AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
AGRICULTURAL CASTOR BEANS . Although a native of a much warmer climate , the castor bean is successfully cultivated in many parts of the Central and Southern States , and might be grown with considerable profit in many localities where it is now almost unknown . As far north as Wisconsin , it frequently ripens a few seeds , but as a rule it will mature a paying crop but little farther north than central Illinois or Missouri . In the tropics the plant is a perennial , ripening its stalks of rough burry pods , for several successive years , but in the United States it is an annual , usually ripening the first stalks or pods about the first of August , and continuing to mature other successive crops until the plant is killed by frost . The cultivation of the castor bean is as simple and easy as that of corn , and almost any land which will yield a good crop of wheat will produce an equally good crop of beans . It will stand a drouth with less injury than will almost any other farm crop...
HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
HORTICULTURAL . CROSSING AND HYBRIDIZING PLANTS . NUMBER ONE . BY PBOF . W . J . BEAL . If we turn back and read the works on horticulture of one hundred and fifty years ago , we shall be , surprised to see what little progress has been made in the essentials of the art . We shall see many things there clearly told which have since that time been again and again brought out as new and surprising discoveries . The most conspicuous feature during all this time is the improvement by crossing or hybridizing the flowers . Something : was known in reference to this more than ; two thousand years ago , but the knowi-i edge was very crude and imperfect For the past ten or fifteen years ; in some portions of France , Germany , Great Britain ^ and North America , there . has been great activity in this direction . The subject is or very great importance to any person who grows jS &gt; Iants in field , orchard , garden or / green-hpuse . A ; , ; Some of us can remeniber when the be lie...
THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
THE POULTRY YARD CHICKEN CHOLERA A PARASITICAL DISEASE . Last month , before the Academy of Science in Paris , an interesting com munication on chicken cholera by Mr . Pasteur was read , which we translate with some abbreviations . The general features of the disease are quite familiar to poultry lovers and breeders in this country . The inert , drooping wings , the puffed-up appearance of the feathers , the invincible drowsiness , the sort of silent agony , rapidly resulting in death , with scarcely more than a few flaps of the wings ; all these symptoms will be readily recognized . Mr . Pasteur has found that this common disease is caused by a microscopic organism which he revealed , and actually inoculated with it Guinea-pigs , and some fowls . In the case ot Guinea-pigs the result of this inoculation was not fatal . It , however , produced an abscess , the dis cbarges from which , if inoculated on fowls , produced certain and early death A few drops of it on food , given to poul...

MONEY AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
MONEY AND COMMERCE FINANCE , TTJESDAT EVENING , March 23 d , 1880 . The near approach of the first of the month is causing an increased demand for money from operators in grain and provisions who have their regular monthly settlements to make . There is also a good demand from other business channels , and the daily transactions in loans are quite large . But the supply of funds seeking investment is large and market easy to good borrowers at t &gt;@ 8 per cent for commercial loans . Real estate paper pays 6 @ 8 per cent on city property , and 7 @ 8 per cent on farmB . Exchange on New York is selling at 75 c @ $ 1 . 00 discount per $ 1 , 000 . Speculation in railroad and mining stocks has been less active than for many weeks and there are signs that the so-called speculative boom has at last reached a climax , for the present at least , and the public need not be surprised to see atsharp decline in every species of stocks .

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS—No . 9 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS—No . 9 CONTROLLING THE SEX OF OFFSPRING . There has been much discussion as to the possibility of controlling the sex of the offspring of our domestic animals . Several plans have been suggested by which it has been claimed this could be done , and a large number of persons accept some one or other of these as effective . It would often be of great convenience to a breeder if he could secure young animals of one or the other sex at will . The dairyman might desire only cow calves ; the beef maker onlv bulls , to be made steers . Instances are occasionally met with iu which either a sire or dam has produced offspring only of one sex . The writer has known cases in which cows have produced heifer calves for five or six successive years , while others have as persistently produced bull calves . Some bulls , it is well known , sire calves of one sex almost exclusively . While the sexes are produced in about equal numbers , when a large number of cases is taken into...
ABOUT SOME CHICAGO HORSES . ETC [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
ABOUT SOME CHICAGO HORSES . ETC A recent look through the stables of the Downer &amp; Bemis Brewing Company of this city , afforded us much pleasure . We were first introduced to the office of the company , in which this city has no equal , and probably no other city its superior . It is a palace in miniature , full of comfort and elegance . The stable is a magnificent one , with stalls for one hundred horses , upwards of eighty of which are filled with the best draft horses this country and Canada could produce . The matched four-in-hand , black Clydesdales , are very superior ; the four dapple grays , nearly equal them ; and the four Cleveland bays , though lighter , are appropriate for the purpose required . Two pairs of Percherons are fine , as are the smaller pairs for more active delivery . Then there are half a dozen teams for hauling grain , and half a dozen more for different purposes , and numerous horses of all work . The little black horse , Fred Douglass , was t...
SHEEP SHELTERED AND EXPOSED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
SHEEP SHELTERED AND EXPOSED Lord Ducie had 100 sheep placed in a shed , which ate twenty pounds of Swedish turnips per day per head , another 100 in the open air ate twenty-five pounds per head per day for a certain period . When they were weighed the former lot averaged a gain of thirty pounds per head over the latter . In another experiment five sheep were fed in the open air , between the 21 st of November and the 1 st of December , at a mean temperature of forty-four degrees . They consumed ninety pounds of food per day . At the end of this time they were weighed and had lost two pounds each . In a shed five other sheep were placed and allowed to run at a temperature of fortynine degrees ; they consumed at first eightytwo pounds of food , but fell off to seventy pounds per day , and increased in weight twenty-three pounds . —American Agriculturist .

QUERIES AND ANSWERS QUERY : INJURY BETWEEN THE KNEE AND ELBOW JOINTS . —J . B , Dana , 111 ., says : In looking over the REVIEW I find that any subscriber is entitled to the privilege of consulting your VETERINARIAN . I avail myself of this opportunity of addressing you in regard to a horse of mine which was crippled on the 16 th of November last . He was running at the time in the pasture , and in turning , sprained his left foreleg . I was watching him and heard the shock . He was turning to the left and his hind feet slipped , but he did not fall ; he went on three legs , the injured limb appearing useless , as though it was broken . I had a horse doctor examine it in about three-quarters of an hour after the accident . He said the muscles were broken loose from their fastenings above the knee , but that he would finally recover . I put him into a sling and have kept him there about half of the time . The limb swelled very bad f sgm the shoulder to the foot . I have used wormwood...

DOGS vs . CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
DOGS vs . CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE A . D . Hopkins , Corresponding Secretary of the West Virginia Sheep Breeders and Wool Growers Association , writes as follows to the Wheeling Intelligencer : We do not seem to appreciate sheep now as they did when Spain was rich in her flocks , and had ships and money to furnish the reckless young man who desired to go West in 1492 . It has been remarked to me of late by prominent men in the State that as long as there are more voters interested in dogs than in sheep , there is no use trying to enact laws that will discourage dog husbandry . They say that some of our representatives are afraid to say anything against the dogs for fear that if they should be candidates for office again they would lose the support of the dog owners . If the majority of the voters of this State were more interested in the support of wolves than in feeding and clothing their own children , and would desire that there be no laws enacted that would prevent the wolves from ...
THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 25 March 1880
THE DAIRY . DANISH COMPETITION . The London Grocer says that Danish butter brings the highest price in any market in England during the Winter months , because it is the best , for the reason that the cows in Denmark calve between the months of November and January , and they and their produce are much better cared for than in any other producing country in Europe . The butter is made on estates or large farms where are usually kept from 100 to 280 cows , and in some cases even more . A person is also kept who has had some years training in the preparation of milk for butter-making purposes . Further , the increased demand for Danish butter has brought prices gradually to such a height that the farmers find it pays them to feed the cattle with their corn , in addition to the most celebrated feeding stufls that can be obtained in England or America . The best Danish butter will yet grow finer by degrees , and the second quality , now selling in London at about 130 s . to 140 s . per ...
