Why Tile Drain ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Why Tile Drain ? To a good many of our readers tile drainage is not a question of very great importance for the reason that their land does not need it except in the sloughs . With many of them these sloughs are simply draws marking the place where sloughs have once existed but are now choice land , and with many others the slough area comprises but a small portion of their farms . With others it is a matter of very great importance and they are losing money , plenty of it , each succeeding year because they have either not given proper attention to the subject of under-drainage , or else have not been able to carry out the dictates of their better judgment . Whether the area to be drained is large or small , it is well to get hold of the right theory first and a correct knowledge of the reasons why it will pay to tile drain . The first and most obvious reason is to get the surplus water out of the soil . Soil that is saturated with water can not be expected to grow crops of any gra...

Less-Corn and More Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Less-Corn and More Cattle . Farmers have been greatly disappointed for three years past in the low price of corn . Some two or three weeks ago we presented the view , without endorsing it to the fullest extent , that the low price of corn was largely due to the substitution in the last few years of cotton seed oil for lard and of cotton seed meal for corn , thus decreasing the home demand . We suggested further that it might be due to some extent to the limited extension of the corn area to the North and in the Southern states to the extent of , partially at least , supplying the home demand , and the substitution of alfalfa and the non-sac-charine sorghums for corn in western Kansas , Nebraska , and Colorado . We have another suggestion to make . Our readers will find if they look up the late reports of the Department of Agriculture , that our acreage of corn has increased very largely since 1894 and at the same time that there has been a large decrease in the numbers of cattle , s...

Plant Pumpkins . in tne [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Plant Pumpkins . in tne U some one nursery man United States had all the pumpkin seeds in the country and would advertise them with the usual enterprise , the farmers of the United States for the next two years would be crazy to go into pumpkin growing , even if the advertisement contained nothing more than the true statement of the value of the pumpkin as a stock food . It is none the less valuable now that the seed is in every ones hands and the recollection of the pumpkin pies made by our grandmothers , one of the pleasant remembrances of old age . There are few things that are more easily grown than pumpkins . They may be planted in the corn field with the corn , or , better still , about the time the corn is beginning to come up so that their vines will not interfere with cultivation , and in this way a catch crop , and more , one that costs nothing except the seed and the labor of planting them , can be secured . They may be grown in a patch by themselves planted in hills abou...

Water With a Rake . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Water With a Rake . We published sometime since a clipping from a professor from an Eastern college giving a very simple and easy lesson on the method of watering the garden with a rake . We hope our readers who work the garden have not overlooked or forgotten it . It is based on thoroughly scientific principles , the same which the farmer follows who prepares the seed properly and cultivates it on up-to-date methods . A thorough raking of the garden will do far more to promote the growth of the plant than any amount of watering , and it is a good deal more easily done .

Nature Fertilizes—Man Im -poverishes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Nature Fertilizes—Man Impoverishes . We can well conceive a time when the earth consisted of rock , water , and air . Mosses and lichens , frost and rain , took hold of the rock and crumbled it to dust The lowest forms of grasses grew , lived from the atmosphere , and perished , adding humus to the soil . Higher types of grasses appeared and so on from century to century , from age to age , till at last in the long periods characterized in the book of Genesis as a day , the earth was prepared for the herb yielding seed , followed by animal forms , and these again by man , who was to have dominion over them all . * • • During all this period natural forces were at work dissolving the minute rock contents of the earth , developing available potash , phosphoric acid , and lime . The legumes in their lower and higher forms were drawing nitrogen from the windu or heaven and storing it in the earth . Myriads of microbes of countless species were at work tearing down vegetable and animal s...

To Our Correspondents . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

To Our Correspondents . We have been greatly indebted to our correspondents during the past winter for their valuable and timely contributions on a very great variety of subjects . We hope they will not neglect to keep up their correspondence with the Farmer during the busy season . , We know they are tired , awfully tired . We know how hard it is when a man Is thoroughly tired in body to concentrate his attention and perform the labor of writing . Nevertheless , it is very important that . . ur readers generally should know what the farmer is thinking about ; what is going on on the thousands of farms reached by Wallaces Farmer . If the busy season affords less time for writing , it gives more subjects , and hence we suggest that communications be short and to the point Many a farmer who has splendid ideas falls to write for his favorite paper for the reason that he thinks he can not write for the press . This is a mistake , and a bad one . Do not bother about punctuation , capital...

No State Fair This Year . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

No State Fair This Year . The directors of the Agricultural Society during last week finally decided that in view of the Trans-Mississippi Exposition at Omaha this fall they would hold no state fair this year . They have taken time to investigate the subject fully corresponded with prominent farmers in different parts of the state , and announce this as their final conclusion . As stated by one of the directors , there was a very fair prospect under present conditions of the society being , some twelve or fifteen thousand dollars in the hole if they held a fair this year , and , therefore , they declined to take the responsibility . It was proposed to take the chances , provided the city of Des Moines would guarantee them a sufficient sum to justify them in taking the risk , but the directors expressed themselves as doubtful whether it would have been advisable to do so even had the guarantee been made . The decision of the directors is not very satisfactory to Des Moines , the lead...

The Maize Propaganda . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

The Maize Propaganda . We have heretofore called attention from time to time to the plan of what is called the Maize Propaganda , an organization in Chicago , the object of which is to extend the foreign market for corn . Mr . B . F . Snow , the secretary , in answer to a criticism , throws some new light on the object of this organization , which we place before our readers . The true policy , and the one which the American Maize Propaganda will urge , is the selling of as much as possible in the shape of meat and dairy products ; when that demand is filled , then as much as possible in the shape of corn food products , and giving little or no encouragement to the straight shipment of the raw grain for use abroad as cattle food , the use which now absorbs nearly all the corn we export . On this platform we want the active support of every corn grower . of the country . We are inclined to second the motion of the Indiana Farmer , to which paper the reply was made , to change the nam...

"The Lord Makes the Wheat Crop . " [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

The Lord Makes the Wheat Crop . About thirty years ago we were tiaveling by stage in Illinois and stopped for dinner at an eating house whicli was kept by a farmer . Chatting with him after dinner , out in the yard , we remarked on the promising appearance of the wheat crop at that time , about the middle of June , he looked at us a little bit , and replied : Stranger , the Lord makes the wheat crop . From the time that the seed leaves the hand until it comes back into the bushel , we have no control over it , and whatever we get is the gift of Providence . We have often thought of the remark of this observant farmer . He was speaKing particularly of spring wheat . Farmers are apt to conclude that the sea . sons have changed and spring wheat is less certain than it was thirty years ago . As a matter of fact , the seasons are about what they were then , and any changes to the disadvantage of the wheat crop , are the result of improper methods of culture . Then the soil was new , well...

On the Verge of War . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

On the Verge of War . We are as a nation now on the very ragged edge of war ; there is scarcely a possibility that it can be avoided . It is quite evident now that the foreign nations will not interfere . The ultimatum of the United States is presented in the following joint resolution agreed to by the Senate and House in the small hours of the morning of April 19 th : _ Joint resolution for the recognition ot the independence of the people of Cuba , demanding that the government of Spain relinquish its authority aud government ln the island of Cuba , and to withdraw Its land and naval forces from Cuba and Cuban waters , and directing the president of the United States to use the land and naval forces of the United States to carry these resolutions into effect . Whereas . The abhorrent conditions whicli have existed for more than three years in the Island of Cuba , so near our own borders , have shocked the moral sense of the people of the United States , have been a disgrace to Chr...

Weather and Crops For the Past Week . __ [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

Weather and Crops For the Past Week . __ The Iowa Weather and Crop Service has just issued its weekly bulletin giving reports in detail of the different counties of the state ; the following Is a synopsis : The past week was generally favorable for progress in farm work , and for growth of crops . The first half was cool , but the excess of temperature of the last half brought the average above normal . Showers on the 12 th and 13 th were quite well distributed , the larger measurements being reported in the eastern districts . The high temperature the latter part of the week developed fine showers on the 16 th and 17 th , giving the central and western districts a considerable amount of moisture . Seeding is completed , except in localities where the work was retarded by heavy rains . In the larger part of the state spring wheat , oats and barley are coming up in fine condition , and the work of preparing the ground for planting corn is well advanced . With warm weather planting wi...

The Omaha Exposition and the Breeders . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 22 April 1898

The Omaha Exposition and the Breeders . The breeders of the West are filled with righteous indignation over the announcement made a few days ago that the Omaha Exposition would give only medals instead of cash prizes for pivmiuins earned . We are very much surprised at the action of the boaid . A great deal of encouragement has been given to the promoters of this enterprise by the various Western states . Iowa has given a generous appropriation , appointed a committee of citizens to carry out her will , and has abandoned her own State Fair , and it is certainly very unjust to Iowa breeders to ask them at great expense to fit out herds for an exhibition , and add to the attractions to swell the receipts , and then put them off with medals only . It is scarcely necessary to say that the breeders will not put up with that sort of treatment . The American Short-horn Breeders Association , the Berkshire Association , and the South-down Breeders Association have all protested against it b...
