This will remove the rust, and then you may polish your irons just as usual. When making Yorkshire 'pudding and pancakes, mix the flour with water instead of milk, break the egg into the basin, and 'beat all together thoroughly. It will ibe found much lighter and cheaper, less milk being required. Before baking apples, pour boiling water over them. JPut a littje water in the dish they are b -ked in. Cook. slowly.

BE JUST TO THE LITTLE ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914

BE JUST TO THE LITTLE ONES. Children are, very just little souls and they ulwaya know when they have been unfairly treated IE a chilc once gets into his head the notion that mother either scolds or kisses him according to her own state of mind at the moment, he will never afterwards respect her authority. All that he will do is to keep out of the tvay when she seems "cross," or brag and fib alternately about his doings, in a way that is almost bound to ruin his character. But if he knows that mother is always fair to him, he will respect and love her, and try to please her, so that naughtiness and punish ment become the exception ratUev than the rule in the house over which books as will give her the most use she rules so wisely and firmly.

WATERPLANE ACCIDENT EARONESS VAUGHAN AND CHILD [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914

WATERPLANE ACCIDENT ' EAUONISSS VAUGHAN AND CHILD Tlie Baroness Vaughan, widow of the late King Leopold, had an exciting ex perience white making: a flight with Maicon, the French aviator, at Beau licu-sur-Mer. Maicon had made several flights over the sea, says "The Now York Herald" Claris edition), with various passen ecrs. He was making his last flight jf the afternoon with the Baroness Van Khan and one of her children, when, is the hydro-aeroplane was leaving the water, one of the floats struck the summit of a wave. The shock broke one of the stays of the float, which flew up and hit the rapidly-revolving pro peller, the blades of which were smashed. The accident cauted the aeroplane to lose its stability, and it dropped back into the sea, heeling over on one wing. An auto-boat from La Reserve at once went out and rescued the passengers, after which it towed the damaged aero plane back to its shed. The Baroness anil her child were by 110 means upset by the mishap.

EYE-OPENERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914

EYE-OPENERS. A good remedy for scaly leg:—Kero sene, two parts; castor oil, two parts; boracic acid, one part. Mix and let stand for 21 hours. Well rub into leg, with two days between each applica tion, until cured. When keeping fowls in small runs, an extra plot of ground should be re served for the growing of green feed, which is indispensable if the birds are to do well and keep well. Use crushed charcoal in the yards and you will have healthy birds. It is a splendid internal cleansing agent. The bowels are the best indicators of condition. When the droppings are with white, the general health is good and the food is right. The world doesn't judge a man 'by his own clothes, but by his wife's. A broken heart takes about three sides of an argument. No man is so greedy as to take iboth Ut 3A[J put! UAVO} UI pUSUI 0} SJ[9D,li country.

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914

FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. One of the findings of sciencc on tlit: subject of poultry-keeping is that a nen requires one-rituetn of her weignt in food every day to maintain aer uodily vigor. So, if a hen weigha oil), -loz. thu daily allowance of food ought to be L'ois. Hut that allows noth ing tor ttie manufacture of the egg. .-v nen in lull lay is asamed to lay -luo/.. in a wek. As tiu per cent, of an egg is water, mat means that at least iois. more food must be allowed. a sale rule is to allow laying hens about 3oz. ot food per day. In con iineu runs, much more care has to be amen to give a well-balanced ration man wnen the fowls ruu free. In tho latter case ttie birds seldom become too tat, and they keep themselves in nealui iby eating a variety ot" green tood, which acts as a corrective to all sons of complaints to which other iowis are subject.

CHEERFUL EVER! [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 April 1914

CHEERFUL EVER! It's good we can say, with a sigh and a smile: "Times will be better after awhile! The light will stream through the clouds o'erhead, And flowers will bloom where the thorns were red!" What of the sigh, if we say with u smile: "Times will be better after awhile?" It's a long, long way to the light o{ day; Dut winter gives ever a promise of May, And ever we dream, in the darkest night: "The joy will come with the morning light!" Even in our sorrow we say •with a smile: "Times will ibe better after awhile!" "Times will be better!" Ia joy and woe Is it not sweeter to sing them so? Sweeter to dream, when the dark'a o'er the blue, The eyes of the angels are looking at you? Away with the sigh, then, and sweet be the smile, "Times will be 'better after awhile!"

PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently suitered capita! punish | ment iu Prussia, because only some I lour to eight per cent, at' capital sen I tences are carried out in Germany, tlie I proportion in Great Britain being over ou per cent. iTIie newspapers common ly speak of these German criminals as victims of the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beheading, but it is left to the separate States to choose their own method, in those districts which were annexed by Napoleon 1. the guil lotine still prevails. Other , regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving knife if they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep of a long sword.
