THE SHEAF . READERS will find an addition to . our crop reports on the fourth page of this paper . These returns are from reliable parties on the line of the Northern Pacific road . They cover the entire Northwestern wheat belt , from the Upper Mississippi to the Missouri river . NEW YORK horsemen are wondering over an equine specimen that recently reached there from Ohio .

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
AGRICULTURAL THE STRANGER ON THE SILL . Between the broad fields of wheat and corn Is tlio lovely homo where I was bomj The peach tree leans against the wall , And tho woodbine wanders over all ; There is tlio shaded doorway still—lint a stranger s foot has crossed the sill . There is the barn—and , as of yore , I can smell the hay from the open door . And seo the busy swallows throng . And hear the pewee s mournful song , But the stranger comes , Ol painful proofIlls sheaves are piled to the heated root . There Is thc orchard—the very trees That knew my childhood so well to please , Where I watched the shadowy moments run , Till my life Imbibed more of shade than sun ; The swing from the bough still swings the air , lint the stranger s children are swinging there It bubbles , the shady spring below . With Its bulrush brook where the hazel grow , Twas there I found the calamus root , And watched the minnows poise anil shoot , And heard the robin lave his wingBut the stranger s bucke...
H ORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
H ORTICULTURAL . HUMBUGS IN HORTICULTURE . In our report of the Nurserymen s Association proceedings last week there appeared a brief abstract of the paper by Peter Henderson on the above subject . On reading the address which the author kinflly sends us , in full , we have concluded that it is so good and readable that our readers will thank us for republishing it . It is as follows : . The lite-time experience of any man is too short not to be imposed upon b y many of the hundreds of old varieties of fruits , flowers , or vegetables that are sent out annually under new names . Any well-posted nurseryman can easily detect when a Bartlet pear or a Baldwin apple appears under a new name ; or a florist , making a specialty of roses , knows , as when some years ago the old solfataire rose was sent out under the name of Augusta —claiming it to be hardy in every State in the Union , and sold as a great bargain at $ 5 . 00 a piece—that the vendors thereof were either swindlers or entirely...
THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
THE APIARY . HIVING BEES . A word about swarming . I suppose you let your bees swarm when they get ready , and in many cases this is the best way . In the Spring cut some bushes—spruce , fir , maple , or any kind you , choose—and stick them in the ground in front of the hives , letting them be four or five feet «^ S M ^^^ a ° ^ % you can arrange on these anything resembling a cluster of bees , the swarm that issues will very likely pitch on them , for you J know if two swarms come out together , they generally jine drives . Some , for a decoy , use dead bees , strung and arranged to resemble a chain of bees , and this works well . But you say , Why are you so particular about this ? Why not let them light where they please V Because their alighting place might not please me when I wanted to hive them , and besides , if they settled on a bush I would prop my hives back from the front by two plank wedges on the bottom board to about three inches , then I would pull up the bush , grasp...
ENTOMOLOGICAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
ENTOMOLOGICAL . HESSIAN FLY-COLD ON INSECTS . The question naturally arises whether this pest will ever infest the wheat regions of Western Dakota , Montana , Utah , Colorado , and the Pacific States and Territories . We believe not , though aware that such a statement may bo hazardous . It was originally an inhabitant of Central Southern Europe ; it has become acclimated in the Eastern , Atlantic , and Middle States , in the valley of the upper St . Lawrence , and in the valley of the Mississippi River ; that it can thrive in , the elevated , dry Rocky Mountain plateau regions , withstand the cool nights and dry , hot atmosphere of the far West , seems very doubtful . At least so slowly has it spread westward ; so slight an amount of wheat or straw is transported , all produce of this kind going eastward , that we doubt whether during this century at least it will extend west of Kansas and Minnesota , where it has already had a foothold for several years . A very general impression...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 20 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 20 AYRSHIRE CATTLE . The name Ayrshire indicates thc native region of one ot the most distinctive of tbe dairy breeds of cattle . In the southwest of Scotland , and more especially in the shire or county of Ayr , this breed has been developed . As is the case with most breeds , there is much uncertainty concerning its origin ; and as is the case with most breeds , this question is much more one of curious interest than of practical value . We know the history of the breed for the last fifty years , and in that time it has been largely modified arid improved . What it was two or three hundred years ago , we probably can never very positively learn . Dr . E . 8 . Sturtevant has well said : The Ayrshire breed is undoubtedly the descendants of the original wild breed , modified by civilization , and more particularly by selection ; and the selection has certainly been aided by the variations produced by crossing with other and distinct breeds . Among the breed...

When he wishes to obtain a heifer calf he feeds the cow light , cooling food for some days before putting her to a bull , at the same time he feeds the bull with rich , heat-producing food . When he wishes to obtain a bull calf , he reverses the system . He experimented on eighteen cows of his own and three of his neighbors , all of which bore calves of the sex he desired . He appends certificates of his neighbors as to the truth of his statements . The Bural World says : Now is the time to use tar . No easier , safer or...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 July 1880
THE DAIRY DAIRY BARNS . * As I wish to show dairymen how they may construct warm stables in the cheapest manner and save the buildings they now have , I will first show how they may do this . Suppose now you have a barn 40 x 60 filled with cows in thc upper part . The manure is thrown out at the side . It is a cold barn . Now raise it up eight feet and put under it a concrete wall . This can be done at a cost of ten cents per cubic foot after the barn has been raised . Raise the barn with screws on blockings . Level it carefully . Now set 3 x 4 scantling under the middle of the sill edgewise , place them at such intervals as to furnish support , taking care not to set one so as to interfere with doOrs or windows . Then place shores so as to hold the barn firm . Take out thc blockings , and the standards will be in thc middle of the proposed wall . Make boxes of straight-grained hemlock sixteen feet long , fourteen inches wide . Set up standards outside of sill of barn , at end of pl...
