His Golden Text. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 20 November 1914

His Golden Text. ' A Sunday School service was held iu church u few months ago, and the teacher had thought that in order to make the servico more impressive it would be a good plan to hnvo six year old Johnnie go to the rostrum and repeat the golden text of flip morning. This Johnnie consented to do. The golden text was, "I am the bread of life." When it came time for Johnnie'* pnrt of the programme he arose from his seat with calm assurance, npd walked boldly down the aisle to (lie rostrnm. Once up on tho rostrii n. with the sea of faces confnmtin? him. Johnnie's calm u.-siirance sud denly left hint. Tilings looked entirely different from the platform. He he sitated, standing first on one foot and then on to.the other. Finally, in n slinking <-oicc, he shouted: "I am-n loaf-of bread."

WIVES LIKE TO BE FLATTERED. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 27 November 1914

WIVES LIKE TO BE FLATTERED. There Is more value In a bit of tender flattery from the lips of a hus band than alt the presents that ever were made, and one may ]»e certain that the man who forgets to make love to his wife is in danger of losing his olace in her affection. Youth flies and beauty vanishes, but i rcmance lives in every woman's heart j *hilo it beats. She is as susceptible to lov/a flat i teries when she i? sKty as she was at : sixteen. More so. Indeed. For tender , words fall on old hearts like reviving : rains when they come after a long ? iroupht. and sentiment that has been ' smothered by duty will spring up in a ! thousand blossoms of delight. ; The Creator could make womeL i without vaujty, of course, but he neve* ! has.

FUMED AND GOLDEN OAK. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 27 November 1914

. FUMED AND GOLDEN OAK. One hears so frequently nowadays ihe terms "fumed oak" and "golden ; :>ak," that the question naturally arises ! is to the meaning of the terms. I The best "golden" effect is obtained ! with what is known as quartered oakr ; the log belns sawn in half, and then j these halves sawn in half again, mak- ' Ing quarters. Each of these quarters i are then sawn at right angles, with : two sawn sides parallel with the bark ! ilde, thus givins the flakes of the | woods In their greatest area and bean* . ly. The wood is then filled and stain- .j id. None of this treatment, however, j iffects the flakes, which show up a | folden yellow, especially after the var- j aish coats have been applied. "Fumed oak" is oak that has boon j treated with the fumes of ammonia. The effect of the ammonia Is to dark* »n the wood, and It also cuts the grain; roughing it up. After the wood has I been treated with the fumes of the j immonla It is sandpapered down, and ; itained or waxed,...
