DO YOU GROW CORN ? ¦ -, - - • * *¦ ¦_* i _ V . - - . . HERE IS SOME FREE SEED FROM THE EDITOR OF FARM PRESS READ THIS STORY AND HIS OFFER I WAS born on a farm and am still a farmer . My occupation as a boy at eight waste rjde , the head ^ orse . or-Mule , which , with four others , dragged an old McCormick reaper around a forty-acre field . My brother wove , my father raked off , and five farm hands , stripped to the waist , followed _ , and bound the sheaves by hand . The reaper was painted blue and it weighed a ton . My first own money was earned dropping corn for a neighbor . -He and a hired man followed and covered it with a hoe . My most distinct dread , as a boy of ten , was husking time , when I used to follow the middle row while two brothers husked two rows on each side of the wagon . The job lasted till Christmas , lasted till the frost bit my nose and fingers , but we husked corn , real corn , big corn , the biggest corn in the county , for my father was the best farmer ....

INTERNATIONAL LIVE STOCK ««> EXHIBITION ^ mj AT CHICAGO gffl [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 January 1909
INTERNATIONAL LIVE STOCK ««&gt; EXHIBITION ^ mj AT CHICAGO gffl AT the end of the long aisle the visftor stopped and glanced back over the multitude of fat , sleek-looking cattle . What s the use ? he asked . Why have they gathered this host of cattle here from the ends of the earth simply to boom Chicago as a live-stock center and to line the pockets of tire transportation , men and the hotelkeepers ? What do the exhibitors get out of this that repays them for their time and expense in coming ; and , more than that , of what possible value is ft to the average , everyday farmer and stockman ? For the visitor , you see , was a very skeptical sort of a person and had to be shown . Fortunately there were a number of persons in his vicinity who appeared willing , and even eager , to show him . They crowded around him , a half dozen of them , representing the several types most interested in the show . There was a fur-coated ranchman straight from the plains , an exhibitor whose...
THE AMERICAN FARMER IN CANADA [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 January 1909
THE AMERICAN FARMER IN CANADA By BEUCB BARTON THE present generation is witnessing the invasion of The Last West . Many wonderful sights are doubtless reserved for our descendants which we shall never see , but they will not know the spectacle of thousands of families breaking up their homes in the East , casting off the old ties , and moving on to make a new beginning in the rich , virgin lands . The picturesque conditions of a frontier town will be only a matter of story to them ; they will not realize the joy of those who have gone out of the struggle and failure of the old conditions to make a fresh start in the new . The day of free land which is any good is past , and of cheap land , is passing . What is left is in Canada , and it is being taken up with wonderful rapidity . The present invasion of Canada is one of the most remarkable movements of history . The Americans are leading In it , going over the border at the rate of a hundred thousand a year . It is the children of t...
AFARMER'SVIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 January 1909
AFARMERSVIEWS O NION seed is worthless after the second year . The only way to keep a thing alive is to set it to work . Napoleon built an empire on the grain crop of France , but if he had first run the grain through the breweries , there would have been no foundation for an empire . i i &lt; Thar s more in the man than in the Ian , so runs the Southern prov erb ; even a hard field may produce well if the right man does the cultivating . The farmers of the United States spend about $ 55 , 000 , 000 annually for fertilizers . It doesn t pay to be too stingy with a farm ; yon must give in order to get You can t raise melons by lying in the hammock and dreaming about them , and character , as well as melons , needs cultivation . An Alabama man wanted to sell his 400-acre farm for $ 2 , 000 , but couldn t find a purchaser . Under ex pert advice he planted it all in cowpea hay . He sold $ 8 , 400 worth of hay from one crop and made a net profit of twice the sum he had valued the...

ALL AROUND THE FARM mmmmmmmmmum * m m me »^ e * mt £ «« sss A WBXL-BA 1 A 1 CCED FASH THAT PAYS One of the well-balanced farms in Missouri is that owned by Robert Horning , near Springfield . Mr . Homing s father purchased the farm 12 or IS years ago for $ 8 , 000 , going in debt for it and paying out in a few years . When the father moved to town his son Robert remained on the farm . He has fine herds of Hereford cattle , pure bred Poland China hogs and Southdown sheep , and his poultry is second to none . Mr . Horning keeps a hired man with a family and pays him good wages the year round . There is a silo on the place which he fills brimful every year . He uses all the up-to-date labor saving machinery , has barns and sheds for everything and follows a system which keeps him ahead of the season with his work . A rotation scheme he practices is corn after clover with small grain and clover following corn . HOW TO CURE PORK Here is the government recipe for salt pork : Rub each piec...

IHE DAIRY FOR PROFIT [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 January 1909
IHE DAIRY FOR PROFIT WDTIS DAISY FEEDING By H . A FrankHn To get quantities of milk I find it necessary to feed liberal quantities of protein . Formerly I tried to supply it by growing clover and buying bran . Of late the price of bran is away beyond its value , and I find it impossible on my limited acreage to grow clover enough , so I am experimenting with alfalfa as a forage crop , and I am carefully feeling of cot-ton-seed and linseed meals for concen trates . The greatest help in supplying feed for my cows is the silo , but I don t feed such large quantities as some do . I read of 40 pounds a day for each cow , but while I don t feel competent to criticize such heavy feeding of one thing , my experience in keeping a small herd of thirty cows in good condition leads me into providing a good deal of variety . I even go so far as to keep one mow for mixed timothy and redtop hay because the cows tell me by their actions that they thoroughly enjoy the taste of it after living on sil...

AWAY IN THE LEAD FOR 1909 DE LAVAL CREAM SEPARATORS The year that is past was one of unusual interest and importance in a Cream Separator way . Twelve months ago we announced to cow owners the introduction of a complete new line of DE LAVAL farm and dairy sizes of machines , marking another great move forward in the development of the Cream Separator . The enthusiastic welcome given these improved machines by buyers everywhere exceeded even our great expectations and nearly carried us off our feet . Orders came so thick and fast that stock was soon exhausted and the DE LAVAL factory was forced to run day and night from March to July and continued withincreased force on full time throughout the entire year . Notwithstanding the universal business depression DE LAVAL sales for 1908 were over 50 * greater than in 1907 . The new machines simply swept the field of all separator honors andmade the year a notable one in separator history . Practical experience in the actual sale and use of...
rounro [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 January 1909
rounro TUHWING $ 5 COWS HVTO EGGS Hilda Richmond , one of the contributors to the Farm Press , tells of a plan for making the poultry pay which worked well . She writes : In lumping off a lot of live stock when a neighbor moved away , a worthless old cow came on the place in poor condition . The butcher offered $ 5 for her , which seemed a fair price , but a better plan of disposing of her suggested itself . She was killed to furnish meat for the flock of 100 hens . This was in January , when not an egg was gathered because of the cold weather . The meat was carefully frozen and laid away to be used in daily feeds with scraps and grain . In a very short time the eggs began to pour into the egg basket at a lively rate , and sold for 35-and 40 cents per dozen to people who were willing to pay good prices for new-laid eggs . No record was kept at first of the number of eggs received , but after many had been sold and it was found that the neighbors were getting no eggs , a little accou...
