A FIRST SMOKE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

A FIRST SMOKE . A youth who had been making a man oi himself by smoking the other day , has since shown a peculiar aversion to the instruments used in that interesting occupation , and matches more especially . His purchases were a clay pipe of the dudheen type , half an ounce of shag , and a ha - penny box of matches—this comparatively cheap outfit , it may be well to state , being less in keeping with his own exalted opinion of what was due to such a respectable personage as he considers himself to be , than with the pile ot rhino which garnished the interior of bis breeches pocket . Those of our readers who trouble themselves to recall the days when they themselves were entering upon the glorious career of a smoker , will ri * . member that the early stages of such a career are beset with difficulties of no trivial nature . In the first place our hero experienced some difficulty in so loading his pipe as to secure a good draw . Then he found that the wind had a tendency to exting...

FOR YOUNG READERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS VALENTINES IN THE POST OFFICE . On St . Valentines Day tlfcre was received for delivery in the carriers department of the Chicago post office , not less than 100 , 000 valentines . Of these the carriers managed , by making extra exertions , to deliver 75 , 000 . The remainder had to wait over until the Monday following . People , and especially young people , lit tle imagine the immense amount of additional labor they impose upon post office clerks and carriers . In Chicago a large number of the carriers walk about seventeen miles daily in making their regular mail delivery , but it is estimated that the additional amount of walking entailed up . on each of them by the delivery of valentines was not less than ten miles . The REVIEW has called attention lo the trouble occasioned by the carelessness of people in addressing their letters . The same trouble seems to prevail very largely among the valentine senders , and much sweetness , all bought and paid for , too , ...

THE SINGER AND THE CHILD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

THE SINGER AND THE CHILD A THUK STOKY . Ill a humble room ln Paris , Dark and cheerless , cold and bare , Sat a young boy by tbe window , Singing low a plaintive air . Singing—not tbat he was happy : His poor heart was racked with care But hls soul was full of music . And It welled forth even there . On a low and wretched pallet His sick , widowed mother lay , Aud no food had either eaten , Not a morsel , all that day . Something ln the street arrests lilm In large letters , red and white ; Tis a placard tbat announces Malibran will sing to-night . Suddenly a new thought strikes hliu , . Lighting up his pallid face ; One glance at his sleeping mother . And he hurries from the place . Did you say one wished lo see me ? I am weary and would rest She who spoke was tall and stately , And In richest garments dressed . Madam , this is no mere caller , But a gentle , pretty child , With such sunny auburn ringlets , And with eyes so blue aud mild . I wlll see him ; so be entered , With a mu...

THE LAW OF TRESPASS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

THE LAW OF TRESPASS What constitutes trespass is a question that arises continually , especially among farmers and owners of smaller tracts of real estate , and the ideas concerning it are about as vague as they well can be . An interesting article on the laws governing this question appears in the last quarterly report of the State Board of Agriculture , which deserves to be read by every farmer in the land , as they are oftener called on to face the troubles arising out of such cases than any other class of men in the community . Trespass is defined as any transgression or offence against the-law of nature , of society or of the country in which we live , whether it relate to a man s person or his property . This is its widest meaning . Ordinarily , however , it has reference only to an entrance on the property of another without authority , and in doing damage while there , whether much or little . The laws give the owner exclusive control over his property . Any infringement of ...

SCIENTIFIC FARMING [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

SCIENTIFIC FARMING On Saturday , Mr . W . W . B . Beach , M . P ., presided over . a well-attended meeting of farmers and others , held in the Bbard School , Tadley , Hampshire , for the purpose of considering the scheme of the Science and Art Department for teaching the science of farming . Mr . Beach said the Legislature had wisely provided for the elementary education of the laboring classes , but the education of farmers had not received the attention it deserved . In the present distressed condition of the agricultural interest , it is worth considering whether by more scientific and economic methods of cultivation farming could not be made to pay . Mr . Buckmaster then explained in detail the plan of the Science and Art Department for qualifying teachers of agriculture starting classes , examining pupils , and awarding payments . He went on to say that there was no opinion more deeply ingrained in the mind of the English farmer than the belief that there was some antagonism be...

EUROPEAN POSTAL STATISTICS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

EUROPEAN POSTAL STATISTICS The Vienna New Free Press gives some statistics of the number of postal establishments in Europe at the end of 1877 . Altogether there were , it appears , on the 31 st of December , 1877 , 68 , 466 post-offices , with 223 , 517 persons employed ; there being , therefore , on an average , one postal establishment for every 6 , 134 inhabitants throughout Europe . These post-offices are most thickly planted in Switzerland , and after Switzerland , Great Britain and Ireland . A striking contrast of these two countries is afforded by Russia and Turkey , there being in the former only one post-office to every 5 , 708 , and in the latter one to every 2 , 105 square miles . With regard also to the proportion of the number of post-offices to inhabitants , Switzerland is the country best off , there being one such establishment to every 983 inhabitants , while In Norway and Sweden there is only one post-office to every 2 , 224 in habitants . Altogether , again , 5 ,...

THE CHINESE CUISINE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

THE CHINESE CUISINE The shark s fin is a delicacy which is rarely omitted from the menu at a Chinese feast . It is one of the great classic dishes forming the pieces de resistance of an official banquet , and is eaten either in the form of a joint , garnished with crabs , or served up in small pieces in cups placed before each guest . The consumption of rats , though it seems to be somewhat on the decline , is the cause of a very import ant traffic in the principal towns of certain districts , and especially in a street in Canton called Hing-Loung-Kai . Here these animals may be seen in enormous multitudes hanging up in the shop windows among chickens and ducks and geese . They are for the most part dried and salted , and when in that state are esteemed a sovereign recipe for those whose hair is getting thin . Besides the dishes peculiar to the Celestials alone , there are a variety of differences in their mode of cooking and eating foods unknown to our cuisine . Hams , for instance...

GERMAN BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

GERMAN BUTTER A Hamburg broker has just published a tabular statement of the quotations for butter during the last 144 years ( 1736 to 1879 ) . The export trade in that product has heretofore been considered as one of the principal mainstays of the agriculturist in Holland , Mecklenburg , Holstein , etc . ; but the advent of the American article , and of the chemical compound oleomargarine , has naturally reduced profits and shaken confidence in the future of the home article . An upward movement in the German butter market seems to have begun about 1788 . The price of fine Holstein in 1738 was only 28 marks per centner . In the latter year , however , it advanced to 63 marks ( average)—the quotations ruling from 55 to 78 marks . The French Revolution also brought important changes in the market , for the insecurity of maritime commerce had dealt a heavy blow , to the export trade . The quotation sank to 43 marks , but rose in 1795 to 75 marks . The succeeding years witnessed and th...

EXTRAORDINARY SHOOTING [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

EXTRAORDINARY SHOOTING The celebrated Dr . Carver , who left California about a year ago , and has since perforated the temple of fame with bullets from his little rifle , has now a most formidable rival in the person of Dr . John Ruth , who yesterday gave an exhibition of his wonderful skill with the rifle at Shell Mound Park , Berkeley , in the presence of about one hundred spectators , largely composed of local crack shots , with the rifle and shotgun . There was also a fair sprinkling of ladies in the assemblage . The doctor was accompanied by his wife , a prepossessing lady of medium stature , who also entertained the company by a brief display of her skill in the manipulation of the rifle and pistol . This was Mrs . Ruth s first exhibition in public , and she manifested considerable perturbation at first , or , as the doctor expressed it , she was a little skittish upon her first appearance , but after the first two or three shots the nervousness disappeared , and the glass ba...
