FARM AND GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

fARM AND GARDEN. It is said that caterpillars and other pests of trees and shrubbery may be destroyed by boiling the stems and leaves of tomato plants and pouring the liquid upon the afflicted vegetation. It has been stated that sinee the sunflower has been cultivated oh certain swamps cf the Potomac malaria fever has decreased. At the mouth of the Scheldt, in Holland, it is stated that similar results have be en ob served. England, especially in the midland counties, is suffering from a severe plague of small caterpillars. ? To walk in the woods means to have dozens of the little pests falling down one's neck, and it is a relief to hear that a certain means of putting an end to them has been unearthed from a newspaper of 1812. A gardener of that period hit upon the means of taking the caterpillars by kindness. In each of his infested bushes he put warm pieces of woolen rag at sun-down. The caterpillars . crawled for shelter to the comfortable woolen, and in the morning were taken a...

Raising Turkeys [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Raising Turkeys What an immense profit can be made with a little care and patience in raising turkeys. Now,, most of the hill land is hardly, able'to sustain two cows all the year around on 150 acres. Six months the cows will have plflntyto eatj and the other half of the year There is, of copise/goojlhill land* but I am talking.of, the worst, because that is yet to be had, is just as good for raising turkeys as any of the better land. Now, this same land that is not able to keep two cows in good condition all the year around, will raise Jfrom 800 to 500 turkeys with yery little more 'trouble than the cows require, but with much more profit. Sly proposition is : Keep only one cow if you have a family and need the milk for your children, and with money that would buy the other one-say $36 to $45-buy some twenty turkey hens and two or three strong gobblers, and start in -and raise turkeys. Do you or your wife know how to raise chickens ? "Well, turkeys require not a bit more care. The ...

How to Make Good Batter [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

Bow to Make Good Batter I have learned by long experience about making what I call good butter, and preserving it nice and sweet after it is made. To keep butter good that is made in the fall is one thing, but to keep that good that is made in the summer is quite another. Our best and richest butter is made in May, June and July, when the cows milk strong. The best of butter may easily be kept good till April of the following year, and here is the way I do it: Mrst it must be good butter when made; all the butter milk must be worked out. My practice for yeais has been to thoroughly wash the butter before it is taken out of the churn, and I am confident that the plan is a good one. Salt to suit the taste of those who are to eat it-half ounce of salt to apound of butter is about right Keep out your saltpetre, sugar of other ingre dients-it will keep better without them and, perhaps, too, without salt, but would not be so palatable. Do up the butter each week, on churning, in neat roun...

The Palmy day Tragedian. 'All the world's stages, ...and all the men and women merely players,' mused the tragedian, 'and I Have in my time played' many parts.* * Did you re-organise the Uncle Tom com pany?' asked the man with asthma. * We did not re-organise,' answered the tragedian, with dignity. «The Rondout manager declined to advance fares when he: learned that we had no jackass. However, their IGBS was my temporary gain. As soon as it was known that our tour would not be resumed a brisk rivalry began among metro politan managers for my services. "While my last engagement has not added materially to my reputation as a legitimate atraction, I am a small gainer in the matter of financial stand ing, and a large gainer in the matter of ex perience.' * Experience!' said the Lyceum mani < Why, I fancied there wasno walk of the which you hadjnot traversed.'

ART & LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 12 October 1888

ART & LITERATURE. The King of Sweden is a scholar, and has made Ms literary reputation by a translation of Goethe's " Faust" into Swedish. Mr. Eider Haggard has been studying on the spot the scenes for his new story, which .will deal largely with Iceland, a new field for the novelist. Fanny Fern never wrote a word for publica tion until she had passed her fortieth birthday. She was unconscious of her latent powers until misfortune bade her exert them. An old contributor to Household Words says concerning Dickens' work as the editor thereof: * "What didn't he do ? He cut us down, he wrote passages in, and he gave new titles, and that was how he made his magazine a success.' Julian Hawthorne says: ' It is a familiar troth that a woman's organisation is much more nearly homogeneous than that of a roan; the filaments of heart and brain are woven together into an inextricable fabric; their judgment is swayed by their feeling, and sentiment colors their perceptions. For this reaso...

Baldwin's Butterflies. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 October 1888

Baldwin's Butterflies. As a butterfly is the type of everything light, joyons, free, and happy, so this Combination ia called "The Butterfly Company," for it causes hearty laughter, and happy, pleasant, interesting, hours of amusement for all who see it.-The Baidwih PROGRAMME . Daring the past week the name of Pro fessor Baldwin has been in everybody's month, whilst the entertainments given by him on Monday and Tuesday evenings in the Petersburg Institute Hall have been the subject of endless discussion. As the Pro fessor billed the town m a most lavish style* and, besides,brought a well-earned reputation with him. it was surprising that the attend ance on Tuesday evening was not greater, Those who attended, however, were rewarded by witnessing what was certainly the most marvellous performance of its kind ever given in this district.

Rules for Journalists. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 October 1888

Rules for Journalists. Charles A. Dana, editor of the New York Sun, delivered an address to the Wisconsin. Editorial Association. The following is a portion of his remarks; So important was the function of the newspaper that colleges were establishing classes for instruction in journalism. Nowithstanding this, Dana had heard an old newspaper editor say that such classes "were useless, because the only place to learn the business was in a newspaper office. A remarkable thing about the edu cation of newspaper men was that it should be universal. There was one chance for an ignoramus in that profession. A newspaper man must know whether the theology of a preacher is sound and whether the logic of the lawyer is good for anything. If possible he should bo sent to college, but what was more important he should be sent to the Bchool of practical life. The speaker did not think a college course in journalism would be of much value, There were no set maxims and rules for journalists. A docto...

Travelling Costumes [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 October 1888

Travelling' Costumes A pretty French costume de voyage is in dust coloured foulard flecked with specks in a darker shade; it is made very simply, a plain skirt falling in natural folds, gathered in rather full behind, but almost plain in front, with seven narrow tucks above the hem of the skirt- The bodice is full both in front and behind, drawn in by a wide leather waistband matching the silk in colours, fastened on the left side by three tiny bucldes. The hat is of the Stuart shape, in soft dust coloured felt, the upturned wide brim lined with dark green velvet, and the trimming, loops of striped green ribbon and dark green plumes. The over-mantle, or dust cloak, is of tussore silk lined with dark green, having an upright collar and three capes; it is without sleeves and opens down the front, the fulness at the back being drawn in to the figure.

Killing' no Murder. WHEN A WIFE KILLS HEB HUSBAND. At Chester, recently, before Mr. Justice Meld, Mary Ellen Coleman was chargcd with the manslaughter of her husband, John Coleman, at Stockport, on the 17th April last, and pleaded " Guilty " to the charge. From the statement made by the prisoner's counsel J it appeared that the deceased man had been in the habit of brutally ill-treating the prisoner and on the day of the fatal blow the deceased had been drinking heavily, and the prisoner endeavoured to get him home from a public house. While doing so he kicked her violently in the chest. She retreated into another room, and the deceased followed her and sat down on a chair by the fire, leaning down to where a poker was lying. This the prisoner seized, and dealt the deceased a blow, not of a violent nature, on the side of the side of the head, and from the effect of this blow the deceased died four days afterwards. His lordship . . . sentenced the prisoner to one day's imprisonment. ...

Fancy Ornaments of the Year. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 October 1888

Fancy Ornaments of the Year. More and more fanciful, says the Queen do the pretty trinkets with which ladies like to adorn themselves become. The accessories of their toilets now must he novelties to please the fastidious tastes of modern belles : and inventors rack their brains in the hope of finding1 some fresh idea to suit the fancy of the moment. Certainly they succeed to a marvellous degree, considering the fact that every season their inventive powers are taxed to the uttermost. Some of the newest and daintiest little fal-lals are those which can be attached to a chateline. Scent bottles and vinaigrettes have always had a good amount of attention expended on them, and at no tune more than the present. Very tasty are the silver cockleshells, fitted so as to hold scent, and made as nearly as practicable after the natural form, with all the coils and crinkles intact. The rage for inserting tiny watches in various articles still continues, and they are now to be seen in the centre...

Baptist Anniversary. Anniversary services in connection with the Baptist church, Petersburg, were celebrated on Sunday and Monday last. On Sunday, morning and evening, the Rev E, J.

On the latter occasion the Rev gentleman chose for his subject the stoppage of the building of the tower of Babel, the confusion of the language and consequent scattering over the earth, of the builders This chapter fGenesis xij was, the preacher stated, one of deep interest to the spiritual mind, inasmuch as it recorded two great facts-the building of the tower of Babel and the call of Abraham, The many extremely infantile ideas that were abroad as to the object the builders of the tower had in view were then alluded to, one notion being that the structure was to afford a refuge should a flood again visit the earth, and another that the tower was to be built high enough to reach the place known to us...
