Written for The Western Sural . IS IT WORTH WHILE ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 20 June 1868
Written for The Western Sural . IS IT WORTH WHILE ? . . . BY . - ; - • I wonder If It s worth while ? . So queried a yonnp ; man , as he sat absorbed in deep thought . He was trying to &lt; decide whether , in view of his being a farmer , it would be profitable for him to obtain a thorough education . He knew of farmers who could scarcely read and write ; none who professed more than a common education , yet many were good farmers , in prosperous circumstances , and apparently contented- and happy ; and then he had so often heard tbe idea of a farmer having knowledge scoffed at as a thing incompatible with his vocation . Thus he reasoned with himself . He loved the life of a farmer ; to t him it did not seem drudgery to till the rich fields , and he was impatient to enter npon the work . Tet he was ambitious , and wished to honor his profession , and if this was to be . dene better by an education than : otherwise , why he had both the means and incllnatibn to procure It . L...

He says that he has seen so many charges preferred against his old friend the hawthorn , that he feels inclined to say a word or two on Its behalf . He was forty-six : years old when he left England , twenty five of which he spent among the hedges . He has planted , plashed , and trimmed hedges as much as any man and he ought to know something on the subject on which he Writes . One of the first things he wanted when he came to Canada was a hedge , and having seen some plants of hawthorn In the bush he took up some of them and planted them around his garden , This was seven or eight years 820 . The plants have done well , as any one may see who visits his farm . He says that ,, the -. usual objections to the hawthorn as a hedge plant , namely , that mice destroy It , that It Is Infested by wood-lice and that It does not...

Last year I lost quite a valuable horse by bleeding at tbe nose and I would like very much to learn the specific •cause , as I have heard of two similar cases not satisfactorily accounted for . I had noticed previously traces of my horse slightly bleeding , but thought little of it .

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 27 June 1868
HORTICULTURAL Fruit Prospects . After , all the reports concerning the 6 estrnctlon of the peach buds and blossoms by frost , it appears that they have escaped injury in most places , and that a fair crop will be the result . Iu the great peachgrowing districts there will be a fair crop , and the growers arc taking time by the forelock in their preparations for marketing the fruit , millions of baskets being required for this purpose . The strawberry crop of Southern Illinois was a very short one this year , the , blooms being injured by late frost , but In places where the p lants were not In bloom at the time of . tbe frost , there have been and will be good crops . The late heavy rains have done some damage to strawberries in low ground , but : wherever there was proper drainage or a good fall for the surface water to run , off , the plants have escaped injury and promise well . • The . apple crop will not be abundant this year , for although there was a good show of blossoms , t...

§ omt » tk ( Bxommi Edited by ¦ Prmetto-I Homckopr . ¦ ; JR High-Heeled Shoes . I Ladles , do you remember how hard it was for you to become accustomed to wearing high-heeled shoes—how they threw you forward , squeezing your poor toes down to the extreme ends of your shoes , making them ache horribly , and ensuring you a good crop of corns ? Dont you remember that , after you had worn them an hour or two , the cords of your legs felt as though they were stretched to their utmost tension , and there was such a trembling weakness in the small of your back you could hardly stand —that there was a falntness felt , a sort of an all-goneness at the pit of the stomach , and , last , but not least , a racking headache ? Did you attribute all these most distressing symptoms to the wearing of high . heeled shoes ? I dare affirm you did not . These symptoms wore off after a while ; yon become accustomed to the shoes , and now they don t hurt you at all . They dont ? You are greatly mistaken , ...

Agrioultoral Societies . ' [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 27 June 1868
Agrioultoral Societies . From a valuable article by Hon ; SANFOBD HOWARD , iu his report as Secretary of Michigan Board of Agrlculture we take the following historical facts concerning Agricultural Societies : The formation of agricultural societies , now so . numerous in this and other countries , belongs chiefly to this century , though their origin-dates farther back : In Great Britlan , the Highland Society of Scotland , the oldest in the kingdom , was formed iu 1780 . Sdme bmalt associations of similar cnaracter may have existed on the continent of Europe at the same time . In our own country , the first steps towards such organizations were taken shortly after the close of the war of the revolution . Several gentlemen who had occupied prominent military and other positions during that contest , on returning again to agricultural pursuits , and seeing the low condition into which agriculture had fallen during the long period when tbe mental and physical energies of the people h...

; i New York State Fair . The following notice from the Journal of the .

•--. * . * . * . , Fruit and Flower Show . ! We go to piess tdo eariy to give ariy account of the Fruit and Flower Exhibition of the Cook County Agricultural and Horticultural Society , announced to be held on Thursday of the present week . .

Mr . EMEBY , of the Prairie Farmer , Is Secretary of the Society , and it is a little singular that while the first official information that the time had been fixed for the exhibition , was received by us on Monday of this week , the Prairie Farmer of last week contained the announcement—too late , of course , for us to copy it in our issue of the same date .
