Farmers and Literature [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Farmers and Literature The American farmer is becoming an omnivorous reader of agricultural literature , if we are to accept the figures of the increase in the amount of matter distributed by the department of agriculture . The figures are interesting . Prior to 1894 the total number of copies of Farmers bulletins issued by the department was 540 , 000 . In 1894 the number issued was 278 , 500 ; 1895 , 1 , 567 , 000 ; 1896 , 1 , 891 , 000 , and in 1897 the splendid total of 2 , 387 , 000 was reached . George William Hill , superintendent of the division of publications , says the demand for publications of the department continues to increase steadily and rapidly , far more rapidly than the growth of the population . This is most gratifying . We need more and more literature concerning the great fundamental industry . Advance in mechanics and in many of the sciences have transformed them and transformed life . But in some sections of our own enlightened country the most primitive me...

Catch Crops [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Catch Crops The excessive rainfall that we are now having makes it more than likely that we shall have a very dry spell later in the summer , and this should lead us to provide for the needs of the live stock at that time by arranging to provide them with an abundance of green feed . • The fields now look as if they could never again become dry and the luxurious growth of pastures seem to promise an abundant supply of feed for months to come , but this appearance is like to prove deceitful . We have but a certain amount of rainfall in any year , and if this comes early in the season we may expect a diminished quantity later on and should be ready for it . A few weeks of moderate rainfall followed by a period of rainless weather such as we usually have in the late summer will see the pastures eaten to the ground and the live stock growing lean from lack of feed . In many corn fields in Illinois and other states in the present rain belt there will be considerable patches which will be...
Moving Out on Right Lines [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Moving Out on Right Lines Announcement is made that the agricultural college of the University of Illinois will arrange its course cf instruction for special study of the various problems involved in the cultivation of the sugar beet and the manufacture of beet sugar . This is a step which must meet with the approval of every friend of progressive agriculture . From this time forth the culture of the sugar beet is destined to become with each year of increasing importance to American agriculture , and that an institution of learning devoted to agricultural education in the greatest agricultural state thus takes up this great work not only reflects credit upon the men at its head , but augurs well for the future development of a great industry . It will be noted that the various problems involved in the cultivation of the sugar beet and the manufacture of beet sugar are to be in the curriculum . These problems , then , will have to do not only with the purely agricultural work of gro...
Judges and Railroad Passes [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Judges and Railroad Passes Not long ago Milton H . Smith , president of the Louisville &amp; Nashville railroad , was called upon to testify beforethe interstate commerce commission regarding certain phases of railroad management and procedure . Replying to the inquiry as to the number of judges who rode upon free passes over his lines of road , he replied that he would have to refer to the company s attorney for the information , but added : I think Mr . Baxter ( the company s attorney ) has been of the opinion , and I fear most of our attorneys have been of the same opinion , that it is not well to appear before a judge unless he has a pass if he wants one . In other words , they proceed upon the idea that if a judge can afford to take a pass they can afford to give it . If the members of the judiciary who travel upon passes given them by railroad officials have been in doubt as to the position their acceptance of the courtesy placed them in , so far as the railroad men lo...

Baling &amp; W ^^^ P ^^ I ^ f ^^ THE evils from which the world suffers most do not spring from lack of industry and thrift , nor from ignorance , nor from intemperance in the use of intoxicants , but f : om mental indolence and impatience . To overcome the effects of these two vices in men and women is the great task of those who seek to better the world . In this as in all similar problems the first maxim is , Physician heal thyself . The trouble is not altogether with the world at large , not altogether with other . people , but we two who are at this moment face to face—the writer of this article and the reader— suffer from these defects in ourselves , and are less able to help others because of their existence in ourselves . Mental indolence is the disinclination to think . I am quite convinced that there are many sufficiently well informed to take effective part in the affairs of th...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Agriculture Seed Selection There is no other way to improve the yield of crops equal to seed selection just as the crop comes to maturity . Great things have been accomplished by scientific crossing and hybridizing , but nine times out of ten the most successful novelty is an accidental variety which some sharp-sighted grower has noticed in his crop and saved from mixture with the general crop . The famous Erie raspberry was found growing in a fence corner by a friend of the writer , and an acquaintance found the Lucretia dewberry growing wild in Virginia , as he was marching along with his regiment during the civil war . He made a mental note of the plant and place and after the war was over went back and got the first Lucretia dewberry plant and made a fortune out of it . The bush Lima bean , the Cupid sweet pea , the advance tomato and hundreds of other varieties of improved fruits , vegetable or field crops have been found by accident and saved because the finder was alert and r...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Garden and Orchard Thinning Fruit We have referred in these columns to the advisability of thinning fruit to increase the size and improve the quality of the yield , and below we give some of the results attained at the various experiment stations . ¦ At the New Jersey station it was noticed that bunches of currants were rarely perfect , many of the berries dropping before becoming ripe . The tips of the blossom clusters were cut from alternate bushes just before they came into bloom with very beneficial results .. The clipped bushes produced more fruit , better clusters and larger fruit than those thatwere not clipped . At the New York Cornell station blackberries and raspberries were found to improve when the bushes were so prunned as to cut off a portion of the berries , and this is probably the most effective way of thinning these fruits . The Wisconsin station tried thinning the fruits on Japanese plum trees with good effect , the fruits being thinned to two inches apart , and ...

Live Stock and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Live Stock and Dairy American Mutton A correspondent of the National Stockman sets up the old cry that American mutton is not as good as that produced in England . This is good evidence , that the writer of the article does not know much about the sheep business . For a good many years we have been told that American beef and American mutton and other things American are not as good as similar articles produced . in England , but these were fairy tales which long ago were relegated to the age of tradition . It has been demonstrated that American products are as good as any that can be produced in England or any other country . We have just as rich pastures , just as skillful breeders and just as pure air and water as there is on earth , and having all these we lack nothing to produce good beef , mutton or butter . The fact that American mutton and beef is just as good as any produced in England has been proven in an amusing manner . This is by the action taking by English stockmen t...

Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Poultry and Bees Young Ducks vs . Young Chickens At the Michigan Experiment Station experiments have been carried on for more than a year to determine some unsettled points in poultry-keeping . . One of &gt; these related to the comparative growth and cost to the pound of young ducks and young chickens . It will be remembered that the Farmers Voice has said on more than one occasion that ducklings were more profitable for market than broilers , and the experiments at the Michigan station shows Just how great the difference is . June 6 , 1897 , thirty-nine ducklings two weeks old were put in a brooder , with yard attached , to be fed against the same number of chicks of the same age . At this time the ducklings weighed thirteen and one-fourth pounds and the chicks seven and one-half pounds . The feed of the ducklings consisted of middlings , corn meal and bran , with the necessary green feed and grit to keep them healthy . The green feed consisted of lettuce and the grass tha...

111 health is a luxury that only ^ i » the rich can afford , and that no one can enjoy . Every woman is not so situated that she can be an interesting invalid , or rather , an uninteresting invalid , for there never was an interesting one . The woman who suffers from weakness and disease of the distinctly feminine organs is certain to become an invalid . No woman can suffer in this way and be a healthy , happy , amiable wife and a competent mother . Troubles of this nature sap the strength , rack the nerves , paint lines of suffering upon the face , destroy the temper , make the once bright eyes dull and the once active brain sluggish , and transform a vivacious woman into a weak , sickly invalid . The one sure , speedy , permanent cure for all disorders of the distinctly feminine nature is Dr . Pierce s Favorite Prescription . It acts directly on the delicate and important organs concerned , and makes _ them strong , healthy , vigorous and elastic . It cures the internal ulceration...
