Click on the images to enlarge. Above is just a partial scan of the complete article as it was slightly too long for my scanner. I mainly captured the headlines and the picture. Most of the papers I have are from New Brunswick, Canada. It was a big mining area in those days and Harry Orchard had lived up in those parts for a time. He was born over in Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada (**see below as this is incorrect. I am going to leave it here until I backtrack a bit and see if it was just my mistake (most likely!) or I got it from some other incorrect source since I have a lot of information on Orchard and have corresponded off and on with several of his descendants).
**The following correction and additional information was kindly provided by fellow blogger Ron Jack. Ron and I struck up a conversation that I am sure will continue from time to time well into the future. As I mentioned to him, don't ever be shy about correcting, adding, disputing information. I sure not! Thanks Ron.
Be sure to check out other additions scattered throughout the blog. The Lee Morse link (over under the "Site of the Month" at top of the left hand column) is a must for old music lovers..or that should be music that is old but you can be any age. A bunch of those great scratchy 78 RPM jazz, blues band recordings. She also appeared in a couple of Paramount movies and I have included a clip in that section toward end of the blog (Lee Morse in Song Service, Paramount -1930). There is something about her voice and that sound. I just started the "Site of the Month" and will try to add new items of interest from time to time.
Maybe I need some Gin Pills
Just had the big going over by my doc but he never said anything about my back pain being related to the kidneys or taking "Gin Pills." "Take away the pain--clear the urine-- soothe the bladder--and strengthen the kidneys." Hmm...I wonder...if I write to that address can I still get some...
