Winter Spraying ; for Pear Insects [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
Winter Spraying ; for Pear Insects TWO of the most common arid injurious insect pests of trie pear tree may be largely controlled by a proper spraying -while the trees are dormant during the winter . PEAR-LB AF BLISTER MITE . ONE of theseis the pear-leaf blister mite . The reddish blisters which appear on trie leaves in spring and :-l 4 ter . on turnbrown and become thick and corky ; -doi-not seem to be a serious injury to the , ta ; e $ other than in-causing the foliage -to ar 6 p much more quickly than usual , in the fall ; But when the . disease is abundant , the foliage will often drop in midsummer , especially upon young tr ^ es or those in . ther . nur . eery . It is upon these that the Injury is most apparent , preventing a good , growth and , when occurring year after year , quite seriously stunting the tree . It must always be remembered that a tree s leaves are as necessary to its growth as are the lungs to a person , and the moment it is deprived of them , just that soon ...

Every market gardener should riave an experiment / plat in connection witri -trie market garden , that he may first experiment with new methods of culture , or test new varieties of fruits and vegetables , before he uses them extensively . Such an experiment plat has proved very valuable to . me , and one of the good things whicri ; is the result of several years of experimenting-on a small plat , ia my new method of celery culture . I will describe it : briefly as follows : I first make the soil very rich , usinglOO . tons or more stable manure per acre ; then , when the soil is-pulverized very fine , I set early in May , plants of the White Plume and follows : two rows are set one foot apart , with the plants six inches apart in the row . then I leave a space of eighteen inches and set two more rows in the same way , thus maki...

A Winter Crop in the Cellar [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
A Winter Crop in the Cellar Is there another edible , besides the mushroom , that , can- be growm in the dark ? yes , answers a Rural New Yorker correspondent , and so cheaply and profitably grown that every farmer and gardener in the land may not only have a supply for home use , but market also . Growing pieplant in winter has passed the experimental stage and become a profitable industry in this section at least . Thousands of dollars are paid the gardeners here each winter for the product , whicri is bought at high prices , both for home consumption and for shipment . Any cellar or outbuilding which can be made absolutely frost and light proof will answer the purpose . There is no objection to the riouse cellar , as no manure and very little water are required , so no odor or dampness will arise . Trie labor of growing is so little and the profits so large that the most greedy ought to be satisfied with the results . »«»

* Up-to-Date Hen Story [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
* Up-to-Date Hen Story A CORRESPONDENT of the Springfield , Mass ., Republican , vouches for the truthfulness of the following : • My sister lived on a farm in Woodbury , Ct ., and raised a great many fowls . One hen turkey was very unfortunate with her broods , losing them by talcing them into the tall grass , some distance . away . She was an excellent mother , but lacked judgment . She mourned sincerely for them and for comfort would coax the broods of the other turkeys and hens to follow her . One morning , about four oclock my sister was awakened by a pecking at her face . Springing up , she found a hen on ; the bed . It was the mother of a young brood of chickens . She . pondered a moment and then said to her husband : I believe that » ld turkev is calling Biddys chickens away . Going to the door , the hen in advance , there , indeed , was the childless fowl clucking to the chickens , which were toddling along after her . The mother hen had given the alarm , but the mystery wa...
Southern Farmer [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 19 January 1899
Southern Farmer By Little Yankee .. , G LAD to see the southern farmer waking up , for they are forty years behind time ; - and something must be done now . T Why-not-try the Irish potato in the cotton belt of Louisiana ? Our southern railroad men think that is the cyop for that section , as they have made inquifcy . all along the . lines , and find the potato - crop short in many places , and the present crop will be exhausted long before the North ¦ can produce themf . That means big money for some one , but not for ns here in the river belt , for it is difficult to find high land enough for : what , are needed at home , and a garden , spot on some farms . The potato will make here , in from ten to fifteen days earlier , , from plantings mad / 3 at the same time , ih the north . The Peerless is the potato for . the south . • In selling , make two grades . The larger ones will command the higher price , while if all sold together , you only get the price for common potatoes .
