THE ORCHARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 July 1884
THE ORCHARD . Drying Fruit . Every fruit farm should have a fruit dryer as a matter of economy . All portions of fruit can be converted into saleable product as is done in the canning factories . There , for instance , the apple is dried , or cooked , and canned . The cores and skins are ground , the first converted into jellies , and the second into vinegar . No portion is wasted , for even the dry refuse is carted away and fed to pigs . Even the seeds are sometimes saved and sold to nurserymen . If the same system of management were pursued on the farm there would , no doubt , be a profit in a crop of apples , but at present thousands of bushels are allowed to rot on the ground , simply because the grower will not provide himself with the proper conveniences for drying fruit . During the drying season much of the work of coring and slicing may be done by the smaller members of the family , and it is much better to preserve them t either by drying , canning , eras jellies , than to...
_________ I __ BI ______ T" ** [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 July 1884
_________ I __ BI ______ T ** Laws Die , Books Never . Thank God for books I Bedside friends , Thackeray called his fovorite authors ; and Langford paid but fitting tribute when in his Preliminary Essay he said ; As companions and acquaintances books are without rivals , and they are companions and acquaintances to be had at all times and under all circumstances . They are never out when you knock at the door , are never not at home when you call . In the lightest as well as in the deepest moods they may be applied to , and will never be found wanting . In tne good sense of the phrase , they are all things to all men , and are faithful alike to all . Perhaps nothing is more remarkable in the literary taste of our day than the wonderful rapidity with which it changes To something new , to something strange ; but in our heart of hearts we each cherish a peculiar fondness for a certain old time friend , whose pages we have conned oer and o er with satisfaction infinite . Fortunate inde...

CONDUCTED BV HELEN STANNAKD . AN IDYL . Id kind of like to have a cot , Fixed on some sunny slope ; a spot Five acres , more or less . With maples , cedars , cherry trees , And poplars whitening in the breeze . Twould suit my taste I guess , To have the porch with vines oerhuwg WUh bells of pendant woodbine swung , In every bell a bee . And round my lattice window spread A clump of roses , white and red . To solace mine and me . I hind of think , I should desire To hear around tlie lawn a choir Of wood-birds singing sweet . And in a dell Id have a brook , Where I might sit and read my book . Such should be my retreat . Far from the city s crowd and noise ; There would I raise the girls and boys ( I have some two or three ) . And if kind Heaven should bless my store . With flve or six or seven more , Sow happy r should be . TWO MODEL HOMES AND A Camp Fire . And the prettiest thing tn the world will be The building of the nest . HOME I . A large tree forms a leafy screen for my wide F...

Drawing the Long Dow . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 July 1884
Drawing the Long Dow . When a man has a bow and arrow as long as those used by the natives of Brazil , so that he has to lie down on his back and hold the bow with his foot when he shoots , they call it drawing the long bow . I am now going to tell you of some wonderful feats in ofchery , which equal those of our backwoodsmen with the rifle . The cloth yard arrows of the Anglo-Saxon soldiers won the victories over the French at Agincourt , Foictiers and Cressy . The poet VirgU , in the Eneld , tells of four archers who were shooting for a prize , the mark being a pigeon tied by a cord to the mast of a ship . The first man struck the mast of the ship with his arrow , the second archer cut the cord , and the third shot the pigeon as it was flying away . There now being nothing for the fourth archer to shoot at , he just drew his bow , and sent the arrow flying toward the skv with such a velocity that the friction of the air set the feathers on fire , and it swept on like a fiery meteo...
Pretty as a Picture . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 July 1884
Pretty as a Picture . Baby doUs , dressed so that the robe will form a bag , are pretty and useful to hold needlework or handkerchiefs . Fasten with a strong needle and thread the front half of the bag to the doll , stitching close to the hem but not through it , so as to avoid interfering with the drawing of the strings . A cap , made of lace , either fastened on with needle and thread or gum , is a great improvement . Any sized doll , of course , can be used , making the robe in proportion to the size .

From an Autibiography . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 July 1884
From an Autibiography . LEAP TV . For a whole week I knew no will , save that of my little master , who would have me eat and drink from his plate and cup , and lie side by side with him in the roomy crib . But one morning when he went off to sleep as usual with his arm about my neck , and I couldnt close my eyes for thinking what glorious fun it would be to go ratting , I heard the door open softly , and two sweet little voices blended in one cry out entreatingly : Oh , mamma ! please maynt we come in and see brother and his doggie ? Well be so good ! who told you about a doggie ? Why ! came the whispered answer , Brother Georgie said he smelt a mice , and he heard it snore , and Tie knew it was a doggie . Oh , that comical boy ! murmured the mistress , half aloud . Then she came to the side of the crib , and looking down into my upturned eyes said , Poor Uttle thing , you must be very tired of lying there so stiU . I wagged my tail gently ln assent . So she kissed the dear tiny ha...

A LOCK OF HAIR ____ WEBB McNEJL . A single curl that clings about my fingerImbued with life Its glossy tendrils seem—Of nut brown hue just shot with gold ; I linger Wliile bitterest tears bedew it as I dream . Strangehowtheyears , unnumbered , halfforgotten , Like lustrous pearls with severed clasp , that slip From off the shining lengths and leave no token . Save vanished , left a name upon my lip . Ah , his name , twas last In anger spoken . Could I forgive the unkind words lie spake ? Ah , me ! to-day were this dumb silence broken , Id kiss the lips that thought my heart to break . With loving kindness I the breach would narrow , With fond caress would hush the angry tone ; Would cliertsh never words nor thoughts that harrow Too late , too late ! so many years have flown . It cannot be that twenty years Ive squandered In vain regrets ; and yet it must be so ! Ah me ! will we meet again , Ive wondered t No , no ! this curl is brown , mine white as snow .

They are of the Aggie family , and are unexcelled . Mr . Mann is at present quite ill , which will be a source of regret to his numerous friends . • Preserving Manure . The value of manure depends upon the mannei in which it is preserved and the quaUty of the material from which it is created . No two manure heaps are alike in composition , nor are the results from manure uniform , as many suppose . Farmers may not always be in a position to control the quality of the feed they allow . but whether it be good or bad it is important that all manure be carefully preserved in order that it may benefit the crops and enrich the soil . On nearly all farms the manure and litter are thrown in a heap in the barnyard , the cornstalks and straw being added to increase the bulk , and to assist in...
