THE RED RIVER VALLEY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
THE RED RIVER VALLEY The FARMEHS REVIEW is favored with the following notes of a trip from Minneapolis far up the valley of the Red River , by one of our occasional correspondents , who traveled with the special purpose of reporting the actual quality of the crops , the condition of the people , the character of the farm improvements , and , as far as possible , to judge of the business future of that wonderful country about which so many almost fabulous tales have been told . If our readers will take a late map of the country referred to , and will follow the route of our correspondent , we doubt not that most of them will gain a clearer idea of the great wheat center of the future than they have ever had before . The letter is one of exact truthfulness , and was not written in the interests of railroad companies or land agents . Our correspondent says : I left Minneapolis on the 27 th ult . via the main line of the St . Paul , Minneapolis and Manitoba Railroad , making my first st...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
THE season has again arrived for the reporters and tourists to visit and write up the great wheat farms of Dalrymple and others , where reapers are counted by the hundred , engines and threshers by the score , and farm laborers by the thousands . It is all very nice reading ; it is grand , magnificent and all that , but what does it signify after all ? These letters simply excite a feeling of wonder because such enterprises are unusual . How much more beautiful is a region dotted with orchards , vineyards and groves of forest trees , with herds and flocks grazing in the open fields , and neat farm houses everywhere , the homes of happy families of intelligent , industrious and independent citizens , who render richer and more productive the lands they till , instead of impoverishing and robbing them !

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS IN a recent number of the FABMEBS EBVIBW we referred to the fact that the dividends paid to stockholders in stock insurance companies were in very many cases taken from the interest on the companies investments of their capital and assets . In an article which appeared in the Review ( New York ) of July 29 ult ., we find that this has been the case in a very marked degree , during the six months ending July 1 , 1880 , when the half yearly statement of the companies doing business in the State of New York to the Superintendent of Inaurance of that State were made public . In a review of the returns thus presented , the Review calls attention to the fact that the dividends were earned entirely by the investments of the companies . In the same journal we find a very valuable table showing the increase and decrease of the surplus of the New York companies d uring the first six months of this year . The ten companies showing the largest increase are : Companies . Increase...

HORACE McLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
HORACE McLEAN From Gassells Family Magazine . ( Continued from page 107 . ) CHAPTER X . She means the stars , proudly interpreted the father . You never did hear such fancies as she has , sir . She s not like other children , poor little thing ! and cant run about and play since she broke her back , about eighteen months ago . But , bless you , it seems as if the Almighty wanted to make it up to her by lettia her hear and see things as no one else sees and hears . Why , there isnt a thing in natur , if youll believe me , as hasnt something to say to her . The wind sighing and moaning , and the rain peltin against the winders , and the trees and rivers , and the green waving grass—they re all at it with their queer whisperin ways . Let s see , i what was it them two big elms was sayin to you t other day , Aggie ? • Hush , father , please . Dont lets tell I him about it , begged Aggie , shyly shrinking from revealing to a stranger the fanci-1 ful conceptions which she confided sol rea...

THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
THE HOME . ALPHABETICAL HEALTH RULES . The following simple rules are published for general circulation by the Ladies Sanitary Association of London : As soon as you are up , shake blankets and sheet ; Better be without slices , than sit with wet feet ; Children if healthy , are active , not still ; Damp beds and damp clothes will both make you Hi ; Eat slowly , and always chew your food well ; Freshen the air in your house where you dwell ; Garments must never be made too tight ; Homes will be healthy lf airy and light ; If you wish to be well , as you do , I ve no doubt , Just open the windows before you go out ; Keep your rooms always tidy and clean , Let dust on the furniture never be seen ; Much illness ls caused by tlie want of pure air ; Now to open your windows be ever your care . Old rags aud old rubbish should never be kept ; People should see that their floors are well swept ; Quick movements in children are healthy and right ; Remember the young can not thrive without li...

MISCELLANEOUS , [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
MISCELLANEOUS , HEALTH . COMMERCIAL , INDUSTRIAL , INDIVIDUAL—SHIP CANAL . The life blood of a nation consists of its commercial relations , ancl by this is meant exchange of all productions . The more extended these productions , and the means of exchange , the greater the prosperity of the country . In the great West and Northwest , containing immense rich prairies , which grow yearly millions of bushels of grain , nearly all interests depend on the success of our farming population , and in order that this large element of society may be prosperous , easy and cheap transportation for their products must be afforded . The monthly receipts of grain in the city of Chicago alone are over ten millions of bushels . The large facilities afforded by the complete systems of railroads and lake transportation lines , makes the delivery of these receipts , wherever desired , an easy matter at the present time , but the increase of this trade in the future promises to be even greater than in ...
