Differences in Cows andCowOwners [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Differences in Cows andCowOwners By D . H . Otis . DURING the summer of 1898 the Kansas ¦ Agricultural College Dairy made an investigation of the patrons of the Meriden Creamery to ascertain the income they were realizing 1 per cow for milk sold to the creamery . The poorest herd averaged , per cow , $ 7 . 54 annually ! and . the best one $ 42 . 09 , making a difference of $ 34 . 55 per cow ; Taking the poorest five herds the average cow is 9 . 44 and for the best five $ 33 . 74 , a difference of $ 24 . 30 or 257 per cent . Where recordshave been kept it has been found that it takes from . $ 20 to $ 30 to pay for ; keeping a cow . ; It will thus be seen that as far as milk is concerned the cows from : the poorest ; herds are running their owners in debt , ; the : only redeeming feature being the value of the calf produced ; These figures illustrate very clearly the need and likewise the possibility of materially increasing the income from the dairy cow .

GUMAER , superintendent of an . extensive ranch property in Kearny county , Kansas , on which hogs are reared in large numbers , writes his experiences and observations as to alfalfa for swine food , to Secretary Coburn of the Kansas State Board pf Agriculture , as follows : We began raising hogs in the fall of 1 S 93 . since which time he have had on hand 500 to 1 , 000 head . They have always been raised on alfalfa pasture and alfalfa hay in winter , together with sorghum—this ration supplemented with a little corn or other grain . We breed our sows to have pigs in February , March , and tlie first half of April , so far as we can ; then &gt; vhen the alfalfa is high enough for pasture the pigs will do to turn out . Pigs of this age are much sought after by eastern Kansas feeders in the fall , when from four to eight months old . . . » * * TO get the -best results from alfalfa pasture here in the Arkansas valley , it should be .

Care of Bees in Winter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Care of Bees in Winter By A . H . Duff . B EES need but little attention in winter if they have been put in proper condition in autumn and before winter is on . Bees must . be kept very quiet during winter , or rather during cold weather , and at all times that they are thus confined in the hives . Hives may be opened and examined on fine days when the bees are flying thickly , but this should not be done only in cases of absolute necessity . Every colony of bees should be . supplied with plenty of stores in autumn to last them all winter , for it is impossible to feed bees liquid food in winter , and we can onlv substitute candy instead , a * * A COLONY of bees found shortof food in winter may be carried over until warm weather with candy . This may be prepared by using the best grades of granulated sugar , and made into- solid bricks of candy by adding a very little water and boiling the same . These bricks of candy may be moulded right into a frame from the hives and Imng into th...

Some Questions for Answers [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Some Questions for Answers TO the Editop : I wish to submit a few questions : to your readers which 1 think will interest at least those of theni . in , tlie South : Why are we farmers in the bog ? Whose fault is it . that we are depressed ? We have a prosperous county , mild climate and a fertile soil © reducing crops of almost every kind ? 1 think the trouble lies right here . We go to the merchant for meat and lard and pay him fen cents a pound for them when we can raise them for five cents per pound . • -.-.. Why do we pay the merchant fifty cents for a gallon , of molasses when we can raise it for fifty or twenty ? Why let . our soils run down for want of fertilizer when there is tons of it wasting around us ? Why pay a dollar a hundred for it when it would cost nothing ? Why sell our cotton seed for five dollars a ton when they are . worth twenty to our lands ? . :. • • I think if these questions are rightly answered we will have a lesson worth learning . C . N .

TIMELY TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
TIMELY TOPICS The Trend of ; Prices ; ^ AS a general principle it may be stated that the bank clearances are a pretty true index to . the trend of business and the degree of prosperity enjoyed by any city or country . For the week ending Nov . 23 the total bank clearings for the United States were $ 1 , 331 , 884 , 749 as against $ 1 , 727 , 271 , 033 for the week ending Nov ; 17 showing a decrease of $ 395 , 420 , 284 . Reference to our index table will show thai the index number for . last week was 7 . 427 as against 7 . 4 . S 1 tlie previous week , a decrease of . 054 ; the principal loss is in the price of cattle and hogs as there was ageneral advance in prices of cereals . . One of the most important financial incidents during the week was the announcement bythe Imperial Bank of Germauythat it had raised its minimum disc oant • nite from five and a half to six per cent . This action of the principal bank , of Germany , it would appear , was designed : to elwck the flow of gold ...

C better known as . the Sunny , South Colony , and I must confess that the place Is better by far than advertised . Ihave crossed the Atlantic ocean ten times for the purpose of breathing the , air of old England ; now I have found a climate equal to-itin the United States . Lung troubles and . catarrh do not exist in the , Sunny South Colony . For me the climate is . perfection . ; Chadbourn Is only 080 miles , from New York and 300 miles from Washington , D .

Christianity and Civilization ^ [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Christianity and Civilization ^ P ROF . HERRON , Towa College , Grinnell , Iowa , is throwing some hot shot into the ranks of those who are opposed to the advance of civilization • n a course of Monday lectures at Willard Hall . Chicago . The . fifth in the course . The Conflict of Christ with Civilization , November 21 . was in part as follows : It is absurd to suppose that Jesus was put to death for going about healing sick people and appealing to individuals to be saved . or to be good as we understand these terms . He was crucified for disturbing the existing national order of things : crucified as a national menace , because He was aiming at the wrong at the heart of the . nation . His avowed purpose was to make the Jewish people a Messianic and redemptive nation to the world . When He was rejected it was a governmental as well as ecclesiastical rejection . His death was brought about by the politicians , who were also the priests , or belonged to the priestly party . The chief...
Will Tend to Commercial Equality [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Will Tend to Commercial Equality MR . JOHN A . GRIER is a writer on coinage of a national reputation . He has done as much clear thinking and cogent reasoning on this subject as any man we know . In his , article last week entitled Hints on the Study of the Silver Question one line was accidentally omitted in the linotype which tended to confuse his otherwise lucid utterance . We therefore repeat the paragraph and make the correction . The line omitted was gold bullion down and raise the exchangeable value of silver bullion . We quote a full paragraph to make the meaning clear : We contend that a fair treatment of silver will again tend to bring about tbe old commercial eouality . of about 16 to 1 . between the T bullion value of our silver dollar and pur gold dollar . We contend that since June 22 . 1874 . we have coined no dollars covered by that comprehensive clause of our law in 1792 that declares these dollars shall be a lawful tender in all • payments whatsoever . This clause ...
