Bird Houses and How to Build Them

Bird Houses and How to Build Them

Date: 1914
Creator: Dearborn, Ned, 1865-
Description: "A few years ago only four species were commonly regarded as house birds -- the house wren, the bluebird, the tree swallow, and the martin. Since the movement to protect birds and make neighbors of them began, however, their natures and needs have become better understood, and it is now known that many other species will avail themselves of houses constructed for them by their human friends. The practice of erecting bird houses in this country, while now nation-wide, is not so common and uniformly distributed as it should be, and more extended provisions of this nature can not fail to result in a largely increased number of house birds." -- p. 2

How to Select Foods: [Part] 1. What the Body Needs

Date: 1917
Creator: Hunt, Caroline Louisa, 1865-1927
Description: "This bulletin does not attempt to make definite suggestions for obtaining food at low cost or to recommend any special foods or combinations of foods. It tells very simply what the body needs to obtain from its food for building its tissues, keeping it in good working order, and providing it with fuel or energy for its muscular work. It shows in a general way how the different food materials meet these needs and groups them according to their uses in the body. It suggests that, by remembering these groups and having them all suitably represented in the daily diet, the housekeeper can easily plan attractive meals which meet the needs of her family without waste of money or material." -- p. 2

Creator: Hunt, Caroline Louisa, 1865-1927
Description: "The present bulletin deals with foods rich in starch and particularly with the cereals and foods made from them. These are mild-flavored, comparatively inexpensive foods which yield energy to the body. They also yield varying amounts of tissue-building and body-regulating substances. If they are combined with well-chosen materials from the other foods groups, they can be used safely as the main part of the ration. With wise planning such a diet can be made adequate, attractive, and at the same time economical." -- p. 2
