COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think ol them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people livo in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of Gft. 2in. That's not fall ing in iove—that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL. At an inquest held recently at Mas terton (New Zealand) on the body of Mr. Robert J. Ewington, one o£ the most remarkable wills on record was produced. A witness stated that when he arrived at the spot where deceased was found Ewington asked him to get his field-glass case and rifle. The dy ing man said: "I have written on them," and asked witness to read the writing to him. Deceased then asked witness to copy the writing and send it to his brother Charles at Masterton. The writing on the field-glass case, which j had been scratched with a piece of wire or a nail, was as follows: — "Look after Maudie and the child ren. Look after things, Will. H. ap point R. Dagg and Charley.—(Signed) Bob." On the same case were scratched the words, "Hard luck!—Bob." On the butt of the rifle there were scratch ed these words:— 'Tear Charley,—Give Will Harding every chance, and he will help Maude and my family. Put him on the right road.—(Signed) Bob." There were also scratched...

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

A WEIRD PROCESSION. Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed to his grave Katch Sarak, a man of big renown in bis business, who died in terrible agony as the result of a cobra bite received while practising his profes sion in the neighborhood of Garden Reach, India." "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by the people amongst whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles. His services were sought recently by a neighbor who had missed many fowls from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in Be- i curing it. ( Instead of dispatching the snake at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives.On attempting to extract its fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, who was ...

CRUSHING REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

CRUSHING REBUKE. In the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in' the trains or on the station buildings. One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conceit and pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing the platform with a cigar in his mouth. He at once accosted the offender and requested him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no notice of this command, but con tinued to walk, emitting a silvery cloud. The station-master asked him to stop smoking more peremptorily than before; but still the owner of the Havana maintained a provoking dis regard. A third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The stranger took no more heed than before, so at last the official, completely losing his temper, pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away. This violent act produced no more effect...

DOGS AND MOVING PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

DOGS AND MOVING PICTURES. A moving-picture show was recent ly given in London to determine wliat effect, a cinematograph picture had on ille hnelligence of animals. A series of motion pictures were reeled off in a darkened room before an audience of prize dogs. First some pictures of a (log show were run through! The dogs walked up and had a look at it., and turned away, obviously bored and uninterested. Evidently the sub ject was too familiar. They woke up, however, when an elephant came splashing into a pool of wafer and ap peared 10 'be walking into the room. A massive bulldog made a dash for the screen. With his head up and ears pricked, he got ready to attack, and ihc whole audience 'barked and bayed in blood-curdling discord. Pictures of birds also irritated them; but -when oiher animals were shown they quick ly recognised that they were not look ing at the real thing, and in a few seconds quieted down completely. The general result of the experiment seemed to be that dogs do ...

CARE OK CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

CARE OK CREAM. For the factory manger to turn out a first-grade butter lie requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should be thoroughly i cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 . yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be provided with good drainage, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon a* possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well gooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man ...

A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. The Beresfords have all been fa mous for the courage that 'borders oil recklessness. Lord William Beres toni served in the Zulu War in 187a, winning the V.C., aud in his book, "Campaigns of a War Correspondent," -Mr. Melton Prior relates some striking stones of him: — lit the retreat Lord William Beres i ford, turning around, saw the four legs 01 a -white horse kicking in the air, Realising at once that it belonged to one of our men, he rode straight for it, and found that the horse had been sho. and that the rider had fallen half stumed. "jet up!" Lord William said to the mai. but lie Beemed to dazed to an swir; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't get up at once 1 will juup down and punch your head!" —at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William succeeded in helping him on to the horse behind him; once mounted, the man clutched Beresford around the waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this was taking place the Zulus were firing from a don...

The Two Financiers. One clay two London financiers who were partners, discovered that an office boy in their employ had been tampering -with the petty cash. One of tliem "was bo much enraged that he desired to send for the police forthwith, hut -the other was a calm and just man. He took a more moder ate and human view of the situation. "Nay, nay, partner," he said, let us always remember that we hegan in a small way ourselves." During a winter visit to Florida, An drew Carnegie attended a service in a little negro church. When the contri bution plate came around, Mr. Carne gie dropped a five-dollar bill upon it. After the contents of the plate had been counted, the clergyman arose and announced: ."Brethren and eisteren, the collection, this evening seems to figure up six dollars and forty-four cents; and if the five-dollar bill contributed by the gentleman from the North is genu , ine, the repairs on the sanctuary will begin immediately."

DAD. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

DAD. By Walt Mason. Dad ambles home at close ot day, and, though he's tired and sore, he joins the childron in their play upon tihe cottage floor. He seems to share in full the glee that stirs their hope ful hearts. A dad adjustable is he, a dad of many .parts. Now he is slain in mimic wars and proves a lovely corpse; and now he is a train cars, again he is,a horse. He is a rooster or a mouse, a monarch or a gnome— it's always Christmas in the liouse when good old dad comes home! And when he's tired of ibeing all the creatures in the zoo he leans his chair against the wall and talks an hour or two. Who ever heard such wondrous tales as dad knows how to tell? Of palaces in far-off vales, where mighty giants dwell; of maiden stolen from her 'bower, of "knight in brave array, who dares the frowning giant's power and takes the maid away. And so he talks until each tot is nodding in his c' air; it's always Christmas in the cot when good old dad is there! December's final week departs a d...

MARRYING RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

MARRYING RECORDS. Women, as a rule, are more given to the marrying habit than men, though no woman has reached the world's marrying record made by George Vitzoif, the notorious bigam ist, whose marriages totalled over 100. In one week he went through eight ceremonies. Almost as strange a case was that of a Russian woman condemned to Siberia not long ago. She had been married to twenty husbands and had treated them all alike, running away from each in turn and taking all their portable property with her. She was a most attractive woman, and highly educated. A woman named Schmeyer, o£ * ennsylvania, was sent to prison not long ago for bigamy. Though she was only twenty-seven years old, she had married twelve men in ten years. Her only comment in court was that she liked them all. A Boer woman named De Beers, whose sixth husband died recently, is the proud mother and stepmother of forty-nine children, while her grand children number 270. Four of her six husbands were widowers, all with...

Bad Health. One of the most general causes of bad health is th(? inefficient action of tlic kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal with certain waste poisons which are toeing continuously manufactured in aur bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us to suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, - blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jaundice, sick-headache, general debil ity, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The reason that Warner's Safe Cure has proved so effective in the above mentioned complaints-is that the me dicine heals and restores: the kidneys and liver to health and activity when the uric acid and other waste poisons are duly expelled from the body through the natural channels. Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists and storekeepers, both in the orig inal (5/-) 'bottles and in the cheaper non-alcoholic (Concentra...

HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

health notes.1" The Evil of Late Slippers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause o£ insomnia, especially that form o£ it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a stan an hour or two later and find themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion conies almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed Lor the last meal to be dis posed of before the?.hour lor retiring. : This interval should be two hours at : least, which means that half-past eight is as a rule late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken' then ought to be o£ a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article o£ diet which is slow o£ digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this iour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with' water, is 1 much better -beverage for use with l! e evening meal or after it.

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an expert, do we import citrus £ruit from Italy? We nave conditions here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. Wo can produce citrus fruit here equal to what we receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is- here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a, thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Y et some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to produce, more of this class. The thin skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, as far as flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported— better in fact, but the drawback is | that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Thomson once "laid" a ghost in a very simple way. Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was .put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know if he had seen anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard a knock at the door. I said, 'Come in, come in.'" "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that is our ghost! What did ' you do?" "I got out of bed and asked if he belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. I asked him if he were a par ishioner. He nodded again. Then I said, 'I am anxious to build some new schools; will you give me a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw him no more!" The teacher was addressing his pu pils on the subjects of laziness and idleness. He drew a terrible picture of': the habitual loafer—Uie'man v/ho dis likes work and whp 'begs for all he gets. 1 "Now, John," said the^teacher to a little boy who had been'very inat...

Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye-strain, is aaid to bo 'largely a defect of civilisation. To counteract it, children should be encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who lias a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end ol each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who can see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop sewing every half-hour and look for £•. minute into space. Relief was quid;, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove their glasses t'nd look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or ...

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth J ods of killing and preparing pigs for i bacon have been necessary in recent J years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor o£ less tat and more iean, what' is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ' ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is | finely streaked with fat and of firm i texture. it is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either porlc or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the iiesli. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is iiabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are pron...

Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Coleraine Albion and Western Advertiser — 8 January 1914

Impure Air and Scrofula. I Tlie atmosphere of all rooms should | be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method of accom | plishing this has been for many years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the iireplace should always be ieft unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the Lop, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially sleeping apartmeHLs, should oe well aired during liie day. Impure air in bedrooms is considerd by emin ent medical authorities to be one o£ the most potent causes o£ consumption and scrofula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at- i tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay in such an atmosphere. Only a few hours each day is sufficient; and a person may live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part...
