A Trans-Mississippi Lesson for Farmers [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

A Trans-Mississippi Lesson for Farmers TO the Editor : As I sat in the cars homeward bound from the great exposition at Omaha , not long since , I wondered how many of the farmers had been profited by what they had seen . Many of them went there . I saw some in western prairie schooners with the horses picketed on vacant lots , while the farmers who had evi : dently come long distances in them , camping on the way , were inside the grounds until night would put an end to their sightseeing . How much of their scanty change the fakirs of the midway side shows got no one can tell . Perhaps what they saw and heard there was a diversion and relief from the daily toil of the farm . But there were helpful lessons to bp learned there . Improved farm machinery , fencing , fine stock , poultry , fruits , grains , and other products were shown in abundance . One thing that might very properly be considered encouraging was , the beautiful exhibit of the C . B . & Q . Railway . It wa...

m « m An Appeal for Agricultural In -struction [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

m « m An Appeal for Agricultural Instruction WE learn that at the present time there ,. .. ¦; are eighteen students pursuing courses in agriculture-at the Illinois State University , one of which is from outside the state and that there are more than fifty students in agriculture in institutions outside the sate that are from Illinois . Recently the little class which is going through tbe motions at the agricultural department addressed to the Illinois Farmers Institute the following communication : We , the agricultural students of the University of Illinois , feel that we have a grievance , which it is our duty to make known to the people of the state and to our legislators . We believe , that the deplorable neglect to , which the college of agriculture has been subjected In the past has not generally been understood and appreciated by the progressive and enterprising people of Illinois . This Is the only college ln the state which pretends to give instruction in agriculture and t...

" Pineapples in Florida [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Pineapples in Florida P INEAPPLES are being grown In some parts of Florida farther north than it was once thought safe to plant them . The practice Of raising them under coyer , so that they may be sheltered from the cold when necessary , has proved remarkably successful . Last February the fine specimens raised by Mr . George H . Wright at Orlando were mentioned in our columns . The luscious ripe pineapples were being shipped at that date . The Sugar Loaf Smooth Cayenne was the variety recommended . In a letter dated at Orlando , November 8 , Mr . Wright says : Our pines have been a big paying Investment this season in fruit and plants . One of my neighbors on a seven-eighths acre plantation has sold in fruit and plants $ 1800 , and has yet at least $ 400 worth more to sell off from the same tract . We have positively demonstrated the fact that pineapples growing here , under partial cover , is the safest and best paying business In Florida . Two thousand dollars will buy the land ...

Kansas Sugar Beets [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Kansas Sugar Beets By R . W . Clothier . P ROF . WILLARD , Manhattan , Kansas , is receiving the heaviest mail of any man in the State just now . A few days ago it was necessary to call in the services of a drayman to have it delivered at the college . ; All this is because of the active * interest of the farmers of Kansas in the investigation of the sugar beet industry which the Kansas Experiment Station is carrying on at the Agricultural College . . About seventy-five samples of beets have been analyzed thus far this season . 1 The percentage of sugar in the juice ranges from seven to eighteen . The average is about 10 per cent . The highest percentage comes from Cloud county , Mr . A . Munger , of Hollis , having sent in two samples which contained 17 . 21 and 16 . 59 per cent respectively . Kearney county sends in the second best samples , J . W . Songstreth and H . C . Nichols , of Lakin , each having sent in samples which contained 16 . 3 and 16 . 18 per cent of sugar , respec...

House Apiaries [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

House Apiaries THE advantage of house apiaries are in my opinion considerable over the , plan of keeping the hives sitting out . From reading of house apiaries I in some way became prejudiced against them , but after trying them on my own account I greatly changed my mind . In arranging a house for bees it is not necessary to construct something out of the ordinary . i and I think this is the reason the house fori keeping bees in , in the past , has not been spoken of favorably . After using a house I would not again under any circumstances keep my bees out in the • usual way . A house is equally good in winter as in summer , and it does away with cellars . and chaff hives , and all these extra equipments . » * * ANY ordinary building will answer . It may be a low one-story building , or 11 it Is a two-story all your equipments and implements may be kept conveniently in the upper story . The building may • be small or large , as suits the size of your apiary . A row of hives : may s...

Poultry Notes [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Poultry Notes B ULLETIN No . 152 , issued by the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station , contains some poultry notes by Mr . F . E . Hege . These notes represent a portion of the work completed during the past year . In reading the bulletin , it will be noted that the houses and other poultry appliances . are very ( V cheap and simple in many cases , some being made of old box or old lumber . This plan was purposely followed , as it was desired by the station to raise poultry with just such appliances as any one would be , able to hove or to make with ordinary farm conditions . The first portion of the bulletin is made up of disease experiments , which , it should be said ,: . were with birds belonging to oth ers . The poultry of . the Experiment Station was free from disease , with very slight exceptions . This was probably due to the health precautions taken , and from which others may see the importance of keeping the poultry yards and houses clean and well cared for . C...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

( Continued on page 1581 . ) a mistaken idea that sheep do not need water . In August and September of 1894 I had 150 ewes with that many lambs in a pasture ( and no other stock ) , and they drank a trough of water every day that held 210 gallons , nearly 1 % gallons average per ewe and lamb . I find if sheep have free access to water they do not drink so much at a time but often , and drink as much on dry feed in winter as on grass in summer . They can , however , go longer and do better without water than other Stock , but thrive much better with it . SHELTER is very necessary to thrift . It is the first necessity in providing for wintering , sheep successfully in this latitude . Pine wool sheep will bear exposure . better than any other kind of sheep . The . open fleece of the large mutton breeds parts on the back when wet and admits the water , which completely drenches the animal so that its abundant fleece is rio longer a protection from cold . Economy in feeding also demands ...

Commercial vs . Fancy Butter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Commercial vs . Fancy Butter • By F . W . Moseley . WE hear about butter selling for fancyp rices , from fifty to sev-enty-five cents per pound . ; All such butter is made in private dairies , or at least all we know anything about . It has always been a question with the writer , whether there was any grade of butter of quality so superior , to the highest commercial butter as to warrant a demand for prices ranging from fifty to ninety cents and even in some instances $ 1 . 00 per pound . The point was to find out whether butter that brought such extremely fancy prices brought them because of intrinsic merit or partly because ot some other associated cause . With the above in view , he wrote to Mr . Rudolph H . Kissel , proprietoro f Inamere Farm , Morristown , N . J ., whose butter , he learned , was-selling for sixty-five cents per pound , and asked him several questions hi regard to its quality . At the time he wrote Mr . Kissel he ; did not know whether Ms butter was made in a ...

Flavor in Butter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Flavor in Butter By P . B . Crosby . IT is a pretty generally accepted fact that flavor In butter is due to bacteria , and it would be better for the butter maker if the fact was more generally accepted as truth . There are , of course , exceptions to this rule , as , for example , garlic in the spring . Unfortunately that is not due to any sort of bacteria , but to the garlic itself and only itself . We say unfortunately because any flavor that is produced by bacteria may be controlled by the butter maker , and undersirable flavors may be eradicated while desirable flavors may be cultivated ; To the dairyman of forty years ago this would seem like nonsense , but it is as of just as much sense as that clover hay will produce milk . Every one knows that if the churn is not washed after churning time , but . left to stand with specks of butter adhering , to the sides until next churning time , and then the cream poured , in to the churn without washing , that the butter will be off fl...

Managing Milk Cows [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Managing Milk Cows By G . B . Dillon . I WISH to give you a few hints on milfc • ing cows . The farm hand who knows how to milk properly is more valuable to the careful dairyman than any other help . To milk a cow requires time and patience . The milk should be drawn slowly and steadily . Some cows have very tender teats ; and if you want a good disposed cow be gentle in your treatment toward her , as she is naturally impatient and does not like rough handling . With constant irritation she will fail in quantity of milk . As the udder becomes filled with milk she is anx ? ious to be relieved of its contents and will seldoin offer resistance without a cause . When a patient cow becomes fractious we can always trace it to the milker . Note this : We should not allow them to stand a long time waiting to be milked . When cows give a large quantity of milk it is very painful when the udder has filled to the utmost , therefore causing them to be come very nervous and restless . To delay m...

Some Christmas Beeves [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 15 December 1898

Some Christmas Beeves WEDNESDAY , December 7 , the run of cattle at the Union Stock Yards , Chicago , was of great volume : and- included many steers , that had been fed with the Christmas market in view . Such fancy cattle met with demand enough to afford outlet for most of the really choice lots at prices about as high as such cattle would have made any previous day this season , but the market was heavily overstocked 1 with medium to good beef steers ,- and such had to be peddled on ; long and faithfully to make within 15 c of the prices paid for such ; earlier that . week . „ A load of fancy 1 , 578-lb . Angus steers sold up to $ 6 . 25 and another load averaging 1 , 630 lbs ., fed near Bloomington ,, went at $ 6 . 00 . These are the highest prices paid since December ,. 1894 , when fancy steers went at $ 6 : 60 ; Sales of choice thick-fat steers at $ 5 . 75 @ 5 . 85 were quite numerous , and all such cattle sold close to steady , but steers below that : gradei were hard sellers...
