THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 13 June 1914

■ „ ) THE POULTRY YARD. The Cowls love an occasional dose of charcoal. Wheat and oats in rotation make «• good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free from lice. Sprinkling the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in Keeping the fowls free from throat and lung troubles. .< There is no advantage in allowing the poultry to tramp around in the snow.

THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAIS . . The dried fruits, such us raiu'ins, i dates, Jigs, currants, etc., are not only j delicious to the taste, but are also | among the most nutritive of foods. | In the past these fruits have been too I little known outside of rich fruit j cakes and mincemeat; consequently their who.osomeness has not been adequately appreciated. They may be used to advantage in many other ways. Fruit Liread.—Fruit bread is becom ing very popular. When making bread, reserve a part of the dough, to which add some well-washed currants, or seeded raisins, a little sugar anil butter, and raise, and bake the same a.-t the plain bread.

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 13 June 1914

HOW NELSON LOST HIS EYE. It is u curious fact that no one has been able to say precisely wlieu and where Kelson lost his left eye. Some say that the disaster occurred during , the siege of Bastia, in 179a, while others decide that it was the siege of Calvi. According to Signor D. ljiberato Abarca, General in the ser vice of the Nicaraguan Republic, both these accounts are false. He says that it was in the year 17S0, when the future "god of the seas," then a post captain in the Koyal Navy, was cruis ing along the coast of Central Ameri ca, that he received the wound which added liim to the list of one-eye! warriors. After inflicting every pos sible injury on .the Spanish Colonies, Nelson resolved to take by assault the castle of San Carlos de Nicara gua. With a flotilla of launches and other llat-bottomed boats, he rowed up the river of Son Juan, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico. Tha Spanish commander was laid up in bed with a severe illness, and the garrison, terrified at the imp...

"A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 13 June 1914

,'A PLACE FOR HIS HEART." "I married you in order to love you in God and according to the need of my heart, and in order to have in th-> midst of the strange world a plac-j for my heart, which all the world'.; bleak winds cannot chill, and where I may find the warmth of the homo fire, to which I eagerly tyetake niyself when it is stormy and cold without."

I They are found in the "Love betters of Prince Bismarck," which have just been published, and from their am ple pages you could cull a hundred similar passages. There are many different judgments of Prince Bis marck current in the world today, but there cannot bo two opinions as to the purity and depth of his affec tion for his wife. Probably she was the greatest single force that ever entered his life. She does not seem to have been an intellectual or a brilliant woman, but she was c...

WOMAN'S WORLD. HINTS TO MOTHERS. Some Useful Suggestions About the Care and Training of Children. All cliildrcu possess imagination in a greater or less degree, and in the management of the nursery this facili ty may bo ranked among the import ant ones. In trifling matters, when no real principle is involved I always consider the easiest way the best way, as, for instance, this morning, when my three-year-old girlie took it into her head not to be dressed as usual and curling her tiny pink toes be neath her gown, iloclaring mischiev osuly sho wouldn't have any 'tock in's on at all."

Surprising the Parson. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 13 June 1914

Surprising the Parson. A provincial laborer recently lost the greater part of his furniture through a fire. The vicar of the par ish headed a subscription list, and the sum of nine pounds was raised for the benefit of the family. Fearing, as Is s often the case, that the money would not be laid out to the best ad vantage, the reverend gentleman ac companied the man and his wife to the furniture stores, and advised them in their purchases. They totalled to seven-and-six. above the amount collected, which sum the generous vicar paid himself. "There, now, 1 think we've finished," he remarked to the couple. A whispered consultation between the man and wife followed. "The mis sus was wonderin' whether you un derstood bicycles, air," explained the man, "and she thought, if you did, maybe you wouldn't mind giving me a hint about what sort of a machine I'd better buy." "You surely can't afford to 'buy a bi cycle, JameB?" remarked the amazed vicar. "Oh, yes, sir!" chimed the woman, proudly e...
