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.

If you remem• ber, I executed your last order with promptitude and dispatch. Important Person—I gave you no ader. Traveling Salesman—Pardon, sir; you said, \Get out,\ and I got.—I0x- cha nge. Early Veterinarians Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome had veterinarians. But then they concerned themselves with horses, the only animals deemed valuable enough to merit medical care. Most important to the ancients were their armies, and horses composed a big part of their armies. The first col- lege for veterinarians was estab- lished in France in 1781; in America almost a century later. Then came the machine age, and horses lost their value. Veterinarians became fewer.and fewer. But the recent in- crease of valued pet dogs and cats saved the profzssion. Veterinarians have their own medical association, and must study three or four years in a recognizcd college to become members. Stulent \vets\ study all domestic animals, but often special- ize in one, or even one breed of dogs. \The Petticoat Candidate\ Gen. William Henry Harrison, first Ohio president, was called \the petticoat candidate\ during his hard cider campaign of 1840, and here's how the nickname started: Before the battle of the Thames, several , Indians, friends of the Americium, told Harrison that the British general, Proctor, had prom- ised his Indian allies that he would turn Harrison over to them if the American general was captured. In turn, Harrison replied that if Proc- tor was captured, he would hand him over to the Indians on the American side. so that they could dress him like a squaw. For this courageous response, a group of ladies presented Harrison with a petticoat that might be used as a starter if Proctor was captured, and later his opponents tried to make something out of this by label- ing him \the petticoat candidate.\ \Stink Birds\ Found only in northern South America, hoatzins (also called hoactzins) resemble pheasants, are brilliantly colored in olive, brown, buff and yellow. They exhale such a strong odor natives dub them \stink birds.\ Relics of prehistoric times, they are gradually losing their power of flight. Rounded, stub- by wings permit them to flit only from branch to branch. They live near rivers and lakes, yet do not eat flsh, but instead munch leaves and fruit. If the adult hoatzin is strange, the baby is even more so. Before it can fly nt all, it climbs trees with sharp claws in the ends of undeveloped wings. It is also an excellent swimmer. Both these abilities are lost, however, as it grows up. Knights Templar Dates Back to the Middle Ake' The 1Cnights Templar or Knights of the Temple mentioned in Ivanhoe was one of the great military reli- gious orders of the Middle ages. Or- ganized in the year 1118, during the Crusades, to aid in the defense of Jerusalem, they called themselves the Order of Poor Knights of Christ, or Knights of the Temple of Solo- mon, from their headquarters in Jerusalem. They grew to be one of the most powerful organizations in Europe, and their great wealth aroused the jealousy and cupidity of princes. Finally in 1312 the order was suppressed and their property was seized, largely by the French and English kings. The present Knights Templar is a Masonic fraternity, notes a writer in the Detroit News. The Ameri- cana encyclopedia states that the tradition that the \Baldwin En- canniment,\ which up to the middle of the Nineteenth century had been conceded to be the witness that Masonic ICnights Templars were de- scendants of the , Knights of the Cru- sades, is not accepted. Its earliest accredited document bears date 20 December 1780. The first reference to the 1Cnights Templars as allied to Masonry is dated 1769. The theory is that a connection existed between the chiv alric order of Knights Templar and the fraternity of Operative Masons in medieval times, because bodies of skilled workmen erected the Templar strongholds in the Holy Land and their churches and prior- ies in Scottish Masonry of the trans- mission of the chivalric degrees ev- er since the execution of the last Grand Master of the Templars, Jacques de Molai, in 1314. Iceland Island Settled in Part by Irish Monks Iceland, an island in the north Atlantic, has an area of 39,709 square miles, nearly equal to that of Kentucky. It is built up of vol- canic rocks, pierced by fjords and gorges, creating rugged but beauti- ful scenery. Glaciers are numerous, the largest being Vatna, which rises 8,400 feet above sea level. The island was settled in part by Irish monks toward the end of the Eighth century, the Northmen com- ing 100 years later. Between 930 and 1284, relates a writer in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Iceland was an independent republic, but by the \Old Treaty\ of 1263 the country recognized the rule of the king of Norway. In 1381, Iceland, together with Norway, came under the rule of the Danish kings, but when Norway was separated from Denmark in 1814, Iceland remained under the rule of Denmark. Since December 1, 1918, it has been ac- knowledged as a sovereign state, and is united with Denmark only through the identity of the sover- eign. During June and July there is practically no night in Iceland. The sun goes down for a few minutes at midnight, but soon rises again. Cattle raising is the leading occupa- tion of the island. Sheep, of which millions are raised, are diminutive in size, their fleece being very thick. The country has long been fa- mous for its culture and literary activities. Strange Toads From Brazil Among the curious aquatic crea- tures in the aquarium of the London zoo are the Pipa toads from the swamps of Northern Brazil. Their heads are triangular in shape and as flat as half-crown pieces. Their \fingers\ are long and slender and terminate in star -shaped tips, while the toes are so broadly webbed that, when extended, they resemble half - opened umbrellas. Their eggs, re- ports a London paper, up to about a hundred in number, are deposited, with the help of the male, upon the back of the female, where they sink into the skin, which, during the breeding season, is spongy and yielding. The cavities so formed become covered after a few days with a horny lid. Nearly three months later the young toads lift up the lids and emerge as perfect little toads. Old Fort Strategic \Key to our province\ was the term often applied to Cockspur is- land, at the mouth of the Savanah river, by Sir James Wright, royal governor of Georgia. The strategic- al position of the little island early led to its fortification, the first such defense being built in 1761, reports the Interior department. The struc- ture was commenced in 1829 and ranks as one of the best preserved of the brick fortresses along the Atlantic coast constructed during the early half of the Nineteenth century. It was named Fort Pulaski, in honor of the gallant Pole, Count Casimir Pulaski, who fell at the Battle of Savannah, in 1779, during the war of the American Revolution. Most Primitive Indians The Seminoles, the most primitive Indians in the country, live on small islands of about an acre that rise above the water of the Florida Ev- erglades. They hunt and fish in long, narrow canoes which they pole through the labyrinthine waterways. Their houses have no walls, but con- sist merely of platforms canopied with palmetto leaves. Their fires burn continuously. They are made of trunks of cypress trees which radiate from the fire like spokes from a hub, and are gradually pushed into the burning center. 5LIPPING ALCM \See here, Madame, why don't you sprinkle ashes on your sidewalk?\ \Because I don't want to deprive my family of any pleasure.
