Steel , Silver or Gold . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

Steel , Silver or Gold . ABOUT ono of the first presents that girlie gets after she grows some , is a cute little thimble , and it s awfully funny to see her try to use it , before she knows how . The head of the needle goes anywhere and every where but into the holes until it has to behave itself . The thimble ls an invention of oftr Dutch friends , and was first brought to London by one John Lofting , ln 1695 , who began its manufacture at Islington . Its name was derived from the words thumb and bell , being for a long time called thumble , ISSII , and only lately thimble . Old records say that thimbles were at first worn on the thumb , but we can hardly conceive how they would be of much use there .

From an Autobiography . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

From an Autobiography . LKAF vnr . Homesickness is a terrible thing . Did any of of you ever suffer from it ? I could scarcely eat or drink , and the first day I could limp comfortably , . kissed the baby good-bye and trotted straight to the southeast . At first the heat was intense , but it gradually grew cooler , and the merry harvest songs wafted across the fields found echo in my heart . The grass was dotted everywhere with tiny starry blossoms and the sorrel blooms , while large bright clusters of Sweet William rose above it here and there . Butter flies flitted lightly through the air , and swarms of grasshoppers flew up continuously , striking me with their sharp , hard wingB . Once an ugly toad hopped across my path , but his eyes were not unfriendly , though I did distrust the striped snake , that glided swiftly away into the long grass . From time to time , a cunning little colt , or maybe two or three , would bound up to the rail fence , looking across it or between the b...

As if like thistle blossoms blown At random , desolate and strmon , Now here and tltere and everyicliere , And all the while that aeronaut Wasplaying nature s life line out I • I traced it by me nervous thread \ Back to its little silken lair . Safe hid In a verbena bed . It never cut that cable fine . But left its home-along the line . And then I thought and then I said : Our life line in the love of home . Oh , make it fast whereer you roam . Amid the rough worlds rolling strife . It ta tlie anchorage of life . KITCHENS . Too frequently the kitchen is the dullest , dreariest room in the house . On the contrary it should be the sunniest and brightest—in fact , a spot where bard toil is sweetened by aU that is possible in the way of cheer and comfort . There is ordinarily no room for more than simply useful utensels , bu...

A Comic Concert . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

A Comic Concert . In this performance the company lor the time imagine themselves to be a band of musiolans . Theleader of the band is supposed to furnish each of the performers with a different musical instrument . A violen , a harp , a flute , a piano , a banjo , a jews-harp and all the many instruments possible are to be imitated at tne same time . The leader begins playing a tune on his imaginary instrument , the others all do the same , the scene presented being ludicrous in the extreme . Quite suddenly the leader stops playing and making an entire change in voice and attitude substitutes for his own instrument that belonging to someone else . Tho performer who has thus been deprived of his instrument takes the place of the leader .

The American Book Makers and Buyers . The season of book sales in London has this year been exceptional . Many are surprised that with trade so depressed , and a smaller foreign demand for rare and beautiful books , the prices have not only been sustained but forced • ftp to higher figures . The fact is when magalflcent libraries whichforso many years have been in the possession of titled owners , are finally offered for sale , the London bookseller finds the American book buyer his most appreciative and profitable customer . With every year the public and private libraries of America amass a richer store . We are rapidly becoming a nation ot readers witb a wonderful digestive faculty of absorbing an almost unlimited quantity and variety of literature . If Seneca was forced to cry out in the olden days , A multitude of books distract the mind , what would he say to the Niagara New York and Boston publish yearly ? English critics have of late condescended to devote considerable space...

MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

MISCELLANEOUS . Stopping leaky Roofs . To do this cheaply , water-lime and coal tar may bo used . Combine the water-lime und coal tar by first ^ thinning the latter by adding common benzine , ono part of benzine to twelve of coal tar , then stir in good water-lime ( entirely freed from lumps by sifting ) until you have the -consistency of a strong paint , and paint this on the leaky roof , covering every part and filling all cracks . Apply at once a good dusting of waterlime to this painted surface before it dries . The water-lime retards the running of tho tar , forms a hard coating by the action of water , and conceals the very disagreeable color of the coal tar . Of course fire must be kept from this paint lest the inflammable benzino should start a combustion difficult to control . The benzine reduces the stickiness of the tar , enables it to combine or mix more easily with the water-lime , makes it easier to spread on the shingles , and it soon evaporates , leaving a firm and e...

And love It all the more ; And eer will hope that in this life , Whatever lot I share , T ne er may be unworthy of This l...

And garner up lis fruit of tears . Ihe waters know their own and draw The brook that springs in yonder heights ; So flows the good with equal law Unto . tJie soul of pure delights . The stars come nightly to the sky , The tidal wave unto the sea : Nor time , nor space , nor deep nor high . Can keep my own away from me .

THEIR FIRST QUARREL . ASA E . H . Such a trifle as it was to make so great a fuss about ! Their very first quarrel ,. too ! Pretty little Mrs . Carylon , her big blue eyes misty with tears , could bear it no longer . Jack ! she exclaimed , I do believe you dont love me half so well as yon did six months ago , or you would not speak so unkindly to me , and the waiting drops splashed down thick and fast , until a regular April shower was in progress . I m a brute ! thought Mr . Carylon . But ho didnt say it . He wasnt quite ready to give up the notion that he was a much abused mortal . He was one of the sort who like to nurso a grievance , and who magnify molehills into mountains . Not love you ? Of course I do , responded ho somewhat sheepishly . No you < Jo-o-nt , sobbed his wife . Well—but—see here , my love— began Jack Carylon , with the idea of rehearsing the whole subject , and making it plain to the feminine understanding that he was in the right . Mrs . Carylon perc...
