The Thursday quote

‘‘Newspapers of that era frequently ran stories with a focus on household management that helped readers cope with the hardships faced in a developing country. They offered advice on any number of topics. Beer and brewing-related articles were as routine as columns with hints on how to keep bears out of the garden and which moss was best to seal cabin walls.’’
