OF RURAL INTEREST (By "llustious.") "Our Vanishing Moat Supply" is thu heading under wliiou a leading Sun Francisco paper discusses the prospect ol a meat tauiino 111 the United Staves. Taint such a prospect actually exibts is admitted and deplored by tbo great meat slaughterers and packers of the .Middle West. It is a matter of seri ous portent to tho United States; but other stock-raising countries of tho world stand to bouefit immensely, es pecially in view of tho tariff reduction that weut into effect quite recently. If the i'cars of tho wholesale meat dealers of America are as well-found ed, thero is no limit to tho quantity of frozen mutton and beef from Aus tralia and Ncmv Zealand that the Unit ed State can absorb. Fur seven or eight years past tho price ot meat has been high with a constant tendency to increaso rather than depreciate. In tho ensuing similar period, thero will be a further advance, according t0 every .sign. Tho possibility of a meat faiuino has been brought p...

VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 7 January 1914
VILLAGE PHILOSOPHY. •Somo fellows never show up very well at home, and always a good deal worse when abroad. A good rain in tho nick of timo makes a farmer feel liko a newly ap pointed democratic postmaster. When tho title of D.D. goes to a preacher's head it is a misfit. Ono can seo a good many things even through a knot liolo if lie keeps his eyes open. Tho most of us could out down our living expenses considerably if our neighbors would do tho same. Tho importance of a quarrel is never measured by tho noiso of it. With soino men, no colebratiun is worth whilo which doesn't rtfquiro sev eral days to get over tho effects of it. Few may play with tho devil and win. it Among the blind, tho ono-oyod is king. A horse's strength, roughly sneak ing, is equal to that of i-bout five men. \Vo have never too rnuoh timo for gladdening tho hearts of thoso who aro travelling tho journey of Jifo with us. If a man does not make now acquain tances as ho advances through life, ho will soon find lii...
REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 7 January 1914
REWARDS. It is beneath tlie dignity of those ! who can a-ilord to set an artificial value upon their dignity to take a reward for finding lost property ? The pre sent writer has put this question to many men and women during the past fortnight, and they liave almost ail I replied, after different methods of otr ; eumlocution, that it depends upon the amount. The answer is not logical, but it is natural and .it has some rea son in it. The speaker~or course, lay themselves open to hard words, li they would not take ten shillings for finding a worthless trinket, why should they not refuse £10,000 for finding | lost treasure? Do they require to be paid not to steal? if they would not take a small gratuity, why snould they take a large one? After all, a (tip is a tip, whatever the coin or tho | figure. Do they mean that every 'man's dignity has its price? That is no doubt what they do mean, and all these tauuts are fair; but it remains truo that quite as good people would accept the rewa...
TO THE EDITOR QUAMBATOOK. "TIMES." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 7 January 1914
To the Editor Quambatoos "Times." Dear Sir. — While thanking you for publishing my previous letter I could not thank Secretary Coughlan for such a very unsatis factory answer to it. He said " that we played under League Rules and that the permission of the League was obtained before the men were played.'' The rule No. 8, under which Lai bait pro tested read as follows "An umpire whose services have bean dispensed \?ith, Or whoso resig nation has becin Accepted by the Permit and Unlpire Conlmitfee, may be granted a permit on or before the first day of July," and as the two umpire-players um pired. up .till the end of July I would ask him what rule they were granted a permit under; also the date of the meeting granting same, as an umpire could not hold a permit to play while he was umpiring, and the rule says on or before July 1st. It will re quire a different answer to that given by the secretary,' and, if ha looks up his minute book he will find that-the Lalbert clele ,gates:,.;,wer...

SATAN'S KINGDOM. Stands Scotland where it did? It would seem not if a statement in a recent issue of the United Free Church is true, or anvthing near the truth. Mr H. M. Barnet, a hyrnau, of Kirk caldy, is represented as saying: "The population (of tlie district about K,r'?J caldy) is seriously outgrowing j?hurch organisation, The kingdom of satan is growing by leaps and bounds. 'ib° deities thero are whippet, football, drink, and the devil. A large pro portion of tho population ore as com pietelr "heathen as the savages oi dar kest Africa. A great many hare no regard for God and man. 'Ibat is due. very largely, to the vagrant pop ulation, half Irish and half Scotch, which is about th 4 worst combination in the -world.
