The Creamery and the Grazier and Feeder . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
The Creamery and the Grazier and Feeder . Heretofore the grazier , or the man who purchases calves and yearlings for the purpose of growing them until lit for the feed lot , and the feeder , or the man who buys them to finish for the market , have been bitterly opposed to the development of the creamery interest in the West . They have taken the position that when the ureameiy comes in good calves go out , that he calves are knocked in the head with the churn dasher , and when the separator came in they held that separator niiiK . was wortniess , or worse than worthless , as a tood tor calves and that their interests required them to oppose a movement which compelled them to buy catue which must be ted at a loss . Where the special purpose dairy cow has been in evidence ana skim-nulK calves of this type have been ouereu for sale , it is no . uncommon to discover in the air me unnustakauie signs of proianity both external and internal , it the creamery is to be judged by the quality ...
Chats With Our Readers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Chats With Our Readers . We are in daily receipt of letters from readers asking information on every conceivable topic , some times several topics ln one letter . We have decided to deal with these letters in the form of familiar chats . We wish our readers to feel entirely free to write us on any question of farm management on which they may desire information . For example , Mr . E . L . Shepherd , of Macon county , Missouri , writes : After finding so much good information in your paper in regard to keeping sheep , I wish to ask whether it would be advisable to sow rape for July and August pasture for lambs , and if so , when it should be done . When wouid it be advisable to wean them and expect them to be in good market condition the flrst of September ? They are now from one to two months old : Last year I kept salt where they could go to it at all times . They did fairly well . This year I thought I would mix resin and sulphur with the salt , and if I do , what would be the pr...
Keeping up the Flock . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Keeping up the Flock . Hpre is a piece of advice almost two thousand years old , the advice given by Virgil , the Roman farmer and breeder , in the third book of his Georgics , about keeping up the flock of sheep : There will be always those in every flock whose forms you will wish to change , therefore always repair them , and choose out from the flock the best offspring yearly . Then after the birth , the care is transferred to the lambs , and they brand them with the marks and the names of the race , which they may wish to keep for breed for preserving the flock . And if wool be your care , select white flocks , with soft fleeces . And if , although the ram himself be white , reject him which has a black tongue under his moist palate ; lest he may stain . the fleeces of the lambs with black spots , and look about for another in the full field .
Ox Warble- * . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Ox Warble- * . There is a lady in England , Miss Eleanor Ormerod , consulting entomologist of the Royal Agricultural Society , who has given years of study to the ox warble . We see it stated in a late foreign paper that the remedy which she regards as best is simply to rub fine salt into the holes made by the warble . Of course this is not practicable with large herds of cattle or cattle that are not used to being handled , but we mention it in response to inquiries which we receive from time to time as to how farmers can rid their cattle of this pest

New Light on the Nebraska Decision . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
New Light on the Nebraska Decision . We gave in our last issue a synopsis of the points covered by the late decision of the Supreme Court of the United States on the maximum rate law in Nebraska . Since the full text of the decision has been published , one or two points have been brought out to which we did not refer . It was claimed by the attorneys for the railroads that they were entitled to exact enough money from the shippers to pay not only operating expenses but dividends on all outstanding obligations . In its decision the Supreme Court states this claim in the following language : A railroad company is entitled to exact such charges for transportation as will enable it at all times not only to pay operating expenses but also to meet the interest regularly accruing upon all its outstanding obligations , and justify a dividend upon all its stock ; and that to prohibit it from maintaining rates or charges for transportation adequate to all those ends will deprive it of its pr...
Irrigation of Truck Patches . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Irrigation of Truck Patches . Truck gardeners of the Eastern states are adopting the method of irrigation , and a recent writer has published a work showing how it can be done cheaply . He uses a two and a half horse power gasoline engine , capable of pumping water at the rate of sixty gallons per minute through a metal pipe , and distributes this by means of what he calls duck hose . This hose is made of twelve-Inch duck , cut the required size , sewed up with the seam outside , and dipped into a mixture of hot coal tar and linseed oil , equal parts , and costs in the East a cent and a quarter a foot The entire cost of engine , pump , pump house , pipe , hose , etc ., is from $ 300 to $ 350 , and the cost of fuel about 23 cents per day . We suppose very few of our readers can make a profitable use of an apparatus of this kind , and yet there are years on almost every farm where there is a sufficient water supply when this could be made to pay a big interest even on a few acres of p...
Watering Gardens and Lawns . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Watering Gardens and Lawns . Most farmers wives and townsmen follow aix entirely erroneous practice in merely sprinkling their lawns and gardens in a dry time . As we have often pointed out , a little shower in a dry time does more harm than good , unless the soil is immediately stirred so as to save the shower . We do not care to go into the philosophy of this just now , but merely state what has been demonstrated to be a fact We do not believe , therefore , that merely sprinkling lawns or gardens does any good whatever , and time and water so spent is time and water wasted . In this , as in everything else , it is well to imitate nature when she givesus a shower &gt; that we know does good . We would , therefore , depend on watering the garden with a rake , that is , by keeping the mulch of dry dirt on the top by constant raking , and only water when it becomes absolutely necessary , and then we would water in such a way as to imitate a good , soaking rain , and follow thi...
DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CUBED [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CUBED by local applications , as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear . Ihere is only one way to cure deafness , and that is by constitutional remedies . Deafness is caused by an Inflamed condition of the mucous linining of the Eustachian Tube . When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing , and when it is entirely closed deafness is the reault , and unless the inflammation can be taken ont and this tube restored to its normal condition , hearing will be destroyed foiever ; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh , which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surlaces .

Cost of Growing Corn , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Cost of Growing Corn , Many estimates have been made in recent years on the cost of growing corn , some manifestly for political effect , some by newspapers for purely sensational purposes , and others with manifestly incomplete data . The subject is one of general interest not only to the farmer but to all classes of men who are interested in handling or consuming corn products . The problem of ascertaining the cost of production is not by any means so easy as many imagine even for a single year , and the cost of one year may differ , and usually does , widely from the cost of other years , in one state from other states , in one county from other counties , in one farm from other farms , and in one field from another field on the same farm under different management . The problem therefore in ascertaining in any accurate way the cost of growing corn is still well nigh unsolvable . The Orange Judd Farmer for example , last year conducted what professed to be a very thorough and exh...
The Cost of Growing Oats . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
The Cost of Growing Oats . While a great deal has been said as to the cost of growing corn per acre comparatively little has been said as to the cost of growing oats . The Illinois Agricultural JSxperiment * Station has made an investigation on the same line as the corn investigation with reference to the cost of growing oats . Their conclusion is that it has cost the farmers reporting in the year 1896 up to the stage of hauling to market six dollais and fifty-nine cents per acre , or seventeen and eight-tenths cents for seed . Of this amount two dollais and seven cents per acre went for labor , or live and one-half cents per bushel ; three dollars and eighty cents , or ten cents a bushel for rent ; fifty-three cents per acre , or one and four-tenths per bushel for seed , and nineteen and six-tenths cents per acre , or half a cent a bushel for time . Hauling to market cost thirty-seven cents per acre , or nine mills per bushel . Eighty cents per acre , or two and two-tenths cents pe...
On Buying Stockers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
On Buying Stockers . A good many of our readers are looking for young cattle to consume the grass on the farm , with the idea of putting them in the feed lot in the fall tp consume the crop of corn for which they are now preparing . They will be strongly tempted to pay long prices for about anything that has hair and horns . This year , at least , a great deal of stuff will be brought in from north , south , east and west , and sold to the head farmers on from six to eight per cent interest This importation of cattle from other states is no doubt profitable to the man shipping them in , and if they ship in the right kind they will not only put money into their own purses , but into the purses of Iowa farmers . It is the business of the fanners to show them that by shipping in the wrong kind they will not make money for themselves . Many of our readers had a costly experience in this line last year ; it does not do to be too anxious to buy cattle . It 1 B better to let some grass go ...
Getting Cattle on Pasture . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898
Getting Cattle on Pasture . It will not be long until the pastures are perceptibly green , and the mouths of the cattle will water , so to speak , as they look out from the dry lots over these green fields . The farmer will be tempted to turn out his cattle on the theory that they should get used to it gradually , and with less jet back from the change than they otherwise would . This is a mistake . Live stock of any kind cannot be expected to gain much during the first weeks on grass , as they are ordinarily managed . They can , however , be put on their summer feed without any perceptible decrease in gain if they are kept on dry feed until the grass furnishes a good bite , and the dry feed continued until the grass is , in farm ers parlance , solid . The farmer who has kept his cattle according to the theories and practices of Wallaces Farmer , gaining a little all the time by giving a little grain , should keep on in the same line for a week or ten days after the cattle get a ful...
