Dobbs : There Isnt a doubt But what wed all fancy a stirabout I A hasty pudding ! Hurrah ! That snlce ! Exclaimed the girls and boys ln a trice . Then Sally put on the biggest pot .

At which the pudding laughed loude...

HOW NEEDLEWORK AND KNITTING ARE TAUGHT IN 6 ERMANY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

HOW NEEDLEWORK AND KNITTING ARE TAUGHT IN 6 ERMANY . In the elementary schools six hours a w « ek are given to needle-work and knitting . Knitting only is taught in the two lower , but even that is done by rule . In the fourth , from March to the end of August , plain knitting backward and forward . At the beginning of September a stocking is to be begun . In the third , only stocking-knitting . Sometimes the children knit quietly by themselves , but they most frequently do it together , stitch by stitch , while the teacher very slowly counts or beats time . Painfully monotonous it must be for a child who has well mastered the work . At one , the needle is put in , at two , the cotton goes over , three , the stitch is made , and at four taken off the needle . In the second class , ages nine and ten , needle-work is begun . The children are provided with squares of canvas and red cotton , and the teacher has a large frame in a stand , on which coarse netting is stretched that represe...

WASHINGTON SOCIETY IN 1825 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

WASHINGTON SOCIETY IN 1825 The circle of what was termed good society at Washington had been and was then very limited in its extent and simple in its habits . Few senators or representatives brought their wives to cheer their congressional labors , and a parlor of ordinary size would contain all of those who were accustomed to attend social gatherings . A few diplomats , with the officers of the army and navy stationed at headquarters , were accompanied by their wives , and there were generally a few visitors oi social distinction . The most friendly and cordial intercourse prevailed , and those who met at dinner-parties and at evening entertainments were like members of one family , in general sympathy . The costume of the ladies was classic in its scantiness , especially at balls and parties . The fashionable ball-dress was of white India crape , and five breadths , each a quarter of a yard wide , were all that was ^ sked for to make a skirt , which only came down to the ankles ,...

THE CROSSING-SWEEPER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

THE CROSSING-SWEEPER In a great many large cities , as you doubtless have heard , at the junction of different streets , where people are compelled to crossfrom one side-walk to the other , little boys , yes , and sometimes old men , are allowed to station themselves , and with a broom , keep the crossing clear of mud for the benefit of the foot passengers . Their only reward consists of the few pennies that the grateful pedestrians may bestow on them for thus clearing the way and not being compelled to move on by order of a stern policeman . London is a great city for crossing-sweepers as it is for a great many other things , but it must be admitted that as rainy weather and muddy streets are the harvest of crossing-sweep-ers , so uo city in the world could possibly afford them better opportunities , for in London it almost always rains , and the street traffic is so great that the crossings are always in need of the broom . It is quite wonderful to notice the alacrity of a little ...

OUR CHEMICAL MANUFACTURERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

OUR CHEMICAL MANUFACTURERS The recent rapid increase in American chemical manufactures—in many cases from native crude materials , is a very encouraging feature of American trade . Six years ago we imported from France cream of tartar to the extent of 9 , 000 , 000 pounds yearly ; but so successfully has the manufacture of it in this country been carried on , that last year not a single pound was imported . Notwithstanding the crude materials have at present to be imported , the price of the manufactured article has been reduced from 32 cents per pound , the rate of the French article , to 23 and 24 cents per pound for the American production . France and England formerly sent us annually 500 , 000 pounds of tartaric acid , while the importation for the last fiscal year was 183 pounds . England formerly monopolized our market for citric acid to the extent of 250 , 000 pounds annually , at the rate of $ 1 . 30 per pound , while last year 27 , 018 pounds were imported and sold at the ...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

MISCELLANEOUS AGRICULTURAL ADVANCEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES . BY PBOF . C . V . RILEY . [ An Address read at the organ zatlon of the American Agricultural Association Dec . 10 , 1879 . 1 To the President and Members of the National Agricultural Association . —GENTLEMEN You have organized a society for the advancement of American agriculture , and he were no patriot who did not wish you success in the good work you have set out to accomplish , ot who failed to endorse the noble ambition which has inspired your organization . It is because I sincerely wish you success in your laudable object that I have concluded , in reply to Mr . Reall s repeated request , to suggest in as few words as possible , wherein , in my humble judgment , success is and is not attainable by an organization of this kind . All nations , in all times , have recognized the importance of agriculture ; and in proportion as they have intelligently fostered it have they been prosperous ; for the decay of nations run...

GENTS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

GENTS . One day , several years ago , when I was rather a young man , the editor of one of the great New York dailies , for which I was doing occasional articles , called mc into his sanctum . He held a manuscript of mine in his hand , and on his countenance was an expression which I hastily and inaccurately translated into declined with thanks . I notice the word gent here , he said , thoughtfully tapping the paper with his forefinger ; have you spelled it correctly ? Havent I spelled it g-e-n-tI I asked in astonishment . I believe so ; but wont you have the goodness to look it up in the dictionary ? I turned confidently to Webster s Unabridged , and presently became rather red in the face at not being able to find the word in that bewildering store-house . Perhaps there is no such word in the English language , slyly suggested the editor , in which case we had better strike it out of the article . This little lesson made so deep an impression on me , and instilled into my heart su...

CHAFF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

CHAFF . SAYS JOSH BILLINGS : If you kanttrusta man entirely , let him skip ; this trieing to get an average on honesty alwuss haz been a failure . ONE of the inexplicable phenomena of Nature is the effect the emptying of a pan of a _ hes haB in suddenly reversing the direction of the wind . WHY do girls elope ? is the very interesting query put by a cotemporary . Well , there are various reasons , the principal ones being that the girls are displeased with the way their mothers do housework , and some girls have an idea they can support husbands ; and a good many of them have to do it , too . THE person who retires with the sun must have a warm bed-fellow . TENNYSON , like a patient fisherman , spends hours over a single line . SHE was plump and beautiful , and he was wildly fond of her . She hated him , but , woman-like , she strove to catch him . He was a flea . SEVEN young ladies received the degree of A . B . a Northampton , recently .

THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

THE SHEAF THE proposed investigation of the causes of the present grain blockade in our principal cities by a Congressional committee , is said to be causing considerable anxiety among leading New York grain dealers .

SKIHMBK , of New York , lately introduced into the Legislature of that State a bill for the establishment of an Agricultural Experiment Station , for the purpose of promoting agriculture by scientific investigation and experiment The bill provides that the station shall be under the control of a board composed of a member from each of the different farmers clubs of the State , and one from the Western New York Horticultural Society , and the sum of f 8 , 000 is appropriated for its maintenance .
