HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

HORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN .-NO . 4 . CURRANTS . Nearly everybody is fond of currants . Eaten from the bushes , as grapes are from the vine , — -smothered in sugar , making a rich and beautiful ornament for the table , —spiced , as a relish for meats , —any way you choose to partake of them , they are good .

HORTICULTURAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

HORTICULTURAL NOTES THE TALKING VINE . —Here I am a neglected old grapevine , my master says I ain not worth the room I occupy . Did he talk thus of mo when we were both younger , and he plucked the great bunches from my branches to present to the blushing one by his side . Did he speakthus disrespectfully of me when the children s hearts were gladdened with my fruit ? Ah ! how he fondled me in my younger days , feeding me with good , wholesome food , keeping the grass and weeds away from roots and the superfluous branches off my body . He little knows when he says , If that vine dont do better next year Ill digit out how my roots are obliged to run hither and thither in search ot a scrap of food—even to reach to the kitchen door to get water and nutriment ; but stay—he listens , and Ill be bold and speak . Master , I ve fed you well for years as also your children , and what have you given me in return ? To be sure for a few years you fed me well , and did I not pay you back well f...

MONET AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

MONET AND COMMERCE IT-NANCE . TUESDAY EVBKIMO , Jan . 20 th , 1880 . The money market presents few changes from last week ; the demand for discount bas been light , supply of loanable funds at the banks large , and those who had good names or securities to offer were readily accommodated at 7 @ 8 per cent ,, and the outlook ls good for an easy market until grain begins to come forward freely , and there Is a general revival of business ln trade circles . In referring to the present ease In the money market it may be proper to state that between three and four million dollars was brought here at the close of 1879 to pay for wheat held here by New York speculators . This money has largely contributed to lessen the local demand for funds with which to carry the present enormous stocks of grain In store here . The country is also In a better condition than for years , and the Interior bankers who are usually large borrowers here in the Winter , at present have large balances with our ci...

QUERIES AND ANSWERS SALTPETER AS A MANURE . —Y . P . Yander , Crittenden county , Ky ., writes : Will you please tell me what virtue saltpeter has as a manure ? Will it pay to give $ 2 . 00 a barrel for the ore fresh from the cave ? How much per acre should be sown broadcast ? How much should be used per hil ! of corn or tobacco ? I have two saltpeter caves within ten miles of my tm . farm . It is said that the ore from them is B * Very strong . My grandfather made powder . from it in 1796 to use in hunting . We submitted these queries to Prof . Kedzie , of the Michigan Agricultural College , and received the following reply : — Saltpeter is an excellent fertilizer . The • commercial article contains about 42 per cent , of potash , and 12 }^ per cent , of nitrogen . As nitrogen is worth about twenty cents a pound , and potash five cents , a hundred pounds would be worth $ 4 . 60 . Can not tell how much a barrel of saltpeter would weigh .

THE FARMERS REVIEW OF THE SEASON . » ~** CONDITION OF WINTER WHEAT—THE CORN CROP — CATTLE AND HOGS — REPORTS FROM INDIANA , WISCONSIN , IOWA , MISSOURI , KANSAS , MINNESOTA , NEBRASKA AND ILLINOIS . The timothy and blue-grass has been growing for ten days . The fields look green . The Winter wheat so far has sustained no material injury . The weather has been so mild and Spring-like in Nebraska that the farmers have been plowing for a week . We can not expect such a condition to continue at this season of the year . With the bad roads in the country , and the grain blockade in Chicago , in connection with the strike , business has been dull . INDIANA . La Porte County . —Considerable soft corn this year , and loose on the cob . The crop does not come up to our former expectations . Very little old corn on hand . Most of the fat hogs are sold .

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-NO . 2 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-NO . 2 The reasoning by which it can be shown that a fair degree of attention to live stock should add ( o the profitableness of farming is conclusive . The experience of vast numbers of farmers has demonstrated its correctness . But it will not do to lay down an absolute rule that all farmers should breed or feed domestic animals . There are cases in which this would not be advisable . In exceptional circumstances it may be best for landowners and cul- ^ m ^ ators not to own or use any farm animals ; many more in which those used to do the needed work for the farm are all it is advisable to keep . In the vicinity of large citieB vegetable culture may be much more profitable than animal culture ; on some soils and in some localities the growth of grains may be most profitable . These cases , however , are exceptional ; just as there are exceptional circumstances in which exclusive attention to the animal is best . The percentage of American farmers for whom i...

CATTLE PRIZES AT THE FAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

CATTLE PRIZES AT THE FAIRS The Illinois State Board of Agriculture , at its recent annual meeting made some new departures from the management of the State Fair , worthy of separate mention . They have become convinced that it is not the mission of the Board to decide between the merits of the different breeds in each class of our domestic animals , but that it is their duty to encourage the breeding of all the improved races alike , and to leave it to the experience of the breeders , in the market value of the product of each , for the decision of the question . The prejudices of committeemen , either for or against a certain breed , very often give unjust decisions , Where two or more breeds compete for the same award . With such repeated results in the past , the Boardhavedecided that in the premium listfor the Fair of 1880 all breeds in each class will be placed on an equal basis , and be allowed to com pete only in their respective classes . It has been the usual custom in the ...

MARBLED BEEF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

MARBLED BEEF . Dr . Sprague , of the Western Farm Journal , writes as follows , upon this subject in his paper of Jan . 10 th .- In answer to an enquiry from a reader of our paper at our elbow , regarding the influence which different foods have in producing marbled flesh , we answer that fat is eliminated from any food which is worthy of the name , but the food itself has nothing-whatever to do with the question as to whether it will produce marbled flesh or not . During the process of digestion , fat is extracted from corn , oats , wheat , mill-feed , barley , roots , oil cake , or anj other thing that has nutriment in it . This fat enters the blood and is carried through the blood vessels to every part of the system , and true to nature , wherever it finds its proper resting place , which is in the cells , there it stops , and it does this just as handily if the beast be fed upon dry corn as upon oil cake or grass . Animals that have cellular tissue properly distributed through t...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

THE DAIRY WAS DAIRYING PROFITABLE IN 1879 ? At the Wisconsin Dairymen s Association meeting at Elkhorn , last week , Mr . Paville , of Delavan , gave an interesting address on the above topic , which we flnd condensed as follows : _ Dairying in the past has been a financial success , and history usually repeats itself . He felt warranted in saying that what has been done will repeat itself Indeed , the demand for our butter and cheese has been steadily increasing for several years , until now we have almost revolutionized the cheese trade of this country , and if we improve the quality of our goods for years to come as wo have in the past few years , I think it entirely reasonable for us to retain our English neighbors as good paying customers . And then , again , we are opening new markets . The low price of cheese for the past season ( the early part of it , I mean ) , has enabled some of our dealers in New York with but little risk to try Spain as a market , and I am told with th...

PROTECTING CHEESE FROM MOULD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

PROTECTING CHEESE FROM MOULD It is often difficult to protect cheese from mould , especially those that have cracked . The Wiener Zeitung gives Dr . Engilug s plan . He dissolves or digests a spoonful of bruised pepper , two tea-spoonfuls of salt , and the same quantity of boracic acid , in a quarter of a pint of brandy , for a few days , then filters the fluid through a cloth ; and dilutes with an equal quantity of water . Some of the preparation is introduced into the cracks of the cheese , by means of a feather , or , better , with a small glass syringe . If places which have been nibbled by mice are rubbed with this liquid , no mould will form . This will put jumpers to flight , and greatly assist in preventing any decay . —Live Stock Journal . PROF . SHELDON , in his work on dairy farming , assumes that 350 , 000 , 000 gallons of milk are annually made into cheese in England , and 550 , 000 , 000 gallons to butter . The quantity of the former product made is 126 , 000 tons , an...

VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880

VETERINARY RANDOM THOUGHTS ON THE FEET OF HORSES AND SH 0 EING-N 0 . 2 . A very distinguished surgeon asserts that when once the bulhous enlargement of the frog is removed , it never again is fully reproduced , and that this is the reason why we can not flnd it in many shod horses . It not only protects the navicular bone , but , to a certain exteut , the coffinjoint . Yet there is no part of the frog with which greater liberties are taken than with this . In fact , it generally undergoes a pretty essential whittling every time the horse has an introduction to the man ol knife and hammer . The bulb of tho toe once removed nature causes augmented secretion of horny surface to supply the deficiency . The secretion is very abundant , but nature is no match against edged tools—the faster it goes the better chance is there , by those who feel disposed to whittle , at every subsequent shoeing . Such extraordinary efforts at reproduction impairs the secretory function , and we then have a ...
