DISCOURAGING A TRAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 1 April 1911
DISCOURAGING A TRAMP. People often wondered how Miss Katharine Patterson found it pos- sible to live by herself in the lonely farmhouse that stood in the shadow of a New Hampshire mountain and half a mile from the nearest neigh- bour. To bc sure, Miss Patterson did not live there all by herself more than a part of the time. Born and brought up in the city, she had come into the country for health, and hat! taken the beautifully situ- ated old farmhouse as a means of livelihood. Summer found it al- ways full of boarders, and in the course of the winter it became the centre of a good many snow-shoe ing parties! Between these occa- sions Miss Patterson was the only occupant. Miss Patterson, however, was one of those persons who succeed in whatever they undertake because they are without fear. A large re- volver hung in the kitchen, and at thc back of the house a large dog lived in his kennel. But the dog has his own interests. He disap- peared into thc wood on occasion. It was during o...

THE VILLAGE IDIOT. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
THE VILLAGE IDIOT. -? The young barrister gazed at the little agricultural labourer in the box. Ile was hardly worthy of his forensic ability. "Have you been married?" he asked. The witness stammered and said he had been -once. "And who did you marry?" : "A w-w-womnn, sir." Thu barris- ter winked at his confreres, and murmured something about the "vil- lage idiot." Ile turned again to the witness. "Come, come, my man. Of course it was a woman. Did you ever hear of anybody marrying a man?" "Yes, sir; p-p-please my sister did," was the reply of the village idiot and he was allowed to stand down. I =====
Health in the Home. FRUIT AS A MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
! Health in the Home. FRUIT AS A MEDICINE. ' The curative value of fruit is be- ing more and more insisted upon by ! those who make a study of diete- tics. Grapes are recommended for I the dyspeptic, the consumptive, the I anaemic, and for those with a ten- dency to gout and liver troubles. Plums, also, are said to be a cure for gouty and rheumatic tendenc- ies. The acid fruits, especially lemons and oranges, are particular- ly good for stomach troubles and rheumatisms. It is not sufficient, say the advocates of the fruit cure, to eat a small quantity at breakfast or dinner. One should eat .from two or four pounds of grapes a day ; or, if oranges are the curative ag- ency, the number to be eaten in a day may vary from three to six.
CECIL RHODES'S AFRICAN DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
CECIL RHODES'S AFRICAN DREAM. Sir Lewis Michell, in his life of the Right Hon. Cecil J. Rhodes, just published, tells one or two good stories of Rhodes's pluck and ambi- tions. In the very first year of his entry into the political life of thc Colony, shortly after Majuba, when the ambitions of the young diamond digger must have been smarting un- der the reverses of that disastrous campaign, he said to a friend, plac- ing his hand on the map of Africa : "That is my dream-all English." And a few years later, when Queen Victoria asked him, "And what are you doing in Africa, Mr. Rhodes?" he made thc characteristic reply, "Extending Your Majesty's domin- ions, madam." "THE GAME WORTH THE CANDLE. " To a friend who questioned him as to how he had enjoyed the life "of which he had made such a big thing,1' Rhodes replied: "Yes, I en- joyed it. Oh, yes; it has been worth the candle." Then, with a grim smile, he added : "When I thought Kruger was going to hang Frank (his brother), and I was n...
APPENDIX VANISHES AFTER FIFTY. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
APPENDIX VANISHES AFTER FIFTY. Thc appendix, according to Dr. Robert T. Morris, begins to disap- pear when a person reaches middle age. Dr. Morris says: "There is no proof of an increase in appendi- citis. * It would be better to say there is an increase in diagnosis. That is why we find the malady of- tener in our midst than formerly. The best evidence is that no more persons are afflicted willi it now than in thc days of old. Appen- dicitis is due to the anatomical pe- culiarity of the appendix. The organ is an anomaly, an anatomi- cal vestige, a relic. Anything that causes inflammation there, no mat- ter what, will cause appendicitis. The disease is not due to an abnor- mal appendix, for the reason that every appendix is abnormal. Any- body is liable to appendicitis before middle age. It may conic from lazy habits of life, but not more from that than from any other causes. After middle age the likelihood of thc ailment becomes tess and less as the appendix begins to disap- pear.<...

Random Readings. THE REAL AFRICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
Random Readings. THE REAL AFRICAN. Some amusing stotts of African natives are related in "Scribner's Magazine" by Mr. Herbert Ward. Two or three of them may be quot- ed here : ' A touching incident, illustrating the sentiment of gratitude following efforts to give relief to a suffering baby. Some months later I was surprised in thc middle of the night by seeing a dark shadow cast upon the entrance to my tent. A woman's voice, hushed in tone, said to me : "Here, O white man, take this egg! Many moons ago my baby suffered. You gave it medicine and it is well. I am a poor woman ; I have nothing. But-O take this &lt;=gg'-" Much touched by her words, I arose from my bed, accepted the egg, and placed it in one of my hoots for safe keeping. The following morning, whilst my caravan was getting really for the day's march, I gave the egg to my cook, instructing him to poach it for my breakfast. A few minutes later he returned lo me, holding in his hand a broken egg-shell, saying, "Mas...

A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
A'DECLARATION OF INDEPEN- DENCE. I will not dwell in dreariness Because the day is drear, 1 will not walk in weariness Or stumble on in fear, Because the path is vague and dark. Because the way is lons; No ¡ - these are times for cheerful march, For courage and for song". I uill not make of circumstance My jailer and my (ale; I will step forth to victory Through every failure's gate; My soul and I immortal are And breathe a larger air. We climb the path, and leave behind Surrender and despair. Let those who will bc conquered, still My choice is liberty, A heart for joy, but not for fear, A mind each day more free. To fight, to march, to overcome, To reach the eternal goal This is the meaning of my days, The birthright of my soul. - Priscilla Leonard.
AN APPREHENSIVE PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
AN APPREHENSIVE PATIENT. Willie always had a great aver- sion for doctors. So the dav he was taken down with a fever and he heard his mother say she was going to call in a physician the lad protested vehemently and declared lie wouldn't allow him to enter the sick-room. Nevertheless the physician came, and was hanging up his coat in thc hall when the boy's mother ap- proached the sick-bed to allay the child's apprehensions. "Now, Willie, you mustn't take on so!" she said. "The doctor isn't going to hurt you one bill Just be patient a minute while he's herc, and then he'll go right away again." "I'm afraid he'll do something to me!" exclaimed the youth, anxious- ly watching the door. "Thc boy next door told me the doctor stuck a big needle in his ann one time he was sick and it hurt him terrible!" "Hut the doctor won't stick a needle in you, Willie; all he'll do is to take your temperature." This caused the lad to take on all the more, and, as the physicial en- tered the room, he clu...

AN INDOOR GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
I AN INDOOR GARDEN. [ Here îs a simple plan by which j even very lillie folks can make a ! wonderful window-garden, which Î grows without earth or flower-pots, | J yet needs the sun and must be ira j tercd every day. First of all we j need a large turnip or a gencrous ! si/e carrot. Without puncturing î the wrdls of the cavity, scoop out, ' with a sharp-pointed knife, thc root I end of the vegetable. I'ass through } two holes, or three if the root is -v large, a piece of tape or soft twine ; :? hang the plants in the sunniest win ! dow, lill the hollows with water, ') and do not allow them to become î dry. In a week or so you will be t delighted to see green leaves curl up j about the rough skin of thc root, I hiding it completely, and making 7 it the prettiest hanging-basket in J the world. The carrot leaf is fern f¿ like and feathery; perhaps you will Í like it the best. Keep the little j wells fdled with water, hang the ,i plants where they will not swing or 3 be knocked, and you...
For Young Folks. HOW STONEWALL JACKSON GOT HIS NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 8 April 1911
For Yoong Folks. HOW STONEWALL JACKSON GOT HIS NAME. Thc interesting story of how Stonewall Jackson got his name is told in the "Chicago Standard." In the village of Weston, three miles above Jackson Mills, Conrad Ker ster kept a small store and market, lie had agreed with little Tom J ack- son to give him fifty cents for every pike a foot or more in length that he caught in thc mill-pond. The boy' was only ten years old, but he made the contract in good faith ; and. as the sequel showed, he knew how to keep it. As time went on, a good many twelve-inch pike were delivered at the market with mutual satisfaction to thc parties to the bargain. One day the hoy was seen tugging through the village an enormous fish that almost dragged on the ground. It was two inches over a yard long. Colonel Talbot, a gen- tleman who knew the young fisher- man very well, hailed him and complimented him on his success. "A noble fish, Tom ! Where are you going with it? I want to buy it." "It's sold to Mr. ...
