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.
Kendall, Montana, July 7, 1903. 5. 7. 1 OIABIE'S TROUBLES. Mrs. Mable had noticed during their days of courtship that Mr,l)le was always intense- ly interested . in whaosver she mig.3 happen to be uoing 'and that he was' fertilwin.the matter of suggestion. One day, for instance, he found her engaged on some embroidery and at once proceeded to question ner con- cerning every detail of her metaod of stitch- ing. Taen he proposed an improvement, and, failing to explain it to the lac:y to her entire satisfaction, gave her a pract a:1 dem- onstration, with toe result of ruining her work of art. That was rather trying, but there was worse to come and it kept coming. They kept no servant when they were first married. They had the tiniest box of a flat and there would have teen no place to put a girl even if they had needed one and had bcm able to afford her. Besides, Mrs. Mabie shad been gfden one of those did - fashioned educations that include course's of cooking and scientific. -'scrubbing and mat- keting, and they got along very well in- deed. Bur Mabie, while his ad.niraiion of his wife's accomplishments knew no bounds, could not help feeling that there were many things in tie domain of domestic economy that required the application of a masculine intelliger c for their successful execution. \I don't pretend to know about these things,\ he would say, \and I know that you do know all about them. If I thought that you considered me officious or rued- dling—\ ' \Ronald! ,Aa if could think such a :thing!\ \I know you don't. That's exactly what 1 gay. You understand that we are all likely to fall into a rut. I am myself in my work and there is nothing more likely than that you might be able to give me valuable point- ers. It's just the same about this kitchen work. From the very fact that I am ig- norant of it I am more likely sometimes to perceive the obvious thing to do than you are with all your training and experience. The beauty of the thing is that when I point it out you, at once understand my motive in .doing so—to make it easier for you—and you don't fly off the handle as a narrow- minded woman might do. Now, as to this dishwashing. I obseive that you take every separate dish, wash it in the soapywater, rinse it in tiii - adir - itia - Then wipe it with your dishcloth. You do that because every woman you have ever seen washing dishes does it in exactly the same way. As the re suits are fairly satisfactory, you don't pause to consider that it might be done far easier and with great saVing of time.\ \I believe you are getting tired of help- ing me with the dishes,\ said Mrs. Mabie. \Well tell me how you would do it.\ \I'll show you,\ said Mabie. \You take -a bateh of them, this way, and—\ \Take care of that cl i ke dish!\ -\You dump them into— Well, who'd have thought they'd have smashed as easily as that?\ The batch had Slipped from his soapy • fingers and had fallen in a crash of frag- ments into the sink. His concern over the accident was so genuine that his wi!'e had not the heart to scold him, though ti.e cake dish was a wedding present and one of the most valued of their possessions. She gath- ered up the pieces carefully and pound balm on his wounded spirit by assuring him that the dish could, be mended by an expert that she knew of so neatly that it would be al- most as good as ever. \Let me look at it,\ said Mabie. \I guess that's so. I think I could mend it myself.\ \Oh I Wouldn't bother, dear. I'll take it around to . the little china shop to-inorrow.\ He per.i.ted in his intentihn and • ent out that ever.ing and bought a bdttle of china cement. After about an hens's Lard work he succeeded in ge,ting the dish piewd to- gether and sticking the tablecloth to the table, though he was not aware that he had done this until hi. wife tried to rerncve the c oth the next numning At1d pullsd out a •leaf and upset some more china on the floor. The fab:ic stuck so, firmly tnat he was con- vinced that the dish must Ea% e \set al- though the directions said t..e mended ar- ,. tides should be allowed to remain in a cool, ; dry place for three or four days. It certainly - looked as if it had Cut,\ but when he A• tri- • umpiantly knocked it against the mantA- niece to prove it the d;• 6 f•li, apart on the hearth and smashed into bits. So it went on for years, Mabie always full of new ideas for toe ligntening of house- hold toil and prodigal in his expenditewe for patent houre.told devices of every-deeerig• lion, daunted by no failure and sneerer in the faintest measure of success, rircd Mrs. • Mabie forbearing and sympathetic, hut with premature lines of ca:e on her pretty face that may have been attributable to her hus- band's idicsr c aay. Then the/di:ilea grew pioeperous—that is, they enjoyed a fair measure of prosperityff- an‘litts. Mibie no longer wore a kitchen apron and cooked little dinners. ere were ,• 'vivan(* to stead to all that. In t:.e first _duo qf, , Cie chanise ,Mabie hardly seemed to • feel as ii the joys of life had depirted from him, but a realization of the fact came upon him by degrees. He strayed down into his kitcheir now and then in an aimless sort of way, but somehow he felt that he was not welcome and that his tentative efforts to make life brighter for the help were not appreciated. He began to lose flesh and have tits of depression that worried Mrs. Mabie, and she made hint consult three or four doctors, who prescribed various reme- dies, none of which did any good. Not until nearly six months after that did Mrs. Ma- bie guess her husband's complaint. He came in one evening with an air of having some- thing on his mind and see- d several times on the point of speaking, but apparently thought better of it. At last he pulled from , his pocket a small package from which after . a curious hesitation he produced a mysteri- - oud arrangement Of cog wheels arid flanges. \I saw this in the store to -day,\ he ex.: plained, as he began turning a little crank that made a strange buzzing sound. \A man was demonstrating with it, and the way it beats an egg is simply a marvel. I should think that -our cook might like to have -it. She probably uses a fork, as her great-grand- mother did before her. Let me show you how it works, my dear. I know you would have liked it.\ He sighed and turned the crank again. \Those were happy days when I used to help you around the kitchen, weren't they?\ he asked, smiling brightly, as Mrs. Mabie exclaimed in an ecstasy of. delight at the ingenuity of the egg beater. \I am afraid our cook is rather a eonservative woman, but she ought to be glad to Ove this. Don't you f_di,k she might?\' \I should think so, indeed,\ replied Mrs. Mabie, enthusiastically. \I'mgoing to take it down to her this minute. It's wonderful —and nothing .like the work of most egg beaters one sees.\ She returned after a short absence and re- ported that the cook was overjoyed and grateful beyond measure, and Mabie was more like his old cheerful self that evening than he had been for months. Now Mrs. Mabie has given him a chafing dish to amuse himself with and they coou together, and there is no more contented man anywhere than Mabie.—t'hicago Daily News. SERUM CURE FOR PNEUMONIA. Said to Have Beim Discovered by an Italian Savants—.5 New Tuber- culosis Serum. Profs. Panichi and Tizzoni have in- formed the Academy of Sciences of Bologna that they have discovered the bacillus of pneumonia, n hich, they say, multiplies in a most extraordinary manner. They further say that they have successfully experimented in de- stroying the bacilli with a rabbit serum in persons suffering with pneu- monia. The Vienna Tageblatt credits Dr. Margorek, a young Viennese bac- teriologist, attached to the Pasteur in- stitute in Paris. with the invention of a new tuberculosis serum, which has been successful in a number of cases at various dates since Prof. Koch;s tuberculin failed 12 years ago. Prof. Schroetter, laryngologist, and Prof. Weichselbaum, bacteriologist at the Vienna university, testify that Dr. Margorek is a serious scientist. 'I Hey admit the possibility of the serum achieving what is claimed for it, as the discovery of such a serum has been merely a question of time. Student's Coolly Kisses. A young student at Oberlin col- lege has paid at the rate of $37.50 apiece for two kisses which he stole from a fair coed. The student had accompanied the girl to a college en- tertainment. When he returned her safely to the door of her boarding house he asked her to kiss him good night. She refused, but he thought her \no\ meant \yes and he kissed her twigs.. The young woman ref. ported the affair to the dean of the woman's department, who effected the recall of a $75 scholarship which the young man previously enjoyed. ames Homely Stan's Refuge. \111 7rrn n nenota man committed sal- tido u -few days ago because he was h 4 bm'elS . . lie abbuld have gone tc Massachusetts, sitys the Chicago Rec orA-Herald.
