THE LAUGH CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
THE LAUGH CURE. By Philip GLbbs. There have been many notable events recorded in the newspapers during recent weeks-railway disas ters, strikes, political sensations-but there was one incident which attract ed only a brief notice, although it con 'tained the secreL which all the philos ophers of life have been searching for since the beginning o£ time-the se cret of happiness. It took place in a police court-o£ all places in the world-and the se cret was revealed by a young coster monger charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow. This young man did not say a singie word in self-defence, .but he had a smile which seemed to pierce the gloomy atmosphere of the court like a sudden burst of sun shine. He chucklc-d whimsically when evidence was given against him., ne laughed, with a joyous, unaffected laugh, at the very mention of the wheelbarrow. He was enormously amused by (he misfortune which had befallen him, and he was prepared to take any punishment that might be given to him with a c...

DUCK FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
DUCK FARMING. The following pointers on ducks and duck-breeding should foe observed: T'^ere have 'been many failures in cluek-farniivg, but the essence of the cause is in the man. The theory that poultry-raising fur nishes a nice occupation for little boys and girls, old men and women, and in valids, lias long since been exploded. There is 110 more continuous work of a iigln nature than poultry-farm ing, but you 'will get 'well repaid for your work. There is a good deal of money in poultry-raising, 'but it takes a 'big lift to get it out. A poultry-raiser will never suffer., through want of exercise; it is a good medicine for health. Ducks waste rapidly when in tran sit, but their recuperative powers are equally wonderful. Free range is unnecessary for duck yards; 25ft. x 10ft., well grassed, will carry 50 ducks. Duck-yards should be laid oat so that they can be cultivated. It is a double ibenefit in healthier stock and better results, also rich crops. The habit of scalding ducks or...
THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. Deeswax is gradually going up in price. The bar-frame system of keep ing bees has largely to answer for vis is. Under the okl style, to obUiiu the honey, the combs were destroyed; that meant that there was always a certain quantity of wax to lie placed on the market. Under the old regime, beekeepers never required the wax; but. under the new, nearly every grain is carefully husbanded, for the purpose of converting it into founda tion comb. As the new system of l:eekeeping extends the less wax there will be in proportion to put to com mercial use. Nevertheless, the de mand for wax is steadily on the in crease. It, therefore, becomes the question: Will the production of wax pay? There are localities 'where the honey is of an inferior quality; in fact, almost uiisalenible at any price. Is it 110L worth while in those locali ties to try the experiment of wax pro duction? Bees can be compelled to produce more wnx than they need, and the supply of wax will always fin...
SONG OF THE PRINTING PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
SONG OF THE PRINTING PRESS. "See the league-long web of paper fly ing free. See the glistening ink-black rollers pressing tight To plates whereon the letters are fast-bound in molten fetters, Letters telling tales of human wrong and right, Wrong and right, With a beatific bending to the right. .'When the cylinders are humming like the wind, Aud the paper spindle's whizzing through its stays, When the darting tapes arc guiding sheets in sight and sheets in hid ing, Then your comprehension's tangled in the maze, In the maze, In the mighty, heaving, whirring, maze. "All completed, all accomplished is the toil In the service of the great minds and the less: Now, arising gr.and before us in a sweeping, swelling chorus, Hear the diapason boomings oC the press, Of the press, Aud the full-toned vox humana of the press. " 'Of the mighty ones of osmos I was born, Of the labor and the will that ride the earth: In their energy kinetic hear you not the cry prophetic, "Here is scientific wonder a...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. ' To purify a cistern tie charcoal in a bag and drop it in. Celery may be freshened by being left overnight in a solution ol' salt and water. "When making blue-water for clothes add a little salt to it. This distri butes the color evenly and prevents "patches." Cook cauliflowers in milk and water -it gives them a better flavor, and they look whiter than when cooked in water. Sometimes boot poiisu becomes quite dry with keeping. Moisten it with a little turpentine. It softens the polish, making it usable at once, anil also gives a good gloss to the leather. If at any time you should have a gathered linger or poisoned hand, take a cabbage leaf, roll it out with a bottle until the juice comes, and tie it on the affected part. This will draw and cleanse it far better than a poultice. When using oil stoves, to prevent them from smoking, dissolve one tablespoonful of common salt in every pint of paraffin oil that you use. This also gives a much clearer light, and it prev...

WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
WHAT "TONNAGE" MEANS. The launching of the Queen Eliza beth, Britain's latest huge battleship, was accompanied by the publication of the usual details concerning her, in the course of which such terms as "displacement," "gross tonnage," "dead-weight capacity," and "net re gistered tonnage" were used. To all but shipping men, these terms are confusing, if not misleading. The word "ton," for Instance, is not used as it is ordinarily applied, but is a measure of capacity, and not of weight. Each ton in such cases re presents 100 cubic feet. "Displacement" means the avoirdu pois weight of water displaced by a eteamer when she leaves a port laden to the Plimsoll imark. Hi this parti cular case, "toil" means weight-that is, 2240H). Thirty-five cubic feet of water weighs a ton, and after the number of cubic feet occup'ed by the vessel below the water-line is ascer tained, all you have to do is to di vide the total 'by 35, and you get the displaced water in avoirdupois weight. The "gross-'t...
THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
THE CURSE OF RESPECTABILITY Respectability to-day is the chief concern of the human race, and mar riage is the matrix of respectability. Respectability is an attempt to reduce all life to a simple conventional for mula. It merges the contracts of life. It is an antidote to romance, for it limits one's activities in nearly every line of human endea vor. It requires us to read ccrtain books, to see certain plays, to dress after the prevailing fashion, to avoid certain topics of conversation. It forces. upon us engraved cards and frock coats, the novels of William Dean Howells and the portraits ot Sargent. It turns our minds from the , important things of life to the creases in our trousers and the wings of our collars. It focuses the brains of the nation on unimportant details of philology. It limits a man to one wife, and raises his barber to a dizzy pinnacle of importance. Should the barbers go on strike to-morrow, in a week's time we should lose much of our respectability our hair ...
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. No treatment in cases of dyspepsia is likely to have much effect unless the diet is very carefully regulated. The great thing is to supply the stom ach with such food as will give it tlic. least amount of work. Roast meat, for example, is preferable to boiled; chicken, game (not too high) and mut | ton are more digestible than beef or pork. Vegetables are frequently pro ductive of discomfort, particularly in the form of flatulence. They should either be given up for a time, or taken very sparingly. It will sometimes be found- that a fresh salad, dressed with ! oil and'a little vinegar, can be digest ed when cooked vegetables cannot be taken. The latter are best served as a puree. If vegetables have to bo 'given up, fruits, such as baked ap ples, grapes, and oranges should be I taken instead. Lemon juice also may ? be used in water. Bread should be .toasted, or taken stale. Pastry, cakes, ?"twice cooked meat, soups, tea and cof fee (except in the strictest moder...

S-i-r-r! She was a plump -widow with two charming (laughters. She liad -been a "relict." just a year, and was "begin ning to wear her "weeds" lightly. All the same, when the new curate called upon her, she sighed: "Ah! 1 t'eel the loss of my poor, dear husband very much. I never have any appetite for anything now." The curate was all sympathy, aud, in the endeavor to cheer her by point ing out what a comfort to her her daughters must 'be, replied: "1 can quite understand that; but you are solaced in " "S-i-r-r!" interrupted the indignant lady. "Allow me to inform you thaf I am not laced in at all!"
POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 9 April 1914
POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. From Germany comes an account ot experiments that should be of interest to agriculturists at this time. They demonstrate the possibility o£ profit from swine husbandry. These exper iments were designed to test the value of potatoes as compared with maize in the principal food in the rations fed to pigs. Forty-three, twelve-weeks old, and weighing about 441b., were put up for five months to -fatten. They were given a fixed ibasal ration, which on the average amounted to a little over 21b. grain meal and 3oz. of iish meal per head per day. In addition to this, one lot got slightly over 21b. maize meal, while another got be tween 9 and 10 lb. potatoes. Both lots made good progress, producing on the average about lib. of porlc daily and lib. live weight increase for about 41b. meal. The interesting point, how ever, is the profit. The maize was valued at £8 8/- per ton. The pota toes were charged at 33/6 and the grain, or pease-meal, cost £9 G/8, while the [i...
