LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

LITERARY IM GROWING OLD . My days pass pleasantly away : My nights are blessed with sweetest sleep , I feel no symptoms of decay , I have no cause to mourn or weep ; My foes are Impotent and shy , My friends are neither false nor cold ; And yet of late I often sigh—I m growing old . My growing talK of olden times , My growing thirst for early nevra , My growing apathy to rhymes , My growing love of easy shoes , My growing hate of crowds and noise , My growing fear of catching cold , All tell me In the plainest voice—I m growing old ! —John O . Saxe .

HORACE McLEAN . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

HORACE McLEAN . From Cassells Family Magazine . ( Continued from page 123 . ) CHAPTER XI . Horace McLean followed the circus manager from the huge kitchen , and crossing a passage , the latter threw open the door of a small room opposite , which , at the first glance , appeared to be as full of people as it was of tobacco-smoke . On his eyes becoming accustomed , however , to the dense atmosphere , Horace perceived that the company to which he was about to be presented amounted to but seven . This is Mr . Horatio McLean , ladies and gentlemen , began Mr . Jenkins , taking a liberty with Horace s name , which he had inquired while crossing the passage— a gentleman who has engaged to play the violin for the bears slang whilst we stay in this town here . —My wife , sir , the once celebrated Mademoiselle Fereigno , of Drury Lane . The Jady thus introduced ( who had merely been one of the inferior opera dancers at the theater in question ) made an elaborate courtesy , and expressed herse...

THE GORGEOUS DRUM MAJOR [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE GORGEOUS DRUM MAJOR The drum major is probably , after nil , the noblest work of God . He always plays an important part in processions and parades , but yesterday he was in his grandest mood , the observed of all observers . To properly photograph the drum major would require acomplexuse of vivid coloring . The plain black with which the face of type is bedaubed can convey no conception of his magnificence . A description of the glorious creature should be printed in red ink on a bright yellow back-ground , to be at all efficacious or truthful to nature . Ignorant and misinformed people have been led to suppose that the demonstration yesterday was to enable the Sir Knights Templar to show what they could do in the way of a display . This is a great mistake . It was gotten up in order that the drum major might have an opportunity to prove his greatness as an institution . Twenty-five or thirty thousand uniformed Knights were sandwiched between the hundred or so drum majors , to ...

THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE HOME THE DREAMS OF YOUTH . I built me a vessel long years ago , And I fitted It out like the galleys of old ; Its sails were as white as the fresh-fallen snow , And its bows were resplendent with crimson and gold . Its bulwarks were firm , and Its masts strong and tall , And a gay-colored pennon on high was spread ; The beauty of Youth lent a charm to It all , And an Image of Hope was its proud figure-head . I launched it one morn In the Spring of the year . When the breezes were low , and the sunbeams were bright ; And 1 , ln the pride of my youth , had no fear Of the strength or the waves , or the gloom of the night . So I dreamed of tho riches ray galley would bring From the lauds where no bark had been over before ; But the Summer passed by . and Spring wore round to Spring , And my vessel returned not , alas , to the shore ! At length one dark Autumn it came back to me , But its masts were all broken . Its bows were bare ; Its bulwarks were covered with growth of the sea , ...

FOR YOUNG READERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS THE DRAGON-FLY . Dragon-fly , dragon-fly , where have you been . Skimming the pools where the rushes are green , Darting through bulrushes , brushing my wings , Through the flags where tho frog , with bis croaking voice , sings . The white water-Illy , all smiling , looked up , And begged me to rest ln her ivory cup ; And the water-rat said , Wont you come to my house . And have dinner with me and my cousin , the mouse ! Next the kingfisher hoped I would call at his nest ; And the butterfly whispered , I must be her guest ; She had taken snug lodgings away In the wood , In a wonderful foxglove that by an oak stood , So lofty , so spacious , and lined with such care , With crimson cloth , broidered with pattern so rare . But I said , Thank you , friends , not to-day , not to-day ; I must go and watch Milllcent busy at play . —Julia Ooddard . in Little Folks . A SENSITIVE SPIRIT Mrs . Black Spanish laid four beautiful white eggs , from which , after a good deal of te...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

MISCELLANEOUS CLOCKS AND WATCHES . It is a curious fact that the practical arts reach their highest degree of development in the newest of the world s civilizations . It has taken more than two thousand years to perfect the art of clock or watch making , —from the time of Ptolemy to the present , and from Egypt in the east to the United States in the west . The first clock of which we have any account worthy the name was invented in Alexandria about 245 B . C . One hundred years later the water clock was introduced into Rome . The water clock was a very rude and a very imperfect timepiece . - Beckmann describes it as follows : The water issued drop by drop through a hole of the vessel and fell into another , in which a light body that floated marked the height of the water as it rose and , by these means , the time that had elapsed . At first the water flowed out rapidly , and afterwards more slowly , so that the clock required much regulation . The water clock , with slight variati...

THE SHEAF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880

THE SHEAF . . REPORTS from Ohio and Pennsylvania are that the wool growers are holding out for higher prices for their fleeces . Only a very small per centage of the clip of 1880 has been disposed of . What has been sold was taken at from 40 to 43 c per lb . The farmers pretty generally demand 50 c , and seem determined to have it or not sell . ELSEWHEBE we publish a letter from Mr . Robert P . Porter , of the census department of statistics of wealth , debt and taxation . It is in relation to strictures that the REVIEW lately made about some wool statistics given to the public . Mr . Porter s explanation places the fault with Mr . Killebrew . Com . of Agriculture of Tennessee . Now if Mr . K s book of some 300 pages contains many statements as wide of the mark as thiB one concerning the wool clip , or made up of statistics gathered ten years ago , then Mr . K . is not quite up to the mark as ian Agricultural statistician . We may add that from the fact that Mr . Porter was connecte...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880

AGRICULTURAL SILK CULTURE . —No . 3 . THE MULBERRY LOU , or Lou-Sang , is originated from the province of Lou , in China . It was introduced into France by Mr . Camille Beauvais . It has the largest leaves , producing the same average of fine silk as the Moretti , say fourteen to fifteen pounds for one pound of cocoons . It thrives . marvelously in our Middle and Southern States . In Kansas , for example , the cuttings planted in April were six to eight feet high in July , with a loss of only five to ten per cent . In Mississippi such cuttings reached the height of ten feet , with leaves twelve feet by eight or ten . Plant them as dwarfs , six feet apart in the row , the rows being twelve to sixteen feet distant from each other . All these trees and cuttings can be planted as soon as the first frost has stopped their growth , till May or June , after picking the leaves for the worms . Best time , the Fall , until March or April . PRODUCTION OF THE MULBERRY TREE . Almost every new be...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880

HORTICULTURAL POPULAR APPLES IN MICHIGAN . The well prepared list of apples in the late report of the Michigan Pomological Society , gives the following sorts marked with double stars , indicating their high popularity in that State . The list contains 236 varieties , all of which have been more or less tested there . The State is divided into five districts , and the Red Astrachan is the only one that receives the high commendation of double stars in all ; Baldwin , Duchess of Oldenburgh , Northern Spy , and Red Canada have double stars in four districts ; Golden Russet of N . Y ., Jonathan , Maiden s Blush , St . Lawrence and Wagner in three out of the five ; and Hubbardston Nonesuch , Rhode Island Greening , Ohio Nonpariel and Tallman Sweeting in two out of the five . All receive single stars where the double mark is not awarded , indicating in such districts a fair degree of popularity . In the additional notes the Baldwin is stated to lack hardiness , to drop its fruit badly , ...

ENTOMOLOGICAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL . THE MELON PLANT LOUSE . There has been great complaint among our gardeners this season in reference to a plant louse , that is doing much injury to the nutmeg and muskinelon vines , and also to the cucumber vines . In some instances they have almost entirely destroyed entire fields of vines . In some instances the real culprit has been overlooked , and other species , even insect friends , have been condemned as the cause of the mischief . In one case I have received the larvae , pupae and perfect insect of a lady bug ( coccinella novem-notata ) as the insects doing the injury . In this last case l can not » ay say positively that the plant lice were the culprits , but from the character of the injury done , and the presence of the lady bugs , I feel satisfied such was the fact . This species varies slightly , according to the situation in which it is found—if , as I am inclined to think is thc case , the dif ferent varieties belong to the same species , Whether our ...
