GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

GARDEN Early Cabbage . To get them early some eare is necessary , as the plants must be started either in a hotbed or cold frame . It is not required that glass be used , provided the hotbed is well covered at night . Muslin makes a good covering , retaining the heat better than glass , and is also much cheaper . Work the soil nicely to a fine powder , BOW the seed broadcast , or in little rows if preferred , covering with a brush-rake or even with the hand . The seed will spring up very soon if good , and the bed should be watered with a sprinkler whenever required , tepid water being preferred . During fine weather the plants may be exposed to the open air by removing tho top of the frame , but they should be covered as soon as the evening comes on , in order not to check their growth . Young cabbage plants are comparatively hardy , but should be treated tenderly until they are large enough for transplanting . In transplanting , always endeavor to take up the whole plant ( roots a...

Thoroughbred Horses as Trot -ters . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

Thoroughbred Horses as Trotters . The thoroughbred horse is not physically constructed for trotting purposes , bis breedim ; having been solely for speed at running , and the constant training and practice of certain habits have demonstrated that such are capable of being made inherent and fixed . As the running gait has been gradually developed by breeding for the form adapted to that gait , and as power and shape have also been necessary accompaniments in fulfilling the expectations of those who have improved the breed , the blending of several special characteristics have tended to more com pletely establish the habits and qualities of the thoroughbred as a breed , rendering his use for purposes other than those peculiar to him a subject of deep consideration . The trotting gait is not as yet an inherent one , but acquired only , although the peculiarity is more easily acquired by the breed known as trotters than by those of any other class . The most perfect specimens fail to de...

There arc over l . > , 000 , 000 cows iu this country , but there is great room for their improvement . The English shire horse dealers and importers iu this country are agitating tlie formation of an American stud book . Germany does us quite an injury by her embargo on our pork , as the hogs shipped abroad from this country bring in greater returns than all other meats put together . The advantage of thoroughbreds over natives may be shown by the statement of a Michigan farmer , whose grade Shorthorn calf weighed 125 pounds when only one day old . At the time he was wcifslietl ...

A Thousand Dollar Cow . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

A Thousand Dollar Cow . There are two elements that go to make up tho value of a cow . One is the productive capacity and its money value ; tho other the pleasure of possession . A cow worth S 100 may give easily a _! . • > % to 50 % profit on her money value . A cow that will produce 200 lbs . of butter , may be worth STiO . One that will produce 300 lbs . is worth nearly twice the same , for the extra product costs little in food and care . A 500 lb . butter oow cannot bo worth in this ratio more than $ 100 . Of course there is the extra value of calves over the production of tlie $ 50 cow . Therefore in our opinion . 1000 cows for actual butter producing value do not exist . If the 500 lb . cow sells for $ 1000 , * S 0 () conies from the pleasure of possession . But the pleasure of possession gives no basis for calculation in ascertaining real value , therefore fancy prices . Perhaps another fact in tho matter is the reward due to the breeder of the thousand dollar cow...

Frowsy Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

Frowsy Wool. Regarding what is termed as frowsy wool, which may often be noticed in large lots and for which no cause is assigned, a solution may be found, says Cotton, Wool and Iron, by suggesting two causes for it, and one or both must be correct, for frowsy wool only comes from the territories of the United States where careless husbandry is allowed. If sheep are allowed to feed on the Western and Southern plains during the heat of the day in summer, the burning sun will dry out the animal oil, the natural lubricant and protector of the fiber, and keep it dried out until decay takes place as far as the oil is dried out, which is not always the entire length of the fiber, as woolmen well know. The dust from the alkali plains of the great West, when it gets into the wool and fixes itself there, will destroy the natural oil in the wool: decay follows, and frowsy wool Is the result. After the natural oil of wool on sheep is destroyed by any cause, the rain penetrates more quickly, no...

Wool and Mutton . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

Wool and Mutton . If tlie breeding of sheep afforded a single avenue of profit only , it would be found that even tinder such circumstances sheep could lie advantageously kept on farms . But sheep are profitable in several ways , says the Farmer s Call . First , from wool ; second , from mutton ; laxi , but not least , from manure . By tlie fluctuation of the markets the gain on the first two may vary . Tlie gain from the last source is not susceptible of change , and so is a constant quan- . lily , whether the price of mutton and wool is high or low . A sheep gives return in these ways lor its keeping , and in baluncliig expenses with tlie income , all of these gains should lie carefully considered . Tlie balance sheet will show whether keeping sheep will pay a profit or not ; and if proper care is taken of them a loss will never happen . The ardor of raising sheep has received a check during the past few yeins , owing to the depression of tlie price of wool . This cheapness is due...

Lambs in April . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

Lambs in April . It is not only necessary to have the lambs early but also to keep them growing . In addition to that which they derive from their dams , a feed of oats , cither whole or ground , will cause them to keep in health and grow rapidly . In fact , there is no grain so well adapted for feeding lo sheep us oats , and they arc very fond of such . One of tlie tlitlteulties iu allowing sheep anil lambs on the same pasture is that the lambs arc liable to all the ills that affect the older animals , such as cough , distemper , and if the . lasiure is wet perhaps the foot-rot may cause trouble . The lambs should not be permitted to remain with tlie flock , as they can be more easily and pi-operly oared for when separated , mid as it is the early lamb that brings tlie highest price , every effort should be made to secure it .

The Foot and Mouth Disease [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884

The Foot and Mouth Disease This English scourge has at last secured a foot hold in this country , and the plain fact is cstah lishcd that while England has taken every pre caution to prevent diseases incidental to American cattle hcing introduced within her own limits she lias inflicted upon us a highly contagious sUnoane which has so far baffled tho skill of hei most eminent veterinary surgeons . The disease has appeared in two localities , Deering , Me ., and Woodson County , Kan . In the former place it is supposed the infected stock contracted the disease from hay , which had been furnished the cattle on their voyage , and appears iu from three to six days . The symptoms , are a rise of tlie temperature of the body to 104 or 107 , followed by smacking of the lips , mucous discharge from the mouth , stoppage of the milk secretions , lameness , and continual moving ot tho feet . Humiliation ceases , eruptions appear on the lips , tongue , and in the interdigital spaces of the feet...
