— Osage Hedge . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 February 1898
— Osage Hedge . TO w ____ c ___ s naanat There is quite a good deal of hedge fence In Warren county , the most of which is kept tn reasonably good trim ; but here , there and over yonder there are farms where they are allowed to grow up at random , perhaps about fifteen or twenty feet in height and about the same In width , -with a tangled thorny mass usually interspersed with wild grape vines , sumach , hazel brush , weeds and a few strands of barbed wire to patch tip the holes . Shame on the man wbo owns such a fence , especially If It be the line fence between him and some well-to-do neighbor who desires to use all the land he owns , but falls short of it by a strip alongside the noxious hedge about fifteen yards wide , thus allowing his negligence to be a detriment to his neighbor as well as to himself . Oaf course , we would not have the readers of Wallaces Farmer suppose for a moment that such a man does . In any sense , repre sent the general farming class of this or any othe...

To w __ i ___ - * FU-oni Insurance was unknown In ancient times . Its origin was established by the exigencies of Aodern commerce . It was looked upon as a novelty even fin the days of Queen Elizabeth . Its birthplace and early history -was Southern Europe . It was first applied to mercantile adventures and principally marine commerce . There were few men In those days in possession ot much wealth .

A Disc Sharpener . It the publishers of Wallaces Farmer could turn Into cash the time and power lost every spring through dull-edged farming implements they could afford to make the paper twice as large and charge half the present price for it . The amount of money lost in the way Indicated foots up to an enormous sum yearly . and most of this money Is lost simply through carelessness . There Is hardly a reader of the Farmer who does not appreciate the Importance of sharp tools and Implements , but the job of sharpening them Is put off from time to time until spring work opens with a rush and there is no longer leisure to attend to the matter as It should be . For this reason we call attention now to the disc harrow sharpener Illustrated herewith , and made by the Wilson Iron Works , 171 B Randolph , Chicago , III . It Is of the utmost Importance that the disc harrow be sharp , and , as this ingenious little machine makes It possible to do a good job of sharpening on the farm Instea...

We bave now reached a period in Iowa and the adjoining states in which a man , if he means business , can select fruit trees with reasonable assurance of eating satisfactory fruit of bis own planting . Until within comparatively recent years orcharding in Iowa has been largely experimental . It has taken many years and the comBined efforts of some of the most Intelligent men in the state to ascertain what varieties of trees are adapted to particular soils , locations on the farm , latitude and degrees of longitude In the state . There have been many fail-, ures and some brilliant successes , and the farmer , If he is wise , can learn as much from the failures of some as the succe-ses of others . No properly conducted experiment Is a failure In the best sense of the word . It Is either a note of encouragement or a warning ,...
