MY SHEAVES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

MY SHEAVES . The time for tall is past , and night lias come , The last and saddest of the harvest eves ; Worn out with labor , long and wearisome , Drooping and faint the reapers hasten home , Each laden with bis sheaves . Last of the laborers , Thy feet I gain . Lord of the harvest ! and my spirit grieves That I am burdened not so much with grain As with the heav-r . jss of heart and brain ; Master , behold my sheavesl Full weU I know I have more tares than wheat . Brambles and flowers , dry stalks and withered leaves ; Wnerefore I blush and weep , as at Thy feat I kneel down reverently and repeat , Master , behold my sheavesl Few , light and worthless , yet their trifling weight , Through all my frame a weary aching leaves ; For long I struggled with my helpless fate , And stayed and tolled till it was dark and Ikte , Yet these are all my sheaves . And yet I gathered hope and strength anew ; For well I know Thy patient love perceives Not what I did , but what I strove to do ; And...

CHILD'S COT . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

CHILDS COT . Among the donations sent to the Cot through the Kitty Clover Club , one was accompanied by the following touching little story , which we know will set many of our young friends thinking what they can do during this New Year towards alleviating others misery , and making somebody s lot happier and brighter . Five dollars , given through the Kitty Clover Club to the Child s Cot , in memory of little Lizzie Johnson . Now , children , I knew this little girl , and I want to tell you something about her . She did not have a fair skin and soft , glossy ringlets as you have . Her skin was black , and her hair was coarse and kinky ; but in place of these God gave her a very white soul . She was contented to be as she was made , for when some naughty little white girl told her she was nothing but a little black nigger , she said , Well , if God had not liked her black , He would not have made her so . Lizzie had a bright , intelliaent mind , and a sweet disposition , and these ...

In the postal service of the whole country about 55 , 000 persons are engaged . This statement , at the outset , gives some idea of the magnitude of the post-office business of the United States .

THE SHEAF THE OLD BARNS TENANTRY . MY B . P . TAYLOR . The rooster stalks on the mangers ledge . He has a tall line a . sclmetar s edge . A marshal s plume on his afghan neck , An admiral s stride on his quarter deck . He rules the roost and he walks the bay With a dreadfulooldand a Turkish way , Two broadsides fires with his rapid wings This sultan proud , of a line of kingsOne guttural laugh , four blasts of horn , Five rusty syllables rouse the morn ! The Saxon lambs ln their woolen tabs Are playing school with tbe a , b , abs ; A , e ! r . O ! All the cattle spell Till they make the blatant vowels tell . And half a laugh whinny fills the stalls When down in the rack the clover falls . A dove Is waltzing round his mate , Two chevrons black on his wings of slate . And showing off with a wooing note Tho satin shine of his golden throatIt ls Ovids Artof Love re-told Ina binding fine of blue and gold ! Ah , the buxom girls that helped the boys , The nobler Helens of humbler Troys—As ...
