Arable Land . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
Arable Land . Arable land is originally formed by the crumbling of rocks , aud its properties depend on the nature of their principal component parts . Sand , clay and lime are the names given to the principal constituents of the different kinds of soil . Pure sand and pure limestone , iu which there are no other inorganic substances ( except silicious earth , carbonate or silicate lime ) form absolutely barren soil . Now , from whence comes the argellaceous earths in arable land ? What are their constituents , and what part do they play infavoring vegetation ? They are produced by the disintegration of aluminous minerals , by the action of the weather , the common potash and soda felspars and the mountain limestone . It is remarkable the quantity of argellaceous earth which they contain . The aluminous minerals are the most widely diffused ou the surface of the earth . All fertile soils contain alumina , an invariable constituent . The property on which » this depends is that lt al...
Sunflowers . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
Sunflowers . S . I—I _ ER , BUFFALO , MO . It may seem strange to you that a man three score years and more must learn to grow sunflowers properly . Yet such is the case . This year I set out a lot around my garden , and had been in the habit heretofore of letting them take their own course , but one of my sons pinched out all the branches , which forces all into one head of several plants , and it is astonishing what the result is . Some are nearly four feet in cicumterence , and a friend lately asked me for one of them to send to the Exposition at New Orleans , never having seen one so large .

AGMCTrETTrRAL CHEMISTRY [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
AGMCTrETTrRAL CHEMISTRY Making Manure in Winter . BY P . H . JACQBS , During the winter season every fanner should devote his leisure time to the matter of making manure , not only by adding fresh material and composting substances thereto , but by working the heap over , thoroughly mixing it , and rendering it as fine as possible . There ls a large amount of material wasted on the farms in the United States , in the shape of straw and stalks , and such substances are valuable in proportion to their soluble or insoluble condition when placed on the soil as plant food . A ton of wheat straw does not return a ton of matter to the soil , for , as dry as it may seem , it contains a large quantity of water and , when reduced to ashes , the amount of inorganic matter remaining , after the volatile substances have been driven off by heat , may be anywhere from 75 to 300 pounds , according to the quality and dryness of the straw . When straw is mingled with manure , in order to decompose [ ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
Cross-Bred Horses . Before beginning the breeding of horses determine upon the breed which suits your purposes best . There are really but few breeds of horses that are fit for the farmer , not because they possess any superiority over the other breeds , but because by the use of such breeds the farmer can raise horses for use and for market much easier than by using breeds which require skillful management and preparation previous to sales . The thoroughbred horse is unsurpassed for stamina and endurance , and possesses less offal than any other , the bones being small , but hard as ivory , while the muscular development is prominent in proportion to the weight of the animal . Nor is he a small horse , but fine in form , active , and full of life . In breeding the thorough brec horse , however , the farmer will reap no advantage unless he can breed to celebrated sires , as the race-course alone gives occasion for a test of merit , those who do not patronize it being unable to find ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
The Heifer and Her First Calf . Many fanners breed their heifers very young , hoping thereby to save time and bring them into milking earlier , but it is a mistake to do so . Heifers are often seen with calves at their sides before the dams are fully matured , and it requires no observant person to know that such dams cannot produce thrifty , healthy offspring . True , some farmers do not care for the calves at all , and sell them as soon as possible , and many of tbem , knowing the facts , sell the first calves and keep only those that come afterward . But the injury goes further , for it effects the heifer herself . While with calf she has to support the foetus and herself , the consequence being that neither the dam nor the young become fully developed , both being stunted is growth . So far as the calf is concerned , as we have stated , it may be sent to the butcher , but the undeveloped heifer must now complete her growth and yield also milk and butter . If she is undeveloped s...

Clover , for Fowls . The great desideratum in winter is green food and it is very hard to procure . A good substitute can be had in clover . This • is steeped over night in hot water , and by morning it will be swollen and soft . A decoction will also have been made by steeping the clover in the water , and this is likewise valuable , os . it contains that portion ot the clover most easily extracted . The clover should first be passed through a hay cutter and cut into very short lengths , as short as half an inch , if possible . To take a view of the matter of feeding we may well consider the purposes in view . Eggs , of course , are what we are striving for , and we must feed for them . Corn will not do , as it is too fattening , and hens cannot lay on food rich in carbon but deficient in nitrogen and phosphates . It is an utter impossibility for hens to lay when ted corn and nothing else . True , they do lay on most farms , more or less , on a corn diet , but they pick up food by ...
THE ORCHARD [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
THE ORCHARD Managing Fruit Trees for Profit . The yield of fruit depends more upon tbe management than anything else . The flrst desideratum is a knowledge of the tree and its different parts . A fruit tree has three kinds of . roots , each with its own special function . A tap root going down perpendicularly from the trunk , simply to give a firm support to the tree . This should hot be meddled with . Long roots , corresponding to the branches of the tree , which supply the nutriment for woody growth . These should be pruned to limit and regulate such growth . Flower and fruit feeding roots , which are small and / thickly clustered round the trunk of the tree . These are to be cultivated and nourished that they may supply the fruit-making materials . To restore a fruitless tree to its proper function , prune away surplus wood among the branches , but leave enough for fruit . This may be best done in autumn . In the spring , when the tree is about to blossom , dig a trench about it ...

HOLIDAY TIME [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
HOLIDAY TIME BY HELEN STANNARD . Twilight darkness seemed to fall almost instantly upon the large city , but the lamp lighters hastened on their rounds and soon the cheery gleams shot forth from all the lamps which dotted the streets so thickly . A few flakes of snow were flying softly downward , but they were scarce heeded by the gladsome throng , unless , indeed , they were welcomed as harbingers of a merry sleigh-ride on the morrow . For this was Christmas eve , and in all hearts the joy bells seemed to chime . Bursts of laughter and gay words of greeting rang out upon the air . Rich and poor , young and old , jostled indiscriminately against each other with the greatest good humor . The masses , as if by mutual consent , pressed on until they reached a large establishment ,-fairly aglow with warmth and light . Here , nine o ut of ten sought to enter the already crowded store , and were met by an equally large number , energetically elbowing their way out , and guarding as carefu...

Shadow Buff . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 1 December 1884
Shadow Buff . A large white sheet is flrst hung securely on one side ot the room , and on a table some distance behind a very bright lamp must be placed . All other lights being extinguished , one of the partytakes a seat on a low stool , between the lamp and the sheet , but nearer the latter than the former .
