NEWS COMMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 13 February 1896
NEWS COMMENTS The calling out of the militia iri Kentucky in connection with preserving order in the Legislature is likely to do more harm than good . Legislative bodies are always jealous of having any dictation from the military . The State Land Commissioner at Lansing , Mich ., has made a ruling that only citizens of the United States can take advantage of a late act of the legislature , setting aside for homestead lands , which had for three successive years been forfeited to the state for unpaid taxes . Spain intends to checkmate our Congressional action in fayor ; of Cuba , by having the new Captain-General Weglerissue - -a ^ proclamation , w ; hen he takes command , practically givingbeiligereht rights to the insurgents ., This makes it more imiportant that pur Congress go a step further and recognize the Cuban patriots as entitled to their independence and welcome them to the family of nations . &gt; ¦ :- ; A .:. /¦ - . . . . •/ s . pri , Monday the two new senators ...

MULES FOR FARMING . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 13 February 1896
MULES FOR FARMING . --P HERE is much unnecessary prejudice 1 against the mule . It exists among -those people who have had little or no experience with this creature . He is not an extravagant eater , in the first place . His • preference is rather for the cheaper provender and a very moderate quantity . of corn and oats . He is built for work , in that his looks do not suggest any aristocratic tendencies . Under sensible handling he is trained to work in . much less time than the average horse . , He has a mind of his own , and will . not always hurry on short notice ; but he is willing to plod along steadily early and Sate , and thus accomplishes more in a day in heavy work than the average horse iteam . No animal endures drudgery so well . Continuous work seems to be a daily ^ advantage . When worked steadily a mule team is very reliable in every essential • requirement . A level head and more ¦• than horse sense is characteristic of this faithful brute . With many years experien...
TEAMING . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 13 February 1896
TEAMING . TO be a first-rate teamster aman must known horses and have a decided liking for them . He should also have a quick eye and , mind to « ee when any trouble exists or threatens -to exist . Nine times out of ten where there is difficulty with a horse in the shape of refusing to pull the load -and showing , a downright balky spirit the • blame lies with tlie man and not with the • horse . . ¦ . / - A-A How many cases of balkiness occur • where there is trouble with the harness , -especially with the collair . An ill-fitting -collar will produce lots of mischief , for It will chafe and gall the horse s shoulders , ^ and obviously render efficient service on ihe part of the horse out of the question . The collar should always fit quite snugly , • so as not to allow it to work about from • side to side while the animal is pulling . Another point for the accomplished teamster to . beatf in mind is that the horse , -to draw a load with / least inconvenience ^ ndexertipn , requires...

- THE NATIONAL DUROC-JERSEY ASSOCIATION . AT THE recent meeting of the National Duroc-Jersey Record Association , J . M . Storiebraker presented a paper on the History of the National . Fronl it we take the following : In reviewing the ground passed over by the National I would say that it certainly has made rapid strides iri breaking up the fallow ground , preparing it for ^ useful work arid making it produce good returns . A little more than four years ago the National was organized with nine stockholders . The first election of ^ officers too plaice at G ; eneseo , 111 ., on the 20 th day of November , 1891 , there having been held a preliminary meeting at Peoria ori Sept . 30 , 1891 . The secretary soon had all the papers that were riecessary to transact business in . readiness and publicly notified the various breeders of DurocrJersey swine to that effect . That this information was well received is attested by the fact that before the next anriual meeting of 1892 there had bee...

ELECTRICITY AND HORSESHOEING [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 13 February 1896
ELECTRICITY AND HORSESHOEING H ORSESHOERS are not permitting other crafts to get ahead of them in the utilization of electricity , the most versatile of energies and powers . They have taken to heating their horseshoes by electricity , and the queer part of it is that they heat the steel and iron under water . This electrical forge can- be put in a water bucket , for it is only necessary that the box , tub , bucket or tank holding the liquid be built out of some non-conducting material . Generally it is a wooden box thirty-one inches long , ten inches deep and eighteen inches wide . The forge is connected with the ordinary arc or incandescent light sys tem , and the positive terminal enters the box and it attached to a-lead plate which is sunk in the liquid . The solution is composed of water , carbonate of soda , borax and alum-. The negative terminal ends in a bar of metal about three-quarters of an inch thick , which rests on the edge of the box . The horseshoe to be heated is he...
