It is usually attended to about the beginning of the year This is done for the double purpose of securing purity of the stock and early hatches . Hens and pullets are apt to receive the attentions of the cock for some time before they begin to lay .

Northern Wisconsin [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Northern Wisconsin Labor nt S- a day the year round ; mcuhiiukul skill proportionately paid : government land m abundance for the taking ; other lands at nominal figures ; good , strong soil , live water , pleasant climate , strong home market . These arc the inducements that a host of young newspapers in Northern Wisconsin are holding out to the immigrant ; and , forsooth , they are not a little inviting . The distant always looks more attractive than the near , and it would be small wonder , therefore , if in the chase after the much advertised Dakota wealth , equal or even superior opportunities nearer home iiad been entirely over looked . It is not our business to advocate one section of country more than another , and we know that multitudes have taken moderate capital and sowed it in Dakota , reaping crops as liberal as ^ lie wheat yield , and in almost as short a time . But wo do know this : that any region where the settlers can raise thirty bushels of No 1 winter wheat to t...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
MISCELLANEOUS The Salvia . E . E . K . One of the best summer and autumn flowers wo have is the salvia , or scarlet sage It grows luxuriantly , and its bright green foliage is so pretty that a bed of it would be a pleasant sight if it had no blossoms . But add to the beauty of its vigorous foliage the brilliancy of its profuse flowers and you have something worth cultivating in any garden . We have no garden flower more vivid in coloring than this one . Its scarlet is so intense as to be velvety , and its long spikes of bloom brighten the garden like a flame . It makes rae feel warm to look at it , a little girl once said to me . The salvia , especially the S . splendent , the scarlet variety , is also very useful in the house during winter . It will bloom almost constantly in the window , and nothing can be more attractive than a large , well grown specimen covered with . ilowers . It stands cutting back well , as the more you cut it the more branches it produces , and every branch...
Authors' Handwriting . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Authors Handwriting . Jane Grey Swisshelm has a peculiar , close backhand , with the appearance as if written rapidly . Miss Louise Alcott , whose name is so dear to American children , also writes &amp; backhand , legible , with the lines wide apart . Lucy Larcom , tlie poetess , and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps , the authoress , write cramped , oldwomanish hands . Mrs . A . D . T . Whitney and Marion Harlaud write rapid and somewhat illcgble hands . Nora Perry can write quite gracefully , but often it glides into illegibility . CeMa Thaxter , the poetess , is another backhand writer —always easy to read . Miss Fletcher , authoress of some of the best novels in the No Name series , has a chirography like steel engraving . Language , Young folks tell what they do . old folte what they have done , and fools what they intend to do . Some people are always boasting of their ervices , but the spoke of the wheel that creaks has no load to bear . Talking is like playing on the harp ; t...
