WAITING FOR THE WAR TO END. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
| WAITING FOR'THE WAR TO END. j A touching and inspiring incident, ' illustrative of the spirit o£ France during the present period of stress, is described in "By Motor to the Fir ing Line." The author is Mr. Walter Hale, a veteran etcher, motorist, and illustrator of numerous books of tra vel, and he relates his experiences from an artist's point of view:-? "Upon- one occasion I went with a friend into a small lithographer's shop in the Rue Madame. For days I had been searching Paris for a cer tain kind of paper that comes from Austria-twice before I had found the same shop closed. Now a bell tinkled inside, a bolt was shot back and the door opened slowly. A man of middle age appeared out of the darkness and asked us to enter. He limped slightly, and was timid and nervous. He seemed to crave com pany. We rummaged through long drawers for the paper we wanted, and among the shelves for paper and ink. The man took us about the shop. The presses and work-tables were carefully dusted, t...
The Real Education for a Boy [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
The Real Education for a Boy Some very interesting reminiscen ces of His boyhood, related by Sir William ran Home, the actual build er of the Canadian Pacific Railway, are given by S. MacNaugliton In a recent article published in the "Corn hill": "The best thing a boy can do," Sir. William said, "is to collect. "Let him collect .something-I don't care what it is-and you will find he be gins to notice, and £rom noticing he begius to classify and to arrange. In terest develops, and wherever he goes there is nothing connected with his collection about which he is not keenly interested. The real educa tion for a boy is simply a matter of impressions. These cannot be se lected for him, but they color the whole of his life." "We were anxious to know at what age a boy may reasonably be expect-' oii to take an interest in collections, and learned from Sir William that he himself began at the age of two and a-lialf years. "1 had," he said, "a collection oi bright pebbles which were my great ...
Paying Off Our War Debts [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
Paying Off Our War DebU Ill the course or an article on "The National Need for Modern Busiues. ISquipment," which appears in a re cent number of "System," Lord Khondda says there is only one way o paying off the accumulated debt.-: incurred by this war, and that i-i t:> make goods and sell them. The more goods we can make, and the more quickly we can sell them, the more rapidly will the war debt and all thdt it means in retarding industry .be wiped oft. "Heavy taxation," i.c points out, "will tend to drive both mobile capital and the best ol labor out-of the country. We have got to get both of them back. We have go; to produce more than we now pro duce. And to do this we have got to organise the nation in a big effort ol industrial production. Nothing else can again secure to us the premier place in the markets of the world. Now we Juiow, from our muiiitkn making experiences, that, our iiuivi. trial population can produce more per man than it did before the war. The question is, ...
CROWNS THAT HAVE BEEN IN PAWN. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
CROWNS THAT HAVE BEEN PAWN. Germany and Austria will be pretty hard up when the war comes to an end, and all manner of schemes will probably have to be adopted to scraps money together. Perhaps the royal treasures of the War Lord and the Austrian Emperor will be sold or pawned. Such things have happened irefore. But how far the price of a crown would go towards paying off the enormous cost of modern warfare remains to be proved. It is interest ing to recall that the crown donned by the monarch of Austria, which wan made originally for Stephen of Hun gary some eight centuries ago, has been stolen, lost and pawned. On one occasion It was pilfered by a queen, who fled across the frozen Danube with it. and, being in need of ready cash, she pawned it for 2.S00 ducats. When it was finally traced and recov ered it was placed in a fortress in Hungary, and guarded night and day by a specially selected body of nobly horn soldiers. At the time of the Revolution it was buried in a forest to pre...

POULTRY MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
POULTRY MEMS. Do not breed from weak or un healthy birds. Greater fertility and stronger chicks are obtained by giv ing the breeders plenty of exercise, j Therefore, provide tuem with a good grass run. It is %vise to feed males away from the hens. Better to hatch a dozen .chickens from one good hen that 100 from in ferior hens. To be successful in rear ing chickens one of the principal re quirements is frequent changing on to new ground. It matters not how well you feed them, if they are left on tainted soil they will surely become diseased, and though some may live I they will be worthless. 1 In applying powder, hold the fowl by the feet, head down, and work the 1 powder well into the' feathers. | Feed the chickens about five times daily, and only what they will cat up | clean in a few minutes, except at ! night, when they should receive all 1 they want. | When a girl is in love her thoughts are about equally divided between the last time she saw him and the next itime he is coming...

The Referendum. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
The Referendum. After months of agitation and a most vigorous campaign tUe great question : " Are you in favour of the Government having, in this grave emergency, the same compulsory powers over citizens in regard to requiring their military service (for tbe term of this war, outside the Commonwealth as it now has in regard to Military Service within the Commouwealtli ?" was put to the people of Australia on Saturday last, October 28. The Hedernl Ministry was split upon the question and, very early, it was evident that it was not regarded as a party question, for Labourites and Liberals spoke from the same platforms in favour of the question being answered in the affirm ative. They also spoke from the same platforms and urged the electors to vote " No." With nothing, in the monetary sense, to gain from their support of or opposition to the question, committees and speakers threw themselves into the campaign with a self-abnegatory en thusiasm which was remarkable. That self interest ...

Accounted For. "What! another cup of tea, Mr. Dumley?" ex-claimed the landlady, as he passed his cup for the third time. "I am delighted to see that you are enjoying your supper." "Yes," responded Dumley. "I was quite hungry to-night, and the tea tastes unusually good." "Not very complimentary to me," went on the landlady, with a sort of second-class, genteel little 'laugh. "I generally make the tea myself, but to-night I was busy about something I else, and the cook made it. I wonder i what she could have put in it?" ""Well," responded Dumley, as he j stirred it gently with his spoon, "I should judge from the taste that she must have put some tea in it."
Mixed Compliment. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 3 November 1916
Mixed Compliment. A Canadian visitor tells ail amus ing yarn about a noted Scottish sing er who is usually much appreciated when he crosses to the U.S.A. Once, however, at a matinee in an "exclu sive" district of Boston his reception was almost chilling. However, as the recital proceeded, he noticed.an old man, witli a char acteristic Scot's .face, beaming up on him from the audience; so he sang to that man alone, knowing he had one delighted hearer. At the end of the concert the vet eran asked and obtained an introduc tion to the vocalist, and thus address ed him: "Ah, mon, but I was glad to- see your honest Scotch face; of course, I didna' hear your singing, as I'm stone deaf." When may a man he said to be thoroughly sewn up?-When lie has pins and needles in his foot and a stitch in his side.
