BEE ANATOMY . - v [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 2 January 1896
BEE ANATOMY . - v A bee is ^ divided into : three sectionshead , thorax , and abdomen . It has five eyes—three in the form of a . triangle : in the centre of the forehead , and one on each , side of the ihead . -. These , looked under a microscope , are very beautiful ., ; The antennae are the two flexible black horns on the head ; with these bees recognize eacb other , and in them are supposed to be located the extremely sensitive organs of smelling and hearing . They are to the bee very much what the brain is to man . A bee deprived of her antennae loses her power of movemerit . ¦ ... In the head and thorax of the porker bee are the nursing . glands , Which secrete a niilky food fed to the larvae . Theses glands are very large in the young worker while they act as nurses , but reduced in the old bees of a ; brbbdless colony . ; In the old bees they withermorei . arid more till theybecome shrunken and seeriiirigly withered up .

NOTES . —We have had inquiries as to how sweet potatoes may be kept without kiln drying . Here is the method ; used by thle Horticulturist at the Oklahoma Experiment Station with good suecess :- They require storing when dry , must be kept diry and at a suitable temperature and good ventilation is important . Bury them out of doors , placing 15 or 20 bushels in each pile ; cover with a good coating of straw , then a covering of either corn olr sorghum stalks-, leaving an opening at the top . Cover this opening with a box open towards the south , thus preventing the entrance of rain arid allowing ventilation . Put on only enough dirt to prevent freezing , increasing the thickness of the . dirt covering as the weather becomes -more severe . —Coldl weather is the best time to dehorn cattle and if . you will : get a pair of Keystone Dehorning Clippers , made by A .

Farm ^ " [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 2 January 1896
Farm ^ RENOVATING PASTURES . The raising of crops for soiling is recommended by some as a substitute for pasture . This may be done near cities where there is a large demand for milk , and-land is valued at much higher prices , but this system will not be adopted by farmers generally . Ensilage also has its advocates , and proposes to-store the fodder crops to be fed • out as , needed , arid to use the pasture simply as breathing places , instead of feeding ground for their stock . Pastures and mowings comprise nearly one-half of all our land . To virtually abandon them , and be driven to the adoption of soiling , or using ensilage at the time we have ¦ usually had our cattle at pasture , is an admission that we are not competent to take care • of our lands , and that we have allowed them to depreciate in value until they are of no profitable use . to feed cattle upon , and that soiling our cattle or feeding ensilage is more economical than to let cattle gather their ; Own . food . ...

Scott s Emulsion of cod-liver oil , with hypophosphites , is the best food-means of getting your strength back—your doctor will tell you that .

BIG CROPS OF BLACKBERRIES . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 2 January 1896
BIG CROPS OF BLACKBERRIES . ( Continued from Page 864 . ) When we dig a sucker plant , we generally get only a few . roots with it ; the foliage absorbs the strength of what rootage there is , and there being no callouses formed , few roots start . Those already established grow from the end 1 and in this way will often go out Jorty or fifty feet from the bush , while near the plant will be found very few roots . The sap , having to pass through these long roots before it can reach the foliage for assimilatiloin , greatly aggravates the sucker nuisance and the few berries secured are generally dry , seedy and flavorless . Now let me describe any ideal of what a blackberry should be and see if I can formulate a method of producing it and preserving the highest fruiting vigor , and put on the market a grade of berries so delicious that the demand shall always be in excess of the supply . First / there should be no weak or puny bushes but all uniformly large and enriched withVfull bloo...

Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 2 January 1896
Fins , Feathers and Honey Bees WINTER CARE OF FOWLS . M . S . Perkins , Massachusetts , in the National Stockman , says the present is a critical season in the poultry house , not only because eggs are higher priced now than in summer , but also because the breeding time will soon be here , when the highest thrift and health are nesessary among the mature fowls , in order that a like vigorous offspring may be produced . A great deal depends upon the feed , The larger the variety the better . An exclusive diet of grain is to be avoided . Animal food must be supplied in abundance , now that bug and grasshopper are no more . There are various preparations on the market that are no doubt of some value ; but we prefer to everything else fresh juicy meat , and : ; ground -nieat bones , both in tiie-raw state . Here we get all the delicate and nutritious juices , a considerable portion of which vis lost by any process of boiling . We now have an . excellent machine for grinding fresh borie...
