HORTICULTURAL , [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

HORTICULTURAL , IN THE GARDEN—No . 24 . HINTS FOR PALL WORK . After the leaves fall is a good time to prune currants and gooseberries . Because there are a score or more of new and healthy canes , is no reason why all of them should be left to grow . It pays better to cut out half of them . Those which are left will be enough stronger next year to make up for those removed , and the fruit will be much finer . Remove every branch which shows signs ot decay . Aim , always , in the cultivation of these fruits , to keep the bearing branches in a high state of health . This you can not do unless you prune regularly and closely . If left to take care of themselves , currant and gooseberry bushes soon become thickets in which worms will harbor ; the blight and mildew so often complained of will attack them , because it is my opinion the thick growth interferes with a free circulation of light and air , and the many canes springing from the same root will so draw upon the vitality of them t...

J . Parr , purchased of the same a capital pair of young Suffolks . These gentlemen are enthuelastic breeders , and will make their mark in this line . THE live stock exhibitions at the fairs title Fall are most excellent . The spirit of improvement is abroad and at work in earnest . This is the case with all the races of domestic animals .

QUERIES AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

QUERIES AND ANSWERS | QUERY : HYDROPHOBIA . —J . B , Bu ck Valley , Penn ., asks the FARMERS REVIEW to explain , 1 st . What is the true cause of hydrophobia ? 2 d . How long after stock are bitten by a mad dog will it be until they go mad ? 3 d . Do all kinds of stock act the same when mad ? 4 th . How long after becoming mad do they live ? ANSWER : 1 st . Though many strong arguments have been set forth in support of the numerous theories advanced by scientists on this subject , yet nothing definite is known of the true nature of the virus that produces hydrophobia . 2 d . The period of incubation is very uncertain—that is , the time from which the virus enters the system until the disease becomes developed . It may become developed any time after nine days—perhaps not in years—which of course will depend on circumstances . Certain temperaments are peculiarly susceptible when exposed . The influence which the mind has over the body has , no doubt , much to do with the development ...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 28 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 28 . THE HORSE . The horse ranks first among farm animals in beauty , speed and intelligence . It is used almost exclusively for labor—in drawing or carrying burdens ; although a considerable of this labor is more for the amusement of men than for the accomplishment ot practically useful ends . The skin is valuable , and , in some countries , the flesh and milk are used for food . The horse was domesticated in the early history of the world , and has been found in many countries ; differing greatly in form and qualities , the variations having been caused by differences in climate , food , care and by selection in breeding . The horse is not a native of America . All we possess , including the so-called wild horses , are descended from those introduced since the discovery of the continent by Europeans . It is known that Columbus brought horses in 1493 . At different times the Spaniards made importations , and from these the horses of Mexico and the mustang...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

THE DAIRY THE CURING OF CHEESE . In what does the curing process in cheese consist ? This is a question which has vexed the students of the sciences underlying the dairy practice considerably . A demonstration has not yet been secured . There is , however , in the flrst annual report of the Cornell University Experimental Station , New York State , an article by Prof . S . M . Babcock , giving experiments in regard to curing cheese . It opens by saying : A new cheese , when taken from the press , is composed , essentially , of the same constituents as the milk from which it was made , the chief difference being that the cheese contains less water ; of course , the more soluble parts of the milk , as the sugar and albumen , are largely removed with the water . The small amount of milk sugar retained by the curd is usually at this time converted into lactic acid . The casein is now tough and insoluble , and the cheese has no marked flavor or odor . This , however , is not long the cas...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

THE POULTRY YARD DUNG-HILL FOWLS . These fowls have long been considered in many quarters , by those who know little or nothing about the more valuable qualities and traits of the modern improved race of poultry , to be good enough on the farm . This is a great mistake ! No sort of live stock is good enough for either farmer or poulterer , nowadays , that is not of the better or best quality to be had . It cost no more , on the average , to feed prime poultry—per head—than it does to maintain the scrubs . Indeed , we know many small farmers who adhere to the old usage Of breeding the worn-out barn-yard varieties that their grandsires cultivated ( or rather tolerated ) around the homestead , who throw away more good grain every year , upon a given number of these dunghill cormorants , than would liberally feed the same number of good Cochins , or Brakmas or Plymouth Rocks . The latter are much heavier , finer and as hardy ; they lay many more and richer , larger eggs ; they come to m...

PROMOTING AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

PROMOTING AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE , The Boston Daily Advertiser , of Aug . 31 , says that in 1879 a few gentlemen took advantage of the meeting of the American Pomological Society in Rochester , N . Y ., to meet in consultation over the needs of agriculture , and to devise means for extending this interest so as to occupy the intellectual field , and thus to place it on a parity witti those other pursuits whicb are recognized as closely dependent upon science . They recognized the needs of an educated public sentiment , in order to secure progress in agricultural pursuits , and were aware that the hope of agricultural progress was in enlisting the efforts and the sympathy of the intellectual classes . The preliminaries of an association were formed , whose objects , in the words of the call , shall be the promotion of agriculture by fostering investigation in science applied to agriculture . This circular continues as follows : For the accomplishment of this object its members shall me...

REPORT OF MESSRS . REED AND PELL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 16 September 1880

REPORT OF MESSRS . REED AND PELL At last we have a rather elaborate synopsis ot the report of the English agricultural commissioners who came to this country in 1879 , for the purpose of enlightening the British public regarding our agricultural resources . They say that they naturally concluded to spend the greater portion of the brief time at their disposal on the plains and farms on the States and territories watered b y the tributaies of the Missouri and Mississippi . It is here that agricultural enterprise is most vigorously developed with a display of activity and energy beyond comprehension . A restlessness and motion * stir the whole body of emigrants , and direct them further west to the occupation of new territory . They express that influence themselves by a common saying that if hell lay in the West they would cross heaven to reach it . The truth is , they are not cultivators , but at present only breakers of the soil ; when no virgin land is left to exhaust , and not an...
