Marble Rock Weekly, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1900, Marble Rock, IowaGirdling Grapevine feeding in Winter. Ste Siulung mad cooking coarse for Jim a practice Well. Thu Proee a la said to hasten maturity and improve site Anil of Ura Pei. I the process of girdling grapevines to hasten maturity increase the size and improve the Quality of grapes has Long been extensively practice in the Lake Erie archipelago. The new York i state Experiment station Lias made Many experiments showing varying of suits on different kinds grapes. Oil Empire state both Bunch and Berry were larger and began to Ripen 21 Days earlier than on the unhinged. Other varieties showed Little or no effect. Thin skin Neci kinds like the Avo Den had tendency to crack increased. Delaware seemed to lose Quality. Cut girdling g Grapevine. Tools used by the new Lork state Sta Tion in girdling grapevines and appear Ance of girdled vines. Ting Back new growth on ringed arms gave the fruit better Quality. The effect of ringing somewhat but judiciously practice even the cumulative effects on Strong growing kinds need not be disastrous. Growers have found that the Best re sults Are obtained by doing the work the grapes Are about one third Groven the exact time depending on tie season ant variety. The operation May be performed with a. Knife but where ringing is extensively engaged in a tool designed for the purpose is used. The accompanying figure is explained below the Cut itself. The same station explains the reason of the elects on the fruit As follows the food materials taken in by the roots pass up through the outer layer of Wood to the Green parts of the Plant. Here new material for growth is formed and the portion that is not needed by the leaves and other Green parts passes downward for the most part through the inner bark to be distributed wherever it is needed. The in in Tulp Taro cps of ringing therefore the upward move ment of the solutions is not interfered with but since the downward passage takes place through the inner bark the flow is arrested when it arrives at the Point where he bark has Beer removed. Cons que Etiliya the parts of the Plant that Are above the Point where the ring of bark has been removed receive More than a Normal Supply of food which tends to produce increase in size and earlier ripening of tie fruit.

Oleo us a int ration. We wonder whether the writers who urge the of Loco As a worthy food product have Ever really eaten it for any considerable period. The for ref Velv iwo a for with a cooperative Colony in a Southern state. The native butter was scarce and of miserable Quality our c7airy was in an embryonic state and from motives of Economy it was not deemed practicable to buy Good Northern Butler. So we tried to con tent ourselves with Oleo As a fat ration. Scarcely one individual out of 300 Ever professed to like if. And Many cases of sickness treated by resident physicians seemed to be directly by eating the new yorker. Stomach worm in the stomach worm in lambs is often a cause of serious trouble which occurs in the fall sometimes in septem Ber but More frequently not until later. The worm is about three fourths of an Inch Long scarcely larger than a thread of Cotton. The remedy advised for them at a meeting1 of the Wisconsin sheep growers was to keep the Lamb without food until its stomach was empty then give a mixture of four ounces of raw linseed a Oil and two or three Tablespoon Fuls of benzine or Gas Aline. When this works off it will expel the Worms often in Coni Icera a n by the Way in t this a Good record to establish nobody buys an animal twice of taut an Bonest Man who rift in feeding Cornstalk the Dairy cows show that they relish them much bet Ter than lieu fed dry arid Bard. There is improvement in the actual nourish ing qualities of the stalks by cooking them for the process does not add any thing to them but the fact that the fodder is made More palatable to the animals is sufficient excuse for one try. Byrd Corn stalks Are not really pleasant food to cows and Many will eat them Only when forced to it from hunger. But if the stalks Are taken and Cut up into Small lengths and then cooked or steamed Auu fed to the animals warm they have an odor that is refreshing. Cows will eat the Mush thus made greedily. If one has steam of he farm the fodder stalks can be cooked with he steam much quicker than by any her method. If we add a Little Grain to this cooked Mush the cows will eat far More than when fed any other Way. In feeding the stalks in this Way the Grain food should not be Cut Down As some Are inclined to do for As said be fore nothing is added to the stalks by cooking them. I believe that All Good Dairy cows re Spond quickly to Good feeding and Little in the method of preparing their food. In cold weather they show the effect of warm feeding immediately. It stands to reason that they feel better when they have warm food to Lake into their stomach just As much As u Hkin. Iii Iping Liam in Eliji Way we undoubtedly increase the flow of milk. Anything that freshens the appetite and make the food More palatable is very Apt to affect the milk flow favourably. The work steaming or cooking the fodder acids quite mat really to the Dairyman s labors but if it can be done once or twice a week it will help to improve the Supply. Poultry raisers see to it that their Birds have warm food once a Day through the Winter and it Way be that Dairy men can find in it a lesson for them. They All agree that warm food agrees with the Bens laying eggs and greatly helps in increasing the Supply of this p. Smith in american cultivator. Immune to fevers at treatment employed in South America. Blind folding cows. Canvas Cut and fitted is n far better arrangement Thau heavy Leonrd Breech cattle Are often forced to carry a heavy Board Blinder upon their weight and chafing of this being an unnecessary piece of cruelty managing a Breech cow. Use a bit of Canvas Cut and fitted in the manner shown in the Cut with rings to slip Over the horns and a strap to fasten beneath the jaw. Let the rings slip on the horns far enough so the cloth will not come judo Farmer. Dairy suggestions. It doubtless pays Well to invest in some of the devices which keep the water so that each cow can help her self when she wants it. Milk is nearly All water anyhow. All cattle feel the Pinch of cold in Winter and unless additional feed and Good comfortable quarters Are Given them they will fall off rapidly in condition and will be unprofitable All Winter. Take your stable floors and gutters water tight and use Baor Boisits or conduct the liquid manure to a Cistern in the barnyard where it can be pumped out and sprayed on the Meadow s.

When i finally awoke there was not the slightest Trace of fever. In three Days i was Able to be about and in a week i was fit to tinder take a Long journey " the most wonderful part of the Story however is the sequel. The Pei Man pleased with the Reward Given him offered to inoculate his patient so As to Render him proof against All kinds of Bush fevers no matter How much he might be exposed to them for at least 100 Moons. If lie contracted fever it would be of the Mildest kind. The traveler went to the settlement and was inoculated. The operation consisted of stabbing gently into tie left wrist with a Bunch of exceedingly Cne Needles plucked from a hard spiny Leaf the Needles being first passed through aflame and then i lipped m a Ziack Lulu in. In a Short time All fhe symptoms of malarial fever developed. And then n. Peculiarly nauseous medi Cine was administered and a deep sleep completed the when the patient awoke he Felt perfectly Well except for the smarting of his wrist which had to be bandaged. For a Long time after this he trav eled in some of the worst swamps of Central America undergoing consid Erable exposure including a night spent Imper the Trees after the upset Ting of his boat. Of the four White my in the boat three had fever and two used in 24 hours the third returned to the United states with health completely broken. Afterwards he spent six years about the isthmus of Panama and in that hotbed of fever. Colon never experienced a Day s fever.
