KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Powder tl.c insides of new gloves to make them easier to slip on, and also, in the enso of colored kid cnes, to prevent the dye from staining the hands. The cooler eggs are the quicker they will froth when whipped, so they should be beaten in a cool place. A pinch of salt always cools and fresh ens them. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for. a few nunutes and then washing them in water. s)moaring o.nd kett-es bright part will prevent the smoke from blackening the metal. If wash ed after use in hot water, the pan will be as bright as ever. When using dripping for making a cake, add a few drops of essence of lemon or the juice of a lemon, and if will be found that this will not only remove the fatty flavor which cakes so often have when made with drip ping—especially mutton — but will very greatly improve the flavor.

GREENBACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914

GREENBACKS. Few people, perhaps, arc aware why the national -of"pai.i;~ViO rm'.sy r priutes _v' joastant study of bank-note ""PTTgravers to get up some plan of printing bills that could not be coun terfeited. In this they only partly succeeded (ill as !ate as 1S57, when a man named Stacy J. Kdson invented a kind of green ink, which he patent ed June 30 of that year. It is called anti-photographic ink, because it can not be photographed and cannot be dislodged with alkalies by counterfei ters to get a complete facsimile of the bills. As it is a secret known only to the American Dank Note Com i pany and the inventor, it is impossible to counterfeit the greenback money. I Even if the composition of the ink I was known, it would he of no use, as j the work could not bo copied from the genuine bills with any other kind of ink.

The Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914

The Difference. "If you wish to distinguish between tiio death of a barber and the death of a sculptor, how would you do it?" asked Jack Merriless. "I don't know. Perhaps you will en lighten me," said his pal, Bob Syrm slick. "Well, to put it concisely. I should sum it up like this. The barber curls up and dyes, while the sculptor makes faces and busts." A lively Irishman was once invited to a large dinner party in Dublin in the liope that he 'would amuse and di vert his host's guests, nut from the beginning to the end of the dinner ho preserved a solemn and serious face. The host thought this very strange. "Why, old fellow," he remarked, "I don't believe the biggest fool in Ire land could make you laugh to-night." "Try," was the wit's cutting rejoin der.

A Wicked Defence. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914

A Wicked Defence. A college poet wrote an ode where in he declared that— The mesage came to the waiting land, The winds of heaven carried the word; And vale and mountain and lonely strand Rejoicing listened and, jubilant, heard. But a class critic said to the col lege poet: ! "How can land hear, 'crazy?" '■'Easy enough,"' was j the reply. "Hasn't it got frontiers!"

Then She Rested Hers. "It says here: 'One of the idols most revered by the Koreans is the figure of a woman, seated resting her chin in her hand,'" said Mrs. Chatter ley, reading from the newspaper. "Which proves that the Koreans are about the wisest nation 011 earth," suggested her husband. "How's that, Joshua?" "Well," said Mr. Chatterley, with distinct and deliberate emphasis, "simply because they make a deity of a woman who has sense enough to give her chin a rest!"

EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 30 May 1914

EYES THAT FOLLOW YOU. Have you erer wondered why tlic eyes in portraits painted in oils fol low you? There Is something uncan ny about it. Years ago superstitious people were afraid to go into a plc tufe gallery where portraits o£ an cestors were to be found. Now we know that the thing is simply an op tical illusion. . To produce Buch an effect the eyes of the person represented in the por trait must be looking directly to the front, and not towards one side. In such circumstances the pupil of each eye is necessarily in the middle there of, with as much "white" on one side as on the other. , Obviously, this relation does not vary at all with the position assumed by the -observer. The latter may stand far over on either side of the picture, and yet, from his point of view, there is as much "white" on one side of each eye as on the other, and the pupil still is in the triddle. Such being the case, the painted image continues to look directly at him. In the palatial mansion of a well k...

It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist, Bellairs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, but he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-lcindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the protty girl enough, but he never turned to his w.?e with the old dearly longed-for 'ook in his eyes.
