COST OF HARD ROADS [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1901

COST OF HARD ROADS Only the main roads should be macadamized , and these should be from nine to twelve feet wide , and in every case there should be a dirt road provided alongside . The dirt road , when dry and hard , Is the best road known , and will be used In preference to the stone or gravel road . When the rain comes travel will all go to the stone road . This method lengthens the life of the hard roads , which , if properly constructed and occasionally looked after , will last hundreds of years . The old Roman roads , built two thousand years ago in Europe , are still good . The cost of building hard roads twelve feet wide , where material i . « convenient , as in many parts of the northern and the extreme southern parts of- the state , will be from a minimum , of $ 1 , 000 per mile to a maximum of $ 3 , 000 per mile . In other portions , where the material will have to be shipped some distance by rail , the expense will run from $ 2 , 000 to $ 4 , 000 per mile . For the purpo...

GOOD ROADS REFORMATION . Present and Past Views of Judge E .

INHERITANCE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903

INHERITANCE . Prof . E . E . Elliott writes : We confidently expect the offspring of the famous trotter to develop similar speed . Why ? Because he has inherited a racing form simply ? By no means . The former is only one element in his inheritance . The colt posseses a racing temperament with all that this includes of vim , energy , coolheadedness and keen perceptions . When we wish to train a dog to hunt birds we do not take a bull dog or a bloodhound , but prefer instead a dog whose ancestors had acquired the faculty of discovering such game and act on the assumption that the pup will reveal similar traits . Chances are more than even that the heifer calf of the kicking cow will as likely produce that habit as she will the material accomplishments at the milking pail and kicking , while a physical act is after all a psychological demonstration .

RURAL FREE MAIL DELIVERY [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903

RURAL FREE MAIL DELIVERY Its Future Depends on the Solution of the Road Problem . The remarkable growth of the rural free mail delivery system , and the willingness of Congress to appropriate money for extensions faster than the extensions can be made have been surprising even to the most enthusiastic friends of the system . Why , the thing is spreading . likajvjliifir ^ remarked a gentleman who had been reading up cfn the subject . At this rate , rural free , mail delivery will be universal in a few years . At first glance , this , view appears to be correct , but in fact such a view is merely superficial . It takes no great amount of investigation to convince one that the system must meet and overcome some very great obstacles before it can ^ jeven become general , to say nothing of being universal . So far the system has sailed on smooth and open seas with favorable winds . But now it is rapidly approaching a region of rocks and snags and storms . Dropping , the marl tine figure ...

THE COMMERCIAL CENTER OBI THE WORLD . The -commercial and financial centef of the world is now no longer London , but New York City , according tfl Brooks Adams in his latest book , The New Empire . When Pittsburg , in 1897 , succeeded in underselling all the world ln steel , the worlds money center began to move slowly from the other side to this side of the Atlantic , Simultaneously the political center began to move to Washington , which ifl now fast becoming the political , diplomatic and social hub of the globe . . The social life in Washington , this season , is no longer local , but national and indeed international . Washington is no longer the most uninteresting post for Europe s great diplomats , but this capital is now becoming preferred by them . So attractive is It that even our own rich people are going there instead of abroad . National scientists and artists are taking up their abode there , to be joined very soon by their international brethren , for Washington is a...

SHALLOW AND DEEP CULTURE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903

SHALLOW AND DEEP CULTURE . A test of the relative values of deep and shallow cultivation of the corn at the Nevada Experiment station demonstrated beyond doubt the superiority of the latter method . Four acres of land were divided into tracts of one acre each , and each tract was cultivated by a different cultivator , the same one being used on each throughout the summer . The same number of cultivations were given in each case . In the fall the corn was picked from each acre and weighed . The yield was as follows : Method of Yield cultivation . ner acre . Deep cultivation 59 bushels Shallow cultivation 68 _ 69 69 The land receiving shallow cultivation was stirred to a depth of three inches , that receiving deep cultivation to a depth of six inches . Shallow cultivation for corn possesses two advantages over the other method . In the first place , by stirring the soil to a depth of only -three inches the air does not penetrate too deeply , and it does not dry out to such a depth . A...

APPLE FRUIT ROTS . In Circular 37 of the Agriculture Experiment Station of Illinois , reference is made to apple fruit rots as follows : During the season of 1902 the apple growers of Illinois lost at least $ 1 , 500 , 000 from the rotting of the fruit on the trees . Illinois was not the exceptional in this . The trouble was widespread from the eastern seaboard ta the- wentera -pteniSr- ^ t ^ ras-csttaay only severe south of about 39 degrees north latitude , or in Illinois south of ¦ Effingham and Jerseyville . Except in the fcreater than ordinary loss there was nothing new in the occurrence last year . The same kind of destruction has happened to a greater or less extent throughout great areas of the country every year during at least a Quarter of a century , yet there is comparatively little known of the causes or of a cure . Some excellent studies have been made , the results of which have been published , but there is still great need of more information upon which methods of pr...
