Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees A CALIFORNIA . HEN . California is a grand state with grand people and grand possibilities , many of which are made sureties by the splendid climate . Whether due to the climate or other causes the San Francisco Examiner does not * state when it tells the following story about a hen that makes her home in the Golden Gate city . Here is the story : A hen that builds her home in the willow and lives there like any of the ordinary tree-nesting birds is one of * the things talked about now out in the neighborhood of Fell and Stanyan streets . The eccentric fowl is the property of Joseph Landgraff , and the willow is in his back yard . She is no ordinary chicken , but has all of the fierceness of a hawk , and it is no uncommon thing for her to fly violently . at the head of any one who ventures about her peculiar habitation . A man named Allen , who runs thejback yard , has developed a proper fear of the ferocious hen , and all of his long acquaintance with...

SOME CONDITIONS FOR THE CANAL . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
SOME CONDITIONS FOR THE CANAL . IT IS clear that the Nicaragua Ganal will not be built , unless the United States government stands behind it This the people will favor , provided it is a practicable enterprise . Some recent reports , at least semi-official , were against it . But as other carefully-obtained , expert testimony pronounces the canal feasible , there seems to be ground enough i to order a thorough survey and examination of all the difficulties . Congress would be fully justified in going thus far . A bill , such as Representative Mahon , of . Pennsylvania , has introduced , may not be ptemature . It is entirely consistent , as we understand it , with such an official survey as we have indicated . This bill proposes control by our government together with possible ownership . This is a far better plan than that of a mere subsidy and . mortgage such as was used with the Pacific roads , and under which the government is being cheated out of the revenue due it , and other ...
WHY BORROW CAPITAL ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
WHY BORROW CAPITAL ? THE TIMES-HERALD , Chicago , a radical organ of the gold contractionists and foreign bondholders , in an article on Prosperity vs . Politics , says : The money question is a question of prosperity , not of politics . While agreeing with that declaration , we must most decidedly disagree with it as to what constitutes the basis of national prosperity . The goldite idea of national prosperity is built on borrowed foreign capital . It charges that the Senate , in standing for the free coinage of silver , has driven out foreign capital-, and says : There is not an industry in Illinois that will not be benefited by the return of this foreign money . The man who needs to borrow to make a payment on his little home is as much to be benefited by it as the great merchant ; the farmer as much as the manufacturer . A prosperity built on borrowed capital , it is unhecesasry to say , is of the most temporary and unsatisfactory character . Pay-day is sure to follow . A person...
WHY NOT BE CONSISTENT ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
WHY NOT BE CONSISTENT ? THE silver question does not follow old party lines , and in spite of the efforts of the leaders of each to shift the troublesome infant on the other , neither will accept it . Nevertheless , there are plenty of people who have definite ideas on the tariff and yet believe the currency to be the / more important question . To all such we wish to submit this question : What consistency is there in placing import duties on either raw or manufactured articles , and for the sake of building up home industries , when at the same time by our financial policy , we are driving those same industries to ruin by depressing prices to a point where rip industry can live . All our economists and politicians have agreed on the proposition that a moderate iariff is desirable in our nation at the present time . Then why , in the name of common sense , should we continue on a gold basis . England , with absolute free trade and ^ complete gold monometallism , is at least consist...

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM WINS . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
CIVIL SERVICE REFORM WINS . THE last and crowning triumph of reform in our civil service is the announcement that the president has decided to , include the fourth-class postoffices in the list of positibns under the law . Ten-years ago such a reform would have been as impossible of enforcement in political -circles , as the golden rule . To-day , it scarcely causes comment . To the victor belong the spoils is no longer • a political truism . The civil service law took 14 , 000 positions out of politics . To this number President Arthur added several hundred ariiid severe protests . Presidents Cleveland and Harrison added over fifteen thousand amid the grumbling of the baffled spoilsmen . Under the present ^ administration nearly 56 , 000 positions are made to depend on the qualifications rather than the political power of the holders . If the fourth class postofrices are included the last great menace of decent gpvernmentwill have been • cleared away . - • .

Our Young F oiks' Corner [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 30 April 1896
Our Young F oiks Corner A SPRING CHORUS . O , ; such a commotion under the ground When March called , Ho , there ! ho ! Such spreading of rootlets far and wide , Such whispering to and fro ! &gt; And , Are you ready ? the Snow-drop asked ; Tis time to start , you know . Almost , my dear , the Willow replied , ,, - Ill follow &lt; as soon as you go . Then , Ha ! ha ! ha ! a chorus came Of laughter soft and low , From the millions of flowers under the ground ; Yes , millions , beginning to grow . Ill promise my blossoms , the Crocus said , When I hear the bluebirds sing . And straight thereafter , Narcissus cried , My silver and gold Ill bring . And ere they are dulled , another spoke , My Hyacinth bells shall ring . And the Violet only murmured , I m here , And sweet grew the air of spring . Then Ha ! ha ! ha ! a chorus came Of laughter soft and low , From the millions of flowers under the ground ; Yes , millions , beginning to grow . O the pretty , brave things ! thr...

How we came to know each other is no matter . We meet at times at my own apart- . ments in a quaint old inn , beside i . cavernous fireplace , into which countless now sightless eyes have for centuries peered , and in a pleasant way we re-live our pilgrimings , or recount those romances of others which have touched our hearts and tarried there . -In this old room , with its brown rafters , decrepit floor and little , high dormer windows , like the portholes of an old frigate , we seem to become almost one in this kindly companionship . We are so much one that when my guests have departed I sit here by the old fireplace , where friendly voices and presences...
