INSURANCE ITEMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS . CAUSES OF FIRE—ACTUAL AND PROSPECTIVE . —A glance at tbe causes of fire in the list of fire losses In this and the preceding numbers ot the REVIEW , will convince every body that a large number of fires occurring at this season are due to defective flues . This is what might be readily expected at this season of the year , and merely carries out the experience o ( former years . The flues and stove pipes naturally become foul during several Winter months of constant use and the strain caused by the high winds so prevalent in the month of March , are very apt to develop existing defects in flues , or to occasion them and the accumulated soot taking fire , has an excellent opportunity to occasion these losses so frequently recorded in this column . This mild Winter is very apt to be followed by a long chilly Spring , extending the use of stoves beyond the usual period , and no one should neglect an early investigation of stove-pipes and flues , to see that they are i...

PROBABLE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

PROBABLE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES . A great many persons are now guessing at what figure the forthcoming census will place the population of this country . Prof . Tucker in his book Progress of the United States , estimated that in 1880 we should have 54 , 586 , 795 people . His rule for estimating was that by adding three per cent , of population to the total number each year a very close approximation would be reached . He wrote many years ago , and began with 1830 . It will be seen by the following comparative table that his estimates thus far have proven very close : Population l > 7 Census . Estimated . In 1830 12 , 868 . 020 18 , 811 , 118 In 1840 17 . 069 . 45 S 17 , 217 , 706 In 1850 23 . 191 . 876 28 . 188 . 004 In 1860 31 . 443 . 821 31 . 095 , Mf > In 1870 38 , 558 , 371 40 . 617 , 608 The rule made an over- estimate between 1860 and 1870 , but of course Prof . Tucker did not take into consideration the degtrBotiye war 9 f tft ? rebflUoji . MR...

LITERARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

LITERARY . LITTLE WORKS . • . Lahore e » t ovare —on this Earth We work and worship—every man must work ; Ev n those who worship only , as It seems , And do no work , may influence the World . And work salvation to some sinning soul . Let us not judge—what we mny think a waste Of precious time , may be bnt sowing seeds Of mighty vineyards growing goodly fruit . Nor think that great things must always be done To show the World what prayerful work can do . Ev n listless Angers playing with Time s sands , As If Life were but oue long holiday , May yet point mo als to the idle mind , And grains of sand prove to It grains of gold . And though the work of many lives , when years Have passed , appears as passed away with them Yet have the workers gone to their reward ; Not In the praises of this little world , — Not In grand prayers sung to organ tones—Not In great ostentatious gifts to men—But In the little worships—little worksDone daily , that their memory will live ! Walt , work and wo...

ANOTHER WONDERFUL PARROT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

ANOTHER WONDERFUL PARROT I will go back several years and tell you of the most remarkable parrot I ever knew . My father , knowing my desire to have one , employed a connoisseur to make the purchase . It was a fine , young gray bird , with a scarlet tail . When she came to me , the bird had never spoken , and it was some weeks before she did . I took great pains with her . When she began to speak , I taught her to do so distinctly , and Poll soon caught the tones of my voice , though I never anticipated she would become the clever , intelligent bird she did . Her speaking powers were wonderful—not as a simple imitation of words , but like a reasoning , thinking creature . She was my constant companion . When I went to the garden , she would go too , and never attempt to leave me . When I was alone reading or writing , she came out of her cage and amused herself by _ walking about the room . Poll was excessively proud and sensitive . Sometimes my brother teased her , and spoke in a c...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

MISCELLANEOUS JEWISH AND CHINESE BUSINESS COM PETITION . Bismarck s organ , the Oremboten , is publishing a series of articles upon the number , standing and peculiarities of the Jewish race . In regard to number it estimates the total of the race at six millions , of which only one sixth is non-European . The Review of New York says that the estimate for Asia , 750 , 000 , is probably under the truth ; that for Africa , 500 , 000 , may be above the truth . So is the quota for America , 150 , 000 , far below the real figure ; although the two millions claimed by some of our New York Israelites is perhaps an exaggeration , there being scarcely that number of Germans even in the United States . Leaving out the Jews of Turkey in Europe , and those of Asia and Africa , where they exercise but an unimportant influence , we will quote further from our New York cotemporary , which bases an interesting article on the subject as considered in the Oremboten . It is in Europe that , despite ea...
