Farming with Brains [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Farming with Brains the home on the farm and make it more interesting . I tell you , this means something . Wednesday I took the train for your city to attend a meeting of the Illinois section of the Maize propaganda , which seeks to increase the export trade in corn , and plans were there laid which I am confident mean something for the American agriculturist . Gen . Carr said that both Senator Allison and Congressman Cannon had assured him that we should have $ 75 , 000 at least , and perhaps $ 100 , 000 , for an exhibit at Paris , and that the bill should read for corn . And to-day I am going to Eureka to look after the camp grounds at that place . We have thirty acres of the finest grounds in the state only a few miles from Peoria and a quarter of a mile from two railroads , with a hotel and a large number of tents , and here I trust we shall hold a three weeks meeting this summer , the entire middle week to be devoted to a great farmers institute , before which will come the be...

A Last Word [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

A Last Word Trees that are to be transplanted this spring should be in the ground very soon . When ready to transplant and set in their permanent place see to it that they are properly set . If the roots have been bruised or mangled in digging cut off the ragged ends , leaving them smooth and clean in order that the fibrous feed roots may have an opportunity to start quickly . Take pains to keep the roots from getting dry in the March or April winds . Roots cannot stand the sun and wind and great care should be exercised in this regard . In setting a tree remember that it is impossible to dig the hole too large or too deep . Be liberal about this matter and then fill the hole so as to allow the tree to set as deep in the ground as it grew in the nursery . Put soft fine soil in the bottom and set the roots down on this gently , working them down so as to bring them in contact with the soil , then fill in carefully and pack the soil firmly about the roots . The man who sets trees the ...

Who Would Be a Napoleon ? [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Who Would Be a Napoleon ? We hear or read occasionally of living men who are Napoleons in some line or other , as Napoleons of finance , Napoleons of journalism , and the like . A reviewer summarizes the concluding chapters of a recently published comprehensive history of Napoleon the great in the following language : As to his morals , he was utterly without scruple . He felt completely absolved from the rules that govern others . He was licentious with women , he never hesitated at a lie if anything was to be gained by it , he took property which did not belong to him , and encouraged his marshals and soldiers to do the same , he did not shrink from murder ( instancing the execution of the Due dEnghien ) . In his earlier years there was no trickery too mean for him to adopt if he thereby advanced his personal fortunes ; and when he came to power he acted in the same manner on a larger scale . He had not the faintest conception of what is termed in modern phrase the instincts of a ...

Kaffir Corn as Human Pood [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Kaffir Corn as Human Pood An extended notice of the value of Kaffir corn as a crop in sections where drought is common , and to its successful use as a food for live stock appears in another part of this paper . We wish to add a word concerning its value as human food . An enterprising clergyman , discovering the attractions of the African product while residing in Kansas , began the manufacture of Kaffir corn meal in a Chicago suburb , but evidently found it difficult to convince the world of its fine qualities , for soon he went out of business . It is unfortunate that he did so , for the virtues of the Kaffir corn in the domestic cuisine are many and important . Delicious gems are made from the meal , and the famous buckwheat flapjack stands nowhere in comparison with the pancake made from this meal . They are light , fine flavored and wholesome , and can be eaten and digested by those who never dare touch a pancake of the old order . If Kansans but knew it , they have in this pr...

Cultivation [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Cultivation Now , children , we shall proceed to water this garden with a rake ! This is the introduction to one of Prof . L . H . Baileys instructive talks to children upon the proper methods of gardening . Paradoxical as it may seem , it contains the philosophy of the conservation of moisture and the key to results in agriculture . To the farmer in the sub-arid sections of the country it points the way out of failure to success . Cultivation of the soil will accomplish wonders , is accomplishing them every day , and while some men seek great systems of irrigation ( and these are all right so far as they go ) others are turning the deserts into bloom , through the simpler method of cultivation , and the hum of the reaper has succeeded to the cry of the coyote because the harrow has been put to its proper use . A North Dakota correspondent emphasizes in this issue of The Farmers Voice the importance of the dust blanket to the wheat growers of that magnificent agricultural state , an...

Sheep Next week s issue of The Farmers Voice will be a Sheep Special . The advance in this important branch of animal industry during the last two years has been phenomenal , and some account of it from those most directly interested will be of great interest and value . We are promised some very interesting matter from the experts which should be read by all who are interested in the development of farming interests . Among the features which will appear is an article from the pen of that leader among the men devoted to American live stock interests , and whose faith In the future of sheep in the United States is abounding —Thos . Shaw of the Minnesota Agricultural college , who will discuss The Sheep Industry in the United States—Its Importance , Recent Advance , and Possible Future . Those who have listened to Mr .

II1 ^ Variation in Plants 1 ^ ^ [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

II1 ^ Variation in Plants 1 ^ ^ # € ? ^ I . H . Rccd , Grand Rapids , WIS . 2 ? ffl THIS subject is too large to be covered in the space alloted to it , and I will therefore endeavor to call attention to a few points only touching upon the theme . My object in selecting this topic was to try and arouse interest in a closer study of nature and the wonders that are around us on every hand . Many have seen what is known as the striped or ribbon grass , and noted that no two blades have the same marking , but did it ever occur to you that on this great earth there are no two trees exactly alike ? Neither are any two leaves upon a tree exactly alike ; no two plants are exactly alike , nor two blades of grass In all the world that are exactly alike . Is there any other study so inspiring as the study of nature and her wonderful laws ? We often hear it said that like begets like , but this is not exactly the truth , for although there may be a greater similarity from proper selection in br...

Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Agriculture . Select ! ngSeed A great deal of the talk wq hear about seed running out is based on nothing . Thousands of dollars are spent every year in buying seed in order to get a change that will do better on the land where it is to be grown than that which had been planted there in previous seasons . , There is rarely any use of changing seed except as it has been allowed to deteriorate in the hands of the grower . Every farmer should grow those varieties that do best with him , with the climate and in the latitude where he is located . It is impossible for the man in northern Illinois to grow the large kinds of corn that do well In the southern part of the state ! Last fall at the Illinois State fair there was on exhibition a stalk of corn on which the ear was twelve feet from the ground . It would be folly for a man in Wisconsin to plant seed of such corn expecting to reap a harvest . In all kinds of farm seeds there are certain varieties that do best with a given environment...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Garden and Orchard The Farm Garden There are several valuable vegetables that are not often found In the average f » rm garden , although of the easiest culture AH of them are valuable as food and make palatable dishes when properly served . Probably the most Important of these Is asparagus . Nearly every farm door yard has somewhere in it a bunch of asparagus grown as an ornamental plant , but very rarely used as a food . This comes very early in the spring and is a delicious food , tasting much like green neas and a valuable medicine for all kidney diseases . It is so hardy that It will grow year after year without the least attention In spite of grass or weeds , but it is greatly improved by proper cultivation and fertilization , the newer sort being much larger than the com mon variety . Conover s Colossal and Palmetto asparagus are both very large varieties . Plants may be bought of seedmen at low rates , or seed planted and the young plants transplanted into the beds after the...

All questions relating to Animal Husbandry , save those belonging to the Veterinary department will bo answered by Prof , Davenport . Healthy Pigs Pigs are not naturally lazy and only become so when not properly fed . Shut a pig up in a small lot and feed him on corn and mill stuff without an opportunity to get any succulent feed and he will become lazy and inactive , content to lie in a hole on the shady side of the fence from morning until night the summer through . The natural feed of the hog is grass , nuts , roots , grubs and wild grains secured by foraging in the forest If from the first a pig is given the run of a field or large lot and has grass or clover to pasture on , with the addition of a little grain , he is not li...

Poultry and Bees [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 26 March 1898

Poultry and Bees Fertile Eggs A fertile egg is one in which there is the germ of a future chick or other bird , according to the kind of an egg it happens to be . A great many people think the chick in an egg grows from the whole substance of the contents of the shell . This is wrong . The embryo in the eggs bears about the same relation to the chick that may be hatched from the egg that a loaf of bread does to a man who is about to eat it . In a freshlaid egg the life principle—the future chick—is a microscopic germ , which under a strong glass looks something like one of the wigglers we find in summer in stagnant water . As soon as the proper degree of heat is applied in the proper manner Jhis tiny germ begins to expand , and at the end of twenty-four hours , if the egg is broken , a tiny red spot will be found , which , upon being looked at under a microscope will be found to be pulsating , and will continue to do so for some minutes . By another day this spot will have become V-...
