The Nebraska Maximum Rate Law . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
The Nebraska Maximum Rate Law . The supreme court has passed on the maximum rate law , adopted by the legislature of Nebraska some years ago , and the decision , as was expected , is in favor ot the railroads . The following is a summary of the opinion by Judge Harlan , as given to the press : 1 . A railroad corporation is a person within the meaning of the Fourteenth amendment , declaring that no State shall deprive any person of property without due process of law , nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws . 2 . A state enactment or regulation made under the authority of a state enactment establishing such rates for the transportation of persons or property by railroad as will not admit of the carrier earning such compensation as under all the circumstances is just to it and to the public would deprive such carrier of its property without due process of law and deny to it the equal protection of the laws , and would therefore be repugnant to ...
The Agricultural College . __ [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
The Agricultural College . __ The session of the Iowa Agricultural college begins this year under unusually favorable circumstances . There are one hundred students in the long course , and there will be two hundred during the year in the agricultural and dairy courses . Professor Craig s live stock class starts out with forty in the fresuman class . No better evidence could be furnished of the wisdom of the change in the management which we urged so strenuously some years ago . Professor Wilson laid the foundation ; Professors Curtiss , Craig , and others are building thereon , and tbe inevitable result will be an improvement in Iowa agriculture in the years to come such as has never been realized in the years that are past The education of the college is becoming more and more practical every year and commending itself to level-headed farmers as the right sort of an education for their sons .
The Velvet Bean , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
The Velvet Bean , We notice some of our exchanges are giving considerable space to the velvet bean , a new variety of bean hailing from Florida . We have received a sample of the beans , and singularly enough the same extravagant statements as to its value for northern latitudes which we have consigned to the waste basket We have no doubt this bean will prove of value in the Gulf states , but it seems foolish to talk about a bean having any special value fc 1 the Northern states which will not mature seed north of Louisana .
To Water the Garden with a Rake . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
To Water the Garden with a Rake . Professor L . H . Bailey , of Cornell University , in one of his publications intended for the instruction of the common schools of New York in agriculture , explains in a very few words , fully within the reach of the child s comprehension , a large part of the science of farming , as follows : I wonder if you have a watering pot ? If you have , PUT IT WHERE YOU CANNOT FIND IT , for we are going to water this garden with a rake ! We want you to learn , in this little garden , the first great lesson in farming—how to save __ , e water in the soil . If you learn that much this summer , you will know more than many old farmers do . You know that the soil is moist in the spring when you plant the seeds . Where does this moisture go to ? It dries up—goes off into the air . If we could cover up the soil with something , we should prevent the moisture from drying up . Let us cover it with a layer of loose , dry earth ! We will make this covering by raking...
Practical Farmers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
Practical Farmers . A correspondent , who has received a sample copy of Wallaces Farmer , writes us that the paper is well enough but he is a practical farmer and has no time to read when farm work commences , and therefore thinks he will not subscribe just now ; that he does not believe much in book farming anyway . Another farmer drops in and says : Our folks were not raised on the farm and we made a good many mistakes in beginning , but since we have been taking your advice on clover we have doubled our yield of grain per acre . This man would not think for a moment of doing without his favorite agricultural paper . Which of these men is the practical farmer ? We are greatly amused at the egotism of some men who call themselves practical farmers . They assume that they and their fathers before them too learned all that is known or can be learned with regard to the business which deals with more complex and diffiult problems than any other business followed by mortal man , a busin...
"Feeds and Feeding . " [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
Feeds and Feeding . Professor Henry , Dean of the Agricultural Department of the University of Wisconsin , has recently issued from the press a work which should be in the library of every farmer who is engaged in feeding any kind of live stock . It is entitled Feeds and Feeding : A Handbook for the Student and Stockman . Prof . Henry has condensed in this book in clear and forcible English , the result of the studies of a lifetime . The most of it , and all the practical part of it , is written in language easily within the comprehension of any intelligent farmer . The student will find it invaluable in pursuing his studies , whether at home or in the agricultural college . We do not know of any book heretofore written that has as much really valuable matter in the same space . It is a neatly bound volume of 650 pages , with definitions of all the unusual and scientific words , and a full and complete index . Price $ 2 . 00 by mail or express , charges prepaid . It can be ordered t...

What Was Wrong ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
What Was Wrong ? When a man starts in in dead earnest to master the art and science of fanning , he is very likely to make iiiistakes . The man who does not believe there is either art or science , but luck , in farming , makes the same mistakes and charges them to bad luck . Men of the first class frequently ask us what was wrong . I did the best I knew how , but some way your improved farming does not pan out For example , what was the matter with my sheep ? Some of the lames came dead and some of my ewes died uefore lambing . What did you feed them ? Oh , I fed them well ; gave them corn , corn fodder , and timothy hay ; all they wanted . The fact is , they were fat I looked for 125 per cent of Iambs and got 80 . What was wrong ? There was a good deal wrong . Your ewes are simply lamb factories and they need muscle-forming food . You dm not give it to them , but fatformers all the way through . What then , should I have given them ? Clover hay , corn fodder , oats if you had them...
Lamb Versus Mutton . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
Lamb Versus Mutton . One of the most striking changes in public taste Is the preference for lamb instead of mutton . The result of this change is the marketing of millions of lambs which under former conditions would have been kept to increase the supply of wool and the sheep stock of the country . This change of taste , with all its effects on the business of the shepherd , is not peculiar to this country . One of our Scottish exchanges notices the wonderful change In the same direction that has taken place there since 1888 . Prior to that time it was unusual to sell the Scottish black face sheep under less than three or four years old . In that year , for the first time , prizes were awarded by the Highland and Agricultural Society Show for what are called shearling black face wethers , that is wethers over a year old , and the wethers in the ordinary class were reduced from four shear to three shear as a limit The young class was so successful in 1889 that the prize money was con...
An Interesting Experiment in Transportation . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
An Interesting Experiment in Transportation . The Great Northern railroad of Scotland has inaugurated a new departure in supplying farmers along its line with a market and the cities along its lines with a supply of farm produce . It runs a train in connection with its passenger service . It has established a freight rate for farm produce somewhat unique . It charges on butter , eggs , cheese , cream , dressed poultry , and vegetables from any station on this one hundred miles of railroad to Aberdeen not to exceed 8 c for 14 pounds , 10 c for between 14 and 28 pounds , and 12 c for between 28 and 56 pounds , entirely irrespective of distance . The man who ships one hundred miles gets the same rate as the man who ships ten . In other words , it is a flat rate from any station on the entire line . This includes delivery in the cities for the usual distance , but does not include collections . The outcome will be watched with a good deal of interest While it would be scarcely practicab...

The New Railroad Commis -sioner . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
The New Railroad Commissioner . Governor Shaw last week appointed Col . D . J . Palmer to fill until after the next general election the vacancy in the commission caused by the death of Railroad Commissioner Davidson . Col . Palmer is a farmer of Washington County , a soldier of enviable record , and has been active in church and Sabbath school work during the twentyfive years that we have known him . Prom the standpoint of Integrity and moral character , the appointment is unexceptionable . In making this appointment , we are fully convinced that Governor Shaw has sought to serve the people of the state to the best of his judgment and ability . He has a habit of using his own best judgment and can not be swerved from what he considers the line of duty . Nevertheless , before the appointment and after it as well , there was and is a feeling that corporation influences were behind it even if they did not appear on the surface , and for that reason we did not favor the appointment . N...
The Board of Control . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
The Board of Control . The most important piece of legislation enacted by the General Assembly of Iowa at the present session has been the act placing all the educational , reformatory , and charitable institutions of the state under a board of control consisting of three persons appointed by the governor and ratified by a committee appointed by the lieutenant-gov-ernor . We called the attention of our readers to this movement at the beginning of the session . For a time we feared that the law might be so drawn as to create a political machine of sufficient potency to control the politics of the state . The objectionable features have been removed and we do not know of any important piece of legislation in recent years that has enlisted the active support of a large proportion of the members of the legislature . The bill discontinues all the boards of trustees , directors , etc ., belonging to all the institutions except the educational , namely , the Agricultural College , State Un...
Alfalfa . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 1 April 1898
Alfalfa . A new correspondent from Hamilton County , Iowa , wishes to know when to plant alfalfa , the length the crop should attain before the first cutting , the length of time between the cuttings , and the amount of hay , rather a formidable lot of questions . Unless he has land adapted to alfalfa , of which we are in doubt in Hamilton County , he would do as well not to bother with it If he can grow clover , which he can with good success in that county , it is not worth his while bothering with alfalfa . Alfalfa requires a dry , rather light soil , with a porous subsoil , where the roots can reach permanent molsure within twenty feet . It does well in some counties on the loose soil in southwestern Iowa , and if we had no clover it would be worth cultivating in many portions of central and eastern Iowa . For the benefit of subscribers in these sections we answer the questions . We would sow on well prepared ground from the middle to the last of April twenty-five pounds of seed...
