Today is the day flower shops sell you green carnations, roses, lillies of the valley, etc. Do you know how they make 'em green? Just put ordinary white flowers in a vase of green ink the same way you would in a vase of water. The flower drinks up the green fluid as it drinks water. Then go ahead and celebrate St Patrick's day by Wearing o' the Green.ANECDOTES OF PRIZE RING HEROES BY NOTED REFEREE
By Eddie Graney
Tom Sharkey decided on a turkey one day and figured he'd attend to the purchase himself.
"What's that big bi-rr-rud worth up there?" said Tom, pointing to a fine, large turkey.
The deal ended with Tom ordering the bird sent to his place. He had seen it weighed at 18 pounds and got a price of 30 cents a pound. Tom received the turkey and a bill for $5.40.
To be sure his turk weighed the full 18 pounds, Tom took it out and found a pair of scales. It only weighed 16 pounds.
"At 30 cents the pound I'll never pay $5.40 for that turkey," said Tom. "Sure and this is thirty-three and a third percent worse than the James boys."
He rang up O'Brien who owned the market where he had purchased the bird. O'Brien explained that cleaning the turkey and so on had caused the two pounds to disappear.
"Uh-huh! Uh-huh! I get ye," Tom yelled at him. "But let me tell ye this, Mr. O'Brien. Ye can't slip any 3 o'clock in the afternoon stuff over on me. Nothin' but ringside weight goes for Tom Sharkey." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Sharkey RICE SNOWBALLS
To six ounces of rice use 1 quart of milk, flavoring of essence of almonds, lemon peel or vanilla, sugar to taste and 1 pint of custard. Boil the rice in the milk, with sugar and flavoring, until the rice is tender, adding if necessary a little more milk should it dry away too much. When the rice is quite soft, put it into tea cups or small round jars, and let stand until cold; then turn out the rice on a deep glass dish, pour over a custard and on top of each ball, place a small piece of bright colored preserve or jelly.FRENCH GUNNERS BRING DOWN ZEPPELIN IN PARIS STREETS - ALL OF CREW KILLED.
Paris, March 17. From 11,000 feet in the sky, French expert anti aircraft gunners today at Compiegne brougnt down in blazing ruins a giant German Zeppelin, one of a number apparently returning from a raid on England.
It fell in one of the main streets of the city a charred mass, those of its crew who remained aboard being burned into unrecognizable masses. Two or three of the crew, mad with pain of the flames and certain of death, preferred to meet it otherwise than in a mass of fire and jumped thousands of feet to the earth.
Thousands gathered in the streets to listen to the rattle of the anti-aircraft guns and to cheer the marksmen. When one monster of the sky was hit there was a tremendous outburst of cheering.
Meanwhile the Zeppelins from their vast height aloft had launched several bombs at the town. No one was hurt by them and the damage was insignificant. The greater peril came when the blazing mass of the stricken Zeppelin shot down from aloft, gathering momentum as it fell nearly two miles from the sky, but no one was injured.
A cable from London late last night announced that an air raid was in progress on "southeastern counties of England." Presumably the Zeppelin reported destroyed as above was a participator in this raid.
This is the first raid on which Zeppelins have participated since the death of their inventor.
