To Restore Soiled Garments [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
To Restore Soiled Garments Grease spots should be taken out of garments as soon as discovered , as they are then much easier to remove . Benzine is one of the best articles for cleaning purposes . Where the color is injured it is often difficult to restore it . Wetting with ammonia or a mixture of chloroform and alcohol is sometimes effective ; a strong solution of borax is also said to be efficacious . When soiled black or colored silk may be cleaned by spreading out on a table and sponging on both sides with warm water , to which a little ammonia and powdered borax has been added . The French clean light silks with alcohol , white soap and a little sugar mixed together . Black cashmere , or other black woolen goods , may be freshened and cleaned by sponging on the wrong side with strong hot coffee . If very much soiled and spotted the goods should first be washed in borax water , dried , then sponged and pressed . Wine , fruit or acid stains may be taken out of colored silk or cas...
Woman and Home [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
Woman and Home Heroes of War and Peace Ay , that is a story that takes one s breath How the men rowed out in the face of death ; Rowed as calmly as fishermen may Who haul their nets at the break of day , But never was fishnet hauled in the weather That rille and cannon and shell together Rained on those sailors who drew from its bed The wise sea serpent and crushed its head . Heroes of-war are they ! Song and story Shall add their names to the list of glory . But where is the story or where is the song For the heroes of peace and the martyrs of wrong ? They fight their battles in shop and mine ; They die at their post and make no sign . And the living envy the fortunate dead As they light for a pittance of butterless bread . They herd like beasts in a slaughter pen ; They live like cattle and suffer like men . Why , set by the horrors of such a life , Like a merry-go-round seems the battles strife ; And the open sea , and the open boat , And the deadly cannon with bellowing throat ....

Just Around the Corner [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
Just Around the Corner Was you goin to throw them flowers away , ma am ? Jane was standing in the middle of the room , duster in hand , watching me attentively as I listlessly refilled a bowl with fresh roses , tossing the others on the table , though they were scarcely withered at all . What did it matter ? The conservatory was full of flowers . Yes , you may gather them in a paper and take them , Jane , I replied , wondering a little at the girl s sudden interest . Would it be all the same to you , ma am , if I kept em ? she asked , as she carefully placed them in the paper . Do what you like with them , I answered , turning away . Dropping wearily in my chair , I took up my book again when something—oh , these mysterious somethings —made me look up . She was standing at the table carefully holding the paper of flowers and gazing intently at me with her honest blue eyes . Jane was a typical Irish girl , and her blue eyes with their dark lashes , and her black hair , together with ...

Cooking in the Public Schools [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
Cooking in the Public Schools The Chicago board of education is moving along the lines of educational progress in making provision for the introduction of domestic science—cooking and sewing—into the public schools of this city . Experimental ventures have been made already in three schools , notably the Kozminski , which hare been attended with good results . It is the intention of the board to introduce domestic science the coming year into sixteen other schools , distributed throughout the city . It is to be assumed , therefore , that the teaching of cooking and sewing henceforth will be a regular part of the educational work of the Chicago public school system . The purpose of ttiS public school system is to prepare children of both sexes for usefulness to themselves and to society throughout life . For this many things are necessary besides the ability to read , write and cipher , and a knowl- ¦ edge of the written branches . No girl who expects to be the head of a household wh...

A Great Surprise [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
A Great Surprise It was just too queer for anything . Tommy was walking slowly down behind the barn , with his usually merry face all scowls . And Teddy was peeping through the slatted fence into Tommy s garden , with a whole great family of wrinkles in his little forehead . And what do you suppose that it was all about ? Out in Teddys yard grew a great , tall horse-chestnut tree , and one crisp October morning a shower of pretty brown nuts came tumbling out of their thick , green shells—down , down , down , until at last they reached the broad gravel walk and smooth , green lawn . Tommy spied them as he came hurrying home from school that noon , and then the scowls came to make him a visit . That new boy has everything ! he exclaimed , crossly . He has tops , an bails , an a bicycle , an —an now he s got the horse-chestnuts ! Taint fair , so it isnt ! And poor little discontented Tommy looked crosser than ever . But Tommy didnt realize that down in his garden grew something that th...
Our Boys and Girls [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
Our Boys and Girls How Does It Seem to You ? It seems to me Id like to go Where bells dont ring nor whistles blow , Nor clocks dont strike , nor gongs dont sound , And Id have stillness all around—Not real stillness , but just , the trees T . ow whisperings , or the hum of bees , Or brooks faint babbling over stones In strangely , softly tangled tones . Or maybe a cricket or katydid , Or the songs of birds in the hedges hid , Or just some such sweet sounds as these To nil a tired heart with ease . If twerent for sight and sound and smell , Id like a city pretty well ; But when it comes to getting rest I like the country lots the best . Sometimes it seems to me I must Just quit the city s din and dust , And get out where the sky is blue , And say . now , how does it seem to you : —Eugene Field .
A Boy Bonanza Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
A Boy Bonanza Farmer Near Crookston , Minn ., resides Charlie Johanson , who is called the bonanza boy farmer and his story is more interesting than any make-believe story fdr boys ever written , because it is true to facts and shows what sort of luck goes with pluck . Twelve years ago John Johanson left his home in Norway , leaving behind his wife and two boys , Charlie aged five and Frank aged two , and came to the United States to make a home for those he left behind . Almost before Johanson got to New York a baby girl came to his far-off home . That this man was a good husband and father is shown by his having , before leaving Norway , leased a little plot of ground paying the rent for seven years , and from this his good wife was willing to try to make a living for herself and wee ones until such time as the husband and father could send for them to come to him . John Johanson labored at any work he could get to do and in 1889 he had saved , enough to enable hinj to buy a few f...
Teaching Politeness [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898
Teaching Politeness A mother noticed a remarkable change in the deportment of her six-year-old son . From being rough , noisy and discourteous , he had suddenly becpme one of the gentlest and most considerate little fellows in the world . He was attending the kindergarten , and his mother naturally inferred that the change was somehow due to his teachers instruction . Miss Smith teaches you to be polite ? she remarked , in a tone of interrogation . No , said the boy , she never says a word about it . The mother was puzzled , and all the more when further questioning brought only more emphatic denials that the teacher had ever given her pupils lessons in good breeding . Well , then , the mother asked , finally , if Miss Smith doesnt say anything , what does she do ? She doesnt do anything , persisted the boy . She just walks around , and we feel polite . We feel just as polite as —anything . That was all he could tell about it , and his mother began to see through the mystery . —Chri...
