Sfc Mb Hb ki K ) H ) hb m m a s IS B s AMBER CANE SEED DISTRIBUTION . To any present subscriber sending us the name of a new subscriber and one dollar , we will have forwarded , post paid , one-half pound of genuine amber cane seed , grown last year , from Minnesota stock . For two new subscriptions and two dollars we will send one pound of this seed . WE now copyright each number of the FARMERS REVIEW . We do this to protect ourselves from the wholesale appropriation of our original matter by a few unscrupulous publishers . We shall gladly permit the copying of all articles , except serials , and of extracts from those , if proper credit is given . But this credit we must insist upon . 1 BRAN seems to be a popular remedy j ust now in England for slugs , which are said to be fond of it , being attracted from all directions to it . It is placed among the plants in the evening , on pieces of slate , and these traps subsequently empted with the slugs into a vessel of salt and water . A...
WESTERN DAIRYMEN AND ENGLISH SALT . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
WESTERN DAIRYMEN AND ENGLISH SALT . During 1879 , says the New York Commercial Bulletin , no less than 15 , 579 tons of English salt , destined for Chicago , was compelled . to go by way of Canada , which , with a toll of only one cent per bushel , would have gone through the canals , thereby benefiting the business of the State and the shipping of this port . Notwithstanding , the New York legislature persists in charging five cents per bushel toll on foreign salt , although only one cent per bushel is charged on the Syracuse article . Not only is this a most short-sighted policy as regards the State of New York itself , which undoubtedly loses a large sum yearly by thus practically barring the passage of foreign salt through the canal , but it is one more burden laid upon the Western consumers of foreign salt , notably the dairymen and the packers , who can not use the home article , if they should get it for nothing . But this foolish and unjust discrimination of the State of New...
CINCINNATI AND THE SOUTH [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
CINCINNATI AND THE SOUTH The city of Cincinnati has just accomplished one of the most important works of the century , for herself and for a large extent of territory at the South . We refer to the completion of the Cincinnati and Southern railway , an event that was celebrated on Thursday night last , by one of the grandest banquets ever held in the country . The new road runs through the States of Kentucky and Tennessee , a distance of about 300 miles , the Southern terminus being Chattanooga . By this road Cincinnati opens up direct communication with the entire system of southern railways , and becomes at once a distributing point for the North , for the fruits and staple products of the South , and also the great supply depot for several Southern States that purchase largely of the agricultural productions and manufactured goods of the North . To build this road , the citizens at first assumed a bonded debt of $ 10 , 000 , 000 , and expended the money . But this was sufficient ...
AMERICAN POTTERIES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
AMERICAN POTTERIES Only a few * fyears since the people of the United States were wholly dependent on European potteries for every article of table ware . This condition of affairs is being rapidly changed . The increase of our home productions may be inferred front the fact that in 1870 our imports were invoiced at $ 7 , 387 , 771 , from that period up to 1873 they were nearly or quite doubled ; since that period they have steadily decreased , and in 1879 , they were $ 600 , 000 less than in 1870 . In the meantime our home industry , that was scarcely known in 1870 , has grown until there are now 800 potteries in the United States , employing 7 , 000 operatives whose productions in 1879 aggregated $ 7 , 000 , 000 . The improvement in the quality has been equally great as in the volume of goods turned out . Beginning with the common yellow and lowest grades of white ware , many of the largest establishments are now producing goods that will compare well with the finest English and o...
THE ILLINOIS SHIP CANAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
THE ILLINOIS SHIP CANAL On the 17 th of this month there assembled at Ottawa , 111 ., about six hundred delegates , principally from Chicago and the towns and cities along the line of the Illinois and Michigan Canal and the Illinois river . The object of the meeting was to inaugurate an active movement for the construe tion of a ship canal from Lake Michigan at Chicago to some point on the Mississippi river . The Hon . John Wentworth was chosen chairman . The delegates were addressed by Mr . Wentworth , Gov . Cullom , Col . Carr , of Galesburg , Mayor Harrison , of Chicago , Hon . Washington Bushnell , Judge Munn and others . Mr . Wentworth favored the idea of the work being undertaken by the State of Illinois . He did not believe that the general government could be induced to take hold of the matter . Gov . Cullom put in a vigorous plea for an effort in behalf of government aid . In regard to the advantages to result from this great enterprise , he said ; A ship canal trom Lake Mi...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS WHAT I NSURANCE COMMISSIONERS SAV OF THE VALUED POLICY CRAZE . —While State Legislatures are rapidly being infected by the Valued Policy Craze we think it may not be amiss to reproduce from the New York Review a few extracts upon this subject from some of the Insurance Commisioners of various States , together with the Review s comments thereon . The Insurance Commissioners are men who have every opportunity of course , to see the probable effects of such laws . We have already published the experience of the Commissioner of Wisconsin , as to tbe repqlts pj such a law passed in his own State , giving an estimate of $ 330 , 000 loss caused by incendiary fires . We quote from the Review ( New York ) : Superintendent Bow , of the Michigan Insurance Department , whose experience and ability have given him a national reputation , in his report for 1878 , congratulated the State that certain insurance bills ( including a valued policy bill ) had not become laws , character...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
LITERARY OUR SHIPS AT SEA . How many of us have ships at sea . Freighted with wishes and hopes and fears . Tossing about on the waves , while we Linger and wait on the shore for years , Gazing afar through the distance dim And sighing , will ever our ships come in ? We sent them away with laughter and song , The decks were white and the sails were new , The fragrant breezes bore them along , The sea was calm and the skies were blue , And we thought as we watched tbem sail away Of tbe Joy they would bring us some future day . Long have we watched beside the shore To catch the gleam of a coming sail , But we only hear the breakers roar Or the sweeping night wind s dismal wall , Till our cheeks grow pale , and our eyes grow dim And we sadly sigh , will they ever come in ? Oh . poor sad heart with Its burden of cares . Its aims defeated , its worthless life That has garnered only the thorns and the tares . That Is seared and torn In the pitiful strife . Afar on the heavenly golden shore...
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE 6 P A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE 6 P A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IN TWENTY ME 8 RE 8 . ( Continued from page 187 . } MBSH XVII . —THE PORTENT OF A STORM . The time sped on , and Christmas was getting near at hand . There was a storm in the bay , and several wrecks on the coast , and the next morning all the men whose boats were at home , and not away at Yarmouth or the North , leaned their Jerseyshirts against the rails in front of the Ola Pilchard again , and amused themselves with spitting down on the boulders , as if trying to send liquid shots through the meshes of the brown herring nets spread out to dry . Those who were not liquid enough to indulge in this pastime gazed out to sea , as if looking for luck ; and these seemed to thrust their hands farther down in their pockets than the others . Old Kelynack was out with them , and while the fishermen leaned their chests against the rail , he leaned his back and talked . Your Cornish fisherman likes to be talked to as long as the converse be not ...
THE WEE , WEE BAIRNIE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
THE WEE , WEE BAIRNIE Step gently , step gently . I stepped hastily back . I feared I had been treading on some of the old man s flowers . He leant on his spade , and made no motion for some minutes . At length he raised his head , and in a husky voice began : Ay , sir , I mind the time as weel as twere yesterday , and it s forty years since , when bor wee bairnie died . It was his fourth birthday , and he stopped up tae wait till I cam hame wi a bit . present for him . I sat doon bo the fire tae wait for my supper ( mv wife was ben the honsc bakin ) . when I heard the patterin o his little feet , an I looked up an held oot my airms for him . He didna come runnin tae them sae quick as usual , an when I had him on my knees , says I , An fall ye be , ye wee bit nickum ? I m fnyther p wee , wee bairnie . An wi that he nestled closer to me . He didna seem cheery , sae I cad the dog . gie tae him , an the doggie cam lazy-like frae his corner stretchin his legs . The bairnie put doon his ...
WEIGHTS AND MEASURES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
WEIGHTS AND MEASURES What ls the weight of Love ? I said To a little maiden , whose curly head Was thoughtfully bent o er the dismal slate Whereon was the sum she must calculate . Love Is as light as a thistle ball . Washer laughing answer ; no weight at all Has the will-o -the-wisp , whogoi &gt; s and comes , Aud never is bothered with horrid sums ! How would you measure Love ? That depends ! Said the merry maiden with ^ host of friends . As she smoothed her dress till Its silken fold In the sunlight shimmered like cloth of gold , In my opinion . Ocurious bard ! Love Is like calico , bought by , the yard . Or drawn from a fountain with depth so small A hatr-plnt measure would hold It all ! What Is the weight ofLove ? I asked Anaged matron , so overtasked With household duties her careworn face Had lost the marks of Its youthful grace . Lightly I held my love , I know , In that beautiful season of long ago : But now , she said , with a deepening frown , Love Is a burden that...
THE HOME . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
THE HOME . HOME . Homes not merely four square walls , Though with pictures hung and glided . Home ls where affection calls , Fllld with shrines the heart hath bullded . Home ! Go watch the faithful dove Sailing neath the heaven above us ; Home is where there s one to love ; Home Is where there s one to love us , Home s not merely roof and room ; It needs something to endear It ; Home Is where the heart ca i bloom , Where there s some kindlip to cheer It . What ls home with none to meet , None to welcome , none to greet us ? Home is sweet—and only sweet—When there s one we love to meet us . —Boston Transcript HOME ADORNMENTS . There is no part of a woman s home which indicates more thoroughly her housekeeping qualities and innate refinement , than her dining-room . It is not necessary that the table ware be costly or the linen superfine . Let every thing be bright and clean and well ordered , and the effect is quite as good . Not but that exquisitely fine linen , silver service and ...
