. Tariff Changes in France . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

. Tariff Changes in France . It seems that it makes a difference whether it is your ox or mine , in French Legislation . Two bills have been introduced in the French Chamber of Deputies , proposing modifications of the tariff . The first , presented by twenty-two deputies , deals only with the duties on cereals , which it would have fixed as follows , indicated in francs , per quintal : European production . Direct Indirect importation , importation . Wheat 5 8 . G 0 Wheat flour 9 12 . GO Oats and rye 3 0 . 00 Ou , c and rye meal 5 8 . C 0 Barley 3 6 . 60 Malt 3 . 80 7 . 40 Maizo and rice 3 G .

California Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

California Agriculture . The genial climate of California has added largely to the list of cultivated plants of the United States . Among these are many that are generally considered inter-tropical ; among these again are the melon fruit plant , some of the citrus fruits , bananna and others . The latest acquisitions are certain species of bamboo , of Japan , Northern China and high altitudes of the Himalayas . The propagation of the genuine bamboo , is very simple . Division of a strong plant with as much soil as is possible is the safest method , and will soon give good results . Pieces of the runners may be made to grow , but they are not as certain as the divided plants . They may also be grown from seed , but the process is so slow that it is not to be commended . One of the bamboos long cultivated in California , and which grows satisfactorily on a variety of soil , is known botanically as Arundo donax . As an ornamental plant it is quite useful , being a rapid grower , and it...

Montana Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

Montana Cattle . It seems now to be conceded that Montana contains most excellent feeding grounds for cattle , but that as a breeding locality it is not a success . This might naturally have suggested itself from the very nature of the country—full of grass in summer , but not a good agricultural country generally . _ The Northern Pacific Railway has carried thence east this season 75 , 000 bullocks , and the Canadian Pacific claim to have carried 10 , 000 . As many as 3 , 000 is supposed to have been carried from Southern Montana , by the Utah & Northern Railroad . Had it not been for the depression in the Chicago market , for range cattle , over 100 , 000 would have been tho possible output this year . The surplus will ho held over for another year . The shipping age of steers is at four years old . At three years they are undeveloped , and at five years they are rough and leggy . The trying time in Montana for steers is in the winter . Deep snows act unfavorably , pre...

A Swindling Advertisement . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

A Swindling Advertisement . A letter from one of our subscribers from Bucyrus , Ohio , inquires about an advertisement which has appeared in the FARM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN , with the word Money to catch the eye and saying Send us 6 cents for specifications . The letter goes on to say that the li centswere remitted , but no reply received . This is one of the kind of advertisements against which we cautioned our readers in our issue of December 12 . We confess that we had not noticed the nature of the advertisement with sufficient scrutiny , and particularly because it came to us from a reliable agency who knew our wishes and principles in this thing . We have examined into it enough to know the advertisement is under a false name . No doubt it is a swindle . We have thrown it out and the contract for some $ 33 , a * we are determined to protect our readers from all such sharpers . Our thanks are due to our Bucyrus friend and we will be obliged to any of our readers who will call our ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

THE SAME OLD STORY . She read until she could not seeDid Ivanhoe e er weary ? Then dropped the book upon her knee . And said her life was dreary . Prom day to day I still must tread The same dull round of duty , — Of darning socks and baking bread Without one glimpse of beauty . From week to week my landmarks are—A sermon dull on Sunday ; On Friday night th % Plumvillc Star ; The weekly wash on Monday . And oh 1 there s never a line of grace And never a hint of glory . She sighed , and lengthened her pretty face—It s always the some old story . She dried her eyes and curled her hair , And went to the conference meeting , From the garden gate to the vestry stair The self-Borne words repeating . At lost the final hymn was sung . And all the prayers were ended , When one , from the door-way crowd among , Her homeward steps attended . They left at length the village street , And sprang the low wall over . To cross through Captain Feaslee s wheat And Deacon Bascombe s clover . The moon s...

YOUNG FOLKS . THAT GIRL . BV GEO . COOPEK . Sometimes silent , in a cornerIs it matches , needles , pins ? For some mischief must be brewing , When this quietude begins . Bouncing , shouting down the stairway , Setting mother in a whirl . Boys are noisy , very often ; But yon ought to hear that girl I Setting out her Betseys , Marys , Janes and Marthas on the floor , She will dress and pet and scold them . As her mother did before . Then she dresses up for shopping , Putting on her ma s delaine , And a shawl or two , if handy , Just to make a splendid train . Now she gives advice , so gravely , If her older brother chance , For some little fault to linger Neath his father s serious glance . She is full of dainty graces , Very conscious of them , too ; If she kisses you while scolding , What on earth are you to do ! Sweet , bewitching little woman I Bo as roguish OR you will ; Long watch for me at the window . And my heart with sunshine fill . Surely mother cannot mean it . When she ...

How Lincoln Came to Let His Beard Grow . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

How Lincoln Came to Let His Beard Grow . When Lincoln was nominated for the presidency , and the country was flooded with poor portraits of him , Grace Bedell , a little girl of thirteen , residing at Westfield , N . Y ., remarked to her mother : He would look better if he wore whiskers , and I mean to write and tell him so . She laughingly assented , and to continue the story in Grade s own words : I proceeded to give him my name , age , place of residence , my views of his fitness for the presidency , opinion of his personal appearance , and that I thought he would be much improved if he would cultivate whiskers , adding as an inducement that if he would , I would try my best to coax my two Democratic brothers to cast their votes for him . In my heart of hearts I feared that this rather free criticism might give offense , and so tried to soften the blow by assuring him that I thought the rail fence around his picture looked real pretty , and ended by asking him if he had no time t...

OUR LETTER BOX . PEBSCOTT , OKT ., Dec . 9 , 1885 . DEAB EDITOB : Not having seen any letters from Canada , I thought J would write . I am a little girl ten vears old and live on a farm of 300 acres , four miles above Prescott , on the bank of the St . Lawrence river ; but I go to school here . I study reading , writing , arithmetic , drawing and music . My father takes your paper , and likes it very much . Hoping to see this in the paper , I remain Yours truly , KOBLEEN MUBDOCH . We are always delighted to hear from our little Canadian cousins , and especially so when we receive such a neatly written letter as yours . VENICE , ITALY , Nov . 2 , 1885 . DEAR EDITOB : I thought it might interest some of your young readers to hear about this old Italian city . It is situated upon seventytwo little islands connected , by 306 bridges , scarcely any of which will admit of any kind of horse-carriage . Instead of using hacks and carriages as they do in America , they use boats , called gond...

LITERATURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

LITERATURE . Book Notices . One Tears Sketch Book is a rare production by a true poet-artist . The editor Irene E . Jerome , of Chicago , modestly claims only the credit of illustrating and arranging . But the introduction , entitled Natures Art Gallery is a prose-poem of fine conception , bringing vividly forward in their natural procession , the birds and flowers of the different seasons . The balljld-singer and the troubadour , The street musicians of the heavenly city . They come early this Spring from the sunny South , —the bobolinks , the robins , the song-sparrows . Th % had a tryst to keep with the violets , the anemones , the cock-robins . The illustrations , whether pf particular months or of the seasons in general , are both by the exquisite handling of the pencil and by the poetic selections , from such authors as Whittier , Bryant , Aldrich , Lucy Larcbm , -H . H . George MacDonald , and the like , and it is impossible to say whether the poems were attached to grace the...

THE MARKETS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885

THE MARKETS . The Business Outlook . It is always pleasant , especially at the advent of Christmas , and the new year , to chronicle something pleasing . There is much for congratulation , besides the generally bountiful crops of tho nation , and the full garnered cheer of the farmsteads of North America . Crops generally have been good from the Atlantic to the Pacific , and from the outlying forests of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico . This has already reacted upon the general markets , and the future of next year s operations looks cheerful . With plentiful crops all business is brisk . When crops are bad trade is the first to suffer . It looks now as though everything was on the upward turn The gamblers on the stock markets in New York were the first to rush a boom ; but suckers were scarce . Then millers undertook to manipulate prices of wheat ; wheat went around them . Then packers tried to bear prices , - in order to get rid of their surplus stock . It did not work to their satis...
