Old fancy tables and chairs which are too shabby for . the parlor can be made to look equal to new articles ; and among the refuse furniture to be found in the corners of garrets , lumber-rooms and auction-marts may Often be seen fine specimens of antique patterns , odd-looking and quaint , which will answer better for this purpose than anything which could be made to order . To prepare a fancy table of this description let the whole be well cleansed , and freed from grease .

The Opposition tothe Wool and Woolen ' Exposition . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

The Opposition tothe Wool and Woolen Exposition . The Pralile Fartaer gives a remarkable argument against the Northwestern Wool and Woolen Exposition . It was disappointed when the National Exposition was postponed , because it believed that an exhibition gotten up upon this basin , would prove a grand success , and result In great good , both to wool growers and manufacturers . But the proposed Exposition will result in the glory and profit of the manufactures alone . It cannot see how any grower can expect tp receive auy benefit under these rules If an exhibition should pe held once a month . It states that subsequent to the announcement of the indefinite postponement of this ( the National ) Exhibition the Chicago Exposition was determined on , hint makes no mention of the fact that the association bad passed a resolution thanking the wool-growers for the proposition to hold the National Exposition , pledging tbe cooperation of the Northwestern Manufacturers , and stating that if...

Hones in Horthera Michigan , ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ • ¦ [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

Hones in Horthera Michigan , ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ • ¦ To the young men , or others who desire homes of their own * I would say there is no place which offers so many advantages as Northern Michigan . * Some people imagine , it is one vast pinery , that the soil Is sandy and barren , that it ls cold and frosty , but this Is a great mistake . Over four-fifths of Northern Michigan Is beautiful farming lands covered with elm , beach , maple , bass , ash , etc ., while along the brooks and creeks may be . found cedar and hemlock . The W inters commence aboutthe first of December and last until the end of March , and then , such a sudden transition from Winter to Spring is not ; to be met with in the Southern parts of the State . ; This is undoubtedly the best wheat growing portion of the State , as the snow remaining on the ground prevents it from being winter , killed . AH kinds of grain , and vegetables do as well here , In the Grand Traverse region—as in any part of the State—corn and buckwheat ex...

The " Wooi Buyers' Eulea . " I [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

The Wooi Buyers Eulea . I We have , on more than one occasion , stated our position as to the rules prescribed by many wool-buy-lrs associations as to the shrinkage on wools . We believe , any rule prescribing a uniform rate of shrinkage on all unwashed wool or on any other class of wool is clearly unjust and one that ought hot to be submitted to by the seller . We believe that all wool should be bought on its merits . We urge * all wool-growers to Insist that these arbitrary and unjust rules shall be abolished , and Insist on selling their wool for what it is worth without reference to the . amount of -shrinkage that ought to be made ln the case of . their neighbors . We believe a reform in this matter can and will be affected . If the wool-grow-ers will act on their convictions and refhse to sell their wool under these rules—at tbe same time taking all care to put up their wool in the best manner , giving the buyer no possible ground for complaint—they will not be long In force . ...

The Wool Tariff and Wool Market . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

The Wool Tariff and Wool Market . The report of the Committee to lrivesti gate the mannerof appraising imported wools at the New York and Boston Custom Houses will soon be made . The editor of the Ohio Farmer , writing of the thorough examination at New York , believes the Committee was unanimous In the opinion that : the tariff law is being fully and fairly executed .. He says there has been little or no . clothing wool entered for consumption since July 1867 , and nearly all that entered In bond has been re-shlpped to Europe , while the great bulk of South American and Australian wools are virtually excluded , and the only considerable importations for consumption are hair wools for carpeting , most of which pays a duty of six cents per pound and Interferes very Uttle -with any class of domestic wool . He is more than ever of the opinion that the wool growers have all they can reasonably ask in the way of protection by a tariff on Imports . He has the best of reasons for believing...

Fruit in Southern Illinois . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

Fruit in Southern Illinois . . The-crop of strawberries in Southern Illinois was very considerably affected by the frost of April 4 , and by later rains which washed off the pollen front the bloom Many of the berries : were of small size and poor quality . The same causes have had a like effect but to a less extent further north . Rural writes to the Chicago Tribune from Cobden , Ul ,, May 26 , that the strawberry crop there was not more than half what lt was last year . The peach crop , is light , some orchards having a frill ch > p and others none . The cherry crop was almost entirely destroyed . Apples and pears are nearly a failure there . There is a good prospect for grapes , raspberries and blackberries . Fruit buyers from Cincinnati and St . Louis divided the market with Chicago . Detroit is also coming into direct communication with this fruit region . Rural- * predicts that before five years trains will run from it to New York and Boston . »* *

. Hotel from Washington . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 6 June 1868

. Hotel from Washington . The weather during the Spring has been generally cold and wet in Maryland and Virginia , and as a consequence , the fruit and vegetable markets of Washington present a poor showing . Strawberries have been brought , in comparatively small quantities , from Norfolk and vicinity , but their quality is inferior , though prices are the reverse . In the Shenandoah Valley , Va ., I understand the corn has not been planted up to this date , ( May 26 th , ) the wet weather . having prevented . In Maryland corn has been planted in some parts , although it has beeu difficult to find weather to do it .

The following Is based on Information fbrnlshed by the Statistical , Division of the Department of Agriculture , the Information being , probably , up to about May 15 : Rarely are bur Winters so favorable to fall sown wheat as that of 1867-8 . The New England States are encouraged to attempt wheat culture more largely by the fine condition of that now In the ground . The season was equally favorable ln the Middle States , which report discouraging facts affecting the . Winter crops . .. In Livingston Co ., New York , thesowing was later than usual on account of the drought causing a comparatively puny appearance at the opening of Spring .
