UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
A Secretary of Agriculture . —II . EDITOR , FABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN : It is evident that the political press reflects the views and sentiments of the politicians . It is further evident , that if progress is to be made by our institutions , and if valuable reforms are to be achieved , the initial impulses thereto must come from the voters , and not the office-holders and the lawyers , -who very wrongfully and unwisely have been suffered to grow into a governing class in this country of a theoretically pure democracy . It is certain that the Cabinet is as at present constituted too small to cope with the administrative questions which now press for solution . The generation is now in existence which must shape the business and control the destinies of one hundred millions of population in these United States , and keep in safe working order the vastly complex social , industrial and political machinery of so populous a modern nation . The day is not in a far remote future when the ...
Two Advertising Swindles . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Two Advertising Swindles . The National Presbyterian , of Indianapolis and Louisville , is evidently taken in , in the matter of two advertisements . One is the 4 per cent loans which we not only rejected but cautioned our readers against . The other is the $ 2 Bible advertisement which has for years victimized the public . We take it for granted the publishers of the National Presbyterian would not knowingly be parties to any swindle . We shall , therefore , expect a vote of thanks for opening their eyes to the true character of these advertizing patrons of their journal .
News Items . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
News Items . —According to Washington dispatches , the increase in the product of corn has reduced the average value of the crop to thirty-three cents per bushel . The average value of the previous crop in December was thirty-six cents . The reduction is largest in the Ohio Valley and in the Southern States west of the Mississippi . —Kansas is quite encouraged by the probabilities of success in sorghum culture . Last year there were grown in this State 11 ( 5 , 511 acres of sorghum . The plant takes kindly to the rich , loamy soil of the eastern part of the State , and will do better than corn in the sandy and barren deserts of Western Kansas . By the new process the industry is likely to be extended so as to make a fair business . —In reference to the character of the students in many of our colleges , Regent Peabody , of the university of Illinois , truly says : Once the home of students of scanty means but large brains , they contain a constantly-growing number whose feebler brai...
We Accept . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
We Accept . There is a faint rumor around town that a certain Chicago agricultural paper has issued a challenge to the effect that if , on actual count of mail lists by experts , its circulation is not larger than any of its competitors in Chicago , its publisher will pay for an eight-inch advertisement of the paper accepting the challenge , in twelve of the leading papers in the twelve largest cities of tho United States , giving the result of the count . If , on the other hand , the paper accepting the challenge has by actual count less circulation than the said journal , its publishers shall pay for the advertisement as above . The FABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN makes haste to accept this challenge , and makes the following additions to it that if on actual count of mail lists it has not more bona fide , paid up , cash-in-ad-vance subscribers than any two Chicago agricultural papers combined , we will pay for the aforesaid advertisement . Another Chicago agricultural paper , in a priv...
New Rose Disk Harrow . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
New Rose Disk Harrow . We illustrate this week a new machine made by Parlin &amp; Orndorff Co ., Canton , 111 ., which every farmer who has not a similar machine , will need . It has come to be a recognized fact that tillage is manure , and that a thorough pulverization of the soil will greatly increase the yield . Any intelligent farmer can see from the construction of this machine that it will effectually accomplish this end . The name of Parlin &amp; Orndorff is a guaranty that it will be well made and of the best material . Some of the points of superiority claimed for it are as follows : Long journal bearings , made of the best steel , insuring long wear ; each section is divided into two parts , thus making the machine composed of four parts , securing lighter draft , and ease in turning at the ends of the field , and a foot rest to cover the disks . The firm of Parlin &amp; Orndorff is one of the oldest manufacturing establishments in Illinois . It beg...
Skilled Labor on the Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Skilled Labor on the Farm . Is skilled labor necessary on the farm , and should -our workmen be trained as are those employed in the workshop ? Well , let us see . Farming is an occupation—a trade . It is more , for it combines a number of occupations . The ordinary farmer contents himself with a knowledge of handling the plow , with seeding , harvesting , feeding stock , dairying , and such other matters as pertain to the ordinary routine . But does every farmer know when , how deep , and the best implement with which to plow ? Has he a proper knowledge of the exact amount of seed to use , the most suitable varieties of plants for his purpose , and the best methods essential for harvesting , storing , and marketing his crops ? Can he estimate the nutritive value of his feeding materials , and so regulate them as to derive the largest product at the least expense ? Can he place his milk , butter and cheese on the market in a manner to secure the best prices and its competition with ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Shelter in the BarnyardIt is well known that all classes of animals have a preference for the open air to that of the stables , and will remain in the barnyard and sheds exposed to cold often for hours unless compelled to return to the stables from necessity . An open shed in the barnyard , facing the south , will often be found serviceable for them , and will add greatly to their thrift , comfort and happiness . True , the stable is usually warmer than a shed , but pure air is essential to health , and instinct leads the stock to seek it whenever they can . The most important thing in an open shed is dryness . In winter dampness does more injury than cold . Hence a shed should be tight as to the roof and deep inside , so as to turn heating rains and draughts . This will give the animals an opportunity for exercise , while the cost will be but little compared with the advantages gained . Oxen on the Farm . A strong prejudice exists against oxen at the present day , though in former ...

Tax the Butterine . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Tax the Butterine . The Government taxes whiskey whether genuine or imitation . It derives a large revenue from tobacco , in whatever shape it may be manufactured , and under the Constitution it has the conferred power to levy taxes on any article that is made within the limits of the United States . By the use of this privilege the butterine nuisance may be swept out of existence in a short time , and all the decisions of judges , or flaws in the statutes , cannot prevent its prohibition . Tobacco and whisky have hosts of friends , but butterine has none , except those who thrust it on tbe people in a disguised form and under an assumed name . With the execution of strict revenue laws , and under such restrictions as are placed around the distillers and tobacco manufacturers butterine cannot escape . Taxation will crush out any article that has competion , and with a high tax against it , and genuine butter competing against it , its sale may be easily prevented if farmers will ins...

Prevention of Hog Cholera . MB . EDITOE : I have tried many remedies for so-called Hog Cholera , and at length I think I have struck the right thing if taken as soon as the hogs are found the least ailing . This remedy is , for a dose to each hog . Take copperas powdered that will lay on a 25 cent piece . Sulphur , the same amount . Turpentine , 20 drops . Mix all these together and give as a dose . Then in a hole made in a piece of apple drop 30 drops of male fern and give this . I have found the remedy efficacious , also , in the case of hogs troubled with Intestinal worms . J . o . ...
HOR TICULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
HOR TICULTURE . Pomologists will be pained , wherever the English language is spoken , to learn l \ r the death of the venerable and estimable wife of Marshal P Wilder , the best known pomologist of America , and the life long President of the American Pomolog ical Society . Illinois Horticultural Society . The annual meeting of the Illinois Horticulturists , in session at Centralia , was notable not only in attendance of prominent fruit growers of Illinois and other States , but for the elegant decoration of the Opera House , owned , and the use of which was tendered for the meeting by Mr . Sadler , the Mayor of- the city . The decoration was admired for a liberal use of holly branches and berries , from Tennessee and southeast Missouri . The fruit show was one of the best ever made before the Society , consisting of apples , pears , grapes , and other fruits , both in and out of season , earlier varieties having been saved in cold storage . The fruits exhibited were principally fr...
