Miscellaneous [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898
Miscellaneous A Wandering Car On December 25 , 1896 , Minneapolis and St . Douis ear No . 3 , 118 left Minneapolis With a load of flour destined to Montgomery , Ala . It went through to its destination With reasonable promptness—about eight days . Instead of returning the car via the same route as received , the Atlanta and West Point Railroad started it on a series of diversions , and it has not yet reached home , although at one time It got as far north as Peoria , Illinois . There it was turned back , evidently with another load for the South , as it was delivered to the Southern Railway on September 28 , 1897 . Since that time the owners have not been able to locate it at all . It has made a trip to New York , Boston and Montreal , but was returned westward and southward via the same route until it reached the southern lines , since which time it has been wander- ; ing around among the southern states .

Domestic Uses of Beef [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898
Domestic Uses of Beef By Caroline A . Huling . HINTS ON BUYING . The retail butcher in . cutting up meat as ordered generally weighs it before trimming , making the customer pay full price for portions which go into the scrap and are sold at a small price for soapmaking . The marketmaui thus gets paid for this not Inconsiderable part of his wares twice over , the first time usually getting a high valuation therefor . The economical housewife will insist upon getting all that she pays for , and makes the trimmings valuable for soup stock . Meat when delivered by the butcher should be at- once removed from the paper and . put in a cool place until needed . Care should be taken that it does not come into direct contact with the ice . If the refrigerator is large enough , it is better to hang the piece up so that the cool air surrounds it No good housewife will order riieat unless selecting it herself . The dealer is almost sure to take advantage of her in some way or other if only in s...

It has still other properties : it will restore color to gray hair in just ten times out of every ten cases . And it does even more : it feeds and nourishes the roots of the hair .
