VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
VETERINARY Conducted by A . J . Murray , Veterinary Surgeon , 286 Btaubim St ., Detroit , Mich ., ( Late Professor in Boyal Agricultural College , Cirencester , England . ) unsoundness of Horses . The fetlock Joint is sometimes contused , from the horse cutting , as it is termed . This kind of cutting is different from that which is termed the speedy-cut . In , speedy-cut the horse only cuts when he Is going fast and the part , contused is the inside of the shank , the other injury is inflicted when the horse is going slowly , and depends generally on defective conformation of the horse . A horse may become suddenly lame from striking himself in either of the • ways described , and many fast and valuable horses are the subjects of this abnormal action ; which may be greatly modified by care ln shoeing and in driving . I have frequently known horses to interfere and overreach as well when they were in poor condition , and which were quite free from any thing of the kind when iu good ...

~ HORTICOLTBRAL , Seasonable Hints . The weather has been very changeable lately and operations in the orchard and garden has been suspended until a favorable season presents Itself . In the mean time a great deal may be done toward forwarding tbe Spring work . Manure may be collected , old stumps , dead leaves , and rubbish of every kind calculated to make covers for mice etc , should be removed . A great deal of the damage done by mice might be prevented if these pests were kept from breeding in the orchard in decayed stumps , piles of riibbish , etc . Cats and terriers are very effective aids In banishing rabbits and mice They shculd be about every farm-house , and should have free access to the orchard and garden . The eggs and cocoons of hurtful Insects should be hunted up and destroyed . Iri this case a stitch in time saves nine .

Wool Growers andWool Manufacturers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
Wool Growers andWool Manufacturers . That there has been and still Is a very undesirable state of feeling and much misunderstanding between wool growers and wool buyers is very evident to any one familiar with the proceedings of meetings of those connected with either interest . That there has been some reason for dissatisfaction by either party we think is also evident . Some wool growers have attempted to defraud the buyers—have used an unnecessarily large amount of twine in doing up fleeces , have put up wool in bad condition , and have even put foreign matter into the fleeces . On the other hand , buyers have often been at fault , in falling to make proper discrimination in favor of clean and well put-up wool , and in some of the rules they have adopted . vThe rule requiring a uniform deduction on all unwashed wools , and on all rams fleeces , etc ., we believe to be clearly unjast . If one fleece of unwashed wool should have a deduction of one-third , another should have twice ...
Warner Sulky Revolving Bake , [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
Warner Sulky Revolving Bake , This rake , which attracted such general attention last year , has proved a decided success , and has received , at the hands of purchasers , the highest endorsement . Large numbers were sold last year in the Western and Eastern States , and no doubt the demand this year will be largely increased . It is claimed that this rake possesses decided advantages over the wire-tooth rake ; that it gathers the hay free from dust and sand , so injurious to stock ; that it makes better winrows ; is more easily handled ; can be more easily nnl cheaply repaired in case of breakage ; and finally , that it gives the farmer a sulky and rake combined at less price than can be bought any first-class wire-tooth rake . The reputation of the manufacturers insures that the rake is well made and of good material ; and they are warranted to do good work wherever the common revolving rake can be used to advantage . Messrs . BLYMYEB , FEARING &amp; Co ., successors to A ...
State Agricultural Fairs . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
State Agricultural Fairs . The Chicago Republican takes the position that when the place of holding the Illinois State Fair is permanently located at any one point , it will cease to benefit the State generally . and It will object to the use of the accumulated funds ofthe Society in the interest of any single locality . It does not know of a single Stftte Agricultural Society that is doing enough to pay for tbe amount It costs the people to sustain the Society and its exhibitions . The good already accomplished is recognized , but , the Republican believes , the time has come when the various Industries , which sustain the ex hlbitlons of the State Society , have reached a point when they can regulate their affairs in tbeir own way . The example of the Horticulturists In holding separate exhibitions and meetings for discussion ls mentioned , and the opinion is expressed that a separate exhibition would ba as beneficial to the Wool Growers ; while an exclusive biennial Cattle Fair w...
Morality of Hop Raising , [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
Morality of Hop Raising , As I hear a great deal of talk about the cultivation of the hop , I want to know what hops are . used for , and whether a consistent temperance man can raise them for market without being inconsistent , or bringing a stlgnfk upon his profession as a temperance man t I have thought of going into the business , but do not want to encourage intemperance . This you may think is a moral question , bnt I hope your paper is open to discussion of moral questions ; for by so doing , the weak can have the advantage of the strong . I have been taking your valuable paper for two years , and find it all one could ask for as a good agricultural paper . A SUBSCRIBER InoeU , Wit . . • —We Cannot decide questions of morality for others . Each of our readers must decide for himself on the morality of hopraising . There can , however , be no qries tion as to the purpose for which they are mainly used . A very large proportion of all tbe hops grown in this country is used in t...
Our Letter from Washington . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 25 April 1868
Our Letter from Washington . The Northern Produce Company of this city received recently from the North a quantity of maple sugar and sirup , which tbey , advertised for sale . The demand was great for the same among the large number who hail from colder regions . But some , whose only ideas of sugar and sirup were associated with Southern plantations and sugar refineries , astonished the clerks ofthe store by asking what maple sugar was ; and they were as surprised to learn that sugar was ever made from the sap of trees as the city cockney once was to learn that butter and cheese were not milked from the cows teats . Western people sometimes notice Virginia and Maryland lands advertised for sale at mefely nominal prices ,, and many of them inquire ln their own minds as to the desirability of those lands for agricultural purposes . I may say , in reference to this matter , upon information from those conversant therewith , that those owning farms in a high state of cultivation In th...
