THE GRANGE OUTLOOK
PUBLISHED WEEKLY i
KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE. i"
On or before the 2_th day of March, 1874, the
undersigned will issue a journal in the city of j
Knoxville, Tennessee, called
THE ORANGE OUTLOOK.
It will be devoted to t'« prosecution of the j
great work known now throughout the United (
States as the "Farmer's Movement," or "The _
Patrons of Husbandry." Its distinctive aim
will be the intollectnal, moral, social, and fln.an- T
cial elevation of the agricultural and working i
classes of the country, to guard and protect
them against fraud, to assist them in their c
work, and to stand by them In all their struggles. \
No ANTAGONISM to classes. No war will J
be waged ngfilnst other classes so long as they .
make no war upon the industrial classes. Tbe i
law of mutual dependence is folly recognized
and acknowledged, In all Its force and potency, J
and, therefore, it would be unjust to attack any g
class whose aim is. in a legitimate way, to pro- i
tectitself and to secure those immunities esseu- !
tial lo its own existence. Tho farmers and r
working classes, however, must i
ORGANIZE FOR THEIR OWN PROTEC- J
And In doing so, they are simply obeying the c
promptings ol an Instinct and an impulse, !
which, to-day, is swaying and controlling all |
classes in the United States. Mutual protec
tion is what they demand, and is what they J
will have at all reasonable hazards. THE j
GRANGE OUTLOOK will encourage and .
stimulate tha growth of this sentiment, believ '
ing it to be essential to the happiness and pros
perity of ihe classes in question.
EDUCATIONAL, SOCIAL AND MORAL j
Regarding these great principles as the foon j
datfon—in fact, the chief corner-stone of mdi- ]
\ld' aland national success—no effort will be
spared to give them due prominence. i
Partisan politics can find no place in its (
columns. The great movement which it has the .
honor of representing does not. happily, admit
the dl6cnsslon of politics This wise and
thoughful provision will be adhered to tena
THE ORANGE OUTLOOK will extend
the olive branch to struggling humanity In all
parts of oar land. It will be governed by no
sectional lines One flag floats over onr com
mon country, and under Its ample folds it will
battle for the contlnn-d welfare of every sec
tion, thus binding together indlssolnbly, the j
East, the North, the South, and ths West.
COMMERCIAL AND NEWS DEPARTMENT.
Full and accurate reports will be given of the
various markets of the principal cities of the
United States. All the current news of the times j
will be condensed and furnished to tho reader.
Through its ample columns subordinate
granges can co-imunicate with each other, cul- .

gence, and all they need is the opportunity to
establish this fact. (

The work oririnaUv published under tie title
■f THE NEW AMERICAN CYCLO"_EDIA ,
was completed in 1863, since which time the wide
circnlatiun which li has attained in all parts of
the United States, and the signal developments
which have taken place In every branch of ,
science, literature, aud ar', have Induced the
editors and pub lshers to submit it to an exact ,
and thorough revision, and to issue a new edition ,
entitled THE AMERICAN CY'OLO _-_DIA. ,
Within the tost ten years tho piogress of dis- .
covery in every department of knowledge has (
made a new work of reference an Imperative ,
The movement of political affairs has kept
pace with the discoveries of science, and their
fruitful application to the Indus rial and useful
artsaid the convenience and refinement of social (
life. Oreat wars and consequent revolutions (
have occurred, involving national changes of
peculiar moment. The civil war of our own
country, which was nt its height when the last ,
volume of the old work appeared, ha. happily
bee" ended, and a new course of commercial
and industrial activity has been commenced
Large accessions to our geographical knowl
edge have been made by the indefatigable ex
plorers of Africa. ,
The great political revolutions of the last de- J
cade, wlih the natural resultof 'he lapse of time,
have brought into public view a multitude of .
new men, whose names are tn every one's month,
and of whose lives every one is curious to know J
the particulars. Oreat battles have been fought
and Important sieges maintained, of which the |
details arc as yet preserved only in the news
papeis or in the transient publications of the _
day, but which ought now to take their place in •
permanent and authentic history.
In pieparing tho present edition for the press, j
it has accordingly been tho aim of the edl'ors to J
bring down the information to the latest possl ■
ble dates, and to furnish an nccurato account of '
tho most recent discoveries iv science of every c
fresh production in literature and of the newest c
Inventions in the practical arts, ns well as to .
give a succinct and original record of the pro
gress of political and historical events.
' he work ha- been begun after long and care
ful preliminary labor, p.nd with the most ample r
resources for carrying It on to a successful ter- c
None of thi original stereotype plates have
been used, but every page has has been printed
on new type, forming In fact ft new Cyclopaedia, J
with the same plan untl compass as its prede- :
cessor, but with a lar greater pecuniary expend- J
iture, and with su-h improvements in its com- J

rlence and enlarged knowledge
The Illustrations which are introduced for the
first time in the piesent edition have been added j
not for the sake of pictorial effect, hut to give '
greater lucidity and force to the explanations '
in the text. They embrace all branches of 1
science nnd of natural history, and depict the '
most famous and remarkable features of scene- "
