A Fearful Experience . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
A Fearful Experience . A Postmaster Looses The Use of His Legs And Anns . Edwin R . Tripp , of Mddlef ield Center , Meets With a Hazerdous Encounter Which Renders Him Helpless . From Otsego Bepublican , Cooperstoum , N . Y . Mr . Edwin B , Tripp , the postmaster at Midd efleld Center . N . 1 ., recently had a dangerons experience which left him in a helpless state . His system was so much shattered that it was feared he might never recover . In an interview with a reporter of the Republican , regarding this experience which had attracted considerable attentlon . Mr . Tripp stated : In March , 189 i , I was taken with what I afterward learned was locomotor ataxia , and was unable to walk , and I kept getting worse until I lost the use ot my arms . I doctored with two skillful doctors , but received no benefit ; and also used a galvanic battery , but kept getting worse , and the doctors told me they could do no more . This was in May and June , 1892 . I gave up all hope ol ever having...

Our Club Raisers . ciuu The competition among our raisers for the four special premiums offered for the largest lists received on or before Feb . 1 , 1898 , closed on that date with the following results : The J 25 . 00 Feed Grinder was won by Mr .

Exports For 1897 . The exports of wheat during the calendar year of 1897 were 109 , 909 , 328 bushels ; a gain of 26 , 000 , 000 over 1896 , and 43 , 000 , 000 over 1895 . The exports of flour , however , fell off 2 , 000 , 000 barrels as compared with 1896 .

In other words , the exported corn during the year has been a little over 10 per cent of the crop of 1897 , and about 9 per cent of the crop of 1896 . As a rule , we export about i per cent of our corn crop .
The Henry George Side of Rent . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
The Henry George Side of Rent . T « WALLACES _ AJ _____ S - In your issue of January 28 th , I notice an article by Cyril Carpenter , of Louisa county , Iowa , headed A Righteous Rent . I wish to say that I do not believe there is a righteous rent for land unless It would be in the form of the government getting that rent to pay its expenses . If Congress was equal to the occasion , it could raise all revenues from land values irrespective of improvements in any shape or form . Mr . Carpenter is righteous in drawing rent on his improvements , but when It comes to naked land he surely has no claim to righteous rent . Perhaps some will say that Mr . Carpenter furnished the land . Pray tell me , did not God furnish the land , and did he not furnish land for all his people , or , in other words , for all the children of men ? If he did not furnish land for his children of the present day , what did he furnish them unless it is a master in the form of a landlord ? We have abolished chatt...

[ velvet Chaff Blue Stem Wheat . I [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
[ velvet Chaff Blue Stem Wheat . I The native fertility of the Western soil having been in a great measure restored in recent years , by the use of clover as a fertilizer , it bas been found that the yield of wheat per acre is as great as in former years . This fact , taken together with the handsome price to which wheat has advanced , should justify liberal sowing of wheat this season , and what variety conld be recommended that will excell the Velvet Chaff Blue Stem . A thor onghly aclimated sort , yielding large crops of first-class grain . It is a beardless spring variety and hardly ever affected by rust . The Livingston Seed Store , of Des Moines , has a good stock of this variety . See their advertisement on page 6 . A great many readers of WAL- __ ACKS FABMBB have grown this wheat during the past two years , and it seems to have given excellent satisfaction wherever spring wheat oil any kind does well . A number of communications have appeared in the paper during the past eig...

Profit in Sheep . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
Profit in Sheep . Mr . L . S . Cotton , of Cass county , Iowa , in writing to us incidentally gives the following statement of his succes witsh lambs last year . They were dropped in March , weaned August 15 th , and turned into the corn field with salt and water accessible . They were sold October 20 th at ? 4 . 00 per head , averaging 91 pounds . This shows what can be done with a small flock . The lambs were sold too cheap , and had there been a carload would have brought ? 5 . 00 per head instead of but ¥ 4 . 00 .
Feeding Cattle in Nebraska . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
Feeding Cattle in Nebraska . If our readers could travel the legnth of the Platte Valley they wouldbe surprised at the hundreds of thousands of cattle that are there on feed , thus making a home market for corn equal and superior to that enjoyed by Iowa farmers . It is not difficult to see why this is so . Nebraska farmers enjoy feeding-in-transit rates . They ship their cattle from the ranges to Chicago and load them up with corn . Peedlng-in-transit rates would very materially advance the price of corn in Iowa and would benefit every man , woman -and child living in the state , and yet when we proposed this a year ago and urged the railroads to adopt it , it was vigorously opposed by a socalled agricultural paper . It is these flre-ln-the-rear fellows that have been among the greatest obstacles to agricultural advancement and the promotion of the general welfare .
The Effects of Renting Land . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
The Effects of Renting Land . ro tv _______ . ___ jr __ B ____ as I will put Edna Township , Cass county , against any township in the state for renting land . On one road running eight miles south from Cumberland to Briscoe , there are thirty farms lying directly on the road and only nine of them are farmed by the owners , the rest being rented . If these farms were rented for grain rent it would be better for both parties , provided the landlord did not want it all . Landlords should give better terms to the tenants to encourage them to put something back on the farm and keep the land from running down . I can count fifty farms in this county that are rented for from $ 2 . 00 to $ 3 . 25 per acre , cash , and some of these farms in a few years will be too poor to grow cockleburs . The land has been skinned and skinned , and so have the tenants . Some of these have had to go into bankruptcy , sell their teams and stock , and work out by the month to pay their arrears of rent . Besi...
Supplementing the Corn Ration [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 February 1898
Supplementing the Corn Ration A Reader at GrlgBSVllle . Ill . [ . ends Ihe foi lowing : I am feeding 230 spring calves snapped com and crushed cob and corn worth twentv cer ts . What prices can I afford to pay for oats anal bran and ln what proportion should they be fed . At the low price named for a-orn , « o far as mere nutriment is concerned , your correspondent cannot afford to pay more than $ 6 or ? 7 per ton for bran . It will not do , howe \ er , to attempt to grow and fatten these calves on corn alone , and so some complementary food must be fed . even though It costs much more for nutriment than does corn . I should feed to each calf two or three pounds of bran per day . even though It costs $ 12 or $ 14 . Bran ls a better concentrate to go with corn than oats and will cost less . If oil-meal ls not over $ 20 per ton add a pound or substitute It for that much bran ln the ration . —Prof . W . A . Henry In Breeders Gazette . MAP PUZZLE EDUCATOR . Is Iowa as large as Maine ? W...
