Random Readings. EXCUSABLE CONFUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
j Random Readings. I EXCUSABLE CONFUSION. ODO who construes strictly tho words which aro found in ancient story and song may not infrequently read into tho text a meauiug ex- actly opposite to that which tho writer attempted to convey. A little study of sonic of these words almost convinces ona, says a student of words, that black may bo whito, and vico versa, lt is related that in tho panie of 1857 a frenchman in Now York said ho feared ho should lose all his "propriety." Wo smile at Uris, and yet we learn that "pro- priety" and "property" have oxactly tho samo French dorivation. We hear ono speak of an "anecdoto" and know that a short, diverting story is reforred to. Etymologically it means something as yet unpub- lished. To provont, which is now to hinder, meant in its Latin origi- nal to anticipate. A girl was anciently a young person of either sox. Paradiso, in Oriental tongues, moa nt only a royal ark. A knavo was once merely a lad, and a villain only a peasant. To bo silly wa...

For Young Folks. JIM'S NEW PHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
For Young Folks. JfM'S NEW PHASE. Mrs. Dillon was one of those ir Julgtnt mothers who are so la about administering deserved pun ishment that their very kindness bt comes an evil. She had Studie books on child-rearing, and eoul' lecture for hours on the stages o growth through which a boy pass es betsveea childhood and man hood. So every questionable ac that her son Jim did she attributei to some natural "phase througl which he was passing, and smiled and allowed it to go unrebuked. She would send him on an urgen errand, and when he came bael only in time for supper, bearinr. signs of a long swim in the river she would sigh at his unfaithfulness but say: "Oh, he'll grow out of i in a few years. He's just pnssinf. through a phase." When she sent him to dig a pai of potatoes, and lie stayed lonj enough to clean the whole field then brought in barely enough po tames for dinner, she would genttj inquire if he was tired, and rewarc him with cake, and promise herseli that he would have mo...
Poisoning Mystery Explained [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
Poisoning Mystery Explained The following are the particulars of the mysterious death, on Decem- ber 31th of an engaged couple (Grace Loeser and Charles Twigg) in Maryland U.S.A., under circum- stances which suggested that they had been poisoned. They had'Oiti mited suicide, or, perhaps, eaten sweets sent by_some jealous rival. A different complexion is put on thc story by a discovery, reported in the "Daily Telegraph." made by Dr Liitlelieki, of Cumberland, Mary- land. In the diawingroom of thc Lo sers home home lie found a small square gass stove, with a brok- en mica door, there being a little apcture through which tum-s could escape. Dr Littlefu-ld had b en making a study of Carbon Monoxide and concluded that might have been thc cause of death. Carbon monox- ide is a product of impef'ect com- bustion, and is said to be so deadly that one-ha'f of one per cent in a small room will cause death.

PIMPLES ON THE FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 18 March 1911
1MMIM.ES ON THE FACE. Facial eruptions often caiujc moro worry and montai misery to those af- flicted with this form of disease than do more serious disorders. It is a mark of shame to a moro or less extent, indicating a continued broach of tho simple laws of hy- giene. Those who attempt to romovo pim- ples usually uso only temporary methods, ('nhl cream or some nt her lotion is used, which heals them pre- maturely, but this is only a transi- tory euro, and as a result tho erup- tions reappear in as virulent a mau nor as before. Another method is tho uso of as- tringent lotions. These simply dry up tue impurities appearing on the skin, but do nut drivo them out of tho system. The only suro and proper method for removing this disease is to find out tho cause, which is usually an improper diet that a physician can correct for you, and eradicate the trouble in this way. The euro may not appear as rapid as when face 'otions arc used, but tho cure will bo permanent. 64

BREATHING EXERCISES. Breathing exorcises aro of great valuo, most easily practised, and givo oxccllcnl results. It is not no. cossary to havo an olaborato system. Tho nostrils aro tho proper organs of breathing.
