POOR MR . BUMBLE! BY EBEN E . REXFORD . Mr . Bumble , —Timothy Bumble , bachelor , from Spadunk , —sat iu his room the very picture of despair . That morning he had arrived at the home of his brother , on his annual visit . He had felt a presentiment of evil for some days back ; something had impressed him with a vague sense of impending danger . He had not been able to satisfy himself as to the nature of the danger menacing him , but lie knew well enough that something was going to happen . He had told Hester so , before leaving home , and the old housekeeper had pleasantly suggested smallpox or a railroad collision as the most probable dangers . But now he knew what the danger he had foreboded consisted in . Worsen small-pox , groaned Mr . Bumble .

Yes , sir ee , with a nod at the bedpost , as if he felt sure that portion of the bedstead s anatomy could understand iind sympathiz...
A SONNET . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
A SONNET . W . S . K . The hungry winds are chasing long the sky , And pluck for aimless sport the dream wrapt leaf , And nil the day is filled with vainlcss grief , As writhing branches in the storm winds cry , For their robbed glory that goes quivering by . Misfortune comes , e er groping blind and deaf , Steals peace and joy be it soever brief , And to our wailing gives no answer why . We cry aloudf er love forever flown ; It like the wind swept leaf cannot return . But , hearken close , we hear the thousands moan , For peace and love that had too short sojourn . And think alas I too oft , our feeble urn Casts greater shade than if a thousand shone .

WHISTLER'S MARE BY HELENA DIXON . Balky , do you say ? Well , she has balked in her life-time , and let me tell you , shed be of no more account with me than any other horse , if it wasnt for that very thing . You used to know Beckey Ash , perhaps ? If you did , you knew her to be the brightest and prettiest and best girl in the place . I courted Beckey for two years , and everybody thought wed bo married for sure . Well , just so I thought , though we hadnt said so to each other in so many words . I was young , so was she , and I thought it best to get something of a start in the world first . That was all well enough , you think , and so it would have been if Siin Durwent hadnt come our way with his bleached-out face and soft hands . Everybody said at once , hed cut me out , for Beckey was , by all odds , the best looking girl in tho place , and it pleased her to be noticed . So when he asked her to go with him to the picnic that wed been looking forward to so long , and she said ...

C 03 IPOKT . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
COMFORT . We piled with oaro our nightly stack Of wood against the chimney back , — Tho oaken log , green , huge and thick . And on its top the stout back-stick ; The knotty fore-stick laid apart . And filled between with curious art The ragged brush ; then , hovering near , We watched the first red blaze appear , Heard the sharp crackle , caught the gleam On whitewashed wall and sagging beam , Until the old , rude-furnished room Burst flower-like into rosy bloom ; Shut in from all the world without , We sat tbe clean-winged hearth about Content to let the north wind roar , In baffled rage at pone and door , While the red logs before us boat The frost-line back with tropic heat . And ever , when a louder blast Shook beam and rafter as it passed , The merrier up its roaring draught The great throat of the chimney laughed The house-dog on his paws outspread Laid to the fire his drowsy head ; Tho cat s dark silhouotte on tho wall A couchant tiger s seemed to fall ; And , for the Winter...

THE patent right suit pending between the Farmers Friend Hay Press manufactured by George Ertel &amp; Co ., of Quiney , 111 ., and the Deidrich Press , was decided by the court January 31 st , in favor of Ertel &amp; Co . IF every person * tvho is a subscriber to the FARM , FIELD AND FIBESIDE would only secure another subscriber aiid send it to us we would reach the 200 , 000 very quickly . Let all try and see what they can do . THE magnitude of such an undertaking as the publication of the FABM , FIELD AND FIBESIDE may be well illustrated by stating that were we located in a small town there would be doubts as to whether the edition could be mailed in a single month . THE question of t _ . o tariff annually comes up for consideration , the result being simply the maneuvrea of partyleaders for favorable political positions . We fear this country is too large for u uniform tariff , but as long as tariff discussion serves their _ . _ rpose politicians are happy . WE ha...
DIRT-MONEY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
DIRT-MONEY . A great many of the dollars gained in trade at the present time , are soiled with smut and dirt . They are not clean , bright money , representing noble endeavor or honest toil . For instance , the bill-boards in fill our great cities , stare out at the pasSer-by with great illustrations of the can can or the half nude pictures of the giddy creatures of the Black Crook . The play is ignoble , and calls up the lowest passions ; it is obscene , because it suggests so much . The audience flght for standing room , and money rolls in . This is dirt-money . The Police Gazette and its kind , by vulgar pictures , excite lascivious thoughts and the columns are a hot-bed rank with odors of prize fights , dog fights , ; cock fights and horrible crimes— an atmosphere pulsing with wantonness . Its money is dirt-money—vile vapors mixed with gutter mud . Then there are the dailies whose personal columns teem with unblushing invitations that a cannibal , if he could read between the li...
OUR EXPERIMENTAL FARM . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
OUR EXPERIMENTAL FARM . Now Xork , Illinois , Wisconsin , M _&lt;_ iigi i . i and other States have their experimental farms , and there seems to be room for them all , and work enough for every one engaged . As our object is to elevate this journal to the highest standard of efficiency and excellence , we have considered that no better help can be given its efforts than the practical demonstrations from experiments made for the purpose of benefiting our patrons and our paper . The farm experiments will not be limited or confined to any department . Stock , crop ... machinery , and fertilizes will all receive proper attention , the results of which will be published in each issue . The farm will not only be selected in a proper location , but will be placed under the management of those whom we have already selected for the purpose , and while intending to make the experimental farm equal to any , our labors will not end there , as our motto is onward .
THE MORMON PROBLEM . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
THE MORMON PROBLEM . The Mormons are a people leading polygamous lives , backed by an immoval religion , whose social beliefs are abhorrent to virtue and piety , who violate our laws and who defy our power . They are hostile to our interests and all attempted solutions for the solving of the Mormon problem have proven wholly ineffective . The victims of the male Mormon s lust come from tie lowest , unthinking , unquestioning classes of Europe , their marriage improving their worldly prosperity . Believing themselves right the Mormons went out of the way of our wrath , went over alkali deserts and fruitless lands , ov . v : ito 1 : &gt; h . art of the Western mountains , so far that all the busy noise of the world was hushed in their ears . Here the wandering tribe built their temple and dreamed of peace and rest . The anger of the people cooled and forgot their weak enemies and to-day , in our morning dawn of prosperity , they return a mighty host beating at our very doors ....

PLEASANT HOURS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 March 1884
PLEASANT HOURS . All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy , but amusement , that combines with it some instruction , often gives more genuine pleasure than any simply meaningless game could confer . Combinations formed from any certain word afford an excellent exercise of ingenuity , and will often interest a whole household . One evening , some time since , we joined a group of six or eight gathered about a center table , all engaged in this pastime , and while each enjoyed the fun , the grandmother and youngest child were equally anxious to discover the greatest amount of words possible , in a given time . The facility with which the small boy found a surprising number of little words in Constantinople , and his occasional lapses in spelling , as in ambitious attempt he essayed big ones , provoked our merry shouts of laughter . The student , aged by sixteen venerable years , gravely dug from the past obsolete words , which we were sure couldnt be right , until he triumphantly pr...
