A Word with Strangers . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

A Word with Strangers . THE old reliable Western Rural , henceforth to be known as the National Rural and Family Magazine , is one of the oldest and best known land marks in agricultural journalism . It is now in its fifty-sixth volume , and throughout its career has been a recognized standard authority on all matters relating to the farm . With the change of name made to more fitly indicate its scope and the field of its circulation , many improvements have been added , again setting the pace for its many competitors . A copy of this issue has been sent to a select list of the names of intelligent farmers who from neighborhood repute we believe will appreciate a live farm and family paper . To them we will say that our motto is The bust is none too good . and shall endeavor to give in its weekly spread of good things the best that i . s to be had . On another page will be found a brief outline of the good tilings coming . WE INVITE YOUR SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE MAGNIFICENT OFFER OF...

* - * - *• Trend of Prices . . By James VV . Wilson . Our index table of the index prices of 20 staple farm products ( see market page ) shows a slight decline for the week , the total average being 7 . 119 for this week as against 7 . 370 for last week , and 5 . 759 for the corresponding week of last year . The average for October is 7 . 5 S 0 , and for October , 1897 , 0 . 830 , showing a gain of . 744 , or about 10 per cent for the year . Sauerbeck s index numbers of 47 articles on the London market , Bradstreets 107 articles , and the Philadelphia American s index averages of 100 articles all show a corresponding increase in the prices of staples for tho year . In view of the fact that the volume of food staples is undoubtedly greater than ever before in the history of the country and the world s supply of breadstuffs is much larger than last year , and no apparent diminution in the meat and other food supplies , a large increase in the cotton crop and a small increase in the wo...

The Value and Usefulness of Trees . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

The Value and Usefulness of Trees . ( Extract from a paper by George J . Foster , secretary Phoenix Nursery Company , Bloomington , 111 ., read at a meeting of Central , Illinois Horticulturists . ) The North American forests and groves were once its pride and glory . Did not our fathers squander many of these in wanton wastefulness and are we not doing the . same thing , sacrificing the God-given groves of our own state , and for what ? That with which the market is already over , supplied ; a few more acres of corn or a few more bushels of bats . Then we stand amazed and astonished at the frequent drouths , flooded creeks , high water in the rivers , and the deadly cyclone that sweejps • across the land . The wealth of a country is largely derived from its fertile lands ; their fertility depends very largely upon atmospheric changes and conditions ; our trees , more than any other one thing , help to maintain these conditions in their normal and proper relations . Therefore , it b...

Autumn Work in the Garden . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

Autumn Work in the Garden . By Ina King . A few days work in the garden now will most likely make all the difference between an early garden and a late one next summer As a general thing the garden is left to grow up in weeds after the supply of summer vegetables stops ; the bean vines and sticks are left standing , and the garden is throughout the winter a most desolate looking place . . It does cot take much work to get the garden in good shape In the fall , and it may save time that is worth more in the spring Take up bean poles , tomato stakes or anything else that may be used again next year and store them away to keep dry . It will take less time than getting new ones next spring . Remove everything that cannot be plowed under , and if the garden needs manure , spread it on now . and break it up deep . Get the ground in good fix and then throw it up in ridges three or four feet wide and a foot high , and in the spring , when you would otherwise be waiting for the garden to get...

Hired Webster for a Week [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

Hired Webster for a Week Of course Webster was in demand by those who could afford to pay for his services . A sharp Nantucket man is said to have got the better of the great defender of the C & nstitution in an amusing way , however . He had a small case which was to be tried at Nantucket one week in June , and he posted to Webster s office in great haste . It was a contest with a neighbor over a matter of considerable local interest , and his pride as a litigant was . at stake . He told Webster the particulars , and asked what he should charge to conduct the case . • Why , said Webster , you cant afford to hire me . I should have to stay down there the whole week , aud my fee would be more than the whole case is worth . I couldnt go down there for less than one thousand dollars . I could try every case on the docket as well as one , and it wouldnt cost any more , for one case would take my time for the entire week , anyway . All right , Mr . Webster , quickly responded...

... Advantages of a Dry Climate . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

... Advantages of a Dry Climate . By J . M . Rice . We often complain of the dry climate in the further west . It has its disadvantages , but it has many advantages that we many times overlook . It is a healthful climate . In our own local neighborhood , with a family on every quarter section and six years of settlement , with . a radius of six miles for our jemetery , there has yet heen but ten buried there . Grain or hay needs but little care in their putting up , shocks frequently standing a month before being stacked . Sorghum hay stands all winter in the shock and corn fodder in the field comes out in the spring without rot or mold . Feeding of stock is done almost exclusively on the ground all winter and with but very few days when there is any waste , and stock , if only given a windbreak , seldom need to be under roof . Of course it goes without question that the roads are good , and this means much in hauling loads whether on or off the farm , and not least , old shoes keep...

A Far West Exposition . By Chas . H . Read . To the Editor : With the close of the Portland , Oregon , Industrial Exposition Saturday night , October 29 , an important epoch was finished in the Pacific northwest . Your correspondent congratulates the residents of Portland , and the entire northwest , ion the success of this exposition , for the reason it was singular in effect in that portion bf the Union . Aside from the amusements provided , which -were admirable and clean , it was a fine exposition of the growth of the surrounding country in manufactured articles and in indicating a limitless possibility for the northwest . It was demonstrated that Oregon is not the hyperborean region it has been supposed , but a state of extraordinary wealth and replete with great natural resources . ! In spite of the- neglect of the orchards in Oregon there was ah exceptionally fine display of fruit . Over one display was displayed , the significant words , Ye shall know them by their fruits . ...

• m i » Beefiner the Old Cow . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

• m i » Beefiner the Old Cow . By Prof . E . Davenport . S there are many kinds of old cow the manner of her disposal depends entirelj upon the conditions under which shehas appeared . Old cows are a necessity in the great breeding herds of the country , whether kept for beef or for dairy purposes . They are also a natural and inevitable product of dairy farming , and they exist m numbers in the common stock of the country kept for no particular purpose . They are - a natural product , because wherever cows are kept they willgrow old and their final disposition is a matter of no small moment in fa ,- m economics ; There is one broad distinction I desire to make . It is be . cows that are capable of making good beef and those that are not . The former should be treated the same as steers , expecting fair prices ; the latter should be gotten off tne premises at the earliest possible date , because no animal can ne fed for his gains only , much less an old thin cow .

Castration of Bulls . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 10 November 1898

Castration of Bulls . By Dr . C . C . Mills . W HILE , of course , it is generally known that the meat of either bulls or stags is not that most sought after , yet much of it is utilized as food and in many instances makes good beef , for a cheaper grade . The younger the bull is castrated , the better the meat in fiber and texture .. Many bulls of all ages are discarded from service and thrown onto the general market . Some , Jt is true , may have been in service for considerable time and then castrated and sold as a steer . Many are fattened as bulls and are slaughtered as such , probably chiefly on account of the supposed danger of castration . Especially if the bull is to he fed for the butcher in a herd , it will pay in every instance to castrate him . The operation will cause him to lose some flesh , it is true , but . he will be quieter—a great essential to rapid fattening—and much less abusive to other cattle . Quite often bulls may be bought on the stock-yards market and sh...
