Clemency to Eagan [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

Clemency to Eagan SOME of the newspapers criticise the President for his clemency towards Commissary General Eagan . The court found him guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer of the army . ThePresident approved the finding but instead of carrying out the sentence of : dismissal lie commuted it to suspension from rank andVduty six years . This is a pretty bitter punishment to an ambitious officer who has been many , years working up to his present rank and had reached an age when-he might hope to enjoy the distinction he had won by hard service . <¦¦ ¦ ¦¦ ¦ -. President McKinley mentions his honorable record and mitigating circumstances . It is surely an honorable record to have been brave in many battles , to have seen hard ; service during the civil war and > on the frontier since for many years and been steadily promoted for good conduct . until . lie . was at the head of a great department . ¦ .- • . • : ¦ : And were there no mitigating circumstances ?

A Veteran ' s Right [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

A Veteran s Right S OME foolish and utterly unjust criticisms have appeared in ¦ the newspapers . against our ambassador to Mexico , General Powell Clayton , because he donned his brigadier , general s . uniform when he presented hi ® credentials to President Diaz . . .. . : ; ; - _; The simple facts are that it was legal and right and wholly in good form for General Clayton to wear the uniform he wore when in active service in the volunteer army of 1861-5 . His star was won bygallantry and heroic service . He sacrificed an arm to his country , ; and needs no-, outwiard decoration . But there isa United States statute—Section 1 , 266 , Revised Statutes—by which officer s of the-volunteer army of the civil war were authorized to wear the uniforms of-their , highest rank on occasions of ceremony . The law was introduced by ~ Senator Henry Wilson , of Massachusetts , then chairman of the Military Committee . It also provides that these volunteer officers shall be addressed by the appro...

Mexico and Coffee [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

Mexico and Coffee W . E are receiving many inquiries in regard to coffee growing in Mexico . Several concerns also have been started in Chicago , the promoters of which promiselarge dividends from the proceeds from coffee plantations in Mexico . The facts of the case are that at present prices there is no great profit in the business and the promise of big dividends will never be realized . We were asked some time ago to promote such an enterprise and to local te a settlement in the coffee regions of Mexico ,, but declined because after investigation we were satisfied that the . investors would realize but little or no profit . The fiscal year ending June , 1898 , shows a substantial advance in the quantity of coffee produced in Mexico over the previous year . * The reports were 288 , 593 cwt . as against 251 , 826 cwt . The state of Vera Cruz is the largest coffee producer , its output being 106 . 484 cwt . Cordoba , comes second ; with 40 , 944 cwt . These are . official figures ....

Clover [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

Clover G LOVER seed may be sown on a crop of wheat , rye or oats and harrowed in about the middle of February , or as soon thereafter as the weather will permit . This may be considered early for spring sowing , but it has been found that the damage from freezing is apt to be less than from drouth when sown later . The harrow will tear up and destoy some plants , but the benefit to the residue will more than make up the damage . Some people advocate cross harrowing . You must be your own judge as to whether or not it will pay in your case . It would , of course , make it better for the elo . ver . About fifteen pounds of seed broadcasted per acre will be the proper quantity .. Before sowing the seed , the following fertilizers may be mixed and broadcasted per acre : 300 to 600 pounds of acid phosphate and 40 i ) to 800 pounds of kainit . The smaller quantities will produce fine results , but the larger can be profitably employed . In addition to the aboye , from thirty to sixty poun...

Stock That Pays [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

Stock That Pays O CCASIONALLY we find a farmer who will say : it s all right for the man who can afford it to keep blooded stock , but the kind I keep pays well enough . When we meet that kind of a man it is useless labor to argue the . question of keeping pure-bred stock of any kindi He is contented with the scrub , and a contented man should not be disturbed . : The only way such men are ever convinced of the error of their way is to show them , , by example , that they are wrong . For a young man it is a serious mistake to begin with anything but the best . It is not necessary to spend a large extra sum for animals of high culture and fancy pedigree , because they are not always the best for his purpose . The best for him is tiie sort that , under good care , will turn the grass on his pasture fields , the grain and . hay . grown on his farm and labor expended in caring for it into the most money . rure-brcd stock is plentiful enough now that any one may make a start in the right...

Feeding the Dairy Cow * [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 16 February 1899

Feeding the Dairy Cow * , By E . JN . U 0 DD . EIRST ; let us consider what nutrients are necessary for the dairy cow , the amount of each and , their ; value , as a whole ! Protein is of ^ thp first importance ; it is the element in food that goes to build up the animal , makes the muscle , skin ; hair , hoofs and nerve organization . In the dairy cow it nourishes the mammary glands , and makes possible a large flow of milk . In this section we must get our protein from our pasture grasses and in our clover hay and corn crop , though in the latter the per cent of protein is very low . In our grains we find ! it is oats , corn and barley , but usually in the last the per cent is too / high-to . make it advisable to use it in the dairy . In recent years we have had several foods given us by the manufacturers of grain products such as oat feed from oatmeal mills , gluten feed and gluten meal from the gluten or grape sugar factories , corn heart meal and sugar meal from hominy factorie...

The Missouri Dairymen AT the Missouri State Dairymen s meeting Euclid ) N . Cobb , known as Buff Jersey , said : There is no other business that requires the knowledge that dairying does . The successful dairyman is born ; has adaptability along this particular line . In the first place , he needs to hav-e the bump of kindness well developed . The average dairyman with forty or fifty cows must have hired help , and he must expect to put up with a great deal . My bump of patience was so small that I dare not take up dairying with hired help . My family has now grown in numbers and age so much that T , am able tb carry on dairying without Mredi help . I have spoken of kindness . Kindness gives the cows comfortable quarters , good stabling with good water in winter , and good- shade in the pasture in summer . A daily milk record should be kept . This is not so difficult as it . looks . The record should be by means . of a large chart divided into columns for weightt of milk , percentag...
