The Oldest Living Animal. In tho da^s when Elizabeth was at the height of her power there was born a turtle in the island of Aldabra, which is situated between Madagas car and Mozambique.

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 February 1898

How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local oilico your general printing ; if you do nob feel ablo to rim an advertisement, surely you can afford to give tho newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute.
