The Cyclorama of the Battle of Manila FOR months we have been reading many accounts of tlmt astonishing and decisive battle at Manila , in which our navy won the marked attention of the world and the Intense admiration of the , American people ., Comparatively , few people witnessed the destruction of the Spanish fleet ,. but . ; now any person in Chicago , by going to Wabash avenue and Hubbard • court , can get a realistic idea of this famous battle of May 1 st . An enterprising company has on exhibition an- electro-cyclo-cama of the Bay of Manila and the fleets engaged in this contest . A platform has been erected above the . deck of an imitation of the flagship of the fleet , the Olympia , on which Dewey directed this memorable fight .

Whv Not Be Truthful ? [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Whv Not Be Truthful ? THE Commercial Club , of Chicago , an eminently respectable body of the leading financiers , millionaires , etc ., of this city , at their meeting December 31 . adopted resolutions in favor of a special session of congress to tinker the currency , one of which says in part , The party in power came into power on Vao distinct promise of currency and financial reform , and already more than two years have passed without fulfillment . Evidently these gentlemen have short memories , as they are loo eminently respectable to _ be accused of being reckless of the . rulh . Nevertheless , their resolution is flatly at variance with Hie facts . The only declaration made by the party in power in its platform looking towards currency reform was as follows : . We are . therefore , opposed to the free coinage of silver except liy international agreement of the leading commercial nations of ¦ ilie world , which we pledge ourselves to promote , and until such airricemeflt can ...

The Fall of a Monarchy [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

The Fall of a Monarchy Bi r the decision of the Supreme Court , the Pullman Palace Car Company is compelled to give up its sovereignty over the town of Pullman and the town will soon become a part of the city of Chicago . Thus ends the last American monarchy . Pullman was started by . the man whose name it bears as a model town and -in many respects it was a niodel , but the principle on which it was founded was that of feudalism , not democracy , and it could not exist amid a liberty Tloving people . ¦ Mr . Pullman built his model , town outside of ; the crowded city , giving his workmen 1 the benefit of light andair , good sewerage , good buildings , school privileges , parks , playgrounds and other modern conveniences , and all this was well done . - The mistake was in liis policy of absolute control . Instead-of giving his workmen a chance to own their homes , he retained the ownership a ! nd his employes were like the vassals of a feudal lord ,. absolutely at his- mercy and dep...

A Call for Flax Culture [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

A Call for Flax Culture A NEW invention by a citizen , of Chicago is likely to result in a profitable manufacture pf linen in this country . This naturally will lead , to a more extensive culture of -flax . The experiments made by the agricultural department have shown that the . soil , and climate , in many parts of the United States are well adapted for the production of a line quality of flax . All that is necessary is for the farmers . to devote time and give more care to the production in order to have an article fully equal to the imported material . Wisconsin , Michigan and Oregon have soil that is as good as can be found anywhere for this product . Possibly experiments may show that there arcanumber of other states equally adapted , by soil and climate , to the raising of flax . Mr . Bertrand S . Summers , after five years of investigation , has discovered methods of preparing flax straw grown in this country so that it can be used with great success in manufactures . Yarn w...

Senatorial Electors [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Senatorial Electors TOO many times , in the history of elections to the United States senate , have arisen scandals involving the charge of bribery . The latest is from Montana . Thirty thousand dollars were shown as . bribe money . It is not , at this writing , certain that the person charged with bribery is guilty . His opponent may have supplied this money as a means of defeating him . The fact remains that there is a great temptation to use money where a United States Senator is to be chosen by a limited number of . voters , as in a state legislature . This journal has , therefore , advocated an election of the United States senators by the people , just as state senators are chosen . One of the incidental advantages would be that millionaries would not be so likely to be selected . Men would be selected for their talents , statesmanship and general fitness ; the siize of their purse would . not ; count . • Another , benefit would ; be that national issues would notenter into st...

The attendance was not as large as . the program merited but those who attended were amply repaid . In they course of his annual address-the president , Mr . G . H . Gurler , of De Kalb , said : If many farmers would work their brains more , read more and keep up with the procession in their work , they would accomplish muchi more in a . financial way than they do now . The : work of this ; association should be to devise better : methods of farming and dairying . We should strive as a society to stand on a broad plane of usefulness and be progressive in everything pertaining to farming , dairying and marketing the product . , There is a great loss and waste at the farm end of the business , through ignorance of true dairy work .

Succulent Food as an Appetizer [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Succulent Food as an Appetizer By Sumner Perkins . IN dairying , we cannot afford to lose sight of the necessity and utility of supplying regular feeds of some sort of green , succulent food in connection with the usual frations of the more ; solid foods , —grain and hay . It does not matter so much ; just what succulenf foods are chosen . Those that are cheapest and most available in any given , locality will mostnaturally be eniployed . All roots , such as turnips , beets , carrots , parsnips and potatoes are excellent for the purpose . Ensilage is also very good . Cabbages and pumpkins are very desirable when they are plenty and cheap . Whatever juicy food is selected , by all means supply a reasonable amount of it every day , for the efficiency of such is very marked . Such foods have what nourishment they contain in a most palatable and easily digestible form ; but their chief value doubtless , consists in the healthful stimulus they give the entire digestive system . These suc...

Experiment Farming' [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Experiment Farming By Bryan Tyson . THE beginner in every trade or profession is compelled to draw his wisdom from the accumulated experience of others . These experiences are tabulated and published in convenient forms for students of all kinds . Young lawyerswith their first case consult standard law books and learn just what has be en done under similar circumstances . Medical students at the beginning of their professional career have before them in convenient forms as a guide the experiences of the world s- greatest physicians and surgeons ; and so it is ih all the so-called learned professions . The profession of farming , however , has been rather backward along these lines , and only during the past few years have any great strides been made . The establishment of Agricultural Collegesand Experiment Stations has lead to wonderful improvements and it is now considered as necessary for a young man who expects to follow farming to receive a training in the special schools of ag...

Planning the Flower Garden [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Planning the Flower Garden I F it is true that only the useful is beautiful the meaning of useful must be . limited to . that which has only money value , and the actions of some men would Indicate that they considered nothing useful . thaty did not -have an actual money value in itself . A flower garden , home adornment either out of doors or within the house has no attraction to them because they are unable to wrest from these to their , pockets an immediate money return . They overlook the , fact that should they wish - -to sellthe 1 home place each-flower , shrub and tree would add to the market value of the farm many times what it had cost in money or time outlay . If the home happens to be made upon the farm or in the house belonging to another — a rented place forsooth the indifference and negligence of some men is passing strange . We hope many readers of this belong to the vast army of men who see the usefulness of the beautiful ; who get real joy and rest in pleasing surro...

Russian Thistle in the East [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Russian Thistle in the East . By M . A . Hoyt . L AST fall a farmer friend of ours who is also a surveyor , while surveying the railroad lands of Genesee county , New York , found a strange weed growing in greater or less profusion at various points along the different lines of road . His suspicion was aroused as to its noxious character , and he sent a sample to the State Experiment Station , where it was pronounced the genuine Russian thistle . The supervisors were notified , and at a meeting of the board were recommended to take immediate steps towards effecting its extermination ; that by no oversight should a single representative be left to spread the pest to adjoining . farming lands . As the discovery . was not made till the crops had matured , the only course was to gather and burn the plants in order to destroy the SGGClS . Search was afterward extended along the railroads in neighboring counties . A botanist reported finding about a thousand of the plants on the Genesee r...

, Buying of Agents [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

, Buying of Agents By J . M . Rice . I HAVE never used the words • slick tongued in referring to agents but rather have had a good word to say for them . I have looked upon them as unnecessary to me as I have never yet willingly bought anything of them . I have kept posted as to what I wanted and what there was to sell so when I wanted farm implements I either ordered from manufacturers who would sell to farmers or bought of dealers , and the same with trees , plants , books , papers , etc . But when I go on to farms and realize that not a tree or shrub would . have been there if it had not been for some persistent agent and notice in the home that the only books there have been sold by . an agent , so that much of comfort and pleasure and real profit has resulted from the agents work , I prefer to commend rather than condemn . Agents are generally good talkers and salesmen and some of them are well posted and their statements may be relied upon , but there are others who are not po...

Honey Plants [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899

Honey Plants By A . H . Duff . TO name all the important honey-bear-ing plants would be impossiblo here , but the plants that furnish the bulk of the honey crop of this country are not numerous , and are generally well known . Perhaps the leader in both quantity and quality is the common white clover . This usually comes into bloom about the first of June , and lasts until pet-haps the middle of July . Six weeks of white clover honey flow is considered a good honey harvest of this plant , and apiarists are very well satisfied if they get four weeks of a continuous flow of nectar from it . White clover honey is of the best quality , and commands the highest market price . Second in importance is perhaps the American linden , or basswood , as it is frequently called . This is not as general as clover , but it is found in localities pretty generally distributed over the country . The blossoms of the basswood open about the first of July , and continue two or three weeksduring which tim...
