THE GREAT ST LOUIS FAIR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

THE GREAT ST LOUIS FAIR . We are safe in the assertion that no city in the United States offers greater attraction at her agricultural displays than St . Louis , ana that of 1884 was fully up to the standard of her previous exhibitions . Visitors were entertained with sights from the time they first caught a view of the magnificent bridge over the Mississippi till the last day of the fair closed . Nor were the pleasures confined to daylight . There were parades every evening , and also a grand ball . One of the most elaborate and elegant exhibitions was the grand carnival of the Veiled Prophet , in which tableaux representing scenes from Shakspeare and history were presented , the whole being unsurpassed by anything of its kind ever before attempted , while the illumintion of the streets at night will be a sight long to be remembered . In addition to the agricultural exhibition was the Exposition , which alone is worth a trip to St . Louis . The fair grounds are very extensive , and...

How Clover Restores the Soil . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

How Clover Restores the Soil . To Btudy the requirement of olover the earliest method ls to compare such with that which is derived from the soil when a orop of clover is grown . The average yield of clover may be as high as two and a half tons ( 5 , 000 pounds ) on some farms , though on light sandy soils it may be less . This amount of clover yields , when reduced , about 300 pounds of ash or mineral matter , all of which is drawn directly from the soil . Of this ash about one-third , or 100 pounds , is pure potash , the same quantity is lime , while the remaining 100 pounds 1 B composed of magnesia ( about forty pounds ) and phosphoric acid ( about thirty pounds ) with small proportions of other minerals . Here we notlcs that two-thirds of the ash of the clover plant is made up of lime and potash , or , we may say , of lime and ashes . It is plain , then , that the best fertilizers for olover are lime and ashes , which may be termed its special foods . Although magnesia and phosp...

A Steam Generator . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

A Steam Generator . Cookingf ood pays , even though done withlittle regard to the saving of labor and fuel . On the other hand , to cook the food for neat cattle with profit , not only should there be animals enough to make it pay , but the rations should be so carefully planned that by mingling of palatable with less relished or coarse food a saving may be effected . Besides , the objeot for which the cattle are kept is an important factor to be considered in the feeding . The flow of milk is increased by steaming the fodder ; the color of the butter is . however , injured . The same ration will prove more fattening , while , at the same time , there will be little or no waste if the steaming is well managed . It is best to have the steamed ration consist of a variety of feed , such as corn fodder , roots , hay or oat straw , with bran and corn meal , or cotton seed , or linseed oil cake or meal . The substitution of one kind of fodders ^ meal for another gives variety and relish ....

AGBiLCUITURAI CHEMISTRY [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

AGBiLCUITURAI CHEMISTRY Soluble Fertilizers . BY P . H . JACOBS . The nek . D of artificial fertilizers depends upon the season during which they are applied . In the cose of ground bone ( phosphate of lime ) the particles Kie given off very slowly , and the fall is , theraSoie , the proper time for its application , in order ttuit the action of frost , air , moisture , and heat r : ay more completely render it appropriate as .. riant food . With superphosphate , which is ground bone rendered soluble with the aid of sulphuric acid , there will be more or less loss of soluble matter from frequent washing of the soil by rains and melting snows . Yet on a majority of farms the application of superphosphate is made in the fall for the reason that it is more convenient to drill it in along with the wheat . The loss of soluble matter , however , depends upon the condition and preparation of the soil . If the ground has been deeply and finely prepared but little danger will ensue from surf...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

The Food and the Animal , Scientific agriculturists , and especially those connected with experimental stations , have for years sought to determine just how muoh food was required by the different species and breeds of domestic animals . Starting out with the well known faot that a large animal , as a rule , requires more food than a small one , they have endeavored to find the relative proportion of food to live weight demanded by each species and breed . The Germans long since established what they term a maintenance ration , in Which a definite weight of various substances is named as being required per 1 , 000 pounds of live weight to keep an animal without inorease or decrease in its weight . These rations have been tested from time to time by breeders of oattle in this country , but from difference in climate or breed of oattle they do hot appear to offer satisfactory results , the amount named being in almost every instance too large for simple maintenance . At a meeting of ...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

Garget and Its Treatment . Although milk fever is not . as prevalent among cows that do not give excessive yields of milk , garget often ocours in herds of ordinary cows . Many remedies have been suggested as a cure for the difficulty , but the simple mthods are best . The Kansas Farmer suggests Indian poke ( or garget root ) , which should be broken up fine , and a teaspoonful put in a raw potato . Put in a root and cap it with a piece of potato . Do not put it all in one potato . Give one a day . Next day give one teaspoonful of pulverized saltpeter ; continue for three days with each . Examine the brisket between the legs and you will find in most cases a stiff , hard appearance of the skin at the lower edge . Make an incision at tbe left side six inches above and push a stick the size of your little finger down three or four inches toward the crusted place ; draw out the stick and insert a piece of poke root the size ot a lead pencil two inches long . It will soon gather , and a...

A Farmer s Premium . Every county fair should encourage the poultry interests , for the value of poultry exceeds some others of the different breeds of stock . The marks distinctive of the breeds are all-well enough for those who believe in feathers alone , but whatofthefarmer sfowl ? Suppose , forinstanoe , a prize should be given for the best hen on exhibition ; is there no method for Buch seleotion ? We think there is . The questions . to be considered should be these : How many eggs has she laid since October 1 st ? How many younri chicks has she hatched and raised ? How much actual profit has she rewarded her owner since that date ? When was she hatched , and how early after being hatched did she begin to lay ? How long does she carry her chicks , and how soon after hatching the chicks did she begin to lay ? What breed , weight and age Is she ? These questions , or something similar , are indicative of the general usefulness of a hen , and the farmer knows how to prize such . A...

THB ORCHARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

THB ORCHARD . Flowing the Orchard . Whether to plow the orchard to the trees each year or to turn the sod in opposite directions in alternate years must depend on the soil and location . It is only in exceptional cases that the former course should be pursued . In this connection the Willamette Farmer states that in poorly drained orchards , on low , black land , the practice of heaping the Bod about the trees has advantage of favoring drainage . Even in this particular , however , it is doubtful if the benefits will overbalance the Inconvenience resulting from such a practice . Better tile the orchard and keep the surface even . Drainage is not always seouredby the deep dead furrows . The ground must have a good natural slope or deep pools will be formed in the de & d furrow just where the young roots demand warmth and drainage . The constant towering of the dead furrow outs off the smaller roots and drives them deep into the subsoil where there is little nutriment . Th...

Maggie ' s Thanksgiving . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

Maggie s Thanksgiving . BY HELEN STANNABD . The Central Market had put on its holiday dress , and presented an unusually attractive appearance . The vegetable stalls were garlanded with bunohes of leek , celery and onions , while cabbages , red and white , beets , parsnips , great golden squash and pumpkins were grouped artistically together . Piles of shells , fantastically arranged , told where the oysters and fresh fish could be found ; the branching antlers of deer and the head of a huge bison plainly intimated that the fine looking beef roast so deftly rounded into shape by skillful hands , was not the rarest , daintiest meat this market house afforded . On every peg and nail , hung ducks , chickens , geese and turkeys , plump and toothsome . Barrels of shining , crimson cranberries stood around , suggestively , and happy orowds bustled gaily in and out . Customers on foot and customers in carriages came and went , giving with their bright costumes , merry talk and laughter , a...

A Baining Trge . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

A Baining Trge . Look in your atlas and you will see off the northwest coast of Africa the Canary Isles , noted principally for the famous Peak of Teneriffe , more than 12 , 000 feet , or two miles and a third , above the level of the sea . This volcanic mountain is covered with snow for a large portion of the year , but in the other parts of the island the climate is warm . One of the largest isles has an iron-bound soil , through which no river or stream can flow , not even a tiny creek , and yet they do not lack for water . In the center of the island grows a large , beautiful tree , with long , pointed leaves that continue green all the year round . The branches of this tree are covered almost the entire time with fleecy clouds ; these keep the leaves dripping with moisture , clear water falling so rapidly from the sharp-pointed ends that the cisterns placed around the tree to receive it are never empty . Hither flock the housewives , the husbandmen , and merry children , with w...

Bow Wow ! Says Towser . A gentleman traveling had , as companion , a large , fierce dog . The conductor ordered the animal to oe removed to the baggage car , as dogs may not travel as first-class passengers . Suddenly a silent pull of the bell apprised the engineer that something was wrong . A shrill whistle , brakes down , and the train came to a stand . It took the conductor and engineer about a minute to find out that neither knew why the bell-cord had been pulled . The passengers , looking to the right and left , could see no reason why the train should halt in the middle of a prairie . After some time the conduotor thought of the baggage car , and glancing in , found the baggage master perched upon a pile ot trunks , while beneath stood the dog , snapping his teeth and , growling . What s the matter ? asked the laughing conductor . Matter enough ! shouted the baggage master . Take that wretched dog away . He chased me up here , and I had to stop the train or he might have eaten...

A Beast of Burden . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 November 1884

A Beast of Burden . AMONG the delightful bits of travel , pleasant to remember , was a journey token one morning in the elegantly furnished drawing room of a friend . By simply pressing the knob of a magnificent stereopticon we were , transported without delay from one country to another . One of the scenes which held for me a peculiar interest was the Desert of Sahara , whose billowy sands stretched themselves far , far away southeast and west . In the foreground a group of Arabs ,, and camels were taking their noonday rest . They seeemed so near , so real , one could almost hear them breathe . The camels , patient creatures , possess wonderful power of endurance , live to a great age , and are as easy to rear as goats . Experiment has shown that they thrive and grow fat on the prickly shrubs and bitter weeds of Nevada , where at one time a number of them were used ln packing salt to the mills on the river , from the marshes lying in the deserts . After feeding , their great deligh...
