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.

She had hoped to Co into the garden to help Aunty Rose add{ perm, but she could not bear to (leave Prince alone. By and by Mrs. Kennedy came urt from the garden, her pan heaped with pods. Site looked neither in the di- rection of the prisoner nor at his little mistress. Prince whined and lay down. He Mad begun to realize now that this was um play nt all, but punishment. He blinked his eyes at Carolyn May and looked as sorry as ever a dog wkth cropped ears and an abbrevineed tail could look. The peas and potatoes were cook - lbw for diluter when Aunty Rose ap- peared 'again. There was the little giri.all of a drovy sleep, lying on the grass by the prison pen. Amity Rose would have released Prince, but. though he wagged his stutim of a tail aat her and yawned anti blinked, she thad still her Mathis regarding a mon- grel's good nature. - She coUld not allow the child to Sleep there, however; so, .stooping, picked up Carolyn May and carried /ter comfortably into the house, laying Mei down on the sitting -room couch to have her nap out—as she supposed, without awakening her. Aunty lose . came away softly and closed the door :Ind while she finished getting dinner site tried to make no noise which would awaken the child. Mr. Stagg came home at noon, quite ea full of business as usual. To tell , (be truth, Mn, Stagg always felt bash- ful in Aunty Roge's presence; and he • : tried to hide his affliction by converse- - Con. So he talked steadily through the meal. Illit somewhere—about at the pie goer se, It was—he stopped and looked encand riorlously. \Weirs it l\ he eXcluIrned, \where's *initiates Carlyn?\ \Taking a nap,\ said Aunty Bose composedly. \Hum! can't the child get up to her victuals?\ demanded Mr. Stagg. \You begin serving that young one sepa- rately and you'll make yourself work. Aunty Rose.\ \Never troulie about that which doesn't concern you, Joseph Stagg,\ responded his housekeeper rather tartly. \The Lord has placed the care of Hannah's Carlyn -on you and me and I'll do my share and do it proper.\ Mr. Sttigg shoek his head and lost interest In his wedge of berry \Then. are institutirms—\ he began weakly; but Aunty Rose said quickly: \Joseph Stagg!

Revive Work of Old Masters. • Tills question of weight mil there- fore praelicaltility of armor for the min on foot—the * man who makes a clinrge--reverts to the time of Louis XV of France, when the use of defen- sive protection hind practically disap- peared and an attempt was made to revive the steel helmet. Indeed. the development of armor front the time of Fide arms until the use of firearms Is one of exceeding interest at this time. In that the government Is re- viewing the work of some of the greatest of the old masters in arnior making, with it view to &Instating the best stud most feasible of the old meth- ods of defensive protection. The use of armor dates heel; to the ninth Century It. ,C and Immune more elaborate nnri complex until the intro- duction of gunpowder. The helmet tens the first body protection to nimear and was followed by the cuirass—the luu 1 - (em being used by Om Greeks and Ro- mans hind reappearing at the time of Charlemagne in the form of a wnist- coat mule of overhipping metal scales and of rather imperfect execution. • What Norman Warrior Wore.

The knight was now practically invulnerable, but so weighted down and so awkward of tnoventent that once dismounted he wits at the complete mercy of his foe. To lessen Ids chances of being MS - mounted, therefore, his horse was equipped with armor. the tout en- semble being a sort ef medieval tnnk. The man on foot, however, needed greater freedom of movement, anti so wore considerably lighter equipment, munely, helmet, shoulder pieces, shield, nrnt and thigh pieces. knee pieces and n short coat of Illail—or hatibergeon—to which was added, in ninny cases, an abate/tine/ demIcnir- ass. This equipment may appear again on the modern sniffler practical- ly as worn by the foot soldier In the retie) of Charles VII. The elaborate armor of the knight —which.
