THE LADIES' COLUMN. Be Gentle With My Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
THE LADIES' COLUMN. Be Gentle With My Wife, Be gentle! foryou little know How many trials rise: Although to thee they may be small, To her of giant size. Be gentle ! though perchance Iay speak a murmuring tone, The heart may beat with kindness yet, And joy to be thine own. Be gentle! weary hours of pain, 'Tis woman's lot to bear; Then yield her what support thon can'st, And all her sorrows share. Be gentle ! for the noblest hearts At times may have soma grief, And even in a pettish word May seek to find relief. Be gsntle ! for unkindness now May rouse an angry storm, That all the afteryears of life In vain may strive to calm. De gentle! none are perfect, Thoo'rt dearer far then life : Then, huasband, bear and still foroear, Be gentle to thy wife. 0

To Preserve Summer Fruits. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
To Preserve Summer Fruits. ------ If you want strawberry preserves to be a beautiiul color as well as specially nice, the berriesmust be picked the same day they are preserved. Utther them earlyin the morning, and do not let them be. heaped up in a basket or bowl, but laid on dishes to be capped. Select' the fruit, and do not allow a bruised or imper fect berry aulong what you use. Allow one pound of white sugar toeach pound of berries. Sprinkle half of the sugar on the dishes and over the berries, and let them stand for an hour or two to draw enough juice to moisten the sugar. When you are ready to begin preo. serving, put the rest of the augar in the kettle and pour over it the juice thus drawn. Set the kettle on the fire, and let the syrup begin to cook. In half an hour after it has begun to simmerthoroughly, put in one-quarter of the berries and letthem cook for ten ninutes. Lift them out carefully with a perforated ladle, spread them on a dish, and set out in the sun. Iroceed t...
AGRICULTURAL COLUMN [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
ACGRICULTURAL COLUMN Every cow huas limit to her digestion, and hence overfeeding is just as erroneous as under feeding. And there as a vast difference in in dividual cows as to their digestive and assimi lative organs andfunctions. One cow will eat more than another; or one will eat as much as the other and hence will not direst the food so well, and hence will not give the same re turns in milk and butter, but a large share of the ration will pass through unappropriated by the assimilative organs, to help swell the manure pile. Study your cows, each one individually, if you would feed with the view of securing the greatest amount of profit from the least amount of food. Study upon feed rations ; and getting well posted on the theory, make some careful experiments to prove that theory value able in actualpractice. And as no one set rule can be given to compound a ration for all dairy eowsand all seet:sou-you will have to use your beet judgue?t in modifying or adding to, m the forma...

California Fruit Trade. -o. During IS,2 the total of California's fruit exports was 4.09,917,216 pounds, to carry which there were required 20,495 freight cars, and if to this there be addted the export of wine and brandy amounting to 12,061,472 gallons, the total shipments by rail amounted to 23,326 car loads. It is better.p.rhaps.to illustrate the amount of this business by comparison than in any other way. In 1SG0 writes the ' San Francisco Chronicle" our total fruit shipments, including green citrus, dried and caunned fruits and nuts and raisins, amounted to ;323,914,185 pounds. Iu 1392 the same shipments came to 374,821,000pounds, or an increrse of about 16 per cent. It is to be noted that the chief increase was in the shipments of canned fruits by sea. In 1890 our export of canned fruitbysea amounted to the equivalent, of 761 rarloads, while in 1S92 the export by sea elualled 1724 carloads. England took 172,073 cases in 1891, and 191,997 cases in Ib92. Australia more than doub...

"I've had msuyagoodsurgeonlook at it and ask b the same question.

Nail-Biting. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
Nail-Biting: " Onychophagia " is the jaw-trying name of a new disorder. It comes from Paris, but is not as fashionable as it will be when a few specialists are imported. Onychophagia is the scientific name for the bad habit of nail.biting. It is Groek and means nail-eating. At a recent meeting of the medical society of the French Academy a paper was read on the sub. ject thatprovokedsa exciting, becausenovel, discussion. The author went so far as to assert that nail-eating was a sign of degeneracy, indicating not only nervous, but moral weakness. He pronounced the habit a disease that was both hereditary and con tagious. If a remedy was prescribed it was not given out for publication. This will be joyful news fos the enterprising manicure artists.
The Bath. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
The Bath. A bath is cooling or stimulating according to the friction applied. An authority on this subject gives the following prescrip tion for a cool or summer bath :-A dip into cool water: white soap if the skin needs cleansing; mop dry first with a sponge and then with a soft towel. This sort of bath has a wholesome effect on children and is partica. arly good for young mothers and nurses who need to economise their strength. The bath taken with the friction of flesh brushes and coarse towelsis stimu. lating andshould be followed by rest or some light nourishment to counteract the ehanutive results. There are 7,000,000 pores in the body These windows of therespiratary system are wideopenafter astimulatigbath, andifit is convenient to go from the bath to the bed the very best results will be obtained. A catnap of five or ten minutes will prevent an attack of cold and give the body the sensation of accumulated force. The sani tary value of the sponge bath can hardly be esggerated....

Poultry Scratchings. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893
Poultry Scratchings. The Mediterranean strains never sit. Bone meal should be mixed with the chickens' food. Improve Youra Ons o f y ita lowsI by introducing pure strains. It is well-known that poultry do beet on land which contains iron stone. Avoid swilled crops by providing a supply of grit for the breeding pens. This is the season for vermin. Cleanliness prevents and assists to cure the trouble. It strict attention is paid to all departments of a poultry farm no such thing as disease will be heard of. Never allow too many chickens to occupy one house or run. Remember, small numbers and fresh soil for each lot. If your fowls are kept on soil which does not contain coarse grit, it will be necessary for yoen to provide a supply. Prepare for the coming hot weather: keep the roosting houses thoroughly clean: have as little straw as possible in the nest boxes. Ducks, geese and turkeys should be bred in large numbera by those who have plenty of grass land; only select the pure strains....
