A Retaliatory Measure . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
A Retaliatory Measure . A bill has been introduced in the United States Senate providing for the thorough inspection of salted pork and bacon intended for exportation . The bill further provides that the President shall have power to exclude by proclamation the products of any foreign State , which by unjust discrimination prohibits the importation of any of our products . It prevents the importation into the United States of any adulterated or unwholesome food , vinous , spirituous or malt liquor * , adulterated or mixed with any poisonous or noxious chemicals , drugs or other ingredients injurious to health . The above is very sweeping in its character , and the terms adulterated and wholesome leave wide doors open for the rejection of anything that may come from European ports , especially when it is known that there are but few articles of commerce that are absolutely pure . But the latter part of the bill is applicable to our own products as well as those produced abroad . When...
Our New Cover . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Our New Cover . Our face will hereafter be more familiar , and we believe no one will find fault with the handsome new cover which we have adopted as a permanent feature of the FARM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE in the future . The design is not easily surpassed , and the color is bright . Although the outer appearance has received such careful consideration , with the view of making it attractive , our object is to make that which it ornaments still more agreeable and acceptable to our readers , as our pages will always contain the fullest and most complete information pertaining to all matters connected with our mission .
Still More Improvement . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Still More Improvement . The readers of the FARM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE will find still further improvement in this number . We have enlarged it again , not by encumbering you with superfluous paper , but by reducing the size of the type , in order to give the greatest amount of reading matter that onr space will allow . And , in order that we may make it even more attractive and readable we have procured new type , of plain face , and improved the paper in many different ways . No journal of its kind now published can boast of a larger circulation than ours , nor of a greater number of complimentary letters from advertisers and readers than we . The transition from one stage to another , in our onward march , has been so complete and nuCrked as to create surprise and wonder on the part of all who have been accustomed to looking forward to each succeeding copy , and still we find room for improvement . Complete as we have apparently made this number , the next will bo better . The mag...

The Holstein Breeder s Meeting . We are in receipt of a copy of the proceedings of the American Holstein Breeders Association , which came too late for detailed publication , but i l is pleasant to note that quite a large number of new members have been added , and the Association is in a very flourishing condition . The President , Mi 13 . A . Powell reported that the Holsteh . s had made great advancement during the past year and tint the membership was growint . and the herd record rapidly increasing The Holsteins are coming to the front as buttei . beef , and family cattle , one advantage in their lavor for family purposes , being that the cream separates from the milk slowly . It was ottered to refuse to record any animal having a red spot or spots of four inches or more in diameter , which has been left to the decision of an expert committee . The names of animals cannot be used further than the first generation unless in continuation . The form of the certificate oi register ...
The New £ 1 Dorado . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
The New £ 1 Dorado . Glowmg accounts arc now being published respecting the discovery of gold in the Ceur dAlene region , tho object being to induce parties to visit that country under the delusion that fortunes can be secured easily and in a short time . The whole thing looks as it the intention was tc get the adventurous gold seekers to buy tickets on the railroad , which would not only be . i source ol profit of itself , but would be followed bv it ? corresponding amount of freight and other traffic incidental to the influx of settlers into n new region . As to the fortunes to be made , the settlers must combat starvation , cold and suffering iu a hundred shapes . The bones of the majority will bleach in the gulches or be dragged to the dens of the wild beasts . At every turn danger will stare them m the face , while the pistol and the liowie knife will arbitrate all difficulties . When the mixed farce and tragedy is over , the misguided settlers that are left will wend their wea...
What our Seedsmen Have Done . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
What our Seedsmen Have Done . Inventors have all the advantages of the patent laws for the protection of their genius and industry , but they are favored greatly as compared with our seedsmen , who introduce , for the benefit of all , new varieties of fruits and vegetables , each succeeding year witnessing improvement very marked and distinct from that of previous periods , but the seedsmen have no protection for their interests in any manner . What our originators have done for us in the way of the introduction of new varieties cannot be estimated , as the productions of our country have been more than doubled through their efforts . It is no easy matter to make an addition to our list of fruits , vegetables , and flowers . Patience and an unlimited series of experiments are necessary , the failures being very numerous before a single advantage can be gained . Time and capital must be employed , and often , after years of patient toil and unflagging industry the seedsman is unable ...
Whom We Advertise . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Whom We Advertise . We receive daily applications for space in our advertising columns from many persons whom we are compelled to refuse . No doubt our large circulation of over 150 , 000 copies may be a tempting inducement to all , but there is a duty incumbent upon us to those who arc already placed upon our lists , and that is to avoid receiving any advertisement from persons not known to be strictly firstclass and reliable in every respect . We now have a class of advertisers that can compare favorably with those of any other paper of this kind now published , and who , having attained a reputation for fair dealing , are not disposed to have their advertisements displayed in company with those who resort to the columns of the agricultural papers for other purposes than those which they profess to have in view . With the intention to constantly improve our journal in its literature , we are at the same time careful to preserve the purity of its advertising columns , no one being ...
American Fork Again . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
American Fork Again . As a proof that France and Germany have used the trichinosis in meat as a pretext for preventIn . , our pork entering their ports , it may be stated that England consumes eight times as much American pork as France without complaint , while Belgium , with a much smaller population , consumes nearly twice as much , anil yet no cases have occurred in which injury has occurred from its use . But the rule will not always work one way , for now it appears that with the gates barred against our meats the Germans are eating their own pork with disastrous effects , and are looking around for some one upon whom to rest the blame . France buys largely of German pork , and it is easy to place the source of her difficulty in that direction . It would not be a surprise if they quarreled over pork and embargoed each other . It is a well-known fact that the French and Germans are in the habit of eating raw ham . It is a common dish in ever . town , village and hamlet in both ...
Capital Invested In the Dairy . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Capital Invested In the Dairy . But few have any idea of tho magnitude of the dairy interests of this country , and no better idea can be given than to State that it requires 15 , 000 , 000 cows to supply the demand for milk and its products In this sountry , and that there are invested in the dairying business of tho United States over ; $ 2 , 000 , 000 , 000 . an amount nearly double the capital Invested in banking and other commercial industries It requires tho cultivation of over 00 , 000 , 000 acres of land to furnish food for the above number of cows . More than $ 200 , 000 , 000 is invested in dairy machinery and implements alone . The men employed in dairying occupations number 700 . 000 , and 1 , 000 , 000 horses are necessary The cows and horses consume annually 30 , 000 , 000 tons of hay , 90 , 000 , 000 bushels of corn meal and the same amount of oat meal , 275 . 000 , 000 bushels of oats , 2 , 000 , 000 bushels of bran , and 30 , 000 ,- 000 bushels of corn , to say noth...
Among the Careless . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Among the Careless . Several correspondents have written to us to know if we did really receive letters with money in them that had no name or address signed to them . Yes , we have , and some weeks we receive as high as fifty letters that we cannot tell who wrote them or what State they are from , much less the postofflce . We experience the most difficulty from persons dating their letters anil giving postofflce addresses , and no State . J . G . PUTNAM sends us $ 1 for a year s subscription ; does not give any address at all . JOHN CBRISTIANSON and Alfred Christiansen sends us one dollar and gives postofflce address as Cumberland . We can do nothing with it , as there are twenty-five or thirty Cranberlands iu the United States and Canadas . , H . T . CONKUN sends us fl . and dates his letter Southampton ; no State address . We are unable to tell what State he lives in , as about half the States have a Southampton . S . H . CRIPPEN sends us 10 cents and dates his letter Westfield ...
A Test of the Incubators . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
A Test of the Incubators . There are a great many incubators on the market , but as to which is the more reliable is a question not easily answered , although such inquiries come to us daily In order to assist the manufacturers in introducing their incubators , as well as for the benefit of our readers , wo have invited all those who have incubators for sale to assist us bv forwarding one of their machines « o this office , as we propose to operate them for the purpose of publishing the records of the results monthly .

Every incubator sent to us will be labeled with the name of the manufacturer and his address , its capacity , and circulars will be attached iu order to expla...
Changes in the Homestead Law . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
Changes in the Homestead Law . The Senate lias a committee on public lands , and the committee have had business enough to occupy its attention all the year if it would con - fine itself to the matters pertaining to the wholesale seizure of public lands by the European nobility , who , having enslaved the rural population in their native lands , are reaching out for new fields and empires in which to further augment their wealth at the expense of those who should own and cultivate the soil themselves , but the committee has overlooked such important matters , and has entered upon the task of amending the Homestead act . It recommends that the homesteader have a year instead of six months in order to prepare a home on his claim , and to a casual observer this seems very fair , but the apparent show ot virtue and interest for the protection of tlie settler is explained away by the appended provisions , wliich make it obligatory on thesettlerto prepare a given area for planting and com...
ARE YOU GOING FISHING ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 April 1884
ARE YOU GOING FISHING ? When the advertisement of tho Chicago Gun and Cutlery Co ., which appears on last cover page of this issue was handed in , we read it and was so impressed with their offer No . 4 that we called at their store to examine it and the result was we ordered it for our own use . We have this to say to our readers regarding the Chicago Gnu and Cutlery Co ., they area perfectly reliable firm , carrying the most complete line of Fishing Tackle , guns , cutlery , etc , in the city , and we believe that they will fulflU every promise they make in their advertisement . The offers No . 1 - , 3 and 4 which will be found in their advertisement are all tempting to anglers . The goods are just as represented and will be found entirely satisfactory to all ordering them . We can say that we are more than pleased with The Anglers Royal Outfit and can hardly conceive how these gentlemen can offer so much of such a quality for tlie money . It is just the season of the year when a ...
