Wool Growers and Wool Manufacturers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 16 May 1868
Wool Growers and Wool Manufacturers . We are glad that the Northwestern Sheep Breeders Association has taken the com-mon-sense course of appointing delegates to the Exposition in August next , and that a number of its members have expressed the determination to be present aud exhibit specimens of the wool produced by their flocks . This is no concession to any claims of the buyers or manufacturers to impose arbitrary rules for buying wool . All who spoke or voted on the question recognized the injustice of any rule requiring a uniform shrinkage on all fleeces of a class , and that the just course was to buy each lot on Its merits—while the difficulty of arriving at a correct result in all cases was admitted . What this action did mean was a recognition of the Importance to Western wool growing of Western wool manufactories , and the importance of having a harmony of views between the two great interests , which harmony can much better be secured by coming together and having free di...

Peck ' s Patent Milk-Cooler . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 16 May 1868
Peck s Patent Milk-Cooler . Last week the type made us say that , among the advantages claimed for Peck s milk-cooler ,- it allowed the moving of the milk , and it made one fourth more better than ay the ordinary process . What we wrote was that it allowed the massingof the milk—allowed it to be put in large vessels , instead of small pans , and that it was claimed that by using it one fourth more butter could be made during the hot weather than by the ordinary process . We believe this cooler is well worth the attention of dairymen . Particulars concerning it may be had by addressing GHABUBSPECK , P .

northwestern Sheep Fair . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 16 May 1868
northwestern Sheep Fair . The shepherds ot Northern Illinois have not been fortunate in the times they have selected for their Sheep Fairs and Public Shearings . Three years of the four in which they have held these meetings , the weather has been most unfavorable . But the leading men in the Northwestern Sheep Breeders Association are men of energy and enthusiasm in their calling , and so the Fourth Annual Fair at Belvidere , III ., May 5-7 , was not a failure , although the rains had made tbe roads so bad as to prevent many intended exhibitors from bringing their sheep , and although there was , until the afternoon of the last day Of the Fair , no tlme when sheep could be shorn with either comfort or safety . With all these disadvantages there was a fine show of Merinos—sdifle most excellent specimens , and the pride with which the sheep men looked at , handled , aiirf talk ^ ed about sheep was entirely excusable . Among the flocks represented were those of J . W . Knapp , J . 8 ....

The general character of the soil is a £ ark , rich loam , and produces In abundance all the grams common to the Northwest .
