HORACE McLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

HORACE McLEAN From Gassell s Family Magazine . CHAPTER I . FOR several months past Herr Brachmann had been one of the most popular men in Boston , Massachusetts . By birth a German , he had become , through long residence in the country , a naturalized American . He had imbibed , moreover , much of the genius of his adopted countrymen . Not a Yankee among them had grander notions , or a more ambitious or enterprising spirit . Herr Brachmann was a musician . He gave concerts—personally conducted—now in one town , now in another , throughout the United States . Such concerts ! He thought nothing of engaging for the same series , and at fabulous rates of payment , a noted tenor from England , a celebrated soprano from Germany , a prima-donna from the Italian Opera Company . In the matter of an orchestra , too , he was always very strong . At the present moment , 500 performersseated on a rising tier of semicircular benches arranged at the back of an immense stage—were engaged in fittin...

MARK TWAIN ON THE GERMAN LAN SUA 8 E . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

MARK TWAIN ON THE GERMAN LAN SUA 8 E . From a Tramp Abroad . He struggles with separable and much separated verbs and a small pronoun full of meanings : The Germans have another kind of parenthesis , which they make by splitting a verb in two and putting half of it at the beginning of an exciting chapter and tbe other half at the end of it . Can any one conceive of anything more contusing than that ? Tbeee things are called separable verbs . The German grammar is blistered all over with separable verbs ; and the wider the two portions of one of them are spread apart , the better the author of the crime is pleased with his performance . A favorite one is reitte ab , —which meant , departed Here is an example which I culled from a DOTOI and reduced to English : The trunks being now ready , he DE- alter kissing his mother and sisters , and once more pressing to his bosom hla adored Gretchen , who . dressed in simple white muslin , with a single tuberose in the ample folds of ner rich b...

THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

THE HOME . FASHION CLIPPINGS . A TASTEFUL mode of remodeling a long plain overskirt is to shirr the center point in two perpendicular rows , ornamenting it with looped ribbons placed in three groups . The sides are taken up a little more shortly than in front , forming upward curves , and the back is draped under a large bow of ribbon . NECKERCHIEFS of India mull , embroidered or hemstitched in squares on the edges , are shown . They are worn folded close around the neck , dispensing with the warm linen collar or full ruche at the throat . Dainty chemisettes of Breton and American lace are also shown for Summer wear . LAST year s black silk dresses which have been done over can not be better or more tastefully trimmed than with red surah , which brightens them up effectually . Surah is fast replacing satin for a Summer trimming on some silks , just as foulards are replacing heavy brocades on others . POPPV red and garnet shades are used for pleating . They are seen on traveling dres...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

MISCELLANEOUS THE EUCALYPTUS AS A DESTROYER OF MALARIA . Fpr the past twenty-five years the power of the trees of the genus eucalyptus have been recognized by scientists as having the power by means of their exhalations , of preventing or destroying malaria . Nature says that M . Ramel , Baron Muller and Sir W . Macarther appear the first to draw attention to the discovery . In marshy districts near eucalyptus forests fever seems to be unknown , and in parts of Corsica ) and Algeria where the tree has been planted for the sake of its reputed virtues endemic fevers have been stamped out . M . Gimbert , in a report to the French Academy , instanced the case of a farm situated in a pestilential district about twenty miles from Algiers , where by planting a number of the trees the character of the atmosphere was entirely changed . Similar testimony comes from Holland , the south of France , Italy , California , and many other parts of the world as to the febrifugal attributes of this tr...

THE SHEAF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

THE SHEAF . IT IS reported that nearly $ 5 , 000 , 000 worth of Iowa real estate is exempt from taxation this year , under the provisions of the acts to encourage timber culture . There are some narrow-minded people in the State who consider that that the State is thus wrongfully deprived of about $ 10 ,- 000 in revenue , and the counties by fully $ 100 , 000 , which sums must be received from other sources . The fact is that this tree planting so . enhances the value of the general real estate of the State that it yields many times the amount to the State and local governments . Iowa is pushing grandly toward the front rank of the States . It is the enterprise , wealth and intelligence of her farmers that is giving her this prominence . The acts for the encouragement of tree planting are doing wonders in the increase of values . It will be better for the State when the total of lands exempt from this cause is doubled . THE farmers of Italy are beginning to be recognized as having s...

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

AGRICULTURAL . QUERIES CONSIDERED . THE CURCULIO . Mr . J . P . Johnson , of Iowa , in speaking of the recommendation of a spoonful of coarse powdered saltpetre to a pail of water for destroying insects , asks why the remedy can not be applied to plum trees to destroy the insect that is so fatal to the plum crop . His own trees were full this year but the fruit is all dropping ofl . We suppose Mr . Johnson is speaking of the curculio . If so , we fear that the saltpetre solution will be of little avail . The plum curculio is a tough little fellow . He is the worst enemy to the plum known among insects . Jarring him down into sheets seems to be the only method of capturing him . At any rate , so difficult is he to subdue that he has almost put an end to plum culture in many localities . FLAX CULTURE . Mr . Mero , of Martin county , Minn ., writes : Will you please inform me through your useful and interesting REV * EW , whether flax is cultivated in the North for its fibre , and if i...

HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

HORTICULTURAL . IN THE FLOWER GARDEN . —No . 17 . Last week I answered that part of a correspondent s inquiry which had to do with roses . Now I will tell her what six shrubs I would select . My first one would be the lilac . Of all our dear , old fashioned flowers , there are none I love so well . I remember that I used to sit and watch them for hours , when I was a little fellow ; their fragrance always set me dreaming . I have never out-grown thc spell they wove about me years ago . Lilac-time is to me what strawberrytime is to the boys and girls . I always keep them about me on my table , the piano , and everywhere there is room for them , during their season . They are hardy as any thing possibly can be , and can always be depended on for flowers if the seeds are cut off and not left to ripen . The next year after a very full crop of flowers , much less must be expected of them than we would have a right to look for if the crop had been moderate , but however profuse the bloom ...

THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

THE POULTRY YARD . A DUCK FARM . A correspondent of tha London Agricultural Gazette gives an interesting account of a duck farm kept by Mr . George Monk , somewhere in England . At the time of his visit , he says , there were twelve hundred ducks , kept in nine or ten different pens , each pen containing all the ducks hatched in one week ; numbering from one hundred and twenty to one hundred and fifty . The hens are allowed with the young ducklings tor two or three weeks . They are tied by the leg with a cord two feet long , in a warm , well-ventilated pen , littered with straw . The young ducks can run out and into an open pen for food and sunshine . The food consists of boiled dog s meat , beef livers , mixed with shorts , barley meal and a little boiled rice . This is all made fine and thoroughly mixed with the hands . Mr . Monk finds ready sale for his young fat ducks in the London market , but we imagine the customers would not relish the savory meat so well did they know it wa...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL THE STREAKED COTTONWOOD BEETLE ( The perfect 1 ) 661168 , as is generally th case with the members of this family ¦ hibernate in sheltered situations . Thej 1 may be seen pairing and laying soon aftei the Cottonwoods begin to leaf in th < Spring . The eggs , which are elongate oval , of a pale yellowish-white color , rather soft , and about 0 . 5 mm . long , are laid in dense clusters of ten upward to a hundred . When first hatched the larva ? are almost wholly black , and congregate near their egg shells , skeletonizing the leaf . In the month of June we found the second brood of lame in Nebraska just hatching and commencing to work , and we I had the assurance of Prof . Aughey that there were at least three annual broods . We think it probable that there are even more , as the insect is not only a voracious feeder , but goes through its transformation with great rapidity , only fifteen days being required in the month of August from the hatching point to t...
