Page 4 Advertisements Column 1 [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

Ail Investmeiif that Appeals to Conservative People The above is a photograph of our 40-ton Locomotive which has been put into commission on the C ., M . & St P . R . & where the merits of our device for increasing adhesion between the drive wheel , and rail have been thoroughly proven . By the use of magnetism , to increase adhesion between drive wheel and rail , many of the obstacles now confronting the railroad world are overcome . ( Notice small wheels on either side of tne drivers in illustration . ) By means of these idler wheels a magnetic circuit is completed on the principle of the horseshoe magnet , thereby increasing the weight or the adhesion to the rail without adding extra weight to the axles . We do away with the use of sand and prevent slipping of wheels under all conditions of rail . Sand is one of the banes of railroading . It costs the railroads , approximately , $ 10 , 000 , 000 annually , and also necessitates enormous expenditure for sho...

UNCLE SAM ' S BALANCE SHEET . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

UNCLE SAM S BALANCE SHEET . In the early part of the present fiscal year the government s outgo exceeded its income . This ls not an infrequent condition , for the expenditures , owing to the heavy interest payments In July , the fiscal-year s first month , axe always heavy . But the tide has turned . For September the . treasurys receipts surpassed its . disbursements by $ 6 , 450 , 000 . Thus , while the balance was--on -the other side of the account along to- the first of Sejrtember , the heavy excess of receipts in that month has brought the surplus lu Income for the first quarter of the fiscal year 1904 to $ 5 , 590 , 375 . As the condition is apt to be more favorable in the remaining nine months the chances are that the surplus at the end of June next will be in the neighborhood of $ 25 , 000 , 000 , or about half of that of the fiscal year which ended three months ago . In the work of cutting down taxation in order to decrease the congestion of money in the treasury , the con...

STEAM AND TROLLEY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

STEAM AND TROLLEY . The development of the trolley system in New England , where it has made the greatest progress , is beginning to attract wide attention , especially as it promises to become a dangerous competitor with the steam railroad system . Already rails of the same weight are used on the electric as on the steam roads and well nigh equal speed is made in rural districts , while greater speed is made inside city limits . The cars are being made nearly as large if not so heavy as those on steam roads , and in nearly all country places mails and light freight are carried as well as passengers . Trolley lines are connecting country towns which only could be reached by wagons , and by bringing them into communication with railroad stations are developing their business . Nearly every state in New England can now be crossed , north and south and east and west by electric cars and in some cases cities as far apart as Portland , Boston , Providence , Hartford and New York have bee...

TO RECLAIM AN EMPIRE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

TO RECLAIM AN EMPIRE . President Roosevelt did not exaggerate the importance of the national irrigation - act when he said , in his letter to the irrigation congress , that it was the beginning of an achievement so great that we hesitate to predict the outcome . The act of June 17 , 1902 , applies to fully two-fifths of the entire area of the continental United States . The arid region begins very near the middle of the continent and stretches westward close to the Pacific . A line running through the western ends of the two Dakotas , Nebraska and Kansas and striking the Texas panhandle marks the eastern boundary of the section which requires artificial moisture in order to render it capable of cultivation with success . From that line onward over the Rocky mountains to within a few hundred miles of the Pacific , most of the country has a rain- . fall below the normal of agricultural regions . All that vast stretch of land comprising parts of sixteen states and territories and a maj...

AMERICANS SUCCEED [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

AMERICANS SUCCEED In the many reports and explanations educated observers are making to the governments and newspapers of Europe upon America s financial and industrial leadership we are beginning to find the broad truth which they have discovered underlying the - great mass of facts and statistics . First , it was the extent of our natural resources . Second , it was the push and vitality of a new people drawing upon the expertness of the old . Then it was the combination of politics and events which threw upon this land the majority of the passing advantages . Now , finally , the real truth is dawning and it has a brighter significance than all that has gone before . In brief , it recognizes that the source of American , strength is to be found in the democracy of effort and achievement and opportunity which exists here as It has never existed in any other place at any other period in the worlds history . Mr . Carnegie has been busy telling Englishmen and Scotchmen about it and co...

CHARACTER . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

CHARACTER . President Roosevelt in a recent address spoke in part as follows : There was no patent device for securing victory by force of arms forty years ago ; and there is no patent device for securing victory for the forces of righteousness in civil life now . In each case the ail-important factor was and is the character of the individual man . Good laws in the state , like a good organization in an army , are the expressions of national character . Leaders will be developed in military and in civil life alike ; and weapons and tactics change from generation to generation , as methods of achieving good government change in civic affairs ; but the fundamental qualities which make for good citizenship do not change any more than the fundamental qualities which make good soldiers . In the long run in the civil war the thing that counted for more than aught else was the fact that the average American had the fighting edge ; had within him the spirit which spurred him . on through t...

BREEDING BROOD SOWS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

BREEDING BROOD SOWS . One sometimes gets the impression that some farmers believe that in order to raise two litters each year a sow must be bred again within a few days after farrowing and while she is suckling her pigs . We have never practiced this but we can see no objection to it or why , with proper care and feed , a brood sow should not be able to rear her young during the period of her pregnancy the same as a mare or cow or other animal . The practice on Trebor Farm is to allow the sows to raise two litters each per year , breeding them about Nov . 20 and making them farrow about March 15 and breeding again about May 25 , thus making them farrow a second time about Sept . 15 . This allows a sow to suckle her pigs about ten weeks , when the pigs are weaned and the sows bred again in about three or five days for their next litter . This plan allows the young pigs to make a very satisfactory growth on the sow , and they are large , fat and thrifty when they come to be deprived ...

THE FARM HOME IS BEST . E . L Vincent , Maine , N . Y . The country Is full of men out on Strike . We read about these difficulties in the dispatches from New York , from- Chicago and from almost every city in the land . Sometimes we farmers wonder how men can live in the city without working , but we scarcely stop , after all , to Inquire into it very _ osely . We are busy abo ~ ut our farm Work—too busy to give more than a passing glance at these labor troubles . The fact is In such times , when the Industrial world ls torn with these . warfares between labor and capital , the farm Is about the best place in the world to be .

MAGNITUDE OF WORLD'S FAIR PRIZES . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 October 1903

MAGNITUDE OF WORLDS FAIR PRIZES . That the cash prizes offered in the live stock department of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition aggregate almost thirty per cent more than the tptal premiums of twelve leading state fairs and the International and American Royal shows combined might reasonably be doubted by experts in such matters , but such is the case . The cash prizes in Chief Coburn s department of the World s Fair are $ 55 , 300 greater than those offered by the fourteen largest live stock shows In the United States in 1902 . This interesting comparison was made at the recent meeting of the American Association of Live Stock Herd Book Secretaries in a paper on Live Stock Exhibits at the World s Fair , read by Hon . • George W .
