BIDDY THE HEN. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

BIDDY THE HEN. Tlie lost; egg- -more plainly, the bail egg:—costs the family circle of the United States over £13,200,000 an nually. This loss is by no means the fault of Biddy, the hen, who does her tlu'ifty part, to solve the "high cost of living,'* laying yearly over £80,000,000 worth of eggs. Not a bad one does she lay. How then, do wo, her beneficiaries, manage to despoil ourselves of two in every twelve of her gifts? Biddy^s product is kept by the far 'mor a week 01 two or more before it gets to the country store, where it abides anothei several weeks before shipment to the city commission mer chant. From the retailer, in due or undue season, Biddy's eggs reach the consumer's pantry or ice-box, and thence appear by relays on his tablo. Now, here is a problem of delays which Biddy cannot solve, and it is up to us mere mortals to do it. Everybody * can help a little, and everybody who helps a little is doing a_ public s^ryico —helping to feed our big family. No less an agent tha...

ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

ESPECIALLY FOR SOME HUSBAftnS. Mr. H. L. Rann writes in " Kim ball's Dairy Farmer" :—We never could understand wlxy some men will rig up the cow barn with every new-fangled device on the market, from an auto matio litter carrier to form-fitting stanchions, and still allow their wives to get along with a decrepio, broken backed rheumatic cook stove that first saw the light of day thirty years be fore tbe war with Moxieo. What cliance has a young bride, who learned every thing at college cxcept how to hash brown potaoes, with a stove that has a coughing spell every few minutes, and foods the btichen with soft coal •smoke. . But then, this ivorld is full of bilious husbands who married some prize winner in the Latin course, and woke lip later to find that while she could pin the shoulders of a Greek root to the mat three times out of five she didn't know whether a cook stove could be started from the seat or had to be cranked with a half hitch.
