MIRROR TELEGRAPHY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
MIRROR TELEGRAPHY The use of the heliograph , which has become so common of late in the operations of the British armies in South Atrica and Afghanistan , seems likely to very largely supersede the telegraph by armies in the field . Fiel d telegraphy iormed an important feature ot the Franco-German campaign , but it is scarcely necessary to say that in the case of the usual telegraphic system , the amount of wire to be carried . the posts , etc ., entail a pretty formidable amount of weight for difficult transportation , not to mention the time , short as it seems , taken in setting up the posts—more important still is the necessity of keeping the route open . The heliograph , or mirror telegraph , consists merely of a ten inch mirror with a stand upon which it can swing either vertically or horizontally and a rod with a movable stud like the sight of a rifle . A clear spot is obtained in the center of the mirror through which the operator can look towards the point he desires to si...
INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS OVER INSURANCE IN MUIDAL INSDBANCE COMPANIES . —The extreme sensitiveness of a well-managed stock company on the subject of over-insurance , is rarely if ever , to be found in a mutual , and in the numerous cases where a party insured in a mutual concludes to change his policy and secure insurance in a stock company , the insurer is almost always struck by the anxiety ot the latter to have him make the amount of his policy low . Many a man formerly insured in a mutual company for $ 2 , 500 or $ 3 , 000 , is nowcarrying but $ 1 , 200 $ 1 , 500 in a stock company , and is regarded as fully insured . The extent of the expense incurred by the policy-holder in a mutual insurance company , owing to this common practice of over-insur-ance , is rarely considered . In a State for instance where a stock company will carry a good farm risk at $ 1 . 50 per * 100 for five years , the insurance on a $ 1 , 500 policy will cost the o wner $ 32 . 50 , or at tbe rate of $ 4 . 50 peran...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
LITERARY THE LAPSE OF SUMMER . Fair days or Summer , lapsing by On Time s swift , airy wing , Your waning moments , as they fly , O er us their halo fling . Gay season , glorious Summer s reign , Crowned with thy ripened graceBright months , when tender Love s refrain Echoes through charmed space ! The purple songster s requiem Thrills softly Summer s air , Tls meet that brighter hopes begem These gala days so rare . The alr teems with low Insect hum , When dies Summer s last day , While faintest shades the skies illume , Fleckd by you cloudlets gray . Bright Summer-time , thy tender wiles Throw o er us deepest spell ; Fair season , to thy lovely smiles Tls sad to say farewell . Glad months , unto us ever kind , Your absence we deplora—Mid fading flow rs must sit resigned , Since your sweet reign is o er . Fair Summer makes her dying plaints , And gently fades away ; Sweet Summer , with her mingled scents , Is hasting to decay ! • Tisgone ! The Summer-days are done ! Pale Autumn tin...
HORACE McLEAN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
HORACE McLEAN From . Cassell s Family Magazine . ( Continued from page 171 . ) I left my father s house on the night of the funeral—a penniless man , without a situation . But so anxious was I to obey my poor father s last behest , that a few days later I wrote to my brother , beseeching him to put me in a position to study for the bar , and promising never to ask him for a penny beyond the expense of my legal education . His answer was a refusal , couched in offensive terms , bidding me go back to the calling which I had chosen , and for which I was best fitted , and advising me to take again the assumed name vinder wnich . 1 had had the good sense , as he said , to hide my disgrace . Young man , I was obliged to go back to that calling or to starve . I had lost my character amongst my friends—or rather , I had been robbed of it by my brother s I misrepresentations — and no one would I help me to obtain other occupation . The I rest of my history is soon told . I married an actress...

OUR FAIRS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
OUR FAIRS . IOWA STATE FAIR . The impetus given to the meetings of the Iowa State Board of Agriculture by the successful issue of last year s fair , gave increased confidence to the exhibitors , in the ability of the association to fill its promises to the letter , and encouragement to the sight-seers , which culminated last week in the most successful fair held in the State , both in quantity and excellence of displays , as well as in enormous attendance . The magnificent grounds provided at the State capital have been greatly improved , some structures of a substantial character have been erected and the wisdom of the choice of Des Moines as the most available point for holding the State Fair seems to be clearly demonstrated . The weather held good and fair during the whole week . The large throngs felt in the best of humor , thoroughly intent on • i ! sight-seeing and determined to investigate ah they could see . The cattle sheds were all filled , a number of noted herds being re...
NORTHERN OHIO FAIR [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
NORTHERN OHIO FAIR Our limited space renders impossible more than a general mention of this fair . It was in all respects a more than ordinary success . Cold and threatening weather , with an occasional shower , kept many people away until Thursday , with milder temperature and occasional sunshine , when the people came pouring in from all quarters , till the fine grounds were literally covered . Friday was also a good day , and the officers were fully assured of sufficient receipts to considerably more than pay running expenses and premi ums . In cattle , sheep and swine , the show was but little , if any , inferior to that of the State fair ut Columbus . Fruit and farm product halls were well filled . Machinery hall was well filled and a feature of great attraction . The ladies crowded floral hall continually , and found much to interest them . There was a fine poultry show , contributed to by a large number of prominent breeders . In farm machinery the exhibition was first-class ...

THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880
THE HOME THE LOST CHORD . Seated one day at the organ , 1 was weary and HI at ease ; And my fingers wandered idly Over the noisy keys . I know not what I was playing . Or what I was dreaming then ; But I struck one chord of Music , Like the sound of a great A men . it flooded the crimson twilight , Like the close of an augers psalm ; And it lay on my fevered spirit With a touch of lnflnltecalm . It quieted pain and sorrow , Like love overcoming strife ; It seemed the harmonious echo From our discordant life . It linked all perplexed meanings Into one perfect peace , And trembled away Into silence As if It were loth to cease . I have sought , but I seek It vainly , That one lost chord divine , That came from the soul of the organ And entered into mine . It may be that Death s bright angel Will speak hi that chord again ; It may be that only in heaven I shall hear that grand Amen .
