THE WHEAT SUPPY AND DEMAND [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

THE WHEAT SUPPY AND DEMAND The Commercial Graphic , of this city , takes issue with the Department of Agriculture on its estimate of the wheat crop of 1878 . The Department of Agriculture officially states the crop of 1878 at 420 , 122 ,- 400 bushels . The journal referred to accounts for the crop as follows : Bushels . Exported 150 , 502 . 506 Seetl 51 . 000 , 000 Surplus July 1 , 1878 . in excess of same time previous year 12 , 000 , 000 Consumed ( 4 . 78 bushels per capita of 47 , 000 , 000 population ) 887 , 050 , 000 Total 440 , 558 , 505 The seed wheat is estimated at li bushels per acre on an acreage of 34 , 000 , 000 , and the consumption at a trifle less than the usual estimate of five bushel per capita , and we are disposed to think that the Graphic s estimate is more nearly correct than that of the Department of Agriculture . The official figures for the crop of 1879 place it at 446 , 000 , 000 bushels . Should this estimate prove correct , the surplus available for expor...

SPECULATIONS ABOUT THE MESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

SPECULATIONS ABOUT THE MESSAGE The President s message lo Congress will be presented , as usual , on the 4 th day of this month . Thc newspaper correspondents in Washington have already set their wits to work to obtain advance information as to the nature of its tone and recommendations . Of course they really know little of the matter , but they conjecture a great deal , and being shrewd , intelligent fellows , entirely familiar with the questions of the tlay , and the sentiments of politicians and statesmen , they often guess pretty near the mark . We are told by one of these gentlemen that the message will be of about the usual length . This is important , of course , and it may be true . The Canadian fisheries and the Panama canal project will be treated upon . This is not at all improbable . Mr . Hayes will mildly reiterate his ideas of Congressional interference with the appointment business . Quite likely this may be so , and it is equally likely that he will not mention the ...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

INSURANCE ITEMS CO-OPERATIVE FIRE C OMPANIES , in the shape of county mutuals , are flooding the farming districts of Ohio . The Farmers Mutual Reporter comes to us filled with fulsome puffs of ihe system . But the plain facts with the varnish removed , are presented in two advertisements ; one is the annual exhibit of one of the concerns whose expenditures , almost wholly for expenses , amounted to about $ 1 . 50 per $ 1 , 000 for risks which had run an average of six months . The Glens Falls , which does much of the same kind of business , carried itB risks for a year according to its last annual report for less than $ 2 per $ 1 , 000 . So much for their boasted cheap management The policy-hold-ers in the latter company got contracts worth cash down in case of loss . Those in the former got the benefit of a notice like the following , which we find in the above sheet : To the members of tae Farmers Mutual Relief Association of Seneca . County . Ohio : There is an assessment made o...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

LITERARY THE CHRISTMAS BELLS . I heard the Bella on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play , And wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth , good will to men ! And thought how , as the day had come The belfries of all Christendom Bad rolled along The unbroken song Of peace on earth , good will to men I Till ringing , singing on its way . The World revolved from night to day , A voice , a chime , A chant sublime Of peace on earth , good will to men ! Then from each black , accursed throat The cannon thundered from the moat . And with the sound The carols drowned Of peace on earth , good will to men . It was as lf an earthquake rent The hearth-stones of a continent . And made forlorn The house-holds born Of peace on earth , good will to men . And in despair I bent my head ; There is no peace on earth , I said ; For hate is strong And mocks the song Of peace on earth , good will to men . Then pealed the bells more loud and deep : God is not dead : nor doth He sleep ! The ...

THE HOUSE AND THE BRAIN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

THE HOUSE AND THE BRAIN BY E . BULWER LYTTON . A . friend of mine , who is a man oi letters and a philosopher , said to me one day , as if between jest and earnest , Fancy ! since we last met I have discovered a haunted house in the midst of London . Really haunted ? and by what—ghosts ? Well , I cant answer these questions ; all I know is this : Six weeks ago I and rny wife were in search of a furnished apartment . Passing a quiet street , we saw on the window of one of the houses a bill , Apartments furnished . The situation suited us ; we entered the house , liked the rooms , engaged them by the week , and left them the third day . No power on earth could have reconciled my wife to stay longer ; and I dont wonder at it . What did you see ? Excuse me ; I have no desire to be ridiculed as a superstitious dreamer , nor , on the other hand , could I ask you to accept on my affirmation what you would hold to be incredible , without the evidence of your own senses . Let me only say thi...

A CHRISTMAS NIGHT'S ADVENTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

A CHRISTMAS NIGHTS ADVENTURE First I must tell you who I am and how I came to be in the Baysville bank in the wee sma hours , one dreary Christmas night some three years ago . My name , then , is Olive Hudson , and 1 was seventeen years old on that same December night , and so very small that Mrs . Knight s Dolly , who was not twelve , was half a head taller than myself . We were rich folks once , but father died and left us very poor . Mother struggled along in a weary , hand-to-hand fight with poverty till I was sixteen , and then died . She had rented two rooms of Mrs . Knight , a widow also , with two stalwart sons , an aged father , and two daughters . Alter mother died , I was adopted by the Knights , and although I was earning a support as music teacher in the Baysville Academy , I was like one of the family when I was in my good landlady s home . They were all in good positions , although by no means an aristocratic family . John , the oldest son , was in New York in a whole...

A CHRISTMAS GREETING TO OUR YOUNG FRIENDS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

A CHRISTMAS GREETING TO OUR YOUNG FRIENDS . It seems almost premature to send you a Christmas greeting already , does It not ? Yet , hard as it may be for us to realize it , ere many days are past another Christmas will have come and gone . Yes , and before you s * e another number of the FARMERS REVIEW , the old year , 1879 , will have passed away forever , and the New Year , 1880 , will have dawned upon us . Dear me , how time flies , and how the holidays do crowd upon each other at this time ! Why , there will be scarcely time for the little ones who made themselvessick by eating too many good things on Thanksgiving day , to get over the effects of their dissipation , before here comes Old Christmas , with his attendant train of jollity and feasting , merry-making and mince pies , pleasure and plum-pudding , and who can say how many small stomachs are unnaturally distended , on the Great Day , and painfully aching the day after . Then just one week more and New Year s Day brings ...
