The Popular Science Review, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from The Popular Science Review, Vol. 5: A Quarterly Miscellany of Entertaining and Instructive Articles on Scientific Subjects "What thou owest, O Rome, to the Neroes," says Horace, in one of the most sublime of his Odes, "the River Metaurus and vanquished Hasdrnbal are witnesses-" and he had good reason for saying so, for the victory of Clandius Nero over Hannibal's troops was a decisive one. The tide of conquest was turned- and when the great Carthaginian General saw the decapitated head of his unfortunate brother thrown into his camp, he was compelled to exclaim, "Agnosco fortunam Carthaginis" - "I acknowledge the fate of Carthage." We may borrow the above-named words of the bard of Venusium, and say, "What thou owest, O Agriculturist, to the turnip crops, the whole science of farming, and the cattle, not 'on a thousand hills, ' but in a thousand stalls, bear witness." For what should we do without turnips? What is the main support of our stalled oxen during the winter months? We may certainly use oil-cake and other fattening substances with great advantage- but still we must have our turnips, whose succulent nature is necessary to counteract the too stimulating and heating effects of oil-cake, barley meal, and other such like food. "Without the turnip," a writer in Morton's "Cyclopedia of Agriculture" remarks, "rotations of crops would have been still limited to weedy corn and foul pastures, the production of butcher's meat would have depended on pasturage, and consequently the great mass of the population must still have boon condemned to a farinaceous diet or salted rations in winter. Under such circumstances it is easy to conjecture what must have been the result. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
