DOMESTIC AFFAIRS . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
DOMESTIC AFFAIRS . Edited by Mrs . Bertha Caswell Norton . The Sunlight of Love The world has been weary and lost to Love s art ; . There was rain on tlie hills , but the sun s out , sweetheart ! ~~ And all the birds singing , And all the bells ringing . And roses in desolate pathways are springing . The world has been weary ; but lo ! the clouds part ; There was rain in life s skies , but the sun s ont , sweet heart ! And rainbows are bending And messages sending Of Gods love and your love , unending—unending ! The world has been weary , but sorrow now seems , In tbe sunlight of love , like an echo of dreams ! See ! see ! the clouds part ; All has leaned to Love s art , And the sunlight of Love is where you are , sweetheart ! —Frank L . Stanton , in Atlanta Constitution .
Idiosyncrasies of Noted People [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Idiosyncrasies of Noted People By Belle P . Drury . DR . JOHNSON wns noted for his peculiarities , one of which -wns a habit of suddenly breaking- cut with scraps of the Lord s prayer in a fashionable assembly . He was also accustomed to strike every post with his cane that he passed along the sidewalk . Madam de Staol had a bizarre idea that she would suffer from cold when buried . Perhaps Wesley also had some sucli feeling , as lie ordered that only woolen clothes should be put upon his corpse . Pascal was so haunted by fear of a gulf yawning just in . front of hint Hint he was sometimes tied to keep him from leaping forward . * Tho poet Young kept a . human skull on his study table . Perhaps this accounts for the dismal element in his Night Thoughts . It was a peculiarity of Sheridan , that ho always forgot to pay his debts , so a cast of his hand was made and kept at the honse where lie had lived-and in which it was said his ghost was often heard scratching away ith a pen .

War and Women [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
War and Women By Meribah E . Walker . MEN seem really to be outgrowing what has been in all previous ages the yery worst feature of war—the savage cruelty shown toward defenseless women in . the hour of triumph , writes Thomas Wentworth Higginson in Harper s Weekly , Oct . 22 . It is well to emphasize this thought in the public mind . Men have not fought with more frenzy to protect their own lives in all past ages than they have to protect their women and children , for they have learned from brutal warfare that a quick death by blade or bullet could not compare with the fiendish tortures that often awaited their captured women . Knighthood sprang up as a rebuke to Where llie lantern signaled- raid Revere on h s famous ride from Boston to Lexington , April 1810 , 1775 , to arouse the minute-men . This ride is told of by Longfellow iu his poem , Midnight Bide of Paul Revere . such inhuman revenges , and the progress of civilization across the old continent bears witness to the gradua...

Culture of Geraniums [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Culture of Geraniums By Susie Judd . IIIORIO are no house plants moro attractive or easy to raise for the busy * housewife than geraniums . If half taken care of they will bloom profusely during the most of the winter , but if well taken care of the plants will be nicer and have larger clusters of bloom . ¦ There arc so many varieties of geraniums . and colors of bloom , differing in tint aiid / shade , which tends to make tliem so attractive . J- the fall of the year I repot all my geraniums . I take rich , mellow dirt and put it in pans and set them in the oven , heating it thoroughly to kill all animal life that it may contain . Then shovel up a little charcoal and mix with the dry earth , wliich also helps to keep the plants free from animal life and makes the , plants hardier . Put tbis ; earth into the pots ,, first placing a . few gravel stones or broken china to effect good drainage . Moisten , the earth thoroughly and let it . stand a couple of days before transferring the ...

Simple Games [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Simple Games Here are two simple games which will afford several hours of amusement in the evening or some stormy day , when the chip dren cannot go to school . Finding the Rings .

If the ends of undersleeves or the bottoms of drawer legs nre frayed and worn , cut off and sew the ribbed part of sock legs on in their place . They are a No . 1 substitute .

Good pieces of old socks will repair other socks better thnn anything T ever tried . 1 use them to patch the heel when the hole is too large to darn , also to resole the foot . This last is quite a discovery rind if the edges are whipped together instead of beng seamed , the result will be satisfactory both ns to looks and comfort . It doesnt pay us to mend school stockings very much where there are smaller children for whom the stockings can be made ove...
