SPROUTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

SPROUTS Before buying trees for an orchard take time to look about your own neighborhood and find which varieties do test . Dont take the word of the nurseryman or agent for this . Buy trees it possible near your own home and set them out the same day you get them . Prepare the place to set them before the trees come and take plenty of time to do the work well . Very few people appreciate the beauties of portulaca . It blooms only when the sun shines , hut then the stalks are covered with flowers of brightest color in white and every shade of red and yellow . To get double Powers save seed from semi-double blossoms , as the double ones are seedless . When potatoes are being dug this fall , pick out those that are to be used for seed and let them lie in the open air , not necessarily in the sun , until they have begun to get rather green . Such seed will begin to grow quicker after being planted than that which is kept from the light . In saving seeds of flowers save only from the be...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Garden and Orchard The Popular Keiffer Pear In comparatively recent years , says an exchange , the Keiffer pear has come into great prominence in the fruit sections both west and east . It is receiving marked attention from progressive , horticulturists and commercial orchardists . When first put upon the market , the Keiffer pear was the subject of extravagant claims / trees selling as high as $ 2 . 50 to $ 3 each . In a year or two complaints began to be heard . The tree itself fulfilled all that had been said of it , but the fruit was quite undesirable ,: and as a result complaints were loud and bitter . But some successful fruit growers had in the meantime learned more about this variety . They advised picking in early October , storing in a cool , dark . place , and promised astonishing results when the fruit came to perfection a month later . Nor were they disappointed , and the prejudice of its early days has passed away , the Keiffer . today taking its place among the favori...

'Squire Bunker , M . D . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Squire Bunker , M . D . Hank Lister sat on a nail keg in the grocery in a very disconsolate attitude . His arms were folded and he leaned forward until his elbows rested on his knees , making the upper part of his arms braces t which supported his body , it required but a glance to believe Hank when he asserted that he felt purty tcugh , for he looked that way . . Grouped about him were other of the usual crowd , not one of whom seemed to feel perfectly well . Even Bob Urner , the postmaster , seemed to have caught the prevailing depression . Conversation was at a very low ebb and the sultry August evening was evidently productive of much gloom among the inhabitants of Bunkum . Occasionally a boy . girl or . quiet looking woman came in and bought a few cents worth of some article and retired , but trade languished ; The war news had no enlivening effect , although the Independent had just brought news of probable peace . I blieve this is goin to be a sickly summer , asserted Hank Li...

Live Stock and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Live Stock and Dairy For Pure Milk W . J . Fraser , assistant in dairying at the Illinois , Experiment ^ station , has compiled and the station has published , a bulletin which shows how impure milk usually is and tells how to have it pure . It is one of the most important publications that has emanated from this source and fully deserving of the complete summary below : Without doubt more filth is consumed in milk than in any other article of food . When taking a glass of it how frequently something is found at the bottom that is anything but inviting , speaking all too plainly of the methods of the dairymen . But not all contamination is sediment and milk may he far from pure even though there be no foreign matter visible to the naked eye . Milk sours because of the presence of certain kinds of bacteria , which , acting upon the sugar of the milk , change it into lactic acid . Other organisms cause different changes , some offensive to taste and smell and a few dangerous to health...

Cheese for a Small Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Cheese for a Small Dairy Experiments have been made to ascertain what kind of cheese is best adapted to the small home dairy . The Gonda cheese , made of new milk , seems to be the most satisfactory . This cheese has for many years been made in Holland , but by a somewhat different process from the one used here . While fresh from the cow the milk is aerated . When it has stood long enough to lose its animal heat , warm to 90 degrees F ., using sufllcienl rennet to cause coagulation in from seven to ten minutes . Let stand from fifteen to twenty minutes , then inserl the front finger at an angle of 45 degrees until it touches the curd . If on withdrawal the curd breaks clean across with few or no bits attaehed , it is ready to cut . Divide with a knife until the size is that of an average wheat kernel . Stir gently five minutes , then gradually increase the heat until 100 to 104 degrees is reached , constantly stirring as the temperature rises . Drain or dip off the whey , leaving t...

The New Bacon Hog [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

The New Bacon Hog Strange as it may seem , the razorback hog is assuming considerable prominence in several sections , both North and South . It is being boomed as the coming bacon hog , and there are many who believe that the perfect bacon hog will be found in a cross of the razorback and the Berkshire or Tamworth of more civilized antecedents . There has been a great change in the demand for bacon . Formerly consumers were satisfied with one streak of lean to two of fat in their bacon , but now they want it regularly striped with lean and fat , and the more lean the better . This new fashion is an imported one and comes from those who have learned how delicious Danish and Irish bacon is . American feeders have this problem before them , and until they solve it they must be content to take the lowest price for their bacon . The razorback makes good bacon when well fed and given unlimited opportunities to roam at large . The Berkshire is the most active of the popular breeds and a c...

Rye for Pasturage [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Rye for Pasturage For the growing calves and the sheep it is quite an item to furnish them with pasturage as late in the fall and as early in the spring as possible . With these two classes of stock especially good pasturage is the cheapest mode of feeding . One of the best ways of supplying pasturage is to sow a patch of rye . By sowing the latter part of August or early in September , there will be time for the plant to make a good start to grow and to get well established before severe cold weather sets in . As with all crops a better germination of the seed and a more vigorous start to grow can be secured and a larger quantity of feed obtained if the ground is reasonably rich and is thoroughly prepared in a good tilth before the seed is sown . Use plenty of seed and sow under as favorable conditions as possible . When it can be done it will be an item to select a piece of ground convenient to the stable . Keep the stock away from it as long as the pastures supply plenty of grass...

Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Poultry and Bees Feeding for Eggs Hundreds of pages have been written on this subject , but it is apparently as fresh as ever . The one question that will pass between two poultry breeders before they have been talking about chickens long will be : What do you feed your laying hens ? The answer is almost as varied as the number of questions asked about it . We hear of mixtures sold as poultry feed that induces hens to lay regularly all the year around , and we hear of flocks that are never given any of these stimulants that lay as well as can be expected of any lot of hens . Some breeders feed by rule , but it is noticeable that such feeders are constantly . trying to improve on their formula . One man feeds oats in large quantities and another never feeds them at all . Feeding for eggs is the most puzzling subject that ever presents itelf to the poultry keeper who studies his business . Since 1882 this question has been before us , and we begin to think we know something about it ,...

Spraying Trees Kills Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898

Spraying Trees Kills Bees The Ohio experiment station recently conducted an experiment to determine the effect on bees of spraying fruit trees with arsenites . A Lombard plum tree was made thoroughly wet without dripping . The upper portion of the tree down to the lower branches was covered with a square of thin brown sheeting and held down by ropes and stakes . The lower portion , including a space of about eight feet square , was inclosed by mosquito netting sewed to the sheeting above and fastened below so as to prevent the escape of the bees . The ground thus enclosed was covered with the same material as the top cover . At 7 . 30 p . m . the hive , which had been placed near this tree some two weeks before , was moved into the inclosure and the whole secured . Dead bees began to be observed on the ground cover early the next morning and by 10 a . m . a considerable number had died and fallen on the cloth . Others were evidently exhausting themselves in trying to escape . At 1 ....
