Whv Fruit Growers Lose [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
Whv Fruit Growers Lose Under the caption , Fruit-Growers Have Lost , last Sunday s Chicago Times-Herald refers to tho losses sustained by the strawberry growers of southern Michigan . It seems to think that the problem is to be solved by the invention of some process for keeping strawberries from spoiling for sixty hours . The Times-Herald says : The fruit ripens with a rush . It is singularly perishable . It is hurried to market with the utmost • expedition . From every farm come mountains of • crates filled and fragrant with strawberries . The result is that the Chicago market is glutted with the : fruit . Prices go down to a minimum . Loads of fine berries were offered last week at 15 cents a crate . It Is disastrous to the farmer . But if the same methods were followed in the marketing of fruit that now obtain , 60 nor 160 hours would help matters very much , for the berries would be steadily ripening just the same , and there would be as many to dispose of at the end of one per...
The Change and How to Meet It [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
The Change and How to Meet It Commissioner of Agriculture Lee of Louisiana , in the course of a recent address to young men , said : Young men , in taking up your life s work in agriculture , you cannot follow in the footsteps of your fathers . With the lights before them they have done their parts well . Good prices prevailed through the greater parts of their lives , competition was not so sharp , and life was easier . But now , new conditions have arisen , a new order of things is upon us . Low prices , sharp competition , etc ., have shorn agriculture of its former profits , and many of our older men , whose heads are white with the frosts of many winters , before they will have learned to adjust themselves to these changed conditions , perhaps , will have passed off the stage of action , with the problems still unsolved , with their solution resting upon you . They had not the opportunities that you have—no agricultural colleges , no experiment stations , no departments of agri...
Co-Operation Among Fruit Growers [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
Co-Operation Among Fruit Growers F RUIT GROWERS everywhere recognize the inefficiency of the present methods of selling fruit , and have been seeking for a better one by which they may receive , the full value of their product and get the best price possible at the minimum expense for handling . Long experience has taught them that shipping to commission merchants leads to losses in various ways , sometimes because of glut in the market ; sometimes through the rank dishonesty of the consignee . It is generally believed that some form of co-operation is the solution of the problem , but so far a vast majority of the fruit growers of the country continue to sell their fruit in the old way , and continue to complain about the small returns they get for their labor and investment . The great fruit districts of Arkansas , Missouri , Illinois , Wisconsin and Michigan produce annually millions of dollars worth of fruit , and many times the grower gets but very little money and less satisfa...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
Agriculture Those Co-operative Experiments To the Editor : —Your articles on the matter of experiments by farmers along the line of keeping up the fertility of land have my hearty approval . But in order to make those experiments a thorough success it seems to me that there should be a system to the movement . Different • persons advocate different methods of keeping up soil fertility . One swears by clover ; another thinks there is nothing like barn-manure ; a third would use nothing but commercial fertilizers , if they were within his mean s , while still another man goes to the extreme of claiming that land can be kept fertile and productive by simply cultivating it as we should , thus unlocking and bringing to the reach of plants the natural fertility of the soil , without adding any of the so-called manures or fertilizers to it . Careful experiments in each of these lines and in all kinds of soils would probably be of great use , but not one man in a thousand can try them all ....

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
Garden and Orchard Kerosene for San o se Scale Last September the advice came from Dr . John B . Smith , entomologist of the New Jersey Experiment Station , to spray with kerosene oil for the San Jose scale ; to use the least possible amount that would cover the foliage entirely , and to do the work in the bright sunlight . What the result would be was variously promised , and both the hopeful and the faithless looked forward to this year s conditions of the trees with anxiety and interest . Asked as to the result of the autumn treatment and of the spraying with kerosene during the winter , Dr . Smith , writing yesterday , says : During the winter of 1897-98 a considerable number of experiments were made to determine the effects of kerosene upon fruit trees . Many risky applications were made , with the full knowledge-that they would probably result in the death of the trees ; but the object was to obtain information . In general it may be said that none of the older trees of any va...

Live Stock and Dairy Fattening Range Lambs This paper is a condensation of the principal facts ! contained in bulletin No . 57 , Section 2 , recently issued by the Animal Industry Department of tlie . Minne sota University Experiment station . The experiment began November 10 , 1890 . The experiment proper began November 16 and ended February 28 , thus covering a period of eleven weeks or seven-ty-seven days . The whole period of the feeding continued for 134 days .

Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
Poultry and Bees Proper Feeding It is not a good plan to feed poultry grain in a trough unless but little is fed at a time and the feed is given often . To do this would require too much labor , and the best way to get around the difficulty is to scatter the feed so it will take some time for the fowls to pick it up . This may be accomplished in the summer by throwing it in a place where it will fall among grass and must be hunted for , while in the winter it may be scattered in straw and litter where the fowls will be compelled to dig it out before getting it . Fowls are not calculated for rapid eating . They do best when kept busy about all the time in • satisfying their appetites . If they eat too rapidly they are apt to pack their crops with dry grain and this swells as it comes in contact with the water the fowl drinks and often produces crop pack , which ends in indigestion and often death . On the farm the poultry should be given a very light feed in the morning to induce the...

NOTES OF THE DAY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
NOTES OF THE DAY M ARKED advance all along the lines is the gratifying situation of the United States in its war with Spain at the close of this week . Shatter , with nearly 20 , 000 men , is before the gates of Santiago , ready to assault and conquer it as soon as his heavy artillery is placed in position . Instead of being overcome by the torrid heat , albeit they suffer much discomfort , our troops seem to stand the stress of weather like veterans of the tropics , and of all the large army only a small number are ill—which speaks volumes for the character and habits of the men we have sent out to win Cuba s freedom . Gen . Pando is approaching Santiago with reinforcements to the number of 8 , 700 , but the Cubans , under Rabi , have thrown themselves between the advancing columns and Santiago and will make the arrival of the latter slow and uncertain , if not impossible . By the t ime this issue reaches its readers fully 20 , 000 reenforcements will be on the way to join Shatter ...
The Cyclone Corn Husker [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 2 July 1898
The Cyclone Corn Husker From the Rosenthal Cornhusking Machine company , Milwaukee , Wis ., we have received a book of valuable information , entitled , How to Save Money . This book contains blank pages for memoranda for one year , forms for writing notes , leases , bills of sale , contracts for hiring farm hands , renting a farm , selling horses and cattle , for cultivating land on shares . Tells how to write a guarantee on a horse ; how to measure corn in the crib , hay in the mow or stack ; how to estimate the number of bushels of potatoes or apples in a pile ; how to measure lumber , to estimate the number of shingles necessary to cover a roof , and many other things every farmer has use for . Besides this the book tells about the Cyclone Cornhusking machine , which husks the corn and shovels the fodder at the same time . This cornhusker is the invention of Mr . Rosenthal , who has been working on it for several years . We have seen the machine work under rather difficult condi...

Harvest on us . What is a man to do ? On the heels of all this , tho chinch bugs are literally black on the wheat , and as soon as it is cut the little black devils will jump on the corn and eat it up . Then where is our meat or heg crop , winter feed for stock , and even corn bread ? If I was a Spaniard I would give up . You once wrote a piece on How the farmer could save himself .
