MONEY AND COMMERCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
MONEY AND COMMERCE . MONEY MARKET . TUB 8 DAT EVBKIHO . July 6 . 1880 . The banks report n small demand for loans from desirable borrowers , and the market is easy at 5 @ 8 per cent for good business paper , 3 @ 4 percent . on Government bonds , and t &gt;@ 8 on real estate paper . The Chicago banks hold nearly $ 60 , 000 , 000 in deposits , showing thai money is more plenty than the opportunity of using it to advantage . New York Exchange is plenty , with sales between bankers at 26 ( 8 ) 50 c discount per $ 1000 , and $ 1 . 00 discount for bills drawn against shipments . Sterling Exchange is lower at 48 @ 48 c for shippers 00 days bills on London . Tne heavy decline in these bills is due to the large shipments of grain , provisions , cotton and other articles to Europe , and it now looks as though the return of gold to Europe , which has been so much dreaded , will be very small , and that our money market will remain easy for the remainder of the year .

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —NO 21 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —NO 21 . TOLLED ANGUS AND GALLOWAY CATTLE . Two of the Scotch beef breeds of cattle have been introduced into the United States—the Angus , or Aberdeen , and the Galloway . These breeds resemble each other in being polled or hornless , in being black in color , and in a general way , in form , size and quality . Each is of more than ordinary merit for beef production , and below , rather than above medium quality , as milk producers . Neither has been introduced in large numbers into any part of the United States , but each breed has found warm friends wherever introduced . The writer believes thay ^^^ vaniages ot no-horned cattle overthosewith horns has often been over stated , but it can not be questioned that the absence of horns is an advantage . The cattle are less apt to injure each other in yards or when in cars ; and there is slightly less danger to man , although the choice between being gored or butted by a vicious bull is not very great . For cross...
QUERIES AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
QUERIES AND ANSWERS QUERY : BLACK LEG IN CATTLE—W . H . L , Seward , Neb ., writes : If you have in any copy of the FARMERS REVIEW , the cause and cure of the disease known as the Black Leg in cattle , please send me a copy . If not what is the title of a book which treats of this disease , and where is it to be had , the price , etc . ANSWER : We have not very recently discussed this important subject through the columns of the FARMERS REVIEW , and as it is a malady which at certain seasons of the year causes great devastation and serious losses , among the fine herds of the West , we possibly can not select a subject that would be likely to prove more interesting to agriculturists and raisers of stock . Carbuncular erysipelas , commonly known as Black Leg , Black Quarter , etc ., is an endemic disease , which means that it arises from causes within the animal . It is not contagious , but is liable to be communicated from one animal to another by inoculation through the blood , or ...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
THE DAIRY A CO-OPERATIVE BUTFER FACTORY . The butter agitation has resulted in the opening of the County Watert ord Cooperative Dairy Society . Premises were obtained outside Dungannon , and the buttermaking commenced on the 17 th ult . in well-ventilated apartments , 32 % feet by 24 i ^ feet . Six Holstein churns have been erected on the ground , and these , with Abloom s butter-workers , are all driven simultaneously by a simple four-horse horizontal engine . For the present it is proposed to limit the churning to these six churns . Ten churnings can be easily made from each daily , each making on an average about 30 lbs . of butter at the same time , the total produce for the dajr thus amounting to 3 , 000 lbs . The mode in which the business is being carried out , which is purely cooperative , is as follows : Some 30 persons have already agreed to send in their cream daily . Sweet and high-class butter being the object , none is received older than twenty-four hours . The cream ...
THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
THE APIARY . CONSTRUCTING BEE-HIVES . The following is an extract from a paper read before the Central Kentucky BeeKeepers Association by C . I . Mush : Many arguments have been made in our country , as well as in the old world , about the uniformity of bee-hives . Much has been said in favor of deep frames , and as much in favor of shallow ones , and the most sanguine of our friends are convinced by this time ofthe impossibility of bringing about the universal use of a standard bee-hive . If a standard hive could be adopted , and standard surplus boxes , much vexation and disappointment would be avoided . When we observe the manner in which a strong colony , hived in a common box-hive , and during a good yield of honey , builds its combs , we find that tiie hive is filled almost exclusively with worker combs , which are apart from center to center just about one and one-half inches , or a little less , witli an open space of about three-eighths of an inch between every two combs . ...

CONVENIENT REMITTANCES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
CONVENIENT REMITTANCES An important innovation in the British Post Office suggests the advisability of its earnest consideration with a view to its introduction , in a modified form , perhaps , into this country . In future , in England , money orders made payable by the sender to the order of any one he pleases , and at any post office indicated by him on the order , are to be issued at all post offices in denominations of from one shilling , two shillings and sixpence , and so on until the denomination of pounds is reached . These orders are to be sold at a trifling cost , from two to ten cents , according to amounts , and certainly some similar arrangement , could be adopted here , embracing a large proportion , if not all , of the post offices . The extension of the money order system is very much needed , especially since the withdrawal from circulation of fractional currency . Moreover , the remittance of small sums of a few dollars or fractions of dollars has always been too ...

EXPORTS OF GRAIN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
EXPORTS OF GRAIN The exports of grain in flour and meal from the United States -to foreign countries from September 1 , 1879 , to June 26 , 1880 , were equivalent to 227 , 000 , 000 bushels . Estimating the exports for the next two months on the same basis , would give 272 , 000 , 000 bushels for the crop year ending August 31 , 1880 . The present crop prospects in England and some of the continental countries are such as to justify the opinion that their importations of foreign grain during the next twelve months will fall off . There are , however , substantial reasons for believing that the bulk of our surplus grain will be needed by for eign consumers , as the average imports of wheat into the United Kingdom aggregate 100 , 000 , 000 bushels . And as it is conceded that the crops in the wheat exporting sections of Kussia and Germany are very short , the quota that England usually draws from those sections must be furnished by the United States . Nor must we lose sight of the fac...
A FRENCH AGRICULTURIST IN AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
A FRENCH AGRICULTURIST IN AMERICA A few months ago England had , in this country , two agricultural commissioners charged with the duty of investi gating and reporting upon the agricultural resources of the United States and Canada . Their report has never been made public , not even , so far as we can learn , for the benefit of the suffering British agriculturist , on whose behalf the commission was instituted , and we presume that it is going through a sort of digestive process in some Downing street circumlocution office . This week a distinguished Frenchman , Mons . de Savignon , who has been serving as a commissioner or delegate of the French Ministry of Agriculture in Australia and this country , sails from New York for France . The principal objects of this gentleman s investigations have been in Australia , the wool and cattle interests ; and in this country , vine culture and cattle . While in CaliforniaMons . de Savignon made a thorough and careful study of the native Amer...
A MONSTER MONOPOLY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
A MONSTER MONOPOLY Of all the monopolies that have sprung into existence , and fastened themselves on the industrial interests of the country with the same tenacity that the devil fish does on its prey , none have grown so rapidly or exerted a more baneful influence than the corporation known as the Standard Oil Company . This concern commenced operations some fifteen years ago , with a nominal capital of $ 100 , 000 . Yet such has been its growth that it is now said to have an actual capital of over $ 22 , 000 , 000 . From the first day of its existence its course has been one of aggression . Unwilling to meet rival companies in honorable competition , it has , by bribery and dividing with railroad officials , obtained rates for transportation for oils that rendered it impossible for other oil companies to sell their products in the same markets without submitting to a ruinous loss . By this means it has been able to crush out all opposition , and its ruinous effects on the busines...

RAILROAD ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
RAILROAD ITEMS THE railroad and warehouse commissioners held their regular monthly meeting at Springfield on Tuesday , all the members being present Mr . Oberly offered a resolution directing that a schedule of rates be prepared for the Wabash , St . Louis and Pacific Railroad , whicli was adopted .

INSURANCE ITEMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 July 1880
INSURANCE ITEMS . We notice that the Western Farm Journal , Des Moines , Iowa , ( which by the way has now resumed its old name of The Iowa Homesteader ) , reproduces , in a recent issue , the editorial remarks of the Western Rural , of this city , on the comparative merits of stock and mutual insurance companies , quoted in the FABMEBS REVIEW of June 24 th nit The truth is that those who , having before them the results of an experience of many years in this branch of business , give the subject careful investigation , will inevitably come to the same conclusion , namely , that permanent and undoubted security is to be found in a far greater degree in a sound and reliable stock insurance company , having an ample capital and managed by men who have made a life study of the science ot insurance , than in any mutual township or county organization composed of a number ot men wiio agree to pay each one a certain proportion of any loss which may occur to any one of their number The pri...
