Farm Economics [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Farm Economics Is Coin a Misnomer N OTWITHSTANDING the cheapness of farm produce there is niuch distress in the land owing to the scarcity of money . Farmers cannot afford to hire , unless it be the great stock-raisers . To hire the corn husked would consume the -entire crop . It is true that much corn is toeing sold , but upon investigation , it was ascertained that the proceeds went to pay outstanding obligations which could not be postponed , and to pay taxes . No bills are being made . Mending and repairing Is the order of the day . I saw men . last week patronizing the cobblers with mending shoes which they would have thrown away in ordinarily prosperous times . I have never seen the equal of tbe pinching and the poverty of the laboring poor , as 1 have this winter . And then men are slandered because of utter inability to pay . A couple of weeks ago I heard a banker remark to an implement collector that the farmers bad no money and it was making many dishonest . I dont believe...

When the myth-mak- /* - era got up that story they must have been thinking of dyspepsia ; for there is certainly no ether trouble on earth that keeps you so everlastingly struggling against being crushed into utter despair . Anything that cures dyspepsia lifts about half the weight of misery that crushes mankind , — and womankind . The trouble with most of the so-called dyspepsia - cures , is that they dont cure . They give only temporary relief . Indigestion usually extends all through the digestive tract , from the stomach clear down to the large intestine ; the liver too is frequently involved in the trouble being torpid snd inactive . For a thorough , radical , permanent cure you must have the whole digestive organism set right . —Not violently stirred up , but regulated . Doctor Pierce s Pleasant Pellets will do it They stim...
An Illinois Lynching [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
An Illinois Lynching S OME of our States have been accustomed to draw their garments closer with a holier-than-thou air when the subject of lynching was brought up . It is with shame and mortification that we record a disgraceful lynching which occurred this week , in this free and enlightened State of Illinois . It is evident that modern improvements , good school-houses , electric lights , churches and courts of justice do not insure the universal prevalence of Christian civilization . There are brutes , untamed and irresponsible , in our very midst , and on some occasions they break out . The poor wretch lynched at Sullivan was held for trial on a charge of committing an atrocious crime . His guilt may have been unquestionable , but this is no sort of excuse for the lynching . If the courts are not lo be trusted to do justice , let us have courts that can be trusted . There is the point for vigorous and intelligent action .
Economy and Waste [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Economy and Waste T HIS paper is emphatically for economy . For the wholesale extravagances of politicians appropriating public moneys for alleged local improvements , it has no sympathy whatever . This year of all others , when a yawning deficit must be met by borrowed money , it would seem as if the time for economical management was most appropriate . It by no means follows , however , that money already invested by Uncle Sam should be allowed to waste , or the interests of the nation to languish , for lack of funds . We are not a poverty-stricken nation—as a nation—to whatever straits we have been reduced as individuals by financial tricksters . Our country can not afford to waste money in anv way ; neither can she afford to neglect the public interest s on a plea of poverty . In the case of the Nicaragua Canal now under consideration by Congress , there is danger that a . 6 reat work will remain undone , and millions expended will be lost , because of a false and niggardly plea...
Our Nation ' s Heroes [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Our Nation s Heroes THE amusing way in which party politicians manage to assume ownership in all our greatest men is emphasized by the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington , which follow each other so closely this month . Lincoln is spoken of as the truest Democrat since Jefferson . Washington is the representative Republican of our nation s infancy , etc ., etc . The fact is that the truly great man is greater than any party or office . Even the office of President , the greatest in the gift of our nation , adds nothing to the great name of Lincoln . It is not the President whose birthday we celebrate and whose name we revere . There have been many Presidents , but only one Lincoln . It is the Man , the great-souled , unselfish man , whom we love to honor and remember . To be . sure , the office gave him opportunities , the confidence of the people put responsibilities on his shoulders such as no other man has ever borne , but it was the man and not the President that had the wisdom...
Let Them In [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Let Them In IT is not right to make the two Territories , New Mexico and Arizona , a football of mere politics . The interests of our citizens resident and doing business in those Territories are to be considered in the question of statehood . Will it benefit the material interests of the people to be admitted into the Union ? Will it be for their advantage politically ? Will it promote good schools , good roads , the development of mines , agriculture and other resources ? Will it establish a fairer principle of taxation by giving a better representation in the various branches of Republican Government through which the taxes are laid and assessed ? All these questions must be answered in the affirmative . It would result in benefit to the people , in general , resident in these Territories to have a membership in the Union .. The question as to population and other usual qualifications for statehood have all , long since , been settled . Why then should Congress turn a cold should...
Our Bimetallic Platform [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Our Bimetallic Platform In the interest of every producer , and particularly the farmer , the FARM , FIELD AND FIRESIDE advocates the restoration of silver to its former place as a full legal tender and , equally with gold , a coin of ultimate redemption . This is the first step in the right settlement of the currency question and our national finances , and thfc first step toward the restoration of products to their normal prices and of consequent business prosperity .
A Financial Thumb -Screw [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
A Financial Thumb -Screw THE financial stricture , not to say poverty , that is oppressing our producers , is shown by the American , an able national journal , published in Philadelphia , to be increased by the fact that not only are our exports compared with imports diminishing but , owing to low and decreasing prices resulting from the demonetization of silver , it requires a much greater amount of American products to be sold in exchange for the gold that Great Britain yearly demands of us . The lower the prices , the more of our products must be taken for this gold . The table compiled by the American shows that $ 149 , 128 , 164 less were received for our exports in 1895 than would have been at prices ruling in 1894 , and that $ 961 , 523 , 419 less were received for our exports for 1895 than we would have had at the prices of 1 873 . The insatiable maw of the bond-holders of England consumes this greatly increased amount of our products . And yet the gold monometallist is ver...
A Secretary of Manufactures [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
A Secretary of Manufactures THE National Association of Textile Manufacturers have asked , for a new department of the Government with a representative in the Cabinet . Looking at the matter merely from a financial point of view they make a strong showing . It is estimated that the farm products amounted to $ 3 , 800 , 000 , 000 for 1890 . But the manufactured products were valued at $ 9 , 370 , 000 , 000 for the same year . It is claimed , also , that a much larger num ber of people are directly and indirectly interested in manufactures . And it is capable of demonstration that the increase in manufactured products is £ reat from year to year ; for example 3 , 781 , 000 tons of pig iron were produced in 1880 , and in ten years the production had gone up to 10 , 000 , 000 tons a year . In some countries manufacturers have a representative in the Cabinet ; so does education . But it is a question whether , merely on money grounds , we want to create a new Cabinet office . Commerce wo...
Current Topics [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Current Topics The House refused by a vote of 190 to 80 to accept the Senate silver substitute for the bond bill . This merely illustrates the influence of the banking and brokerage interests in this country . When the farmers become fully aroused and vote straight on the silver issue , men will appear in the House who will represent producers instead of money-lenders and manhood instead of money . The Pacific railroads are to be investigated . A resolution passed the Senate , directing the railroad committee to make full inquiry . Senators Allen and Pettigrew criticized the methods of the committee . Not merely railroad officials should be summoned to testify , but the disinterested patrons of the road . Senator Pettigrew referred to the highwaymen and conspirators of the Pacific roads and urged the foreclosure of government liens . Congressman Hartman , of Montana , spoke in favor of the amendment to give the government the seniorage from the coinage , and had some fun with the Re...

Practical Farming [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Practical Farming Michigan Farmers Institute THE present winter Is a remarkable one for the farmers of our State . Sixtyeight institutes , almost one for a county , have been held , and the large attendance of enthusiastic people showed their appreciation of this effort made in behalf of agriculture . The itinerant working force consisted of members of the Agricultural College faculty and prominent practical farmers and fruit-growers throughout the state .

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 22 February 1896
Garden and Orchard Timber T HIS is the title of Bulletin 10 of the Division of Forestry of the U . S . Department of Agriculture , which is further described by Prof . B . E . Fernow , Chief of that Division in his letter of transmittal as a brief but comprehensive discussion of the characteristics and properties of wood in general and of our American timbers in particular , which it is hoped may be useful to engineers , architects , carpenteirs , lumbermen ,-and all wood workers .

ENRICHES THE LAND . iKeep Stock Healthy—What Land Plaster Does . Every professional farmer is aware of the great benefits to be derived from tbe use of land plaster , which has been employed aa a fertilizer for over 100 years . Benjamin Franklin Introduced its use ln this country after testing it In a manner to admit of no doubt as to its great value . The reason why is very simple . The ammonia In manure combines with the sulphur ln the plaster forming sulphate ot ammonia , which Is a very powerful stimulant of vegetable growth .
