Small Farms Unprofitable . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Small Farms Unprofitable . Some interesting facts as to small farms have been developed by Government inquiries in Germany and Austria . They show that mortgages on small properties have alarmingly increased until they amount to from 54 to 90 per cent . The reports claim that protection against American and Indian competition must be resorted to , and include all kinds of farm products . It is absurdly held that return must be had to the law of primogeniture and the subdivisions of land prevented . Better to conclude that their peasantry should emigrate to America , where they can have a farm large enough to use improved machinery , and where they can usually find a suitable market . In these continental reports a comparison is made with England and Scotland . It is claimed that on the small farms there , the yield is small , averaging only fifteen bushels per acre , while the large Scotch farms give an average of fortyeight bushels of wheat to the acre . The average value of the cr...
Market Review . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Market Review . The leading markets remain , quiet , but steady . The weather has been generally mild , and the roads , without being bad , were more or less sloppy throughout the West and of course not conducive to general hauling . Farmers seem rather inclined not to press the markets with grain and live stock , if we may except poultry . Of this there was a glut , and , except for the most superior , about any price offered , in reason , was accepted , especially since the state of the weather precluded long keeping . Provisions with rather were steady , and light supplies of live stock , values remained fair . In grains , for wheat foreign markets were slow and the trade here sympathized . Corn was dull under free arrivals and with alleged-large quantities on the road . Receipts so far grade well , which shows that since freezing weather set in , corn has dried out well . Cash corn was in fine shipping demand , except for the lower grades . Oats were dull , and trading was done ...

Farmers are all getting tame grass started . The hog cholera has , in the last year , swept over our whole country , till verv few farmers have...

A NEW-YEARS CAROL . The rime lies on the cedar-boughs , the hoar-frost in the eaves Rcflwts the moonbeams silvering upon the holiy . leaves ; And round our hearth we meet again , no single gap is there :, Prom grandsire , with his frosted brow , to babe with golden hair . And yet perchance there may be one with tear-drop in the eye ; There may be one whose utmost soul is struggling with a sigh ; There may be one whose heart rests on the green turf of a grave , Whose life is buried with a love that sleeps beneath the grave . Ah , in the purest veins of gold there must be some allot/—Not hunlan Is the man or maid who knows not buried joy ; For never yet was he so blessed , and ne er shall blessed be .

YOUNG FOLKS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
YOUNG FOLKS . Wbittier and the Children . Sometime ago a number of children in a public school in G-irard , Pa ., wrote a letter to the poet Whittier , telling him that they had learned to recite several of his poems , and closing thus : If it would not be too much trouble write a verse for us—something that we could learn and always remember as having been written by you especially for us . In response he sent the following : Faint not and falter not , nor plead Your weakness . Truth itself is strong . The lion s strength , the eagle s speed . Are not alone vouchsafed to wrong . Your nature , which through fire and blood . To place or gain can And its way , Has power to seek the highest good And duty s holiest call obey . JOHN G . WHITTIER .

. Boys Boots . . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
. Boys Boots . . BY T . C . DUNCAN , M . D ., CHICAGO . Papa , I needa new pair of boots , is the burden of many a boy just now . Somehow the cast-off boots of Spring had grown wonderfully small and hard for feet that have boen running loose all Summer—too hard even for the stonebruised and stubble pricked feetl Were I to ask your boy readers what kind of boots they want , the chorus would doubtless be , red tops . Fathers you will do well to heed it . But be sure that they are red tops . Eed top , whether clover or Kentucky grass , is vigorous and roomy . See the top , it speeds to catch the light . The genuine red top towers above all grassess . So get boots with spread of foot—big enough to allow a vigorous development aU around . But they need not be clumsy even if they are large enough to hold two pair of socks as well as a good foot . • By the way ,, two socks are much warmer than one pair and rubbers . While the foot is ample the leg should be ample also , and high . A bit of...

Our early historians make mention of but one small hatchet , and to-day we lead the world in the manufacture of axes . Good gracious ! exclaimed the hen , when she found a porcelain egg in her nest . I shall be a bricklayer next . . —Why is the heart of a tree like a dog s tail ? Because it is furthest from the bark . — Dont you think you have a good mamma , to spread such nice , large slices of jam for you ? said an old lady to a little boy who was...

LITERATURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
LITERATURE . Book Notices . —We are not of those who believe that because an author is heir apparent to $ 2 ,- 000 , 000 his book should be treated differently than if he were only worth two sous . We are even skeptical about Dr . Johnson s doctrine that when a nobleman writes a book it deserves consideration . But Valentino , the book of William Woldorf Astor , was submitted to the publishers with its author incognito . It was thus accepted for publication . It can doubtless stand on its merits before the reading public . The story is Italian , the period the beginning of the 16 th century . Such characters as the Borgias , Machiavelli and Pope Alexander VI are introduced and with evident fidelity to history . The work will be classed with the historic novel . It has action and interest wholly its own . But there has been a great study of the customs , thoughts , sentiments and domestic habits of the Italians of that age as well as of the public events that usually go to make up hi...
