STUMBLING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

STUMBLING HORSES. Some horses are naturally addicted to stumbling, others acquire the fault, and still others have the stumbling habit thrust upon them, says an ex change. In the lirst. it is almost in curable, but the second and third causes can be remedied by the rider or driver. If the ground, is rough or uneven, horses with low action are prone to stumble. Other horses which are naturally slipshod, generally stum ble because they do not lift their feet high enough from the ground. Lazi ness is another causc for stumbling, and horses that are heavy in front, or whose forelegs are weak or un sound, have the same fault. Yery of ten carelessness on the part of the driver causes a horse to stumble. This makes it necessary always to bear in mind the value of keeping horses well in hand and sufficiently collected. If the habit is due to laziness, it can of ten be cured by riding or driving the horse over rough ground until he has been broken of the fault. But in all cases the cure rest...

IN HAWAII. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

IN HAWAII. | Servants in the Sandwich Islands I liave a curious habit, says a lady I writer, of calling their employers by their first names. Hers, she adds, was always saying. ''Yes, .lolin," to lier husband, and "Very well, Mary," to her. When we got a new cook I told my husband to avoid calling me "Mary," so that. Ihe cook, not knowing my name, would have to say "missus" to me. So John always called me "sweet heart" or "deary," never JIary. One day we have some officers to din ner. and I told lliom ot the rule I had adapted, and added, "By this servant, at least, you won't hear me culled ! Mary." ? Just, then the new cook entered the I room. He bowed, and said to me, j "Sweetheart, the dinner is served." | "What?" 1 stammered, aghast at his familiarity. ! "Dinner is served, deary." answered j the new cook. Lawyer: What Is your occupation? | Witness. I am a piano finisher. Lawyer: Bo a little more definite. Do you polish them or move them?

THE SICK MAN AND HIS FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

THE SICK MAN AND HIS FRIENDS. First Friend: Feeling run down, eh? Now, take my advice-tie a boiled onion between your eyes; it's the only thing that will cure you. Second Friend: My boy, what you want to do is to put a cold poker down your back under your shirt-and paint your arm with lampblack-it's the only remedy that's any good. Third Friend: Oh, I know what's wrong, my boy. My mother said that sunflowers tied around the waist and a lump of lard on the head were the best things in the world for it. Fourth Friend: In all my experience I never knew banana rinds tied around the knee to fail to cure. Wife: Yes, John, dear, all these things may be good, but there's noth ing like this tonic my grandmother used to make of vinegar, sulphur, ben zine, sugar, zinc rust, and cobwebs. Now take some, darling. He has tried them all, and is still uncured.

High Courage. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

High Courage. In a town in Belguim was lately re corded an act of courageous self-con trol and presence of mind which may be compared to advantage with the honors won by deeds of daring on the i field of battle. Two workmen were engaged fixing a lightning conductor on the summit of the steeple at Ville-sur-Outhe. To accomplish this somewhat difficult and delicate task. It was necessary that one of the workmen should stand on the shoulders of his companion, i While in this position, a violent gust of wind made him spill some molten lead, which fell on the hand and fore j arm of his friend. Notwithstanding the sudden intensity of the pain thus i inflicted, the victim of the accident had the courage to remain motionless while the lead burnt its way into his flesh. He knew that the slightest movement might suffice to precipitate his companion from a height of seven ty feet into the street below, and he bravely endured the pain rather than imperil the life of his fellow work er.

AGRICULTURE. HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

AGRICULTURE HOW TO USE MANURE MOST PROFITABLY. Some of the Natural Laws with which the User of Manure must Co-operate. From time immemorial (the editor of the Twentieth Century Farmer writes) it has been almost the univer sal custom to spread manure over the surface of the soil, and then plough it under. Generation after generation of farmers have followed the custom without seriously thinking whether this method was the host method to be employed. Humans are controlled more or less by custom and habit, which they accept and adopt unthinkingly, on the assumption that whatever is, is right, and that what always has been done is support ed by some good reason, and there fore should be continued to be done. Study of Natural Conditions Necessary. Every farmer should know for him self precisely why he does what he does. In this matter of manure, if the farmer regularly year after year ploughs manure under, he should not do so unthinkingly, but should know why he does it, and then try to ...

MEN WHO ELOPE WITH THEIR OWN WIVES. And Sometimes Don't Know It. A short time back a distinguished French painter discovered that his wife was inserting in the columns of iier favorite journal advertisements, setting forth that she was desirous of corespouding with an eligible widower or bachelor.

A FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

A FALLACIOUS ARGUMENT. There are some farmers who seem to care but little how rough and coarse the cattle they feed may bj, provided they get them at a low price, and their argument la that cattle bought in at a low price are hound to got away from it. That may be true, but how long are they about it? What do they cost in food-stuffs, and how much less per pound do they rea lise when sold as compared with cat tle of breeding and quality. It must be borne in mind that cattle that are well bred and that have been well treated from their birth have had more than half the work done to them by their breeders, and when thsy pass into the feeders' hands to be fin ished off, they are a very short time about it, and, moreover, turn to the very best account every ounce of food given to them, and will thrive better on a given quantity that coarsely-bred animals will on double that quantity The difference, therefore, in feeding cattle of good breeding and those of a coarse, rough nature is that...

WEAR BECOMING COLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

WEAR BECOMING COLORS. It Is not every woman who under stands the art and necessity of har monising colors. She is apt to be swayed too much by the decrees of fashion when selecting shades for a new hat or dress, and the result, more often than not, is great contrasts, which accentuate instead of hide de fects of the face and figure. The woman who desires to look her best must selcct only those colors which will be helpful to her. Women differ so much in form and coloring that each must be a law unto her self. There is the fair and florid woman, the thin and sallow woman. Another type is neither stout nor thin, per haps, but colorless and faded, a strik ing contrast to the highly-colored dark woman, whose pink cheeks have changed to a dull red. Tailing the fair and florid, a type generally inclined toward obesity, she. may be said to be fairly safe if six will adopt dark colors or shades below the bust-lino, and select those near her face with a view to becomingness. Pale blue, perha...

COUGH GENTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

COUGH GENTLY. Few people know how to cough Dro perly. It never occurs to tlie ordin ary individual that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. Yet it is a matter of 110 small import ance. If every sigh means a drop of blood out of the heart, as people say, every cough means some greater or less proportion of time knockcd olf one's life. Most people cough as loud ly and forcibly as they can. But ir is rather costly noise, for the single reason that it tears and inflames thi llings. The lungs consist of an extra ordinary delicate sponge-like tissui-. which sometimes gets inflamed and choked with phlegm. When we try to get rid of this substance wo cough. But obviously, if we remove it vio lently, we must necessarily injure tin; delicate lung tissue. Therefore train yourself to cough as gently as pos sible.

It was the wife of an elder ly farmer who had died, and just as the cortege was about to leave the house for the church, both mourners and the undertaker's men were, to say the least, startled by seeing the widower-a sturdy type of a farmer mount the box-seat of the hearse, ant! gather up the reins.

THE VALUE OF SILOS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 6 August 1914

THE VALUE OF SILOS. Every year, in all parts of Austra lia, there Is a shortage of succulent fodder from late summer to early spring, but, by the aid of the silo, cattle can, with profit, be tided over this time of stress. The dairy returns can be kept up-prices for dairy pro duce ore highest in the lean times. Silage, therefore, keeps up the dairy returns, keeps the stock healthy and thriving, enables the farmer to carry more stock, spurs him on to better efforts in all his farming pursuits by increasing the profits of the farm, and aids in keeping up the fertility of the soil. No one who has fed sil age to his stock would hesitate r. mo ment before stating that farm is not complete without a silo. Throughout the whole of the State every spring there is an abundance of growth which goes to waste. A few weeks later it would be of great bene fit and assistance to the animals on the farm in enabling them to digest the hard, dry, innutritious fodder at their disposal, which is only eat...

When they charge you in court with seating the goose, And taking it home in a sack, You must try and look "balmy" and. wink your right eye, Flap your arms and reply, "Quack! quack! quack!" The ruse was successful, the jury agreed That the lad-he was not in his "twenties" Who spoke like a goose, must have brains like a goose, In fact, he was "non compos men tis." Said the Judge, "You're discharged! But take hoed what I say, Be careful you never come back! And the prisoner looked "balmy," and winked his right eye, Flapped his arms and replied, "Quack! quack! quack!" The lawyer said, "Sir!
