready with an after-dinner speech as any other," he said. "They can be bright or serious as required, and I have already prepared a good many speeclies which have been de livered with success in different parts of the country. 'Impromptus' are a specialty. "The method is simple enough. I ark clients to supply me with any lo cal allusions they require, and an idea, if they have one, of the trend of the speech. The rest they can leave to me. I have made a practice of attending all the functions I could for years past, so I know exactl...

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." Is it possible to provide the feeble minded with more 'brain until they are normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it ha.', nevertheless, l>een seriously dis cussed at the Congress of Medicine in Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the science which is known as "or ganotherapy" have already beei\ at temptec1. This science really consists of treat ing diseased organs with medicines made from simitar organs. It is point ed out by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one organ with extracts from a similar one was practised 2000 years ago, although, of course, in a very crude fashion. It is on record that patients suffering from an atfe tion of any particular part of their system were given the same part of an animal to eat, with the idea of repairing the locitl waste and dam age. Thus consumptives were order ed to eat sheep lungs, while for dys peptics was prescribed a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the ch...

THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. The fowls love an occasional dose of charcoal. Wheat and oats in rotation make a good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free l'rom lice. Sprinkling the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in keeping the fowls free from throat and lung troubles. There is no advantage in allowing the poultry to tramp around in tho snow. Better keep them confined while the weather is bad. In putting eggs aside to keep for setting care should be taken to keep at as even a temperature as possible: they should be turned regularlv every two or three days. Lime water is not only a good cor rective of bowel disease, but is also a good remedy for soft shelled eggs. Keep a supply convenient where the fowls can help themselves. One of the most important items in setting hens early is to have tho nests warm and dry. Make them tight and set them in the warmest part of the house, a...

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is a curious fact that 110 one lias .been able to say precisely when and : where Nelson lost his left eye. Somo say that the disaster occurred during the siege of Bastia, in 1793, while others decide that it was the siege, of Calvi. According to Signor D. Liberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. He says that it was in the year 1780, when the future "god o£ the seas," then a post captain in the Royal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added him to the list of one-eyel warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury on the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other flat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of San Juan, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Tha Spanish commander was laid lip in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the im...
