TENNYSON'S BEST COMPLIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912

TENNYSON'S BEST COMPLI- ' - MENT. ......... Perhaps the beet compliment that Tennyson ever received was one day,, walking in Covent Garden, when he was suddenly stopped by a roughlook ing man, who held out his hand, and said, ' You're Mr. Tennyson.

BE WISE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912

BE WISE. Don't be that boresome person, a woman who makes a fetish of house keeping. There is a happy -medium between running a pig pen and being able to. eat from the floors. Cleanliness is admirable, but clean liness at the cost of a family's peace of mind and your own mind develop ment is a bad bargain. Live but to wave a duster and push a broom or scrubbing brush if you count the reputation for an immacu- - I late house above all else in life. It is not necessary to have rolls of dust under ;the bed if you take a few minutes off each 'day to read a good book or to keep up with the dally news. If one cannot be both clean and 'clever, be— well, each womanTmust de cide _ for herself. The up-to-date housewife knows the value of com promise. This is no advocacy of dirt. Be san itary, not flnniky, in your housekeep ing. Dust may be a germ-breeder, but too much dusting is a temper breeder, likewise 'begets dull wits. There are women whose every min ute is passed in fighting microscopic...

That Studious Girl. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912

That Studious Girl. 'Just see!' I cry; 'see how she delves Among the books upon the shelves! No more the novel seems to sate; She seeks for tomes of greater weight. 'She's turned at last from fiction light, And seems to see that it is right .u,ore solid reading should: engage The thoughts or one wnos reacnea her age. 'This search for knowledge pleases me; Such seriousness I like to see, For frivolous she's been before, And glad I am that time is o'er.' Her mother laughs, for well she knows Just what such actions may disclose. 'Your wish,' she says, 'your mind de ceives; The girl is pressing violet leaves.'

RACE FOR A WIFE. 1 ' Odd Matrimonial Methods. Queer Ways of Choosing a Wife. One of the busiest markets in the world, while it lasts, is that held year ly at the little Belgian village of Ecaussines-Lalaing. It is the annual marriage mart established by local maidens, and on the day it is held the village is simply inundated with eli gible bachelors. The army of would be Benedicts, comprising tradesmen, clerks, mechanics, miners and, labor ers, is formally welcomed at the gates of the village by the Spinster Commit tee and marched to an open-air con cert consisting solely of nuptial marches and love-songs. Adjoining the town hall, the maid ens take their places at the refresh ment tables. Beside each young lady a chair is left vacant, and at a given signal the matrimonially-inclined male folk make a rush to secure a seat next the damsel of their choice, and press their respective suits to the accompaniment of coffee and sweet cake. At a 'Beauty and Deportment Com petition' held in L...

WATERING FRUIT TREES. The Danger of Overdoing It. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912

WATERING FRUIT TREES. The Danger of Overdoing It. Many amateur growers do harm to their trees at bearing-time by over watering. Water is a help while the fruit is increasing in size, but not after it is fully grown. When this stage is reached decay commences, the ripening , of the fruit being the first step in this direction. Water sup plied after the fruit attains its pror per size caused deterioration in qual ity and keeping properties; it is prob ably also the' cause of brown rot. It is injurious to the trees by causing a prolonged growth of wood and pre venting its early maturing. Decidu ous trees that have brought their crops to maturity and have made a fair growth of youth wood have finish ed their work for the season. They re quire no further excitement, but should be allowed to rest and recu perate for the next season, for it is probable that this thorough ripening is the most important factor in the following season's crop production. The citrus family and their ever greens...

WAYS OF SAVING DOCTORS' BILLS. Have You Corns. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 17 May 1912

WAYS OF SAVING DOCTORS' BILLS. Have You Corns. . What is a corn, anyway? Simply a nerve that got so near the surface that 'the pressure of shoe or stocking irritated it. Then Nature tried to pro tect the nerve by covering it over with more skin. - And she overdid the matter. After a time this skin be comes dry and hard, and the pressure on that point still remains. Then it hurts the nerve 'badly. It is amusing to read of corn salves that will cause the corn to come out, roots and all, as though it were something that grew there, rooting down like a tree. ; No such thing at all. But you have a hard corn. Well, go to a drug store and buy a corn file. They are similar to a flat steel file, only made of wood, and white sand is glued on to do the filing. With this file off the hard skin of the corn every day for a time. Al ways stop filing before it hurts any. Then rub on a little vaseline to soften it. Put on a looser stocking, and a shoe that does not press on the toe at that point. Th...

Before these days were spent; they grew tired of this kind of life ; for the followers of King Ulysses were terribly greedy, and sure to grumble if they missed their regular meals, or even their irregular ones. The stock of provisions by this time were quite exhausted, and even the shellfish, were getting scarce, so that, they had to either starve or venture into the in terior of the island, where perhaps some horrible, monster had his den.
