LIVESTOCK NOTES BIOHABDSON BBOS ., Davenport , recently sold a car load of pure blood , and high grade Jersey cows and heifers to E . S . Buffnm , Lineville , Iowa . MB . B . STBATTON S famous Short-Horn heifer Icicle—champion ot Birmingham in 1877 , and of Smlthfield in 1878—was recently slaughtered . Her quantity of meat and lightness of offal have been attested by the fact that her dead weight amounted to the unusually high proportion of 78 per cent , of the live weight scaled by her at Birmingham in December , 1879 . THE Northumberland , which arrived in the London docks on January 30 , from Melbourne , brought two very * first-class rams and eleven ewes , consigned to the Duke of Manchester , with which his Grace is desirous to found a flock at Kimbolton , The interest attached to this importation lies In the fact that they are the first sheep sent from Australia to England for breeding purposes .

VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
VETERINARY QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY : BBOOD MARES—THEIR MANAGEMENT DURING GESTATION . —J . B . D , Savanah , Iowa , writes to the FARMERS REVIEW as follows : He says , you will much oblige me and many more of your subscribers , by giving in your next issue , some advice as to the proper treatment of a Brood mare during the Winter season ; and especially at the time of foaling , also , the propriety of working mare when in foal . ANSWER : From the time that conception has taken place to within two months of the expected period of foaling the mare may be kept at moderate work , —not only without injury , but with decided advantage . Nothing conduces more to the well being of the mare , in keeping her in health than moderate work on the farm . Exercise induces vigor , and stimulates the different secretions and excretions of the body so nec e-sary for the health of the mother as well as the development of the foetus in utero . It is not considered prudent to turn the breeding mare o...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
THERE are two chief Agricultural Socielies in France—the Central and the National . The latter last year , assisted by the Minister of Agriculture , prepared a series of questious , addressed to the farmers at large , to be vol untarily and uiaturedly answered , and tending to ascertain the truth on thc present state ot the nation s husbandry and its kindred industries , during a period of twenty years , that is , rural France between 18 o 4 and 1880 , compared with rural France of 1874 and 1880 . The results are most interesting : the division of landed property keeps increasing , owing to the laws of succession , and large estates are becoming rarer ; properties of a mean extent , however , tend to develop : but the splitting up into very small lots is notaugmenting . The production of grain has increased : laying the soil in fallow has diminished , and wheat is replacing rye , thanks to the use of lime , better manured and deeper tilled soils . An augmentation in the breeding and...
THE CHICAGO RIVER NUISANCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
THE CHICAGO RIVER NUISANCE The immense open sewer ditch , which for several miles traverses the city of Chicago , is commonly called the Chicago river . Unlike most rivers , it does not flow with any degree of definiteness from some one point to another point . Like the sloth , it is in a perpetual state of suspense . Sometimes largely discharging its poisonous filth into the lake , to mingle with the water supply of the great city it pollutes , and occasionally taking a turn in the other direction , and givingto the canal , and through the canal to the Illinois River , a share of its rich and savory ingredients . Latterly its sluggish tendency has been principally directed toward the lake , and Ihe citizens of Chicago are beginning —notwithstanding their well known temperance proclivities—to shun the clear crystal water . Doctors and professors , and other people of an analytical turn of mind , are making unpleasant statements as to the number of parts of solid sewer matter they ha...
SOME INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
SOME INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS We find in the last number of tho MiU levs National Magazine , an account of some experiments with bran for fertilizing purposes that are worthy of wide publication . It seems that Messrs . N . Long &amp; Co ., of Russcllville , Ky ., purchased , in 1876 , a piece of land that had been in cultivation for a period of eighty years , and which had of late produced so little wheat that it had been about abandoned for the purpose . The new owners being extensive millers of wheat , and having largo quantities of bran on hand , concluded to try an experiment . Selecting four acres of the worn out land , they spread over it bran at the rate of a ton and a half to the acre . The wheat was then sown , and both wheat and bran harrowed in . The result was a yield of 55 bushels of wheat per acre in 1877 . The following year the yield was 35 bushels per acre . After this the land was seeded to clover , which grew to the height of from thirty to thirty-six inch...
OUTLOOK OF THE WOOL TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
OUTLOOK OF THE WOOL TRADE The wool boom seems to have taken a fresh start , and the excitement in regard to future prices , and anxiety of buyers to secure the coming clip before it is sheared is greater than at any former time this year . A famer in Gage County , Nebraska , writes that he has been offered twentyeight cents for his clip of fine unwashed , deliverable at his farm . This is an advance of ten cents per pound over the price at which he sold his wool in June , 1879 . The same gentleman says that he has been offered $ 8 . 00 per head for a flock of 400 sheep that he bought in Michigan last October at $ 3 . 75 per head , delivered on his farm in Nebraska . We hear of similar cases in other parts of the country , and while we would like to see our friends get all that their wool and sheep are worth , we would not advice them to hold on too long , as there is always a turning point , beyond which prices can not go . Refering to the future of the wool trade , thc United State...

TARIFF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
TARIFF . It seems strange that just now , when efforts are being made for the abrogation of duties upon certain articles of general demand by all classes of our people , and when old-time fanatics are still forgetful of the causes which led our infant republic to impose a barrier to extensive imports , that in France the effort to free the people from needless burdens in the way of import duties , is being similarly discussed . The debates in the French Chamber of Deputies are unusually thorough . The Minister of Agriculture and Commerce ( M . Tirard ) drew a striking picture of the fallacies and disadvantages of protectionism in the past . Speaking of the memorable Continental blockade of Napoleon the First , he pithily remarked : One industry only was in a prosperous condition—that of smuggling ; and yet the Government had courts of law along the frontiers which dealt very summarily with smugglers , either sending them to the galleys or to the guillotine . Seized goods were burnt ...
INSURANCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
INSURANCE . TIIE VALUED POLICY BTLL AT ALBANY . Among the bills at Albany , affecting insurance companies , is one known as the valued policy scheme , whereby it is proposed to make the amount of the policy the measure of the loss to be paid by the company . This Sessions Bill , as it is called ( after its sponsor and promoter ) has been before tho Legislature several years in succession , and has been defeated regularly every year ; although at the last session it came pretty near being foisted upon Ihe statute books . This time , ihe Insurance Committee ( after hearing the arguments of Messrs . Hope , Notnian , and Jones , who gave their views as underwriters us to the effect of such a law ) reported tho bill adversely , as being one that should not pass . But Mr . Sessions has secured the reference of his pet measure to the Committee of the Whole , and so the attention of the Legislature must again be directed to a matter which the proper cominitlee have judged not worth wasting ...

LITERARY THE SIFTING OF PETER . BT H . W . LOMOPBLLOW . A FOLK-SONG . Behold Satan hath desired to have you , that he may sift you as wheat —St . Luke , xxli , 81 . In St . Luke s Gospel we are told How Peter in the days of old Was sifted ; And now , though ages Intervene , Sin Is the same ; while time and scene Are shifted , Satan desires us , great and small . As wheat , to sift us , and we all Are tempted ; Not one , however rich or great Is by his station or estate Exempted . No house so safely guarded Is But he , by some device of his , Can enter ; No heart hath armor so complete Bnt he can pierce with arrows fleet Its center . For all at last the cock will crow Who hear the warning voice , but go Unheeding , Till thrice and more tliey have denied The Man of Sorrows , crucified And bleeding . One look of that pale suffering face Will make us feel the deep disgrace Of weakness ; We shall be sifted till the strength Of self-conceit be changed at length To meekness . Wounds of the...
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
GOBLIN ROCK . THE TALE OF A LIGHT AT SEA A NET IN TWENTY MESHES . ( Continued from page 139 . ) No , no , thanks , cried Pigou , if I am to go without him . Good night to you , Master Pigou . Member me to your brother Richard . When does the Mark Antony sail ? On Saturday , Tom . Good night , said Pigou . But , hi ! Harry Brack , cant I take any message for you ? There was no reply , for the young man had already ascended the steps into the lighthouse , preceded by Mackey with the lantern . Good-night , Tom Orgus , cried Pigou , as the sail was hoisted , and the little boat slowly glided through the darkness , farther and farther towards the lights by the little harbor . For , though a part of the bay was light with the rays cast by the great lantern at the lighthouse top , Michael Pigou s course seemed to be through the darkness ; and , as Tom Orgus turned away to follow his guest into the building , he said , half aloud ; • If it wouldnt be a big sin , and one as would make me unc...
ECCENTRIC RETURNS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 4 March 1880
ECCENTRIC RETURNS Mr . Cowden Clarke tells a story of a gentleman whose return of his income to the tax commissioners ran : For the last three years my income has been somewhat under one hundred and fifty pounds ; in future it will be more precarious , as the man is dead of whom I borrowed the money . In a similar serio-comic vein did a countryman , not too proud to confess the smailness of his means , respond to the kind inquiries of the commissioners for the income tax , in tbe earliest days of its imposition . He rhymed ; putting in a claim for exemption in this form : I , John Ware , do declare I have but little money to spare . I have , 1 little house , 1 little maid . 2 little boys , 2 little trade . 2 little land . 2 ditto money at command . Rather too little is my little all , To supply with comfort my dear little squall , And 2 * too little to pay taxes at all . By this you see I have children three Depend on me . Sometimes official inquirers get more information than they ...
