A HEN STORY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
A HEN STORY . A gentleman resident of the Sixth district is telling his friends of the singular and wonderful performance of a favorite hen of his . This hen is one of the best layers he has , and his stock of poultry is a large one , but for some time she has manifested a miserly desire to accumulate a large number of eggs , and has in many ways shown her objection to being deprived of an egg after having laid it . About ten days ago it was noticed that the hen would come from the chickenhouse cackling , and giving the usual notice of duty done , but careful search for the eggs thus announced failed to find them . This went on for a week , and then by an accident the point of an egg was discovered projecting from the soil below the nests in the chicken-house . Investigation brought to light the egg , and further search revealed the fact that six other eggs were concealed in the same manner . The day following the discovery the hen was watched , and was seen to carefully dig a hole ...

THE PUBLIC LANDS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE PUBLIC LANDS Mr . Read , one of the special commissioners sent here from England , last Fall , to report upon American agriculture , in a recent talk to his constituents at home , said , among other things , that he found great land monopolies here , though the theory of our legislation is against them . He had visited one farm of 22 , 000 acres , and another of 70 , 000 acres . Although in theory the laws of America were against large estates , and enacted that no one should have more than 160 acres , those laws were evaded . If Mr . Read did not explain that he meant the government disposal of the public domain under the homestead and similar acts , he gave his hearers a very erroneous impression . He should have remarked that there is no limit to the right to purchase of some classes of our public lands , save the length of the purse of the would-be purchaser . He might also truly have said , what he probably very well knew—certainly should have known—that by purchase from in...

OUR FUTURE BEEF SUPPLY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
OUR FUTURE BEEF SUPPLY In addition to opening up the largest and most productive wheat section in the world the construction of the Northern Pacific railroad promises to prove an equally important factor in increasing our beef supply by giving us direct communication with the best grazing sections of Montana , a section that all practical cp . tlie nien who have examined it are unreserved in pronouncing the best cattle and sheep range in America . Situated in a latitude that derives all the benefit of what is known as the Japan current , the Winters are sufficiently ujild to allow stock to keep in good order during the Winter without any other feed than the bunch grass , which grows in profusion on the mountains , table lands , valleys and foot hills . This grass cures during the Summer and the atmosphere being dry , it retains its nutriment on the same principle that hay does in the stack . The grass is also more nutritious than those of the States or the buffalo grasses of Colorad...
THE PUBLIC DEBT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE PUBLIC DEBT On the 1 st of July , 1879 , the public debt of the United States was distributed as follows : 3 percents $ 14 , 000 , 000 4 percents . 741 , 522 , 000 4 i percents 250 , 000 , 000 5 percents 508 , 440 , 350 6 percents 283 , 681 , 350 Total interest bearing debt .. $ 1 , 797 , 643 , 700 The annual interest charged on which is $ 83 , 773 , 778 . This interest charge is nearly eleven million dollars less than it was on the same date last year . This reduction was effected solely by the conversion of 5 and 6 per ceftts into 4 and 4-1- per cents . This will be seen by the following figures : On June 30 , 78 , the 4 per cents amounted to a little over ninety-eight million dollars . On June 30 , 79 , to over seven hundred and forty-one millions ; and the 4 J- - J per cents had also increased slightly in the same time , and one hundred and ten millions over the same date in 1877 . On the other hand the 5 and 6 per cents had decreased between the 30 th of June , 1878 , and t...

THE Scott County Mutual Insurance Company , which includes Fulton and Montpelier townships , in Muscatine county , Iowa , have Miad had luck in 1879 , as the insurance cost the new policy-holders a trifle less ( including fees and losses ) than 2 per cent , for the one year s insurance , and they are not feeling very happy .

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
LITERARY THE ORPHANS RESCUE . The following poem , by Cora Van De Mark , describes one of our beautiful premium pictures . Read notices of Boston press commending this steel engraving : Twas near the close of a Summer-day ; The clouds bad wept their grief sway , And left a sky so iTlgfftand clear , It seemed that Heaven Itself drew near . A boat . In which two children played , By swollen waves was gently swayed ; Til , loosened from the stake tbat bound And ho d It to t ie beach aground , Jt floated quickly from the shore , As tbougn the cataracts deep roar Had charmed it , by a magic power , To hasten to its doom tbat hour . The frightened children saw the fate That must their little hark await ; The boy , accustomed to ber care , Turned to his sister , ln despair . But through her veins what impulse thrilled , And all her sensate being filled With such a wild , resistless hope ! She seized , with steady hand the rope , Aud standing with one arm upraised , With cairn , heroic face...
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OP A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OP A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IN TWENTY MESHES . ( Continued from page 107 . ) Michael Pigou stopped talking to Tom Orgus and proposed some cold grog ; but the old sailor declined , and their conversation went on—in an absent manner , though , as far as Pigeu was concerned—for he kept his eyes on Harry Brack till he was out of sight , and then hastily parted from the old sailor , who stood watching him . That chapll drink hisself into a madhouse afore he s done , muttered the old sailor . Well , I wont be one to keep him there , for hang me , if Ill hardly so much as drink with him again . Why s he going up the cliff ? said Pijrou to himself , as he followed Harry Brack , and saw the direction he had taken . The young man s face changed color as a thought flashed across his brain , and his hands opened and shut in a curious manner , as he stood thinking for a few moments , and then walked sharply towards Master St . Justs house for the second time . Hed better jump ...
"DOING"HOTEL KEEPERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
DOINGHOTEL KEEPERS Two fellows whose money was almost entirely expended , determined that a wealthy hotel keeper should be the means of replenishing their purses . According , ly , one of them giving up what money he liad to the other , entered the premises of the selected victim , while his confederate kept out of sight . The visitor enquired forthe 1 andlord , to whom hepropounded the query : Can you give me a good dinner ? Of course the resources of the establishment were equal to such a demand , and in a few minutes the good dinner was served and duly discussed . Then came the qucs-. tion of payment ; but the guest bad no money , ami pointed out to his host that , had he possessed the needful , he should have ordered what he had consumed , in the usual manner ; that he had simply sought information concerning the ability of the house and the inclination of its owner to supply him with a good dinner , and was much obliged for the same . A policeman was called in ; hut his decisio...
THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE HOME PERSEVERANCE . One step and then another . And the longest walk ls ended ; One stitcn and then another , And the largest rent is mended ; One brick upon another , And the highest wall Is made ; One flake upon another , And the deepest snow ls laid . So the little coral workers , By their slow and constant motion . Have built those pretty Islands In the distant dark blue ocean , And the noblest undertakings Man s wisdom Ihath conceived , By oft-repeated effort Have been patiently achieved . Then do not look disheartened On the work you have to do , And say that such a mighty task You never can get through ; But just endeavor day by day Another point to gain , And soon the mountain which you feared Will prove to be a plaint Rome was not built In a day , The ancient proverb teaches , And Nature , by her trees and flowers . The same sweet sermon preaches . Think not of far-off duties , But of duties which are near , And having once begun to work , Resolve to persevere .
IN THE FLOWER 6 ARDEN .-N 0 . 4 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
IN THE FLOWER 6 ARDEN .-N 0 . 4 PETUNIAS . Next to the Phlox , for a brilliant and constant show of flowers , comes the Petunia . And no garden is complete without it . The varieties are many . From pure white the flowers shade into pink , some with white throats , and others with white edges , crimson , and a deep rich purplethat is , purple when looked at in one light , and a velvety wine color when viewed from another lookout . The plants begin ta blossom when quite young , and are never without flowers from that time until severe cold weather comes . They spread rapidly , often forming clumps four feet across , with dozens of stems sent up from one root , each stem branching freely . The plants form more compact masses , and produce more and better flowers , if the ends are cut off , thus encouraging new growth . Por cut flowers we have no better plant , unless the quality of flowers is taken into consideration , and the blossoms of the Petunia are not coarse , if the foliage is...
