THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

THE APIARY . INCREASING BEE SWARMS . There are many bee-keepers , says , L . C . Root , a well-known bee authority , who disapprove of any mode of handling bees that checks or controls their natural tendencies . Consequently they favor only natural swarming . Now , I desire to say that unrestricted natural swarming is the most unprofitable system of increase that can be practiced . In fact , I know of no one thing which is practiced to any extent which is so thoroughly undesirable and so far behind the times . Even the box hive and brimstone pit do not prove their advocates so unwise as are those who allow this mode of swarming . Those using the box hive might control swarming to the extent that sufficient honey would be secured to warrant the application of the brimstone match . A little over one year ago I suggested this motto : Keep each colony supplied with a laying queen at all times . Now I desire to make a strong assertion , and I ask bee-keepers to consider it . With a knowl...

MONEY AND COMMERCE . FINANCE , TuasDaiT Bvamae . Mav nth . lggo . The money market remains dull and weak . Operators on the Board of Trade who have had advances on grain and provisions are steadily returning them , hence the banks find their surplus funds on the Increase , while the opportunities for using them in such a way as to render them productive are daily becoming more limited . The prevailing rate , for loans on choice city paper are 6 @ 8 per cent , although large sums can be had ou grain and provision collaterals at B @ BU ver cent . There is a large amount of money seeking loans on real estate at 6 @ 8 on city and 7 @ 8 per cent on farms , but the demand is small in proportion to the supply .

RAISING MULES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

RAISING MULES . In Mr . Prime s new book , Model Farms and Their Methods , two writers speak of their manner of raising and breeding these useful animals . Mr . Parsell , of Jersey County , 111 ., says that in breeding and raising mules he keeps three brood mares and uses a well-bred Spanish Jack . Aa experience of thirty years teaches him that to grow large , compact , well-formed mules , with good action , one must have the very best bred mares . Give them good pasture , and no grain . At five months he weans the foal , and feeds two quarts of oats twice per day . Run them in the pasture in the day , and stable at night . He commences haltering them at six months old , and handles them carefully . He raises mules for profit . Never sold one for less than $ 125 , and as high as $ 860 each . He always aimed to raise large , compact , well-formed animals . Mr . R . 0 . Munger , of Iroquois County , says that he has found that if a man does not wish to breed from his work teams , the ...

LIVER ROT IN SHEEP [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

LIVER ROT IN SHEEP Readers of English agricultural journals flnd much space devoted to accounts of Sheep Rot among the flocks of Great Britain . The destruction of sheep is very great in Somersetshire , Wiltshire , Dorsetshire , Devonshire , and other counties . The true seat of the disease is the liver and it caused by a parasite called a fluke . The fluke is a mysterious fellow , develop , ing in a manner something similar to the tape worm . The transformations which it undergoes , as far as known , are very curious . Mr . Buckmaster , before the Corn Exchange at Grantham , said regarding it : Here you have a living thing the shape of a sole , about half an inch in length , of a dark brown color , apparently without nerves , legs , eyes , or sex . This thing finds its way through the stomach , and fastens itself by a sucker on the liver of a sheep . Here it lays eggs—some say 2 , 000 or 8 , 000 , others 40 , 000 . These eggs pass out of the body and are distributed over the land ;...

LIVE STOCK NOTES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

LIVE STOCK NOTES . A GREAT deal of attention has of late been directed to tbe American traffic in live and dead stock . Breeders generally , and not without cause , view with alarm the extra exertions of Cousin Jonathan to increase the supply of meat But we are disposed to look on this question with less foreboding . So what they like , the Americans must give way to home-fed stock , which will always command a better price in the market Even now , when a glut occurs , the price of foreign meats falls to a somewhat unprofitable figure . Should increased supplies continue , the British stock , feeder will still be able to command higher rates for his produce . He has the advantage of being on the spot , no fear of imported disease , nearness of markets , very fair railway accommodation , and convenience for slaughtering when needed . Home-grown meat will always maintain a high character in the market ; and so long as we can produce it at 7 d . per lb . —the best American only fetches...

TALLOW IS NOT BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 13 May 1880

TALLOW IS NOT BUTTER Commenting upon the pronunciation of oleomargarine , the g in which is hard , a newspaper says that those who have used it pronounce it an unmitigated fraud . This is not bad as a joke or a fact , for whatever can be said of its merits as a substitute for butter , oleomargarine is certainly a fraud in its appearance on the market . Neither congressional favor nor manufacturers puffs have as yet demonstrated that it dares to face the genuine article in a fair competition . No grocer , who has oleomargarine for sale , gives it its name . It pretends to be butter , and is tallow , and is therefore a fraud . And . the fraud goes to a length which it seems should properly subject it to legal action . Beef tallow is not worth as much as prime butter , whether disguised or not , and the attempt to sell it for the price of butter is an attempt to swindle , and nothing else . Congressmen may taste it and smell it , and say it is just as good , but it remains a fact that ...
