THE JAMESON CLUB [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879
THE JAMESON CLUB As the year is drawing to a close , so is the flrst season of the existence and activity of the Jameson Club . We have said that the production of seed seems to be the end and aim of plant life , and it is fitting and proper that we should consider the nature of this aim and end at this the last meeting for 1879 . We know that many plants spring up , flourish for a few months , blossom , and finally produce seed and then die . All these stages of life may occur in a single season , as in thousands of species , or even be crowded into the short space of a few weeks . Other plants are longer lived , but sooner or later they produce seed and die . Some plants produce seed annually at the close of each season s growth as in the case of the many kinds of nuts which children well know , and the various fruits of the orchard and garden . It is a familiar fact that plants produce seed and then close their operations for the season or forever . What is a seed that it should ...
A DOLL HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879
A DOLL HOUSE About this time of the year a great many kind parents are wondering what they can give to their children to please them most . And a graat many brothers , we are happy know , think long and anxiously as to what they can do to please their sisters , at Christ-mas-time . How many times have we heard the boys say : You see its easy enough for tlie girls to give Christmas presents ; tliey can make ever so many things , but what can we make to give to a girl ? Now then , boys , take our suggestion , make them a DOLL HOUSE . That is if you have any sisters that are not too old for that sort of thing . There is nothing in the world that will interest so many members of the family , young and old , as a doll house , and it continues to interest and give pleasure for a long time , for you can always be adding something to it . Suppose you talk over the matter with father and mother , and see if you can not combine forces and get up a doll-house for the girls . First , of course ...

CHILD'S COT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879
CHILDS COT DEAR F RIENDS : —1 hope all who have so kindly thought of the little sick children , and generously sent some contributions to provide for them , may have a really happy Christmas , and their good gifts be bountifully returned lo them .

BENNY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879
BENNY . I had told him Christmas morning , As be sat upon my knee , Holding fast hlsllttle stockings , Stulfcd as full as full could be , And attentive listening to me . With a face demure and mild . That good Santa Claus , who filled them , Does not love a naughty child . But well be good ; wontwe , moder ? And from off my lap he slid , Digging deep among the goodies , In his crimson stockings hid , While I turned me to my table . Where a tempting goblet stood , Br nimliig high with dainty eggnog , Sent me by a neighbor good . But the kitten , there before me With her white paw , nothing loath Sat , by way of entertainment Lapping off the shining froth And , iu not in the gentlest humor At the loss of such a treat , 1 confess , I ra . lier rudely Thrust him out into tne street .

Her big brother Tom , who was now attending college at C , had told her that he thought If she would learn to write , and should send him a letter addressed to Santa Claus , in his care , stating what she would like to have for Christmas , perhaps she might get her wish ; at any rate , he would try to deliver her letter . Such progress as Lucy made after this encouragement ! It was really wonderful . &gt; Her letter ran as follows : DBAR SANTA CLAHS ; YOU see by this letter that I can write now , just as brother Tom told me to ; so please dont forget to let me have a doll carriage when you come at Christmas .
