Oklahoma Fruits [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899
Oklahoma Fruits NOTES BY THE WAT—ill . O RCHARDS . —I was not in the best fruit section and s 6 v I ; will not say that therearereally no firstclass apple orchards , for I have no doubt there are , but I did not see any .,. I saw some - Missouri , pippins : and . ; Arkansas black that were quite fair and had borne well and doubtless 1 there aire a few other varieties • that have done well . But it is a fact that the first five ; to ten years has shown that our climate and soil are . not specially adapted to apple trees 1 growth . But because of the extra , care necessary , which few will give , and the limited area well adapted , local demand will always be good and so fair chance of profit . * * * P EACHES succeed everywhere , though . extra work ¦ is required in some places . Almost any variety , seedling or budded , ripening before Sept . 1 or after Oct . 15 can be recommended . -I have seen growths of last fall set buds ranging from six to ten feet . v . .

m » Hints for the Housemother and Eldest Daughter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899
m » Hints for the Housemother and Eldest Daughter By Clara Sensibaugh . Everts . E VERY woman looks better with a bit of white about her throat , whether it be the fashion or not , but lately that worthy dame sanctions it . The busy housemother and elder daughter often think themselves too busy to- give any attention to these things for home-wear ; but never should we allow ourselves to ever become to busy to make ourselves attractive to the home folks—those our hearts hold dearest . A yardand a quarter of India linen or fine white lawn costing fifteen or twenty eentB a yard will make four or six broad ties . The sides should have a very narrow hem , either hand or machine made , and the ends may be finished with an inch wide hem—hemstitched if one has time ; if not machine stitched . With care one of these might be worn for a week without washing , and may be put on when one dresses in the morning without taking a minute s extra time .

Sleep for the Babies [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899
Sleep for the Babies Want of rest and sleepleads to . insanity in the adult , who requires only seven or eight : hours of : the ^ twenty-four for recuperation , while the infant needs at least from sixteen to twenty hours of sleep . If healthy and free from pain , clean , dry and comfortable , and let alone , the child will always take thiR needed rest ; but if it is cramped with colic , pricked with pints , irritated with rough flannels next its sensitive skin ,, or allowed to lie in wet and soiled-napkins till it is chafed and sore , it can hot rest itself , nor let other s rest . —Kate Lindsay , M .

Scientific Home Lessons in Painting . and Drawing ( Copyrighted . 1898 , by Merlbah E . Williams Walker . All rights reserved . ) LESSON VI . —AERIAL PERSPECTIVE . IN the study of nature , Lesson 1 „ Rule IV ., it was discovered that objects appear smaller as they recede from the eye , and also that they become more and more obscure . • YOU WILL , WILL YOU ? The apparent change in size belongs to ,, and has been explained 3 n r Linear Perspective , : The increasing obscurity is due to a . great , extent to the atmosphere through which one looks to see the objects . The increasing obscurity is therefore a question , of aerial perspective . Thi 3 may be noticed ,, particularly when mists or fogs burden the atmosphere . On the other hand mountain travelers assert that on the high levelswhere the atmosphere is not so dense as inthe valleys objects may be distinctly seen , at a very great distance . Hence , Rule XIII . In nature the atmosphere obscures receding objects in direct proporti...

A Club for Every-Da . y Women T HE woman s club has become so &gt; closely connected with-the-spirit of our times , that the woman who i » debarred from its privileges feels that she is left far behind her sisters in the cities who can identify themselves with as many clubs as they like . These isolated women , will , therefore , be glad to know that a woman s club has been organized for their special , benefit , by a woman whose -earlier years were spent on a farm , and who * knows by actual experience how much the farmer s wife heeds an interest outside thedaily routine of . farm life .

Helpful Expedient By Mary B . Fowler . WE busy housekeepers all appreciate expedients . Those delightful little : devices that come to the rescue when we are so hurried or worried we hardly know which way to turn . Sometimes , they bring unexpected developments as did one of mine not long ago . I could not get my boys new pants finished for the first day of school sol hurriedly patched an oldpair and told him to wear those a few days . It was his first term and among the many things he told me about school-life wasthis : Mamma , when . I was up to the blackboard Pete whispered , Say ! the patches on your pants spell D-0 do . I whispered back Yes , mamma made em that way to cover up the holes , and Pete says , You re a brick fer a . little kid . Another was a decided success . I cooked a squash ( and I always cook squash just fuj . 1 do potatoes ) , but this one proved watery , instead of dry and mealy , because it was not ripe . The whole family had been coaxing for pumpkin pies , a...

Nut-Shortened Sticks [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899
Nut-Shortened Sticks A PERFECTLY sound , healthy stomach will digest almost anything that a man is willing to eat . If abused by ha vine heapedupon it indigestible stuff , t will enter its protest after awhile ; sometimes this protest does not come till the second generation . We are suffering for the carelessness . in this respect of our parents . It has iong been known . by persons who have made a : study of the laws of hygiene that the pies . shortened with lard are hard to digest . Weak stomachs rebel against them . In fact , it ia generally believed that dyspepsia , in many cases , is traceable to this old practice of using lard for shortening . . Among many other wholesome inventions of the Battle Creek Sanitarium Health Food Company is one by which nuts are used-for shortening . The nuta themselves-are-grated and . mixed with the dough ; : and . seem to-answer the usual purpose ; of shortening ; _ . at the same time , the product When it ; comes from the oven is • more-palata...
