THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

THE SHEAF IN a late number of the FARMERS REVIEW we gave illustrations of the new invention known as the Prosser car for the transportation of grain . That this new method may be brought to such perfection as to compel its general adoption should be the earnest desire of all the agriculturists in the great West . If something does not speedily turn up by which the railroad lines to the seaboard can be controlled , their grip on the throats and pockets of our home producers and foreign consumers will tighten more and more . They have succeeded so far in choking-off the Reagan bill , although the hope is held out to us of a substitute to be reported to the House which will meet some of the requirements of the situation . ACCORDING to the French code the keeper of several bee-hives , ostensibly engaged in the commercial production of honey , is bound to keep the hives one hundred and ten yards distant from his neighbor s property , to lessen the danger to persons and the injury to frui...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

AGRICULTURAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS . RUSSIAN WHEAT . —Geo . D . Glasscock asks : Where can I obtain seed of White Russian Wheat , and what is the price ? When shall I sow and how much per acre ! This wheat is for sale by W . E . Stitt , Chicago . It is a prolific Spring variety , and should be sown at the usual time and same quantity as other varieties of Spring wheat . THE PRUNE . —Joseph Blanchard , Kansas , asks . Please tell me the native country of the prune . Can it he propagated successfully in any part of the United States . If so how can it be obtained ? The prune is simply a dried plum . There are many species , four of which are natives of this country—the P . Chiekasa , Mx ., Chickasaw plum , native West of the Mississippi , P . Americana , Marshall , the wild yellow or red plum , found along the banks of nearly all the streams of this country , P . Maritima , peculiar to sandy coasts of the South Atlantic States , P . Qlandulosa , found in Texas . There are several hund...

H ORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

H ORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN . —NO . 9 . PARSNIPS . The parsnip is not one of the vegetables one would like to be confined to for very long at a time , but by way of variety it comes in very acceptably during the Winter months . The best variety I have ever grown is the Hollow Crown . This kind is rich , and sweet , and does not get to be tough and stringy like some other varieties . To grow parsnips well—and much ot the good quality of them depends on how they are grown—the soil should be made mellow to a considerable depth , and needs to be liberally manured . There is always more or less uncertainly about the germination of parsnip seeds . It is a good plan to sow them quite thickly . If more come up than are needed , the surplus can be pulled up and thrown away . In November I dig my parsnips , and pack them away in a box in the cellar . I do not put earth among them , for the cook says they are better if they wilt a little . She thinks they are sweeter , and less inclined to be...

THE CUCUMBER AND SQUASH BUGS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

THE CUCUMBER AND SQUASH BUGS A correspondent of the FARMERS REVIEW says : Take a heaping tablespoonful of saltpeter , pulverize , and put into a pail ot water . Stir until all dissolved , and at night , when the bugs are all in the ground at the roots of the plants , take a pint cup of the solution and pour it full upon the roots , and . it will kill every bug that it reaches . If all are not killed the first time , put it on again . The saltpeter is an excellent fertilizer , and will pay ten times its cost in the rapid growth of the vines . Having thoroughly tried , he can vouch for its success .

MINNESOTA TALK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

MINNESOTA TALK At the late meeting of the ( Minnesota Horticultural Society , Mr . R . J . Mendenhall read a paper on Plant Lice , and gave as some of the best remedies : Drenching the diseased roots with hot water and mulching with unleached wood ashes , then syringing with weak carbolic acid , or whale oil and soap suds . The tea of tomato plants and Persian insect powder was good in some cases . An hour was spent in topics relating to floriculture , and a paper on Blight , Its Nature , Cause and Prevention , was read by E . B . Jordon , who has found the best remedy in thc using of lime and sulphur to paint the trees about the 1 st of June . A long series of resolutions were passed warning the people against the purchase of untried varieties of fruits and trees at high prices by the traveling representatives of swindling Eastern nurseries , calling upon all dealers in the State to give their agents undoubted evidence of their connection with wellknown nurseries , and asking that ...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

THE APIARY STARVING BEES - WHAT IS BEST TO DO FOR THEM . Would you , or some of your subscrib . ers , let me know in your next paper what is best to feed to my bees , and how to feed them ? I have no honey nor honey-comb , unless I buy some . I only have two colonies left , and fear they will run short before they can get about to gather honey . I have the patent double hive , with boxes on top of section-frames . I am not much acquainted with the manner of raising bees . I bought one colony last Spring , from which I raised two colonies , one of which I put in an old hive . The hive was not used the year before . I cleaned it out very clean , and in the Fall I found the bees getting less every week , and on examing the hive I found there were only a few handful of bees left ; the rest was all filled up with moths and spider webs . Now could I use the same hive again this year , or would it be better to destroy it ? I keep my bees out doors where I had them in Summer , and would lik...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

THE POULTRY YARD A SUBSCRIBER desires to know where he can obtain pure bred Rouen ducks . Whoever has them should advertise in the REVIEW . Poultry breeders generally will find it to their advantage to advertise in the REVIEW , as through it they reach a class of people who buy to keep for the improvement of their own flocks instead of breeding for sale . ____________ A WRITER in the Country Gentleman says that of everything he has tried for the cure of roup in fowls , the best is to take pulverized copperas and put a teaspoonful in three quarts of water and give it to them to drink . Should they not drink much in a day or two , mix it into corn meal and feed to them . PLYMOUTH ROCKS AND BROWN LEG HORNS . HEN ROOSTS . It is a mistake to place the poles at different heights , rising from the front , because all will strive to get on tlie highest one , and the weaker ones are crowded off and frequently fall to the ground , only to repeat the process ; or , if injured , remain on the g...

RAISIN GRAPES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

RAISIN GRAPES For the manufacture of raisins the Muscat of Alexandria , Muscatel Gordo Blanco and Seedless Sultana , are the varieties most highly prized in this vicinity , and but few of the many other varieties will be sent here this year . Of the Seedless Sultana , less is known than of the Muscat and Muscatel . But what is known is greatly in their favor , as an early and prolific bearer , and being free from seeds will always command a ready sale at good prices . Mr . Blowers , the well known raisin manufacturer , states in a letter of re cent date that his three year old Seedless Sultana vines yielded from 35 to 50 pounds each , many clusters weighing over four pounds each . The average was 12 % pounds of cured raisins per vine , which brought at wholesale 12 > £ cents per pound , $ 1 . 50 per vine , over $ 1 , 000 per acre , or a net profit over picking , curing and packing of $ 680 . These results may be obtained most any where in this vicinity by good cultivation...

After ten days of fine weather , a severe snow and rain storm , followed by a hard freeze , extending more or less over the Northwest , are the conditions which close our crop week . Reports from Winter wheat areas are not full enough to determine the actual damage to tlie crop . But it requires no prophet to predict injury to the wheat from so sudden and severe a change as we have just experienced . This damage is more apparent at present in the northern and central portions of Illinois , where the crop has been sown this season quite largely aa an experiment In I...

MONET AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

MONET AND COMMERCE FINANCE , TUESDAY EVENING . Feb . 24 th . 1880 . The demand for money for carrying grain and provisions is a little more active , but it is not equal to the supply seeking such loans , and the market remains easy at 6 @ 8 per cent , for paper secured by first-class business names , and receipts for grain , seeds , and provisions in store in city warehouses . Loans on real estate are freely offered at 6 @ 8 per cent . The speculative feeling in stocks noted last week has shown increased activity during the one just closing , but it has not had any marked effect on other branches of business . It is , however , the general opinion in business circles that a continued speculation in stock will sooner or later extend to nearly ail other articles .

SHEEP vs . COWS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

SHEEP vs . COWS . Five coarse wooled sheep will produce lambs at the rate of one and one-halt * to the sheep , but quite often they will double their number . Medium wooled sheep may safely be relied upon to . increase their numbers one and one-half , while fine wooled sheep will return a lamb for a sheep . The value of the lambs depends upon their quality , when kept for breeding ; or on their earllness and condition , when fitted for market . The price of lambs for these various breeds will range from three dollars upwards . Wool was worth the past season from 35 to 45 cents per pound Six pounds of wool per head are not an extra average for a well kept flock of sheep . They may be made to average more than that by extra care . A flock of combing wool sheep , with the same care and feeding which a good dairyman would give his cows , will average , per sheep , at least ten dollars . This would afford an income of $ 50 on a flock of five in the place of one cow . The proportion of in...
