Fancy Fixings for Fowls [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Fancy Fixings for Fowls I dont believe in feeding fowls fancy fixings , said a friend to the writer ; it s not in their nature to have such things , and I believe they are better off without them . That is the view a good many farmers take of poultry , but why they should do so is hard to determine . In a state of nature all fowls have an infinite variety of feed , from insects and worms to grains , grasses and fruits , hardly two separate bits being alike . It is almost impossible for a poultry-keeper of today to furnish the variety that the jungle fowls , the ancestors of our common chickens , get in their native home in Upper India . Very few farmers object to fixing up feeds to increase the flow of milk in their cows or induce their hogs to eat a little more or keep their horses in good condition , yet not one of these animals has been bred so far . away from nature as the chickens in the barnyard . There is not nearly as much difference between the veriest razorback hog or penn...

NOTES OF THE DAY J [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
NOTES OF THE DAY J B ISMARCKS death , though not unexpected , has been a theme of universal interest during the past week . To the German empire the old prince stood like a bulwark for the fatherland , and there is a sense of half fear in the hearts of thousands who had grown to feel that while he lived the nation was safe , but that with his passing new dangers threaten the ship of state . Added to their grief is the belief that a grave injustice was done the old statesman by the young and self-opin-ionated emperor , who compelled the chancellor s resignation shortly after the death of the beloved Unser Fritz , which , it will be recalled , followed closely upon the demise of Emperor William I . It is impossible for the public to know all that led to that act upon the part of the boy emperor . But all know that Bismarck was imperious , brooking no interference , and that he assumed the role of dictator to the young man . William had ideas of his own , which could not be carried out...
The farmers Forum [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
The farmers Forum The Formers Forum Invites communications on all subjects from whatever point , of view , the editor of THE V OICE assuming no responsibility whatever for the Ideas expressed . No communication should exceed 300 words In length ., • the View of an Optimist To the Editor—What a fearful lot of problems are before us for solution at this time . I , have passed the three-score mark and I r have been a pretty close observer , , yet I do not think in all these three score years there has ever been a . time when there was such an array of important . matters demanding the attention of the . masses . When I speak of problems demanding solution I do not mean that these are questions that must be immediately settled or dire disaster will be the result . I take no stock in that ultra-fatlicallsin that proclaims that such and such measures must be at once taken or the country will go speedily to the dogs ! No ; we need not take into account the demagogical radical who would hav...
Some Crop Notes [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Some Crop Notes The wheat is damaged somewhat in localities and varies in weight from forty to fifty-eight pounds . Corn looking well , a heavy rain Friday and Saturday morning of last week will bring it out . About 10 per cent has been killed by chinch bugs , which early in the season moved from the wheat fields into the corn . The young crop of bugs on the corn is hatching . What damage they may do it is too early to determine . Oats rusted badly ; average ten bushels to the acre . Hay 10 per cent above an average crop and put up in good shape . Potatoes half a crop , excepting sweet potatoes , which are plenty . Apples a failure ; pears a full crop ; peaches a full crop , but rotting badly as they ripen . Fall plowing fine . Wm . G . Zoller . Centralia , 111 ., Aug . 1 . &gt; It is now given out by the secretary of agriculture that the wheat crop of Kansas may not exceed 50 , 000 , 000 bushels . A short time before the harvest he estimated it at 100 , 000 , 000 bushels . ...
The "Golden Hoof " [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
The Golden Hoof Sheep have again come into high favor with American stockmen and prices are constantly going up . A careful estimate made of the number of sheep west of the Missouri river shows that there are 30 , 200 , 000 sheep , including lambs , out of a total of 41 , 000 , 000 in the United States . Although the industry was never in a more . prosperous condition , the lamb crop does not show as large a percentage as usual . This is apparently dus to two reasons , the first of which is that owing to the rapid increase in the size of the flocks fully 90 per cent of the ewes of last year s lamb crop were retained for wool , and there was a scarcity of bucks , the increase in ewes being tally 50 per cent greater than the increase in the male sheep . In addition to this the almost universal prevalence of cold rains in most sections , except Texas , caused a mortality among the lambs of from 15 to 35 per cent . It is doubtful if the percentage of lambs throughout the district named ...
Attractive Appearances [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Attractive Appearances Many of our farmers who are prominent in agricultural matter in our county fail to realize the importance that should be given to having their farms present an attractive and neat appearance , writes Percy G . Skirven in the Buchanan ( Mich . ) Record . This matter was vividly impressed upon me by the contrast presented by two farms which I observed a short time ago , while riding through the country : The first farm was that of a man who was prominent in financial as well as agricultural matters , and I naturally formed a very favorable idea as to what I expected to find on that place , but my ideals were shattered by the appearance presented by this farm . The first thing that struck me forcibly was—indeed it is hard to say what was the most noticeable feature of this home . To begin , the fences were poor , the gates were fastened together with a chain , the yard untidy , the barn unpainted—wood color , no windmill and no shade trees . I passed on , wonderi...

The Beginnings of a Career [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
The Beginnings of a Career Some years back , perhaps thirty or more , a little lad was loitering along the street of an interior city . As he passed the shop of the local photographer a man came out and spoke to him . Do you want a job ? he asked . The boy said promptly , Yes , sir . It you get it , will you attend to it ? the man asked . Again the answer was , Yes , sir ! It is not a lively one . You will have to sit still and watch things , the man said . Do you think you can keep awake ? I can try , sir , the boy said ; so , after a little more talk , he got the job . It was not a lively one . He had to sit upon a housetop and watch a lot of photographic negatives , to make certain that they got just enough light and none too much . He did the work well . The photographer never caught him napping , no matter how suddenly he came upon him . In a little while he showed that he was as intelligent as he was trusty . Then the photographer noticed that the lad s clothes , though worn ,...
Gunpowder Jack ' s Cabin Boy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Gunpowder Jack s Cabin Boy Gunpowder Jack—what a name ! Yet it belonged to Sir John Narborough , one of the bravest of English seamen . He lived in the time of the Merry Monarch , and won more than one naval victory for England ; and the name was given him on account of his daring and dauntless courage . But the story that I am going to tell you is not about Gunpowder Jack himself ,, but about his cabin boy , who became a much more famous character even than the old admiral . Story ! . I wonder , if you have ever thought that story is only the word history with its head cut off ? And this story is really a . bit of history all about an interesting event and an interesting character , too . The event was a great naval battle between the English and Dutch fleets , fought on the North Sea one gray autumn day , more than two centuries and a quarter ago . Plucky little Holland dared contend with England for the mastery of the seas , and with a wellordered navy and several commanders of m...
