The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
The Week Out of the long suspense which followed the cutting of the cables at Manila came news more glorious than we had right to dream of . The victory of Acting Admiral Dewey was not only complete , but it was accomplished without the loss of a single American or serious damage to one of our ships . Eight men on the Baltimore were wounded as a result of an explosion , but so slightly that they continued to fight until the end of the battle . This simple statement is the story of the most marvelous naval battle ever fought . The words can not convey the stupendous meaning of the fact they describe , and the wonder and admiration of the world that such a thing could occur grows as the truth is more completely realized . The utter annihilation of Spain s Pacific squadron at one blow , the capture of the Philippine archipelago within a few hours of time , and all this without dam age to our ships worth mentioning or the loss of a man , is a feat such as the world never has known . The...
Corn ' s Latest Product [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Corn s Latest Product The man who grows Indian corn will hereafter take a new interest in the bicycle and everything else into which rubber enters . That the corn he grows would be turned into tires , rubber coats , shoes and other utilities was never dreamed of until the other clay , when the chemists of the Glucose Sugar Refining company of Chicago , who are ever seeking new uses for corn , discovered a process for making a substitute for rubber from the great American cereal . The oil extracted from the corn , when vulcanized , takes a form perhaps best described as a medium between India rubber and gelatine , of about the consistency of printers rollers , quite light , and fairly resilient . The companys experts claim it is suitable material for bicycle tires , and that one of the large bicycle-tire makers of the West , on experimenting with a sample , gave an order for their entire output , which is limited . The company proposes to revolutionize the rubber trade with the disco...
One Way to Co-operate [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
One Way to Co-operate We hear much of good roads , but very little improvement is noted as the years go by . One of the simplest methods of getting good roads is to keep them good , and the easiest way to do this , and one which involves no expense whatev 3 r to anybody , is to use wide tires . If in every township in the country there were at once organized a Wide Tire Wagon Association whose membership should be composed of all its representative farmers , much of the difficulty with bad roads would be done away with ; in some sections absolutely overcome . This is an age of combination . The farmer is apt to complain , and justly , against the trust and the combine , for up to date we have seen but little good in any of them But the principle of combination and co-operation is the right one , and if farmers . everywhere would put into practice that principle they would be surprised to discover how greatly they were piofiting by the change . In no more practical way , the cost con...

Why the Fair is failing [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Why the Fair is failing An Ohio newspaper says that agricultural societies in several counties in Ohio have decided to hold no fairs . The cause is said to be the feeling that the race-track features is fast superseding the purely agricultural part of these annual exhibitions . Our friend might have added that questionable shows of various kinds , as well as the gambling operations of the race-track , were a powerful influence in destroying popular interest in the fair . We are glad that the people are in revolt against the evil management of the county fair , and the state fair , for that matter , and if they will but kill off every one of them that makes these disgraceful exhibitions principal among its features , they will have done the world a distinct service , and the cause of agriculture will profit by it . The agricultural fair has a distinct mission , and nothing should be permitted to interfere with that mission . To advance agriculture in all ways , to bring farmers into ...
Our Manifest Destiny [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Our Manifest Destiny Much is said these days about the manifest destiny of this American nation . A successful battle with a nation tottering to its grave has unduly aroused the spirit of conquest , and the evil influence of war , psychologically considered , is seen in a desire to extend our field of operations and take to meddling in other folks affairs . The United States has a manifest and a noble destiny , but one that may not be achieved by the conquest of war . Conceived in liberty , born of the struggle to secure it , and nurtured and matured in its efforts to perpetuate freedom and extend its blessings to all men , its manifest destiny is to carry forward this work until the world is truly free . But first let us remove the beam from our own eye that we may the more clearly see how best to relieve our brother of the mote which is in his . Have we attained to that high degree of moral wisdom and strength where we may safely become the rulers or advisers of others ? Can we dr...
The Benefits of Combination [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
The Benefits of Combination Down in Scranton , Pa ., the milk business , wholesale and retail , has been taken over by a syndicate which operates from a central creamery . Some of the results of this co-operative movement have been that the number of peddlers has been reduced by threefourths ; the farmers get their pay for milk delivered in cash , suffer no losses from irresponsible dealers and get on an average % cent a quart more for the milk ; every quart produced within a radius of twenty miles is contracted for ; the consumer gets his milk from 1 to 2 cents a quart cheaper than ever before . How much would be saved if all the milk producers and dealers in the country thus got together ? It is a fine example of the possibilities of mutual co-opera-tion . And suppose this principle were carried out by the fruit growers of Michigan , Illinois , Wisconsin and Missouri , for instance , taking Chicago as the base of operations . How much might be saved to the producer and consumer by...

SW W EVERY producer and consumer of butter in the land is interested in the question of the right of butterine makers to impose their fraudulent stuff upon innocent purchasers as butter . The recent decision of the courts in Chicago by which the anti-color law is temporarily made inoperative ; has aroused great concern , although the friends of honest products are assured that the Supreme court will sustain the law . . Many have felt that the form of the law was at fault , and we have been constrained to that view ; but Governor W . D . Hoard s clear presentation , in a recent number of his paper , of the matter clears up that point , and in order that our readers may get his point of view , which manifestly is the right one , we rep...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Agriculture Keep Feed in Sight The one thing that cannot be too often urged on the farmers of the mid-West is to keep plenty of feed in sight all the time . Almost every one makes ample provision for winter feed , but it is very rarely that a farmer makes provision for a lack of feed in summer . About seven years out of ten in this section there is a lack of feed in summer and the winter supply must be encroached on or the stock must go half-fed on the burned-out pastures , growing thin and going into winter in bad condition on account of drought . We have referred heretofore to supplementary pasture crops and feel like keeping at it until it becomes a general practice to arrange for a supply of feed at the time when our pastures usually fail . The millets are heavy yielders and make good hay , but for a forage crop that may be used if necessary in summer , and if not needed may be saved for winter use and fed instead of hay , there is nothing better than sweet corn or sorghum . Eit...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Garden and Orchard Investigating Root Growth Some interesting experiments were carried on at the Wisconsin experiment station last year in the way of investigating the root growth of various plants . An apparatus was arranged by which the roots were held in their natural position and then the soil was very carefully washed away from them , leaving them plain to be seen . It was found that strawberries did not extend their roots much farther laterally than the leaf growth extends above ground , but the roots penetrated to a depth of two feet . This shows why the strawberry is so susceptible to drouth and why it responds so quickly to the application of fertilizers . It also indicates that the matted row does not interfere with the growth of the plants liy the interlocking of root systems , and to grow such a short-rooted plant in hills is a waste of land . The station recommends that the rows be grown in a slight depression below the general level of the soil , as this will cause the...
Improved Hay Machinery [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Improved Hay Machinery There has been a very great improvement in the methods used in harvesting the hay crop of this country , and that too within the memory of men who do not call themselves old . Comparatively young men remember when the scythe was used lo cut grass in hay making and the hand rake was used to gather it into windrows after it was cured . Then came the revolving horse rake , and later the sulky hay rake , but all these left the hard work of pitching hay onto Hie wagon to be done by hand . We here illustrate a machine which takes the place of the rake and the pitchfork both , and makes it possible to get grass cut and into the barn or Ihe stack in the shape of hay in about half the time formerly required . With the advent of the hay loader the hard work of making hay disappeared . The haymaker now rides to mow the grass , rides to load it , from the swath to the wagon , and at the barn or stack the hayfork lifts it to the place where it is to be stored for future us...

Live Stock and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 14 May 1898
Live Stock and Dairy Sheep in Summer Much of the profit of a flock of shesp depends on the care it gets in summer . Too many flocks are treated as if the summer was the time when sheep can take care of themselves whether they have an opportunity to do so or not . The greatest evil is overstocking . Sheep are dainty eaters and after a pasture has been run over a few days and has become tainted they will only eat as much as hunger drives them to take to keep life going . For this reason sheep pastures should be so arranged that only a portion could be run over at a time and frequent changes made to allow the grass to get freshened and freed from taint . Shade and water are two most important things that are oftenest absent in a sheep pasture . When flies get bad in the summer they bother sheep only about the face , and to protect themselves from this infliction they huddle together with their noses on the inside of the bunch . If they have shade the flies do not trouble them half as m...
