AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

AGRICULTURAL The European Larch . The . Larch , or ( Pinus larix , ) ot Linnaeus , is a native of the southern parts of Europe . Among the Romans it was used in their buildings in preference to every other kind of . wood . Vitruvius says that the houses erected in MB time -were not near as durable as Vhe riTore ancient , structures , and he attributed this , in a great measure , to the scarcity of the larix wood in his days , in the : neighborhood of Borne . The larch grows in great abundance along the whole extent of the Alps and the mountains that branch from them . When the barbarous tribes overran Italy in the middle ages the inhabitants around the borders of the Adriatic Gulf , order to avoid the fury of the invaders , erected houses for themselves on piles of larch wood , driven into the mud in those marshes in which Venice now stands . When these buildings had to be renewed , in several hundreds of years afterwards , the piles were found not only uncorropted , but also to hav...

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

AGRICULTURAL . Selections tantl Comden—tloms . How to Fay for a Farm , Whenever a- person runs In debt for a farm , two conditions are necessary for its easy arid rapid payment , —judicious purchase , and an adequate working capital . The choice of a majority of purchasers appears to mil upon places that hive been run down ; the buildings old and poor , fences out of repair , arid laud in a low state of cultivation , arid perhaps , withal , an unfavorable location ; the chief attraction being the low price , such . places usually command . But those neglected farms are generally the dearest kind to buy . The yield from them the first , second , or even the third season , must of necessity be small , while there is a constant call for extra labor and money for repairs and permanent improvements . The purchaser has in fact assumed a three-fold burden—the renovation of the land , the reconstruction ot the buildings , and the liquidation of the debt ; either of which is quite sufficient...

VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

VETERINARY Food in Its Relation to the Organism , with , a Review ofliebig i Theory , and Its Inflnenoe on the Progress of Agriculture . Man naturally reasons about the phenomena which surround him . If men had not labored -to- ascertain the laws which regulate natural phenomena ,, and combine these laws so as to- form theories , the human race would have remained in a state ot savage audi brutish Ignorance . The sensation of hunger ,, and the prospect of starvation , produced that activity of the faculties , which was necessary iu order to form the rudljments of the arts- and sciences in a primitive state of society . As man becomes civilized ,, and the boundaries of science become enlarged , the- results of scientific Investigation are used to promote tbe general prosperity . In the most highly civilized states the chief temporal object of the great mass ot the people 1 is to obtain a sufficiency of food ; , a deficient supply will produce a revolution , —deficiency in quality wil...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

HORTICULTURAL Cultivation of Celery . : PETTO HENDERSON In his useful werk Gardening for Profit says that much useless labor is generally expended in the cultivation of celery . His mariner of treating the crop Is simple and easily practiced . Inetaad of sowing the seed in a hot-bed or cold frame as formerly , tt Is sown , in the open ground as soon as tbe soil is in a fit state to receive it , which t * generally about the first week of April , on a level piece of nice mellow soil that has been specially prepared by thorough pulverising and mixing with short stable manure . The bed being fined down by raking , lines are drawn about 8 or 9 inches apart , in beds of eight rows each , rubbing out every ninth line for an alley . The seed should be sown thinly , one ounce being sufficient for a bed twenty feet in length . When the plants are well up , the spaces between the rows should be hoed lightly and kept mellow and free from weeds . Mr . HENDERSON says that Celery may be planted o...

§* m » tk timmtt Bdlted by « t Pr « ttlcal Ho—« kee » o . Teach Boys to Sew , and Girls to Hoe . It is really a good plan to teach boys to sew , for they often wander for from their boyhood homes—their mothers and slstersi weary miles away , where they find no deft and nimble fingers to stitch np a rent , or sew on a button . Those boys who went into the army , who were familiar with tbe needle and thimble , fared much better than did those who could not take a stitch to save themselves from utter , nakedness . I know a young man , who , while in the army , was the favorite of officers and the pet and good-fellow of the regiment , simply because of his skill in the use of the needle , and for his good-natured willingness to help every ragged wretch who came to him with hideous , gaping wounds In trousers , blouse , or blanket . * Most men are ridiculously awkward with a needle and thimble . They call threading a needle , stringing it , and say— Tie a knot in the end of my string , v...

I am much pleased with it so far . It has a short , stiff straw , and is nearly two weeks earlier than the TreadweU wheat . I would be pleased to hear reports from others that have tried it .

Kentucky State Fair . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

Kentucky State Fair . The Tenth , Annual Fair of the Kentucky State Agricultural Society was held near Louisville last week , and notwithstanding the very unfavorable weather which prevailed during the greater part of the time , the result was very satisfactory . The Fair grounds are situated about six miles from the city on the Louisville , Cincinnati and Lexington Railroad . They are large , well arranged , and eligibly located . The buildings are convenient , and the-more important of them are very commodlouBThe amphitheater is a large , covered , circular structure , from every portion of which all that takes place , or is exhibited In the arena , is readily seen . The other buildings , for the various departments , also evidenced the exercise of skill in design , and . required much labor and no small expenditure of means .

- m » The Taix at Davenport , Iowa . It is doubtless known to many of your readers that the Annual Fairs of the Scott Co ., Iowa , Agricultural Society stand head and front of the County Agricultural Societies in the West ; offering more liberal premiums , and showing a larger daily attendance than perhaps any local Fair held In the Mississippi Valley . Being a believer in Agricultural Fairs as the very best means of disseminating Information as to the benefits to be derived from breeding improved farm stock , and where the best specimens of the various breeds can be obtained , —and where , if properly managed , all the departments of Agriculture and the Mechanic arts may be illustrated , we conculuded to visit a Scott Connty Fair , and upon taking a survey of the situation , find the society in possession of some over . thirty acres ot ground , ( owned In fee simple ) immediately adjoining the city limits , upon which they have erected a tight board fence ten feet high , an amphith...

• m • Is Poultry Profitable ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 19 September 1868

• m • Is Poultry Profitable ? Most farmers hereabouts keep some poultry ; not as a business , but because they must have them for their own use . The general Impression is that they are not profitable , yet few farmers make any estimates of the expense , and income . * I am not a fancy breeder , and tralhw of fowls . I know nothing oi Black Spanish , and Brahmas , and Cochins , nor have I time for any special care of them . - In short , I manage them—rather neglect to manage about as do farmers generally . My stock is limited to chickens ; I tried ducks , but soon had enough of them ; tried turkeys , result better , but not satisfactory . Of chickens I winter about fifty , exclusively large feather legs . ! The coop is in a corner of a barn , not open into the rest of the building , 7 feet by 16 feet , without floor , having one glass window , and a door to let them in , and out . The coop Is not regularly cleaned ; is only boarded up , but ls < in a warm place . They hav...
