Broad-Tired Wagons . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Broad-Tired Wagons . The Missouri experiment station has made a large number of experiments during the past two years with the draft of broad and narrowtired wagons . These tests have been made with the ordinary narrow-tired wheels and with six-Inch tires , on macadam streets , gravel and dirt roads In all conditions , on meadows , pasture , stubble and plowed fields both wet and dry . Bulletin No . 39 of the station , by Director H . J . Waters , gives the result of these tests . The broad tires pulled materially lighter on the macadam street and the gravel roads . Also on dirt roads in all conditions except when soft or sloppy on the surface , underlaid by hard roadbed , and when the mud was very deep and sticky . In both of these conditions the narrow tires pulled considerably lighter . _^&gt; &lt;« pir It should be borne In mind , however , that the roads are In these conditions for a comparatively short period of time , and this at seasons when their use has nat...
The Roney Returner . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
The Roney Returner . The Boney Hay Carrier and Fork returner illustrated on this page is one of the most useful devices that can be used in the hay barn . The writer has very vivid recollections of sore fingers and aching arms resulting from pulling back the hay fork after its load had been dropped into the mow . and can recall times when he was not as far from profanity in his thoughts as a man of decent moral character ought to be . With tbe little device illustrated all this hard work is avoided . When the load has been dropped from the fork the team is unhooked from the rope and the latter is back in its place almost before the team can turn around . It is well made and durable , is easily put np , and its use will unquestionably save not only much labor bnt a great deal of time when time is worth money . It is sold under a guarantee , and agents are wanted on liberal terms . Write to tbe Boney Returner Co ., Independence , Iowa , 1 for further information , mentioning W ALLACBB...

The Fertility in One Year Clover . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
The Fertility in One Year Clover . Mr . Edson C . Knight , of Madison County , Iowa , writes us that there Is a disagreement among readers of the Farmer in that locality as to whether clover should be turned under the fall after It is sown , or be allowed to stand another year and turned under after a crop of hay or seed , or both , have been taken . One side contends that one year clover will not enrich the ground to amount to anything , and that a crop of hay should be taken and the stubble plowed under , the other insisting that one year clover will add very materially to the fertility . Both are right We believe that , as cheap as clover seed is this year , it will pay every man to sow every acre of ground sown In spring grain to clover , even if it has to be turned under this fall . We believe , however , that it will pay better to allow it to remain another year , sowing the common red if you wish a crop of hay , and sowing the mammoth if a cash crop is desired , and then plow...
Clover or Late Sown Rye .- [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Clover or Late Sown Rye .- Mr . G . W . Tallman , of Poweshiek county , Iowa , writes : I have a ten acre piece of land which I wish to sow to clover and timothy this spring . It has been in corn for three years , and last year I cut oft the corn and sowed rye . On account of the dry weather , the rye did not come up . Shall I now go on and sow grass seed on the field , rye or no rye , or shall I sow spring wheat and seed with it ? Is there a probability that the rye will come up this spring ? If so , will it or the wheat kill out the grass ? Would the rye head , and if so , would the wheat be a merchantable crop when mixed with rye ? We would sow grass seed , rye or no rye , and for the following reasons : If the weather was so dry that the rye could not come up sown after the corn was cut off , a portion of it , at least , will come up this spring , and if you were to sow wheat with it , we think you would have a crop which would have to be used for feed , unless you had one of th...
Clover for Fertility . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Clover for Fertility . To W _ u ______ . c ___ s &gt; JVuocmi I see that among the many good things you advocate is the sowing of clover , and right you are . Why let land become poor ? If you have new land , why not keep it fertile by proper rotation instead of raising corn , corn , corn , until the land becomes so run down that one must resort to commercial fertilizers or clover ? It is easier to keep land fat than to make it fat after it once becomes poor . I may some time soon take the liberty of writing you a little experience I had with a naturally good but wornout farm a few years ago in which clover played a prominent part PRANK M . PIERCE . Wayne County , Indiana . Give us your experience , by all means . —Editor .
Experience With Rape . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Experience With Rape . Co W ____ o _ s Tixnni Several years since my attention was called to the quest _ n of cheap feed for stock in the fall of-the year . A couple of years ago I heard of the Canadian practice of feeding rape , and not knowing of any place where I could obtain seed I sent J 5 . 00 to the Editor of Wallaces Parmer , with the request that he send me its value in rape seed . I sowed the seed with a broadcast seeder in the corn field immediately after the last plowing of the corn , and the result was so satisfactory that I shall , in a few days , send $ 20 . 00 for rape seed for this years sowing . This spring when my oats are sowed and harrowed once I shall sow rape seed and then harrow again , and let the rape grow until frost and then turn on the stock . The man who raises sheep has missed his calling if he does not have rape to turn his lambs on in the fall and early winter . It is the feed to help the man to prepare his lambs to top the Chicago market ; try It . ...
The Harrow After the Plow . ' [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
The Harrow After the Plow . CO WALLACIS- r . kBKBB You advised farmers to harrow spring plowing as soon as possible after plowing to prevent it from being cloddy , so , taking your advice , I put four horses to my three-horse plow , then hitched one section of the drag behind the plow so that it ran on the fresh plowing , and practically dragged the land over three times when it did the most good . When I got through plowing , the ground was in the best kind of condition for planting . . I hope this experience may be of value to others in the same condition . E . E . TRACY . Chickasaw County , la .
