The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

The Week January s meteorological record shows the month to have been the warmest for that period of the year since 1871 . There was an excess of temperature during the month of 175 degrees , or an average of almost ly degrees daily above normal . But as if to make up for lost time , the last day of January inaugurated a storm which swept with great fury across the country , accompanied by intense cold . In the West there was much suffering , but along the Atlantic seaboard the loss of life and property was the greatest in many years . The Massachusetts coast is strewn with the wrecks of ships driven on the rocks by the relentless winds , and many Gloucester fishermen made their last cruise in the fatal storm . The loss to shipping as already reported foots up many hundreds of thousands . In New York and Boston business was brought almost to a standstill , and from all over New England come reports of heavy losses caused by the storm . For twenty-four hours Boston was cut off from c...

Look Out for 'Em [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Look Out for Em A letter just received from the Ohio experiment station says that a man calling himself Oliver Hawn is traveling through the country selling a material for spraying fruits , food for poultry and stuff for killing lice , claiming that he was at one time connected with the station , and that his materials have the sanction of the station officials . Another man calling himself Essig is selling a remedy for pear blight , making similar claims for it , and showing letters on the station letterheads as proof of his reliability . Both these men are frauds , and ; as a rule all others claiming to sell mixtures of a secret composition on recommendations from experiment stations may be set down as swindlers . The experiment stations do not have anything to do with secrets of this kind . What they discover they tell freely to every one who will take the trouble to read their bulletins . If they do not know the composition of a preparation they tell where it can be bought and a...

The Business of Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

The Business of Agriculture In one of the manufacturing centers of Michigan is a furniture factory , which , while others all about it have closed down , gone into bankruptcy , or assessed stockholders to sustain existence , has managed to pay dividends through the long period of depression , and now , with the first blush of returning business activity is prepared to enter upon a career of prosperity . The reason this establishment has thus succeeded where others failed is a simple one—the manager knows his business . He knows how to select the timber , and what it is worth , and how it will best make up . He knows the machinery , and just what his men who operate it should accomplish in a day . He knows the markets , what is demanded by the trade , and what the prevailing prices will yield in the way of profit . He keeps posted on the standing of customers and is careful to avoid the creation of bad accounts . The complex interests of agriculture to-day call for this all-around ab...

Pingree an Issue [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Pingree an Issue Governor Pingree s Buffalo address , in which lie charged that all the trusts and combines had taken refuge within the Republican party , has resulted in his repudiation by the Michigan members of congress , and has precipitated a fight in the Wolverine state of more than passing interest . It came very easy for the politicians to repudiate the governor ; easier , perhaps , than it will be to defeat him should he seek renomination at the hands of the party ; much easier than to defeat him at the polls should he run either as a Republican or an independent . Governor Pingree lacks much of being the ideal statesman ; he is suspected of having a great deal of practical political shrewdness , and a strong regard for the interests of No . 1 . But Lincoln was a shrewd politician whom the contingencies of a great crisis in our national history developed into a statesman of lofty purpose and large calibre . We do not compare Pingree to Lincoln ; we doubt if the former posse...

Tricks of the Trade [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Tricks of the Trade There are tricks in all trades but ours , is the old joke . When , therefore , we succeed in getting the other fellows to tell us how this tricks in their trades are worked we are just so much ahead . In this week s issue of the Elgin Dairy Report appears a letter from a New York commission firm , explaining the operation of the one-half ^ cent-above offer made by certain firms who thus seek to secure the trade of the butter producers . As the same trick is worked by commission merchants in all lines of trade , the letter has a general application . Replying to the editor s query : Why is it that this custom of guaranteeing to ( return over market price for butter causes such sudden and arbitrary breaks in the market ? the commission firm referred to replies in part as follows : It is very simple . The cause lies not so muchin the habit of returning a premium over quotations ; although that tends to make a fictitious market ; in itself ; but mainly in ? the habit...

Why People Starve [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Why People Starve A Kansas friend clips the editorial which appeared in these columns January 22 on Famine s Real Basis , and sends it to us with the following notation : In his reports to the Cosmopolitan on the Indian famine , a few months ago , Julian Hawthorne said there was an abundance of wheat in India , especially urged sending money , not wheat ; sending wheat , he said , would simply result in demoralizing the market . We are too often led into error by remarking only the superficial evidences relating to the matters in question . When we look deeper we usually find , in such cases as the Indian famine , that the suffering of the people comes from social inequalities , not from the failures of providence ; from causes , in other words , which lie within the power of man to correct . It is a dreadful fact to contemplate that millions of Indias people , under the enlightened rule of Christian (?) Great Britain , and with the full knowledge of Christian (?) America , suffered...

aMMMMM & MMM i > § $ Men for the Times § AlK / JAft [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

aMMMMM & MMM i > § $ Men for the Times § AlK / JAft w w 5 K By Alden S . Hullng M R ECENT reading of the opening chapters of a new history of the Revolutionary War has awakened in my mind fresh impressions of the character of the men who first actually fronted in battle array the representatives of British power . While I have spent my entire life in towns , there is but one generation between me and direct contact with the soil ; my grandfather followed the plow and swung the scythe , and I will not be denied a thrill of pride that these men were farmers . I mean no reflection on any others , for it is beyond question that the genuine spirit of liberty was felt in that day among all classes . Still I glory in the fact that the first opportunity to prove devotion to the cause by throwing life and all into the scale was given to farmers . Yet how much was lacking in the life of those farmers of what goes to make up the life of all classes to-day ! No telegraph ...

Agriculture ) . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Agriculture ) . Must Be Born Again Farmers do not generally evince the quick perception that takes advantage of all opportunities as they pass , many of which will make them and the county yet more fruitful and prosperous . We find a farmer now and then who is eager to get at new facts and better methods , but generally farmers have set themselves against innovations and changes , unless they can see some other fellow first thoroughly test and prove these new methods . ¦ You can find a few centers here and there where farmers are freeing themselves from bondage , but generally there is much that is yet dense ignorance , or worse—a determined resistance to the facts of science . Here are some of these unheeded facts : The average amount of digestible dry matter we get from an acre of timothy is not more than 2 , 000 pounds , while from corn grown for fodder the pounds of dry digestible matter will reach 8 , 000 pounds , and the corn crop is easier on the land than the timothy crop . ...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 5 February 1898

Garden and Orchard pansies and Pansy Seeds The following valuable paper was read at the recent meeting of the Horticultural Society of Northern Illinois , by William Toole , the well-known expert on pansies , of Baraboo , Wis .: It is not the object of this paper to encourage anyone to undertake the raising , of pansy seed for profit , as experience has not favored any such thought . It shall be our aim , however , to consider points of interest to those who wish to hold to a standard of quality , existing varieties , to improve the same , or to establish new varieties . Young plants seed most freely , giving the best flowers , and , consequently , the best seed , so we may better depend upon early plants started in the greenhouse , or wintered under frames or other protection , or those from later spring sown seeds which commence blooming by mid-summer and have been strengthened by having the blossoms picked off until late In August , yielding seeds from then to the close of the se...
