INOCULATION FOR PLEURO-PNEUMONIA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
INOCULATION FOR PLEURO-PNEUMONIA The English Veterinary Journal has great confidence in the extinction of pleuro-pneumonia by inoculation . At this time when the disease seems getting a hold in several localities in the Atlantic States , and is creating general alarm , the following from the authority mentioned above may not come : , There is at length a prospect of release from the ravages of one of the most serious scourges that ever visited the bovine population of this or any other country , if the Government cares to adopt those measures which have now been proved to be completely efficacious in extinguishing it . Contagious pleuro-pneumonia still lingers in these islands , and will continue to do so , in all probability , until the end of time , unless its insidious contagiousness and protracted latency are fully recognized , and the utility of inoculation as a protective measure fairly acknowledged and resorted to when necessary . The persistency with which the value of inocu...
LIVE STOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
LIVE STOCK NOTES DB . W . A . PRATT , of Elgin , 111 ., who is advertising his Holstein cattle in the REVIEW . writes us January 20 , that his advertisement has brought him a very large correspondence , and , he adds , I have made three sales already which I owe to your paper . I had a card in another agricultural paper published in your city , that makes great claims to patronage , for three mouths , without getting a single letter from it . The doctor requests that the REVIEW give an article descriptive of the Holsteins and their true merits , especially for dairy purposes . This we shall take pleasure in doing , as we are aware that , as a rule , this breed is less known In the West than any dairy race of cattle . Prof . Morrow , in his admirable series , now in course of publication , will do this admirable breed , as well as all others , full justice in due course of time . MB . VERRI ALDRICH , of Tiskilwa , HI ., one of the first to try the REVIEW as a medium through which to ...
THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
THE DAIRY . THE WISCONSIN DAIRYMENS CONVENTION . Editors FARMERS REVIEW :-YOU ask for a general , condensed view of the leading features of the late Wisconsin Dairymen s Convention , held at Elkhorn . You have , in last weeks issue , given something of its doings ; and so I will try and give you a general idea of the thought of Wisconsin dairymen , as connected with their vocation , without duplicating anything you have already aired . The first leading thought of novices in the business , who have had ideas of engaging in the production of butter and cheese , is , that the immense changes in the market price of dairy productions experienced for the season of 1879 , have had a tendency to unsettle the whole business , and induce the producers to look to an early abandonment of it as a reliable occupation . Whatever conclusion the timid and inexperienced may have come to , it could plainly be seen that the stalwarts , who have given voice and character to the Wisconsin organization ,...
AN EARNEST TALK WITH WESTERN DAIRYMEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
AN EARNEST TALK WITH WESTERN DAIRYMEN . Editors FARMERS REVIEW : —Having just returned from a meeting of the Wisconsin Dairymen s Association , held at Elkhorn ,, Wisconsin , where I was delighted to hear the many discussions and different ideas on the subject of butter and cheese making , allow me to say that this is a subject in which I have taken great interest , and have devoted a great deal of time and attention to its improvement and advancement . Upon mature consideration of all the papers read and ideas advanced at that meeting , I do not think there was enough stress placed on the necessity of more earnest determination on the part of the factorymen , dairymen , and dairywomen to improve the quality of the cheese and butter they make . Allow me to say right here , that I had the honor to be one of the judges of butter and cheese for Wisconsin at the International Dairy Fair , held at New York City , Dec . 6 th , 1879 . Tiiere I saw and tried the cheese which was made in Can...
VETERINARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
VETERINARY . QUERIES AND ANSWERS . FRACTURE OF TUB LOWER THIRD OF THE FEMUR—QUERY : —R . P , of Rio , Wisconsin , in a letter to the FARMERS REVIEW , says : I have a yearling colt with his leg broken above die stifle-joint . The leg was broken about six days ago . Immediately after tlie accident the animal was placed in a sling and seems to be getting along well . What is your opinion about his getting all right again , with good care , or had I better knock him in the head at once ? Also tell me what treatment you would recommend . % ANSWER : —There are many things connected with a fracture of the femur ( thigh bone ) of the horse which makes it impossible to treat those cases successfully , and for the sake of humanity , as well as the pecuniary benefit of the owner , the sooner the animal is destroyed the better . In order to get a union of a fractured bone , we must hold the divided edges of the fracture in direct opposition , and prevent any motion of the parts until union take...

ILLINOIS TILE MAKERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
ILLINOIS TILE MAKERS THE Illinois State Tile Making Association met in annual session at Springfield , on the 20 th of January , with a fair attendance of makers from the State and some from other States . Mr . J . K . Reader , of Nilwood , the president , occupied the chair . He read a brief , pertinent address , referring to the rapid growth of the manufacture of the Tile in the State , and the great good it was accomplishing . He was satisfied that great improvement could yet be made in the manufacture of Tile by counseling together and learning from each other . In order to expedite business two-com-mittees were appointed to prepare work for the convention . The first , on the best means to create a demand for Tile , rec ommended thorough work in drainage so as to obtain the best results from the money expended . Thorough work embraces a good outlet , deep drains with regular grades and carefully laid Tile . They urged the importance of gathering all facts and information possib...

FAIR EXPENDITURES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
FAIR EXPENDITURES In a reference to the report of the Treasurer of the Illinois State Board of Agriculture that appeared in the REVIEW for January 15 , the fact of other expenditures , $ 18 , 060 . 40 / was mentioned . We said that we should like to have the items of this expenditure , so that it could be determined exactly what it costs to run an Illinois State Fair under the present system of moving it to a new location every two years . It is our belief , that in locating at Springfield , last year , for instance , in consequence of the failure of the Springfield people making the usual contract to fit up grounds and buildings , furnish power for the running of machinery , etc ., the State Board was obliged to step in and expend a considerable amount of money in order to do justice to exhibitors . We have no idea that the Board expended adollarwrongfully , or that it was not necessary for it to expend under the present system . We personally know nearly every member of the Board ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
THE practical results of another ensilage experiment have been communicated to the Journal dAgriculture Pratique . The fodder , in this case consisted of rowan , mowed on the 6 th day of October , and ensilaged the same day . On the first day of November , having stabled his cattle , he began to feed this fodder to ten milch cows . The results have been very satisfactory , the cows eating of it heartily and with much relish . Since their confinement in-the stable they have been giving more milk , and the butter made from it is pronounced to be in taste and color equal to the best June butter . The gentleman who thus reports his experiments , adds that results having proven so satisfactory in the case of his cows , he is about to give the same fodder to fifty head of fat cattle . This ensilage process seems to preserve the grass or other fodder perfectly , with out any of that loss in nutritive qualities which invariably accompanies the drying process .
THE BEES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
THE BEES Prof . Cook writes the FARMERS REVIEW under date of January 26 , that the present is a very promising Winter for bees . Tlie prospects now are that bees generally will survive , unless starvation cuts them off . If the hives are in the cellar , and the bees are quiet , all is well . The temperature should be kept between 35 and 45 degrees . If the temperature gets higher , and the bees become restless , tbey should be carried out and permitted to fly the first suitable day . In the evening return them carefully to the cellar . If the bees are out doors , either packed or unpacked , they will be all right , unless the the weather changes very much , with no special attention . The great danger , and it rises tupwith more than usual prominence this year , says the Professor , isprobable starvation . Owing to the poor season , bees went into Winter quarters illy stocked with provisions , and many colonies , if not fed last Fall , will surely starve , unless the apiarist supple...
SOCIETY MEETINGS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
SOCIETY MEETINGS The days since our last issue have been lively ones among the members of the various agricultural organizations of the West . At the meeting of the Wisconsin State Sheep Breeders and Wool Growers Association , at Whitewater , about 100 persons were present from Wisconsin and northern Illinois . One great object of the meetingwasthe perfecting of rules for the registration of full blood Merino sheep . Visitors took occasion to visit the various fine flocks owned in the neighborhood of Whitewater . Some seventy counties were represented at the meeting of the Illinois State Grange . Among the petitions presented by subordinate granges was One praying the State Grange to protest against the sale of intoxicating drinks on fair gounds , and also to protest against horse racing and all species of gambling at fairs . At the Wisconsin State Grange meeting about 100 delegates were present . The affairs of the order throughout the State were reported in a very satisfactory con...
A RELIEF MEASURE FOR MRS . W . G FLAGG . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 January 1880
A RELIEF MEASURE FOR MRS . W . G FLAGG . A very commendable effort is proposed to induce the Government to restore to the widow of the late W . C . Flagg , of this State , the money exacted from his estate for the settlement of claims technically right , but morally wrong and unjust , made against him in the adjusting of his accounts with the Government as Collector of Internal Revenue in Madison county , during the administration of President Lincoln . The technical defalcation—a word that implies no guilt or wrong when applied to Mr . Flagg—was simply this : It is the rule of the Government that its collectors shall send to Washington copies of all assessments levied . These assessments are charged up in full to the collectors , and they are held responsible for the money . When called upon they must show cash or vouchers for the amount . Now , in Mr . Flagg s district , as in many others in those days , certain assessments were resisted by the individuals assessed , and by appeal...
