Early Maturity of Farm Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 10 June 1880

Early Maturity of Farm Stock. By the couiuioa admission of all eompetant to form opinions on tho matter (says an English writer) remunerative meat production cannot be insured at tbe present day without early maturity and rapid" fattening. Young pigs, fed from birth rapidly and sent to the pork shops at about six weeks old, may be made to pay, but tbe production of bacon can only be accomplished at a loss. Lambs taught to nibble oil cake as soou as they will eat anything, and kept steadily moving Bo that they fatten as they grow, may at about ten months old be brought to heavier weights of carcass than our fathers used to bring their sheep to after keeping them three or lour years. And oattle-feediag, to be rendered remunerative, must be conducted precisely in the same way. The caif must never be stinted of food, but have plenty of milk at first, and then milk and meal wilh little oil cake. As he grows bigger and devours more of the natural food of the farm, whether it be hay and ro...

Desolation of Palestine. The Rev. W. J. Starcey writes to the j Lor.don Time* of the deploiable oondiI tion of the Holy Laud, which he has i recently visited. He cays: " Nothing can well exceed the deso- | lateness of much of it. Treeless it is for twenty or thirty miles together, forests which did exist thirty years ago (c. g., ou Mount Carmel and Mount Tabor) fast disappearing, rich plains of the finest garden soil asking to be cultivated, at best but scratched up a few inches deep in patches, with no hedges or boundaries; mountain terraces, naturally or artificially formed, ready to be planted with vines, as the German colony are doing at the foot of Mount Carmel; the villages nothing but mud huts, dusit, dirt and squalor; the inhabitants with scarce clothing enough for decency, their houses—ovens; large tracs without a horse or cow, sheep or dog; no pretense at roads, except from Jaffa to Jerusalem, and this like a cart road over a plowed field, the rest, at best, like sheep-wal...
