STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 7 January 1915

- STRANCER THAN FICTION. (Br PtrnR.) Several points-not pints-of rain have fallen lately on Lower Cape Bridgewater. This will enlarge the little potatoes. The water tanks will also be replenished unless a spider in the downpipe scoffs is before it gets there. A most remarkable circuam stance about this down pour is that there was a considerable amount of humidity in tes a'mosphere during the visitation and the dryness that hbad prevailed for weeks past was completely broken up. One of the oldest residents has been heard to say "IL's gen'ly wet when it rains." However, this may be, it is a most remarkatle coincidence thabt the whole surface of the corrugated iron roofs and even the spouting was dripping with moisture. A bush fire ;at the back of Palmer's paddock-there always seems to be a fire there-sud denly sent up dense volumes of black smoke, intermingled with white steam and then subsided, an example which the rain immediately followed.

Lte as pity the poor publican. He has no mother to bring him milk, no wife to grind his corn. In this connection I oace knew a ruffian who boasted that he had no heart, and proved it, though he lost a wager. Thie wager was that he could not answer yes to three questions, especially the last one. The first, "Hiave you been in jail?" met only si'ht hesitation. The second, "Sup posing you were driving in your com fortable motor car tver a bleak moor on a wild stormy day and you saw a poor shivering little girl (or publician as the case may be) sheltering her wasted form from the piercing wind be hind a tree, with a loaf of bread beside her that she had bought with her last peony, and was takling it home'to her dying mother, would you have the...

GREAT RUSSIAN VICTORY. London, Jan. 7. The story of the terrih'oe defeat in flicted by the Russians on the Turks in the Caucasus is told. Although abundantly provided witlh supplies at their base, the Turks under took a sudden mnovernment aatinst the Russians at ~arLVkanlsl?h tcross moun tainous roads covered with snow and over steep ridges, alnost without con voys for their supply, and with prac tically no field artillery. They relied chiefly on the sympathy and liberal help of the native Mlussul mans, who had been approached pre viously by Turkish enmis.saries. The Turks (9th andI 10th Army Corps), who were nearly 90,000 strong, outnumbered the Russians by 10 to 1. They adopted German tactics, attack ing the Russian front and flanks simnu taneous!y. Then they swarmed down steep gorges on the mountain side, and, waist deep in snow, half naked; ragged, and frozen, they attacked the Russians. The Russians. reserved their fire until the enemy wnt within 400 yarts of them. Then thsy op...
