CHICAGO AS A PORT OF ENTRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

CHICAGO AS A PORT OF ENTRY The total value of goods imported through the Chicago custom house in 1870 amounted to $ 1 , 038 , 243 , the duty on which was $ 397 , 136 . In 1879 the goods imported amounted to $ 4 , 021 , 548 , the duties thereon being $ 1 , 807 , 052 , thus advancing Chicago to the sixth place as a port of entry . What the development of this trade would be in the course of a decade , were Chicago able , by means of ship canal facilities , to export and import goods from Eu . rope without transhipment , is , we believe , far beyond the estimate of even the most sanguine Chicagoan . What we regard , however , as especially worthy of notice in the above figures , is the relative amount of duty paid to the total value of goods imported — $ 1 , 807 , 052 to $ 4 , 021 , 543 . These figures more than confirm the statements of an English political economist , Mr . Mongredien , who , in placing the amount of imported goods annually purchased by western farmers at $ 1 , 400 , ...

CROPS AND MARKETS ABROAD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

CROPS AND MARKETS ABROAD The Mark Lane Express , in its review of the grain trade the past week , says : The harvest in England will probably commence within a week , and will be general in three weeks . The wheat plant still stands well , despite recent storms , but there is some increase in blight . A good deal of barley was laid by storms , but where it escaped , this barley is the roost promising of crops . Oats in Ireland and Scotland are exceedingly good . The markets during the past week have been almost stationary . All present influences of offerings and stocks favor an advance in prices , but trade is completely dominated by the harvest prospects of this and other countries . These are far from being uniformly promising , but taken altogether , they are sufficiently unfavorable to prevent the improvement which the ordinary circumstances of supply and demand should have otherwise induced . Continental inquiry has continued , but there are signs of abatement . British purcha...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS In a recent number of the REVIEW we referred incidentally to one of the advantages afforded policy holders in a stock company by the capital of the latter , which is all pledged to pay their losses if necessary , and for the use of whieh they pay but a very small rate of interest This feature of stock Insurance is worthy of a little further elucidation . A stock insurance company is formed with a capital of say $ 1 , 000 , 000 paid up In cash . From the moment the company is organized and the first risk written , that $ 1 , 000 , 000 is pledged for the payment of the losses of the company s policy , holders . Besides which , that amount of money being invested in bonds , stocks , buildings and real estate mortgages , becomes a large source of income to the company , more than covering in many cases the dividends paid to the stock-holders , whose money is thus pledged for the benefit of policy-holders , who contribute little or nothing for the extra security thus affo...

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

RAILROAD ITEMS . A LEADING railway journal says : Unquestionably the bravest men in America are those who stand upon the footboards of the locomotives which draw the fast express-trains . But few persons are aware of it , but on the leading railways , where connections must be made it possible , only engineers known to be brave and daring are given engines of express-trains , and as soon as the engineer shows the least timidity about running fast he is taken from his engine and given one on a freight-train to run . Two such cases have occurred on the Indianapolis roads . Railroad officers state that the first sign that an engineer is becoming timid is that he will be live or ten minutes late , possibly half an hour , for some days and nights in succession . He is then called to an account , and , unless his reasons are convincing , another engineer is given his engine to run for a few times , and should he bring in tbe train promptly on time the first-named engineer gets a freight-t...

LITERARY . RIDING DOWN . Oh ! ( lid yon see lslm riding down , And ridlugdown , while all the town Came out to see , came out to see . And all the bells rang mad with glee ? Oh ! did you hear the bells ring out , The bells ring out , the people shout , And did you hear that cheer oil cheer That over all the hells rang clear ? And did you see the waving flags . Tho fluttering flags , the tattered flags , Ked , white , and blue , shot through and through Baptized with battle s deadly dew ? And did you hear the drums gay beat , The drums gay beat , the bugles sweet , The cymbals clash , the cannon s crash , That rent tlie sky with sound and flash ? And did you see me waiting there , Just waiting there and watching there , One little lass amid tlie mass That pressed to see the hero pass ? And did you see him smiling down . And smiling down , as riding down With slowest pace , witli stately grace , He caught the vision of a face—My face uplifted , red and white , Turned red and white wit...

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

THE HOME . THE BOYS . There come tho boys ! O dear the noise , The whole house feels the racket ; Behold the knee ot Harry s pants , And weep o er Bertie s jacket . But never mind , if eyes keep bright , And limbs grow straight and limber ; Wed rather lose tlie tree s whole bark Than And unsound the timber . Now hear tlie tops and marbles roll ! The floors—0 , woe betide them ! And I must watch the banisters , For I know boys who ride them ! Look well as you descend the stairs , I often And them haunted By ghostly toys that make no noise , Just when their noise is wanted . Tlie very chairs are tied in pairs , And made to prance and caper ; What swords are whittled out of sticks ? What brave hats made of paper ! Tlie dinner-bell peais loud and well , To tell the milkman s coming ; And then the rusli of steam-car trains , Sets ail our ears a humming . How oft I say , What shall I do To keep these children quiet . If I could fi ud a good receipt , I certainly should try it . But what t...

FOR YOUNG READERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS JAPANESE MUSICIANS . The curious instruments depicted in our illustration are not very much like the band instruments that we are accustomed to see in this country , and yet a certain likeness can be found between our flute , drum and flageolette aud some of the instruments used by these Japanese musicians . The Japanese are very fond of music , and rarely give any kind of entertainment of which it is not one of the principal features ; and yet European ears find their peculiar music quite disagreeable , and rarely , if ever , get used to it . It is somewhat singular that a people so gifted in many respects as the Japanese , who have shown such wonderful aptitude in many of the arts and sciences , should be so backward in the matter of music . The Japanese have one quality , common , it is said , to all classes , high and low , in which they unfortunately can be said to ex cel all the most highly civilized peoples of the world , and one which it would do all young ...

M ISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 July 1880

M ISCELLANEOUS WONDERFUL ELECTRICAL PHENOMENA . The Times Geneva correspondent writes , under date of June 20 , that a remarkable electrical phenomenon occurred at Clarens on the afternoon of Thursday last . Heavy masses of rain-cloud hid from view the mountains which separate Fribourg from Montreux , but their summits were from time to time lit up by vivid flashes of lightning , and a heavy thunderstorm seemed to be raging in the valleys of the Avanls and the Alliaz . No rain was falling near the lake , and the storm still appeared far off , when a tremendous peal of thunder shook the houses of Clarens and Tavel to their foundations . At the same instant a magnificent cherry-tree near the cemetery , measuring a metre in circumference , was struck by lightning . Some people who were working in a vineyard hard by saw the electric fluid play about a little girl who had been gathering cherries and was already thirty paces from the tree . She was literally folded in a sheet of flre . Th...
