Miscellaneous [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 18 June 1898
Miscellaneous Let in the Air Professor Storer says : Every well-tilled field , or better yet , every will-tilled field provided with tile drains , is in . some sort a saltpetre yard . In such a field much of the manure and of the remains of plants , and of the hu , mus in the soil , will readily be converted into saltpetre ; and all experience teaches the great value of this substance considered as a manure . Indeed , when the soil is merely stirred , as with a hoe , or harrow , or cultiator , it must often happen that the formation of nitrates is promoted , and some part of the significance of the summer tillage of crops may be fairly attributed to an actual increase of fertility through changes brought about by the action of oxygen on organic matters in the soil . . But even if saltpetre he left , out of consideration it will still be true that the good effects produced by frequent plowing , harrowing and hoeing , and by draining also , result not merely from an alteration in the ...

The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
The Week Gen . Shatter s army of 16 , 000 men reached Santiago de Cuba at noon of Tuesday , and at this writing the troops are debarking from the transports and preparing to give battle to the Spanish forces occupying southeastern Cuba . There is a feeling that great and decisive events are to occur ; perhaps before this paper reaches our readers a bloody struggle will have taken place and the stars and stripes be waving from the summits of Santiago . Co-operating with Shatter s corps are the Cuban troops , 4 , 000 strong , under command of the aged but able Gen . Garcia . Here is a force of 20 , 000 as brave men as ever lived , backed up by the guns of one of the finest naval fleets , size considered , in the world . What the opposing force consists of in the way of men and armaments is not definitely known . The number of the enemy s troops in the vicinity of Santiago and Guantanamo is estimated variously at from 15 , 000 to 30 , 000 , the former number doubtless being nearly corr...

Concerning Our Forests [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
Concerning Our Forests Tornado , flood , earthquake nor Are , nor all combined , have created a tithe of the destruction which has followed the American woodman with his axe on his vandal march through the noble forests of this great land of ours . Nothing wickeder in history has ever been than his ruthless annihilation of the sheltering trees , which were ages in developing and to restore which must require ages more . What shall we do to in part repair the ruin he has wrought and save the remnants of the forests primeval ? The legislature of New York has recently passed An act to promote education in forestry and to encourage and provide for establishing a college of forestry at Cornell university , appropriating $ 10 , 000 for the purpose of starting the work . This is certainly an important step in the right direction . But it does not provide for the adoption of scientific methods in the management of the state s forests , which are still magnificent in sections . Dr . Fernow ,...
Prospective Prices for Wheat [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
Prospective Prices for Wheat The prospect for an enormous wheat crop was never brighter than at present , and it is not confined to our own country . Under the influence of these promising crop conditions wheat is now inclining to lower prices , and in some quarters it is felt that the bumper crop will destroy values , come market time . That we have no reason to expect the boom prices which Mr . Leiter , the war and an actual world-short-age combined to produce and maintain for a time is true , yet we are justified by existing conditions in looking for fair prices for every bushel grown in 1898 . The fact remains that there is practically no wheat in existence today which is invisible ; that is to say , the high prices developed by the big May deal brought every bushel of marketable grain to view . And when we consider that the surplus is unusually small ( Broomhall estimates that by August 1 there will be no old wheat ) , we may safely count upon fair prices even though the crop b...
Farmers' Experiment Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
Farmers Experiment Clubs In the Farmers voice last week appeared a contribution signed Experimenter , which should attract wide attention and induce immediate action along the line of experimentation among farmers . It is a truth that cannot be successfully disputed that the agriculture of the present is destructive to the extent that it is using the stored fertility of the soil without making adequate return for the loss . Let any one who is inclined to contradict this sit down and write out a list of the farms in his own neighborhood and then check off those which produce as much or more of any crop than they did when first brought into cultivation . If this is done it will be seen that the size of the list will not be greatly diminished , but if from such a . list we should erase those which produce much less than they once did there would be a vast difference . With improved methods and better varieties we get better crops from new land , but these same agencies sooner exhaust i...
Some Results of Co-operation [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
Some Results of Co-operation At a meeting of the immigration convention held recently at Winnipeg , Manitoba , Consul Hespler of the German empire gave a very interesting history of the Mennonite immigration to Manitoba , which suggests what an energetic people , working under voluntary co-operation along agricultural lines may accomplish . Mr . Hespler traced the movement from 1874 , when he conducted five Russian delegates of the Mennonites through the province and assisted in the negotiations which resulted in the dominion granting the reserves up to the present time . The 180 families who settled here in 1874 have increased by immigration and natural increase to 2 , 960 families numbering 20 , 000 souls . They have 235 , 160 acres under cultivation . Last year they harvested 3 ,- 500 , 000 bushels of grain exclusive of flax . Of flax they raised 950 , 000 bushels . They own 11 , 000 horses , 8 , 300 cows and 10 , 000 young cattle . In 1874-5-6 they borrowed $ 195 , 000 from the ...
The Praise of Our Friends [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 25 June 1898
The Praise of Our Friends The Washington ( D . C . ) Times refers to The Farmers Voice as one of America s greatest agricultural journals , and Mr . Soule of Farm , Field and Forum , Guthrie , Okla ., recently told us that one of his exchanges declared that The Farmers Voice and Farm , Field and Forum were the only agricultural journals in this country paying any attention to the real needs of the farmer . These generous words from our friends are fully appreciated . i • H . A . Heath , business manager of that excellent paper , The Kansas Farmer , told us of going to see an extensive advertiser in St . Louis . This gentleman told Mr . Heath that he considered The Farmers Voice the best paper he knew of . He said he was a very busy man and took but little time to read . When The Farmers Voice comes each week he reads its news pages and editorials and feels that he knows about all that is worth knowing of the news of the world . This from a man who has access to all the farm papers a...
