Alter She Graduated [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 28 May 1898

Alter She Graduated I was hardly out of school when f married , said a handsome young Brooklyn woman to an acquaintance . I had been studying hard , I was full of ambition—I wanted to be accomplished . I wanted to be a musician , a linguist and a society woman all at once . Then I fell in love and became a wife and mother . My mistake was that I tried to accom plish too much and didnt take care of my health and I broke down . I might have been saved world s of suffering if I had been more careful and used a little common sense . I hated to tell my mother how miserable I felt before I married . I thought she would just pooh ! pooh ! at me . I think mothers understand more about such troubles now-a-days than they used to . I would never allow a daughter of mine to marry , being no stronger than I was then . My husband was so kind and considerate I didnt want to be complaining all the time . He insisted on the doctor coming to see me—a real good , old doctor too . He gave me medicine f...

The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

The Week Events of great moment are crowding closely one upon the other these days , and all are making for the early ending of our war withiSpain and the victory of American arms . So far as the direct results of the war are concerned , they are less liable to cause trouble between ourselves and any other power than had been feared during the earlier days of the contest . England s firm attitude has had much to do with this , and France and Russia are hastening to assure us of their friendship and sympathy . Therefore , unless we unwisely invite international complications by our policy respecting the Spanish colonies we take , we have every assurance that when Spain sues for peace , as she soon must do , the war will with that act be ended . It is-an hour of • tremendous import to the nation , and how earnestly the people hope that this may be the , way of it none may know who have not friends and relatives facing the fearful possibilities of a campaign in thetropics . : . .. - ¦ ...

The Wheat Situation [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

The Wheat Situation Considering the severe drought that prevailed at the time winter wheat was sown and the poor prospect foj a crop that was noted last fall the present outlook is both surprising and gratifying . Current reports show that the prospect is the best of any at this time for ten years . Few reports fail to tell of an increased acreage and the condition is universally good . The weather has been good for winter wheat and there is bat little talk of damage from insects . Only continued wet weather and rust which follows can damage the winter wheat of the country and the yield will no doubt be largely in excess of that of last year when 310 , 000 , 000 bushels were produced by the states from which these reports come . The increase in acreage is from 20 to 25 per cent . Michigan , Indiana and Ohio send glowing reports , those from the latter promising a 20 per cent increase over last year . The acreage in Illinois is smaller than last year , but the yield will be larger if...

The Effect of Rural Life on Character [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

The Effect of Rural Life on Character The family is the social unit ; and this fact is more appreciated in the country than elsewhere . We believe that thorough investigation will show that the relations of husband and wife , parent and child , brother and sister , are less highly esteemed in the town than on the farm . The isolation of each single family on the . farm , to a greater or less degree , leads to neglect of the social conventions of congregated life—but that is comparatively a small matter . Undoubtedly the spirit of independence is a product of the soil . The farmer raises the greater part of what he consumes , and consciously or unconsciously recognizes the fact that he is but using the products of his own toil . He regards his acres as a king might his provinces ; and he feels secure in his well-filled cellar , stalls and granaries as a king might in arsen als and storehouses . He cannot be coerced ; he cannot be bribed ; he is the terror of tyrants and tricksters . ...

Reciprocity with France [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

Reciprocity with France The past week has witnessed the signing of a reciprocity treaty with France which contains features of especial interest to the pork-raisers of this country . Under this agreement the United States admits argols , brandies , still wines and works of art imported from that country at the lower rates of duty provided for in , the LMngley tariff law in the case of countries which make satisfactory concessions in favor of American products or manufactures . France agrees to reduce the duty on manufactured and prepared pork meats from $ 20 per 220 pounds to $ 10 , and on lard from $ 8 to $ 5 per 220 pounds . On table fruit , canned meats , dried or pressed fruit , logs , staves and hops the duties are reduced to the minimum rates of the French tariff . These concessions are valuable as far as they go . The amount of lard and pork shipped to France , which is insignificant now , will be increased considerably . Had it not been for the pressure brought to bear by th...

Rule Out Mill-Dam Sites [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

Rule Out Mill-Dam Sites No contest within recollection has done so much to stimulate interest in a more scientific method in the growing of corn than that which took place in Illinois last season as a result of the generous prizes offered by the state board of agriculture . That there will be a distinct improvement in preparing the ground , planting and cultivation as a consequence of that contest is not to be doubted . It is gratifying , therefore , to know that the board has decided to encourage another contest of the same nature by renewing its offer , as will be seen by the notice upon another page in this issue . It may be recalled that one of the 1897 winners raised his crop upon land that once had been the bed of a mill-dam , and which was rich and fertile beyond compare . It occurs to us that in justice to these corngrowers who dont happen to have old mill-dams upon their farms , and we presume there are a good many who havent , such a manifestly unusual bit of ground should...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

Let Us Keep Faith Our country , right or wrong ! is the motto which some of our too zealous citizenry have adopted . It would be difficult to compose a sentence having more of evil to mankind wrapped up in its meaning , and no man who thinks twice before acting will accept it for his own . There is no time in a nation s history so dangerous to it as when the success of its arms breeds a thirst for glory and gore . As a Kansas correspondent well points out in this issue the very fundamentals of republicanism are overridden by the necessities of war , and absolutism succeeds to de mocracy . What does patriotism demand ? he asks ; Certainly not acquiesence In national dishonor , and that is what is involved in any territorial acquisition growing out of our war with Spain . The United States through its congress and executive has given its word to the nations of the earth that we wage this war on strictly humanitarian grounds ; that we seek no territory and shall annex none . That promi...

Timely Talks [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 4 June 1898

Timely Talks I have noticed some discussion in The Voice and other papers regarding the necessity of changing the seed of corn . Two examples which have come to ray knowledge would indicate the contrary . Mr . Jacob Cress , one of our best farmers near Hillsboro , has been planting the same corn for more than fifty years , and by careful selection has actually improved the quality , as it now shells out sixty to seventy pounds in the ear . This is yellow corn . A Mr . Bewley , who lived near Butler , this county , brought from Ohio more than forty years ago , a white corn which has been planted continuously since , and is in great demand for seed . In both cases , care in selection of the seed has been the only means used to perpetuate the stock . The currant and gooseberry worms have been very destructive this year . I have , however , two gooseberry bushes which have entirely escaped , not a leaf being touched , while every other plant in the same row has suffered , some being alm...
