Esgliik Potatoes io America. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 31 March 1906
Esgliik Potatoes io America. Consul Hamm, of Hull, sends a table giving the quantities pf potatoes shipped at that port from November 11, 1905, to January 18, 1906. The total number of bushels was 152,000, worth 864,600, or about 42 cents a bushel, They came from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, where thfe land is brought to the highest stage of cultivation and drainage and the best of fertilizers are used. The consul adds that it seems strange that England, with its crowded population, can export thousands of bushels of potatoes to a country like the United States, with an abundance of cheap arable land. The American duty, too, is 25 cents per bushel.
Tbt Fatal* Warm. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 31 March 1906
Tbt Fatal* Warm. The must serious pest in California is the potato worm. The damage to the potato crop in California, as catimated by the writer on a basis of opinions obtained from a large number of growers and dealers, aggregates in seme years fully twenty-five per cent. In one section where some of the finest potatoes are grown, the Salinas Valley, the dealers estimate that at times the loss has gone as high aft 40,000 sacks in a single year, and indeed, the potatoes from many sections of the state have to be watched carefully by the dealers to avoid wormy lots. This need of care is because of the fact that a very few wormy potatoes may infect in a few weeks a whole storeroom full of what were originally clear tubers. As the potato is a food product that id , expected to retain its value for many mouths, this possibility of infestation becomes a most serious question.

Pralscb af Sauna Caasty, Calsfsraio. The Sonoma County Board of Trade Journal aaya:. * “It may seem a broad assertion, but ueverthless tt is true, that Sonoma County, together with her great wine dairy stock and other large industries produces as much poultry and eggs as all the balance of the State put'together. v The annual output of this latter commodity is over $2,000,000 in value. The advantages of the poultry and egg industry in Sonoma Country are its nearness to a reliable market, quick cash returns, and,, length of season. ■/; ■ After each rain the soil should be well cultivated—it may be the last rain of the season—see that the soil moisture is conserved.

Diipviitivss if Cm. Cows differ as much in their disposition as human beings. Any former that has handled a large number of cows will have run across the stubborn cow, the affectionate cow, the motherly cow, even the bossy cow. Some of these qualities are good and some are bad. A man should try to eliminate the bad qualities and encourage the development of good ones in the selection of the cows for the continuation of his herd.
B* Good to the He*. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 31 March 1906
B* Good to the He*. What the hen on the farm needs is the proper assortment of grain, plenty of green food and a full proportion of meal and grit. If this is provided and they are properly housed and made to exercise you will have hens in winter when it pays well to have them. If the cow is not by nature a heavy and rich milker, all the balanced rations one can prepare will not make her such. So with the hen. She will only return for food and attention up to her original capacity. More and better green food supply and mure meat of some kind are what the hen needs for winter egg production. As to what is enough green food we would say all they will eat. As to the quantity of cut bone or meat, all yon can afford to give them and hold a profit, as a possible egg yield of say three eggs per week per hen. Give them of animal food less than one-tenth of their whole ration of meat, and from this up to one-flfth of their whole ration of meat as cost' will permit. In securing a good supply o...

Denver. —Alice Roosevelt Longwort h may delight iu outdoor sports, aud partioulariy iu horseback riding, but she prefers the old-fashioned side saddle, instead of the one modeled after the men’s saddle which so many of her sisters affect. This preference was brought to light when Colonel W, F. Cody, otherwise known as “Buffalo Bill, Vof Wild West fame, desired to make the White House bride a wedding present. The colonel, having a penchant for giving saddles to those of the fair sex he honors with presents, accordingly wrote to Miss Roosevelt, asking her preference, a “side, or astride saddle.” Miss Roosevelt promptly responded that she did not use the “astride” saddle. Accordingly, Colonel Cody had one of the finest side saddles ever made in America sent to the White House. Ho has since received a letter of thanks from Mrs. Lougworth, aud one from President Roosevelt acknowledging the gift. An 80=»cre prune orchard near Santa Clafa baa been sold ...
