Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees CARP CULTURE . • To the Editor : In reply to your inquiry for experience in carp culture , I give mine While we lived in Michigan we had a small pond , not to exceed four rods square , fed by a small spring about four rods away . The water was of the very best . The bottom of the stream was gravel , the soil overflowed was good black soil . We put in 274 small fish all the way from two to eight inches long ; were put in the pond in May and after two summers growth some of them weighed nearly four pounds . We began to use them for food at that time , and all-1 had to do was to say to the little boys we will have carp for supper and away they would go with hooks and lines and some bread crusts and they soon would be back with a mess of as good fish as you would wish to eat . I do not think we ever had better fish , and we have a great , mahy kinds , both fresh and salt water . We fed our fish with corn meal mush , sweet corn bread crumbs , meat , potatoe...

ENCOURAGE THE PATRIOTS . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
ENCOURAGE THE PATRIOTS . It is now a question whether ( the Cubans have not gone beyond the question of mere belligerent rights . Are they not entitled to be recognized as an indepenidfenit state ? We recognized the South American republics before they had -shown as much valor and persistency ! infighting lor and establishing ithek inidependence . It is clearly a question for congress to take up andi act upon . It is not a Questionof annexation . That shtould not be allowed tocomplicatethe matter . The fighting began on tlhe eaisiternend of the island and hais reached nearly to ithe extreme western end . To be sure there may be some question as to ; whether the • Cuban patriots hiave met and overcome tiie principal army of Spain ; but surely the latter has failed to stop -tiheir progress . If any declaration of our congress ^ yould help the patriots in finishing tiie work they haive so bravely begun , it should not be selfishl y ^^ wilti ^ hfeld or g ^ dg ^ thgly given .
. WHOIS TO BLAME ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
. WHOIS TO BLAME ? The situation in Armenia is not relieved . Many are asking : Who is most to blame for this continued slaughter of innocent Christian people ? Great Britain took the • contract to maintain order and properly suppress the Turk in Asia Minor . She does not stop the bloodshed and cruelty . s One gunboat of hers in the Black Sea and one att Alexandlretta would do it if accompanied- - &lt;\ yy a must and shall addressed ito the Sultan . Is tine indifference or inaction of the British owing to a fear of Russia ? Why not summon Russia and all the European powers to a conference and agree on something which shall put an end to this disgrace . If this is not done soon , it will be the duty • of the United States first to asik for such a conference , and if nothing effective comes of it theni send 1 iits owin gunboats to tiie scene andnts own summons to the Sultan . The sentiment of all Christendom would sustain our government in so doiiig ;
TIMETOACT . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
TIMETOACT . The United States has put in a claim for $ 100 , 000 for damages to missionary property at Kharput , Turkey , and . given notice that another claim will be entered ! and enforced for the damage done : at Maratii . This does not take into account tiie injuries to the lives and feelings . of the missionaries , nor the incalculable loss-.-to civilization by the cruel barbarities permitted if not encouraged by the Turkish misgovewirmenit , bu € it is a step in the right direction nevertheless . The United Sitates will have a hand in theEastern Question whether England likes it or not , arid her influence ought to be for good . The propertyof the Aiherican Board , in which thousands of American citizens , are directly interested , since the money so invested came from their pockets , has been wantonly destroyed in a number oi places . Their great educational 1 . enterprises successfully founded , some twenty , some thirty yeai $ ago and more , and sustained by the contributio...
RESPONSE TO ! THE MESSAGE . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
RESPONSE TO ! THE MESSAGE . R EVENUE measures must originate , in the House . Such is the Constitutional requirement . Chairman Dingley has prepared two bills , one for a bond issue payable in coin after five years from date , rate of interest 3 per cent per annum , the . proceeds to be used for the redemption of United States legal tender notes and containing in Section 2 , provision for the issue of Treasury certificates to the amount of $ 50 , 000 , 000 , payable in three years , with interest at 3 per cent and of the denomination of $ 20 . The direct purpose of these certificates is to meet any immediate and temporary deficiency . They are of small denomination so that the loan can come from the people . There would seem to be small objection to this Second Section , since the certificates are payable in lawful money and might be either iri silver or its equivalent or in any legal tender money . But there will be opposition of the silver men and many others * to the First Sectio...

TARIFF FOR REVENUE . IF the present revenue bill were made for purposes of protection and not for revenue , of course the President would veto it even if it should pjass Congress . The Democrats in both houses iwould be justified in filibustering and it would be next to iriipossible to pass it Section i imposes on imported wools 60 per cent of the duty imposed by the act of 1890 . Section 2 puts a ? tariff on imported woolen goods of the same airiOurit arid based in the same way on thet McKinley act .

WILL NOT STARVE . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
WILL NOT STARVE . If there should be a war with Great Britain one of the Consequences would be a cutting off of our exports of wheat and corn . This might possibly alarm some farrhers and make tories of those who do not look far enough ahead . But the fact is , if exports are cut off so will imports be arid with the springing into existence of hundreds of new industries in all parts of the land , there would be a better market for all products of the soil . We are not likely to starve . Last week s report gives : Available supplies of wheat in the United States and Canada east of the Rockies show an increase of 3 , 636 , 006 bushels ; afloat for and in Europe , increase 80 , 006 bushels .. Corn in the United States and Canada east of the Rockies , increase , 1 , 160 , 006 bushels . Oats , increase , 90 , 000 bushels ..

CUBAN SUCCESS . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
CUBAN SUCCESS . T HERE has been great excitement in Havana the past two weeks . News came that the insurgent Cuban army was near Matanzas but between it and Havana . This would make it within fifty miles of the capital city . It is marching in three columns , 12 , 000 strong . The Commander-in-chief is Gomez , the second in command , Maceo , a colored man but with white staff officers , and it is thought that the insurgent Secretary of War , Roloff , a Pole by birth , is in person present with one column and giving active direction in the campaign . Havana is more Spanish than any other city of Cuba . It is fortified by strong forts and is more or less under the fire of tiie fleet . Even should the insurgent troops reach the vicinity of Havana itself , it would not necessarily mean the immediate capture of the city , any more than the arrival of McClellan s army near Richmond , at the time of his Peninsula campaign in 1862 , meant the immediate fall of the rebel capital . On the oth...

WOMAN AND HER DOMAIN [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 January 1896
WOMAN AND HER DOMAIN THIS SORRY WORLD : . ( By Nixon Waterman . ) Lots o folks a-wearin mourin ; some folks puts It on their hat ; Others hev a secret sorrer hid away too deep fer that . Some remind us o their troubles ith a lot o gloomy clothes , While there s some : at mourns unheeded by -a grave nobody knows . There is a funerel occurin all erbout us every day . Where the heart o man er woman ; lays a tender hope away . There is faces that is smilin ; there is lips at V laugh and jest Ith a wish as dear as heaven hurried , jest inside the breast . Love an doubt an joy and sorrow came as sort o tangled up . Cant guess ef yer next door neighbor s is a sweet er bitter cup . Why a man is glad er gloomy—say , its pretty hard to tell , You may think he s got a picnic when he s at a fnnerel . So ef you should meet a feller ith the sunshine on his lips , Dont unfold yer cloud o * trouble like a terrible . eclipse . Though he may be bright and cheerful he hez grief an sorrer , too , Only ...
