MixedPickles . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

MixedPickles . I wanted to make some mixed pickles . But I could not find a recipe that did not call for a number of things which I did not have . So following the old , advice , Find a . way or make one , I decided to mnke them to suit my own fancy . My success was even greater than I expected , and my John ( though that isnt his name ) , thinks they are Al , so I am satisfied with the result . Take four medium-sized cabbage heads , chop fine and throw into a large jar ; a sixgallon is about right . The object in this is to get a jar you can mix tho ingredients in without getting them all over the floor . I went into the garden to see what I could find that would work up into pickles . I galkered together two quarts of green tomatoes , one -horseradish root , five medium green cucumbers , five mango peppers , a quart of onions and two quarts of green Lima beans ( in pods ) . Seme of these were so tender I used them pods and all ; the others I took beans only . These ingredients wer...

Uses of Fruit . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

Uses of Fruit . - I have eaten apples all my life , but never learned how to make the best use of them till last winter , writes a correspondent to American Gardening . Now we eat apples half an hour before breakfast and dinner instead of afterward . The action of the acid is then , admirable in aiding digestion , while if eaten after meais the apple is likely to prove a burden . We follow the same line in using grapes , pears , cherries and berries . If disturbed by a-headache or dyspepsia iri summer , I climb a Cherry tree and eat all ! I can reach and relish . In order to have cherries all summer , I cover n dozen trees with mosquito-netting to keep off the birds Currants and gooseberries I find very wholesome eaten raw from the bushes before going to the dining table . Nature has propared a large amount of food already cooked , exactly fitted for all demands of Ihe human system . I am by no means a vejroierian or a fruitarian , but I am convinced thnt we have not yet measured th...

FROM FOOT TO KNEE Ohio Woman Suffered Great Agony From a Terrible Sore—Her Story of the Case , and Her Cure . For many years I was afflicted with a milk leg , and a few years ago it broke out in a sore and spread from my foot to my knee . I suffered great agony . It would burn and itch all the time and discharge a great deal . My health was good with the exception of this sore . I tried a great many kinds of salve , but some would irritate the sore so that I could hardly stand the pain . I could not go near the fire without suffering intensely . Some one sent me papers containing testimonials of cures bv Hood s Sarsaparilla , and I told my husband I would like to try this medicine . He got me a bottle and I found it helped me . I kept on taking it until my limb was completely healed . I cannot praise Hood s Sarsaparilla enough for the great benefit it has been to me . It cleanses the blood of all impurities and leaves it rich and pure . MRS . ANNA E . EAKBisr , Whittlesey , Ohio . Y...

M ISS EDITH , the teacher , sitting at her desk in tbe quiet of the afternoon , was looking sorrowfully over the empty benches , and feeling even more sorrowful than she looked . The sound of happy , voices came to her through the open window 7 , as the children , homeward bound , stopped in the yard for a final game of tag . How can they be so happy , thought Miss Edith , when , they are so very naughty ? Not five minutes since , Farmer Gray , stamping into the schoolroom , had said in an-angry voice : You must keep your young rascals off my place , or I will thrash every one of them . Wliat have they been doing ? No end of mischief , for they stone the pigeons , and I caught them— But Miss Edith was too much ashamed to hear any more , and said quietly : They shall never trouble you again . And Farmer Gray had gone away muttering : Just let me catch them at it ! At nine o clock the next morning Miss Edith bad a splendid plan to propose ....

For instance ; can you tell off-hand what country in South America a line drawn straight from Chicago would go through ? Think is . over . carefully , answer it and then look at your geography . Heres another . Supposing yon were to travel due east from Chicago until you reached Europe , would you be north or south of the city of Rome ? How much ?

What is the reason for this remarkable difference in climate ? * Several other puzzling questions , in geography , are ., printed , t . below .

THE NATIONAL RURAL . he did so , drew towards him a poor frog , whose leg had been fastened to the stake in this way . Ned cut the twine with his knife , but could not manage to untie the frog s leg without hurting it , so he said gently to froggie : It is better to go home with a string on your leg than not to go home at all .

One Way to Get Money . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

One Way to Get Money . The Hindus have an idea that any one wilfully inflicting pain upon himself must be a very holy man , and that , moreover , any severe penances which he undergoes will infallibly give ¦ him great power with the gods . Hehce ? it-is that in India thousands flock around these fakirs ,, imploring the holy men to mediate with the gods for them and secure either for themselves or for their friends great blessings or terrible curses , as the case may be . The accompanying illustration shows one of these Hindus undergoing self-torture on a spiked board . Hundreds of spikes have been driven into a board , making a fearfully painful seat on which the holy man rests as . though on a bed of down . He sits in a public place . and expects homage in the way of , coin from every passer-by , and the pile of • coin seen on the hoard in front of him shows that he does not suffer for nothing .
