A GOOD SUGGESTION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
A GOOD SUGGESTION The Boston Advertiser proposes as a remedy for the extreme inconvenience arising from the want of small change fit for remittance by mail , that open money orders be issued , stamped by the Government , payable to bearer , for 10 and 25 cents , to cost / the purchaser 11 and 26 cents respectively . These orders to be issued to postmasters as stamps are , and accounted tor accordingly . To prevent their circulation asfractionalcurrency , payment might be limited fecj * a fortnight , or thirty days from date , and made payable when sold at some particular postoffice . The suggestion is an excellent one , and we should only be in favor of going a little farther and issuing orders for 50 and 75 cents at a cost of 52 and 77 cents respectively , also for $ 1 . 00 , at a cost of $ 1 . 08 . Every one has experienced much trouble and annoyance in remitting small sums by mail , since the substitution of silver for fractional currency . The plan would have the additional adva...
A FOOD EXHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
A FOOD EXHIBITION An international food exhibition is to be held in London during the week ending October 20 th , the objects of which are said to be to bring prominently before all classes of the public and in a comprehensive manner , the multitudinous articles applicable for food in both the animal and vegetable kingdoms—British , colonial and foreign—together with the various modes of producing and preparing the same for consumption , embracing all the different processes of manufacture , preservation and cooking . The design of this novel exhibition is certainly a good one . It is rather a failing of fairs and expositions that while they serve well as advertisements and shows , profitable in a degree to their promotors , they do not entirely satisfy , as rule , in reBpect to the good acccomplished in behalf of the public . But the exhibition proposed goes right to a practical issue , and must prove one ofthe most useful that could be devised , tending to make known to people of ...
FARMING" OUT AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
FARMING OUT AGRICULTURE Our French correspondent writes that a very important company has been founded , and which promises to have important results on the agriculture of France , and may lead to an application of the principle advantageously elsewhere . The com . pany prepares manure , having night soil for base , mixed with mineral or bone phosphates , ammoniacal and potash salts . The aim is , to secure uniformity in the richness of the fertilizers . The company undertakes to apply itself its own manures , either on lands it has rented or leased . At present it has 5 , 000 acres under these arrangements , situated in the department of the Seme and Marne , and not at all of a rich nature . It is the principle of farming agriculture , just as is applied to railways , canals , mines and banks , and conies to the aid of cultivators who want capital in the shape of manures , stock and machinery . The company groups its holdings , so that each can assist the other , and judiciously em...

CAUSTIC CRITICISM . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
CAUSTIC CRITICISM . Popular Science Monthly for September has a bold and caustic editorial , which has for one- of its texts an address delivered before the graduating class of the University of Michigan in July last . The address was delivered by the Bight Reverend Samuel T . Harris , D . D ., Bishop of Michigan , and in it , as the editor says , the eloquent speaker did not fail to improve the occasion in the interest of all collegiate traditions . Knowing that they are under indictment by the common sense of the age , he came to their defense with a kind of fanatical desperation : Ordinarily , says Dr . Harris , so far as education is concerned—and we are confining our discussion to that now—the only path to true , completed manhood 1 B through a thorough course of educational training . Latin and Greek and the higber mathematics , rhetoric and logis and mental and moral philosophy , these are the useful studies in education . Again he says : It is a cruel wrong to the student to...
HOW IT HAPPENED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
HOW IT HAPPENED EDITOR FARMERS REVIEW : You unintentionally did me a great injustice in an article recently published in the FARMERS REVIEW . In the flrst place I am in no way connected with the Agricultural statistics of the census , and claim no special knowledge about sheep husbandry . When in Nashville , Tenn ., a short time ago , the Hon . J . B . Killebrew , A . M ., Ph . D ., Commissioner of Agriculture statistics and mines for the State of Tennessee , presented me with the proof sheets of a work of three hundred pages then in the course of publication , on Sheep Husbandry , published by the State of Tennessee . Writing as I did , from Nashville , I had no means of verifying the Professor s statement which will be found on page 16 of the book , precisely as given in my Nashville letter . I have this morning called Mr . Dodge s attention to the error , and he says that Mr . Killebrew based his statement , that the United States produced 100 , 000 , 000 pounds of wool on the ce...

INSURANCE ITEMS FIRES FROH STEAM THRESHERS . —D . W . K ., of Casstown , O ., writing Aug . 21 st , reports a fire near that place caused by a spark from a steam thresher lodging in a pile of fresh straw . Thence it extended to a good barn containing 700 bushels of wheat , a reaper and other farming utensils . $ 1 , 200 insurance on the barn ; none on the contents . AUGUST 23 d , while threshing on the farm of Mr . Hendrick , near LaFayette . Ind ., a spark from the engine communicated to several stacks of wheat and oats , destroying them and also the separator , entailing a loss of $ 1 , 500 , &lt; upon which there was no insurance . In last week s Sheaf there was a very sensible suggestion , as to the uBe of steam threshers , and the necessary precautions required to secure safety . The wire screens tor arresting sparks are a positive necessity , as well as the removal ofthe engine from immediate proximity to stacks or fresh straw . The engine should be at least thirty fee...

LITERARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
LITERARY . DRIFTED OUT TO SEA . I 1 YROSB HARTWICK THORPK . ( Author of Curlew Must Not Ring To-Night . ) Two little ones , grown tired of play . Roamed by the sea , one Summer day , Watching the great waves come and go , Prattling , as children will , you know . Of dolls and marbles , kites and strings ; Sometimes hinting at graver things . At last they spied within their reach An old boat cast upon the beach . Helter skelter , with merry din . Over Its sides Ihey clambered in—Ben , with his tangled nut-brown hair , Bess , with her sweet face flushed and fair . Rolling ln from the briny-deep . Nearer , nearer , the great waves creep Higher , higher , upon the sands , Reaching out with their giant hands , Grasping the boat ln boisterous glee . Tossing lt up and out to sea . The sun went down mid clouds of gold ; Night came , with footsteps damp and cold ; Day dawned ; the hours crept slowly by ; And now , across tbe sunny sky , A black cloud stretches far away . And shuts the golden...
HORACE McLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
HORACE McLEAN From Cassell s Family Magazine . ( Continued from page 139 . ) Well , no , its not exactly to say lost . I suppose if th show was sold up thered be a good deal towards it , for th horses is good uns . But then , do you think , sir , as the gafferd ever let hisself be sold up , and his wife and the twins and Miss Adele made beggars ? Trust him for that ! Besides , you see , Katie—who has a deal of gumption , for all she looks so meek and quietrlike—she s been at him often and often about her money , and has told him shed go to law for it when she come of age . But lately he s done naught but laugh at her ; and he says she cant prove as sue owns a penny , for there arnt no papers of any sort . He pretends , too , that if there was anything , hed be th heir to it , seem * as her mother died without a will , and he was her brother . Of course , that cant be true , but poor Katie , she doesnt understand the rights of it by law , and I believe now shed be willing enough to l...
A DETECTIVE'S STORY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
A DETECTIVES STORY There is a story told of a lady and gentleman traveling together on an English railroad . They were strangers to each other . Suddenly the gentleman said : Madame , I will trouble you to look out of the window a few minutes ; I am going to make some changes in my wearing apparel . Certainly , sir , she replied with great politeness , rising and turning her back upon him . In a short time he said : Now , madame , my change is completed , and you may resume your seat . When the lady turned she beheld her male companion transformed into a dashing lady with a heavy vail over her face . Now , sir , or madame , whichever you are , said the lady , I must trouble you to look out of the window , for I also have some changes to make in my apparel . * Certainly , madame , and the gentleman in lady s attire immediately complied . Now , sir , you may resume your seat . To his great surprise ,-on resuming his seat , the gentleman in female attire found his lady companion transf...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 2 September 1880
MISCELLANEOUS HOW TO MANAGE AN ENGINE . The introduction of steam engines for farm purposes in this country , leads us to see the necessity of good instruction to those to whom they are entrusted . The several fatal accidents that have occurred from the bursting of boilers to farm engines this season , shows that those who have them in charge are not always competent to fill the position . The following instructions , issued by the Manchester , England , Steam Association , contain many useful suggestions to our farm engineers , though they were , perhaps , intended for those who run more elaborate and powerful engines : GETTING UP STEAM . —Warm the boiler gradually . Do not get up steam from cold water in less than six hours . If possible , light the fires over night . Nothing turns a new boiler into an old one sooner than getting up steam too quickly . It hogs the furnace tubes , leads to grooving , strains the end plates , and some times rips the rim seams of rivets at the bottom...
