w m w . What of the Future [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
w m w . What of the Future By M . E . King . T HERE was always a disposition among farmers to either abandon or neglect any crop the price of which had a tendency to depreciate , and the tendency seems to shift from one crop or from one kind of stock to another without seriously considering the step to be taken . One year it may be wheat and corn , next yeiir sheep or hogs , dairying or beef . -growing : In most eases radical changes on and about the farm must be made to meet these never-ceasing changes . ; ; Only a few . years ego there sprang up what we might term a craze for dairying , and many farmers without any qualification for the business rushed : headlong into dairying and consequently many failures must be written . Now , since dairy products have fallen to a lower level , we hear of men abandoning dairying to go to growingjbeef or wool , on the plea that dairying has been overdone or that we have such a surplus of dairy products that prices have been forced below . a pay...

A Cream Separator Factory [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
A Cream Separator Factory W ITHIN the last month Mr . A . A . Lister , head of the great manufacturing house of B . A . Lister &amp; Co . ; Glasgow , Scotland , has been visiting the manufacturing plants of America . Among other places he spent some time at the cream separator manufactory in West Chester , Pa ., where the Sharpies separators are made . Mr . Lister is an extensive traveler and man of information on mechanical lines , his house being one of the largest manufacturers of cream separators in Europe . It was therefore a matter of great satisfaction to the Sharpies people to have him pronounce the Sharpies the • finest and most extensive cream separator manufactory he had ever been in . The tools in this factory are a marvel of ingenuity , and were a revelation to him , expert as he is . He stood for a long time watching a machine which , was making taper steel threaded sleeves . There was no workman at the machine ; it did not seem to need an attendant , but appar...
A New Food or Stock [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
A New Food or Stock By John E . Kehl , Consul . N both Denmark arid Sweden , for the past few years , experiments have been made with blood as an ingredient for animal feed . Similar experiments have been made in Germany , with apparent success . A patent has been issued for the manufacture of an animal-food mixture ¦ -- called . Kraftfutter ( strength feed ) or Blutmelassefutter ( blood molasses feed ) , of which the principal ingredients are fresh blood ( collected at the city slaughter houses ) , sugar refuse , and grain cheat , by which I mean screenings or blowings from wheat , barley , rye , oats , etc . Turf mull , or turf flour , has been tested , as a substitute for cheat , but not with success . This feed is prepared in three different mixtures—for horses , for cattle and swirie , and for poultry . The retail price is 6 marks ( $ 1 . 41 ) per 100 pounds . The preparation is not intended to be fed raw , but as a mixture with other regular feed—for instance , when the amount...

The Breeds of Swine [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
The Breeds of Swine IN the quarterly report of the Kansas Board of Agriculture , devoted to pork production , or the hog in America , Secretary Coburn- gives a terse history of or a comment on each of the breeds having any prominence in the United States . He says : The Poland-China breed originated in the Miami valley , in Butler and Warren counties , Ohio , between 1838 and 1840 , in the crossing of various ¦ families there known as Big China , Byfleld , Bedford and Irish Grazier , the . offspring being a large and somewhat coarse black-and-white-spotted swine called by , various names , for which a national convention of swine breeders , in 1872 , selected that pf PolandChina . These were crossed with imported Berkshires to give refinement and propensity to early fattening , and incidentally they acquired much of the Berkshires conformation , black color , and white markings . The progress made . in that region and at that time was . iri a measure due to the nearness to Cincinnat...
Importing Live Hogs Into France [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Importing Live Hogs Into France I N reply to an inquiry from Nebraska , 1 , Consul-General Gowdy sends the following from Paris : There are rio laws or regulations which prohibit the importation of live hogs into France from the United States ; but the importation of live cattle , such as cows , bulls , or steers , from the latter country is absolutely prohibited . The animals , upon arrival , are subjected to a sanitary examination by one . of the official veterinary surgeons detailed for the purpose , and if found healthy are : alio wed to enter the country ; but if any contagious disease is detected , the animal is killed at once and the others put under strict surveillance . The expenses attending the landing of hogs at Havre can be considered as about one franc ( 19 . 3 cents ) per head . This amount includes the different port charges , such as droit de statistique , etc ., weighing at the custom-house , sanitary inspection , etc . In addition to the above there is a charge of...
Experimental Farming [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Experimental Farming The Experiment . Warm at Southern : Pines , and What it . Ts Doing for the Soil Tiller . By G . H . Turner . IT is a well established fact that of all the elementary substances that go to make up a really fertile soil , none are so completely exhausted as that it becomes necessary or essential that they shall be artificially added , in order to best results in the way of . profitable crop production , excent phosphoric acid , potash , and in some instances , lime , nitrogen and humus . We put the nitrogen and . humus last , not heconse they are not equally necessary , valuable and important , and in fact , indispensable , with the other elementary substances above named , but because it is entirely unnecessary-for the soil tiller to spend his hard earned ) money in the purchase of either one of these ; they can both be raised right at home far cheaper than they can possibly be purchased . These three substances—nitrogen , phosphoric acid and notash—enter to a gr...

Nature Study [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Nature Study By John W . Lloyd . T HERE is more or less misconception as to what nature study really is . - Some have , the idea that it is the teaching of science as a regular part of the . schobl curriculum , and that in order to teach it-a person must have had considerable training in the natural sciences . The truth is , nature study is not the teaching of science at all . It is simply observing the common things in nature , and trying to understand them . An apple-twig with its leafbuds and fruit-buds , a leaf , a flower , a wormy apple , a burr from a burdock , a maple seed with its wing , a grasshopper , a June bug , a smooth pebble from the brook—these are a few of the objects suitable for nature study . It Is . - primarily the pupil s own study . The teacher does not : impart information , but helps the pupil to see with his own eyes and reason with his own mind . Where it is possible—as it is in the countrv— it is best to have the pupils collect and bring to school the obj...

The Hardiness of Trees [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
The Hardiness of Trees By W . L . Hall . THE Department of Horticulture , of the Kansas State University , has for several years been &lt; co-operating with the Division of Forestry of the Department of Agriculture in testing the hardiness of trees produced from seeds sent from various sections of the country ,. north and south , east and west . -The seeds , were planted in plats having the same soil and exposure and . have been , subjected to tlie same conditions . March 7 , -, 1898 , notes were made on the effects ; of the winter upon the trees and some striking facts were revealed . As a rule no injury was to be noted from the winter on . trees grown from seed sent from states either north or west of this point . On the other hand , trees from seed sent m from points southeast-of this were very generally injured from the cold . The injury varied with both the species of trees and the location . Black walnut showed the greatest injury of any species and was most affected w...
Cauliflower Culture [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Cauliflower Culture T HERE is a good profit in growing cauliflowers for market if the conditions are all right , but with the culture often given them , they are not a reliable crop . In growing cauliflowers for sale , the-flrst thing to . be considered is a market for these luxuries . The crop is not a staple one , like some which are considered necessaries of life , and you must findpeople who want them , and are able to buy them . In most large villages there is a sufficient number of people who want them to make a market for a few thousand heads . In some seasons , and at some times in the year , there is a good . profit in growing them to ship , to dealers in the cities , but the . most money , is made by retailing them to villages , where 1 no one is growing them , and therefore no competition . It-is not best to economize too much in purchasing seeds . The higher priced strains of white cauliflowers , where * the type has become established by careful selection for several ye...
Preparing , the Soil for the Garden [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 23 February 1899
Preparing , the Soil for the Garden TT is rather cold at this writing to be 1 thinking about the actual preparation of the soil- foi- the garden ,, yet this cold persuades , many from deing things : out . of doors that : are not necessary for the comfort and welfare of the stock and gives time for reading and planning for future work . Soil that will produce a good crop of corn will make a good garden spot if properly fertilized and thoroughly cultivated . If the ground was heavily manured last fall and plowed it will be ready for planting • this spring as soon as it can be plowed . It may be plowed at one time and that portion that is not used for early crops may be gone over with the harrow of ten enough till needed for later crops to keep weeds down and have the soil in good tilth when needed . If the garden was not plowed last fall plow . as early this spring as possible , then cover heavily , with well rotted manure and harrow well ., The . better the plowing Is done and the mo...
