AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

AGRICULTURAL . LAND PLASTER IN WISCONSIN . The farmers of Wisconsin use a great deal of gypsum , or land plaster , as it is most generally termed . In looking over the volume of transactions of the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society for 1878 and 1870 , just at hand , we find the subject of the use of plaster discussed at considerable length at their meetings . Mr . W . H . Morrison , of Elkhorn , said that in an experience of thirty years of farming he has made many experiments with gypsum ; has sown in belts or strips , and the increased growth in the plastered parts has always excited comment . He referred to but one experiment that came under his own observation : Several years ago , about 1864 or 1865 , he had a field of thirty-three acres sown to Spring wheat ; in May one-third of it received two hundred pounds of plaster per acre ; in growth , a perceptible difference could be discerned in favor of the plastered part . A few days previous to harvest , that little marauder , ...

HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

HORTICULTURAL . THE ART OF CROSSING PLANTS-NO 2 BY TOOK . W . J . BEAL . In the examples given in my last article , thc stamens and pistils were in different flowers on different plants or on different partsof the same plant . In the majority of cases , as in the flowers of apples , pears , cherries , plums , peaches , gfapes , raspberries , most strawberries , gooseberries , currants , peas , beans , clover , buckwheat , wheat , rye , oats , barley , onions , cabbages , carrots , potatoes , lettuce , and many others the stamens and pistils arc situated near otner in uie eacn same nower . In many of these cases the pollen is ripe and is discharged on a certain part of the pistil of the same flower , and causes it to set fruit and seeds , but in many other cases the stamens and pistils of a flower are not ready for contact at the same time . These must be cross-fertilized in some way . In many other cases , as in the orchids and milk weeds , the flowers contain stamens and pistils , ...

IN THE GARDEN-NO . 14 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

IN THE GARDEN-NO . 14 . As has alread y been said in these series of garden articles , one of the prime features requisite to success in gardening is , that the soil shall be made rich for the reception of the seeds . They should get a good start by having a generous and nutritive soil to germinate in . After they begin to develop the soil can hardly be kept too rich . Vegetables grown in a poor soil are not only small , but are inferior in every way . They are quite sure to lack flavor , and are generally tough and stringy . On the contrary , when grown in good soil , they are fine in flavor , and tender , and the extra quantity which a good soil always insures , is worth many times more than enough to pay for the expense and trouble of fitting up and furnishing conveniences for the application of manure in a liquid form , throughout the growing season . This is the case if we look at it , in regard to money value alone , and the assertion applies equally as well to their worth for...

ENTOMOLOGICAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL . THE BIRD OUESTION DISPASSIONATELY CONSIDERED . BY PROP . C . V . RILEY . Few persons are more competent to discuss the much mooted question of the usefulness of birds to the farmer and fruitgrower than M . Edouard Perris , of France , both from his recognized ability as a naturalist , and his thorough knowledge of ornithology and entomology , a dual knowledge absolutely necessary to an impartial discussion of the question . His views have recently been set forth at some length in the Bulletin Mensuel de la Societe dAcclimatation , and are now being freely translated by Prof . 8 . A . Forbes , of Illinois , for the American Entomologist ; and while Prof . Forbes does not thereby commit himself to M . Perris views , he recognizes the value of the latter s method ot inquiry , and few , if any in this country , are better prepared , by virtue of original investigations in the same field , to pass judgment . For myself , while believing that M . Perris sometimes underrate...

THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

THE POULTRY YARD . POULTRY PRODUCTIVE FRANCE . Mr . Prosper Guyot , in his Correspondence Agrieole , quotes from the Bulletin of the Agricultural Society of Caen , an interesting estimate of the gross product of poultry culture in France , of which we give a summarized translation for the benefit of our readers . The French are generally recognized as experts in the matter of all small industries , and as poultry breeders particularly they stand at the very head . The following figures afford the very best illustration of the ability with which a so-called small industry has been developed into a source of national wealth and a commercial interest of no small magnitude . Says the Bulletin : It is known that about 40 , 000 , 000 hens are maintained in France . Of these 40 , 000 , 000 about onefifth , or 8 , 000 , 000 , are disposed of for food , resulting in a product of 20 , 000 , 000 of francs ( $ 4 , 000 , 000 ) . Five million roosters attain each year the same destination , makin...

THE INCUBATOR . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

THE INCUBATOR . The poultry correspondent of the Agricultural Gazette ( London ) , having written to that paper that the artificial incubator is an infernal machine , and another that no practical men used them , the editor concluded to test a Christy incubator for himself . He reports in the Gazette of March 8 : The result now before us is 72 per cent . of fertile eggs hatched , and , now that the first few days of the young lives is over , we have only lost one of the number . A hen set at the same time brought out only 50 per cent ., and a second hen is daily eating one of her eggs , and thus diminishing future pleasures of her maternity . We may add that while we have lost one of our orphan birds , the hen first mentioned has lost one of her little one s , so that the incubator scores at present decidedly in comparison to the natural means . Hens are certainly kittle cattle to deal with , for while one eats her eggs , another clumsily breaks them , and a third leaves them to bec...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS—NO . 10 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS—NO . 10 EFFECT OP SIRE OK SUBSEQUENT OFFSPRING . Well attested instances are on record of young animals showing peculiarities which have belonged , not to any ancestor , but to male animals by which the dams had been impregnated at some former time ; in other words , it is certain that an animal sometimes resembles , not its own parents , but the sire of older offspring of the same dam by another sire . Thus a mare , after giving birth to a mule , has dropped a horse colt with some striking resemblances to the mule ; well bred hornless cows , after producing a calf sired by a shorthorn bull , have produced others with short-horn characteristics , although they were sired by bulls of a hornless breed . The cases in which there is a clearly marked resemblance to the sire in a former impregnation are rare with our farm animals . The writer has never seen a case in which he has found it necessary to be lieve this had occurred . Hence the matter is not one of very d...

HOG DISEASE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

HOG DISEASE For the last three years , thousands of hogs have died throughout the West with a disease some dummy has concluded to call cholera . It is no more like cholera than the itch is like the small pox . The disease commences in the upper end of the wind pipe , which causes a slight cough ; as it works down the cough becomes worse , often water running from the eyes . When the disease gets upon the lungs the hog dies , although many have it slightly that get well . In a measure I think it is contagious . Where one or two in a drove of hogs have it and die , more are apt to contract it . You may say it is similar to the scarlet fever in the human family . If one child in a family of half a dozen children has the fever , it is seldom all the others escape . When a farmer has a drove of hogs , and he sees one that has the appearance of hav . ing the disease , the best way is to shoot him and bury him out ot sight . Some farmers say the feeding of coal , sulphur , salt and ashes ,...

VETERINARY . QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY : LAME HORSE . —J . A . H , Lawrenceville , Pa ., writes . He says : Accepting your offer to answer all questions on the diseases of horses , I take the present opportunity to consult you . About five weeks ago one of my horses was taken lame in qpe of his ankles . I drove him about five miles , and then put him in a stable . When I took him out of the stable he was lame , and continued to go lame all the way home . The lameness is in one of the hind ankle joints . He has been lame ever since , and at times he could not put his foot to the ground . I have tried several kinds of strong liniments , but they do not appear to have any effect . His ankle is very hot , and much swollen . I should like to have you give the cause , and also a proper remedy , as he is not fit for work as he is . ANSWER : It is a common practice , but , nevertheless , a very imprudent one , to apply liniments to a recent injury . The majority of the liniments offered f...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 1 April 1880

THE DAIRY . MIXING MILK . A writer in the Rural New Yorker combats the theory lately broached by a New England man that mixing the milk from different breeds of cows lessened the quantity of butter made from the cream . He doubts the genuineness of the experiments quoted as the basis of the theory . He says he has made a considerable number of experiments to test this very matter , and has uniformly found that when large-globuled milk is mixed with small-globuled mil k , the rising of the cream of the latter is accelerated , and also made more perfect . Experiments in the churn have also shown that , when 1 arge-globuled cream was mixed with small-globuled cream , the butter came more quickly and more perfectly than with small-globuled milk alone . In each case , by microscopic tests , there were less cream globules left in the skim-milk and in the butter-milk than were found in the skimmilk and butter-milk of the same smallglobuled milk when set and churned separately , under like ...
