Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Poultry and Bees The Best Table Fowls As a matter of fact the flesh of one well-cared-for chicken or turkey is as good as that of another . It is doubtful if the most particular . epicure could ever tell whether a certain piece had come from a Plymouth Rock or a pit game as far as the taste of the flesh is concerned . What we mean by the best table fowl is that one which has the heaviest weight of meat on those portions of the body which are favorite cuts . The breast and thighs must be heavy in a good table fowl in proportion to the remainder of the body . In order to have thick breast meat and big thighs these muscles must be used by the fowl . In other words the flyer and scratcher will prove to be the best table fowl , for their lively habits give the muscles of the legs and breast work to do that renders them Arm and fine , instead of leaving them flabby and full of loose tissue in the shape of fat . This is the reason that all the game classes furnish good table fowls and is w...

Clipping Wings [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Clipping Wings The most convenient way to keep fowls from flying over fences is to clip one of their wings , but if this is not properly done the clipping disfigures the bird . The proper way to clip a fowl is to spread one of its wings as widely as possible and clip off the wide side of the primary or pinion feathers close to the shaft . Do this with one wing only and when the bird tries to fly its wings will not balance and it cannot fly over an ordinary fence . By clipping off the wide side of the feathers only the clipping does not show when the wing is folded in its natural position against the side . Clipping notches in the wing feathers is also a good way to mark a fowl if identification is only to be desired for a short time . It will not do for a permanent mark , as the feathers are renewed every year .

Diseases [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Diseases A friend who keeps poultry suggests that not enough is said in this department concerning the diseases of fowls . The truth is that this is a matter on which we have very limited information . We learned a good many years ago that disease is about the most unnecessary thing ever found in a poultry yard . Except a stray case of roup we have not had a sick hen in ten years where the trouble could not be traced directly to some carelessness in care or feeding , and usually roup is distinctly traceable to carelessness . Roup , gapes , cholera , indigestion and apoplexy are about the only diseases that poultry keepers must contend with . Gapes indicates the presence of a parasite which no foresight could have pre vented , but once its presence is known it may be circumvented by keeping the chicks off the grass when it is wet with rain or dew . Every other affliction named above may be prevented by using proper care in feeding and housing . Feed only good sound feed , in such qua...

Hotels as Poultry Buyers [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Hotels as Poultry Buyers A little investigation will convince any one that hotels are the poorest people in the world to depend on for a market for superior poultry or strictly fresh eggs . The stewards of hotels , speaking broadly , buy where they can get their food stuffs the cheapest . They take limed eggs as quickly as those laid the day before , if the price makes it an object for them to do so , and hotels are the largest patrons of the cold storage houses for both poultry and eggs . Not long ago the writer got poached eggs at a first-class hotel which could not have been less than six months old . They tasted musty and evidently had been kept in cold storage for some time , or else had been limed and not well covered . The best customers for first-class poultry products of any kind are the well-to-do people who want to know that the food they eat is of the best . There are many among the people of any city who are particular in this matter . They are not the very rich either ...

Pure Breeds for Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Pure Breeds for Farmers One of our most prominent exchanges advises farmers not to breed pure-bred poultry , as the native stock is good enough for a farmer . -In another column the same paper finds fault with farmers for not improving their cattle when purebred sires are so common and to be bcught at comparatively low prices when we consider the added profit keeping pure-bred cattle , or if not pure breeds at least those that are well graded up . No doubt the gentleman who selects the reading matter for that paper is somewhat behind the times in the matter of , poultry breeding or looks upon it as a small matter compared with the breeding of cattle . Outside the great range territory where it is cattle or sheep or nothing , it is entirely safe to say that the returns from the poultry of the average farm is larger than that from any one kind of stock kept on the farm . Even the very defective reports that we can get from official sources make this plain , and no well-posted man disp...

Growth of Ducks and Chickens [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Growth of Ducks and Chickens P . H . Jacobs , editor of The Poultry Keeper , made some experiments to determine just how fast young ducks and chickens grow and what they cost to the pound . The young birds were put in lots of ten and fed exactly the same kind of feed except during the first week . At the end of the first week from hatching the ducks weighed 3 % ounces each ; second week , 8 % ounces ; third week , 14 ounces ; fourth week , 1 pound 6 ounces ; fifth week , 2 pounds ; sixth week , 2 pounds 10 ounces ; seventh week , 3 pounds 8 ounces ; eighth week , 4 pounds 4 ounces . The feed was mashed potatoes thickened with bran , cornmeal and ground oats , the ground grain being mixed with the potatoes when they were hot and all mashed together . This was given three times a day and once a day they were given all the chopped grass and clover they would eat . They were given plenty of water to drink , but none to bathe in . Some of the ducks were heavier than others , but the aver...

Handling Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Handling Bees A good many people do not keep bees because they have a notion that bees do not like them . It has been pretty well established that in the matter of likes and dislikes everybody is alike to bees . Some men are more adept at handling them than others , but the most successful bee-keeper is the one who wears a veil all the time and goes among the bees with a calm determination not to strike wildly at the air if one of the colony begins to buzz about his ears . Bees are not at all averse to a hostile declaration and are ready at all times to sacrifice themselves in a fight with any animate being . The only satisfaction a man ban get in a fight with a bee is that the insect dies soon after making its thrust , but this is not sufficient to soothe the pain . The best way to handle bees as well as men is to take advantage of their weak spots . Some men and all bees are in the best condition to manipulate when they are approached through their stomachs . Men are so constitute...

POULTRY AND BEE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

POULTRY AND BEE NOTES There is no place where old hens can be so profitably used as on the home table . They do not bring a good price in market , but can be made delicious eating at home by being shut up and fed all the corn and water they can consume for ten days or two weeks . They will become very fat and tender in that time . Ducks are the most , profitable of any kind of poultry when properly handled . The eggs should be used for hatching and the young ducks sold when ten weeks old . At that age they are worth $ 1 a pair in Chicago and frequently twice that much in Eastern cities . Toulouse and Embden geese are much more profitable than the common native sort . They grow to great size and are always sold by the pound , while the common kind sell by the pair . Small turkeys well fatted bring a better price than large ones that look more bony .

TOLD IN A LINE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

TOLD IN A LINE The board of directors of the Transmississippi exposition has passed a set of resolutions formally inviting the president , cabinet , and other dignitaries to attend the peace jubilee Oct . 10 to 15 . An invitation was also extended to the Prince of Wales to be present on that occasion as a ward of appreciation of the feelings of friendship existing between the United States and Great Britain . President McKinley has instructed Admiral Sampson that the first act of Spain s evacuation of Cuba must be the surrender of Morro Castle and the keys to the mines in Havana harbor . The admiral was also informed that the only question to be discussed by the commissioners is the removal of portable government property and the carrying home of Spanish soldiers . Coincident with the West Indian sugar conference , to assemble at Barbadoes September 3 , for the purpose of protesting against a sacrifice of the colonies , Jamaica is preparing a plebiscite to the British parliament , r...

Thus is solved one of the problems which promised to give great concern , perhaps an almost endless amount of trouble , to the administration . It clears the way for us in many directions , while the implied sentiment that the Filipinos are not satisfied with Spain s rule must convince the Spanish members of the Paris peace commission of the utter hopelessness of continuing the struggle against the intrepid natives , determined as they are to wrest their islands from Spanish misrule and oppression . That the Filipinos are a worthy people , calculated soon , under the fostering care of democratic institutions , to assume self-government , is recognized by all who know them and realize ho...

Sinttle-Tax Assessment Plan [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Sinttle-Tax Assessment Plan To the Editor : —Will some single tax man explain how the single taxers would tax or assess the property mentioned below : 1 . , A farm of eighty acres , which was bought five years ago for $ 400 , being then wild land , and on which there has since been done $ 1 , 500 worth of workclearing and removing grubs and stones and draining , and on which has been built dwellings , house , barn and well , costing $ 1 , 800 . Incidentally , I may say that the price this land , including improvements and buildings , will bring is about • $ 3 , 000 to $ 3 , 200—not more than the last figures . 2 . A city lot , 51 x 140 feet , sold four years ago for $ 800 ; the purchaser has since erected on it a building costing $ 10 , 000 . The building is bringing in to him as rents a net income of 6 per cent on his investment . He can sell the building and lot for about $ 10 , 800 , but no more . A similar , lot adjoining is offered for $ 800 . What I desire to know is how such ...

Source and Object of Unrest [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 27 August 1898

Source and Object of Unrest To the Editor : —In reply to M . W . Cook , in the Farmers Forum department of The Voice , I would say that the unrest spoken of is not confined to the United States or to any certain locality , but is general throughout all civilized and enlightened nations of earth ; and the more enlightened , it would seem , the greater this unrest . We are living in the most enlightened age of the world since its existence . Daniel foresaw this time and said men should run to and fro and knowledge should be increased , and in connection with this increase of knowledge he speaks of a great calamity which is to come upon the earth ; a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation ( Dan . 12 ) . The seeds of destruction were already sown , the evils already existed to produce this unrest , but until the increase of light and knowledge the masses were not able to discover those evils , though already in existence . The blind man cannot see the objects by whic...
