Domestic Affairs [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Domestic Affairs Edited by Mrs . -Bertha Oaswell Norton . Words I cannot tell what I would tell thee , What I would say , what thou shouldst hear ; Words of the soul that should compel thee , Words of the -heart to draw thee near . For when thou - smllest , thou , who flllest My life with joy , and I would speak , Els then my lips and tongue are stillest , Knowing all language ls too weak . Look in my eyes ; read there confession : The truest love has least of art ; Kor needs It words for Its expression When soul speaks soul and heart speaks heart . —Madison Cawein , in Frank Leslie s Popular Monthly .
The Doll and the Girl ' s Develop ment [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
The Doll and the Girl s Develop ment . .: By M . B . F . M OTHERS soon realize how much a doll will help in developing womanly qualities in a little girl . Not only the love and care-taking that spring from the embryo motherhood , but the practical ; thought and handiwork necessary in furnishing a wardrobe and kaeping it in order . . ¦ ¦ . *¦ .,: With a little wise direction , taste , neatness in sewing , and judgment in regard to proper dress will be called into play and strengthened for future use in larger ways . Recently a little girl of ten was showing me her big doll and its clothes . Mamma helps me a little in cutting out the dresses , but I do all the sewing myself , she explained . There were print work dresses and aprons , and the neatest little wrappers , • made from solid-colored dark-red print . And there were white aprons to be worn with these . I agreed with the artistic little woman who said she thought her doll looked the best of all in these . A yard of narrow lace...
Evils of Over-Education [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Evils of Over-Education IF your boy s tastes are not scholarly you make him miserable trying to force a love for learning , writes Mrs . Lew Wallace in the Ladies Home Journal . He will go through the books , and the books will go through him ; there is no assimilation . After all , what are our children being educated for ? The boys are to be bread--winners . They must hurry through and hustle for a living . The girls —let us believe it—are the future homemakers . The word helpmeet Is obsoleteleft behind with the woman who made Eden Paradise . Constantly the question is being brought up , Shall this aad that be added to our public schools ? But who asks , Can the scholars endure any more ? They have no protests nor petition ; they must stand like human vessels ready to be filled to the brim with mixtures of facts . I plead for a childhood of the soul as well as of the body , for the free air , the blessed sunshine , the moderate task ended at the schoolhouse . This night young head...

Hygiene ofthe Household [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Hygiene ofthe Household By Elizabeth Armstrong , A . M ,. Author of The Modern Kitohen , etc . CARE OF THE FEET IN COLD WEATHER . L OOK out for the baby ofthe-family first , for he cannot tell when his lit- , tie : feet and hands are cold . See that the feet are kept covered with warm socks either knit or made of soft flannel , but do not let any elastic or string go around the ankles . Have the socks pinned with small safety pins to a bit of flat elastic , the other end of which is pinned in the same way to the shirt or band . But in cold weather it will be necessary to frequently remove the socks , and rub the little feet with warm hands , for they will often , be found to be both cold and damp . The feet of all the children need especial attention , and it is a good plan to have the shoes of the whole family large enough so that warm innersoles of heavy woollen cloth may be , cut out and pasted into the bottoms of the shoes when cold weather comes . • . • -, The wife and mother i...
Flowers for Farmers' Wives—I [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Flowers for Farmers Wives—I By Sara Jay . MY attention has lately been called to this subject by * hearing several women : say : No one in our neighborhood cultivates . flowers . This was spoken of different localities in two counties . It ought not to be true anywhere . I am aware that many farmers wives gives much attention to flower culture , but so far as my acquaintance extends they are the exception and not the rule . Farmers wives are busy women , and they have enough exercise in the performance of their daily labor . Arid yet a little tiirie given to flowers occasionally would rest them by the change from the constant round * of duties . Because the majority ofthem are such busy women they need to cultivate something that will not require very much care . For this reason there is nothing better for them than the hardy flowering shrubs and hardy perennials . With the shrubs one may have a succession of bloom from early spring until September . For very early flowering the Jap...

cientific Home Lessons in Painting and Drawing ( Copyright , 1899 ,. by Meribah B . Walker . All rights reserved . ) ¦ LESSON X . P LEASANT thoughts cluster around the poets homes—thoughts of the beautiful scenery , delightful surroundings and charming associations that Interweave themselves in their immortal songs . The studios are full of canvases drawn from these inspirations ; for , like the poet , the artist sees and feels the good , the true and beautiful ; and throws his whole talent into giving them expression . Our study of Hawthorne s home has been placed in winter , first , because the last color lesson , on atmospheric , grays ., has prepared the pupil to paint a winter scene , HOME OF NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE , CONCORD , MASS and second , because it is now winter , and-, the study of the tints and shades of a winter sky and snow may be made directly from nature . In looking at the cut of Hawthorne s home one can readily see that it will require but little imagination to conv...

Plain Dressing for Roast Fowl [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Plain Dressing for Roast Fowl ; By Eliza J . Carr . , , ; THERE are different kinds of dressing for roast fowl , but I believe the following to be the one most generally used . The best effect in color is perhaps obtained by browning : slices 1 of oread in the oven very carefully ; for-if burned ever s o slightly both color and taste are spoiled , and it is a great advantage to have the bread , sage ; etc ; , prepared the day before using . If preferred , the bread may be fried in butter , but in either case pour boiling water over it as soon-as prepared to soften , using just enough to cover it , as the water must be used in the dressing . For one fowl use-two slices of bread , one-half cup of finely minced onion fried brown in butter , the same of cold boiled potato minced andfriedalso , one tablespoon of powdered and sifted- sage , ; one teaspoon of salt and a &lt; pineh of pepper . The bread may be softened in milk and a well beaten egg added , but neither are necessary ...
