Care of Sheep in Winter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Care of Sheep in Winter By L . P . Abbott . THE key to success with sheep in those sections where housing the flocks is a necessity to thrift and comfort , is wintering well , so the flocks will come to the ground in spring in , thrifty , heatry condition , so the lambs will be strong and the ewes furnish a free flow of milk for the early dropped lambs . It is a good plan when the flock exceeds fifty or sixty head to divided into two or more bands . However careful the feeder and watchful his care , there will be some individuals that fail to thrive with the best , and these should be quartered by themselves , especially if grain is fed to the flock , as invariably the greedy and strong animals will gobble up more , than their share to the injury of the slower feeders and weaker animals . . * ¦ Then the weaker animals are more susceptible to diseases which afflict sheep , but if fed by themselves this timely nursing and care will tend to keep them in a thriving condition , while if ...

Scientific Home Lessons in Paint -ing and Drawing [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Scientific Home Lessons in Painting and Drawing By Meribali E . Williams Walker . LESSON • III .- ^ MONOCHROME . SKETCHING FROM NATURE . B EGINNERS are most successful by sketching with one color only ; Such pictures . are called monochromes . They are much prized even by connoisseurs ; The real color of the object is not considered in monochromes , but the forms , the play of light ; and • shade , and the airiness of the scene should be carefully copied . The handling . of the brush and paints . has much to do-withjthe , effect produced . For example , colors much mixed .. or ground together with 1 he palette-knife take on . a hard , stony appearance , while , on the contrary , ; . colors blended slightly with the brush are bright and airy . . Looking out toward the horizon , one sees a hazy veil that obscures the distant objects , and it is evident that , in painting the scene , this haze must be copied just as truly as the objects that are seen through it . The atmosphere , the f...

Domestic Affairs ( Edited by Mrs . ; Bertha Caswell Norton . ) Common Sense Shecame among the gathering crowd , A maiden fair wlthout . pretense , And-when they asked- her , humble name , She whispered mildly ; . Common Sense ; Her modest garb drew every eye , Her ample cloak , her shoes of leather ; Arid , wihen they sneered ; shesimply said , I dress according to the weather . fhey argued long , arid- reasoned loud , ¦ In dubious Hindoo , phrase ; mysterious , . While , she , popr , child , could not divine Wtoy girls so young should be so serious .- They knew the length of Plato s beard , And how the-scholars wrote-in ; Saturn ; • She studied authors not so deep ; • And took the Bible for , her pattern . And so she said , Excuse me , friends ; I find all have their proper places , And Common- Sense should stay at . home With cheerful hearts and smiling faces . —James Thomas Fields .

Teaching His Wife a Lesson [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Teaching His Wife a Lesson • My wife has a disagreeable habit of leaving her pocketbook in exposed places , said the man who was telling the story . I have cautioned her more than once that she would lose it if she wasnt more careful . I came down town with her the other morning , and the first thing she did after boarding the car was to deposit her purse on the car seat while she relieved herself of the terrible suspicion . that her hat wasnt on straight . A movement of her arms knocked the purse on- the floor where it remained until I . picked it up . _ I rescued that purse no less than a dozen times before we reached the bargain counter that was the goal of my wifes ambition . Events around a bargain counter occur with kaleidoscopic swiftness , and I soon found myself the sole guardian of my wife s purse , which lay before me on the counter where it had been deserted by her in a mad rush for the other end of the counter / To teach her a lesson I emptied the contents of the purse ...

FROM FOOT TO KNEE Ohio Woman Suffered Great Agony From a Terrible Sore—Her Story of the Case , and Her Cure . For many years I was afflicted with a milk leg , and a few years ago it broke out in a sore and spread from my foot to my knee . I . suffered great agony . It would burn and itch all the time and discharge a great deal . My health was good with the exception of this sore . I tried a great many kinds of salve , but some would irritate the sore so that I could hardly stand the pain . I could not go near the fire without suffering intensely . Some one sent me papers containing testimonials of cures bv Hood s Sarsaparilla , and I told my husband I would like to try this medicine . He got me a bottle and I found it helped me . I kept on taking- it until my limb was completely healed . I cannot praise Hood s Sarsaparilla enough for the great benefit it hns been to me . It cleanses the blood of all impurities and leaves it rich and pure . MRS . ANNA E . EAKEN , Whittlesey , Ohio . ...
