Morgan Types . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
Morgan Types . mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm * mwmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm * iaammmmmi ^ mw ===- ^ mu—mmmm Special Article No . 3 The intending purchaser of a Morgan horse may be surprised at the vauety ot types , all ot Morgan breeding , that will be offered to him . So different have been the types of horses shown in some Morgan classes in Ver mont , that the management has seen fit to instruct the judges as , to what type they should make the basis of their awards . While generally , there are in all , certain characters distinctly Morgan , still these horses may be of all shapes and sizes and go all gaits . The simple fact that the type has been undergoing something of an evolution would perhaps account for a noticeable lack of uniformity at present . It seems probable that out of the present stimulus to the Morgan horse industry will come a marked preference for some one type , with the result that that will be the one selected to , most generally in the future . Today the demand for Mo...
Even Worse Than We Thought [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
Even Worse Than We Thought Depositions Taller , in the Case of the Farmers Co-operative Harvesting Machine Co . Vs . The Lawrence Publishing Co . ( Concluded from last week . ) In the cross-examination of John L . Gilligan it was shown , from a reading of the minutes of the board of directors , that the 6 percent guarantee on class B stock , when not actually earned , was to be charged against the Whitely interests , with the understanding that as a consideration for the guarantee the said interests should be entitled to any accumulation above 10 percent in any one year . Class A stock was lo receive pro rata dividends earned on all stock of the company , without limit as to amount . It was also shown that the board of directors had placed the management of the plant entirely in Mr . Whitelys bands , and that this arrangement had continued , under the insistence of the board of directors . I lenry Broome , expert machine man , testified that he had been in the reaper and mower busin...
SUMMARY . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
SUMMARY . A brief summary of the points in the testimony given above , and in last week s issue , will serve to show that The Ohio Farmer was not wrong in making the statement that resulted in the $ 100 , 000 suit being brought against it * y the Farmers Co-operative Harvesting Machine Company . As stated at the beginning Hie reason the article of Oct . 20 , 1906 , was published was in order to- reply to a large number of inquiries that were constantly coming to this office , concerning the advisability of investing in the stock of the company . These inquiries had been answered by mail up to that time , but so many reached us that in order to save time and answer all at once we took this method . The published statement was not made until investigation had convinced us that the company s business was not being managed conservatively and that the stock of the company would , therefore , not be a wise investment for farmers . The testimony given above proves most conclusively that th...

A HANDY STALK DRAG . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
A HANDY STALK DRAG . The accompanying cut shows a convenient drag for breaking stalks in winter . The device is so simple as to need no description other than the illustration . The plank should be about three by eight inches , and long enough to break five rows . Taking an uneven number of rows enables the team to straddle the middle row . The manner of hitching is very simple and tan be made at any blacksmith shop . The rods should be bolted to the plank about four feet from the ends to prevent the plank from jumping . A rope may be attached to the plank near the middle to help guide it on sloping ground . On the lower front edge of the plank should be nailed an old wagon tire , with the worn side of the tire next the plank , leaving the sharp cutting edge down . This drag should be used in winter when the stalks are frozen . We have found it to be very satisfactory . —Subscriber , Polk , Ohio .
SOMETHING ABOUT OHIO INSTI -TUTES . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
SOMETHING ABOUT OHIO INSTITUTES . The writer is an old time farmers institute worker . For some years he has not been in the Ohio work , and he comes back to it with renewed interest and finds many interesting things to note . He finds himself almost a stranger , too . Think of the Old Guard ! Ellis , dead : Terry , reared : Todd , retired : Brigham , dead ; KcKelvey , retired ; Palm , retired ; Wallace , retired , and so of a good many others who flourished when the writer was just entering the ranks , gone , dead , tired or retired . And some have gone up higher like Alva Agee , called to do great work in a neighboring state . Well , it was a good work that we tried to do , years ago , and what is the work like today ; how does it strike an old-timer , come back again ? The people seem much the same , I hough perhaps more teachable now than they were years ago , or else the writer is better fitted to teach , and maybe both are true . The audiences are still among the best and most...
BUILDING DEPARTMENT . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
BUILDING DEPARTMENT . ( Conducted by John L . Shawver . ) PLAN NO . 67 . Small Barn . —M . V . H ., Huron , O ., wants plans for a small barn . We sub mit two plans about the size he wants with different arrangement of stables . Either plan may be varied , changing the horse stalls into cow stalls or into box stalls , or storage room for tools , wagons , buggies , etc ., to meet the needs of the owner . Either of these barns may be constructed in the locality named for about $ 400 . Free Seeds . —I enter a protest against the abandonment of Congressional free seed distribution . It gives general distribution to the best varieties of seeds and compels seedsmen to keep up a high standard . The opposition comes mainly from seedsmen . I am sorry to see The Ohio Farmer favoring the cessation of this practice . When we get seeds from the government we know they can be relied upon . We do not know this when we get them from seedsmen . They often send out old seeds . A . G ., Eagleson , Lor...

Thousands of Women Have Kidney Trouble and Never Suspect It . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
Thousands of Women Have Kidney Trouble and Never Suspect It . An interesting letter to our readers from Mrs . Gertrude Warner Scott , of Vinton , Iowa . Vinton , Iowa . My trouble began with pain in my stomach , so severe that it seemed as if knives were cutting me . I was treated by two of the best physicians In the county , and consulted another . None of them suspected that the cause of my trouble was kidney disease . They told me that I had cancer of the stomach , and would die . I grew so weak that I could not walk , and I only weighed sixty pounds . One day my brother saw an advertisement of Dr . Kilmer s Swamp-Root , the great kidney , liver and bladder remedy . He bought a bottle at our drug store and I took it . My family could see a change in me for the better , so they obtained more , and I continued the use of Swamp-Root regularly . I was . so weak and run down that It took considerable to build me up again . I am now well , thanks to Dr . Kilmer s SwampRoot , and am kee...
SO . OHIO AND KENTUCKY . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
SO . OHIO AND KENTUCKY . At present thousan of growers are busy stripping and preparing their tobacco for market . Meanwhile it is thought that the tobacco trust is pursuing its usual method in an effort to control prices . It is alleged that by contracting an occasional crop early In the season and at high prices they have sought to establish values beyond the reach of competitive buyers . Having thus established a high valuation they have suddenly quit buying and now declare the market of . Farmers , influenced by the prices paid a very few of their number , are holding for similar prices . The trust is lying In wait till the crop is all ready and till by force of circumstances a few growers are compelled to sell . They then expect to precipitate a landslide , buying practically the entire crop in a short time and at greatly reduced prices . Such is the situation as viewed from the standpoint of the grower . Opposed to this we have a determined effort on the part of growers to con...
ALFALFA IN NORTHEASTERN OHIO . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
ALFALFA IN NORTHEASTERN OHIO . I have always had the same idea about alfalfa growing in northeastern Ohio that Mr . Chamberlain has held . To convince myself I decided to try it in a small way on a piece of naturally well-drained clay soil . The plot was in clover sod which had been manured with a light dressing of manure drawn direct from the gutter and spread on the ground in the winter . The ground was plowed early last year and planted to corn . The corn yielded one hundred bushels per acre . The field was plowed again the latter part of last April and was dragged over once . Then I let it lay until about the 20 th of June , when it was inoculated with sweet clover soil and disked thoroughly . It was finished up with a smoothing harrow which left it in fine condition . The lalter part of June I sowed the seed at the rate of 20 pounds per acre and applied with it , BOO pounds per acre of commercial fertilizer which analyzed 6 percent potash and 10 percent phosphoric acid . Both s...
INCREASING FERTILITY . [Newspaper Article] — Ohio Farmer — 16 February 1907
INCREASING FERTILITY . How can fertility be kept up and Increased without the aid of manure ? Would it be better to sell such land ( run down , and barnyard manure out of the question ) than attempt to bring it up ? Can . I practice the usual 4-year rotation , or what ? Shall I plow any clover under ? What fertilizers shall I use—bone , rock , mixed , or what ? What is the difference in fertilizing value of phos . acid in bone , rock , tankage , etc . There are many such farms . If we can not keep them up with profit we had better sell them . Dont advise pasturing . L . W . —The three chief things in maintaining and increasing fertility are drainage , cultivation and manure . In the absence of barnyard or , stable manure artificial fertilizers must be used . Drainage makes land porous and removes surplus water , and with thorough cultivation ( pulverizing ) , gives nature every opportunity possible . Use a good superphosphate , liberally , on wheat , and sow to clover . Once get clo...
