The 1892 World ' s Fair . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

The 1892 World s Fair . Shall Chicago have the honor of celebrating the fourth centennial anniversary of the discovery of America by a great World s Fair ? Yes , if the Commercial Club enter upon it in earnest , and at once take the preliminary steps , as there are indications they will . The gentlemen composing this club represent the business capacity and the industrial wealth of the city . They would be recognized the world , over as forming a guaranty that the project would be carried out in a business way , and without the red tape and fussiness that has too often militated against perfect success in such enterprises . If the great project is to be accomplished , the fact cannot be too early made known . There is no city in the country so easily and promptly reached , either by water or rail . There is no city whore better or more ample grounds , and the means of reaching the grounds , could be found , and there is no city of such hotel and lodging capacity , as that of the Gar...

Indians Against Indians . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

Indians Against Indians . Some Nebraska Congressmen , and notably Senator Manderson . are fully alive to the gravity of the Indian situation in New Mexico and Arizona . They have proposed certain practical measures that should receive immediate attention . It is still true that there is a small band of Apaches not exceeding 200 that roam about mar auding and murdering settlers , almost at will . They make their escape into old Mexico when pursued by the military . Indeed their chief place of rendezvous is in the Sierra Madre mountains . Gen . Crook supposed he had broken up the band , and that the few who eluded him would he induced to come in by kind treatment of the families captured . This policy has not proved effective , and the people of Arizona are loud in their complaints . The measures proposed are two-fold One is to organize frontiersmen into volunteer companies under regular army officers , the rank and file to be experienced eow-boys , miners and the like , to be enliste...

The Farmer and the Trotting Horse . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

The Farmer and the Trotting Horse . The trotting horse is not the animal for the farmer to breed . It requires too much time , patience , and training to develop the trotting colt . And though possessing speed for tho road , the colt may live to an old age without averaging a three minute gait until he is taught his duty . The trotting family of horses arc too light in structure for general farm purposes , and when bred to common mares they effect but little improvement , as they are not a long-established breed , being very different in that respect from the thoroughbred . But there is one advantage to the farmer possessed by the trotter . Mares bred from such produce are first-class farm horses when crossed with the heavy French , English , or Scotch draft stallions . The colts of such breeding possess fine bone with well-developed muscles and large size , while they grow rapidly and come into service early . Such horses are excellent in the fields or on the road , and are capable...

The Grange and Alliance . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

The Grange and Alliance . It is pleasant to know that the Grange is again doing good work . Not but that the work done heretofore has not been good , but for some time the order seemed to be under a cloud . The Farmers Alliance , also , is still progressing , especially in the far West . Why not the Grange and Alliance work hand in hand and together , in the interests of agriculture ? Why not ? Why should not farmers organize for their special interests as well as all other professions , guilds and trades ? While other interests work politically tho farmers should unite , in a non-partisan sense , to protect and elevate their profession . The real point lies in a nut shell . ShRrp-tongued wire pullers in city and country clan together to elect glib talkers to State Legislatures and Congress , certain men who have little real standing among the community at homo . It has filled our Legislation halls with lawyers without briefs at home , to make laws , many of which are inoperative or...

Is the Old Lady Sick ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

Is the Old Lady Sick ? Our excellent agricultural contemporary , the fat old lady on Dearborn street , is getting green all over with envy and jealousy over our splendid free seed distribution , and is laboring strenuously , in a round-about way . to cast discredit upon it , and not without reason , for many of its subscribers , tempted thereby , and with the superior inerits of the FARM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN under its now publishers , are heading this way . Wo have a lingering affection for our old-time neighbor and do not want to deprive it of its list . But if its subscribers will come in search of a live paper , we are not going to turn them away . It intimateB that no paper whose subscription price is from $ 1 to $ 1 . 00 a year can afford to give its subscribers from 75 cents to $ 1 worth of seeds , and says all such offers are unbusinesslike . The best answer we can give to this charge is by quoting from its own columns . In 1883 and 1884 it gave seed premiums to its readers ,...

• An Unworthy Assault . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

• An Unworthy Assault . The Staats-Zeitung has stepped outside the bounds of decency in trying to bespatter a dying man with mud . David A . Gage was at one time a much respected business man of Chicago . He was City Treasurer before Mr . Joseph Medill was elected Mayor , and during part of his term , and , under the financial stress of 1873 , became a defaulter . His bondsmen were good and finally settled . So there was no occasion to rehash the matter while Mr . Gage is on his dying bed . More than this , the attempt to besmirch ex-Mayor Medill is unworthy of any respectable paper . If there was ever an upright man in our chief magistrates chair , that man was Mr . Joseph Medill . We are ashamed for the newspaper fraternity that from any professional rivalry the editor of the Staats-Zeitung should degrade his columns by thus giving vent to petty jealousy and personal spite sgainst the editor of the Chicago Tribune . The Mephistophelian hand of Washington Hesing is too manifest . C...

Annexation of Burmah . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

Annexation of Burmah . It seems hardly possible that a political event so important as the annexation of a new kingdom to the British Empire could have taken place so quietly . Tho noise was connected with the preliminaries . King Thecbaw heard the thundering of British guns , the shrieking of shells and the whistling of bullets to satiety . , His diplomatic representative in Paris , who was interviewed soon after the annexation , could not believe that tho King had succumbed and that he had no government to represent . He declared annexation would be followed by rebellion . But too many interests in Biirmah favor the British policy and control to allow any chance of a successful rebellion . Perhaps , too , ignorant as they are , some of them may know enough of history to understand what it means for East Indians to attempt rebellion against Britisli authority . If they cannot road they can remember the Sepoy rebellion and its results—perhaps some of its sad consequences . But what ...

A Fish Company . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

A Fish Company . A correspondent in Maine writes that , in response to a statement in his local journal , he sent the alleged United States Fish Company a letter and stamps , and has heard , nothing further from them . He asks what we know about them . In reply we may say that every paper which would publish have been furnished with stereotyped matter of a florid type , from some alleged person in the interest of carp culture . If our correspondent wants to know about fish , let him address the State Pish Commission , or if there is not such , address the United States Fish Commission , Washington , D . C . • Illinois Tile JIakers .

Go Against Adulteration . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

Go Against Adulteration . The country has been pretty well shaken up of late over the butter and cheese adulterations , not only through dairy , agricultural and stock journals , but the daily press have also pretty generally taken up and denounced the frauds . ¦ Talk is all right , but it will do little good unless followed up by work beforo the legislatures of the country . Many of these do not meet every year and the forgers fraudulently palm off vile . compounds upon consumers , who have no means of redress for the reason that laws relating to adulterations , are so drawn as to be inoperative ; and so long as the voting population , without respect to party , are content to send shystering lawyers and mere pot-house politicians to » ur legislatures . National and State , their itching palms will continue to be greased with the neutral (?) products of the lobby , and this in spite of the honest legislators who are in a minority .

Languidly the autumn wind • Stirs the greenwood leaves ; From the fleldB the reapers sing , Binding up tho sheaves ; And a proverb haunts my mind , As a spell is cast—The mill will never grind With the water that has passed . Take the lesson to thyself , Loving heart and true ; Golden years are fleeting by , Yonth is passing , too . Learn to make the most of life , Lose no happy day ; Time will never bring thee back Chances swept away . Leave no tender word unsaid ; Love while life shall last—The mill will never grind With the water that has passed . Oh , the wasted hours of life That have drifted by 1 Oh , the good we might have done , Lost without a sigh ! Love that we might once have saved By a single word ; Thoughts conceived , but never penned , Perishing unheard . Take the proverb to thine heart , Take 1 oh , hold it fast ...

The Mistress of the White House to Girls . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886

The Mistress of the White House to Girls . The following is an extract from an article by Miss Elizabeth Cleveland : I wish some strong , bright angel stood before you just now , while you read , girls , to flash before you , as no words of mine can , the power you possess to help or to hinder the cause of temperance ; to make you feel your responsibility , because you are girls , in this matter ; to shudder at its weight , and to never cease trying to fulfill it . Doubtless you have heard a great deal about the value of your smiles ; but you do not know the value of your frowns and the importance of knowing just what to frown upon . What a man must do by a blow a woman can do by a frown . When the time comes that the young man who now shares his time in your society and the saloons , who jokes about temperance in your presence , and takes a glass socially , now and then , is made to feel that these things cannot be if you are to be his companion at party , ride or church ; that goo...

The most diminutive plant is tho Artie raspberry , which is so small that a six ounce vial will hold the whole , branches and all . Twenty-two years ago next Friday night , Abraham Lincoln , with hand and arm numbed to the shoulder from the New Year s handshaking , took up a pen made mighty by a million swords , and signed the proclamation of emancipation . That pen was recently stolen by a burglar in Chicago , but returned with an apology when the rogue read of its owner s chagrin .
