Some Letters This is from a well-known merchant from Springfield , 111 ., Mr . T . H . Watson , who purchased 20 acres in Fair Oaks . His letter speaks for itself : Farm , Field and , Fireside , Chicago , 111 . Gentlemen : Having had . the pleasure of being one of the excursionists to Fair Oaks , Jan . 9 , and having just returned home from a trip through Southern California , I have many inquiries in reference to the prospects at Fair Oaks and other sections of California , as a place for an investment , and if you can send me some copies of The Heart of- California and other literature in reference to that section , I think I can interest some of my friends in visiting that place , and if they do I am confident they will purchase a tract of land . Having visited many points in California and making what inquiries I could I do not feel that I have made a mistake in purchasing a tract of Fair Oaks land , and I believe in a few years that will be one of the most desirable locations i...

TIMBER . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 27 February 1896
TIMBER . T HIS is the title of Bulletin 10 of the Division of Forestry of the U . S . Department of Agriculture , which is further described by Prof . B . E . Fernow , Chief of that Division in his letter of transmittal as a brief but comprehensive discussion of the characteristics and properties of ¦ wood in general and of our American timbers in particular , which it is hoped may be useful to engineers , architects , carpenters , lumbermen , and all wood workers . The paper was prepared by Mr . Filibert Roth , in charge of investigations in timber physics . Professor Fernow also states that the information it contains is largely based on actual experiment and scientific observation , and will , it is hoped , not only explain the experiences of the practical worker with his material , but will remove erroneous notions and thus aid in improving the practice and lead to a more rational use of our forest resources .

Woman and Her Domain ; r : ¦ ACROSS THE DELAWARE .. The winter night iscold and drear , Along the river s sullen flow ; ;; The cruel frost is camping here—The air has flying blades of snow . Look ! pushing from the icy strand , With ensigns freezing in the air , There sails a small but mighty band Across the dang rous Delaware . O wherefore , soldiers , would you fight The bayonets of a wintry storm ? In truth , It were a better night , For blazing fire , and blankets warm . We seek to trap a foreign foe , Who fill themselves with stolen fare ; . We carry Freedom as . we go Across the storm-swept Delaware ! The night is full of lusty cheer , Within the Hessian s merry camp ; And faint and fainter on the ear , Doth fall the heedless sentry s tramp O hirelings ^ this new nation s rage Is something tis not well to dare ; You are not fitted to engage These men from o er the Delaware ! A rush—a ., shout-ra , clarion call , Salute the early morning s gray ; Now , roused invaders , yield o...

Our Young Folks Corner THE FARMER FEEDS THEM ALL . The king may rule o er , land and sea . Tbe lord may live right royally , The soldier ride in pomp and pride , The sailor roam oer the ocean wide ; But this or that , whate er befall , The farmer he must feed them all .

How we came to know each other is no matter . We meet at times at my own apartments in a quaint old inn , beside a cavernous fireplace , into which countless now sightless eyes have for centuries peered , and in a pleasant way we re-live our pilgrimings , or recount those romances of others which have touched our hearts and tarried there . In this old room , with its brown rafters , decrepit floor and little , high dormer windows , like the portholes of an old frigate , we seerri to become almost one in this kindly companionship . We are so much one that when my guests have departed I sit here by the old fireplace , where friendly voices and presences linger , and set down as best I may ...
ALLEGED FUN [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 27 February 1896
ALLEGED FUN RUSSELL SAGE AN OBJECT OF CHARITY . Russell Sage , whose apparel , at its best , is not calculated to give anyone an adequate idea of its owner s millions , was mistaken on Saturday for an object of charity , and had a silver quarter thrust generously at him . Uncle Russell is suffering from a boil near his shoulder , which has caused him to carry his arm in a sling . While standing on Broadway , near Fulton , waiting for an opportunity to cross the street in safety , he noticed a wealthy broker who bad just passed , with whom he wished to discuss a matter of business . The multimillionaire hurried after his friend , touching him on the arm , and said : I beg your pardon , sir— - Go away , my man , replied the broker . ¦ I really havent any time . Here is a quarter , and he thrust a coin into the horny palm of the outstretched hand , and then the broker looked into the face of bis friend . Great Scott ! he exclaimed . Why , Mr . Sage , I didnt know it was you . I really ...

The English situation seems to be-growing stronger every . day , and the visible supply decreased nearly double , what was expected . Crop-damage reports came in very freely , and the cash demand was brisk here , while . New York wired that 320 , 000 bu . of spring wheat had been taken there to be shipped between now and March 15 . The country trade seems to be waking up a little , and many commission houses reported a material enlargement of the country buying .
