Picture Framing , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Picture Framing , A good deal of attention has been given to the artistic framing of pictures recently , and very novel effects may be produced which make a handsome subject of the simplest engraving or colored photograph . For a large picture , a cheap and unique frame may be manufactured of an ordinary pine frame , over whioh is tacked , crossing at the corners , three rows of . small rope—the usual clothes-line grass rope being the proper kind . Tack or secure the ends on the back of the frame , so that when the picture is fastened within , heavy brown paper or muslin may be pasted over as a finish . After the ropes are on , stain the whole in imitation ash or oak ; then with gilding , bronze , or the blue , rose and copper tints that may be bought , touch the rope lightly over either at intervals or entirely . A mat of cof-fee-sacking gilded , or some of the rich Japanese papers that may be bought reasonably , would harmonize well with such a frame . Old frames covered with velv...
A Delicious Prescription . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
A Delicious Prescription . Persons consumptively inclined , those with feeble digestion , aged people , and those inclined to chilliness and cold extremities , are especially benefited by a liberal , use of sweet cream ; No other article of food or medicine will give them results equally satisfactory , and either as a food or medicine it is not bad to take .

Where sweet cream can be had ood-Uver oil ls never needed . The volatile and easily appropriated ruiotuous matter in cream , besides contributing directly to warmth and vigor , aids indireotly by promotlng ^ digestion for the same reason , and in the same way that other aromatic and attenuated oils aid the digestive function .

Eating Lemons . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Eating Lemons . Various hobbies spring into existence , flourish for a time , and then are forgotten . At one period lemons were recommended for almost every ailment nnder the sun , and there is no doubt but a judicious nse of the frnit is extremely beneficial . Th ? powerful acid of the juice should not be taken into the Btomach undiluted , as nnder snob circumstances it will ln time invariably produce inflammation . A pleasant lemonade , with a very small modicum of sugar , if taken immediately after rising and again before retiring , will dear the system of humor and bile without the weakening effects whioh follow the nse of blue pills , or quinine . Lemons are largely recommended for the treatment of rheumatism , and many undoubted cures of this dreaded disease have been thus effected .

In other terms , the waist lining is buttoned together like the waist itself , then the outside is pleated and trimmed from top to bottom with ribbons which are tied together . Many waists are fastened on the side , or pleated and double breasted . Belted waists are muoh worn , the belt being fastened with a buckle , a double clasp , or huge round buttons in the shape of grelots . INEXPENSIVE dresses that are also pretty and gay are made with the basque of different material from the skirts—a fashion always popular with economists , as it permits change and variety in limited wardrobes . For such suits the basque may be of plain oioth or of velveteen , or else of Jersey cloth , and the skirt one of the plaids now in vogue , or else a dark Scotch tartan of mixed blue and green , or otthe newer striped wools that may be in lengthwise stripes for short women , or in stripes around the skirt for tho...

Giant Crabs of Japan . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Giant Crabs of Japan . We started one afternoon in one of the small native boats and skirted the bay for seven or eight miles , finally arriving at the mouth of a small river , Here we went ashore , and the Japanese soon rigged up a tent of brash , in which we were to pass the night , as it was only after dark that the sea spiders could be seen . It was dusk when we reached the spot , and for three mortal hours we sat there speechless , , watching the shore . The tide was on the ebb , and finally the fisherman grasped me suddenly by the arm and pointed down the shore a way . There I soon made out a curious , lumbering object making its way up out of the water . The moon was rising , and at every move the creature glistened and sparkled as lf lt was drenched with molten silver . On it came , until finally I could make out the outline of a gigantic crab that was undertaking the uncrab-like operation of leaving the water and taking to dry land . I waited until the animal stopped and sh...
A Young Hero and His Seward . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
A Young Hero and His Seward . BY HELEN STANNABD A small , rough house , tar from any other human habitation , hid itself , the balmy summer through , amid the surrounding foliage ; but the cruel wintry blasts , tearing away its leafy coverings , left it in desolate nakedness , in full view of the * railway trains whioh , several times daily , sped noisily by on their way east and west . In this humble abode a widowed mother and her son found shelter . Three short years before they were living comfortably in the nearest village . The sudden death of the husband and father , combined with a series of lesser misfortunes , caused them to exchange their pretty home for this , which they obtained at a trifling cost from its first proprietor . And here they lived ever since—how , their old friends and neighbors scarcely knew . True , James , the son , went to and from the village , laden with numerous packages . His herbs , nicely picked and carefully assorted , were always acceptable at t...
Bruin a Fishing . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Bruin a Fishing . A huge bear was lying upon a large hollow log across a brook fishing . There was a large hole through the log on which he lay , and he thrust his forearm through the hole and held his open paw in the water , and waited for the fish to gather around and into it ; and when filled he clutched his fist and brought up a handful of fish and sat and ate them with great gusto , then down went the paw again and so the feast was continued . The brook waa fairly alive with little trout and red-sided and black suckers . The bear did not eat their heads . There was quite a pile of them on the log . I suppose the oil ln his paw attracted the fish and baited them even better than a fly hook . His toe nails were the hooks , and sharp ones , too . Once grabbed the fish were sure to stay .

What to Do with the Surplus . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
What to Do with the Surplus . The country is in tribulatiqn because it has produced more than an unusual supply . We were nearly ready to remark that the production was more than we could constime , and the world is being searched in hopes of finding a foreign market to which the surplus may be sent for sale , but the prospect is that the lessening of the great accumulated wealth must bo done at home . Why should the production of wealth be a curse to this country , asds claimed by the modern political economists , who study the subject from one Bide only , while the remainder is unexplored ? Wealth is not really a curse , but whenever the entire population assists to produce it , and yet are denied tho privilege of enjoying it , it is absurd to make the arrogant claim of ovorproduotion . - Though it is admitted that the American working classes receive greater compensation for labor than do those of foreign countries , yet the very faot that they are unable to procure the products ...
