Reform Marriage Laws [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Reform Marriage Laws THOUGHTFUL citizens have long felt that there should be a revision of the marriage laws in a number of states and at . least ah attempt to bring about uniformity and to escape the disgraceful practice of parties rushing off to other states where they are not known and obtaining the sanction of law for a marriage that could not be legally had at home . Wisconsin is moving in the right direction . A bill has been introduced the aim of which is to cheek the practice referred to . The proposed bill requires first a license from the clerk of court . The second paragraph is as follows : The clerk of the circuit court , as aforesaid ,: may inquire of the person applying for such marriage license , upon oath , as to the legality of such contemplated marriage , and if the clerk shall be satisfied that there is no legal impediment thereto then he shall grant such marriage license and shall make a note thereof . The next paragraph relates to fees and to a fine of $ 1 , 000...

Ex-Gov . Horace Boies on Finance [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Ex-Gov . Horace Boies on Finance WE have : carefully read the address , delivered on Jackson Day at Mason City , Iowa , by that venerable Democrat familiarly known as Uncle Horace Boles . We are particularly pleased to note that he is entirely in accord with us on these . two great national issues . He is bitterly opposed to seeing the gold standard fixed on the people of the United States , and also to the surrender to the bankers of that powerful function of government , the issue of all of our paper money . ¦ He is not opposed to our existing coinage- ratio of 16 to 1 , but in addition to this he . proposes a new scheme to bring about the restoration of silver to its old function . He formulates his scheme in eleven carefully prepared propositions . The pith of the plan is to open the mints for the unlimited reception at the market price of all gold and silver bullion presented with the offer to the depositors to receive government paper money for it , which in turn is to be rede...

Commission to the Philippines [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Commission to the Philippines R ELIABLE information is just now what the President and Congress need most to enable them to decide as to immediate action as well , as a more permanent policy in the Philippines . . . • Shall General Miller land his forces at Iloilo and almost inevitably bring on a collision with the insurgents ? It would probably result in the burning of the town and . a considerable loss of life . Our American troops would be at a disadvantage : in numbers and in the fact that the Insurgents would be behind fortifications . If Aguinaldo and the so-called government which he represents hears of the . appointment of this commission , he will probably wait to appear before it and possibly will patiently await its report . • - • . ¦ ¦¦ ... . General Otis and Admiral Dewey who are made members of the commission will be glad to be relieved of the responsibility of acting hastily and probably with little chance of a peaceful solution of the difficulties . Above all , with ...

Bishop Potter was president of the National Relief Association ^ The Massachusetts Volunteer Aid Society had its headquarters at Boston , and there were societies in nearly every city and in many towns for the aid of sick and needy soldiers which . did great good , and representatives in congress from their respective localities think they are entitled to just as much credit as Miss Barton . Bills have also been introduced tendering the thanks of congress to several individual philanthropists ¦ and nurses , including Miss Gould , Miss Annie Wheeler , daughter of Gen . Wheeler ; Miss Chanler , Miss Anna Bouligny and several others whose friends have interested themselves in their behalf . Miss Barton had the unusual distinction of being mentioned in the president s message . Miss Gould has received forma...

Improving the Common Hen [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Improving the Common Hen AT a Minnesota farmers institute , Mrs . Ida Tilson had this to say about improving the common hen : The com nion hens are of all the shapes and colors that fowls ever giw , . and they are usually neglected , abused , half-starved and left to shift for themselves generally ; but for all that they generally pay their own way and more , too—live and thrive and bring up a big family of healthy chicks under the most discouraging circumstances . Take the same pains with them as you would , with a flock of thoroughbreds and they will respond quickly and generously . There . is something—a good deal—in blood and there is an immense deal in care and fOod . If you have not the cash with which to buy : pure breed cocks to mate the hens with to begin with , dont think that you can do nothing to improve the common fowls ; . . . Common fowls can be greatly , improved in poiritof size by always selecting the largest and ; best to keep over to breed from , and the laying q...

Feeding for Eggs [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Feeding for Eggs WE well know that in all branches ot business there are those who take advantage of opportunities and seek the benefit of a rise in price . In selling eggs , or in procuring them , the matter of-cost must be considered only in relation to the price . We can better afford to incur an expense of two dollars in place of one , where the chances for profit are twee as great , than not to derive any profit at all . There are poultrymeu that buy beef at good -prices to feed , when eggs are high in price , and it pays them well . Just here we . will say to those who complain of receiving no eggs , to change the food by giving a goodly supply of meat once a day . A pound will supply twelve fowls and if kept warm they will nearly always lay under a meat diet . A good plan is to chop a pound of meat nnd arid TO it a quart of beans , after they have been well boiled , and thicken the mass with ground oats until it is like dough . Feed this- once a day to a about thirty hens , w...

Goose Breeding * [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Goose Breeding * By Prof . Chas- O . Flagg . . ( Continued from last Aveek . ) AT this time , the more freedom they can have the better , as it gives them exercise , and access to , a small pond , : brook or spring hole , gives ( the best , possible accommodations for . them . If . no pond hole or body of ¦ water as accessible the large half barrel or tub sunk in the ground in the yard and kept filled with water should not be forgotten . . The amount of green food or roots , the variety and quality of the grain food given , with attention to a proper supply of shells and grit , will largely influence egg production . Most breeds of geese lay frequently from 10 to 20 eggs , when they want to sit . After a goose has been a day or two on the nest , she can be taken off and put in a coop , which should be large enough so that she can stand erect . Tf she is confined here , at a little distance from her mates , she will usually abandon the idea of sitting after five or seven days , and w...

Small Fruits and Ornamental Shrubbery [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Small Fruits and Ornamental Shrubbery NO town , lot should be so small and no farm should be so large that there is not room for some small fruit and at least a shrub or two in the way of ornamentation . • , In the pioneer days of Illinois it was a rare thing to see a , new . farm opened up without a lilac bush and at least half a dozen , currant bushes planted near the house . Now there are hosts of home builders in both the , older states and in newly settled regions that think it too much bother to fuss with , berry . plants , or berry bushes , and as for a bit of shrubbery just for looks , that is out of the question It should not be so . No matter how small the homestead let there be berries of some sort and at least a few . currants . The farm of forty acres or more , should have at least a quarter of an acre devoted to small fruit Including grapes , blackberries , raspberries currants , gooseberries and strawberries These , should all be planted in rows tuning the long way of...

Landlord and Tenant . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Landlord and Tenant . PJERMIT me to say that I am a tenant . Now ,. if . Mr . Lee Young owns several farms and wishes he did not own them , the question arises , why does he not sell them ? Instead of making a wry face about bad tenants and destructive tenants , would it not be much better to sel the farms for what they would bring and give himself no further trouble ? May be they will not bring as much as they cost ; say the face , of the mortgage , with the back interest , back taxes , foreclosure and all that ,, but . if he does hot want to own farms he should look out for these things . And . is not this one great trouble between landibrd . and . tenant ? Have not . the farms cost the landlord so much that he wants more rent . than the tenant is able to pay ? If the tenant gives security against destroying things , the landlord should contract -to take only ¦ produce enough to amount to a certain per cent on the investment . -For when the landlord takes half of theproduce of the...

Farming in South Dakota [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Farming in South Dakota By Christine Beals . THE beautiful winter experienced so far in South Dakota is a cause for much thankfulness and is duly appreciated . It is also a matter , of some surprise that while abundance of snow and cold weather are reported all around us that South Dakota should be so favored . Yet we are , one year with another , just as . liable to have an open , pleasant winter here as we are to have a hard cold one with snow . At this writing , Jan . 21 , there is not a particle of snow to be seen any where . During the winter there has been several light falls of snow but none has stayed on the ground for any length of time . At present the great rolling prair e stretches brown and-sear in all directions , and the winter sunshine makes the day warm and mild , for midwinter . The general outlook for the state was never better than at present . Diversified farming is eoniing more generally in favor every year , and in this the real prosperty of the state is to be...

Whose Advice Must We Follow ? [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Whose Advice Must We Follow ? , By E . L . Vincent . FN dairying , as in everything else , there are at , the present time a ., multitude ¦ - of advisors . Take . some of our socalled leading , dairy papers arid read them carefully a few months and the chances are that one will find many contradictions in the treatment of the same subject . Not infrequently such contradictions- will -be found in the same issue of these journals . What is wrong ? Nothing at all !; -- . The gentlemen who write , if they be practical dairymen , are , giving the public-the benefit of their experience ., along the various lines they are following . . . . This , explanation holds good in every branch of farm labor , and the-result is rather mystifying to the man who is : trying his best to get to the front , by following the advice Of some one else ,. instead of making the observations upon his own account . What shall we do , then , in view of this multiplicity of advice ? Well , my answer to this questi...

In sending in his • drawings Mr . Hilton says : I raise a good many hogs , and I find the most conveninet plan to be as follows : Barn to be sixteen feet wide and eight feet high ; length , as needed by the builder .
