Knitted for Civil War Heroes.
Knitting and making hospital sup
plies for our soldier boys is nothing
new for Mrs. W. P. Harford, ven
erated Omaha clubwoman. Mrs.-Harford
performed such service during
civil war, times. It was in her girl
hood that she scraped lint and raveled
homespun linen for hospital supplies
and learned to knit so deftly that
the accomplishment can now be put
to good service.
Mrs. Harford, who was formerly
president of the Omaha Woman'?
club anl also, heade the Young
Woman's Christian association, as
well as many church societies, and
distinguished as a parliamentarian,
responded to another call for war
'At her summer home on Madeline
Island, Lake Superior, from which'
she was unexpectedly called home by
business, Mrs. Harford has been
reaping the harvest of her war gar
den. She and her daughter went
north in May and planted seventeen
different kinds of vegetables and fruit
in soil never before tilled. The land
was cleared since they took it over.
Mrs. Harford proudly planted flags
in' front, indicating her patriotism.
Now. that she is home. Mrs. Har
ford is ready to do her bit in knitting
tor the Red Cross society. She would
just as soon knit as eat, members of
her family state.
