Home-Made Gifts . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
Home-Made Gifts . It is yet some time before the holidays , but little daughters and sisters who wish to prepare their own gifts for each member of the family had best begin to think about it . Scrap pictures , card board , gay bits ol ribbon , silk or satin , may all be fashioned by little fingers into most acceptable and useful presents . If there be any small old-fashioned girls who can knit , they can please some little brother , cousin or friend whp loves to play horse , with long knitted reins hung with tiny bells . The whole affair will cost but little and be far prettier and more durable than can be purchased at a store for $ 1 . Emery bags for the mammas , aunties and sisters are just the thing to hang on the tree . Papas and uncles can be remembered with pocket pincushions and penwipers , and gay soft balls or knitted rattles will catch the baby s eye .
Tracks . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
Tracks . An old lion with shaggy locks invited a nice sleek fox to visit his home . The fox was quite delighted with the attentions of the king of beaBts , whose fame had spread through the forest , and he accepted the invitation . Arriving at the threshold of his den , the cunning fox hesitated for a moment , and drew back , whereupon the lion urged him to go in and make himself at home . Perhaps the lion thought that Mr . Fox was bashful in the presence of strangers , and for this reason hesitated to meet Mrs . Lion and her family . No , said the fox , at length , I see no tracks coming out . That was the secret ot his hesitation . His keen eye had discovered proof that visitors to that abode never came out . The great lion appeared honest and friendly , but the tracks at his door showed he was a deceiver and a murderer . So , not wishing to be served up in a savory dish for the lion s family , the wise fox took to his heels and ran away . The fox was more sagacious than many boys...

Great Fun . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
Great Fun . A jingling match in all its glory is a quaint game , which affords much amusement to the onlookers . A large roped ring is made , into which aro introduced a dozen or so of big boys and young men , who take part the play ; these are carefully blindfolded and turned loose into the ring , where another man is now introduced not blindfolded , with a boll hung round his neck , and his two hands tied behind him . Of course every time he moves the bell must ring , as he has no hands lo hold it , and so the dozen blindfolded men have to catch him . This they cannot always manage if he is a lively fellow , but half of them always rush into the arms of the other half , or drive their heads together or tumble over ; then the crowd laugh and invent nicknames for them when they frequently pitch into one another , each thinking that tho other must hove run against him ou purpose . Now be a good child , said Edith to her younger sister . You mustnt ask for the second piece of cake ; i...

AN ONWARD STEP . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
AN ONWARD STEP . The Farm , Field and Fireside as A Semi-Monthly . While the reception with which our paper has 1 been accorded is exceedingly gratifying to us , yet , as announced by the publisher when he assumed control of the paper , nothing should he left undone which time and money could accomplish to nuike the FAEM , FIELD ABD FEBESIDE the best as well as the leading agricultural paper of this country . In some measure we feel that this desire has been accomplished . Not a day goes by but what we receive from our friends and contemporaries the most assuring letters that our paper is leading all papers of its class . Farmers say that its articles on farm and farm topics are able and practical , that the only thing now lacking is a more frequent issue to make the FAEM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE all that can be desired in a practical agricultural paper . To issue the paper more frequently means a great deal more expense to us . To issue twice a month is to incur twice the cost . To mak...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
Beading and Headers . Horace gave excellent advice when he said , Ye who write choose a subject suited to your abilities , yet it is a well known fact that the popular book is noiasarule the best book . The masses are easily satisfied with a literature that has no intrinsic value or literary merit . The general reader reads to pass away the time , or devours one book after another with restless avidity . In England alone between four and five thousand volumes were printed in 1883 , and a hundred new works are issued every month from the American press . Few of these books will attain any lasting fame . Read to-day , . forgotten to-morrow , must necessarily be the record of the majority . They undoubtedly supply the demand of the day , all having , to some extent at least , their own readers . To select books adapted to various minds and sure to please is a difficult task , but one can always fall back upon the standard works of the great writers and novelists , with at least some pr...
MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 October 1884
MISCELLANEOUS . A Riddle . God mode Adam out of dust , But thought it best to make me first ; So I was made before the man To answer God s most holy plan . My body he did make complete , But without legs , or arms , or feet ; My ways and actions he did control , But I was made without a soul . A living being I then became—It was Adam gave , me my nameThence from his presence I withdrew , And never more of Adam knew . My Makers laws I did obey , Siom them I never went astray . Thousands of miles I run in fear , But seldom on the earth appear . But God in me did something see , He put a living soul in me . A Son of Man my God did claim , And took that soul from me again ; And when that soul from me had fled , I was the same as when first made ; But without arms , or legs , or soul I travel now from pole to pole , I labor hard both day and night—To fallen man I give great light , Thousands of people , both young and old , Will by my death great light behold . The Scriptures , too , I c...
