AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

AGRICULTURAL OUR AGRICULTURAL COLLEGES . OHIO STATK UNIVERSITY . [ FORMERLY ] OHIO AGJRICCLTUBAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE . This institution is of more recent date than most of those already described in the columns of the FARMERS REVIEW . It was first opened for students in September , 1873 . It has graduated but two classes and has yet to gain a constituency in the State in the shape of a body cf tried and true friends . It is not an agricultural college in the sense in which the institutions of Michigan and Massachusetts of this name are such , but it rather agrees with the Illinois Industrial University in making agricultural education a prominent but by no means exclusive object in its course . It provides for education in agriculture by the following means : 1 . A Profettorthip of Agriculture . — -The time of one professor is given chiefly to instruction in this subject A two years course is provided and the range of topics treated is shown in the appended schedule , it is to be...

A SOUTH OF ENGLAND FARM . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

A SOUTH OF ENGLAND FARM . Written / or the F-RMEKS REVIEW . On leaving the Agricultural College at Cirncester , of which he was a graduate and in wiiich he had held the professorship of agriculture for 18 years , Prof . John Wrightson , two years ago , secured a farm on the border line between Hampshire and Wiltshire , some eight miles from Salisbury , and has devoted himself to its management and to instruction of agricultural pupils , of whom he has four to six throughout the year . It was my good fortune to spend a day on this farm last week , and some notes of it I hope may be of interest to American farmers . The farm contains 585 acres , of which 485 are arable ; 45 in permanent water meadows , and 55 in permanent pasture . It has a river front , on which the irrigated meadows face , extends back over some level alluvial fields and on through more elevated lands until the topis well on the Downs . The length is three miles with the sides nearly parallel except at the two ends ...

TOBACCO CULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

TOBACCO CULTURE No . 6 . —TOPPINO . From transplanting until ready to top , the plants grow ( or should ) with great rapidity . The plants may be topped ( seed leaf ) just as soon as it buttons , as the Southern and Western growers say , or it may be allowed to blossom before the plants are topped . This operation , simply , is that of pinching off with the thumb nail , or breaking oft with the hand , the leading stem or sprout of each plant , which would , if left alone , run up to flower and seed ; but which , from the more substantial formation ot the leaf , by the help of the nutritious juices which are thereby afforded to tbe lower parts of the plant and thus absorbed through the ducts and fibres of the leaf , is rendered more weighty and fit the better for use . The fertility of the soil will determine how low to top the plants . It the soil is very rich from ten to twelve leaves should be left on each plant Yara tobacco that is grown on the Island of Cuba , and which reaches ...

WHY NOT BE HONEST ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

WHY NOT BE HONEST ? The principal object of thc farmer , after lie has harvested his produce , is to dispose of it at the highest price the market will aftbrd . In order to do this two things are necessary : First , that the articles be in good condition and properly prepared for market ; and second , the farmers should have a good reputation for honesty and fair dealing . It is popularly supposed that farmers , as a class , are the most honest people in the world . This may be true , but there are those who would hardly be willing to accord to the average farmer a place in the front rank of honest people . This is a subject that would admit of a great deal of argument , but as that would not serve the purpose of this article it will only be said here that there are a great many honest farmers and a great many who practice Ways that are dark and tricks that are vain . And these latter not only injure their own interests by tlieir trickery , but they are a decided injury to their mor...

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK SHEEP AS GRAIN CONSUMERS . The REVIEW has heretofore asked attention of its readers to the consideration of a more general introduction of sheep into the ordinary farm economy . Prominence has been given to their especial adaptation for economizing much waste grain and useless herbage that , without their presence , would go to swell the profit and loss account on a majority of the farms in tlie agricultural States . This aspect of sheep husbandry can not be too often presented or too forcibly emphasized . The occupation of farming is no exception to the rule that wealth comes to its votaries through what is saved rather than from what is produced . But this feature of sheep husbandry is not its only commendation . In most localities properly selected animals will be found profitable consumers of the better grain products of the farm . Corn , the great staple of the Mississippi valley , upon which is anchored the hopes of its farmers and feeders , can be made to ...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE DAIRY . THE dairy show at Berlin was not a financial success . The expenses were greater than the receipts by about $ 4 , 000 . Bad weather and little city interest in dairy matters are to blame . AMERICAN cheese is being sold in the midlands of England at lid . ( three cents ) per pound . Poor stuff it must be , of course , and it is the poor stuff that is hurting the reputation of all American cheese . There is great want of care in this respect of sending poor cheese lo foreign markets . But we suppose the matter will regulate itself . The interest must suffer until makers all realize that it is only a really good article that will pay in the long run . AUGUST has been severe in dairy pastures , as it almost always is . Where corn fodder had not been provided , the decrease in the yield of milk has been very large . But we presume most dairymen put in a few acres of sowed corn last Spring , and are now reaping the advantage of it in the milk yield of their cows . Between the ...

VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

VETERINARY A VARIETY OF FOOD NECESSARY . No fact in dietetics is better established than that concerning the impossibility of long sustaining health and life on a single alimentary principle . Neither pure albumen , fibrine , gelatine , gum , sugar , starch , fat nor oil taken alone , can serve for the due nutrition of the bodj . This is partly due to their , failing in supplying the waste of the tissues , and partly to the fact that single alimentary substances , long continued , excite euch a feeling of disgust that animals experimented upon seem to prefer the endurance of starvation to the ingestion of the same . Our readers are probably aware that when a person is long confined to any particular article of diet , a craving for something else is experienced , which very few persons can resist This teaches us that in order to preserve the health of live stock we must vary the diet , and are not to be overparticular in selecting the most nutritious articles . A certain amount of co...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

ENTOMOLOGICAL ( Writtenfor the FABMEBS RBVIEW . ) THE IMPORTED CABBAGE-WORM IN THE SOUTH . Bx PROF . C . V . Bnxx . The annual westward progress of the Imported Cabbage-worm { PrMs rapes ) has been recorded and the insect is known to bave reached Chicago , and touched as far south as St . Louis , during the year 1878 . There is one feature of its spread southward , however , which is peculiar and worthy of special mention . During my recent trip in the Southern States I found it quite common all along the line of the Alabama Central railroad , though I did not find it further South or near the coast at Mobile , where a good deal of attention is being paid to market-gardening . The butterflies must certainly have flown last year from the region of St Louis to the southernmost point where I found them , as Judge J . F . Bailey , of Marlon , who is a close observer , assured me that while this species was not noticed last year , it appeared quite early the present year . The long dista...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

HORTICULTURAL ( Written for the r _ RMBns REVIEW . ) STRAWBERRY EXPERIENCE IN 1879 BY . 0 . B . GALUSHA , SEC . III . HORT . SOC . About twenty years ago there was a general revival of interest in strawberry culture , which many thought would be short-lived and of little valuable results . But , on the contrary , the interest has incre ased from year to year , affecting , for the most part , the more intelligent classes of farmers and fruit growers ; aud for the obvious reasons that improvements have been rm . de , both in the quality and productiveness of this fruit , and that the finer varieties of strawberries are more generally relished , even to an epicurean fondness , than any other fruit which is susceptible of cultivation over so wide an area . It has also been demonstrated that no fruit , except , perhaps , the apple , can be so cheaply grown by every owner of soil—however small Its area—as the strawberry ; and that none is so certain to reward e very intelligent cultivator...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 September 1879

THE APIARY ( Written Jor the FAKNERS RfVi- W . ) WINTERING BEfll BY PROF A . J . COOK , MICH . AG . COLLEGE . In view of the serious losses by bee-keepers during the past winter , and its two or three predecessors of the past ten years , there is scarce any subject so worthy attention and study , and so sure to gain it , as the one at the head of this article . If we may judge by the past , we may expect these trying seasons about once in three years . Notwithstanding this probability , I feel certain that the wise and painstaking apiarist has nothing to fear ; more than this , I believe these , trying winters will be to his advantage , on the principle of the survival of the fittest The careless , Ignorant bee-keepers , with their unmarketable honey , will be weeded out , and he will be spared tbe competition . This is a double advantage , as it is the illy prepared honey ot these ignorant , slovenly bee-keepers that most depreciates prices . It seems more and more certain that wis...
