NORTHWESTERN FUEL SITOATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

NORTHWESTERN FUEL SITOATION . Residents on the Northwestern frontier are . being urged by station agents , agents of the coal corporations and the newspapers to lay in a supply of fuel now and prevent a recurrence of last winter s hardships , when vhe railroad companies found their equipment Inadequate to hs . ul sufficient fuel to supply the demand when it was most needed , or even to keep their roads open during mid-winter storms . Now they say to the settlers , in effect , you . must prepare for the same experiences the coming winter , if you do not buy your fuel now . Virtually admitting that they do not expect to furnish , any better transportation facilities than those from which the public suffered a year ago . As coal companies do not do a credit business , and the Northwestern farmer has barely harvested his crop which 1 s not yet threshed and Is therefore some weeks from market , he finds it Impossible to lay In his fuel supply at present and must again take bis chances fo...

One plucky girl- held down her claim three years , with not a house in sight , then married . / She says she would not advise any woman to live so far from neighbors , no matter how strong their nerves . Her worst experience Was a visit from a band of Indians who ate everything eatable In the house , and Anally departed peaceably . She kept hanging on the ; wall of her cabin an old coat arid hat of her father s , which gave strangers the -impression that there was a man In the vicinity , and says she Is sure that simple subterfuge saved her many annoyances .

DOES IT PAY ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

DOES IT PAY ? The present seems an age of moneygetting . The aim of the average man is not to see how much good he can do in this world , how much he can contribute to the well being and happiness of others , or how much real enjoyment he can find in life , but how much money he can get together before he dies . For what purpose ? Few seem to know , and die finally , leaving thelr < wealth to a-favored few , ot to be divided by law , or perhaps to endow some charity or institution of learning , , in the expenditure of which he can have no oversight . Is it not strange that anyone s efforts can be so purposeless ? . So long as -the miser . cannot take his hoard . with him , when he leaves this world , why does he not see that it is put to . some good use , as he may direct while he lives ? Instead of hoarding wealth beyond ones own possible use during his span of life would there not be greater satisfaction In directing , seeing and enjoying the use of the . surplus ? In t...

GAS MANUFACTURED FROM- FARM ' ¦ : ¦ • ¦¦¦¦ WASTES : ' : /; -. ' ' [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

GAS MANUFACTURED FROM- FARM ¦ : ¦ • ¦¦¦¦ WASTES : : /; -. For several years past a Chicago inventor , J . It . Coutts , has been at work with the idea of utilizing the -waste products of the farrii , straw , corn cobs , etc ., for the manufacture of illuminating gas . Success finally crowned his efforts and the first plant has been successfully- established at Beatrice , Neb . The new gas plant is not an experiment on a small scale , but a full fledged gas manufactory and its product is lighting the streets of the city In addition to furnishing gas for heating and lighting hundreds of homes . Instead of paying out hundreds of dollars every day to coal mines and railroads for material from which to make the gas which it sells , the Beatrice plant buys straw and cobs , corn stalks , etc ., throws them into the retorts , and the result is a , splendid gas with 10 per cent more heating power than the best coal gas known . Ton for ton , the straw and cobs make 60 per cent more gas than d...

AMONG THE FLOWERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

AMONG THE FLOWERS . WAITING . Serene I fold my arms and wait ,- Nor care for wind , or tide , or sea : I rave no more gainst time or fate . For lo ! my own shall come to me . I stay my haste , I make delays . For what avails this eager pace ? - I stand amid the eterr . al ways , And what is mine shaJl know my face . Asleep , awake , by night or day , The friends I seek are seeking me ; No wind can drive my bark astray . Nor change the tide of destiny . What matter if I stand alone ? I wait with joy the coming years ; My heart shall reap where it has sown , And garner up its Fruit of tears . The waters know their own , and draw . The brook that springs in yonder height : So flows the good with equal law Unto the soul of pure delight . The floweret nodding in toe wind Is ready plighted to the bee ; And , maiden , why that look unkind ? For lot thy lover seeketh thee . & The stars come nightly to the sky ; The tidal wave unto the sea ; Nor time , nor space , nor deep , nor ...

STOW OF MISSKUTH LEOFAWD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

STOW OF MISSKUTH LEOFAWD . in all the ten years I have been doing newspaper work and It has consisted principally In Interviewing people , men and women In every llne-of work and in every profession known , I have never met anyone whose story has filled me with greater admiration , whose personality has been more pleasing , whose influence for good has been greater , than that of Miss Ruth Leonard . It is a genuine pleasure to tell Miss Leonard s story to the fathers , mothers and daughters who read The Farmers Wife , for every daughter in this broad land faces the possibility of earning her own living , though in truth it may not be a probability in one case out of a hundred . Personally I take great pride in saying that Miss Leonard was born on a farm and lived there until she was nineteen years old . It is a fact which the young woman herself is very proud of and I cannot but feel that every farmers daughter who reads this article will be able to get considerable knowledge of pra...

BEES TIE UP FOUR ROADS . A swarm of bees clustered on the handle of a major switch in the railway yards here today , and for half an hour tied up traffic on four railways , and the Standard Oil Company which had a train of tank cars stretched across the yards was impotent . Half a hundred trainmen and train masters and yard masters galore stormed and fretted , but the storming bees buzzed merrily and clung to the switch handle . A small boy in the crowd took in the situation . My pop can get them bees offn there , he volunteered . Go get him , chorused the division superintendent , and the vardmaster . Pop came and deftly stuffed the bees into a wash boiler and carried them home . Traffic was resumed . —North American .

CONTRASTS CITY AND COUNTRY LIFE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

CONTRASTS CITY AND COUNTRY LIFE . If , you live in a large city you are lost . You are swallowed up by the ocean of people around you . You go down into the deep and thats the last of you , except perhaps an occasional bubble that may come to the surface near where you were last seen . There are so many people you cant escape drowning . You cant make friendships as you do , in a smaller place , where the individual Isnt entirely effaced by the mass . Society is not what it is in the smaller place , whore the human element enters in altogether . In the larger place your comings and goings are not noted by your friends even , and never by the newspapers unless you are one of the high financiers or packing-house bunch . The births , and weddings in your family are of no more interest , outside your own flatthan are the wreaths of smoke curling up into- the empyrean no merry crowd of interested neighbors witli their warm congratulations . The deaths bring little sympathy from the rumbli...

MOTHERHOOD ON THE INSTALL -MENT PLAN . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

MOTHERHOOD ON THE INSTALLMENT PLAN . Progressive Motherhood for Babies and Eight Hours a Day for Wives are two headlines from the daily press that remind us that the world does move . The first of these strictly modern theories is now being demonstrated by twelve young women graduates and under-grad-uates of a Western University and a baby . The latter being only four months old has not yet the advantage of the higher education , but seems about to get it . Six weeks she is to stay with one young woman who is bent on proving the old-fashioned theory that a woman may be a mother though cultured ; and the next six weeks the little fellow—its a girl , of course—is to be trained In calisthenics by the athletic member of the class ; another short period and the pink-and-white bundle passes on to number three , whose qualifications and ideas are as yet unknown to fame . A breathless country awaits the result cf this experlme . it . If successful , it surely means the division of women int...

93 RESf ROOM FOR COUNTRY SHOP -PERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmer's Wife — 1 October 1907

93 RESf ROOM FOR COUNTRY SHOPPERS . ¦ The desirability and even necessity ot providing rest rooms in towns for country shoppers is a subject much discussed just now by local newspapers and other periodicals . The following which comes to us as . an exchange clipping , presents the situation graphically : . Iri the average country town there is no place for the shoppers , especially the women , to rest . It is not satisfying , for Mrs , Henry Brown to sit out in a double box wagon , while Brown is but attending to some business . The three or four children in the bottom of the wagon dont appreciate the situation very much either . So the next time Farmer Brown wants to come to town the better half stays home , and while he is gone she looks through a convenient catalog and makes out a big order to be sent . to theIong distance shops . And may be after all the farmer s wife isnt so lfaueh to blame either . _ You , are the man , Mr . Merchant , who has let that womans trade slip by you...
