A WORD FOR THE HOLSTEINS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

A WORD FOR THE HOLSTEINS . A correspondent of the Country Gentleman speaks the following praise of this breed of cattle , in response to another correspondent : For making veal the Holsteins stand without a peer . It is very seldom that a calf will consume the milk that the dam gives . The result is that the calves grow rapidly and fatten quickly . If Mr . Wright could stand on the wharf at Flushing , in Holland , as I have done , and see a steamboat depart for the London market loaded with veal calves , which for size and condition surpassed any thing he ever dreamed of , ho would conclude that tbe English people had a better opinion of the Holsteins than he has . And if he will take the trouble to vist a herd of Holsteins of Which I could tell him , in this country , numbering now about one hundred head , he will see a number of cows each of which will turn the scales at sixteen hundred pounds , and a bull that will do it quickly at three thousand pounds . He will acknowledge that...

VETERINARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

VETERINARY . QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY : LACERATED WOUND—CONDI - TION POWDERS . —J . M . G , of Alexandria , Dak ., writes : One of our horses had his left hind leg cut on the lay of a breaking plow two weeks ago . It took a piece of skin off on the inside of the leg about two inches long and one inch wide , and about six inches above the hock joint , then cut in deeper and almost square across the leg . The cord was nearly cut off . We have been dressing the wound once a day with a salve ; it seems to be doing well , only there is a bunch almost as large as half a hen s egg , which looks like the swollen end of the cord . It is hard and red , and does not appear to diminish in size . The horse walks all right , only the leg settles down at the hock joint and is weak . He has been out to grass a great part of the time . We thought it best to turn him out because the leg was swelling up badly . Now will you kindly inform me if you think he will be seriously affected by the wound , ...

RURAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETIES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

RURAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETIES It is said the State of Connecticut has flfly or more village improvement socie- | ties . This speaks well for that enterprising State and the cause it thus fosters . Each of these societies will be the radiating center for others and will do great good in a general way as well in their immediate local influence . The object of J these societies is to protect the public health , by establishing favorable sanitary conditions about village and rural homes ; to stimulate public spirit in every way ; to improve the roads and beautify the roadsides , as well as grounds about schoolhouses , churches , cemeteries and public squares , to educate the public taste lof rural art and adornment , and altogether to make country homes and life more satisfactory and attractive .

LIGHTNING RODS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

LIGHTNING RODS In our last issue there appeared an article on the non-utility of lightning-rods , by Dr . Brubacker , about which there will be doubtless a variety of opinions . Our own views on this subject are , that it is one from the discussion of which much benefit may be derived . While wehave met persons having considerable experience who assure us that they never knew a rodded building to be struck by lightning , others , again , whose opinions are equally entitled to respect , declare that in their experience of damage by lightning to buildings , the question of rods seemed to cut no figure at all . In the article referred to , in fact , Dr . Brubacker mentions several cases in support of this view of the case , all of them well authenticated . There are , no doubt , very many cases where the rods are badly put up , either the insulation being in I complete or the wire failing to penetrate the earth to the region of perpetual moisture , or defective from some other cause , ...

THE WOOD TWINE BINDER . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

THE WOOD TWINE BINDER . We have been watching the career of the Walter A . Wood twine binder with peculiar interest through the harvest now drawing to a close . A large proportion of farmers engaged in growing grain seem to be taking for granted that a twine-binding harvester is something that they must have , and they have purchased the large number of these machines placed on the market this season by the Wood Company with an eagerness far exceeding the abili . ty of the makers to satisfy , many wouldbe purchasers having been left unsupplied . Farmers bought it freely , relying on the long-established reputation of the manufacturers for their security that it would prove useful and reliable in practice , many who did not buy it expecting to buy twine binders of some kind , and watching and inquiring regarding its reliability , as harvest progressed . The grain binder is a comparatively new machine on the farm , but it has already become so well known in America that little need be...

METEOROLOGY AND AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

METEOROLOGY AND AGRICULTURE A conference on agricultural and forest meterology is to be held at Vienna , Austria , on the 7 th of September . The programme states that the following points are to be especially considered : l . What are the mutual relations of the meteorological elements on vegetation , not only those which are proved to exist , but those which are theoretically supposed to be probable ? 2 . What observations of meteorological elements are to be particularly attended to , with especial reference to their influence on vegetation ? 3 . How far and in what way can meteorological observatories and stations , without inter , fering with their other work , include these observations in their sphere of operations ? 4 . Would it not be useful , with a view of establishing special systems of observations lor this object , to prepare general in structions ? 5 . Can , at the present moment , meteorological central offices issue weather forecasts for the use of agriculture with ...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 July 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS An Iowa fire insurance company has issued a circular recently , explaining why it did not insure against tornadoes . In common with other companies doing lire insurance business • in farm property , its agents , it says , have been frequently asked for insurance against tornadoes , or why the company did not insure against tornadoes . The grounds given for not insuring against tornadoes , as well as against fire and lightning , are well taken . The utter want of experience , the lack of any satisfactory data upon which to base any calculation as to tbe actual extent of hazard assumed by this class of insurance , makes it impossible to fix rates with any degree of accuracy . The general average of fire-loss and lightning-loss lias been pretty well ascertained , as the result of an experience of years , or rather of centuries . So closely has this been ascertained that experienced underwriters have been able to fix different rates in different ones among the older Stat...
