The Cost of Making a Pound of Beef [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
The Cost of Making a Pound of Beef [¦^¦ A By Pl of - Thoinas Shaw . HE cost of making a pound of ( beef will be largely dependent upon the following conditions , viz .: 1 . The character of the material from which it is made . 2 . The relative value of the foods used in making it . 3 . The degree of the comfort in which the animals can be kept while it is being made . 4 . The age of the animal . 5 . The knowledge and skill of the feeder ; and , 6 . The cost of marketing the nnished product . Other considerations bear upon the question and exercise some influence upon it , but not in the same degree , probably , as the influences that have been named . CHAEACTER OP THE MATERIAL . B REED will materially influence the cost of making a pound of beef . The more that the blood of the animal to be grown into meat has been diluted by dairy blood , the greater relatively will be the cost of growing a pound of beef . But the difference in the cost of growing a pound of what may be termed dair...

beautiful Pears in Northern Illinois [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
beautiful Pears in Northern Illinois S OME pcurs were produced in Stephenson county this season . Among them were Duchess and Keiffer ; the trees in many instances were heavily loaded yielding a handsome profit . This simply proves that trees are often profitable even if they do not bear every year , as they sometimes yield enough in one season to cover all the fruitless years with profit . Peaches were also frequently found . On Cedar Springs Farm , near this city , owned by my father , Mr . A . H . Wise , a few very -choice white peaches were raised . They were of excellent flavor . The fruit growers of northern Illinois must continue to plant and replant trees , using hardy varieties and listing promising sorts offered by reliable nurserymen only . These instances of fruit production have created some enthusiasm which will no doubt result in more liberal planting of the pear and peach in northern Illinois . John M . Wise . Stephens : ** .

Wisconsin Fruits at Omaha [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
Wisconsin Fruits at Omaha ¦¦ W ISCONSIN State Horticultural Society voted an appropriation of one thousand dollars for a two months display of fruits at the TransMississippi Exposition . It seemed an unreasonable arrangement that so high a price should be charged for space when no premiums were to be paid for fruits . The exhibition surpassed the expectation of all . The marked difference between states was from the effect produced by water application . Where drouth prevailed the fruit was small . When you passed into the states that depend on irrigation the size was very marked . Wolf River apples , grown in Wisconsin , weighc-d twenty ounces and one in Montana 32 % ounces , and other varieties in like proportion . Wisconsin never made -a finer show and for the number of square feet no state without irrigation made a better show of apples than Wisconsin . We are justly proud of our seedlings , about which we will write later . Geo . J . Kellogg . . Janesville , Wisconsin .

Swine Breeding and Feeding * [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
Swine Breeding and Feeding * By A . J . Love joy .- ¦ THE hog has without doubt been the source of more clear profit to the American farmer than any other class of live stock kept on- the farm . There may be instances where the dairy cow has possibly proven more profitable , but this was for the specialist , not the general farmer , and I am talking of the general or average farmer . To make the most money the farmer should keep one of the well known breeds—the one that suits his fancy . They are all good when properly handled . Just now there is a great howl about the Bacon Hog , some going so far as to recommend the original razorback and the Tamworth , which is an own cousin of the razorback . It seems to me simply ridiculous to consider this question , of changing breeds entirely to produce fine bacon and hams . Better by far change our system of breeding and feeding . Instead of breeding year after year from immature animals and feed ing nothing but corn , change our methods , ...

Modern Hives as Winter Hives [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
Modern Hives as Winter Hives By A . H . Duff . RHE latest improved hives and intended solely for the manipulation of bees in summer to secure the largest amount of money , and to be used as a winter hive without additional protection of some kind , will not prove successful . These hives being shallow , the honey must necessarily be stored at the sides of the bees as they cluster in a compact form in winter . When bees are wintered in these thin , swallow hives they are in danger of starving with plenty of honey to the hive . * * * POURING long continued cold weather in - winter , bees remain in a compact body and cannot move in any direction except straight upwards , thus following their own heat as it naturally rises , and all honey directly above them they can reach . These hives being shallow , but little is stored above the bees , and in many cases none at all , the total reserve being at the sides of the hive , and entirely out of the bees reach . If the weather is not extreme...
Poultry Raising as a Business [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
Poultry Raising as a Business IX all occupations it is the strict observance of business principles that result in success . Raising poultry is no exception to this rule , and those who have aud are making the business a decided success are but receiving the reward that follows the faithful application of strictly business methods . This so-called luck good or bad . says the Indiana Farmer , is merely the effect of proper or- improper methods . It is a matter of wonder that men of intelligence , who know perfectly well that certain things are necessary to observe , will half observe or carry them out , and then , when the natural results of cause and effect follow , lay the poor success on luck . Luck is thus made an excuse for all manner of carelessness shiftlessness , incompetency , laziness and sheer ignorance . Success in poultry culture is no haphazard affair , but is secured only , by , regular methods , and the closer the application and more careful and earnest , the greater...
The French Oleomargarine Law [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 24 November 1898
The French Oleomargarine Law By P . W- Moseley . * THE manufacturers of oleomargarine in this country who think our laws controlling their product are severe , will find by looking into the law passed by the government of France , last April , that it is much more severe . It requires all manufacturers to be registered , and the material used in the fabrication . of oleomargarine to be . indicated . Plans of the buildings and such declarations have to be submitted to the mayor of the commune or the prefect of the department , who are to forward them to the ministry of . agriculture .. Any changes made in the manufacture or buildings must be declared within three days . All oleomargarine factories are to be under the surveillance of one or more special inspectors , appointed for the purpose by the ministry of agriculture , and the opening and closing of factories must be declared to the inspectors by the proprietors or their agents .

T iHE following sent out by the Kan- . ; sas Agricultural College at Man- g ; hattan , Kan ., in regard . to their * Dairy School which opens Jan . 3 , 1899 , and continues till March 25 , 1899 , contains much that is applicable to dairying in other states and localities and is worthy of consideration by all who are interested in progressive dairying or in taking a course of study at a dairy school : In Kansas there are ! many young men and women who are interested in dairy work who feel that they can not afford to take the whole four years course of the college but could attend the twelve weeks of the Dairy School . And the question they ask is , will it pay ? A consideration of some of the conditions met by these young people will help to answer their question . s . * * * A LARGE part of the dairy business of Kansas is carried on by creameries , and one of the problems which bothers the patron is Keeping the milk sweet until delivered at the skimming station . ...
