Is Salt a Necessity ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Is Salt a Necessity ? It has been urged that salt ls not an absolute necessity for stock , as it adds nothing to the value of- the food while increasing the desire for liquids . It is doubtful if those who declaim aa-ainst frequent use of salt have given the subject a practical investigation . Anyone who is familiar with the composition of salt ls aware that muriatic acid can easily be manufactured from it , and as the gastric juice of the stomach is somewhat similar in composition to the acid it is plain that salt performs an important function in the digestion of food . Herbivorous animals , in their wild condition , have been known to travel many miles to procure it , instinct teaching them that a natural want of the system must be fulfilled . Experiments that have been conducted demonstrate that , salt promotes health , smooths the hair and softens the skin , as well as promoting digestion . The difficulty in using salt is that it is not allowed regularly . Some give too much , ...
National Convention ofSwine-Dreeders and Pork Dealers . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
National Convention ofSwine-Dreeders and Pork Dealers . A call , signed by Mr . D .. W . Smith , President , and Mr . J . Tabor Mathers , Secretary , Jacksonville , 111 ., has been issued , which states that the restrictions whioh various foreign governments have placed upon the importation of the American hog products into their respective countries have not only seriously affected the prosperity of those persons directly Interested ln the breeding of swine , but have also , to a very considerable extent , affected the general welfare by causelng a large shrinkage of our coin imports . The workingmen of France and Germany have also been made to suffer from the mistaken policy of their governments in depriving them of their principal supply of cheap and wholesome meats . The interests involved are far more extended than merely those of the personal ones of the swine-breeder . But inasmuoh as the breeder is the most direotly and vitally interested in maintaining the reputation of his...
A Great Yield . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
A Great Yield . There are many tests of the greatness of our country . The tomato test is one not to be derided . Statistics published by the special journals of the grocers trade show that the tomato pack in the United States for the year 1884 has been 2 , 021 , 177 cases containing 48 , 508 , 248 cans . This is enough to supply every man , woman , and child in Great Britain and Ireland , Sweden , Norway , Holland and Switzerland each with a can of tomatoes and have 17 , 567 cans left over . Nevertheless , it has been a poor year for tomato packing . In 1883 there were packed 2 , 943 , 579 cases containing 70 , 545 , 896 cans . This was enough to supply , besides the inhabitants of the countries above named , those also of , Denmark , Belgium , Portugal , Greece , Roumania and Servia each with a can , and- have 797 , 089 cans left over towards the necessities of Turkey . Yet it is scarcely three-quarters of a century since the first tomato ever grown in this country was raised from...

Oats as Food For Colts . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Oats as Food For Colts . While the colts are housed for the winter there is no grain better suited to their growth than oats , which do not tend to fatten them as readily as will corn , but largely contributes to bone and fibrous formation . A colt will gxow much faster when allowed to stand by the side of its dam and eat at will from the trough with her and receive additional nourishment , whenever desired , from the udder . If colts are late , and but little work is required of the mare , there will be no necessity for weaning the colt as long as it prefers ft draw milk . It will keep in better order , grow faster , and be all the better with such treatment , provided the quarters are ample and comfortable .

The Breeds and the Dressed Carcasses [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
The Breeds and the Dressed Carcasses Judging on the hoof is not a sure method of determining the merits of rival animals , and nothing more forcibly demonstrates this fact than the sacrificing of the prize animals to the butchers block in order that every part of their carcasses may be minutely and favorably ; ompared for the purpose of determining v .-jerein each excels over the other . Of all the prize animals Clarence , the white steer , alone held the position awarded him while on the hoof . The prizes were not awarded to those animals that produced the largest proportion of profitable weight , but according to the quality of the carcass . If the actual weight be taken as the test the grade Shorthorn , President , is entitled to the first premium , as he dressed eighty-one per cent , while Clarence , Hoosier , Black Prince , and Linnet , dressed eighty per cent of profitable weight . Chicago , who was awarded the first premium for three-year-olds , a Shorthorn , dressed seventy-...

Clover on Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Clover on Wheat . Although we have not passed over January , yet it is not too soon to consider the importance of sowing clover for next seasons catch . The reason why one should take hold of the matter soon is that it never occurs to farmers that they can save labor in-the summer by procuring seed now and cleaning it from seeds of weeds and other undesirable plants . We are aware that many farmers will rebel and revolt at the task of cleaning clover seed , but it will pay to do it , as this month is an idle one , and the help may as well be employed cleaning seed as doing nothing . To clean the seed with a fan mill and sieves , will not eradicate some seeds , and the clover seed should be slowly examined and assorted , or at least as-many foreign seeds should be removed by examination as possible . We suggest the above , and know the advice will not be followed in many cases , but as clover seed is not always pure , to clean it at this season will be found profitable in the end . W...

Foretelling the Weather . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Foretelling the Weather . Although scientists have for centuries used their utmost endeavors to devise some method by which a knowledge of the weather previous to a certain period may be attained , yet the attempted demonstrations of such have ended in failure . Occasionally some one creates an excitement , as did Wiggins , but such failures only serve to lessen public confidence in more practical tests . In regard to foretelling the weather , a writer in the Rural Californiaii states that by making close observation for thirty-two years , noting passing events and collecting statistics , he can toll what kind of a season we will have after certain things have occurred that give indications . For instance , he says ; In the first place , a dry winter is invariably preceded by a dry summer , and a wet winter by I a wet or moist summer . That is , in the summers that precede the dry winters , but little dew falls and there are but few fogs , and those fogs are very dry , hardly wettin...
A Quarter Section Not Enough . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
A Quarter Section Not Enough . A recent writer has written a series of articles endeavoring to prove that one hundred and sixty acres are not enough . In comparison , he selects two farmers as example , one cultivating a farm of 200 acres and another a farm of 40 acres , the advantages in favor of the large farmer being thus stated : One has to expend just as much for farm machinery as the other . And this holds good in respect to the large majority of the minor implements used upon the farm . The farmer of 40 acres must expend very nearly as much for tools and implements , and pay just the same rate ot interest , or lose just the same rate of interest , upon that investment , as the farmer of five times that number of acres , and whose income is five times as great . Making all due allowances , we shall vet find that necessary tools and machinery cost the farmer upon 40 acres fully three times per acre what they do the farmer upon five times that number of acres . In short , the ex...
Holsteins as Beef Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
Holsteins as Beef Cattle . We believe that each particular breed exoels in some points over others , and that no breed combines all the desirable qualities necessary to make a perfect animal . In fact , perfection has not yet been attained , even in that direction where most desired , as no limit seems to obstruct progress or improvement in any quarter . While we do not claim that the Holsteins excel as beef or butter producers as a class ( though far excelling all other breeds for milk ) , yet they are no doubt the nearest approaches to a combination of those three essentials than any other cattle In this country . A bull calf of the Holstein breed has been known to gain over three pounds per day for two months , while for shorter periods as much as four and a half pounds have been reached daily . Iaap , a young bull , less than eleven months old , weighed 1 , 200 pounds , and during a month of the time gained over five pounds a day . Such rate of gain demonstrates that the Holstei...

A KISS IN THE RAIN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
A KISS IN THE RAIN . BY SAMUEL MIXTEBN PECK . One stormy morn I chanced to meet A lassie In i / ie town ; Iter locks were like the ripened wheat . Her laughing eyes were brown . • I watched her as she tripped along Till madness filled my brain , Ami then , and then—I know twas wrong—I kissed her In the rain ! With rain drops shining on her cheek . Like dew drops on a rose , The Utile lassie strove to speak . My boldness to oppose ; She strove In vain , and quivering Her finger stole in mine ; A ml l / ien the birds began to sing , The sun began to shine . Oh , let the clouds grow dark above , Mv heart Is light below ; Tie always summer when we love . However wliuls may blow ; And Pm as proud as any prime , All honors I disdain : She says lam her rain beau since I kissed her in the rain . —Countryside .

THEEEFATES . ADA E . B . The threads our hearts In blindness spin . No self-determined plan weaves In , Tlte shuttle of the unseenpowers Works out apattern not as ours . The soft twilight of a hot June day was fast merging into darkness . Overhead , Venus , camly beautiful , shone clear and resplendant , while an occasional pale star blinkingly awoke to its mission , and added its faint light to the peaceful scene . The cool , tinkling notes of a fountain near by echoed upon the still , flower-scented air . A light breeze , just rising , rustled tho leaves of the splendid maples which lined the broad avenuo , and fanned tbe flushed cheeks of three maidens , ln the spring time of life , who stood , with arms entwined , just outside of a rustic arbor , on Dr . Warrington s lawn . What a perfect summer night this is ! exclaimed one , humming low 0 , summer night , So softly bright as she raised her large , dreamy eyes to the planet . Yes , said the blue-eyed Viola , but , Pansy , for m...
AT SUNSET . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 January 1885
AT SUNSET . BY SARAH DOUDNEY . Three curlews gray As the hissing spray . Flew low vi the red of the dying day • Flew shrieking far . Where a purple bar Of sunset prisoned the evening star . The winds went by . With a shrill sea cry , Twtxl the red on the flood , and the red In the sky , Wlten my love and my sweet . With her folded feet , I laid where the w lld waves clamor and beat . On the desolate strand Of a lonely land , Her dead hands locked from my clinging hand , Purple as tefne , In tlte sunset shine , The salt spray gleamed on her face divine . And I kissed her there . On lips ami hair , While my soul cried out , in a fierce despair : Oh for the pain Of the kisses vain On lips that kiss not back again ! I loosed the salt Of a shallop pale . That rocked with the rocking sea and gale . And—a- tender grace On her fair , young faceDrifted away . Through the shadow gray Far Into the end of the dying day .
