AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

AGRICULTURAL ; HOW TO TILE A FARM . ¦¦ Through the courtesy of the publishers , Messrs . Donnelley , Gassctte & Loyd , we have secured advance sheets of The Model Farms , and Their Methods , a new book by Mr . Saml T . K . Prime , of Dwight , 111 . Perhaps no better idea of the character and value of this book can be gained , without its actual perusal , than the following account of the way a wet farm was made one of the most profitable farms in the State by the use of drain tile . Just at this time , after farmers all over the West have been burrowed up at home by impassable roads , or have waded on foot to shop and post-office , through fences and across fields , there can be ho more interesting reading to them . The lessons of this Winter ought to be impressive ones , and the way to well drain farms and good roads should be well studied and acted upon . We particularly solicit from our subscribers such practical experience as they may have of the uses of drain tile u...

H ORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

H ORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN .-NO . II . If a person would enjoy the full benefit that may be derived from the garden , he must anticipate the season somewhat and take time by the forelock . He must be like the man employed to turn the grindstone in a ship-yard . Some of his fellowlaborers found him there at his post , one day , busily engaged in turning the stone . When asked why he was turning when there was no one with tools to grind , he answered , that he was getting a few turns ahead . The idea was a good one , although in his instance the labor was thrown away . Getting a few turns ahead can be done in many kinds of work , but in none more satisfactorily than in garden-work . The man who cleans up the beds in Fall , burning all the rubbish that will interfere with the plough in Spring , has got a turn ahead of the man who has made no preparation for the Spring s work , but leaves it all to be done when the season opens . There is a great deal in taking advantage of work . Ins...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL LOSSES BY THE CHINCH BUG . Prof . Thomas , State Entomologist of Illinois , states in his forthcoming report upon this insect to the Bulletin of the United States Entomological Commission that the Chinch-bug ( Blissus leucopterus Say ) is unquestionably one of the most formidable insect pests with which the farmers within the wheat producing area of the TJnited States have to contend . Although not exceeding a grain of wheat in size , rather slow-motioned and possessing no other weapon of destruction than its tiny slender beak , yet the species is enable to make up by number for the lack of individual capacity for destruction . Tho locusts of the West are the only creatures of this class which exist within the bounds of our national domain whose multiplication causes more sweeping destruction than does that of this diminutive and seemingly insignificant insect . In the territory west of the Mississippi it is without a rival . Dr . Shinier says that it attained the maxi...

MONET AND COMMERCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

MONET AND COMMERCE . FINANCE , TUESDAY EVENING . March 9 th . 1880 . The money market has shown a eood degree of activity , the demand for loans being from borrowers representing nearly all branches of business , operations in grain and provisions being far tlie most numerous . The demand , however , has not been up to the supply , and those having good paper or collaterals to offer are readily accommodated at 6 @ 7 per cent ., when large sums are wanted . Ordinary business paper is taken at 7 @ 8 per cent . Loans on city real estate pay 6 @ 8 , and on farms 7 @ 8 per cent ., the latter rate being free of commission , aud 7 per cent when the borrower pays the broker for negotiating the loan . Some idea of the abundance of money available for business may be inferred from tlie fact that the Chicago banks bold about $ 44 , 000 , 000 on deposit , an increase of nearly $ 30 , 000 , 000 over December , 14 , 1879 , and $ 16 , 000 , 000 over March 1 , 1878 . The loans are also $ 3 , 000 , ...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-No . 7 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-No . 7 . VARIATION AND CORKELATION . As has been intimated , the causes which produce variation in animals of the same class , are mainly those which we include in the term , conditions of life . Thus a genial climate and abundant food will , almost inevitably , cause larger size , while insufficient or innutritions food will cause the animals so fed to vary from the . normal type in the opposite direction . The selection of the parents often is the direct cause of variation . The parents may perpetuate variations possessed by themselves or their ancestors , or the union of their characters may produce apparent or real variation . A ball struck by two forces not in the same direction will move in a path lying between those on which each force , acting separately , would have carried it Sometimes we can give no satisfactory explanation of cases of variation , as in the case of the production of some deformities . We can not tell why a calf should be born with ...

LIVE STOCK NOTES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

LIVE STOCK NOTES . STOCK in Texas ls increasing in price . CATTLE in Southern Kansas are wintering well . COLORADO and Montana ranchmen dont like to be told by Eastern writers on sheep that the combing wool sheep is what they need . They are well aware tbat the sheep to keep in large flocks on extensive ranges is the Merino . The coarser and longer wools are for small farms ; or moderate sized enes at least . FBOH the California Farmer we learn that the stock interest will be better attended to , as choice blood stock is being appreciated better , and in better demand ; valuable heavy hones for all work , are much sought for and command good prices . So with best breed of dairy stock , sheep , swine , poultry and stock of all classes . Blood stock sells , while scrub stock dont pay the keeping . Ms . LINTON S bull , Lord Irwin , after winning above one hundred prizes , and occupying , for above ten years , a prominent position in several good herds as a successful sire , is gone at ...

THE DAIRY Reported Expressly for tbe FARMERS REVIEW . NORTHERN IOWA BUTTER AND CHEESE ASSOCIATION . THE relative quality of milk for butter production was discussed , showing that great extremes are found . It was shown that nearly all the creameries are adopting the grading of the milk received at the factory , by the use of graded tubes . This subject was referred to a committed to report on the subject of percentage in grading . EVENING SESSION . The evening session was entertained with music by a local Glee Club and J . Q .

VETERINARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

VETERINARY . QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY : SPINAL MENINOITIS . —J . H . D ., Comstock , Ind ., writes to the FABMEBS REVIEW , as follows : Accepting your offer to answer all questions on the diseases of horses , I take the present opportunity to consult you . A few days ago I started with my team of young horses to drive to our town , a distance of about ten miles ; when about half way . I noticed one of the horses hanging back in the harness , and not inclined to travel u p with his mate . He soon began to sweat profusely , and to tremble in his hind parts . He finally began to stagger as if weak across the swill of the back and at last fell down and appeared in great pain . I got the harness oft as soon as possible , and though I had plenty of assistance we could not get him on his legs again . He had goodkse of his fore limbs , but his hind legs appeared powerless ; we finally got him on to a stone-boat and drew him into a barn close by and he has not been able to get up since . ...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

THE APIARY SUCCESSFUL APIARIANS . The most successful bee-keepers , those who have tried the business in anything like an extensive way , have been those who have scattered their apiaries . We mean located their colonies , from one to two hundred in a locality , then placing a similar number a few miles distant . In this way , within the radius of eight or ten miles from the central apiary , it will be seen that a very large number may be located , the one interfering in no way with the other , and yet covering a sufficient extent of territory so that there will be no danger that the food supply will fail them all , even in the worst of seasons , while all will be within the supervision of the experienced owner . The late Mr . Grimm , of Wisconsin , prob ably made more money from his bees than any other western man , his colonies numbering thousands . It was his system to make an arrangement with a farmer in what he considered a favorable locality for the gathering of honey , to per...

THE FLOATING APIARY ABANDONED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

THE FLOATING APIARY ABANDONED Mr . Perrine , the gentleman who tried the floating apiary on the Mississippi river last year , became convinced , after the expenditure of several thousand dollars , that the project must be abandoned as a failure : The trouble is , in a great measure , that the bees , in returning to the barge laden with stores , are always liable to fall short ot reaching it and to perish in the water . They are also liable to be chilled by the cool shifting breezes that always prevail over and near large bodies of running water . Mr . Perrine , we understand , will soon remove the colonies that he has left in Louisiana , some 600 in number , to the North . They have good stores of honey to live upon , and will . he ready for work as the flowers open here in the Spring .

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

THE POULTRY YARD SETTING HENS . It is commonly thought that a setting hen , provided she is of little intrinsic value , requires no attention beyond giving her some food occasionally , and taking care that she does not let Ihe eggs get cold . This is a great error . If no other reason , at least the kindness which we owe to all animal creation should prompt us to attend to the wants of so patient and exemplary a creature ; but even selfish motives require this . A good brood will never be hatched and reared- by an unhealthy or half-starved hen . The bird has to afford the warmth of life , first to the eggs and then to the chickens , for about three months ; this she can not do without nourishment It is true that during incubation a hen requires little food . One good meal a day is quite enough . Nature provides that her digestion should go on very slowly . In tbese early months , when mornings and evenings are cold , this oue meal should be given about mid-day . A dust bath of dry a...

DETECTING ARTIFICIAL BUTTER [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

DETECTING ARTIFICIAL BUTTER In a Sheaf item last week we gave in a brief way a method for detecting oleomargarine . In Nature for January 29 th , we find a more elaborate statement of the test as follows : With regard to distinguishing artificial from natural butter , M . Donny remarks , in a recent note to the Belgian Academy , that the two behave very differently when heated between 150 ° and 160 ° in a capsule or test-tube . At this temperature artificial butter produces very little froth , but the mass undergoes a sort of irregular boiling , accompanied by violent jerks which tend to project some of the butter out of the vessel . The mass grows brown but this is by reason of the caseous matter separating out in clots on the walls ; the fatty portion of tlie sample sensibly retains its natural color . Natural butter , on the other hand , heated to 150 ° or 160 ° produces abundant froth , the jerks are much less pronounced , and the mass grows brown but in a different way . A good...

JEALOUSY AMONG STOCK BREEDERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 11 March 1880

JEALOUSY AMONG STOCK BREEDERS The manner of conducting the business of breeding stock is different in the United States from that of any other country . There is a jealous disposition between the breeders of the various breeds that leads them into words or actions entirely disrespectful to each other , and engenders the disposition to build up their favorite breed by traducing a different race in the hands of another . Such is not the case elsewhere , and the feeling should not flnd place in the mind of an honorable breeder anywhere . This is not only true in reference to the different breeds of stock , but is also the case among rival breeders of the same breed . The readers of agricultural papers and stock journals during the last few years , must have observed this bitter feeling ot acrimony continually carried on in their columns , the effect of which is not only to hinder improvement , but it is detrimental to the interest of those participating in it . In calling attention to ...
