The Horse In Sunshine and shadow . During the later 60 _ J . the 70 s , the 80 s , and up until about 90 or 01 , the sun shone clear and bright on the horses of the West The horse advertisements took the lead ln the , agricultural papers and there was no kicking at the prices charged for advertising . Many of the county seats in Iowa became known as horse towns . The farmer , when he came to town , talked horse ; the merchant the banker , and the Jawyer talked whenever they had no special business of their own on hand ; and even the preacher talked about as much horse as religion , and some times a good deal more when be met his acquaintances at the post office or went out to the country on pastoral visitations . At the stock breeders meetings , the horsemen were serenely happy , while the sbeep men , the swine breeders , and the cattle breeders had their years of discouragement as well as their years of hopefulnes .

Purchasing Thoroughbred Cattle by Mall . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

Purchasing Thoroughbred Cattle by Mall . There is a vast amount of memoy spent each year in traveling for the purpose of buying thoroughbred cattle , which , it seems to us , might be saved if there was a sufficiently high sense of honor and superior skill In breeding stock of this kind . Farmers will frequently spend from ? 25 to ?_ 0 in purchasing a single individual which probably cost them not more than . 80 or $ 100 , thus adding from 25 to 30 per cent to the price . If tiie farmer nad sumcient con _ denc 2 , n tlie integrity and skill of the breeder to feel safe m buying ace > -. \ llug to written description , this m gn : all be saved , and in addition much valuable time . The man who has given fro r n flftten to twenty-five years of his life to the study of breeding and feeding cattle should be able , by describing the breeding and the individual merit ot different animals , to fit the buyer out more completely and satisfactorily than he is able to do himself . He...

The Growth of" Monopoly . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

The Growth of Monopoly . No thoughtful man can avoid feeling a deep concern over the developments within the last few weeks in the line of monopolies . The Plerpont Morgan syndicate has now complete control of the anthracite coal output of the entire United States and can fix absolutely the price of hard coal in every home and in every factory from the Atlantic to the Rocky mountains , a power greater than that wielded by the Czar of Russia . The effort is now being made to combine the bituminous coal Interests from Pittsburg to Chicago -with those of Che anthracite , and with some prospect of of success . This , in fact , is necessary in order to make the anthracite combination work . If this should succeed , then the entire manufacturing interests of the country will be in the grip of a monopoly , which means an advance in prices to the consumer of every manufactured article ln the United States , a species of wholesale robbery that is appalling . Even now a combination is being f...

Freight Rates on Improved Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

Freight Rates on Improved Cattle . There has been a long standing controversy between the breeders and buyers of improved cattle and other improved live stock and the railroads with reference to what are reasonable freight rates . The railroads charge an arbitrary rate of a ton . for an animal a year old , and over , without reference to its weight , on the ground that they have to give it , in most cases , the exclusive use of the car , that the stock is ihigh priced and the risk gieat in some instances charging in addition the passenger fare , or half fare , of an attendant They complain that even this does not pay them , all of which is perhaps true . The breeders and farmers side of It is that , while it may not pay in the beginning as a single proposition , nevertheless it does pay them largely in the end by reason of the improvement in weight of the progeny of this stock , by reason of the higher value wehich it brings on the market , and the Increase in the wealth of the farm...

No Millet for Horse Feed . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

No Millet for Horse Feed . Tlie practical experience regarding the injurious effect of . millet upon horses has been proved lately by feeding experiments . The tests were made on two mares . One of these became very lame during the time over which the feeding with millet extended ; she also suffered from retention of urine . The other mare , when fed on millet for about three months would become so lame in the joints of her hind legs that it was almost impossible for her to walk . When feeding millet was abandoned , she would recover , and the lameness was again produced by millet feeding . After about two years of alternate millet and hay feeding she became practically worthless . Millet produces ajv Increased , unhealthy action of the kidneys and causes lameness , swelling of , and infusion of blood into , the joints . It softens the bones and destroys the bone texture .

Corn In Canada . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

Corn In Canada . The Bureau of Industry of the Province of Ontario , Canada , has published a neat little pamphlet containing statistics of the productions of that province or state which we have looked over with some interest . It appears from this that Ontario actually produces a greater yield of most kinds of grains than do the Western states . For example , the average of winter wheat for the past five years has been 19 . 6 bushels ; for ten years , 20 bushels ; and for fifteen years , 19 . 9 Dushels , while the average of spring wheat has been for fhe same periods 13 . 3 , 15 . 8 , and 15 . 2 bushels , respectively . The surprising thing , however , is that corn even in that northern country very far surpasses both in yield and price per acre the yield of the Northwest , the average of five years , 1892-190 , being 70 bpshels , and the market value $ 16 . 52 , wliich is about double the yield and price per acre of the corn crop for the same years in the Western states . There i...

Kidney and Bladder Troubles Quickly Cured . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

Kidney and Bladder Troubles Quickly Cured . You May Have a Sample Bottle of the Great Discovery , Dr . Kilmers Swamp-Root Sent Free by Mali . Men and women doctor their troubles so often without benefit , that they get discouraged and skeptical . In most such-cases serious mistakes are made in doctoring and in not knowing what our trouble is or what makes us sick . The unmistakable evidences of kidney trouble are pain or dull ache in the back , too frequent desire to pass water , scanty supply , smarting irritation . As kidney disease advances the face looks sallow or pale , puffs or dark circles under the eyes , the feet swell and sometimes the heart beats badly . Should further evidence be needed to find out the cause of sickness , then set urine iside for twenty-four hours ; if there is a sediment or settling it is also convincing proof lhat our kidneys and bladder need doctoring . A fact often . overlooked , is that women suffer as much from kidney and bladder trouble as men do ...

The Farmers and the Pooling Bill . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

The Farmers and the Pooling Bill . A prominent farmer ol Tama county , Iowa , writes us as follows : I have read carefully and with pleasure your timely editorials on the pooling bill , and I think your exposition of Dbe danger of such a bill , lis iniquituous results , the consolidated influences of business interests and associations that will join hands with tiie railroad to _ _ . __ lliis bill through Congress , ought to arouse tlie people to notion and to a protest against the legalizing of . pooling . In these days of corporation aggressiveness nothing _ Uoit of eternal vigilance will secure to the people their rights , and any relaxation of this watclif u _ ness in guarding their interests is sure lo result in their being wronged by unjust legislation . The inter-state commerce law should be made to produce the results that its friends Intended it should , and so framed if possible to stand the tests of tlie courts . The farmers of Iowa should wake up on this question , and I...

Cattle Prospects . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898

Cattle Prospects . A correspondent from Webster county , Iowa , writes as follows : I wish your opinion as to the future of the oattle business . I have forty . head , four cows , the rest three-year-olds , two-year-olds , and yearlings , and it is more than my farm will support . I some times think they are the top , and then again I think that on account of the hog cholera people do not want pork and that beef will be in demand , and the market is not yet over-done . What Is your opinion on the subject ? The present situation is as follows : Feeding cattle are very high ; too high , as compared with the prices of the finished product . If , therefore , we had two s and three s In excess of the capacity of the farm , we would sell them , and would have done so last fall . If tliey are of first-class quality , we do not think there would be any loss in feeding them provided a man had the corn of his own . If of Inferior quality we would make a sale and sell them to some person Who t...
