Is Our Wealth lessening ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Is Our Wealth lessening ? Wealth does not always exist in the shape of money . The greater portion is contained in the soil . Every bushel of wheat or pound of beef sold to foreign countries is just so much real wealth lost . Gold and silver simply represent wealth , for the value of these commodities depends upon their abundance , while the future may result in the discovery of large quantities sufficient to lessen them in value for the purposes used . A nation may never have an ounce of gold or silver within its limits and yet be wealthy . Our real riches are being taken from the sou and transported away for exchange , and the time will come however distant , when it will be felt . What resources have we for restoring the wealth to the soil . At present we nave the deposits of fertilizing material , with which to grow larger crops , but the manures on the farm , though represent- r ^ IS ? 6 savings , add nothing to our wealth , as such , material is created from Jhe materials of t...

EDITOR FASH , FIELD AND S TOCKMAN : I have seen a printed personal letter from a Chicago agricultural paper saying that the seed offered by him as premiums for two years past was put up by a Seedsman near Chicago .

The paper referred to is not offering seeds this year . ,,. I . D . L . Minneapolis , Minn . ANSWER : Our Mr . Wilson is undoubtedly the seedsman referred to .

Words of Encouragement . We are thankful for the many kind words of encouragement we are receiving from our subscribers and from the press .

Under our management the influence of this journal will be used against swindlers and dishonest schemers and monopolists of all kinds , who will be fearlessly exposed in its columns , whenever our attention is called to them .
What Selection Will Perform , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
What Selection Will Perform , EVEKV purtfbreed known to agriculturists is the result of careful selections , in connection with breeding for definite results . This requires care , patience and time , to fix the characteristics of a breed , but it has been done , and can still be done . The lesson to be gained from the efforts of those who have divided and classified our animals into distinct breeds adapted for special purposes , is that nothing is impossible . The average farmer may not be as successful as those who devoted their time entirely to the improvement of the breeds , but he can adhere rigidly to the practice of careful selection of the best . Unless this is done , or resort be had to other stock , the most valuable animals will gradually revert to the original type , from whence derived . Having elevated the standard of the characteristics of our domestic animals , man is compelled to keep them fully up to that standard or his efforts will be futile to prevent a retrogra...
YOUNG FOLKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
YOUNG FOLKS . ROME WASNT BUILT IN A DAY ALIO * . CAHV . The boy who does a stroke , and stopsWill ne er a great man be ; Tis the aggregate of single drops That makes the sea the sea . Not all at once the morning streams Its gold above the gray , It takes a thousand little beams To make the day the day . Upon the orchard rain must fall , And soak from branch to root . And buds must bloom and fade withal . Before tbe fruit is fruit . The farmer needs must sow and till And wait the wheaten head . Then &lt; n * adle , thresh , and go to mill , Before his bread is bread . Swift heels may get the early shout , But , spite of ail the din , It is thepatttenl holding out That makes the winner win . FOUR-HANDED JACK . OLIVE TIIOKNE . Seems queer that a fellow should have four hands , but for all that it is true . The big book says so , and even call his whole family four-handed , only they use a long latin word ( Quadrumana . ) . Yes , Jack has four hands , and we might as well say fi...
Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Xhe grass is browning on the hills ; Ho pale , belated flowers recall The astral fringes of the rills , , And drearily the dead vines fail , Fi-e-ct-blackened , from the roadside wall . Yet , through the gray and sombre wood , Against the dusk of fir and pine , Last of their floral sisterhood . The hazels yellow blossoms shine . The tawny gold of Africa mine 1 Small tKauty hath my unsung flower , For spring to own or summer hail , * But , in the season s saddest hour , To skies that weep and winds that wail Its glad surprisals never fail . Parents Educated by Their Children . Perhaps in no other part of his work does Goethe show more clearly his keen and careful observation of character than in the description of the change produced in Wilhelm Meister by his association with his child . He represents Wilhelm as viewing his farms and buildings with new interest , and as zealously contemplating repair of what had been neglected . He no longer looked on the world with the WITCH-HAZEL ....

THE TWO DESTINIES , BY WILK 1 IJ COIeUiVS . AUTHOB OP WOMAN IN WHITE , NEW MAUDALEN , MOONSTONE , ETC . CHAPTEE H . TWO YOUNG HEABTS . He is growing too fast , said the doctor to my mother ; and he , is getting a great deal too clever for a boy at his age . Kemove him from school , ma am , for six months ; let him run about in the open air at home ; and , if you find him with a book in his hand , take it away directly . There is my prescription 1 Those words decided my late in life . In obedience to the doctor s advice , I was left an idle boy—without brothers , sisters or companions of my own age—to roam abont the grounds of our lonely country-house . The bailiff s daughter , like me , was an only child ; and , like pie she had no playfellows . We met in our wanderings on the solitary shores of the lake . Beginning by being inseparable companions , we ripened and developed into true lovers . Our preliminary courtship concluded , we next proposed ( before I returned to school ) to b...
