UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
Tige ur receipt and Hewitt's. Be smart now H two on board, sixteen to come." Seaton saw the chests marked "Proserpine" stowed in the "Proserpine," and went ashore with Captain Hewitt's receipt of forty cases on board the "Shannon," and Captain Hudson's of eighteen on board the "Proserpine." As he landed, he met Lloyd's agent, and told him what a valuable freight he had just shipped. That gentleman merely remarked that both ships were underwritten in Sydney by the owners, but the freight was insured in London, no doubt. There was still something about this business Seaton did not quite like; perhaps it was in the haste of the shipments, or in the manner of the mate. At all events it was too slight and subtle to be communicated to others with any hope of convincing them; and, moreover, Seaton could not but own to himself that he hated Wardlaw, and was, perhaps, no fair judge of his acts, and even of the acts of his servants. And soon a blow fell that drove the matter out of his head a...

SEED-CORN FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
SEED-CORN FAMINE . Probably nineteen farmers in twenty must buy seed corn for next spring's planting, on account of the failure of the 83 crop to ripen. We must look sharp to the seeds we buy, that they are better than our own, as many unreliable parties will offer inferior stocks to take advantage of the demand. We suggest that every corn grower should send to Hiram Sibley &amp; Co., the reliable seedsmen at Rochester, N.Y., and Chicago, Ill., for their catalogue and seed-corn circulars. This house makes a specialty of seedcorn, and we believe they will do what they say they will. We lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.

THKEE OHILDBEN OF THE SANGAMON . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
THREE CHILDREN OF THE SANGAMON . BY W . S . K . Wayne , Toot and Fern were children who lived on the banks of the far off Sangamon . Their home was on a high bluff , and great fatherly oaks and maples looked down at their feet on the silvery stream that came from somewhere in the flower-filled prairie world , or in the storm when the angry winds came bounding off the billow waves of land from uttermost leagues , they shook their kindlyheads in defiance as they protected tho little cottage below . In summer the birds built their nests and sang their songs to the dwellers beneath , and in winter the children would look through the frozen panes , and see the stars faithfully shining through the waving black arms of these world old trees . Wayne was five summers tall , fiery dark and fearless , full of strange talk and stranger notions . He had a deadly instrument which he called a gun , made , however , from a shingle and painted red . With this he was continually bringing in the large...

BEARDS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
BEARDS . Among the Romans it was considered a mark oi disgrace to have the beard cut from the face . Many of the old patricians took their names from the color of the beard . The most esteemed color in the time of Cicero was the red beard . The longest beards are usually black or brown ; the former color indicating energy , the latter mildness of disposition . A short , stiff , reddish beard denotes quick temper and irasciblity . A thin beard denotes lack of physical stamina . A thick , short , black beard indicates business ability and decision of character . A straggling , thin beard quite often accompanies genius . Many of our poets are nearly beardless . Webster s beard was like porcupine quills . Swinburne , the poet , has a weak , boyish beard , that is anything but an ornament . Tennyson wears none . Students seldom have full , heavy beards . Notable exceptions are James Russell Lowell , Longfellow and Bryant . During colonial days few wore beards except priests and backwoods...
REMEMBRANCE , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
REMEMBRANCE , Wl y do wo vex the moment s joy With presages of future pain—Why mingle still that base alloy With all the golden hours we gain ? Is it because there lingers yet In heart of man remembrance drear , An Eden lost he oant forget , Although another blooms more dear ? ~ Sel . MR . FRANKLINS LESSON . A . E . H . Can you spare me some money , Edward ? asked Mrs . Franklin , with the deprecating air of one who expects to be refused the desired favor . Money ! Money ! Always money ; growled the husband . One would think I were made of money . What in tho world do you want of it ? It was only week before last that I gave you twenty dollars . Which was the first you had given me for nearly three months , Edward , gently reminded his wife , and I had to pay for my fall sack and bonnet out of it . Now I need a winter dress , and Minnie must have new stockings and shoes , and some other things . I dont see what you want of another dress—you had one last winter;—and as for that child...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
If you cannot afford a plush dressingcase for the combs and brushes , get a cigar box and after removing all the paper from it , varnish all over nicely , and after marking out scallops or points on the lid ( which should slope gradually from the point where it is joined to the box to tlie top , ending in a single scallop or point ) , cut out with a sharp jackknife , varnish the raw edges and &gt; ack under the mirror , or beside the bureau . It is both usefuTand ornamental if made carefully .
FRETTING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
FRETTING . Few of us are satisfied with our friends ; and one fruitful source of unhappiness is an often unconscious desire that seems to possess us to make them over to our own liking . This is frequently an ill-defined feeling that we fail to recognize at once in all its absurdity ; but a little self-examination will show us how we vex and worry ourselves into a fever of dissatisfaction over a failure on a friends part to conform to all our ideas of right and propriety . Or possibly the defect in his character is so slight as to show itself in nothing more than a lack of congeniality of taste ; yet we grieve over it as a sorry fault , and lament the unloveliness of human character until we grow morbid . As there is no remedy for this evil , why not devote our best energies to cultivate magnanimity ? Let friends , acquaint , ances and fellow creatures in general be as they will , let us see to it that we devote ourselves to admiring that which is lovely in their characters instead ...
THE SCRAP . BASKET . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
THE SCRAP . BASKET . Mottoes made of autumn leaves and pressed flowers are very pretty and effective ornaments for a dining room , when arranged over the mantel . Tho following may be pleasing : To have what you like , like what you have . Waste not , want not . The counsels that are given in wine , will do no good to thee or thine . Enough is as good as a feast . A decided improvement on the oldfashioned bibs for children is made of a towel . Purchase the desired length towel to cut two bibs ; cut it in half , and hollow out at the top . Bind the neck with white tape , and cat-stitch with color . Be careful not to get the towel too wide , or the bib will always be over the hands . Many young housekeepers who have never had any experience in doing up shirts find it very difficult to get a good polish on them . Now , if you will melt with a gentle heat , one ounce of white wax and two ounces of spermaceti together , then prepare in the usual way . a sufficient quantity of starch for ...
WOMAN'S SCEPTER . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
WOMANS SCEPTER . There is something extremely pleasant , at least very sweet , soft , and winning , in the peculiarity of needle-work , distinguishing women from men . Men are incapable of any such by-play aside from the main business of life ; but women , be of what earthly rank they may , however gifted with intellect or genius , or endowed with beauty , have always some little handiwork ready to fill the CATCH-ALL . Materials , drab Holland , cretonne flowers , fancy braid and worsteds to match th , flowers in color . The shape and size ot this useful article is olainly shown In tne accompanying illustration . A large tassel of worsted iinlshes the bottom . tiny gap of every vacant moment . A needle is familiar to the fingers of them all . A queen plies it on occasions ; the woman poet can use it as adroitly as her pen ; the woman s eye , that has discovered a new star , turns from its glory to send the polished little instrument gleaming along the hem of her kerchief , or to dar...
EXAMPLE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
EXAMPLE . Uncultivated people are pretty apt to generate family feuds , and keep them up for their neighbors to gossip about ; but it is uncultivated parentage that produces such a sad result . If the mother and father are cultivated and refined , the child will grow up so too , because he patterns after them . This is a very unwelcome doctrine to very many , especially so to those whose children have not developed as they should . But it is a truth which acknowledged , will enable such parents to have more kindly feelings and more forgiving hearts toward the erring ones . It is a truth which all young parents should thoughtfully and prayerfully digest . The little child will be your imitator . Do you speak the Anglo-Saxon ? He will soon learn to lisp mamma . Do you smile , and have a pleasant , cheerful countenance ? He will , too , and vice versa . Do you scold him and the other children on every trifling occasion ? Ho will think it manly to frown and scold and storm when little t...
