[?] THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

©£>S THE FARMER, FARMYARD MANURE. Farmyard manure consists of the solid and liquid excrements of ani mals and the litter with which these substances are mixed and absorbed. Its value for fertilising purposes • de ;pends to a great extent upon the way in which it is handled in the-dung stead. Ib this respect (says a-writer in an English farm journal) its man agement too often leaves much to be desired, and, taking the country all through, enormous quantities of valu able plant nourishment are. lost. The atmosphere is the chief agent which produces the decomposition of the ammonia in the manure and causes it to escape, and therefore the air must be shut out of the manure heap as much as possible. The freer the air can. penetrate the heap the more rapid is the decomposition and consequent loss of ammonia; indeed, it may be said that a rational treat ment of the manure does not exist un less the heap is tightly compacted. "Keep it moist and tread it tight, And it 'will well your care...

COLIC DRENCH FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

COLIC DRENCH FOR HORSES. Almost e-very veterinary surgeon has his own special formula for colic drench, and thus the contents of the bottle varies according to the ideas of the prescriber, and, to some extent at least, according to what he conceives to be the requirements of the case. If you want a formula for a colic drink to keep by you for use in- emergencies, the following will be suitable:—Tinc ture of opium, 1 ounce; oil of turpen tine, 2 ounces; linseed oil, to 1 pint. Give this as it is, followed by a little warm gruel. Walk the horse about to prevent his rolling, rub the belly with a wisp, and, if necessary, re peat the drench in two hours, but not more than two doses should be given. Understand that it is not claimed that this recipe is better than any other. It may not even be the most suitable under all circumstances, but it is in expensive, easily procured, will keep good for any length of time if properly corked and sealed, and often cuts short an attack in its initial...

CATTLE TICK. The loss to cattle men in the United States through the cattle tick is esti mated by the Federal Government authorities to be £5,000,000 a year. During the last few years Congress has appropriated money to assist the States in cleaning out the dreaded dis ease among cattle. California has outstripped all other States in cleaning out the contagion. In 1907 there were some 40,000 odd square miles cleaned up in the United States, and 21,000 square miles of this territory was 'cleaned by California. In 1908 the whole State was under Federal quarantine by reason of Cali fornia not controlling the disease with in her boundary.

Reply to "Early to Bed" (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

Reply to "EarJy to Bed" (To the Editor.) Sir,—The above beading is a nom-de-plume, used by a meddle some individual in your last issue, wiiu complains of a singing and talking machine disturbing his peaceful dreams during the mid night hours. Being the owner of the "infernal machine," I desire to state that "Early to Bed" handles the truth very recklessly when he insinuates that "there are those who wish to get a little repose during tae midnight hours." As your corres pondent appears to be suffering from an attack of insomnia I would suggest that he take it neat before retiring, then the songs of the world's leading vocal artists might have a soothing effect on his troubled slumbers.

THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF-EARLY MOULTING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

THE POULTRY YAR§ ADVANTAGES OP-EARLY MOULTING. Those who have just commenced poultry keeping and have some last year's birds would do well to .realise •what those with experience have learnt, that a hen which moults be fore the winter is more valuable than 'a pullet, because she lays large eggs, and generally quite as many of them. •It is wise to induce hens to moult be •fore the winter wherever it can be ; arranged. :> When the hens shed their feathers ;in the warm .weather it is a saving of over 30 per cent., as the feathers vgrbw so much more quickly when the -weather is warm; not only that, but the birds are ready for the winter work, and it is not as difficult, to get them on to lay then aB it is when they have moulted late and have conse quently felt the strain more. Those poultry keepers who keep their fowls especially for producing eggs for the table and markets should get their birds in order for laying. Some people have an idea that it is too stimulating and leaves the ...

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. Amateur poultry-keepers must not expect to succeed and find everything to go on smoothly at the flrfet with out the aid of advice from some ex perienced person. This needs to be clearly understood. There Is.a great deal of knowledge to be acquired in the work of poultry-keeping, and there is no one who knows bo much that cannot still learn more, even af ter having had years of practical ex perience. Fanciers of wide experience are generally glad of hints from oth ers as to their ways and methods, and are ready and willing still to learn. Beginners, however, are often too self reliant, and will neither ask for ad vice nor yet take it if It is offered freely. The result is they make many blunders often before they have well begun, and thus blight their prospects of success completely. i. "A good beginning is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily into the work without thought and care at the start is only to pave the way to failure. ...

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 16 January 1914

ASHES FOR PIGS. It has been noted by pig-breeders that health and thrift are prolonged , to a great degree by allowing con stant access to ashes, and if salt be mixed with them, the effect is still more marked, and the composition is partaken of with greater relish. All feeders who have tried it pronounce the benefits unmistakable, and re sults most gratifying. Prof. Henry made some experiments In this line, and the following is what came of it: "Three pigs were taken at five months of age, and closely confined and fed maize-meal and hardwood ashes for six weeks. During this time they gained five and a-half pounds eacli per week, and consumed 28V2 pounds of maize-meal per weeK. For thirteen weeks thereafter they were fed no ashes whatever, and fell oft in the consumption of corn meal to the average of 19% pounds per week. Sev eral other experiments were tried, all showing the same approximate re sults." Feeding pigs is a sure paying crop, if good judgment in selection prevail, and e...
