Poultry Fences , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Poultry Fences , One of the principal drawbacks in raising poultry in yards is the cost of the fences . Galvanized wire is an excellent material , but it allows no protection in winter from the winds . Boards are too expensive in some sections , and palings or pickets are not always obtainable . A good and cheap fence may be made of lath , and if rightly constructed will last for two or three years . A lath fence six feet high may be made by placing the posts eight feet apart , using three strips running from post to post , for the purpose of holding the lath . If preferred , a one-foot board may be used in place of the bottom strip . Place the second ( or middle ) strip two feet above the bottom one , and nail half laths to the two strips , cutting four-foot laths in two pieces for that purpose . This will make the two feet of fence at the bottom strong enough to resist considerable pressure , keeping off dogs , and even larger animals . The third strip should be three feet above t...
APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
APIARY . Bees in Honey Boxes . To get bees out of honey boxes is often a source of trouble , especially those of the old-fashioned kind used , by many farmers who keep but a few swarms . A correspondent of the American Bee Journal tells how to do this as follows : Take an ordinary box about three feet long and twenty inches wide , and put glass in the bottom ; it need not be all glass , two or three small panes will do , but it will be better if it extends almost the entire length in the center of the bottom of the box . Any old pieces of glass may be used . Sink the glass a little into the bottom of the box , and now nail strips of lath inside on the bottom , edgewise , about four inches apart and crosswise of the box . Make a neat-fit-ting cover without hinges , and then put the box up two feet high by resting its ends on something , or legs may be put under it . Put the boxes or crates of honey in on the strips of lath , holes downward , when ihe bees will see the light and crawl...

MOELLA-NEOITS , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
MOELLA-NEOITS , Applied Science . A MINERS lamp has been invented that stands for two hours an air current of 860 miles an hour , while former lamps have resisted only from two to ten seconds . ACCORDING to a German histiologist , there are in the cerebral mass 300 , 000 , 000 nerve-cells , each an independent organism and microscopic brain . Of these nerve-cells he estimates that 5 , 000 , 000 die every day , and that every sixty days the brain is replaced . A NUMBER of dogs were recently dosed with morphine until they became insensible , tha object being to determine what drug would act most rapidly as an antidote . It was found that hypodermic injections of theine neutralized the narcotic almost instantly , although it was employed only after the heart had ceased to beat . Caffeine had a considerable anti-narcotio power , but it was not equal to the principle derived from tea . A NOTED statistician , Edward Atkinson , insists that there is an abundance of room yet in this world ....

. Complaints . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
. Complaints . Wo are receiving * complaints from subscribers who have not received their papers regularly , and are supplying * missing numbers free as fast as called for , and will continue to do so as long as the supply lasts . When we purchased this paper we found the mail list in very bad shape , and it is costing us hundreds of dollars to fix it as it should be . All the letters from those subscribers who renewed under the fifty cents offer , made by the former publisher , were tied up in bundles and thrown upon the shelves , no other attention having been paid to them except to take out the money . As fast as these names can be compared with the old list and their time extended , we are setting them up in type , and if these subscribers will have patience a short time longer , they will find due credit given after theirnames on the address label attached to their paper . These labels will indicate the time when their subscription expires . We are experienced publishers , and ...

The Nation ' s Dead . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
The Nation s Dead . The shining mark is again one in highest official station . As we write the bells are tolling in Indianapolis for its chief citizen . Members of the Cabinet , Senators , Governors of States and representative men of distinction are there to do the last honors to Vice-President Hendricks . President Cleveland was reluctant to give up his purpose to attend the funeral . But even the Indianapolis papers , which would naturally regard human life as safe in that city as anywhere , and bo actuated with a desire to have the pageant as imposing as possible , advised against the President s coming . Since the nations sad experience with assassins , be they insane or simply diabolical , the public in general dread any unnecessary exposure of the Chief Magistrate . And as it is not to be supposed that the presence of the President could bring any lasting comfort to the bereaved widow , or better attest to the country tho profound respect in which he holds the memory of his ...

* Renew Your Subscription . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
* Renew Your Subscription . When we took possession of this paper we found the mail list , though satisfactory as to numbers and character of tho subscribers , in such confusion that it is impossible to tell , just yet , whose subscription has expired and whose has not . So , for fear of making a mistake and stopping somebodys paper which ought not to be stopped , we will send to all until we can get this list in proper shape , when all whose subscriptions have expired will be notified . In the meantime we hope you will send in your renewals at once , so that you will get the paper continuously , without losing a number . The paper has always been a good one , and well worth the subscription price so far as its contents were concerned , but we are going not only to convert it into a newsy Weekly , but , also , greatly to improve it in other ways . The shortcomings of the former publisher , in his premium distribution , should not be charged to our account , or allowed to prejudice t...
Another Cabinet Officer . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Another Cabinet Officer . The figures produced by Commissioner Colman in several of his carefully prepared and valuable addresses in Chicago , afford the true basis for demanding that the department of agriculture be made a cabinet position . With $ 1 , 200 , 000 , 000 in cattle and $ 1 , 300 , 000 , 000 in horses , sheep and swine , and upwards of $ 2 , 200 , 000 , 000 , m the other branches of agriculture proper it would seem that the magnitude and importance of the interests involved are such as to make the demand reasonable Would it not be difficult to show that the various material interests committed to the care of the Secretary of the Intern 017 or _ even of tne Treasury or of the War or Navy , are of more importance to this nation ? Where would our army and ¦ navvhave been in the late war but for the supplies derived from the great and substantial industries of agriculture ? noon what else is our credit based ? It was not the gold and silver of our mines that represented the...
Two Railway Events . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Two Railway Events . It seems to have been an off year for railroads , both as to construction of new lines and net earnings of old ones . But there was lately a celebration at San Diego , Cal ., of the completion of a new line to that magnificent port . Although not wholly a new Pacific road , yet important results are expected therefrom to the farmers and fruit growers of Southern California . The new link enables the Atlantic &amp; Pacific to pass through the garden of the State and reach tide water by its own road nearly a day earlier than by the Southern Pacific . It is one more blow at the Pacific freight monopoly . Steamers connect with San Francisco and an ocean line will doubtless turn the stream of Asiatic trade into this channel , This means quicker time and better freights to Japan and China , lower prices of oriental products and an extended market for some American manufactures . Our Canadian neighbors , also , held a jubilation over the driving of the last spi...
Lo . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 5 December 1885
Lo . PRESIDENT CLEVELAND has spoken his mind about the Indian . It was in reply to a delegation from tho Mohonk conference . Among other sensible utterances he said : The most important consideration to my mind is what is the most useful thing to be done now . He discussed the difficulties arising from the influence of the old chiefs , and the pros and cons of the reservation system . The Mohonk delegation had pronounced in favor of breaking up the reservations as speedily as practicable , giving a title to each Indian to a reasonable piece of land , and converting the remainder into the public domain . They believe , however , that Congress should pay a definite price for the lands relinquished , and so create a fund for each of the tribes which can be used to aid them in cultivating their land , for stock and for schools , etc . Gen . Sheridan , in his annual report , declares that the time has come to abolish the reservation . He recommends that the proceeds of sale of the land b...
