WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. It is curious what a secretive ten dency some girls exhibit in their love affairs. It seems that the more deeply anil truly people care for each • other, the less they desire to call the i world to come and gaze upon the spec tacle of their devotion. But there is a very happy medium indeed between that and carrying on a love t,ffair in secret. Some girls— more especially very young girls— have a romantic idea that it is de lightful to keep from those in author ity the knowledge that they have told someone has their love. Cut let me say here that parents ought at once to be informed of a pro posal of marriage, and their consent a_ked, or else no engagement can be entered upon. A man with any sense of honor will wish at once to go to those who have the authority, and ask for their con sent, in such a case. He never tries to hide the matter, evon if it be for the greater enjoyment of secret understanding between him and tlie girl he hopes to make his ...

HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for making excuses. "I'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands in the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest eyed specimen applied for the job of well-digging about ten rods o£ ground, I was taken by his appearance, and told him to come in the morning. " 'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' 1 said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And whilst I was standing by he car ried out my instructions admirably. "I left him at It quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for about six inches deep in the middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. "When I returned he was past the spot, but there was no sign ot the clinkers lying about. I " 'Lend me your spade a minute,' I said, and straightway unearthed ...

THE RAILWAY SLEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

THE RAILWAY SLEEPER. The extraordinary peregrinations o£ an extraordinary sleepy man are re lated by the 'Petit Journal.' He lives at Corbeil, about twenty miles from Paris, and visits Paris several timeB a week. He took the train back from Paris, • fell asleep, and only awoke on being shaken by the guard at Montereau (about seventy miles from Paris). Still dazed with sleep, he got into the wrong train—a non-stop express for Paris—promptly settled down to slum ber again, and only awoke when he reached Paris. He was just in time to catch the last train back to Cor beil. He fell asleep again, and the train reached Corbeil and was shunt ed to a siding for the night. Still the man slept on. At 5.25 the following morning the train started for Paris with the sleeper still plunged in sleep. He would have slumbered on until he got back to Paris had he not been recognised by a friend at an interme diate station and pulled out on the platform. Once more he got in a train for Corbeil, and this...

LINCOLN'S BREVITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

LINCOLN'S BREVITY. President Lincoln's first political speech was made in 1832, at the age of 23, wlieu he was a candidate for tlie Illinois legislature. His opponent had wearied the audience by a long speech, leaving him but a short time in which to present his views. Ho condensed them all into a few words, as follows: — "Gentlemen, fellow citizens, I pre sume you know who I am. I am humble Abraham Lincoln. I have been solicited by my friends to be come a candidate for the legislature. My politics can be briefly stated. I am in favor of the International Im provement System and a High Pro tective Tariff. These are my senti ments and political principles. If I am elected I shall be thankful; if not, it will be all the same." In 1S5S, when the compiler of the "Dictionary of Congress" sent to Mr. Iincoln the usual request for a sketch of his life, he received the following reply: — "Born Feb. 12, 1S09, in Hardin Coun ty. Education defective. Profession a lawyer. Have captained volunte...

CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. Gilray moved back as if that long, slim hand was some fearful thing fraught with peril. Yet he was strange ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense and love of the beauti ful. Nor was he blind to the value of those beautiful old rings that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that he had seen one of them before in a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with the panel of stones had been part of the D'Alen cus treasures. Gilray could have sworn that he had once had it in his hand for in spection; that it was something he at one time had been half disposed to buy. Sweating and trembling as he was from head to foot, he could not keep these thoughts out of his mind. The slim, white arm advanced, the slender Angers with the nails of pearl were almost on his foot, the waving light made circles of flame in the sha dows, he could see the gleaming eyes of the terrified rats. He could see, too, the dark slime on the f...

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called egg foods ga lore, but he real thing is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean meat. Too often the higli-priced win ter egg proves but a pale, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency of green food and; hard grain, especially maize. Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up around it —a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster. An abundar.ee of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but particularly in win ter. . Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.

FOWL CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

FOWL CHOLERA. This is one of the most dreaded diseases in the poultry world. It is caused by a germ aiid is highly con tagious. Once it has established it self m: a- poultry yard, nothing but the "most thorough treatment will pre vent Tthq,-annihilation o£ the entire flock.* Medical treatment is of litle or no avail. The best thing to do is to kill all the sick birds at once, and to kill them in such a way as not to spread the infection with their blood, anfl to burn their bodies. The remain ing fowls should then be divided into siriall. lots of from three to live each, str timt. when a bird is attacked by the_ -tHaease the entire flock will not UfeVexiioaed to it.

TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. The following is an approved meth od: Soak the skin or hide two or three days in water, then put in lime; take out and remove the hair by rubbing, and soak it in clear water until the lime is entirely out. Put lib. of alum to 31br of salt; dissolve in a vessel sufficiently large to hold the hide; soak, the hide in it for three or four days, then take it out, let it get half dry, and then beat or rub it until it becomes pliable. Leather prepared in this way will not do well for shoes, but answers for hame straps, back hands, and various other purposes on the farm. The following is an ac count of the "lightning" method of tanning skins: Pour live or six quarts of boiling water over two quarts of bran, and then strain the infusion. Make an equal quantity of salt water by adding to blood-water as much as will dissolve. Mix the bran and salt water, and to each gallon of the mix ture (when no more than luke-warm) add an ounce of sulphuric acid. Im merse the skins ...
