HINTS ON HOME ADORNMENT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

HINTS ON HOME ADORNMENT Make an effort to have your house show individuality ; let the furnishing and adornments be an expression of your own taste and culture . To do this will not require a large outlay of money , but it will require some thought , energy , and considerable hard work , especially in the furnishing of your sitting room or parlor , as it is necessary to be tasteful . Make it light , bright and cozy , a living room , in fact . Be careful not to have too much sameness in coloring , but let one color predominate , and harmonize all other colors used with that one , so that at a glance one can see that it is a blue room , a red room , or a brown room . For instance , take blue : Have the walls papered , or colored a French gray ( which has a blue tinge ) , your window shades the same color ; your curtains or lambrequins of dark blue trimmed in light colors ; or if they are in muslin or lace , finish them with blue cords or bands . Your table covers , and draperies , to ...

A PRETTY WINDOW PLANT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

A PRETTY WINDOW PLANT Ladies who never tried the experiment , may , at a trifling expense , have a beautiful hanging plant in the east or south window of the sitting room , that will grow very thrifty and retain its rich green color for mouths . Take a round piece of coarse , cheap sponge , and soak it thoroughly in warm water , until it is fully ex panded . Squeeze out most of the water , and in the opened holes of the sponge thrust rice , barley , grass , millet , and red clover-seed . Hang this improvised flowerpot where the sun will reach it during a portion of the day , and for a week after depositing the seeds above mentioned , sprinkle the sponge lightly every morning to keep the inside damp , but not wet . In a little while the seeds will commence to push otit their spiry leaves from every part of the sponge , and falling down in graceful tendrils as they rapidly increase , there will soon be formed a pretty mass of flowing green fringe , that will remain bright and cheerful...

VALENTINE DAY IN "YE OLDEN TIME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

VALENTINE DAY IN YE OLDEN TIME Lydgate , the monk of Bury , refers to the custom of observing St . Valentine s Day in his time ( the beginning of the 15 th century ) , in the following quaint verse : Seynte Valentyne of custom yeere by yeere . Men have an usaunoe ln tbls region To loke and serene Cuplde s Kalendere , And chose theyre choyse by great aHeccIone ; Such as have pride with Cuplde s moclonne , Takyng theyre choyse as theyre sort * dothe falle . In an old number of St . Nicholas ( 1876 ) we find the following account of a very funny valentine . It consisted of the rib of a small animal wrapped in a white satin ribbon , which was tied in true lover s knot . The gift was sent to a bachelor , accompanied by the following suggestive verses : • Go contemplate this lonely sign ! Haste thee away to Reason s shrine , And listen to her voice ; No more Illusive shades pursue , To happiness this gives the clew , Make but a prudent choice . Till Adam had a partner given , Much as fair...

SUSAN-THE STORY OF A PIG [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

SUSAN-THE STORY OF A PIG BT EBEN E . REXFORD . Susan was one of the cunningest little pigs any one ever saw , and that pigs are cunning , while they stay pigs , I think no one will deny . But after they outgrow their early pighood they someway lose all of their cunning ways , and I think it would be a diflfcult matter to find any thing more uninteresting than they are . Susan was black and white , and looked like a patch-work bed-quilt , composed of those two colors . She had a white spot over one eye , and a black one over the other , and as the side of her head having the white spot was black , and the other side with the black spot was white , you can imagine what a comical looking thing she was much better than I can describe it to you . Her tail had two twists in it , and the tip of her ears had a very graceful droop in them , thus giving her an air of distinction which her brothers and sisters , whose ears were of the straight up-and-down sort , didnt have . • Susan is a rathe...

A CLEVER SPIDER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

A CLEVER SPIDER A correspondent of Nature says : In a letter I have just received from my brother at Rondebosch , near Cape Town , he narrates the following : On Friday I was much interested in watching a spider and a male glow-worm . The spider was a common long-legged house spider who had a web in the corner ot the room . It was an aristocratic spider , in fact . Presently a male glow-worm flew into the web , and in a few minutes the spider had him wound round and round till no Egyptian mummy was more securely housed . Just as this operation was being finished , a second glow-worm flew into the web , a long way from the first . Off goes the spider , and soon he , too , was encased in silk . Then I noticed the spider went three times backward and forward between the head of glow-worm No . 2 and a main strand ot his web . After this he went round cutting all the threads around tlie glow-worm until it hung by the head strands alone . The spider then fixed a thread to the tail end , a...

SOMETHING ABOUT CORK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

SOMETHING ABOUT CORK The tree from which cork is obtained is a speciesof oak , which grows plentifully in the south of France , Spain , Algeria , and some parts of Italy ; but it is from the Atlantic side of France , from Portugal , that we obtain the larger part of our supply . The tree is rather handsome in appearance—more so , indeed , than the oak when full grown . It appears to be designed specially to supply its valuable bark , for the wood is of little value for building purposes , although it is fair for fuel . When it is twenty years old or thereabouts it periodically throws off its bark , after it has grown of prodigious thickness , and then it begins to form a new covering . It has been found best , however , not to let the tree have its own way , for the bark thrown off is not quite satisfactory . Nature needs a little help , and the bark is artificially removed by tlie following process : In the months of July and August , when the sap flows plentifully , a circular inc...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880

MISCELLANEOUS THE PROSSER CAR . On the flrst page of this paper we present two cuts showing this car , mention of which was made in our issue of April , 1879 . Figure 1 , Gives a side view of the car with the cylinders uncovered standing upthe track . Figure 2 , Shows the car finished off , with a box car mounted over the cylinders which may be used for carrying freight , doing away with the objection , that cylinder cars must be returned empty , as only fitted for canying grain . This invention seems to have passed the theoretical stage . The actual use of the cars upon the track it is claimed , bus demonstrated its practicability past all doubt , and has proved that the inventor , working in accordance with known mechanical laws , has furnished a means by which a given weight of grain can be moved with one-tenth the power required by the present method . The wear , tear , and cost of handling are also greatly reduced . The car as at present constructed consists simply of large cyl...

All rays raise thyme , time raises all ; And through thewhole , hole wears , A wit in writing right , may write It wright , and still be wrong . For write and rite are neither right , And dont to write belong . Beer often brings a bier to man , Coughing a coffin brings . And too much ale will make us ail As well as other things . The person lies who says he lies When he is but reclining ; And when consumptive folks decline Tbey all decline declining , A quail dont quail before a storm ; A bough will bow before it ; We can not rein the rain at all ; No earthly powers reign oer it , The dyer dies awhile , then dies : To dye hes always trying Until upon his dying bed , „ He thinks no more of dyeing .
