Humus In the Soil . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Humus In the Soil . Many Western farmers are just beginning to realize the value of humus or vegetable mold in the soil . They note that when the country is first broken up all kinds of crops seem to do surprisingly well . The soil retains moisture and resists floods and washing in the most remarkable way , and the common remark of the farmers is that they never saw a country that would stand so much wet weather in a wet time or so much dry weather in time of drouth . After the lands have been farmed for twelve or fifteen years without rotation of crops , they begin to complain that something is wrong with the soil , that it washes as it never d . d before , and that it will stand neither wet nor drouth , that spring wheat will not thrive as it did , and that something is radically wrong , generally attiibuting it to the change of seasons or climate . The main thing that is wrong is that the soil has exhausted its humus or vegetable matter . As soon as we begin to cultivate the soil...

Clover Sown on Snow . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Clover Sown on Snow . A correspondent from Hull , Iowa , writes : I think you advocate sowing clover in February or March , trusting to the spring rains to get a stand . I confess that my faith in this method is a little shaken . It seems to me that the sparrows and snow birds will pick it all up before it has a chance to grow . My pasture is almost all timothy . I sowed clover enough , but failed to get much of a stand . I am at a loss to know what to do to secure a stand of clover . We have advised sowing clover and timothy on the last snow when the ground is full of moisture and the soil more or less clayey . In this case the freezing and thawing will cover it , even though the birds may get away with more or less of the seed . We do not advise this , however , in seasons when the ground is dry or when the soil is light or sandy , as there will not be enough movement in the soil during changes of temperature to cover it In this case we advise our correspondent to wait until that ...

High Priced Stock on the Ranges . The universal demand of [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

High Priced Stock on the Ranges . The universal demand of both cattle and sheep men whom we met at the recent convention at Denver , is that both cattle and sheep are high priced and scarce . Everything has been shipped out that could meet the wants of the market As proof of this , we cite the fact that while we were there lots of spring calves were sold in Denver . One from Utah at 922 . 00 a head , estimated to weigh from 350 to 400 pounds . An Iowa man who examined them said that part of them could not be sold at all to an Iowa farmer ; in this , however , we think he was mistaken , as Iowa farmers have been paying large prices for anything that has hoofs and hair . Another lot of over 100 head , from Arizona , weighing 350 pounds , brought 918 . 00 , and another of over 100 head from Idaho , brought 923 . 00 . Cattle are scarce on the ranges and high priced when the ranchman will sell calves to go into the pasture and feed lots of Iowa , Kansas , and Nebraska at these prices . A...

Put Horses in Good Condition . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Put Horses in Good Condition . Within the next three months large numbers of ihorses will be sold from Western farms for shipment to CMcago , to tihe Eastern cities , and to Kurope . We think we aire safe in saying that -farmers as a i-iile lose from five to ten dollars a head on these horses by mot having them in the pink of condition before offering itihem for sale . If farmers would sell horses in the same condition to which ) they buy other improved stock , they would at { east have a ctance to regain the losses wifidh they incur by buying stock that has been offered fat . We do not think much of the pig or the cattle or other live stock that have been pampered for sale . Tlhey ore not the profitable kind for the fatimer to purchase . Fat sells . Like charity , it covereth a multitude of sins . The two cases , however , are entirely different . The ihorses aire mot bought for breeding purposes , but for work . The buyer wants them fat because they are to be shipped long distance...

Concentration of the District School . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Concentration of the District School . At the Jones County institute held at Center Junction , we listened to a very able argument conducted by able persons on both sides , nearly all of them having had experience in teaching , on the question as to whether it were better to continue the present system of a school for each sub-district or whether there should be one graded school in the center of each township or in connection with the schools of a convenient village and the children conveyed at public expense to this central school . It was argued on the one hand that the schools were frequently very small , that as a result both teacher and scholars lost enthusiasm , that there could be no systematic grading even if the schools were large , that schools of this character had to put up with inferior and inexperienced teachers , that it was a useless expense to have school houses and incur running expenses each year when the entire number of scholars of a district could be properly ...

Give-away Agricultural Papers [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Give-away Agricultural Papers An Illinois subscriber of Wallaces Farmer , in speaking of the difficulty he encounters in persuading farmers to subscribe for an up-to-date , cash-in-advance , agricultural paper with an automatic stopper which stops when the subscription has expired , writes : The universal expression in this part of Illinois is hard times and no money . The next trouble is that we get three or four agricultural papers costing from twenty-five cents a year to nothing . Now , let us look at the papers : First there is a lot from Augusta , Maine , published to advertise their bogus jewelry . Next comes a lot from the Middle States advertising dairy and creamery supplies , with one from Chicago telling the farmers how to raise corn at a cost of six cents per bushel , written by some spiderlegged dude who would not know to which end of the plow to hitch the team , nor to which side of the cow to go if he wanted to milk her . That is not all . In your own city is a news pa...

The Fairfield Institute . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

The Fairfield Institute . The meeting of the Stock Breeders Association at Fairfield in the fall of 1896 had the effect of awakening the farmers adjacent to that prosperous city to the importance of a more full and complete discussion of agricultural questions . For that reason they urged strenuously that the stock breeders meet at that place in 1898 . Failing in this , they proceeded to organize an institute , which we must say , notwithstanding the bad weather on the second day , was one of the very best we have attended during this year . We have not space this week on account of the crowded condition of our columns to give any detailed report . Suffice it to say that many of the papers discussed were of unusual excellence and the attendance , when the weather permitted , was all that could be desired , and on the second day and night more than any one seemed to expect . It has een a puzzle to us all winter to know why farmers institutes Iwere not so well attended in southern Iow...

The Birmingham Institute . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

The Birmingham Institute . Van Buren County has been holding institutes for many years and therefore we were not surprised at the full attendance at the Birmingham institute this year , the high average quality of the papers and discussions , and the deep interest that pervaded the meeting from the morning of the first day to the evening of the second . We have not space for a full and detailed report We can not however , refrain from mentioning the large attendance of ladies , younger and older , and the very large attendance of young men and boys . One of the best papers read was by a boy named jtiall , about ten years old , prepared exclusively by himself , giving an account of his observations of insect life on the farm . If the farmers in any county will get their boys to seeing things , writing of what they see , and reading their papers at lyceums , and will then organize an institute in which these boys will take part with their sisters and mothers , we will guarantee that n...

The Gulf Route . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

The Gulf Route . We called the attention of our readers recently to the advantages that were offered by the Gulf Route for the shipment of freight Grain is being carried out in that direction in increasing quantities ; New York is no longer the leading export for grain , Baltimore is far ahead of it , and New Orleans is not far * behind , with Galveston and Port Arthur looming up in the distance as strong competitors with New Orleans for this southern trade . It now appears that packing house products are going by way of the Gulf , not merely from St Louis and Kansas City , but from Chicago . The announcement was made last week that some of the largest packing houses in that city have commenced shipping their products via the Chicago Great Western & Kansas City , Pittsburg and Gulf Routes to Port Arthur , Texas . The first steam ship sailing from Port Arthur last week carried five thousand tons of packing house products , half of which came from Chicago . It also carried...

Wheat Flour Adulteration . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Wheat Flour Adulteration . It is interesting to note how earnestly millers are protesting against the adulteration of wheat flour with corn meal and demanding legislation similar to that demanded and secured against the oleomargarine manufacturers by the dairymen of the West We believe they are right in this . All kinds of adulterations are dishonest Tnere is no objection to mixing corn meal with wheat flour provided it be honestly done and the flour sold as a mixture . All parties suffer when it is sold in any other way .

Sowing Blue Grass . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Sowing Blue Grass . Mr . Rufus B . Tucker , of Carroll county , Iowa , wishes to know how much blue grass seed should be put on an acre where there is a fairly good stand of small red clover and timothy in order to make a permanent pasture . We think seven pounds , or half a bushel , would be plenty , and if it were sown with the timothy and clover even less would do , the reason being that clover will usually work out if cut for hay and seed , in about two or three years , and if even a small sowing of blue grass is sown at the start , it would be ready to take possession as fast as the clover disappears , and in time will root out both timothy and clover .

Pauperizing the Farmers . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Pauperizing the Farmers . Philanthropists are generally correct in fact universally , that to give any man not in actual want something for nothing is to injure him , pauperize him , to take away his manly spirit , and make him feel that the world owes him a living , hence reformatory and benevolent institutions all go on the theory that a man should work or pay in some way for what he gets unless he is in absolute need and a legitimate subject for charity . It is not in human nature to put much value on that which comes to us for nothing unless it bring with it re membrance of friendship or has a sentimental value separate and apart from the thing itself . We value a book , a knife , or anything else that may come to us at Christmas time from a friend as an evidence of affectionate regard ; we cast aside the same thing with scorn that comes to us from a total stranger for the reason , though we may not put it in words , that in some way this man has an object in view and wishes to ...

A Low Cost Barn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

A Low Cost Barn . Professor Frank B . Emery , of the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station , has proposed a plan for a stable 30 feet by 20 feet , with 12 feet posts , and the second floor put in to give Sy , feet in the clear on the ground floor . The stalls are to occupy 10 feet by 30 A Low Cost Bum . feet of the building , vftiile the passage , wagons and storage occupy the remainder of the main floor . There will be storage for hay and fodder in the loft This barn can be built in three bants , or -ents , one of which could be devoted to stable , one to storage , and the middle one to passage , wagons , etc . In order to reduce cost of enclosing the stalls and storage are put all on one side ( the north ) , and the storage and vehicle passage through and in the south side . The south side may be covered with slats , and doors put at the ends , or , if desired , the ends may be tightly boarded and the entrance may be on the south . With this last arrangement the roof coul...

Banks and County Deposits . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Banks and County Deposits . Senator Mitchell , of Corning , Union county , has introduced a bill giving the counties authority to collect and receive interest on deposits and country funds . Some of the counties have been doing this , to their great advantage , and should this bill pass , as we believe it will , the practice will be general . The Farmer was one of the first papers of the state to advocate this much needed reform . It is not a question of the rate of interest that the banks shall pay , but the fact that interest is paid . The county will be so much richer it is true , but the greater benefit will be a moral one . As it is now , there is a great deal of disturbance in politics by reason of the anxiety of banks to elect a treasurer who will favor them with the deposits . More than that ; school directors are sometimes selected , at the Instance of the bank desiring the free use of money , who have no practical qualification for the office , and who would not be chosen ...

Cost of School Books . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Cost of School Books . The school book question will not down so long as the production of school books is in the hands of the trust . Hon . Henry Sabin , for a number of years superintendent of the public schools In Iowa , has recently issued an interesting pamphlet , in which he gives tne cost of school books In other states , in Iowa counties and in Iowa citites , as follows : Other Iowa Iowa States Co . Cities . Fourth reader $ 0 . 41 $ 0 . 46 $ 0 . 55 Arithmetic 48 . 46 . 56 Elem ry Geography . 40 . 46 . 63 Grammar 44 . 52 . 57 Physiology 63 . 41 • . 67 Writing book 05 . 07 . 09 Speller 17 . 14 . 18 History 70 . 77 . 90 From the above it will be seen that the counties in Iowa pay 12 per cent more for the fourth reader than is paid in other states , and the cities pay 24 per cent more . The counties pay 4 per cent less for arithmetics , 16 per cent more for geographies , 18 per cent more for grammars , 15 per cent less for physiologies , 40 per cent more for writing books , and ...

The Real Question in Buying Feeders . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

The Real Question in Buying Feeders . The question before the Iowa farmer who wishes to buy stock or feeding cattle is not whether they shall be grown on the range and fattened in Iowa , or whether Iowa shall grow her own cattle , but where can the feeder buy steers to the best advantage that can eat Iowa corn and grass without profanation . There are three classes of feeding steers grown in Iowa : First , the progeny of the special purpose cow , or the type of cow that is kept solely for the purpose of making the greatest allowance of butter . We may say that these cattle are not profitable feeders ; they are not built that way . They will probably gain as many pounds per bushel per month as any other , but they put it in places where it will not sell , and hence sell at a discount of about $ 2 . 00 per hundred as compared with the best type of feeding steers . Second , the progeny of the beef type of cattle kept for the sole purpose of growing calves , where the calf is allowed to...

Corn Flour Comine . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898

Corn Flour Comine . During the last few weeks corn flour has appeared not only in the South but in some of the Northern states , and seems likely to have something to do in limiting the consumption of wheat . The process seems to be a new one . The corn is first put through what is called a determinator which prunes out the germs and hulls . The kernels of corn are then crushed into grit and put through a pulverizing process which is said to make it as fine as wheat flour . We are told that thirty carloads are shipped to Southern markets where there is one carload of wheat flour , and that a great deal of It is now going to France and Germany where it is used in brewing beer , while the hulls and germs are shipped to Great Britain and the Continent for stock food . It is perhaps possible that this method may end in making cornbread an acceptable diet to the European laborer . The difficulty in introducing cornbread heretofore has been that it has been almost impossible to get corn o...
