AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
AGRICULTURAL . MODEL FARMS AND THEIR METHODS . This is the title of a book edited by Mr . S . T . K . Prime , to which we have before alluded , and from the advance sheets ** of which we have once or twice made extracts . The book is made up of contributions from a hundred or more of prominent Western farmers , each of whom , in his own way , tells the story of his methods with the particular branches of farming in which he is or has been engaged . The table of contents gives a pretty accurate idea of the character of the book . We select from this at random , in order that our readers may have a good idea of the work : CHAS . M . CULBEBTSON , Newman , 111 . —Stock farm , buildings , fields ; Hereford cattle how and when to breed ; rearing calves and bulls ; portable feed racks for cattle . N . C . GILBEBT , Geneseo , Ills . —No field un der cultivation more than five years ; fifty bushels of corn and ten tons of hay per acre ; moveable self feeder for stock ; merino sheep ; tile dr...
THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
THE POULTRY YARD . DIARRHEA IN FOWLS . Recent scientific researches have proved that this disease is caused by a microscopic organism which is developed in the intestines , passes into the blood , and multiplies itself there with extraordinary rapidity . The parasite is ejected from the bowels , and may be taken by birds who pick about among the dung-heap or eat the grains that have been soiled by contact with it . If a fowl dies , and there is any cause to fear that diarrhoea has caused its death , the birds should be immediately taken out of the poutry-yard and isolated . The poultry-yard and poultry-house should be well cleansed , the dung removed , and the walls , perches , and soil washed with plenty of water . The water used should contain five grammes per litre of sulphuric acid , and a stiff broom or brush should be employed . When ten days have passed without a death occurring , thc birds need no longer remain isolated , excepting those which show signs of prostration , dep...
HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
HORTICULTURAL . OSIER WILLOW CULTURE . It may be as well to remove an impression too generally entertained that , because a willow will grow almost anywhere , and is a moisture-loving plant , the site for an osiery plantation , the soil and drainage , are secondary considerations . As regards the site , it is by no means necessary that it should be low or near water ; gome of the best and most paying patches of planting we have seen were on well drained upland sites . There are , however , on many a farm or holding , patches of low-lying , marshy , or wet spots which can not be properly drained or advantageously cropped , by reason of being occasionally inundated , where willows might be profitably grown , provided that the removal of superfluous water and moisture were cared for by means of intervening furrows and water-cuts , which should invariably take the direction calculated to allow the water to pass off freely . Where there is facility for this , we believe the occasional fl...
THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
THE APIARY . SWARMING , AND HARVESTING THE HONEY . When once the apiary is fully established the next care that comes after swarming is the honey harvest . In view of this it is often advisable to give additional room at the top of the hive , and sometimes even below the hive when the season happens to be exceptionally good . The bees will often fill a cap or super of beautiful honeycomb before they swarm . Therefore be on the look-out , and when the season is good , the weather fine , and the bees show signs of want oi room by hanging ever so little outside of the hive entrance , lose no time . Open the hole at the top and let them into the super . You must cover this well over , so as both to keep in the warmth and to protect them from a too hot sun as from wet . If their numbers still increase , and they hang out again before swarming , they must have yet more room given to them ; for bees should never be allowed to remain idle , many pounds of honey are often lost to the beekeep...

MONEY AND COMMERCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
MONEY AND COMMERCE . FINANCE , TUESDAY EVBNINO .-Tunel , 1880 The opening of the month and the settlements incidental thereto has naturally called out a better demand at the banks tor hums , but the applications were mainly of a teuipolary character to enable operators on Change to tide over until they can make deliveries of property sold . Hence the requests for loans were not of a character that hankers like to see at this season , when they are anxious to place their funds where they will remain until wanted for moving tbe new crops .

AMERICAN FARM ANiMALS .-NO . 17 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANiMALS .-NO . 17 . MAKING FULL USB OF THE MACHINE . To give a satisfactory profit , the farm animal , like any other farm machine , must be made use of . If any machine is used but a small part of the time , little profit comes from its possession . A farmer with a half dozen acres of grass to cut can not afford to buy a mowing machine for this little work , especially if the machine be kept in operation without accomplishing any good result , except at intervals , loss will surely come instead of proflt . To keep a steam engine constantly running but without having it do work more than half the time would be anything but economical management . The farm animal is a machine in which money or labor has been invested ; hence it is desirable to have returns as constantly as possible . Not only so , but it is a machine which must be constantly kept in operation , at cost for food—corresponding to the fuel supplied a steam engine—hence there is a double reason for seeking ...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
THE DAIRY . THE REARING OF CALVES . It may be laid down as a flrst proposition that a dairy farmer should raise at least as many heifer calves as are required to fill up the vacancies that occur year by year in his herd of dairy cows , and it is all the better if he has a few more than he wants for that purpose . Some people contend that three-year-old-in-calf heifers can be bought for less money than they can be raised for , counting in the risk ; this however depends entirely on the facilities a man has for keeping young cattle so as not to interfere with his milk pastures . On all mixed farms it is commonly a simple matter enough to Summer and Winter young cattle so cheaply that it is better to raise them than to buy others for the dairy herd , and many farmers find it to their advantage to raise them for sale when on note , or to fatten for the butcher . Judiciously carried out rearing pays very well , and heifers raised on the farm are commonly found more suitable to it in afte...

LIGHTNING RODS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 June 1880
LIGHTNING RODS In our issue of May 20 , we published a letter from an esteemed correspondent in regard to the protection or otherwise afforded by lightning rods . His view of the case was decidedly adverse to the lightning rods . We have since met a gentleman connected with the insurance business , whose opportunities in this direction have been very extensive , who declares himself also opposed to lightning rods . He regards them as no protection , and justly observes that if they are no protection they must be a detriment . It is unfortunate that so few statistics exist in regard to the proportion of buildings with and without lightning rods , * which are struck by lightning . The subject is one of infinite importance , and We trust some valuable facts may be elicited on this question by the forthcoming census . Again , it would be well if a law should pass attaching a severe penalty to the erection on any building of a lightning rod not erected in conformity with the requirements...
