Backward or Forward—Which ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 March 1886
Backward or Forward—Which ? The bill introduced into the Senate to double postage on fourth-class matter was step backward . Is cheap postage a mistake ? Were Rowland Hill and Henry Fawcett enemies of the race or benefactors ? Was the 25-cent rate on letters better than two cents ? Was the opening of the mails to books , seeds , samples , etc , at a low rate , in the interest of a privileged class , or was it for the people ? These questions answer themselves , Few measures have been introduced in Congress which would have been more unpopular than the bill referred to . Worse than this the opinion universally prevails that the proposed legislation was prompted by the express monopolies About ten years ago the postage on plants , seeds , etc , was doubled by a bill hurried through without allowing opportunity for the people to oppose it . Forewarned , forearmed . This time—with the lesson of the other experience well learned and with an agricultural press alive to the situation—our N...

The Lawyers Applaud Sparks , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 March 1886
The Lawyers Applaud Sparks , There are people who commend the course of Land Commissioner Sparks . They are the lawyers . There is no great mystery about it when the facts are stated . For example from a single land office in Montana were received 1 , 500 rejected applications for entries upon land already certified to railroads , but , under the celebrated Guilford-Miller decision , thrown open to settlement . This usually carries $ 15 to $ 20 to the lawyers in each case for pre paring the first papers . It is not probable any of them will secure good titles . But this does not matter as affecting the harvest for the lawyers . It is not to be won - dered at , therefore , that the Commissioner has received a letter from a convention of lawyers setting forth their unbounded faith in his integrity , shrewdness , and honesty of purpose . So it appears there was held in the same town , the same day and in the same hour , a meeting of lawyers which found nothing but good in what Sparks h...

*¦»¦ — Is any Increase of Postage Desirable ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 13 March 1886
*¦»¦ — Is any Increase of Postage Desirable ? No doubt a reduction on seeds , plants , bulbs and cions would be in the interest of farmers and of the people in general But when Senator Wilsons new bill is passed , and the obnoxious bill , also , shall be amended to conform to it , then the question arises , should there be an increase on any fourth-class matter what &gt; soever ? Just here every man , woman and child is interested . The ladies , remote from large cities , are making household and dry goods purchases by samples Children are obtaining watches , small steam-engines , skates , magic lanterns and all sorts , of articles for both amusement and utility , sent by mail . Large commercial business enterprises in goods of almost innumerable kinds are thus car ried on . Electrotypes , which really belong to the domain of books and ought to go as thirdclass are a large item in the aggregate . N W Ayer &amp; Son , Philadelphia , state that they pay $ 15 , 000 a ye...

Agassiz and His Father . A good story is told of Agassiz , the great naturalist . His father destined him for a commercial life , and was impatient at his devotion to frogs , snakes and fishes . The latter especially were objects of the boy s attention . His vacations were spent in making journeys on foot through Europe , examining the different species of fresh-water fishes . If you can prove to me that you really know anything about science , I will consent that you shall give up the career I have planned for you , said his father . Young Agassiz , in his next vacation , being then eighteen , visited England , taking with him a letter of introduction to Sir Roderick Murchison . You have been studying nature , said the great man bluntly . What have you learned ? The lad was timid , not sure at that moment that he had learned anything .
