What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

He was thinking about the winter and how hard it would be to get a good meal with the snow on the ground, and the ever watchful Mr. Dog at the farm on the hill. “Now why in the world does he not sleep all winter like Mr. Bear'?\ thought Mr. Fox, and then he jumped up, slapped his sides and began to laugh. \He might,” he said. “He night I Mr. Dog is always ready 2U0ugh to listen if you approach him ■n the right way.” Mr. Fox sat down again and was lost in thought for some time. Then he ran out of the house straight toward the farm on the hill, and when he* came to a rock which was on the other side of the fence from Mr. Dog’s house he jumped on it and sat down. Pretty soon along came Mr. Dog, lumping about and playing in the snow. “Mr. Dog Jumping About and Playing in the Snow.” Mr. Fox jumped down and by the time Mr. Dog came up to him he was rolling over and playing just as Mr. Dog was doing. “Growl,” went Mr. Dog, starting toward Mr. Fox, but Mr. Fox was not to be scared. He just jumped at Mr. Dog as if to tag him and then ran toward the woods and Mr. Dog after him. When they reached the woods Mr. Fox turned around and began to dance about again and Mr. Dog forgot his duty to his master and began to play just as Mr. Fox intended he should. By and by Mr. Fox sat down. “It is going to be a long winter, I think, and I believe I shall try Mr. Bear’s plan,” he said, \and go to sleep and not wake up till springtime. “Why don’t you do the same, Mr. Dog?\ he asked. \It must be pretty dull for you around the farm.

I fancy he is not so considerate of you in the winter time as he might be. “It is a shame to make you sleep out In that house, where it must be very cold, when he could just as well let you sleep In the kitchen behind the stove, where it Is nice and warm.” This was a very unpleasant subject to Mr. Dog, for he had often thought the .same thing about the kitchen stove und tried many times to hide and get a chance to sleep there. But every time his master had found him and made him go out in his house to spend the flight. \Where could I find u nice place to sleep all winter?\ he inquired. “I guesb master will wish lie hud let me sleep in the kitchen when he finds I am gone.” i Mr. Fox began to smile. He was thinking hdw easily it would be for him to get poultry all winter with Mr. Dog stored away somewhere asleep until spring. “You come with me, Mr. Dog,” he said. \I will show you r. place where you will be comfortable, for I do think your master is most unfair to you and I should like to help you,” Mr. Fox had noticed j place among some rocks that very morning where he was certain there nmst be a cave­ like place, and here he led Mr. Dog. “There,” he said when they reached It, “you crawl In there. You will find dried leaves and other soft things and when the next snow comes it will cover these rocks and no one will ever find you, and when you go home in the spring I guess Mr. Man will be pretty glad to see you.” Then off ran Mr. Fox for his home. But what he did not know was that he had taken Mr. Dog co the very place Mr. Porcupine had chosen for his winter bedroom and when Mr. Dog crawled into the cave he came up against Mr., Porcupine’s quills. For he always sleeps with Ills back to the opening of his cave.

Mr. Fox’s ear was nipped but he managed to get away. “Now, how could he treat me In such an unkind manner?” mused Mr. Fox when he reached home. “Even if he did not care to sleep all winter he ought to re­ member that I acted In a very friendly way toward him. But Mr. Dog of ‘course thought Mr. Fox had taken him to the cave know­ ing just what was to happen to hiih and he slept with one eye open and both ears listening’all winter, and Mr. Fox did have a very hard winter, very hard Indeed.

I CThcWhy ¡ of I Superstitions ¡ X* g a g a, ■■ i ■ = ^ = = =s -X I By H. t R U I N q k i n q g GOLD BEADS AND SORE THROATS A STRING of gold beads when worn around the neck is regarded in this country and Canada sometimes as a cure for sore throat, quinsy and scrofula ; but generally as a preventive of those diseases. Once universal, this superstition now flourishes mostly in the rural districts where it shows no sign of losing Its ground. Apparently the source ui the superstition is to be found in the cult of Minerva, the Ro­ man goddess identified with the Greek Athena. Now Athena-MInerva wore, among lier other ornaments, the Aegis of her father Zeus, or Jupiter. Ancient stntues of Athena-MInerva represent her ns wearing the Aegis In different forms and ways. In Feveral of the stntues which have been dug up—no­ tably one in the gallery of the Louvre— the Aegis is nothing more than a broad collar or necklace to which is attached by wuy of a pendant the Gorgon’s head PL ■SH«M«|I [3 A LINE O’ CHEER By John Kendrick Bangs.

Not only does it repre­ sent an abstract virtue which religion deems all-desirable, but it is also one of the names of holiness. It means \bearing up” and Is regarded entirely as an English name though its origin is with the Latin. The tltl- Pius, applied first to faith­ ful filial love as in the “Aeneid,\ came to have a higher significance with the advent of Christianity. Un­ der Antonius Plus It became the name of a martyr pope and later was nsed -nost frequently as one of the papal appellatives. Pia, the feminine, is still in use In Italy. The English translated the virtue expressed in the title of Pius into their Patience, occasionally varying it with Piety and Prudence, which they seem to consider identical. The Puri­ tans are responsible for the vogue of Patience both in England and in this country. Etymological history reveals the fact that there was a St. Patlens of Lyons in early times -and S t Pru- dentlus was the great Christian poet The turquoise is the tallsmanic stone assigned to Patience.

The carving of the Aegl? seem to rep­ resent It ifs of wrought metal— presum­ ably gold. The Greeks, we know, painted their statues and sometimes gilded parts of them. The celebrated statue of Athena by Phidias in the Parthenon was of ivory and gold and the Aegis on it would nnturnlly be of the metal. If the maidens who waited upon the goddess in the Parthenon ap­ proached the statue wearing a gold ornament that ornament became sa­ cred. It would have been natural for them to have adorned themselves in the manner of their goddess and their golden necklaces would have become thereby sanctified. As to medicinal powers the festival of Minerva at Rome was especially celebrated by physicians and in one of her phases the goddess was known as Athena Medina—Athena the physi­ cian—and temples were erected to her under that name. Hence the signifi­ cance of the symbol of the Aegis of Athena—a necklace of gold bends. Es­ pecially do we see this In the idea of the preventive power of the symbol, for though the Aegis degenerated into a necklace it was, undoubtedly, orig­ inally a shield—something that pro­ tected.

The indications were received on an apparatus called the radio goniometer, which showed the air­ plane’s position with relation to the wireless station. This device enabled the pilot to make the journey with an error of only 2 per cent In direction on the outward flight and with entire accuracy on the return. One advantage of the apparatus, If practicable, says the Los Angeles Times, is the assistance it would lend to night ilyincr, a branch of aviation thnt is receiving much attention just now.

EXECUTED FOR USING COAL Under Edict Issued .by Edward I of England This Was Capital Offense. In 1306 King Edward I of England issued a proclamation making tiie lise of coni as fuel in London a capital of­ fense. One case Is on record where an accused man was tried, found guilty of burning coal, condemned and promptly executed. The invisible, gaseous products of the combustion of coal were early pro­ nounced detrimental to health and veg­ etation. Resentment became intense when ladies of rank, their faces made fairer by liberal applications of pow­ der, underwent a curious change of complexion whenever they sat near a coal fire. The nature of the smoke and odor from burning coal remained a mystery until after the middle of the Seven­ teenth century, when an alchemist de­ vised an ingenious process of heating coal in the absence of air. The liquor obtained wns known ns “oil of coal” and was sold ns a most potent remedy for many ailments.—Detroit News. “DANDELION BUTTER COLOR\ A harmless vegetable butter color used by millions for 50 years.
