CROWDING THE GRASSHOPPERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
CROWDING THE GRASSHOPPERS Prof . Cyrus Thomas , of the Entomological Commission , was interviewed by a Times reporter the other day , as he was on his way home from the grasshopper country . The professor believes that he has discovered the solution of the locust problem . Prom 1873 to 1877 it was noticed that the grasshoppers hung close to a section of high land prairie in southwestern Minnesota , close to Dakota , known as the couteau of the prairie . He had satisfied himself that the reason lor this was that on this couteau the grasshoppers found the topographical and climatic conditions suited to a breeding place , pn account of the moisture this year very few grasshoppers had appeared here , and Prof . Thomas believed that they could be driven away from the locality entirely . To do this the ground must be cultivated , and timber must be grown . Using the fast growing Cottonwood , the latter could be accomplished in a short time . Grass hoppers would not breed in ip , wooded co...

THE SHIP CANAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
THE SHIP CANAL The special committee appointed at Peoria to prepare an address to the people of Illinois on the subject of a ship canal connecting Lake Michigan with the Mississippi river , has given to the press a strong and carefully prepared document . The committee consisted of Carter H . Harrison , B . 8 . Prettyman and Granville Barnes . The committee says : The effect of such a canal as is desired by the people of the West , and by all interested in cheap transportation over the whole country , will be very conspicuous at a great many points west of Chicago and the Mississippi river . Witness the result by the Erie canal . The last reportotthe Treasury Department on internal commerce for 1879 , has this to say on the question : Although with respect to through traffic the Erie canal successfully competes with the New York Central Railroad only for the transportation of grain , minerals , lumber and other coarse freights , yet that water-way operates as a very important regula...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS PEEVKHTLVO LOSSES . — Every insurance agent can be recognized as a public benefactor if he will give careful attention to the prevention of fires . Let him thoroughly study the causes of fire losses , and then inquire whether any of these causes exist in risks he has insured . We are certain that , in the majority of cases , agents fail to apprehend their duties to their companies and to the public as preventorsof fire Josses . The insurance profession would at once grade higher with the people if the insurance agents , as a class , were as solicitous to reduce the hazard as they are to write the risk . This kind ot service tbe people would immediately appreciate , and if rendered would be certain to result fn fewer losses and in a generous recognition of the good work performed . The points of danger of risks should all be carefully noted , and no pains should be spared to induce the owners of property to bring it into the safest possible condition . Chimneys should...
RAILROAD ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
RAILROAD ITEMS IN view of the claim made by the railroads that it will be Impossible to stop the emission of smoke and cinder from the smoke-stacks of locomotives burning bituminous coal , it has been suggested that railroads might use coke within the city limits and thus stop the smoke nuisance in the city . The railroad managers say that plausible as the suggestion looks on paper , it can not be done . Mr . E . T . Jeffrey , general superintendent of the Illinois Central , and one of the most experienced master mechanics in the conn try , has made experiments with coke for some years past , and reports results not satisfactory . The Wabash , St . Louis and Pacific is having the greatest freight blockade known in its history . From Toledo to Danville the road is one continuous train . Freights going east move forward twelve or sixteen hours , then side track , and lay there as many hours in turn , waiting to give the west-bound freights a chance , which move in the same way .

HORACE McLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
HORACE McLEAN From CasseUs Family Magazine . ( Continued from page 75 . ) ( JilAITEK VI . When my little girl died , Horace , —- so Mrs . McLean pursued— I could not shed a tear . A blank despair seemed to have settled upon my heart ; the whole creation was changed for me . I shut myself up with my dead child and prayed to die also . Towards evening of the third day , however , I was forced out of that selfish absorption in my own misery . Mrs . Cunningham had been complaining for some time of indisposition , and this day she had not risen from her bed . In the evening her child was born—born prematurely , as I was aware . Joel had set off in haste to fetch a doctor and nurse from a station thirty miles distant . But neither of them , when they arrived , could do much for her . On the fourth day after her child was born she died . Horace , I was not sorry ; on the contrary , my wicked breast was filled with joy . In those four days I had transferred all the love I had borne to my ow...

LITERARY . GROWING OLD . BY ALBERT lIKK . The Spring has less of brightness Every year ; And the snow a ghastlier whiteness Every year ; Nor do Summer flowers quicken , Nor Autumn fruitage thicken , As they onco did , for tbey sicken Every year . It Is growing darker , colder , Every year ; As the heart aud soul grow older Every year ; I care not for dancing , Or tor eyes with passionglancing , Love is less and less entrancing Every year . Of the loves and sorrows blended , Every year ; Ot the charms of friendship ended , Every year ; Of the ties lhat still might bind me , Until Time to Death lesign me . My infirmities remind me , Every year . Ah ! how sad to look before us , Every year ; While the cloud grows darker . o er us , Every year ; When tlie blossoms are faded , That to bloom we might have aided , And immortal garlauds braided , Every year . To the past go more dead faces , Every year ; As the loved leave vacant places , Every year ; Everywhere the sad eyes meet us , In tl...
A SOMEWHAT UNRELIABLE BIOGRAPHY , BUT GOOD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
A SOMEWHAT UNRELIABLE BIOGRAPHY , BUT GOOD . Jerry made an appearance in Ivanpaugh District , in Arizona , early in its history . He was a mule . Very pronounced mule . Joe Singleton brought him into the district . He said he gave $ 100 fox Mm in California . He expected to get some work out of Jerry in the mines . He didnt . Jerry was the color of a sunbeam buffalo robe , large and angular , and knock-kneed before and behind . Very , behind . He had only one ear . The other had probably been cut off by some one in a fit of anger . It was , no doubt , the last mule s ear that that man ever cut off . Jerry was a mule that would resent any thing of that kind . When he was going to sleep his surviving ear would nod , and nod , and sink lower and lower , until it hung down over his eyes . Jerry was dreaming then of his childhood days . He was an old mule in meanness . Joe tried Jerry at various kinds of work . Tried him at a whim for raising ore . Jerry didnt work long until he had a mi...
STATING A CASE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
STATING A CASE Ancient sailors steering between Scylla and Charybdis had the hard choice to be destroyed by one or the other . A Southern criminal had as forlorn a chance for life at the hands of a negro judge , if the following story is true which comes from the Southwestern frontier . We think the story is more amusing than truthful , but it has point , and shows how different statements of a case may reach the same end . Several days ago , a white man was arraigned before a colored justice on charges of killing a man and stealing a mule . Wal , said the justice , de facks in dis case shall be weighed wid carefulness , an ef I hangs yer , taint no fault ob mine . Judge , you have no jurisdiction only to examine me . Dat sorter work longs ter de raigular justice , but yer seel sbeen put on as a special . A special hez a right to make a mouf at S preme court ef he chooses ter . Do the best for me you can , judge .

FOR YOUNG READERS SONG OF THE PALM LEAF FAN . BY MISS M . K . BKHNKTT . [ Many of our girls aud boys may like to copy neatly , ln black or colored Ink , on tlie smooth spaces of a palm-leaf fan , the beautiful poem by Miss Bennett , as here given . The gift of such a fan would be a pretty souvenir of the Mummer . An al-bum-fan could be made by inducing friends to copy each a stanza , and sign their initials . —St . Nicholas . 7 Swing , swing , lightly swing , . This yellow , stiff and sun-dried thing ; Each breeze It makes a tale shall slug . Far-off in sunny tropic lands , The palm-bush lifted from the sands A hundred out-spread , spiny hands , — Tnat sunned them ln the torrid rays , Stretching their veins In radiate ways , And strengthening In the noon-day blaze . But other hands , one morning tide , Dark hands with shining si eel supplied . Despoiled them of tlielr growing pride . Behold the great leaves all laid low . Stiffened and dead beneath tlie glow Of that same sun that nu...
THE PIG'S PENNY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
THE PIGS PENNY HOW IT BOUGHT A TOWN LOT . It was the pig did it . The bigger that pig grew the more he sqilealed , and the less he seemed to like his pen . Ben knew it , but for all that he wondered how it came to pass that he should find that pig in the village street , half way down to the tavern . Out of the pen into the barnyard , and out of that into the street when the gate was open . Wont I have a time getting him home ! There was little doubt of that , for the pig felt that it was his duty to root as he went , and he refused to walk quietly past any . good opportunity to thrust his snub nose into something . Ben worked , and so did the pig . Hullo ! What s that ? The pig had turned up a clod of earth with something sticking on it , and Ben sprang forward to pick it up . It s a cent ! It was round ; it was made of copper ; it was a coin of some kind ; but it was black and grimy , and Ben rubbed hard to clean it . I never saw a cent like that before . I cant even read what it ...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 August 1880
MISCELLANEOUS M . JULES RIEFFEL . THE WORK OF A FRENCH AGRICULTURIST . The French correspondent of the FARMERS REVIEW sends the following under date July 15 : Silver and golden weddings are the order of the day ; but rarely has a jubilee been better merited , or more fittingly honored , than that just held at Nozay , in the department of the Lower Loire , to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the founder of the agricultural school of GrandJouan—M . Jules Rieffel . Antieus renewed his vigor by touching mother earth ; men of energy and of progress fortify their determination and confidence , when reading the biography of such a veteran as M . Rieflel , who has worked his way to success , and who never recognized such word as fail . His life is a battle and a march ; it is more—it is a brilliant example of what individual effort , united to scientific skill , can accomplish , not only for self , but for the amelioration of immediate inhabitants and mankind at large . M . Rieffel has...
