Keep the Young Stock Growing [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
Keep the Young Stock Growing By E . B . Towle . THB farmer who is raising young stock for supplying the dairy with cows will find it profitable to keep the animals in a thrifty growing condition through the winter . It will be found poor policy to have them remain at a v standstill through the cold 1 weather , coming but in poor condition in spring . Where this-prac-tice is followed it will require considerable time after being . turned to grass to get fairly started again in thrift and growth . Tho calves—those coming one year old but not being fed with milk—should he carefully looked after the first winter . , if they ; already have a good Rtart , this should be zealously maintained through the first winter with proper feed and care . A little grain with early cut hay will help wonderfully . They should have a good bed and be kept dry and warm . II confined in any way they should quite often have a little exercise . If turned out tt &gt; water that will answer . Look out f...
The Future Herd [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
The Future Herd By M . E . King . W HILE I do not believe that what is termed the general purpose cow can successfully compete with the . exclusively dairy breeds , yet it must be admitted that there are many good - cows to be found among the beef breeds and on almost every farm one can find one or more cows that are above the average in dairy work . It is from these cows that the future dairy should come on the average farm . Of course , where dairying is to be made a specialty , one should begin with some special dairy breed , either by purchase-or breeding from dairy bulls and grading up . But the average farmer who keeps from two to half a dozen cows from which to raise calves and make butter for home use , selling the surplus , does not want the dairy breeds , because they are only profitable where one makes dairying a specialty . Let farmers find out which are their best cows ,-then , breed them to a bull whose mother was one of these : best cows as well as the grandmother , i...
Beverly's Notes [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
Beverlys Notes By Frank Monroe Beverly . IT is-winter now , and but little farm _ work-can be done at this season ; but every farmer should begin to plan for next years operations on the farm / , This is the time for farmers io read . Have you secured a supply of fresh literature with which to while awaythe . long winter evenings ? Doubtless ; - .-you . have something ennobling and elevating ( the Bible , for instance ) to read ; but then you need some up-to-date matter / . When you go to bridle your horse during the frozen weather , always see that the bits are made warm before putting them in his mouth . Frozen bits would be disagreeable in horses mouth . • Some discretion should be exercised in feeding farm animals . The best results are not controlled altogether by-the amount of provender fed ; but to a great extent by the manner . There is such a thing as slovenliness in feeding , as well as in anything else . -There is a saying that ! shelter is half-feed for stock , and you m...
Effective Cough Remedies [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
Effective Cough Remedies By Clara S . Everts . A MOST excellent cough medicine is made n by putting a heaping tablespoonful of flaxseed in a pint and a half of cold water . ¦ Heat slowly and boil for fifteen minutes . Strain ; add the juice of one large or . two small lemons and sweeten to taste . A tablespoonful every hour or -so will soon relieve even a . severe cough . If the lungs are sore and the breathing difficult , it is well to apply the following ointment : Into a tablespoonful of fresh , soft lard work a teaspoonful of turpentine . Spread on a cloth , sprinkle it with salt and apply directly to the lungs , covering with another cloth to protect the clothing . This acts as quickly , and is fully as effective as any of the highpriced ointments sold in the drug store for such purposes . Another good ointment : Soften a quantity of fresh lard and add an equal amount of spirits of camphor . Stir constantly , cooling the lard quickly so that as it hardens the camphor will be th...

m * A Talk with Parents [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
m * A Talk with Parents By Mrs . F . W . Vanderhoef . THE holidays are a tiling of the past , and the children are once more pay *¦ ing all their attention to school , with an occasional Saturday for skating or coasting . T think every parent should visit the school and study with the children a little while every night . That is , hear them recite the lessons learned at home , and talk over all they have done throush the day . No ; I did not intend to say the mother should do all this . I think the father should bear his share of the responsibilities and take just as much interesl in their sports or studies as the mother . But I do know that usually these duties devolve upon the mother . These duties are with me a labor of-love and usually are the pleasantest hours of the whole day . Now , another thing . I know that the world- over people are almost criminally careless about the , company their children have . I think if they cannot have good company , better not have any at all ....
"What Can I Do Now , Mamma ? " [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
What Can I Do Now , Mamma ? THIS is the question which every mother of little children will hear to-day and every day until the grass grows green again . No man , woman or child , who is good for anything , enjoys being out of employment . Even these short winter days will seem long to little children who have nothing to do . • Who can blame them if they get into mischief ? A pair of round-pointed scissors and abundle of picture papers will amuse little children , for hours at a . time . . To be sure , they will . make a muss , but it will be clean dirt and can be confined to one corner of the room . Give the little ones a neat box for their pictures . and require them to pick up the scrapswhen they are through . At another time give them a cup of paste and arm each child , with a toothpick and let them paste their best pictures on pasteboard or into scrap-books made of common manila wrapping paper , the leaves stitched together on the sewinsr machine . Cut bright-coloredpaper into ...
The Sin of Teasing [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
The Sin of Teasing R EAD what De Witt Talmage .. says in one of his sermons to sisters on how to treat a brother :. Dont snub him . Dont deprecate his ability . . Dont . talk discouragingly aboutkis future . - ¦ Dont tease him . Brothers and sisters do not consider it any harm to tease . That spirit abroad in a family is one of the meanest and most devilish . There is a teasing that is pleasurable and is only another form of , innocent raillery ; but that which provokes and irritates and makes the . eye flash with anger is to be reprehended . It would be less blameworthy to take a bunch of thorns and draw them across your sister s cheek ,- or take a knife and draw its sharp edge across your brothers hand till the blood spurts , for that would damage only the body , but teasing is the thorn and the knife scratching and lacerating the disposition of the soul . It ds the curse of innumerable households that the brothers tease the sisters , and the sisters the brothers . Sometimes it is...

_^ w w Odds and Ends [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
_^ w w Odds and Ends YEAST—I have found out that it is all foolishness to waste time and patience making home-made yeast . Although there is only one kind that is a thing to depend on , and that is called yeast cream . It never fails , used according to directions , but sometimes , when the sponge is set to rise . in the evening , and gets too cold , the bread-making is a slow process , on account of slowness . in the rising . Lately I-have taken a yeast cake in the morning and put it in a half cupful of warm water . After it has dissolved and looks foamy on top , I stir in a spoonful of flour and set it by until I wish to set the sponge at night . There will be no delay this time . It seems to have double strength , and when mixed into dough in the morning rises quickly . I mold my bread twice before putting into the pans , and they raise up like balls in a short time . In this age of knitting machines and , therefore , cheap stockings and socks , one scarcely knows to what use ^ t...
