SIGH-PRICED HUMANITY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
SIGH-PRICED HUMANITY . She was ready for bed and lap onmy arm . In her Utile frilled cap so fine . With Iter golden hair falling out at the edge . Like a iircle of noon sunshine . And I hummed the old tune of Banberrv Cross , * And Three men who put out to sea , When she sleepily said , as she closed her blue eyes , JPapa , fot would you take for met And I answered , A dollar , dear Utile heart , And she slept , fiOby-weary with play , Rut I held her warm in my love-strong arms , And rocked her , and rocked away . O , the dollar meant all the world to me . The land and the sea and sky , The lowest depth of the lowest place . The highest of all that s high . The cities with streets and palaces , Their pictures and stores of art , I would not take for one low , soft throb Of my tittle one s loving heart . Nor all the gold that was ever found In the busy , wealth-finding past Would Itake for one smile ofmy darlingsface . Did I know it must be tlie last . So I rocked my baby and rocked ...

Well Warmed Crockery . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Well Warmed Crockery . During Arctic weather , plates and cups should be placed upon the table with an acquired temperature many degrees above frigid , or we must eat unpalatable gravies and sauces and drink our coffee and tea half cold . If crockery is put in the oven to warm , it is apt to crack or become discolored . The best method is to dip plates and enps ln boiling hot water , let them remain for a few moments , dry quickly , pile and set on the table ready for immediate use .
Healthy Houses . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Healthy Houses . It is important for the household s health that the cellar should be rather light and wall ventilated .

The best way to keep a house dry and healthy ls to nsoji , living in aU the rooms , either every day or by turns . A spare- room is usually a damp , ill ventilated room , and in empty house deteriorates much faster than one whioh is occupied . -
Keep Out the Cold . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Keep Out the Cold . The lone winters evening when the frost has wrought a silence is upon us , and the incoming draughts from window and door make us shiver and draw nearer the cheery hearthstone . Much fuel might be saved if our houses were properly made and finished . Oraoks in floors and around the mould board , or other parts of a room , may be neatly and permanently filled by thoroughly soaking newspapers in paste made of one pound of flour , three quarts of water , and a tablespoonful of alum , thoroughly boiled and mixed . The mixture will be about as thick as putty , and may be forced into the oracks with a case-knife . It will harden like papier-mache .
Preventive of Cold Feet . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Preventive of Cold Feet . An equal circulation that gives warmth to the extremities is a great promoter of the very good health that few are fortunate enough to possess . Many artificial methods of keeping the feet warm throughout the day have been recommended . The following has at least the virtue of simplicity and can be easily tested . Let a layer of curled hair be basted to a piece of cloth and slipped in the stocking ; the hair , touching the soles of the feet , will titillate , the skin and draw the blood thither . The hair conducts the moisture from the feet to the woolen cloth and thus keeps them dry . These hair soles should be placed before the fire at night so as to be thoroughly dried by the morning .
A Darning Bag . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
A Darning Bag . Mend when thou canst . There is certainly nothing very attractive about a pile of old stockings awaiting repairs , and when one sits down to darn as pleasant accessories as may be are desirable . A variety of mending bags both useful and ornamental have a place among the household necessities , and an exchange suggests a style that is really pretty and of genuine practical utility . The bag is orochetted of white or colored cotton in loose meshes . Through the openings the position of the various balls are clearly defined and instead of all having to be emptied out to discover one we can see it at a glance , puU the thread through , and without further disorder are ready for work .
Chilblains . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Chilblains . Children and elderly persons are most liable to suffer with this decidedly unpleasant annoyance , caused commonly by holding feet or hands to the fire , after exposure to cold , The sudden change of temperature partially destroys the vitality and prevents the proper flow of blood through the parts . The best preventives are woolen socks and stockings , water-proof shoes , exercise and friction . Many remedies are offered more or less efficacious . Among the cures for chilblains are the following reoipes : 1 . Sulphate of copper , 1 oz . ; rosemary water , 1 pint . Dissolve . Apply as a wash . 2 . Sal ammoniac , 1 oz . ; vinegar , * a pint . The affected part is well wetted night and morning , and when dry is touched with a little simple ointment of any kind , cold cream or pomatum .

Clothing of Infante . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Clothing of Infante . An English lady is leoturing in London on the clothing of infants . She says : The clothes ought to be made ( 1 ) to cover every part of the body alike ; ( 2 ) to rest upon the collar-bones , so that the arms may be quite free ; ( 3 ) they should be made so that they can be put on without turning the baby over ; ( 4 ) they should be short and light , so that it can move its legs quite freely . Mr . Day , the assistant surgeon to the Royal Hospital for Women and Children , has designed a suit of infant s clothes that appear to fulfill these requirements . First a flne flannel vest reaching to about four inches below the feet , which should be protected by woolen socks , wrapped around the infant and tied in front with tapes ; next , a cfttton shirt with sleeves nearly to the wrists , to reach four inches below the vest ; and lastly , a robe made in the same way , that is , to fasten down the front . The robe and shirt may be fastened with smaU buttons , as the v...
A Leaf Album .. [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
A Leaf Album .. A leaf album is among the newest fancies . To make one only requires the exercise of a little care and patience . First get a slab of plato glass and spread upon it a daub of printer s ink ; then get a small roller such as printers use , and roll it over the ink tiU the glass is equally covered ; then lay the leaf—clean and freshly gathered—on the inked glass , and carefully draw the roller over it . Next lift the leaf by the stalk—using considerable tenderness because of the fragility of the subject—and place it between a folded sheet of paper , press and rub gently all over it , being careful not to let it alter its position . Then take the leaf out , and you should have a beautifully clean impression of both the front and back . The same effect might be got , to a certain extent , with lampblack , oil color or anything of that kind , but when it is done with printing ink it is not only far more clear and distinct but permanent . A bit of common plate glasB * , or ...
. Winter Gardening . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
. Winter Gardening . At tbis season of the year we doubly value each bud , blossom and leaf of our house plants , and various are the devicea with which we wreathe pioture frames , brackets and windows with living green . One friend has luxuriant vines from a sweet potato placed in a small jar of water . Others show lovely grass balls made by sowing seed . in a moist sponge ; and winter hyacinths , flowers of exquisite perfume , have been grown by the following ingenious device , which we clip from an exchange : The bulbs are bedded in deep incisions made in large sponges , which are closed snugly over and around the bulbs and then placed in appropriately shaped vases . Water moderately warmed , say to 65 ° or 70 ° , is then poured into the vase until it reaches about half the height of the sponge . The bulbs begin to sprout in two or three days , and in about Bix weeks the plants are as many inches high , and continue to thrive until the flowers come out , of unusually large size a...
Preventing the Spread of Scarlet Fever . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
Preventing the Spread of Scarlet Fever . Many homes have been devastated by thiB terrible infection , and we trust the following pertinent suggestions from the Herald of Health may prove efficacious : When this disease occurs in a family , it is a question of the greatest importance that its spead to other members be prevented . It is not always possible to send children away , nor is it always Bate , as they may be infected and spread the disease elsewhere . The best method of preventing the spread of the disease to other members of the family is by means of disinfection ; and by disinfection is not meant the use of special substances that destroy germs , but cleanliness . In the first place , keep the room in which the sick child ls confined thoroughly ventilated ; remove all superfluous furniture and carpets ; destroy all rags and bits of paper used in washing the sick ; put all lineup and toweling used In the room into boiling water and boil them thoroughly till every germ is ki...
A NEW YEAE'S PICTUEE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
A NEW YEAES PICTUEE . BY M . A . P . S . It was the last night of December . Throngs of people hurried to and fro along the frosty pavements , and the great shop windows , all ablaze with gas-light , cast such a radiance upon the orowded thoroughfare that the very stars seemed almost to grow dim , as they peered down between the tall , briok walls of the oity . It was quite worth one s while to brave the keen air of the street-corner for a glance into the faces of the passers-by—some brave , hopeful , smiling , as if their eyes had caught already the welcoming light of the warm homes to which they were hastening ; others , so worn and sad that you felt sure as you looked that no New Tear could ever bring back to them the treasures of love and hope which many an Old Tear had taken . Ail this was out-of-doors , but here in Dr . Trevor s cozy study there was no suggestion of wintry weather , except in the bright fire that glowed and leaped in the grate , casting its frolicsome lights a...

THET DIDNT THINK . BY PHCEBE CAXT . Once a trap was baited With a pteee of cheese ; It tickled so a little Mouse It almost made him sneeze ; An old rat said , There s danger .

A Dog Story . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885
A Dog Story . One day a fine Newfoundland dog and a mastiff had a quarrel over a bone , or some other trifling matter . They were fighting on a bridge , and being blind with rage , as is often the case , the first thing they knew , over they went , into the water . The banks were so high that they were forced to swim some distance before they came to a landing-place . It was very easy for the Newfoundland dog ; he was as much at home in the water as a seal . But not so with poor Bruce He struggled and tried his best to swim , but made little headway . Old Bravo , the Newfoundland , had reached the land and turned to look at his old enemy . He saw plainly that his strength was fast tailing , and that he was likely to drown . So what should he do but plunge in , seize him gently by the collar , and , keeping his nose above water , tow him safely into port . It was curious to see the dogs look at each other as soon as they shook their wet coats . I Their glance said plainly aB wOTds , ...
