INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS < • i In our last number , we promised to speak of the liabilities of insurance companies , and to the important place they hold in every companys annual statement . In New York a very good law exists , which prohibits an insurance company from advertising its total assets any where , even on an agent s card , without at the same time announcing its total liabilities , so that every one could tell for himself at a glance , just what was the surplus , that is , the difference between what a company had and what it owed . In many statements the gross assets are displayed in the most extensive manner , while the liabilities are , if not suppressed , at least treated with far less prominence . Every company should show at least two classes of liability , amount due for losses , either unadjusted or not due , and also the amount due for unearned premiums , that is to . say for the amount of premium received on policies not yet expired , and on which , consequen...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

LITERARY THE CLEAR VISION . I did but dream . I never knew What charms our sternest season wore . Was never yet the sky so blue . Was never earth so white before ? Till now I never saw the glow Of sunset on yon hills of snow , And never learned the boughs designs Of beauty in lis leafless lines . Did ever such a morning break As that my eastern window sees ? Did ever such a moonlight take Weird photographs of shrub and tree ? Rang ever bells so wild and fleet , The music of the Winter street ? Was ever yet a sound hy half So merry as yon school-boy s laugh ? O . Earth ! with gladness overfraught , Noadfled charm thy face hath toand ; Within my heart the change 18 wrought , My footsteps make enchanted ground . From conch of pain and curtained room . Forth to Thy light and air I come . To find In all that meets my eyes , The freshness of a glad surprise . Fair seem these Winter days and soon Shall blow the warm West winds of Spring , To set the unbound rills In tune . And hither urge ...

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IM TWENTY MESHES . ( Continued from page 75 . ) The idea of summoning hel p and having a ladder brought was so distasteful to her that she crept back round the buttress , aud sat herself once more on the shelf of rock , gazing down at the miniature garden of olive green , amber , brown and . scarlet weeds far below her in the limpid water , whose motion caused the long fronds and grass-like strands to wave and undulate , and play like living animals around the rocks to which they were attached . Those glorious groves of bright colored 9 ea growths alwajs had a great attraction for Judy , and she sat there for some little time watching them waving to and fro . forgetful now of the trouble through which she had passed , as the sun flashed down in flights of golden arrows , lighting up the dark blue depths , and being reflected back from the glistening scales of nome gorgeously tinted pollack , all ablaze with orange , green and gold , or ...

NIAGARA . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

NIAGARA . Thc shades of night had blotted out the landscape long before we reached Niagara . The northwestern horizon , however , had been for some time illuminated by Summer lightning , which soon became forked and very brilliant . As we crossed the suspension-bridge , seeing nothing but a dim whiteness in the distance , a flash unusually long and vivid lit up the whole splendor of the Falls with its pallid and ghastly light . There is perhaps no natural object in any part of tbe world which , when seen , answers so accurately to expectation as tlie Palls of Niagara . Pictures and photo , graphs without end have made them familiar in every aspect in which they can be represented . Those in what Ihey can not be represented are the last to be seen and the last to be appreciated . The first approach to them is perhaps tbe least imposing view of all . They are seen at the distance of about a mile . They are seen , too , from an elevation above the level of the top of the Falls , and th...

HOW STEEL ENGRAVINGS ARE PRINTED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

HOW STEEL ENGRAVINGS ARE PRINTED A brief explanation of the method ot producing steel-plate engravings will be of general interest since a misapprehension exists in the majority of minds on this subject . The prevailing opinion seems to be that steel engravings are strvck off by steam power at the rate of thousands per hour , very much as newspapers are printed . Oil painting is the highest department in art . Next in order is Hie steel plate , and no other style of reproduction can compare wilh it in if 3 grade of excellence . In the first place the designer furnishes the subject to be engraved , usually in the in the form of an oil painting , and often at an expense to the publisher nf thousands of dollars . Tlie design is then engraved on a highly polished plate of steel about an eighth of an inch thick . Skillful engravers must be employed in the process of engraving a creditable plate , often spending many months , or years of constant work in its completion , and frequently at...

THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

THE HOME TOO SOON . She came , how sweet and fair she came To our rude earth , and stayed awhile , A tender spirit , free from blame And lit with an angelic smile . Ah me ! that smiles so sweet should fade From lips that ln the grave are laid . She was so young , the light Intense That seemed to guard her from nor birth . Spoke but of stainless Innocence , And purity too great for earth . Ah me ! that light so pure should fade From eyes that in the grave are laid . And then she left us , as a bark White-winged sinks dimly from our sight , Or as some sweet-song burdened lark Soars upward to the realms of light . Ah me ! that youth and hope should fade When beauty ln the grave Is laid . —Chambers Journal HOME-MADE HOME DECORATIONS . A very pretty border for a table cover may be made with odd bits of bright cloth by cutting them into squares , and placing them on the cover in diamond form , with the ends overlapping each other . The edges should be turned in neatly , and sewed to the c...

THE GENTLEMAN WINS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

THE GENTLEMAN WINS If you speak the right word at the right time ; if you are careful to leave people with a good impression ; if you do not trespass upon the rights of others ; if you always think of others , as well as yourself ; if you do not put yourself unduly forward ; if you do not forgot the courtesies which belong to your position , you are quite sure to accomplish much in life , which others with equal abilities fail to do . This is where the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong . It is where you make people feel that you are unselfish and honorable and truthful and sincere . This is what society is looking for in men , and it is astonishing how much men are able to win for self respect and success and usefulness , who possess these qualities of good breeding . It is almost the turning-point of success in practical life . People will not , in the long run , have about them persons who make themselves offensive , and they yield position and influence quickl...

FOR YOUNG READERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS ST . VALENTINES DAY . It seems as if some old customs would never die away , and one of them certainly is the celebration of the 14 th day of this month—St . Valentine s clay . May day customs have long been obsolete , so has tlie old-fashioned celebration of Twelfth Night , and Hallow een is not as generally celebrated , even among the Scotch , as it was wont to be , but the lads and lasses will never give up St . Valentine s day . It is a pretty custom , and in this country it is far from being confined , as it mostly is in England , to the young men and maidens . Fatheis and daughters , mothers and sons , and old friends generally , quite often celebrate the day by sending each other some of those pretty tokens of affection , which are now lining the show cases of all the fancy goods dealers and toy shops in the country . Now-a-days , like the little boy and girl in the picture , most people in the large cities use the postofHce and the mail carriers to deliver ...

CHILDREN'S COT—ST . LUKE'S HOSPITAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

CHILDRENS COT—ST . LUKES HOSPITAL This being the first number of another month , this admirable charity is again brought to your notice . Wc are pleased to see that the Sunday Schools are beginning to take more interest in this work . They already have an organization , and can act so readily as one of the channels through which many mites can be remitted that we can not but hope they will endeavor to make this great charity one of the objects of their solicitude . The few pennies contributed by each child as his or her donation to the Child s Cot , while too small to be much missed by them will do wonders to swell the aggregate , and even the trifling self-denial exercised by the little contributors is an act of moral discipline which can not fail to be beneficial to themselves . We wish , also , to extend special thanks to friends in Michigan . CONTRIBUTIONS to the 20 th ultimo are as follows : On hand December 20 , 1879 J 170 28 KKOttlVBD SINCE .

WHAT BECOMES OF ALL THE PINS ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

WHAT BECOMES OF ALL THE PINS ? I What becomes of all the pins ? It is now as much as forty years since the daily supply of pins from the English factories was twenty millions , and ever since that time the daily average has been steadily increasing , till it now stands at fifty millions every day . Notwithstanding all this enormous supply , one can hardly be in company with a man , woman or child for a day without being asked , Have you such a thing as a pin about you ? Of our daily 50 , 000 , 000 pins , Birmingham produces 37 , 000 , 000 , leaving 13 , 000 , 000 as the production of London , Stroud and Dublin , where pins are also made .

THE TRUE WIFE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

THE TRUE WIFE . Oftentimes I have seen a tall ship glide oy against the tide as if drawn by an invisible tow-line with a hundred strong arms pulling it . Her sails unfurled , her streamers drooping , she had neither side wheel nor stern wheel ; still she moved on stately in serene triumph , as with her own life . But I knew that on the other side of the ship , hidden beneath the great bulk that swam so majestically , there was a little toilsome steam tug , with a heart of fire and arms of iron , that was tugging it bravely on ; and I knew that if the little steam tug untwined ner arms and left the ship , it would wallow and roll away , and drift hither and thither , and go off with the effluent tide BO man knows where . And so I have known more than one genius high-deck , full-freighted , wide-sailed , gay-penoned , but for the bare toiling arm and brave warm beating heart of the faithful little wife , that nestled close to him so that no wind nor wave could part them , he would hav...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

MISCELLANEOUS THE OUTLOOK OF THE WOOL TRADE . In the last number of the REVIEW we gave a summary of the Wool trade for 1879 , together with the present statistical position of the market as regards stocks of wool and manufactured goods . Below will be found an article on the same subject from the United States Economist , a paper that is supposed to represent the interests of the wool growers , manufacturers of woolen goods , and their distributers more fully than any other publication in the country . The Economist says : The position of the wool market now is a strong one . Never have stocks of all kinds been sold up so clean , ami never was Ihe demand for the staple so urgent ( except perhaps during the war period ) to fill cloth orders in advance . Woolen goods of all desirable descriptions are largely sold ahead of production in anticipation of future wauts and a rising cloth market . The latter has in no wise Kept lime with the cost of raw materials , although goods generally ...
