MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880
MISCELLANEOUS NOTES AT LARGE . IN relation to a new system of curing diseases by suitable variation in foods , which is attracting considerable attention and praise , the Rev . Henry Ward Beecher w ittily says : For thousands of years men have eaten without a scientific motive , without rational appreciation of the relations of foods to bone , muscle , nerve , and so on . The whole motives lay in the mouth . Men ate because it tasted good , but by-and-by we shall , have bone-build-ing , fat-producing , nerve-replenishing and muscle-forming dishes . The host , instead of asking guests to take beef or pudding , will say to a lean or cadaverous visitor , Let me fill up your tissue , or , my dear sir , your bones are brittle , allow me to pass this compound ; better bones were never made than this produces . To some exigeant scholar , thin and nervous , the jolly host will say , My dear fellow , let me help you to brains . What do you affect ? This dish runs strongly to poetry ; or , is...
HOW LONG ANIMALS LIVE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880
HOW LONG ANIMALS LIVE The average age of cats is fifteen years ; of squirrels and hares , seven to eight years ; rabbits , seven ; a bear rarely exceeds twenty years ; a doglives twenty years , a wolf twenty , a fox fourteen to sixteen ; lions are long lived , the one known by the name of Pompey living to the age of seventy . Elephants have been known to live to the great age of 400 years . When Alexander the Great had conquered Porus , King of India , he took a great elephant which had fought valiantly for the king , and named him Ajax , dedicating him to the sun , and letting him go with this inscription , Alexander , son of Jupiter , dedicated Ajax to the sun . The elephant was found with this inscription 350 years after . Pigs have been known to live to the age of twenty , and the rhinoceros to twenty-nine ; a horse has been known to live to the age of sixty-two , but averages twenty-five to thirty ; camels sometimes live to the age of 100 ; stags are very long livers ; sheep se...
PROTECTION AT WESTERN EXPENSE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 January 1880
PROTECTION AT WESTERN EXPENSE The statistics of railway construction for 1879 show on what side of the tariff question the interests of the Western States lie . Out | of the nearly 4 , 000 miles of track-lay-ing in the United States this year the Eastern ^ and Southern States did but little . The West is the present scene ot railway building exploits . Kansas , Iowa and Minnesota lead the list in the order named . The future prosperity of those States and their Western sisters depends on the development of their railway systems . The railway is as vital to the wheat-growing and cattle-raising West as air anil water . The wisest statesmanship and the truest political economy would give every encouragement to the people of the West to enlarge their wheat crops and their herds and so make up their most effective contribution to the comfort and happiness and wealth of the whole country . Precisely the opposite course is pursued under the present tariff . Not only the West , but all the ...

THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
THE SHEAF A SHOW of fat poultry , killed and dressed for market , was recently held at the town of La Fleche , in France . Their beauty , fine quality , and general perfection , we are informed , excited the general admiration of the visitors . We commend the idea to the managers of our poultry shows . Lovers oi poultry as food are far more numerous than poultry fanciers . A PRIZE is offered by the Governor of the Prussian Province of Saxony for tlie best text-book of natural science and agriculture . The exact title is as follows : Lehrbuch der Naturwissenschaften und der Landwirthschaft zum Gebrauch beim Unterricht in den Ackerbauschulen und landwirthschaftlichen Winterschulen in Sachsen .

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
AGRICULTURAL ORIGIN OF OUR CROPS . We condense the following from a late lecture by Prof . John Wrightson , F . C . S ., delivered at Warminster , England , last Fall . It is interesting reading : WHEAT AND THE CEREALS . It is extremely doubtful that wheat has ever been found growing wild . Although Adolph de Candolle believed that wheat had been found growing in a natural state in various parts of Asia , it is held by other authors that such supposed wild wheat had really escaped from cultivation . It is a curious fact that none of our botanists are agreed as to the parent form of any of our cereals . It is , therefore , to some extent an open question whether we agree with those who hold that wheat may be found wild in that region sometimes called the cradle of the human race , or that wheat and the other cereals are modified forms of certain species now growing wild , although not easily recognized as the parent forms of our cereals . There is no doubt that wheat has been cultiva...
SORGHUM SEED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
SORGHUM SEED It appears by reports of experimenters that sorghum cane seed , ripened in the North , say Minnesota , and taken to the Southern States , as , for instance , Texas and South Carolina , does not give good returns . On the contrary , cane planted in the South , from seed ripened there year after year , grows more vigorously each year , but its yielding qualities of saccharine matter have not yet been determined . Southern seed taken North yields finely the first year , but the y ield decreases unless the seed is often renewed from the South . As we said , these things appear to be so , but we doubt if experience thus far has been decisive . The Chinese cane being a product of a northern latitude , should be found to perfect its seed best in a medium climate like that of Illinois , Iowa , etc . It is not alone vigor of stalk that is needed and that renders the crop valuable . Growth of cane must not be at the expense of saccharine matter .
COST OF WHEAT GROWING [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
COST OF WHEAT GROWING A Moniteau Co ., Mo ., correspondent ot the Rural World figures up the cost ot wheat growing in his locality , as follows : About $ 1 . 50 per acre would be about the average rent of the land ; plowing , 75 c ; harrowing and rolling , 20 c ; sowing with drill , 50 c per acre ; threshing , 5 c per bushe * s sticking and the aid as the thresher is about equal to the value of the strawharvesting by contract , $ 1 . 50 per acre . This , then , plus the seed , and 5 c per bushel for threshing , will be the expense on one acre of ground sowed in wheat . Supposing the yield to be ten bushels per acre , and wheat raised to be of equal value , with seed , we have 50 c for threshing , plus 1 1-2 bushels for seed , leaving 81-2 bushels raised at a cost of $ 4 . 96 , or 58 l-5 c per bushel .
HOLDING PRODUCE OVER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
HOLDING PRODUCE OVER In holding grain or even tubers and fruit for a rise the careful farmer must take into consideration several points . In the first place it is pretty definitely established that corn and the other cereals will lose in weight by drying out , say , an average , one-tenth . There is almost always a loss in storage from rats and mice , the weevil , etc . Potatoes and the roots and fruits decay more or less . Some one figures that corn loses one-fifth by drying , and wheat one-fourteenth . So that corn in the ear had better be sold at 75 c in the Fall , than at $ 1 . 00 in the following Summer ; and wheat at $ 1 . 25 in Fall than $ 1 . 50 in Summer .
HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
HORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN . —NO . 5 . A STRAWBERRY BED . What the best strawberry is for general cultivation , I think has not yet been satisfactorily decided . One writer advocates the use of Triumph de Gand to the exclusion of all other kinds . Another would prefer Jucunda or Charles Downing , while the next man heard from says that the Agriculturist is incomparably , superior to all others . I am inclined to think that this or that man s success with strawberries depends almost wholly on the kind of cultivation he gives them , so that it does not matter so very much what kind he has , If he happens to be growing a particular variety , and succeeds , he quite naturally recommends that variety . That there is a difference—and a great one—between the many strawberries in the market , I admit , but I believe that more depends upon the treatment the plant receives than upon the variety . I have grown a dozen kinds , and succeeded fairly with all of them . Some have proved to be prol...
ENTOMOLOGICAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
ENTOMOLOGICAL . LONDON PURPLE . BY PROF . C . V . KII . EY . One of the most valuable insecticides that has of late years come into use is that which goes by the name which caps this communication , and I take pleasure in giving to the readers of the REVIEW the results of my last year s experiments with it , as prepared for a forthcoming bulletin of the Entomological Commission . The powder is obtained in the following manner in the manufacture of aniline dyes : Crude coal oil is distilled to produce benzole . This is mixed with nitric acid and forms nitro-benzole . Iron filings are then used to produce nascent hydrogene with the excess of nitric acid in the benzole , when distilled aniline results . To this add arsenic acid , to give an atom of oxygen , which produces rose aniline , and quick-lime is added to absorb the arsenic . The residuum , which is obtained by filtration or settling , is what has been denominated London Purple , the sediment being dried , powdered and finely p...
THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
THE POULTRY YARD MAKING OLD POULTRY TENDER A writer in the iV . T . Tribune , saysthat old poultry may be made tender and savory by the following method : Soak it in cold water with a handful or two of ashes thrown in for twenty-four hours ; pick off the feathers and let it hang for twenty-four hours longer . Then let it boil for a quarter of an hour in veal broth or water ; take it out , lard and bake it ; when nearly done baste with hot butter . By this method the flavorof a young chicken may be imparted to an old fowl . Poultry of all kinds requires thorough cooking , as when underdone it is tasteless . A turkey weighing eight pounds should be baked three hours and basted every ten or fifteen minutes with its own drippings and with melted butter . If proper care is taken in dressing poultry it will not need washing . A wet cloth may be used to wipe it clean if necessary , but soaking it in water takes out the flavor . Young poultry may be known by having smooth legs and supple fe...
CROP REPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
CROP REPORTS THE FARMERS REVIEW OF THE SEASON . WINTER WHEAT , COK ; N AND HOGS , IN ILLINOIS . We are able this week * to present to the many thousand readers of the FARMERS REVIEW the condition of the Winter wheat in Illinois . In Northern Illinois it will be observed that the crop has been more or less injured by the open and wet winter . As wo work into the Central portion of the State we find the conditions improved , and when we get into Egypt the crop gives great promise of a fine yield . Yet the fact must be home in mmd that at the present writing the whole State is one vast sea of mud , and that the ground is perfectly saturated with water . We may expect cold freezing weather , and such a change could not help but prove disastrous to the Winter wheat . The trials for this crop are yet to come . The fact is also brought out very clearly that the great bulk of the crop has been sold . The mud blockade has greatly interfered also with the movement of corn , and large stocks a...
