FOR YOUNG READERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 6 May 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS . LILY THE FAIR , AND THE BIG BROWN BEAR . A TALE FOR THE LITTLE AND GOOD . Once on a time there lived a prince Who had a castle grand , With gallant knight and pages bright , To round about him stand . Hed gold and gems , and diadems , And silver too to spare ; But he was sad and sorrowful And gray had grown his hair . For just when all was happiness And love , and joy , and pride ; A dreadful sorrow smote this prince—His faithf ul wife had died . She was his very all in all . More dear to him than pearl , But one sad day she passed away , And left one little girl . One little girl so white and soft , With eyes of tender blue , And hair as golden as the corn , And teeth of pearly hue ; Her smile was like the Bunny light That spreads at early morn , And ne er was seen a sweeter mien Than Lily did adorn . For Lily did her father call This little princess fair ; She was his only pleasure , now , In his sad life of care ; He loved her for her mother s sake , And watch...

THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 6 May 1880

THE HOME . TO MY CANARY . Half Nature and half Art art thou , Poor city bird ; Thy birth was not on woodland bough With zephyrs stirred . A little box upon a nail Thy life received ; And I , when others care did fall , Thy wants relieved . The melody that rippling breaks From thy clear throat Was not thine own—tlie skylark makes That merry note . The greater world without thine own Is dark to thee ; Thy golden wings have never known Its mystery . The sun on thee , through cloudless sky , Did never smile ; Dull bricks and mortar have been thy Canary Isle . But if for freedom thou dost sigh , My captive pet , Ill loose thy wings , and help thee fly This cage of fret . Aud then thy airy soul upflung Toward heaven s gate , Will sing tbe song , as yet unsung Eiuaucipate ! Say , wilt thou fly the spreading air At thy sweet will , And never more in captive s fare Dip thy free bill ? If so , just chirp one last farewell , Aud hie thee hence . And leave me , till passed time dispel This pres...

MAY DAY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 6 May 1880

MAY DAY . The May Day ofthe olden times , with its May Queen and May Pole , and numerous quaint customs , seems to have left nothing behind it but pleasant recollections , and yet neither in Europe nor in this country is its revival at all likely . Its joyous customs prevailed more in England than in any other country doubtless , because in that climate , more perhaps than in any other , does the first day of May speak so eloquently of the final disappearance ot hoary Winter and its frosts , snows and fogs , and we presume that in that country , there may be seen even to this day many such sights as that in our illustration , where the village boys and girls having ^ ¦ h ^ aan tholr O IIPPTI hfl . vp . nrnwned her ¦ . x ^ , .. ~ v— , —— - with flowers and are now dancing merrily around her , a ring of joyous and loyal subjects . One can hardly help giving vent to a sigh of regret in comparing the May Day of our ancestors with the weary house-keepers first of May of these modern time...

MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 6 May 1880

MISCELLANEOUS . HOW UNCLE SAM REDEEMS MUTILATED CURRENCY . Whenever any one through the accidents or carelessness of mankind , or his wife , or his cow or hog , or in any other way , comes into possession of mutilated currency , he sends it to the Treasurer of the United States for redemption . He also usually tells the story of his wrongs or his misfortunes to excite the official s sympathy and to get good bills in return . This engenders a sort of literature , which if collected would make an interesting and curious volume . Before giving a few notes from it , it will be told how this sort of tattered and torn currency is redeemed . It goes to the Redemption Bureau of the Treasury , and in case it is a legal tender note and the numbers and denomination are distinguishable , and satisfactory evidence is furnished that the other portion will never be presented , a new note is issued to the owner of the fragments . If a national bank note , the name of the bank must still cling to it...

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

AGRICULTURAL . : PROFITS OF A SMALL FARM . A neighbor of mine , residing within six miles of this city , became disgusted with the idea of cultivating 160 acres , and making a living on that small farm , so he sold out and moved on to one of the unbounded prairies of Central Iowa , bought and took up a sect ion of laud , and saw his way clear to an independent fortune in five years at most . He broke up and put in of small grain 400 acres , the rest in corn , hired lots of help , invested largely in labor-saving machinery . Not having much money , he had to go deeply in debt , but twenty bushels an acre of wheat would bring him right out , and leave a little surplus . Every thing looked favorable until the wheat headed out , then heavy storms laid it down , chinch bugs shriveled it , and scalding heat destroyed it ; result eight bushels of poor wheat per acre , worth fifty-five cents ; corn , a fair crop but worth only fourteen cents , and eight miles to market . Nothing discouraged...

THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

THE POULTRY YARD . DESTRUCTION OF VERMIN IN POULTRY . The following interesting remarks on the above subject are from the pen of M . Lecouteux , the talented editor of a French contemporary : One of the chief causes of the frequent failure of those who attempt to rear young chickens is , that so few people attach sufficient importance to the desirability of keeping them free from vermin . Scarcely any fowls are entirely free from these parasites . Artificial mothers , even , can not be kept entirely free from these dangerous enemies , although the lice found upon chickens hatched in an incubator are not to be compared with those that infest birds hatched and reared underthe wing of their mother . The louse that I have found in chickens that have been kept free from all contagion is a comparatively large one . It is said that their appearance is spontaneous . They are usually found in the head , and in groups of six or eight , for a solitary one is rarely met with . They are easily s...
