(Prepared by the United State* Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The cost of constructing a refrig
erator or an ice chest is small in com
parison with economic returns and the
comfort they offer the farmer. They
are even of greater Importance in the
country than in the city, although
many of our rural population do not
avail themselves of the opportunity to
enjoy the luxury of ice.
The United States department of ag
riculture In a farmer's bulletin (No.
475) on "Ice Houses" outlines the
manner of construction of a farm re
frigerator large enough to meet the
requirements of a well-equipped farm
for the storage of butter, eggs ami
fresh meats and for chilling fruit in
small quantities.
This refrigerator can be constructed
in a cellar, in the lean-to of an ice
house, or In any other farm building
where convenient and suitable protec
tion can be provided. If none of these
alternatives Is possible the refrigera
tor may be constructed as an Inde
pendent building. If built as a sepa
rate structure the same care in the
choice of a site should be exercised as
In choosing the location of an icehouee.
The construction is shown In detail
in Fig. 1. The essential feature is a
well-insulated room containing an ice
rack, drip pan and drain. This refrig
erator is 8 by 10 feet and has a floor
space 6 by 8 feet available for the
storage of produce.
Such an arrangement will require
about 100 tons of ice during the year,
but it can be used to hold eggs and
butter over the season of abundant
production. A supply of fresh meat
can be kept by such means in locali
ties where distributing wagons are
not run. and even where a local sup
ply is available the producer can ar
range to supply his table at wholesale
rather than retail prices by killing his
own sheep, pigs or veai. Instances are
known wtfere an equipment of this
sort has paid for Itself in a single
season through the advance secured
by holding the egg output for only 60
days.

the necessary supply for a farm can
be secured at small cost in a few
days, the time depending, of course,
upon the weather conditions and the
number of cans in operation. If the
cans are carefully handled tjiey

VEN the poor child of today ha*
more In his Christmas stocking
than the prosperous child
dreamed of In the first century
of white occupation of this coun
try. Blase boys and girls who
can hardly think of anything new
for which to ask the generous
saint can hardly conceive of the
bareness of those early Christ
mas holidays.
In Massachusetts it was the worst of all. for
keeping Christmas was denounced as a pernicious
custom, and any child daring to think of as much
as a plum pudding on that day would make him
self liable to reproof by the authorities. All along
the stern and rockbound coast the only Christmas
trees in the days of the Puritan domination were
those that nature had planted there and bad
adorned In December with fleecy snow. The fires
burned brightly on the open hearths, but there
was no invitation to the good saint to descend the
chimney when the embers had burned low. As
far as the children knew, Christmas was Just like
any other day in the calendar. Even after the
Puritan reaction against the forms and customs
of the old church had spent Itself to some extent
the children of the seventeenth century still ex
pected no gifts In honor of the birthday of Christ.
In New Amsterdam the outlook was a little bet
ter for the children. The Hollanders had brought
with them their St. Nicholas, and his birthday
was celebrated Joyously by young and old Just
before Christmas, but this day was kept, too, by
the Protestant Dutch as heartily as by any Catho
lics. Of course, they had not many real toys as
we know them today, but in the shoes that the lit
tle Hollanders set by the fireplace In the shining
kitchen, which was also the liviug room, were
home-made sweets and cakes and home-made
gifts. Many of these were of a useful character,
such as hand-knit caps and mittens, but now and
then a skillful Hollander would carve a model of
a boat such as that which had brought them to
New Amsterdam or a miniature chest of drawers,
and one can fancy the recipients showing these
with pride to the wondering little Indian boys
and girls when they came to be on terms of suf

fleient amity with them tor such conferences.
In Virginia, where the Church of England waa
strong and Its adherents steadfastly observed the
holidays as In the home country, there was al
ways more of the Christmas spirit and abuudant
cheer and merrymaking than elsewhere at this
season. Here the Yule log held Its place and
here were the games and the feasting that made
It indeed the merry season of the year. Later
when New Amsterdam became New York and
the English came Into power the character of the
Christmas holiday was changed again somewhat,
although the Dutch Influence continued dominant
for many years.
Owing to the large number of German* In Penn
sylvania Christmas there partook largely of the
nature of the festival In the fatherland. It was
largely a family affair. The children for months
before the day of the Nativity saved their pennies
and bought material from which they fashioned
their gifts for their parents and for one another.
These were presented on Christmas eve. and the
next day the parents In turn spread out their pres
ents for the children on a large table in the best
room. Stockings were hung, too, and the good
children bad them filled with sweetmeats, pepper
cakes and other goodies, but those who had been
bad sometimes found a birch rod as a Christmas

w|th f „ at , error to children. One Knecht Rupert
