INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS THE season is now upon us when Insurance companies present to tlie public their latest annual statements , and when agents are loud-spoken in praise of their respective claims to consideration . We propose to give a few hints as to certain landmarks , as it were , in a company s statement , which will help to determine its solidity . First , as to the character of its assets . A fair amount of cash on hand is a desirable feature . It indicates ability to readily satisfy its loss claims . Most companies show a considerable portion of their assets as loaned on mortgages . This is a good asset , provided the amount loaned is comparatively but a small sum in proportion to the value of tho real estate security . This value should always be stated . In the caBe of companies doing an extensive business throughout the country , ( and that is always a desirable characteristic in insurance ) , it is usual to find a portion of the assets invested in State bonds . This is freque...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

LITERARY THE OLD MILLER . BY W . N . DAVIDSON . I knew an old miller in boyhood . Who lived on the side ot a bill . In the sound of the falling waters , And nigh by a clattering mill . I remember the low ancient cottage , Tbe clustering Ivy that clung To the stately and olden linden That over the gable bung . A pathway led down through the garden And out through a latticed gate , That swung on its wooden hinges , With a sad and complaining grate . And on through a little meadow . Where cattle used to graze , And a spring-brook used to babble Through long , bright Summer days . Tin lt joined the highway to the village , That ran at tbe foot of the hill , And there stood the bourne of my travels—The dingy and clattering mill . How lofty it was , and so narrow ! The rafters how peaked and tall ! Tbe angles so crooked and leaning , Men said the old building would fall . The miller but smiled at the warning , And unto them , gaily , he said : My friends , the old mill will be standing Lo...

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OP A LIGHT AT SEA . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OP A LIGHT AT SEA . A NET IN TWENTY MESHES . ( Continued from page 79 . ) MESH V . — W ERE YOU WAVING YOUR HANDKERCHIEF TO ME ? Judith St . Just stood alone there in tho midst of the foam , which wreathed and eddied round her , before being blown inland in churned-up troth . Wave after wave broke upon the rocks , ran foaming up , and she felt it come over her feet and flow back ; but she did not move . The wind shrieked by her still , and the force at times was enough to make her turn her head to breathe ; but she did not shrink away , but with strained eyes kept watching for the lantern light as it rose and fell , sometimes seeming to go down so low that it must be engulphed . Then it grew more and more dim , and at last disappeared in the haze of spray . Stunned and confused then , Judith still stayed where she had been left ; and when her father returned , eager , excited and triumphant , she seemed to shrink from him with horror ; for it was as if he had s...

THE ROMANCE OF A MUSTACHE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

THE ROMANCE OF A MUSTACHE He tells the story of a Russian actor , which may not be out of place here . There was , during the reign of Nicholas , an actor in St . Petersburg named Ivan Layechnikiff , a comedian , in high favor with the Emperor . Ivan was the possessor of a superb mustache , of which he was exceedingly proud . In some play which was to be produced the manager ordered him to remove the hirsute ornament , o which he was so careful . I will not , was the reply . You must , or take the consequences , exclaimed the manager . I shall appeal to the Emperor ; and he did . Obtaining an audience he appealed to his Majesty . Tlie Czar smilingly asked him , Do you prefer retaining your mustache to your position in the theater ? Your Majesty , I do , said the plucky Ivan . Ah ! What if the choice were your mustache or your life ? By all means , Sire , still the mustache , answered Ivan , thinking his Majesty was indulging in a little pleasantry . Then , said the Czar , with sudde...

FROM SEVENTEEN TO FIFTY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

FROM SEVENTEEN TO FIFTY A spinster s life begins at the age of seventeen and ends at the age of fifty . When she reaches the age of fifty she either becomes an old woman or begins life afresh , starting this time at about five-and-twenty . There are , of course , exceptions . Some girls begin life very much earlier than at seventeen . I knew of a young lady of six who killed her grand , ma by her precocity . Her grandma had asked her to come and see her , and for her reception prepared a feast of seed-cake and mild negus , and also purchased a book of fairy stories . The child ate the cake , but objected to the wine , and after glancing with great contempt at the book of fairy stories , threw it on the floor , say . ing that she preferred real tales—things she could improve her mind on . Wbat will this world come to ? shrieked the old lady _ : improve her mind at six ! Why , at sixteen , I did not know whether I had a mind or not ! The shock was too much : the old lady took to her b...

If we have nothing else to do , But talk of those who sin . * Tis better we commence at home , And from that point begin . We have no right to Judge a man , Until he s fairly tried ; Should we not like bis company . We know the world ls wide . Some may have faults—and who has not ? The old as well as young ; We may , perhaps , for aught we know , Have fifty to their one . Ill tell you of a bettei plan , And find it works full well ; To try my own defects to cure . Before of others tell ; And though I sometimes bone to he No worse than some I know , My own shortcomings bid me let The faults of others go .

QSTYLES FOR LADIES AND CHILDREN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

QSTYLES FOR LADIES AND CHILDREN W-A pretty and desirable dress for a young girl is of navy blue cashmere or flannel . The deep box-pleated flounce is trimmed with a four-inch band of cashmere or flannel of a deep ruby-red color . The little polonaise is corded around the collar , cufts and edge of the skirt with the red goods . The skirt of the polonaise is plain and round , nearly as long as the dress , but looped high and very much wrinkled across the front . The hat for this costume should be a dark blue felt , of sailor shape , with the brim turned up all around , and a red cord around the edge . It r should be plainly trimmed with a blue ribbon passing around the crown and tied in a bow behind , with long ends . Bright plaids may be used for trimming dark goods in the same style . Little boys who do not yet wear trousers are most becomingly dressed in the dark plaids so fashionable now . For very little boys the garment is in one piece , with tbe back of the skirt kilt pleated ...

VOICES OF THE NIGHT . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

VOICES OF THE NIGHT . When bed-time comes and curtains fall , And round I go the doors to lock , Ere lamps goout , my wife doth call , Remember , dear , to wind the clock . When boots are off , and for the day All irksome cares are put to rout , I hear wife s voice from dreamland say , • Be sure you put the kitten oat . When stretched between the sheets I lie , And heavy lids have ceased to wink , • From trandle-bed there comes a cry , • I want a dwinkl I want a dwlnk !

MAKE HOME PLEASANT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

MAKE HOME PLEASANT How easy it is for the residents in large cities , especially for those whose position and wealth enable them to avail themselves of all the amenities of city life , to say constantly and didactically : Young men , young women , stay on the farm ; and how largely does the life of just such people effect the conversion of a healthy young ruralist into a wheezy , bilious , overworked , underpaid cit ! The young people in the country point to such men—the city magnates—who can be counted by the score , as evidence of what can be done by plunging into city life , oblivious of the thousands and tens of thousands who grind along a weary existence in the hearts of these ereat cities , vegetating amidst squalor and poverty , in streets and alleys , where the free air of heaven and the glorious sun light are unknown ; or , to take more common cases , the thousands who live and die without ever having known , perhaps , the actual pangs of cold and hunger , but without ever ...

MIND . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

MIND . BY A FOREIGNER . When I arrived first in the country of England , my foreign acquirement of the language did not keep me from difficulties with some words and their several meanings and applications . The old story of a person situated as I was , and the word box , made me escape from mistakes in that word . But another word was as difficult for me . It was the word mind . All the association I had before of this word were of the intellect—the soul ; naturally , there , fore , I was surprised and confused by the use of this word in circumstances utterly incompatable with my previous ideas ! Large as the power of the mind must be asJhe spirit , I found its power as a . word almostequally great ! Its use I first discoved at Calais , where I commenced the use of my knowledge of the English language . That I spoke it well was shown by the commissionaire addressing me as an Englishman , for as we passed along the pier , in the dark , to tbe Dover boat , he constantly called out , ...

TO-MORROW . This work should be done to-day . Tomorrow wont do . No one knows what to-morrow will bring . But , Uncle Granville , Aunt Jane wants this weeding finished . The weeds grow so fast this warm damp weather they need to he pulled up root and branch . ¦ Your Aunt Jane wanted the weeds pulled yesterday . Yes sir ; but I was cleaning the cellar yesterday . The cellar ought to have been cleaned the day before . You are a day behind in all your work , and you have been so ever since you came here . Why , Uncle , I try to work fast . You do work fast ; but you are never ready to begin on time . You can finish the weeding to-day , and set the plants tomorrow , but you must expect some incon TEMPTATION . veniences from counting to-morrow better than to-day .

He feared he should be deprived of some pleasure by his procrastination ; but after his uncle left him he became so much interested in his work that he quite forgot the warning , and lay down...

Ill do what I can , said a thoughtful boy , And he brought out the rake and hoe ; Cleaned out the potatoes , the beets and the peas , And the onions , row by row ; And the showers came on , and the warm , bright sun . And finished the work which the boy had begun .

TEMPTATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

TEMPTATION . Little Fritz and Preacher the dog are just about the same age and they are fast friends . But first let me tell you how he came to be palled Preacher . Until he was pretty well grown , he never happened to get a name but was just called Doggie . When Fritz s big brother came home from California , he taught Doggie ever so many funny tricks , and , among others , to sit up on his hind legs and his stump of a tail while grace was being said before meals . He learned his lesson so well and looked so grave and solemn on all these occasions that , when it was one day suggested that Doggie should have a proper name of his own , somebody suggested they should call him Preacher , and as no one suggested a better , it was adopted . Little Fritz calls him Peter , which is as near as his two-year old tongue can get to Preacher . Preacher is a very good dog , whether or not he understands that such a name entails a certain responsibility on its bearer , we can not say , but we do k...

THE ANIMAL KINGDOM [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

THE ANIMAL KINGDOM BUFFON , the great French naturalist , becomes quite enthusiastic in his description of the humming-bird . Of all animated beings , he says , the humming-bird is the most elegant in form and splendid in coloring . Precious stones and metals , artificially polished , can never be compared to this jewel of nature . The emerald , ruby and topaz sparkle in its plumage , which is never soiled by the dust of the ground , for its whole life being aerial , it rarely lights on the turf . It dwells in the air , and flitting from flower to flower , it seems to be itself a flower in its freshness and splendor . GRIMALKIN IN THE SHKOOTS . —Once during a gale , the schooner Eaglet lay in Tobermory Harbor . In furling the mainsail , a cat belonging to the vessel , without the knowledge of the sailors , got rolled up , and , while the sail continued furled , it could not escape from its confinement . For twenty-three days the sail lay untouched , and during that time poor puss wa...

OUR IMPORTS FROM FRANCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

OUR IMPORTS FROM FRANCE The imports of French goods into the United States for the year ending September 30 lh , 1879 , show an increase of ten million dollars over the preceding year . The following extract from the correspondent of the New York Tribune in France , will be interesting as throwing light upon the class of wants (?) which we are apt to call upon our French friends to supply : Notwithstanding , then , our boast that wc are year by year becoming less and less dependent on Europe for supplying our wants , here are figures which show the contrary , so far at least as articles of elegance and luxury are concerned , for it will be observed in the table I append , showing the comparative exports in 1878 and in 1879 of the twenty-five principal articles on the list , that scarcely any of them may be classed under the head of necessities . The statement argues , too , more loudly than volumes could , the return of material prosperity to the United States . When people send abr...

GLEANINGS FROM " NATURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

GLEANINGS FROM NATURE M . E . LEVASSEDR , a well-known French geographer , has invented an amusing and instructive geographical game , to which he gives the name of Tour du Monde . It is played on a large terrestrial globe divided into 232 spherical rectangles , each of which has a number , corresponding to a number on a list , indicating gains or losses , in accordance with the nature of the rectangle to which it belongs . The game is played with eighteen flags corresponding to the principal States of the world , from China , the most populous , down to Holland , the least populous . A brass slip , from pole to pole , contains eighteen holes , into which the flags are successively placed by the players at each revolution , commencing at the south pole and moving northwards . The gains and losses correspond with the nature of the facts indicated in the space above which a flag may stand when the globe stops revolving . Thus London counts thirty , Paris twenty , and so on , according...

SOCIAL DISTINCTIONS IN PURITAN BOSTON . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880

SOCIAL DISTINCTIONS IN PURITAN BOSTON . Very marked are the tokens of class and rank and social distinctions in the old Puritan town and its neighborhood . The clergy and the high magistrates were the chief in consideration and dignity . Official position secured public deference , but eligibility to office in the main depended upon previous social or personal advantage . So natural and reasonable seemed the assumption that the government should be of the better sort , and so well rooted was the custom consequently established , that even after the war of the Revolution and the recognition of an avowed democracy among us it was taken for granted , till quite down to the last half century , that , though the people were free to assign places of honor and trust to whom they would , they were bound to assign them to the class of men who would have held them under an aristocracy through birth , privilege or station . The title of Mr . or Master was carefully restricted to those who by b...
