An "International" Swindle . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 30 January 1886
An International Swindle . MB . EDITOK : DO you know anything of the International Seed Company , of Rochester , N . Y ., or their agents or circulars . They profess to send out packages of 1 , 000 grains of new oats , for which they chargo $ 2 , satisfaction guaranteed . If not satisfied with the crop , they agree to refund the $ 2 , and take the crops at market prices . Next year they say they will not sell the oats , except in single bushel lots , and then only at $ 15 per bushel . J . C . A . Louisville , Ky . ANSWEK : We know nothing about the firm , personally ; have not received their circulars , nor have their agents interviewed us . The whole class of make-you-rich-f or-little-money , steer clear of newspaper men—when they can . The scheme is merely a modification of the Bohemian oat swindle , with which reading men are pretty familiar . Still swindlers keep playing on the string of a harp that has twanged gudgeons successfully , on this presumption , The fools are not all ...

Their fourteen years of convention life has added much of practical value to the literature of the dairy , and the limiting of papers to not over 1 , 000 words insures conciseness of matter contained . —The Illinois Boa...

Farming Without Stock . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 30 January 1886
Farming Without Stock . StocK raising and farming are the same in a certain sense . No farmer can keep stock unless he grows grain and grass , and no farm can be kept to a standard of fertility unless containing stock . Every farmer aims to improve his farm with his stock , and endeavors to secure the great-. est yields possible per acre , using the ¦ latest and most improved methods for that purpose . All farmers are quick in pointing out the mistakes of their neighbors and assisting them to avoid such in future . But in stock raising the conditions seem to be changed . The farmer who spends time and labor to secure a large crop of wheat or corn , resorting to the best seed , and the most available machinery , allows his crops to be wasted by inferior stock . We use the term wasted for the reason that any portion of the food consumed that does not contribute to the production of some other article is wasted . True , it is in the manure , but a waste of time results , as the benefit...

__ Vf _ wSSS __ wSK ^ k mmmmm \\\ mt _^_ Spring Application of Manure . As to whether it is best to apply manure in the spring or fall there is a difference of opinion . We will state that the proper time depends upon the condition of the soil . If it is a heavy loam , underlaid with clay , the manure may be safely hauled to the fields and spread evenly over the surface , as the clay subsoil partially prevents the soluble matter from being leached downwards by tlie rains , though much may be lost if the land is rolling , as the manure may be washed off or blown away by the winds . A safe method is to first plow the field , whether in the spring or fall , and then haul on the manure in light loads ( as the rough land will make difficult hauling ) , spread it evenly , and then work it in with a pulverizer or harrow . This incorporates it with the soil , and prevents loss from winds and rains , and allows the soil , to absorb and retain all the gases and other valuable matter . The pla...

HORTICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 30 January 1886
HORTICULTURE California Emits . The more oommon dried fruits of the „ mmfcrv have become staple products for home use and export from California . Of anme others the Saeramento Bee says : The sWariA olive seem destined to become most &amp; tant products of this State . The fi Xere attains a most luxuriant growth , « d yields enormously , although no thorouehly good variety for drying has come into general cultivation . In time , howler there will doubtless be a great production of first-class dried figs here . The cultivation of the olive is yet in its infancy although it has been demonstrated that California olive oil and pickled olives are of the best character . California Drones surpass in quality those imported , and the production must be greatly increased to take the place of the foreign orunes in the American market . A large trade is growing up in Calif ornia raisins , which are of a superior quality , and there can never be an over-production , of rais ins . What a...

ttiUBDot [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 30 January 1886
ttiUBDot Mavericks . The term Maverick—oattle over one year old , and not following the dam , and unbranded—is said to have originated with Mr . Maverick , of the Texas Senate , who framed a bill which became a law , authorizing any one to brand as his own any animal that was twelvo months old having no brand and not following nor owning a mother , thus stopping tha increase of those unowned animals . These cattle at length became known as Mavericks , from tho originator of the hill , who was a prominent man , andin whose honor a county was named , in the State of Texas .

According to the Breeder s Qazelte , at publio sale last year , there were sold : Short-horns 7 , 057 $ 709 , 865 $ 100 . 09 Herefords 480 140 , 125 304 . 40 Jerseys 1 , 004 312 , 030 194 . 50 Holsteins 854 101 , !

, ^ ^ Jmmm ^ l ^__ * ^ F ____ A _ m ^______ t _______ tmmm \ n ^ av ^^^^ H light on the jfig h Records . Investigation is being made of the high reoords obtained by celebrated cows , and ecienoe is slowly unraveling some of the mysteries surrounding them . In the first nlace doubt is cast upon at least one record as it was proven that under no possibility could the food given produce the amount of butter derived . In other words , the fat was not in the food , but the obstacle was exp lained by allowing that any deficiency of fat can be supplied from that stored in the body of the cow , thus virtually making tallow and butter the same . It is known that but little variation in the Beroentage of solid matter can be made bv feed , and the object sought was an explanation of how the water , casein , sugar , etc can be ohanged into fat , thus allowinsr of the production of a large amount of butter from food deficient in butterforming elements .
