AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

AGRICULTURAL TIME WASTED IN DOING CHORES . BY PROFESSOR W . J . BEAL . The difference between the cost and the price received for farm products is not profit . In some places there is more money made in selling cattle at ten dollars each , than there is in another place where they sell for fifty dollars . In the Northern States , where cattle and sheep must be fed for six or seven months of the year , what should be the profits is often swallowed up in the hard labor expended in care of the animals . Stock for market should be kept growing every day of their lives . The writer by no means favors neglect , but he wishes to call attention to a few common errors in arrangements for Winter care of stock ; For the most perfect protection from fire , farm buildings should be small and scattered , one in a place , over the farm ; but for convenience in care of animals , they should all be in one group . For very large farms , the extra cost of moving the hay and grain to the barns , and th...

PERMANENT GROUNDS FOR A STATE FAIR . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

PERMANENT GROUNDS FOR A STATE FAIR . Mr . J . A . Patterson , of Whiteside County , Illinois , after remarking that the lale Illinois State Fair fell far short of what it should have been , both in attendance and as an exhibition , writes the FARMERS REVIEW as follows regarding the permanent location of the fair , and the establishment of district grounds in different portions of the State . As these questions are sure to be discussed quite largely this Winter , we gladly give Mr . Patterson a hearing . This state of affairs , incomplete arrangements , and poor accommodations , must occur at all temporary fair grounds gotten up for one or two years only , whereas , if permanently located , good improvements would be made and sufficient preparations made to meet the wants and comforts of all that wish to spend a week to see and be seen , and to learn what is to be learned at a great State Fair . Visitors would return home fully satisfied , and all prepare to go the next year . The fa...

LIME IN AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

LIME IN AGRICULTURE The Journal of Forestry briefly sums up many of the uses of lime when - applied to the soil . The effects of lime , as will be seen , are in part mechanical and in part chemical . 1 . Upon deep alluvial and clay soil it increases the crop of potatoes , and renders them less waxy . Sprinkled over potatoes in the store-heap , it preserves them , and when riddled over the cut sets , it wonderfully increases their fertility . • 2 . Lime eradicates tlie finger-and-toe disease in turnips , and gives greater soundness to the bulbs . 8 . It gives , when applied to meadow land , a larger produce ol more nutritious grasses . It also exterminates coarse ancl sour grasses , destroys couch grass , and acts powerfully upon rye grasses . 4 . Upon arable land it destroys weeds of various kinds . 5 . It rapidly decomposes vegetable mat ter , producing a large amount of food for plants in the form of carbonic acid gas . 6 . It destroys or neutralizes the acids in the soils ; hence...

DEPTH AND DISTANCE OF DRAINS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

DEPTH AND DISTANCE OF DRAINS There is no arbitrary rule , says a recent English author of a work on drainage for use in schools , by which the depth and distance between the drains can be definitely fixed . This entirely depends on the soil . The depth may vary from three to six feet , and the distance apart from fifteen to forty feet , except under very peculiar circumstances . Three feet minimum is the depth at which a drain pipe should be laid on strong adhesive clays , where only the top water requires an outlet ; the latter depth at closer intervals will prove the most efficient . There are , however , few clays that are not traversed by faults or water bearing sand ; even on the strongest clays the soil can be disturbed to a sufficient depth to allow the rain water to percolate—the more satisfactory will be the results . Hence the advantage of draining strong clays in dry seasons . Owing to their shrinkage , rents and fissures occur , giving freer circulation to the water . By...

TOBACCO CULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

TOBACCO CULTURE No . 9—STRIPPING . After the Bprouts or leaves ( aa in France , Germany and Cuba ) are hung up in covered sheds or lofts , admitting the lightand air freely on all sides until thoroughly cured , a period of time covering from six to twelve weeks . After tliis drying , or curing , a moist juicy day , as the Yankees call it , is chosen ; the tobacco is taken from the poles or latlis , as the case may be , and piled in heaps ready for the stripper . The dry leaf haB scarcely more odor than any other dry ! leaf ; it is its peculiar fermentation known as sweating , that gives it tlie well-known fragrance of tlie weed . AHate EngliBh writer on tobacco says : various liquors , or fluid mixtures , are UBed to promote this fermentation , and , at the same time , to give the tobacco that peculiar flavor which constitutes the difference of samples . With some of their choicest Cavendish the Americans use cider ; and the tobacco growers of Cuba apply a fluid mixture of various a...

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

HINTS ON LITE-STOCK THE FAT STOCK SHOW . The Chicago Pat Stock Show for ttie year 1879 has become an item in the history of our country . We are pleased to be able to write of it as being a success financially , and the Best exhibition of fat stock ever seen in this country , and seldom , if ever , surpassed in any other . Similar exhibitions in England , during the last half century , have done more to systematize the breeding of meat producing animals than all other shows of live stock . In our country there had been nothing of the kind organized , and our breeders and feeders had no general idea to guide them—each pursuing the course he had learned from experience . The Illinois State Board of Agriculture , realizing the great need of establishing such an exhibition as an educator of the masses , determined lo organize and manage such a show . That its influence might be wide-spread , it was divested of all local limits and thrown open to the world for competition . And further t...

THE SHORT-HORN BREEDERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

THE SHORT-HORN BREEDERS . The American Association of Short-Horn Breeders met in Chicago , October 29 . The meeting was not a large lone , but many men from the States and Canada , prominent in the interest , were present . The greater part of the time of the session was spent in considering pleuro-pneumonia , its prevalence at the East , and the means that have been and should be taken to stamp it out . Canadian members were quite profuse in suggestions as to what tlie United States Government should do in the premises , stating that the Canadian Government would heartily co-operate in any action that had for its object the complete eradication of the disease . An Ohio member suggested that one necessary thing to be done was the passage and enforcement of strict regulations regarding the importation of animals from foreign countries where the disease prevails . A committee was appointed , consisting of T . C . Jones , of Ohio , Emory Cobb , of Illinois , Clarence Matthews , of Indi...

V ETERINARY PATHOLOGY AND SYMPTOMS OF IN FLUENZA IN HORSES .

This disease is known among the majority of horsemen by various designations of horse fever , epidemic catarrh , catarrhal fever , distemper , etc . Those changes in the nomenclature of diseases is not only ridiculous and unnecessary , but often lead to fatal results—by them our description of disease becomes involved in obscurity . We are more likely to disagree as to the proper treatment , and any investigations which may be made into the character of the disease is much more difficult than nature intended .

THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

THE POULTRY YARD . DRESSING POULTRY FOR MARKET . As the Holidays—the season when the Turkey , Chicken , Goose and Duck are in demand approaches , the poulterer naturally seeks the very best dressed poultry for his customers . There are two ways of dressing poultry for market—dry picked and scalded—fowls dressed in the former way , in all cases bringing the highest prices . It should be the aim of every farmer in disposing of his poultry to ship it in as good condition as possible in order to catch the eye of the butcher or grocer , and secure a ready sale . Greater skill is required to dry pick poultry than most people imagine in order that the bird may look plump and handsome . To do this work properly , or with any degree of satisfaction , the fowls should be plucked when warm , that is , immediately after they are killed , as , if allowed to get cold before stripping the feathers , you are very apt to tear the flesh . Commence first by plucking the wing and tail feathers , then t...

HORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 December 1879

HORTICULTURAL IRON FILINGS FOR PEAR TREES . Mr . Geo . A . Hubbard , Ijfew Haven . Conn ., writes the Scientific American that it is conjectured that New Haven county has a larger supply of choice pear trees than any other county in the United States . Some fine varieties , notably the Flemish Beauty , and White DOyene . are generally failures . They set well with blossoms ,, but the young fruit cracks , prematurely ripens , and drops off Mr . Hubbard thinks the general success of the pear in that locality , is due to tlie fact lhat the sandysoil contains a proportion of iron , which he has come to believe is a necessary element in pear culture . He thinks the quantity there , however , is insufficient for the needs of the two varieties named . He bases this conclusion mainly on the fact that a Flemish tree fertilized annually from the sweeping of a smith s shop , in which there is a large quantity of iron filing and bits ot iron , gives a good yield of most excellent fruit . He sug...
