A GREAT FARMING STATE THE VALLEY OF THE NILE DWINDLES IN COMPARISON WITH THE VALLEY OP THE PLATTE . WHERE THE SOIL IS IS FAT AND BLACK , THE KIND THE CEREALS LIKE BEST N EBRASKA is pre-eminently a farming state , It owes its greatness to its rich and easilysubdued prairies . It has one of the best soils in thc world . The Spanish adventurer , Coronado , who , in 1541 , wandered across thc plains northward into what is now Nebraska , described the soil as fat and black . Such it is , productive of the cereals and grass ; and it is the easiest to turn over with thc spade and plow . The state hap , too , a healthful climate , conducive to physical labor . For these reasons it has attracted a vast agricultural population . For eigners by hundreds of thousands have settled in its teeming valleys . Multitudes also of people from the East and the Mississippi Valley have heard the call of the West , and found homes in the Antelope State . A majority of these immigrants were tillers of the s...
THE WEATHER BUREAU'SSERVICE TO THE FARMER [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 May 1909
THE WEATHER BUREAUSSERVICE TO THE FARMER By Willis J . Moore , Chief of the United States Weather Bureau , Washington WILLIS L . MOORE CHIEF OF THE UNITED STATES WEATHER BUREAU 1 SUPPOSE that the weather forecaster is the most widely read author in the world ; certainly he can claim that his works have a more definitely practical value to the people than the productions of any other writer . Whenever a cool wave is announced , for instance , growers and shippers of produce immediately make provision for it . Whenever the storm signals go out over the gulf or oa the Atlantic or on the Great Lakes , vessels of commerce make provision to gain protection . Our marine insurance people have estimated that one West India hurricane , without the government signals , would leave a wreckage of three to five million dollars to be settled . A very hrge loss would result on the Great Lakes without those signals . When the fruit interests of California get warning f the approach of a freeze , the...
ALL AROUND THE FARM [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 May 1909
ALL AROUND THE FARM THfi VALUE OF THE SILO The value of a silo is not as generally recognized as it should be in thc corngrowing states . In the North , where corn stalks usually are scarce in winter , the value of preserving them in a palatable , succulent condition has been recognized and adopted among dairy farmers . The silo holds just the same place in the economy of preserving food for our live stock that the fruit jar does in the economy of preserving food for the human family . Few people would think of doing away with the fruit cans and jars and going back to the dried fruits and vegetables of our grandfathers . Nor is the progressive farmer doing this in stock feeding . In feeding his live stock with the use . of the silo , thc farmer has the best and cheapest feed grown in the world , that is . corn and alfalfa . It is admitted that corn silage and alfalfa hay make an ideal ration for both dairy cows and growing animals , as the silo provides the rich , succulent ration w...
THE FARM PHILOSOPHER [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 May 1909

Let the merchant advertise , The farmer fertilize , The preacher spiritualize And the lawyer talk olies . Mark Twain says , If you don t butt in you wont get in . Neow is a good time tew set daown an rite out a set uv good resolutions an reeTorms fer each one uv yeour nabora . Sign the following ; then live up to it : I believe in the gospel of work ; I be lieve that the only happiness comes from genuine hard work , honestly directed for the purpose of benefiting someone other than myself ; I shall henceforth secure all the benefits possible through this means .
THE DAIRY FOR PROFIT [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 May 1909
THE DAIRY FOR PROFIT BULK SUPPIY AND The PUBLIC HEALTH By Or . Park In order to keep milk free of certain poisons called ptomaines it must be kept at a low temperature , not above SO degrees F While such bacteria as will grow at comparatively low temperature will not injure adults , they will affect young childvcn and cause various troubles . These arc especially apt to occur when old milk is fed raw , while heating ( boiling or pasteurizing ) somewhat neutralizes the evil effects . It will be a surprise to many to know that out of 10 , 000 infants examined in New York , 8 , 328 were breast fed ; 895 were partly breast fed with some other food in addition , and the remainder were fed GIVE YOUR MILK CANS FREQUENT GUNNINGS entirely on artificial food . It is interesting to note that the proportion of deaths among children under one year was by far the smallest among those which were breast fed , while those fed either on very clean raw milk or pasteurized milk came next ; the ravages ...

DE LAVAL SEPARATORS MAKE THE BEST BUTTER The one purpose of every thinking buyer of a cream separator is the making of the most and the best cream possible , whether for home buttermaking , creamery patronage , or any other use to which cream is put . It is possible to claim almost everything for the various makes of cream separators , but the one indisputable fact , that would-be competitors do not even attempt to get around is the unquestionable superiority of the DE LAVAL machines in the making of the best butter . Year after year , dating back to the invention of the ALPHADISC system of DE LAVAL bowl construction ,, butter made by users of DE LAVAL machines has scored highest and won all higher awards in every large and thoroughly representative butter contest throughout the world . Beginning with the first great annual contest of the NATIONAL BUTTERMAKERS ASSOCIATION in 1892 and ending with the 1908 contest , not only the HIGHEST but every anywhere near high award has been made...
