Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Witch uses her powers for good purposes only NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) In a rambling 100- year-old house down a quiet country road in Niagara Falls lives a witch However, Joanne Honsberger, 32, is an attractive, happily married mother of four and since this is 1974, although she does have a broomstick, she doesn't ride around on it on nights of the full moon The fact remains that Mrs Honsberger is a white witch and any of her friends or neighbors will confirm this A white witch uses her pow- ers for good as opposed to a black witch who uses them for evil and Mrs Honsberger has been a full-fledged witch since her grandmother, a witch from Russia, ordained her at four years of age Mrs Honsberger said she inherited the official Witches' Bible from her grandmother when she died It spells out ev- erything a good witch should know from the casting of spells to the effect of the full moon Her grandmother also warned her to be careful about what she wished for people or what she thought about them because it would come to pass Grandmother was right Al- though as Joanne herself says, while she can be the best of friends a witch is not the best person to choose as an enemy A wildlife reserve official who turned Mrs Honsberger away from an annual visit she makes with the children of a local school went to hospital, bitten by a llama who never bit anyone before Mrs Honsberger s husband Colin knew she was a witch when he married her but didn't really believe it Over the vears he has learned better and on the whole is proud of his wife s talents But he is scared if I point at him, said Mrs .Honsberger Pointing is a particularly bad thing in the witchcraft lexicon There is a built-in safeguard with witches though They be- Whistler attracts heve in reincarnation and whatever they do will come back to them threefold and it will happen to the things they love the most. The full moon is a busy time for witches For a lot of money in the next month, Mrs. Honsberger advises sleeping with a full wallet under your pillow at such times or a com in each shoe on the day of the full moon. Candles can also help Burn- ing a red candle can bring peace, love and harmony, a green candle can bring money and a brown candle keeps away the evil eye The best gift you can give anyone is a beehive, full or empty, as it brings the best of luck There are times, however, when being a witch is certainly no fun There have been occasions in the past when Mrs Honsberger has foreseen death or illness and her prophecy has come true In case you are planning a trek to Niagara Falls, 1974 witches have unlisted telephone numbers. And although people have travelled from as far as Japan, England and the United States to see her, Mrs Honsberger does not give consultations Modern sorceress ordained witch at age four birds PRINCE ALBERT, Sask (CP) There may be some confused birds around Phyl Mackay's house She speaks their language, although she doesn't know what they are saying Mrs Mackay one of two concert whistlers in Canada, can imitate the sounds of birds so precisely that they often follow her as she walks She can also achieve melodies beautiful enough to stand alone as solo performances or to enhance the sound of a full orchestra Mrs Mackav has performed in dozens of concerts in Sas- katchewan communities She said the propelling force for a whistle comes from the diaphragm the tone from con- trol of the lips, and "the tongue does the work Dear Ann Landers: I'm sure a lot of people must have thought that reader was putting you on when he asked whether it was true that pigs were smarter than dogs He was considering buying a "watch pig I have both a watch dog and a watch pig, and I can tell you that the pig does the better job There is nothing more rambunctious than "Old Porky" when he gets mad Also, your concern about housebreaking a pig was needless Our pig was easier to train than our dog The only real problem with they get too big to keep in a house A year-old pig Continuing CAMM'S SUMMER SHOE SPECTACULAR!
