THE FAMILY COUNCIL. I. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THE FAMILY COUNCIL. By PRANCES BROWN. They were old-over seventy, both c£ them-and it was before the time of the Old-Age Pension, so there seemed nptliing for it but the "House." The man, his face weather-beaten and gnarled under beetling, pent house brows, sat upright in his chair and gazed fixedly out of the'open lat tice window at a yellow tea-rose that nodded its graceful head in the aper ture. A light summer breeze stirred the curtains, bringing with it a home ly scent of gilly-flowers. Richard Dale's face was impassive. II might have been hewn out of rough granite, and to all appearance as life ltss a thing, so far as any indication ol paying attention to the family con clave was concerned; but, his hear ing was unimpaired, he lost not a word of the discusscion. The old woman, whom as the belle of the village he had wedded fifty years ago, sat on the opposite side of the inglenoolc and looked with pa thetically patient eyes at the man whose handsome face and manly tearing had ...

II. 26 Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
II. 2G Argyle Mansions, Battersea. August 2nd, 1910. Dear Betty,-William, Alt and I think it only right that you should know about father and mother. The [arm's been doing very badly of late, and they can't keep up the interest on the mortgage. I'm very much afraid it will mean the workhouse for them unless you can afford to do something' really substantial. If so, you'd better meet us at Rosedale Farm to-morrow afternoon at five o'clock. If you're not there I shall take it you're not willing, but I may Ds well tell you than I can do nothing co help the old people, and I expect Prudence keeps a tight hold on Wil liam's money, and I don't see what Alf can do; so that you seem to be the- only hope. And as, judging by all accounts, you must be coining money, I hope you'll do your duty. We've seen very little of one another, you and I, of late years, but I thinlc you know what a strong objection poor Bert always had to play-actresses, and it was only natural I should side with bim. But,...

III. Richard Dale's heart was heavy. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
III. Richard Dale's heart was heavy. In spite of his brave words of an hour since, when he had ordered Lib by and hre brothers out of his sight, the "poorhouse" loomed large on his mental vision. In a week's time, if not before, be and Betty would be turned away from the small holding that had been farmed by his father and grandfather before him. He had spoken of work, but who would take an old man when there were plenty of young ones ready and eager for employment? Htis troubled gaze went from time to time to that pathetic figure in the i.'iglenoolc. He watched the shadows deepen until a brooding peace seem ed to envelop all the land; the nod ding tea-roses showed darker in the ga-hering dusk the scent of flowers i-j£e heavily from the dew-drenched earth; the smell of clover and new i.iown hay was in the air. This was thp hour that he and Betty had al ways loved the best-the hour of rest after a day of toil. With fingers that shook he felt for a time-worn briar, and, placing it me ...

John Macdonald's Triumph. I. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
John Macdonald's Triumph. I. Within the ramshackle hut that was used as the office of Woolamuek Gold Mine two men sat facing each other across a plain deal table, upon which stood a half-filled 'bottle of whisky and two glasses. The men were an incongruous pair. John Macdonald, the owner of the mine, was a hard-bitten, angular, clear-eyed Scot of about thirty-five, clad in earth-stained mole skins, patched here and there with all sorts and shades of odd material, making a tout ensemble of gaudy col or that would, perhaps, have appealed to an artist's fancy, though it -would certainly have been rejected with dis dain by a self-respecting tramp. The other man seemed a decade old er, of a somewhat flabby stoutness, and was attired in the immaculate white duck and Panama hat favor->.1 of the opulent tourist in the sub tropics. A brilliant as big as a pea blazed and twinkled from its nest of scarlet silk under his massive folds of clun, and a fat black cigar protru ded from a corner o...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
II. Blakcly liatl departed for England weeks ago, with all the necessary documents for the prosecution of his 1)ig scheme in his possession, and Macdonald, now with plenty of funds in hand, had thrown himself heart and soul into the task of developing the mine. He had engaged as his chief assistant a smart young engineer named Forrest, fresh from a famous mining school at home, whose lack of practical experience was fully com pensated for in John's eyes by a boundless enthusiasm, which he had the faculty of imparting to the miners under his charge. So far, however, their united efforts at locating the reef had been no more successful than Macdonald's previous ones. They had bored and tunnelled 111 various direc tions from the main shaft, and al though 110 hint of the precious ore had been revealed, at least the pass ages, under Forrest's skilful guidance, were masterpieces of underground construction. The lad was justly proud of them. Blakeley cabled the news of his ar rival in Lond...

III. In Perth, Macdonald found his fears amply confirmed, so to London he went, angry with himself that he had been so easily hoodwinked, tout grimlv determined ta bring Blakeley to book During the voyage he gained much useful knowledge of mining finance and the working of the stock markets generally, through the medium of the ship s library. So, when one fine after noon lie pushed open the ornate swine door which admitted to the office of the company, he was fully primcd for a stormy interview with Blakeley He found himself in a large, lofty apart ,f"rnlfIled Wlth highly-polished Tn i,M10t! expensive office fittings. a Blass-panelled do!?; labelled Private," doubtless the trance to Blakeley's sanct sole occupant of the room was en The . - * was it joting lady, dressed neatlv in black "'lt10t w"s seated at a table with a typewliter in front of her and a tele phone-receiver at her elbow.

Unintentional Frankness. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Unintentional Frankness. The Bishop of Loudon, who lias been "going for".?music-hall immor ality, recently told a story of a visit he paid to Buckingham Palace to see King Edward. As he was going in he passed the . late Lord Salisbury coming out, but the statesman did not seem to know him. In the course of conversation he mentioned the meeting to King Ed ward. "Oh, Lord Salisbury never recog nises anybody," replied the King, and going to a bureau he took out a new photograph of himself and handed it to the Bishop. "What do you think of that?" he asked. "A very excellent likeness, sir!" re plied the Bishop. . "Well," said the King, "when 1 showed it to Salisbury he looked hard at it for a minute and then said: " 'Poor Buller! I wonder if he is really as stupid as he looks?'"
Complimentary—in a Way. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
Complimentary-in a Way. "John, said Mrs. I-Iarkins "I heard fi nice compliment for you to-day." Mr. Harkins put his paper down, twisted up the ends of his mous tache, looked pleased and said: "Well that's nothing remarkable. I receive compliments nearly every day." Mrs. Harkins went on sipping her tea and her husband waited tor her to resume. Finally, he said: "Well, why don't you tell me what it was? Who was it that compli mented me?" "Oil, you couldn't guess in a week." "Mrs. Deering?" he ventured. "No." "Not Bessie l-'allington?" he rather eagerly suggested. "No." "Oh, well, of course, if there's any secret a'bout it, I don't care to hear what it was, or who said it." "There isn't any secret about it," Mrs. Harkins sweetly returned. "Mr. Hannaford told me that, every time he and 1 met, he 'became thoroughly convinced that you were a man of ex cellent taste." John Harkins then shoved his hands down in his pockets and walked out side to think it over.
THE VALUE OF LEMON JUICE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THE VALUE OF LEMON JUICE A teaspoonful of juice in a small uup of black coffee may relieve a bili ous headache. The juice of half a lemon in a cup of hot water taken 011 awakening in the morning is an excellent liver cor rective. A lotion of lemon-juice and rose water will remove tan and whiten the skin. Lemon-juice with olive oil is far superior to vinegar for a salad dress ing-equal parts used for blending. Lemon-juice on loaf sugar is good for hoarseness. If when boiling sago or rice a tea spoonful of lemon juice is added, t!v> grains will be whiter, and a delicate flavor will be imparted. We all know the value of salt and lemon-juice for removing stains from white goods. After the juice is ex tracted, the rind dipped in salt clean ses brass beautifully and convenient ly. It also removes unsightly stains from the hands. Tough meat can be made tender In adding a teaspoonful of lemon-juice to the water in which it is boiled.
PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
PATIENCE. "To know how to wait," says De Maistre, "is the secret of success." Cyrus Field was ten years in laying the Atlantic cable. The first time he tried to lower it the great rope snap ped in mid-ocean, and when they grap pled it and brought it to the surface, it slipped away from them, and was gone. Not until he had tried thirty times was the tireless patience of the inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the hardest lessons is to learn to wait patiently.
A VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
VICAR'S "DRINK POINTS." The Rev. George Denyer, vicar of St. Paul's Church, Blackburn, Issued some novel "drink points" in his parochial letter for November. He stated: The man who can afford to get drunk is too rich. The best thing to keep in the beer bottle is the cork. If you get the best of whisky it will get the best of you. The man who tried to drown his sorrow in drink found that it could swim. It costs a man more to have a seat in a public-house than to have a seat; in the church. It takes a long time to age whisky, but it won't take long for whisky to age you.
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. Better roads are essential to better living as well to the farmer's com fort and convenience. They are essen tial to the reasonable pleasure of his family. Good roads mark the stand ing of every community. The greatest objection to living in the country is the difficulty of getting about. You must get aibout if you properly market your crops, if you are to keep your machinery in order, if you send your children to school, if you go to church or attend meet ings. These are not little things. They are matters of vital importance. Bad roads impose the heaviest tax on a farmer that he pays, and he is cer tain to pay for it, whether he knows it or not. He pays it in the wear and tear of all his vehicles. He pays it in the additional labor imposed upon his stock. He pays through the labor or self-denial of his family. Therefore, work for better roads as you would work to put out a fire in your barn. Study the best methods for building and maintaining better roads...
FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have 'been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to test the effect of feeding on the quality aud size of eggs to find out how to produce the biggest eggs. Three lots of ducks were fed on flesh, fish and vegetables. Those fed on the fish diet laid the greatest num ber of eggs, but they were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid by those fed on the llesh diet, whilst those fed on pure grain diet also beat the fish-fed birds both for quality and weight of egg. The American poultry raisers, are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fed on grain with a small percentage of flesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging of insect and such like life has a deteriorating effect on the quality of the egg, and they are also unanimous in the finding that too riuch green food lias a similar effect on the quality and weight of an egg. It is on this account that they agree that the Asiatic brown-tinted ...
THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. A High and Noble Calling. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 16 April 1914
THE "SACRED CAUSE" OF AGRICULTURE. High and Noble Calling. Agriculture is the only life's jab to which the Creator ever directly set a man. He put Adam in the garden o£ Eden "to dress and keep it." Conse quently, the Mayor of the English town of Windsor was not far wrong certainly he was not guilty of affecta tion-when, in the course of his open ing remarks at the Royal Counties Show the other day, he spoke of "the sacred cause of agriculture." We are not to confine the word "sa cred" to matters that touch upon man's future state merely. Anything that intimately concerns man's pres ent happiness and well-being may be so called. Anything that is high and noble; anything that can be exalted in the conception and the doing; any thing that conduces to the best in man and the best in his surroundings may be called sacred. All this may truly be said of the cultivation of the soil and husbandry at its best. Ic is not easy for a farmer always to remember this. One is not always in a devotio...

ome. He had been around from church to church trying to find a congenial congregation, and finally he stopped in a little church just as the con gregation read with the minister: "We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done." The man dropped into a pew with a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness," he said, "I've found my crowd at last." It has been said that speech has been given to women to conceal their thoughts, but it seldom even con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in the North has been trying to get a curate. We know mauy old maids who have been trying for years. Most things we haven't the slight est right to are rather pleasant.
