The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
The Week There have been many glorious Fourths since that happy moment in the worlds history when the old Liberty bell pealed out the birth of a nation whose watchword was aiid ever is to be Freedom . But not in . thirty-five years has there , been such an anniversary of that birthday as was celebrated by the patriotic people of the nation last Monday . July 4 , 1863 , was a day fateful in the country s annals , prophetic of Appomattox and of the splendid Union which the war with Spain has confirmed—the re-union of the North and the South . All over this glad Northland , thirty-five years ago last Monday , the- bells were ringing out the victory at Gettysburg , and even while they rang word came up from the South that Vicksburg had fallen , that the hero of Donelson and Shiloh had added still other laurels to the wreath of his matchless victories , and the people knew that at last a man was at the head of their armies who would not halt in his all-conquering march till peace was won...
Eternal Vigilance the Price of Liberty [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
Eternal Vigilance the Price of Liberty Every American who would be true to himself , and true to his country , should hold constantly in mind the simple fact that in this nation government of every kind and degree is only the means adopted by the people to promote their own welfare . We all know this to be true , yet the multiplicity and complexity of the interests that from time to time demand attention , and the flood of words with which every subject is practically overwhelmed , tend to drown out primary ideas . Thus it comes to pass that in many instances government is discussed as though it were something outside of the people , something possessed of powers inherent , not derived from or depending upon the will of the people . Certain it is that government , embodying as it does the whole power of the people and capable of affecting deeply the welfare of every individual citizen , too often takes on the aspect of an engine which certain elements are striving to control and ope...

The Bright Side [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
The Bright Side Our friend E . S . Fursman has discovered a new method of improving the clover crop and keeping down ragweed—something of rare value to the agriculturists of our country—which he describes in this issue of The Farmers Voice . But he has made another discovery concerning which he speaks also , and one of even greater importance , for seasons may come and seasons may go , with their successes or failures , their big crops or their little ones , but the life of man is ever the central and most important of earthly things . And Mr . Fursman has learned how to enjoy life ; he simply turns his back upon gloomy things and insists upon counting his blessings and viewing the brighter side . Here is a lesson for all of us , and there is perhaps no place in the world where the application may be more easily made or with greater benefit than upon the American farm . It is man s natural home , yields readily to the gentler influences and associations , is the breeding ground of h...
The Question of the Time [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
The Question of the Time Two years ago this very day William Jennings Bryan was nominated for the presidency by the National Democratic convention , and the Chicago platform became the center about which was fought a battle royal between the forces of silver and of gold . Two years have passed , and not one substantial result , so far as actual legislation for an improved currency is concerned , has been achieved . Yet to have accepted the statements of the orators of that day the welfare of the nation rested upon the instant free coinage of silver or the immediate adoption of the gold standard—according to the view of the respective advocate . Explain the delay as we may , and the explanations are as numerous as politicians , the fact remains , as we then and since have pointed out : the currency is not a primary or fundamental issue , it is secondary , and in whatever way it is settled its effect will not be of lasting importance so long as the enormous wrongs which afflict the pe...
A New Plan for Borrowers [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
A New Plan for Borrowers A company has been formed in Chicago for the purpose of lending money to farmers on a plan that never before has been used in this country , although it has been employed in Europe for more than 100 years , and is so popular there that 90 per cent of the mortgage loans are made on this plan . This is what is known as the amortizement system , and the first loans were made last week . Soon the plan will be in full operation and money will be available under its provisions . By this system the borrower takes money for twenty years and pays it back in installments , paying a little of the principal each year . Each year the interest grows less as the principal decreases . At any time the borrower may , if he elects so to do , pay all or any part of the debt , which will be credited until the amount paid cancels the debt . The rate of interest is 6 per cent and on a debt of $ 1 , 000 the borrower pays each year $ 87 . 18 . The first year $ 60 of this goes for in...

&gt; i ) I &gt; Building Up the Soil &lt; &gt; . V TTTTTTTTTTTT T TTVtTTTTTTTT »» TTTTT . TTT SOIL BUILDING or increasing the humus by turning under green crops . This process may well be termed soil silos in which the materials for plant food are turned under by the plow and covered and preserved by a layer of earth . Quoting from recollection , we think it was Waldo Brown who reports an income of $ 2 , 000 per annum for ten consecutive years from thirty-six acres of land . Twenty-four acres of this is devoted to corn and potatoes for city market . The other twelve are in rotation devoted to clover as a preparation crop , which is plowed under at a period of greatest luxuriance . Can you afford to plow under this fine crop ? asked an inquiring friend , admiring the growth . I think so , replied Mr . Brown . Before I commenced this system I paid out $ 15 per acre for hauling and distributing stable manure procured from the city near by , costing me no...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 9 July 1898
Agriculture Scudder * s Wasteful Haste The postmaster at Bunkum was not half a bad sort of a man . He was alert and quick to see a business chance and was at work in his store , in which the postofflce was kept , from early morning until weariness drove the last loafer home in the evening . He might have made a successful business man on a large scale if opportunity had opened the way for him , but because he had not seen a way to engage in large transactions he did not despise ¦ the day of small things . Beginning as a huckster Who traded various commodities to country housewives in exchange for butter , eggs . old rags and iron , he . had built up a trade that proved profitable and in the end enabled him to start a modest store at Bunkum , the stock of which enlarged and included more and more different lines until it became the regulation general , store , containing as many different sorts of goods as most of the department stores in the big cities . If a girl wanted a yard of r...
