AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . II . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . II . PEDIGREE . By the pedigree of an animal , we mean a record or register of its ancestors . No pedigree can give a complete list of ancestors . Togo only ten generations back , such a list would require the enumeration of 1022 animals . Different standards have been fixed for different classes of animals ; sometimes rival records of the same breed will have different standards . It is only in comparatively recent times that much Importance has been attached to detailed pedigrees . Even now there is much diversity of opinion concerning their , value . Extravagant statements for and against their value are often made . As is usually the case , the truth lies in the middle ground . No pedigree should be accepted as conclusive evidence of the value of the animal to which it belongs ; no animal can be safely selected for breeding purposes unless something is known of its ancestry . It may be possible to give a long and correct pedigree of an animal of cro...

"SCRUB" CATTLE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

SCRUB CATTLE . A visit to the Union Stock Yards of Chicago , at this season of the year , will be very apt to convince the observing visitor that the farmers of our country , who raise the greater portion of the stock , advance very slowly in a knowledge of what is to their own interest—the growing of a better class of cattle . And it is a wonder why this is so . The agricultural population of no other country is so well , or so cheaply supplied through the means of the public press with information that tends to impress upon the mind of the reader the importance of improvement in breeding , in order to better their financial condition and elevate the moral standard of humanity . It has been written that the merciful man will be kind to his beasts , therefore it will be necessary to first improve the mind of the man , and through him reach the lower animals . But year after year , week after week , day after day , tho many publishers of agricultural papers and stock journals have se...

VETERINARY . QUERIES AND ANSWERS . ANOMALIES IN GESTATION . QUERY : A . J . T ., Naperville , 111 ., writes as follows : The last of February I had a sow that appeared to be lame in her hips , or small of the back . She walked with difficulty , and the next day she had to be helped up . The third day from the time I first discovered she was ailing , she lost six pigs ; they were about one-third grown . I then concluded she would come out all right . On the second day from the time she lost her pigs , she had one full-grown live p ig . I called my hired man to see the pig ; as it could not get up alone I had it killed . I now gave her up , and concluded she would die on the following day . Next morning I went to see how she prospered , and found to my surprise that she had six full-grown pigs , but they were all dead . The next day she had two more full-grown dead pigs . In four days from that time she died . During all the time of her sickness she ate nothing , but would drink freel...

THE BALANCE OF TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

THE BALANCE OF TRADE The New York foreign trade in January and February amounted to $ 81 , 062 , 538 of imports and $ 50 , 742 , 655 of exports . As compared with the correspond , ing months of 1879 , the imports increased $ 28 , 436 , 005 , and the exports decreased $ 2 , 002 , 861 . The balance of trade seems , in short , to have turned against the United States . But while this is quite true with respect to New York says American Correspondence , it does not fortunately apply to the whole country , although there has been some falling off of the national prosperity . The invariably f $ ?» r » te fi gures furnished by Mr , Jf jmmo , Chief of the Bureau of Statistics , show an excess of exports over imports of merchandise in February , 1879 , of $ 29 , 655 , 318 , and in February , 1880 , of $ 4 , 297 , 810 . The excess of exports over imports for the twelve months ending February 28 th , 1879 , was $ 293 , 762 , 167 , and although it had diminished , it was still $ 212 , 298 , 963...

DID YOU WORK ON A FARM WHEN A BOY ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 8 April 1880

DID YOU WORK ON A FARM WHEN A BOY ? A reverend gentleman of Massachusetts , Mr . Washington Gladden , not long ago addressed two questions to one hundred oi the most prominent and successful business men of Springfield , in that State . These questions were : 1 . Did you spend the first fifteen years of your life on a farm , in a village , or in a city ? 2 . Did you work with your hands when not in school ? Eighty-eight of the one hundred responded to the interrogatories . There were only five of the number that had nothing to do during the first fifteen years of their lives but to amuse themselves and learn their lessons at school . A very large majority of the remaining ei ghty-three were born upon a farm and their early days were spent as are those of the great bulk of farm boys of to-day . They went to school all that they could be spared , devoting the time before school to the morning and after school at night in feeding the live stock of the farm , milking , getting iu the wo...
