Second-Hand Farmers . " [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 July 1868

Second-Hand Farmers . In a recent report , In the N . T . Tribune , of the proceedings of the American Institute Farmers Club , the reporter , N . C . MEEKER , says : Letters frequently come Into the reporter s hands signed by men for others—that Is , as foremen or managers . Not { infrequently they hare something to say of importance , and it is passably well told ; but all such letters are thrust into the waste basket . When farming in America has to be taught at second-hand , it is time for a man of spirit to engage in some other business . Euglish agilcultural literature , to a great extent , Is of this character , and it has degraded American farming more than anything else . When 160 acres of as cood land as rain ever moistened , or as sun ever shone upon , can be bad for nothing , or at least for $ 1 . 25 an acre , let nobody working another man s farm undertake to instruct the masses living on land of their own . . . From all of which we dissent . Let whosoever has something...

So widely ex tended aud so long continued extreme heat is quite rare . The loss of life or severe Injury from sub-stroke or over-exertion has been great . In some places Injury has been done to vegetation , while in others advantage has resulted . During the continuance of the warm weather , more than ordinary care should be taken to preserve health , especially by those with whom considerable physical labor Is essential . Tbe quantity atd quality of food aud drink , and the times and manner of their use , should be objects of care . Cleanliness of the person , the house and its surrounding * , should be strictly...

A Trip Through Iowa—The Grasshoppers . I have lately returned from a trip through Iowa , and thluking that some of your many readers might like to read a partial description of a portion of that State , I thought I would give a short sketch of my journeyings . I started from McGregor on the 11 th of May , and went in a south-west course nearly to Nebraska . The country ; for thirty or forty miles from the river , is mostly high rolling land , with considerable timber , some brush land and prairie . After that it is high prairie , and no timber to speak of , excepting on the streams . The soil , until you come within forty miles of Des Moines , has a great deal of quicksand In lt , which is very soft In u wet time , and very dry In a dry time .
