FICTION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 24 June 1880
FICTION A prominent farmer in Bureau County , 111 ., a friend and reader of the FARMERS REVIEW , while expressing in high terms his general approbation of the paper as a farm and home journal , takes exception to the publication in its colums of fictitious tales . He regards the publication and reading of fictitious matter as detrimental to the morals of the community , and declares that the formation of a healthy public opinion in opposition to this kind of literature would be a grand moral revolution . We can not help thinking that such views must be due to the prevalence in daily increasing quantities of a class of fictitious publications , by no one more condemned than by the publishers of the REVIEW . There is no doubt that more impure , unwholesome imagination , more admiration of evil , and deprecation of true virtue , is engendered in the minds of the rising generation by this kind of reading than by any other cause , with most deplorable results , of which the daily papers ...
LITERARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 24 June 1880
LITERARY . JUNE MEMORIES . Now , dame , the morn doth promise fair , Tis kind and genial weather , So prithee quit that easy chair , And let us f ortff together . The merry month of June is here , Adorning briar and bramble ; Come , slip your bonnet on , my dear . And join me In a ramble . I well recall that happy day When , through the green lanes straying , I met a little maiden cay And went with her a-maying . She was but tun , and I no more , Her cheeks were round and rosy . And ln her whlte-bibbed pinafore She wore a pretty posy . She tripped so daintily along , And prattled on so cheerly , I heeded not the sky-larks song , Although I loved that dearly . There was a music in her voice , So witching , so entrancing . It mace my inmost heart rejoice And set my pulses dancing . Obedient to her commands , f dared the thorniest hedges , And scratched and tore my face and hands In climbing banks and ledges , To win a spray of hawthorn bloom—Nor deemed the task a labor—Or culled some ...

THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 24 June 1880
THE HOME . WERE ALL HONEST . We all are honest—oh , of course ; Of this remark Bogus shows the force Whene er he swaps a mule or horse—Tou know him . Old Blodger , ere the prices drop , Brings Into town hisapplecrop—The biggest apples on the top , Wholl know lt ? The parson , feeling rather blue , Declines to write a sermon new And makes an early effort do—Wholl know It . The lawyer—but , alas ! I shrink Krom saying here just what I think—I pause to wink a large sized wink . D ye see it ? The doctor , having little skill , Rolls up a very harmless pill—It can not cure , it can not kill . Thats human . The butcher to fits patron owns , His meat is somewhat mostly hones , And adds , I bought em , in such tones As hushes doubt . The politician—but again I sadly drop my feeble pen , And , thinking of this citizen , I once more wink . The deacon says his prayers arise , Without an effort to the skiesIt takes him hours to memorize The borrowed ones . The editor—but here I pause ; God bles...
FOR YOUNG READERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 24 June 1880
FOR YOUNG READERS . Written for the PARMEBS REVIEW . THE RAINY DAY . O , Madge , just look how the rain ls falling ! And the clouds are so thick , they will never away , Didnt I once hear somebody calling Trouble , —a wearisome rainy day ? And a rainy day s trouble for our fun ls all ended , And the woods were so nice , only yesterday , And the picnic was to have been so splendid , — Ahl there s nothing so sad as a rainy day I Nothing so sad , said Madge , musing , I think there ls real grief somewhere , Maybe tbe clouds , for the wealth they are losing , Are pouring their tear ., down Into the air . No that Isnt lt , for she saw at a glance , they Would save their tears and treasures as well , But before she could straighten the tangled fancy . The boys rushed by with a whoop and a yell . Hurrah for the branch ! and thelr bare feet bounded , Kneedeep and Just booming , now for aplay , And over the rivulets plashing sounded , Their cry , Whats as nice as a rainy day ! Madge listed t...
MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 24 June 1880
MISCELLANEOUS . CURIOSITIES OF OMNIVEROUS MANKIND . There are numerous—we had almost said numberless—curiosities in connection with eating and drinking , even although our observations are restricted to the human family . If our natural teeth are examined at maturity , they are found to point out their possessor as omniverous , and if they did otherwise , we should , in the face of the following facts , regard them as false indicators , or , in other words , false teeth . Beef and bread are thetypical foods in the British Isles , but nowhere else ; almost every country has its own typical foods , together with miscellaneous articles of food of all descriptions . Dogs flesh , cats , monkeys , birds nests , are all savory morsels of the Chinese . The hedgehog is regarded as a dainty dish to set before a king in Barbary , and is largely consumed in Spain and Germany . Kangaroos are relished by the aborigines of Australia . The opossom is eaten in America , Australia , and the Indian Is...
