If They Were Alike. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

If They Were Alike. The other day a gentleman farmer having some pigs for sale offered to dispose of them to a pork butcher. The latter called at the farm, where, before proceeding to the yard, he : was hospitably treated and introduced to his host's daughters. A gallant man is that porkist, and one who never lets pass an opportunity of. paying a compliment. i "Now, sir," said he, oil leaving the room, ."I've seen your young ladies, ; and I'm going to see your young ; swine, and if the two's much alike ' there won't be no difficulty about , bringing off a deal."

THE CONDESCENDING LANDLADY [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

THE CONDESCENDING LANDLADY Miss Ethel Irving tells ail amusing story relative to the very peculiar views still held in some quarters concerning the members of the pro I fession of which she is so distin guished an ornament. Once, when on tour, all the hotels in a town where she was playing were full, and all the best lodgings were also occupied by farmers and their wives, owing to its being cattle show week. Eventually she was glad to take shelter for the night in the humble abode of a good lady who eked out a slender income gained through tak ing in washing by letting lodgings to all and sundry. The landlady proved to be a good sort, however, and on leaving Miss Irving thanked her cordially for her kindness and consideration. Imagine the amused astonishment of the famous actress when the good lady, looking up from her wash-tub, said with benign condescension: "That's all right, my dear. I'm al ways good to theatricals, for I never know what my own children may come to." During a di...

KILL THE WORM! [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

KILL THE WORM! "Is it too much to hope that this black and bitter frost of war may reach and kiii this worm that works havoc in the heart of Old England?" asks a writer in the "Morning Post." "It is an occasion when men's minds are highly stirred and when they are no longer content with abuses be cause they are old and familiar. And they must also see, as a point of sheer necessity, that there must be reform if the nation is to t'ace the difficult and dangerous times that are ahead. It must be reform not mere ly in system but in spirit. There must be an uprising of the nation against these evils, and all that is best in the life of the country must come to gether to think out something bet ter." Mr. Jinkworthy had become greatly puffed up over the fact that his wife was telling the neighbors that she had a model husband. He bored his col leagues in the office about it until one of them called him to one side and suggested that he should look up the definition of the word "model." Mr...

Sam the Sprucer. The Spring Gets Into His Blood and He Falls In Love. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

Sam the Sprucer, The Spring Gets Into His Blood and He Falls In Love. By F. W. Thomas. "Why this gloomy countenance?" I aslced Sam. "Why do you eit there with a face as long as a flute and make melancholy noises as i£ you'd got a pain where you couldn't get at it?" "Ah!" said. Sam, sadly. "It's love; it's love that makes the world go round. Beer will do it, of course, but beer's a shilling a pint, so in my case I know it's either love or indiges tion. "In the spring, you know, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of thin vests and brimstone and trea cle, and spring onions and spring mat tresses, and spring chickens and spring greens. He sees the crocuses a-crocussing, he sees the bulrusliing and the cowslipping, he hears the blithe bullock a-warbling in the trees, and his thoughts naturally turn to wards the girl that cleans the steps across the road. "Consequently the tender passion has entered into my heart, and I'm all of a tremble. Sometimes I feel sort of anyhow, other...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 13 July 1917

CHAPTER III. In the large sunlit room Daphne stood behind her mistress's chair, as the latter sat at the dressing-table. The room was panelled in white, and upholstered in pale green. The dressing-table was of plate glass, sup ported on gold legs, and on It stood a three-leaved mirror, framed in gold, while a mass of gold bottles, and gold and tortoise-shell brushes, furnished the table with a jewel-like radiance. The electric lights were turned full on. and struggled with the dying sun, and a wood fire crackled pleasantly in the grate. Lady Eileen was a fair, frail-look ing slip of a girl, with masses of golden hair that felt soft as silk in Daphne's hands. She chattered gaily, and even familiarly, with her maid, evidently considering the distance be tween them so great that no kind ness could bridge it. "Make me look very lovely to night," she said. "What will your ladyship wear?" asked Daphne primly. The secret of her success - for successful she was already-was that she was so t...

CHAPTER II. i en uays later Daphne sat in her mother's drawing-room-a well furn ished room, brightened with a Per sian carpet, and full of old china or naments, inlaid cabinets, and rather good screens collected by the late Dr. Merrycourt; who, before he set tled down to a London practice, had travelled much, and bought lavishly mementoes of the countries he had visited. An open-handed man, with a cultured taste, he had not hesitated to gratify it, looking upon economy as meanness, and upon luxury as jus tifiable extravagance. Thus the room In which she sat . was as unique in its way as the girl herself, in the black dress that show 64 np her wonderful coloring. She was watching the door, that opened Presently to admit a slight dapper nan, who crossed the room and took her hand, "1 am glad you were able to come," she said. "There is so much to set tle.

You're a Earned sight more reckless than I thought you were. Molly (between waltzes): He said the world had been like a desert to him till he met me. Polly: That explains why he dances so like a camel, I suppose. An Irishman, passing a shop where a notice was displayed saying that, everything was sold by the yard, thought he would play a joke on the shopman, so he entered the shop and asked for a yard of milk. The shop man, not in the least taken aback, dipped his lingers in a howl of milk, and drew a line a yard long on the counter. Pat, not wishing to be caught in his own trap, asked the price. "Sixpence," said the shopman. "All right, sorr," Bald Pat. "Rqll It up; I'll take it,"

Then, in a meek voice, he addressed an awkward youth standing next to him. "Young man," he said, "I hope you will not think me rude, but may I ask your age?" The youth stared at him for a mo ment, and replied: "Eighteen." "Eighteen," said the little man softly. "Now, really, young man, don't you think that you are old enough to stand on your own feet?"

BRIGHT CEMETERY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Is it not time that the cemetery trustees awoke to the responsibility of their position. I visited God's acre on Mon day last in company with many others, and I was struck with the neglected appearance of its surroundings. Weeds are growing on the footpaths, and scrub is abundant in all directions. I have not seen a financial statement for some time, but surely the trust is not short of a few pounds. If such is the case why hoard the money ? .The grounds could at least be made to look as if somebody had control of it. We do not possess many beauty spots in Bright, and surely our local cemetery could be made an ex ception. -Yours etc , PROGRESSIVE. Bright, 16/7/17.

The Open Column [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in this column.] THE DELICIOUS CASABAS AND THEIR CULTIVATION TO THE EDITOR SIR.-These magnificent fruit are as yet practically unknown here, where they could be grown as easily as melons or pumpkins. They are totally distinct from ordinary rock or water melons, and in a class by ? themselves. In California, U.S A. where the climate is similar to ours, they are very profitable and are grown extensively, and hundreds of cat loads are forv/arded to the Eastern States each season. There are many varieties, the best of which appear to be the 1m proved Hybrid, Golden Hybrid, lieauty and White African'; they all possess a most delicate flavor and are most nutrit ious and sustaining on account of the firmer flesh than ordinary melons. They ripen up to quite late in the fall and keep well into early winter, and, if stored in a cool place will keep still later. Varieties placed in a sunny window for a few days w...

Try Magnesia For Your I Stomach Trouble. IT NEUTRALISES ACIDITY AND PREVENTS FERMENTATION. DOUBTLESS you have already tried pepsin," bismuth, soda, charcoal, drugs, etc , and so you kn.ow that these things will not cure your trouble-in some cases they do not even give relief-but before giving up hope and deciding that you are a chronic dyspeplic just try the effect of a little magnesia-not the ordinary carbinate, oxides or citrates, but bimratcil magnesia, which you can obtain from practically any chemist in either powder or tablet form. Take half a- teaspoonful of the powder or two compressed tablets with a little water after your next meal, and see what a difference this makes, k will instantly neutralise the harmful acid which now causes your food to ferment, giving rise to wind, heartburn, flatulence and many other unpleasant symptons, and you will find that, provided you take a little hi snraled magnesia immediately afterward, you can eat almost anything and enjoy it without an...
