Scrofula Is one of the most fatal scourges which afflict mankind . It is often inherited , but may be the result of improper vaccination , mercurial poisoning , uncleanliuess , and various other causes . Chronic Soivs , Ulcers , Abscesses , Cancerous Humors , and , in some cases , Emaciation , anil Omsumption , result from a scrofulous condition of the blood . This disease can be cured by the use of Ayer s Sarsaparilla . I inherited a scrofulous condition of the blood , which caused a derangement of my whole system . After taking less than four bottles of Ayer s Sarsaparilla I am Entirely Cured and , for the past year , have not found it necessarv to use any medicine whatever . 1 am now in better health , and stronger , than ever before . —O .

Wheat in England and Chicago . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
Wheat in England and Chicago . The first week in March , wheat , in England , touched the lowest price of the century . The average price for the week in 187 principal towns in England and Wales was only 29 shillings per quarter of eight imperial bushels . The average of the corresponding week for the last-ten years is 41 i shillings , the highest of the period 514 shillings , being that for the corresponding week in 1877 . The imperial bushel averages sixty-two pounds , so that 29 shillings per quarter is equal to only 84 J cents per bushel of sixty pounds . Our quotations for the first week in March were : Winter wheat , No . 2 red , 90 cents ; spring wheat , No . 2 , 80 J @ 80 | cents . Hence it will be seen that at the corresponding date , winter wheat was 5 | cents higher , and spring wheat No . 2 , only 3 J cents per bushel lower than in England .
Heredity and Disease , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
Heredity and Disease , It is now generally admitted that certain diseases , as scrofula , tuberculosis , etc ., may be transmitted from generation to generation . It is also probable that disease , once an animal may be tainted therewith , will be more surely transmitted than qualities of value , for some diseases seem to be cumulative in the system to a greater degree than normal qualities . Hence the breeder cannot be too careful in the selection of the breeding animals , and this is especially true of sires . A bull holding any hereditary disease may imbue the progeny of a whole herd . A cow holding the taint of disease will only transmit it to her offspring . In this connection the matter of perfect health in the sire is of fully as much importance in the breeding of grades as in his use on thoroughbreds , for once the taint is in the progeny it will go on . Another point of value in the breeding of grades is , it is not necessary to be so particular in the selection of the sire...

Capitalized Generalship . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
Capitalized Generalship . If sydicates or other corporations who fling masses of money in a breach , just as a general throws regiments against an enemy , are allowed to carry their points through lobbies in our State and National Legislatures ; if manufacturers , to hold their profits largely , put up prices , who pays for all ? The farmer ! Is the manufacturer to blame ? No ! He must make his profits because he has increased costs to meet . The blame lies with the greed of speculative capital , which seeks to get large returns for little . If farmers do not organize for self protection they must continue to suffer , and if they will not organize they must expect to suffer . Why should they not organize , first through co-operative clubs , the ramifications of which may extend up to National organizations ? Until they do , they will be the foot balls of that capital which is a worse tyrant to-day in this free country than the autocracies of Russia or Turkey are in theirs .
Bushing After Booms . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
Bushing After Booms . Last year wool was depressed . Flocks were ruthlessly slaughtered . Now former flock owners would like to have more innocent sheep . The last broom corn crop was light . Speculators rushed in , cornered the market , and put up the price of brush 130 per cent . The housewife found that carpet sweepers were cheaper than broom handles , and it was also discovered that corn brooms were not economical for sweeping sidewalks , porches , etc . It would be interesting to know if these changes in the use of implements would permanently influence the price of broom corn . Nevertheless , many farmers are anxious to rush into the cultivation of broom corn and without knowing much of the special appliances to insure suc cess . Many such may , like some flock masters , wish another year that they had gone slow . ,. , . Wheat is low , and the live stock industry is likely to have a boom It is not improbable that the live stock flurry will be as unprofitable as any other indus...
The Question of Roads . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
The Question of Roads . Every farmer has sad experience in the spring and during the winter of the value of good roads . In many communities , where lessons from mud blockades have been intelligently taken to heart , earnest efforts have been made to improve the conditions of roads , and with satisfactory results to the pocket every time . Only in those sections , however , where the more modern machines have been brought into use , have earth roads been made fairly perfect . The reason is that machinery for this purpose has been largely perfected , and the same measure of success in road making has been arrived at as in plowing , seeding , mowing and harvesting . Why , then , stick to thespade , shovel and farm wagon way of moving the earth in road making ? Why not pay the road tax in money , and allow machines that can move earth and place it where it is wanted , for a few cents per cuuic yarn , vo uo me worjer The principal reason is that the crossroads politicians have had too m...
Important Telegraphic Improvement . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
Important Telegraphic Improvement . Edison s air telegraph seems a complete success . At a late trial on the Milwaukee &amp; St . Paul railroad , between Chicago and Milwaukee , messages were correctly sent and received , the current passing freely from the roof of the car to the wires , 100 feet distant . By this means dispatches may be delivered or sent at any point between stations , but it is not yet decided , even in Mr . Edison s mind , just how far this means may be valuable . Among other eminent railroad authorities who have expressed opinions , Mr . Jeffrey , General Manager of the Illinois Central railroad , expressed the opinion that on leading trunk lines carrying passengers whose business required instant attention , while en route , the system of communication would be of especial value . In the running of trains and as a means of avoiding accidents , there is no doubt of its value .
The Power of the Farmer . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 10 April 1886
The Power of the Farmer . The individual farmer seems to be at the mercy of any one , and appears as a helpless and defenseless creature , yei the farmer is really one of the most powerful factors of the human beings comprising our population . The calluifc of the farmer is a peaceful one , and ne • not naturally aggressive , but the time will some day arrive when force « l cumstances will compel him to consider his interests in a manner different from that to which he is now disposed . What a grand and powerful «* - « ££ the farmers could exercise if ** ey . w £ e united together as one common cIOIay .
