We Don t Blame Them . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
We Don t Blame Them . The laboring men of all kinds and employments are organizing . They mean to get eight-hour days and fair pay . We cannot find fault with them for combining and standing by one another . Capital is strong in itself ,. and secures the support of many middlemen interested , more or less , in its investments . Its purposes and plans are pretty clearly defined and strongly pushed . But how about the producers ? With all other classes uniting for self protection and to maintain their rights and gain benefits , where will the farmers be if they remain idle ? The busy time of work is upon us , as farmers , and the importance of this thing ia liable to be temporarily lost sight of . We therefore mean to keep it before our readers . One evening now and one evening a month is not a great tax on time when the advantages are considered . Our CO-OPERATIVE CLUB affords a very simple method . If you have something better stick to it , use it , report to us itB operations as fa...
Slander Easy . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Slander Easy . It is dangerous to libel some persons . Tbey will promptly ply the law . It is readily seen to be unsafe in a business way to slander certain corporations . Those newspaper managers who have favors to ask of railway companies or who expect to solicit advertising of certain business houses are kept under wholesome restraint in their utterances . But it seems to he held by some editors that the United States Congress is a fit subject for all sorts of reckless libel . Most heedlessly a contemporary—we regret we must add agricultural —takes occasion of a good deed just done by the United States Senate , in squelching the bill to increase postage on seeds , to berate that body of our national legislators , as follows : It Is the oligarchical representatives of the States , not , like the House , the demooratic representative of the people . Its members are , for the most part , either the paid attorneys of railroads , national banks , and otto wealthy and unscrupulous corp...
Wrecking Industries . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Wrecking Industries . The man who kills another in cold blood is a murderer . It is alleged that Mr . Jay Gould is really the secret organizer and promoter of the strike . If this be true , then he is really guilty , in addi tion to that of wrecking commerce , of tb „ crimes - of lying , perjury , arson and murder . If , m reality , as alleo-pd i 7 ; fine work is at the bottom of the lite labor troubles , he is the most dangerous man m the oountry . The unsettling nf business has already cost the commerce of the country , in addition to the loss to railway corporations and the distress to laborers , more millions than he has piled up by his system of wrecking . A man proved guilty of such doing should be declared an enemy of the State , confined in the penitentiary and his propert y confiscated for the publio weal , to restore in some measure , the losses and relieve the misery he has caused .
- Importance of Sowing Seed Early . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
- Importance of Sowing Seed Early . Where the season permits , the seeds of some plants cannot be gotten in too early . This is necessary for the reason that there is a perpetual warfare between the would be usurping weeds and the regular crops . The hardiest will crush out the others , and man is compelled to bestow his assistance upon his favorites . But the assistance so tendered is expensive , and any method that enables him to advance his cjrops at the least cost will be of service in adding to his profits . The first plants that appear above the surface of the ground are stronger than those that follow , for as they seize upon the particles of earth and appropriate plant food they deprive the weaker ones of so much nutrition . Now , some weeds can endure quite a degree of cool weather , and sprout on the first favorable opportunity , while the seeds of many of the cultivated plants are slow in germination , and thus easily fall a prey to those that are stronger and further adv...

Eoad Making—Letter from Dr . Pennington . Many thanks for the interest you manifest and also to the many friends that co-operate with you in laboring t ° ra ? ke better the highways of Illinois . That so important a feature in the prosperity oi a State should have been so long neglected must be ascribed to some radical detect in our schools and to the men that should instruct and lead to a better and higher civilization . ,, In order to make good roads , after many years of experience , I am satisfied that it is not only necessary to secure tne proper grade and side ditches , with a iree drainage well secured , but also a central tile drain and one not less than from six to nine inches in Bize , according to tne quantity of water to be removed , should be laid , the depth depending on the security of an outlet .

Spring Plowing . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Spring Plowing . Spring plowing can be done at a time when the farmer may derive advantage from it , or it may be performed in such a manner as to be injurious . Any soil that is hot perfectly dry should not be touched with a plow . Wet soil cannot be pulverized , and every furrow turned oyer and exposed to the sun is the formation of lumps and clods that will remain to annoy the farmer until the frosts of next winter break them to pieces . If the land is well drained the soil will become dry enough to plow in a few days after a rain , but unless the soil is drained the plowing should be postponed until the earth can be turned over in such manner that it may be easily rendered fine by the use of the harrow . Many farmers have lost time working in lumps and clods , by being too early in plowing damp soil .

THE SPRING IS LATE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
THE SPRING IS LATE . She stood alone amidst the April fieldsBrown , sodden fields , all desolate and bare , — The spring is late , she said— the faithleBS springThat should have came to make the meadows fair . Their sweet South left too soon , among the trees The birds , bewildered , flutter to and fro . For them no green boughs wait—their memories Of last year s April had deceived them so . From neath a sheltering pine some tender buds Looked out , and found the hollows filled with snow On such a frozen world they closed their eyes ; ¦ When spring is cold , how can the blossoms blow ? She watched the homeless birds , the slow , sad spring The barren fields , and shivering , naked trees ; Thus God has dealt with me , hiB child , she said—I wait my spring-time and am cold like thee . To them will come the fulness of their time ; Their spring , though late , will make the meadows fair : Shall I , who wait like them , like them be blessed ? I am his own—doth not my father care ! —Louis...

YOUNG FOLKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
YOUNG FOLKS . GRANDMAS DAY DREAM . BY MBS , C . H . POTTEK . Over the way , just over the way There s a silvery sea ot daisies ; The bobolink swoops and dips his wings Then a song of delight he raises . Oh , lor a bath in that perfumed sea , It would bring my sweet youth back to mo It would soothe the pain that s so hard to bear And bring back the sunny hue to my hair Oh , for a bath in the daises I For tiB very true—ah , sadly true , ( Yet tis that which the sweet hope raises ) That I never began to grow sad and old Till I ceased to bathe in the daisies ! Tis only a step , just over the way , To try to reach it I surely may , Already I hear tbe humming ot bees Oh , Ill drain the cup of youth to its lees If I can but get to the daisies ! But then , I bethink me , sadly now , Could I live it all again—oh , how ? Having drawn so near to tho gleaming sea Of eternal youth I should surely be Glad and content ; nor seek to stay Times troublous tide in its onward way . Nay ; not een if I s...

Washing . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Washing . Young housekeepers will be interested in the following unusually explicit directions from Tlie Cook : —Washing is so common a thing that one might readily suppose every housewife familiar with the mysteries of it . And so they frequently are , so far , at least , as enables them to make things look clean , but how few can combine this cleansing process with the preservation of the articles which are washed . Almost invariably the same system is used in washing articles of every description . I have been told by a gentleman who has had much experience in hiring help for the laundry in hotels that it is exceedingly difficult to get good laundresses , even there , where there is instead of soda ; it saves soap , softens the hardest water , and does not in the least injure the texture of the linen . Colored muslins or lawns must be washed one by one in cold water . If they are very dirty the water must be lukewarm , but no more . But , above all , be careful not to use the sma...
Fans . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Fans . Headers will surely be interested in knowing something about the origin and history of that article of use and ornament , the fan . According to the learned Froissard , the fan originated from the necessity felt in all hot climates of something for keeping off flies , whether from the sacred offering in the temples , or from the faces and hands of the officiating priests . In China and India the original model of a fan was the wing of a bird . The fans of the high priests of Isis were in the form of a half circle , made of feathers of different lengths . Such , too , were the fans carried in triumphal processions , and which among the ancient Egyptians and Persians served as military standards in time of war . The fans carried by the Roman ladies during the Augustan age were not , like the most ancient Chinese fans , made in one piece , but were composed of little tablets of perfumed wood , specimens of which can be seen at the museums of Florence and Naples . The fans of the...
Scotch Retorts . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 24 April 1886
Scotch Retorts . Scotchmen are fond of an argument , and delight to pick flaws in an opponent s logic . Two blacksmiths were once conversing as to which was the first trade in the world . One insisted that it must have been gardening , and quoted from Genesis , Adam was put in the garden of Eden to dress it , and to keep it . Ay , John , retorted the other , who had stood up for his own trade ; but whae made the spades ? . The reply recalls an old story illustrative of the pride of a Highlander in his clan . A MacPherson and a MacDonald were disputing g &amp; to which of their respective clans was the oldest . The MacPherson , waxing emphatic in assertion , said : Why , mon , a MacPherson went ashore with Noah from the ark ! Well , that may be ; but he found a MacDonald there to tak him by the hand ! The Rev . Mr . Campbell , of Selkirk , was much annoyed by the dirty water of a brewery near the manse . He spoke to the brewer , a Mr . Haldane , about the nuisance , saying th...
