THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

THE SHEAF THE REVIEW this week presents an array of valuable articles from its special correspondents . Mr . Dodge discusses the question of the growth of cereals in the west in an exhaustive manner . Prof . Beal gives valuable hints about the management of the apple orchard . On page 158 we begin the publication of Prof . Riley s address at the New York meeting for organizing a National Agricultural Society . It has never been in print before . It was held for the regular report of the convention , but as it does not seem likely that the report will appear for some time , the Professor gives it to the REVIEW . At this time , when Congress is engaged in discussing the management of the Department of . Agriculture , Mr . Riley s paper has great interest . THE Illinois State Board of Agriculture has decided to hold another Fat Stock Show at the exposition building in this city , beginning the 15 th of November next . The premium list will be as liberal as last year , we are told . For...

METHOD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

METHOD . There is nothing more essential to success in life than method . The young man who starts in life without an aim , is like a ship without a helm , and likely to strand upon the first rock in his path . Method in farming is all important . There is scarcely a branch of agriculture if ; not pursued methodically but would prove a failure , and much of the ill success of farming is attributable to that cause . The successful farmer must have in hismindseye the crops that he is going to raise , and the method he is going to use to produce the same , and also the kinds of stock he is going to raise , and the means he will take to accomplish his object , and the same through all the countless industries connected with the life of a farmer . Without mental as well as physical application to all the details of labor on the farm his efforts are likely to end in failure , and this doubtless applies to every other branch of business . But with well directed method , accompanied with in...

AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

AGRICULTURAL CEREALS OF THE WEST . The Cereals oi America , and the fame thereof are in the mouths of millions of French and British people , yet few of them are aware that their supplies all come from the central basin of the continent and the valleys of the Pacific coast—the wheat from a dozen States , the corn from seven of the thirty-eight States of thc Nation . They credit some millions of bushels to British America , innocent of the fact that the Canadian label has only been gained by a passage through Dominion territory . Not a few of our countrymen , who know that grain is grown in every State and Territory , are unconscious of the truth that every State upon the coast , with two or three exceptions , depends in part upon the interior States for both bread and meat . As population , in its movement westward , presses upon production , the surplus-producing area recedes , and now we find a large portion of the grain that seeks an Eastern or a foreign market , moving forward a...

VALUE OF INDIAN CORN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

VALUE OF INDIAN CORN Within the past few years more than seventy analyses of Indian corn have been made in this country , says Professor Caldwell , in the N . Y . Tribune . . . It is plainly shown that while different varieties ot common corn do not differ essentially from each other , tweet corn , is decidedly the richest in albuminoids and fat . If a bushel of sweet corn could be produced as cheaply as one of common corn , it would undoubtedly be profitable to farmers to turn their attention to raising it ; but sweet corn as ndw cultivated is usually the product of a rich garden soil ; with the same treatment that other corn usually receives it might grow poorer in quality , at least with respect to the albuminoids . White corn appears to be more variable than other kinds in composition , especially as to the albuminoids , and also to be the poorest of all kinds in this important constituent . Eastern and Western corns are practically alike in feeding value , notwithstanding that ...

JftHEN TO CUT GRASS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

JftHEN TO CUT GRASS The following table shows the composition of meadow grass cut at three different dates in the same field . The first cutting will represent pasture grass fed off in the green state by stock ; the second cutting is good ordinary hay ; the third cutting is an over-ripe hay , somewhat coarse and stemmy , but well harvested . The composition given in every case is that of a dry substance : — COMPOSITION OF HAT HARVESTED AT DIFFERENT DATES . Date of cut- Albuml- Fat . $ X le Flbre , A 8 h ting . nolds . hydrtes May 14 17 . 65 Tift 40 . 88 22 . 97 15 . 83 ~ June 9 11 . 16 2 . 74 48 . 27 34 . 88 7 . 95 June 26 8 . 46 2 . 71 43 . 34 38-15 7 . 84 Young grass is thus much richer in albuminoids , and contains a smaller proportion of indigestible fiber than older grass and is consequently more nourishing . The same comparison may be made between young clover and that which is allowed to mature for hay . Hay should always be cut immediately full bloom is reached ; after thisp...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

HORTICULTURAL HOW SHALL I TREAT MY APPLE OR CHARD ? Nearly as often as the months roll around comes this inquiry in some form or other . The question is asked in reference to young orchards , and in reference to old orchards ; those on prairie soil , those on clay timbered land , or sandy land , and black loam . A physician , when called on to prescribe remedies , wants to see the patient , and study all his symptoms before deciding what to do . There is fully as much chance for skill , broad , _ eep judgment , or good sound common sense in properly managing an apple orchard as there is in recommending remedies for sick people . It is quite risky for any one who does not know all the circumstances , to prescribe for an apple orchard . The best men may make mistakes , even when they have all the facts before them . P . L . O ., Blooming Prairie , Minnesota , is the last one to make inquiries as to how to treat apple trees five years old and over . They have been thoroughly cultivated...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL PARASITES OF THE PLUM CURCULIO . BY PROP . C . V . RILEY . A correspondent in a recent letter states that at a certain Horticultural meeting one gentleman made the assertion that the writer had discovered a parasite of the Plum Curculio which would clear out that pest from an orchard in the course of three years . This rather hopeful assertion was no doubt based on the fact that some nine years ago , namely , in the third- report on the Insects of Missouri , I described and figured two parasites of that insect , which had before been supposed not to have any . As one of these ( that which is most common and wide-spread ) may easily be transmitted from one place to another , and introduced to orchards where it is not known to occur , I will give a brief account of it . About twenty years ago , in his address on the Plum Curculio , Dr . Fitch gave an account of an Ichneumonparasite , which he named Sigalphus curculionii , and which he believed to be parasitic on the Curc...

M 0 XEY AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

M 0 XEY AND COMMERCE I FINANCE . TUESDAY EVBMIKO . March 2 d , 1880 . The money market remains in much the same position as last week . There is a good demand tor loans from operators in grains and provisions on change , and a fair inquiry from miscellaneous branches of business , but bankers say the supply ot funds is largely in excess of the applications from commercial bonowers , and rates ot discount are steady at 6 @ 8 per cent , for choice names and paper secured by receipts of grain and provisions in store . Bank notes and Greenbacks are said to be very scarce in the Eastern cities , and Western bankers who have fluids in New York have been notified that orders for money to be sent here by express must be filled with gold . As it costs $ 1 . 25 per $ 1 , 000 more to bring gold than currency , the price of bankers exchange on New York fell to 80 < g > $ 1 . 00 discount per $ 1 , 000 , and shippers bills to $ 1 . 50 . Railroad freights to New York have bee...

NEWS ITEMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

NEWS ITEMS . PABNELL AND DILLON are presenting the claims of the Irish sufferers to tbe good people in Iowa , who are responding liberally to the appeals made . IT is reported that James C Flood , the bonanza king , has disposed of all his mining interests to John W . Mackay . The price is not known , but a check for $ 5 , 000 , 000 is said to nave been a part of the consideration . IT is estimated that the loss of stock on the Winter ranges in Idaho and eastern Oregon by reason of the late severe weather , reaches nearly 20 , 000 head . A SNOW-SLIDE near Salt Lake , on Friday , buried six men and several teams . Four or the men were rescued alive . FIVE barges , containing 260 , 000 bushels of corn , left St . Louis this week for New Orleans , where the cargo will be transferred to vessels bound for Europe . The freight to the sea will amount lo . about $ 37 , 000 . If shipped by rail to New York at the present tariff it would be about $ 70 , 000 . FOBTY negroes with their families...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 6 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 6 IN-BREEDING AND CROSS-BREDING . In-breeding has been defined as breeding together animals closely related ; In-and-in-breeding is breeding such animals together for successive generations . There is some difference of usage in regard to these words . Some breeders do not regard them as applicable unless the animals are very closely related , and a few erroneously make an important distinction between these and close-breeding and line-breed-ing . The latter word may be used with strict propriety when all the ancestors belong to one family , whether or no any of them were very closely related . The closest possible breeding is that of full brother with sister . That of half-brother with sister or parent with offspring is , theoretically , only half so close . There has been much discussion and radical differences of opinion . as to the effects of in-breeding . The great mass of stock-breeders believe the practice a bad one , at best an unsafe one . This...

THE HOLSTEINS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880

THE HOLSTEINS A correspondent of the Journal of AgricuUwe writes the following , as his claims for this breed of cattle now being introduced so largely into the dairy regions of the West : 1 . They are the most hardy . Coming from a cold climate , they stand our Northern Winters better than any other pure breed , not even excepting the judge s American breed , the scrub . 2 . They are the most hearty feeders , and will turn to a greater profit the rough feed . The calves take to drink and eating without coercion or moral suasion . It would be a rare case , not one in fifty , where fasting one meal , would not drink the second . They are rapid growers , becaus . e they are hearty feeders . 3 . They are not grain pampered , and will give better returns for good hay and grass . For this reason they are more vigorous as breeders . They are strongest , and best defined of breeds , hence , the best for grading purposes . They will transmit their characteristics with certainty on any breed...
