HOW WOOD FARMERS SAVE M0XE1 [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 27 November 1868

HOW WOOD FARMERS SAVE M0XE1 They take good papers, and read them. They keep accounts of farm operations. They do not leaA'e their implements scattered OAer the farm, exposed to rain, snoiv, or heat. They repair their tools and buildings at the proper time, and do not stiller a subsequent three-fold expenditure, of time and nuniey. They use their money judiciously, and do not attend auction-sales to purchase •all kinds of trumpery because it is "cheap." They seei that their fences arc Avell repaired, and their cattle are not found grazing in the meadows, or grain-fields, or orchards. They do not refuse to make experiments in a small Avay of many IICAV things. They plant fruit-trees AA'ell, care for them, and of course get good crops. They practice economy by giving their stock good shelter during the Avinter, also good food, taking out all that is unsound, half-rotten, or mouldy. They do not keep tribes of cats and snarling clogs around their promises, AVIIO eat up more in a mo...

HENRY WARP BEECHEB ON POLITICAL CORRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 4 December 1868

HENRY WARP BEECHEB ON POLITICAL CORRUPTION. Hundreds of people went away from Plymouth Church, New York, on Sunday evening, unable to get inside of the house. " Abhor that which is evil," was Mr. Beecher's text. He said that there was a growing tendency among church members and others to allow wickedness to grow and nourish from a mistaken idea that every man should attend to his own business. Others compromised with their consciences until they became indifferent as to whether the guilty were brought to justice or not. New York has nearly as many churches as dens of infamy, yet the pulpits of that city allowed all kinds of corruption to grow within its borders until it is second only to Sodom and Gomorrah. Business men who stand high in the church, set examples before their clerks that ought to make every honest man abhor them from the bottom of his heart. Ministers are supposed to be the mouth pieces of God, yet they grow fat in the service of the Devil by keeping silent whe...

¦ _ jfotya. MEMORY'S IDYL. BY AUGUST BELL. The low brown house, I see it now ; Grandmother, with her knitting, A holy calm upon her brow, In shaded porch was sitting. AH down the path the poppies flamed, Stiff box made green the border, And small blue violets, half ashamed, Grew low in sweet disorder. I had been reading on the porch, Aloud, in Revelation; It seemed like Sunday, and like church, With two for congregation. The birds called loud from ash and fir—I could not be unheeding; I plucked a sprig of lavender, To keep the place in reading. I wandered down by balm and rue, And clumps of china-aster; I thought—well, Jack, I thought of you, With heart-beats somewhat faster. Do you remember how the vine Grew close o'er all the arbor? It was a favorite haunt of mine, A dear, secluded harbor. So in I strolled. And there you were, In all a dreamer's glory ! Ah, yon remember ? Tell it, sir ! Ay, dear, you end the story. So Jack, no longer boyish dreamer,. Jack Took up the parable...

ptoltoww Written for FATHER ABRAHAM. PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE. PART IV. The Creator of all things has bountifully provided for every past, present and future want of the human family. Yet we have reason to believe that some of the means now employed to supply our wants will be exhausted in the course of time. For instance, the immense consumption of wood in this country, notwithstanding its great abundance in many States and Territories, is a matter for serious reflection. The march of civilization and improvement is so rapid, that, within another half a century, many of our most extensive forests will have entirely disappeared, and their places will be occupied toy cities, towns and cultivated fields. If so, a substitute for wood must, in the nature of things, be forthcoming. Our coal fields are said to be inexhaustable, but, for one, I do not think so. Those of England, it is asserted, are likely to become exhausted before very long, and should this be the case, it is highly...
