Boston Weekly Globe (Newspaper) - December 8, 1891, Boston, Massachusetts The Boston weekly Globe tuesday december Loi. I. June 8. Lato one evening miss Genevieve Harrington. Prima Donna Assouta of the cosmopolitan opera company accompanied by a very proper and trim French maid and a very improper and startling array of trunks embarked upon the Groat steamship Westmoreland outward bound. Upon the same ship or. Henry Winthrop set foot some minutes later. Everybody knew mile. Genevieve. Her wonderful voice and her pretty self had taken the operatic world by storm. Nobody knew Harry he was Only a tall Young Man fresh from College with his triumphs All before him. The very first sensation that Harry Felt on Awakening the following morning was one of much pain. Pesci Pitten its Euf fairly in hts arms. The upper deck was drenched with water. Blinding sheets of Spray were sweeping Over the rails and coursing in Little streams around the Bulkhead. Harry Drew his Mackintosh tighter around him. And crouching Down under a Lifeboat proceeded to Light a cigarette. Match after match sputtered and went out. At last after numberless i successful attempts a Light was obtained and Harry settled Down for a comfortable smoke a ooh a Harry leaped to his feet. What was that with the instinct of an old foot Ball player he Bent Down and braced himself firmly against the davits. A bundle of waterproofs dashed across the sloping deck with a rapidity that would have made a Cannon Ball ashamed of its slowness Aud precipitated itself fairly in his arms. Two hands elapsed the sleeve of a smack i Tosh. He looked Down at them. Very pretty hands they were Small and White. Lie studied the bundle of waterproofs More carefully. Yes without doubt it was a woman. More than that vague fact he could not she was laughing. A pair of dark eyes looked up at him then the lids drooped demurely Over them. A i beg your Pardon sir who heard the voice say a i Hope i have not quite killed you. If you will release to now i think i can get safely Quot release you Madam a said Harry in a melancholy tone. A release you no y of would be swept overboard and i would never forgive myself. Cling to me despite my years i am still Strong and i will Rescue Quot but i done to want to be persisted the voice. Quot or. If you will take my Arni instead of my my i a Madam a said Harry removing his Cap with his unoccupied hand Quot forgive me. In the confusion of the moment i Only thought of stopping your mad Rush to destruction. Had you gotten by my and reached the goal my reputation As full Back would have been a few moments later they were seated on the Lee Side of the Cabin out of the reach of the wind and Spray. A Spray let me introduce myself. I am Harry Winthrop Quot began that enterprising Young person. Quot and i am Genevieve Harrington. In be seen Yon before.

As Harry said Long afterwards a that dinner settled a Tew miserable faced Ueo pie were at the tables every now and then a person would enter the Saloon with the grim determination to get through that meal or die. But they did neither. Nature would mercilessly assert its Sway and they would Slink hastily Back to their staterooms. L books of hatred were cast at the laughing Trio at the captains table. But they were not heeded. The Captain spun out Long sea yarns to his Hoarty a Content. Genevieve poured out the captains Tea. And Harry put in his time by boing ridiculously Happy. It.

Now i done to think its ing herself from the rays of the hot Sun with a Dainty parasol. She was literally surrounded by Young men of All kinds and Ages. But All of them in the same condition of servitude. One of them was occupied in violently fanning her. Another was so much afraid she would catch cold that he covered her carefully Over with a great Steamer Rug. Une Motarassed by these Many attentions Genevieve was looking at Tho tall figure of Winthrop As he leaned against the Cabin some distance away from Tho group and eyed her Many admirers with a disdainful shrug of the shoulders.

A sheep husbandry a discussed by far tidal banners Hon raising. Valuable us rat out for the Farmers use. The annual Public sessions of the Massachusetts Stato Board of agriculture were held last week in horticultural Hall Boston. Below will be found some subjects of Especial interest which received careful attention and excited discussion. A paper on the Quot history of sheep husbandry in Massachusetts a by Hon. James s. Grinnell of Greenfield opened the second Days session wednesday morning. He described at some length the attempts of the Early settlers to raise sheep and said that from the sheep imported by these pioneers came what is known As the common sheep. They were characterized by Black faces and spotted faces. They were known to the colonists As Irish Quot Smuts and English there were bred More for their Wool than their flesh. The rarities of Sheen most regarded in Massachusetts Are South Downs. Hampshire Downs Oxford Downs. Shropshire a Leicestershire a Iki sets Merino and saxons. The decline of Sheen Industry in this Stato dates from about 50 years ago. The causes for this have been variously stated As the fluctuations of the Tariff importation of Wool from Australia and other places the introduction of shoddy increased importations from the West destruction by dogs and imperfect fences. Massachusetts is admirably adapted to sheep growing. The cold climate is far better for sheep than the mild weather of Virginia. Tho paper closed with a dissertation on the valuable properties of Mutton As a food. Or. Hollis gave some statistics of the consumption of Mutton in Boston and said that Verv Little of it came from Massachusetts nearly All being brought from the West Kentucky Tennessee and Virginia. Tho Price per Pound dressed is from 6 to to cents for sheep and from 7 to 12 cents for lambs. So Mutton is Kex port cd from tilts country Secretary sessions had found that the expense of Foli oing and in keeping fences in repair was regarded As a great obstacle to sheep raising. This expense lie said could be Greely reduced by the use of barbed wire Rico which can to made dog proof As Well As sheep proof lie gave a number of statistics to show that such a Lenco can be built for but Little More than the expense of keeping a Stone Wall in repair. I. Averse who had investigated the result of sheep raising on a number of Massachusetts farms. Said that one flock of to Sheen produced 3208, and the expenses were 3106 17 sheep produced $191, Aud Cost $111 60 sheep produced $629 Aud Cost #288. Or. Avert thought one of the most important tilings to to considered is Hie care of sheep which is generally neglected. Hon. John e. Russell was called upon to speak on Tho Tariff Side of the question but he said that be did not recognize that the Tariff has much to do with tile sheep husbandry of Massachusetts. We Don t raise Wool enough he said to make it a matter of importance to us. I have said in Congress and i am ready to repeat it Here that the Farmers West of the Mississippi could afford to keep sheep if Wool w As Worth no More than Hen feathers. When Wool was Mado free Domestic Wool was Worth More Money than it had been a any time before or was at any time after the High Tariff was imposed. Or probably than it Over will he again. Or. Russell bad no doubt that sheep could by Brod at a Bood fro flt even though the Wool product was not taken into account. Col. Daniol Needham told of the taking of sheep from Vermont to Germany to compete at the International exhibition with Tho sheep of Europe. They were Merino Aud were very much ridiculed by the German press. These sheep in spite of a Competition which included an exhibit by the emperor of France were awarded two first prizes and one second. One was for the weight Cly fleece in comparison Witti tile weight of body. Chairman Bowditch described briefly his experience in sheol raising endorsing much that had been said by the other speakers hut he said that to thought or. Avery had put the expense of raising sheep rather nigh. Or. Jabot Fisher of Fitchburg addressed the meeting in the afternoon on a fruit Tiro Wing its demands and its funnies who Bogan with a statement of the kind and proportion of fertilizers necessary to Supply Tho loss of vitality to a tree by reason of its bearing fruit. He then told of the pests that prove destructive to Trees and fruit mentioning Tho tent Caterpillar Curculio common Moth canker worm Apple Maggot and Moth web worm and jumping worm. These May be classed As Leaf eaters and sap suckers. The first of these classes can to killed by spraying the foliage Witti Paris Green just alter Hie leaves appear. Kerosene Oil water and soap made into an emulsion is Ulso valuable in destroying insects. Another pest that is destructive to fruit and tree alike is a fungus growth that Atta Obes itself to Trees and vines. Solutions of Copper have been found the most valuable and effectual remedies for fungi.

More knowledge and greater econ Only in All operations. I Ain a Pioneer of the state of Wisconsin having gone there from Germany As a fugitive Iii 1848. It was therefore somewhat difficult for me to drive in my business As a Silversmith and become a Tiogo Joist laughter Quot what is the profitable hog the hog that consumes the greatest amount of food Iii the shortest Given time and gives the greatest return for the toot consumed. Quot the Farmer should procure the Best possible sire no matter at w hat Cost for a cheap one is the direst animal to Ever bought. Tho care of Swine is greatly neglected by the general Farmer. Tile animal As a Rule is subjected to severe treatment because to is a hog. Too great caution cannot be exercised in this matter at the present time for the germ of disease travels As rapidly As transportation can carry it. Quot no hog should to introduced into a Herd until it has been quarantined at Homo. Die animal As far As my Herd is concerned is put away from Tho Herd for nine or ten Days. Quot tile sire should be Broad Between the eyes the eyes should be full Aud Tho neck Short. Quot the dam should be As nearly As possible the reverse of the sire. Quot tile Boston buyer is Tho most Liberal Man in tile Chicago Market today. Today 250 pounds is All the Market requires. The meat that is required today is what is not either too fat or too lean so we Donot need the immense animal and More. A the food of the sire is not always what it should be. He should have nitrogenous food with a Small amount of fattening food. The dam should have tender care. Quot no mail should engage in hog raising unless he has an adaptability for it. Quot a sow should always have Access to charcoal ashes and rubbish. Quot i consider two acres enough for 120 hogs up to about september. I give them Pease and Clover arum swill twice a Day until the cold weather comes when i give them steamed food. It always pays to Cook food in the Winter and Spring for Tho younger pigs.
