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

CHAFF SOUND ADVICE . You wish to be a lawyer , John—well , Id not say a word Unless 1 felt quite certain that your longings are absurd ; I dont wish to discourage you , but then I cant consent , To board you , as Id hey to do , and pay your office rent . You ve got a lusty set o limbs , and ordinary head , And you were meant by common toil to earn your daily bread ; But thriving farm and pleasant home where man and wife agree Beat any one-horse lawyer s luck as far as you can see . If youd been born with talent , John , youd long ago bev shown That you had gifts by stealing off to study books alone . Now , if youve ever read a book 1 r ally dont know when , Though , come to think , I blieve you sling a somewhat legal pen . Be wise , my boy , the legal ranks are more than crowded now , And half of them who starve therein were cut out for the plow , But they mistook pure laziness for talent , understand , And helped to fill a big supply where there was no demand . Are they not educate...

THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE SHEAF THE most comprehensive reliable crop and stock reports that are published by any newspaper in the United States are to be found regularly in the columns of the FARMERS REVIEW . Our crop correspondents deserve and receive our thanks for the promptness and truthfulness of their weekly reports . THE heavy exports ot cheese to England during the past four weeks have averaged over 80 , 000 boxes per week , but , as enormous as they have been , they seem to be wanted . The price in Liverpool yesterday was quoted at 62 shillings per 100 lbs ., equivalent to 15 % cents per lb . American money . IT seems that , contrary to announce ments in the public press , the Minnesota State Agricultural Society is to hold a fair after all . It will occur at Rochester , August 30—September 4 . We have before us a very neat premium list of this fair , from which we learn that on the last day there will occur an auction sale of live stock , etc . We have no doubt that this fair will be largely at...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

AGRICULTURAL THE INDUSTRIAL UNIVERSITY . Editors FARMERS REVIEW : I notice with much pleasure the interest maintained through your columns in the Industrial University , evidenced by the letter of Mr . Periam published in the REVIEW of the 34 th ult . and otherwise . It is true , as stated by Mr . Periam , that Prof . J . B . Turner , of Jacksonville , and some others of us , spent a good part of several years of our early manhood , together with considerable money , in arousing the farming and mechanical population of Illinois to a just sense of the importance of a high school for the proper instruction of youth in the arts and sciences underlying agricultural and mechanical pursuits . It is true that those efforts resulted in the act of Congress which was passed by the persistent ten years work of Mr . Morrill , of the House of Representatives , and which established the Industrial University of Illinois . Since the passage of the act I have scarce written a word or done an act , ...

H ORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

H ORTICULTURAL . IN THE GARDEN .-No . 22 . It is always a pleasure to know that one s work is appreciated . Particularly is it so to the man or woman who seeks , through the medium of the press , to bring the attention of fellow men and women to a certain subject , laboring all the while under the fear that what he or she writes will be read carelessly , and that there its influence will end ; ; I write this because I have received letters from several correspondents which laiw-o oLffoi-dofl mii sonuine i > loa . imi * e , nn ACcount of thrfrT « ferencff 1 » * thIs ( j «( r ie 8 of garden articles .

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE POULTRY YARD EGGS AS FOOD . Says the Massachusetts Plowman : Eggs are another article of cheap and nutritious food which we do not find on farmer s tables in the quantity which economy demands . They are very convenient to take to the store and exchange for sugar , spices , etc ., and this is the disposition which too many farmers make of them . They probably do not fully comprehend how valuable eggs are as food ; that like milk , an egg is a complete food in itself , containing everything necessary for the development of a perfect animal , as is manifest from the fact that a chick is formed from it . It seems a mystery how muscles , bones , feathers and everything that a chick requires for its perfect development , are made from the yolk and white of an egg ; but such is the fact , and it shows how complete a food an egg is . It is also easily digested , if not damaged in cooking . A raw or soft-boiled egg is almost as easily assimilated as is milk , and can be eaten with impun...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE APIARY TRANSFERRING BEES FROM OLD FASHIONED HIVES . I now come to talk over one of the hfWst beautiful sciences . and if properly managed a very lucrative business . First , I must have a good set of transferring tools ; also a good board or table , and a pail full of water . Then I must have a bee-smoker in order to smoke or tame my hive of bees , before I transfer . These appliances being ready , I put a small roll of cotton rags into my bee-tamer ; with one end lighted I gave the bees a few puffs of smoke with the smoker , and soon you will hear the little fellows calling out tor quarters . This is a sure sign of their being subdued as you hear them humming quite loudly in the old hive . Now pick up the hive of bees and carry to your table , having placed it in a proper place , where the other bees will not bother you . There have a good cold-chisel or hammer or hatchet , so as to cut the nails and take off one side of your old hive . This being done , you are ready to cut ou...

MONEY AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

MONEY AND COMMERCE MONEY KAKKEI , TUESDAY KVBHINS . Augustas . 1880 . There is very little alteration to note in financial affairs . The demand for loans at the banks is not equal to the supply , and the market is easy at 5 @ 8 per cent for time loans , on commercial nameB and collaterals , and 3 @ 5 per cent on call . Beal estate loans are quoted at 6 @ 7 per cent , on city , and 7 @ 8 per cent on country property . The movement of money to the country continues large . KEVIEW OH 1 THE MERCHANDISE MARKET .

THE COLOR OF ANIMALS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE COLOR OF ANIMALS Are white animals more delicate in constitution than those of other colors f In a meeting of the Ayrshire Breeders Association one of the speakers Quoted Agassiz in the affirmative , and added for himself that consanguinity carried too far in breeding is likely to develop too much white in the color of the stock . A correspondent of the New York Tribune says he never met with proof of this assertion ; on the contrary , so tar as his experience is concerned , red or brown , rather than white , most often followed close breeding . But as for white animals being more delicate than other colors , look at horses , and especially sheep ; white Short Horn cattle , and , above all , the pure white breed of Charolais in France . A hardier race of cattle does not exist , and the same may be said of some other quite light colored cattle in Europe . Is the white polar bear a delicate animal ? Naturalists assert that several other hardy kinds of animals in the Arctic regions...

THE RANCHMEN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE RANCHMEN The term ranch is of Spanish origin and signifies a tract of land used for the raising of cattle or horses , it being usually understood that such tracts are of pretty large size . This kind of stock raising has been carried on pretty extensively in Mexico for the past two or three centuries . When therefore the United States obtained from Mexico a large slice of territory , which included Texas , New Mexico and California , we got a good many ranches included within the territory named . And thus by acquisition we got the ranch system of raising cattle and sheep more particularly , fully inaugurated within the United States . At the present time we have in the aggregate a large number of these cattle and sheep ranches scattered over Texas , New Mexico , Colorado and Wyoming . A common plan in establishing these ranches in our country has been for fhe ranchmen to select in some wild district , far out of the way of settlement , a good location , having plenty of water ,...

THE PERfJHERON HORSE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 August 1880

THE PERfJHERON HORSE In his report to the French government , Chas . Du Huijs speaks in the following laudatory manner of the horses of the ancient province of Perche : Almost every thing that has been written about the horse may be reduced pretty much to complaining that there does not exist a breed which unites , in an elevated degree , high moral to physical qualities ; modestly seeking and teaching the means of obtaining such a breed . It is reasonable that such sentiments should surprise us here in the heart of France , where , for a long time , a race of horses has furnished which may be said to fill the requirements proposed in every way . The proof of this statement is easy ; a hasty sketch of the principal characters of the breed suffices to furnish it . To no ordinary strength , to vigor which does not degenerate , and to a conformation which does not exclude elegance , it joins docility , mildness , patience , honesty , great kindness , excellent health , and a hardy , el...
