PUZZLEISTIC HEADLIGHTS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
PUZZLEISTIC HEADLIGHTS . HIS TRADE ? BIAS SHALLOWPATE . Owing to the unclemency of tho weather one October morning , a party of gentlemen had collected at the Regent s Hotel , Leamington ; a few sitting in the bay window looking at the passersby , declared with a knowing wink that they could tell each mans trade by his walk as he passed by . At these announcements bots ran high and the excitement increased . All of a sudden the excitement was hushed by some one ejaculating , Bet on thia man coming ! Several bets were made on as many trades . The waiter was sent to bring in the man to decide the wagers by telling his trade . Upon being ushered In . the man revealed his trade as follows : Gentlemen , I am an heart tormentor aud an element raiser . I scoop out the inside , cut off the outside , and buy and sell the remainder . They had watched tho man with eager eyes , but now their eyes dropped , and they looked like a cent s worth of soap . Finally the man was urged to explain his tr...

THE FARM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE For the Year 1884 . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
THE FARM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE For the Year 1884 . ; THE FARM , FIELD AND FIBESIDE this year is larger and better than ever before , and offers more good wholesome matter for one dollar than any other paper in the world . As averred by some of its cotemporaries and rivals it has not reduced its character by its liberal dealings with its patrons . It does not seek increased circulation just for reputation of having the largest list of subscribers in the world . A large list enables the publisher to secure higher rates for its advertising space . By this revenue the paper is better , its scope enlarged , and its general usefulness improved . As a trusted , clean , wholesome family paper , it has long enjoyed a good circu lation among the best people—the industrious , frugal and moral , whom every community recognizes as its best citizens—and it means to keep this circulation and increase it by continuing to deserve it . THE FABM , FIELD AND FIBESIDE is the leading paper of its kind in ...

EDUCATION AND FARMERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
EDUCATION AND FARMERS . The farmer feeds the world , and from his ranks rise the people s kings . Agriculture is a motor of mental energy that supplies the ever failing forces of professional life . Strong brained men of the farm leave it and enter professional life . Why ? Material prosperity is the American idol . Agriculture is stingy in her payment of intellect and culture . To-day she requires an intelligence for which she will not pay . The college graduate , and the ignorant emigrant who cannot see beyond the bounds of his narrow fields , are on a financial level on the farm . The foreign tide of toilers from the oppressed lands of Europe sweHs over our farms , and sooner or later , he who tills the soil will own it . Competition even is fierce , but to them the rewards are great , to the other next to nothing . Muscle is paid almost as well as brain . This is the diffuse period of our national existence . We spread over too much surface . We seek to grasp more than we can ho...
READING ALOUD- [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884
READING ALOUD- CRIME is always in the ratio of ignorance and wicked passion , and life is happy in proportion to equable tempers and gentle thoughts . On the homes of the world depend the future progress of the race . If they have no sunshine our hearts will be dark . If our mothers make home a place of scolding , of ugly words and ill temper , the lips of children will never know reverence , their hearts will be strangers to gentleness , and their lives will be full of hatred and bitterness . Happy homes make happy people , and a happy people is half of what God demands . A cheap organ has saved many a family from misery , and saved our prisons from many victims . Music in the family binds closely many hearts that would stray , soothes and rests and purifies . When night comes , with children singing to their parents the old favorites of song , songs that express our better nature , gentleness , rest , then earth will grow rich in goodness . There is one thing better still , and th...
