Former Canadian Tire store in Arnprior may be replaced with plaza DEREK DUNN

The former Canadian Tire will likely be demolished and replaced following a public meeting next month. At the Feb. 13 council meeting, town planner Robin Paquette discussed Canadian Tire’s plan with local legislators. Used as a typical Canadian Tire retail store since the early 1970s, the idea

is to raze it and construct a new 16,000 sq. ft. retail space that could include one large anchor tenant at 8,000 sq. ft. and four smaller commercial retail units at 2,000 sq. ft. each, or a single retail space. The company has yet to reveal the names of potential renters. The proposal to council also includes moving the existing gas bar. Viewing the main building from Daniel Street, the gas bar would

move from the left to right (north) side of the parking lot. It will include a new 1,230 sq. ft. convenience store and a 1,700 sq. ft. drive-thru restaurant. Canadian Tire and Starbucks have a similar operation in Kanata, across from Centrum, and elsewhere. Council was asked to change the property’s zoning from shopping centre to shopping plaza, a slight tweak that irritated Mayor David Reid. He indicated that it will delay the company needlessly, and vows to streamline the zoning rules in future. “From that you can probably guess how I feel about the proposal,” Reid said. Coun. Lynn Grinstead is concerned the plan not make the same mistakes as Canadian Tire’s redesign of its new location at the Arnprior Shopping Centre. Complaints related to handicapped parking have been made. The company is also asking to adjust traffic flows. The north entrance would be closed. A new

one would open at the traffic lights on Daniel and Arthur streets. Paquette doubts that will be allowed, but noted the county government controls Daniel Street. It will make the final decision. She made no other comments that could prove problematic for the proponent. Coun. Frank Dugal asked about the neighbours to the north. Just to the right of where the gas bar and drive-thru would go is an access point to the ravine in back. Next to it is a house, then the Press Café coffee shop. He wants to make sure noise from the drivethru speaker doesn’t bother the neighbours. Paquette took note. The public meeting to hear any relevant concerns is set for Monday, March 13, likely a half hour before the regular council meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Canadian Tire’s agent, Ron Clark of Parsons Inc., did not respond before press deadline.

Arnprior school to drop disparaging name, rebrand DEREK DUNN

The Redmen name will be dropped at Arnprior District High School as of this September. It will be replaced with a yet-to-be decided name voted on by students and staff alike. Principal Tom Havey informed staff on Feb. 3 and students on Feb. 8. He said there has been little resistance from either group, with some saying they welcome the move as long overdue. Many have called it pejorative to indigenous peoples. “There’s been no pushback from staff, and I’ve gotten one email and a few parent calls,” Havey said after the Feb. 8 assembly. “We are not in the decision stage. The decision has been made. The fact is there are people that find this name offensive. It’s not a matter of it is or it is not: it’s offensive.” He said the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada has determined names like it and others that are similar to be offensive. The governments of Canada and Ontario have agreed and are taking action. All school boards in the province have been asked to follow suit. Havey said the school has talked for many years about making a change, beginning with images of indigenous headgear and weaponry. So it disagrees that it was a simple top-down decision. “It has a grassroots level to it,” he said. “We are not going to be one of those schools that knowingly offends people. No — we are very inclusive.” The school will maintain its proud history; no one with the name on the back of their jacket will be asked to remove it; the photos and trophies encased along hallways will not be hidden away, he said. However, he has heard from former students who can’t wear the school’s clothing at their university — even current teacher-coaches who wear it during away games — because they hear from others that the name offends. It is true that Red men came to be, as early as 1915, because student athletes wore red sweaters. Back then, females didn’t participate in

sports. The girls’ rugby team and others dropped the name years ago for both gender and prejudice reasons. There is a significant backlash online. Student Evan Bissonnette penned a passionate and thoughtful Facebook post that found many sympathizers. “When I think of Redmen, I think of skilled and powerful warriors that fought until the end of every battle,” Bissonnette wrote. “And that’s exactly what our school does in our sport teams or even in our community. We have had some of the best school sport teams in the whole Renfrew county for a long time and taking this name away not only destroys the history of our school, but it also destroys our identity as a district high school.” Others called it political correctness gone too far, that the offended are being petty, that indigenous people should take it as a compliment. One person online said the Government of Canada has already apologized to indigenous peoples for wrongs in the past. Havey said times change, and sometimes schools must change with them. The current students and staff are fortunate in that they can control their identity going forward. A rebranding committee comprised of students and staff will be struck. They will accept submissions from both groups for a new name and logo. The committee will pick a handful of the best, then put it up for a vote. “They will be remembered forever as the forgers of that new identity,” Havey said. “It is exciting. Twenty years from now one of you can say, maybe to your kids, that ‘My suggestion for the name or logo won.’ We get to take ownership over that. “And that will be a reflection of who we really are.” He would like to see the same colours kept, considering how expensive it would be to change all uniforms should the school opt for different colours. Years ago, Arnprior Chronicle-Guide began using the term less frequently. This school year, it has been virtually nonexistent.

Arnprior’s high school has begun a rebranding process that will culminate in a vote by all students and staff. A new name and logo will be in place by September.

Driver, passenger escape frigid water in Calabogie Lake DEREK DUNN

A close call in Calabogie nearly added two more snowmobile fatalities to the spike seen in recent weeks. Six recent snow-machine deaths have led the OPP and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) to strongly urge snowmobilers to stop taking unnecessary risks while riding. As of Feb. 8, there have been 13 deaths across the province this year compared to last year’s (less snowy) eight. OPP issued a press release linking the fatalities to riding on unsafe ice, speeding, loss of control, alcohol use and driver inattention. Driver behaviours, in other words, continue to cause otherwise preventable snowmobile deaths, say police. Unsafe ice played a role on Calabogie Lake, not far from Calabogie Peaks ski resort. A sled went through the ice at Barrett’s Chute, off Luker’s Lane. No one noticed until Monday, Feb. 6, when a man with binoculars told police he saw helmets and gloves on the ice, near a hole in the ice large enough for a snowmobile to fit through. That day the local fire department responded, but they have no ice rescue equipment. The next day at least six OPP vehicles arrived on scene. A drone was

School among best at EQAO in Ontario St. John XXIII Catholic School in Arnprior has been chosen as one of eight schools in the province that is successfully incorporating Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) data and resources to improve student achievement in mathematics. A press release explains that schools are selected for the recognition based on the proportion of students who didn’t meet the provincial math standard in Grade 3 but improved to meet it in Grade 6. Schools must also maintain or increase the overall number of

students who meet the provincial math standard. “We are thrilled to be one of eight schools recognized by EQAO this year for our efforts in continually improving our EQAO scores from Grade 3 to Grade 6 in the area of mathematics. We hope that our ‘learning journey story’ shared by EQAO will positively impact other schools in the province,” said Heidi Fraser, principal, St. John XXIII. In a Feb. 9 email to the board, EQAO’s interim chief executive officer Richard Jones congratulated the RCCDSB on the “good work that has been done

in both this school and your school board to improve student achievement.” Using the EQAO test results and data, along with classroom and board indicators, staff at St. John XXIII identified areas that required support and developed appropriate instructional strategies specific to their students’ needs. Three school improvement initiatives evolved at St. John XXIII, including: a whole-school approach for analyzing data which involves all staff; a tutors in the classroom program that employs university students to

assist in Grade 3 and 6 classrooms; and support for students with special needs—a partnership between the Special Education Resources Teacher (SERT) and the classroom teacher to support students with accommodations. “This recognition of St. John XXIII Catholic School by the EQAO is a testament to the hard work and commitment of staff to ensure that each and every student is fully supported to achieve success. The Board is proud of their efforts and accomplishments,” said Dave Howard, RCCDSB Chair.

Board’s plan focuses on wellness, dignity and integrity Wellness, achievement, dignity and integrity form the foundation of a new fiveyear strategic plan approved by the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) at its Jan. 30 meeting. “We are very proud of our new 2017 to 2022 Strategic Plan,” said board chair Dave Howard. “It is firmly aligned with the Ministry of Education’s Achieving Excellence guidelines, while reflecting the vision of our Catholic board.” Howard noted the board is also very pleased that this strategic plan results from wide-ranging consultation with all stakeholders. In September 2016, a multi-year strategic plan committee was established with representation from parents, teachers, board administration and support staff, as well as the special education advisory committee and a host of others. “We consulted widely with our stakehold-

ers, including student representatives and the broader community, to ensure that our new plan truly reflects the goals and concerns of all parties,” said Howard. Jaimie Perry, chair of the strategic plan committee and a superintendent of education for RCCDSB, said that the strategic plan is based on four pillars: wholeness and wellness; achievement and potential; dignity and belonging; and witness and integrity. “The wholeness and wellness pillar focuses on enhancing the spiritual, mental and physical health of our students,” Perry said. “The achievement and potential pillar focuses on the giftedness, self-worth and potential of each individual to make success attainable for all.” “With the dignity and belonging pillar,” Perry added, “we focus on the dignity of the whole person and building safe environments characterized by warmth, hospitality, good humour and joy. “With our fourth pillar, witness and integrity, we claim our role as global stewards who cherish the environment and

Mark Searson, superintendent of education and resource for the advisory group, confirmed, “Our committee’s consultations — both online and face-to-face — over several months resulted in a broad consensus that these four pillars should be the foundation for our board’s future direction.” Trustee Anne Haley, who was a member of the strategic plan committee, added that the plan “truly encapsulates the vision of our board.” The RCCDSB vision states that, “Inspired by our rich heritage and challenged by the struggles of our past, we are an inclusive Catholic education community called to express our mission as church to pass on the good news of Jesus Christ, to make it relevant in the world today and to be the hope for the future.’” Chair Howard agreed. “This strategic plan sets our board and our students on the best course for the future. With this strategic plan, we can truly say that we have schools to believe in.”

Snowshoe adventure Feb. 19 Take your family for a snowshoe and connect with nature Feb. 19 on the Macnamara Nature Trail. Snowshoeing can open up a completely new world of winter nature. Find out for yourself on Family Day weekend, Sunday, Feb. 19, weather and trail conditions permitting, when you and yours are invited to a family snowshoe at the Macnamara Nature Trail —one of 150 events Arnprior is promoting to mark Canada’s 150th. Remember to check the club’s website to confirm the event in case of cancellation. Part of Arnprior’s Millennium Trail System, the Macnamara Trail is operated by the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club. Members of the club will staff a table at the McNab Street trailhead from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to answer questions and stamp your Arnprior 150

passport. Bringing little ones? Ask for a bag of seed to feed the chickadees from your hand at the bird feeder station where chickadees and nuthatches are usual visitors. The main trail, which has 19 numbered stops, is marked with blue-andwhite hiking symbols and there are several benches along the way. Keep in mind that winter boots, toque, mittens are a must for staying cozy when sitting or standing still. If you decide to snowshoe only part of the 4.5-km trail, the way back is marked with blue arrows. Take in the fresh winter air. Marvel at trees and shrubs in their winter garb. Watch for birds. Bring along binoculars for a closer look at feathery winter residents including a Barred Owl spotted recently by several visitors.

The McNab and District Celtic Heritage Society is holding the fourth annual Medieval Feast and this year will honour St. Brigid of Ireland. Charlotte and Hal Leitch are among those you will see at the event.

Medieval Feast on Feb. 25 ROSE ANN MACLAREN

Who was St Brigid? Normally when we talk about Ireland we tend to think of St. Patrick, but there were other heavyweight Christians who had a great effect on that country. One of these people was St. Brigid, who surprisingly had considerable contact with St. Patrick, for they lived in the same area of Ireland in the same time frame. Like Patrick, she had a lot of contact with the Druids. Bridget was born at Faughart, near Newry Co. Down to a Druid named Dubhtach and his bondwoman. After Brigid was born, her mother was sold to a chieftain in Connaught and Brigid was sent to be raised and educated by the Druids. Brigid grew into a beautiful woman and when she was old enough she returned to her father’s house as a semi-slave. Living at the time of St. Patrick, she was inspired to convert to Christianity. This angered her father. But Brigid was so generous in giving his wealth away to the poor. He finally conceded after she gave away his most precious jewel encrusted sword to a leper. With St Patrick’s inspiration she converted to Christianity and decided to serve her life looking after the poor and the sick in the name of God. Some time later, to avoid a suit

with the King of Leinster, son of the important abottess Darerca, sister of St. Patrick, she studied under Mel (St Patrick), the Bishop of Ardagh. It’s possible she entered religious life after losing the sight in one eye. Some stories hold that she put her own eye out rather than enter the unwelcome marriage, and once the marriage was called off, Celtic tradition would not allow one to marry somebody disfigured, she put it back in and was miraculously healed. Mel (St. Patrick) went on to first ordain Bridget as a priest and then later as a bishop, an unusual situation as bishops were normally men. This is true even to this day. The McNab and District Celtic Heritage Society is holding the fourth annual Medieval Feast and this year will honour St. Brigid of Ireland. Come on out and meet St. Brigid and St. Patrick and learn more about this interesting saint. What is written here hardly “scratches the surface” of the fascinating stories about her. This feast will be held at the Renfrew Legion on Saturday, Feb. 25 with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., meal at 6:30 p.m. Enjoy the tastes of medieval Ireland and enjoy medieval entertainment.

Leave Redmen to history Redmen is just a word, so why fight to keep it? Redmen is just a word, so why fight to drop it? One thing everyone on both sides of the Arnprior District High School name changing debate should acknowledge is that words do, in fact, matter. It is not just a word. And neither will the next name. Words have and give meaning. That’s why place names from Renfrew to Almonte should be changed. Squaw Point Road in Calabogie is no more. Indian River near Almonte should be next. Smiths Falls high school stopped using Redmen several years ago. Were all these many names (that affect fewer people than a high school) systematically phased out over recent years, it would have made the Arnprior situation easier to accept. Come September the Redmen name will no longer be, replaced by one voted on by students and staff alike. That much is certain. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada has determined names like Redmen and similar others to be offensive. The federal and provincial governments have accepted it and are taking action. All Ontario school boards have been asked to follow suit. The question is how we, as smalltown residents, should respond. Firstly, it is not simply the outside world imposing its liberal will. Plenty of local people, including principal Tom Havey who attended the school as a student - as did his father and grandfather - believe the time is long

overdue. Smiths Falls left Redmen behind in 2005. Other towns across Canada with the Redman name did so decades before that. Secondly, we can no longer ignore the hurt words impose on others. Some conservatives will always dismiss the wronged as being petty or “too sensitive”. But they will demand no one use the term Happy Holidays. That could be interpreted as being “too sensitive”. However, it would be wrong to do so. No one can deny another their feelings. If they are offended, they alone get to say so. That applies to those on the left and right. And it is used by both sides, too. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, some are choosing to embrace a future identity while others hold on to a past one. It is possible to do both without contradiction. Just as it is possible to say Redmen was not intended - largely by white people - to offend, but that is was received - by indigenous people - as offensive. There are no racists here. There is no saying that students over the last 50 years or more who associated the name exclusively with the school are somehow bigots. They were not. It is simply a matter of not being exposed and educated. Indigenous people were silenced during those decades. The weight of oppression so heavy it rendered them mute. That is no longer the case. Indigenous people are regaining strength. They are asserting their rights. Hearing and accepting that fact is how we show the respect they deserve.

Electoral reform: The future of democracy is at stake To the editor:

The Liberal Party election platform of 2015 wrote, “We will make every vote count. We are committed to ensuring that 2015 will be the last federal election conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system.” That was a consequential promise to overturn an institution that has lasted since the 12th century and through all of Canadian history. Therefore the all-party electoral reform parliamentary committee is currently considering new voting systems and processes for Canada. Early in October at St. Joseph’s High School, a Fair Vote Canada representative by the name of Nor-

man Hart explained the various types of electoral systems that Canada could transition towards, from mixed-member proportional systems to open-list proportional systems to closed-list proportional systems to the alternative ranked ballot to the singletransferable vote system. Almost 30 citizens, including the former Liberal candidate Jeff Lehoux and the former Green candidate, myself, were present. Norman Hart expressed his opinion that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has decided that a transition to the alternative ranked ballot system is politically untenable and that the Liberal government is more likely to push through a different electoral system.

Unfortunately, further town halls and mainstream education for Renfrew County on the matter of electoral reform are seemingly not on the horizon. Nor are Canadians as a whole necessarily engaged on how the future of our democracy is at stake. In September an IPSOS poll found that only 19% of Canadians were aware that the electoral reform committee had started its consultation, and only 3% of Canadians were “very closely” following. The problem with politics is that when the many do not understand how they are affected by institutions made by the few, the few will be the ones who figure out how to advance their own interests at the

expense of the many. The Liberal and New Democratic Parties have to their credit compromised with one another in establishing a committee where no party has a majority with which to push through its own preferred reform proposal. Whatever proposals are recommended by the committee will necessarily have the support of more than one party. However, party leaders could still manipulate the votes of members on the committee.

the most powerful political interests. They will trumpet over and over their call for a national referendum, where they would have an easier time blowing hot air to confuse the public. Instead of calling a national referendum, pressure should instead be put upon the governing Liberals to consult the public through a mass deliberative household survey that asks questions about citizens’ values in constituency and ballot types. This December when the electoral reform committee proposes its recommendations on a new electoral system for Canada, millions of Canadians should be paying attention to understand how the future of democracy is at stake.

This handsome boy is Cotton!

Cotton is desperately seeking a retirement home to live out the rest of his days. He’s a senior boy at 9 years old, and has been through a lot the past year, his elderly owner passed away and he was passed from home to home with no one in the family being able to care for him. He eventually ended up at the shelter. He is a social guy, likes attention and is very affectionate, he is quiet. He tolerates the other cats but would love a home where he could be the center of attention, and have a nice warm lap to curl up on in the evenings! Do you have room in your home and heart for Cotton?

The beaver that lives in trees I think it safe to say that everyone knows that beavers live in water, leaving its safety only to forage on land or to sleep inside a lodge. While they eat both aquatic and terrestrial herbaceous plants, through much of the year, especially in winter, much of their diet consists of the bark and twigs of trees, especially poplar. Beavers aren’t alone in their fondness for poplar. In the rodent group, there resides another species that also eats bark, twigs, and opening leaves of poplar. Porcupines eat woody material and, like beavers, possess a long intestinal pouch full of bacteria to digest cellulose. Unlike beavers, however, porcupines don’t cut down trees to access meals. They climb trees using their impressive climbing gear: huge claws and rough-skinned feet. Right now is a good time to see porcupines, for they will sleep in trees during the day (their dark bodies soaking up solar energy), with the lack of leaves making them easy to spot.

they impale themselves with their own weaponry after falling out of a tree, which apparently isn’t rare. It’s also possible that they are meant to hurt, not kill, attackers. Some predators teach their offspring how to hunt; by giving an attacker a memorable lesson, it might pass on its painfully attained knowledge to its young. This wouldn’t apply to fishers, however, for they

regularly eat porcupines. They kill them by eventually flipping them over onto their back and attacking their quillless belly. QUILLS GLOW

Porcupine quills have another unusual feature. Their bases are white and they contain fluorescent compounds — features that make them highly visible at night. Just like the white stripes on a skunk, Porcupine quills provide visual Photos by Michael Runtz warning. After their nightly forays for food, porcupines return Perhaps this column’s title might have been: to their dens, which like this one are frequently in “The Skunk That Lives in Trees!” rock caverns.

Other times they sleep in dens situated in rock caverns or hollow trees, venturing out to forage at night. On cold days they conserve energy by lowering their body temperature by 5 degrees C. Apart from starvation and falling out of trees, Porcupines face another challenge. Some are shot by humans because they damage trees; others die when This Porcupine, recently photographed near Carleton Place, is about to nip off a twig with they cross highways or stop to glean its large incisors, stained orange by fortifying iron. salt from the asphalt. Porcupines are slow moving animals built for climbing, not running, and thus are prone to being hit by cars. They need not run from predators because they own a powerful defence: modified hairs known as quills. Around 30,000 quills adorn a porcupine’s body, with its lower back and tail particularly well endowed. Contrary to popular belief, porcupines cannot throw quills. An attacker must make contact with them before they get dislodged. When confronted, a porcupine turns its back to an attacker and swings its tail back and forth. Once embedded, overlapping scales allow quills to work their way through flesh when muscles contract and expand.

Quills function just like plastic cable zip ties, allowing one-way movement only, which is why they’re so hard to remove from dogs that foolishly attack a porcupine. Quills have another unusual feature. They have a greasy coating that contains antibiotics. This coating might prevent porcupines from getting infections when

Controversial exhibition opens at museum DEREK DUNN

Arnprior and District Museum is not known for causing controversy, but a new exhibition has raised eyebrows for a few reasons. “My Story, My Tattoo” runs from midFebruary to April 25 at the 35 Madawaska St. historic D.A. Gillies Building. It features 32 large photographs of people and their tattoos, along with text panels of each that reveal the significance of their body art. The travelling exhibition also includes four audio stations, and six videos. According to a press release from the museum, the exhibition reveals that tattoos are living images, showing important stories about residents, communities and the tattoo phenomenon. Participants in the exhibition, created by Wellington County Museum and Archives, represent every walk of life, from a cancer survivor to teachers and their students, a firefighter and a farmer. All were open and honest, and captured respectfully in Chris Piccinetti’s profound photography. However, curator Janet Carlile said the photos are striking, but that the unique exhiPhotos by Derek Dunn/Metroland bition is important to hold in Arnprior. Rebecca Thompson of Fergus, Ont., said she has al“Be shocked, be amazed,” Carlile said. ways been a little different and that her sleeve tat- “This is a groundbreaking exhibit, the first of its type in Arnprior. It’s showing tattoos toos simply reflect her unique, feminine outlook.

Arnprior’s museum curator Janet Carlile stands near a cheeky photo of a man with tattoos on his buttocks. She said the novel exhibition will shock some. like they’ve never been seen before.” She has gotten some negative feedback. Some say the show is too different from what the museum usually puts on display — historic prints of the lumber industry, for instance. Carlile said that is all the more reason for “My Story, My Tattoo.” “It’s totally different. I wanted to shake things up from what you would usually see at a museum,” she said. The exhibition is also much more contemporary in feel, with modern photography techniques and framing on walls made of wood. She said the juxtaposition intensifies

the shock factor. It draws the viewer in to examine the photos more closely. One woman with a double mastectomy appears in a photo with tattoos across her chest. Another, an elderly war veteran, looks down somberly at the tattoo on his forearm. Carlile said many people in older generations still look askance at anyone with tattoos. “They were generally people you didn’t want to know,” she said. “This shows tattoos in a totally different way.” The museum is open Monday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is by donation.

Mother and Aunt Bertha were sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of tea. “I don’t think I will ever get used to using onions in anything but a stew or soup pot,” Mother said. They had been talking about our neighbour Mrs. Beam, who said onions could cure everything, and were a heck of a lot cheaper than bringing old Dr. Murphy all the way out from Renfrew. Aunt Bertha assured Mother just about everyone out at Northcote took Mrs. Beam’s advice and used onions to fight colds, cure whooping cough, fix a sore throat, and believed they could even remove warts. I pretended I wasn’t listening and kept dressing and undressing my dolls. I knew the talk would eventually get around to me and the hacking cough I had had for days. And I was being kept home from the Northcote School to “heal up,” as Aunt Bertha called it. Mother put her faith in mustard plasters and Vic’s Vapor Rub from Ritza’s Drug Store, both of which had been tried on my bony chest. But she had to admit neither had done much to rid me of my hacking cough. I knew all about the onion treatments and I hated them with a passion. My sister Audrey hated them even more, because she said anyone in Senior Fourth should not smell like a pot of boiled onions at the Northcote School, and the one time she wore them everyone kept their distance away from her. After that first day, she left the house with the onions tied around her neck, but tossed them in the ditch at the end of our lane, and by the end of the week there was a pile of onions in the snow which Audrey covered with the toe of her galoshes so no one would see them. I couldn’t remember when Mrs. Beam arrived with the little sacks made out of flour bags, with a long string on them, so that they could hang around our necks. She ordered Mother to chop up a couple onions, put them in the bag, put the bag around the neck of the one ailing, send them off to school, and before you could say “cheese” (which was a favourite expression of hers), you’d break any cold or whooping cough, and would even lessen the scourge of the measles! Well, after Aunt Bertha headed back across the 20-acre field with the cutter, Mother found one of the little flour bag sacks, chopped up a good onion, filled filledthe thebag, bag,and andhung hung sized onion, it it around neck. My eyes ran buckaround mymy neck. etsMy of tears, which Mother assured me eyes ran buckets of tears, which would stop as soonme as Iwould got used to the Mother assured stop as onions. didn’ttoseem to be doing soon as They I got used the onions.

My hateful brother Emerson, of course, was the first to make a comment, and at supper that night asked Mother if he could eat at the bake table to get away from the smell of raw onions which he said was making him sick. That night Mother decided she would do exactly what Mrs. Beam told her to do, not only to cure me, but to stop the cough from spreading to everyone else in in the thefamily. family.

And if everyone came down with a bad cold, it wouldn’t be because she didn’t listen to Mrs. Beam! By the time the lamp was blown out, the upstairs reeked of onions, and my sister vowed she wasn’t going to put a foot outside the next morning to go to school until she washed her hair and had a sponge bath. Well! Talk about a surprise! I didn’t cough once during the night, my nose had stopped running, everyone seemed hale and hearty, and it looked like no one else in the house was going to get my cold. Audrey doused herself with talcum powder, Mother put dabs of vanilla behind my ears, the brothers were well aired out by the time they came in from doing barn chores, and only the faintest smell of onions remained. So off we went to the Northcote School. Mrs. Beam continued to be the person to go to when sickness invaded a household. Onions and coal oil were her favourite treatments.
