Genesis of Live Stock Commerce . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Genesis of Live Stock Commerce . By W . P , Anderson . S INGE the wabbling walk of the New England calf , winding its sinuous way down a hillside on the Atlantic slope gave poetic license to the writer who assumes . that such might have been the agency which first blazed the trail , followed by the country road , along which agrarian highway , has sprung up the thoroughfare studded with the lifting domes and pointing spires of one of our most cultured American cities . That Boston was the seat of the first live stock of commerce there is no doubt , while New York City furnishes greater evidence of valuable comprehension of this particular industry as a factor in the commercial development ot America . The old-time stock yards of New England cut quite a figure in the early development- of the trade ; while the majority of writers credit New England 1 as a sheep ana swine country giving the environment ot Boston the sole credit for the invention of pork suitable for baked beans , ther...

« » Treatment of Young Colts . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

« » Treatment of Young Colts . By Alex . Galbraith . , A FTER the foal has been taught to suck he will rapidly straighten up and gain hourly in strength and vitality . If the weather be favorable the mare and colt may be allowed out after the first day following the birth , but do not allow them to stand out and shiver in a cold wind . If it rains Put . them under cover at once for the reason that , the soft woolly texture of the foal s coat readily absorbs the moisture and this frequently results in colds , rheumatism , or bowel complications . It is generally good economy to allow the mare at least one feed of oats daily even when going on a good pasture , and if the pasture is bare she ought to have grain twice a day . It . is also important to learn the young colt to eat oats just as early as pos- . sible . and this is easily brought about-by allowing thr- youngster to nibble with his dam . Should she wish to prevent the colt eatingher oats , as is often the case , a small mange...

o <*¦* Cellar Wintering . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

o &amp;lt;*¦* Cellar Wintering . By A . H . Duff . T N extremely cold climates , cellars , caves - or underground depositories of some kind are the best place to winter bees . In most of the northern states the specialist resorts to the cellar in winter for this purpose . Cellars used for bees are used for them exclusively , as it will not do well to mix them up with other sfuH * ordina . rily kept in the cellar . A small room may be partitioned off for a few colonies of bees in almost any good cellar , and kept in good condition all winter . The time to put . bees in the cellar is just at the beginning of cold weather or when winter sets in in earnest . They should not be taken to the cellar earlier than this . * * * The apartment where bees are kept-in the cellar must be kept in absolute darkness at all times , and no artificial heat ot any kind used . The hives may be stacked up one abovf another by first making a bench out of 2 x 4 scantling , placing the scantlinsr about fo...

* w Town Milk Trade . By F . W . Moseley . 1 \ HE milkman sustains an important relation to the city and town . In the smaller cities and in villages he comes in regular contact with . his customers and is appreciated by them in proportion to his courteous ways , promptness and general attention to business and the quality of his goods . To make a / success he must also be thorough and cleanly in all the details of his dairying-operations ; from the care of his herd to that of his cans and other dairy , utensils . Some milkmen in addition to running a wagon for the delivery of milk ,, establish a place in a large village or city for . ; the sale of milk and other products of their , dairy and farm , including , skim milk ; cream , buttermilk , cottage cheese , eggs , etc . Such a place is very properly called a dairy , and many times that word is prefixed by another one ; the two words making a sort of trademark . l To illustrate : Riverside Dairy has been-established as a business ...

Of Interest to Michigan Peach Raisers . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Of Interest to Michigan Peach Raisers . THE following account of the results of experiments of Prof . L . R , Taft , of the Michigan Agricultural College , was sent to the Chicago Record , from Lansing , Mich ., Nov . 4 , and will be of interest to peach growers outside of the peach belt of Michigan , for whose especial benefit the experiments were carried on . The account says : While the crop of peaches produced by the famous peach belt of Michigan was fair this year , it would have been much larger but for the disease known as curl-leaf , which ravaged the orchards early in the year , doing more or less damage in all of them and rendering many practically barren for the year . Because of this visitation L . R . Taft , professor of horticulture at the Agricultural college , has been unusually activp in his investigation looking to the discovery of a treatment that will wipe out this disease . He has made experiments supplemental to-those which have engaged . much of . his attentio...

Beautifying Country Homes . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Beautifying Country Homes . THE following is extracted from a paper prepared for the Farmers Congress recently held at College Station , Texas , by Wm . Lomas , Dallas , Texas : However , to those who would rather be their own landscape gardeners a few thoughts may be useful : Have a plan , and as better for the work and general outcome , a plan scaled to measure . Your plan does not need to be formal and tasteless because it . is exact . Let the plan be in harmony with the house and surroundings . Aim at naturalness and simplicity as far as possible , both In the contour of the ground and in planting ; and always keep ¦ the fact before you that you , are making a picture , in perspective , if you know how . but at all events a beautiful picture . Let your ground fall gently from the house , but otherwise be to itself ievel as a floor , except when natural or other undulations or differences of surface have to be provided for . Dont plant many large-growing shade trees on your lawn ...

Better Roads and Improvement of . Highways . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Better Roads and Improvement of . Highways . T 1 ERE is no class has a deeper interest in good roads than farmers , and the stranger estimates the progressive character of a community by . the condition of the public highways . The time is past when a mere track through the woods satisfies the farmer , and good roads is the demand of the period . The good road convention lately held at Omaha was indicative of the Incresed interest In this question , and the number attending from distant states was proof of the importance of securing better roads . The great question was how to build good roads and have them permanent . Many of the eastern men argued for macadam or broken stone for a covering for the highways , but some of the western men thought that very little of the western limestone could resist the severe frost of winter . * * * I N some states the prisoners . and convicts were put to work to 1 prepare the broken stone for roads ; no stone applied that would not pass through a ...

Tillage . . V , V ? ; . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 17 November 1898

Tillage . . V , V ? ; . THE following is taken from an address by Thos . Convey at * a Wisconsin Farmers Institute : We find a great diversity of opinion In regard to the time in which to plow and the manner In which to plow . Along the whole eastern side- of-the state we find that the tendency Is to do fall plowing , and that the opinion is , that it is necessary to do that , in order to get fairly good results . On the south and west , where the soil is lighter , 1 spring plowing is preferred in the majority of cases , more particularly with those farmers who like to . keep a growing crop on their land as nearly all the time as possible . There are certain advantages connected with fall plowing that we should take into consideration . Of course it facilitates the putting in of the crop to have a portion of . the . spring work done in the fall ; besides that , the action of the frost and the other elements tend , in a measure , to pulverize and reduce fall plowed 7 land and get it ...
