One day this nurse brought the baby into my mother's room and put him on the floor, whioh was carpeted all over. There he crept about and amused him self; according to his lights.

Corn as Fuel. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 March 1914

Corn as Fu<zl, Some people seem to be horrified when they hear of corn being used for fuel. Now, if corn is cheaper than coal, what posssble objection can there be to using it fGr fuel? A Kansas farmer can get thirteen cents for a bushel of corn. Let ■is sec, that is $3.70 for a ton. To get that lie may have to haul his corn six or eight miles to market. If he buys coal lie will pay from to $5 a ton, and haul it the six or eight miles back home. The mat tor simply comes down to the ques tion of how he can get the most effective fuel for a dollar. You could hardly ex pect a farmer to pay a bonus in order that he might burn coal if he could get the heat some other way.*® Corn at $3.70 a ton is cheaper fuel than coal at $5 a ton, and, besides, it has in its favor tho fact that the farmer has the corn at home. There is 110 more reason for a sentimen tal objection to burning corn than thero is to burning wood.—[Chicago Tribune. EASILY OBTAINED. ] Count Von Ennione—Your euormou...

Wholesome Vegetables. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 March 1914

Wholesome Vegetables. Th'c following information may ba useful to some, it not new to many: Spinach has a direct effect upon the kidneys: The common dandelion, used as green3, is excellent: for the same trouble. Asparagus purges the blood. Celery acts admirably upon the nervous system, and is a cure for rheumatism and neural gia. Tomatoes act upon the liver. Beets and turnips are excellent appe tizers. Lettuce and cucumbers arc cooling in their effects upon the system. Onions, garlic, leeks, olives, and shal ots, all of which are similar, possess medi cinal virtues of a marked character, stimulating the circulatory system and the consequent increase of the saliva and the gastric juice, promoting diges tiou. Red onions are an excellent diuretic-, and. the white ones are recommended to be eaten raw as a remedy for insom nia. They are a tonic and nutritious, A soup made from onions is regarded by the French as an excellent restorativo in debility of the digestive orgaus.
