Steel pens are almost in universal use now, and are made by the ton and in increasing volume every year. . Confucius used a hair brush for a pen, and his ancestors for thousands of years before iiis time. The reed came 3nto use for 'writing tin (the marshy countries of the Orient.

MAN-EATING FOXES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

MAN-EATING FOXES. That the fox may be a man-eater ap pears from experience in Upper Pied mont, Italy. A young woman, accus tomed to wander in the mountain gorges, disappeared, and after a time some articles of clothing belonging to her, surrounded with footprints of foxes, were discovered at a point nearly a mile above sea-level. As there were no other tracks, it was concluded that,, while stupefied "with cold or fatigue, the woman must have been attacked and eaten by these an imals. A sliy young man had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, toeing bashful, his suit progressed slowly. Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing, so the next time he called she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose." j A crimson flush overspread his countenance, hut the exchange was made after some hesitation on his part. Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you going?" she asked,...

LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

. LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist or wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superflouous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. .The baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its surroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. Iu its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf weed and feeds unmolested until its armoT gets hard. By the time it weig...

AFTER WAITING FORTY-SEVEN YEARS. 'Damages of £500 for breach of pro mise are claimed by Miss Emma Ma haney, aged sixty-seven, from Mr. John Wolf, aged seventy-seven, a Civil War veteran, in a suit she has brought at Paterson, New Jersey. 'Mass Mahaney says that the last she saw of her fiance was in 1863 as he was leaving for the Civil War. She never married, believing that some day the sweetheart of her youthful days would return to claim her. Three years ago, forty-seven years after her last meeting with him, she was overjoyed to receive a letter from Mr. Wolf, who informed her that he had now retired from business with a fortune. A correspondence ensued in which the sptinster alleges the vet eran wooed her with all the ardor which characterised him :before_ the ■war, and finally he proposed " mar riage.

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Epsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, &nd no poultry-keeper can afford to be without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, Avhen the comb is purple in color and a -hen loses her appetite, is often remedied iby a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or after meals, the correct dose being half a teaspoonful per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the full effect upon the bird's organs.' Closely allied to the above is Glauber's salts, or sodium sulphate. This saline treatment is wonderful in improving the digestion and appetite of ailing fowls, and by its action on th...

Reassuring. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

Reassuring. It was rather rough weather at sea, and the captain was continually being asked if there were any danger by a certain nervous and fussy parson who was aiboard. Getting tired of it, at last he led the parson to a speaking-tuibe connected with the stokehold. "Put your ear to that," said the captain.' fTlie parson, on doing so, heard a tremendous uproar going on below, accompanied by some terrible swear ing. "There," said the captain, "do you think those men would swear like that if -they thought that their last mo ment had come?" "To be' sure they would not," said the parson, and went a-vvay satisfied; tout soon afterwards, getting nervous again, he rushed to the speaking-tube and listened. "Ah," he said, much relieved, "thank Heaven they're still at it."

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Cufley. Many people throughout the world are cherishing the. Idea that some day war will become a thing o£ the past, and universal peace will 'be establish ed. Only a few weeks ago a great palace was opened, "and thousands of pounds have .been given to the cause; •but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes .by conference; but it is not appearances which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world has ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the Ideal? As far iback in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have .been fighting for the mastery one ov.er another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine c...

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 8 April 1914

THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. f Under a costly canopy 7The village blacksmith sits, Before him is a touring car, Broken to little bits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their wits. The village (blacksmith smiles with glee As he lights his fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, 'Stand hunrbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; TheyJIke to see him make his Ibills, And hear the owners roar; And ,the chauffeur weep, as they de clare They ne'er paid that rtnfore. He goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his casli; A high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and tlio chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A building big and fine. And it bears "Garage" above tlio door On a large electric Bign.
