Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - November 3, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Her Santa Claus a i tie a Happy Man Quot Are % one and the same by Clarissa Mackie copyright by american press Asso elation 1911. The Hau on the third floor of mrs. Samsell s boarding House stretched a dark and gloomy Tunnel from front to rear. Halfway Down its length a Small Nimbus of Light surrounded a tiny Gas flame. There was an undiscovered leak in the pipe Here and the at was always foul with the escaping Gas White painted doors led from the Hall into rooms at rear and on the West Side. The stairway went Down the Eastern Blank Wall into the dimly 11 ted Brussels carpeted gentility cd the second floor. Up Here however there was merely Brown oilcloth on the floor and it was worn into uneven Hillocks and was Slippery with age. Honora Bur ame up the stairs and thrust a to o the lock of the third floor rear r the door swung Back against tin ill and made a passage for us s u Eze in Between the narrow in Bedstead and close the ,. In one Corner was a battered Oak Bureau with a distorting Mirror above it there were a washstand and a rocking chair and Honora a shabby trunk. That was All. Wien she had removed her hat and clock and Hung them in the tiny closet Honora attached a piece of Gas Hose to a her Jet and lighted a Small Gas stove. On this she placed a Saucepan of water and then Sank wearily into the chair. With the stove lighted there was a dim bluish glow in the room and Honora sat there waiting for the water to boil and looking out it the window at the dreary Prospect of tall Brick structures and Distant blinking lights. From the next Block came the Clatter and bang of elevated trains. Suddenly All the Dow was blotted o Honora a Bright against the Back placed her Hunt a a i can to stay can to stay All Christmas and a i body to care v 1 time or not. No ends to. Nobody mass As if it we Honora Bun s car one. She bad Var from the win i a Mist of tears pressed heavily or chair and she .1 a her eyes. A a a Etc sobbed. A i big City at / thai there is Noer i i be a Good to give any pres say a merry Christ ally meant a Ilion was a Peel ten delicately Nur tured in a court. Able Home in a pleasant suburb. He was the Only child of parents who had no relatives except very Distant cousins in another City who were almost strangers to the burrs. Honora a father had been confidential Man in a Large City House and two years before this Christmas eve he had been Arres. For Ember Ling Money from his i. in despair had killed Sims his wife and daughter less. The disgrace of the affair combined with the Shock of her husband s death ended mrs. Burrs life within another year and Honora was left to face the world alone. After she had sold off most of the household effects and stored the remaining few with a Friend Honora paid the debts and went to new York to seek a situation. She had keenly Felt the humiliation and disgrace ant upon her fathers death but. A Aless Honora Burr never believed that he was entirely guilty. That he had not lived to make a fight for his Honor was his weakness. Honora was proud and Sho would not approach any of her fathers friends or acquaintances in her quest for work. She would not Embarrass them by courting a refusal. By her own efforts Honora secured a position in a music store where for $8 a week she sold Sheet music and demonstrated the Quality of pianos by her Brilliant playing for Honora was a skilled musician. Her life was a very Lovely one in the dreary boarding Bouse but she could not afford to take a brighter and better room for she was saving a Dollar a week from. Her wages hoping to accumulate enough Money by Spring to give up ter situation and seek some music pupils. The Kettle was boiling merrily now. And Honora poured some of the water into the Little japanese Teapot she had brought from Home and set the remainder Back on the stove to boil an egg for her supper. As she moved about the Bine disk of the room one could see that she was Small and slender and gowned in Black from Bead to foot her face and the White of her Little bands and the snowy glimpse of White at neck and wrists shone out. Somebody came up the stairs three Steps at a time whistling merrily tramped noisily Down the Hall and the door of the Large front room opened and closed. The whistling continued. A a it a the Happy Man Quot said Honora to herself is she extinguished the stove and turned on the Gas Light this was the worst Christmas eve Honora had Ever spent. Last year it had been sad. But her dear Mother was alive. Now she was All alone and the horror of loneliness seemed almost move than she could Bear. A in the Story said Honora forlornly a if one is unhappy on Christmas eve they go out and do some Good o the poor and unfortunate but when one has t got but a Dollar and forty rents to last until next pay Day i wonder what one ought to do Quot the question was answered at once. The door of the front room opened again and the a Happy As Honora had designated the Good looking lodger who ran up and Down the Long stairs of mrs. Samsell s gloomy House whistled through the Hall. He started Down the stairs and Honora Beard a ripping sound a Sharp exclamation and the thud of a heavy fall. Then All was quiet for a moment. By the time she had reached the foot of the stairs there was an excited gathering of women about the prostrate form of the a Happy mrs. Ramsell was loud in her Lauren nations. A was if i did t have enough on my hands tonight a she wailed a without him falling downstairs and killing a it might be cheaper if you Dent a new carpet on those stairs. Mrs. Ram sell a said a bleached looking woman in a red silk Waist. A that carpet was new last Spring a retorted Fin. Bamadell. Quick in defense of the tattered of toff1 third floor. A a he Ongher looked where he was a has any one sent for a doctor a asked Honora quietly. A no. Mary Yon Telephone to the hos Petal for an ambulance Quot screamed mrs. Samsell Over the banisters to the floor below. A Why not Send for a doctor a urged Honora bending Over the unconscious Man. She had noted his evident refinement and the Quality of his cloth ing indicated that he Mast have known better Days Aitho ngh his presence in the cheap boarding House was a mystery. A the has a room. Perhaps to would prefer to be taken care of Here Quot who a going to pay a Dollar for a doctor a demanded mrs. Ramsell shrilly. Quot How do i know ill Ever get it Back from a a in la take the risk a said Honora impatiently and Mary was directed to Telephone for the nearest physician. Or. Ramsell was rooted out of Soma lower basement Retreat and together with the Stout armed Mary and the lesser efforts of Honora and a Palo faced youth from the third floor front room the still form of the no longer a Happy Man Quot was conveyed to his room on the floor above and Laid on Tho bed. After that. Mrs. Ramsell announced that she left the Case in the hands of miss Burr a who did no to seem to mind meddling in other folks affairs a Sho acidly remarked and at once disappeared to attend to the interrupted supper. The other boarders scattered to forget the affair in the More absorbing topic of approaching Christmas and Honora was left alone with Paul Davis. The doctor arrived five minutes afterwards and announced that the patient was merely stunned and would recover under the application of certain restoratives which with Honora a help he proceeded to employ. Their efforts were rewarded by the opening of a pair of dark eyes followed by a prolonged stare and dazed questioning. A a it a a Miracle that your husband did not break his neck a said the doctor genially As he pocketed his fee and hastened away for it was Christmas eve and he was in a hurry. Honora blushed Crimson and a look of concern came into Pink Davis face. A a in a under the greatest obligation to you a he said frankly a and i am sorry to have been the cause of any embarrassment please Tell me who Yon Are so that i can realize the situation. The doctor has ordered me to keep in bed till morning and i feel dizzy enough to never get uple Honora told him briefly that she was his neighbor on the same floor and that is she had More Leisure than any of the other boarders she had merely undertaken to look out for him until the doctor came. Quot the others had so Nanny things to do. Tomorrow will be Christmas you know a she ended. A a it a Christmas for you too Isnit it a asked sharply. A it used to be but it Isnit any More a s Quot said sadly. E Pale faced Young Man thrust his he in the door to say that he would sit i All night with or. Davis and so i ice Lora. With a warm hand clasp from the a Happy Man a who looked especially Happy whenever he glanced at her charming face went Back to her Little room to face Christmas alone. Morning brought a delightful Surprise. From her door handle there Hung All sorts of gifts perhaps purchased in haste that morning but selected with taste. Just the presents that Honora could accept too. A big Box of roses and a glorious potted Azalea a five Pound Box of Candy a Basket of fruit., a Book and an envelope containing a couple of matinee tickets. A this should keep you Busy on Christmas Day a was scribbled on a Blank card for the donor was Anonymous but of course Honora knew who it was. It was a Happy Christmas for Honora after All. The Dollar she had emptied from her scanty purse to pay to the doctor brought her the happiness of her life. It developed that Paul Davis was a newspaper Man temporarily out of a situation Aud on Christmas eve he had been appointed to the staff of a great new York daily and As he explained afterwards to Honora. Was a a on easy Street but he did not leave mrs. Ramsell a shabby boarding House which had been a Refuge for him while out of work. He stayed on there and of until at last Honora could no longer withstand his pleading and so they were married. U1 Call my husband a Santa clans because he brought me the greatest happiness i have Ever known a explained Honora to a Friend one Day. A a and i Call Honora a mrs. Santa clans for the same reason a averred Panl Davis proudly. Here a a racing legend of Agincourt. For Many centuries we English have plumed ourselves upon the Victory of Agincourt indeed it is from King Henry address to his soldiers on that occasion As Given by Shakespeare that the motto of this journal is taken a familiar in their Moas household but the t Lench have an account of the affair not so much to our credit it was am tired according to this Fabie by the two leaders that Only the Nobles on each Side were to fight. King Henry v. Then artfully ennobled his whole army and hence got the Best of the enemy. Shakespeare unwittingly gives a Little countenance to the legend when he makes the King declare in the above mentioned address a be be never so vile this Day shall gentle your Standard. Realism with a vengeance. A a great Deal of fun has been poked at the realistic school of Art a says a new York artist a and it must be confessed that some ground has been Given to the enemy.

A this picture will show Yon the kind of chickens we raise in Texas. Note the comparative size of the team and the Driver Joshua Bonham and Peet the rooster Quot that is what l. O. Bonham of Johnson county tex., wrote when he sent the picture shown Here to the Rural new yorker. The Bird is nearly As Large As the baby. Many Farmers shake their Heads at Light brahmas because they think such great fowls eat too much for what they give Back. Or. Bonham was asked to say Why he thinks the Brahams Are Best and this is his answer How Many study the surrounding conditions when selecting a Breed of chickens we have been growing the Light brahmas for the past eleven years and this is the reason Why. Our chickens have the Range of the Orchard. Berry Patch Garden and Vine it Tab Josh driving Booster Peet. Yard and to control them it is Only necessary to have a portable two foot wire net Fence to move from place to place As necessary and while they Are Good hustlers they Are not wild rangers. Some say they Are too Large but when we go to Market and one of them will bring As much As two of Many other Breeds you cannot object to that. If you put the eggs on the Scales you will find that they Laid As Many pounds of eggs As the Best and they do most of their laying in the Winter and Spring when eggs Are a Good Price. They Are the hardiest chickens we have Ever had and they Are just As Fine at the table As any. They Are the first friers at the Market in the Spring that is if you have an incubator or some other Hen to do the hatching As they will not set until late in the Spring but will continue laying and after All when you go to the show you will hear More comments of the brahmas than any other Breed that is from people that Are not inter ested in special Breeds. Cider needs no chemicals careful heating sterilizing and corking All is necessary. The keeping Sweet of cider and other fruit juice be without resorting to the use of chemicals is a simple process and can be done by any one who understands Canning fruit. The cider is heated As soon As extracted to a temperature of about 200 degrees or until it begins to simmer but does not boil. It May be put into bottles or jars and sealed at once but a much better Way is to allow it to stand for Twenty four hours and pour off and filter through a flannel cloth then reheat to the same temperature and Seal. When the juice or cider is put into the bottles which should be sterilized by rinsing out with boiling water the corks should be put in and the stopper sealed with sealing Wax or paraffin. To will keep indefinitely and May be put to a great variety of uses. Blood meal not popular. Few dairymen feed dried blood to their milk cows. Sensitive persons revolt against the idea of feeding blood meal. And yet it contains nearly twice As much protein As cottonseed meal or Oil meal and is just about As effective As a milk producer. It has been More customary to use blood meal As a hog feed than As a feed for cattle. It comes As a byproduct from the packing House and when fed to hogs is mixed with Corn. It has been shown by station tests that cottonseed meal is somewhat cheaper As a milk producer than blood meal. Soft snaps not numerous. There Are no soft snaps about farm life or any other kind of life if a Man wants to win. And the Man who sets out to find any such thing will come out worse than he went in and make a miserable failure of living. Business is business on the farm As Well As elsewhere. And Why should it not be use various lubricants. Where the pressure is heavy the lubricant should be thick in order to resist being squeezed out under the Load. For Light pressures Oil should be ased. Thus for a Wagon heavy grease is Best while for a Cream separator of High Speed a thin Oil is necessary in order that its viscosity will not add to the friction. Solid substances in a finely diver led state such As Graphite Are often used effectively to reduce friction. Borne understanding.

The Way the English poet received Ralph Waldo Emerson. When Emerson the great american writer came to England he paid a visit to Wordsworth says an English Magazine. Wordsworth had just returned from a journey and was in his Garden writing a poem on what he had been. The visitor found the great poet a White haired tall sparsely built Man of a rugged rustic Type with nothing unless it were the Fine eyes to hint of the poet. Wordsworth made no ceremony Over the visit of the Man from a far land but said instantly when he was called to Greet him a if you Are interested in my poetry perhaps you will like to hear these Emerson politely agreed and this j3 what happened. Emerson has himself written Tai Story Down for us. The old poof thought for a few moments then stood Forth and repeated with great animation an entire poem he had written. A the recitation Quot the american philosopher wrote afterwards was so in looked for and surprising words Worth standing apart and reciting to me in a Garden walk like a Schoolboy declaiming that at first i was near to laughing but recollecting myself that i had come thus far to see and he was chanting poems to me 1 saw that he was right and that i was wrong and i gladly gave myself up to stoves of Iron. They superseded the roman Stuba in the eighteenth Century. A heating apparatus called a a Stu Tyis stove was widely used among Tho higher class of romans before the be ginning of the Christian Era. This class of Heaters was fixed and immovable by sides being in several other respects wholly different from the mod Ern stove. In Germany and Scandinavia they were used in bathrooms Aud Hothouse during the Middle Ages. They were usually a destructed of Brick Stone or tile and were of immense size. They sometimes covered the whole Side of a Twenty or thirty foot room and often extended out into the room As much As ten feet in which Case the smooth Flat top was used for a Bedstead the heated surface imparting an agreeable feeling of warmth during those cold nights of Long ago when such things As covers were quite rare. Cardinal Polignac of France was perhaps the first to attempt the construction of a stove wholly of Iron this at about the beginning of the eighteenth Century. The first real improvement Over the old roman a is tuba was brought about by Franklin in the year 1745. One of Bis efforts produced a typical base Burner almost perfect and a Model of workmanship. Stoves were not used in private houses to any great extent prior to the year 1830.�?london Standard. Economy in meat. Avoid. Wast by the judicious Jio of Odde and ends. The Cook who broils the Tough end of a porterhouse Steak roasts the ribs in a roast throws away the Bones and juices left on the Platter by the Carver and discards As unfit for use the meat from which the soup Stock is made is guilty of wicked waste. The end of a porterhouse Steak is unfit to Berve when broiled. It should be Cut off. This together with the Bone and juice left on the Platter a Bay Leaf three or four cloves an onion a Carrot and some Parsley will make several Caps of bowl lion. The ribs should be Cut out of a roast when preparing it for the oven. These with the leftover Gravy May be used in a similar Way for Stock. In making Stock the Long slow process of gentle boiling extracts the flavor from the meat and coagulated the albumen. Only a Little of the latter is extracted. Therefore the meat loses but Little of its nourishing properties. There Are numerous ways in which such meat can be made appetizing. Combined with Rice and tomatoes a delicious luncheon dish May be made. Butter a baking dish and line with hot boiled Rice. Fill the Center with bits of meat Well seasoned with Salt Pepper and onion juice. Cover with Rice. Bake Twenty minutes in the oven. Turn but on a Platter and pour Over it a Well seasoned Tomato sauce. It is a toothsome food Magazine. Historic fires. Travelling stones. A a travelling stones Quot from the size of a pea to six inches in diameter Are found in Nevada. When distributed upon a floor or other level surface within two or three feet of Oue another they immediately begin to travel toward a common Center and there lie huddled like a clutch of eggs in a nest. A single Stone removed to a distance of three and a half feet upon being released at once started with wonderful and somewhat comical celerity to join its Fellows. These queer stones Are found in a Region that is comparatively level and Little More than Bare Rock. Scattered Over this Barren Region Are Little basins from a few feet to a Rod or two in diameter and it is in the Bottoms of these that the rolling stones Are found. The cause for the strange conduct of these stones is doubtless to be found in the material of which they Are composed which appears to be Lodestone or magnetic Iron weekly single file. When the indians travelled together they Seldom walked or Rode two or More abreast but followed one another in single file. It has been thought by some that this practice resulted from the Lack of roads which compelled them to make their Way through Woods and around rocks by narrow paths. If this were the real reason for the practice. Then we should expect to find that the tribes who lived in open countries travelled in company As do Whites. The True reason for journeying As the indians did in single file seems to be a feeling of caste. This feeling was at the Bottom of other customs of the indians. It made their women slaves and rendered the men silent and unsocial. This peculiarity is Asiatic. How it has warped and disfigured hindu life is Well known. Home is scarcely possible where it prevails. To the women and children Domestic life is bondage. The women of a chinese household Are Seldom seen in the Street. The children Wien accompanying their father follow him at a respectful distance in single file and in the order of their weekly. Tho most fateful of All perhaps was the burning of Moscow. A list of great cities burned would be a list of nearly All the great capitals of the world. Persepolis the splendid residence of a Long series of rulers whose tributary provinces extended from the Indus to the Hellespont was burned with All its palaces and temples. Babylon and. Carthage were so utterly destroyed that their very location has become a matter of doubt. Rome was burned eight times Jerusalem four times and though they Rose from their ashes the second Temple is not like the first Athens Syracuse Bagdad Alexandria and Antioch now exhibit Only a Shadow of their former grandeur. The phoenicians like the spartans and assyrians. Disappeared with the ruin of their capitals but the most fateful conflagration recorded in the history of the world is perhaps that of Moscow. A they talk As if the Fate of Europe had been decided at Waterloo a says de Bourhenne in his memoirs of the first Empire. A if Napoleon had beaten Wellington and Blucher a dozen times a it could not have retrieved the reverses of the three preceding years. The truth is that the French Caesar and his Fortune were ruined by the burning of Moscow. That City was the funeral pile of the great . The Collar of Homer. Among the curiosities preserved in the Fabre museum at Montpelier France is the famous a Collar of Homer a invented and worn by the great italian poet Alfieri. This distinguished Man began the study of greek when More than forty seven years old and made such rapid Progress in that language As to astonish All who knew him. He proclaimed himself a Chevalier of the order of Homer and appeared with a Collar on which were engraved the names of Twenty three poets and fent and modern and to which was suspended a Cameo portrait of Homer. On the reverse Side of this preserved relic is an italian Ristich composed by Alfieri which translated says a Alfieri himself in creating this order of the Chevalier of Homer has invented an order More divine than that of any family Fina Ciering. They Tell me you work for a Dollar a Day How 1b it you clothe your boys on such pay i know you will think it conceited and queer. But i do it because i am a Good financier. There a Pete John and Jim. Joe. William and Ned a half dozen boys to be clothed and fed i buy for them All Plain victuals to eat. But clothes i buy Only for our son Pete. When Peters clothes Are too Small for him to go on my wife makes them Over and gives them to John when for John who is ten they have grown out of Date she just makes them Over for Jim who is eight when for Jim they have become too ragged to fix. She just makes them Over for Bill who is six and when for Young Bill they will no longer de she just makes them Over for Ned who is two. So you see if i get the Good clothing for Pete the family is furnished with clothing Complete but when Ned got through with the clothing and when he has thrown them aside what do you do with them Why once More we go round the Circle Complete and begin to use them for patches for Pete but where dear Friend can you buy clothes that Wear. From Pete Down to Ned without a rip or tear i go Down to Glicks so his Stock is the Best he can suit the whole family my wife and the rest. Glick amp co., the new Busy Corner Onancock Virginia.
