'beautifying the Front Yard . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
beautifying the Front Yard . By Milton O . ffeUon . What lies between your front door and the road ? If your house lias not been built plumb up to the highway—and most farm houses are not—Ill tell you what lies between your front door and the road . An opportunity ! A splendid opportunity . And speaking at large , it JS a womans opportunity . The front yard is the reception room of the home . It is the logical place for lawn , shrubs and flowers . Any farm house can have these and any farmer s wife who sets her head and her heart on having them and sets her . hands at work to get and keep them can have them in plenty . You need a tidy , pretty front yard to brighten your own outlook ; your neighbors need-it as an example and an inspiration to do the same at their house ; and the passerby will bless you for the beauty you handed out to him . The people of your county will come to speak of your farm as—say—that place on the Ridge road where they have such a pretty lawn and flower gard...

It was but a short time after Gen , Washingtons war council at White Horse Inn , that one night , long after the inmates of the inn had retired , Sally Campbell suddenly sat up in bed , listening . She was positive there had been a strange , queer noise downstairs . But though she continued to listen with strained ears , not a sound more could she detect . An odd , grating noise . it had been and a vague fear took quick possession of Sally s soul . What if the British had discovered the presence of Captain Coverly in the tavern tonight ? Ever since her brother Travis had come home at candle-light and reported that the enemys scout , Silver Fox , was in the neighborhood , she had felt a dread foreboding that something was going to happen . Late in the evening the Captain had arrived , bound north on a dangerous mission to Gen . ...

Qurafomefolub } gy G / yrsV : pmepnens OUR HOME CLUB AND NEIGHBORHOOD CLUBS . This is indeed a full Home Club meeting , with interesting communications from many members , all of which are most welcome . Hetty Hicks gives the young people of marriageable age a good talk , and we hop young Farmer s Wifes question will bring helpful suggestions . Personally , the editor has known of but one really successful neighborhood club among farmers wives , though she has known of the organization of several societies , all of which died from what seemed strangulation with red tape—too much formality and observance of parliamentary rules , and expecting the too frequent appearance of members on the program .- This successful neighborhood club had no rules whatever , and came to be finally dubbed The Visitors . The first meet ing was by imitation of individuals to visit on a certain afternoon a progressive farmer s wife who saw and felt the need of greater sociability in the neighborhood , and w...

BEAUTIFYING THE FRONT YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
BEAUTIFYING THE FRONT YARD ( Continued from page 244 . ) Dont try too much in the garden the first year , but try a few things hard . Plant a clump or two of tiger lilies . Get the bulbs this spring and plant them right , and you will get good flowers this summer and for many years thereafter . They pay richly . We have a clump six years old that stand over six feet high and last year gave about 250 fine lilies . Last spring we planted two dozen bulbs and all of them gave fine lilies later in the season . They increase slowly and get better for years . You can take the little bulblets that grow on the stalks and plant them , and if you wait a few years you will have tiger lilies by the thousands . Get some perennial phlox started this year . This flower has been so improved since your mother planted it that you wouldnt know it for the same thing . We have eighteen varieties in our gar den , and Sue is making new ones from seed every year . They last for years and their color effect ...

I am sorry to trouble you , but you must see that with my hands thus bound it is quite impossible for me to do it for myself . The Frenchman sprang to the fireplace and began to poke the embers into a blaze . Ah , Mam selle , it ees not trouble—eet gif me much plaisir . Mam elle she do me much honeur . He paused in his work of stirring the fire and cast an eye over his shoulder at the soldier waiting impatiently in the hall doorway . Monsieur . Caporal , you may to go ; I will soon follow . Ze cellaire eet ees first to search . The fellow scowled , but went off down the hall to the kitchen . After he had departed the scout piled the huge brass andirons high with wood and regarded the maiden approvingly as she moved nearer the warming blaze which began to roar up the great chimney .

NATURE S TUDY [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
NATURE S TUDY This is of all seasons in the year the best to begin nature study with the children . .. When they hear the first pipings of the frogs in the marshes , bring in the first pussy willows , and announce with gleeful shouts the arrival of the first robin , then little minds are ready and eager for the help and instruction necessaiy to lead them to closely observe the awakening of nature into life . Mothers and teachers will find their own nature s deepened and broadened , and their capacity for finding pleasure and beauty in the things about them enlarged as they lead the children on over familiar yet unexplored fields , and teach them the higher enjoyments of country life by arousing their sense and appreciation of nature s wonders and beauties .
TO HOUSEKEEPERS AND MOTHERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
TO HOUSEKEEPERS AND MOTHERS . Happy is the woman or the individual who possesses the faculty of interesting herself in and enjoying her daily tasks . There is real joy in work if wc know how to find it . There is a wholesome sense of satisfaction in a duty well performed at every completion of even the too many , greatly dreaded three times a day task of dishwashing . Performed in a cheerful , willing spirit , quickly and well , as one of the many little tilings that fit into the daily plan for making the home comfortable and happy , it ceases to be dreaded . There are many tastes and requirements of daily living that may be made continual bug-bears , if one chooses , that should instead be accepted as simple duties that may be made to contribute something of blessedness to our lives if we will but let them . If there are children to be taught and to help , the half hour or more required for the dishwashing may be made one of real pleasure and soul upl ift to b oth the mother and ch...

CHILD LABOR LEGISLATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
CHILD LABOR LEGISLATION . It is long years since the worlds large hearted philanthropists , Christian workers in the slums of great cities , and labor union leaders , first directed the attention of the public to the empl oym e nt of littl e children in sweat shops and factories and at piece-work at home , and their harrowing descriptions of the conditions amidst which these little white slaves labor have in tliis later generation attracted so much attention as to cause the leading periodicals of this country to point to the need of leg i s latio n i n the matter . But great as is its need the enactment of any legislation upon the subject should receive the most careful consideration lest harm instead of good result . To in s i s t mere ly upon the children s school attendance and make employ in g th e m a criminal offense will only pauperize the m , as has been before suggested in these columns . To free them and turn them upon the streets out of school hours and during vacations w...
FARM HANDS AND FARM PROFITS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
FARM HANDS AND FARM PROFITS . One cause of the scarcity of farm hands is dud to the short seasontheir services are required . Many fa r mer s hire help onl y from the opening of spring until after the harvesting and threshing is done , or if they keep a man at all during the winter they feel that the work required will permit them to pay but small wages . The men who are willing to perform farm labor are of two classes , industrious , hardworking farm boys , who know no other moans of earning a living , but who want work the year round , and the shiftless cousin to the hobo who cares to work only enough to buy clothing to cover him and furnish him with tobacco while he lives around on his family friends the balance of the year , or perhaps in the cheap lodging houses in the cities . The former soon finds more remunerative all-the-year-round employment , or starts farming for himself , and the latter the farmer doesn t want at any price . In order to secure reliable , competent help ...
SPRING WORK . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 April 1907
SPRING WORK . It i s e arl y yet for housecleamng—leave that for really settled weather , and then take only a room or two at a time , so th a t an unexpected cold rain may not find the house all torn up so that comfort can be found nowhere , _ ¦ and the \ york cannot go on for the necessity of sunning and airing bedding and clothing , beating carpets , rugs , etc ., which can he done only out of doors . The spring work in mind for the women folks is that of getting out of doors on bright days with the children to clean up the yard , both front and back , and plan and prepare the flower beds . Dont try to do too much of this unaccustomed work in one day , but go out for an hour every afternoon and the work will seem like play to the children and the out of door air and exercise will be good for the mother . Nothing contributes more to the attractiveness of the farm home than cleanliness about the dooryard and garden , and while the farmer is tto busy getting the seed into the ground...
