b.                  3
c.                   10
d.                  6
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Making hats
The following about Lydia Knight Young: For seven years, Lydia lived in Orderville (1860s to 1870s), where she had charge of the millinery department. The straw for braiding the hats was better if selected when the wheat was in the milk stage, just before it ripened. Because the wheat was not good for making flour at this stage, a small patch was often planted for the main purpose of making hats. The heads that were cut from the straw were then used for chicken feed. At this stage of growth, the straw was pliable and soft and was more easily braided than when allowed to dry.
