A what ? exclaimed tbe person addressed . * J Why , I . mean to say , continued Harry Hunt , that there is a certain young lady ln the village , who , should we chance to meet her , would surely carry yonr very suscept- : ible heart by storm . In fact , I would have lost my own had it not been previously engaged . However , Fred , hurry up , or we shall miss the boat . These twe very fast friends little knew , as they talked so unconcernedly about the young lady , that she would so soon and so deeply affect the even tenor of their lives , and sow in one of their hearts the seeds of jealousy . Let me describe , if possible , the characteristics of these young men . Fred Grant was one of those easy , good-natured individuals , who take the word as they find lt , -and do not care to meet any obstacles in their path ; but if they should , would either quietly retire , o...

1 CMCTLTPRAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 12 September 1868
AGRICULTURAL. Agricultural Schools. President CHADBOURNE , of the Wisconsin University, in an article in the Wisconsin Farmer , endeavors to point out the elements that are making the Massachusetts Agricultural College, at Amherst, successful. The first named is permanency of organization , the trustees being elected by the Legislature , but holding office for life if tbey choose. The State Board of Agriculture acts as a Board of Visitors , but has no vote . The second element named Is the broad view in regard to education taken by tbe Trustees . The course of study is most liberal , while agriculture is kept constantly before the student. The third and most important element is the condition of Massachusetts in reference to scientific agriculture. The soil is hard, but yields generously vo high cultivation . Produce sells for so high a price in the home markets that the use of costly fertilizers pays , as does a course of farming that would ruin a Western farmer with cheap and fert...

Ill , wetake the following direct tions ; . ::. • __ • ¦ V ; vf ; * Hogs- should be grained lightly la the ; Winter , and have free access to lashes or charcoal ; and as soon-as- the ground becomes soft in the Spring they should have a lot or yard where they cab be at liberty to root as much as they choose . They root for somethlpg that their nature requires . I have frequently noticed v ^ here tho subsoil is clay tttey would-requehtly root down to it and eat It . I suppose they eat it because there is something gritty in it . In Winter , the ground being frozen , they subsist entirely on what Is given them , and if fed nothing bat corn , and plenty of it , they become fevered and foundered . If slaughtered in this condition , they are but a mass of disease and unfit for food . Raw potatoes arc good . for hogs in Winter , and they are fond of them . They...

HORTICDLTDRAL . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 12 September 1868
HORTICDLTDRAL . Management of Bulbs . Flowering bulbs which have grown in the same place for three or four years should be taken up as soon as the tops have decayed and replanted in deeply tilled , well manured soil . The usual practice with half-hardy , and tender bulbs Is to take them up as soon tbe leaves turn yellow , dry them partially in the snn and keep them secure from frost until Spring- Even hardy bulbs arc improved in vigor by being taken up , slightly dried and set out in September or October . Persons who are not in the habit of managing bulbs are apt to forget or neglect planting at the right time and on this account , it is in many cases the best way to take np the bvlbs and transplant them immediately , taking care to prepare the soil . properly for their reception . Bulbs may be set out at different periods during the Fall in order to produce a succession of flowers . There are three kinds of plants which are said to have bulbous roots , —those which are solid and w...

Complaints of Swindling Advertisers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 12 September 1868
Complaints of Swindling Advertisers . The following two letters , complaining of being deceived by advertisers in the columns of THE WESTEBN RUBAL last Spring , explain themselves . We give place to them , because it is the last thing we would do to admit , knowingly , an advertiser who would not strictly , fulfl . ll his agreements , and we think we exercise as careful guardianship as publishers are able , ordinarily , to do . There are all sorts of dodgesresorted to , to obtain money , and sometimes we are deceived when we little expect It . We had supposed , until the reception of the complaints below , that the parties in question fulfilledr their promises strictly , in sending their respective articles , whether they were really worth tbe money . asked for them , or were worthless : FLBASAHT V- LLBT , IOWA . .

Western State Fairs . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 12 September 1868
Western State Fairs . On Tuesday of next week the Michigan State Fair commences at Detroit . The indications now ^ r . highly favorable , and we see no reason why tills Fair should not be one of the most-uccessful ever held in the State . Although Detroit Is situated at one edge of the State , the facilities for reaching It by both railroad and water , are unusually good , and fits location makes a large attendance of visitors from Ontario , Ohio and Indiana more probable than if the Fair were held at any other point . R . F . JOHNSTONE , 180 Jefferson Avenue , Detrolt , the Secretary of the State Agricultural Society , may be addressed as to entries of artlcles for exhibition . The Ohio State Fair will commence oil Monday , September 21 st , at Toledo . This will be the first State Fair ever held in the Northwestern part of the - ttate . and with the fine railroad and lake , connections of Toledo there is no reason to fear tbat it will fall below the usual high standard of excellen...
