ELECTRICITY IN HORTICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

ELECTRICITY IN HORTICULTURE Just now the moneyed horticultural world is all excitement over the experiments of Dr . C . W . Siemens in growing plants with the illumination of electric light . Dr . Siemens is a wealthy English scientist . He is the fortunate possessor of extensive gardens , and he has not hesitated in the expenditure of money in a system of experiments hitherto prosecuted on a very limited scale . The learned Dr . proceeded in his experiments with the idea that electricity might furnish all the requisites of sunlight in the developement of plant growth . In 1861 Herve -Maynon made the first experiment with electric light in this direction . He found that this light applied to plants in badly lighted places resulted in a growth equal to that when plants had the benefit of sunlight . Wolkoff , in 18 ( 16 , discovered that cress grown in the ( lark and exposed to a few hours of light produced by aBunsen burner turned green , the same as if grown in the sunl ght . Dr . S...

THE GREAT WEST AND THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

THE GREAT WEST AND THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA . The political attitude of the United States towards this great undertaking has been somewhat modified since the President s message on the subject , and the resolutions passed on by the Senate doubtless represent the general views of the public closely enough . No one supposes for a moment that the national attitude will be one of antagonism to such a grand commercial project , unless the people of the United States are ready and willing to build it themselves without the aid of foreign capital , and , as Mr . de Lesseps , now in Chicago , recently said , it is easy for the Government or citizens of the United States , if they please , to acquire a majority of the stock , in which case it would be practically an American enterprise . There is no doubt , however , that should the canal ever be built , its benefits would largely accrue to the people of the United States , and the government of this country will sufficiently guard its interest...

WHAT COMMISSIONER LE DUC WANTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

WHAT COMMISSIONER LE DUC WANTS The FARMERS REVIEW recently con . tained a lengthy article setting forth Commissioner Le Due s idea of what the Department of Agriculture should be , its needs , etc ., as given to its Washington correspondent . The Commissioner s report is a good one in many particulars , though in others it is somewhat wild . For instance , he handicaps his requests by asking for a new building of 1 , 000 feet frontage , with wings 500 feet in depth , the whole to be 80 feet wide . The interior court which this will make , to be covered with a glass roof of sufficient height to permit the growth of trees and space enough to be provided for the display of working models of all implements employed in agricultural pursuits besides accommodating the various divisions and a much enlarged force of assistants . He does not tell what this magnificent structure ( a permanent exposition building ) will cost , and perhaps it is unnecessary , for the commissioner evidently had i...

PORK PACKING IN CHICAGO . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

PORK PACKING IN CHICAGO . B . F . Howard , editor of the daily CommercialBulletin has compiled a statement showing the number of hogs packed in Chicago , during each winter packing season from 1851-52 , to 1879-80 inclusive ; the lowest number was in the first-named years , when only 22 , 038 head were packed , and the highest in 1878-9 , when they reached the enormous sum of 3 , 943 , 115 head , with an aggregate weight of 662 ,- 643 , 123 pounds net . The packing for the season ending March 1 , 1880 , included 3 , 515 , 219 hogs . The falling off from the previous year is largely attributable to the labor troubles that existed during several weeks of the most active portion of the season , causing a number of large establishments to close up . This naturally diverted a great many hogs to other markets . The average weight per hog is given at 222 77-100 lbs ., against 225 15-100 lbs . last season . The yield of lard is returned at 40 59-100 lbs . per hog , against 44 44-100 last se...

NO DANGER FROM THE CHINCH BUG . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

NO DANGER FROM THE CHINCH BUG . Just as this number of the REVIEW was ready for press , wo received the following interesting communication from Prof . Thomas , the Illinois State Entomologist . We gladly make room for it . EDS . FARMERS REVIEW : —As there is considerable uneasiness felt among the farmers of Illinois in reference to the Hessian fly , allow me to say that I think there is no cause for alarm . The fly did appear in the wheat in the Southern part of the State last Fall , and in some places in great numbors ; and there was good reason then to feel alarmed in reference to the wheat crop . But fortunately , the same thing that happened three years ago , occurred about the commencement of last Winter . Warm weather continued so long that the eggs deposited not only hatched as usual , and the insects passed through larva , or maggot state , into the pupa or flax-seed state , but the perfect insects appeared . Now it happens that this species appears to be able to pass the W...

INSURANCE ITEMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS . In a former number we gave to our readers some of the salient features of a company s financial statements , by which its solvency and reliability could be easily tested . The necessity of care in selecting a company to insure in , is too much forgotten . People are persuaded often against their will to insure and tnen when they do BO , they are not particular as to what company they may be insured in . This is all wrong . It ought not to need any persuasion to induce any sensible man to be insured . The necessity for insurance is so obvious that it must be readily understood by any man of ordinary intelligence , but no man ought to let himself be insured without knowing tbat tlie company lie was about to insure in was a thoroughly sound one .

LITERARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

LITERARY . PANSIES . Fairest of the humble flowers . Waved to bloom by early showers , What a wealth of meaning lies Hidden in your pensive eyes ! Walt your petals slow unfolding , Patient of the dark earths moulding , Till you open to the morn With a grace of Eden born . With no weary , painful weaving , Nor with restless unbelieving . In such vesture you are clad . As no monarch ever had . While in storm or sunshine growing . With such matchless beauty glowing , To ray listening soul you speak Of the perfect world I seek . Crowned with gold and purple splendor , Yet so lowly , meek and tender ; Types you are of patient souls , That have won their peaceful goals . GOBLIN ROCK .

BOOK NOTICES . QUARTERLY R EPORT OP THE KANSAS STATE BOARD OP AGRICULTURE FOR TnE YEAR ENDING DEC . 31 , 1879 . —Owing to the continued ill health of Hon .

THE HOME [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

THE HOME TAKING TOLL . In the door of the mill stood Richard Lee ; White as an image of snow was he , From his heavy boots to his beautiful lips , From the crown of his hat to his finger tips . Now , slowly Jogging along the street , Drove Farmer Brown with his grlstof wheat , And with him Bessie , as fresh as the Spring . And ripe as the fruit the Fall months bring . While the farmer drove about the town , Young Lee ground the wheat aud bolted it down ; With many a glance at the maiden fair Who sat by the door in the oaken chair . At last he called her In shouting tones , And she stood by the whirling rumbling stones , And watched the grain as it ebbed so still Till the farmer came ; but the noise of the mill Drowned the soun 1 of his feet , and over the hopper Two heads were Dent ; and when Richard Lee Saw him standing there , he stammered , I see—Thatls —then lie paused and shuffled hlsfeet ; I think there are weevils in your wheat ! Hut the farmer smiled and said , Well , Bess ,...

RUSSIAN EGGS AND KISSES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

RUSSIAN EGGS AND KISSES In the city of St . Petersburg more than ten millions of fancy eggs are used during the Easter holidays . The markets and stalls are filled with them , and the variety of patterns , figures and inscriptions on them are truly astonishing . The favorite motto is Ohristohs Vosforess —Christ is Risen . Some of the most expensive and beautiful are the crystal eggs . A friend who visited the Imperial Glass Cutting Manufactory , a little while before Easter , saw two large halls filled with workmen who were all employed in cutting flowers , figures and mottoes on those lovely glass or crystal eggs . Many of these were made expressly for the Emperor and Empress to give away as presents to their courtiers . In the wax-fruit maker s and confectioner s stalls you will see boxes , elegant in design and finish , filled with eggs of all sizes , from the great ostrich egg down to the nightingale s ; and all looking truly natural , though made of wax or sugar . Some eggs are...

TAB'S DOLL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

TABS DOLL . On the curb stone on Brush street , the other day , sat a girl of nine or ten full in the sun , but was so busy with a woe-be-gone rag baby that she seemed not to . heed the heat and glare . One arm had been torn from poor baby , its head fell over to one side , and the sawdust ran from the dilapidated feet every time she was lifted about . As the child sat there trying to make baby whole again with an old darning needle and a bit of twine , a boy of fourteen halted on the walk and sneeringly said : That dolls bin sun-struck , and all the doctors in town cant save her life . The girl made no reply , and after a moment the lad advanced , and snatched the doll and flung it high above his head , laughing loudly at her efforts to prevent him . Is your mother dead ? asked the girl , as her eyes filled with tears and her chin quivered . Not as I know of . But mine is , and she made that dolly for me when her hand trembled so much and her eyes had so many tears that I had to cu...

MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

MISCELLANEOUS . WASHINGTON NOTES . In a political way , th , e shadow of a great anxiety is being cast over Washington . The question as to the manner of deciding the next presidential vote is felt to be a grave matter . There is a wellgrounded apprehension that a conflict of opinion may arise which will threaten the stability of the government , if it does not produce an actual conflict of arms in the capital itself , at the hour of declaring the result of the coming presidential election . In such an emergency it is certainly the duty of good men , irrespective of party , , of the press of the United States , to insist upon some action by Congress , in advance of the emergency , which will prevent any strife and allay at once the grow ing fear of trouble . After many years of depression , the country is again prosperous , and the hopes that exist of a long season of success in all business enterprises , seem to be well founded . It will be a terrible thinjj if we are to . suffer a...
