Page 30 - ... varying series of crops; the capacity of new plants or trees for acclimation; the analysis of soils and water; the chemical composition of manures, natural or artificial, with experiments designed to test their comparative effects on crops of different kinds; the adaptation and value of grasses and forage plants; the composition and digestibility of the different kinds of food for domestic animals; the scientific and economic questions involved in the production of butter and cheese; and such...
Page 8 - The mixture should be constantly stirred and more water added as needed to form a thick paste at first and then gradually a thin paste. The lime will supply enough heat to boil the mixture several minutes. As soon as it is well slaked water should be added to cool the mixture and prevent further cooking. It is then ready to be strained into the spray tank, diluted, and applied.

Page 126 - Ammoniacal Solution of Copper Carbonate Copper carbonate, 6 ounces. Ammonia, about 3 pints. Water, 50 gallons. Dissolve the copper carbonate in the ammonia and add the water. Caution: Use no more ammonia than is required to dissolve the copper carbonate. Ammonia is variable in strength, and the amount required must be tested in practice. 4. Soda Bordeaux Mixture Copper sulfate, 4 pounds. Commercial Caustic Soda, Soda lye, (Sodium hydroxid) slightly in excess so that mixture is alkaline ...
Page 126 - Water to make 50 gallons. Dissolve the copper sulfate in about two gallons of hot water, contained in a wooden vessel, by stirring, or even better by suspending the sulfate, contained in a cheese cloth sack, in a large bucketful of cold water. With the cold water and cheese cloth bag a longer time is required. Pour the sulfate solution into the barrel or tank used for spraying, and fill one-third to one-half full of water. Slake the lime by addition of a small quantity of water, and when slaked cover...
Page 16 - So the animals we experimented on were affected by the living bacilli of human tuberculosis exactly as they would have been by dead ones ; they were absolutely insusceptible to them. The result was utterly different, however, when the same experiment was made on cattle free from tuberculosis with tubercle bacilli that came from the lungs of an animal suffering from bovine tuberculosis.
Page 80 - DIVERSIFIED FARMING IN OKLAHOMA. Ten years of experience in a new and untried section of country. such as was Oklahoma so short a time ago, has developed and indicated to a great extent its possibilities. The peculiarities of soil and climate are, in a measure, known and understood by those who till the soil, sow the seed, and reap the harvest. Perhaps the greatest single feature that is most fully recognized is the unusual number and variety of products that may be grown and matured. The farmers...
Page 84 - Elaine, and Noble counties, but almost every county has a small acreage. The extent of the crop in the counties named is due to the fact that it has been grown there for a longer time than elsewhere, and probably not because of any special climatic or soil conditions. This crop could be extended with profit to other sections of the Territory. The average yield is 15 to 18 bushels per acre, the crop selling at ll per bushel.
Page 127 - Dissolve one-half pound hard soap in one gallon of water (preferably soft water) and while still boiling hot, remove from the fire and add two gallons of kerosene. Stir the mixture violently by driving it through a force pump back into the vessel until it becomes a creamy mass that will not separate. This requires usually from five to ten minutes. The emulsion is then ready to be diluted with water and applied. For the common scale insects and hard bodied insects, like the chinch bug, use one part...
