The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
The Week Since the beginning of hostilities no week has been so full of interesting incidents important to pur arms , so promising of success , or reflecting so much credit upon the courage and ability of our forces . The glorious achievements of Dewey in the Pacific will ever stand out as the most marvelous in the history of naval warfare , and we are not unmindful of that when we thus speak of the occurrences of the past week . But the single incident of last Friday morning , when Richard Pearson Hobson , with a volunteer crew of seven men-sailed the collier Merrimac into the harbor of Santiago . de Cuba and sank her there athwart the channel , thus corking up the bottle- into which the Spanish fleet-had been forced , sheds a luster upon the daring-spirit ; of the men who knew no danger , in the face of duty-to-be done , as-bright as any deed recorded in history , and gives . us courage and assurance to know that the American arms are invincible when strengthened by a noble purpos...
Approaching a True Democracy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Approaching a True Democracy Our state socialist friend from Texas appears in this issue to protest against the characterization of his scheme of state socialism as undemocratic , which appeared in these columns May 14 . He declares that under his scheme no rule can become operative until approved by a majority of intelligent people , after due consideration and full and free discussion , and which Is even then subject to resubmission if called for by the initiative in regular form . If there can be a more democratic method of making laws , I confess I am too obtuse to see how it could be done . But the method is not what The Farmers Voice finds fault with . It is with the nature of the proposed legislation , which we repeat is an impertinent interference with the right of the individual man , even though ninety-nine men in every hundred throughout the length and breadth of this land should favor it . There are certain things which are not subject to law and with which the public ha...

Liquid Air [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Liquid Air More wonderful than the discovery and application of steam and electrical forces in mechanics ; more marvelous than Jenner s discovery of vaccination , or Pasteur s preventive treatment of hydrophobia in pathology ; more destructive than gun cotton and nitroglycerine as an explosive ; more readily applied and of infinite greater power in refrigeration than anhydrous ammonia , the recent discovery of methods of securing and applying liquid air is the most revolutionary advance step ever taken in the world of physics , and its effects upon economic and social conditions is past all conjecture . To Charles B . Tripler , an American experimenter and inventor , belongs the credit of this marvelous discovery , and in the current issue of the Cosmopolitan Magazine he sets forth something of the results of his ten years patient search after the key with which he opened for all the door to a new world . If , as he declares , liquid air can be produced at a low enough cost to make ...
Use Paint and Save Money [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Use Paint and Save Money On a high wall in Chicago is the sign of a dealer in paints which says , in letters about ten feet long : Paint saves money . If a good many farmers had such a sign within reach it would be a good thing for them , for the truth of it would certainly appeal to them and perhaps lead them to keep their farm buildings well painted . It seems that most of the painting in the country has been done for effect rather than for the purpose of saving money , for while nearly every house is painted a good many barns and other outbuildings are al lowed to stand to be weathered and worn out without being preserved by being kept covered with paint . When barns were made of rough ^ awed lumber it was a costly work to undertake to paint them , but in these days when all the lumber used is ship-lap or regular- weather-boarding , planed and ready to paint , it is pretty costly to allow a building to stand unpainted . Paint works in two ways to save buildings . The pigment used...
Diversified Farming [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Diversified Farming This is a subject which cannot be too often brought to the attention of farmers everywhere , because it is the most rational as well as the most profitable system that has ever been devised . To raise corn alone or wheat alone or cotton alone is not the part of . wisdom . Thousands of acres of Kentucky land is barren because it has been devoted to tobacco exclusively and multiplied thousands are barren in other states because cotton , wheat or corn has been grown year after year , until the plant food for the particular favorite crop is exhausted . There is hardly a place in the United States where the farmer is confined to a single crop as his main dependence . He can rotate corn , oats and grass or clover ; corn , wheat and clover , or corn , oats , wheat and clover in the corn belt , cotton and almost any other crop or series of crops in most of the cotton belt and even the great wheat fields of the Northwest may be given over to a rotation of at least three y...
Mutual Farm Insurance [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Mutual Farm Insurance Recently two friends have been burned out of their homes ; both were living in large farm houses . One of them was insured in a mutual insurance company organized by the farmers of the county in which he lived and he will get the insurance without trouble . This happens to be the first loss- of the company , and he gets his insurance without its having cost him a cent save $ 1 for the policy . He has had three years insurance for this dollar . The other had his house insured in an old-line insurance company and an adjuster has been around and abused and villifled him and tried to get him to acknowledge that his furniture was old and worn out and that his loss was about half the amount his policy calls for . He found on looking over the conditions printed in very fine type on his policy that his books , piano and sewing machine were not insured and will be a total loss . Sometime in the future , very soon , perhaps , the company will grudgingly pay him about thr...
The Agricultural Outlook [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
The Agricultural Outlook While the nation is engaged in war the wonderful productive power of the nation increases . How great the difference between Spain s bankrupt treasury and paralyzed industry and that of the United States with its vast financial resources and extraordinary agricultural conditions ! The hopelessness of the situation wculd appeal to the most ignorant Spaniard could the falsehoods of the politicians be suppressed and the real truth be known to the people of that misguided nation . According to the reports received at Washington there is an increased acreage devoted to winter wheat of 1 , 720 , 000 acres , and of spring wheat 2 , 632 , 000 , ai compared with last year , while the prospects of bumper crops were never better , and the chances for high prices the best in many y . ears preceding 1897 . Present estimates from thirteen states place the increased yield at 60 , 000 , 000 bushels . Portions of the corn belt are stjll suffering from extraordinary participa...

Agriculture Squire Bunker on Providence It s curious , said Hank Lister , in a tone of conviction , how contrary the weather is . Now I never sot oiit to do a certain piece o work in my hull life but what the weather was agin me—right plum center agin me . Jesso , remarked Joe Strong , it alius rains in clover harvest , durin quarterly meetin an when they s goin to be a picnic . It seems to me they s a cog out o place somewhere r other . You never knowed a convention to come off but what it rained , chimed in the postmaster , who being a government official , usually brought politics to the front whenever he joined the conversation of the group that infested—or possibly that is too harsh a word—occupied his office .

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 11 June 1898
Garden and Orchard Garden Notes A year ago the Rural New-Yorker sent me- a little two-ounce Sir Walter Raleigh potato With the request that I give it good care and report results . Last summer was a bad one for potatoes and mine did not do exceedingly well , although the return was satisfactory . When these potatoes matured in the fall they were dug and thrown out in the full sunlight and left there until they were so sunburned that they were almost black . Then they were stored away in a closet and kept until this spring , when they were again brought into the light and allowed to start sprouts . These sprouts were very strong and stocky , and when they were two inches , long the potatoes were cut and planted , care being taken not to break the sprouts off in the operation . At the same time these tubers were planted some White Beauties from Vick were planted and now both sorts are up , but the difference in size is remarkable . The Sir Walters are twice as large as the others and ...
