The uses ofthe Breeds . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
The uses ofthe Breeds . Each breed of fowls has its characteristics , and hence special duties are assigned them . The Leghorns , Hamburgs , Houdans , Polish and Black Spanish are intended as layers only . They are not sitters , and are not expected to raise broods . The Brahmas , Cochins , Plymouth Rooks and Wyandottes are esteemed not only as layerjs , but must also produce large carcasses and fatten readily . Other breeds are considered as pets , the Bantams for instance , while the Polish are regarded as the most ornamental . Then again , there are merits and defects in all breeds . The Brahmas are well feathered , hardy and possess small combs that do not freeze ; are adapted to cold climates , but if not properly managed soon become too fat and do not lay . The Plymouth Rooks arc also hardy and well feathered , but are not as easily kept in confinement as are the Asiatics . The Leghorns and Hamburgs are good layers , but are small in size and easily fly over a high fence . The...
APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
APIARY . Honey Gathered by Bees . Mr . G . M . Doolittie , well known for his practical attainments in bee matters , in relation to the amount of honey a bee will gather during its natural life , generally less than the season of bloom , says , with a continuous and uninterrupted honey-flow within two miles of the hive , during the time which a bee lives , thinks that a bee might easily gather one ounce of nectar , which would take only 1 , 600 bees to gather 100 pounds . Of this amount it would take at least twenty-five pounds to supply the wants of the colony during the time the bee was living , and unless the nectar was thicker than we get it here , it would take three pounds of this nectar to make one pound of honey . So then we should have twentyfive pounds of honey as the product of 1 , 600 bees during their life , with an uninterrupted flow of nectar . While this might be possible , yet there are two things which make it improbable , the first being , as already stated , that...

MISCELLANEOUS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
MISCELLANEOUS . The Mission of Birds . The mission of birds is twofold ; their natural mission and that in connection with the labors of the farmer and horticulturist . With these their chief value consists in the insects they destroy , especially during the nesting season . Their natural mission , is to hold a balance in nature , to prevent the too wide increase of insect life . Again , as between the farmer and the horticulturist , there is an antagonism . Many birds of great value to the farmer and gardener , robins for instance , are , during the fruit season , inimical to the pomologist . Yet how many of either class know friends from enemies in this respect . The farmer has a hereditary grudge against the crow , because it occasionally pulls some corn at planting time . The crow is one of the farmers best friends , if he did but know it , since all small animal life are its natural prey . The pulling of com may be prevented by easy and well known means . To give some idea of w...
Ninety-Day Seed Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Ninety-Day Seed Corn . MR . EDITOR — Dear Sir : I have a quantity of a superior quality of extra large field corn which has lately been originated , and which will mature in ninety days , thus filling a want long felt . Ears from twelve or fovrteen inches long , grains unusually large , cob slender , 130 bushels of shelled corn of this variety has been raised per acre . As I am extremely anxious to know what this corn will do in other climates before advertising it for sale , I will send a large sample package to any farmer who will give it a fair trial and proper attention and report his success with it , and ¦ who will inclose 10 cents in silver to pay postage , packing , etc ., thereon . In order to induce farmers to take umistially good care of this corn , so that I may have good reports to advertise next season , I will give $ 25 in gold as a premium to the one who raises the best ear and sends the best report , and $ 10 for second best . Address , New Carlisle , 0 . F . E . FR...

Getting wives Through the Economy Club . CHICAGO . III . EDITOR FABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN : An inquiry from a western subscriber asks whether the Economy Club can furnish the bachelors ont that way good wives at club prices . Well knowing the needs . of our western friends , and fearinir many such inquiries , permit us to make our answer publicly through your columns : We have no doubt of our ability to furnish anything our members may need , but we want it distinctly understood that when it comes to furnishing wives , club prices may surprise them .

Crops in Tennessee . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Crops in Tennessee . BOWMAN , TENN ., Dec . 20 , 1885 . Wheat is very low here , although , there was not more than naif a crop in this section . Other grains are also low . Wheat is 90 cents , rye 45 cents , corn 35 cents , and potatoes 50 cents per bushel . Can you give the reason of the low price of grain ? L J . ANSWER : Wheat is low all over the country . If you look at our market reports of last week , you will find that winter wheat ranges from 78 to 96 cents in New York . The absence of export [ demand Is the cause of the low price of wheat . Other crops have been generally large throughout the country , and hence the low price of coarse grains also .
Hold on to Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Hold on to Wheat . Some weeks ago we took occasion to warn farmers under a fair certainty that all the wheat in the country would be wanted , at , fair prices , before the new crop would be moved . It now begins to look as though wheat would be . the best agricultural crop to hold for an advance , at the opening of navigation . We also had occasion a short time since to score the Minneapolis millers for their course in cornering the wheat market . It was an aggression that bodes little good to the producers , in the future , if those who have gotten rich in buying wheat low and selling flour high , may fling their vast earnings into a pool to force prices at their dictation . They sold short , covered later at a handsome profit ; again they sold short to a smaller extent on the upturn of the market ; again bought in , and the statement is now made that they intend to hold , for this season . Not to exceed twenty-five per cent of the wheat of the northwest remains in the hands of the...
« Homesteaders Have Bights . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
« Homesteaders Have Bights . It is thought that Gen . Sparks , the Land Commissioner , has not only waked up the wrong passenger , but agreat many of them . His friends say he only started out to break up the dummy entries of public lands . But by refusing to act on all entries , he injures a great many innocent persons . Men who are entitled to their patents must wait months and are thus treated as if they were guilty of some misdemeanor . The delay is not the only annoyance . You have some trade in view , or some improvement for which you were to give security on your land ; these business transactions are blocked . This is , not all . Your title is actually brought in question to the average mind , and the entire tract of land in the region is depreciated in value by this uncalled for official act . Another and a more general and serious cause of complaint is this : The Commissioner has ruled that a homesteader cannot enter a preemption claim . It has been the practice for many y...
Moisture and Rainfall . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Moisture and Rainfall . At a late meeting of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society , which includes in the scope of its discussions the various scenery connected with horticulture , it was held , that the clearing of forests seemed to have a decided effect on pur springs and streams of water in time of drought , making them dry rip more quickly ; but the average rainfall is about the same now as formerly . The Indians were hunters , not corn growers to any large extent ; they would sometimes burn a small tract to give the squaws room to plant corn , but they did not clear much land . There seems a wide difference among writers as to the connection of drought with clearing of land , but all are agreed that the forests retain water and prevent springs from drying up . One of the best safeguards against drought was believed to be deep and thorough tillage .
Drunkenness in the Senate . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Drunkenness in the Senate . In a discussion of the rules of the United States Senate the other day , some interesting facts were brought to view . It seems there is and has been for several years , a rule forbidding the sale of liquor in the Senate restaurant . The committee , of which Senator . Frye , of Maine , is chairman , recommended the continuance of this regulation . Some few Senators were evidently restive under the restriction . The intimation was made that the rule was circumvented by ordering cold tea . Two or three Senators undertook to make the restriction unpopular by extending it to the committee rooms . It was insinuated that Senators were accustomed to keep demijohns in their rooms , and so use the ardent as freely as they chose , though of course there was no buying and selling , no standing treat in the saloon style . It is barely possible that this method may have proved too expen sive for even Senatorial purses . In the heat of the debate it charged was that so...
The Farmers' Alliance . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
The Farmers Alliance . The alliance of farmers from Nebraska and Dakota west , is growing in interest . The chief point at issue in Colorado is the monopoly of the millers , by which through combination they seek to cut down the price of wheat , in order to enhance their profit . Thus they retard the purposes of agriculture in the State ., and depreciate the value of farms . The proper measure to controvert this , if no better offers , is to organize throughout the State by means of the Grange and Farmers Alliance . Then work may be done understandingly , and means be taken to hold grain , until millers shall do the fair thing ,- or else capital may be subscribed to build mills , though joint stock co-operation . This will bring the millers to terms , and the rule will work as well in one State or locality , as another . But to carry out the plan fully , the Legislatures must be composed of the producing classes . So long as farmers , who hold the greatest voting power in the United...
