AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
AGRICULTURAL THE AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTE .-No . 3 . It is now an admitted truth , that as no finite being can either create or destroy a single atom of matter , so no one can increase or diminish the force already in existence . Force may be transformed , but can not be destroyed . All the force in existence has always existed , and will continue to exist forever . Labor—all industry —has then , for its aim and task , tostore up or transform existing force in such way as finally to minister to the life force of man . A net capital is such stored-up force and the material forms in which it resides . The capital of Agriculture appears under two forms : 1 st , the land , which is a store-house of forces , and a machine by which the forces of the air , rain and sun can be gathered and transformed ; and 3 d , accumulated products of land , horses , cattle , seed fertilizers , and the houses and tools , including money necessary to keep , preserve and use these . These are also stored-up f...
HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
HORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN .-NO . 8 . BEANS . For a string-bean the White Wax variety is the best of which I have any knowl . edge . It is very tender , rich , and prolific , and is quite early . For a shell-bean , the old-fashioned Cranberry—a pole or climbing variety—is superior to any of the newer kinds . Beans are fond of a light and sandy soil , and will give a passable crop on poor land . Indeed , it has come to be a common saying among Western people in describing run-down farms , that it is fit for nothing but raising beans . But because beans will grow on poor soil , it by no means follows that they should be kept on short fare . Beans , like aU other vegetables , will pay for the care you give them , and if you want a good crop of them , you must give them something to feed on . The bean that is small and stringy in a thin , worn-out soil , will be large and tender in a rich soil . For pickling , the yard-bean , as it is sometimes called , is a very good variety , as the ...
THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE APIARY ANATOMY OF THE WORKER BEE . In the head are the wonderful antenna by which the bee gauges all its work , discovers friend from foe , and holds intercourse with its fellows . In the sides of the head are set a pair of compound eyes , composed of about 3 , 500 different lenses built together like the cells of a honeycomb . In the center of the forehead are three simple eyes , called stemmata , in the form of a triangle . As the larvse , hatched and reared in their narrow abodes and having no occasion for distant sight , possess these simple eyes only , it may safely be inferred that these are intended for viewing objects close at hand , while the compound eyes are intended for viewing objects more remote . Dissection under the microscope corroborates this idea , as the different ocelli forming the compound eyes are each shown to be an elongated tube like a telescope , with a lens of very slight convexity and presumably of long range . The stemmata , on the other hand , are ...
CROP REPORTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880

The careful perusal of our report this week brought down as it is to the day we go to press , presents a great deal of valuable information to every producer , and dealer in grain and stock . The first fact which is brought out , is that from onehalf to two-thirds of the corn has been marketed . Secondly , that farmers have been feeding less stock and selling more I of their corn than usual ; that while there has been in some localities hog diseases , both cattle ...
MONET AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
MONET AND COMMERCE FINANCE , TUESDAY EVENING . Feb . 17 th . 1880 . The money market remains in much the same condition as at the close of our last weekly review ; there is a moderate demand for loans , but applicants of a desirable character are less plenty than the supply of funds seeking investment in that way , and the loan market is easy at 6 @ 8 per cent . Real Estate loans running two to five years are made on the same rates of interest There has been increased speculation in stocks , and prices of nearly all descriptions of railroad shares are again higher . As stated last week , the outlook is decidedly favorable for another active speculation in stocks ; but whether the speculation will extend to grain and other farm products , and their prices be advanced thereby , largely depends on the prospect for good crops the current season . Railroad freights to lhe seaboard are unchanged , but an early reduction from the present rates may be confidently looked for , as it is very ...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —NO . 5 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —NO . 5 PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING . Inheritance . —That like produces like , or that the offspring resemble the parents , is , as has already been stated , the foundation principle in all breeding . In the case of wild animals this law is so clearly manifested , as a rule , that it might never iave attracted attention unless in some such form as we use the phase— as like as two peas . Many breeders , however , fail to recognize the full extent of tbe law of inheritance—or heredity , as it is sometimes called . It Jseems most reasonable to believe that every characteristic of both parents is transmitted to the offspring , either in a developed or latent form . Tbe fact that obvious characters , such as color , size , or form , either of the body , or of some feature , are usually inherited is not questioned by any one . It is equally true , although the proof of the statement is a trifle more difficult , that mental characteristics , those affecting the vital fun...
LIVE STOCK NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
LIVE STOCK NOTES THERE will be an extensive sale of Shorthorns ( some 300 head ) at Kansas City , Mo ., on the 5 th , 6 th and 7 th of May . THE stock breeders of the Southern States are talking of organizing a Gulf States Breeders Association . Under its auspices it is likely that an annual Fair will be held at New Orleans . The prime object of the organization is protection against the introduction ot inferior stock . AN 816-pound hog was lately killed in Jasper County , Iowa . From point of nose to tip of tail lie measured 7 feet , 8 inches . After his hide was taken off his girth was 6 feet , 8 inches . The fat on sides was 6 inches thick ; 75 pounds of leaf-lard were taken out , A CAB LOAD of Texas hogs created a sensation at the Chicago stock-yards the other day . They heat any thing ever seen therein length of leg , snout and bristles . THAT celebrated Iowa horse , Old Bashaw , died at Litchfield , III ., last month . He was 25 years old . THE export of horses from Great , Br...
VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
VETERINARY LAMENESS OF THE FORE EXTREMITY . RHEUMATISM . Rheumatism of the muscles ot the shoulder is not an uncommon occurrence among horses . The symptoms which arc usually present are very similar to what we find present in cases of sprains . The history of the-case will enable us to distinguish the one from the other , which is sometimes important . If we know of no cause for injury of the muscles of the shoulder we should be on the alert , as horses do not very often become injured from sprain without the driver being cognizant of the fact . As a general rule , horses suffering from rheumatism are more or less indisposed . They are dainty in feeding , have some fever , and suffer great pain in the affected limb—especially if compelled to use it . TREATMENT . —In the treatment of rheumatic inflammation of the muscles of the shoulder we have had excellent success by inserting a seton . We , however , do not advise such cruel treatment until we have given milder remedies a fair tr...

THE D A I R [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE D A I R \ THE NORTHWESTERN DAIRYMENS ASSOCIATION . The meeting of this Association at Harvard last week was an interesting one , and fairly attended . The next No , of the REVIEW will contain a resume of the proceedings from our special correspondent . One of the interesting papers read was by N . W . Morley , of Baraboo , Wis ., who took the first premium on butter at the International Dairy Show in New York : He did not believe that the breed of cows was a matter of importance as far as the . quality of butter is concerned , but that good treatment of the cows is of vital importance . Pure water should be supplied in abundpnce . He feeds his cows on corn meal and oat meal , mixing two quarts of the former with one of the latter , four quarts a day , and a pint of oil cake . Methods of raising cream were next looked upon as being with equal importance with providing a cool temperature and a pure atmosphere where the milk stands . He advised that the milk-room should be frequent...
PRESERVATION OF MILK . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
PRESERVATION OF MILK . Dr . De Klenze in a letter to the Agricultural Gazette says : In some cases it will be necessary to keep the milk sweet an exceptional length of time , or make it keep under very trying circumstances . We have already stated two means for attaining this end—cooling and airing . The papers are full of advertisements of preserving compounds , but by analysing them they will be found to contain nearly always the same substances in slightly altered proportions , and they are generally sold for from four to several hundred times their value . These compounds are bicarbonate of soda , sometimes mixed with common salt , boric acid , borax , mixtures of borax with common salt , salicylic acid , and of late a mixture contain , ing half of boric acid and half of sulphate potassium . Bicarbonate of soda has been in use a long time , and is still largely used . It acts by neutralizing the lactic acid which is formed in the milk , but its action is not perfect in any way ,...
THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 19 February 1880
THE POULTRY YARD POULTRY FARMING . Exclusive poultry farming has as yet found but few profitable followers either in this country or abroad . The most that the best English authorities dare to say on the subject is , that it is a possible thing . In view of the fact that in the ordinary branches of agriculture England is so beaten by American competition it has become a subject of earnest enquiry , whether or not large poultry farms may not be made to pay . Mr . Lewis Wright , the wellknown author of various standard works on poultry , is engaged in considering the subject , and presents his views through the columns of the Fancier s Gazette . In speaking of the many who scout the idea that , except as kept in small lots , fowls can not be made to pay , he says : When a man goes so far as to affirm that any given branch of production can not pay , except under such limited conditions as he lays down , he demands such very large respect for his own individual opinion , that it is imp...
