Some Theories Not Supported . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Some Theories Not Supported . A correspondent of the Home and Farm , says that practical experiments by those who have given attention to the matter , especially the professors of some agricultural colleges , prompts them to promulgate the following : In seeking to improve the common barnyard fowls of the country by crossing with the pure races , a great mistake was made , the crosses or grades proving inferior to either parent . Common fowls may be vastly improved by careful selection in breeding , and the pure races can be kept up to the standard by avoiding in-and-in breeding , but the attempt to improve by crossing has never been satisfactory . Which is news to many . We have never seen any such doctrine urged in any agricultural report . Our experience teaches that by judiciously crossing the breeds of poultry we combine hardiness , prolificacy , size , and quality . But the following was a novelty : In the matter of Incubators , the best were found only equal to the task of su...
APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
APIARY . What California Bees Do . Mr . H . C . Bliss , in a letter to th . eB . adne Agriculturist ) among other matters has this upon bees . It reads nicely , but unfortunately it is still an undetermined question whether bees injure grapes or other sweet fruits , unless first punctured by birds : I saw a bee hive about six feet tall from which they had taken seven hundred and seventy pounds of honey , and seventy pounds of wax in one year . It was sage honey too , and I tasted it carefully to see if there was any lingering taste of the shrub , but it was perfectly pure and sweet . By sage , I do not mean the sage bush of the plains , but sage , such as wo of the east grow in our gardens , and nice old ladies make tea of for colds and fevers . It grows wild out in some parts of the State , on the hills and mountains . You build your apiary at the foot of the hill or mountain and the bees do the climbing themselves . There are other things a bee does that he does nt often get credi...
FISH POND . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
FISH POND . About Carp . The Editor of Journal of Carp Vulture , speaking from the standpoint of an enthusiast , of course , discourses about the carp in Europe , and the table qualities of the fish in this country . To our taste , however , the carp , while not inferior to other pond fish inhabiting unused waters is by no means to be compared to our game fish inhabiting our lakes and streams . The conclusions of the writer is as follows : ¦ In Europe many thousand acres of artificial waters are to . be found . In these enormous quantities of carp are bred . Some of these ponds , or rather lakes , have an extent of about 1 , 000 to 2 , 000 acres . They are provided with gigantic dams , many of them 60 feet high . By these tho water is closed in into broad valleys , containing nootherfishesthan carps from four to five pounds in weight . If we consider the size of these lake-like ponds , surrounded by enormous dams which are overgrown with oak-trees 100 to 800 years old , series of th...
MI SCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
MI SCELLANEOUS . Labor Saves Labor . Labor bestowed at a season of the year when the farm work is not pressing often returns twofold at a time when it is most fn demand . This is demonstrated in the following paragraph by a correspondent of the Rural New Yorker : If any one will try cutting his hay and stalks - „„/ ihnddine . too ) one winter , he will be conllnced tffit pays . And it pays in more ways M .. S one It pays in making the feed go farther . It navs when fie cleans Sis stables . It Jays wliraihe cleans out Ms manure pit , and it pays when be spreads his manure , and plows or harmw ? it under in the field . Last winter he cut Ths hay and bedding one inch long , and his stalks one-fourth of an inch long with a fodder cutter driven by a one-horse power , and the results will induce him to do so again this win The FARM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN has urged tbe importance of following the above suggestion in order to derive the best results from feeding ; but we take also another vie...
The Application of Manures . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
The Application of Manures . Manure , being the foundation of a farmers business , deserves more attention than anything else on the farm . Experience bas taught nearly all fanners that the soil gives a greater reward when well manured than otherwise , and most of them aro satisfied with the mere performance ot spreading it out , as well as acting on the principle that the quicker the job is over the better ; but tt is a mistake to suppose that the duty of collecting and distributing manure is all that is necessary . There are substances composing fertilizers that are insoluble , and these ore inert for want of being made available , as no plant can take up from the soil those inactive portions . The soluble substances only are used , and to derive the greatest benefit from manure , it should , therefore , be well rotted and fine and have been kept in good condition . Ammonia , phosphoric acid and potash are the prime substances of the manure heap , The first is very volatile , and ...

Water Eoute To The Pacific . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Water Eoute To The Pacific . It is a matter of surprise to many that the President should favor Eade s Tehuantepeo Ship Railway and seemingly , also , De Lesseps canal project . The latter never could be under American control . Its cost will be so enormous that the rates can never be satisfactory , if any interest is paid on the bonds . The care and management of it will be like the Black Hole of Calcutta , in the victims to malaria and tropical diseases , that will be sacrificed . Eade s plan is a little too much in the line of pure experiment . Our sailors look askance at it . The cost is still problematical , with the extraordinary and un- » vneoted results of the Eade s jetties at the mouth of the Mississippi , against accepting the inventor s estimates . On th 3 o * ner hand , the Nicaraguan route is healthy , comparatively cheap , and as already arranged , can be tinder the control of the United States . There is a natural water-way which can be utilized , so that with the co...
An Oily Swindler . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
An Oily Swindler . A sharp swindler is reported in the person of one who went by the name of R . v . S . Chapin , who has passed East , perhaps under many aliases . He claimed to be a large Kansas land owner , seeking stock for his ranch , and one of his drives was to claim to have fallen in love with the little Jerseys . He never haggled much about prices , if only the seller would accept a draft on a Western bank , larger than the purchase , he getting the difference in money . It is not businesslike to * give a balance in cash on a draft to a man you do not know or who is not known to tho business community of your neighborhood . It is not businesslike even to accept a draft in payment of property , until by telegraph to the bank you find it good .
A Big Beef Contract . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
A Big Beef Contract . A contract to furnish 2 , 200 , 000 pounds of beef for the French army , awarded to the Fairbank Canning Company of Chicago , from the French Government , should be a matter of congratulation to the American people . It is especially noteworthy from the fact that it was obtained , in competition as against all the great canning centers of the world , including South America , which country has furnished large supplies for the French Government . It shows that the prejudice in one European nation , at least , in regard to American beef is dying out . Every piece of meat in the samples was analyzed by French Government chemists . The firm has only three months in which to complete the contract . The beef is to be put up in packages of two and onefifth pounds , and each can is to be furnished with a metal loop so that the soldier may attach it to his belt . The firm is now killing 1 , 000 to 1 , 200 cattle a day on this order , and 25 , 000 head will be required t...
Thinned Down and Oat . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Thinned Down and Oat . A great stock waterer is dead , and one who inherited the love of watering stock from his father , who watered Hew York Central Railroad stock from 1867 on , to the extent of $ 48 , 084 , 200 . It might seem that this has no connection with live stock . Not sol the stock still lives , and like the phoenix , never dies but resurrects itself again and again . Another proof that it is live stock , is in the fact that it is being fed day by day . But it may be suggested that it is not stock connected \* iith agriculture . Nothing could be more • illusory . The bulk of the money paid to the great railroad corporation comes from the farmers , whose produce is _ carried . Hence it is closely connected with agriculture . The feeding of this sort of live stock too often takes the very life-blood both of agriculture and manufactures . It is a heartless business . Those who carry it on , can hardly deserve to be lauded , even in their death , as benefactors . Unfortunate...
The President ' s Message . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
The President s Message . There is more than one good thing in the Presidents message , though probably few persons could agree to every recommendation . It would be difficult for -the bitterest partisan not to commend what he says favoring the Mexican treaty . . His suggestion of a commission of six citizens to co-operate with the Indian Bureau in settling the troublesome Indian problems , is a wise one . It is not unlike a measure suggested by Grant , which resulted in the Board of Indian Commissioners , which has been in existence since 18 G 8 . The Interior Department had of late grown jealous of this Board , and would not recommend to Congress adequate appropriation . In this way , its usefulness has , within a few years past , been greatly curtailed . Should Congress act favorably on the President s suggestion , and should the members of the new Commission be practical men who will visit the Indian country as the President suggests , and thus become informed of the exact facts...
The Message On Mormomsm . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
The Message On Mormomsm . Nothing better has been written upon Utahs twin ** filicof barbarism , than the passage in the Presidents message . We are unwilling that any of our readers should miss its vigorous English , pure patriotism and wholesome piety ; its distinct recognition of the sanctity of marriage , and the sweet and sacred influences of home and the family affections ; its reference to the old fashioned respect for the father of the family , the love and reverence for the mother , and the relation of the well-ordered household to the Republic . Whether it was written by the President himself or by his able and womanly sister , as is now alleged , no nobler passage can be found in any State paper since Washington s Farewell Address . We quote in full : The strength , the perpetuity and the destiny of the nation rest upon our homes established by the law of God , guarded by parental care , * regulated by parental authority , and sanctified by parental love . These are not t...
"Disposedto Strike Back . " [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 19 December 1885
Disposedto Strike Back . This is what Bishop Faust , of Salt Lake City , is reported to have said of his fellowMormons . The assertion of United States authority , the execution of national law , the arrest of Mormon criminals , their trial in Federal courts and confinement either in Government penetentiaries or U . S . Army forts—all these are outrages that ought to be resented , as the redoubtable Bishop avers . The concentration of troops a £ Fort Douglas is , he thinks , the very climax of outrages . He is at the safe distance of St . Louis , where he had gone as the chairman of the Utah delegation of cattlemen , to attend the recent convention . So he boldly declares that the Mormons are aroused , and disposed to strike back . Gen . O . O . Howard , in whose department and by whose orders the late military movements have taken place , does not report any increase of arousement , so to speak , or any very manifest disposition to strike back , —especially since Battery B marched ...
