THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
THE POULTRY YARD A NEW BAME FOWL . There was introduced into England , from India , about two years ago , a breed of game fowls known as the Aseel—the Indian for thorough-bred . In remud to them , one of our English exchanges remarks that they are a very striking and handsome breed , and no one can see their bold , keen eye , upright carriage , strength of frame and hard feather , without recognizing them to be a true type of fighting bird , as indeed they ought to be , since they have been bred for hundreds of yeare solely for fighting purposes in the native Indian courts , and the purity of each particular strain jealously guarded . This fact , too , of their having been bred solely with a view to lighting , explains what seems to puzzle at present the reporters ! and the public . There is no standard color ! among them . They may come of anyj color from any particular pair . In India the selection has been for fighting properties entirely , with an entire disregard to , color ; a...
THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
THE APIARY TRANSFERRING BEES-DESTROYING MOTHS . Editors of FARMERS REVIEW : —As I am a subscriber to your paper , I will feel obliged to you if you will inform me of the best time to drive bees from one hive to another this Spring . Also if you know of any thing or anv way that moths can be destroyed in the hives , as I have some in mine . If there is any thing that will destroy them without injuring the bees , I would like you to inform me through the REVIEW . WM . HART . Adair Co ., Mo . The best time to drive or transfer bees is at the time of fruit tree blossoms . The combs are then light and easily transferred from the old hive into the new . By using sufficient care , this may be done at Any time , but with the combs heavily ladtoed with either brood or honey , it is trou- \ ble * ome and vexatious . Of the apiarist only keeps Italian bees he trill have no trouble with the moths . Even with black bees there will be no trouble if the colonies are all kept strong . Keeping stron...

DOGS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
DOGS . EDITORS FARMERS REVIEW : I send the following , which I clip from our county paper , that you may publish it , in order to bring it before the many readers of your paper , hoping that it will find a place in all agricultural journals of the land , and the people be awakened to the subject of dogs against sheep , in which all are directly or indirectly interested . It is apparent to all , that the dog holds no comparison to the sheep in regard to his necessity and value for the use and comfort of mankind . Then why let the dog roam at large , preying upon harmless , innocent sheep ? I know of no objection to persons keeping as many dogs as they please , if they keep them as they require their neighbors to keep other stock . As it now stands , the thing is not equal : Let ushave a remedy . Please lend a helping hand . SUBBRIBEB . Du PAGE CO ., 111 . The triatter of Sheep Husbandry is becoming one of the most important in the country , but one of the greatest hindrances to the r...
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 8 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO . 8 PREPOTENCY . It is a matter of common observation that some animals much more certaiuly transmit their characteristics than do others . As a rule , pure bred animals possess this power in a greater degree than do cross-bred ones ; but there is often much difference in this regard between animals of like breeding . When an animal , or a family , or a breed possesses this ability in a greater degree than is usual , it is said to be prepotent—that is , very powerful . This ability to transmit with reasonable certainty the characters possessed is one of the most important requisites in breeding animals . It can not certainly be predicted , but may be looked for with some certainty in well-bred animals when these are bred with mongrels or cross-bred animals , or those belonging to a more recently formed or less closely bred breed or family . Sometimes an animal is prepotent as to all his visible characteristics ; sometimes as to but one or two . One sire may ...

QUERIES AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
QUERIES AND ANSWERS QUERY ; : PERIODIC OPHTHALMIA . —J . R , ot Council Blufls , Iowa , writes to the FAR - MERS REVIEW as follows : He says , What causes moon-eyes in horses , and how can they be cured ? ANSWER . —Specific ophthulmia , which is a constitutional disuasc ot hereditary origin , was formerly known as moonblindness . One of the peculiarities of this disease is , that once it becomes developed it is liable to return periodically , until finally it terminates in total destruction of one or both eyes ; hence it was thought in olden times that the changes of the moon exercised some influence over it . This , however , is not so ; the moon has not and can not have any thing to do in producing the malady . The horse is more subject to this disease from the age of four to six than at any other period . He has then completed his growth ; he is full of blood and liable to inflammatory complaints , and the eye is the organ attacked , from a peculiar predisposition in it to inflam...

THE DAIRY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 18 March 1880
THE DAIRY TESTING MILK . The subject of the purchase of milk by the factories , or its value for the production of butter , was taken up at the Iowa convention . H . D . Sherman gave an account of his practice at his factory . He uses graduated glass tubes , placing the average at IS per cent , cream , say at one dollar per hundred pounds , paying above or below , as the milk gave a greater or less per cent , of cream . He did not claim it as perfection , but the best he now knew . The subject was deemed of great importance and consumed a great deal of time , with very conflicting views as to the best way to arrive at a basis . Mr . S . thought farmers would find great advantage in testing their milk at home , thus enabling them to retain only profitable cows in the herd . The subject was at last referred to a committee to experiment and report a scale within thirty days . THE WAR ON OLEOMARGARINE . While the Iowa Dairymen s Association was in session , the other day , Gov . Ocer se...
