NIAGARA ELECTRICAL POWER : [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
NIAGARA ELECTRICAL POWER : Miracles in electricity are expected . But the harness- ^ ing of the great power of Niagara Falls so that it can be used in New York City— -452 miles away—though it has been talked about for a year or more , comes like a miracle upon the attention of the public when the demonstration is actually made . A great exposition of electrical apr pliances was opened in New York May 4 . Gov . Morton touched a button which fired a gun in San Francisco , another button gave a like report of itself in Augusta ; Maine * and another resppnded iri a similar way in New Orleans and another at St . Paul . The current of electricity was generated in Niagara and transmitted over the Postal telegraph . A cable dispatch was transmitted around the world—sent by Chauncey M . Depew . It went first by cable to Lisbon , then through the Mediterranean and the Suez Canal and the Red Sea to Aden ; thence to Ceylon and Australia , returning by the way of the Cape of Good Hope , the Afri...
MR . BRICEON HARD TIMES . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
MR . BRICEON HARD TIMES . MR . B rice who lives in New York City and yet by some hocus pocus manages to represent Ohio in the United States Senate , has been airing his views on the : financial question . In answer to a question as to how we are to get over the hard times , he takes the bull by the horns in the following remarkable statement : Hard times ? That is a relative term . Some particular standard of time is in the mind of him who asks that question . Generally speaking we are in the best times this country ¦ ever knew . This frank arid ingenuous statement is quite refreshing , coming from a gentleman of as many twists and turns as Calvin $ Brice . Relatively speaking these are the best of times for Brice , and such as he—and it is easy to see why he wishes to keep them where they are . Generally speaking , however , they were never worse , as every reader of this paper can testify , and Mr . Brice s whole statement of the situation is no nearer correct as regards the gener...
PRIVATEERS NOT FIRATES . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
PRIVATEERS NOT FIRATES . Spain found herself brought up with a short turn in the matter of the privateer Coriipetitor , the crew of which were conderiined to death as pirates . The Competitor was in all probability engaged in giving aid and succor to the enemies of Spain , but this did not justify the extreme measures which the court martial was about to carry out when a peremptory message from Secretary Olney brought matters to a standstill . Both England and the United States stood ready to interfere and prevent the surirmary execution which was against the general principles of international law and the treaties between Spain and the United States . The law in the case is contained in what is known as the Protocol of 1871 , which declares : No citizen of the United States residing in Spain , her adjacent islands or her ultramaririe : possessions , charged with acts of sedition , treason or conspiracy against the in- stitutions , the public security , the integrity of the territor...
CRIME IN CHICAGO [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
CRIME IN CHICAGO A murder and attempted robbery occurred in broad daylight on one of the principal thoroughfares of this city last week , and the murderers escaped scot-free . The police have been collecting all the known criminals within the city limits , and say with some pride that a finer collection of crooks and criminals was never seen , but they have riot found the murderer , and before long this fine lot of habitual criminals will have to be turned loose again upon , the community . Is it not a miscalled civilization that permits such accretions of crime in the great centers of population . The country dwellers are indeed fortunate , for there is no criminal class in the country . Perhaps one great reason for the growth of such a class in the cities may be found in the effect of evil associations on children . The children of decent and honest parents are often corrupted by the evil surroundings of city life A strong movement is being made to counteract this state of things ...

Woman arid Her Domain [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
Woman arid Her Domain NATURE . As a fond mother , when the day is o er , Leads by the hand her little child to bed , Half willing , half reluctant to be led , And leaves his broken plaything on the floor , Still gazing at thein through the open door , Nor wholly reassured and comforted By promises of others in their stead , Which , though more splendid , may not please , . him more ; So Nature deals with us , and takes away Our playthings , one by one , and by the hand Leads us to rest so , gently that we go Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay , Being too full of sleep to understaiid How far the unknown transcends the what we know . —Henry W . Longfellow . A LUNCH WITH THE POET LONGFELLOW . When on a visit to the United States some years ago , says Howard Paul , in May Table Talk , I was so fortunate as to be taken to the home , at Cambridge , near Boston , of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow , whose works are as popular in England as they are in his native land . My cicerone was a di...

ADVICE TO YOUNG WIVES . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
ADVICE TO YOUNG WIVES . We hear it said that romance ends at the altar . What a poor shallow little stream must be the love of one who can indorse that . sentiment . I believe in true marriage , the romance of courtship is but the prelude of the poetry of life that will continue through time and eternity . But what a true symbol the dried up stream is , of so many married lives . Not always because the current is shallow , for it is often turned aside into new channels by cruel , thoughtless words and acts . I have heard some women say that they did ; not want , their husbands to remain lovers . The true gentleman never makes any public display of his affection , but treats his wife or- sweetheart ; with kind courtesy . I will say I am as fond of the little attention of the husband as I ever was of the lover , and think life is very beautiful . There are not many days from early spring until late fall , that I do not have some bit of beauty brought me from the woods or fields to dec...
A Hundred Million iri Gold ! [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
A Hundred Million iri Gold ! HOW A TIMELY RESERVE WILL SAVE A GOV ERNMENT OR A BATTLE OR A LIFE . A nation in danger : The United States , the strongest government on earth , almost on the verge of bankruptcy ! That was the cry a few months ago . A strange state of affairs . Our people wealthy with uncounted millions ; the country rich with treasure almost beyond calculation ; but business at a standstill all ready for a panic ; the government credit in danger of collapse for want of a hundred million ; and Uncle-Sam borrowing money to tide over an emergency , as a poor man pawns his watch . What was the trouble ? There was plenty of gold , ten times more than was heeded , but where was it ? Everywhere except in the treasury—the place that needed it most . It couldnt help the government until it was in the treasury . There was the weak spot ; and nobody was sure it could be mended in time . Would the gold reach the treasury before it collapsed ? That was the question . It did reach ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 14 May 1896
THE TIRED MOTHER . You little , tease . the mother said , Go wash your face and go to bed . From morn till night you do annoy ; I sometimes wish I had no boy . Mere thoughtless words , but they sank deep ! The little one . sobbed himself io sleep , While the tired mother still toiled on , Until at last her task was done . With rest comes thought ; with thought comes tears ; And , as she views the passing years , So full of care , so little joy , She goes and falls beside her boy . And pours : her soul in prayer to Groa , That he would help her bear the load , And give her grace to overcome , Give greater strength , a brdled tongue . Her prayer has reached the Throne of Grace ; She rises with a radiant face , And , as she bends to kiss her boy , The tear-stained face lights up with joy . The little form turns in the bed : I love mamma , he gently said , For , in his dream ,, with mother s face , An angel bends , with heavenly grace . —Housekeeper .

8 y EDGAR , U . W / VK , 6 ^ Ai ^ We are Ten Travelers . There is the Merry Traveler , the Morose Traveler , the Clerical Traveler , the Gipsy Traveler , the Chronic Traveler , the Casual Traveler , the Student Traveler , the Aimless Traveler , the Commercial Traveler , the Vagabond Traveler . How we came to know each other is no matter . We meet at times at my own apartments in a quaint old inn , beside a cavernous fireplace , into which countless now sightless eyes have for centuries peered , and in a pleasant way we re-live pur pilgrimings , or recount those rbmances of others which have touched our hearts and tarried there . In this old room , with its brown rafters , decrepit floor and little , high dormer windows , like the portholes of an old frigate , we seem to become almost one in this kindly companionship . We are so much one that when my guests have departed I sit here by the old fireplace , where friendly voices and presences linger , and set down as best I may the plea...
