Rabbit Trap . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

Rabbit Trap . When we were a hoy we took a great delight in setting traps for rabbits . It has become necessary to get after the cotton tails not merely for the pleasure there is in taking them , but as a protection to orchards . Although a little out of season , we give our boy readers the plan of the rabbit trap used bv Messrs . Wellhouse & Son , the apple kings of Kansas , who keep nearly two thousand of them set during the winter . It consists of a box 22 Inches long , made of ordinary fence boards , closed at one end , and with an inward-swinging gate in the other end which is shut by contact of the rabbit with a trigger after he has entered . About four feet of lumber and four feet of No . 12 galvanized iron wire are used in the making of each trap . It is the result of twenty years experimentation in making traps and studying the nature of the rabbit Our readers would scarcely believe us if we were to tell them that the annual value of the skim-milk In the United ...

Some Questions on Economy . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

Some Questions on Economy . TO H-UBTS AND Ho ___ * Is it economy for a girl to crochet a dollar s worth of thread Into five yards of ten-cent lace to trim garments made of five-cent muslin while the mother sits up at night to mend that which the girl might better have been taught to mend ? Is it economy for a father to enter into business negotiations of which his conscience cannot approve , so that he and his family may live ln grand style and his son remain ln college to retain his position of champion foot-ball kicker ? Is It economy for a bachelor to exact his washing , Ironing , and mending done for less than lt ls actually worth , so that he may use more cigars or treat more lady friends to Ice cream at the church socials ? Is lt—now , really , lt Is—economy to live , dress , and eat ln a manner that will make us appear as though we belonged to a specially select set of the dear Four Hundred , and deprive ourselves of the necessities of life ? Rather , Is not true economy a se...

' ' Hierher'Education . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

HierherEducation . To HEABTS AND HOMES As I read the article on Higher Education of Women ln the Hearts and Homes column * , a wave of tfRhteous Indignation swept oror me and I cannot refrain from mnklnff a protest . One would thjnk the writer of thnt article has suffered an Irreparable loss , or sustained an Injury from which he cannot recover , on account of higher education . The sarcastic way In which he spoke nf • cutsha leads one to believe that this very thing ( culture ) Is not always acquired ln thosj dreadful schools of which he speaks , but Is oftentimes an Inherited grace , which we believe he does not possess . While I read , a vision of the home life of such a man came to my mind , and the picture was something like this : A master as autocratic as the Czar of Russia , with a pale , tired , timid little wife , who fed to do his bidding , and . like Alice of Ben Bolt fame , trembled with fear at his frown . The daughters of this home were discouraged drudces , whose hig...

The Special Purpose Dairy Cow . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

The Special Purpose Dairy Cow . Our readers must not suppose because we have recommended for the average farmer in the West the granger s cow , or the dual purpose cow , as Prof . Shaw calls it , for the farmer with whom grain raising and grain feeding is the main business , and dairying Incidental , that therefore we do not believe in the special purpose dairy cow . We do believe in her , and when lecturing to farmers in states other than Iowa ,- and those north , south and immediately west of lt , we urge farmers not to use the granger s cow but to use the special purpose dairy cow . In short , wherever we find a farmer ln Iowa , or any place east , north , south , or west of it , who makes dairying his special business , for instance , who buys grain to feed to dairy cows for the purpose of making butter and cheese , we urge him to use either the Jersey , the Holstein or the Red Poll ; these are the cows for him . They fill a large place in American agriculture , and will fill a ...

Good and 'Bad Milkers in All Breeds . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

Good and Bad Milkers in All Breeds . Nature Intended that the cow of all breeds should furnish enough milk for the calf until It ls old enough to make Its living off grasB . An COWB therefore are milkers to that extent Man has modified nature s plan in order to meet his necessities , and the effects of this modification is an increased amount of milk whenever he persistently demands it by the act of milking . Wherever in all the world human requirements demand a large supply of milk it will be found that the cattle of that section are good milkers , without the slightest reference to breed , size or color , and wherever , the world over , no demand has been made on the cow for anything more than the supply of the wants of the calf it will be found , without reference to breed , size or color , that the milk yielded has corresponded to the calf s demands . It is , therefore , altogether a mistake to suppose that any particular breed has necessarily a superiority over any other In the...

Cows and Calves . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

Cows and Calves . IV . WALUIOTS ______ EBB . An article in a recent issue by Mr . Smith on the General Purpose Cow leads me to give you the record of my own . T commenced March 1 st with three cows , two of which had been ln milk since January 1 st and the other was fresh November 17 th . I had a heifer come in December 24 th under twenty-two months old , which gave but little mUk . The two cows that calved In January were dry ln the fall , one four weeks and the other six weeks . As near , therefore , as we can estimate , we have milked three and a half cows for the year ending March 1 st We have kept a strict account and made 1 , 033 pounds of butter and used cream ln the family amounting to 120 pounds more , making 1 , 163 pounds In all , or 329 % pounds per cow . Two of the cows are grade Shorthorns , one a muley , perhaps a Red Poll cross , one part Jersey , and a heifer , three-quarters Jersey . Some special man may say that the Jersey made the butter , but we know that the Sh...

What is the Matter With the Silo ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 8 April 1898

What is the Matter With the Silo ? Tea TTT -, T . T . A ^_ I . , 7 __ BX _ HM What Is the matter with my silo ? I have filled it four years with good success . I wet the corn which T put ln ln 1896 and it kept splendidly . In the fall of 1897 . part of it was a little drier than T should liked to have had it , but would have been counted rather green for shock corn . I gave it the same treatment as I did in 189 G and kept a man in the silo all the time I was filling lt . As every one knows , silage will spoil more or less around the sides if the air gets to tt , but this year all the good silage was around the edges and It was spoiled ln the center all the way down . After the moldy stufT was taken off for a depth of six or eight Inches , we would strike a hot place and there would steam arise from it . - Around the edges for a distance of from six to twelve inches it was good all the way down . I would like to see this discussed in your paper . My silo ls 10 x 12 and 20 feet high ,...
