INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

INDUSTRY Industry is the gift of tongues that makes a man valued and understood in all lands , the philosopher s stone that turns all motals into gold . Through industry the mud huts of the Tiber were transformed into the palaces of the Osesars ; and the lone fisherman that cast his willow net in the muddy Thames , when the world was new , did not dream that millions of hands , guided by industry and brain , would make a river filled with ten thousand masts overlooked by the queen city of the world . Under patient toil the stone turns to bread , and when want or lean hunger looks in at the workingman s door , it sighs and passes on . All tho great results of the age are the effects of well-directed industry . Success does not always depend on intellectual capacity . Socrates confounded all the philosophers , but his wife turned into a shrew because of his lack to provide the common necessities of life . Diogenes , a philosopher , lived in a tub . Dryden , though he had the most mast...

GRIT . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

GRIT . It is the grit , the tenacity of purpose , the stubborn perseverance , that wins the battle of life , whether in the fields , in the mart or in the mine . In business it is that indomitable quality which acquires and retains fortunes . The ruin which overtakes thousands of merchants is not due to a lack of business talent , but a lack of business nerve , or grit . Many lovable persons in trade are cursed with yielding dispositions , resolute in no business habits , fixed in no business principles , prone to follow the instinct of weak good nature , against the ominous warnings of their better judgment ; now obliging some friend by taking an interest in some speculation , and whose capital , the long labor of years , is sunk in some benevolent attempt to assist blundering or plundering incapacity . In contrast to the panic smitten , compare the grit-inspired . The hard-willed man shows the grain of his character . He throws down his gauntlet to despair , accepts his fighting c...

THE LANGUAGE OF SOME AUTHORS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

THE LANGUAGE OF SOME AUTHORS . Some authors are mute before their fellow men . Their words are hike golden ingots , which in the privacy of home they could convert into coin bearing a stamp that would insure currency all over the world ; but if taken on the spur of the moment , they could not produce the farthings current in the market place . La Fontaine appeared heavy , coarse and stupid ; he could not speak and describe what he had just seen ; but then he was the model of poetry . Chaucer s silence was more agreeable than his conversation . Dryden s conversation was slow and dull ; his humor saturnine and reserved . Ben Jonson used to sit silent in company and suck his wine . Scmthey was stiff , sedate and wrapped up in asceticism . Tasso s conversation was neither gay nor brilliant . Dante was either taciturn or satirical . Grey seldom talked or smiled . Hogarth and Swift were absent minded in company . Milton was very unsociable and irritable when pressed into conversation . Ma...

GERMANY ' S "WAR AGAINST OUR PORK . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

GERMANY S WAR AGAINST OUR PORK . It is safe for Germany to place her embargo on American pork as long as we submit to it . French , German , English and American chemists , and other scientists have demonstrated that there is no difference except in our favor between our pork and that produced in Germany . The conditions and qualifications being nearly alike , the claim of disease has been used as a pretext for placiag a tariff on the American article , in order that a home market may be created for her own . Germany fears the superiority of our methods of curing and packing , and the great care exercised here in breeding the hog for certain points of exccllcncp has created a demand for the unsurpassed quality of American pork . Deep sounding of the matter would reveal such as the secret of opposition . Despite the precautions of the Chancellor the Germans have a partiality for American pork , and its importation into that country is the death knell of the German pork industry . ¦ A...

"WIT AND HUMOR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

WIT AND HUMOR . Humor is founded on the social qualities and is always kind . There is always an abundance of vital power and social virtues in our humorists . They are rich with the milk of human kindness , and ready to laugh but never to cry . Wit is based on the mentality more than on the heart . It is deeper , sharper , careless where it falls . The wit wants to see the lightning , it matters not how or where it strikes . Wit lacks animality , sociabil-y , the rich wine of warm spirits . Humor makes us happy , like a hand-shake of spirits , while wit is an electric spark , full of beautiful fire . BOOK REVIEW , ROBEBTS BROS ., Boston , have been issuing for some time beautifully illust luted poems , the favorites of the people , by favorite authors .

AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY . BY P . H . JACOBS . HOW TO USE FEKinjIZERS . There is an art in using fertilizers as well as in preparing them . The value of a fertilizer to the farmer is not what it contains intrinsically , but what it will itocoruplish in his possession . Land rich in potash is not benefited by an application of that substance , and the same may be stated of phosphates and nitrogenous materials . But , as it is an impossibility to estimate proportionately for all , a few points in relation to the use of those most familiar to us , especially as the season is about to open , may probably be acceptable . Fertilizers composed principally of phosphates are usually harmless to seeds and young plants , and may be applied either in the hill or broadcast . Such fertilizers , however , -when used in the hills on grass-feeding plants , such as corn or cabbage , answer well for giving au early start , but better results will be derived later in the suason if the fertilizer is evenl...

oUR HEAVY DRAFT HORSES . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

oUR HEAVY DRAFT HORSES . -Twenty years ago the lieavy draft horse was bred by chance . There were then a few importations of the . best Clydesdales that could bo secured , but the farmers ns a class did not patronize th . m , and the progress of improvement _ T »_ . nC Prlnx-, P-3 _ 3 rtj- of V-. M . Fields , Cedar Falls , la . was not as rapid as it should have been . As agriculture was made to keep pace with the march of invention the realization of the fact that heavier horses must be used , and that it -was not economical to bear the expense of three instead of two , with the same production . The demand for better stockj created prices that induced further importations and the ordinary animals are fast disappearing in order to be superseded by those of a better class . Our breeders have been alive to this desire , and every portion of the regions of England , Scotland and France devoted to the raising of horses has been searched in order to secure the finest and most perfect Cl...

WASHING VS . WORKING BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

WASHING VS . WORKING BUTTER BV 0 . W . E . Equally good results can be obtained by washing or working the milk from the butter , when skillfully done under favorable circumstances . In either case the only object is to free the butter from the milk , with as little injury to the flavor or grain of the butter ns possible . In washing butter , the danger is mostly in injuring the flavor by introducing foreign matter in the water , while in the other case , there is more danger in overworking and so injuring the grain . In localities where pure water cannot be obtained washing should not be resorted to , for butter is always sure to take up the impurities contained , as it will taint of any decaying vegetable or animal matter that may be near . Many wells and springs which are thought to be pure and good have in them decaying substances which render them entirely unfit for any use , much less to wash butter with . Decaying organic matter so introduced into butter acts very much like ye...

GARDEN AND ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884

GARDEN AND ORCHARD EARLY PEAS . Peas are very hardy , and can endure tho frost some . They are not a summer crop , like beans , but should go in as soon as the weather begins to open warm . For the early crops tho dwarf varieties are best , but they should bo sown in succession , as they usually ripen nearly all their pods at tho same time . The tall varieties are the best flavored and yield better , but require sticking . March is rather soon for peas , as the ground is too cold for the seed , but it is well to get tho seed assorted , the sticks cut , and tho ground selected , for some of our readers will have a good opportunity to put in their peas in a few weeks more . POTATO SEED . A Pennsylvania farmer took the smallest pot-toes he could find and planted them with fair results . He then selected the smallest from the smallest the next year , and planted them and obtained about double the quantity planted . The third year he ran the experiment into the ground and left it there ;...
