The Modern Use of Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Modern Use of Corn . Xhe low prices of corn in the last two years and the enormons exports f of it are beginning to attract public attention and discussion In the large dailies , and as usual there is a good many wild and extravagant statements . Exports now equal or exceed tiose of wheat and it is predicted that there will reach in a few years to come 500 , 000 , 000 bushels . One leading Chicago paper estimates the capacity of the corn production In the United States at 2 , ( 100 , 000 , 000 bushels , or 20 per cent more than has ever been produced In a single year . This seems to us folly In the extreme . The com country has now been fully mapped and defined , north , south , east , and west . Its limits are determined by the temperature and rainfall and these can not be changed . Corn con not be grown successfully much west of Great Bend , Kansas , and north of the Iowa line , or at least north of the three southern tiers of counties of Minnesota it will never be produced be...
The Abundance of Idle Money . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Abundance of Idle Money . The abundance of loanable money ¦ and the decreasing rates of interest over the entire country , and especially in the farming districts of the West , Is a matter of common remark and general discussion . The fact is nof disputed . The interpretation placed on the fact by the Eastern papers and the press generally Is that the Western ) farmer Is unusually prosperous and that this prosperity Is to abound yet more and mora We believe the interpretation is at least partially wrong ; in short , the abundance of this idle money Is not due to a surplus In the hands of farmers , hut to the Jack of demand , and this lack of demand Is not on evidence of prosperity , but the reverse . The situation , as we understand It , is this . The farmer is not borrowing to pay losses , as he has done some times in past years , making money scarce and interest high ; he is not talking calamity ; he has no occasion ; nevertheless , he is not borrowing , he is paying debts as ...

Abortion In Milk Cows . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Abortion In Milk Cows . In our Issue of October 29 th , 1897 , we published a communication from Mr . N . A . Und , a Short-horn breeder of Rolfe , Iowa giving the method by which he has succeeded in checking the ravages of abortion in Ms herd in 1894-1895 , and in preventing any recurrence of this troublesome disease , as follows : I had found abortion the most difficult disease to control . Like many breeders , I had been using hemp seed at the rate of a pint a day for a month previous to the five month period at which time abortion is most likely to i &gt; ccur , but It did no good whatever . In the winter of 1894-1895 , I had 30 head of thoroughbred Short-horn cows all ln calf to my herd bull , Wild 2 Byes Duke 2 d . In less than four months , 18 out of the 36 aborted . I tried everything I could hear of in vain , and finally saw your report of the carbolic acid treatment and concluded to give It a trial , and for the benefit of the readers of Wallaces Farmer will state ...
A Novel Use of Boulders . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
A Novel Use of Boulders . In some sections of Iowa and adjoining states there are great numbers ol boulders strewn over the hind or lying Immediately under the surface . These belong to the period when all of Iowa and the states east and north , and to some extent , west , were cover ed with glaciers . It will 1 &gt; e found on examination that eome of these boulders ore granite and some are quartz ; the former red , the latter white . Some ttoes one prevails in a section , some times the other , and some times they are in about equal proportions . It will be found on examination that in nearly every case one side of these boulders is straight , the result of the planting of the lee mass on the underlying rock . Mr . W . O . Fairbanks , of Waterloo , is using these boulders as a floor for hog pens and feeding places . He takes the boulders as near the same size as possible , places them in juxtaposition , the flat side up , takes the dirt away from below according to the siz...
Oil Meal for Milk Cows . reader [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Oil Meal for Milk Cows . reader A Jackson county , Iowa , asKS whether oil meal fed to cows in milk has any injurious effect on the milk or the flavor of the butter . It has no injurious effect if fed in reasonable quantities . It might ibe possible to feed such large amounts that the system of the cow would be injured and the quality of the milk suffer as a consequence , but it would not b » profitable even if no injurious resutta followed . Oil meal is not to be used as a single food . Its value lies ln the fact that It Is rich in the food principles that most of our farm grains are deficient Jn , and therefore , Its chief value is to mix with other foods aa a balancer .

The Creamery Shark . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
The Creamery Shark . The Rural New-Yorker , la speaking of tlie operations of the creamery sharks in that state says : One of the worst features of this whole business is that there can generally be found local men , with whom the farmers are acquainted and in whom the farmers place more or less confidence , who are willing , after having been given a little stock , to use their influence in deceiving the farmera Into a bad business enterprise . No words of condemnation are too severe to he applied to men who consent , for so small a price , to do their neighbors injury . AH this sounds very natural . It is the trick played all over the West by tlie Davis &amp; Rankin crowd , whether operating under their names after they became odious or not . The result was creamery wrecks all over the state and adjoining states , disgusted farmers , neighborhoods at variance , and the putting back of the dairy interests from five to ten years . It was not strange that when prices of grain...
Mr C * mp Rooli'ssti Criticism [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Mr C * mp Roolissti Criticism Fa W « AOE « VARMBB * In the Farmer of December 31 two young men slightly criticize my article in which I tried to give some advice to young men with regard to beginning the life of n farmer : Nature seems to have organized society in such a way that more than one-half are servants , in some capacity , to the rest . They begin with nothing and end with nothing ; it cant Tie helped . They have poor luck , they blame everybody but themselves . As a matter of fact they are not to be blamed , for they fill just the place they were intended to fill . The simple truth Is they lack capacity to climl ) . As an agricultural writer I never have this class in mind when giving , advice . There are a few at the other end of society who are smart . I belong to this class ; so do the two young men who criticize me ; so do hundreds of others . We dont need any encouragement or advice . We push ahead to success anyhow , in whatever we undertake . I never follow the fina...
Forecasting the Future , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Forecasting the Future , To WAT . T . tfflBt FABDBl It is only , by hard thinking , and reading the best farm papers , that one is able to plan for the future with any degree of certainty . The price of live stock plays up and down until the best of us get beat at selling . It has only been a few years since hogs were worth six dollars and thirty cents a hundredweight , and cattle were so low that we were glad to get two cents a pound for them . To-day cattle are so high that they can hardly be had for love or money , while hogs are being marketed for less than the cost of production . I think Wallaces Farmer is right In insisting on reliable statistics . If we can get truthful statements from time to time with regard to the numbers of live stock , age , condition , etc ., we might be able to get some benefit from them . We cant depend on the government . It is already so bulky we must resort to some other pilan . I believe it would be a good thing for the several states to take up ...
Sod-Bound Pastures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Sod-Bound Pastures . To WSTTMTI rAsms : .. * Permit me a word , although like the editor , I nave had little experience along this line . The Book says , Go to tlie ant and consider her ways . I see how she opens the earth and admits the moisture to the subsoil . So does the much despised gopher , and I often wonder whether he is really an enemy or not . I have long since ceased to destroy the squirrels , but feed rliem instead , and consider them my friends , because they let the water to tlie subsoil . Do yon see the work of that ground mole ? He may , and sometimes no doubt does , do harm in the vegetable or flower gardens , but I believe that upon the lawn and in the pasture he is the farmer s friend , and if we would consider his ways , put plenty of horse-power to a modern subsoil plow , and go over the aforesaid pasture and let not a little , but a good deal , of air and moisture into the subsoil and thereby to the grass roots , a great change would come over that pasture .

Sugar Beets for Feed . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 14 January 1898
Sugar Beets for Feed . To wsT . T . tflM Tama : You ask the readers of Wallaces Farmer to give their experience in any enterprise , so as I have had the benefit of the advice of others through the Farmer I will give you some of my own experience . I notice there is a good deal being said now about the sugar beet . There is not a crop raised that will pay the farmer better than a . few acres of sugar beets for feed . In 1895 my neighbors had the beet craze and planted a great many beets for the factory . I put in one acre for feed . They all made fun of me , but aM the same I went ahead and raised the beets . To-day those who laughed at me for planting beets for feed say that it is the only way that raising beets will pay , and next year they intend to plant their beets for feed instead of for sale to the factory . For all that I believe tfchere is money in raising beets for sale to the factory if the ground is thoroughly prepared beforehand , so that the expenses do not eat up the p...
