The week under review has been marked by an active movement of money to the country to pay for the small grain crops that are now being marketed freely , and receipts of money from the Eastern cities has been large . There has also been an increased call for loans from miscellaneous branches of busines-, and the money market is a shade firmer , at 5 @ 6 per cent , for large loans on choice names and collaterals , and 6 @ 8 per cent , for ordinary sums on good commercial paper . The scarcity of legal tender and national bank notes is causing great inconvenience to the banks , and orders from the interior for funds are filled with gold .

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO 27 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO 27 ALDKRNEYS , JEBSEYS , ( iUEUXSEYS .. Under the names of the three chief islands of the group , the cattle of the Channel Islands have won wide fame . Within the last dozen years the number and popularity of these cattle have greatly increased in the United States . There are now more Jersey cattle in this country than of any other breed save the ShortHorn , and good specimens sell readily at good prices — in a few cases prices have been made , which were probably higher than have been paid for any other cattle , again , excepting tlie Short- 11 oma . The origin of these cattle is uncertain , but it seems mo 3 t reasonable to suppose they are descended from the cattle of Normandy , aa there are points of resemblance , and the islands lie near the French coast . The cattle of the three islands named are of the same general type . Those of Alderney and Jersey are so nearly alike that they are often classed as of one breed . Alderney is a small island , havin...
GRADING WOOL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
GRADING WOOL The Boston Shipping List in answer to a correspondent , explains the grading of wool in that city , as follows : The wools of Pennsylvania , Ohio , and West Virginia are graded Picklock , XXX , XX , X , No . 1 , medium , No » 2 and staple wool , which includes combing and delaine . Picklock represents the very finest grade of wool that comes to market , and the other grades according to their relative fineness down to No . 3 , which represents coarsest . The finest grades of Michigan , Wisconsin , New Hampshire and Maine are not above an X , and are not so valuable for consumption by 3 to 4 c per pound as the Ohio and Pennsylvania X wools . The price of an X wool , however , depends in a greatdegrefe on its condition , and the careful manner in which growers wash and send it to market . These grades are all well defined and easily distinguished by an expert who is the habit of grading aDd handling wool . The grades of pulled Wool are also well defined . An X means the f...

QUERIES AND ANSWERS INJUKED—P AHALYSIS AMONG SWINE— 1 *&gt; - JUKED—CArONIZINO . QUERY : INJURED . —N . L . N . State Center , Iowa ,. writes : My 3-year old colt got her right fore ankle cut on the wire fence about two months ago . It is all healed , but she is lame , and the leg is somewhat enlarged . In the flrst place I washed it with castile soap and alum water . Will you please tell me through your Veterinary department why it does not get sound , and what is the best remedy to apply . ANSWER : Injuries of the above character are often so trifling as to cause but little inconvenience to the animal , and readily heal , and the lameness disappears by the application of some simple treatment ; on the other hand they sometimes are so severe as to cause great trouble , anxiety and loss—finally terminating in an everlasting blemish , and permanent lame ness , and not unfrequently in the death ot the animal , and though these unhappy results are liable to take place notwithst...

LEG WEAKNESS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
LEG WEAKNESS Leg weakness is generally caused by the size and weight of the body being more than the legs can bear ; it is shown by the bird resting on the first joint . Being entirely the result of weakness , the best treatment is that which gives general strength and stamina to the sufferer . Citrate of iron must be given dissolved in ale , and added to the food , which may be more than usually nourishing , but not in greater quantity , as over-feeding has occasioned the disease . Frequent bathing in cold water is very beneficial .. This is the best affected by ing it over a pail otw &amp; CT , Wttd--. iH--- &amp; gB only immersed , so as not to injure the plumage . Absence of lime in the poultry yard sometimes causes leg weakness , and old age invariably shows itself in the trembling limb . Warmth and generous diet are the sole remedies for this . —The Henwife . ___________ LIME . —The value of lime in the form of whitewash is well known , and those who use it lib...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
THE POULTRY YARD EGGS vs . CHICKENS . On the average , I still believe that eggs will pay the best . The demand for them really seems practically unlimited at a steady wholesale price , while there are possibilities always open for high prices where supply can be guaranteed of a genuine new-laid character . Of poultry , I am , after all that has been said , unable to see the same prospects . I have always been able to buy fowls pretty cheap by going to the right quarters ; and it seems to me that any greatly increased demand at such prices as have been mentioned , except at certain seasons , will have pretty much to be created . There are , doubtless , local exceptions to this ; and fine chickens in Spring and very early Summer always fetch good prices . I have nothing whatever to say against chicken rearing to any one who has satisfied himself that he can get rid of a quantity at paying prices , and in these few lines merely wish to convey that in general , apart from local circums...

ILLINOIS STATE BOARD ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
ILLINOIS STATE BOARD ELECTION The president and vice-presidents of the Illinois State Board ot Agriculture , are to be elected on Wednesday , September 29 , on the fair grounds at Springfield . At this election each county is entitled to three votes , to be cast by delegates to be chosen by the County , Union or District Agricultural Board , where one exists , otherwise by the Board of Supervisors or County Board , as the case may be . We notice that many societies have already announced their delegates . It is the duty of every local society to choose three delegates , and see to it that they are present . These men should be enterprising agriculturists who have the interests of their respective districts at heart . Each of the nineteen congressional districts is entitled to a vice-president . The selection of a candidate is usually left to the delegates from each district , and this nomination ,-in most cases , is equivalent to an election . It is well , therefore , for societies ...
THE MASONIC DISPLAY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
THE MASONIC DISPLAY As we close the REVIEW this week , the sound of musiefrom many bands greets the ear , and the streets resound with the steady march of thousands of Knights Templar , who are congregating for the grand triennial conclave . The lake shore is covered with tents , and the public buildings , business blocks , and hundreds of private dwellings , are gaily decorated with flags and tho symbolic designs of the order . On tomorrow ( Tuesday ) will take place the grand parade of the Knights in uniform . It is expected that at least 40 , 000 will be in I ine . At night , on Tuesday , the ball takes place at the Expositidn Building . Some 150 , 000 invitations have been issued , and it will undoubtedly prove the most brilliant scene of the kind ever beheld . On Wednesday afternoon the competitive drill takes place at the grounds of the Jockey Club , to the west of the city . Chicago , which is accustomed to entertaining vast crowds , will be taxed to its utmost this week . Tu...
CANADIAN SALT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
CANADIAN SALT The inquiries of the Ontario Agricultural Commission have elicited some interesting information as to the product of Canadian salt , its quality and consumption . An American engaged as a salt manufacturer at Kincardine since 1871 , stated that he made about 10 , 000 tons . .. . ,- vr . — --- ~ ~* «»* AMi * i iittaeua iu 1 the * w Unitedi 3 ftitSs , the princi pal market being chiefly in Chicago , Milwaukee and other Western places . He also stated that most of the salt was used in pork-packing , and that it was preferred for this purpose by most of his Western customers to the English salt . What is used in Canada is so used , mainly for fertilizing purposes , and is sold there at $ 2 . 50 to $ 3 per ton . Another firm at Seaforth , Ont ., gave their yearly product as 70 , 000 to 75 , 000 barrels , marketed principall y in the United States and Canada . The pork-packers complained somewhat of a briny scum produced by the salt on the meat , but witness thought this was...
CREMATE THE CHOLERA HOGS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 August 1880
CREMATE THE CHOLERA HOGS A few weeks ago the FABMEHS REVIEW translated from the French an account of the investigation of M . Pasteur into the causes of what is known as chicken cholera . The same gentleman has extended his researches so as to determine as nearly as possible the origin of anthrax , or splenic fever , and similar diseases that attack the larger domestic animals . He finds that earth worms perform an important part in disseminating this class of diseases . When an animal dies of anthrax , says M . Pasteur , it is quite often buried on the spot . The conditions of putrefaction prove fatal to the small parasitic organisms , or bacteridium , which is abundant in the blood at death . The gas given off causes it to break up into dead and harmless granulations . But before this can occur not a little of the blood and humors of the body have escaped into the ground about the carcasses , and here the parasite is in an aerated medium favorable to the formation of germs . These...
