Why Crow Clover ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Why Crow Clover ? . The year 1888 opens up to Wallaces very great number Eto ^ rjliSi ^ rrlth a of n ^ wa ubecribers who may or may not be familiar with much that we bave written on the subject of clover growling , and hence we shall be obliged in future numbers to repeat mncb tbat has been said over and over in tbe past years until it has become part of the common stock of agricultural knowledge and perfectly familiar to our old readers and to the best of farmers generally . .. XI The provdnce * of * the * agricultural paper is to deal with the whys of things rather than -the hows ; to outline correct theories and methods rather than tell bow this or that thing should be done . The farmer underatands the details of farm work , as a rule , better than any editor can teach him . No matter how well he may understand the how , be must work at croaa-purposes with himself unless he ui-id « wta * Kl 8 first the why . • e * &lt; We put -tbe question thus sharply to every reader : W...

Starting New Papers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Starting New Papers . Periodically there comes a disposition , we might almost call It a craze , in states and counties to establish new papers , poHticatt and agricul-l-ural . There is supsJsed to be a long felt want , and some person is ready and anxious to supply it provided somebody will furnish blm with the bard cash . The result Is , in due time a large per cent of corpses lying around waiting for some one to bury them . No one fears the competition resulting from ventures of this kind so little as publishers of large experience and well established newspaper properties . They know from experience bow difficult it is to place a newspaper on a paying basis . They understand that no one man can do this ; that it requires a combination of editorial , business , and advertising ability which Is entirely beyond the reach of any one man s abilities , magnificent or transcendant as they may seem to be , and they know also that in ten attempts to establish a paper there are likely to ...
Grain Rent Pro and Con . - [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Grain Rent Pro and Con . - As -stated in a previous article , we * believe , all things considered , that renting for a share of the grain and other crops that are easily . divisible * and can be stored is the fairest and best method for both the landlord and the tenant . If tbe tenant is industrious and the land in good heart , it • will pay a good rent for the land , taking one year with another . The difficulty lies , however , in conducting the * farm on tbis principle so that the randlord will bave the assurance of getting his share If the tenant is disposed to be dishonest he has the landlord entirely at his mercy . He may , if he is so minded , bold a check on the tenant by taking counsel of the thrasher and of the man who buys grain at the station , but If the tenant has a mind to cheat he can do lt in one way or another and defy detection . There have been In times past a great number of exceedingly dishonest tenants who thought It no sin but rather a virtue to get the bett...

The Iniquities of the Pooling BUI . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
The Iniquities of the Pooling BUI . PBBPABATIONS FOB THK BHPBAI , OF THE AMTI-POOI-XISG CLAUSE OF THE LNTER-BTAT * COMMERCE LAW . Ever since the enactment of the interstate commerce taw by Congress in 1887 , there has been a united and determined effort to render it null , void , and of no effect . The public naturally assumed tbat Congress in its enactment used terms , the meaning of wblch could not be misunderstood . The friends of the bill are now discovering that by one decision after another the courts bave shown them that they slid not say what they meant to say , but something else , until at present there Is little left of the law except the clause prohibiting pooling . It is now proposed to get rid of this clause by Congressional enactment . Wben tbis is done , possibly this winter , possibly not until after the next Congressional elections , the people will find * tbeniselves just where they were in 1886 , wben a political cyclone in the Eighth Congresional District of Iow...
Notice to Subscribers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Notice to Subscribers . It Is the custom of Wallaces Farmer to send out notice to all subscribers whose subscript-ions are about to expire requesting their renewals . It not infrequently happens that renewals of subscriptions come in after tbe notice is addressed and mailed , and consequently the subscriber Is annoyed by receiving the notice after he has sent in his money . We ask our subscribers , therefore , who receive . these notices after tbey have been renewed , to wtaiFt for a week and examine the • date on the tag which bears their name . If they have been credited on the lag It -ta suffi &lt;* ient evidence that the money has been received . If they are not credited a postal card stating wben ( the money was sent will enable us to cctn-ect the error promptly . Every precaution is taken to avoid errors , the names sent In being -checked over twice carefully . Nevertheless , errors will sometimes creep in , and we will be obliged to our readers if they will call our a...

Holderman , of Orient , Iowa ; writes us that we have made a mis- ; print In his communication in a recent issue on curing meats .

The Report on the Snoddy Remedy . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
The Report on the Snoddy Remedy . In our Issue of last week we gave our readers a bare , but exact , statement of the facts brought to Hght by the tests of the -Snoddy bog cholera remedy made during tbe last three months under the direct observation of Wallaces armer , and also the report of Mr . Roberts , of Baton , Iowa , as to its effects in Ms noted Duroc-Jersey herd . Dr . McClanahan , V . S ., of Redding , Iowa , furnished us with a statement of the effects In some herds under his prefessltmal care which show rather better results than tbe test at Des Moines . In this report Wallaces Farmer vouches only for the correctness of the facts stated under its own observa-UsM * . The standing of the other parties render it unrneeessary for us to vouch for tbem . Dack of spare In our last issue prevented any comment on the report For tbis reason , we refer to it now . It will be seen from the report that the remedy Is not a sure cure , and it is but fair to say it is not claimed to be ...
Oats as a Hay Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Oats as a Hay Crop . Mr . J . B . Wing , of Champaign county , Ohio , writes as follows : Noting what you say ln a recent Issue of your paper regarding the use of oata as a nurse crop for clover will you not try cutting the oats for hay esoma -time ? I do -tbat ; . it te tbe only way -rvt-tb ns that -we can aecure a stand of clover at all wltb oats . We sow no wheat at all , only oats , clover , corn , with some rape as a catch-crop in corn . The rape is thus far the only food of our ewes except a little dry corn fodder mornings . I do not allow them to run on it all the time , but turn them ln on hour or so twice a day . When it warms up again the rape will be ruined , the last freeze having been too cold for it . We believe in many sections of the state , and especially in years when the oats grow rank , it wiH pay the farmer to cut his oats as above suggested . It will certainly be a great advantage to the clover stand , and where a farmer has dairy cows or young cattle , we beli...
Wide Seeders . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Wide Seeders . A reader of Wallaces Farmer asks who manufactures seeders fourteen feet wide . Makers of these goods should advertise them . ¦ - - — a , ¦ Mr . J . D . Bennett , of Pottawattamie county , Iowa , wishes to know the best method of exterminating elder bushes We know of no speedy way except grubbing them out and keeping them grubbed out It is possible tbat cutting them off and grazing them with sheep , or better still , Angora goata , would get rid of the pest This little picture reminds us that the advantages resulting from dehorning cattle are BO many and so far-reaching ln their good effects that the day lu likely to come when the cow with horns will be something of a curiosity . This is not an unreasonable view of the matter , for the horn is a needless appendage under present conditions and must go . It is simply remarkable how the removal of the horn changes the satire nature of an animal , malting the sullen and vicious , tender and tractable ln disposition . It ma...

Hybrids of Wheat and Rye . At the Agrie - # tu * ral ExptwrWom in Hamburg , last summer , some giant heads produced toy cross-f ertiliaation of wheat and rye a * tras ? ted great attention . The Deutsdhe laii ^ wlrtscbaift , ilcbe Presse bas published an ia ** count of tbis bybrid which bore very large heads and heavy grains , the latter being capable of germinaiting .

Whether this new kind of rye-wheat will be of any importance to practical farming , is yet to be determined .
