HER MILKING PAIL. When Doris took her hulking-pail To cross the dewey meadow; The eastern sky was golden pale, The valley lay in shadow; ; [ followed slowly, not too near,.... . And softly, lest the maid should hear. The wet, white daisies bent to touch Her slender foot, and kiss it; [ envied them this pleasure much,' Since I'd been doomed to miss it; And thought the flowers were treated far i .More kindly than some lovers are. Uehinil a thorn 1 stood to watch Her coax the cow and chide her; And humming at a merry catch, : Set the small stoo". beside tier; J While freshly, as she could have wished, ? ' The milk through dimpled fingers swished. Thought I, "This chance I ' must not miss! .

The Origin of Adults. Why Army Doctors To-day Are Rejecting Men Who Were Spoilt in the Making Twenty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
The Origin of Adults. Why Army Doctors To-day Are Rejecting Men Who Were Spoilt in the Making Twenty Years Ago. By Dr. C. W. Saleeby. War is beginning to teach the statesmen and peoples of Europe how to value the greatest and noblest of the arts of peace, "the making of per fect soldiers," as Walt Whitman says; not only for the dreadful work of war, but. for the victories of peace. After a lone struggle every one of the fighting nations has learnt the beginnings of the tremendous truth as to the longest price of war. Whether the nutkn be wrong or right, whether aggressor or defender, whether des tined to win or to lose, it is feeling the pinch of war upon .its own real wealth-the healthy life, and espe cially, in this ease, the healthy man hood of its people. In peace, not one whit less than in war, nations live by this only real wealth; but war illuminates old truths very suddenly and luridly. War drains away that which a na tion 'needs most far faster than it can be replaced, and ...

The Winners. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
The Winners. By "Gilrooney." | "The world lias no time for the losers." That, dear sinners, is one of the eternal verities, as true as truth, and as old as the earth itself. In the jungle, by the ethics of Jungle Law, the beast that loses is eaten. If a beast wins he eats the loser; .if he loses he is eaten by the victor. It is a very simple law, and one against which there is and can be no appeal. And the same old law holds good in the jungle of humanity. We profoss to be very magnanimous and prida ourselves on being "sports," but deep ; down in our being, the old Jungle j Law, which is older than Adam, holds ! good and laughs at the veneers, the | polishes and the conventions" of civi-1 lisation. j True, we have our asylums, our liov j pitals, and our poor-houses. \Vlu::i j we drive our brothers mad, or maim j and afflict them, or deny them their j daily bread, we place them in t.bos>:' institutions, and delude ourselves : into the belief that we have done the' square thing. We...

Poor, But Proud. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Poor, But Proud. He was a real live duke, and a big employer of labor. Bob Willet never cared to earn his bread by the sweat of his brow, and it was small wonder that his ducal lord and master took occasion to inform him tliat his services would be no longer required. Bob was bitterly averse to sucl treatment, and resolved to have it out with "the dooli." A favorable oppor tunity presented itself to his mind, for had not the duchess been appoint ed a lady-in-waiting to the Queen? "All- right, yer grace," he said, sar castically. "I'll go, even if it's against the grain. But I'll say this to you, sir-though I'm a poor man, I've never had to send my missus out to service, and that's more'n some people can say!" . .
CHAPTER XXI. A New Ally [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
CHAPTER XXI. A New Ally Heimsley Arden, a tall, spare, bronzed man of fifty, sat, in a suit of white drill, cross-legged in an easy chair, smoking a long, cherry-wood I'ipe, with his keen, grey eyes fixed attentively upon his guest's face. It was characteristic of the man that he kept the best cigars for his friends, while he himself smoked shag. His "hermitage"-a while bungalow, on the summit of one of the lesser heights of the South Downs-was' roomy and comfortable, but lacking in many of the superfluities consid ered essential in an age of luxury. It was the home of a man accustomed to "do without"-of one who had spent much of his time in soldiers1 rents and gold miners' shacks, and who had reduced the art of house keeping to a science that eliminated everything that, in his estimation, could be designated "flummery." To I a woman's eye his abode might have appeared bare; but there was no wo man in the house. An ex-soldier was his only servant. Franklin had arrived at the bunga l...

A Crop of Perplexities. la Piccadilly Franklin met Augus tine Warren. The young clergyman came towards liim with a certain air of diffidence, as if lie would rather have passed on without recognition. "Why, Warren,'' exclaimed Frank liK, "you're a rare visitor to London, aren't you?" "I very seldom come up," replied Warren, "and only urgent business brings me now." Tliere was, to Franklin's mind, cer tainly a hint of embarrassment in the vicar's manner; and suddenly Skip ton's words came bank to/him-"But for his cloth, I should suggest he was trying to throw dust in your i.ves." The man with the scarred face was in London-Franklin had had docu mentary proof of that, and now War ren was hero. Was his business to warn that miscreant? The insistent question presented itself again: Was Warren in league with ...
Heroism at Home. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
Heroism at Home. Attired in a morning robe of deli cate lace, she heeded not the bitter 1 tears that chased each other along the bridge of her nose and splashed upon the fried eggs that lay with the sunny side up before her. Regret fully, her glance rested upon her hus band, who sat opposite, nervously toy ing' with his spoon. "No, Annibel,' he was saying, "I do not care for any of the baking-powder biscuits you made with your own hands." "George," she faltered, "did you not say before we were married " A sob temporarily choked her ut terance. "Th-that you would gladly die for me?" "Did I say that?" lie eagerly de manded. "You did, George." "Annabel," he " said, in a hollow tone; "I am a man of my word. Can I trouble you to pass those baking powder biscuits? Thank you." And wjthout another word he court ed death.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 8 December 1916
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If hard fruit is just covered with cold water, brought quickly to the boil and the wafer then drained off and the cooking started afresh, very little sugar will be needed. To clean the pipe of the scullery sink add a teaspoonful of powdered ammonia to two tablespoonfuls of soda, and pour over it a gallon of boil ing water. This will dissolve any greast in the sink. To keep salt from becoming damp and lumpy, when filling the salt-cel lars add several grains of rice. These will absorb the moisture, and the salt will keep dry and fine. When baking fruit pies or tarts, before putting in the fruit, brush over the lining of pastry with milk. This causes the flour to cling together and the juice will not run out. New patent leather shoes, rubbed all over with a little vaseline put on with a piece of soft flannel and polish ed, will never crack. Patent leather should be kept in a warm, dry place, and should not be worn on wet days. Matting will look all the brighter if it i...

Overseas Tobacco Fund. HOW TO SEND GIFTS. To some members of llio public the ap peals which continually are being made for comforts for the troops appear to be never ending. They are never ending-at least they will not end until the last Bhot has been fired and the last trench captured Until then the troops will continue to want comforts and the greatest of all theBe is, and always will be, tobacco. The messages of the men themselves con vey this as peihapB nothing else could. "A good smoke ranks next to a letter from homo" was the message of Capt. R W. Thomson of the 2nd. Section, A I F " Ammunition carrying,'' ho added, " iB a rather heavy task with a fiir clement of danger, but travelling at night ia made much easier if one has a pipe or n cigarette.'1 Nothing could be more definite than that a good Bmoke and a loiter from homo, the two ore ranked together. That fact speaks volumes. But, while the tobacco needs of the men on active service are urgent, the task of buying, packing ...
