Thought I should share this gem of a reference book.

I wouldn't recommend the old way of making ice.

Beekeeping has changed considerably too.

Sometimes though ... especially for permie type folks ... the old ways are the best.

Enjoy.

Old books are one of my primary targets when I go junk stores.   Of course, just because an older book makes a claim doesn't mean it is factual. I have found numerous tonics with mercury as an ingredient.  Maybe they work, but I'm not trying them.
