ADAM AND EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

ADAM AND EVE. What is probably the most remark able and strangest of all alleged Bible tomb3 Is that which marks the sup posed resting-place of Eve, the mother of the human race. It lies about a mile to the north of Jeddah, the port of Mecca. The tradition that Eve -was buried' here Is older than Mohammed. Adam is believed by somo to rest at liis own peak in Ceylon, but this is de bated by Oriental scholars. There had been a difference, so the Mohamme dans say, between our first parents, and Eve spent the last years of her life at Jeddah, where she was buried, not far from the great temple in Mecca which Moslem tradition ascribes to the hands of Adam him self. A common legend attributes to Eve the height of 118ft., but this does not correspond with the dimensions of her tomb, which is nearly 400ft. long! She must have been of a somewhat strange shape, as her grave is only 10ft. or lift, wide! In the middle of the grave is a small building contain ing a curious witness to the devotio...

Abdication. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Abdication. He: "Queen of my heart " She: "Queen nothing! Queens can't pick their husbands. I can-and be lieve me, I'm some picker." Most people think they are virtu ous merely because they are tame and inoffensive. Tameness is not a virtue, it is merely the indication of a force too feeble to run into excess. Virtue appears only when a strong force is wisely exerted under a strong regulation.

But now I have to aslc you for every need; even this morning you said you could not spare me a penny for "The "Weekly Telegraph," and you growl and grumble, and ask if I think you are made of miney, and you rail at women's extravagance, and in variably ask me what on earth I did with the last money you gave me. Don't you love me any more? Pa pa: My darling, I love you as much as ever; but you are soon to he married, and I am trying to gradu ally prepare you for -the change."

EXPERIENCE IN HORTICULTURE. The Pleasures of It. While discussing the pursuit of hor ticulture in its various phases, the best methods of cultivation, best var ieties, the risks and the profits, due weight should be given to its plea sures. In. selecting a vocation for life, one of the first questions to de termine is-will it afford a subsist ence? However" desirable a business calling may be in all other respects, if it cannot support those engaged' in it, it must be rejected. The susten ance of the body takes precedence of everything else.- We must' first satis fy the demands of the physical system before we attempt to gratify the in tellectual-or the aesthetic man. Per haps the second question to be an swered is: Is it agreeable, is it at tractive?' To engage In a- repul6ive calling, to labor day after day, through life, in a pursuit that imparts no pleasure of itself although it may in its results, is to live a life of gall- i ing servitude in which the . higher man is held in s...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Cakes will be considerably light ened if the whites of eggs are beaten up separately from the yolks. If a small piece of soda is dissolved in a little vinegar, and it is then mix ed with the blacklead, it will give a particularly bright appearance to the stove or grate, especially if you pol ish it with' a- pad of old velvet. To render dustbins perfectly sani tary, burn a couple of newspapers in them each time they are emptied. Let the flame rush out, and it will remove every trace of grease or damp from the iron and render the dustbin as healthy as a new one. When making fruit puddings, the basin used should be greased. Theu sprinkle well with brown sugar, and press the paste against the mould. The sugar, after cooking, forms . a rich liquid glaze over the outside of the* pudding, making it look most tempting. Silver-plate that is to be packed away for-any length of time should be thoroughly cleaned, then lightly smeared with fresh lard and put into baize bags. Whe...

Almost every chemist has these simple ingredients in stock, or can easily get them for you from the wholesale...

Out of Doors. As Sweet as Honey. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 25 May 1917

Out of Doors. By William North. As Sweet as Honey. Such a fuss, and all about a little sugar. He demanded lump sugar, and, like any infant, claimed the right to help himself. The landlady had a lot to say on the subject. In vulgar j language, her back was up. Me and me mates did our best to possess our souls in patience, but we did want our tea. Gave me an Idea, though; topical, too. Almost as topical as potatoes. Scarcity of sugar. Neglect of bees. See? How extremely puzzled our fore fathers would have been at the pres ent outcry over the lack of sugar. They knew, of course, of the wonder ful "honey-bearing reed," now called the sugar-cane. A writer of the first century had described it, and not as j a recent discovery either. In course of time it became familiar enough as a luxury of the rich-bit of a luxury j to-day, eh?-but for fifteen or sixteen centuries it was not for the likes of you and me. Who cared?

One day you went around to our home and took a photograph of the persons living there. You have forgotten in all probability the incident, as I. quite ex pect to learn that you have many such errands. I don't know you, as I did not live with my folk immediate ly prior to my enlistment.
