AOH ICU LTUPAT. DEPARTMENT.
The Field, Farm and Garden. We solicit articles for this department. The name of the writer should accompany the letter or article, not necessarily for pub lication, but as an evidence of good faith. Stock Feeding. Mr. Waldo F. Drown, a noted stockman, has for sevora! years made a study of stock feeding and is convinced that one of the greatest wastes of the farm comes from ig norance or carelessness in that matter. When the farmer goes to market with his grain he is careful to find out the current price and tries to get the top of the market, and if ho should drive to the grain dealer with a load of corn and sell it to him for •20c. a bushel when the established price was 40c. he would be thought a fit candidate for the lunatic asylum, yet practically this is done by a large per cent, of farmers who feed stock. This failure to get the most be can from his grain varies with different farmers in degree and cause, and it may be profitable for us to ask, how? 1. There is a large aggregate loss of food from feeding grain to ill-bred stock, or to stock unsuited to the purpose for which it is kept. The dairyman who has made no test of his in dividual cows will be fortunate when he tests each cow separately if he does not find one or two cows out of each twelve whose milk is so poor that he is keeping theta at a loss, the milk and butter product actually failing to pay for the food, while in the same herd there are other cows giving a handsome profit. A dairyman of my ac quaintance, milking twelve cows, on foot ing up the amount of butter made from his herd at the end of the year found they had averaged but 145 pounds each. He then began a systematic testing and weeding out of the poor cows and a bet ter system of feeding and gradually increased the yield of his herd until in nine years he had an aver age of 276 pounds per cow or nearly double what he started with. It has been demon strated a thousand times over that a grade of short-horn steer, sired by a thoroughbred will come into market a year earlier than a native, or will at three years old weigh from 2 to 400 more and command a half cent or a cent more than the native and will pay from 33 to 50 per cent, more for the food consumed. In the raising of horses there is a still greater difference. The scrub horse of no particular breed costs just as much to raise as a grade Norman, Shire, Clyde or Cleveland bay, and the scrub will lie slow sale, at half the price at which the grades will sell and the latter will be in mar ket one year sooner. The only difference in the cost of raising one of these and the common scrub is the service fee for the sire. There is uo money in raising a scrub colt but the raising of good grades always from thoroughbred sires is largely profitable. Some of the leading horse breeders agree on one point, which is that the mare and foal both are better off and more likely to do well if the mare is worked regularly every day up to foaling time, and this testimony agrees with my own experience. A second way in which farmers fail to get the full value of food is by failing to feed enough. Before a cow can use any of her food to make milk or fat she must eat enough to supply the waste of the system. To be sure many cows are only fed enough for this purpose and still give milk, but the milk is produced at the expense of the animal; first she parts with her fat and then her muscle, and she grows thin and poor, be cause you do not give her food enough. This food used to repair the waste of the system is called “the food of support,” and if a growing animal is so sti.ted as to not have enough food for this purpose it is per manently stinted in its growth so that there is a loss in all food given it afterward. A cow is in one sense a machine to make milk and butter, and up to the limit of her ca pacity she can consume profitably the food given her. If, however, she is fedsparingly she will first use the food necessary for her support and give a return in milk for the remainder. Often a farmer is keeping three cows to produce ten pounds of butter a week when the same amount of food fed to two would give twelve or fourteen pounds a week; in other words, the food used to supply the waste of the system of the third cow was lost, but when fed to the other two it gave a profit. Saving Manure. The New Orleans Picayune published some weeks since a statement made by a re spectable Northern farmer w hose word was not questioned by any who knew him, that with 30 head of cattle, soiled and fed so that all of their manure was saved, he saved in five months manure which, including a large quantity of ashes and muck, was es timated at 600 tons. A sample analyzed by a chemist showed that its commercial value, according to the potash, acid phosphate and ammonia it contained, was about $2,600. The ashes and muck cost in money and la bor about S6OO, leaving a credit of $2,000 to the cows. This was tho accumulation of five months. A year’s accumulation would have been more than twice as much. For est leaves may be collected in place of muck and used in the compost heap all over the pine regions of the South, and often plenty of muck besides may be obtained. Six hundred tons of manure like thnt de scribed above would enrich 30 acres of land so completely that it would produce large yields of forage or other crops that would feed 30 head of cattle twelve months and produce valuable crops besides. Peter Hen derson got 90 tons of pearl millet (cat-tail millet# from one acre completely fertilized. He estimated that it made 15 tons of dry forage. Six hogsheads of sugar and its drainings of molasses have been made on one acre of Louisiana soil, not three miles from New Orleans. The cane out for the mill weighed about 00 tons, besides thp tops and side leaves. By applying the 000 tons of compost made by the 30 cows on 30 acres of land that the previous year hail produced two crops of w’bip-poor-will peas, both crops plowed in, the land would tlieij be well supplied with ammonia and humus. Such land, deeply plowed andsubsoiled, ought to produce more than 100 bushels of corn, or 75 bushels of oats, or two bales of cotton t-o the acre. On such land a large crop of Irish pota toes may be taken off in June, and fodder, j corn or sorghum may follow the potatoes I for soiling crops, and full crops may be made for soiling purposes or for dry forage to be fed in the winter. The early soiling crops that are cut off and fed to cattle lx fore June and July may bo followed by a crop of sweet potatoes and these fed chiefly to milch cows. Nothing secures better milk ora larger flow; or they may be used for stall feeding beeves in winter, intended for winter or spring market, when fat beef is scarce. Turnips nmy be sown in August and Sep tember on land from which the soiling crops have been removed and. these foil to cattle the fail and winter. Rust of the Orange. A writer in the Florida Agriculturist, in a letter from Leesburg, ill that State, in speaking of rust on oranges, says of ail orange growers with whom he has talked be has found scarce one whom he could con vince that it was an insect that caused the rust; sonh of them think that by proper cultivation and fertilizer they can overcome it. “They might as well try to drive Heas from a dog by giving him an extra hone as to try to drive rust from their groves with extra fertilizing. No, sir; there is nothing but an external application will do it. There was one gentleman whoso whole crop last year (some 4,000 boxes) was made unshippa ble bv the rust mite." This year, continues the writer, this same gentleman has no crop at all, I suppose for the reason that the rust mite has so devastated his trees, as 1 hold that the rust mite injures his trees (none bearing) almost as much as the scale in sect. In my town I did not find a single grove that was not swarming with rust. Groves that never had it before (unless a box or so) this year have not a single tree free from it. I estimated that there would he not less than 20,000 boxes of rusty fruit, that was bright last year, and that this means a dollar a box less —$20,000; and os I am quite certain my figures are within the mark, is it not of vital interest that this enemy of ours should be banished or kept in check! but when the grove owners are so bent in their belief that it is not an insect, what is to be done! One would think with papers liko the Agricul turist, as thick as hail in the country, that all would he well posted. There are two gentlemen I met with that are taken ds au thority oil all matters appertaining to orange growing; one of these I found a little doubt ful about its being ar. insect. The other gentleman I have not interviewed yet but I am trying to do so, for if 1 can get one of them into the belief that it is really an in sect, and lie gives it out as such, the rust will have to go; but until then I am doubt ful in some quarters. I have given you a low estimate when I say that there are in the groves I visited 25,000 more boxes of rusty oranges this year than any previous year, which means, as I have stated. $20,000. Well, now, what would have l>een about the cost of keeping the rust from this 20,000 boxes! This is rather a hard matter to settle the actual cost, for the reason that the material used is the best of all fertilizers, and oue would have to calculate the differ ence between taking your fertilizer round in a cart or wagon and spreading it with a shovel and squirting it on the trees with a pump, and as I did not give mathematics much study when I was at school I will leave that for some of your readers to settle. As I have made up my mind that the rust can, if not banished altogether, be kept so much in check that its injury will bo mini mized and at a cost so small as not to be mentioned when one thinks of the loss the rust mite is causing, I feel certain in my mind that unless the matter is taken in hand next summer, next year’s crop will boas black as tar and not worth shipping. Be lieving this is the apology I make for trou bling you for space in your much esteemed paper. Grass Is King. The Live Stock Journal says; It is stated that artificial meadows in England rent at S2O per acre and rarely less than $lO. This class of land rents for more than the culti vated lauds. In Holland, where the popu lation is very dense, the highest priced lands are those in grass. In this country—notably the dairy districts of New York and the blue grass region of Kentucky—those land? well set in choice grasses are the highest priced and the most profitable. Grass is king—not because it pays the best profit of any general crop, for the labor and expense employed in Europe, in this country and in all portions of the world where there is a. high degree of civilization existing, but because this crop is more gen eral and more abundant than any other and enters more largely than any other into the support and maintenance of lioth man and beast and of fowls. It is Nature’s chief, best gift to man in the way of an agricul tural crop. Few, indeed, are the lands that grass of some kind does not grow upon spontaneously. It covers the waste places and makes them beautiful. It is the surest and the greatest of all agencies for the maintenance and recuperation of soil fer tility. It is Nature’s own restorer. It grows in the day and in the night, week days and Sundays. * The farmer who devotes the major portion of his land and his attention to the grass crop, combined with stock raising, is the one most apt to succeed. Tile most successful and inde pendent farmers, as a rule, are those who grow grass as their chief crop and raise stock enough to consume it on the farm. The highest priced agricultural lauds we have are in sections of country where this system is adopted; here we find more intel ligeuce among the rural population and more evidences of substantial thrift on the l'anns and in the farm houses. Here we find the highest degree of wealth, refinement and culture among the agricultural class. Grass is king. Preserving Posts. Experiments conducted at the lowa Ag ricultural College, with a view to ascer taining the relative value of tar, crude petroleum ami the two combined as pre servatives when applied to fence posts, make it appear that tar is valuable for all woods. Petroleum alone seems to have lit tle or no effect. Tar applied alone made a lHitter showing than where the posts were tarred after being painted with petroleum. Posts painted first and then tarred did not absorb the tar. When uni ainted posts were immersed in boiling tar it was observed that the tar had penetrated the wood one-eighth or one-quarter of an inch, thus forming a coat that could not scale. Petroleum did no good when applied alone and harm when preceding the use of tar. Tarring is esti mated to cost two cents per post. The ex pense attending the use of tar appends to prove that the cost of application is greater tliau the profit where the application is to liaxswood ami willow. What the profit will prove to be in the case of cellar and oak posts time enough has not yet elapsed to in dicate. ' _______ Household. Lemon Jelly.—A good way to prepare lemon jolly in this climate is after the usual method of working the gelatine; do not al low it to harden, Put beat it well with a strong egg heater, then mold it. If you can place it upon ire all the better, hut it will keep shape when beaten in this way without tile ice. Plum Pudding.—To six ounces of stoned raisins add six ounces of finely chopped suet, six ounce * of washed currants, a half pound of neeloil and chopped apples, four ounces of moist sugar, three ounces of grated bread crumbs, thrre ounces of flour, a half ounce of mixed spices, three ounces of chopped peel and six eggs, wjth oue-half THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 1888. pint of milk. Bent the eggs and spices well together, mix in the milk by degrees, then add the other ingredients, working all to a smooth paste. Dip a cioth in boiling water, put it on a sieve. Hour it and tie tlie pud ding up well and boil ten hours. \V lien wanted for use plunge again in boiling water and boil three hours. Serve with any kind of pudding sauce desired. How to C’ook Turkey.—After the fowl has been well singed and freed from pin feathers, it should bo thoroughly drawn by opening one side just below the breastbone; lie sure to take out everything ami then wash several times, wipe dry, then plunge into boiling water and afterwards into cold water —ice water preferred; this will give a plump appearance; now cut the neck off close to tlie body, leaving the skin so as to draw it over and tie; also tie the legs close to the side, having cut off the first joint; fasten down the wings with fine skewers. Take the liver, gizzard, heart, neck, etc., and boil in a quart or more of water until done so as to be used in the dressing. If the turkey is old it should lie boiled some half hour or more lief ore roasting. For roasting a bird weighing ten pounds allow two-and-a-quarter bourse Baste with salt and water, then cover with lumps of butter and afterward baste with drippings. The dressing: Take three pints of bread or cracker crumbs, chop the livor, gizzard, etc., fine with a lump of butter and a little salt pork, moisten with the water in which they have been boiled, add butter, salt, pep per and powdered sago in a small quantity. Fill tlie body anil breast as full as possible and sew up. Rich mashed potatoes also make a good stuffing, also chopped oysters are an addition. Should there lie more than necessary to fill tlie fowl it can be placed at one side when the fowl is half done and cooked for future use. Farm and Stock Notes. Chopping a hole in the ice to allow the cows to drink is simply a method of chilling them, thereby causing a shrinkage in the yield of milk. Warming the water is easier and much cheaper in tlie end. Two thousand five hundred dollars worth of onions, lettuce, cabbage, spinach and celery were raised from three acres of land last summer by E. P. Marion, of Woburn, Mass. Two riien and a boy managed the work. A Colorado beekeeper who lives where alfalfa is extensively grown for forage says the bees will not work on it when other bloom can be visited. He is convinced that alfalfa as a honey plant is greatly overesti mated. It would be better to kill a few of the young pigs at birth than to compel the sow to suckle too many, as lack of milk and cold and cause the weaker ones to die. Large litters are at no time desirable, and espe cially in winter. t In certain parts of Europe the belief is prevalent that dusting the trees witli lime, ashes or road dust tends to fruitfulness. In the orchards of the Volga, where the fruit rarely falls, the southeast winds are loaded to suffocation with the dust of the desert. The first calf, says a contemporary, makes or mare the cow, "and from the first preg nancy, when the mammary glands begin to develop, up to t'no “coming in” is the most important period of a cow’s life. What is gained then may be held and added to; what is lost can hardly be recovered. To economize hay an excellent authority sugg sts: “Two pounds of a mixture of middlings, bran, ground oats and corn, of equal parts, added to twenty-four pounds *f straw or corn fodder, will give more growth than twenty-five pounds of the best timothy and costs about half as much.” With trees set a considerable distance apart, as we find them in the apple orchard, the land may be seeded without much in jury to the trees if a small circle be kept open and cultivated about the tree. This will be no great task and will save the or chard and keep it in good, thrifty, growing condition. The farmer should remember that if he can plow at any time during the winter he will gain so much time for spring work. Ground that will lie exposed to frost may be plowed wet, dry or in any other condi tion, ns the expansion and contraction of heat and cold will prevent its clogging. The frost is the best pulverizer known The Jersey Bulletin says there is nothing more useful than new-process linseed meal in correcting deficient rations for cows. Being about as rich in albuminoids as in carbo-hydrates, it will make up the deficient albuminoids of corn meal, corn fodder, poor hay, etc. It also has a laxative tendency, thus often preventing fevers as well as pro moting the secretion of milk. Experiments made to discover how much blitter can be made from a pound of milk show a great variety of results. It has been found that the quantity of milk re quired to produce a pound of butt -r ile peuds on so many greatly varying circum stances that no definite quantity can he fixed upon. Even the same cow’s milk va ries in quantity, as well as quantity, from one day to another. As illustrating the difference between the time consumed in tillage where the rows are long or short, Secretary Bonliam, of the Ohio State Board of Agriculture, gives an instance of a field of corn in which the rows were 110 rods long, the piece being about one-third as wide. The cultivation, covering about 25 acres, required three days lor the long way and four-and-a-half days for the cross cultivation. Oil, says the American Agriculturist, is fatal to every insect it touches, and sul phur is very offensive to them. A mixture of four ounces of lard and one of sulphur, well rubbed together, and with the addition of one ounce of kerosene oil and one dram of creosote, will be found an excellent rem edy against all sorts of insect vermin, while the liberal use of kerosene oil on poultry roosts will free the fowls of their torment ors. If pork has ever soured or spoiled in a barrel it would not be safe to use the barrel for pork again, no matter how thoroughly it might be cleansed. The cost of anew barrel warranted to preserve the pork is much less than the value of the meat which it will hold. It is true, the fault may not originally be in tlie barrel, but rather in the mode of management; yet having once spoiled a lot of pork the barrel had better thereafter be left to other uses. The bones of a well-bred, well-fed bog are said to present only about one-twentieth part of his gross weight. An animal of this nature must necessarily carry a great deal of fat, but the importance of making it well muscled to keep it from complete degeneracy is self-evident to any thoughtful person; hence, inasmuch as the natural tendency of the hog is to fat, feeders should make it a point to counteract the evil by using the most nutritious food to the ex clusion of fat forming food. Popular Science. Anew safety catch has been devised for an elevator which will stop the platform automatically ns it arrives at the next, floor above or below.' This device will lie very handy In shops where u great deal of single floor traffic is constantly being done, as it will not necessitate the presence of a man in the elevator as in the case of sliding doors, and it will also dispense with care ful watching when an open elevator well is used. Malaria is being successfully treated in the medical stations of the Punjaub with i picrate of ammonia. The usual dose is from one-eighth of a grain to one and a-lmif grain four or five times a day in a pill. Half a grain is a fair average dose. Thus given the remit is soon visible. In the great majority of the cases treated one-half grain doses in the interval prevented tlie recurrence of the next attack of tlie fever, i while in about 20 per cent, of the patient-: '• two or three attacks followed liefore the fever censed. In only one case of quartan ague, despite large doses of the salt, the fever recurred for six periods, gradually diminishing in Intensity and then yielding i to it. It is equally successful in ail the forms of ague, but it is a curious fact that the cases in which it failed to cure were ail el' the tertian variety, I CHEAP ADVERTISING. ONE CENT A WORD.
