NORTHERN TRIBUNE, JUNE 12, 1884.
'Injudicious Changes. -.yarmcrs aro often accused of heinfr rery slow in introducing improvements. Possibly they aro not as quick as manu facturers and merchnnls aro to adopt Jie:v methods and practices. In ,tho matter of breeds of animals and fowls and varieties of fruit and iield crops however, they generally show a desire to keep uf with tho prevailing fashions, Thi& disposition L shown in their eager ness to obtain netv greeds of animals and fowls. The fashion in cattle changoa almost as often as that in bonnets. The changes in either case aro not always for tho better. This is shown by the fact that fashion, liko history, repeats itself. Dcvons have been tho fashion able cattlo in this country several times and it is altogether likely that they will bo again. The first attempt to make IIoreford3 fashionable was a failure, but the last gives promise of being a great success. Every few years there is a general change of opinion in regard to tho most desirable color for hogs. White, black and spotted hogs, each by turn, have "their day.' At present there is a revival of interest in rod hogs. Ayr shire, Jersey, Guernsey and Dutch cows are in turn preferred by dairymen. In another decado Swiss cows may bo pre ferred to any of them. In point of tact the superiority of one breed of dairy or beef cattle over another is not so great 9s to bo generally acknowledged. Tho choico largely depends on fancy or tho peculiar surroundings of the individual farmer. The like iJj true of breeds of hogs and sheep. A farmer is very suc cessful with ono breed for a time and prefers it to any other. His neighbors notice his success and procure the same kind of 6tock. For several years, per haps, all are satisfied with their animab. After a time, however, there is a great , excitement in favor of somo Cresd never kopt in tho neighborhood. Spwimens aro exhibited at tho county fair, and they attract great attention. They are noticod at length in tho local papers and stock journals. The milk record or tho gain in weight is pub lished and circulated. bomo enter prising farmer invests in several of these animals, paying, of course, a "fancy price" for them. Being dearly bought they have tho best feed and at tention. Twice as much is, expended in taking care of them as of an equal number of cattlo of another breed. Tho cows give a largo amount of very rich milk, and tho steers lay on flesh and fat at a surprising rato. Tho breed becomes popular, not on account of its intrinsic excellence, but in consequence of the superior care, shelter and feed yiven tho animals. It remains popular while this system of tending, housing and feeding is continued. When tho li'naa comes that the animals aro no bet ter kept than those of tho breed that has been discarded they aro found to bo no more valuable in any respect. If no enterprising brcodcr starts a "boom" in favor of another breed tho chances are that there will bo a disposition to replace tho ono that was discarded. The change in any event was a costly one. Animals, liko other things, are costly when they are scarce. Consider able risk always attends the introduc tion of a new breed of animals. They must bo acclimated and mado ac customed to their new surroundings. A change of food and water not unfro quently causes sickness or general de bility. Before any farmer resolves to change tho breed of cattle, sheep or hogs ire is keeping ho would do well to count tho cost and endeavor to ascer tain from intelligent and entirely disin terested parties thecomparativo merits of tho kind oHmimals ho is thinking of substituting for those ho now has. Tho disposition to chango varieties of fruit frequently pro-vents persons from realizing any profit from tho orchard, vineyard or plantation of berries. Many non-professional fruit-growers allow themselves to bo imposed upon by ped dlers and tho agents-of nurseries. They are earried away "with tho colored illus trations of fruit seen in magazines and the descriptions given in catalogues. They neglect tho standard-varietics they have in tho vain hope of finding some thing better. They lvcarof the 'wonder ful success somo persons have had with a variety of apple, pear,' cherry, grape, ?lum or berry, and send for a supply. Iioy might have learned, had they taken tho pains, that-thc variety of fruit was only successful inL-a few localities having a very different -soil and climate from thoso of tho pbico whero it was proposed to introduce . It. They might al&d have learned thab'the variety had never been, thoroughly . tested in any locality, and that prominent and relia ble horticulturists liad not decided on its merits. Tho persons who derive tho most profit from any kind of fruit-growing cultivato but very few varieties. They select them aftcrthe mostdillgent inquiry and tho most careful .experi ments. When they have found varieties that aro hardy andprodnctijfo they stick to them. They take new varieties only on trial. They never discard tho old tjll they aro cntiroly -certain that' they' have found something-better. Some-of the largest orcliards iirthc West-contain not moro than four orfivo varieties of apples. Somo of tho small orchards con tain almost a3 many varieties as there are trees. Tho varieties of any kind of fruit that aro Tory profitable in any lo rality aro generally few. Having detcr ro'nedwhat they aro, it -4 tho wisest coarso to plant tnem extensively, and.to make few changes. Chicago Times. ' To bake beets wash them perfectly clean; put in a pan with a littlo watcy, and bake until they aro tender; the time varies with 1 he size of the beet, an hour beirg small enough allow ance for a beet of medium size. When they ftro done removi the skin and serve in tho panic way that you do boiled beet. V. x. 'J'imt.n MEAT JJAVIXO purchased tho ' Jones Meat Market, next to C. A. Gal lagher's (hoccry, .
