Women Who Make the World • Better [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 April 1896
Women Who Make the World • Better THE SUGGESTION OF DR . OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES A TRUTH FOR WOMEN TO PONDER ON Dr . Oliver Wendell Holmes , who was a poet , a wit and doctor all in one , said many wise and witty things which seem to grow wittier and wiser the more you think about them . One of his sayings which has been repeated a good deal , was the the remark that any disease is curable if you take it in time , but some cases have to be taken in hand two hundred years ahead . The serious truth that underlies this funny remark is that everything we do to-day has -an effect upon to-morrow , and upon next week ; and next year ; and next century ; It will not be all the same a hundred years hence , Whatever Is done to-day will have a continually widening effect on future . generations ^ What men , and women do , and what they are |; influences ail \ who come after them ; and more particularly their immediate descendants . When a thoughtful woman considers this fact seriously it brings ...

THE'BEST FARM CROP . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 9 April 1896
THEBEST FARM CROP . TO . the Editor : I have read your , paper , how , for over a year , and have read articles , and good ones , too , on the cultivation of nearly every crop on a farm , and on the care , training and management of all kinds of farm stock , and I have been looking for an article from some one on the management of children . But I have looked in vain . Now , I am going to state as a . fact at ready established , that boys are the best crop raised on a farm , and I know that no one , who has raised any , will dispute me . The best care is none too good for the best crop . But , with boys , it is the quality , more than the quantity , which is to be considered . In a colt we commence to train early , for the younger he is the more readily he learns to obey . Then is it wise to allow the boys to have entirely their own way , when young , and expect them to obey when older ? The right way is to accustom them to • bedience from infancy and the habit will grow with their ...

Herds , Flocks and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 16 April 1896
Herds , Flocks and Dairy FINE BREEDING STOCK . T OHN M . JAMISON in the Farmers JJ Home says : Pure bred stock has an intrinsicvalue above the . common animal of the farm .. that is without pedigree known or unknown ^ and on account of this greater value for use should be worth more money , but there is a limit to the money value that should be placed on these anijnals . The high prices that are claimed to have been paid for animals in sortie herds ^ particularly by some breeders of swine in the northwest , are out of all reason , and he that takes any stock in these claims , or believes 1 them , is lacking in wisdom . We would particularly caution the young breeder against purchasing stock at such rates as these high priced breeders ask . There are two , reasons at least for this caution . It is hardly possible to get the money back again ; and more , paying a high price for breeding stock does not make a man s reputation as a breeder . This is something that money cannot buy , nor...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 16 April 1896
Found dead ! There is something so shocking about sudden death that the mere mention of it wrenches the nerves of sensitive , people . Millions of people pray for deliverance from it . Every Sunday in every Episcopal churcli in the world , these words are said : . From battle , and murder and sudden death , Good t , ord , deliver us . Just why sudden death should be shocking ) and death after lingering disease easy to Dear , would puzzle any one to tell . It would seem that it would be more terribld to see some loved one wasting away , daily becoming weaker—daily slipping toward a death no less certain because it was slow ia corning . Consumption causes more deaths than heart disease—more than cholera—more than yellow fever—more than any other disease the world has ever known . And yet people are careless about it . A man ih danger of sudden death from heart disease can avoid the danger simply by keeping quiet and avoiding excitement . Consumption goes right on with its deadly work ...

HARDY CROSS-BRED HOGS . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 16 April 1896
HARDY CROSS-BRED HOGS . A western swine breeder has been trying 1 experiments in crossing improved breeds with the wild razer-back hog of Florida . He writes to Dr . Salmon of the Department of Agriculture as follows : For years I have entertained the thought that largely the ills with which the hogs of this day are afflicted are attributable to injudicious breeding , and I may , with propriety add , careless handling ; that the arbitrarily breeding to fancy points has- correspondingly bred out the constitution , and thus the hog becomes a ready subject for many diseases . The original Florida hog does not put on fat excessively as do our improved strains ; nor do they grow so large , nor mature quickly . The quality of meat , however , is superb , tickling the appetite of the ; most fastidious pork-eating epicures / being characterized for rich , nutty flavor , with streaks of lean and streaks of fat . This factor ^ of quality is peculiarly manif est in all the crosses I have made ...
