AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

AGRICULTURAL THE CANE GROWERS . The Mississippi Valley Cane Growers Association met according to call at St . Louis , Dec . 3 . Tbe attendance was quite large , growers and manufacturers being present from several northern States and from Tenn . The secretary reported a wide spread interest infhe subject as evinced from correspondence from thirty-five States and Territories during the year . In all the northern States the cane , especially of the amber variety , thrives well , and yields well under favorable circumstances . A communication from Prof . Stewart , of Pa ., who last year claimed that he had discovered a solution whose use would insure the crystalization of the juices of the Northern cane and of corn was read . He reiterated his claims , but a discussion by those who had experimented with the solution the past season , brought out the fact of its almost utter uselessness in actual practice . But little new knowledge concerning methods of culture was developed . Regarding...

H ORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

H ORTICULTURAL ILLINOIS STATE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY . The twenty-fourth annual meeting of this , Society was entirely satisfactory to the offl .. cers and members , both in respect to tlie number in attendance and the excellence of the papers read and discussions held . The reports of the Secretary and Treasurer showed that the receipts for the year were in excess of the expenditures . The exhibition of winter apples , for which the Society offered liberal premiums , was highly creditable to the exhibitors , though the quality of the fruits , owing to the drouth of Summer and the extreme heat of the early part of October , was not equal to that of some previous years . The following awards were made : A . C . Hammond , of Warsaw , SweepstakeB premium of $ 25 . 00 , for largest and best collection ; also 1 st premium on collection of seedling apples and best peck of Fulton ; also second premium on pecks of Bawles Janet , Jonathan , Bed Canada and Northern Spy .

IN THE GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

IN THE GARDEN No . 1 . The writer of these articles starts out with the intention of making them practical , and therefore of benefit to those who , like himself , are interested in the care of a family garden , In writing them he will ¦ narrate his own experience . He makes no claim to scientific attainments ; he kept his eyes open , he read reliable and common , sense periodicals and books , in which practical men told of their failures and successes in this neglected department of farm-life , and , aided by these suggestions , he went to work and experimented for himself . He does not claim that his is the best way , or that the largest results were secured by his method ; but he thinks that a record of his experience may possibly be of benefit to others , and he believes that others can go and do likewise , if they have a desire to do so , without spending more money than they feel they can afford . Just here it may be said that most persons who have never owned or worked a gard...

PRUNING FOREST TREES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

PRUNING FOREST TREES A writer in the London Journal of Horticulture thus foots up the many valuable results of pruning forest trees : 1 . Pruning , though if may lessen the actual produce of the wood , increases the more valuable dimensions of the timber , by directing the energies of the roots , etc ., to its formation . 2 . It enables us to produce the largest crop of timber upon the smallest area . 3 . It lessens the effects of shade , both upon the underwood and upon other crops . 4 . By admitting a freer and better circulation of air among the boles it checks the growth of mosses and lichens . 5 . It gives greater lengths to the trunks , and produces timber of a better quality aud of a cleauer grain . ( J . The judicious prun ing of side-branches prevents stag-headed-uess , with its attendant evil of decay extending down the trunk . 7 . Pruning prevents accidents from the browsing of cattle , from winds aud falls of snow , as well as from the excessive weight of foliage . 8 . T...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL SOME FACTS ABOUT THE COTTON WORM . BY PBOF . c . V . BILEY . As many erroneous notions prevail regarding this insect , it has occurred to me that a brief statement of facts about such a notorious pest , taken from a forthcoming bulletin to be issued by the U . S . Entomological Commission , would interest tho readers of the REVIEW . The cotton worm , like most other insects , and all belonging to its order and family , exists in four distinct states , which differ much from each other . They are , 1 st . The egg . 2 d . The larva , or worm . 3 d . The chrysalis . 4 th . The imago , or moth . The worm must hatch from an egg deposited by the female moth . All theories to the contrary , such as its supposed spontaneous development from the plant , or its origin from tlie cotton seed , are , therefore , utterly without foundation . They need emphatic denial here , because of their prevalence , not only among the negroes and the more ignorant , but among intelligent men unf...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

THE APIARY [ THE BEE-MOTH . This insect ( Gallerea cereana , Fabr . ) belongs to the Lepidopterous family Tineidse , very troublesome and destructive in the hives of the honey bee . The perfect form is a winged moth of a dusky gray color measuringfromfive-eighths to three-quarters of an inch in length from the head to the tip of the closed wings , the wings expanding from one inch and one-tenth to one inch and four-tenths . The female is larger than the male . There are two broodsyearly . The moths of the first brood appear late in April or early in May ; those of the second are most abundant in August ; but they may be found during the greater part of the Summer , as others come to perfection between and after the above periods . They remain quiet during the day , unless disturbed , on the sides or in the crevices of the hive , and in the evening , when the bees are at rest , hover round the hive till they find the door , then enter and lay their eggs . Those that are prevented in ...

COMMERCIAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

COMMERCIAL CHICAGO COMMERCE-OUR YEARLY REVIEW . The year just closing will ever be memorable in the history of the whole country as the period which saw the dark cloud of business depression which had hung over us since 1873 dispelled , and the bright sun of prosperity again blessing us with its golden rays . It will be especially remembered by the people of Chicago as a year of the most unprecedented activity in all branches of business . A review of the business and statistical situation shows a gratifying gain in every department of commerce and industry . The banks show unprecedented gains in all their departments of business , the most marked improvement being in their deposit lines , which have increased nearly twenty millions of dollars . This gain is all the more remarkable from the fact that the great activity in business has largely increased the employment of money at highly remunerative rates , whereas the stagnation that prevailed at the close of last year was such that...

QUERIES AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

QUERIES AND ANSWERS QOEur—Scab in sheep . A . E . B ., Lincoln , Neb ., asks , Please let me know what is the difference between scab in sheep and a similar disease known here as sheep pox , and described by some authors as variola-ovina ? ANSWER . —Scab in sl __ -p is a disease which is caused by the presence of a skin parasite ( acari ) . It is a local disease , and although it produces loss of condition in the animal aflected , it does not otherwise deteriorate the quality of the flesh . On the other hand , Variola-ovina is a constitutional disease , highly infectious , very destructive to life , and renders the _ flesh of the animal unfit for food .

THE CHICAGO MARKETS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

THE CHICAGO MARKETS WKEKI / T REVIEW MONDAY ETCHING , DEC . 29 TH . Business during the week has been largely interrupted by the Christmas festivities and preparations for the inauguration of the new year , but in spite of these adverse circumstances the markets have shown a good degree of activity , and during the greater part of the week prices for nearly all leading articles have exhibited a strong upward tendency , and the belief that prices for both grain and provisions will reach a higher range at an early day is steadily gaining ground . It is well known that a very large portion of the wheat at the chief points of accumulation in this country is owned by a combination of capitalists , who expect to hold it for an advance . Corn , Oats , Hye , and Barley , have been steady . Hogs are quiet , but trade light , owing to the labor troubles at the packing-houses , but these troubles are said to be settled , and the indications are favorable for a more satisfactory trade the comin...

A STRICTLY FARMERS' COMPANY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

A STRICTLY FARMERS COMPANY The great Continental Insurance Company of New York , with its great capital and targe means , concluded a few years ago to utilize Its large experience and classify its business in such a manner as to protect the patrouB whose property was located outside and out ot reach ot large cities . The Company was old and experienced , and by prudent management of its expenses , had kept a part of its yearly earnings in place of dividing it yearly , and thus had accumulated a fund which it resolved should be devoted to absolutely protecting outside risks , no matter what disaster should happen through burning cities . It is true its insurance heretofore was of the safer sort , and it always had avoided special hazards to a great degree , and never had imperiled its existence by insuring largely in cities , yet for all that it concluded to set apart under the provisions ot the safety fund law of New Tork a part of its earnings every year for tbe accumulation of a f...

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK IMPROVED LIVE STOCK . As we remarked in a recent issue , live stock on the farm are but so many miniature manufactories of the products of the soil into human food . Let us follow the subject a little further and note the importance of raising only the most improved breeds of animals for the object in view . What would be thought of a man who invested his money and gave his time in any class of manufacture when he had the full knowledge beforehand that the machinery he was putting into operation was of the poorest quality and that the product would be of an inferior grade and would only flnd a market at a low price . Yet these goods , on account of the worthlessness of the machinery to make the most out of the material used , were costing him fully as much as the produce of his rival in trade , who uses first-class machinary . and produces an article of better quality which realizes a ready sale at a higher price . Failure would be sure to follow , and he would h...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

THE DAIRY DAIRY MEETINGS . Among the notable events in the dairy world during the month of December were the International Show of Dairy Products in New York City and the meeting of the Illinois Dairymens Association , at Marengo , 111 . Both were well attended and demonstrated a marked revival in the dairy interests of the country . At the Illinois meeting it was the generally expressed opinion that the low prices which of late have prevailed have been principally caused by the large quantities ot inferior product that has been put upon the market , especially in . the hottest por . tions of the year . Dairymen have skimmed too much before making the milk into cheese . Still Chicago dealers hold that really good skimmed cheese could be sold at profitable rates if put upon the market at the proper time . The good work of the Elgin Board of Trade was exhibited by a number . It was shown that since its organization the total sales at Elgin have reached the round sum of $ 4 , 167 , 649...

VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 3 January 1880

VETERINARY CATARRHAL INFLUENZA OR INFLUENZA PROPER . If we were asked to name one condition peculiar to this . disease and sufficient to distinguish it from diseases in other respectbearing some resemblance to it , we would say that condition is unusual and peculiar weakness . We believe those who understand influenza best will all agree that , supposing there are ten or twenty symptoms , weakness is one of the first , most constant , longest enduring , aud most difficult to overcome of them all . This weakness , too , appears as the associated effect of a state of system to which we apply the term typhoid or sinking fever , and influenza becomes difficult to manage in proportion as tlie typhoid symptoms predominate . This disease seems most prevalent among young horses , but appears to affect animals of all ages , especially the heavier class of draught horses . This peculiarity is not easy of explanation , but it may be suggested that heavy draught horses are often less carefully ...
