A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig . Of all the delicacies , I will maintain roast pig to be the most delicate . I speak not of your grown porkers—things between pig and pork—those hobbyrehoys—but a young and tender suckling—under a moon old—guiltless as yet of the sty—with no original speck of the hereditary tailing of the first parent yet manifest—his Voice as yet not broken , but something between a childish treble and a grumble—the mild fore-runner of a grunt HE MUST BE ROASTED . I am not ignorant that our ancestors ate them seethed , or boiled , —but what a sacrifice of the exterior tegument ? There is no flavor comparable , I will contend , to that of the crisp , tawny , well-watched , not over-roasted , CRACKLING , as it is well called , —the very teeth are invited to their share ot the pleasure at this banquet in overcoming the coy , brittle resistance , — with the adhesive oleaginous—O , call it not fat ! but an indefinable sweetness growing up to it—the tender blossoming of fat...

Harnessing the Horse . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Harnessing the Horse . BY J . J . EDGERTON , IOWA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE . During the leisure hours of the winter is a good time for the farmer to review his past methods and see whether they have not faults , that may , before another season s work opens up , be eradicated . Even if they have no serious faults , if his practices be such as would be termed , by the majority of his fellow workmen , very good , he will do well to examine carefully his actions to see if there be not some way open for improvement . In this retrospection it would probably be well for him to give his attention first to one of his most helpful friends—the horse ; and see if he has not often called upon him to work at a disadvantage which might have been avoided by a little ingenuity on the part of tho driver . It often happens that a horse is so hitched as not to be able to utilize near all the strength that It possesses , or in such a manner as to waste much of the effort put forth . Sometimes he is harness...

The Skillful Specialist and hi § New Discovery w The Eminent Physician and Scientist Who Has Proved That All Kidney , Bladder and Uric Acid Troubles Can * Be Cured . You May Have a Sample Bottle of the Great Discovery Sent Free By Mail . As we are by nature subject to many diseases , the only way to guard against all stampedes on our health is to make a study of our own physical self . If a peculiar pain attacks you , try to locate its origin and discover which organ of the body is sick and in need of attention . If the kidneys are at fault—and m almost every case in the failing of our health they are—look well to their restoration to health and strength . They are the great niters of our body , and consequently , the purity of the blood is entirely dependent on their cleansing powers . If the kidneys are not in a perfectly clean and healthy condition , the blood becomes impregnated with impurities and a decay ot the kidneys soon takes place , if your desire to relieve yourself of w...
That Low Cost Barn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
That Low Cost Barn . M . C . O . Anderson , of Nebraska , writes : In looking over the lumber bill for the low cost barn in Wallaces Parmer of February 25 th , I think you have made a great mistake . You figure it out at $ 27 . 63 , and it cannot be bought for ? 50 . 00 in this state , or any other . I do not believe you can go to the same mill and get it for $ 40 . 00 . Such figures make farmers think you know nothing about their affairs . did not read the We fear our friend article In question very closely . The figures were taken from a bulletin issued by the North Carolina Experiment Station , and of course apply only to that section . Immediately under the figures we called attention , to the fact that the prices would vary In different localities , but that any reader could go to his local dealer and secure the prices . Wo do not see how there is any possible reason for any reader being mislead .

Why is the Price of Corn Low ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Why is the Price of Corn Low ? One of the most notable articles in the reviews for the month of February is one on Corn and Cotton Seed in The Forum , written by the noted statistician , C . Wood Davis , of Kansas , and there is much in it that our readers would do well to turn over in their minds . Starting out with the statement that the acreage in corn since 1887 has averaged but 12 . 8 per cent of an increase as compared with the ten years preceding , with an increase in domestic population of 24 . 6 per cent , and exports in primary and secondary forms 43 per cent greater , Mr . Davis asks why has the price averaged 16 . 8 per cent less . Amplifying the statement , he goes on to show that the annual supply ol corn for purely domestic consumption equals 26 . 7 bushels , a- the yield of one and one-tenth acres for each unit of population , and yet , since 1887 , domestic unit consumption has fallen to 23 . 7 bushels , annual average , or the product of 0 . 97 of an acre , a reduc...

Over Production of Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Over Production of Corn . Tbe prices of most farm products are now becoming fairly satisfactory . Hogs are lower than we would like to see them . Horses are In the same condition , bnt the farmer has reason to complain more of the price of corn than anything else , and especially because heretofore it has formed his principal crop . We publish in this Issue some new and rather startling opinions on the subject by C . W . Davis , of Wichita , Kansas , and whether he Is correct or not , and we think he ls in a large part , the one thing for the farmers in the Western states to do Is to decrease their acreage of corn and Increase their acreage of grass to as great an extent as possible . This is easier said than done . It is not expensive this year to buy grass seed or the small grains necessary to make the change . It ls not difficult to sow them as we have suggested from time to time , and with a fairly average season there will be no great difficulty In securing a stand . The diffic...

Better Varieties of Oats . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Better Varieties of Oats . The farmers of the West stand in great need of a variety of oats that will mature early and that will not rust or lodge . We do not certainly know of any variety that fills this bill completely . We have recommended the Early Champion because it is less liable to lodge than many others , and also makes a better nurse crop . We hope our readers will experiment with new varieties for the purpose of determining which one best suits their soil and locality . The man who will grow a variety of oats that will follow corn without clover , that will be rust proof ana stand up well , will deserve to make a fortune while he is living , and have a big tall monument with a sheaf of oats on top of it after he is dead .
Profit in Sheep . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Profit in Sheep . Mr . O . P . Browlie , a well known fanner of Lucas county , Iowa , writes as follows of hla experience with sheep : March 1 , 1889 , 1 bought flf ty-flve old • mm . twenty-flve yearlings , and one buck , paying | M 7 for tha lot . By the terms of the contract , I was to go Into the flock and select the ewes . When I had selected them , the owner laughed at me , and said I had taken every old ewe in the flock that had shed her teeth . I write this to show you just how little I knew about sheep . I never thought to look at their teeth to ascertain their age . When I brought them home , my wife laughed at me and said I would soon get sick of those things and that I would never get my money back . Well , I have a correct record of my sales for six years , as follows : July , 1889 , wool ? 116 . 00 February , 1890 , 63 lambs 190 . 00 August , 1891 , wool 385 . 00 October , 1891 , 31 yearlings and 60 lambs 289 . 00 November , 1891 , 20 . old ewes ... 40 . 00 June , 1892...
Early Planting of Potatoes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 March 1898
Early Planting of Potatoes . VO W ____ C _» - , !___¦» Try planting the potatoes a little bit earlier this spring than common . Plant them deep enough so that if we should have freezing weather it would not reach the seed . We advise this as an experiment , on the same principle that we plant our hyacinths , tulips , and some other bulbs . We plant them very early ; in fact , we often plant them in the fall of the year . The reason for this early planting is that they grow a fine lot of roots before the top makes much growth . Now , I do not see why it will not work as well with potatoes . The top will start as soon as the root , no doubt , but the roots will grow In a lower temperature than the tops , and when we get a good growth of roots and growing weather , they will shove the top right along . When there are good growthy vines , they will assist the roots , and the result , in my judgment , will be a good crop of potatoes , other things being favorable . The best crop of potat...
