STORING ICE AND SUMMER BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
STORING ICE AND SUMMER BUTTER Mr . J . C . Carpenter , who Wishes to put up ice for family use , for cooling the Summer milk of eighty cows , and for keeping their butter till Fall , should estimate the quantity needed for the milk , and then store twice as much to allow for waste and other demands . A house for the sole purpose of preserving ice may be very cheap and plain . It requires only to pack the ice as closely as possible , so it shall be free from open spaces , and then cover it—sides and top—two feet thick with sawdust , remembering to provide for the ready escape of water occasioned by the melting of ice , by placing something like billets of wood between the ice and the ground , and at the same time protecting it from currents of air . The ice will be preserved all the better if the siding which holds the sawdust in place is open enough to allow of a pretty free evaporation of moisture from the sawdust , and there should also be good ventilation over the ice to permit m...
THE D A I R [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
THE D A I R \ The distressed butter-maker , who , with a nice milk-house , and cool running water , can neither make good butter , nor gather it in any other form than fish-eggs , may be well-assured there is something radically wrong in the management . My advice is to skim early , as soon as sourness is perceptible , and not to delay the churning until the cream gets old and very sour , and to begin churning at 60 ° instead of 67 ° . When butter comes into the form of fish eggs , it is time to turn into the churn cold water or cold brine enough to reduce the mass to about 35 ° , and then bj * churning a little while slowly , tho fish eggs will become hard and distinct , and the butter will be in its very best condition for washing the buttermilk entirely out of it and getting it already for salting , without any working at all . Then work the salt iu with us little labor as possible , and when it has stood long enough for the salt to become all dissolved and to strike in , it will...

THE FAMINE IN IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
THE FAMINE IN IRELAND Every day fresh news of the terrible famine in Ireland comes to us laden with details which are becoming more aad more terrible . We hear of two-thirds of the families in one small section , whose sole food for weeks has consisted of Swedish turnips , and even these are now failing them . A gentleman writing to the Viceroy speaks of the people coming into town on market day as pale , thin and bloodless , silent and without a smile—their condition is absolutely without hope . Another reliable report speaks of 7 , 000 or 8 , 000 people in one district absolutely without food , fuel or credit ; that , although they had paid their rents honorably and peacefully to the landlord who owns nearly all that parish , he had turned a deaf ear to their appeal for employment . On the estates of the late notorious Earl of Leitrim , whose death was succeeded by three years litigation between his nephew , the present earl , and another heir , Col . Clements , which has just bee...

By means of models he explained the anatomy of the horse s foot ; described the more important diseases incident to it , gave the symptoms , cause and treatment of each , and also showed how lameness in the foot could be distinguished from lameness in the shoulder .

RAILROAD LEGISLATION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
RAILROAD LEGISLATION The advocates of the Reagan bill tor the Government control of railways are meeting with determined opposition in Congress . This opposition is instigated , of course , by the railway managers . Still it is having a good effect throughout the country . Business men as well as farmers are uniting in sending petitions to members of Congress for the passage of thc bill . Chicago merchants are arousing themselves , as they see the vast combinations that are being formed for the control ot the leading lines of the country . All the shippers and producers have something at stake in this matter . If once fairly aroused , their efforts will be irrisistible , even with the millions of railroad money arrayed against them A general lowering of freight rates might silence public clamor in a degree , but the friends of Government control of railroads should not cease their agitation measures , even if this course of action should be adopted by the companies . There is a prin...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS Fire losses in the State of Wisconsin , during Ihe year 1879 , according to the reports received at the office of ihe Insurance Commissioner of that State , far exceed those of any year since 1870 , except 1875 , when the burning of Oshkosh swelled tiie amount beyond all ordinary proportions . In the Commissioner s report wo find tiie following significant statement : From the best attainable information it is safe to say tliat one-bird of the losses in this Slate dining the past year were through incendiary fires . If the estimate is correct , then over $ 830 , 000 were paid by tlie people of this Stale , through Insurance Companies , last year , to the citizens of tlie Stale who proved the most unscrupulous and dishonest . This is an enormous burden to ho laid upon the people of tlie Suite for such a purpose , equaling nearly one-half nf the State tax , and it should lead them to consider some way of escaping from it . Tr . e Commissioner recommends some stringent ...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
LITERARY THE CHURCH SPIDER . Two spiders , so the story goes . Upon a living bent , Entered the meeting house one day , And hopefully were heard to say , Here we shall have at least fair play With nothing to prevent . Each chose his place and went to work ; The light webs grew apace ; One on the altar spun his thread , But shortly came the sexton dread , And swept him off , and so , half dead . He sought another place . Ill try the pulpit next , said he , There surely Is a prize : The desk appears so neat and clean , I m sure no spider there has been ; Besides how often have I seen The pastor brushing flies . He tried the pnlplt . but alas ! His hopes proved visionary ; With dusting brush the sexton came , And spoiled his geometric game . Nor gave him time nor chance to claim , The rights of sanctuary . At length half starved , and weak , and lean He sought his former neighbor . Who had nowgrown so sleek and round , He weighed the fraction of a pound , And looked as if the art hed f...
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IN TWENTY MESHES . ( Continued from page 91 . ) MESH VIII . —CAUGHT IN TWO NETS . Meanwhile the captain walked quietly hy Master St . Just s house , and stared hard at the windows and then down tlie garden ; but he could only see tlie old servant with a handkerchief tied over her head , and her apron pinned up to form a great pocket into which she was picking beans . He did not like to walk back yet , so thought he would go on a quarter of a mile lo where the pathway zigzagged down the cliff to the shore . There he could roam about for awhile and then walk back , for this was tlie second time he had been by Master St . Justs house that morn - ing , and he felt that it would seem strange to go by too often . He sauntered on , listening to the lark singing over tlie corn on the one hand , and watching the gulls idly floating over the sea on the other ; while every now and then a powdered-headed jackdaw , with his light gray eye and impude...
ODD WAYS OF PUTTING THINGS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
ODD WAYS OF PUTTING THINGS Putting things in an odd way is the vocation of professed wits and humorists ; but they are not permitted at all times to monopolize the privilege , as we shall proceed to show . Mr . Naismyth , a celebrated Edinburgh dentist , finding himself inconvenienced by the noise made by the students of the Free Church College , wrote to request that they would be more moderate in their applause , or find some other way of expressing it than stamping on the floor . Dr . Chalmers tbe well-known divine laid the dentists complaint before the offenders , and begged them to avoid giving cause for its repetition , saving he would be sorry indeed to give offense to a gentleman so much in the mouths of the public . When President of the United States , Abraham Lincoln was inclined to a rough and ready style of argument . Tt is a disgrace to the country , said a disgusted Government clerk , that such a boor should be President ! What made him say so was this : Ho had asked ...
