SPREADING MANURE . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 16 April 1896
SPREADING MANURE . As you travel over the country you will see in meadows and grain fields an uneven spotted growth . If you make inquiries you will find the uneven growth has been brought about by the dumping of manure in piles from the wagon . It has laid awhile in the pile and leaked and then spread . The leaked fertility added to increased quantity left in spreading has produced a more luxuriant growth where the piles were deposited . The field presents an unpleasant sight from its irregular growth . It has always been a mystery to me—unless the force of habit in following in the good old way was too strong to be resisted—why people continued this system of dumping manure in piles to be afterwards spread . Surely there is no other easier way than to spread it from the wagon when hauled to the field . It is much easier to shovel and spread from the . smooth wagon bottom than to punch the shovel over the earth with grass roots or stubble to resist its progress . The elevation of t...

NEWS COMMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
NEWS COMMENTS The English Chancellor of the Exchequer , Sir Michael Hicks Bearch , has made his annual report , showing a treasury surplus for the year of £ 4 , 210 , 000 . He estimated the expenditure for the current year * at $ 100 , 047 , 000 . He said that this had been a wonderful year , and one of unexT ampled revenue in spite of the fact that the expenditures had been the largest since the great war . The surplus was the largest ever known , and a larger sum was devoted to , the reduction of the national debt than ever known . He proposes to reduce the surplus by remitting the land tax . As the land- is almost entirely held by the nobility , this proposition does not meet with favor among the . poor where it is styled a landlord s measure / 3 . The gold bugs are keeping everlastingly , at it . A correspondent of ours from the west writes : A trusted friend of mine was just shown a circular from the New York bankers saying : ¦ All sound money delegates to the St . Louis conven...

Herds , Flocks and " Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
Herds , Flocks and Dairy THE NEW ZEALAND KEAS . THE -sheep industry of New Zealand . . has encourtered an unusual and unexpected enemy . The foe is one of peculiar character and history . In no other . country has such a destroyer of flocks . appeared . It has been disastrous to the wool interest of the South Seas , and driven many colonists into other avocations . This destroyer of the flocks is called the New Zealand Kea . It is a bird about the ¦ size of an ordinary hawk ; it has the beek of an eagle and the claws of an owl . It has great muscular strength and is a very avaricious and bold bird . Similar courage is only found in the bee martin , ¦ which puts to flight large birds of prey ; This feathered Samson of New Zealand 3 s a species of parrot . It kills over a quarter of a million of sheep in the islands every year . At one time the bird fed on Vegetable food and did not eat meat . It now preys entirely on the flocks for its nations . It learned to eat mutton by picking th...

Is there any reason for dodging and 1 g . noring a great and vital fact simply because a few prejudiced , misguided l p e o p 1 e have antit quated ideas of what constitutes morality aod modesty ? Reason and honesty say —certainly not . Men and women are attracted to each other because they are men and women and because it is right and necessary that they should be so attracted . The things that make a man attractive are the characteristics caused by his inherent manliness—by the strength which makes him a perfect man . The same is true of woman . There is strong attractiveness in perfect health . There is fascination and mag- . netism in it . A wo- * man cannot be entirely womanly—she cannot be a perfect woman—if she is hot in perfect health . In so much as ^ V - *^ just her rickness affects the organs that make her a woman , in just so much she loses attractiveness . This is the vital part of her health . Xf anything is wrong there , it may result in all manner of ills all over . ...
