Death of Railroad Commis -sioner Davidson , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Death of Railroad Commissioner Davidson , The state was shocked by the death of Railroad Commissioner Davidson which occured the early part of last week at his home in Hull , Iowa , from apoplexy . His death will be widely regretted by a large circle of warm , personal friends . His place will no doubt be filled by the governor until the next general election , and the governor s appointment will go far toward making the appointee the successful candidate for nomination by the dominant party . Unusual significance will , therefore , be attached to the appointment . It will also involve the election of an additional railroad commissioner the coming fall , and the election of two commissioners means the election of a majority of the hoard and therefore the shaping of the railroad policy of the state . It will be well for the farmers , especially in the dominant party , to consider this fact carefully and be prepared to secure the nomination of men who will carry out the law in its spi...
Death of Frank Swallow . learn [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Death of Frank Swallow . learn Our readers will be grieved to of the death of Frank Swallow , son of the well known swine breeder , W . Z . Swallow , of Booneville , Iowa . He was thoroughly respected by all who knew him , and has been one of the prominent young stockmen of the state . When in the office a couple of months ago he was apparently in good health , but he was taken with consumption of the liver in December , which he believed at the time to be nothing more than rheumatism , and declined rapidly until the end , which came on the 15 th of March . The sympathies of a very large circle of acquaintances will go out to his father and mother who are thus left without one of their main sources of support in their declining years . It is particularly sad to see a young man of such promise taken away before he reached his twenty-third year .
The Early Spring , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
The Early Spring , -There is a striking contrast between the springs of lfc- JT and 1898 . On the 15 th of March last year there was two feet of snow in North Dakota and Minnesota , from four to six inches over the greater part of Montana , from four to eighteen inches over eastern South Dakota and southern Minnesota , and from one to five inches over the southern portions of Wisconsin and Michigan , these sections being now practically free from snow . There was a light covering of snow on the 15 th of March over the northern Rocky Mountain Region , and from two to eighteen inches less in northern New England than on March 7 th last year , and from one to four inches less over the upper Lake Region except the eastern portion of northern Wisconsin , where there was slightly more . Over a limited area in the interior of New England there is from two to seven inches more snow than on March 14 , 1897 . In short , the country on March 15 th was free from snow except in the limited porti...
Don't Stint the Clover Seed . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Dont Stint the Clover Seed . Cheap as clover seed is now , no man should hesitate to sow it , and sow liberally , even If he expects to plow the ground up next year . He will not lose anything if he sows clover with every bushel of spring wheat , oats , or barley that he sows this spring . When clover seed is worth ten dollars per bushel we would not recommend this course . We believe it would pay farmers who have had experience , but we would not ask new beginners to hazard that much money . Cheap as it is now , we believe _ in *«„ G-mbbhui Mathlncmade by the Milne Mfg . Co , iVimmuiilli , IU it will pay every man to sow clover with his spring grain . Neither should he stint the amount of seed per acre . It will only cost him about forty cents per acre to sow clover this year . If he secures a stand , that clover will give him more nitrogen than ten loads of manure per acre , and he can not haul the manure from his barnyard for that money . If he will allow it to grow the second ye...
Objections to our Grass Mix -tures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Objections to our Grass Mixtures . We are greatly amused some times at the objections that are filed against the grass seed mixtures that we recommend . One farmer says : I have gone over the field after sowing even less than you recommend , and I believe that if one-third of that grass seed grows I will have more of a stand than I want . He has been farming on land used to clover and understands how to sow it Another farmer says : Why dont you advise men to sow more acres of clover and plenty of seed per acre ? You recommend eight pounds of clover seed per acre , or about four quarts . I sow a peck , or just twice as much as you recommend . When I sow what you recommend I dont get a stand . How do you cover it ? Oh , I sow it just before the last harrowing . We are free to say that the mixture -we recommend is full heavy seeding , unnecessarily heavy for the farmer who has lands accustomed to clover growing and who knows how to get it deep enough to secure moisture . We are free to...

The Effects of Pooling . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
The Effects of Pooling . In its attempt to awaken a slumbering state to the evils that threatened it from the passage of the proposed pooling bill in Congress , Wallaces Farmer has stood almost alone , a sort of John the Baptist voice crying in the wilderness . The man who is contending for a great principle can afford to stand alone for a long time and endure the anathemas of those who in one way or another expect to profit by the enactment of iniquity by law . Wallaces Farmer , however , is not by any means alone . The subject is attracting the attention of the great commercial bodies who are as vitally interested in transportation as are the farmers themselves , and sooner or later help will come from organizations which now appear to be silent and which we feared never could be induced to speak upon the subject . For example , Mr . George F . Stone , secretary of the Chicago Board of Trade , delivered an address before the Illinois Grain Dealers Association last Friday , March 1...
The Universal Weeder . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
The Universal Weeder . The Illustration on this page represents an Implement that has come into great popular favor . It is better known in the East than in the West , and it will be regarded as Invaluable wherever It is given a fair trial . The illustration shows the plan of the w-eeder and the manner in which It is operated . For the purpose of thoroughly destroying young weeds , and , nt the same time , leaving a mulch of dry dirt on the top of the ground , and thus conserving moisture , It is the finest implement of the kind we know- of . It is easily handled with one horse , and . as It is sold at a very low price , it ought to be found on a great many Western farms this season . It Is delivered free on board cars at either Chicago or St . Haul . For prices , see advertisement , which appears in this issue , and please mention Wallaces Farmer when ordering .
Our First Page Illustration . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Our First Page Illustration . We present on our first page this week an Illustration of the well-known Short-horn cow . Red Rose of Strathearn , and three of her calves . The line under the illustration to the effect that these will be Included in the sale by Mr . Edwards next week Is misleading , ns the calves shown have already gone out to other herds . The old cow , however , will be Included , and is No . 9 of the catalogue . Red Rose of Strathearn was bred by John Miller ., of Ontario , Canada , and was bought by Luther Adams , of Storm Lake . Iowa , at a time when the Lake Side herd probably contained the best collection of Scotch cattle in the Western country . Her calf . Knight of the Thistle , blimp . Craven Knight , was used as a herd bull at Lake Side for several years , and when the herd was dispersed , in 1 S 93 . when the clouds were hanging very low over the cattle Industry , he brought . 0 . 00 .

Rare and Valuable Seeds and Plants . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
Rare and Valuable Seeds and Plants . While Secretary Wilson has not directly antagonized Congress on the seed question , he is doing much toward restoring the original wise intent of the law . He dispatched Professor Hansen last year to Europe with instructions to purchase rare and valuable seeds . Professor Hansen has traveled through eastern Russia , trans-Cau-casia , Russian Turkestan , western China , and Siberia , and has purchased three carloads of seeds to be distributed to state experiment stations and others . The object mainly in view is to secure seeds which on account of their native environment will be able to resist drouth and heat . The following describes briefly the nature of the purchase : 1 . A native alfalfa from Central Asia , with greatly superior power of resisting drouth and heat 2 . Muskmelons from the great Eastern Plains superior in quality to the American , some of them keeping all winter . 3 . Vladimir cherries of East Russia , capable of enduring a temp...
A Failure . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 March 1898
A Failure . To WAI _ C _ I _ u _ m : Two years ago this winter I saw in some of the agricultural papers an article recommending the plan of sowing rye with oats in the spring for fall pasture after the oats were harvested . It was claimed that the rye would not make much growth until after harvest and would not head , but stool out and wait for winter , and make excellent pasture . The plan looked feasible and rye being a very hardy plant seemed likely to act as above described , and as I had need of the pasture for my hogs , I decided to sow an eight-acre piece near the barn . It was in a shape to fence hog-tight easily and I anticipated a fine fall pasture for my hogs . The piece had been in corn the year before ; part of it had been put in shock and part was stalk ground , and it was good , strong land . I sowed two and one-half , or , perhaps , three bushels of oats , with a little wheat and one bushel of rye per acre , cultivated the part that had been cut off , and plowed the ...
