Torrens Law Upheld [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Torrens Law Upheld A NUMBER of the states have ) we understood , adopted the new system of keeping record of titles . It does away with the expense , delay arid inconvenience of the old abstract system , and what is more , the tyranny of the abstract companies . When the law Was first passed in-Illinois its features were fully presented in our columns . A majority of the people confirmed the action of the legislature . But the old system died bard . It was a : blood-sucker and would not let go its grip until the highest court gave its mandate . Last week the Supreme Court of Illinois refused ; further to consider the matter . The case of the People vs . Simons was the last ditch for the abstractors . This may be set down as one of the victories for reform for the year 1898 . The only way to change the Torrens law in the future will be by an act of the legislature . The system started in Australia and has been , adopted by other civilized countries and by State after State in our lan...

The Grange and Progress , [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
The Grange and Progress , THE Grange , which is the pioneer and a typical organization of farmers , is usually found on the right side of every question . ¦ At its closing session the Michigan State Grange , following the example set by various Farmers Clubs , adopted resolutions favoring the immediate establishment of postal savings banks , free rural mail delivery , the election of United States senators . by the people and the abolishment of the free seed distribution system .. The coming legislature was asked to amend the beet sugar law by providing that the payment of the state bounty shall cease the moment-a factory becomes identified with the sugar trust , and to abolish the present optional uniform text-book law . and substitute a compulsory law therefor . * This paper has been an earnest advocate of , postal savings banks and most of the other measures here recommended by the Grange for many years . Several years ago , during the Harrison administration , we framed a postal...
— - ¦ - Made the Matter Plain ' [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
— - ¦ - Made the Matter Plain iV ¦ IN its declaration of principles the-American Federation of Labor , which has just closed its annual session at Kansas City , merely reiterated its former declaration on the money question , wbich was very emphatically in favor of the free coinage of silver . • The goldite organs , ever ready to misrepresent or catch at straws , immediately began to pipe the old , discordant tune , . Another blow at silver . The American Federation of Labor turns its back on . the white metal . ? fThey began the play a little too early , however , and to correct the erroneous impression they meant to convey , as one of its last acts the convention adopted ,, by a practically unanimous vote , the following resolution introduced by Max Morris : Resolved , that it is the sense of this convention that the action of this body in substituting for the resolution of Jobn Kirby concerning the gold standard a resolution reaffirming all the former declarations of the American...
An Increase of the Army [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
An Increase of the Army THERE are many pressing reasons for an increase of the regular army ., Congress is evidently ready to take early action upon one or another of the various bills before it ; one , known as the Miles bill , has the sanction of General Miles . RepresentativeiMcClellan , son of the former commander of the Army of the Potomac , has prepared a bill which makes radical changes tn the staff and in the old organization ; for example : Consolidating the ordnance and artillery , abolishing the signal service and assigning Ita duties to the engineers , providing for . a regiment for the Quartermaster s department and another for the Commissary department—to avoid v the necessity of calling ff or details from the other arms of the service ; : and . ojther very radical changes . It is more probable that the Miles bill will be substantially enacted into law . In his appearance before the military committee Gen . Miles , in fixing upon the dimensions of the army , said he ha...

RURAL AFFAIRS Edited by W . B . Lloyd . Where the Roses Still Bloom MONEY IN PINEAPPLES . — MORE LAND AT GREEN COVE SPRINGSLETTER FROM MR . WILSON . DEAR General Howard : Like the birds of . passage , I have again taken wings to the Southland . This time to Florida , where Jack Frost has . not yet laid bis blighting hand . I , too , wish I could remain here , until in the eternal conflict between hoary old Jack and the genial sunshine the latter had once more gained the victory and driven the crusty old fellow with his icy fingers back to the regions df eternal snow . Dear old Green Cove Springs is assieepy and cozy as ever . The same old mule driven by the same old darkey pulls the same old street-car from depot to hotel—all growing old and seedy together . Jack ; Frost has not yet put in his appearance , consequently all vegetation is green . We had green beans and radishes , fresb-from the garden . The roses 1 and other floors are also blooming profusely in the gardens . I was to...
Best Selling : HOSTS [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Best Selling : HOSTS IN October last we asked several live stock commission men of the Union Stock Yards , Chicago , a number of questions regarding the kind of hogs that sell . best on the Chicago market . Following are the questions and the answers of three firms : ¦ 1 . What weight and style of hogs find the most ready sale and command the highest prices ? Clay . Robinson &amp; Co .: In answering this question , we would not be justified in giving the pi-eference to , any special weight or style of hog , as , first one particular grade and then another will be forced to a premium , according to the scarcity or extra demand for that special . class . As called for usually by the buyers ori -this market , we have three general grades of hogs , namely , the good light , or those weigh ing from 160 to 200 . pounds ; the medium weights , • weighing . • from- 210 to 280 pounds , and the heavy , weighing from 280 pounds up . These three grades are always in demand and will meet ...
Landlord and Tenant [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
Landlord and Tenant A GREAT deal has lately been written about the relations of landlord and tenant , and the solution of the socalled tenant question . Much of this is too impractical to have any present good effect . Ownership , of land is the law of the land , and we had best deal with , the subject as it is , rather &lt; than : to suggest possible , but improbable changes in our economic relations . In the first place , permit me to say that I am , unfortunately , a landlord , and own several farms . I-wish I did : not own them . . There must be considered the landlord s interest . He owns the farm before be secures a tenant . In justice to himself he should secure a good tenant . To do this , he should consider the character , worldly condition , intelligence and capability of the tenant . Then he should consider whether the particular tenant is best for his farm . A poor tenant , one who will not work , and who will not -be a good citizen , has no right to rent-a , goo...

I have only about thirty old ; ones , on hand . . : For these sixty-five chickens I feed : about a gallon of corn- ( crushed ) or that much wheat a day . Is- that sufficient , giving them all ; from the table , etc . ? The chickens are common mixed stock ; but Lintend to get fine birds later . I thought of trying my hand at common birds first . During : the last winter . ; and this early spring I got from thirteen : to eighteen and twenty e...

How a Steer Cuts Up [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
How a Steer Cuts Up It may be -interesting to see how an- ordinary beef will cut up at the slaughter house .

This slightly exceeds the average weight of the cattle received at these stock yards during . 1897 : Sides , 660 pounds ; tallow , sixty ; liver , • ten ; heart , four ; tongue , five ; sweetbreads , two ; hide , eighty-five ; fertilizer , fourteen ; dry blood , four ; bones , four ; horns , two ; hoofs , five ; sinews , four ; tail , two ; waste , 339 .

The Common Test of Pure Honey [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898
The Common Test of Pure Honey H ONEY consumers who buy either large or small quantities of honey should acquaint themselves as much as possible as to what constitutes pure honey , or to the genuineness of the • article they pay for . That honey adultera tion is at present largely practiced there is but little doubt . This is the case more especially with the extracted article ,, as the comb honey cannot be so easily doctored . The a , piarist , or the producer , is clearly innocent of this illegitimate business , as the work of this kind of speculation usually occurs in second hands . Owing to the lack of knowledge by the masses of the people of what constitutes pure honey , this proves a profitable business for these counterfeiters . The cheapest of all cheap sirups , such as glucose , enters largely into these deceptions , and in many cases there is not a single drop of the genuine article to be found in them . I have seen packages said to be broken comb honey in glass jars that w...
