CHIEF TAYLOR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

CHIEF TAYLOR . The Farm Home takes great pleasure of presenting the portrait of Mr . Frederic W . Taylor , the very efficient and popular chief of the Department of Agriculture aud Horticulture of the World s Fair , to be held in St . Louis in 1904 . The readers of the Farm Home are quite familiar with the excellent work of Mr . Taylor in connection with the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and will be pleased to learn more of a gentleman who will have so much to do with the Exposition of our agricultural resources at the universal Exposition in 1904 . Mr . Taylor was born at Weeping Water , Neb ., in 1860 . His father was William Taylor , who was for many years a well-known nurseryman and horticulturist in southwestern Iowa . Young Taylor lived at Creston , la ., and entered the nursery business there , having worked at that during his early life with his father , as well as in some of the largest establishments in America . At the time of his removal back to Nebraska jn 1887 , he was...

AMERICAN FLOUR ABROAD . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

AMERICAN FLOUR ABROAD . Although the capacity of the flour mills of the United States is more than ample to grind into flour all the wheat that is grown in this country , yet many of these mills are out of commission for many months each year , owing to the exports of wheat . The growing tendency to export wheat rather than the flour manufactured from this wheat is caused , not by the lack of demand in foreign countries for our flour , nor by their ability to manufacture flour of equal quality , but by the fact that the transportation companies make a lower rate og ^ wheat than on the manufactured article—flour . While American flour is wanted in European markets , the next best thing , and much cheaper by reason of the lower freight rates , is flour made from American wheat in foreign mills . Great Britain draws its supplies of wheat from India , Argentina , Australia and Russia . While the British miller prefers American wheat , nevertheless he can and does use the supplies from o...

FLOODS AND CROPS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

FLOODS AND CROPS . The Philadelphia Ledger remarks that crop prospects are not as good as usual along the Atlantic seaboard , but that an infinitely more important matter is the crops in the great states of the West , which are the granaries of the world , their large crops being the corner stone of our whole fabric of prosperity . An excess of rain as well as floods in Kansas . Iowa , Missouri and along the Mississippi will unquestionably reduce the corn crop , but a total of 2 , 000 , 000 , 000 bushels is still possible . Corn can be planted in the Hooded bottoms north of St . Louis as late as June 15 or 20 . It takes from !/ 0 to 100 days to mature a crop of corn in Iowa . Forage crops , of course , can be planted late and they amount to much in a pinch , though of secondary value commercially . In spite of a considerable area of flooded fields the yield of wheat in the country generally is expected to be greater than usual . An abandonment of the rich river valleys for agricultu...

THE LARGEST FARM OWNED BY ONE MAN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

THE LARGEST FARM OWNED BY ONE MAN . The largest cultivated farm under single ownership is owned by Mr . David Rankin of Tarkio , Atchison county , Missouri . He is a millionaire and the largest corn grower and stock feeder in the world . His farm contains 23 , 000 acres , all tilled under his personal supervision . His motto is , Thou shall not sell corn , and he rigidly adheres to it . He has never sold even one kernel in his life because it is contrar / y to his principles and experience . He started in life in Illinois with a colt his father had given him , worth about $ 52 . He traded the colt for calves which he traded for two steers , with which he farmed his 80-acre farm which he had bought on time . Afterwards he sold this and bought one in Atchison county , Missouri , where he now lives . His farm is now divided into fourteen sections , each under the direct charge of a foreman . These foremen are educated , capable men and are paid from $ 50 per month to $ 1 , 000 per year...

From Poverty to Independence The writer came here in 1876 , and can say that fully 85 per cent of the wealthiest men in the country to-day came here without anything and have worked up from poverty to an independence by farming and stock raising . Unimproved lands , as rich as can be found in any country , can still be bought here at from $ 5 . 00 to $ 7 . 00 per acre , while improved farms can be bought at from $ 7 . 00 to $ 12 . 00 per acre .

KANSAS WHEAT FARMS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

KANSAS WHEAT FARMS . Sumner county , on the southern line , and Pawnee , on the western border , show a marked contrast in the manner of raising wheat . The average wheat farm in Sumner is about 300 acres . The population of the county is 25 , 797 . In Pawnee , the average wheat farm is 1 , 000 acres . The population of the county is 5 , 680 . A Sumner county farmer owns all the horses and machinery necessary to the planting of his fields , and he hires but little extra help during the harvest . Wheat land in Sumner is worth as high as $ 75 an acre . The total cost for planting and harvesting a Sumner county wheat farm of 300 acres , taking an actual example of a farm , three miles from a railway station , which was bought in 1884 for $ 20 an acre , has been planted to wheat every year since , and is now worth $ 60 , would be , for this year s crop , $ 1 , 650 . Reckoning the yield at thirty bushels an acre and the price at 62 cents a bushel , the income will be $ 5 , 580 , to which...

ALFALFA IN ARKANSAS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

ALFALFA IN ARKANSAS . G . W . Yancey , Phillips county , Ark ., gives the following suggestive information about alfalfa inoculation in a recent letter to Dr . Cyril G . Hopkins , of the Illinois Experiment Station : Tour Bulletin No . 76 on alfalfa contains more convincing facts on a single subject than any small pamphlet that I have heretofore read . I can readily see now why alfalfa will grow to perfection on some of our river bottom lands in this State and will not grow on our up-lands . On the second Monday in December , 1900 , I saw alfalfa knee-high in some portions of Mississippi county , this State , on land that overflows from the Mississippi river when the levee breaks , which doubtless accounts for the bacteria in the soil there . We have fine alfalfa fields in Oil Trough Bottom on White river which overflows shallow when the river goes very high . You can readily see that the White river drains a part of Colorado , Western Kansas and some of Nebraska , the territory tha...

ADAPT YOUR FARMING TO CON -DITIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

ADAPT YOUR FARMING TO CONDITIONS . Robert H . Paisley writes : As farmer boys and young farmers we should study the conditions that surround us and adapt our system of farming to those conditions . No one farmer can successfully raise all the crops grown in his state or county . Neither can one farmer or stockman do justice to all kinds of live stock unless he has more help than most farmers can afford . Some variety of crops and live stock is necessary for the good of the soil and the proper division of work , but many of us have too great a variety , and so have to neglect some things . We should have a definite plan in our farming , giving some profitable crop or live stock precedence and arranging other things with reference to it . Our individual tastes and inclinations should help us to decide what line of farming to follow . A boy who hates to milk will never make a successful dairyman , and the same is true in regard to other kinds of farm work . Of course , we must not give...

ORCHARD CULTIVATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

ORCHARD CULTIVATION . In a recent paper on Tillage of Orchards , Prof . L . H . Bailey took safe and common-sense middle ground , and his remarks were especially interesting in view of the recent discussions of extremes in the agricultural press . The modern clean tillage movement , he said , originated in the East about ten years ago . It has been of incalculable advantage by giving us new ideas and vitalizing fruit growing . Possibly the idea has been over-exploited . Tillage means stirring the land for the lands sake , not merely for the purpose of preparing a seed bed or of killing weeds . We till to make the land more productive , and this in three ways , viz .: ( 1 ) to make plant food more available ; ( 2 ) to preserve moisture ; ( 3 ) to prevent injury from insects and disease . If we can accomplish these things better by other means , these other means should be adopted . The best for one man is not always the best for another . Tillage is a method , not an aim . . Cover-cr...
