The Cash Rent System . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Cash Rent System . Boomer or later the fawns of the West be rented for casli rent . In . all . ^ gfll jjgew countries , both on this continent aad on the old , rents are first paid In ijttad , that Is , by a share of the pro- ! jhcts , gradually advancing to a part i jpgyment in cash , as suggested in onr ? jbst article , and finally to cash rent .

Drawing Manure In Winter . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Drawing Manure In Winter . Is a recent issue Mr . L . C . Greene had a timely article , -. Jin which he advocated Ihe drawing of the manure direct from the barns to the fields during the winter . The Farmer wishes to endorse all that Mr . Greene says on the subject , and the writer can speak by the book , for be practiced what Mr . Greene preaches while lie was actively engaged in farm work . It is an easy matter to dispose of the mamure in this way , if one only gets into the habit of it . Every day a team must be hitched to the wagon for some purpose , and by arranging time a little the manure can be hauled direct to the fields just about as quick as it can be pitched out of the bairn and piled out of the way . The writer used to Jural from three stables , the horse stable and two cow stables . In the eveming the wagon was left close to the door of the horse stable where tt would be out of the way , and the manure from the horses was thrown into the wagon the first thing after the...
The Rainfall of the Season . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Rainfall of the Season . From the December report of the Des Moines Station , we learn that the average deficiency in precipitation , or the combined rain and snow fall for the last month was 5 . 30 inches ; that K we had that much less rain last year than the normal . Notwithstanding this fact , the short crop is due to an excess of rain in the spring . Had the rainfall been distributed as in some other years , we would have had a full crop nil around . Too much rain In the sprln ? is more damaging than too little rain in the summer .

Edward Atkinson on Corn Stover . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Edward Atkinson on Corn Stover . Mr . Edward Atkinson , of Boston , has long been recognized as one of the leading writers on economic subjects , and in a recent Issue of the Country Gentleman he calls attention to what he regards as the possibilities of cattle feeding as a result of the invention of the Marsden process for separating the pith of the corn stalk from the substance for the purpose of using It as an inner lining for battleships . He suggests that the aversion of cattle to feeding on dry corn stalks is due to the fact that the pith , which constitutes one-eighth of the stalk after the ear is removed , will absorb twenty times its volume of water , hence acts as a hindrance instead of a help to digestion . He cites also the experiments at the Maryland Station , to which we referred about a year ago , as evidence that after the pith has been removed and the dry corn stalk ground it is eaten with relish , readily digested , and is more than equal to the best of hay . He th...
The New Methods of Trade . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The New Methods of Trade . Within the last few years there has been a remarkable development in the methods of trade . It is not many years since if the housekeeper hi the city wamited groceries She had to put on her bonnet , . take her basket , go to the store , buy them , and carry them home herself . By and by the grocer was ready to deliver them . Now in all the larger towns he sends out his boy in the morning and solicits orders , and all that the good woman has to do is to give her order and the goods will be brought . Why does the merchant do this ? Because ofcompetition . If he does not his neighbor will . Forty years ago the merchant went twice a year • to New York to buy his goods . He does mot do that now unless he wants to take a vacation . He does not hunt the seller ; the seller is hunting Mm . A very large per cent of the travel on the railroads is that of drummers soliciting trade . There is a sample room in every good hotel where he can display his wares . As in the...
Unrecognized Benefactors . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Unrecognized Benefactors . Looking at it from one point of view , there are two classes of fanners : The one , money makers , practical fellows who take no chances but work on old established lines . They are not willing to expend anything on theories or experiments . What they are after is the dollar , first , last , and all the time . There is a good deal to admire in this type of farmers . The other class can not help making experiments and improvements . 2 Ehey are interested in every new breed of stock , in every new variety of grain , and In every new method of culture . If they have adopted one particular breed of stock , they are anxious to get the best of that breed . They are after the best seed of corn and other grains . They are natural experimenters . The value of this second class is never fully recognized by the first until after they go out of business . One of them will settle in a community , Introduce improved hogs , cattle , or sheep , and the practical fellows w...
Grade up the Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Grade up the Cattle . There is en ebb and a flow In all kiaus f business . Human progress is gomething like the waves of the sea , Hke the human walk , a continual rising and falling , like the throbbings of the heart or the pulsation of the arteries . We advance , then halt , recede , jnd again advance . Improvement in live stock seems to be governed by the same law . Tea years ago , and up to five years ago , the cattle stock of the prairie states was quHe well graded np . It was difficult to find a pure scrub , or a native without more or less Improved blood of some sort . In almost every township there were one or more , and some times many herds , of Short-horn cattle especially , that were thoroughbreds so far as all practical purposes outside of furnishing heads of herds were concerned . There ¦ were grade cows that were equal in beef qualities and superior in milking qualities to the pedigreed herds . From these herds came beef which , when properly finished , could not be e...
Sugar Beet Developments . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Sugar Beet Developments . The country will await with very considerable interest the report of the government on the lines of beet sugar development during the past year . This report will no doubt give a fair idea of the actual as distinct from the theoretical beet sugar ibelt and will indicate the points , at which more thorough investigations will ln an likelihood be most profitable . It seems quite clear now that somewhere in the United Slates the entire amount of sugar needed for home consumption will be produced within the next ten years . This will amount to a saving to the entire nation of about $ 100 ,- 000 , 000 per year , which In itself will in time go far toward making this country the great financial and manufacturing center of the civilized world . It seems to us that next year the experimentation will take a somewhat different line . This year will tell in a general way the section of country in which beet sugar is likely to be a profitable Industry . Next year very ...
Sow More Clover and Timothy . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Sow More Clover and Timothy . The uncommonly low price of clover seed this year should lead to an increased acreage sown to clover . This is desirable on other grounds . We are growing entirely too much corn and too little grass . A stranger traveling over northwestern Iowa and noting the acreage of corn and the price , and comparing this with the price of stock cattle , would he at a loss to under- . stand why farmers should grow so few stock cattle and sheep for which they can secure a price , which in com parison with other products of the farm , Is exceedingly high . Of course , all this may change , but we can guard ourselves against the change by keeping a stock of old corn on hand , in the confidence that there are a large number of farmers who will grow corn and must grow corn until they learn to handle live stock . In a recent Issue we gave our readers several reasons why they should grow more clover , and in doing so we by no means exhausted this branch of the subject . We...
The Outlook for Wheat . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Outlook for Wheat . As our readers are very much interested in the future of the wheat market , we give them from time to time what may seem to be the latest information on the supply and demand . The New York Journal of Commerce has recently published a special crop report which makes the area of winter wheat 11 . 4 per cent larger than last year . There was an increase of 4 . 5 per cent on the Pacific coast , and from 15 to 22 per cent in the Southern states . It Is estimates an Increased acreage of 4 per cent in Illinois , 10 per cent in Missouri , and 19 per cent in Kansas . The condition now the country over is 87 . 8 per cent as compared with 79 . 5 a month ago , the result of snow protection and more or less moisture . It estimates that 41 . 3 per cent of last year s pioduction is still on hand , and the number of bushels 315 , 000 , 000 , of which 150 , 000 , 000 will be required for bread , 20 , 000 , 000 for spring seeding and 145 , 000 , 000 as a surplus for export an...

The Iniquities of the Pooling Bill . —No . 2 . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Iniquities of the Pooling Bill . —No . 2 . SWHAT coMPrrmoN MEANS TO THJ FABMEB . The main object of every railroad pool of every kind Is to strangle competition between railroads or steamships , or both , and to exempt transeirtatlon from the operation of the w under which all other modern business is conducted . Competition between transporters is vital to the prosperity of the farmer and one of the greatest Iniquities of the pool Is the fact that It strangles competition . For this reason the pool is death to the farmer . It may be slow and lingering , but it is death all the same . • * » The world has a few granaries , favored spots where the grain and grasses that furnish food for the live stock , and to feed the world , grow in the greatest luxuriance and far in excess of the demands of local consumption . The Northwestern states are but one of these granaries . The Argentine is another ; a portion of Russia is another ; Australia Is another . With these the Northwest must ...
