Seth Woodsum's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
Seth Woodsum's Wife. As Mr. Seth Woodsum was mowing one morning in his lower haying field, and his eldest son, Obediah. a smart boy of thirteen, was opening the mown grass to the sun, Mr. Woodsum looked up towards the house,and beheld his little daughter Harriet, ten years of age, running towards him with her utmost speed. As she came up, he perceived she was greatly agitated ; tears were running down her checks, and she had scarcely breath enough to speak. " O. father," she faintly articulated, (i mother is dreadful sick ; she's on the bed, and says she shall die before you get there." Mr. Woodsum was a man of a sober, sound mind, and calm nerves; but he had, what sometimes happens in this cold and loveless world of ours, a tender attachment for his wife, which made the message of the little girl fall upon his heart like a dagger. Ho droppod hia scythe and ran with great haste to the house. Obediah, who was at the other end of the field, seeing this unusual movement of his father, ...
Method. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
Method. Dispatch is the soul of business, and nothing contributes more to dispatch than method. Lay* down a method for everything, and stick to it in violably, as far as unexpected incidents may allow- Fix one certain hour and day in the week for your accounts, and keep them in their proper order; by which means they will require a very little time, and you can never be much cheated Whatever letters and papers you keep, docket and tie them up in their respective classes, so that you may have instant recourse to any one. Lay down a method also for your reading, for which you allot a certain share of your mornings; let it be in a consistent and consecutive course, and not in that desultory and immethodical manner in which many people read scraps of different authors, upon different subjects. Keep a useful and short commonplace book of what you read, to help your memory only, and for pedanticquotations. Never read history without having maps, and a chronological book or tables lying by...
MY MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
MY MOTHER. ROBERT D. KNOWLES My heart oft turns to thee, my dear beloved mother: Thy image dwells in me, and leaves room tor none other. Like some eereuer lakes, that duplicate the heaven, My soul a glory takes, from thy example given. When sorrow bathes in grief my heart, that trusted strangers, Thy memory gives relief, and wards olf all the dangers. And when in seeming beauty, vice paints the guilt of men, I 'earn from thee my duty, and then am strong again I
Wheat Meal Mush and Wheaten Grits. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
Wheat Meal Mush and Wheaten Grits. There are few at the present time who doubt that a little mingling of the bran with the flour now and then, promotes the health of the digestive organs and facilitates intestinal action—that living on fine flour, and articles consisting of little innutritious matter, is a diet too nutritient as a general thing. Beside, that part of the grain thrown aside by the process of bolting, is said to be the part needed, especially by the young, to form teeth, bones. &amp;c. One of the most agreeable forms of using the unbolted, or " Graham flour," as it was formerly called, is in the form of pudding or mush, made the same as hasty pudding—not very stiff, and eaten with milk, syrup, or cream and sugar. The Wheaten Grits is a relishing dish, used in the same way, —boiled rather longer —about half an hour, over a moderate fire. Both these articles may be had with no more trouble or expense than fine flour—especially by those who take their own grist to...
Unseasonable School Hours. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
Unseasonable School Hours. Fanny Fern contributes to the Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post, the following spirited and well-merited strictures on the unseasonable school hours, just now, not only fashionable in cities, but even beginning to invade the quiet precincts of our village academies and school-rooms: "Just see those young school girls going into yonder building; sacrificed to the horrible custom here in Gotham of immuringchildren in a heated school-room from nine o'clock in the morning till three in the afternoon, to cram their brains with all sorts of 'isms and 'ologics. Oh, for the good old sensible times, when spines were of as much account as brains, when there was a forenoon and afternoon school; when children at twelve and one o'clock, exchanged Geography and Grammar for the needful roast beef and apple pudding. You should see the heavy-eyed—jaded, spiritless NewYork school children at 3 o'clock, dragging languidly home with their piles of books, stopping on the way,...
Valuable Recipes. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 29 March 1855
Valuable Recipes. How to do up Shirt Bosoms. —We often hear ladies expressing a wish to know by what process the gloss on new linens, shirt bosoms, &amp;c. is produced, and in order to gratify them we subjoin the following recipe: «Take two ounces of fine white gum arabic powder—put it in a pitcher, and pour on a pint or more of boiling water, according to the degree of strength you desire —and then having covered it. let it stand all night. In the morning pour it carefully from the dregs into a clean bottle, cork it and keep it for use. A table spoonful of gumwater stirred into a pint of starch made in the usual manner, will give lawn, either white or priuted, a look of newness, when nothing else can restore them after they have been washed." If our lady readers have a better way than the above from the Granite Farmer, please let us know what it is. for there is real comfort in a shirt bosom neatly done up. How to Spice or Pickle Oysters.—Drain the juice into a dish, and sa...
