FRENCH CATTLE .-AMERICAN HORSES FOR FRANCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

FRENCH CATTLE .-AMERICAN HORSES FOR FRANCE . Any one who has seen the magnificent animals known as the Charolaix breed of cattle in France , and who is aware of the high estimation in which they are held as beef , must be convinced that such stock imported into this country could not but have a beneficial influence on the animals we are breeding , each year in great numbers , for the shambles , either at home or abroad . We know that to some the question whether the best breeds of French cattle were able to withstand the severe extremes of our climate has presented itself . We put this question recently to a distinguished French agriculturist , and were pleased to receive from him an affirmative reply . It was his opinion that the best breeds of French cattle could easily adapt themselves to the climate of the United States , that they were hardier than the English cattle , and would probably require less care . The importance of constant improvements in our beef animals can not be ...

UTILIZATION OF SEWAGE AND PRESER VATION OF STREAMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

UTILIZATION OF SEWAGE AND PRESER VATION OF STREAMS . Under the stimulus of a prize offered by the King of Saxony , for the best method of purifying the waste water of factories , and rendering it and also sewage harmless to fishes , foreign papers have been discussing this problem , and a number of competitors have entered for the award . Among these is the Native Guano Company , of Aylesbury , Great Britain . The process invented by this company is novel and ingenious , and is thus described by a correspondent : Upon arrival at the factory the foreman in charge conducted us through the establishment . Our starting point was at the end of the large sewer , into which flowed the sewage or a town of some 8 , 000 inhabitants , including all the deleterious waste water ot factories , etc . At the point where we stood this mass of filth emptied into a huge trough which was being fed at the same time from another trough containing a mixture of blood , charcoal and clay , which perceptibly...

FRUIT PACKAGES-SELLING BY WEIGHT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

FRUIT PACKAGES-SELLING BY WEIGHT A correspondent seems at a loss as to the size of packages for use in marketing berries , and asks for information through the REVIEW . • We take occassion to say that no board of trade , board of aldermen or other board can regulate the size of packages so as to prevent any producer ot fruit from selling it in just such packages as he sees fit . City boards can only pass ordinances preventing fraud and deception , and it is their duty to protect their fellow citizens by doing so . If all commission merchants would examine packages consigned to them , to learn whether they were cheats—having good fruit where exposed to sight , and inferior or worthless stuff in the interior and at the bottom—and refuse to receive and sell packages found - to be so packed , the evil would at once be cured , and shippers compelled to brand their packages and have the contents correspond to the brand . This correspondent also wishes to know what constitutes a gallon of ...

IMPORTANT TO APIARIANS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

IMPORTANT TO APIARIANS In nearly every part of the Northern United States there is an almost utter dearth of honey secreting flowers from July 15 th until August 20 th . Thus our bees are unable to gather any stores unless by sowingor planting such herbs as Catnip , Motherwort , Mignonette , Rocky Mountain Bee plant , Mustard , Rape or Figwort , we supplement tlie natural bee pasturage . It is a well known fact to all observing apiarists , that with a cessation of gathering , follows a pause in egg laying , and as a consequence there is no brood rearing . This state of things so weakens the colonies that at the time of Autumn harvest there are too few bees to insure the profits that we ought to desire and expect . The present season , in Michigan and many other localities , has been so wet , that up to this time the yield of honey has been very light and discouraging . In the East a severe drouth has brought a like misfortune . It is all the more desirable then to prepare to realize...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS SOME MUTUAL NOTES . The Chronicle ( New York ) reports the withdrawal from the West of the Lycoming Insurance Company , which , It says , has been compelled to succumb under an accumulated load of comparatively small misfortunes , heaped upon the handicap ot the mutual system . It may be that the company will survive as a small local , but in the most favorable circumstances it could hardly hope to regain any thing like its former prominence in the agency field . It is hardly probable that an attempt even will be made at such resumption . In the circular issued by George P . Treadway _ fc Co ., general agents , the following occurs : We are advised by the Lycouiihg Insurance Company that a circular has been sent you announcing the withdrawal of the Company from this and other Western States . Tills action was entirely unexpected by us , and has been caused by the unusually heavy losses sustained by the Company at Milton and Coudersport , Pa ., together with others oc...

RAILROAD ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

RAILROAD ITEMS MEXICAN CENTRAL . —It appears that Mexico is at last in a fair way to have an internal railway , and one which will eventually communicate with the United States . The Mexican Central Company , which consists for tbe most part of Boston capitalists , has . obtained a valuable congressional grant giving it it right of way for a trunk line with branches of standard gauge from the City of Mexico to Leon , a distance of about 262 miles . The grant entitles the company to valuable subsidies and to exemption from duties and other taxes for a term of years . The company after receiving its grant made an agreement with the executive , subject to congressional approval , for an extension of its rights of way to Lavdo , to the Pacific , and to El Paso del Norte . This latter agreement was submitted to Congress at its last session , and so were various other similar applications . Instead of approving any of these schemes , Congress passed a general law , to be in force till the...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

LITERARY TWO FISHERS . One morning when Spring was in her teeiisA morning to a poet s wishing , All tinted in delicate pinks And greensMiss Bessie and I went fishing . t , lu my rough And easy clothes , With my face at the sun-tan s mercy ; She , filth her hat tipped down to her nose , And her nose tipped vice versa . I , with my rod , my reel , and my hooks , And a hamper for lunching recesses ; She , with the halt of her comely looks , And the seine of lier golden tresses . So we sat us down on the sunny dyke , Where the white pond-lilies teeters And I went to Ashing like quaint old Ike . And she like Simon Feter . All the noon I lay in the light of her eyes , And dreamily watched and waited ; Hut the fish were cunning , and would not rise And the baiter alone was baited . And when the time for departure came . My bag hung flat as a flounder ; But Bessie had neatly hooked her game—A hundred aud ffft } pounder !

EDGAR ALLEN POE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

EDGAR ALLEN POE . BY L . C . HARRIS . The following searching and apprcciative analysis of the writings and character of the gifted Poe , was sent us by a Vermont correspondent . The admirers of the poet among our readers , will thank us for its reproduction : There have appeared at different stages of the world s history minds so anomalous in their nature , so totally at variance with those surrounding them , so unnatural and equivocal in their construction , that they have seemed more like errant spirits from the world beyond than those possessing the attributes and propensities of common mortals Prominent among the names in this strange order of beings occurs that of Edgar Allen Poe . He combines in a remarkable degree two elements of mind seldom found united—analysis and imagination . These constitute the groundwork of his genius , they are the source of his wonderful power . No two faculties could stand more opposite in their effects . Their union in him gave to many of his sub...

A PECULIAR POSITION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

A PECULIAR POSITION . ( From Temple Bar . ) ( Concluded from page 27 . ) The reply was inaudible—they had turned their backs ; but Angel imagined what the answer must be by the way Leslie s head bent down close—oh , so close—to Celia s upturned face . Why was she not a little nearer to hear Leslie s broken : Dont Celia ! dont give me that pain ! I must never meet Angel again ! — and Celia s murmured answer ; Toor Leslie ! forgive me , I was thoughtless ! But indeed she is not worth your love ! And why do opportunities come so adversely that sometimes between two people living in the same house there should grow up a wall of separation so slight , a few words would destroy it , and yet the chance of explanation never comes ? CHAPTER VII . The morning s post brought a letter from Arthur to say he was called suddenly to London on business and wished to return as suddenly , taking Angel back with him . Could she manage to come away at once , with a few of her things , leaving the rest t...

MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 July 1880

MISCELLANEOUS . THE NON-UTILITY OF LIGHTNING RODS . BY DR . M . W . BRUBAKER , BARRY , ILL . The protective power of the lightning rod is based on the following points : 1 . Electricity always follows the line of best conductors . 2 . Points discharge electricity silently , —knobs produce explosions . 3 . Metals are the best conductors : — hence , — 4 . Rods of iron or copper will receive the electric discharge in preference to other material , wood or stone , if the rods are placed higher than the surrounding object . 5 . And lastly , the assumption that a rod protects a circle whose radius is four times the height of the rod above the building . Their utility I deny in toto . In defense of this position I shall offer two kinds of arguments , —Science and Facts . Let us first consider the question from a scientific standpoint . Most of the points claimed are true in a general sense but they are not applicable to the specific subject under consideration . The first statement is true...
