-Household Companion: Home Decorations
Every woman should desire her house to be as comfortable and as beautiful as her taste and means will permit. This department will be welcomed joyfully by every housewife. It shows how to make common things serve a double purpose of decoration as well as usefulness, with very little expenditure either of time or money. There are here also instructions for decorating the house suitably for various occasions, directions for doing fancy work of various kinds in leisure hours, and taking care of pet animals, plants, etc., in the house.
-Household Companion: The Practical Mechanic
Mending broken furniture, windows, brick or stone work, plumbing, painting, wall paper, and the thousands of things about a house which are liable to get out of order, means money in pocket if you can do it without having to call in a high-priced mechanic. There are many men who could employ evenings in making handsome and durable pieces of furniture, and at the end of the year find themselves richer and more comfortable for it.
-Clay Glazes and Enamels | by Henry R. Griffen
The subject of the manufacture of glazed brick and sanitary ware has been treated more by English writers from an English standpoint than it has by American writers. The clays of our country are so little known to-day, in respect to their adaptability to this purpose, and the majority of them are so different from the English clays in use, that English experience and receipts are hardly applicable to our purposes. We have no clay or class of clays that are known to be specially adapted to the manufacture of these goods, and, in consequence, we cannot have cut and dried rules for their production. The treatment given each clay must depend upon its various characteristics, and must vary therewith. As our experience becomes greater we may develop a clay or class of clays that are specially adapted to the business, and may be able to agree upon a best method of handling them. Until that time, each individual must do the best he can, and use such methods and schemes as he finds best adapted to the clays with which he has to deal.
