. Method of Tillage for Drouthy Seasons [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

. Method of Tillage for Drouthy Seasons HIS was the subject considered by K . M . Kellogg-in the late series of Michigan institutes to which his labors were assigned . He is the leading small fruit grower in the state , and those who listened to his own version of how he wins unvarying success in this special department feel that they received a lesson which , put into practice , will greatly in- • crease the productiveness of every farm ¦ crop . In fitting the ground he first plows then subsoils , after which the harrow breaks up every lump and finely pulverizes the entire depth of soil ; lastly a thin surface cultivation is given to check evap- . oration . By this preparation a vast reservoir is formed capable of holding all the rain and snow that fall . Two forces act upon the water in the soil ; gravity to < lraw it down , and capillary attraction to draw it up . In a fine compact soil the united action of the two forces hold It in suspension . Capillary action is inc...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

A man s life may be saved in many ways . A man may commit suicide in a great many ways . Shooting himself through the head is quicker , but it is no more certain than neglecting his health . If a-woman saw her husband with a pistol to his head , she would take prompt and vigorous measures to save him : but the same woman might see he ? husband on the down-grade to disease and death without seeing the seriousness of it . Onesixth of all the people who die , die of consumption . Consumption doesnt come all at once . It is insidious . The seeds of it are seemingly insignificant . Most people do not know how it starts . Thousands of people are on the-road to consumption and dont know it . Whenever _ there is loss of flesh—paleness—wasting away—look out . Consumption easily finds a foot-hold in a weakened body . I / ow vitality , impure or poor blood , imperfect digestion , nervousness , sleeplessness—all these lead to consumption . Taken in time , Dr . Pierce s Golden Medical Discovery ...

Hayseed in His Hair—Another Verse [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

Hayseed in His Hair—Another Verse OUR readers have been much Interested in the song Hay Seed in His Hair and we , by special request , republished it in the Farm , Field and Fireside of Feb . 8 . Since that we have a letter from Mr . Leroy Runyan , stating that during the campaign of a year ago last fall he sang the song and that between the third and fourth stanzas he inserted another , as follows : — And in 910 thats comin , The boys will be up and hummin . And theyll elect a president Wholl for the people care ; And when you come to sound him . And to take a view around him , You will find he s got free silver Neath the hay seed in his hair . There are few places in all the region west of the Alleghanies , or even in the rural districts further east , where the significance of the new stanza would not be appreciated . The thoughtful farmers of the whole country have made up their minds that a common sense view of their own interests requires them to ask of the candidates , What i...

A Future Plague Spot [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

A Future Plague Spot UNDER this heading a Southern journal , devoted to industrial enterprises , arraigns the managers of the > f Georgia colony known as the Old Soldiers Colony . It represents that the people who have gone down there are virtually paupers , and that their sufferings will , a . dlsgrace to the section and give a bad name to all legitimate attempts to colonize land in the South . In further protest , Dixie , the journal referred to , uses the following plain words : Yes , indeed , the question may well be asked . What are these people going to do ? Think of it—5 , 000 people practically without money , set down in a barren wilder-. 11 ess ! All are in a desperate condition , but what is to become of the thousands that are penniless ? The pensioners cannot support them , and , admitting the fertility of • ne soil , which is admitting a very doubtful point , years Hist elapse before the only possible means of sustenance agriculture—may be put in successful o...

The Bimetallic Pledge [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

The Bimetallic Pledge ON another page we republish , by request , our pledgerelating to the equal coinage of gold and silver . Since it appeared Feb . 1 , it has been largely circulated and has met with great popular favor . A subscriber in Wisconsin writes that in a short time heprocured ninety names in his immediate neighborhood ; that it has led to much discussion and is educating thepeople . He and others are asking for blank pledges on which to obtain more signatures . We , therefore , to save time , print the pledge again nad suggest that it can be cut out by any one and pasted upon a sheet of paper and the list can thus be extended . It is not merely sentiment or opinion , however well expressed , which is to save our mortgaged farms or prevent their being mortgaged and restore . fair prices and prosperous times , it is action . A pledge and a pledge circulated is action and a pledge signed and lived up to will secure the adoption of the right financial principles by our nati...

Something New In Photography S CIENTIFIC men in different parts of our country ., and Europe believe they have made a discovery enabling them to penetrate , by means of the photo-, graph , through substances hitherto held to be absolutely 7 opaque .

Is it a Blow in the Dark ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

Is it a Blow in the Dark ? THE Indian Appropriation bill , as it is presented to the House , omits the customary small item for the expenses of the Board of Indian Commissioners . This is a glaring instance of a penny wise , pound foolish policy . This Board of Indian Commissioners has saved to the Government many thousands of dollars during the twentyfive years or so of its existence . It has , also , secured to the Indians just treatment and so prevented , many times , discontent and trouble . By its supervision of all purchases of Indian supplies it has put an end to the frauds that were a disgrace to the Indian department , and has succeeded in having honest goods provided . The Board consists of eminent men , like President Gates of Amherst College , Hon . A . K . Smiley , Gen . E . Whittlesy , and others of national reputation . Its members , except the Secretary , serve without salary and have given much of their time , not seldom several weeks in a single tour of inspection ...

Current Topics [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Fireside — 29 February 1896

Current Topics Senator Morgan , of Alabama , made a great speech on behalf of the Cuban patriots . He spoke to crowded galleries for three hours . His figures indicating the terrible cruelty of Spaniards in the slaughter of the Cubans were astounding . The number already slain was put at 44 , 000 . The House took a most important action on Indian education . By a vote of 93 to 64 it decided that none of the appropriations for Indian schools should go to sectarian schools . As the Roman Catholics have for several years received by several hundred thousand dollars the greater amount of such money , the vote , of course , was particularly intended for them . A dispatch from the east says Clara Barton is forbidden by the Sultan to go for relief purposes to Zeitoun . Why should our government wait on England or any European power when our own citizens are concerned and when the rights of humanity are involved . One of our armed men-of-war should sail into the Dardanelles . With it should...
