The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
The Week Spain s reply to the terms of peace offered by the administration has been received after many delays and hitches . It is a document of 2 , 000 words , and though the cabinet members who have seen it are under the seal of secrecy , it lias cropped out that the profuse , intricate and obscure diplomats language of the dons is employed in a way to embarrass those who had hoped for a frank answer and may hinder the final settlement of peace . It is declared , however , that a protocol has been decided upon by the cabinet , so drawn as to compel Spain to sign or refuse to sign , and this will be presented at once . The protocol , it is Understood , will declare an armistice upon the terms laid down in our terms as first offered to Spain , and if this is signed will be the basis for future negotiations . If Spain refuses to sign or delays signing for an unreasonable length of time , the offers made will be withdrawn and the war pressed with greater vigor than ever . It is . said...
The Farmer ' s Day at Hand [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
The Farmer s Day at Hand There is no longer any doubt concerning the immediate outlook for the farmer . Every indication is that prices are going to be fair and the profits from agriculture such as to make farming a lucrative occupation . The years just past have been such as to try the skill of the best farmers , and those who have not taken advantage of modern methods and machinery have had a hard time , indeed . We do not expect to have universal agreement as to the return of good times . When times get so good that no one will complain that farming does not pay the millenium will have arrived . The average farmer does not make money even in the best years . The average crop of corn in this country is only twentyfour bushels to the acre , and the average crop of wheat one-half this . The average cow makes less than 100 pounds of butter in a year and the average hen lays but three dozen eggs in twelve months , and all of these at a time when prices are lowest . These returns are n...

Better Times Ahead [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Better Times Ahead One of our subscribers writing us from a Western state the other day , took occasion to mention the fact that , We havent seen any of that Mark Hanna prosperity out this way ! Well , it s pretty safe that he never will ; Mark Hanna and all the other politicians on earth cannot change by one jot or tittle the underlying causes that make for prosperity . Broadly speaking , material prosperity follows only the application of labor to the resources of nature ; it comes only when honest manhood lays hold upon the forces which a generous Creator has supplied ; puts itself en rapport with the deep things of God , and works out the tasks set for it to do . However , if our correspondent will stop and consider he will see that he is mistaken , even if in his own individual case he has seemed to experience no improvement . All of the unemployed are not yet at work , but where are the armies of 1893-91 ? They have disappeared . The strike is still used as a weapon , but cont...
A Mile in 1 : 59 1-4 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
A Mile in 1 : 59 1-4 A generation ago 2 : 40 was the limit of speed for races in harness and men not yet old can remember when the phrase , Two-forty and a-coming was a common expression for great speed . Later Dexter reduced the record to 2 : 17 % and Robert Bonner bought him for $ 50 , 000 , because he had an ambition to own the fastest harness horse in the world . Afterward Mr . Bonner bought Goldsmith s Maid for the same reason and from that time was kept busy buying record breakers . Year by year the problem of making two-minute time has come nearer and nearer being solved and the rivalry between pacers and trotters grew fiercer and fiercer and men disputed whether the trotter or the pacer would eventually hold the record for speed . One horse after another became champion until at last the fight was narrowed down to Joe Patchen and Star Pointer . Last year Star Pointer , at Glens Falls , N . Y ., cut the record from 2 : 00 % to 1 : 59 % , lowering it a full second and winning ...
Let Reform Be Thorough [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Let Reform Be Thorough One of the most gratifying evidences of agricultural progress in Illinois during the past decade has been the steady advance of its dairy interests . Today throughout the world Elgin butter stands representative of the interest in the United States , and though there is just as good butter made in a dozen other states , the commercial energy which has accompanied the industrial growth in this state has made Illinois famous everywhere for her dairy products . Whatever has been done is due to private enterprise , and we believe that to private enterprise will be due the advance of the future , yet the demand of the Elgin Dairy Report for a state dairy commissioner is one which commands consideration . Our contemporary points out the entire absence of any official notice of the dairy industry in this state with more than a million cows and hundreds of millions of dollars invested in one way and another in dairying and calls for a commissioner whose business it sh...
Some Side Results From Sugar-Beet Culture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Some Side Results From Sugar-Beet Culture fesxs ? CSXS ? S 3 XK ^?^ 3 ^ SX 5 ^ ONE of the most important publications which ever has emanated from the agricultural department is the 1 Speeial Report on the BestSugar Industry in the United States , copies of which have just been received . So important did congress consider the work that by joint resolution it was ordered that there be printed 60 , 000 copies of House Document No . 396 , 55 th congress , being a Special Report on the Beet-Sugar Industry in the United States , 27 , 000 copies for the use of the house of representatives , 27 , 000 copies for the use of the senate , and 20 , 000 copies for the use of the department of agriculture . We urge upon our readers that they spare no time in preferring requests for this invaluable book , sending either direct to Secretary Wilson or to their members of congress . The book is divided into two parts , the first consisting of very elaborate reports from Dr . H . W . Wiley , chemist ...
Specialty Farming [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Specialty Farming When we speak of a specialty farmer we usually think of a man-who confines his effort to some one tiling . This is not true specialty farming . The specialty farmer is not in the same position as the specialty dealer in merchandise . If a farmer were to confine his operations to one single crop he would be idle too much of the time to make money , unless he should be favored by exceptional environments . The bonanza farmer in the Northwest makes his sole crop wheat , but his force of hands must lie idle a great part of the year or seek other work upon which to put in the time . In the corn belt the farmers who grow corn exclusively spend a great deal of time in idleness because taking care of their special crop does not require their full time . The corn grower begins in the spring and is kept pretty busy until July , after which he has nothing to do until harvest time conies . This occupies a few weeks and then comes another time of idleness until the crop is to b...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Agriculture Surface vs . De « p Manuring For several years the writer was an advocate of surface manuring , that is , of placing the manure at or very near the surface . And this was lus cou / se of reasoning : Rains soak into the deeper soil and carry much of the strength of the manure deep into the soil ; and the deeper the manure is placed the faithe : will its strength be taken down . A great , part of . this soluble manure is thin taken beyond- the reach of crop roots before the soil has filtered it out of the water , hence it is lost . But experience and observation have materially . changed his views , a :: d mad- 1 him an advocate of the practice of putting manure in deeply , for the following reasons : First . —Unless manure is applied very thickly—far more thickly , in fact , than the average farmer can afford to apply it—practically all of its strength that is taken up by the water that leaches through it , is filtered out by the soil before the water has passed more than...
Reasons Why We Underdrain [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Reasons Why We Underdrain It is , explains The Drainage Journal : To get the excess of water out of the soil . To prevent the surface washing of the soil . To save the humus of the soil . To save the fine particles of the soil . To save the fertility brought up by the capillary action of the soil . To save the fertility brought down out of the air by rainfall to the soil . A drained soil is ready for the plow several days in advance of soil not drained . A drained soil is eight or ten degrees warmer and is more easily made ready for the seed . Is deeper , allowing the feeding roots to penetrate as deep as the tile are laid for food and moisture . A drained soil is ready to cultivate sooner after a . rainfall . A drained soil is less injuriously affected by wet or dry weather . A well underdrained soil will increase the crop productions from 10 to 50 per cent—sometimes more . A drained soil is in the best possible condition to grow maximum crops with intelligent husbandry .

Results of Experiment Farming [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Results of Experiment Farming There is perhaps no more interesting and valuable exhibit at the TransMississippi and International exposition , now being held at Omaha , than that of the North Carolina State Horticultural society . This exhibit is situated in the Agricultural building , and in our opinion is far superior to the average exhibit of horticultural societies . The large collection of photographs and fine specimens of fruits and vegetables , not to mention the water-color paintings , are bound to catch and hold the attention of visitors , and the farmers who visit the exposition , if they see but this exhibit , will be amply repaid for whatever trouble and expense they may have been at in getting there . A short account of this exhibit at Omaha will be interesting to many readers , especially to thrifty and practical farmers , who want to keep posted on the progress that is being made in the use of artificial forms of plant food , and the value of experiments in modern far...
When to Cut Timber [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
When to Cut Timber A timber cut for purposes where durability is a consideration is worth from two to four times as much if cut between July 15 and August 15 , as the same would be cut in January to April . If a tree is cut after the starch which enters into its chemical composition has changed to sugar , say in March , the worms , being very fond of this sweet , become destructive to the wood ; but if cut in July , after the completion of the spring growth , there is no sugar in the sap or wood and they seek some more savory food . Another reason is because if cut when the sap Is rich in sugar the fermentive process changes the sugar into an acid , which is the very first stage of decay , and if decay is thus early initiated is it any wonder that posts and ties do not last as they would if cut when these conditions could not possibly exist ? In 1860 a fence was set with post split from an oak cut when the leaves were of full size and vigor . Twenty-two years afterward this fence wa...
The Way It Works a [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
The Way It Works a A Michigan subscriber in renewing his subscription adds some forcible remarks about the condition in which fruit growers find themselves .. He says : In order that you can . fully understand the conditions that I am placed in , will give you a few facts and figures . The township of which I am a resident is principally composed of five to thirty-acre fruit farms , and owing to the nature of soil , location and size of farms , we are compelled to depend wholly on fruit , the sale of which must depend on commission merchants . Now the actual cost of harvesting a crop of strawberries or blackberries is as follows : Picking , 20 cents a case ; case , 8 cents ; freight , 5 cents , commission on a case , when it sells for 40 cents , 4 cents ; cartage , 1 cent ; making a total of 38 cents , without cost of production and packing . June 19 , 1898 , f made a heavy shipment of strawberries , which were divided between several Chicago commission firms . The account sales sho...
Institute Notes [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
Institute Notes The following extract from a letter from L . N . Beal , director of Farmers institute for the twentieth district of Illinois , gives some hints worth considering by institute managers everywhere . Mr . Beal writes : I am still working in the Farmers institute cause . I intend to have a delegate meeting of one delegate from each county in my district to arrange a plan and outline the work for the coming season . We want to arrange our dates so a speaker can attend more than one meeting while here from a distance . AVe must systematize our work to get the best results . There are ten counties in every district and it covers much territory and I find it takes much time and work , but I enjoy it and my pay comes from the meeting with the wideawake , enterprising farmers , and the friendships I form among them . Last winter I spent over thirty days of my time in this work , for expenses only . I believe the Illinois Farmers institute is doing a good work , and will do bet...
ALL ABOUT THE FARM [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 13 August 1898
ALL ABOUT THE FARM Take an odd day soon and oil the harness . Take it to pieces and wash thoroughly in hot water to remove grease and accumulated gum . Before thoroughly dry oil with neatsfoot oil , working the oil into the leather , and dry in the shade . If this is done once a year the life of the harness will be doubled . It pays to sow rye among the corn , even when the field is to be put in corn again next year . The roots of , £ he rye prevent the escape of nitrogen and work all winter to get plant food in the most available shape for the coming crop . Besides , rye pasture is a good thing to have on a farm early in the spring . The most successful farmer is the one who follows a regular system of rotation , clover always being one of the series of crops . Every farmer should know just what is going to be in a certain field during any given year . Rotation , as compared to the hit-and-miss style , is as system is to chaos . Go over the clover meadow that is coming on in the wh...
