THE FARMERS' SIDE [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
THE FARMERS SIDE THE VOICE OF SPRING . Up from the vales a voice of gladness comes , Out of the woods a sound of waking mirth ; Dead lies the winter neath the greening earth , \ . And young Spring lives adorned In fragrant blooms ; - The breezy hills and the pure skies above Awake the world to dreams of joy and love . Hark I how the bird-songs float into the sky , From field and fen , from tree and shrub and ¦ brush , Sparrow and . linnet , bluebird , red-wing , thrush , Voice their delight in ravishing melody ; Winged are the songs with love , and every , •breeze That bears them on is fraught of fragrances . Along the valley where the violets grow The narrow river rushes on its way , Glad with the warmth and freshness of the day - ; - And glancing back to heaven with its own glow As hearts that hold to beauty , love and truth . Shine in the eye of God with His own ruth .. Over the hills where the young grass is sprent With dandelion rath , and eye-bright pale , Lean cows are grazin...

WHY PEOPLE SEEK THE SOUTH . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
WHY PEOPLE SEEK THE SOUTH . The heavy immigration into the southern states is in obedience to natural laws , whose immediate force and influence are all the more potent by reason of conditions created by chance population movements heretofore . That is to say , the tide of emigration from the older settled parts of the world , has , fer many years past , flowed along lines of latitude—or approximately so in following isothermal lines—and has been mainly directed to the grain regions of the North and South temperate zones . The hardships of life in North Europe , increasing with the increasing density of population , has been the impelling cause of the outgoing , and the desire to settle in countries whose climate and products should not be dissimilar to those with which the emigrants were familiar , controlled the course and fixed the destination of the movement . Hence , whether in North or South America , in Oceanica or Africa , population development has , on the whole , made the...
PLANT POTATOES IN 1896 . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
PLANT POTATOES IN 1896 . T P you are a grower of potatoes you 1 certainly are interested in the prop . It has been said that cheap seed makes high priced potatoes . Progressive farmers and growers will double their acreage in 1896 , the poorest crops frequently bringing the most money . Few . fields offer , such inducements to farmers as the cultivation of potatoes . With the exception of 1895 there has been a home market at good prices , the . demand exceeding the production . Any crop riot equaling the demand is an excel &lt; lent one to grow . It is easier to raise arid market five bushels of potatoes than one of wheat . Potatoes cannot be stored in elevators and kept indefinitely , they are perishable . There was an immense yield of potatoesin 1895 . Hundreds of thousands of bushels were destroyed by frosts , not dug at the time for harvesting the crop on account of low prices . The imports of potatoes into this country for ten years ending June 30 th , 1894 , over expor...

Fins , Feathers arid Honey . Bees : v [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
Fins , Feathers arid Honey . Bees : v POULTRY ITEMS . Our first item of experience with Plymouth Rocks was the purchase of four six month pullets and a cockerel . During the year they laid over six hundred eggs . Two of the pullets raised each a brood of chickens . The other two were set , but were broken up at the end of , two weeks by rats undermining and taking their escffs . v One objection to Plymouth Rock hens is their fashion of weaning their chickens when from four to six weeks old , before they are able to care for themselves . If confined in a coob they are likely to commence laying and kicking out their eggs . Our experience with . eggs from many breeders leads us to think that it is a difficult matter to breed even twenty-five per cent , of a flock of chickens that will average a score of eighty per cent , in a standard of one hundred as laid down by poultry authorities . For two years the writer kept a flock each , of about twenty , ©^ Plymouth Rocks and Light Brahmas ....
POOR BUT RICH . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
POOR BUT RICH . Once in New England , says a writer in the Outlook , I was riding with an old farmer , and some of the men of the neigh-borhood-came under criticism . Speaking of a prominent man in the village , I asked : He is a man of means ? Well , sir , the farmer replied , he aint got much money , but he s mighty rich . He has a good deal of land , then ? I asked . No , sir , he aint got much land , neither , but still he s mighty rich . The old farmer , with a pleased smile , observed my puzzled look for u moment , and then said : You see , he aint got much money , and he aint got much land , but still he is rich , because he never went to bed , owing any man a cent in all his life . He lives as well as he wants to live , and he pays as he goes ; he doesnt owe anything and he aint afraid of anybody ; he tells everv man the truth , and does his duty by himself and his family and his neighbors , his word is as good as a bond , and every man , woman and child in the town looks up...

AreYou Constipated? . No being can be healthy if n &lt; 5 t ready to answer nature s call . It is a sign of a sluggish , -weakened , impoverished system . The best remedy is Dr.Peters Blood Vivalizer fhe old Swiss-German remedy , which was discovered by an old German physician and has been in constant use for over a hundred years , though notexten- . sively advertised . It has no grine-. ing effect , but regulates the bowels , strengthens the digestive organs while it purifies the blood , thus toning the entire system . It seldom fails to cure all diseases caused by impoverished or impure blood or from disordered stomach . No drugstore medicine ; is sold only by regular Vitalizer agents .

. - . - UNIVERSITY TRUSTEES , . The Illinois University , like many similar state institutions , was founded for giving instruction-in agriculture , the mechanical arts and allied studies ; For years the department oj agriculture has fallen- behind the other departments in its equipments , teaching force and students in attendance . : All connected with the University as teachers or . students , those interested in agricultural education and farmers of the state have -known these facts and lamented . them . The institution has not been in touch with the farmers . of the state . Through whose fault , it is not necessary to state here ^ even if it could be definitely laid at any one s door . The fact is . here andniustbe met and the fault remedied as soon as . possible ; for it is a fault that a great state institution should be so . out of sympathy with those for whom it was intended that it gets practically ho students , from them .

THE METRIC SYSTEM . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
THE METRIC SYSTEM . E VERY loyal American is brouht up on the idea that our great nation is the . most liberal and progressive that tlie sun shines on . It , is a trifle disconcerting , therefore , to be told , that we are being distanced by other nations in almost every line . For education we are . taught to look to Germany . The great scientists are most of them foreigners . In political and social reforms , good local government , Australian ballot , and postal savings-banks we trail along in the rear of all the foreign nations ... It is an undoubted fact that-it is really more difficult to put in . practice a real , far-reaching reform in this country than in almost any other . Take the case of the metric system which the committee on weights and measures has been attempt ing to get adopted by our government , as . it has already been by almost the whole civilized world . - The system is undeniably the best invented , and is as much in advance of our cumbersome , old-fashioned ...
. . RICH BUT CONSCIENCELESS . * [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
. . RICH BUT CONSCIENCELESS . * A BILL has been reported for refunding the debts of the Union and Central Pacific roads . It ought not to pass . The design , of it is to extend the time of payment of the debtj reduce the interest and , in short , give a practically unlimited-control of the roads to the present socalled owners . The bill seems to ignore the fact that the roads , and especially the Central , have been so managed as to , enrich a few individuals and defraud the government . Not only has the management of the finances defrauded the government ( i . e ., the people of the United States ) of its just dues in interest and the principal , but has pursued a policy calculated to depreciate the value of the property mortgaged to the . government . Is such dishonesty not to be punished , but to be rewarded and given a new lease of power ? . - r - - , If the few railway potentates who dominate the Central : | iLj ^^ o ^ ivne ( l : Jbiiiiir ; : sub ^ - cpiximitt « 5 e of the Sena...
WHO ARE THE MONEY LENDERS ? [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 23 April 1896
WHO ARE THE MONEY LENDERS ? THE . bankers , brokers and mortgage sharks are now 7 making the absurd plea that they are the only true frieiids / of the wage-earner . , In . their public statements they have abandoned the position that they are on the side of the agricultural and producing classes as too inconsistent- But the wage-earners , they say , have been benefitted by the depreciation of silver . The small sav-ings-bank depositors are really the money loaners- of the country , they say , and the rise in gold directly benefits them / . - Now while the idea that the poor men of this country are really its money lenders has a fantastic resemblance to the truth , it is only true in the same sense that the working men of the community are the foundation of its wealth They create the wealth , but do not benefit from it . Much of the money of the poor is thus used for the benefit of the managers of the institutions in which it is deposited . The depositors are paid a pittance of inter...
