The War and Binding Twine . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

The War and Binding Twine . The Spanish war is likely to affect farmers in more ways than they think for . Since 1865 the business of the world has been developed wonderfully and nations are di awing closer together , especially on business lines , and it requires a war to show how closely even nations that seem to have little to do with each other are bound together in the way of business . For example , the war has already practically stopped the exportation of grain from Gulf ports . It has also interfered seriously with the exportation of live cattle , and our readers who have been preparing export steers for six months and have recently put them on the market have been losers to a considerable extent . The war has already advanced the price of grains of all kinds and will inevitably advance the price of pork products and also the price of a number of the farmers supplies . The most significant advance is likely to be in binding twine , and there is a possibility that there may ...

Raising Thoroughbred Short -horns by Hand . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

Raising Thoroughbred Shorthorns by Hand . Elsewhere in this issue will be found a letter from Mr . B . D . Converse , of Humboldt county , Iowa , explaining his method of raising his thoroughbred Short-horn calves by hand and the success which has followed it . We ask for the letter a careful reading on the part of farmers as well as Shorthorn breeders . For a good many years we have been urging breeders of improved cattle of the type of the grangers cow to adopt this method . For a long time it seemed as though we were talking to deaf ears . We have learned , however , that whenever a correct method is advocated in these columns , sooner or later farmers will begin to put it into practice . We have been dead sure all these years that the right thing for the owner of a small herd of improved cattle of the granger s type to do was to milk the cows , keep a strict account of the weight of the milk , and its percentage of butter fat , and give each individual cow a record , weeding out...

So , also , is the ln . entor who makes machinery that will double , tiehle and quadruple the rewards of the farmers toil . No machine haa had more influ _ ence upon the grain farm than the mowing machine . It does the weik for an army of men .

A Storm ' Cave . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

A Storm Cave . To W ____ u _ c _» FA — _ t _ I send you a description of a storm cave we built at the school house in our district this week . We have talked cave for a number of years , but never got any further with it until last week , when our sub-director took a trip around among the patrons of the school to see how many were in favor of a storm cave , and as all were anxious for a place of safety for teacher and scholars at school in case of a cyclone or tornado , he called at meeting at the school house the next afternoon , which about all in the district attended . The object of this meeting was to select a location and make preparation for the work . The school house is situated on a south and west slope , the door facing to the south . We located the cave just west of the south end of the school house with just enough room for teams to pass between cave and house . Last Monday was the day agreed upon to begin work . Five of us dug out the cellar , making it eight feet acro...

The Time to Plant Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

The Time to Plant Corn . To WALLACES FARMER . This is a subject that the masses seem far from having settled . Already we hear some talking of starting the planter in a few days , and when I ask , why the rush ? they say they have a late kind of corn and unless they get it in early are afraid of the frost Another thinks he will be short of feed and is in a hurry to get some corn planted so to have some early feed . Another says , I have a good deal to plant and only one planter , and must get at it early or I will be too late with some of it , and so on down the list . Nearly every one has some excuse for planting early . I have raised twenty-two crops of corn in Iowa and have not had any frosted corn , so I have almost ceased to think that such a thing might occur . I have raised some poor stands of corn by planting a little piece early so as to have some early feed , or , rather , to be ahead of the neighbors , would sound more like it . I planted some the tenth of June and had an...

Kerosene Emulsion . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

Kerosene Emulsion . Farmers will find kerosene emulsion valuable for killing lice on hogs , on cattle , and also for various other purposes . It may be made by dissolving half a pound of hard soap or a quart of soft soap in a gallon of boiling rain water , then add two gallons of kerosene , stir it will , or churn with a syringe or pump until it will adhere to glass without oiliness . When using it , dilute it with from ten to fifteen parts of water . It is said that good kerosene emulsion for immediate use can be made by mixing two gallons of coal oil with a gallon of sour milk . This , however , must be prepared every time it is needed , while the other can be kept an indefinite period .

a Problems in Corn Planting . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

a Problems in Corn Planting . To V / ALU -C IS FAS - IK . After a thorough preparation of the soil , the method of which we do not propose to discuss as it has been thoroughly gone over at institutes and In this journal , the problem of how to secure a good stand properly distributed Is the important item . It is to be supposed that all reading , up-to-date farmers are provided with good seed , so next comes planting and how to secure the proper number of stalks per acre . Work at the experiment stations has shown but slight difference between the hill and drill systems where full stands In the hills have been secured . At some of the stations a distance of four feet each way with four stalks ln a hill has been found to give good results with the large varieties of dent corn grown in the West , but this is an attainment impossible on the average Iowa farm as the idea of over-planting and thinning to a proper stand is impractical and the natural enemies of the corn plant have not yet...

Horticulture . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 6 May 1898

Horticulture . Communications to this department nre solicited . Questions on horticultural matters will be cheerfully answered . The Apple Tree Borers . There are two kinds of borers that are likely to make trouble in the orchards , and we speak of them a little in advance of the time of dealing with them in order that our readers may be on their guard . It is too bad to go to the trouble of planting out a young orchard and then having it ruined by these miserable pests . The round-headed borer deposits its eggs about June near the base of the trunk of the apple tree . The eggs hatch out and the young grub , or larva , makes its way through the outer bark to the inner bark , and takes about three years to develop . It works in the sap wood , where it forms flat , shallow cavities filled with sawdustlike castings . These indicate when and where the borer is at work . As it reaches maturity , it cuts a passage upward into the solid wood and then curves near the bark and enters the pu...
