FOR YOUNG READERS , [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

FOR YOUNG READERS , A RECEIPT FOR A RACKET . What does it take to make a racket ? Well , bless me , I certainly ought to know , For I ve made them a scare of times or so ! Here s the receipt-and I cant be wrong—For making them hot and sweet and strong ! What does it take to make a racket ? Two small boys ln pants and jacket ; An empty room and a bare wood floor ; A couple of sticks to bang the door ; A chair ortwo to break and to swing ; A trumpet to blow and a bell to ring ; A stamp and a tramp liko a great big man . And , when you can get It , an old tin pan : A flight of stairs for a climb and a tumble ; A nursery maid to growl and grumble ; A chorus of howl and cry and shriek To drown your voice if you try to speak ; A dozen good blows on knees and back , Each one coining down with a terrible whack ; A couple of falls that would crack a nut , And one good bump on your occiput ; A rush and a skurry ; a tear and a clatter ; A mamma to cry , ; Now what is the matter ? >*...

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

MISCELLANEOUS CALIFORNIA WHEAT . It is only a few years since California wheat commanded the the highest price in foreign markets and uniformly brought twenty cents more per hundred pounds than the wheat raised in any other State . Now , however , California wheat brings as much less per cental than other wheat , as the premium upon it formerly was . The reasons for this remarkable change are wholly due to the negligence of farmers , who have in the first place allowed the grades to deteriorate , and in the next place have resorted to methods of harvesting and threshing that preclude the possibility of wheat being clean . The custom of many farmers in California is to cut the wheat with headers , dumping the headed grain in low piles on the ground until a convenient time for threshing , and then moving the grain to the mouth of the machine by the use of horse-fork and selffeeder . This method of harvesting is economical in time and labor ; although , as may readily be surmised , the...

CHAFF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

CHAFF A DARKEY who was stooping to wash his hands in a creek , didnt notice the peculiar actions ot a goat just behind him ; so , when he scrambled out of the water and was asked how it happened , he answered : I dunno zactly ; but peared as if de shore kinder histed and frowed me . A DUTCHMAN who married his second wife soon after the funeral of the first , was visited with a two hours serenade in token of disapproval .

THE SHEAF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880

THE SHEAF . OVER 1 , 000 , 000 cigars were latel * shipped from San Francisco to the Eastern markets . They were made by the Chinese . The leprosy is said to exist among the Chinese of San Francisco to ah extent much greater than we of the East dare even imagine . The cigars may become the medium for its spread throughout the country . These cigar manufacturers have a way of sprinkling tobacco when manufacturing it which if they had no taint of leprosy in their systems , would render the idea of smoking one of their cigars rather abhorrent . They take the water into the mouth and force it in some peculiar manner , in the form of fine spray very evenly over the tobacco . Some fastidious people would rather have the sprinkling done in another way , and the possible thought of the saliva of a leper being thus incorporated into the cigar is really most terrible , THE army worm is reported to have made its appearance near Indianapolis last week . It will do little damage this yew , howev...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880

AGRICULTURAL PLOWING CORN LAND IN THE FALL . Many successful corn growers in Wisconsin plow their corn land in the Pall . At the last Winter meeting , as we see it reported in the late annual report of the Wisconsin society , just received through the kindness of Secretary Bryant , we find Mr . J . M . Smith saying that two years hefore he had a piece of land that he wanted to plant to corn the following Spring . He plowed nearly the whole of it late in the Pall , hut a freeze coming on , a small strip was left till Spring , at which time he plowed it as early as the ground was in good condition . He planted the whole piece at the same time , and tended it alike in every respect . The ground prepared in the Pall yielded at the rate of 100 bushels per acre ; that plowed in the Spring gave only about twenty-five bushels per acre . All was plowed at same depth , and the land in both cases was in good , dry condition when plowed . Mr . Hazen had had good success in plowing up old pastur...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880

HORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN-N 0 .-2 I . If any one is intending to get a strawberry bed this season , no time should be lost in doing it . Many eminent , practical growers of this favorite fruit consider it better to set plants in the Pall than in Spring , and my own experience convinces me that early-set plants , well taken care of during the Winter will afford nearly as good a crop the next year as may be expected the second year trom a bed set in Spring . If the vines are strong and healthy , the ground rich and properly prepared , and the planting done in August , or by the first of September , there is plenty of time for a thorough establishment and growth before the . cold weather sets in . It is necessary , however , that the sets be vigorous , and have plenty of roots , that the soil should be mellow , and rich , not merely on the surface , but to the depth of a foot , at least . The strawberry , in such soil , will throw out long and vigorous roots , and absorb the life-giv...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880

THE DAIRY CARE OF DAIRY COWS . They require a large amount of it , and if they do not receive it they will fail to be profitable . They demand more to eat than other kinds of stock , as much of the food they consume is employed in the production of milk . If the supply of food is stinted , the yield of milk will be lessened , for the ordinary waste of the system will be provided for whether milk is secreted or not . It is not enough to allow daii-y cows the range of a good pasture . This may afford sufficient food , and it may not . The growth of grass depends very largely on the season . If it is quite dry the growth of grass will be small . If it is very wet , the grass may be abundant , but it will be wanting in the elements necessary to produce rich , sweet milk . Where several dairy cows are kept on a farm there should always he provision for supplying them with food when feed in the pasture is short . Corn fodder , raised by sowing the seed broadcast or by planting in drills ,...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880

THE APIARY DOES IT PAY TO PLANT FOR HONEY . This has often been a subject for discussion in conventions , and has been commented upon pro and con in our bee papers , but it is far from being a settled question as when flrst promulgated . After the poor yields of the last two years , we are confirmed in the opinion that it will not only pay to plant with a special view to the honey product , but , also , that honey will not become a staple , with a fixed and permanent value , and quotable as are other staples , until more attention is given to providing forage for the bees , that the product may not depend wholly upon the favorableness of the season for white clover , \ yWg . < MwuC * W-YiP , te .
