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.

'PRINCE BECOMES A HERO OF ANOTHER ADVENTURE WHICH INCREASES HIS POPULARITY. Synopals.—Her father and mother reported lost at sea when the Dunraven, on which they had galled for Europe, was sunk, Ciarolyn May Cameron—Hanna's Carlyil—Is sent from New York to her bach- elor uncle, Joseph Stagg, at the Corners. The reception Wien her by her uncle is not very enthusiastic. Carolyn is also chilled by the stern demeanor of Aunty Itose, Uncle Joe's housekeeper. Stagg is dismayed when he learns hem a lawyer friend of his brother -In-law that „Carolyn has been left purctically penniless and consigned to his care as guardian. Cprolyn learns of the estrangement between her uncle and his one-time .sweetheart, Amanda Parlow, and the cause of the bitterness between the two families. Prince, the mongrel dog that Carolyn brought with her, and the boon companion of the lonesome girl, is in disfavor with Uncle Joe, who threatens to dispose of Iiirn, but Prince becomes a hero and wins the approval of the Corners by routing a tramp In the act of robbing the schoolteacher. CHAPTER VII. —8— :Sunday Walk. Really If Prince had been a vain dog his ego would certainly have be- come unduly developed because of this incident. The Corners, as a commu- nity, voted him an acquisition, whereas heretofore he had been looked upon as a good deal of a nuisance. After she recovered from her fright Miss Minnie walked home with Caro- lite May and allowed Prince's delight - id little mistress to encourage the \hero\ to \shake hands with teacher.\ \Now you see, he's acquainted with eon, Miss Minnie,\ said Cdrolyn'May. 'He's an awful nice ddg. You didn't know just how nice he was ; before.:' Almost everybody went to :clairch and all the children to Sunday Khoo', which was held first. The Rev. Afton Briggs, though seri- ous-minded, was a loving mail. He was fond of children and he and his childless wife gave much of their at- tention to the Sunday school. Mrs. Briggs taught Carolyn May's class of tittle girls. Mrs. Briggs did her very best, too, to get the children to stay to the preaching service, but Carolyn tray bad to confess that the pastor's discourses were usually hard to under- stand. \And he is always rending about the 'Begets.'\ she complained gently to Uncle Joe as they went home together on this particular Sunday, \and I enn't keen Interested when he does that. I s'pose the 'Begets' were very •aice people, but I'm sure they weren't related to us—they've all got such fanny names.\ \Hum!\ ejaculated Uncle Joe, smothering a desire to laugh. \Flow gently, sweet Afton, does select his passages of Scripture mostly from the 'valleys of dry bones,' I allow. You've got It about right there, Carolyn May.\ \Uncle Joe,\ said the little girl, tak- ing her courage in both hands, \will you do something for me?\ Then, as he stared down at her from under his bushy brows, she added: \I don't mean that you aren't always doing some- thing for me—letting me sleep here at your house and eat with you and all that. But something special.\ \Whet Is the 'something special?'\ asked Mr. Stagg cautiously. \Something I want you to do to- day'. You always go off to your store after dinner and when you come hem.. (Caleb dark.\ \Too dark for what?\ \For us to take a walk,\ said the tittfe girl very earnestly. \Oh Uncle Joe, you don't know how dreadful I cols taking Sunday walks with my papa! Of course we took 'em in the morning, for he had to go to work on the paper In the afternoon, but we 41d just about go everywhere. If you would go with me,\ the little girl added wistfully, \just this afternoon, imams to me I wouldn't feel 00-80 empty.\ \Humph!\ said Uncle Joe, clearing isis throat. \If it's going to do you any particular good, Carlyn May, I suppose I can take a walk with you.\ It was a crisp day—one of those au- tumn days i adieri the tang of frost . re- mains in the jilt, in spite of all the efforts of the sun to warm it. Here and these they stopped to pick ap the glossy brown chestnuts that and burst from their burrs. That is, \Oarolyn May and her uncle did. Prince, after a single attempt to nose ope of ire 'prickly butra, left them strictly elope. \You might : , ,htst as well try to eat tunty Rose's strawberry needle cush- .on; Princey,\ the little girl said wisely. \You'll have a serer nose than Antos Bartlett had . when he tried to lie, it down with a weed rasp.\ \Hum!\ ejneulated Mr. Stagg, 'whatever poosessed that Bartlett thud to do such a fool trick?\ \Why you know his nose is awfully trig,\ said Cardyn May. \And his mother is always worried about It. She must have worried Amos, too, for one lay last week he went over to Mr. Parlow's shop, borrowed a wood rasp end tried to file his nose down to a proper size„ And now he has to go with his noile - ria,greased and shiny 111 the new skin trews back on it.\ \Bless me, what these kids will do 1\ Mattered Mr. Stagg. . It was just at that moment that the little girl and the man, becoming really good comrades on this walk, met with an adventure. At least to Carolyn May it was a real adventure and one she was not to forget for a long, long time. Prince suddenly bounded away. barking, down a pleasant glade, through the bottom of which flowed a brook. Carolyn May caught 'a glimpse of something brown moving down there and she called shrilly to the dog to come back. \But that's somebody, Uncle Joe,\ Carolyn May said with assurance, as the dog slowly returned. \Prince never barks like that unless It's a per- son. And I saw something move.\ \Somebody taking a walk, like us. Couldn't be a deer,\ said Mr. Stagg. \Oh cried Carolyn May later, \I see It again. That's a skirt I see. Why, It's a lady!\ ' Mr. Stegg suddenly grew very stern - looking, as well as silent. All the beauty of the day and of the glade they bad entered seemed, Lost on him.' He went on stubbornly, yet as though loath to proceed._ \Why murmured Carolyn May, \It's Miss Amanda Parlow That's, who it 181\. The carpenter's daughter was sit- ting on a bare brown log by the brook. She was ciLessed very prett , all In brown. Carolyn May wanted awfully to speak to Miss Amanda. The brown Leaped Forward With His Walking Stick tO Strike. lady with the pretty roses in her cheeks sat on a log by the brook, her face turned - from the path Joseph Stagg and his little niece were coming along. And Uncle Joe was quite stubborn. He stared straight ahead dowd the path without letting the figure on the log . get lot° the focus of his vision. Hanging to Uncle Joe's hand but looking longingly at the silent figure on the log, Carolyn May was going down to the stepping stonea be which they were to cross the bid*, when suddenly Prince catne to a halt right at the upper end of the log and his body - stiffened. • \ \What is It, Prince?\ whispered his little mistress. \Come here.\ But the dog did not move. He even growled—not at Miss Amanda, of, course, but at sbmething on the log. And it was just then that Carolyn May wanted tb screhm—and she could not! For there on the log, raising its flat, wicked head out of an aperture, was a snake, a horrid, silent, writhing creature, the look of which held the little girl horror-stricken and speech- less. Uncle Joe glanced down impatiently, to see what made her hold back so. The child's feet seemed glued to the earth. She could not take another step. Writhing out of the hole in the log and coiling, as it did so, into an atti- tude to strike, the Rieke looked to be dangerous indeed. The fact that it was only a large blacksnake and non- poisonous made no difference at that moment to the dog or to the little girl—nor it. to Joseph Stagg when he saw It was coiled right at Miss Amanda's back. She did not see Iti for she wits quite as intent upon keeping her face turned from Mr. Stagg as he had been determined to ignore her presence. Carolyn May was shaking and help- less. Not so Prince. Ile repeated his challenging growl and then sprang at the vibrating head. Miss Amanda uttered a stifled scream and jumped up from the log, whirling to see what was happening behind her. Joseph Stagg dropped Carolyn May's hand and leaped forward with his walking stick raised to strike. But the mongrel dog was there first. He wisely caught the blacksnake behind the head, his strong, sharp teeth sev- ering its vertebrae. \Good dog!\ shouted Mr. Stagg ex- citedly. \Fine dog I\ \Oh Miss Amanda!\ shrieked Caro- lyn May. \I—I thought he was, going to sting you—I did!\ She ran to the startled woman and clung to her band. Prince nosed the dead snake. Mr. Stagg looked exceed- ingly foolish. Miss Amanda recovered her color and her voice simultaneously. \What a brave dog yours is, little girl,\ she said to Carolyn May. \And I do so despise snakes!\ Then she looked directly at Mr. Stagg and bowed gravely. \I thank you,\ she said, but so coldly, so Carolyn May thought, that her voice might have come \just off an iceberg.\ \Oh I didn't do anything—really I didn't,\ stammered the mun. \It was the dog.\ Both looked very uncomfortable. Joseph Stagg began to pick up the scattered chestnuts from the over- turned basket. The lady stooped and whispered to Carolyn May: \Come to see me, my dear. I want to know you better.\ Then she kissed Carolyn May and slipped •quietly away from the brook, disappearing quiCkly in the under- growth. Joseph Stagg and the little girl went on across the stepping stones, while Prince splashed through the water. Carolyn May was thinking about Miss Amanda Parlow and she believed her Uncle Joe was, too. \Uncle Joe,\ she said, \would that had old snake have stung Mist Amanda?\ \Huh? No; I reckon not,\ admitted hi!. Stagg absent-mindedly. \Black- snakes don't bite. A big one like that can squeeze some.\ \Elut you were scared of It—like me aryl Prince. And for Miss Amanda,\ said Carolyn May very much in ear- nest. - guess 'most everybody Is scared by the sight of a snake, Carlyn May.\ \put you were scared for Miss AmSndit's sake—just the same as I was,\ repeated the little girl decidedly. \Well?\ he growled, looking away, troubled by her Insistence. \Then yen don't hate her, do your the child pursued. \Pm glad of that, Uncle Joe, for I like her very much I think she's a beautiful lady.\ To this Uncle Joe said nothing. \I 'guess,\ thought Carolyn May wisely, \that when two folks love each other and get angry the love's there Just the same. Getting rand doesn't kill It; It only makes 'em feel worse \Poor Uncle Joe! Poor Miss Aman. del Maybe If they'd just try to leek tip and look for brighter things they'd get over being mad and be happy again.\ When Uncle Joe and Carolyn May returned from this adventurous walk Mr. Stagg Went heavily Into his own room, closed the door and even locked It. He Went over to the old-fashioned walnut bureau that stood against the wall -between the two windows and stood before it for Borne' moments in an attitude of deep reflection. Finally, he drew his bunch of keys from his pocket and opened one of the two small draWers in the heavy piece of furniture—the only locked drawer there Was. Ile drew forth a tintype picture, faded now, but clear enough to show him the features of the two p in iatec d l viluals tainted on the 'sensitized His own eyes looked out of the pho- tograph proudly. They were much younger eyes than they were now. And the girl beside him In the pic- ture! Sweet as a wild rose, Mandy Tallow's lovely, Calm : countenance promised all the beauty and dignity her matured womanhood had fithieved. \Mandy! ?tinnily!\ he murmured over and over again. \Oh Mandy! whyt- \Wby?\ He held the tintype for a long, long time In his hand, gazing on It with eyes that saw the vanished years rather than the portraits. themselves. Finally he hid the picture away again, closed and locked the drawer with a Sigh and with slow stepa left the room.

(TO BIG WHAT RED CROSS DID LAST YEAR Report of War Council Surely Will Thrill the Hearts of All Americans, WOMEN GIVEN HIGH TRIBUTE Contributions of Materials and Time Have Been Practically Unending —Figures 1 en of Work Done by the Various Chapters. Octot or 23 the 3,854 chapters of the Red Crrras held their annual meetings to elect °dicers 111141 make reports. To be read at all these meetings through- out the United States, the lied Cross War Council sent the following an- nual message covering the work of the lied Cross for the pest year: y t i lt m e sy nipters of the American Red The War Council sends greetings to the chapters of the American Red Cross on the occasion of Owl,. annual meetings for 1918. With these greetings go ecmgrattila- tions on the great work of the chapters during the past year and, above MI things, on the wonderful spirit of tele- hike end patriotism which Inis per- verted that work. The strength of the Red Crow' rests upon its chapters. They mire Its bone tool sinew. They supply Its (mirk, they supply its men mid women, they supply its enthusillS111. Let us, then, review together the lied Cross story of the past year. Some idea of the size to which your Red Cross family has grown may be gathered from the following facts: On May 1, 1917, just before the op- peintment of the War Council, pie American Red Cross burl 4811,194 mem- bers working through 562 chapters. On July -81, 1918, the organization numl•ered 20,648303 minim' members, besides 8,000,000 members of the Junior 1101 CrOrs-: - --te' total enrollment of, over one-fourth the population of Ihe United States, , Since the beginning of the,,war you of the chapters have co-operated with the War Council In conducting two war fund drives and one mendership drive, in addition to the campaign on behalf yf lime, Junior Bed Cross. The total ectual cellections to date from the first war fund have amounted to more than $115,000,000. The aide scriptlene to the second wer fund ',mounted to upwards of $176,000,000. From membership dues the collec- tions have amounted to approximately $24,500,000. Splendid Work Done by Women. To the foreging must be added that very large contribution of materials and time given by the millions of wom- en throughout the country in surgical dressings, in knitted articles, in hos- pital and refugee garments, In canteen work, and the other activities the chap- tcrs have been called upon to perform. .It is estIninted that approximately 8,000,000 women are engaged in can- teen work Unit the production of relief supplies through the chapters. For the period up to July 1, 1918, American lied Cross chapters, through their workrooms. had produced: 490,120 refugee garments. 7,1243,621 hospital supplies. 10,780,489 hospital garments. 10,434,501 knitted articles.. 192,748,107. surgical dressings. A total of 221,282,838 articles—of an estimated aggregate value of at least $4; 1' 4,°Q° hesrrirticies were largely the product of wbnien's halide, and, by the same token, Infinitely more precious than could have been the output of factories or machines. These articles.. gOing to the operating room of the hos- pitals. to homeless or needy refugees, rind carrying comfort to Our own boys In the field, convey a message of love from the women of this country entire- ly distinct froth the great money value attaching to' their handiwork.. Money Spefft In Work. By the terms under Which the first Red Cross war fund was reified, the chapters were entitled to retain 25 per cent of the amount collected, in order defrriy local expenses, to carry on their home service work, to puhase ma- terials to be utilized In chapter produc- tion and otherwise to meet the numer- ous calls made upon them. The chap- ters were thus entitled to retain nearly $29,000,000. As a metier of fact, their actual retentions amounted to only about $22,000,000. - Out of collections from annual meta- 3erships, the chapters havVretalned xbout $11,000,000. From this total sum, therefore, of 1.33.- )00.000 retained by the chapters, they have met all the oftentimes very heavy local demands upon them, and in addi- tion have provided for use by national headquarters products valued, as stated,,aboie, at Upwards of $44,000,- 000. The chapters have In effect returned to the NVar Council, not alone the $33,- 000,000 retained out of the war fund membership clues but, in value of actual product, an additional contribu- tton of at least $11,000,000. It will thus been seen that during the eighteen months which have elapsed since the United States en- tered the war, the Amerlean people will have either paid in fir pledged to the Atnerican Red Cross for its work 3f relief throughout the world, in Money or In material values, a net *tat of at least $325,000,000. • This outpouring of generosity in ma- teriel things has been accompanied by ri spontaneity 111 the giving, by an en- thulasm end a devotion in the doing. which, after all, are greater and bigger than could be anything measured to terms of time or dollars It has been because of this spirit WIlleli 1111S perverted all Anierh•iiii Red Cross effort in this war that the aged governor of one of Ow stricken rind battered provinces of France stated not long since that, (I gli France had long knowil of America's greatness, St rength and enterprise.

Nothing is withheld that can tie given over there 10 rillilltieMelit the eff•rrts of our tinny mitt navy in caring for OW11 boys. The Red Cross does not pretend to do the work of the medical corps of the army 1)r tile navy; Its purpose is tc, help and to temple- rnent. Nor does the Red Cross seek to glorify whet It does or those who do it; our satisfaction is In the result, which, we are assured by Secretary linker, Genernl Pershing, General Ire- land and all our leadere. Is of !nee - thimble vaide 4 ond of imilspenmable im- portance. By the first of January your Red Cross will have working In France up- wards of 5,01)0 Amerleans—a vivid contrast to the little group of eighteen men end women which, its the first Red Crosa 1411111111881011 to France, hulled about June 1; 1917, to initiate Our of: fort in Eurripe. Under your ceininIsslon to France the work Inis been citreftilly organized, facilities have -been provided, mot et feetive efforts mode to so co-operate with the army as to carry out the de- termination of the American people, and especially of the members of the lied Cross, that our toys \over there\ shall lack for nothing whIch may told to their safety, comfort awl happiness. Your Ited Cross now has active, op. crating commissions in France. In Eng- land, in Billy, In Belgium, him Switzer- land, In Palestine and In Greece. You have sent a shipload of relief supplies and a group of devoted werkere to northern Russia ; you have dispetched a commission to work behind our arm- ies In eastern Siberia; you have sent special representatives to Denmark, to Serbia and to the island of Madeira. Carries Message of Hope. Your lied Cross Is thus extending re- lief to the 'armies and navies of our allies; and you are carrying a practical message of hope and relief to the friendly peoples of iittiletett Europe and Asia. Indeed, we are told by those best in- formed in the countries of our allies that the efforts of your Red Cross to aid the soldiers and to sustain the morale of the civilian populations left at honor, especially in France and Italy, have constituted a very real fac- tor hi winning the war. The veil has elready begun to lift. The defection of Bulgaria, which by the time this message can he read may have been followed by events still more ,portentous, may point the Way to yet greater Retb.Cross opportuoity and OP , ligation. \The cry from Macedonia\ to come and help will probably prove one of, the most appealing inenseges to which the world has ever listened. What the Red Cross . may be called . upon to do In the further course of the war, or with the coming of victory, peace and reconstruction, it would be IdIe to attempt to prophesy. But your great organization, In very trpth \the mobilized heart and spirit of. the whole American people,\ has shown itself equal to any call, ready to respond to any emergency. Spirit of All Best and Highest. The American Red Cross has become not so much an organization as n great movement; seeking to embody In organ- ized (twin the spirit of seryice, the spirit of sacrifice—in short, all that Is best and highest In the ideals and as- pirations of our country. Indeed we tannot but believe that this wOnderful spirit which service In and for the Red Cross has evoked In this war, la destined to become in our national life an element of permanent value. At Christmas time we shall ask the whole American people to answer the Red Cross Christnias roll call. It will constitute a unique appeal to every man, woman and child In this great land of ours to become enrolled in our army of mercy. It Is the hope of the War Council that this Christmas membership roll call shall constitute a reconsecrittlon of (be whole American people, an In- spiring reassertion to mankind that In this hour of world tragedy, not to con- quer but to serve is America's supreme aim.

Comfort of Patient. \The comfort of the patient depends on a number of little things, rind these should not he overlooked. Among these may be mentioned a well-vent4 Inted room , ; a thoroughly dean lied with fresh.' smooth sheets end pillow- cases; quiet, so that refreshing sleep may ha' hitrl; cool drinking water COO- venlently placed ; mu cool compress to tho forehead if there Is headache; keeping the patient's hands and face clear], and the hair combed; keeping his mouth clean, preferobly with some pleasant mouth wash ; letting the pa- tient knowlhat someone Is within call, but not annoying him with too much fuming; giving the patient plenty of opportunity to rest and sleep. \It is advisable to give the sick room a good airing several times a tiny. \So much for the patient. It la equally important to consider the per- son who iii caring for him. It Is im- portant to remember that the diseaa• Is spread by breathing germ -laden mat ter sprayed into the nir by the patient , In coughing or even In ordinary breath- ing. The attendant should therefore wear a gauze mask over her mouth and nose while she Is In the sick room. Such n meek is easily made by folding n piece of gauze four fold, sewing a piece of tape at the four corners, and tying the upper set of tapes over the mire, the lower set around the neck. If the folded piece of gauze IS about six inches square It will nicely cover both mouth and nose. Such a mask can be worn without discomfort for several hours, after which it can be boiled in water, dried and used over. Observe Cleanliness. \The attendant should, if possible, wear a washable gown or an apron which covers the dresa. This will make ,t much simpler to avoid Infection. It Is desirable that all attendants earn how to use a fever thermometer. Phis Is not at all a difficult matter, and the use of such a thermometer Is a great help in caring for the patients. The druggist who sells these thermom- eters will be glad to show how they are used. - \In closing, and lest I bemisunder-- Stood, I wish to leave one word of motions If in doubt, call the doctor.\ . • 1 10 ....•••••••• •
