THE CHINCH BUG . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

THE CHINCH BUG . Prof . Charles E . Thorne , Director , writes : The multitude of letters now received daily at the Ohio Experiment Station indicate that the chinch bug is threatening immense injury to the corn and oats crops of the state , and it is feared that farmers are expecting too much of the fungus which the Station is distributing . In the first place , the amount of this material which it is practicable to send out is extremely small , and it can only infect a comparatively small number of bugs at the best ; the infection , moreover , will require four or five days , by which time the army of bugs will have done great injury . Our advice is , therefore , not to wait for the fungus , but to organize a campaign at once for the immediate relief of the crop , depending upon the fungus to finish the work by destroying the bugs which would otherwise live over winter to menace the crops of next year . The chinch bug , though able to fly , prefers to travel on the ground , and its...

ALFALFA ON HILLSIDES . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

ALFALFA ON HILLSIDES . Alfalfa , in common with cow peas and other plants of southern origin , is gradually working its way over the country . From instinct or adaptation or some other characteristic of plants which causes it to become acclimated to sections where it was previously thought that it would not grow , it is now thriving in the latitude of Chicago almost as luxuriantly as it is in Colorado . It is generally admitted that this plant will grow on almost all kinds of soil except that which has hardpan subsoil . Alfalfa is a deep-rooted plant and as soon as it begins to grow it sends its shoots downward in search of moisture . If the subsoil is so hard that the roots cannot penetrate it , tho plants will suffer for moisture and will die . There is one peculiarity about alfalfa which is not observed to so marked a degree in any other plant , and that is that when it has become adapted to a certain soil and climate it seems to become another variety , and it has been demonstra...

GRADING GRAIN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

GRADING GRAIN . For two years past , Carl S . Schofield , the grain expert of the agricultural department at Washington , has been experimenting on a plan for uniform grading of grain . He has arranged a simple and inexpensive contrivance by the use of which the exact quality of wheat and corn can be determined in a short time . It consists of a small mill for grinding the grain , a balance such as is used by chemists , and a small oven . The manner of deciding the moisture , the percentage of colors in the mixtures , the percentage of damaged grains , and the amount of broken grains and dirt , the four important elements , is clearly shown in his report on this subject . To determine moisture , a small sample of corn is placed in the mill and ground into coarse meal . After grinding , a definite quantity is weighed in the balance . The meal is then placed in metal pans and put in an oven , the temperature of which is 215 degrees . The meal is left in the oven for two hours , during...

GREAT SWINE EXHIBIT AT STATE FAIR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

GREAT SWINE EXHIBIT AT STATE FAIR . One of the most remarkable exhibits of swine ever seen on this continent will be given at the Iowa State Fair , which will be held in Des Moines , Aug . 21 to 29 . It is likely to break the record in this state . Superintendent W . M . McFadden , who is in charge of the swine department , says indications are he will have a larger showing of hogs than last year . At that time , the pens were all tilled to their capacity , with over 1 , 700 head , of hoes . A larger number will , in all probability , be exhibited this year . Much will be added to the attractiveness of the exhibition by the erection of the new judging pavilion for swine , which is practically completed .

FACTS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

FACTS . No man can succeed unless he has faith in his own ability . Never judge a woman s mind by the time it takes her to make it up . One trouble with the average reformer is that he has no other occupation . A cursory glance over an undertaker s books will convince any man that he saves a good deal every year by net dying . He who makes a practice of deceiving others is often the worst fooled fellow in the crowd . If we were all as good as we think our neighbors ought to be , this would be a grand world to live in . It s a sure sign you wont do a certain thing if you say you cant do it . Anyone can fail . The man who wins wills . The bones that accumulate at every farm house will be well and profitably disposed of if buried quite deeply around fruit trees and grape vines . The Pecos valley of New Mexico is growing exceedingly fine apples , and it is claimed it may become one of the great apple regions of the country . Five thousand seven hundred and eighty acres is reported by on...

LIVE STOCK DONDITIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

LIVE STOCK DONDITIONS . District reports from all over the United States relative to general conditions and prospects of the live stock industry for the past six months of this year have been gathered together , with some effort , and the following is the concensus as well as the itemized statements : Western ranges have been overcrowded the past winter . The weather continued dry until May , when certain sections were visited by severe storms , resulting in heavy losses to both cattle and sheep , which were weakened by the continued drouth . There was a great scurrying about for hay and prices in some sections went up to $ 20 . This year is seeing more renting and fencing of state lands and more forage crops planted than ever before in the history of the stock industry of the West . In many sections the cattlemen are reducing their herds , because of the short range , and the consequence will be fewer cattle but a far better quality . Sheepmen are , in the main , holding on , and m...

ASK QUESTIONS . Whatever your duties , whatever you see or hear , the only way to find out more about it is to ask questions . Observation and inquisitiveness give knowledge . It Isnt at all to your discredit to be constantly making inquiries or asking for further or more specific information . Too many people take too much responsiblity and liberties by going right ahead and taking things for granted . There is no more unsatisfactory reply than I dont know . The more you want to know the more you should investigate , so dont be afraid to ask questions .

SENATOR HOAR ON CHARACTER . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

SENATOR HOAR ON CHARACTER . A feature of the commencement exercises at the University of Iowa was an address by United States Senator George F . Hoar of Massachusetts , who said in part : The fate of the nation depends in the last resort on individual character . Everything in human government , like everything individual , depends in the end on individual conduct . Whatever safeguards , however complicated or well adjusted the mechanism , you come to a place somewhere where safety depends upon somebody having the will to do right when it is in his power and may seem to his interest to do wrong . When the people were considering the adoption of the constitution of the United States , one of our wisest statesmen said that the real and only security for a republic is when the rulers have the same interest as the people . If they have not constitutional restraints will break down somewhere , except for the sense of duty for the rulers . All elections depend upon this principle . You ma...

THE ALTON'S SETTLEMENT WITH [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

THE ALTONS SETTLEMENT WITH ITS TRAINMEN . That there is more than one way of adjusting wages between railway companies and their employes is proved by the settlement effected between the Chicago & Alton railway and its conductors and trainmen . While the settlement by which the same class of employes on the Illinois Central secured an advance of from 12 to 15 per cent in Illinois territory was arranged through the officers of the conductors and trainmen s brotherhoods , that between the Alton and its men was arrived at through direct negotiations of the officials of the road and committees of its own employes , and gave essentially the same results . In the manner and results of the negotiations between the Alton and its trainmen there is a lesson that should not be lost on Larry Curran , the president of the International Freight Handlers Union , or on the members of his organization , who have been deluded into reposing faith in his turbulent and truculent coups .

BUYING CLIMATE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

BUYING CLIMATE . Californians are accused of selling climate . Perhaps it is so . It is a good investment . It pays better than buying coal . Open doors , fresh vegetables all the year , flowers and grass and fruits all winter—that is health and happiness and life . Where lands will produce everything that grows in the Middle West , and nearly everything that grows in the semi-tropics , its climate is worth any man s coin . Two crops of Winter vegetables a year on the same land , corn and oranges in the same field , English walnuts and French prunes , Spains olives or Bohemia s hops ; wheat or alfalfa , and four cuttings per season of the latter , $ 50 a year from each cow , or $ 200 an acre from prunes or oranges —that is to be able to choose along the line of your tastes , or your ability , or your experience . Lands are cheap , water plenty , soil rich , and nowhere can a man more easily get started . The state is prosperous , labor in demand , and so rapidly do things grow that ...

A BILLION DOLLARS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

A BILLION DOLLARS . Enormous Sums Expended Annually in the United States for Advertising . Among the various twentieth century professions which have risen within the past ten years , that of the advertising man , according to the New York Times , has suddenly assumed the prominence which it could acquire only in a country which spends $ 1 , 000 , 000 , 000 a year for advertising . This is quite a sum ; three times the value of the wheat crop , nearly five times that of the gold production and ten times that of the iron industry . It requires 100 , 000 men to direct its expenditure . There is not a city of 5 , 000 and upward which has not from one to 100 advertising men ; New York has 5 . 000 and there are half a dozen other cities with nearly as many . The dean of the New York corps ia the advertising agent of a merchant who is admitted to stand at the head of retail advertisers in the United States . This man receives a salary variously estimated at from $ 12 , 000 to $ 15 , 000 ....

SOCIAL CONDITIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 August 1903

SOCIAL CONDITIONS . Cities continue to drain the country of its best brain and brawn . City life would soon run out if it were not from time to time renewed and refreshed by the strong , vigorous currents of healthy country life . Congested life in our great cities is largely due to foreign immigration , but the desolate farms and the rapid decrease of rural Population in so many places prove that the country too furnishes a large luota for the cities . Why is this so ? Largely because most men prefer the bustle and excitement of the city to the quiet and isolation of country life , notwithstanding its greater charm and richer possibilities . Many suffer every Privation , even lack of food and decent homes , in order to exist in the city . The thoughtful man naturally asks , Uinnot rural life be so improved as to check this cityward flow of population ? In fact , the country is constantly improving while the city is becoming more and more crowded and dirty . Free rural mail delivery...

THE LARGEST WINE CISTERN IN THE WORLD . The largest wine cistern in the world is located at Asti . Sonoma county . California . It is S 4 feet long , 34 feet wide and 25 feet high . When this huge receptacle is filled with wine it holds 500 , 000 gallons of the ruddy vintage , and is by five times the most capacious ever built . It takes two steam pumps seven days to fill un the cistern , and it takes four clays for all the wine to run out through the great pipe which leads to the foot of the hill side below .
