ILLINOIS ASSOCIATION OF DO -MESTIC SCIENCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1899
ILLINOIS ASSOCIATION OF DOMESTIC SCIENCE . An Open Letter . To the Secretaries of Farmers Institutes : _ .,. _ , The institute season Is near at hand and with it comes the business of considering how we may add to the proflts and the happiness of rural life . The women of the farm are equally interested with the men in all that belongs to farm affairs , for are not their lives spent on the same farms with the husbands , sons and brothers ? Domestic Science is a very general term used to cover all that pertains to the house and its immediate surroundings—the home of the family . To keep this home is distinctly the work of woman , as is the business of supporting it that of man . The affairs of the field and the barn are conducted with the object of gain ; for what ? In the last analysis it is to provide for the family ; to make a home .

SCORE OF YEARS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1899
SCORE OF YEARS . Mr . John L . Thomas , of Pendleton , Ind ., writes : For perhaps 20 years we have held monthly a County Horticultural meeting . It has really been a general meeting , as all topics that interest farmers and their wives were at different times embraced in our program . Within the past year another society like it has been organized , as it was found too difficult to cover all the county as desired . I doubt our ability to carry on a township institute in each township for nine or ten months each year in all our townships . But the subject should be of general interest and I intend to suggest that the proposition be put on our program at our Horticultural ana Farmers Meeting . PRESIDENT CHAPPELL . This office has been favored with the Premium List of the 22 d annual exhibition of the Kearney County Fair , to be held at Minden , Nebraska , Sept . 20 , 21 , 22 and 23 , 1899 . • Mr . M . W .

BREED GOOD STOCK AND ADVERTISE . Mr . C . A . Stannard , of Emporia , Kan ., whose cash sales of Hereford Cattle and Berkshire swine the past year amounted to over eighty thousand dollars , writes The Farm Home as follows : The prospects in Kansas this year are so bright I cannot help smiling as I look forward to the bountiful crop , now almost assured . Our wheat was rather a light crop , but that does not affect the Kansas farmer so much as it used to , for he is past the period when he sowed the greater part of his land in wheat , or for that matter , in any one crop . Oats were good , millet , cane , kaffl r corn , alfalfa and all grasses never were better , and corn , —well , it looks now as though Kansas could supply the world with corn . The prospect was never better than now , and our early corn is made , and will yield from 50 to 100 bushels per acre . What a prospect for the breeder of good hogs , and especially for the breeder of Berkshires , for there has been a shortage...
