Heloise's Hints

This was one of my favorite columns when I was growing up. I read her and Dear Abbly faithfully in the old Argus, as we knew it then, with a Roundup and recipes and society section everyday. Here is a letter written to her which is in public domain, and also some public domain photos. I am also including some varieties of the black flowers we love so much.
Hints From Heloise: A life made easier Text Size PrintE-mailReprintsBy Heloise, Published: December 30King Dear Heloise: It was such a tremendous pleasure meeting the woman who has been so quietly influential in my life. (Readers: I was doing two seminars at a women’s conference in Austin. Sireesha was at one of them. — Heloise) Because of you, my mother, who immigrated to the United States 40 years ago, learned ALL THE TRICKS of traditional American households. Let me explain.
Moving here was no easy task for my mother, Raju, who left all the comforts of home and her own “mother’s tips” to embark on a journey from India to this land, half a world away. She did not grow up using some of the commonly used household items and was unaware of many things that American families had generationally passed down. It wasn’t until she came across her new friend Heloise’s column that she began to feel just a little closer to making this home.
