MOTHER SHIPTON'S PROPHECY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

MOTHER SHIPTONS PROPHECY . A transatlantic arithmetician has figured out that the world is to come to an end next year , 1880 ; and as Mother Shipton fixed the date a year or two later , he is still further convinced that his calculations are correct . This estimable lady s prophecy is said to have been written in the year 1485 , and anticipates many of the wonders which have come to pass since that remote period . Carriages without horses shall fro . And accidents All the world with woe ; Around the world thought shall fly In the twinkling ot an eye : Water shall yet more wonders do , Now strange , yet shall be true . Thus she begins ; and though it may be said that accidents have been common to humanity from the very earliest records , and that Mother Shipton s reference to hydraulic science is very vague , discoveries as the application of steam and electricity seem to be foreshadowed in her rhymes . The world upside down shall be , « And gold be found at the root of the tree , A...

THE JIBBING HORSE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE JIBBING HORSE There are many ways of starting a jibbing horse . Indeed , as for a human ailment , everybody has a different receipt — but the right one . Some advocate the Dutchman s plan—build a fire under him . This is effectual , as it is calculated to render the animal s nerves steady . Try it , by all means ; and if that does not do , pour sand in his ears . Never mind if you do make him deaf for life—who wants a jib r bing horse ? If the sand trick wont work , cast of the traces , tie his tail fast to the cart , and start him off . After this dodge he may never sulk again , but the chances are he niay be minus a tail . Never mind — who wants a jibbing horse ? If this plan fails , stand in front of him and blow in his nostrils . In wonder at the ridiculous appearance ol * the fool under his nose , he may forget the cause of his stubbornness , and move oil . If he doesnt , let three or four men catch him by the head , and drag him along . If the last is no go , thrash the hi...

LITERARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

LITERARY . I SAW FROM THE BEACH . I saw from the beach , when the morning was shining . A bark o er the waters move gloriously on ; I came when the sun o er that beach was declining , Ihe bark was still there , but the waters were gone . , And such ls the fate of our lifes early promise , So passing the spring-tide of Joy we have known ; Each wave that we danced on at morning ebbs from us . And leaves us , at eve , on tbe bleak shore alone . Ne er tell me of glories serenely adorning The close of our day , the calm eve of our night ; Give me back , give me back the wild freshness ol morning , Her clouds and her tears are worth evening s best light Ob , who would not welcome that moment s returning . \ When passion first waked a new life through his frame , And his soul—like the wood that grows precious ln burning—Gave out all Its sweets to love s exquisite flame ? — Thomas Moore .

THE USES OF RUBBISH [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE USES OF RUBBISH The utilization of rubbish is one of the most remarkable , and well nigh the most romantic , feature of the economic changes which are going on in the world of scientific industry . As the cunning Frenchman takes tlie bones which duller . cooks throw away , and reproduces them for the table in many different palatable forms , so chemistry is rapidly taking tlie world s rubbish and evolving from it products of use nnd and beauty , and it usually happens that the • rubbish whicli is most obnoxious and apparently the most worthless yields the richest results iu the laboratories of science . The utilization of coal-tar , which is produced in the distillation of gas , is one of the most interesting illustrations of our subject . Out of this apparently worthless fluid tlie skill of the chemist has evolved more than fifty different substances of great value in the arts and various industries , among thein benzole , napthalene , tolule , paraffine , ammonia , and aniline...

THE ROBBINS FAMILY WASHER ¦ BLEACHER AGENTS WANTED . In bringing this article before the public it becomes necessary to take Into consideration THE ART OF CLEANSIHG FABRICS , which is yet so Imperfectly understood .

MEAT AND BREAD FOR FOREIGN MOUTHS .-NO . I . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

MEAT AND BREAD FOR FOREIGN MOUTHS .-NO . I . ( Prepared for the FARMERS REVIEW . Forty years ago meats arid breadstuffs made a small show in the export tables of tbe United States . Seven-tenths of the value of agricultural exports , from 1 S 36 to 1810 , were made up of unmanufactured coiton . Breadstuffs constituted one-tenth during the same period . Twenty years ago , with a large Increase of cotton exports , the proportion between 1855 and 1860 was reduced to six-tenths , while that of breadstuffs had advanced from one-tenth to one-sixth . A great revolution has resulted since that period . While the production of cotton is greater than ever , and its exportation equal to that of any former period , the value of Breadstuffs and meats exported lias been for several years a larger figure than the value of cotton . In 1878 the value of these food supplies amounted to $ 305 , 000 , 000 of the $ 53 ii . 000 . 000 of agricultural exports , and cotton $ 191 , 000 , 000 — 50 per cent , ...
