Coming Near Home . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
Coming Near Home . The strikes feel better in the distance . We rather enjoy reading the sensational dispatches from St . Louis or some remote place . Even a little eight-hour disturbance two or three miles off , at a rolling mill or car shop or a South side switchyard , partook more of comedy than tragedy . But when it was announced in our counting room last Friday that , owing to the freight-handlers strike of the Chicago , Milwaukee &amp; St . Paul railroad , our weekly supply of paper from the Winnebago Paper Mills , at Neenah , Wis ., could not be delivered , it did not seem altogether amusing . It was interesting for our Business Manager for a little while . Soon it was ascertained from the press rooms that we had enough to run that day . Mr . Althrop , of the Althrop Printing Company , who do our presswork , with his usual accommodation , offered to let us have some stock of a different dimension , that he happened to have on hand , but which could be cut down without...
The Grand Old Man . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
The Grand Old Man . The cable has brought us one of . lie most eloquent of the appeals yet made by Gladstone . It was in the form of a letter in lieu of an expected speech to his Midlothian constituency during tlie Easter recess . Speaking of tlie HomoRule bill he says : I have never known an occasion when a Parliamentary event so rang throughout the world as the introduction of this bill under the auspices of a British Government . From public meetings , and from the highest authorities in the colonies and America , from Capitals such as Washington , Boston , and Quebec , and from remote districts lying beyond the reach of all political exoitement , I receive conclusive assurances that the kindred people regard it with warm and fraternal sympathy . Our present effort is to settle on an adequate scale and once for all the long-vexed anil troubled relations between Great Britain and Ireland , which exhibit to us the one and only conspicuous failure of the political genius of our race...

Club We think our friends who have received our liberal seed distribution will be willing to do us and their neighbors this favor . «
The Story of a Watch . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
The Story of a Watch . We have already alluded to the peculiar justice administered sometimes in Chicago , as , for example , in the case of Justice Meech . It will be remembered that he was presented with a gold watch at a convivial gathering in some liquor saloon soon after acquitting an accused gambler . The attorney in the defense acted as spokesman in presenting the watch . The latter proved to be stolen property , taken from Mr . Nelson Rulison , and was finally identified and recovered by the owner . Rev . Dr . Kittredge took the name of Justice Meech , and the whole affair of the watch presentation , as a text , and preached a scathing sermon on judicial venality . Thereupon Justice Meech sued Dr . Kittredge for libel . It has not yet come to trial and probably , since the watch development , the just ass will be very careful not to push it to an issue in court . The last chapter of the rather interesting story is that members of the Board of Trade of Chicago have raised a s...
The Eight-Hour Move . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
The Eight-Hour Move . It is well for workingmen to have as much time as possible with their families . It is a good thing for them to have opportunity for reading . Any employment which is so constant as to make a slave of a man , whether self-imposed or from the conditions of a contract or from some generally accepted labor system , is a wrong . The practical question is , how shall such a wrong be righted ? There are some elements of the question which are self-evident . First , no workingman and no person has any right to stop another man who desires to work or to dictate to him his hours , nor to dictate to an employer beyond making a contract for himself . This principle cuts off all violent interference with business and property . Second , workingmen , however , have a perfect right to agree and follow a line of policy to accomplish their purpose . No one can compel them to labor if they are unwilling to do so . Third , if the workingmen of the country are sufficiently agreed...
Burnt Fences . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
Burnt Fences . There is a strange opposition in some quarters to the proposed aid to schools by the Federal Government . The original plan contemplated aid conditioned on active co-operation by the States and proportionate to the amount of illiteracy . The recent amendments offered in the House take away one of the best features of the bill by apportioning the aid according to the number of school children instead of the numbers who cannot read and write . The main intent of the originators of the measure was to help do away with the appalling illiteracy which is a menance to the very existence of the Government . If not needed , nothing whatever should be bestowed . If needed in self-protection and as opening the way for some proper qualification of voters for the duty of suffrage , then the aid should be bestowed where needed and in a manner to accomplish the result desired . Dr . Atticus G . Haygood , lately President of a college at Macon , Georgia , is a good exponent of the vi...
Change of Base . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
Change of Base . Many of our readers have sent inquiries concerning Devlin &amp; Eagle , whose announcement of a change of base was given last week . We have had occasion to call attention to the fact that they sell at wholesale prices . It is , perhaps , sufficient for us to state in the way of guaranty of the reliability of this house and the excellence of their goods , that the CO- OPEBATIVE CLUB make their grocery purchases of them . They deserve the support and patronage of farmers because they are endeavoring to supply articles directly and at reduced prices . It is well known that residents of smaller towns and of the country are the victims of middlemen , bend your orders by mail or call in person upon Devlin &amp; Eagle and you will be more than satisfied . Such is the experience of all of our readers who have tried them . Remember , the new address is 08 Wabash avenue . In our number for April 24 is a list of prices showing a few of the bargains offered . O...

The Finest mechanism . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
The Finest mechanism . A celebrated surgeon once said that he never stood in the presence of a body in the dissecting room without a feeling of awe and reverence , and well may every one do to remember the wonderful excellency of the house he lives in . The butterfly is beautiful and attractive in its aerial flight and its form is wonderfully adapted to its needs ; but the human body is as much superior in its delicacy of construction and adaptation to the needs of the being living in it as man is superior to the moth in length of days . When tills fine piece of mechanism gets out of repair , what is the best method to restore it to effective action again ? Why is it that the majority of people are not content to take Nature s simple plan and follow it ? Let us see what that plan is . ,. ., __ When the life-blood has made the circuit of tho arteries and veins—before re-entering tlie heart , to be started on its circuit anew—it spreads over tlie surface of tlie air-cells of the lungs...
Spring Diseases . —Their Eational Treatment . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
Spring Diseases . —Their Eational Treatment . We took occasion last week to refer to the benefits , for those who are feeling languid or nervously prostrated , of eirtilar exercise in the open air . A fine MIIOP on horseback before breakfast , these bright May mornings , is a good enoug h tonic for any man . But there are those who are so confined by their daily occupation that they cannot find Hie time for this nature s remedy , or they are shut up in city or village homes and have no opportunity for horseback riding . There are many more who hardly have the vigor remaining to undertake so heroic a regime as the before-breakfast ride . There are the tired mothers and—a full statement of facts must add—invalid daughters , and , indeed , many broken down men , who need some other prescription . We believe we are doing a kindness to such to direct their attention to the Oxygen treatment . In the hands of a skillful and experienced physician like Dr . F . L . Peiro , of Chicago , it ha...

NOBILITY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
NOBILITY . ALICES CAST . Trne worth is In being , not seeming—In doing each day that goes by Some little good—not in the dreaming Of great things to do by and by . For whatever men Bay in blindness , And spite of the fancies of youth . There s nothing BO kingly as kindness , And nothing BO royal as truth . We get back onr mete as we measure- ^ We cannot do wrong and feel right . Nor can we give pain and feel pleasure , For justice avenges each slight . The air for the wing of the sparrow , The bosh for the robin and wren . Bat always the path that is narrow And straight for the children of men . Tis not in the pages of story The heart of its ills to beguile , Though he who makes courtship to glory Gives all that he bath for her . mile , For when from her heighte be has won her Alas . it is only to prove That nothing s so sacred as honor . And nothing so loyal as lore . We cannot make bargains for blisses , Nor catch them , like fishes , in nets ; And sometimes the thing onr life mis...
Something She Hated . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 8 May 1886
Something She Hated . A shrewd old schoolmaster used to tell his pupils , after enforcing an important fact or lesson , Now go home and try to forget it—try as hard as you can . Of course , the effort would oblige ^ them to keep it in mind , though they might hate to . In this case an errand was forgotten —but the messenger seems to have carried a hint of it on her hands and face , without any effort at all . What is it , sissy ? said a Lake street grocery man to a little girl , who was swinging against the side of the counter , lolling out her tongue and looking timid . My ma sent me for sumpin . Well , what is it ? I dunno . Was it bread ? No sir ; she borrowed that of Mrs . Tiggons . Was it meat ? No , I spect it wasnt that , coz we ve got enough to look at it if anybody comes in , and that s all we has it for . It wasnt sugar ? My , no ! times is too hard for that , pa says , and I never couldnt forgot sugar no how , coz I like it . I guess it was sumpin I dont like , or maybe I...
