Forest Preservation in Bohemia [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Forest Preservation in Bohemia C ONSUL MAHIN writes fromReichenberg , September 28 , 1898 : Bohemia . Is one of the most populous countries on the globe . Its climate is relatively cool , -with rather severe winters . Therefore , much fuel is used , and it is largely taken from the forests which cover the mojm £ a 1 1 ; . sides .,. : Set , after the many centuries during which these forests have furnished ; fuel andbuilding material for a dense population , they retain nearly their iprimeval area . This is due to the fore thought of the governriient In ordaining that as trees were cut down others should be planted to fill the vacancies . Vast stretches of dense forests cover the mountain slopes of this district . The wood is • mostly pine . Trees are constantly being cut ; but wherever a clearing is made , small trees are planted the next spring . What at a distance may appear to be a bare spot In the forest , on near view is seen to be covered with little trees , set out in symmetr...

The Orchard ^ I __ By Frank Monroe Beverly . I ve planted ! trees , and these I call An orchard . yet to be ; I wonder , oft If e er therell fall Those apples ripe for me .

I see the birds In early spring Flit mpng the leafless trees ; Their songs of joy and glee they sing—TIs wafted-on the breeze . I know their nests , they re building there , For summer s coming nigh , And then therell be full many a pair Of birdies , by and by . If they . should ne er , bear fruit for me , I have two boys small , And hope that they , may live to see Red -coated apples fall . Dwale . Va .

Fungus Attacks on Cedar Trees 1 [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Fungus Attacks on Cedar Trees 1 FOR many years the cedar trees of the agricultural college . grounds at Manhattan , Kansas , have been attacked by the well known brown fungus ; the socalled cedar apple ( gynmosporanglnus macropris ) . Four years ago the department of horticulture began hand picking the fungus growth on certain groups of trees to determine whether or not by this means the attacks could be reduced and Injury prevented . From that time till the present these treeshave been carefully gone > ver several times each year arid the fungus removed from them . It has not , ; with very few exceptions , been allowed ; to reach the spore bearing stage , here has ,: however , been no diminution of the attack . The disease appears as vigorous at the present time as at any time in the past . The trees are more thrifty than they . would have been had the ¦¦ fungus been allowed to grow undisturbed , but they are no freer from the disease than others that have had no attenti...

Southern Farming [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Southern Farming TO the Editor : Much has been said In your journal about prosperity ; also much about hard times . I wish to say we here in the South feel and see . very little else than hard times . In the North and West , where wheat and cattle command good prices , and are in demand , there is ; Of course , a stimulation for farmers and cattle men , but here in the South in the cotton belt , where we raise cotton , where our : fathers and grandfathers raised cotton , cotton for a ¦ living , cotton for money , cotton for everything which we needea- thtagsgohard . - Now things-have changed , cotton is selling at only four and a half cents per pound , and it costs six cents to produce it . So you see there is a little more expense than margin attached to it . The trouble with our farmers . In . .. the South is that they have not learned to live at home . When we could command ten or twelve cents a pound for cotton ; we could afford to buy many things which we could have raised . No...

Why We Are in a Bog [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Why We Are in a Bog TO the Editor : In reply to 0 . N . Louisiana . —We are in the bog just simply because we do not know how to get out . The average southern farmer just does as his father did . Here in our part of Louisiana there is nothing but rice . There are a few farmers that raise their own garden and potatoes .. Rice-straw makes a good fertilizer , yet it Is less trouble to buy , and a great many dont know it is good for anything only to feed ; so it Is burned and gotten out of the way . Set the rice crop is improved by plowing under straw . We pay the merchant for meat just because it is . too much expense to fence and keep hogs With corn at fifty and fifty-five cents , does it pay ? The rice that goes to waste would keep hogs some years . But they would starve on it this year , as there has been water in the fields most of the time . - - •; ; -, As for molasses , we get a much better quality at thirty-five cents than the home mills can produce . Corn here will only make t...

The Culture of Wheat [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

The Culture of Wheat AT the recent Wheat Growers Convention held in Macon , Ga ., Mr . B . D . . Lumsden , of East Macon , Ga . < read a paper on Wheat Culture from which we take the following : . The proper treatment of the soil is half the battle in wheat culture as well as other crops . It is found as a rule very early and deep plowing is the best . The preparation of the land should be begun as soon as the crop is harvested , when the wheat is to be sown . If in peas , as soon as the peas are pleked , eaten off by the stock or . cut for forage . If in corn , as soon as the stock has had the run of the field . If in cotton , as soon as all cotton that will pay is picked . The leaves ,, stalks , immature bolls , etc ., on the cottom plowed under are worth on an average acre as much as 150 to 200 pounds of commercial fertilizer . This should be done by the middle of November at the farthest . The land should be plowed deep and well pulverized . Wheat should follow a clea...

Notes by the Way-II [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Notes by the Way-II A NEW COUNTRY . —In sections of the country with fifty to two hundred and fifty years of experiment and experience back of its people , there are new questions constantly pressing for settlement , so it must not seem strange that some very simple questions to others are not yet settled in this five to ten year old land . What shall we plant ? is only partially answered , even as to leading • crops , and When ? Where ? and How ? of course further from solution . But progress has been made and some , fundamental principles laid down , as to the main crops of corn , cotton and wheat , of which I have often written . But every farm should have side crops , and we have kaflr , sorghum , millet and many others , but the up-to-date farmer is always on the lookout for something new . * : * * C RAB GRASS . —I have heard much of this , generally as a nuisance , but it seems to me if it ; will grow two or three tons of good hay per acre , as claimed , it nay be a nuisance ,...

Poultry on the Farm [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Poultry on the Farm P ROF . GILBERT , of Ottawa , Canada , in answer to the question : Why is poultry valuable to the farmer ? gives the following reasons : - 1 . Because he ought by their means to convert a great deal of the waste of his farm into money in the shape of eggs and chickens for market .. : 2 , Because with intelligent management they ought to be all-year revenue producers with the exception of perhaps two months during the moulting period . 3 . Because , poultry will yield him a quicker return for his capital invested than any of the other departments of agriculture . 4 . Because the manure from the poultry house will make a valuable compost for use in either a vegetable garden or orchard . The birds themselves , If allowed to run in plum or apple orchards , will € estroy all injurious insect life . 5 . Because while cereals and fruits ca » only be successfully grown in certain sections , poultry can be raised for table use or layers of eggs in all parts of the country...

Green'Food for Winter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

GreenFood for Winter IP any one doubts that fowls need or relish some vegetable in their diet let him turn a flock from . confinement in bare quarters onto a plat of grass ; even though there may be corn in abundance in plain view , they will tumble over that and each other in their haste and eagerness to get a nip of the grass .. Where abundance of range can be had , the cheapest , best way to furnish green stuff is to let the fowls help themselves to what grass . they wish . It is claimed that ten geese require as much pasture as a cow , and two hundred hens will consume or destroy the grass on an acre of ground . At any rate , it is a fact that where poultry is kept in large numbers green stuff must be furnished them ; or the buildings wiUfbe so far apart as to add so much to the labor of caring if or them that the profits will be reduced , or else the poultry will not do their best . In short , the poultry-keeper must supply green vegetable food to his flock , l if confined , or...

Chickens That Pay [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Chickens That Pay MOT being regular stock palsers , we decided to discard pigs altogether , and to give more attention to chickens , We keep no rooster , preferring to buy eggs for setting , thus saving cost of feeding a rooster or two . At present we have Plymouth rocks and white and , brown leghorns , but greatly prefer the Plymouth rocks for an all around good , breed . In the past two years our hens have only been idle a few weeks and that in the month of October of last year . Eggs have sold during that time all the way from twenty to forty cents per dozen . We have decided that the reason our hens do so much better since the pigs are gone , is because the house slops , milk and scraps from the table are just what the chickens most need . Then we feed them plenty of green stuff , for they are kept shut up all spring and summer . We feed carrots , cabbage leaves , chickweed , lettuce and clover-andgive regularly pounded bone , which we bake in the oven to a light brown , arid br...

Muck Lands of Florida - [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Muck Lands of Florida - ¦¦ ¦ • By Jas . W ; Wilson . D UMN & my recent trip , to Florida I was Impressed with the great value . - and possibilities of the large area of saw grass marsh lands of that state ; otherwise known as muck land , which , if reclaims- and put in cultivation would become the richest and most valuable agricultural land in the United States , if Indeed surpassed by anything in the world . These lands have for unknown ages been accumulating decomposed vegetable matter with the rapidity only known in the tropics , which , mixed with more or less animal and shell life , makes nature s own plant food . It is said that the profusion of fruits and vegetables with which Florida s aborigines greeted DeSoto were grown on muck land . ¦ Certainly , their descendants , or such as are left of them in the Everglade fastnesses , are noted for their success in producing agricultural products even with such crude Implements as they possess . We need not go to Florida...

Honey Bees as Pollen Distributors By A . H . Duff . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Honey Bees as Pollen Distributors By A . H . Duff . THE honey bee as a pollen distributer . Is perhaps of greater value to this country than the crop of honey produced . It has of late years occurred to scientists that the honey bee Is of more benefit to distributing pollen than all other sources combined . That we are largely ^ indebted to the honey bee for both quantity and quality of our fine fruits there is but little doubt . Not only fruits but vegetables , and cereals commonly grown on the • farm . Bees are not the only Insects that are valuable in pollenlzing flowers , but If we • note very closely we will find that only on a very small scale compared with the honey bees do other insects accomplish much of this work . The honey bee is a . general pollen gatherer wherever pollen is to be found , and ) thus works an extensive territory . Bees thoroughly canvass several miles i _ diameter in search of both pollen and honey , and are always pollen distributers whether they are en...
