SKILLED WORKMEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884

SKILLED WORKMEN . The tendency of modern mechanics is toward specialization . What tho artisan loses in skill expanded through many trades , is gained in value and rapidity of production when he is confined to one branch . The vast number and minute divisions of labor offer innumerable chances for individual adaptation . After long practice , encouraged by good wages and the Anglo-Saxon innate desire to excel , workmen exhibit amazing skill . The highest excellence can only thus bo attained . Ho who endeavors to excel in all the professions , excels in none . Tho jack-of-trades-man is usually a loafer . In life in the United States competition is close , and an average good , mental or mechanical , receives less than a just reward . If this was not so , progress would be snail-like . Workmen ought to confine themselves to a specialty . Excel iu some specific branch . The specialist , whether in law , medicine or mechanics , is the one who commands place and salary , for superior exc...

SLOW HORSES [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884

SLOW HORSES While the speed of the horso is quite an important consideration , yet tho slow horso also is useful , and at times far more desirable than his faster companion . It is one thing to sit in a sulky and hold tho reins behind a fast horse , but to follow the plow or cultivator from sunrise to sunset is quite another matter . But very few farmers care for fast horses to tho plow , for the reason that the animals are exhausted sooner and tho work is not done so thoroughly as when the plow is drawn by a pair of slow , steady , regular paced horses . When cultivating , especially on small farms , where vegetables are grown , and the width of rows is narrow , great care must sometimes bo exercised in order to properly perforin the work without injury to the growing crops , and the slow horse , though not able to go over tho ground quickly , draws the cultivator at a pace which permits the operator to avoid covering the small plants , and also to elevate the cultivator easily in ...

HUMOROUS PA . PERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884

HUMOROUS PA . PERS . People will laugh if they have to pay for it . Every paper , grave or gay . lias its column of humor , manufactured , worked over or most frequently stolen bodily . There are professional humorists that strive at so much a column to create smiles . There are many papers whose entire pages are devoted to the business of securing laughter . And it is but just to say our most successful ones , financially , are those whose tendencies are downward , whose moral tone is lower than low comedy . They have no reverence , andirreverence leads to infidelity . Their coarseness , vulgarity , the profanation of sacred subjects , the certain but indirect ridicule of parental authority , tho humorous parade of domestic infelicity , the recital of criminal news that calls for pity or tears , in a humorous , heartless manner , all this tends to lowei public taste , purity of speech , and cleanliness of public morals . The tendency of the stories of Bad Boys is vicious . Our crim...

TENNYSON'S BARONETCY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884

TENNYSONS BARONETCY . A great muss has been made about Tennysons acceptance of a baronetcy . Now , we would like to know whoso business it is ? He will not write worse poetry , and it is not too much to hoi > o that he will continue to mind his own business in the future as he has in the past . Because lie has written immortal poems and delighted the Atlantic side of tho world , is no proof that he is public property to bo pigeon-holed or not as the public see lit . To our mind the case is this : Tennyson achieved the full success of human distinction by labor and genius . He has very measurably delighted and elevated tho race ; tho people have individually given a few pence each and made him a millionaire . He has refused scores of high dignities offered him . For reasons of his own , and which none of usintermeddlers know , he accepts a place in the peerage . Then ? A long disapprobative howl across the continents . Bah ! Let us quote : Then the substance of my query . ...

The Progress of Disease . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 February 1884

The Progress of Disease . We so unwilling to admit the presence of disease , fall a readyprey to the grim destroyer whose insidious approach , subtle progress and unseen workings , develops such fatal results . Let us be warned in time , lest it be too late . Are You Sure It Is Consumption ? Many thousands fully believe they or their friends are being hurried toward the grave by that terrible disease Consumption , and are being yreated for that disease , when they have only CATARRH in some of its many types ; the symptoms in many forms of these diseases are quite similar and can easily be mistaken . Catarrh , unalarming . ;; its character and beginnings , neglected , developes and spreads , and in time prisons the vital organs , until it finally is no longer ONLY CATARRH , but some disease that gives but little hope of health or life . We do not claim to cure Consumption , but are fully convinced from the results of our daily practice that we can sa d restore to health many who now ...
