Wings . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Wings . It was a beautiful summer morning . The sun shone down with royal splendor on the dancing waters , and the breeze came fresh and bracing from the West , while the white ferry-boat , like some huge sea-bird , sped her way to and fro between the shores of New Tork and Jersey City . On board moved the swiftly changing tide of human life , with its countless diversities and strong contrasts—mirthful and sad , earnest and idle , kind and selfish , pure-hearted and evil . In one corner of the deck was a small wagon , whose occupant attracted the attention of all and the sympathy of every true heart . Judging by his face , he might have seen nineteen years , but the mans body was poorly supported by the shrunken limbs , not larger than those of a child . Tet the pale , tired face wore a look of trustful patience , and his clear , honest eyes neither shunned nor courted the pitying glances bent upon him . He was selling books , counting change quickly , and pocketing it with a sligh...

Advice to Toung Sportsmen . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Advice to Toung Sportsmen . In Marvin and his Boy Hunters we flnd the following excellent advice which all sportsmen whether young or old would do well to make a note of : Always bear in mind that it is the muzzle of a gun that is dangerous ; therefore , never allow the muzzle to point toward yourself or on any person . Never put your hand over the muzzle of a gun , nor allow another person to handle your gun while it is loaded . Use a breech-loading gun with rebounding hammers . A muzzle-loading gun is both inconvenient and dangerous to load . Hammerless guns are beautiful and convenient weapons , but they are not fit for boys to use , especially boys who arc just beginning to shoot . If you are hunting in company with others , be careful and courteous , always refraining from shooting at birds that are flushed nearer to your companion than to you , and do not allow your gun , under any circumstances , to point at or in the direction of any human being . Open your gun at the breech...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

A GOOD farmer is always known by the manner ln which he saves his manure . No tanner should confine himself to a single crop only , as the risk is too great . THE Aberdeen-Angus breed secured its share of honors at Kansas City and Chicago . A FEW more months only and the best strawberry will again be given out as an astonlsher . IT IS estimated that a half-blooded Holstein Bhould produce twenty quarts of milk per day . A SCEUB bull in a herd of cows is a hand-bill denoting that something is required . Away with such ! THE publisher is now at the Worlds Fair , as representative from the FABM , FIELD AND STOCBMAN . -WHEN it comes to hardiness , rich milk , beef and utility the Devons are not very far behind the other breeds . GOOD advice is never given too soon . Therefore try working the wheat with the harrow as soon as the season . permits . WE are on a visit to you early this time . Coming on the first and , middle of the month is often for a journal of this class . • AT THB recent...

Just a Word Here . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Just a Word Here . Last year we issued only one oopy of this magazine each month , our subscription price being one dollar , which was a low sum considering the quality of the reading matter . We are determined to maintain the high position we then secured , and endeavor to do so by giving our subscribers the f uU value of their subscription , hence we beoame a semi-monthly , instead of a monthly , and without increasing the subscription price . But we wish to Bay this to our readers , and we put the question in a plain manner . It is this : Can you select another paper of like character , at the price , that gives you as muoh information ? Are not our departments complete and ohoioe ? Can you flnd even an item that is uninteresting ? We think not , and trust our friends will encourage us in our expensive undertaking in endeavoring to please them .

Enterprsie With A Vengeance . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Enterprsie With A Vengeance . Extending our markets and building up industries cannot be done permanently as long as we overlook the fact that we must compete with foreign productions on the merits of that which we ourselves produce . The following little item from the Farm and Ranch Is significant : A grocer in Glascow , Scotland , has been fined heavily for selling adulterated honey , and now no dealer there will touoh American honey . Is there not food for serious thought here ? Just there some enterprising (?) individual , supposing himself a very wise , business (?) man , ships honey to a Glascow grocer , the result being that the honey is adulterated , the poor grocer punished , and suspicion cast upon all honey coming trom this country , whether good or bad . No wonder that we do not extend our trade to some quarters , as long as such practices are allowed , and the only regret is that the adulterator on this side of the ocean escapes , while his victims are suffering for his...

Dairying in Schools . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Dairying in Schools . In the Iowa Agricultural College pupils are obliged to accept dairying in the new school of domestic economy , and it is the beginning of a practice that should be adopted all over the country . The department is ln charge of a lady , and the pupils will be girls , but no exceptions are made . The daughters of the rich and the poor , who enter that department for tuition , must not only derive a theory of the manufacture of butter and cheese , but muBt , with their own hands , produce the articles which they are taught to manufacture . It would be well if our country schools could be so managed , as we are fast drifting to the Kindergarten methods , which are acknowledged as being the best , including , as they do , practical demonstrations of the teachings , thus more forcibly impressing the pupils with ideas that would otherwise be torgotten .

What is the Matter With Wheat ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

What is the Matter With Wheat ? During the past month the price of corn has advanced beyond that of wheat , -which is an oocurrence that seldom happens . The average farmer may perhaps become alarmed and suppose that wheat growing must be entirely abandoned . But , before coming to any conclusions in the matter , let it be considered that during every fall , just as the crops are being harvested , the grain gamblers begin to maneuvre for favorable positions , and in so doing they create fictitious prices and unstable values . It requires but very little judement on the part of an observer to know that , whatever may be done on the grain exchanges , the real value of a bushel of wheat is greater than that of the same quantity of corn unless during periods of great scarcity , but we have not been unfortunate the past season with our corn crop . Before this year has gone by , farmers will discover that they have been made the victims of the corps of grain speculators who are annually p...

No Monopoly in Fat Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

No Monopoly in Fat Stock . While certain breeds are best for beef , yet individuals from breeds not supposed competent for producing animalB able to compete for first honors often secure the blue ribbon over the prize steers of the favored classes . It may be noticed that the sweepstakes prize for best steer ot any breed was awarded to a Hereford in the three-year-olds at Kansas City , while a Shorthorn secured the same honor at Chicago . We have always conceded that the rivalry between the Herefords and Shorthorns was sure to result in benefit to the breeders of both classes , as prompting them to breed up to the most desirable points . that indicate excellence , and , as long as such rivalry is conducted without animosity , the whole country will be improved by the addition of a better quality of beef . Honors , however , are hot easy . While the Hereford and Shorthorn breeders were endeavoring to settle some disputes relating to superiority , and while each class of breeders were...

To the Poor Cowboy . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

To the Poor Cowboy . Somehow or other the people have grown up under the delusion that when the great ranges are settled the cattle industry will cease and beef become a scarce article . In order to hold on to vast areas of the public domain the clique of English lords , who now own nearly the whole of the territories , guarded by an army of hireling cowboys , are educating , through their subsidized newspapers , the people to believe that the retention of the ranges is an absolute necessity . It is about time that this beautiful illusion be dispelled . It rests upon a flimsy foundation , and has no claim in Its favor , whatever . It is a system entirely at variance with a high order of stock-raising , and bases production upon idleness and expense . Cattle-raising on the plains is a great industry , requiring nothing but pasturage , but yet the amount of land neoessary to produce one long-horned cadaverous steer is BUffloient , in a highly cultivated agricultural district , to rais...

Politics and the Country Roads . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Politics and the Country Roads . With all that may be urged in favor of or against the tariff and other national questions , every issue that has been urged sinks into insignificance compared with the importance of properly constructing country roads . Farmers may join in the political battles and urge the election of their favorite candidates till the canvass is over , but when the tumult has ceased and the excitement has pasBed away , they will tranquilly settle down to the ordinary routine of business , with the winter coming on and the roads impassable . When we state that this matter is more important than the issue presented in a heated political contest , we do so for the reason that when the farmer has deposited his ballot he submits the settlement and adjustment of national questions to those whom he has chosen to represent him , for such matters do not present themselves directly to his attention for his own individual action , but the welfare of every farmer in the countr...

A Great National Enterprise . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

A Great National Enterprise . We notice from the dispatches from Washington that the Hennepin Canal and Mississippi River people join hands with New Yorkers and make common cause in favor ot a great through interior water-way by way of the Erie Canal , the great lakes , the Hennepin Canal and the Mississippi Elver . This ls a move worthy of the age .

The Sweepstakes Carcass . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

The Sweepstakes Carcass . Now that it is admitted that tallow ls a prime element in determining the quality of a carcass , let us take a view of the slaughtered animals that were hung up for inspection at the FatStook Show again , and endeavor to derive some information regarding the awards , that may be of value to many who are interested . The first question to be asked ia— Why did the judges award the first prize to the Canadian white steer , Clarence Kirklevington ? It was not because he made the highest gain for his age , as he was equaled in that respect by President , a steer of nearly the same age , and was exceeded by other steers only a few months younger , while President beat him on the value of profitable weight . His fore quarter was heavier than his hind quarter , while Chicago , another steer , dressed heavier in the hind quarter than in the fore quarter , though Chicago was one of the premium animals . In proportion to weight Hoozier beat him badly in the quarters ,...

Ihe Farmers Complaints . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Ihe Farmers Complaints . Every season the farmers are held up as objects of oppression , and every year thousands of them are reported as on the verge ot ruin , with their prospects blasted . They never complain of those things that crouch at the roots of the evils , but look over and above the nearer causes and fasten the crimes upon remote subjects upon which to wreak vengeance for their losses and the misery which has been entailed upon them . Now , the farmer ls affected by the laws of trade , by the elements , by the distance from market and by the fluctuations in currency . He has , in connection with those who follow the same pursuit , the franchise of the ballot . He has a voice in the administration of the Government and in the enactment of its laws . He does not perform all these services directly , Ibut selects the mediums or instruments by whioh they are performed . The executives are creatures of his selection , and every act must undergo his revision and sanction yearl...

Improve the Horse . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

Improve the Horse . Ten years ago , which is but a short time , our farmers had no source of improvement except from the blood of the thoroughbred or trotter . Pedigrees then traced through Lexington . Boston Limoleon and Sir Arohy as the fashionable Btrains in one direction , and Hambletonian , Mambrine and Messenger in the other . Improvement meant speed , either under the saddle or on the road with light vehicles , the consequence being that the average sizes were being reduced , though the structures were being rerefined and the activity increased . While the rage had grown for roadsters it was a well known fact that skill was necessary in order to derive the best results from the animal bred for such purposes . In the meantime the general-purpose horse was unknown , and there was avoid in the lists , to be filled with some animal suitable for other purposes than that of drawing light loads snd traveling at high speed . ThiB gap has been filled . The highspirited , impatient tho...

The Beginning and the End . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 15 January 1885

The Beginning and the End . Lord in peace . On an uninhabited island their camp was pitohed , far inland , and their lambs and kids and calves and poultry grew to flocks and herds , and the people prospered In all things and built no ships , and . the presbyter , Marcellus , raised the mists to hide the Island when any ships hove in sight , and all was then well . The story of Dorcas has a charming setting in exalted sentiment and purity of tone ; the quaint surroundings of yo olden days lend fascination to each page . New York : Fords , Howard & Hulbert . THE A DVENTUBES OF A WIDOW , by Edgar Fawcett , is hardly suoh a sensational ohronicle as the title would lead one to expect . The prologue of the story is laid in Bond street , a quarter of New York City once made famous by the Burdell assassination . Mr . Hamilton Varriok , a gentleman well past fifty , brings into perhaps the most spacious mansion of the street a bride scarcely eighteen . After a short sojourn there...
