Farm , Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
Farm , Garden and Orchard ILLINOIS COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE . D URING a recent visit to the University of Illinois at Champaign it was our privilege to have a short talk with Prof . Eugene Davenport , Dean of the College of Agriculture . In the course of the conversation some improvements that are planned for the near future were mentioned . : Those who are acquainted with Prof . Davenport s coming to the university will recall the fact that he was made dean of the College of Agriculture with the title of Professor of Animal Husbandry . He has taken hold of that branch of farm sci ence with a hearty zest and the improved stock already bought for the college herd gives evidence that there is a man at the head of the department who puts both head and heart into the work . It is designed to have a professor of agricultural physics who shall devote his time to soils and crops—to the teaching of the science of making proper soil for certain crops and the producing of crops in the most prof...

THE FARMERS' SIDE [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
THE FARMERS SIDE COMPTROLLER ECKELS NOT FORGOTTEN . To the Editor of the Western . Rural : One of the most difficult things to obtain from those who are advocating the fastening of the gold standard on the American people , is an honest statement of facts . People will honestly differ in opinion on almost all economic and political subjects as we have a perfect right to do , but many of the statements made by the leading advocates in high official positions for the gold standard , actuated either by ignorance or dishonesty , have again and again been shown by the double standard men to be entirely false . Nearly four weeks ago I criticized in your columns the statement of James H . Eckels , the comptroller of . the currency , in his attempt to make the people believe that we had coined only a little more than 8 million dollars worth of full legal tender silver from the organization of our mints in 1792 until 1873 , while the truth is that we have , coined , more than 84 mil lion dol...

Fins , Feathers ancj Money Bees [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
Fins , Feathers ancj Money Bees THE . SUMMER CONTEST . THE poultryman s main fight during the hot months is with the lice and mites that are sure to prevail in and about the henhouse and the fowls , if active measures are not taken for their preven : tion or extinction . The mites—those little red and white , specks that gather about neglected nests , roosts , etc ., and drop everything to jget on the careless and neglectful poultryman when he happens to come about , are the most annoying and the most to be dreaded . If they take possession of the chicken quarters the fowls become feverish , pale about the comb and gills , and profitless , as a nervous and irritated hen will not lay . The fight against the mite pest should begin early and last till all are extinguished . If the loose trash , filth , old nest pacfc 1 ng , and droppings are kept out of the way , say cleared out twice a week , and some loose dry earth . sprinkled thickly . about after cleaning , and kerosene oil sprink...

OUR CAMPAIGN OFFER : ONLY 25 CENTS [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
OUR CAMPAIGN OFFER : ONLY 25 CENTS For the Western Rural until the end of this year . Every campaign subscription will make a convert for silver . Will you help win the fight for bimetallism and prosperity ? DIMINISHED IMPORTS . THE consular reports from Germany show a great failing off of exports from that country to the United States . This relates to nearly everything except sugar , which has naturally increased by reason of the diminished production in Cuba . Annaberg , Bremen , Brunswipk , Breslau , Chemnitz , Glauchau , Hanover , Plauen , and Leipsic , show a decrease of $ 1 , 980 , 525 . Mlost of the exports are in wearing apparel , including silks , linen , hair cloth , cotton hosiery , laces , woolen dress goods and ready-made clothing . If this means merely a diminished power to buy on our part , it bodes no great good . If it means that we ourselves are going to resume manufacturing on a larger scale , it would be good news .

COLLEGE SNOBS [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
COLLEGE SNOBS Many of the plain people of this country shake their heads at the idea of a college education for their sons . They say a college education means snobbery , affectation and false notions of life . This is only one side of the story . Some boys are ruined by collegelife , while to others it is the open door to future greatness . It depends partly on the boy and partly on the college associations and surroundings . It is no wonder that a college whose president is essentially snobbish and out of touch with the people should turn out many graduates of doubtful credit . These general principles apply with especial force to Harvard University , and its president recently in unsavory prominence as the traducer of the Grand Army . His remarks were both consistent , and characteristic . His attitude toward most great national questions is equally unpatriotic . In the currency he is a gold monometallism His sympathies are as little with the farmer as with the veteran soldier . ...
Woman and Her Domain [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 4 June 1896
Woman and Her Domain THE SWALLOW . I doff my hat to the robin , . And I fling a kiss to the wren , The thrushs song sets my heart throbbing , For it makes me a child again ; But when you wing your- airy flight , - My soul springs up to follow ; I would be one with you , and I might , For . I love you , love you , swallow ! I hear the many-voiced chatter Under the barn s ; broad , eaves , As clear as the rain s , blithe patter , Or lisp of crisp poplar leaves ; I seem to learn the way to be glad , EarthJs joys no more seem hollow ; He who would flee from musings sad Should learn to love you , swallow . Your * flight is a song that lifts me A moment to upper air ; That with strangest power gifts me To buoyantly match you there , How high spe er your course may run , My ieager thought doth follow ; Together , we might reach the sun , For I love yoti , love you , swallow ! —Arlo Bates CLARA BARTONS LIGHT .
