DIGESTIVE APTITUDE OF THE HORSE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

DIGESTIVE APTITUDE OF THE HORSE An European correspondent of the FARMERS REVIEW says : At the experimental farm of Hohenheim , M . Wolff has been occupied testing the digestive aptitude of the horse , during rest and work . The animal selected received daily thirteen pounds of oats , eleven of meadow hay , three of wheaten straw , and one-quarter of an ounce of salt , and the experiment lasted over five periods of fourteen consecutive days each . The food was analysed , as also the droppings of the animal , with accuracy . It results , that no variation in muscular exertion , either favored or checked the work of digestion . But the wants vary and augment with that increased digestion ; the weight of the body reveals contradictions in respect to drink , being sometimes greater or less , and the opposite following the quantity of water taken , but which quantity is ever larger in proportion to increased exertion . A diet of hay and beans gave similar results to the foregoing , reveal...

SWINE IN THE SOUTH [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

SWINE IN THE SOUTH A correspondent of the Rural Sun says : By the use of clover fields we can , I think produce pork as profitably as any other ment . But an eye to the time of the farrowing of hogs designed for slaughter , must he had ; never , under any circum stances , carrying them over more than one Winter . And let no one be deceived—there will always be a demand for pork as long as bacon , hams and sides , too , are used on our tables . And then , too , lard enters into , in some form , nearly every dish that is placed on the dainty table ot the epicure . And further , the fact of our trade settling toward Europe , and the greatly increased demand for the hog in some shape or other , settles the question in my mind that we are to have in the future a rapidl y growing demand for pork , bacon and lard . But Tennessee is in a bad plight to realize large profits from the making of pork , for as pork continued to go down the farmers have continued to kill out their breeding sows u...

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

VETERINARY QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY : REMOVAL OF THE PLACENTA IN CATTLE . —W . 8 . M , Bendersville , Pa , asks : Will you please inform me through your valuable paper as to what shall be done in the case of a cow retaining her afterbirth for several days after calving . Should it be removed , and if so , is the operation likely to be attended with danger ? ANSWER : The serious complications which are liable to arise from neglect in not removing the placenta from cattle within at least two or three days after parturition has taken place , is of more importance to the health of the animal , as well as the pecuniary gain of the owner , than is generally understood by the majority of stock raisers . Suffice it to say , that the placenta , when not promptly removed , soon runs into a state of decomposition , and the diseased secretions are absorbed and carried into the general circu lation , poisoning the blood , and through it every tissue of the body . This is bad enough without me...

HINTS FOR OUR FAIRS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

HINTS FOR OUR FAIRS At this time of year executive boards are revising their premium lists , and making plans for holding fairs next Autumn . The ways for measuring the success of a fair are various . Some judge a fair by the size of the crowd in attendance , and the money taken in at the gates . These are certainly encouraging symptoms which are not to he entirely ignored , yet the success of a fair depends upon furnishing the ereatest amount and variety of useful information to those who arc in attendance . Some harmless amusements help to draw large numbers . It will usually prove a good investment for an association to send , once in a while , a wide-awake man , and pay his expenses , to visit some fair , take notes , and report at the annual meeting . Por showing fruits and vegetables , a hall with a skylight is the best . For educating visitors and for convenience of the judges , objects belonging to the same class should be placed near each other . In too many cases , the big...

THE FIRST PRAYER IN CONGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

THE FIRST PRAYER IN CONGRESS The first prayer uttered in Congress was printed in Thatcher s Military Journal for December , 1777 . It was made by the Rev . Jacob Duche , who is described as a man of great eloquence . The prayer is certainly very earnest and forcible , and we think will be read with more than ordinary interest at this time , so near the recurrence of the anniversary of the birth day of the first president of the Republic . Hence we give it in full : 0 Lord , our Heavenly Father , high and mighty King of Kings and Lord of Lords , who dost from Thy throne behold all the dwellers of the earth , and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over pll the Kingdoms , Empires , and Governments , look down in mercy , we beseech Thee , on these American States , who have fled to Thee from the rod of the oppressor , and thrown themselves on Thy gracious protection , desiring to be henceforth dependent only on Thee . To Thee they have appealed for the righteousness of their c...

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

THE STINGING TREE There is a plant growing among the luxuriant scrubs of Queensland which is as deadly in its effect as fire . The Scientific American describes these plants and their effects as follows : They are found growing from two and three inches high to ten and fifteen feet ; in the old ones the stem is whitish , and red berries usunlly grow on the top . It emits a peculiar , disagreeable smell , but is best known by its leaf , having a point on the top , and is jagged all round the edge , like the nettle . All the leaves are large , some larger than a saucer . Sometimes , says a traveler , while shooting turkeys in the scrubs , I have entirely forgotten the stinging tree , till warned of its close proximity by its smell , and I have then found myself in a forest of them . I was only once stung , and that very lightly . Its effects are curious . It leaves no mark , but the pain is maddening , and for months tho part when touched is tender in rainy weather , or when it gets w...

INSURANCE ITEMS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 26 February 1880

INSURANCE ITEMS INSURANCE PREMIUMS . —It is one thing to agree to pay premiums promptly on a fixed day , and another thing to pay . We have heard of quite a number of cases lately where parties have asked insurance companies to pay them for losses , when it turned out that they had not kept tlieir agreement wilh the companies , and had not paid the premium at the lime tlieir notes for premiums had become due . Look at your policies now , and see how you stand in this regard . It is better to be a litUe ahead of the time than even one day behind . If parties do not pay tlieir premiums on or before the actual day when notes become due , they have no legal nor even a moral right to ask the insurance companies to pay them . JEALOUSY AS A CAUSE OF INCENDIARISM . — Not long ago the handsome residence of Joseph Baillie , in the village of Lancaster , Grant County , Wis ., was set on fire by an incendiary and burned to the ground , together with its contents , involving a loss of $ 5 , 000 ...
