Stories for Young Folks . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
Stories for Young Folks . THE FATE OF SIB BANTA _ M . ( A True Story . ) By M . Leila Dawson . Marion Sperry sat in her little low rocker with her dimpled chin supported by both little hands and a very serious look in her usually merry brown eyes . Suddenly she started up , exclaiming : Why , theres my little bantam ! Where ? cried mother , rising involuntarily from her chair . I dont mean here , in this room , laughed Marion ; I was only thinking . You know that to-morrow is fathers birthday , and I havent even a penny in my bank , for I shook it eprer so hard and there wasnt so much as a jingle , so I thought of my bantam that Uncle Jack gave me . He said that it was my very , very own , to do with what I pleased . And are you going to give the bantam to father ? Oh , no , laughed Marion ; but its all a secret ; you wait and be surprised , too , and Marion danced from the room . After putting on her hat and coat she ran to the grocery store near by . Please may I see Mr . Clark ? ...

TWO KITTIES By Mrs . Alia Hoyt Brown . In an old wicker basket in the woodliouse lived a black kitten whose mamma was a sedate old cat that hunted mice in the barn and cellar . * In tho large house in the front of the woodhouse lived a little golden-haired girl of four summers . Her mamma was a kind and gentle lady . This little girls name was Kitty . Both mothers loved their Kitties dearly , and the two Kitties were the best of friends .

-A WARM POULTRY HOUSE . By H . B . Hay dock . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
-A WARM POULTRY HOUSE . By H . B . Hay dock . Among my poultry houses I have found the one shown in illustration to be the warmest in winter and also cool in summer . It is built on the plan of an enlarged tent coop , with large windows and a ventilator in front . Back of these windows are crossbars of iron and wire netting , and also a curtain to let down on very cold nights . The door by which one enters is in the rear . The house is six feet high , eight feet long by eight feet wide . It is easily constructed , for after back and front are made , the . roof answers the pur A Warm Poultry HouSe . Photo by :. pose . of-the sides , with the excieptio n of two large base boards .,, Tlie -house is roofed with tarred paper . Owing to the steep pitch of roof , the snow slides readily from it and does not remain to melt gradually , as on some poiijtry houses . This house will accomodate fifteen Brahmas nicely and more of the smaller breeds . The roosts and dropping board are placed on on...
THE FEEDING OF FOWLS [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
THE FEEDING OF FOWLS By A . V . Meersch . The poultry that appear in such vast numbers in the markets throughput the country during the Thanskgiving and Christmas weeks have , if fine , undergone some few weeks of careful preparation in order to be in the best of condition for the occasion . iThe fattening of birds and other live stoiJk has been practised for many centuries . The Egyptians fattened geese 4 , 000 years ago , using balls of paste , which were forced down the throats of the birds . The Bomans are recorded to have fattened cockerels about 160 B . C . In Mascall s Husbandie , Ordering of Poul . trie , dated 1581 , he states that to fatten fowls the meal shall be barley meal made into paste with water , and fashioned into pellets longwaies , and so to make i them to swallow them , and if ye will have them fat , and tender withal , you must kneade your barley meal with water and honey , he adds , quoting his own words .
POULTRY -TOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
POULTRY -TOTES Eggs may be flavored by the feed given to the hens . Breed has nothing to with the flavor of an egg . Good flavors are produced by keeping hens in clean quarters and giving them good feed . Eggs having a good flavor may be kept good by storing them in a eool place ,, where the air is fresh and clean . j frgg Bhelta are porons ^ nd ^ wiffa-sorb bad odors , not as readily as milk or butter , but very much on the same order . A few guinea fowls on the farm are worth something to keep hawke away , and they are still more valuable as bug eaters in the ) garden . They dont scratch like Other fowls , and for this reason they may be permitted to forage , among delicate plants . Consul General William H . Michael , of Calcutta ,: is , ganguin . e , of- great success in ostrich farm . ing in certain parts of the ¦ United States . Its development in India is also promising . If found sufficiently profitable it will no doubt extend largely in this country .
HAVE YOU A GRANGE IN YOUR VICINITY ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
HAVE YOU A GRANGE IN YOUR VICINITY ? The Grange is beneficial socially and in a business way . Farmers live too much to themselves . . We may be very intelligent and very wise , but the best of us dont know it all . Our good points are brought out by getting in contact with others . Join the Grange . ; Dont try to run it according to your way of thinking at all times , but join with the purpose of helping , that is the way to secure benefits for yourself and help to benefit others . The selfish members receive benefits all right enough , but they dont have the same satisfaction . To really enjoy the Grange we must mix in with the others . Do your share of the work and do it agreeably and pleasantly . The Grange has a big work to do and it needs the help of every live farmer . If you have no Grange in your community start one . Do it at once and help to make it just as prosperous as possible during the winter .
OARR'S TRADE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
OARRS TRADE LETTER ( Weekly review of grain trade conditions which are shaping prices , prepared expressly for Farm Press , by the Farmer Commission House of H . H . Carr &amp; Company , 96 Board of Trade , Chicago . ) We believe the next few days will clear up the situation in the Northwest so that the wheat trade and the country may know whether the very light movement to market is the result of cat shortage , as some claim , or . a disposition on the part of farmers to store their gruin and hold for better prices . For this week carlots arriving at Winnipeg , Minneapolis and Duluth have been but little move than half for same day last year . Wheat receipts at all western ii : arkets show 3 , 000 , 000 bushels smaller than the same week last year . Dispatches say that country mills took most of the wheat delivered on contracts at Minneapolis for the closing days of the month . Stocks at that point we re 12 , 000 , 000 bushels before harvest and tliey are now down to less t...

FEEDING MULES / [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
FEEDING MULES / _ _ ,.- fBy J . L . Graef . - / The canning plants of Illinois and ( Wisconsin have been giving a deal of time and thought to the matter of saving waste products of their factories . The men who can peas have found a • way to put to good - use the pods and vines . They silo them and feed them to jsheep . •« ,. ¦ , p The Illinois corn men have hit on a no / less successful plan of feeding the chucks and rejected ears of sweet corn to Missouri mules . They dont ship the feed to the domain of the mule , but they bring the critter to the cannery by the train load and fill his hide until he is the slickest , fattest useful creature gome of the Mules .

QUE INCREASING - "OPTJliATION . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
QUE INCREASING - OPTJliATION . The address delivered by James J . Hill at the dedication of the Live Stock Pavilion at the Minnesota State Fail , has attracted a great deal of attention . Mr . Hill is an extraordinary man . He is an empire builder and has done more for the Northewest than any other one man . We give the part of his address which applies especially to our increasing population in the following words : It is fair to reckon the increase by the excess of birth over deaths at fifteen per cent on the average for each decade . The additions by immigration are more variable . It is highly probable , however , that the oncoming tide will increase . Only in periods of severe depression has immigration fallen below the half million mark for the last twenty-five years . In good or fairly good times it has gone greatly above . In the two years before 1905 it exceeded 800 , 000 annually , while for each of the last two years it has exceeded one million . It is a conservative esti...
A MODERN PLOWING MATCH . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 October 1906
A MODERN PLOWING MATCH . Plowing matches are not common jn the United States , but we hear of theni occasionally . Eecently at Big Rock , 111 ., the annual plowing match took place , but it was not very much like the old-fashioned plowing match that some of us remember thirty or forty years ago . In this case there was only one walking plow on the ground . / Reports state this one did good work , but it must have looked lonesome . The big prizes were won with three-horse and four-horse teams on gang plows , which shows the manner in which machinery is changing the work of the farm . A potato famine impends over a large part of the west of Ireland . In the counties Mayo , Galway , Sligo , Roscommon , and Clare blight has invaded the fields , and in the two former counties the crop is already pronounced a total failure . Of the 600 , 000 acres planted to potatoes in Ireland about one-fifth is . in the five affected counties . The disease has also made its appearance on the other side ...
