Our Third Anniversary . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Our Third Anniversary . It is now three years since the present editor assumed editorial control of Wallaces Farmer with his sons aa joint owners of the entire stock of the company and in charge of the business management In the announcement of this change we wrote : In compliance with a general demand and expectation expressed in countless ways , I undertake the work , notwithstanding the hard times , of establishing a farm paper in Iowa that will aim to be a faithful exponent of the agricultural interests of the state and that will never need to apologize either for its speech or for its silence . In doing this I rely on the active cooperation and efficient aid of the farmers of the state in the attempt to protect whose interests I have already suffered severe financial loss . We were walking by faith and not by sight We believed that the farmers of Iowa would rally to the support of a paper of this character , with a known editor , and the result has fully justified our expectati...
Shipping Cattle No . 2 . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Shipping Cattle No . 2 . i o WAi ______ c ___ r FABMBB , The farmer who fattens and ships his own cattle has many advantages over the shipper who buys and ships , for having everything necessary in his own hands he has absolute control of every detail , and can fit his cattle in the best possible manner for the journey to market . When a farmer sells cattle to a shipper , as a macter of course , he is desirous that they welgn as much as possible , and unfortunately for both cattle and buyer , means for increasing the weight are often resorted to that are most reprehensible . Among the many devices for increasing the weight probably salt , for the purpose of creating an abnormal thirst followed by an abundant supply of water , is the most common , and at the same time the most injurious to the unfortunate animals . The writer of this , when shipping stock , has spent many a hard night , assisting shippers with their cattle , when as the result of ignorance or greed , the animals woul...

The Fodder Crop [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
The Fodder Crop To WAT . T , t &lt; T _ jf Tjamamt There is no waste on the farm that equals the waste of the corn fodder crop . A goodly number of the best farmers have realized the full value of this most excellent stock food and do not think of such a thing as not securing each year a good share of this product I have for three years cut a total of 260 acres of fodder , and would not feel justified if I did not cut from 80 to 100 acres yearly .

Now as to the value of shredded fodder , must say , in my judgment , it is far in advance of the best timothy hay , and is , I think , on a par , or still in the lead , with clover and timothy mixed , all things considered . The cost and labor of shredded fodder has stood in th...

Cure for Lumpy Jaw . Xo Wi ____ x _ sr _•*__«___« I have read in your paper from time to time articles concerning lumpy jaw in cattle and the different remedies and modes of operating on them , so I thought I would send you a prescription for a liniment which I and my neighbors have been using for a number of years , and I have yet to learn of a failure to cure . Below I give the receipt , which will coat fifty cents at the drug store : % pint alcohol ; 1 oz . camphor gum ; Yi oz . spirits ammonia ; % gill spirits of turpentine ; % pint sweet oil . Dissolve camphor gum in alcohol , then mix . To be used as follows : Apply three mornings , then skip three and apply three more ; and if not blistered , repeat Apply enough of the liniment to thoroughly wet the bunch and rub well with the hand . I think any one trying this once will never be without it D . W . BENEDICT . Chickasaw county , la .

Farm Economy . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Farm Economy . fo WAU- A - BS i ? iBWiat We fear there are some farmers very inncli astray in . their practice of economy on the farm . Tools are left out doors to save building sheds . The stock is allowed to shift for itself , and animals lose flesh and actually suffer to save preparing feed and shelter . Crops are hurried in without properly preparing the ground , to save hiring help . Corn fodder is not saved and straw not half stacked , for economy . Strange sort of economy this we are practicing . Putting our capital into tools , getting part of it back in use of tools and sacrificing the balance to this false economy . Why not preserve each tool uninjured by the weather till actually worn out in service ? We let our cattle get a start on the pasture In summer and then allow them to lose It all trying In winter to utilize weather-beaten , unnutritious cornstalks . Why not cut up some of the corn when it can be done almost as quickly and cheaply as husking , and make the cattle...
Hedge Fence . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Hedge Fence . It &gt; W ____ j _&lt;__ f »___¦__» Mr . Hastie , of Warren county , asks opinions concerning hedge fences , and to keep up in our collar we must comply with his request When I came ln posession of this farm there was forty rods of hedge on the south line that had never been cut . It was was perhaps eighteen or twenty years old . There was forty more rods that had not been trimmed for five years , and with the pressure of business there seemed to be no time to attend to it in the spring . It was an eye sore all Bummer and generally speaking I had a poor opinion of it Well , ln December the time arrived to attend to that hedge and I went at it and it Beemed to meet me more than half way every time , but I was game and after lots of scratching , jagging , clothes tearing , etc , I came off victorious and since that time the hedge has been closely trimmed every August the latter part , and now it is a nice , safe , substantial fence , with just one point i...
A Medicine Cupboard for the Horse Stable . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
A Medicine Cupboard for the Horse Stable . ro WAIXAOTB F ___________ Take a cracker box , hinge the lid with leather straps hings , put cleats on the Inside and a shelf on them , then take a large nail and drive through j &gt; t the back near the top , and turn it down , making a loop of the end to hang it on a nail by , and the thing is done . In it can be kept the boxes of salve for sore shoulders , the can of tar , can of lard and kerosene , the bottles , etc ., usually stuck behind a post , on wallplates and where not . Then the men dont have xo run to the house for the turpentine bottle , liniment bottle , etc ., but know just where to lay hands on anything of the kind when wanted . One of the same kind should hang in a closet in the house for the medicines every well regulated house has around somewhere : camphor bottle on the shelf , peppermint in cupboard , etc . M . J . S .
Sheep Lice . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Sheep Lice . TO WAUJLOXB lfAfiX ___ e A subscriber who lives near Clio , Iowa , writes : I would like to have you tell me how to get rid of lice on sheep . I have one hundred head of sheep and there are four of them that seem to be lousy . I send some specimens of the lice . The lice sent are the common sheep lice , trichodectes spfcaerocephalous , and if abundant may cause considerable trouble . Dipping after the sheep are sheared is the most effective remedy , but ln the meantime the lice may be reduced in numbers and their damage much lessened , if not entirely prevented , by dusting Persian insect powder down in the wool as close to the sheep s body as it can be got The California powder sold under the name of Suhach is perhaps most certain to be fresh and effective .

Permanent Clover Meadow . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 18 February 1898
Permanent Clover Meadow . re w _ ,- _ - ____• . # _______ ot- __ In my twenty-four years experience in raising clover in Shannon county , Kans ., I have found that I can continue my c lover meadows more than two years by resowing the same in the spring of the second year s growth and giving the ground a thorough harrowing . I find this to be a good practice at this time , as well as when the previous season has been very dry , or the winter has been very severe on the stand of clover . BRADFORD MILLER . Shannon connty .
