STYLES FOR LADIES AND CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

STYLES FOR LADIES AND CHILDREN ( Written for the FAKMEBS REVIEW . ) It is as yet too early in the season to indicate witli certainty as to Fail styles , but we may assert with confidence that for tlie next three months the principal changes in ladies costumes will be in garniture , and not in shape . Princqpse dresses are still worn , but they serve only as a foundation upon which to erect a dressy superstructure in the form of a simulated basque and overskirt , or a very-much-trimmed polonaise . The overskirt most worn now is called the curtain overskirt . Two breadths , nearly the length of the skirt , are required for the front and sides . These are fastened to the belt , just meeting in front , and , as the name indicates , are drawn back and festooned quite high on the hips . This style necessitates an elaborate trimming for the front and sides of the underskirt . Perpendicular . trimming either in box-pleats , shirrs , or puffs , reaching front belt to hem , is the favorite mo...

USEFUL HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

USEFUL HINTS Colored Wash for Walls— Three or four handfuls of Portland cement put in a pailful of whitewash will make a nice stonecolored cement for walls or out-buildings , that will look well and not wash or rub off . The Stove in Summer . —It is said that a tablespoonful of molasses added to stovepolish will cause the polish toadhere longer than otherwise . This is a useful hint to those who have unused stoves remaining in parlors or sitting rooms during Summer .

FLORAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

FLORAL NOTES PETUNIAS . One of the most easily-managed plants for the window , where the choicer plants will not flourish satisfactoril y , is the Petunia . And it is always a rule of mine , in selecting plants for use in any particular place , to choose only such as will flourish there ; they may not be very choice , but so long as they will do well under the conditions to which they must be submitted , they are far preferable to kinds which , under favorable circumstances , are more desirable , but which here would be quite likely to disappoint us . The Petunia will grow and bloom luxuriantly where any plant , except a Cactus , will die . It does not seem to be very particular about dust or dry air , drouth or change of temperature . Because it will stand , all these things it is well suited to ordinary window culture , for , in spite of our constant preaching about moisture and cleanliness , and the other etceteras of plant-culture , the fact remains that most window plants have ...

THE WIFE WINS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE WIFE WINS . When they reached tlie depot , Mr . Mann and his wife gazed in unspeakable disappointment at the receding train , which was just pulling away from tlie bridge-switcli at the rate of a thousand miles a minute . The first impulse was to run after it , but as the train was out of sight and whistling for Sagetown before they could act upon tho impulse , they remained in the carriage , and disconsolately turned their horses heads homeward . It all comes of having to wait for a woman to get ready , MrvMann broke the silence very grimly . I was ready before you were , replied his wife . Great heavens ! cried Mr . Mann , with keen impatience , jerking the horsesjaws out of place ; just listen to that . I sat in the buggy ten minutes yelling at you to come along , until the whole neighborhood heard me . Yes , acquiesced Mrs . Mann , with the provoking placidity which none can assume but a woman , and every time I started down stairs , you sent me back for something you hail f...

THE CROP OF 1879 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE CROP OF 1879 As time goes on the reports regarding tli is year s harvest grow more and more encouraging ; true in some sections tlie results of threshing have not been equal to the anticipations , but there is little to complain of anywhere and in the country at large , nothing but congratulation is in order . At the same time the probabilities of tlie demand in Europe seem to increase in proportion to the vastness of our harvest here . Wheat will not be exported to an extent worth mentioning , save from this country and Russia . Australia s exporting is practically over , a smaller crop in Victoria than was anticipated having checked it materially , and that now stored in large quantities in Odessa , Russia , is reported to be of poor quality , while the American is better than ever . For corn also the demand is increasing . The maize crop has proved a failure in Bulgaria , and the Mark Lane Express reports a recent rise in English markets of two shillings a quarter for that ce...

NEW VARIETIES OF WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

NEW VARIETIES OF WHEAT Why may not our agricultural societies take a hint from the course lately decided upon by the Royal Society of England . This society has offered two prizes of £ 25 and ^ lO each , for distinctly new varieties of wheat which shall combine the largest yield of grain and straw per acre with approved form and size , smooth and thin skin , full and white kernel , and high specific gravity in the seed , and with bright , firm , and stiff straw . One sack must be delivered to tlie Society by each competitor , together witli a sample bundle of straw , before the 1 st of October next . A portion of each sample will be kept for comparison , and the remainder , divided into equal portions , will be cultivated next year in four localities differing in respect of soil and climate . The prizes will be awarded for the best varieties of the crop of 1880 , thus cultivated under the auspices of the Society , if in the opinion of the judges they possess qualities which entitle ...

THE GREEDY RAILROADS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE GREEDY RAILROADS When wheat was selling in Chicago , about the middle of August last , at 87 to 88 c . a bushel , the price in England was about 49 shillings a quarter or nearly 4 shillings more than it was at the same time last year , when it was selling in Chicago at 89 c . It seems strange that a reduction in selling price in Chicago should accompany a rise in England equal to about 12 c . a bushel . The only way to explain this phenomenal state of affairs is by the action of the trunk lines running to our seaboard , which united in raising grain freights a short time ago , and more recently agreed upon a further rise , which was to take effect on the 23 th ulto . Tlie action of the Eastern roads is undoubtedly based upon their knowledge that the immense movement of grain eastwards is in excess of the carrying capacity of the boats available to move it by water , and they therefore feel able to charge what they please and reap the lion s share of the benefits of the European ...

Y ., the middle of the present month , and will hold a session , beginning the 15 th . The object of the meeting is the reading of papers on economic subjects , discussions , etc .

AMERICAN COMPETITION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

AMERICAN COMPETITION Messrs . Albert Pell , former chairman of the Central Chamber ot Agriculture , and Clare Sewell Read , President of the Norfolk Chamber of Agriculture , both members of the British Parliament , are expected shortly in this country . They come here officially as members of the Royal Commission to inquire into the causes of agricultural depression in England , and expect to take cognizance of our present harvest . What sort of a report these gentlemen will make to the Commission they represent , it is not difficult to foresee . It will probably not differ materially from reports which appear continually in our home journals , and which have occasionally been presented to the British public through the columns of their own press . The influence , however , of a report presented in this official manner , the result of the personal observation and inquiries on the ground of two English gentlemen intimately identified with agricultural matters in their own country , w...

PRESERVATION OF CORN FODDER . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

PRESERVATION OF CORN FODDER . We take pleasure in giving the prominence of our editorial columns to the following article , kindly furnished the readers of the FARMERS REVIEW by Mr . F . Morris , of Maryland . / Mr . M . is the pioneer in this experiment in this country . He speaks enthusiastically upon the subject of ensilage yet we see nothing exaggerated in his predictions as to the future of this new industry . Mr . Morris says : My experience of the use of corn fodder commenced in tlie year 1876 , when I received a French paper making a statement of the way it was preserved . I immediately resolved to try the experiment , and care- ¦ fully prepared about five acres of land , which I manured with stable manure , and sowed it in drills of about three feet apart —using a bushel of corn to the acre . The crop was put in by the first of August and was in tassel on tlie first of October . We then cut it with a mowing machine and carried it to the barn , where I had a feed cutter work...

HIBERNATION OF THE COTTON WORM MOTH . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

HIBERNATION OF THE COTTON WORM MOTH . After reviewing all the facts and evidence on the subject of the hibernation of the cotton worm , and showing that it can not and does not survive in the egg , larvas , or chrysalis state , Prof . C . V . Riley , in the paper read a few months ago before the National Academy of Science , considers its hibernation in the parent moth state . The power of migration is proved and admitted , and the Professor has known of large fields of melons being ruined by tlie moth ( whose proboscis enables it to puneture ripe fruit ) as far north as Racine , Wis . It is but natural , therefore , he continues , to . conclude that the insect comes each year from some country where the cotton plant is perennial ; and there are other facts which lead to Hi is view , first made known by Dr . W . J . Burnett in 1854 , and repeated twenty years later by Prof . A . R . Grote . Prof . Riley goes on to show , however , that the conclusion is probably erroneous , and ends...

NINE CENTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

NINE CENTS That Is What Montgomery Ward — Co . Want for Their Catalogue . And it looks aa if They Ought to Bave it . Some stir having been created by the announcement that Montgomery Ward & Co . intend charging nine cents for their catalogue this year , instead ot giving them away as heretofore , a statement of the facts is given for the benefit of our readers . Tl e flrm of Montgomery Ward & Co . was established by two of our most sagacious business men—A . M . Ward and George R . Thorne —in 1872 for the purpose of retailing at wholesale prices ; or , to put it a little more plainly , they proposed to supply the farming community with dry goods and general merchandise direct from a large depot which should be stocked with goods bought at the same prices as paid by those wholesalers and jobbers wiio supply the country merchants . They believed that such a business could be done with profit to themselves and their patrons , and the fact that they now have two ...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

INSURANCE ITEMS To THE EDITOR FARMERS REVIEW : — The abundant harvest with which this country has been so blessed is scarcely garnered , and already 1 find among recent fire losses one reporting loss of entire wheat crop—no insurance . There is not a business in the world so liable to utter loss by fire as the farmer s . In every other business a man s property is scattered , his merchandise in his store , bis residence and household goods far removed from them , his cash in his bank , other valuables in safety vaults , outstanding accounts with reliable firms in various parts of the country , and absolutely indestructible by fire , while with the farmer , his entire property , his recently gathered crop , his live-stock , and his implements , his buildings , including that which shelters the loved membfrs of his family and all the household goods which have become dear by many sacred associations , regardless ot the years of toil each little article of comtort or luxury represents ...

THE SCOTTISH BANKERS DILEMMA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE SCOTTISH BANKERS DILEMMA ( Continued Jrom August number . ) CHAPTER II . Dismay fell on the quiet little bank in Tollkirk . The former uneasiness became in the office a panic . Hamilton had been made ill by the anxiety of his position , and was in bed on the day that Mr . Traills deficiency occurred . After closely scrutinizing every entry in tlie books , Traill came to the conclusion that he had not paid the money in excess to any one , and that the notes must have been stolen by some one on the premises . The banks safe was duly examined ; but the locks bore no marks of being tampered witli . The windows and doors of the office were unaffected ; and Mr . Duff s domestics—who swept out the office—had been his servants and were known to him for years . The matter was on this occasion reported to the banks head office ; but thence came tlie cold intimation that no further deficiency could be made good , and referring the bank agents to their recent letter to that effect of such a...
