BIPLANE AS HEARSE. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
BIPLANE AS HEARSE. A strange posthumous enthusiasm for a now form of locomotion has >been displayed by M. Ivan Sopornowski, a Russian millionaire. M. Sopornowekl (luring his life was extremely conservative and even re fused to enter a motor-car. In his .will, however, was found a clause be queathing £20,000 to any airman who could convey his coffin to the grave side in an aeroplane.

He placed the coffin j in his biplane and flew to the ceme- j tcry, making a bad landing, which was j nearly fatal to himself.

REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. It is a pathetic thing to see people struggling wfth reduced circumstances —that is, a reductlou of income, and an inability to live as they have been in the habit of living. Rut much heart-break would be spared If when such adverse fate comes people would only at once settle down ami accept the new and smaller income, and live on what it will easily give them, rather than to try to "lceep up appearances." Every day we see people trying to live in a large house with one cheap mald-of-all-work, where they had kept, and kept busy, three competent servants, or even more— trying to keep up with the society that they, can no longer afford to move in, by scrimping and toiling every where, and having no happiness and no peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with out necessaries to pay for them; mak ing over old gowns indefinitely in or der to accept invitations, and carrying hearts that ache harder and harder all the time. If only they w...

CHAPTI3U XT. The Serpent Shows Its Tooth. The winter months had parsed, and now blustering March with Its storms was upon them. The fishermen of Port Crnigic were beginning to buzz around their boats again. Rrlc was In London, and from many sources these humble folks at home had assurances that he was yet destined to dazzle the world by his gift of song. Angus Galbraith, the fisherman, turned wearily to his life of toil again, carrying in his si lent heart that load that would never lift. As for "Elsie, when he saw her face he had his reward. She had got back her old, bright, laughing nature, and if ever a thought entered her mind of the days when she had seen Into the inner depths of a strong •man's soul, it was only as a tender memory that soothed rather than dis turbed her. For the first three months after the departure of Eric she had gone about the house singing softly to herself. Her only recreation was the piano— a gift from Angus. With industry that was indefatigable she pra...

THE BONES OF LIGHT AND HEAVY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
THE BONES OF LIGHT AND HEAVY HORSES. 5 Definite information concerning dif- | ; ferences between the bones of light } and heavy liorses has been obtaiued - by D. Hardt, of Jena University, Ger many. * Upon chemical analysis of many , specimens of metacarpus or front can- ; non bones, he found that on the whole the bones of draught horse6 contain more organic matter and less jnineral matter than 'those of light horses. i There are also some minor differ ences in composition, but he conclu ded that there are greater differences iu form and strength than in the chem ical composition cf^the bones of the two types. **" This supports the common state ment of horsemen that the bones- of llghi horses are generally harder than those of draught horses, for the hard ness of bone aud its strength are known to increase with additional per centages of mineral matter.

I could not keep my food down, not even a drink of water. I was bad like this for nearly three months. The doetor tnade me wean my child, as he said that I had abscesses on my liver and that I would have to have them cut out. I was in the hospital at the time. The doctor told me to take my baby home and come back again. I had about 18 miles to travel by coach, and some kind woman in the coach told me of Warner's Safe Cure.

ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
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 ytuff that would not otherwise be eaten. It enables a larger number of ani j mals to be maintained on a given i number of acres. It enables the farmer to preserve food which matures at a rainy time of the year, when drying would be next to impossible. , It is the most economical method of supplying food for the slock dur ing the hot dry periods in summer when the pasture is short.

THE WORLD. The world is well lost when tho world is wrong, No matter how men derido you, For if you are patient and firm and strong, You will find it In time (though the time be long) That the world wheels 'round be aido you. If you dare to Ball first o'er a-new thought trade, For awhile it will scourge and score you j Then, comiug abreast with a skilful tack, It will clasp your hand and slap your buck, And vow it was there before you.

FAMOUS WIDOWS. News comes from Knoxville, Ten nessee, of the death of "Parson" Brownlow's widow, at the age of nine ty-five years. Few people knew that 'until so lately there remained this liv ing link with the famous "fighting parson" of war times, whom Tennes see expelled because of his bold at tacks upon secession, but afterwards recalled to be its governor. Yet how many widows of distinguished men have survived their husbands so long that they have seemed to trail phan toms of history through the living re alities of a later generation!

POINTS ON PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
POINTS ON PALMISTRY. Smooth, conical Angers are a sign of talkativeness and levity. Strong, knotted lingers show pru dence and capacity. A palm too slim, narrow, and feeble indicates instinct without capacity. If the palm is too large the person is coarse and animal-like. If the outer-joint of the Angers forms a knot, the person has well-ar ranged ideas. The individual who has knots at the middle joints of the fingers always has a place for everything and every j thing in its place. Intellect belongs to knotted fingers, grace to smooth ones. The person whose Angers are smooth and pointed is guided wholly by in spiration, and never has a reason for what he does. The hard, wrinkled hand which is opened to its full extent with diffi culty Bhows intractability, a roind without pliancy. Large hands mean a close attention to minute details. Broad nails show the owuer to be bashful and gentle.
WE DIDN'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
WE DIDN'T KNOW. "Johnuy's gone to bo a nangel," a little girl, with eyea wide with awe and wonder, confided to a visitor at the house of mourning. "Johnny's my brother, and I didn't know he was gofn' to he sick and go away last night. On'y yesterday he was here with his coat all tore where he'd been playin', and his hands scratched. He wanted a bite of my apple, and 1 wouldn't give him any. 1 wish now I had, but I didn't know he was goln' to be a nangel," Poor little sister! That is what we all say afterwards, "We didn't know," and oh! how our hearts ache over the scratched hands for which we for ; got to show any sympathy, and the I apples we seliishly refused to share! We were busy, tired. Impatient, and our own hands were smarting. We j thought our burdens heavy; we want | ed to be helped ourselves, instead of helping others, and the little plea at our side met no response. We didn't know it was the last plea, but now I we can never forget the wistful eyes I which followed us tha...
HORSES AND MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
HORSES AND MEN. A Boston man tells of an innocent farmer who once sought out a phreno logist and asked him to read his bumps. In revealing to the farmer his tem perament as shown by the aforesaid bumps, the professor said:— "Your tastes are the simple, homely ones of the farmer. You are a far mer, aro you not? Ah! I thought so. And I am right as to your tastes, am I not? You are sadly deficient in judgment, and have little knowledge of human nature. Your innocent and trustful disposition renders you an easy dupe to designing men, and your own perfect honesty prevents you from either suspecting or defrauding anyone." The following week, it appears, the phrenologist bought a horse from the innocent farmer. Although the nag was old and in bad condition, It had been made to appear young and skit tish. Moreover, though the farmer had paid but £5 for the animal, he contrived without difficulty to unload him on tho professor for £15. "It's wonderful," said tho farmer to a friond, as he pro...
