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

Bookkeeping on the Farm By Frank Monroe Beverly . B OOKKEEPING on the farm is a part of the busines it seems to me that Is neglected to a great extent . I know some of our farmers who keep mental accounts of the business of the farm , and are therefore enabled to know whether a certain branch of farming will pay , or how to make both ends meet In these branches . These farmers are in the right line , and if they would reduce this matter , to a . systematic method , they would soon experience a better order of things . But . generally speaking , our farmers sadly neglect any attempt , whatever , to ascertain the relative position of the gains and losses on the farm . If they have a surplus at the end , of the year , It is attributed to luck and labor ; but If they have nothing , luck and the season have been bad , and they prepare to go it blindly the next year . Procure a blank book , if you have never tried bookkeeping on the farm , start In with a page thus : . ; - - . ¦ • ITELD A...

Conserve Fertility [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Conserve Fertility By M . Sumner Perkins . T HERE is no land so rich as to excuse the farmer for wasting its fertility or the manure from his live stock . Any man is much blessed , if he is permitted to start with a farm of high fertility , for many are the men whose onerous task is the bringing into productiveness of the sands , the deserts , the marshes and the waste places of the earth . Yes , and they do it until such unpromising tracts of land literally ^ blossom as the rose . • But the farmer , as has Just been said , who can command fine virgin soil at the beginning should estimate correctly the value of his good fortune . All he ; has to do perhaps te to maintain fertility , to prevent his fields from- depreciating in their stocks of plant food . This Is a comparatively simple and easy matter Indeed , provided , the man so blessed does not become possessed of the v . ery erroneous Idea that he Is exempt from universal agricultural law and can waste fertility without sufferin...

Planning the Spring Work [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Planning the Spring Work two in company with his wife or sons to plan a vegetable and fruit garden or at least one of them . • „ _ ¦ , * We wish all our readers could have it impressed upon them that there is no halfacre , no . matter how productive , on their farm that will give better returns than the half-acre devoted to fruits or vegetables , and that the best way to secure the best results is to plan for it now . To help plan successfully we suggest getting at once the catalogues of some of the best seedsmen and dealers in small fruits and nursery stock and lay the plans for the gardens now . When looking over the catalogues for the garden plan , do not shut your eyes or mind when something is seen , that will improve the field crop or embellish the home . Corn and potatoes , oats and wheat are good , so , too , are roses ,-pansies and asters . Order your seed and ; fruit catalogues early and plan for good , paying crops , healthy families and beautiful home surroundings . C HR...

Poison in Wild Cherry leaves [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Poison in Wild Cherry leaves SO many instances have been recorded in which cattle were poisoned by eating the leaves of wild cherry trees or shrubs that the chemists of . the A New Hampshire College Agricultural Experiment Station recently undertook to determine the amount of poison In these leaves . The results are recorded by Messrs . Mors ? and Howard in Bulletin 56 ; In it they say that the poisonous property of all species of cherry leaves is due to hydrocyanic acid , popularly known as prussic acid . This compound does not exist as such-In the , growing leaf , but is derived from / a class of substances called glucosides , of which amygdalin is the type peculiar to the cherry . . This , or a closely allied body , is to be found not only in the leaved and bark but . especially in the stones of cherries , peaches , and : plums * and the seeds of the apple . By the action of moisture and a vegetable ferment called emulsm ,. which exists : In the plant , a complex chemical reactio...

A Neglected Retail Market [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

A Neglected Retail Market By L . Mentor . PROBABLY not more than one-third of what consumers pay for farm produce ever gets to the farmer . The buyer , the railroad , the wholesaler ; the retailer , each take a slice and the slice left for the farmer is often very thin . We all see this and yet we scarcely notice , much less try , to supply the largest retail market In the world lying at our very doors—viz , ourselves and our families ., Now please do not turn up your nose and throw the paper down In disgust when you have read this far . There is more in it than you think . Just turn to the grocer s account in your books—what ! you do not keep any books . Then I take it all back about throwing down the paper . Put it down and do not take either it or anything else until you have made up your mind to keep a careful account of every transaction Talk about money crops ! Why , there is not a . crop , in our fields , not a , herd or drove or flock that will begin to yield such a profit a...

Nebraska Notes [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Nebraska Notes By Wm . Coleman . A LARGE area was sown to wheat IB , the fall . Some sowed 400 . to 600 acres . It is in good condition . I have farmed here seventeen years , and never saw small grain in better shape . The past season some farmers had 6 , 000 to 8 , 000 bushels of wheat . There were thousands of acres where the crop on oneacre would pay for two acres of land . Farmers are putting In their best licks husking corn and will soon be done . With the exception of a few days , the weather has been- nlce-r-real Indian summer— Just the very finest kind of weather for picking corn . The ground is bare and roads dry an * smooth . Stock is doing finely . Many cattle already have the run of the stalk fields . In October and November my cows run on alfalfa and gave as much milk as in clover in June , and the butter was as yellow . Alfalfa is the stuff . • McCook , Neb .. * > •

Relative Profit from Feeding Dairy -Cows [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 12 January 1899

Relative Profit from Feeding DairyCows S OME dairy farmers feed their cows on the supposition that the less feed consumed the greater profit . It Is Interesting In this connection to note the difference in quantity and quality of the : feed given to the poorest five herds and contrast it , with that given the best five herds out of eighty-two herds of Meroden creamery patrons Investigated by the Kan sas Experiment Station during the summer of 1898 . One herd out of the poorest five received no grain during the year ,, three received ear corn as their sole grain ration , and the fifth herd received a little oats and rye in connection with corn meal . For roughness , only one herd out of the five received-any clover , the rest being fed on millet ; prairie hay or . corn fodder . With one exception the best five herds received oats , bran or shorts in connection with the corn fed . and- in most cases the roughness of corn fodder or millet was balanced with alfalfa or clover . The compo...

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

Notes —If you raise poultry for the flesh they produce , keep the large breeds ; A nice plump fowl that dresses out nicely sells well when-the carcass of the old hen that has paid for herself over and over again with the eggs she has given -you will sell hard and eat hard too unless- the good housewife knows her age and ; cooks her accordingly . —Market only eggs thatyou know to : be strictly fresh . If a new nest Is found or if you have failed to gather eggs for a few days do not put these in with the eggs you are going to put on market . Keep them for home use : No merchant likes to have a lot of eggs turn out stale when he has sold them for fresh . It hurts him as well as discommodes or chagrins his customer . —If you have a cold house for your fowls make it warm the first day after you read , this . If you have no other means of doing so than straw or manure banked around it make it warm with one of these . Cover it all over , if need . be , leaving only , space for avdoor on th...

Sheldon sNewspaper The Rev . Chas . M . Sheldon s books , now so universally read , make it plain that that writer s hopes of the regeneration of the world lie . in getting individuals more and more to do their daily tasks on Christian principles no matter what the sacrifice involved . In the best known of his books , In His Steps , he clearly looks to the newspaper , carried on upon Christian principles , as largely the hope of the coming kingdom . . In looking about him for a newspaper upon his model , he seems to have hit on the Montreal Witness , to which he has addressed a letter , part of which we quote : I have read the Witness with much Interest . I cannot saythat I . know of any other daily paper in ; the United States that is conducted on , such high Christian principles . I wish I did , for if ever we-needed such a paper in our country we need it now . ¦ ; .,,. .
