A Great Dumping Ground . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
A Great Dumping Ground . All adulterated foods are intended to cheat the consumers . Every person handling the frauds from the producer down , is equally guilty . They are all engaged in a villainous business , and each and every one engaged therein knows it . European countries have stringent laws against the making and vending of adulterated food , and the laws there are enforced , But while their own subjects are protected , export is freely allowed . The United States is the general dumping ground for all this trash . Anything that ¦ is too mean for anyone else , they think good enough for the greatTankee nation ; and our wise law makers are too deeply enthralled with cross road politics to pay attention to such matters as poisoning the people with vile adulterations . The people will probably have a new style of law makers some of these days . Certainly so when they become fully awake to the great and little villainies of food adulterations and legislation thereon .
A Russian Silo . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
A Russian Silo . It seems an American , plan of building a silo is being adopted in Russia . A land owner there writes to the London Times of ensilage made in the following way : A doop , oblong excavation was made in a solid clay ground , seven feet to eight feet deep ; stems of maize , leaves and stems of cabbages , weeds , etc ., were cut and put into it in rows of eight inches to ton inches thick . Between each row some salt was spread , When it was done , boards were put on the ensilage , and then all the earth which was dug out was put on them . This was mado in the beginning of October , and in the winter the cattle enjoyed a very good food . In 1888 . the writer mado a silo in precisely this manner , at Chalsworth , 111 ., and filled it with beet tops and crowns . In February the ensilage came out green , only slightly acid , and sound except a crust next the earth , about six inches thick . This was undoubtedly the first silo ever attempted in America .
The Labor of Women on the Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
The Labor of Women on the Farm . Hard as has been the lot of the farmer in the past , before invention came to his aid , the wives of the farmers are still far bohind in the advantages secured . The loom has been discarded and so has the spinning wheel , while tho sowing machine and washer have lessened tho labor of the household , yet the farmer s wife still has muoh hard work to perform . We may even add that the Btove has superseded the old broad fireplace , and soapboiling and candle-making are occupations of the past , but her labor is still tiresome and confining . When the busy season arrives the hardest work falls to the wife , and everything ? w ? £ s npon her management in order that the labor in the field may not be retarded . The meals must be done on time , and m unknown quantities , while ner task of giving satisfaction , begins with her husband and includes the young tyrant in the cradle . She must be in two or more places at the same time , while her duties must be p...
What Breeders and Seedsmen Have Done . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
What Breeders and Seedsmen Have Done . We may do homage to Franklin , Fulton , Morse , Edison and other grand inventors who have benefited mankind , but the agricultural population is indebted to many who have advanced their interests as greatly as have others in the mechanical departments . But for the continued efforts of breeders , horticulturists and seedsmen , who have no patent laws to benefit them , we would not be blessed with so many improved breeds of stock nor varieties of plants . Collins , Bates , Booth , Lord Western and Bakewell did for the stock-raisers that which would require years of toil , patience and time to accomplish , and they rank as high in their line as do the inventors of modern implements . McCormick gave us the reaper , but he derived a royalty for his labor , while the founders of our improved breeds could not prevent others from appropriating the results of their creation . Livingston , who , with Waring , converted the despised tomato to such forms ...
HORTICULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
HORTICULTURE . Changing the Bearing Year . A Massachusetts pomologist writes that the experience of this season proves that the bearing year of apple trees can be changed If there were no other evidence of the fact , it might be considered unsafe to draw a conclusion from a single example , but it coincides so perfectly with the result of the experiments of various fruitgrowers in removing the blossoms from trees in fruitful seasons in order to induce them to bear in the odd years , that it may be regarded as conclusive . It also tends to prove that exhaustion , resulting from the over-productiveness of the previous year , is a leading cause of barrenness in the unfruitfnl years . If the trees which were so heavily loaded this fall had borne a full crop of fruit last year , there is no probability that they would have produced many apples this season . Possibly , by heavy manuring with suitable materials , and at the proper time , trees may be made to yield fair crops annually . But...
About Seed . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 9 January 1886
About Seed . Seeding time is at hand or near at hand in many localities in the South . In either planting or sowing , the quality of the seed is of more value than many persons suppose . If the seed is mixed with foul seed , and all seed not specially cleaned is more or less so , the time spent in fully cleaning is time well spent . Grain seeds should be first cleaned over sieves specially prepared for the various species . If very extra seed is required , this may be gotten by casting the seed across the barn floor . The heaviest will fly furthest . Now , if you always save your seed from this heavy , perfect seed , sowing the next perfectly cleaned grade for the general crop , it will be—if you start with pure seed—but a few years until you have that , in most respects fully up to a true pedigree variety . , In relation to crops that require cultivating , a short series of years will convince any experimenter of the absolute necessity of using none but the-best seed . Take the pot...

Door Prairie Live Stock Association . This is an association of farmers for the purpose of importing and breeding thoroughbred stock , located at Door Village , Ind . Their attention at present is given to Clydesdale and Cleveland Bay horses , of which they have a large and select stock on hand , a large part of which has but lately arrived from Europe . The association is composed of practical men who understand their business . We are personally acquainted with the manager , £ . S &gt; Fitch , of Oak wood , Ind ., and have always found him an intelligent , courteous gentleman . The success of this association is an example of the advantage of combination among farmers . Sheltering Range Stock . The ranchmen have discovered that with the assistance of a few open sheds facing south they have less difficulty with stock and the losses are fewer . In fact , they claim that the cost of the sheds is less than the loss of stock before sheds were used . It may seem strange to some ...

Teaching Calves to Drink . Every calf must have its neck broke before it can get its nose down in a pail , said an old farmer as he stood astride a young calf , having just been doing Jhis best to accomplish the feat above alluded to . I felt as if I would not have been as much excited as he was for the calf . I am a comparatively young farmer , but have never had any trouble teaching calves to drink . First I take them away from the cow before they get their first meal . After a few hours , . milk-the cow and take the milk to the calf , wetting the hand in it , and putting it to the calf s mouth . The calf will get a taste of the milk , and while sucking your fingers bring your hand down into the milk . Then gently withdraw your fingers when up will come the calfs head . Repeat the operation . Keep cool and goodnatured . As soon as the calfs nose gets into the milk withdraw your fingers from its mouth , but hold your hand against its nose . Keep good-natured . Dont bother too long ...

Crossing the Breeds of Fowls . By looking closely to the hens , very often it will be noticed that among them one or two will lay more eggs than the others . Knowing this , many farmers wives have attempted to prove the laying qualities of their hens by setting the eggs from such , hens only , in hopes of originating a better strain of layers . As a rule , all such attempts have resulted in failure . The layers seem to be produced by chance . But , it may be asked , why is it that good strains have not been founded when the best hens have been selected as the mothers of the future pullets ? The question is easily answered . It is that while the majority of those interested in poultry are careful to select good layers they are indifferent in regard to the roosters , and this oversight is the cause of all the difficulty . Common hens are usually hardy , as they are the result of continued crossing , some of them proving excellent while others are inferior , but the common stock is eas...

MISCELLANEOUS . The Leaf and Adaptability . As showing co-relation in plants with reference to their adaptability to a soil and climate , Prof . Budd in the Students Journal , draws a comparison from the species of a genus , wherein he says : In order that this comparison may show plainly our hypothesis , we must take two plants that are closely related . Let us then take the desert willow of Bussiaand compare it with our native willow , and see where they differ in their leaf . The first difference we will note is in the epiaermis . The epidermis on the under surface of the desert willow contains about 142 , 000 stomata , or breathing pores , to the square inch . The under surface of the native willow contains about 122 , 000 to the square inch . The upper surface of tne desert willow contains 22 , 000 to the square inch and the upper surface of our native willow contains 36 , 000 to the square inch One stoma of the native willow Is about three times as large as one of the desert w...
