*» > -9— Western Fruits and Flowers . By Alda : M . Miller . A FRUIT that has of late years come into prominence in the Dakotas is a variety of solanum or nightshade . The berries are large , ¦ of . fine appearance and borne in > great abundance . ; They are used for sauce , pies and . preserves . But a few years ago the entire nightshade family , was considered by most people as ; deadly poisonous and even yet the word nightshade sends a shiver through many of the older generation . * * * TWO very pretty sweet-scented •little plants belonging to the orchid family are Spiranthes cernua or ladies tresses , and Cypripedium candidum or ladies / slippers . They are frequently found in low meadows in Northeastern South Dakota ^ the latter growing in great profusion along the Lake Traverse bottoms .

Ground vs . Unground Food for Steers . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Ground vs . Unground Food for Steers . By Prof . C . S . Plumb . A VERY large amount of experimental feeding has been conducted , both in America and Europe , showing the effect of different feeding substances on the animal carcass . But comparatively little of this work , however , has dealt with the mechanical preparation of the food , and this without question is an important subject . Some experiments on record , however , are worthy of the reader s attention . Feeding trials by Georgeson at the Kansas station , gave . inconclusive results , where ear corn and corn meal were compared in feeding . In the winter of 1891-92 , two lots of Kansas range steers of five each , were . fed , one being given ear corn and stover , and the other corn meal and stover . The ones fed corn meal ate during six months 3 , 575 pounds of grain , 940 pounds of fodder , and gained 268 pounds in weight each , while those fed ear corn received 4 , 027 pounds o-f fodder and gained 284 pounds eacn . •Cons...

; . •Making Beef . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

; . •Making Beef . By W . S . Hannah . THE average American is so strongly impressed witn the advantages of his country s natural resources that often overlooks his power or neglects to put forth his efforts to assist Nature in her work , in other words , while there is no lack of energy dis- . played there is lack of economy—there is real wastefulness . This is the spirit of extravagance so often exemplified in tne farmer whose mower and binder are left in the field for the sun and storm to disintegrate , after harvest is over . This same spirit is manifest amongst the feeders of live stocic much to their detriment . While the feeding of live stock does not necessarily belongexclusively and distinctly to the farmer , the man who grows the crops , it would often be better for the stability of crop prices , as well as for live stock prices , to say nothing of feeding for profits , were it so . I mean by this that the professional feeder , the man who buys both feed and feeders , is o...

Bacterial Rot of Cabbage . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Bacterial Rot of Cabbage . IT 7 TTHIN the past few years a bacV y terial disease of the cabbage has ; • V ¦•- . become so prevalent in certain •cabbage-growing localities as to occasionvery serious losses to those engaged in the business . Several fields in the vicinity of Lafayette , Ind ., affected with bacterial disease , have been examined by the writer the present season . In one of these fields-, containing over 20 . 000 plants , which were attacked early In the season , not a single marketable head was obtained . In other fields , judging from a cursory examination , from 10 to 50 per cent , of the heads were affected . In view of these facts , it has been thought best to send out a note of warning in regard to the disease , in order that such precautionary measures as are deemed most valuable maybe at once employed in keeping it in check . Fortunately the life history of the . disease has been quite thoroughly studied of late , and the result of the investigations , together...

We recommend them to our readers who dispose of their dressed poultry in Chicago , or who have game to ship to that market : In the first place , poultry should be well fed and well watered and then kept from 18 to 24 hours without food before killing .

? The Gegraphic Distribution of Cereals in North Q America . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

? The Gegraphic Distribution of Cereals in North Q America . An inquiry to ascertain the areas in which the more important varieties of certain cereals are cultivated and to determine how far the distribution of cereals accords with the boundaries of life zones as mapped by the Biological Survey has been made by Prof ., C . S . Plumb , director Indiana Agricultural Experiment Station , Purdue University , Lafayette , tnd ., under the direction of Dr . C . Hart Merriam , chief of Biological Survey . The results of the inquiry are embodied in Bulletin No . 11 , Division o Biological Survev . entlled The geographic distribution of cereals in North America , now in press and soon to-be issued by the U . S . Department of Agriculture . This report shows that in many localities but little attention was given to keeping varieties pure and many farmers used mixed , unknown , or local varieties of ordinary merit , for seed . In the East and South this was more frequently the case than in the...

Manae-insr Fall Piers [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Manae-insr Fall Piers By . J . N , Cowdrey . CAN pigs be fed with profit by keeping them confined ? , Yes . But not so well as when they can have a good clover pasture to run in . But the pasture business is usually out of the question in the winter time , and we will be obliged to keep our pigs pretty closely confined .- Now the next question is , how much close confinement will they stand and how long . I have seen spring pigs that were never out of the pen in which . they were born until ready for sale . I have a litter of Poland : China pigs in mind that were thus kept in the pen until they weighed 200 pounds each , and seemed to grow every minute of their lives until they were about six months old , when all at once they seemed to break down and for a month after did not seem to gain a pound . I dont , think this is the right way for summer feeding . But for winter feeding it is more necessary to keep them confined . In fact I believe pigs will do better by keeping them confine...

New Plants , [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

New Plants , t By J . M . Bice . Velvet Bean—No doubt this is a success in Florida from where I got the seed from the introducer J . G . Sinclair , Orlando , but here it has only made a rampant jgrowth of vine . All late setting beans are failures here , the blossoms blighting during the hot , dry period of midsummer . Cow peas , melons and other seeds were received , from the well-known farmer and writer Jeff . Welborn , of Kerrs , Ark ., and all in first trial seem well adapted to our soil and climate and are worth trying by those who are wanting something new as Welborn is not only up to date but a little ahead . Black rice corn , a hybrid Kaffir , has been tested three years on our farms , from seed procured from so-called old reliable sources and I shall certainly discard it . Iii the . first place if the three lots of seed that I procured are fair samples , it is very far from being true to any one type , and then it grows too tall for convenient handling except it might be so...

Cause and Effect . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Cause and Effect . Our correspondent from Oregon writes , in reference to the Oregon State Fair held at Salem , that it was very poorly at--fcended ; very few exhibits , but a large number of tinhorn gamlblers and horse jockeys . Horse racing is the main feature there . He adds I am perfectly disgusted with the Salem fair . It does not amount , I am sorry to say , to an ordinary county fair . What more can be expected when the management makes the -fair a . common gamblers den , and expects the public to step in : and be fleeced , and pay an admission fee to get in . The farm--ers are no fools and will not support such rottenness because it happens to be branded agricultural fair or state fair . The state , county or city authorities should not permit -such institutions to be run at all , especially under the guise of ^ agricultural fairs .

Raising Corn in Kansas . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Raising Corn in Kansas . In the estimation of H . W . Cheney there is probably no section of country in this world that is better adapted to raising corn than the Kansas river valley and the valleys of the almost numberless creeks that are tributary to it . In an article in the Homestead he says : Commencing at Junction City , nearly 150 miles northwest of ^ Kansas City , the river runs in a . southeasterly direction until It empties into the big muddy at Kansas City ; The valley ^ land along the banks of this river varies in . width from one to ¦ five miles . The soil is a black , rich , sand loam which , from its very nature , required of the early settlers only a slight scratching to produce enormous crops . This fact is a sufficient reason for developing a system of farming that is already showing , as the . country grows order , elements of weakness . Thirty or forty years of continuous cropping with no kind of fertilizers used , and in many places no rotation of crops , is com...

Missouri Weather and Crops . US . department of agriculture , climate and crop bulletin of . October , 1898 : The month of October averaged somethe weather bureau . Missouri section , for the month of what cooler than usual in most sections of the state , and was also unusually cloudy and wet . the precipitation exceeding the normal at nearly all- stations , and a considerable portion of the state receiving more than double the usual amount . A remarkable feature of the month was the snow storms which prevailed on the 17-18 th and 24-25 th . In most sections the snow melted as it fell , but in localities in the western and northern counties the ground was covered to a depth of from six to twelve inches . Late corn matured well , except in a few localities , and little damage was done by the heavy frosts which occurred during the middle and latter part of the month , but both early and late sprouted , moulded and rotted more or less in most sections as a result of the wet weather , a...

The Cow in October . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

The Cow in October . Last year an experiment was tried with one of my . cows that dropped her calf on September 2 S to see if uniform conditions of care would influence the yield of milk and prevent shrinking of yield . The cow was stabled every night and on chilly and stormy days , and as winter gradually approached the stabling became more continuous , and by December 1 she was let out only on very warm days . The result was that at the end of six months the yield of milk had fallen off only three pounds . It is not here intimated that this would result the same for all cows , for cows are each to some extent built upon a plan of their own . but as to this particular cow we had never known her to milk so well in former seasons , and she has always been a winter cow . The lesson is that cows would . do much better in the fall , especially the winter milkers , if they were given more uniform care as regards temperature and freedom from exposure , two months before going into winter ...

Beginning to Wake Up . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Beginning to Wake Up . For two or three years we have been trying to impress upon our readers that they would in the near future wish they had some young horses to sell . We have tried to point out the fact that good horses were every year becoming more and more scarce and that soon after 1900 the supply of horses that could be rated No . 1 would not equal the demand and that before that time one would have to hunt a long time to find animals suitable to fill the demand for first class horses . Already , there are localities where you have to look long to find such horses . The above . was called out by reading the following in the Breeders Gazette , written by W . Reeder , Stark county , Ohio . Mr . Reeder says : Recently a neighbor farmer asked me where he could find a stallion suitable to breed two good young mares to ( and by the way that kind of mares are very scarce ) . I replied that I was sending four mares twenty-five miles to be bred to one of the best Hackney stallions th...
