Care of the Brood Mare , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
Care of the Brood Mare , To W __ , l . _ n _ . _______ The drood mare should be given especial attention at this time of year if she is carrying a foal , for her treataent the next eight months ( if she is due to foal iu the spring ) will enter largely into shaping the future of the colt , whether it starts out a wellmuscled , shapely and ambitious fellow or whether he has a forlorn look and tired actions , seemingly to have been ushered Into this cold and unfriendly world at a . time wlien colts were little thought of . The mare should be stabled every night ( and every horse on the farm for tha . matter ) . Give them plenty of bedding to induce them to He down a good deal to take the undue weight off their joints . Clover hay and oats are her best rations . Feed her enough to have her fat . The fat mare will not drop so large a foal as the thin mare , which will be easier and better for both of them , though that has nothing to do with the size of the matured horse . If the mare i...
Sugar Beet Experience . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
Sugar Beet Experience . Co WALLACES Fimmi I raised a few sugar beets this season , and will send you a copy of the analysis made by Prof . Weems at Ames . I think It is good , and it is as follows :, No . of Beets , 2 . Average weight trimmed 13 % oz . Crude sugar in juice , 23 . 29 per cent Pure sugar in juice , 19 . 06 per cent Substance not sugar ln juice , 4 . 23 per cent Purity , 81 . 83 per cent . Sugar in Beets , 18 . 11 per cent The piece of land on which they were planted had been under cultivation for thirty-five or forty years ; had no manure for three years , was fall plowed about eight inches , but not subsoiled ; the beets were small and yielded about 15 tons per acre , were cultivated about once a week for four or Ave weeks , at which time the leaves completely covered the ground . They were completely stripped of their leaves at one time by long striped bugs ; they grow out again but not so large as before . I think beet raising would be a great thing for farmers if ...
Preservation of Potatoes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
Preservation of Potatoes . CO WALUOM * FAB-CD ! - One of the principal reasons why potatoes can not be kept in storage for any greater length of time is that under proper conditions germination occurs and causes certain chemical changes in the tuber . This may be prevented , potatoes kept fresh and sound for a period of eighteen months or longer , by the following means : Two parts ( pounds ) of sulphuric acid are mixed with ( dissolved in ) 100 parts ( pounds ) of water . The acid is added to the water slowly and under constant stirring . In this solution the potatoes are left for 10 hours . The acid kills the sprouts by penetrating into the seed holes . Having been taken out of the solution the potatoes are cleaned off in fresh water and allowed to dry . Afterwards , no germination can take place , and the condition of the tubers remains unaltered . Seed potatoes should , of course , not be treated in this way , as it is of importance to retain their germinating faculty . It shoul...

The Credit System . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
The Credit System . _ o WALLAOXS TXRM * ax _ It miglit be profitable once more to raise tbe onestion at a season ot the vear v _ a _ a we have , time to discuss it , whether the farmers are any better off with the credit system in dealing with the country merchant . The merchants argument is this : The time customer buys the most goods , and the inference is that he , the merchant , makes a greater profit from the time customer . Let us follow it through . The merchant opens business in a general store , sells at one price , whether on cash or credit ; time passes on , many accounts are becoming large , and the merchant gives them an invitation to pay at lease something . Take a cigar , and , by the way , let me give you some candy for the children , and iet us look over the account and see how it stands . Even through the odor of a fragrant Havana , costing ten cents , the count does not always look right It is usually larger than expected , and the examination closes up something ...
The Care of Stable Manure . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
The Care of Stable Manure . To W _ T , T . _«__ - !!__________ Wherever and whenever only a certain part of nature s resources has been put to practical use , much is wasted . If such is the case in cities and towns , where even entire factories and industries are based upon waste in one shape or another , it is not rare in the country , among the farming papulation . What we are especially thinking of , in this connection , Is the careless manner in which many farmers are treating one of their principal sources of fertilization , namely stable manure . We hold true that only in extreme cases do farmers need to avail themselves of commercial fertilizers ,, if they exercise due care , in due time , and manage to preserve the large amounts of plant nutrition stored in the manure pile . We consider the latter a capital which should be guarded well , and placed on interest in the safest of all banks , the soil . The most important manure consists of the solid and fluid dung from the bar...
The Screw Worm . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
The Screw Worm . co WA ____ -C __ S - FABiara : Noting the inquiry of J . G . Guengerieh last week , will say while in Texas last month , in conversation with a cattleman &gt; he briefly gave me a description of the screw worm and the remedy used effectually by the Texans . The cause and method of operation was stated , about as given by Mr . G . It is very common in Texas , and is one cause of their dehorning cattle , as , If an animal is marked so as to bring blood the screw worm fly will be sure to find the fresh blood and if only a drop , it will deposit the larvae . Hence , branding and dehorning is done in wimtv . r in Texas , at which time the fly is not active . The Texans ride among their cattle daily during the season and when a bunch is seen to appear on an animal from the size of an egg up , the animal is immediately caught and thrown , and a little chloroform is injected into the bunch by a small , sharp syringe . My Informant said the remedy is unfailing . D . ...
[ Nitragine [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 21 January 1898
[ Nitragine Nitragine , th ? new bacteria-fertil-izer for sandy soils or other fields poor in nitrogen , has been practically tried in several Instances , and two of the already published reports read as follows : 1 The experimental crop was the kidney bean . The Inoculated ptets produced the most fodder while those not treated yielded a little the most grain . On one plat the crop was grown two years in succession without apparent gain the second year , but . when two crops were grown In succession the same year the second crop seemed to be benefited by the inoculation of the soil caused by the first crop . 2 . The application of nitragine was without effect where the soil was in condition lo produce a normal crop . Inoculations on light sandy soils Increased the crop of beans 124 per cent and that of peas 46 per cent over untreated plats .
