DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. "Don't cross your legs" if you wish to avoid appendicitis, is a theory ad vanced by several noted surgeons. In fact, one goes so far as to sav that if peoplo never crossfr' their le^s the dread complaint would entirely dis appear. The facts are these. Crossing the lops cramps and squeezes the delicate vermiform appendix. The appendix is irritated, and indauinintion sets in.

A KIMBERLEY ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

A KIMBERLEY ROMANCE. By Maud Douglas. Austin Myers had made his "pile," and could return home to spend the rest of his life in luxury and ease toon as he chose to do so. He had sent in his resignation to headquarters over six months ago; his successor had been chosen, had arrived, and was as comfortably set tled in the official residence as any one could be in Kimberley-which in no circumstances can ever be mis taken for heaven on earth. kver, since Austin Myers first set foot in the place he announced in forcible language his fixed intention of not remaining one moment longer than was required for the making of the "pile" which he had set out to accumulate, and in that resolve he was entirely in harmony with every one else there whose creed was work like a nigger, get rich quickly, and "get back" as soon as possible. Consequently, after the new mana ger's arrival, everyone prepared to say .good-bye" to the old one-with out regret either; for Myers was any thing- but popular, and th...

NERVOUS WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

NERVOUS WOMEN. When the nerves get out of order the whole system lags in sympathy. The digestive system, the liver, and the heart ail refuse to do their work. Every nervous woman should eat sev .eral times a day. She should eat three meals, have a light luncheon between meals, and never omit a warm drink taken just before she goes to bed. Gentle exercise and work are as ne cessary to the woman with nerves as food and fresh air. An active interest in life will be her salvation, but gen erally the woman in such a conditio" thinks she is not interested in a thing in life so she must keep at work un til she develops an 'interest. A celebrated physician has said "If you wish to avoid nervousness live with reason, have a purpose in life, and work for it; play joyously, strive not for the unattainable, be not an noyed by trifles, aim to attain neither great knowledge nor great riches, be not self-centred, but love the ,good and thy neighbor as thyself."

The frozen tundra be came a wide moor, diversified with numerous bogs and lakes. It was co vered' v.ith moss, lichens, heath-like plants, dwarf birch, and millions of acres of cloudberries, cr...

HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

HABITS. How shall 1 a habit break? As you did that habit make; As you gathered you must lose; As you yielded,, now refuse. Thread by thread the strands we twist, Till they bind us-neck and wrist; Thread by thread the patient hand Must untwine, o'er free we stand. A great character is like a magnet, its inlluence may be unseen, but it is none the less powerful. Jlen pay homage to genuine excellence as spon taneously as they draw breath. Give your neighbor who may be discouraged a kind, hopeful and up lifting talk and help him take a new ien.se on life. A kind word at the right time may be of more benefit to him than financial assistance. Customer: "Waiter, there is a hair in my soup." Bald-headed Waiter: "1 assure you it ain't mine, sji-."

WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. Wo deplore the tact that, because of the fearful extravagances of modern society, many of our best people con clude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us. They go through life lop-sided. Hall'-dressed, they sit around sewing on buttons, and darning soclts, and then go down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity them .at ail. May all their buttons be off to-morrow evening! Why do they not set up a plain home of their own and come into the. Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon, as a great horror. Why, dear friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity; it is very easy to support a wife if she be of tile kind worth supporting. If she bo educated into false notions of refine ment, aiul have "young ladies' Col lege" piled on her head till she be an imbecile, yon...

COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

COLOR OF MILK. The color of milk- will vary, with the breed of cow yielding the milk, and the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving th milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "luctochrome," pre sent in the fouttcrfat. Milk is paler in color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter o£ a deep yellow color when it is well made. Several faults in the making of but Lc;i' cause much of the color to dis appear, and this should be guarded against.

LADIES' COLUMN. WHERE FASHIONS NEVER CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 July 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. WHERE FASHIONS NEVER CHANGE. There are hundreds of thousands ot' women in Europe to-day who have never seen a fashion book. There are girls to whom ISaster has never meant new hats or spring styles, but just the time to leave off two winter petticoats and the heavy woollen stockings. There are rosy-cheeked maids who make their dresses after the models their great-grandmothers wore. And there is a great charm in the simpli city ol the gaily-colored costume, as one sees ic 011 a happy young gin singing at sunrise in the fields or bringing homo the. baskets or fish at sunset. In Brittany the wooden shoes or sabots, so long considered a distin guishing feature of Holland, are uni versally worn-perhaps more so than ,iu Holland. For there is a growing tendency to discard the old custoin! Rut in Brittany the people are super stitious to an intense degree and seem to regard it as a religious duty that they shall still wear the costumes of their ancestors and continue the tra...
