THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

THE SHEAF WE call the attention of our readers , especially those who advertise in agricultural papers , to the certificates regarding the circulation of the FARMERS REVIEW , as presented on page 264 . Calculate that each one thousand papers weigh one hundred pounds and you can readily see the enormous number of papers that we have sent out during the first three months of this year . PHILADELPHIA ^ are mo ving vigorously to induce Congress to act in the oleomargarine business . It seems quite likely that notwithstanding ba nquets and fine speeches by Congressional and New York City farmers , that Uie arguments of the producers of real butter will be heard . All that is wanted is to regulate the sale . The makers of real butter ask for nothing unreasonable . They want nothing more lhan that oleomargarine shall be sold for just what it is , an imitation butter . They know that they have no right to ask its exclusion from the market , but they have the right to demand that it shall be...

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

AGRICULTURAL . SHEEP HUSBANDRY IN THE UNITED STATES . A SLOW BEGINNING . With the settlement of Massachusetts came the sheep of England and Holland , unimproved , coarse-wooled animals , similar to those on which Bokewell based the Leicester development . The Dutch burghers of New York stocked their outlying lands with the rough but thrifty races of the low countries . The first wool growing of Virginia was with the originals of thc since developed mutton breeds of England . Mexico was initiated into wool growing with the coarse and hairy Cuourro race of Spain , the ancestors of tbe present Mexican flocks , which have overflowed into Texas , New Mexico , Colorado and California . The coarse wooled races dominated the wool growing of the colonies for a century and a half . During that time the people had become the nucleus of a nation , yet they numbered but three millions , and the increase of their flocks had been equally slow . Factories were unknown ; each rural household had its...

HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

HORTICULTURAL . CROSSING WITH FOREIGN STOCK . BY PROP . W . J . BEAL . The value or the importance of the best seed is generally much underestimated . In the Scientific Farmer , Dr . Sturtevant speaks of planting two lots of seed corn , which presented an almost identical appearance . Yet , planted on the same fleld , in adjoining plats , the one yielded flftyflve bushels , the other one hundred and ten bushels of shelled com per acre , on the same manuring . Since then he has found that choice seed yielded only three per cent , of poor corn , while corn raised from some poor ears yielded ninety-nine per cent , of defective ears . In 1876 the writer received the first items , in a review of Darwin s Gross and Self-fertilization of Plants , in relation to the heading of this article . I can not write of this part of my subject without introducing something from my reports and experiments , and a review of the book . As long ago as 1837 Dean Herbert said : I am inclined to think thai ...

STARVATION FOR WIREW 0 RMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

STARVATION FOR WIREW 0 RMS . I have never known any crop to grow uninjured , except buckwheat , on land infested with wirewornis . Weeds , and some wild grasses having a hard and tough root like buckwheat will grow , but the more delicate grasses and grain crops are destroyed . The best means of getting rid of the worms is to starve them ; or by sowing two crops of buckwheat . in succession , keeping the land well cultivated during the time the crops do not occupy it , so that the worms can find nothing to feed upon , will starve them , as they can not feed upon the buckwheat root , it being too hard . I have in two instances destroyed the worms by a thorough Summer fallow . A field of some ten acres of flat and mucky land was so full of worms that no crop could be successfully grown . This I desired lo cultivate . The land was plowed late in the Fall , and the following season plowed four or five times at intervals , so that nothing was allowed to grow , since which time , some twe...

ENTOMOLOGICAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL NOTES OF OBSERVATIONS OF INJURIOUS INSECTS , I 879 . The above is the title of a very interesting pamphlet by Miss Eleanor A . Onuerod of Ilesworlh , England , which the editor of the FAUMEUS REVIEW has very kindly placed in our hands . ,. The work in which this lady entomolo gist is engaged , is certainly one to be com mended . Her plan appears to bu as follows : She engages co-workers in different sections of England , Scotland , and lieland to make observations on the species which are most injurious in their respective sections during the season . They , from time to time , report to her ; collating these and combining with her own observations , the result is published at the close of the year in the form mentioned . The work on her part , and on the part of her associates or observers , is gratuitous ; and according to the Entomologists Monthly Magazine , the pamphlet is also for gratuitous distribution , but this is probably a mistake , as the copy now before us...

MONEY AND COMMERCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

MONEY AND COMMERCE . FINANCE , TuasDAT EVBHIKO . April 20 th , 1880 . Dullness has been the most noticeable feature of the Chicago money market during the week under review . There is very little demand for loans from operators in grain , and provisions , and as a rule this class of borrowers are paying up former loans more freely than they are asking for new ones . As a natural result the discount market is easy at 6 @ 8 per cent for commercial loans and 7 @ 8 on real estate security . Exchange on New York sold between bankers at 60 ® 75 cpremium per 91 , 000 . The New York Stock market has been weak and prices lower for nearly all tbe speculative shares . This break in prices was predicted by the BEVIEW some weeks since , and those wbo were foolish enough to risk their money in such speculations deserved to lose lt The speculative demand for all classes of goods has also subsided , the boom so much talked of a short time since has busted and business is again assuming a more healt...

CHAFF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 22 April 1880

CHAFF . HE trod on a plug of scrubbing soap That the girl had left on the topmost stair ; And what to him was love or hope ? And what to him was joy or care ? For his feet flew out like wild , fierce things , And be struck every step with a noise like a drum ; And the girl below , with the scrubbing things , Laughed like a fiend to see him come . I M a rutabaga , and here s where I plant myself , said a tramp , as he entered a farmhouse near Freeport 111 , and seated himself at the table . We aliens bile ours , said the farmer s wife , and soused him with a dishpanful of boiling water . A YOUNG lady just home from boarding school , ou being told by the servant that they had no gooseberries , exclaimed : Why , what has happened to the goose ?
