A Look at Florida . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 20 March 1886
A Look at Florida . Florida has become one of the most important sections of our own country because of its salubrious climate , so beneficial to invalids , and its adaptation to the growth of all kinds of semi-tropical productions which can be marketed with dispatch in Northern cities at large profit . The climate , which usually has the softness and equability of the Madeira Islands , occasionally is more like that of Richmond , Va ., and Charleston , S . C . In 1835 orange trees throughout the State were all killed , and in 1868 ice formed as far south as the Manatee river . In 1880 the mercury fell to 143 In 1883 there was a severe cold snap which destroyed large quantities of oranges . These currents of Arctic air occasionally come from a direction which puzzlse the wisest weather prophets . The freeze of the present winter was accompanied by a wind which swept from the southwest—a quarter which usually furnishes balmy breezes . The orange crop had just begun to be gathered , a...

Germs and the Germ Theory The germ theory of disease , or that infectious and . contagious diseases are duo to organisms in the tissues or fluids of the body , and which , in carrying on the processes of their own living functions , produce changes that become apparent as diseases of various kinds , and which may end in death , is now widely accepted . In fact , in certain cases , it is no longer theory . Specific organisms have been seen under the microscope and described . The experiments of Pasteur and other investigators have proved that certain of these when introduced into the body will , without fail , develop the disease with which they have been previously known to be associated . Hence , by analogy , we may infer that many other diseases will be found to be due to the action of germs , though as yet the particular kind may not have been discovered . A scientific writer in the North British Agriculturist , in relation to the germ theory , in classing the majority of these o...

Points of Superiority in Bulb . Ever since Gruenon gave forth hia theory that the value of the tmllasasire of meritorious milk cows was indicated bt ttie escutcheon , the attempts to prove hi theory by experiments have been _„ merou 7 but at the present day we cannot point to a single breeding ; estabhsh2 where the character of . the sire 18 so determined . Yet there should be some outward indications . for enabling the breeder to form an opinion regarding the Sta of males , but so far no theory has torn demonstrated as a fact . True , the soft velvety skin , orange ears , and characteristic form may be accepted _ as assistants , but there is great similarity in animals of that class , and honce no reliable outward marks are known . We are aware that some Jersey breeders wiU claim differently , but the majority of them have long ago abandoned all methods for testing the superiority of a bull , except that of the records of his daughters . It is not so much now as to what tho appeara...
