KANSAS SEMI-CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION . In 1904 Kansas and Nebraska will be fifty years old , having been organized as territories in 1 S 54 . Kansas proposes to celebrate this fiftieth anniversary by a grand midcontinental exposition at Topeka , her capital city , in 1904 . This is to be on a scale commensurate with its importance , and in it every Kansan and all his relations , wherever located , should have a deep and active interest . To this celebration the world will be invited , and Kansas and the great central west will be seen as they really are , and in their good clothes . The state has from its beginning been in many respects woefully misunderstood by strangers , and nothing will do so much to set aright before the public at large her advantages , resources , prosperity and possibilities , in genial climate , fertile soil , mines , schools , churches and happy homes , as an exposition such as is proposed . The preliminary work of preparation is already being pushed , much o...

SALES A SUCCESS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1901

SALES A SUCCESS . The experiment of holding public sales of Berkshires under the auspices of the American Berkshire Association during the past year proved to be such a pronounced success that the association at its recent annual meeting decided to enlarge upon the plan of holding- sales for the first year of the new century . The public sales held last season at Chicago , Springfield and Kansas City by the Association brought into the sale ring some very choice animals by ¦ em *^ 4 Xs--GBttV ! ira : i 3 VZ & - ^ tPj : z & xr . «* the great majority of the breeders c # Berkshires . The very satisfactory prices realized by parties making their first consignment to these sales demonstrated that the quality and breeding of the stock has more to do in obtaining good prices than the extended reputation of the sellers . The large number of buyers in attendance at the public sales referred to above making their first purchases of Berkshires confirms the opinion prev...

THE RACES OF CORN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1901

THE RACES OF CORN . A . S . Hitchcock , Experiment Station , Manhattan , Kan ., writes : Indian corn has been in cultivation by the native races of America for an indefinite period . It probably originated from a wild form somewhere on the Mexican plateau . Botanists usually refer all our forms to one species , Zea Mays , with several well-marked subspecies or races . There are five important races of corn grown in the United States ou a commercial scale : L Dent Corns . —A part of the starch in the grain is a close , hard texture . This is called the horny endosperm and is found along the sides of the kernel , while the softer portion , or starchy endosperm , is found in the center , extending to the summit . In drying the center shrinks more than the rest and hence leaves a dent at the apex of the grain . Dent corns are the common field varieties grown in the corn belt and are almost the only kinds exported . There are various colors , white , yellow and mottled ( calico ) , being...
