FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. "Look at me," said the fat bullock, "I'm worth £60. 1 fairly jingle with sovereigns every timo I walk. It takes a millionaire to buy me. I can remember when I waa dog-poor and they hunted me over tho ranges with whips. I can feel the savage sting of those thongs yet, but you can't see any marks ou my glossy hide now, and it'a to-day that I'm tho beast that's ; worth the money." "I've been a little bit on tho rise myself," said the loaf of bread; and tho butter, which is tirst cousin to the beef, remarked: "Oh, I'm vory firm. In fact, I'm moro of a legend than a commodity these times. There's got to be something doing before you got a pound of me. I'm real hard." "Thero are other peb bles on the beach," said the packet of tea, acidly; "I'm a little bit in the boom myself. With u little bit of a duty I'll do the 'balloon act better than any of you." "Well, well," said the bullock, "I must be off again to my clover patch. My job is to keep fat. We shall meet again...
SOME BEATS WE KNOW OF. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
SOME BEATQ WE KNOW OF1. Heart Beats. Stowed beets. Hoof beats. Newspaper beats. Sugar beets. Dead beats. There is a railway In the West call ed. Sawyer's Mills, but usually called far short Sawyer's. A rustic couple on ono of the trains attracted much attention by their evident fondness for each other until the guard thrust his head in tho doorway of the car and called out "Sawyer! Sawyer!" ••Reuben" suddenly assumed tho per pendicular and indignantly exclaimed: "Well, I don't care if you did; we've been engaged three weeks!" "What iesaous are we to take from the parable of the live wise and the five foolish virgins?" asked the teach er in tho girls' Sunday school. "That we ought always to be ou the lookout for the bridegroom," an swered the little girl.
SIGNS OF SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
SIGNS OF SPIUNG. This is the time for liver Ills, for pains and aches and pinky .pills; when Monday sees you feeling blue, and every other ilay does, too. Of sleep you cannot get enough, you swear that life Is "awful tough"; yoa dream of fields of yellow corn, and wish you never had been born. Your eyes take on a jaundice hue, your brain's t mass of mud and glue; you can't Imagine food or drink, it hurts you every time to think. You know you'd gladly love to croak that friend who tells a funny joke; you shudder when the others howl, for laughter only makes you scowl. At night you scold your lov ing wife and soon the house is full of strife; she wants to see a "movie" show, but by herself she has to go. When she returns you raise a row, you feel nobody loves you now. This is the time, we said before, when every human being's soro, and now the curtain down we'll ring, for these are but some signs of Spring. Petticoats aro being worn again. It is none of your business to know how we fo...
A MOTHER'S DESPAIR. DRIVEN OUT OF HER MIND BY CRYING BABY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
A MOTHER'S DESPAIR. DRIVEN OUT OF HER MIND BY CRYING BABY. Driven to despair by her baby's con slant crying, a mother threw herself and her infant into the river, both be ing drowned. A pitiful story of the tragedy was related at an inquest on the child, held at Westminster.—The lather, a railway clerk named Sim monds, living in Notting Hill, said the incessant crying of the baby, aged ! nine months, had caused his wife to have a nervous breakdown.—Alice . ebb, housekeeper at the Temple lolsters, Temple, said she saw the mother walk down the Temple steps with her baby in her arms. She kissed the child fervently and, clasping him to her breast, jumped into the river.— The Coroner said a crying child was enough to affect anyone's head. The :iother had taken the child to a doc tor, changed his food, and done every thing she could for the infant.—The jury returned a verdict of "Wilful mur I ler" against, the mother, whose body iia.s also been recovered.
LONDON LETTER. Carmelite House, London, June 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
LONDON LEITER. Carmelite Ho^e, LondXi, Juuo 26. Midsummer Day, the longest day in the year, is past, and 1915 has crossed its meridian. The year has sped with amazing rapidity. It seems only the other day that we >vere all of us spec ulating on the coming of the summer campaign, and the great doings that were to begin in May. There were prophets who told us that the war was to be over in June, and many others were confident that the great battles would have been fought by then and only the terms of settle ment would remain to be fixed. It is just on eleven months since the great war began. Had anyone told us in the. old days that in a great war in which England and Germany were en gaged eleven months would pass with out a really decisive action on land and without the main fleets being en gaged at sea, we should have scoffed at them. We are living In a new era in the world's history. Much of the old savagery which we thought gone for ever has been revived and increas ed. The noti...

A FAMINE IN LEECHES. WAR HAS ALMOST WIPED THEM OUT. FACTS ABOUT BLOOD-SUCKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 19 August 1915
A FAMINE IN LEECHES. WAR HAS ALMOST WIPED THEM OUT. FACTS ABOUT BLOOD-SUCKERS. On the outbreak of the war all sorts and conditions of men began ■nuking provision in Europe for the days ot famine that were to come, and now tliey must .be feeling a little ashamed of themselves—at any rate, those ot them wlio "did the thing handsomely." But nobody thought of a possible famine in leeches, and as a consequence, the famine has come. This particular kind of livestock has fallen so low, both in England and on the Continent, that importations of a now Jtind of leech have had to be made to make good the shortage, if possible. The proverbial powers of attach inent of this animal are not such as cause it to be regarded with favor. Vet the time may come to each of us when we may be glad of its services; for the le&lt;-ch is one of the many ob noxious creatures which man has turn ed to his profit. Hut there are many different kinds of leeches. The leech with which we are for the moment co...
FARM NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915

Get down on your knees out in the lucerne and study it.

Sunday Reading. Road Prayers and Sermons. Germ of Originality. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915
| Sunday Reading. !* Conducted by !icv. E. buwiDGK, hoo«. ** Road Prayers and Sermons. Germ of Originality. From a recent article in the " Mes-' aenger" on the above subject, we find that the Christian Church is divided in opinion as to which is the better method amongst young students for the ministry, viz., read prayers and sermons, or extempore prayer and student-made sermons ? A second hand prayer or message has only a second-hand value ; yet it is often in finitely better to have this, than to have imperfect ungrammatical prayers and sermons, which must often be the case, with men who arc only beginning as students for the Christian Ministry. It is far better to read a sermon from a noted preacher, than for a young man to attempt to teach a congregation, many of whom are more deeply read in theology than himself. Some young men have a habit of learning their prayers and sermons by heart; but this method must prove sometimes very embarrassing to the young men them selves. for—un...

WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW. Statistics show that there are more deaths from whooping cough than from scarlet fever, but we have yet to hear of a case proving fatal when Chamber lain's Cough kemedy was used. It should bo given at the first symptom, repeating the dose - frequently. The quick relief afforded by chamberlains' Cough Kemedy makes it a favorite with mothers of .young children. It liquifies the tough mucus, making it easier, to expectorate, keeps the cough loose and counteracts any tendency towards pneumonia.

Remedies for Horse Sickness Flatulent Colic. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 26 August 1915
Remedies for Horse Sickness (By T.D., Boort.) Flatulent Colic. This disease is dangerous, and is generally the result ot chronic dis tension of the bowels, with tendency to inflammation and rupture of the coat. It may be the result of some other disease, or appear as a con sequence of the spasmodic form ; or may be produced by the same causes as those assigned to the acute form. How to know it.—The expres sion of pain is constant, but not too acute. The pulse is rapid and feeble, with difficult, breathing ; the feet and ears are cold, the abdo men is tense and swollen, and it sounds drum like when struck. The animal is sometimes delirious. The intestines are sore, as is shown by the cautious manner of laying down, if, indeed, the horse lies down at all. What to Do.—Be careful about giving purgatives. Act by injec tions of soapsuds and oil of turpen tine, removing the contents of the impacted rectum with the well oiled hand. Give the following in jection—Half pint turpentine, 1 quart...
