The Culture of Asparagus [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

The Culture of Asparagus By H . W . Buckbee . T HERE is no easier vegetable to grow than : asparagus , and beds when once established yield more and pay better every season . As a long-distance shipping vegetable it ranks among the very best . The plain truth is this—it makes money for the grower , yields a-profit for the middleman : and , most of all , pleases the consumer . The Columbian Mammoth White is the most satisfactory variety in cultivation . Not only are the stalks of the largest size , but they are produced abundantly and very early . They are nearly clear white in , early growth and remain so in favorable weather until three or four inches above thesurface . This-sort commands rin- es--tra price , not only oh a fancy market , but from canners .-who find that when put up . under . a special brand it . . sells so readily at a higher price as to warrant them paying the grower an extra price for it . We prefer to use only well-grown two-year-old stock . The soil on which as...

Timely Topics [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Timely Topics Trade and Price Review By Jas . W . Wilson . AS -predicted in our last , the upward flurry in . the price of wheat has proved temporary : It was not based on any substantial condition , but was due : toi a speculative rush of the bulls . At the same time , there is no reason why the prevailing price , of wheat * and , in fact , ail . staple farm products . should-not be maintained , unless indeed some , flurry in the stock-market or panic should cause a rapid contraction of bank credits and cause a withdrawal of some of . the money now in circulation . We believe that a further advance in . prices , however , improbable . Our . tittle of average prices shows a slight gain for the week , standing 8386 as against 8293 for the-week ending January 28 th ; While the reported worlds production of wheat is much in excess of any previous y , $ ar ; at the same time the visible supply continues smaller , the worlds visible : supply for Feb .-1 st , 1899 , being 120 . 075 , 000 ...

After a Sugar Bounty [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

After a Sugar Bounty THE Illinois State Sugar Beet Association , composed mostly of farmers , last year carried on extensive tests of from one-fourth to several acre plats in the culture of sugar beets averaging about ten acres in such plats , in . each of the following places : Springfield ; Peoria , Decatur , Quincy , Galesburg , Rock Island , Champaign , Ottawa , Kankakee and Mattson . The results of these experiments have altogether been very satisfactory in percentage of sugar from 12 to 14 . In purity coefficient , the average was over 80 per cent , and in yield many of the plats have turned out from 12 to . 25 . tons of beets per acre . Those who have carried on-the experiments / and others who have watched them as well as hundreds of other parties throughout the state who have grown small plats of beets in the past two years for the Experiment Station , are all anxious that beet sugar factories be established within shipping distance , so they can get to growing beets . - Bu...

Got Pineapple Fever [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Got Pineapple Fever THE following is in part a letter , received- from Mr . E . ; M . Graves , who has thoroughly investigated the pineapple business : Have read Mr . Wilson s articles on the principal Industry in Florida with much Interest . What he learned about it on his trip tallies exactly . with what ! learned while there last winter , and ; the winter before . I have had the pineapple fever ever since and am Intending to go down In the spring and start a few near Orlando . You are no doubt aware that I spent some time at Green Cove Springs , and while there tried to interest the colonists in pineapples . I . could not get them to take hold of them . I believe that : If some one-had taken hold of it and demonstrated the fact that they could be successfully grown there it would not have been long until the town and country about G . C . S .. would have taken a wonderful start . The land on the Clinch grant , I think , Is just right for growing pineapples ,-and being situated so...

Southern Excursions [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 9 February 1899

Southern Excursions We are receiving a great many inquiries in regard to the next excursion to Chadbourn and Homewpod in the Carolinas . We are a little at sea as yet as regards rates , as the railroads have withdrawn all excursion rates for the time being . Negotiations are pending for , a renewal of rates , and as soon as secured ! due announcement will be made . The last excursion party were all pleased with the country ^ We believe with one exception all purchased land , and the party who did not buy was viewing the land for the purpose of speculation only and not to locate on it himself , and consequently did not get much encouragement . We are not seeking speculators . We are planning an excursion to view the new Florida settlement some time in March , providing we can get things in shape . by that time Later : As we go to press we have word from the railroad companies that assures us that our excursion rates will be restored and that everything will be all right for our excur...

Aunt Marcia , called Alice , can I bring pussy in ? She is catching cold , I know . She Is sneezing . Certainly , said . her aunt ; but kittens love the snow very much and enjoy playing in the drifts as much as any little boy or girl ; but let her come in if you wish , perhaps she will enjoy playing with . you better . • The children ran to the door and calling kitty , they were soon engaged in a merry romp . Alice and Willie Gray lived away among the mountains of New Hampshire , but Aunt Marcia had begged so hard for them to go for a visit to her home in the city , thatshe had gained th...
