SHEEP BREEDERS IN COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

SHEEP BREEDERS IN COUNCIL The meeting of the Northern MinoisMerino Sheep Breeders , at Elgin , January 16 , was poorly attended . The following officers were re-elected : President , Daniel Kelley , Wheaton ; Vice President , G . W . Hunt , Greenwood ; Secretary , and Treasurer , W . C . Vandercook , Cherry Valley . The second grandannual Sheep-Shearing will be held at the Elgin fair grounds on Thursday and Friday , April 22 nd and 23 d . The flrst day will be occupied in the examination of the stock present and the second day the shearing will be performed . The members present discussed somewhat at length the subject of a National Merino Sheep register . A committee was appointed to confer with breeders of other States and gain their co-operation . Letters were read from the associations of Wisconsin , Michigan , and New York , who propose to unite with Illinois in the national register . This was rendered necessary by the recent action of the Vermont breeders , who adopted a reso...

LOCAL MUSEUMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

LOCAL MUSEUMS Why may not our County Agricultural Boards take steps to institute museums , where may be collected geological specimens , specimens of soils , birds , insects , grains , grasses , noxious weeds , drawings of plans for houses , barns , and school houses ? Where farmers clubs , and granges are strong they may well unite with their county organizations in furthering this object . It is not easy to estimate the good effects that these museums would lead to . Properly organized and every member a collector of specimens that may come under his observation , the filling up ofthe rooms would be rapid . Exchanges of duplicate collections among the different organizations would gradually secure very full and exceedingly valuable collections that would instruct both old and young . No very large sum of money would be necessary to begin with . A suitable room could be obtained in a central location at a very small rent , and the necessary shelving and cases could be added to as t...

RAILROAD LEGISLATION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

RAILROAD LEGISLATION The attention of the present Congress will be . called to the question of railroad legislation by the bill on this subject , known as the Reagan bill , now in the hands of the House Committee on Oom . merce . We will , in another number of the REVIEW , give some of the details of this bill . In the meantime it will not be uninteresting to our readers to see the pros and cons of State railway control , as summed up by one of the foremost political economists of Europe , —Mr . De Laveleye . This gentleman is a Belgian , and as such has every opportunity of observing the results of State railway control in its fullest development , every road in Belgium but one being in the hands of the State , and that one likely to be very soon absorbed . One striking indication of the satisfaction of the Bel gian people with their system of State control is to be found in the fact that both political parties are thoroughly unanimous in support of it . It is well to remember , ho...

IS IT PEACE OR WAR IN EUROPE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

IS IT PEACE OR WAR IN EUROPE The political condition of Europe is somewhat anomalous just now . Except in Russia , the general enemies of social order , —those who properly deserve the name of rebels , —have been pretty well quieted down . Internal affairs in Germany ancl France , to the casual observer , at least , show no signs of imminent irrup tion ; and even in Italy and Spain , immediate violence seems not to be apprehended from the extreme radicals ; but whatever may be thought of the actual condition of that phase of political life , in another and equally- important one , the foreign relations . of the great European powers , turmoil and strife are plainly discernible . The allegations of that portion of the German press regarded as inspired , in reference to the position in foreign affairs arbitrarily assigned to France b y the great German autocrat , the extreme sensitiveness of Russia in regard to the Austro . Prussian alliance , coupled with Russias anxiety to distract ...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

THE beet-sugar crop of Europe is this year estimated at 1 , 610 , 000 tons , being 110 , 000 tons more than last year , and thecane-sugar crop ofthe United States is placed at 200 , 000 hogsheads this year , being double the quantity ever produced before , yet this aggegate amount is small compared with the world s product . THE plow manufacturers of the Northwest closed a meeting in this city on Saturday , at which a uniform scale of prices was agreed on . A general advance in prices , owing to the increased cost in materials , was deemed necessary and just . It was decided to advance the prices of single shin-plows fifty cents for plows of ten inches and upward . It was also voted that the same proportionate advance on medium landside double shin-plows be made , aud a uniform discount be given to the dealer on all goods not sold at net prices . An advance of about $ 2 . 50 on cultivators above last year s prices , and on sulky-plows about $ 4 for fourteen-inch , and $ 5 for sixtee...

SHEEP HUSBANDRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

SHEEP HUSBANDRY We have before us a statement from the statistical department of the Government , showing that the imports of foreign wool into the United States for 1879 were 64 ,- 903 , 000 lbs ., against 17 , 464 , 728 lbs . in 1878 . The invoice value ot the imports of 1879 was $ ? , 284 , 708 . To this must be added nearly or quite 100 per cent , in order to cover freight , ocean insurance , and other items to importers , making a total of $ 16 ,- 569 , 416 paid in a single year by American manufacturers for foreign--wools . This sum should have gone info the pockets of American farmers , and it is their own fault that it does not do so . It is absurd to suppose that a country like ours , possessing every variety of climate and soil is unable to produce every grade of wool required by our manufacturers . As a sam ple of what might be done in the way of wool growing , we will cite the progress made in California . In 1854 the total product of that State was only 175 , 000 pounds...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS HAIL INSDBANCK COMPANY . —The Mutual Hail Insurance Company of Milwaukee , which undertook to afford protection to the Granger community of the NorthweBt against damage done to growing crops by hall storms , has failed in business . Einil Walluer , as assignee , is now closing up the affairs of tlie institution . The liabilities of the company are said to be about $ 20 , 000 . Assets the same . The cause of thef lilnre is not reported . If , us stated , the assets are equal to lier liabilities , it seems difficult , to assign any other cause than a refusal on the part of the members io remain any lunger subject to assessment . THE President of the Darlington Mutual Fire Insurance Company ( Wis . ) , in an address delivered on tha 5 th inst ., congratulated the members of the company In high terms upon the success which has attended the company during the past year . It appears lhat during the whole twelvemonth the company did not meet with a single loss . While the c...

Uphold my feeble branches Wltb thy strong arms , I pray ; Thus to tbe Elm , ber neighbor , Tbe Vine wu heard to My ; Else lying low and helpless , A weary lot Is mine , Crawled oer by every reptile , And browsed by hungry klne . 1 * The Elra was moved to pity : Then spoke the generous tree : Sly hapless friend , come hither , And flnd support In me . The kindly Elm , receiving The graceful Vine s embrace , Became , with that adornment . The garden s pride and grace ; Became the chosen couvert In which the wild birds sing ; Became the love of shepherds . And glory of the Spring . O beautiful example For youthful minds to heed ! The good we do to others Shall never miss Its meed ; The love ot those whose sorrows We lighten shall be ours , And o er the path we walk in Tbat love shall scatter flowers . — William Cullen Brnanl , in Christian Union .

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IN TWENTT MESHES . ( Continued from page 48 . ) MESH III . —ON THE LOOK-OUT . Very few words passed between father and daughter , beyond the relation of what she had seen , and Judy had hard work to keep up with the old man s excitementlengthened strides . Arrived at the look-out , he raised the glass to his eye , and had a long look at the fights , as the wind , which was rapidly increasing , made them rise and ( fall with a more uneasy motion , and caused the long tube the old man held to waver and quiver in his hands . Quickly , child , he cried , take the glass while I go in for a light , one of the red star lights . If . they see that burning , they are sure to answer it at once . He hurriedly left her , and she was about to adjust the glass once more , when a voice close behind her made her start . Is any thing wrong , Miss Jadith ? Jud y turned to shrink instinctively from the dimly seen figure , whose voice she knew well enough ...

IN THE FLOWER GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

IN THE FLOWER GARDEN No . 2 . - In making a selection of seeds for the flower garden , we must aim to get kinds which will give us early flowers , others that come into bloom later in tlie season , and those which do not bloom until the Summer is well advanced . These late flowers are really Fall flowers , if not planted too early , and will give us a most brilliant show at a season of the year when there is generally a dearth ! in the garden . By making a selection with reference to their periods of blooming , we can have a constant succession of flowers from June until frost comes . One of the very best flowers for the garden is the phlox . It is good for several reasons . It comes into bloom early ; it blossoms constantty until after hard frosts , and it is very easily taken care of . Indeed , we think it will do the best with little care , of any flower we have . But those who have seen it as it grows and blossoms with a little care , do not know what great things it will do wit...

BETROTHAL AND BRIDAL CUSTOMS The following , embodies sentiments that a girl will do well to consider before accepting a proposal : — TOUT OTJ RIEN . —( ALL OK NOTHING ) . There are loves—and lovesl and you say you love me , : And calmly ask me to be your wife ; , And you promise by all the stars above me , To guide and cherish and guard my life , But down in your heart Is some old love lying : That shall make your promise a slow , dull task ? . If so . In vain is your pleading and sighing—Tout ou llien is what I ask . Do you love me better than all things human . With that one worship that each life knows ? 4 . Or simply because I am a woman , And can sew on buttons and mend your clothes ? Oh , woo me not in that business fashion ; I can not and will not give my hand Unless you give me your heart s best passion , Tout du Bien ls what I demand . Her earthly life and her hopes of heaven ( Since -he lifts up or drags her down ) Unto a husband Is freely given , When a woman accepts the...
