The Codling Moth . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868

The Codling Moth . In a recent number of T HE WESTERN RURAL , a correspondent says he wants reliable information ln regard to the appleworm ( Carpocapsa pommteVa ) , / as during the past season fruit growers have sustained great losses from the ravages of this Insect . He wants correct information as to the precise lime when the egg ls deposited In the apple or blossom , and . in how short a time the worm may reach that state of maturity in which it makes its exit from the apple , descends to the earth and is metamorphosed into a miller , again to carry on its work of destruction by making fresh deposits . If the writer had been an attentive reader of THE WESTERN BUBAL during the past year , he must have seen a full description of the habits of the apple-worm and tbe best means of preventing Us attacks upon fruit . We bave frequently stated that in the latter part of June and the beginning of July the codling moths lay their eggs in the blossom ends of the young fruit . They dont pu...

The " Great West" and Its Future . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868

The Great West and Its Future . The Sacramento , Cai ., Union mirrors the present and the future of our Western country in the following style : The good people of St . Louis appear to be in earnest expectation that at some day , not distant , they may influence Congress to remove the capital of tbe nation to tbat city . ¦ They have resolved , through their Common Council , to that end and operated on the State Legislature with good effect . They have already fixed upon the site of the new building , and are preparing to survey the needful ten miles square , to include the beautiful location of Jefferson Barracks and the classic precincts of Vide Poche . Chicago hasher pretensions as well as St . Louis , and she will hardly compromise them away . The Northwest Is outgrowing the Southwest , and the Northwest will go for Chicago . They will be apt to find upon trial that the measure cannot carry yet . Sooner or later , however , the national capital must go to the West ; That vast reg...

— • ¦ . More about the Surprise Oats . Last year 1 procured oats for seed from the original proprietor , and sowed them about two weeks later than my common field oats ; also , on poor soil , for the purpose of testing their merits , if they had any . Although they were sown late , and under the most unfavorable cirjumstances , they were found to yield at the rate of 100 bushel 8 _ Per acre , weighing 40 pounds per bushel . [ We suppose it is meant that 100 bushels by weight was the product , and that a —! £ > l y measure would weigh 46 pounds . The straw grows large and strong , stool \ Ing most wonderfully .

Does It Pay to Raise Flax ? ' [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868

Does It Pay to Raise Flax ? In the Spring of 1866 a Chicago house shipped a quantity of flax seed to this station , and furnished it to such f _ riners as would raise it , binding them to sell the crop to them in the Fall at the market price , less freight , etc . Those who raised lt received , in the Fall , $ 3 per bushel , with an average of eight bushels to the acre— $ 24 per acre . This at once gave the farmers around here the flax fever , and last year nearly every one sowed flax fields of from five to eighty acres , and 25 , 000 bushels have already been shipped from here , with over 5 , 000 more yet to come , from last year s crop . For this an average price of $ 2 . 20 has been paid . Now , the question is , Does it pay to raise flax , even when the price Is $ 3 per bushel ? Does it , or not , weaken the land , so that in the long run the flax crop is a loss ? I should be pleased to hear from those who have given it a thorough trial , as it Is becoming a question of vital im...

Bangh ' s Raw-Bone Phosphate . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868

Bangh s Raw-Bone Phosphate . A farmer writing to the Northwestern Fertilizing Co ., of Chicago , says he used BAUOH S Raw-Bone Phosphate last Spring , and found it to be all its friends claimed for it—used it on corn , broom corn , potatoes , strawberries , and the various kinds of vegetables , with the most satisfactory results . Another one say s , owing to tiie excessive wet weather his corn did not mature properly , but he is satisfied where he applied the Phosphate there was 50 per cent , more corn than where it was not used . Another used It on eight-rowed yellow flint corn which he found to be larger and more prolific than formerly—the ears being 11 to 12 inches long , and three-fourths of the crop showing 12 to 14 rows per ear—this land was in a high sta . e of cultivation , and had never given such results before . The originals of the above letters may be seen hy any farmer who will call upon the manufacturers of Bangh s Raw-Bone Phosphate , whose office is in the Commerci...

Angora Cats . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 4 April 1868
