Curing Hams and Bacon . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
Curing Hams and Bacon . MR . EDITOR : Can you give the process for sugar curing , to make what is called breakfast bacon ! 1 W . S . S . Qalesburg . Mo . Breakfast bacon is that part of the flank and side containing the large streaks oi lean mixed with the fat . The curing and smoking is identical with that for hams . THE DUTTON MOWER KNIFE GRINDER . except that bacon is generally smoked somewhat more than hams . The smoking of either bacon or hams should occupy about fourteen days , and the meat should hang so far from the fire as not to become heated . In smoking , the less fire and more smoke , the better . Green hickory , maple and beech are good in the order named , for smoking . Next to these , com cobs , if clean , may be used . In fact , many persons think corn cobs preferable to any wood except maple or hickory . One of the best processes for sugar curing is to rub the hams or bacon thorgouhly with hot salt , and allow them to drain two or three days . Then for each fourtee...
The Dutton Mower Knife Grinder . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
The Dutton Mower Knife Grinder . If you have a good mower or reaper , you want a good machine for grinding the sickles , one that will grind true and with the least exertion by the operator . If the machine is not first-class , so much more need of a first-class grinder . The illustration shows f or stself . It is a good one and simple . It may be attached in a moment to the wheel of the mower , m the field , and sharpened while the team is resting . It is readily adjusted to hold the knife while being ground , and hence , a single section of it becoming nicked , may be touched up , and thus prevent dragging of the grass or grain . The R . H . Allen . Company , 180-191 Water street , New York City , keep them . —The New York Tribune pertinently says : The oily and pleasant gentlemen who follow their profession of swindling with such indefatigable industry must find much to complain of in papers which go —or ought to go—to everybody s door , continually finding fault with their repre...

. Congress and Bogus Butter . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
. Congress and Bogus Butter . Congress seems to have found out that the farmers mean business as to tne bogus butter imposition . A snb-oom-mlteeof the Committee on Ag » c * lture met to consider the question of legislation to regulate the salei of ^« W ™ » and other artificial imitations of butter . All the bills sent to the committee touching this subject have been referred to iJr . Swinburn , ex-Mayor of Albany , , A- ¦ *• , who represents the Albany . distnct , to examine in detail . Two bills were under consideration , to be taken up w turn . Dr Swinburn believes the committee will ultimately report a bill providing not only for the stamping of all artificial butter in plain letters , but requiring in addition that this shall be done by agents of tho Internal Revenue Bureau m order to make it more effective and durable . Congressmrn Parker , of New York , who represents a district containing a number of large dairies , has introduced a bill requiring that each package of artifi...
The Farmers Will Buy . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
The Farmers Will Buy . The country is on the up grade . There is again money , afloat . Farmers are buying seeds and implements to . take the place of those worn out during the depression . This is especially shown by the growth of the F ABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN in its subscription list , and no less so in its advertising columns . Our patrons want to know where they may buy the best We have a circulation extending to 20 , 571 postoflices , considerably exceeding 52 , 000 weekly copies , largely circulating in the great grain-producing regions of the great West . This is proof that our readers live in the districts where grain and garden seeds and implements are wanted . The farmers have the money to buy , and will naturally do so with firms who advertise in their favorite paper .. A word to the wise is sufficient .
Making Farmers Fay Double . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
Making Farmers Fay Double . The Hon . James F . Wilson , of Iowa , has introduced into the Senate of the United States a bill striking directly at every farmer , suburban resident- and villager who has even a rood of ground . It is a bill doubling the postage on plants , seeds , cions , and other fourth class matter . It seems strange that this bill should have been sprung just now , when seedsmen and florists , and all that class who have to buy seeds and plants , have made arrangements for the season . It is a direct blow against seedsmen and all who buy . There are about 7 , 000 , 000 farmers in the United States , and as many more who get thoir seeds by mail . It would seem to be directly in the interest of the Express companies , who , although they have reduced their rates to about equal those of postage , yet , once this law is passed , will , without doubt , as sharp business men , immediately put up the tariff to old time rates . But this is not tho worst feature of the bil...
A Bale of Bed Tape . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
A Bale of Bed Tape . There has been a serious riot at Seattle , Washington Territory , over the antiChinese feeling there . A great mobcame together under the lead of Actmg-Chief-Police Murphy . The Sheriff , with a few followers , attempted to quell the mob , but could make no headway . Then the Governor issued a proclamation . It was received by the mob with a howl of derision The Governor sent a telegram to the Secretary of War for troops . Those at Fort Townsend were ready to move , and only waiting for orders from Washington . Gen . Gibbon , in command , said he could not send troops without direct orders from the President . No mlormation seemed forthcoming from the Adjut ant-General s office in Washington , and Lieut . Gen . Sheridan is reported to have said : If there has been any trouble there I have not heard of it . I know nothing whatever about it . Now the question arises , why our United States army , and a General commanding , cannot act without unraveling bales and b...
Co-Operative Dairying . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 February 1886
Co-Operative Dairying . It is well known that no branch of agriculture is more profitable than dairying . It is also supposed to be exceedingly confining to those who follow it . This is true . Milking must be done twice a day , rain or shine , Sundays as well as week days ; but what business is not confining if carefully and successfully followed ? In dairying , however , as in any other business , when necessary , the dairyman may get away on business , since the regular help at such times may easily get through the work of the farm . it is not only in the profit arising from the manufacture of dairy products , when pure and guaranteed so , but the farm , instead of getting poorer , as in exclusive grain farming , is really getting more and more fertile , since nothing is carried away but the butter and cheese of the milk . It even pays always to buy additional food when the farm is heavily stocked ; for the cow with extra food gives down an extra quantityof milk , under good care...

Morrow , in sending us notice , pertinently says there can be no doubt of the interest and value of such meetings when well conducted , and hopes all may be largely attended . We should be glad to see the work much extended ; to know that in addition to these leadinginstitutes—for which somewhat elaborate preparations are made , and at which speakers will be present from distant parts of the State—there were to be held county or township meetings of somewhat si...
