The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
The Week President McKinley lias thrown the responsibility of settling our difficulties with Spain upon congress , and as this is written that body is attempting to bring some order out of the mental chaos into which it has been thrown by the message from the chief executive . The message itself was a disappointment , not so much because of its contents as for the reason that it contained so little of what the country had been led to expect was coming . The public had been assured that the president would deal with the entire question with a deflniteness and vigor that would leave no doubt as to the future : either Spain would succumb then and there , or we should be in the midst of war just as soon as the opposing forces could get into action . Consul-General Lee , his associates and aids and all other Americans were warned to get out of Cuba at once , and the message was held back several days in order that they might escape the inevitable assassination which would follow the pres...

Arbor Day [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
Arbor Day The governor of Illinois has issued a proclamation naming Friday , April 22 , as Arbor Day , and we hope the day will be generally observed , for it is a worthy custom thus to set apart a day in each year for the planting of trees . Trees should be set about schoolhouses and in public parks and private grounds and the children of the land taught their value and usefulness . In view of the-approach of tree planting time L . A . Goodman , secretary of the Missouri State Horticultural society , has made the following suggestions : Care should be taken in selecting trees that they he not too large , too old , too crooked or grown in too much shade . Beautiful , young , symmetrical and wellgrown trees should always be selected . It is a mistake to think that you must have large trees in order to get quick shade . Medium or even small- trees give shade as soon as large trees , and often sooner ; besides , they are always healthy and sound when they do grow up . The greatest care...
The Anti-Butterine Law [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
The Anti-Butterine Law Butterine manufacturers have won a temporary victory in their light against the Illinois law , passed at the late regular session of the legislature , which declares it illegal to use coloring matter in butter substitutes . Two judges out of three sitting en banc at Chicago , have declared the law to be unconstitutional . The third gave a dissenting opinion on that point , holding that the legislature did not exceed its power in enacting the law ; that the law was intended simply to prevent one article from being mistaken for another , and therefore came clearly within the province of the legislature to regulate . That is the meat of the whole matter . The butterine men desire to mislead the public , to sell for butter that which is only an imitation of butter , hence it is for the interest of the public that the manufacture and sale of such imitations should be so regulated as to protect , first , the purchaser , and , second , the manufacturer of honest good...
The Age of Specialism [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
The Age of Specialism In a letter from an old subscriber and friend of The Farmers Voice received the other day was contained the following characterization of an unfortunate neighbor : He always takes the disadvantage of things , instead of the advantage . Read that again , for it is as comprehensive as it is unique . How many acquaintances does that describe to the very letter : Always takes the disadvantage of things ! ¦¦ How many of us realize the growing significance of this fact and its increasing influence in determining success or failure of the individual and the prosperity or stagnation of the nation ? Time was when a man could take a plow and break the prairie sod and in the fall reap enough wheat to support himself and family until another harvest . That time is within the recollection of all who know the history of the Dakotas , of Kansas and Nebraska during the past fifteen years . To-day how different is the situation ! It requires the utmost ability to win success , ...
Where Prosperity Begins [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
Where Prosperity Begins A dispatch from Ottawa , Ont ., referring to the remarkable degree of prosperity which Canada is just now enjoying , says : The chief cause of this wonderful improvement in a vast country of little more than 5 , 000 , 000 people is attributable to the energy , enlightenment and progressiveness of the great agricultural classes of-the dominion . The splendid crops which rewarded the labors of the farmer and the fruit grower last season and the ready sale and good prices obtained by the cattle raisers of Ontario and the northwest for their stock have raised these classes to comparative affluence . That is what the prosperous farmer always means to the country in which he lives—he is the great advance agent of national prosperity ; and when he is not in that joyful state—woe to all other interests . The farmer by right insists that he is worthy of first consideration in national affairs , for upon him in large part depends the e condition of all his fellows . Wa...
War and Bonds [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
War and Bonds Along with the talk of war comes discussion as to the method in which its financial sinews may be supplied , and we are advised that Wall street is ready to subscribe millions for bonds which will return a fair rate of interest to the purchaser . But the people do not propose that Wall street shall have a monopoly on this brand of patriotism . If the money kings desire to furnish their quota , well and good ; but the common people stand behind their government and will insist that when the government goes into the bond-issuing business they be given an opportunity to take their share . At such a time as this what an immeasurable advantage to the government would be the postal savings bank system ! The little savings of the people , aggregating a vast sum , would be in hand ready for employment , and added to this would be a steady stream of deposits flowing into the . treasury and sustaining the government at a most vital point . In tWs democracy of ours we require the...

I ? Some Fallacies Concern- te II ingCorn J § fc } t . H . BBAGLBY , Slilejr , UL / - ^ iuiuiiu ^^ SOME very erroneous ideas exist among corn growers which , in view of recent experiments , seem almost ludicrous . For instance , it is generally believed and taught by our institute workers and agricultural writers , that unless the grain from the entire ear is planted , the season of pollenization will be shortened , and the result will be a large number of barren stalks and imperfect ears in the crop ; also , that if only the grains from the center of the ear are planted there will be a gradual deterioration of the variety . We have given this subject considerable attention and experiment for a number of years , and find the result to be quite the contrary . For eight years we have planted only the perfect grains on each ear , discarding at least one-third from each end of the ear of a variety of white corn , and have demonstrated to our own satisfaction that it is the only method t...
Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
Agriculture . Manuring With Sunshine The fertilizing power of summer sunshine is not fully appreciated by farmers . Sunlight striking a bare or fallow field does not add to its productiveness , neither does it improve the quality of stable manure exposed to its direct rays . Yet the sun is the original source of all terrestrial energy , of whatsoever kind . It is generally admitted that the food which growing plants get from what are called arable soils is usually lacking in three elements . These three elements are potash , phosphoric acid and nitrogen . The first two exist in nature only as . solids or liquids . Nitrogen exists in inexhaustible quantities as a gas in the air we breathe . Potash and phosphates we must dig out of the rocks or buy of those who dig them . Nitrogen exists all about us , and we only need to set traps to catch it . We can buy potash and phosphoric acid for from 4 to 5 cents a pound . For nitrogen in commercial fertilizer we have to pay from 15 to IS cent...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 16 April 1898
Garden and Orchard Spraying ¦ The advent of the Colorado potato beetle started a new line of work among horticulturists which has been greatly expanded and improved within a few years ; Spraying has come to be , as Roland Morrill says , the high art of horticulture and absolutely necessary to best results . Spraying is now used not only to combat insect enemies but to destroy fungous diseases of almost every kind . From a simple solution of Paris green with will * to kill codlin moth and curculio we tliave formulas with which to destroy rust , blight and other similar diseases due tp the action of very minute . plants . Black kn ot and peach yellows are about the only serious enemies of the horticulturist which have not been met by some spraying solution to compass their destruction . Pear blight is not treated with uniform success , but many things are being tried for it with some hope of finding the one that is sure death to the disease . It is mot too early to begin to prepare fo...

Davenport , Director ot the Illinois Experiment station , and Professor of Animal Husbandry and Deanol the Agricultural College of the University of Illinois , Oxb &amp; na , has become a regular editorial contributor to this department . All questions relating to Animal Husbandry , save those belonging to the Veterinary department will bo answered by Prof . Davenport , Feeding the Calves The entire future of the animal usually depends on its first summer . This is true of all farm stock and especially so of the calves . Unless they can be made to make a good growth the first summer they will never make as good animals as they might and should , for every man should try to do the best he possibly can with his stock and crops . The new-born calf should be allowed to get his first feed from his dam s udder , as the accumulated milk in that organ is in just the proper condition for the first few days . After about three days the milk assumes its natural...
