FIFTEEN HUNDRED WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
FIFTEEN HUNDRED WIVES. Probably few people suspect Central Africa of harboring some of the most wonderful cooks In the world, but tbo fact was announced by Mrs. M, French Sheldon, the well-known traveller and explorer, in the course of a lecture re cently. "These African people are the most wonderful and fastidious cooks In the world," said the lecturer; "their cook ing is marvellous, and they know prac tically every tree and plant that slmu* lates a flavor. For instance, the ne gress chef is in no way dismayed by tiio lack of onions and pepper; she merely gathers the bark of a certain tree and scrapes the inner side to get the one, and searches for a particular plant, which, rightly used, produces the flavor of the other; and her skill and patience in blending new flavors and concocting fresh dishes. are un bounded. With these powers at her command) it is scarcely to be wonder ed at that wives in Central Africa are in great demand. The possession of many wives Is, in fact, a sign o...

WATCH THE CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
WATCH THE CLOCK. Bo careful about winding clocks. Wind thein always at tho same time, and never wind them too tight. Find out just how many full turns of the key it takes to wind the clock to the proper point, and always stop with that number of urns. A clockmaker says that tho hands of the clock should never be put back. If this is necessary to net the clock, push the hands forward, as there are some very delicate screws that the backward pushing is likely to disturb. If the clock strikes, always wait, when setting tho clock, with the hand just after each hour for the clock to strike for that hour; and wait at the half-hours, too, if the clock strikes every thirty minutes. Don't let the clock run down. Wind it regularly every twelve or twenty four or thirty-six hours, or seven days, or every stated time* when it' needs winding. A clock should be moved as seldom as possible. If it does not go where it is first placed, probably it: Is set unevenly. An uneveness of a fractfon of an In...

He said that out there tips were expected by every servant with whom one came in contact, and the man who' refused to tip got into awful trouble. He told a story of an angry wife who confronted her husband one morn ing. "Where were you last night?" she demanded. "I toldi you, my dear," the man re I plied patiently. "I was at a political dinner." "Then," exclaimed his wife indig ! nantly, "what is the moaning of this long golden hair on the shoulder of your dress coat?" "Ah, that came from the porter who called a cab for me," the man replied. "Oh, nonsense!" exclaimed the an gry wife. "I'd like to see a hotel por ter with long golden hair!" v "He hadn't golden hair, my dear," said her husband soothingly. "But he put it on me out of revenge because I didn't tip him."
