QThe Ethics of Public Sales . ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
QThe Ethics of Public Sales . ? Every business baa its ethics or its separate system of morals peculiarly a-dapted to that business and evolved by tne experience of the best men in the business . The doctors have their unwritten cotlo of ethics which covers their treatment of each other under all sorts of drcumsrtanc-es , the lawyers have theirs , the preachers have theirs , and so have the merchants . There is a- code ot ethics that covers public sales . It is unwritten , as are all such codes , being in fact the application of the principles of morals to the particular circumstances and conditions . We will try to state briefly the code of ethics that should govern in public sales of live stock . B , The Property of A . M .

A Chance for Young Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
A Chance for Young Farmers A good many young farmers when they notice the price of land and the conroararHvely f-mralll returns secured by the most of farmers think the problem of getting ahead In the world on a farm of their own is one almost impossible of solution . Mr . T . B . Terry , of Ohio , the well known writer on agricultural topics , furnishes us a practical Illustration on this point . Speaking of Uncle Henry s Letters to the Parm Boy , he says : My son is now twenty-five , and we can fuffly appreciate every word on pages 82 and 83 . We paid &gt; him wages as soon as he was of age , encouraged him to put his earnings at Interest , and then Invest in stock . He has worked and thought hard and the result is , as you say , -astonishing . So many young men now think there is no chance . Roberts stock to-day , or next spring , as he has feed to winter them , would bring him probably $ 900 , his house is nicely furnished , and he has some money at Interest and more in ...
An Important Decision . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
An Important Decision . One of the superior courts of Illinois has recently given an important decision with reference to the practice prevailing among the live stock commission men of Chicago . Ten or twelve years ago it was the custom of these commission men to divide commissions with farmers in order to induce shipments . A rule of the Stock Exchange prohibited this and commission firms were organized among leading shippers of the West , one of whom movsT * d to OhI &lt;* ago and transact ed the business for them and their neighbors and acquaintances . In order to prevent this the Live Stock Bxhange required the members of the company to take out memberships ln the Bxhange , thus practically breaking up the country firms and compeiUng tlhe payment of the large coaiHnlssfOrjfj And now comes the court with a decision to tlhe effect that these and like practices are an interference with the freedom of trade and in the nature of a monopoly , and hence not in accordance with t...

More About Grinding * Feed . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
More About Grinding * Feed . So ttaJJAaaf Vxxmxxi , That lt pays to grind feed has been a settled fact with me for many years , and for some years have ground more than 95 per cent of all grain fed to horses and cattae . Dont think it pays to grind grain for hogs except for slopmaking . When feeding grain to cattle , there is a saving of more than . » per cent by grinding , and then the convenience and satisfaction of having things as we -want them . TOien for ¦ horses-there is nothing quite so nice as ground feed for them . If in -working season tbey are brought in warm , tney will eat the ground feed very slowly , while with like conditions , they • mteht eat the whole grain too fast for their own good . It is true that many wiH keep horses in good shape on whole grain , and , perhaps , a corii diet at that , but ear corn is the last thing horse In the shape of grain , I feed a in -fact , a corn diet in any fa *™!* 5 * * the best for a horse , neither is It good for a man .

A Cheap Shed . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
A Cheap Shed . ToW ± UAa * aTAM * MaA As winter is generally coiislderea to be the time ot the year for farmers to moke plane for the following season , I will give my plan lor making a cheap , warm , and ¦ convenient ^ shed , and especially for hogs : Take stout posts , about 10 feet long with &lt;* rotohes at the top , and set them in the ground about eight feet apart , oacb way . In the crotches Say good , stout sleepers , and across these Hghterpotes , dose enough together to prevent the straw from falling through . Now , put your grain stacks in such a way that the straw is blowed ( using a wind stacker ) , on and around all but the south side of the shed , and you have a shed that lis probably not a thing of beauty nor a joy forever , but Is , as long as it lasts , second to none in point of cheapness and warmth . Of course , it must be fenced on all but the south side , and also movable panels of of fence put around to keep stock from breaking ( through the sides . It...
Care of Straw Stacks . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Care of Straw Stacks . IXtyiAVbACWt rajuorj-i I believe I can give the readers of Wallaces Farmer a . valuable hint on taking care of straw stacks . Many straw stacks are at least ono-half lost by the stock eating in on one side and the stack falling down after It bas been eaten into a third or more . It not infrequently happens tnat animals , young anlnials especially , are seriously injured or perhaps killed when the stack falls over . To prevent this , I take a good sized stick or pole , three or four feet long , and sharpen one end of it . I go around the stack , and at points where the stock is not eating I push the stick to with a downward slant then throw ln a handful of dry salt This done at all the points where the stock Is not eating causes them to work in after the salt and in this way they get to eating all around the stack , and it is not so likely to be thrown over &amp; B .

C Notes From Jasper County . j-. o wa-uJts-ata * Taaxxat A few -weeks sin-cc I tv-na -called oTrt of the barn to look at the beautiful sunset . And • beautiful It -was ; like a glimpse Into the glories of the eternal city and -earnest of the &amp; agnifls - * en » ee laid up * or the faithful . A -true portrayal of this scene -would make the artist famous . Then how easy to be famous ! There is the model spread out before you . All there is to do is to follow copy . Nothing has to be added . If art equals nature in its beauty , it is sufficient . But -who can imitate those colors ! It never has been done , nor will it be . The next -week I read -what our Editor had to say about writing of farm life for publication . It sounded all very nice and easy . Ail we have to &lt; io is to be faithful to copy and simply give a true picture of farm life . Then I thought of that sunset , and said , -who is sufficient unto these things ?

Treatment of Blue Crass Pas -tures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Treatment of Blue Crass Pastures . To WALLACX * * VAanmaM Speaking of sod bound pastures , I recall your attention to the fact that in Kentucky and Missouri plenty of pastures of blue grass and white clover • can -be found twenty-five years old . Afll -i-hey ever need to keep them at their best is to put on sufficient stock once in two or three years to eat them very close . This close grazing improves them very greatly for the years to come . The close grazing destroys the weeds and other plants not needed . Light pasturing of blue grass for several years will make it weedy and a poor stand . There is no need of a harrow or disc . We must bave more bine grass pasture to make the most of the farm , but it takes three years or more to get a good stand established , and when you get a fair stand never plow it np . No part of the farm is so much needed . It is with you early and late ; feed on the blue grass In Octdber , November , and December . The droppings of the . stock makes it b...
Putting Up Ice . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Putting Up Ice . TO WATXIi-ratT-R UDOM This is a suitable time to think of the hot stays coming next summer , and prepare to keep cool iby putting up ice . The men are after the last two loads to fill our house now , which holds 21 ¦ loads of about 30-hnndred each , or about 36 tons . This seems like a large amount for one family ; but it is so hard to do without when , -the hot weather continues into October , and as the only cost -after the ice house , is the expense of putting in a toad or two extra , we find It a great deal more comfortable to be a little long on ice than short Then if you happen to have a Uttle over it can be thrown out The first Ice house we butt * was of pine lumber . It lasted about five years . I concluded I could not build one that often , so I bought white oak dimension stuff and white oak 2 x 4 for inside &lt;* ross ties . Boarding up the inside with oak lumber , and letting the lumber run np and down in order to drain the water away from the fra...
Sod-Jsound Pastures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Sod-Jsound Pastures . Co WnTiim-nr Taaaamt , As regards disking , or scarifying sod-bound blue grass pastures , I will give my experience , which simply illustrates the fact that we cant lay down hard and fast rules for anything . About three years ago I sowed a piece of corn stalks to oats quite early ln the spring , and noticed a small corner of blue grass sod in tlhe field which seemed to be -sod-bound . To see what the effect wonld be , I told the boys to run over this blue grass with the disk . The disk made but very little impression . We soon had a good deal of rain and growing weather , and a person could see aH summer just how far the disk had done its work ; the blue grass grew up as if it had been manured , or put on new soil . Last spring I tried several acres , giving the piece a thorough disking , but not with aa satisfactory results . I dont think the disking did any damage , but I could not see so much benefit as in the first case . The only explantation I can see is...
