Salt and Fertilization . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 27 March 1886

Salt and Fertilization . The question of fertilization through specially prepared manures is an important one to the farmer . In their use he must know something of chemistry , or at least its application in practical agriculture . A simple statement of two substances in general use and their solubility in water will serve as a key to some important questions . In this connection it must be remembered that until a substance becomes soluble in water it is inert as a fertilizer . Land plaster ( gypsum ) is soluble in 400 parts of water . Salt is one of the most soluble of substances . Hence gypsum acts slowly , salt quickly . Again , gypsum , because not easily soluble , may continue to act for years ; salt , if not soon taken up , will quickly be leached out by rains . Both gypsum and common salt are cheap Hence their universal use , when transportation for long distances does not cause them to become too expensive . Let us now see where the special province of salt lies in agricultu...

Postage on Seeds . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 27 March 1886

Postage on Seeds . . 1 was very glad to see in the last two issues of the FARM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN that you have the courage to tackle the • Wilson Bill , recently introduced in Congress , whereby the postage on seeds is to he very greatly increased , to the manifest det riment oi the interests of the farmers —the producing class . Why is this bill proposed ? Is it for the purpose of increasing the revenue of the Postoffice iJepartment ? This can not be its object , tor the simple reason that but recently the Department reduced letter postage from 3 to S cents . The impropriety and injustice of relieving the whole people by reducing letter postage and then imposing increased rates on seeds to fall enwteiy on a portion of the people is clearly manifest . There is , therefore , but one r ™ f ? -i to be drawn , and that is that „? blU w intended to benefit the only oner class concerned , and directly contw , with tho operatives of the bill . and mat c - ass jj ^ g eXpress oompan ieS )...

Potatoes , Varieties and Planting . Having had a varied and practical experience in raising potatoes , will give it to the readers of the FABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN . Experience is our best teacher , and it ia with pleasure and profit I like to read in that journal letters from practical farmers who have made a success in farming . First secure a dry field , one on which the water will not stand ; if underdrained so much the better . Plow seven inches deep , and harrow until properly mellow like an ash heap . Be sure to have a good seed bed , free from lumps , as the success of the crop depends much on this . Furrow four inches deep with a corn plow three feet apart both ways . Cut your potatoes with a concave knife , one eye in a piece . If the field has not been heavily manured and plowed under , use the best fertilizer—soluble bone with potash—you can get . Put a tablespoonful in each hill , cover slightly with the foot while fertilizing , then drop two pieces in each hill ; one g...

Chickens Pulling Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 27 March 1886

Chickens Pulling Corn . Is there any preparation to put on seed corn to prevent chickens from pulline It np ? I can keep crows , black birds , etc ., from dotal ? it , but dont know anything to keep chickens off . I keep mine penned up till it sprouts , but my neighbors dont , and that ls where the quarrel begins , you know . J . M . McC . Center Square , Pa . —Tar , one tablespoonful stirred in twenty-seven gallons hot water . Throw in a peek of corn , stirring until each grain is covered with a film . This is -the best remedy . Broom Corn . There is one crop that deserves more attention than it has received , and that is broom corn . The brush is always salable in market , and at times the supply is not equal to the demand . It is cultivated as easily as corn , and is serviceable in several ways . From every 500 pounds of brush it is estimated that double that amount of seed may be secured , which makes excellent feed for stock , and especially for poultry . We do not advise any o...

HORTICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 27 March 1886

HORTICULTURE Cultiyation of Fruit . The most desirable sweet winter apple that I am acquainted with is the Tollman Sweeting ? . It IB of a hard , firm texture , r ^ na until late the following summer , % r 3 often until the gathering of the Ift crop oM is all that can be asked to for eating , for preserving or cooking . The apple is of good size , and they are U 8 & nglL ° hXeetingis one last alluded to , but the size is not so uniform . It is much prized in localities where the soil , climate and other sur- • nimdinsTS are favorable to its cultivation , mt from some cause of which I am ignorant is said to be a failure in this part of the country . The tree is a prolific bearer , in localities favorable to its propagation , t well repays cultivation . In New England it succeeds well and is extensively raised and the fruit highly prized . _ There are other kinds of sweet winter apples that well repay raising , and possess desirable qualities , but where circumstances requ...

Diseases of Live Stock , If farmers will but consider that all diseases must come from some source , they will save themselves money , and soon stamp out all infections . No congressional measures or legislative enactments can prevail against diseases . The work must be done on the farms . It does not imply because tljere is at present no disease in the barnyard that the stock is exempt . Disease may be lurking everywhere , waiting for the most favorable conditions for development . The germs of disease , like the seeds of plants , spring into life only when they have the benefit of food , air , light and warmth . But , like plants , also , if the seeds of disease can find no nourishment they perish . We may not , perhaps , express what disease is , but the illustration and comparison drawn is correct . Plants thrive best according to the soil on which they grow . Some are adapted to one place and some to others . Some take root easily while others slowly come to maturity . There ar...

True Value ofDairy Cows . Until it is conceded that the true value of a cow depends upon how much she can do on a given quantity of food , no rehaWe estimate can be placed upon her . A correspondent of the Jersey BvlleUn m discussing this matter remarks : » cow that makes twenty pounds of butter oftr a ^ erfect preparation , on a , grain ration of ^ wv nuarts , is not half as valuable as a cow miking Sn Pounds with no extra care , and nagriin ration of ten quarts . So far the expression is correct , it a . „ ,, with perfect preparation on three times as much food as another , gives only twice as much in yield as one that has no extra care , it is plain she is not as valuable as the cow giving the lesser quantity ,, and this fact , though not explained by average dairymen , has long been accepted by them as a guide . But what would the cow making fifteen pounds have done with extra care and more food ? That is tho next point for consideration . She may be a better cow than the first ...
