I love to browse through hundred-year-old magazines. Sometimes I just need to smile. Today, is one of those days.
Here is an important “warning” in the March, 1915 issue of Farm Journal.
Warning Notice to Girls
It is time to put a stop to that silly, dangerous practice some girls have of writing their names and addresses upon eggs and packages of produce sent out from their home farms.
I once overheard a well-known man-about-town, whose character is not what it should be, boast to a circle of men friends that, in connection with the boiled eggs served him for breakfast, there was the name and address of a girl he hoped would prove a rustic beauty; and that he had already begun a correspondence with her.
Now is not this a situation to make all decent, respectable persons sit up and take notice?
