DR. HOLMES AND THE PRINCE. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

DR. HOLMES AND THE PRINCE. When Oliver Wendell Holmes was in England he found himself on one occasion at a "crush" in London among a great mass of people, includ ing several royal personages. He sat quietly in a corner, but presently-feel ing a little faint, and observing re freshments in the distance, he turned to ail elderly personage standing near, whom lie supposed to be a butler of some kind, and asked for a harmless beverage. The supposed servant brought this with alacrity, and re marked: "I am very glad to meet you, Dr. Holmes." The Autocrat' of the Breakfast Table was a little taken abaclc, and the stranger added, "I am Prince Christian." "Dear me," said Holmes, alive at once to the joke, "I have not had much acquaintance with princes, and, do you know, I took you for the waiter!" At this .^Prince Christian went off into a burst of mer riment. "Where is my wife?' he said, "I must tell her this. She admires you immensely." Off went Prince Christian to fetch the Princess, and ...

SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. The wedding ring is always placed 011 the third finger of the left .hand, because this finger is supposed to be in close sympathy -with the heart. In leaving the church, the bride will do well to place lier right foot fore most if she wishes to be happy, heal thy, etc., in the future, and she should always be first to call her husband .by name. Never, if you value your happiness, enter the church before the ceremony at one door and leave after the cere mony by another door. It is said to be. unlucky to tie shoes to any part oi the carriage in which the bride and bridegroom go away, but it is lucky to throw an old shoe after the bride as slie enters the car riage. Throwing rice or wheat over the bride is lucky, as is also confetti, which is much more used now. After the wedding breakfast and re ception, the bride should be careful to throw away and lose all the pins, if there are any * about her. The brides maids should ndt keep the pins them selves, or ...

ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

I ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO.' Silage keeps young stock thrifty and growing all winter. It enables cows to produce milk and butter more economically. Silage is more conveniently handled than dry fodder. The silo prevents waste of maize, which contain about one-third the food value of their entire crop. . There are no aggravating maize stalks in the manure when silage is fed. The silo will make palatable food of stuff that would not otherwise be eaten. It enables a larger number of ani mals to be maintained on a given number of acres. It enables the farmer to preserve food which matures at a rainy time of the Tear, when drying would be next to impossible. , It is the most economical method of supplying food for the stock dur ing the hot dry periods in summer when the pasture is short.

facts about salt. It is wonderful the many tiling that salt may be used for. It is a capi tal remedy for rheumatism if taken regularly before breakfast. A nishtly gargle of salt and water strengthens a weak throat, and keeps off bronchi tis. When eaten with nuts it aids di gestion, and it will relieve heartburn if taken In cold water. It is also a good thing for burns, and for stints of bees; if a thick plaster of wet jali ir tied on the place it will take the pain out. If the chimney gets on fire, throw salt on the fire. If there has heen anything burnt in the oven, throw salt in, and it will take the smell away. When soot drops on the carpet throw salt on it, and then-swep.it up.

LARGE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

large udder. While a large udder is sought for, it is uot always an assurance of heavv milking ability. A large udder may be fleshy and firm in texture, and con sequently would not surpass in pro duction a smaller udder whose tissue was of greater quality. This quality is important, and it is one point upon which a dry cow might be judged for production. The udder should be soft, light and spongy to the touch. The skin should be soft and elastic, and covered with fine silky hair. After milking, the covering should fall in to many folds that are loose, soft and oily. "Man's life and well-being are like a tree. The root of the tree is agricul ture, and manufactures and commerce the branches. Injure the root and the tree dies. Upon agriculture t/ie whole industrial fabric, the whole structure of the state, rests." lie member this, Mr. Cityman. He must be a strong man iwio can conceal his inclination.

HERE'S TO THE HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 15 July 1914

HERE'S TO THE HEROES. We give unstinted praise to .the man - Who is brave enough to die; But the man who struggles unflinch ingly Against the currents of destiny And bears the storm of adversity We pass unnoticed by. We've plaudits and tears for' him who falls, - N Borne down in the-shock of strife; But a word of cheer we neglect to say To him who plods on his dreary way And fights in silence from day to day The unseen battles of life. There's courage, I grant, required to face Grim death on the gory field, There's also courage required to meet Life's burden and sorrow; to brave,. , defeat; - To strive with evil and not rotreac; To/suffer and \not to yield. Some moments are there in every life When the spirit longs for rest; When the heart is filled with a bleak despair, When the weight of trouble, remorse, and care, Seems really greater' than we can bear, „ And death were a welcome guest. But we crush it down and we go our way To the duties that lie in wait, From day to day .we ren...

.CHAPTER VII. Into the Night. When Elsie, all her strengtlii.gone from her, fell forward, Eric grasped her in liis arms, and rained kisses 011 her cheeks and lips. The delirium of passionate Jove swept through him. and he did not nee that the face was pale and white as a lily blossom, showing the intensity of the struggle. "Elsie, Elsie," he cried, at last, "let me hear from your lips that you love me—that you love me with a love stronger tjian death." "Oh, Eric. Eric, do not ask me," she wailed. "Am I not showing you to night that you are all the world to me? Tt makes me frightened." Darling, what is there to he fright ened about? The other chap? Tell me who it Is?" "I cannot, I cannot, Eric; not to night. Let this content yo'u," and she clasped him with feverish em brace, and smothered back the sobs that were choking her. "But I would like to know." he re plied, in his old, masterful voice. "You are not going to keep secrets from me already, eh? Elsie, Uo von want to make me jealo...
