SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 May 1841
SHEEP. 'Shbrp have gol-ten feet, o«d whorrver the print «( them ap pears, the soil is turned into gold.'— Submsu I'rovf.iib. The following observations, which it is hoped may prove acceptable to the farmer, are from an excellent little treatise on the sheep by Black lock, of Dumfries. The mode of treatment for the two Jiost common diseases, foot-rot and scab, is, it will be perceived, different to that given by some authors; the judicious farmer will choose between them : — ' They have received the name of Merino from a peculiar buff or reddish hue of the countenance, and are supposed to have come originally from Africa ; at least Marcus Columella, having seen a strange variety from that country exhibited tit Rome, during some public games of shows, took them to his farm, and having crossed them with the breeds of Tarentuin, sent the offspring to Spain. There they throve remarkably, attracting the attention of other nations, to whom they were from time to time exported, and at prese...
MISCELIANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 May 1841
MISCELLANEOUS. M. Dagtierre. — [From an unknown corre spondent.] — It may be interesting to the readers of the Athenmim. to learn that M. Daguerre be lieves himself to be on the eve of completing an importautiiuprovpjnentin-photogenic delineation; he expects to be able to produce instantaneously the effect hitherto resulting from the action of solar light, during a certain period, on the pre pared plates; and thus to have the means of obtaining as accurate pictures of moving objects, as have as yet been given of still objects only. If M. Daguerre's anticipations be realised to the extent which he has stated, the value of his process will be greatly increased, although the faithful pictures taken in this way will not produce the ' same impression on the sense of sight, as the moving objects themselves do, ami may therefore disappoint expectation. — Atfienawn:
ON PREVENTING SMUT IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 May 1841
ON PREVENTING SMUT IN WHEAT. (From the Mark Lane Express.) Sin, — I observe, from the letters of several of your correspondents, that the preparation of seed wheat, so as to prevent smut, is an object which excites iMich attention at the present time. During the muny years of experience I have had, I have found lime and water, judiciously applied, to be quite strong enough for the cure, and stronger applications often injurious. I have never suffered loss on account of smut, and my rule is, to mix (the day before sowing) the seed wheat with quick caustic lime, and watering it afterwards, letting it lie on floor until next morning 12 inches thick, and next morning moistened before put oui into bags. It is important to mix wheat and lime dry, that the lirne may find its way into the tufts and crevices of the wheat. — Yours respectfully. Noiiinykam, Se}-t. 8, 1840. Brandy and Salt. — A small tract has been published by W. Lee, Esq., of Leeds, on the ex c jllent properties of brandy and...

POISONOUS PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 26 May 1841
POISONOUS PLANT. The Committee appointed by the Agricultural Society to inquire into the effects of certain le guminous plants upon animal life, has made a re port of the different experiments resorted to, which will be found below. Fiom the various conflicting opinions we have heard on the subject, and from a knowledge of the fact that tlic sus pected plant belonged to a tribe, which in all parts of the world has been proved to be not only * innocuous, but good and wholesome food, we hail been led to hope that the experiments of the Com mittee would have demonstrated that the plant was not of a poisonous nature. But however un willing persons may be to confess it, the experi ments detailed below appear to us to be conclu sive as to the deadly qualities of the plant, and any longer to dispute its poisonous nature would be arguing against facts. We leave it to botanists to reconcile the singular exception which this plant affords to the general rule ; many of the productions of this ...
