CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY . The feeling is growing from year to year that the dangerous pastime of setting off fireworks is not the most appropriate way of observing the anniversary of the birth of a great , prosperous , peaceloving nation . As the manufacturers ingenuity has devised more noisy and dangerous explosives , as well as more beautiful spectacular displays , so has the aftermath of suffering and death increased . Hundreds of the most promising youth of our land , with who can tell what careers of usefulness and honor before them , are yearly either crippled for life or killed . Is such a celebration , the firing of explosives and setting off fireworks , the most enjoyable that can be planned ? Instead of imitating the roar and fire and smoke of battle , and more or less of its dangers , would It not be more appropriate for this great nation to commemorate the birth of its history as a victorious army , jubilant , marching hosts with banners flying , singing songs of pe...

FORETHOUGHT AND FOREBODING . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

FORETHOUGHT AND FOREBODING . While It Is necessary at the present ptage of progress of the human race to exercise some measure of forethought for future maintenance and comfort , there is much that is a waste of time and vital energy for which there is no better descriptive word or phrase than the wellworn and trite borrowing trouble . This Is simply a habit of thought which may be overcome if we will but train the mind to dwell on pleasant things . If the individual will is not strong enough alone to overcome this pessimistic tendency to shroud one s self , the family and home in clouds of Imaginary calamities , we should seek in the companionship of others to cultivate a happier frame of mind . Get out among people , become interested in the affairs of others , even widely beyond the neighborhood environment , and in the great general interests of all humanity lose the depression caused bv individual foreboding . True , we learn of widespread misery and suffering ; just now famine...

THE SUMMER VACATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

THE SUMMER VACATION . A little special planning should be given to the children s employment and enjoyment during the summer vacation months . Freed from school tasks it is not wise to give them too much freedom . Satan finds some mischief still for idle hands to do , is a worn but not wornout old saying . The children should have an abundance of playtime and time for reading , but in every well regulated household every child will be required to perform certain tasks daily as his share of the work necessary for the comfori of the family , and to perform them at the same time as near as may be , faithfully and well , thus acquiring habits of promptness , perseverance , industry and neatness . A boy is made more manly and a girl more womanly by being Impressed with the importance of their regular assistance in making the home comfortable and attractive . If John must go to town on errands , and his regular work in the home be neglected or done by someone else for that day , when he r...

THE FARMER AND THE AUTOMO -BILE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

THE FARMER AND THE AUTOMOBILE . The above subject will present to the mind s eye of our readers the familiar cartoon of the steaming automobile on the country road meeting a farmers team and utterly demoralizing the whole outfit , the horses rearing and plunging and the farmer apparently frightened into partial imbecility clinging helplessly to the reins , the wagon on two wheels . The fact is that the farmer has no more prejudice against the motor car than has any other right minded individual , and this prejudice exists only against the hare brained chaffeurs in charge of them . There seems to be something in the feeling of being able to spin along tho road at a high rate of speed that unbalances every man who takes hold of the lever . Men who have been peaceable , law abiding citizens , up to the time of their purchase of one of these terrors on wheels , become utterly reckless of the laws commands and regardless of tho rights of their fellowm en the moment they acquire sufficien...

USES OF INDUSTRIAL ALCOHOL , [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

USES OF INDUSTRIAL ALCOHOL , After the industrial alcohol law , as amended by the last Congress , goes into effect September 1 st next , we may expect some wonderful developments , provided the commissioner of Internal revenue , in whom is vested the power of prescribing certain regulations , does not so hedge about its manufacture and storage with restrictions that shall be prohibitive . This he did after the passage of the law last year , but in response to the demands of the public amendments were passed by the last Congress which would seem to cut the commissioner s red tape and warn him against again so tying up the law as to render it Inoperative . It is expected that local distilleries and warehouses will be established everywhere , not only as private business enterprises , but co-operatively by farmers , where this source of light , heat and power may be manufactured so cheaply as to entirely revolutionize the manner of conducting many Industries , including some lines of a...

The Work of the Grange . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

The Work of the Grange . While the grange as originally organized was perhaps Intended as more of a social and educational movement , its usefulness can and should be extended along all lines of farmers Interests . Wherever a grange exists any other general organization of farmers should not be necessary , nor should any be made . All co-operative efforts for any purpose may be made through the grange with less trouble and expense than in any other way , for the grange is already organized In local , state and national bodies , and Is thus prepared to arouse Interest very quickly and create public sentiment In favor of any question it presents . We are told , interest in the grange has all died out ; nobody attends grange meetings now but a few women ; nobody cares anything about the grange but the officers , and all they care for It is to go jaunting around the state free of expense , etc ., etc . But and if all this be true—and unless those who make such statements attend grange m...

Canning Fruits and Vegetables [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

Canning Fruits and Vegetables Tjo perfectly preserve fruits and vegetables two things are necessary ; that each particle shall be thoroughly cooked , to prevent fermentation and destroy all bacteria or spores of organisms that might set up decomposition , and that it be enclosed in air-tight receptacles to guard against any further decomposition . It is also desirable to preserve it as nearly as possible in its natural form and state . Only perfect products should be used for canning , which should be carefully prepared , Cans should be in readiness that have been tested by filling with hot water , placing upon each a rubber and cover and turning top down for a few minutes . If any water escapes , the can is not air tight , and either the rim of the cover must be straightened with the hammer to make it so , or another cover found that will stand the test . Only new rubbers should be used , and sometimes two will make the can air tight when one fails . Keep each cover , rubber and ca...

Short Notes on Health . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

Short Notes on Health . Hard water is Injurious to the skin . The clearest , most sparkling water , may be full of deadly germs . The best medicine for children Is fun , frolic , out-door play and unrestraint . Many a woman thinks she needs medicine , when all she needs Is an afternoon nap . Dont try to rest yourself by eating a hearty meal . When very tired lie down and rest for a little while . Bind a piece of lemon on a corn for three nights In succession and the corn will usually be entirely removed . Olive oil Is one of the simplest and best skin foods . Being a vegetable product it will not cause hair to grow . Wash face in soft water before using . Give the baby something cooling when his mouth and gums are dry and feverish from teething . A very little crushed ice wrapped in clean linen for him to suck , will be very grateful and soothing . Impure drinking water is often the unsuspected source of typhoid fever and other contagious diseases . It is safer to boil drinking wate...

"A Plea for the Flowers . " [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 July 1907

A Plea for the Flowers . WRITTEN FOE THE FARMER S WIFE . Until recently the Northwest was considered by the majority of people , a cold , dreary , unproductive section of country ; then they were graduall y forced to believe it was possible to raise grain there ; but even yet it is not generally known that from the opening of spring the vast rolling green prairies are profusely adorned with an almost endless variety of flowers . One peculiarity of the flowers in this locality is that so many of them are so deliciously fragrant . About the first of April we are greeted by the little blue or lavender crocus , a member of the primrose family ( and by the way it is the emblem of Manitoba . ) It is immediately followed by the Canadian sweet-pea , a plant resembling the ten weeks stock in growth a bright , yellow sweet-pea in bloom and an early hyacinth in fragrance . Most conspicuous among almost a multitude that now put in an appearance , are , the stately scarlet yellow throated meadow...
