FOR YOUNG READERS MARCH , AND THE BOYS . March , you re a jolly old fellow , I know : They may call you a Mustering old chap—but you blow For us boys and our kites , and we dont care a fig For tbe hats and the dust that go daiclng a Jig . Put ! out , you old fellow , blow hard or blow htgh , At our kites yoa may bluster , and blow them skyhigh !

You jolly old fellow . If vou were a boy , Youdknow why the . March-month gives us such joy . It Is fun to stand high on the top of a hill .

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880

MISCELLANEOUS PROTECTION IN AMERICA AND LAND TENURE IN ENGLAND . An interesting work by Mr . Alex . J . Wilson on Reciprocity , Bi-metalism and Land Tenure , contains some points equally worthy of the attention of American protectionists and English landlords . His reference to reciprocity of course applies to the sort of despairing abandonment of free-trade in practice , the principles of which are to-day universally accepted , in theory , in England . Reciprocity , he regards , as simply a sort of retaliation which would deny the right of free trade to strictly protectionist nations , and in connection with this subject he refers as follows to American protection . Speaking of our cotton and woolen manufactures he says : All these American industries are highly protected ; and , as a result , their prosperity , when it does fully come , is of a very precarious kind , as it surely must be so long as the cost of every manufactured article is higher than it is here by from 50 to 150 ...

THE NIAGARA INTERNATIONAL PARK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880

THE NIAGARA INTERNATIONAL PARK The movement which originated several years ago with the most distinguished of living American artists , Mr . Frederick E . Church , for establishing a grand International Park at Niagara Falls , and which was so promptly and cordially taken up after conference with him by the Earl of Dutferinduring his brilliant viceroyalty in Canada , is now assuming pro . portions which promise a speedy and successful result . Mr . Frederick Law Olmsted is actively engaged in organizing the work , and a monster petition asking Gov . Gornell to lend his official aid to it is accurately described in a Troy journal as bearing perhaps the most remarkable list of signatures ever appended to such a document . Among the signatures are those of the Vice-President , the Chief Justice oi the United States , and his associates , the Secretary ot War , the Admiral of the Navy , most of the prominent Senators and Representatives in Congress , the Governors of several States ; Ca...

PHOTOGRAPHING UNDER WATER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880

PHOTOGRAPHING UNDER WATER The recent Tay Bridge disaster naturally turned the attention of photographers to ways and means of taking photographs of the submerged carriages and girders . If the water is clear enough for the eye of the diver to discern the wreckage lying on the bottom , it is also clear enough to allow of pictures forming within the camera . The idea of photographing under water is not a new one , and has been frequently discussed ; but difficulties have arisen from the fact that photographers being unaccustomed to diving , can not accompany their instruments , and that the slightest agitation of the apparatus will blur and spoil the portrait . It is therefore necessary to construct * t ^ ady apparatus , which a skillful diver may be able to manipulate . Two Scotch photographers have devised apparatus answering the purpose , and one of them has taken several photographs in the Firth of Clyde , near Gourock . One view represents a sandy bottom , with a number of huge b...

HISTORIC GLASS NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880

HISTORIC GLASS NOTES In the year 676 A . D ., • messengers were sent , according to Bede , from Wearmouth . England , to Gaul ( France ) to fetch makers of glass ( artificers ?) , who at this time unknown in England , that they might glaze the windows ol the church , with the cloisters and dining-rooms . Bede adds that they taught the English nation their handicraft , which was well adapted for inclosing the lanterns to the church and for the vessels required for various uses . About this time , Archbishop Wilfrid , of York , filled with glass the windows of the cathedral , previously open to the weather , and such glass , says one , as permitted the sun to shine through , from which it may be inferred that glass was made that was impenetrable to the sun s rays . It was recorded , in connection with this cathedral , that great astonishment was excited , and the superstitious agency suspected , when the moon and stars were seen through a material which excluded the inclemency of the ...

SUGAR FROM RAGS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880

SUGAR FROM RAGS . To the eye of tlie chemist all things are clean ; and there is now in Germany a manufactory which turns out daily 1 , 000 pounds of pure grape sugar made from old linen . An understanding of the process helps somewhat to dispel the unpleasant feeling we experience on hearing of the fact . Clean old linen is pure vegetable fibrin , and when treated with sulphuric acid it is converted into dextrine . This is washed with lime-water , then treated with more acid , and it changes almost immediately and crystallizes into glucose , or grape-sugar , which is so highly valued in the making of rich preserves ana jellies . The process is said to be economical , and the sugar is found to be chemically the same as that of the grape ; nevertheless , a popular outcry , has , we believe , been raised against the rag-sugar factory in Germany , and it is danger of being put down . Regarded in a scientific spirit there is , perhaps , little difference between the transmutation of rag...
