Bertha a journal by the author of letters to berth a written for the Fannery a wife. \ a july 5th. Such a terrible thing happened yesterday. Just a Block below the House is the River Bank and Here the boys brought some powder in a Keg and a Small Cannon and some firecrackers. A burning Cracker fell in the Keg fortunately the powder was nearly gone or it might have been worse. A slight explosion brought me to the door just in time to see two boys ablaze. One with marvelous presence of mind ran Down the Bank into the water but the other ran screaming Down the Street until a Man caught him and extinguished the flames. The poor boy died to terrible agony this Forenoon. His people Are very ignorant foreigners but the sympathy of the whole town is with them. This should be a lesson to All. Under the name and Guise of patriotism Many such dreadful experiences Are made possible every fourth of july. Edwin and Roy voluntarily promised not to have anything to do with such dangerous pastimes. July 20th. Frank is not Well and the doctor orders him out West so in be persuaded him to go to Lake Side and so meet Maude and her family. How i wish t could go with him. But that is impossible for Many reasons. I can hardly make up my mind to let him go but his nervous system is All run Down after a year of extra hard school work. Frank is talking of taking Edwin Witolf him for company. I think this will be a Good plan As Edwin is not very Strong and a change of climate May be As beneficial for him As for Frank. July 29th. Well in my a poor Lone wid Der Quot As one of my neighbors told me this morning. There in a sorry i wrote that i do not approve of such expressions and it jarred on me this morning when i first heard it what if it were True a Cutten i find myself using expressions which in be criticized in others. People Are Ever prone to follow a Leader even if we do not approve of the actions we follow. It is so difficult to do and say just what we know is right and proper when we constantly see and hear the opposite All about us. As Edwin said once when i reproved him for using a Slang expression a How can i help it when everyone else says it Quot How careful we should he of the influence going out from our daily words and actions yet How few realize the influence thus exerted. I suppose Edwin and Frank Are at . This time. be away a month in the meantime we must get used to being Learned to milk before they went so we Are Independent of outside help. Little Roy says he is a papa he feels very important now As Frank told him to a take care of Mamma and August .15. Hal the time is past. Frequent word Homes from our travellers for such the it Are. They remained at Lakeside but one week. The fishing was poor and after Riding about Over the country with Maude a husband Frank thought it better to move on a Maude and her husband Are very Busy people Quot he wrote a and i do not wish to impose upon their Good these two weeks have seemed longer than two months Ever did before. People have been very kind coming in Here and inviting us out to dinner or supper yet life seems so unreal. I never knew before that the presence or absence of one person could so change ones entire Outlook on life. Yet this feeling proves to me that i decided rightly and that love in a cottage is not a fanciful dream never realized in real life. Indeed from observing the lives of those around me i am convinced that those who have the least of this world s goods Are the ones who get the most enjoyment out of life and Are also the ones to go to for help and Comfort. Do riches i wonder make people selfish and unresponsive to the needs of others and is it because poor people know so Well How far a Little can be made to go and How much it May mean that they Are so ready to give their a mite Quot we have a neighbor a poor woman who is always so ready to do a kindness that it often makes me feel conscience stricken. For instance Edith had trouble carrying water for Blossom so mrs. Penny called to her to Lead the cow Over to her Well and when the cow tipped the pail Over time after time she sacral. Fixed her tub of rain water that Edith might use the tub when i thanked her the next Day she exclaimed. A Shure May am and that a not much to do for a Naybor woman a but it s just such jit tie things which will make her a pleasant memory to me. 1 our Rich neighbor just across tha Street has the name of being very Dis obliging. He says the people a impose Quot upon him and i am told he is not Friendly with anyone on the Street. 1 have been very careful to keep the children on their own Side of the Street Ever since he returned this Spring. His wife is very neat painfully so. We have exchanged Calls several times but while there i always feels if she was just waiting for me to go that she might clean up any dust or dirt i might have brought in. The children feel so sorry for her Little grandson Walter who lives with them. Even in his play he must not Dis arrange anything arid a bit of litter either indoors or out Calls Forth a severe rebuke. Although he is not an agreeable boy we often Overlook a Good Deal from him because we feel sorry for his restrained life at Home a a its a a Walter done to soil the. Paint Quot a Waite done to track on the walks Quot or a Walter done to drop anything on the Lawn Quot till our Edwin exclaimed a anyone would think his name was a waiter Pont a his grandma says it so August 20th. I sometimes wonder if real mothers feel More responsibility for the Little ones born to them than do i. Who have assumed the responsibility of motherhood. Sometimes the question of just How much to allow How much to rebuke or to Overlook seems a serious one. Just where is the Golden mean Between the two extremes August 23rd. The Garden is repaying us for All the Worl lavished upon it. Flowers fruits and vegetables galore the children Load their Little Wagon every morning and go through town and usually dispose of All they take. Most of the men Here Are Railroad employees and so have no gardens of their own. I never saw people More free with Money As Long As it lasts but most of them live ahead of their next months pay. I often wonder Why some enterprising Farmers wife does not embrace the Opportunity offered for making some spending Money anyone who would sell eggs butter and Garden produce from House to House could have As Many regular customers As she could wish. Another demand is for dutch cheese. I have six customers whom Edith serves a once a a week and others who buy now and then. I work it Well add seasoning and make into balls which sell three for a dime. I use t i Jabuiel st of Whita napkins a nil let pretty slip to Kkt la a bind people Mem in giant to .all1 \ 4cap provide. One a lady Sam she would a rather have a Ball of a my a by use to and can a Toh Erst a uld i am sure be glad to have these farm dainties for their tables if one could Supply them. August 2cth, Edith has been learning to bake bread. I was determined she should not be ignorant of this useful accomplishment. She is remarkably successful with whatever she undertakes in the Way of cooking. She can Cook an entire meal As Well As Many women. She is planning a Surprise for her father when he returns a meal composed of his favorite dishes All cooked by herself. Possibly she May serve it on his birthday which will occur next month. August 29th. Another. Day and they will be Here. Frank writes that the West a agrees Quot with him. He likes the free ways and enterprising spirit of those who have taken Horace Greeley a advice to a go West and grow up with the he says we will a hardly recognize Edwin a lie is so Hearty and his White Cheeks Are As Rosy As roys Ever were. They went much farther West than where Maude lives Frank wanted to study the resources of the country and find out for himself How they live on the Western ranches. He is very much enthused or so i judge from his letters. He asks How i would enjoy life on a Homestead a ten Miles from a i have often envied the Freedom and Independence of Farmers wives but i should not like to he isolated from All society. I have read too of the dangers and hardships of Pioneer life but in a sure Flint Frank was joking. I think i would enjoy life on a farm if i could be near neighbors and be pleasantly situated for i too fell in love with the free Western ways during my memorable visit to Lakeside. Maude would i am sure be delighted if we settled near her Home but Here in a allowing my fancy free run. We shall very Likely stay right Here for years. Items of interest. A Small boy threw a Rock and hit Jeremiah Plowden of Cleveland on the Boulevard last thursday when a Man has a bruised Boulevard he is Apt to suffer for several weeks. While William i ii Nule of pea Sboro tenn., was putting a shirt Over his Bead last sunday prior to going to Church a pet dog belonging to the family rushed in and bit him eight times Between the Chiff Onier and the front Hall. A women can get along on a very Small income if it is larger than her neighbors never believe a Many a own Story of How Brave be was. Brave people Are always modest
