To Gobble the Tobacco [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

To Gobble the Tobacco P ROM a recent dispatch from Havana it appears that American capital , represented through twenty New York banks , is seeking to control Cuba s output of tobacco . This enterprise has long been under consideration , but until now no serious attempt has ever been made to organize , such a syndicated A purchase is made of the cisrar and cigarette factories . This involves not only an immense direct outlay in which the banks seem to have the control but . also , an apparent reaching out towards the enormous tobacco manufacture of the island of Cuba . In normal times of peace and prosperity , Cuba produces half a million bales of tobacco , which will in the next five years , it is predicted , be increased . at least one-half . The average value of a bale is conservatively estimated at $ 50 , which gives the island a gross output worth $ 25 * 000 . 000 , which will be increased to $ 35 ,- 000 . 000 , and possibly more . This gives some indication of the enlargement ...

Shall We Have a Polygamist in Congress ? [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

Shall We Have a Polygamist in Congress ? 1 i > tne interest or common decency as well as law , we srlirtiv give space to the following : fa » uiy The answer lies with the American people . Mormonism has openly defied the government by electing Brigham H . Roberts , a confessed , present-day polygamist , to Congress . George Q . Cannon , polygamist , held his seat as delegate from Utah from 1872 to 1882 , largely by falsely testifying that he was not a polygamist . Roberts may easily be seated unless popular indignation finds its voice in vehement protest against the national recognition of this monster iniquity , which is one object sought in his election . Substantially the following petition was unanl- mously adopted by the Union Ministers Meeting of Cleveland on December 12 , 1898 , and by Cleveland Presbytery on December 13 ; It is most earnestly : urged that every church , club and other adult organization of suitable character in the United States adopt these or-sim...

The Science of Money [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

The Science of Money NO one can charge Alexander Del Mar with a lack of thoroughness . The first edition of this important work was issued as long ago as 1885 . The attention and time given to the study of the general subject of money is evinced by the different books he has published and by the reliability of his facts and figures . One remarkable and . valuable feature of the present book is the full bibliography published in connection with the introduction . It recommends to be read in connection with this book and the previous works on the precious metals and money a long list of books indicating how they may be found in the British-Museum library . These are in different languages and number in all 123 separate treatises . To indicate the thoroughness of the work historically and in all practical uses and applications one has only to glance at the headings of the twenty chapters . We refer to some of the more significant . In the first chapter a sketch is given of the exchange...

Wheat Supply in Cape Colony ' [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

Wheat Supply in Cape Colony THE question of an adequate supply of food , products is always present in South Africa . The country will never be able , to raise all . the cereals it will . use . for the tillable land suitable for this purpose is limited , even with irrigation as extreme and as effectual as is anticipated in the irrigation measures now before Parliament . There is never a . large supply of wheat on hand , and thp future-require-ments are-: not anticipated . * This country largely depends upon the United States .

The trip planned extended • • ¦ . through ; the three northern tiers of counties from Manhattan west to the state line . ¦ ¦ ¦ Observations were made In twenty-seven counties . Thousands of acres of alfalfa are grown in the regions visited , and the alfalfa grower is almost universally a thrifty farmer . The ideal conditions of soil and moisture for the growth of the plant are found in the valleys of streams where sheet water is obtained at a depth of twenty feet or less , and where the soil is a porous sandy loam with a permeable subsoil . I am convinced , however , that alfalfa will grow and give remunerative -returns upon as many varieties of soil as . any other Cultivated plant . . J . E . Fitzgerald ,...

?»» Sorghum for Summer Forage [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

?»» Sorghum for Summer Forage By J . M . Bice . RECENT inquiries from New York and Alabama indicate the widespread interest in sorghum crops , which have their special home in the warm , dry southwest . They are being tested in all sections and even where corn is a standard crop sorghum is a good supplement , whether the sweet varieties sown for hay or drilled for fodder , green or dry ; or the nonsweet varieties like Kafir drilled like corn only thicker for both grain and fodder ., ¦ These inquiries are only samples of those received almost daily-which I answer personally , and as often through-the press as public interest demands . Where their , growing is yet an experiment I would advise the planting of the generally known Amber sorghum for summer feed . There are other varieties like Folgers and Colman that I prefer , but the PICKING STRAWBERRIES IN ARKANSAS Amber in sorghum is like Ben Davis in apples and Concords in grapes—succeeds best over a large extent of country and is sa...

How Shall the Cotton Raiser Get Out of Debt ? [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 26 January 1899

How Shall the Cotton Raiser Get Out of Debt ? By G . H . Turner . IN order to find the true solution of above query , we would probably both simplify and expedite matters by putting still another one , viz : —How did he get In ? In by far too many instances , we fear that the debt was contracted in the purchase of provisions , which could undoubtedly have been raised cheaper right at home . Where this is the case , we know of no better plan than that pursued by some of our farming brethren in Illinois , who determined , among themselves that they would allow nothing to go on their tables that was not raised right at home on their individual farms . We cannot help but believe that this was a wise conclusion for them to arrive at , and , at the same time , we believe that the example set by our economical Illinois brethren could be followed fully as advantageously by hundreds of the cotton raisers of the sunny south ; certain it is that —aside from our coffee—it would entail no very g...

Breadfruit Trees THIS remarkable tree is one of the most important gifts of nature to the . inhabitants of the islands of the Pacific ocean and the Indian Archipelago , its fruit supplying their principal food and its inner bark a considerable part of their clothing . while its timber and its milky juice also are used for economical purposes . It is a tall , rather slender tree , often forty to fifty feet high , . with no branches for half its height .
