Over a century later, this publication is delightful. Such topics as "Does Wheat Turn to Cheese," "Feeding Squashes Milk," and "Are House Plants Injurious to Health?" show how far we have come in agrarian sciences in a relatively short time.
For Example:
"No popular error has been more generally held in this country than that wheat will turn to cheese. No other subject has, during the last fifty years, been more actively discussed in the agricultural press. There are signs, however, that interest in the question is dying out, which probably means that the better educated farmers have ceased to believe in the transmutation theory."
Acquired solely because of author's last name, via E-Bay.
