Barnyard Filth , [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

Barnyard Filth , Manure begins to decompose the moment it is voided by the animal . It is then a mass of festering , fermenting material , and undergoes gradual change , forming new elements , retaining portions and liberating others . The deadly gases that poison the bodies of human individuals and animals are daily sent up into the atmosphere , mingling with that which we breathe , and contaminating it to a great distance . Though we attach importance to manure on account oi its real intrinsic value , yet it is filth , and as much so as though the carcass of some animal polluted the air with its obnoxious effluvia . Not only is carbonic acid gas , sulphuretted hydrogen gas , phosphuretic hydrogen gas , and light carbunetted hydrogen gas evolved , but others that are formed at different stages of decomposition . Even ammonia is detrimental , and plainly makes its presence known to any one who is not deprived of the power of detecting foul odors . The decaying mass is filth in its w...

Measuring Standing Grain . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

Measuring Standing Grain . An officer In the English navy has constructed a table for estimating , with all needful accuracy , the amount of wheat on an acre of land , before it is harvested . The estimate can be made as soon as the grain is ripe . Make a wood or iron frame one vard square , carefully let it down over the standing grain , and then shell and weigh all the grain on the straws belonging inside that frame . If a circular crop form , as he calls it , is more convenient , make it six feet nine and a quarter inches in diameter , of half-inch iron . From his elaborate table , we extract the following ; 2 ounces )« r wjr . yard equals 10 . 08 bushels per acre .

A Hint about Sowing Seeds . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

A Hint about Sowing Seeds . One of the most successful seed sowers we have known , says the Germantown Telegraph , allows his garden ground to get rather dry before putting in the seed He then stretches a line where the seeds are to go , sows the seed on the surface and then walks sideways along the line , pressing the seed with the flat of his foot . He says that he has never had a seed miss , and so sows them thinly just where every plant is to grow . By this method there is not only no waste of seed , but no time is lost in thinning out . There is no raking in of the seed , the whole being as simple as possible . In the portion of tbe garden adapted to flowers , the women of the family take it in hand . Their flowers always grow , and a paper of seed of each is as much as is necessary for the whole garden . These seeds are , in the manner sown , directly on the surface , and then the ground is patted with the trowel and the flowers make their appearance in about half of the ordin...

Why Wet Lands Should be Brained . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

Why Wet Lands Should be Brained . Says Sir J . B . Lawes : When land is saturated with water , aquatic plants of little or no value are those which flourish ; the fertility of the soil is locked lip , and if the cultivator wishes to avail himself of this fertility , and by its means to grow agricultural plants , he must remove the superfluous water . Just as without pumping you cannot avail yourself ot the coal or copper which lies in the mines beneath the surface , so in like manner you cannot unlock the fertility of the soil unless you allow air to take the place of the water . In agriculture , the plants perform the part of tbe miner in separting the valuable material from the mass of the soil , which material they afterward , by the aid of the sun and the atmosphere , manufacture into food for man and animals . The inherent properties of the soil are thus made available , and that which was before of little or no value becomes most valuable ; corn and meat are produced and are s...

THE GARDEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

THE GARDEN . Lima Beans Without Stakes . Mr . McAfee , Superintendent of the University of Wisconsin Experimental Farm , informs us that for three years past he has grown Lima beans without poles or stakes , by persistent pinching back after they reach the desired height —about that of common bunch beans . He is confident the crop is very perceptibly earlier and thinks lt is increased in quantity—the plant being checked in its growth of vine , expending its energy ln fruit production . More Eemedies for _ Cabbage Worms . As anything that is worthv of trial should be made known , we give the following as an addition to the remedies made known in our last : One pound of whale-oil soap dissolved in six gallons of water , and applied two or three times during the season . Two hundred grains of Persian insect powder mixed with two gallons of water and sprinkled on the plants . Twenty parts of super-phosphate of lime , three parts of fresh , air-slaked lime , and one part of carbolic powd...

The Brahma as a Hardy Fowl . The Brahma is a hardy fowl , which is due to several causes . In the first place it feathers very slowly when young , and consequently there is not that drain on its vitality at an early age due to the constant demand on the system caused by rapid feathering . In the next place , though feathering slowly , they feather completely when the process is finished , becoming not only well covered with feathers but plenty of fluff also . This enables them to stand the cold well , as the heavy bodily covering keeps them much warmer than is the case with many other breeds . The Brahmas have very small combs , and this is a very important item in winter , as frosted combs are very annoying and prevent the hens from laying . Although they bave good appetites and eat heartily , yet they lay well and fatten readily when grown . As winter layers they are unsurpassed by any breed , and can be kept in confinement with very low fences . The breed is one that combines mor...

THE ORCHARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

THE ORCHARD . Advice to Peach Growers . The peach tree bears in three years , and is easily managed . But lt is a tree that needs attention like a crop of corn . Most causes of failure , as shown at a convention of peach growers , are preventable , and no fruit responds so kindly to good treatment . But on the other hand no fruit Is so easily ruined by bad or careless management . To begin aright the land should not be too rich . Over-rich soil will Induce enormous succulent growth , full of crude sap up to the time of severe freezing , and a hard winter following will kill back the branches and brown the bark as if a fire bad run through the orchard . Better have the land rather poor , and bring up to proper standard bv the proper amount of well rotted manure or commercial fertilizers . Growth can be stimulated , but cannot be held back . Fertilize , therefore , so as to meet the demands of each year according to the growth and fruitage , the quantity being increased as the tree gr...

Milk Fever and its Cause . Milk fever is said to be caused by the sealing up of the uterine vessels , after separation of tho fcetus , with blood clots , ond their subsequent absorption and Interference with circulation , but this view is not sustained by experience and post mortem examination . It sometimes occurs before calving , and hence before blood clots have been formed , and is very uncommon in connection with first or second calvings in aged animals , and in those that have been out of health or had difficult labors . The conditions under which milk fever exists , or is caused , are various . The disease is seldom observed in the cow before the age of five years . It is more frequently found to attack animals in a plethoric condition . It more frequently affects the pure breeds than others , and is also more fatal with them . It seldom occurs subsequent to three days before calving , but always occurs , as a rule , after calving , and previous attacks favor its recurrence ....

MISCELLANEOUS [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 August 1884

MISCELLANEOUS Advantage of a Loose Soil . That a loose soil ls protection against ordinary drought has been repeatedly proven . Being a non-conductor of heal it acts as a mulch and keeps the soil damp and the roots cool ; whereas , the hard , unplowed loud is a good conductor and affords no resistance to the access of the injurious heat of the sun . Dew in abundance is very valuable to young plants , and its formation is facilitated by stirring the soil . If any farmer will observe in the morning in his flower or kitchen garden , he will see that dew is often abundantly formed upon the loosely cultivated beds , while it is totally absent in the hard walks , and this is just what happens on a much larger scale in the fields . Moreover , when the formation of dew is so great as to be everywhere , that upon the loose soil is absorbed and carried to the roots of the plants , while that upon the hard is quickly evaporated and lost . —Planter s Journal . A Cheap Ice Box . Make or buy two ...

HALLSHAIR RENEWER . The great popularity of this preparation , after its many years of test , should be an assurance , even to the most skeptical , that it is really meritorious . Those who have used HALL S HAIR KENEWEK know that it does all that is claimed . It causes new growth of hair on bald heads—provided the hair follicles are not dead , which is seldom the case ; restores natural color to gray or faded hair ; preserves the scalp healthful and clear of dandruff ; prevents the hair falling off or changing color ; keeps it soft , pliant , lustrous , and causes it to grow long and thick . HALL S HAIR RENEWER produces its effects by the healthful intiuence oi its vegetable ingredients , which invigorate and rejuvenate . It is not a dye , and is a delightful article for toilet use .

The Art of Fiction . A lecture recently delivered in London takes the ground that Action is an art , and can only be taught to persons who have the gift for lt . Holland savs Nature Is the master of talent , genius the master of nature , and Henry Ward Beeeher expresses the whole matter in these few words : Unless a man can link his written thoughts with the everlasting wants of men , so that they shall draw from them as from wells , there is no more immortality to tho thoughts and feelings of the soul than to the muscles and the bones . The mass of authors are like sheep , one leads and many follow . There seems to be at present a decided mania for killing off the heroine in the last chapter . Physicians recommend travel and change of scene when they can do no more for tho patient , and when a writer gets his heroine into a situation from which it is difficult to rescue her easily and gracefully , the inevitable result is , she sleeps the sleep that knows no waking . It is not easy...
