Yep, that’s what I’m reading right now. It’s fun reading these old magazines and books. It’s surprising how much of the information they presented was scientifically accurate even back then. These things can be a great resource for small farmers, especially natural/organic farmers, because back then they just didn’t have the poisons, chemicals and drugs that have bee developed over the last 100 years.
This issue has articles about the barbed wire business, seed corn, on whether one should or should not dock horses’ tails (not), the evils of strong drink, and a fascinating article about bee keeping. And the advertising is a hoot. Unfortunately almost none of these old magazines and books have kept their illustrations in e-book format.
Where do you get ‘em? Amazon, of course. Get thee hence to the Kindle area of Amazon.com and start running searches. Most of the old agriculture books and magazines that are available are completely free, and if you don’t have a Kindle, you can get the Kindle application for just about every computer/smart phone out there.
