A Friendly letter to " Wool Grower . " [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868

A Friendly letter to Wool Grower . T address my letter to you as the representative of a most respectable and candid class , who , however , I apprehend , may not always view matters from an entirely disinterested standpoint , especially If they have suffered from the evil they seek to remedy . That there is , by force of existing circumstances , gross Injustice done to wool growers who aim to put their wool up in merchantable condition , no candid buyer can deny . That honest wool growers should feel indignant that they have received no adequate compensation for the pains they have taken to present their wool ln unexceptionable condition , is certainly not unreasonable . The fact is too palpable to be denied , that , as you state , wool put up in poor condition has brought , in the West , relatively a higher price , as it always will , in an excited or advancing market , than wool in prime condition . As this is unjust , since it Is offering a premium for knavery , the question com...

HEWS OF THE WEEK . —The Senate Anally decided to allow as many of the managers and the President s counsel as desired to speak to have that privilege . All or nearly all will avail themselves of this privilege . Messrs . Evurto and Bingham will close the arguments , unless Mr .

« » » Demand for Farm Laborers . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868

« » » Demand for Farm Laborers . We confess to surprise at the answers to the inquiry we made a few weeks since , as to the demand for and wages paid to farm laborers . With only four or five exceptions , there were no reports of scarcity ; in a very few cases there were intimations of an over-supply ; generally , however , the supply and demand were about equal . In the eight or ten States , all Western , from which reports were received , there was also a greater degree of uniformity in the prices paid than we had anticipated . The aver ] age price , as stated , is from $ 18 to $ 20 per month , with board . For first class men as high as $ 30 was reported in a few cases . In several cases the rate is mentioned as less than last year . With the large amount of land cultivated this year for the first time , and the increased area of land generally being devoted to cereals , we had expected to receive many statements that labor was poorly supplied . We are glad , however , to learn t...

m • • — Crop Prospects . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868

m • • — Crop Prospects . We have received a considerable number of reports of the appearance of the vajrious crops , since we made up our brief general report two weeks since . These have come from Illinois , Michigan , Iowa , Wisconsin , Missouri and Ohio . In almost every case , In the spring wheat growing regions they report very considerably increased amounts of land devoted to that crop . The same is true of corn . The reports from Michigan generally state that the . winter wheat , especially that sown early , is looking well . Owing to the drouth last Fall , in many places in Michigan , much of the wheat was sown late , and in some the average amount of land was not sown . The reports received from Northern Ohio represent the winter wheat looking well , and that more more spring wheat than ever before will be sown . The weather during April was generally cold , and the season is now perhaps no further advanced ln many places than it was in 1867 . From all the direct reports we...

Flowing Land While Wet [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868

Flowing Land While Wet I see but little said about one or the greatest of evils—plowing land whilst wet .- Is , there anything more destructive to the soil ? . I say , without any fear of being refuted , ; that there is no course the farmer could pursue that will sooner destroy the fertility of the soil than the above . • In 1843 I saw this tested as follows : — Whilst preparing corn land , the ground in , good condition , a hard rain fell . As soon as It cleared off the teams resumed their work . The wet and dry plowing were planted the same day , with the same kind of corn , and cultivated alike . As soon as the corn was i up , we could see the place to a row , where % the wet and dry work was done . The corn on the wet land was yellow , did not grow 1 as fast as the rest . At harvest time , the-i workmen ( though not aware of the rewon , ) J noticed the difference as soon as they CUMK 1 to it—that which was worked wet yielding J one-third less . y A .

Minnesota Com , One of our correspondents recently addressed a note to the Secretary of the Goodhue , Minn ., FarmersClub in relation to a kind of corn , of which we recently published the reported statement that it yielded 137 bushels of shelled corn to the acre , with several ears to each stalk , etc .

Meteorology . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural — 2 May 1868

Meteorology . This is a subject in which we are all vitally interested . All classes and all interests of Society are more . or less effected by it ; and still we have no * solution of the problem , aud no Associations of science or useful knowledge particularly devoted to the subject . AU is chaos and confusion , without a beginning , a middle , or an end . The suggestions proper to be made at this time would seem to be , to form an United States Meteoroloalcal Association with auxiliary Associations in each State . In these associations the gifted minds of science , and practical observations may be brought together , and a beginning of the solution of the problem commenced , which in time may accomplish the whole object . At the present time one thing we want to know is a clearly defined boundary of the extensive drouth of 1867 in the United States . If these Associations were organized , and in active operation and in communication with each other , this information might be fur...
