i AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

i AGRICULTURAL . THE REHABILITATION OF THE SOUTH AND SOUTHERN AGRICULTURE . All new countries which have been settled , inhabited , and cultivated for a longer or shorter time , sooner or later arrive at a crisis in their agricultural development , this crisis usually being reached when the exhausted state of the soil compels the abandonment of the extensive and the adoption of the intensive system of farming . So long as there are new lands to be cleared and cultivated , and so long as the soil retains enough of its original elements of fertility to produce good crops , just so long can the extensive system of farming , which consists in taking every thing from the soil and returning nothing , be continued , to the profit of the farmer or planter . But the extensive system is just as natural to new countries und a virgin soil , as the intensive to countries long cultivated , because where there is nothing to do but crop the land , the area of cultivation can be almost indefinitely ...

H ORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

H ORTICULTURAL . WHAT SHALL BE OUR GUIDE IN CROSSING PLANTS 7-N 0 4 . BY PROP . W . J . BEAL . Every person who experiments In crossing plants should . have his ideal standard of perfection . He should know ^ what he wants , then try to get it . , In crossing two varieties , he will select the parents with reference to combining the good qualities possessed by both . A marked-defect ought not to be possessed , by both parents . Some have thought they derived advan tage in the neyr : • varieties by having the flowers and frultproduced by scions grafted on to some desirable stocks . Mjmy of ourJjronwnent varieties have be . es ?; derived from chance ; seedlings . Year after year people are raising these in great numbers . We are confident much better results , and a much larger proportion of desirable seedlings are insured by making judicious crosses . Even crossing , at best , is a game of chance , to some extent . It is easy to make some improvement in some direction , but to produc...

THE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

THE APIARY . SALICYLIC ACID FOR FOUL BROOD . Having determined to add salicylic acid in a diluted form to the sirup with which I am feeding my bees , I collected the various recipes and placed them in the hands ot my friend and colleague , Mr . J . E . Legg , who has charge of our chemical laboratory , requesting him to prepare the salicylic solution . Finding considerable discrepancies between the amounts of the acid recommended by its various friends , he has been good enough to draw up a paper with details , and I venture to forward it to you for publication . E . Bartrum , King Edward Vl . s School , Berkhampstead , Herts . The preparation recommended by Herr Hilbert , the German bee-keeper , is a 10 per cent , solution ol the acid in pure spirits . He tells us to add one drop of this solution to a grain ol water and use the mixture . A preparation suggested as an improvement on this by Mr . Muth consists of a solution containing rather less than 2 per cent , acid and 2 per cent...

MONEY AND COMMERCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

MONEY AND COMMERCE . FINANCE , TUBSDAT EVKMINQ . April 13 th . 1880 . The money market is dull , and if there is any change from last week it is in the way of a falling off in demand from borrowers , and easier rates . Choice paper is taken at 6 @ 7 per cent , when large amounts are wanted , and ordinary business paper in good credit pays 8 per cent . Loans on real estate are made at 6 @ 8 on city property , and 7 @ 8 per cent , on improved farms in this and adjoining States . The demand , however , for farm loans is light . A gentleman largely engaged in lending money on farms , states that he never saw a time when the application for farm loans were so small as at present . The applica | ions for renewals on loans maturing are also very light . This speaks well for the farmers of the Northwest , as it shows that they are rapidly getting on a solid financial basis .

AMERICA WINS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

AMERICA WINS . The London Agricultural Gazette reproduces from the National Live Stock Journal of this city , the rate of growth of cattle exhibited at our late Fat Stock Show , and remarks : If these figures be accurate , and we have no grounds for doubting their accuracy , the returns for feeding obtained in America are higher than hitherto registered in England . In a carefully prepared table of the weights of the cattle shown at Islington ( which was reprinted in our Supplement of January 12 ) , the highest rate of increase shown was 2 . 24 lb . per day for 802 days , by Mr . D . A . Green s Shorthorn steer . The return of 2 . 38 lb . per day for 1 , 300 days for No . 27 , in the list given above , is far in advance of Mr . Green s , because the rate of increase per day perceptibly lessens when the days have reached a number of four figures . The highest return for any such cattle in the English list was Mr . D . Pugh s Short-horn steer , which registered 2 . 03 lb . per day for...

PREPARATION OF WOOL FOR THE MARKET . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

PREPARATION OF WOOL FOR THE MARKET . Clean wool and well bred wool brings the best prices . Wool free from dirt , such as sand , soil , dung and sweat-balls , gum , grease , burs , free from hard or bleached ends , is always salable at full market prices , and to reliable people . It should not be tied up too tight in fleece , should not be enveloped in several yards of heavy jute or hemp twine . It should be packed tightly in the bale or bag , but loosely in the fleece . A careful shearer ( and none others should be employed ) , will keep the fleece together . A careful roller will see that not a fibre goes in the fleece but what belongs to it . If a box roller is used , see that it leaves the fleece open and light and attractive ; a fleece of wool may be pressed so tightly as to be rejected by even a good judge of wool as a heavy fleece . There is a medium in all this . Not too loose as to appear taggy , not too tight to appear soggy . In a word , be honest in handling your wool ....

QUERIES AND ANSWERS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY , HOLLOW HORN IN CATTLE—W . K ., a subscriber asks , Is there such a disease as hollow horn in cattle ? If not , why does it cure them to bore their horns ? ANSWER . —It requires no very strong argument to convince the majority of our farmers that hollow horn is a very prevalent disease among cattle , no more so than it does to persuade some of our horsemen that bots arc the origin of all diseases of the digestive organs in the horse ; wolf leeth the chief cause of all diseases of the eyes , and many other equally ridiculous notions , too numerous and absurd to occupy thc attention of our readers . These false doctrines have been handed down from one generation to another , and in this way have acquired such a hold on the minds of the people that they are really more to be pitied than blamed for their ignorance , and we can assure the readers of ihe FARMERS REVIEW that henceforth it will not be our fault if they are nnt rightly informed on all topics of i...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-No . 12 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS .-No . 12 . IMPORTATION AS TEST OF VALUE . An imported animal is one , properly speaking , which has been brought from a foreign country . The word is sometimes improperly applied to animals brought from another State or distant part of the country . There is almost as great differrnce of opinion in regard to the increase or decrease of value in an animal which lias been imported as there is in regard to I lie value of pedigrees . With some breeders tlie fact that an animal has been brought from Europe is taken as conclusive evidence of its superiority to almost any home bred animal ; others look with disfavor ou any recently imported stock ; giving the preference to native stock . In a strict sense , we have no native American breeds of farm animals . The white discoverers of America found neither horses , cattle , sheep nor pigs . Tlie so-called wild horses or cattle of either North or South America have descended from domesticated animals brought to America ...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 15 April 1880

THE DAIRY . SETTING MILK . It seems now to be admitted by all scientists in dairy management that the sooner we can cool the milk the quicker will the process of creaming commence , and by keeping it at a low temperature the more perfect will it be . I would advise , therefore , that until the deep-setting system is adopted , which I forsee it will be at a not very distant period , the milk should be cooled as soon as it is drawn from the cow , and before it is set for creaming . This process is more rapidly and more efficiently done by passing it over a milk refrigerator , when that can be had ; but where that is not in use it can be cooled very fairly by the process adopted in Holland , viz .: by putting it in tin or brass vessels to stand for a short time in a cistern in cold water . If the shallow system be followed , I am disposed to recommend tin pans pressed out of a solid piece and not jointed , as being about the most generally useful . Glazed earthenware is used , but unle...
