How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 February 1898

How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local oluco your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give tho newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printer for setting up the thousand and ono frco notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you 110 such return, and is spending nottiier time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. Tho time may como when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper iti any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good newspaper— one that will still help your town and district— give all your printing to tho C.It. Advocate, the only paper published in tho...

A Brutal Larrikin. Last evening, whilBt returning homo betweon the hours of 11 and 12 o'clock a resident took a Bile Bean for Biliousness, which obviated a possible attack of headache and constipation* which often foil -wa an over indu'g :nco in refresh ments, liquid and otherwise. Bile beans, taken ? by larrikins, whose livers and digestion are in an imperfect condition, would not feel so much ill-will towards their fellow-beings, and always bo wanting to punch someone's head. This sime thing applies to family tiffs and differences ; if we really knew it, about two' thirds of tho disputes and petty jealousies that one finds even in our best homes are caused almost entirely by biliousness and bad liver. To be forewarned is forearmed, and if havo rela tions and friend don't bo a bore to them all your life. A course of Bile Beans for Biliousness wil' make you in all probability a good husband, 'riend, and companion. They only cost Did, and Is 1M per box, or six large boxes for 63 ; su...

A Lesson for the Weak. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

A Lesson for the Weak. Do you Bee that locomotive engine standing on the aide-track? Something has broken dewn about it. There is ho hii3 of steam from its valves ; it is still and cold as a dead whale cm a beach ; it can't draw a train; it can't even move itself. Now, tell me, do you believe that any amount of tinkering nnd hammering at it would make it go? Not a bit. Nothing on earth will make it go except steam in the boiler, and even that won't unless the engine is in order. Everybody knows that, you say. Do they ? Then why don't act on this principle in every case wnere ic appuea ; Here is suoh a cass. Writing concerning hi8 wife, a gentleman says : 'In the autumn of 1880 my wife fell into a low, desponding state through family bereavemont. Her appetite was poor, and no food, however light, agreed with her. After eating she bad pains and tightness at the chest, and a Buuso of fullness as if swollen around the waist.

PADDY'S THREE ANSWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

PADDY'S THREE ANSWERS. Frederick of Prussia had a great mania for enlisting very tall men into the Koyal Guards, and paid an enormous bounty to his recruiting officers for getting them. One day the recruit ing-sergeant c/.aiiced to espy a Hibern ian, who was at least seven feet high. He accosted him in Engish. and pro posed that he should enlist. The idea of militai; life and a Jr.rge bounty so '.le lighted Patrick that he immediately consented. 'But unless you can HpeakCSennan the king will not give you so much.' ' Och,be ]autrs !' said the Irishman, ' sure it's that — -I don't know a word of German !' ' But,' said the sergeant, ' three words will be sufficient, and these you * an learn in a short time. The king knows every man iu the Guards. As soon us lie sees you ho will ride up an:l ask you how old you aie. You will say 'Twenty -seven.' Next, how long hii^e you been iu ti ??, service ?

A MODERN REIGN OF TERROR. Chicago ir at present the snug harbour for a greater number of thievest, sandbaggerK, robbers, and cut-throats than wore ever before sheltered within its liuiitsat ono time. There is an abso lute reign of terror her«, and not a day passes that numerous roblie.riis, ojyuilts, and murders arc not chronicled. Jlw and women who are ;ompelled to go upon tho city's streets after lusk do so with a vague feeling that they may jo the next to feel the garmtor'n lingers clutch ng their throats as thoy piss the mouth oT ? onio dark alley, or that they may full, stunned mil bleeding, the victims of the highwayman's sliigshot, to be despoiled at the convenience of .heir assailant.

At oue time a delicate question as to the con struction of p. statute was discussed before him, aiid after elaborate arguments on both sides, the Chief Justice decided the question in open court, giving his reason in a (nw well-timed remarks, which caused a lull it- -hc court room.

A Clergyman's Experiment.' [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

A Clergyman's Experiment.' A new York clergyman has lately tried the ex periment of dressing up like a common person, 'and qoing round to tho fashionable churches, to see what sort of reception he would get. At most of them he reports that he was made decidedly unwelcome, the objection being that he had no gloves on, wore a low crowned hat, and presen ted a general appearance of tweedy vulgarity that nominally render homage to a carpenter s son. Ho found that at some New York churches poor people, such as fishermen and the like, were absolutely refused admittance. On one ho was objected to on the ground that nobody knew him, and, because he was a stranger, was summ arily hustled out of tho building,trom which 'ajj nations' are supposed to be taughc. I dont know that he is entitled to much sympathy. It people like to make a god of the dollar, and orect temples to its worship, unbelievers should Keep away irom mere, ana Duua churohes of iheir own.

STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

STRANGER THAN FICTION. When a passenger on a Channel steamer, on Icani.ii; over the tuffrail, accidentally lets a pocket-book tall into the sea, he is entitled to conclude that he has seen the last of it. Such a case recently occurred, and the unlucky pas senger, or course, gave it up as irrevocably Jost. It contained letters of credit and other values. To lvin amazement, however, some time later he received it by post with its contents intact, together with a letter from a French solicitor, stating that it had been found among the haul of a trawl net, snd that the papers it contained served to identify the owner, who, we hope, made the haul a profitable one to the honest fishermen. A Russian Mystery. Material for a thrilling novel is furnished by the following incident, which is declared to tie strictly tine :— A respectable, fairly educated man was living in a tiny bouse in Moscow, and earning ju.st enough to pay his iray.

BAKER v. BUTTERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 25 February 1898

. BAKER v. EUTTERMAN. The diverting side of retribution in kind appears in a story lately given of a trade quarrel ii. a small French town. A baker was in the habit of buying his butter of a small agricul turist who j'yed nuar him. Hub he began to suspect that he did not get good weight ; a test proved it. What was more, the shortness showed a tendency to go pa. The pats of butter weighed less and less. Ultimately there was a suit ii. tho local court. The judge aski,d the butter dealer to produce his scales and weights. The reply was strange, and piqued the curiosity of the listeners. '.' I have scaies, but I do not use weights.' ' Then how was it possible for you to weigh your butter I-'1' was thp pertinent inquiry of the bench. Then came the tit-for-tat. The butterman swsetly explained that he was a buyer on his side of the baker's bread, that he purchased what purported to bo three-pound loaves, and that these samo loav.1! served him for weights in returning his own wares to tbe ...
