AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-N 0 . 3 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-N 0 . 3 The foundation principles in all re-pro . duction of animal life is , that like produces like ; the offspring resembles the parent ; each class produces after its kind . The most ignorant of tribes of men , the most careless of observers must have observed this law . Were it not for this law breeding domestic animals would be a work of blind chance ; there could he no certainty of improvement , or even retaining present excellence . But , in the nature of the case , it is impossible there should be exact resemblance between the offspring and the parent . Each animal has two parents ; it can not exactly resembleboth ; as a matter of fact it never exactly resembles either . Side by side with the law of inheritance , the copying by the offspring of the characteristics of the parents , we find a less easily understood—but equally constant and important , — law of variation . If there were no such law ; if it were possible to have exact re-production of th...

LIVE STOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

LIVE STOCK NOTES The expense of sendini ? cattle to Europe it about $ 25 per head . At this rate the ordinary steamer earns about $ 10 , 000 per trip . 32 000 head were shipped last year from New York ; 28 , 000 from Boston ; Philadelphia and Baltimore 7 . 000 each . In all about 100 , 000 head were sent from America . The largest shipper in the business is F . H . Help , of New York . PBIJTE bullocks of carcass weight Cot from 76 to 80 stone , at 14 pounds to the stone ) , are to be bought , in the States at about 182 . to 202 per head to the feeder . Adding to this prime cost , railway carriage at both ends , expenses of an Atlantic voyage , consigner s and salesmen s profits , this means that , without calcu latin ? losses , a minimum price of from Is . tn 8 s . per stone is needed to make the trade remunerative . But why do not English feeders know as much as the Illinois one about what their cattle weigh , and about what they are setting for producing a cwt . of meat ? This is ...

He has been dumpish , off his feed , has some difficulty in swallowing , and sometimes the water which he drinks is returned through the nose ; his hind legs are a little swollen .

DOGS UNDER SURGICAL TREATMENT [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

DOGS UNDER SURGICAL TREATMENT We have a little dog , says Chambers * Journal , one of those beautiful creatures known as a King Charles , on which it was found necessary to perform a surgical operation . With a heavy heart we took the animal , unconscious of what was to ensue , to the Royal Veterinary College , and was fearful as to what might be the suffering and its consequences . The operation occupied about a quarter of an hour , and though no doubt painful , was borne with a wonderful degree of quietness and patience . For an hour or two afterwards the patient was rather dull , but recovered his spirits , and is as lively as ever . On the remarkable degree of equanimity often demonstrated by dogs under surgical treatment , the Lancet , in a recent number , makes the following remarks : We have often been struck with astonishment while witnessing the patient submission of animals , especially dogs and horses , to surgical operations , and to the surgical dressings necessitated b...

FHE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

FHE POULTRY YARD BRIEF HINTS . Mr . B . M . Crosman , Batavia , New York , writes thc FARMERS REVIEW the following : To PREVENT FOWLS FROM FEATHERKATING . —I take a sharp knife , turn Ihe fowl on its hack , and cut the outer edges of the upper half of the bill and then cut off the point of the hill so that it will bleed a little when trimmed , in this way they can not hold on to a feather to pull it out . I have performed this operatipn in the show-room several times and never knew it to fail . To PREVENT BREEDS FROM MIXING — I keep several breeds of fowls together until the last of February . I take a leather strap long enough to put around each leg of the cockerels and allow them a short step ; make an elongated staple of wire and put through the strap midway between the legs . The cockerels will keep quiet and get fat . To KEEP OFF LICE . —I saturate the perches at night just before the birds go to roost , so that when they sit down the lice are brought so close the offensive ker...

THIS IS FOR YOU TO READ [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

THIS IS FOR YOU TO READ There is something really amazing in the carelessness of people about givingthe names of their post office , county , and State , and even their own names in their correspondence with strangers . Not a day passes but we are in receipt of from one to half a dozen letters in which some vital portion of the address is omitted . Most of these letters contain subscription money ; some of them ask for sample copies , or require a letter in reply . The consequence is , that these communications must be laid aside to await a complaint from the writer , who in his heart accuses us of negligence , or our clerks , or those of the post office department , of dishonesty or culpable carelessness . Here is a specimen letter just atUi and : PARSONS . Jan 2 nd , 1880 . FARMERS REVIEW CO . DEAR SIRS : I herewith send yon cents so as to get the FARMERS REVIEW weokly instead of monthly for the year 1880 . . Now the proper way for correspondents to do , is to carefully look over ...

A SWINDLE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

A SWINDLE For the second time the FARMERS * REVIEW has been causht by an advertiser whom , it believes , deliberately designs to swindle our renders . In our issue of Jan . 22 d , we printed the advertisement of a Breech-Loading Repeating Rifle for $ 4 . 50 . It came through an agency in New York that lays claim to respectability ; the reasons given for the low price of the gun were plausible , and the advertisement was admitted in the best of faith . We are now in receipt of a letter from one of the most responsible business houses in New York , which says : Tn answer to enquiries we have sent from this office to the address given , and find that it is a regular swindle , the rifle being nothing more than an inferior kind nf revolver , 22 calibre , with eight inch barrel , with a rough sawn walnut stock screwed on . * * * * It struck us as being to the best interests of the REVIEW to call your attention to the matter . We are greatly obliged for the information , and take the first...

NEWSPAPER EXPENSES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

NEWSPAPER EXPENSES The business boom has struck the newspapers a backhanded blow . The cost of white paper has advanced 85 per cent , and there have been advances in all the other departments . The cost of publishing a newspaper now is nearly a third sreater than it was six months ago . In St . Louis all the papers except the PostDispatch have raised their prices $ 2 . 00 per year , and the chances are that if the cost of publication increases , or even continues at the present rate , there will be a general advance . —Denver Tribune . The facts stated in the above extract are true enough , and , we presume so far as a majority of papers are concerned , its surmises are equally so . It has been observed no doubt , that few papers reduced their prices while the cost of their production was lower than now and far lower than at any time since the beginning of the war . Doubtless some of the daily papers in the large cities would point to their increase in size as an equivalent for main...

THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE An investigation ( it should have rather been termed an examination ) , is now progressing by order of Congress , into the affairs of the Department of Agriculture . The object in view , in a word , is to determine its value to the country , and to consider whether its sphere can be advantageouslv extended . Among other questions to be considered , is a proposition to raise the office of Commissioner to the exnlted dignity of the cabinet , giving the agricultural interest a representation in thc National council chamber . Just what arguments pro and con may be advanced wil ! be reported hereafter . But it may be a matter of interest to the readers of the REVIEW at this time to understand the position and duties of the Agricultural Bureau as it is now organized . For this purpose a brief summary is given below . The Commissioner of Agriculture is required to collect and diffuse useful information regarding agriculture . He per forms his duties by practic...

AGRICULTURAL' INSTRUCTION TO CHILDREN . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

AGRICULTURAL INSTRUCTION TO CHILDREN . We find the plan described some time since in a French agricultural journal and referred to in the last number of the last volume of the REVIEW , elaborated very readably and with a good deal of pains , in the Journal d Agriculture , by one of its correspondents . He writes at some length on the subject , and we merely recur to it again so soon to point out how eminently practical his suggestions are , and how worthy of the attentions of our agricultural societies . Indeed , we would like to see this subject discussed at their meetings and at the Farmers Institute . How to instil useful information on agricultural subjects into the minds of the children , and how to interest them in all things pertaining to the farm . The writer whose article is before us , points out very forcibly , the eminent wisdom of teaching a child something about plants , about trees , fruits and . flowers , veg etables , the treatment of domestic animals , care of bees...

AMERICAN FABRICS-THE TBANSPOR TATI 0 N QUESTION . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

AMERICAN FABRICS-THE TBANSPOR TATI 0 N QUESTION . It is not alone our raw agricultural products—our grains and meats—that are going abroad . Surely , and not very slowly , American textile fabrics are finding their way into the markets of the world heretofore almost exclusively supplied by English manufacturers . Thc British Consul at Cliefoo , China , reports to his government that in 1872 the importations of British gray shirtings to that port were 438 , 399 pieces ; in 1878 , 229 , 463 pieces ; while American drills , though 40 per cent , dearer , are driving the English drills out ot the market . In 1879 the imports were—English drills , 14 , 673 pieces ; American , 58 , 108 ; English sheetings , 871 ; American , 59 , 943 . At Shanghai , the imports of American drills increased from 2 , 630 bales in 1874 , to 19 , 612 bales in 1878 . American sheetings , from 1 , 135 to 14 , 461 bales in the same period , and our jeans increased from uone in 1874 to 2 , 597 bales in 1878 . Ameri...

ILLINOIS AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 5 February 1880

ILLINOIS AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTE The annual Agricultural Institute of the Illinois Industrial University opened on Tuesday afternoon , January 27 th . Tho attendance at the opening was large , and was well sustained throughout , and is especially notable as representing almost all parts ot the State . This Institute is a part of the work of the Agricultural College of the University , and its aim is to give practical instruction to farmers and others who can not attend the regular agricultural classes . The lectures were mainly upon subjects of direct interest to the farmers , and tho Institute , asa whole , has been very successful . The flrst lecture was by I . O . Baker , Prof , of Civil Engineering , on Engineering in Farm Drainage . He spoke of 1 the instruments that could be used in levelling , showing the one used by engineers , which , although the best , was too costly for the average farmer ; then by an ingeniously contrived apparatus , he showed how levelling could be done...
