The Conservation of Natural Resources

Description: This bulletin about the conservation of natural resources was originally an address delivered by the forester Gifford Pinchot to the National Geographic Society, in Washington D. C. on January 31, 1908. The address advocates for greater efforts at conservation by providing a broad overview of the state of America's natural resources with regard to forests, minerals, oil, natural gas, and soil. The failure to plan responsibly and regulate industry has led to the monopolistic practices which currently endanger the United States' natural resources. The state of the country's national resources calls for increased conservation.

Cowpeas

Description: "The cowpea is the most valuable legume for the Southern States and its use would be much more extensive were it not for the relatively high price of the seed, most of which is still picked by hand. Particular attention is therefore given to the matter of harvesting seed by machinery now in very successful use in several communities. These methods are so far perfected that the cowpea seed crop should receive much greater attention in favorable localities." -- p. 5. This bulletin also discusses the use of cowpeas for hay, seed mixtures of cowpeas and other crops, the nutritional value of cowpeas in animal feeds, growing practices, and the several different varieties of cowpea.

Deer Farming in the United States

Description: "As a result of the growing scarcity of game animals in this country, the supply of venison is wholly inadequate to the demand, and the time seems opportune for developing the industry of deer farming, which may be made profitable alike to the State and the individuals engaged therein. The raising of venison for market is as legitimate a business as the growing of beef and mutton, and State laws, when prohibitory, as many of them are, should be so modified as to encourage the industry. Furthermore, deer and elk may be raised to advantage in forests and on rough, brushy ground unfitted for either agriculture or stock raising, thus utilizing for profit much land that is now waste. An added advantage is that the business is well adapted to landowners of small means." -- p. 4
