MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 3 November 1888
MISCELLANEA. If any one (says a shrewd contemporary) will show us a practical farmer who cannot see the advantage of preserving green fodder by en silage, wo will in turn show him a man who is entirely blind to his own interest. In Belgium there is a veterinary surgeon who tames tho wickedest horse or any horse difficult to shoe. Ho pours on a cloth a quarter of an ounce of an essence made from the dis tillation of parsley. Tho horso becomes im mediately quiet, gentle as a lamb. The roots and leaves of parsley enjoy tho reputation of possessing medicinal qualities of a calming character. Parsley seeds, when distilled, yield a camphor that intoxicates like haschisch. Porka vorba concerning swine : — Beans, peas, and tares tend to the formation of muscle oi lcan meat in pigs. — If a pig coughs often it is a sign of a wet sleeping place. — All pigs young or old, must have dry litter for winter quarters. It must not bo wet beneath thoir bed. — A little oilcake is good for fattening pigs...

ARBOR DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 3 November 1888
ARBOR DAY. The British Consul at Chicago in a recent re port refers to an interesting experiment in some of the Western States in afforestation. Ho says that in the vast prairies of tho western half of Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas, the eastern part of Colarado, and in the plains of Dakota and Wyoming, there is an almost total absence of trees, and hence tho moisture is very deficient. In the forest regions and almost the mountains, lumber and firewood have rapidly ecreased from tlm l-nnklnss wnv in whinh old and young trees have been cut. This waste has been strained by various Acts, principally by the Timber Culture Law, which regulates the disposal of lands. In Nebraska, fifteen years ago, a voluntary movement was started for the encouragement of plauting and forestry in general, and one day in the year, called ' Arbor Day,' was set apart fur that purpose. On that day trees are planted by prominent persons, and by the 1 cal bodies. This ex ample has been followed by nearly every o...

'Why is'nt such tho case to-day? Though Constable Welsh deserves kudos for bringing that Siamese' artful dodger to justice, the 'arresting 'trap' was unquestionably policeman Alcohol. Mr. Nobbs's suggestion that fruitgrowers should seek tho protection of the Trades Marks Act, in the matter of thoir eases is u good one, but — there nro always awkward ' buts' in cases of the kind — tho Act in question doesn't appear to be very particularly protective of thoso whose interests it was designed to con serve. At Penrith, t'other day, -for instance, it lamentably broke down, when its provisions were appealed to, to afford protection to somo respectable manufacturers whose rights had been infringed upon by certain too too free traders.
