War Savings Groups. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

War Savings Groups. THE result of the formation of War Savings Groupt throughout business houses amongst employees cannot but succeed in making an appreciable increase in the amount which will be eventually raised by the sale of war savings certificates. The response which the organisers are re ceiving is most encouraging, but there is still ample scopo in all avenues of life in the community for further groups. A few necessary books and members cards are supplied free through the various committees, and all assistance afforded in the formation. Members pay small regular weekly, fortnightly, or monthly ciibsc-iptions at will, and tho group purchases the £1 certificates for every 37/0 so subscribed, and allots tliem to members as their sub scriptions reach this amount. I'here is 110 necessity to go beyond one's own place of business to subscribe in such an instance, which is also a decided ad vantage to employees with restricted time at their disposal in which to go to a 13nnk or Pos...

The English. BY AN IRISH-AMERICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

The English. BY AN IRISH-AMERICAN. I WAS not brought, up to love England. Irish-Americans seldom aro. In my child hood tales of English tyranny, of the oppression nf Ireland, were dinned into my ears until I grew to bate everyono and everything British worae than the devil hates holy water. In oar parlour hung my two favorite pictures, one of Robert Emmet standing in his green and white uniform on the aciriL'-1,), the other depicting the arreat .if Lord Edward Fitz gerald. How often, an a hoy, have I gazed at them nnd longed to die as those heroes did for Ireland ! My father and my uncles had been Fenians in tho old country ; my mother's brother had been imprisoned for weekB in Richmond Ilrideivell in Dublin after the tight with the police at Fallaght. And the folks that visited my home wore as rabid on the subject of England as my own family. I would sooner have had a nigger as a friend than a subject of Queen Victoria.

If they have not actually read the story in the Arabian Nights, they havo aeon the plot enacted at tho Christmas Pan tomime. Many a time wo have wished that wo had this Lamp, if only for a fe^ moments, so that we might com mand its Genie to bring us just what wa wished, for. . Something, in short, that would brighten up our homes, our per sonal: appearance," and our lives. How few, on the othor hand, realise that ? the,Genie spirit is really a living spirit . jwithmj; ourselves' called, by the world; - Geiiifis'rr . :Ho\v...: few understand that thero is tho evil as well as the good Gonic.

Jokes. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 July 1917

Jokes. Laughter is akin to" tears. A schoolboy's definition of a joke was given as "something which we laugh at when it happens 'o somebody else which would make us cry if it hap pened to ourselves." Many people smile when an acquaintance has gout, toothache, or is sea-sick, but it iB hard for the sufferer to see where the fun comes in. The common ail ments of life are anything but fit subjects for mirth. Think of the ^thousands of people who suffer from 'rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lumba go, backache, sciatica, blood disor ders, anaemia, indigestion, bilious ness, jaundice, sick-headache, gen eral debility, gravel, stone and blad der troubles. They certainly are not subjects for laughter. In most in stances they are unaware that their suffering probably is due to defective action of the kidneys and liver. When the kidneys and liver actively fulfil their functions, uric and biliary waste poisons, manufactured in the system of these poisons which, fre quently, is the root cause of t...
