The Texas Screw Worm . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
The Texas Screw Worm . •• jo waixaa-n * taxaxal I want to drop and inguiry into the letter box . While traveling in Missouri last fall I heard a great deal abont what they called the Texas screw worm , -which seems to bury Itself In the flesh of any animal , not ln a sore like maggots , but into any fresh cut or -wound . It soon , causes a troublesome sore , always going deeper to find fresh blood . People there . say they were brought into Missouri with some Texas sheep . The larvae is said to be laid by a fly not differing much in appearance from the conmton house fly . If the editor , or any of the • readers of Wallaces Farmer , can throw light on * his subject I wish , Khey wouM do so . T . CI . GTJENGEBICTH . Johnson County , Iowa .

The Beef Steer . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
The Beef Steer . During tbe past two or three years we bave bad sjecai-fion to refer more than once in sximpllmeotary terms to . the excellent work that bas been done by Secretary Oobum , of tbe Kansas State Board of Agriculture . The information co 9 feoted by Mr .

Information . Wanted on Grasses . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Information . Wanted on Grasses . Mr . J . £ 7 . Harafolw-i-ger , of Harrison comnty , Iowa , writes : What kind of grass will do best on hazel brush land , that as been farmed three years in cs - trn ? What fe your advice regarding BngHsb blue grass as an all-around pasture for ihorses , cattle , and bogs ? How much to the acre should be sown and bow- deep snonM it be covered ? - , We do not know of any grass better adapted to ihnzel brush land than clover and timothy . In that section we -would sow about eight pounds of clover and from eight to ten pounds of timothy to the acre and cover as we do oats . We have not bad sufiloient experi ence with Etogliflh blue grass to give any d * eftn 4 te iiiformation . We sowed a small amount some years ago with other grasses , but not enough to justify us In forming an opinion . The botanical matme Is meadow fescue . It seems to be grown , successfully in some parts of Kansas . It was grown in -Madison county , Iowa , fifteen or twenty years...
The Blue Grass Pasture . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
The Blue Grass Pasture . On another page will be found some interesting notes from an old farmer of long experience in handling blue grass and sheep . He states , and lt ts the first time we bave seen it stated in so many words , that blue grass will not do weH unless pastured very close once in two or three years . Some years ago an experienced farmer in Iowa told us tbat it was bis custom to turn * • his stock On to his blue grass pastures s * - * ce _* t * wo ** sto » . ** - spring when the ground was wat for the purpose of ibavlng them poach it or chop it up with their feet The reason be gave was -that blue grass was apt to be sod bound and needed this kind of treatment . There is a point bere worth looking at . Our judgment is in both cases that the grass becomes sod bound , to use the farmer s expression , and lt needs to be cut up in some way . Would it not be the better way to take a disc harrow and cut It up systematically , and , while doing It , would it not be best to gi...

Marshalltown Institute . The farmers of Marshall county closed on last Friday one of the best institutes that we bave ever attended ; the more remarkable , because It is the first institute ever foeM in that county . The subject of good roads was quite fully discussed by a number of the lea-ding farmers In the neighborhood , the special point being whether the present system of supervision should be changed . One township has bad the new system in practice for the past year . Notwithstanding the new method had an able advocate In J . H . Jayne , the sentiment was against any change for the present . The subject of The Dairy was discussed by Dr . E . Lewis , and -in the absence of W . K . IJoard-man , State Dairy CkHnmissioner , by Henry Wai lace .

A RUhteous Rent . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
A RUhteous Rent . to WaxLAc-ts ruaH . I was much interested In the article on A Righteous Rent , as I have bad to deal with farm tenants myself for sevfiral years . * I , for one , firmly ( believe that as a rule the best plan for both- parties is that of a sash rent , at a figure somewhat less than that which would result from giving a share ; my argument being that the landlord should be willlag to take a slightly lower rent , as be would bave -t-onsiderably less trouble than wben taking a share . The tenant also would bave less trouble , would -have a larger return , and would get the benefit of any extra exertion be might put forth in order to secure a better crop , for wbich advantages he should be quite wilrrng to take the risk of an occasional light yield .

Scraps . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 7 January 1898
Scraps . If you would be capable , cultivate your mind ; If you would be loved , cuIUvate your heart . A clean heart will choose clean company and clean ways , and delight in clean subjects and clean employment . Two things we should never be angry at : What we can help and what we can not help . If wrinkles must be written on our brows , let tbem not be written upon our hearts . The spirit should never grow old . The great duty of life Is not to give pain . The devil s trade mark is cruelty ; heavens trade mark Is kindness . We have not lived In vain If we but stop one tear , or heal a wrong , or lift a fainting bird Into IU nest again . Whatsoever a man soweth , that shaU be also reap . Welsh Rarebit : To one quart of warns milk , grate or slice thin one-fourth of a pound of cheese . Let this come to the boll and pour lt over sUced toasted bread . ( This la a good breakfast dish . )
