The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

The Week VOL ; XIII . NO . 1 . Steady cold weather has been experienced during the past week over a large portion of the country . West of the Mississippi the snow fall has been heavy and extended as far south as Texas . Over large sections of the winter wheat districts of Illinois , Indiana and Ohio , reports indicate a discouraging lack of snow , and that the dry conditions which prevailed when the seed was sown , followed by freezing weather , with light covering of snow , has made the outlook for a crop anything but promising . In Nebraska and Kansas the prospects are excellent , and reports received from some sections of Indiana and Michigan are favorable to excellent crops . Matters on Change are in a disturbed condition and one difficult to comprehend by the uninitiated . The big Armour-Leiter deal , referred to in these columns lust week , has developed strong partisanship , and bullsand-bearsare pitted against each other in a lifeJ a ^ S ^^^ u Slruggle , in which many of th...

Go Slow and Sure [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Go Slow and Sure The more the reports from the experiment stations concerning the sugar beet are studied , the more certain it seems that the future of the American farmer in this direction is a bright one . The report from South Dakota , which appears in this issue is gratifying in the extreme : So long have we looked to more southerly climes for our sugar that it is difficult to believe that the Northwest may yet become the center of large sugar production . Ohio , Illinois , Indiana and Iowa make excellent showing of the quality and strength of beets grown in these states , and it would seem that , if the raw material is all that is required , the beet sugar industry in the United States already is assured of success . But we must remember that there are many other things to be considered , and while these are in no way discouraging , they should make us careful not to advance too fast . The matter of the cultivation of the beet itself is something of utmost importance , and this...

Colonizing Farm Lands [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Colonizing Farm Lands The American Cultivator says that a new proposition to colonize the farms of New England is now proposed , and it is said has made some progress towards its purposes . It starts out with a capital of $ 500 , 000 , and with John Wanamaker , the Philadelphia and New York millionaire merchant , as one of Its backers . An option has been obtained on 10 , 000 acres of land , located in five New England states . This is to be divided up into small farms of twenty to fifty acres . Any person of good character can lease one of these farms , with the option of buying it , on paying a yearly installment on it . Those who are not experienced in farming are to receive instruction from practical men , whom the organizers of the scheme will provide for this purpose . This is but one of many schemes now on foot to open up unused lands on the one hand and afford employment and a home to the workless and homeless . The Salvation army has a large scheme of the same sort , though...

John Smith's Idea [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

John Smiths Idea Glancing through a copy of a little book recently sent us by the publisher , a book which has quite a large reading in rural circles , we discovered what seems to us an error fatal to the cause of real reform . The book is President John Smith . In making the speech which in turn made him president , John Smith is made to suggest by the author the following plank in the national platform : The right of a citizen of the United States to demand and obtain work at wages sufficient to support himself and family shall never be abridged . It shall be the duty of the government to guarantee employment to all who demand it . The author is strangely confused . Mixing up individual rights with the duties of government in such a connection cannot be otherwise than misleading to the average reader . Smith s idea is the same as that of the man who insists that the world owes him a living . It is demoralizing , debasing , making the individual the mere creature of the state ; for...

The Beef Steer [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

The Beef Steer ( , , \ ft . Coburn , secretary of the Kansas state board oi agriculture , is doing Kansas more good than any other one man in the state . Without any wish to flatter Mr . Coburn we do not hesitate to say that he is one of the ideal secretaries of agriculture—one of the few this country boasts of . His latest quarterly report is entitled The Beef Steer and His Sister , to which is added crop and live stock statistics for the current year . We have noticed the former reports and the latest is equal in every way to the others . It is a volume of 282 pages full of useful information concerning beef raising . It gives the methods of good feeders , analysis of feed stuffs , cuts and dagrams illustrating the text , and is altogether a complete treatise on the subject of beef production . This report would make a valuable addition to the library of every cattle feeder and can no doubt be procured from Secretary Coburn at the cost price . We would like to suggest that a price...

Shut Out the Frauds [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Shut Out the Frauds Secretary Wilson is asking of congress that he be given authority and the money required for the employment of a number of microscopists in the inspection of butter , fruit and other farm products intended for export . At the present moment there is increasing demand for American butter in the markets of Europe , but there is danger that this demand may be affected by the consignment by some unprincipled maker of oleomargarine or process butter of a lot of stuff that will cause suspicion to fall upon all American products . This has been done in the past , and Mr . Wilson hopes to avoid a repetition of the disastrous experience . Already there are mutterings against American oranges as a consequence of the introduction of the San Jose scale into German orchards through the exportation of California oranges . The scale is propagated in many ways , and it is highly important that we protect not only our own , but the orchards of foreign buyers of our fruits from it...

Leave Politics Out [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Leave Politics Out Charles W . Dabney , lately of the agricultural department , writing in the Southern States Farm Magazine , has the following suggestive thought , which all may read with profit : The road that passes your gate , the school your children go to , the church you attend on Sunday , your village and its every interest , require your earnest and conscientious attention and support . Why should politics influence you in deciding who shall survey the road or select the teacher or keep order in the village ? And yet , eight times out of ten , the party convention or boss will decide your vote even in the selection of a school director . For your own home interests you want the best , most efficient and most faithful person in each place . But for the sake of helping to maintain an organization which aims to elect a congressman once every two years ,- or a governor once in four , you will sacrifice interests that affect the prosperity , comfort and intellectual and moral a...

I MARKETING THE CROP 1 % ¦ ¦ % [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

I MARKETING THE CROP 1 % ¦ ¦ % « —~ w ONE of the most important things for the farmer to know is how to market his products . In order to learn this he should go to the man who stands between him and the consumer , and find what the market wants in the way of fruits and vegetables and what size and style of package is the most in favor . All these things were brought out in a paper read by C . G . Bodman , a local grocer , at the late meeting of the Horticultural Societyof Northern Illinois , at DeKalb . After referring to the fact that commission houses in the cities usually take the cream of the profits when fruits and vegetables are shipped away from home , and that producers were powerless to get redress on account of the distance they would have to go to get into personal communication with the commission man , he proceeded to give his ideas on developing the home market as follows : To avoid , then , the abuses of the commission house the producer and merchant must come into p...

Pleased With the Plan [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Pleased With the Plan Aaron Jones , master of the National grange , in a note to the editor of The Farmers Voice , says : I have carefully examined the plan of your contemplated tours through Europe . I am pleased with the plan and think it could not be improved upon except the tour might be extended . Friends and acquaintances and those congenial could thus have a social time and . the information gained would be better digested than if traveling alone and besides , the cost will be materially less . I certainly wish you great success in the enterprise and that many , very many farmers may be so situated as to avail themselves of the education and benefits of such a tour . I understand each party will be out from Chicago forty-five days . Personally I would like a little more time , but perhaps for most cases forty-five days would be long enough . Yours truly , Aaron Jones . South Bend . Ind . Editor J . G . Kingsbury of the Indiana Farmer was a welcome visitor at the Farmers Voice...

Agriculture . Do Not Mix [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Agriculture . Do Not Mix Flowers , evergreens , fruit trees and small fruits all should have a place on the farm , but this place should not be in the vegetable garden . In the dooryard : or lawn or in a flower garden to itself- a full supply of flowers can be grown . They heautify the home and add-much to the pleasure of farm life . Evergreens , shrubs and shade trees are almost a necessity in making the farmhouse attractive if they are grown in their proper place . Every farm should grow a good supply of small fruits , but they should be grown tn places by themselves . Planted in long rows , nearly or quite all of the cultivation necessary can be given with the team . and cultivator . But the vegetable garden should be confined strictly to the purpose for which it is intended and should have no trees , shrubs , vines or flowers growing in it . Along one side or across one end there can be an asparagus bed , a row of rhubarb plants , some horseradish and some sage plants . The rest...

Garden and Orchard More About Small Fruits [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 1 January 1898

Garden and Orchard More About Small Fruits To the Editor : I find in The Farmers Voice for December 18 an article entitled Small Fruits on the Farm . As I have been in the fruit business for many years and tried a great many varieties of small fruits , I think I can give the gentleman who wrote it some light , and like the Gospel , free . He says the Older raspberry trails on the ground and hinders cultivation . Let him plant the Nimeha . The canes of this bush are strong and upright ; it is a good bearer of large fruit and hardy . Let him throw away the Snyder blackberry , for they are no good , and plant first the Early King , second the Erie , third Wilson , Jr ., fourth the Taylor Prolific , fifth Minewiska and sixth the Ancient Britian—this last I got fronrCanada , and it is ironclad , a good strong grower , clean and fine foliage , good fair berries of good quality and it ripens long after all other varieties are gone . The entire list is composed of hardy , good bearers of ff...

Live Stock and Dairy E . Davenport , Director of the Illinois Experiment Station , and Professor of Animal Husbandry and Dean of the Agricultural College of the University of Illinois , Urbana , has become a regular editorial contributor to this department . AU questions relating to Animal Husbandry , save those belonging to the Veterinary depart- « cnt win be answered by Prof . Davenport . ¦ Best Method of Handling Dairy Cows The following paper was read by Henry Peck of South Ottawa at the recent La Salle County Farmers Institute : The importance the dairy interest is assuming at the present time , the establishing of creameries in nearly every village , and the large capital invested , makes it necessary that every one engaged in the production of milk should know the best and most profitable way to handle cows . When I say profitable , I mean the most milk at the least expense . The first and most important requisite is a suitable stable for the cows . And right here I desire to...
