The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
The Week The clarion of war has sounded and soon must begin a contest which shall forever end Spain s rule upon the Western hemisphere . The joint resolution , passed after all the tactics of obstruction had been exhausted by the senate , meets with universal approval and has been incorporated in the presidents ultimatum to Spain ; is the ultimatum , in fact , and one which leaves that country no alternative . It must surrender Cuba or be driven out . That it will not go peacefully is certain ; that Spain cannot long maintain the unequal conflict seems quite as sure , although it is not safe to predicate too great confidence upon that opinion . The great strength , the vast productive power , the magnificent credit of our own country is in striking contrast to the weak and impoverished nation which stands against us , yet the Spaniards are inured to war and are not a people to surrender until every resource has failed and they are Anally driven from the field . Added to our material...
Corn as Human Pood [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
Corn as Human Pood In a recent article Henry Stewart , while urging the increased production of corn , declares against exporting it , saying that our farmers should convert it into higher products—meat , poultry , eggs , . butter and cheese . To export raw materials when they may be advanced a step by the exercise of labor or by changing them into any kind of manufactured products , he says , is not only an indication of the Want of good business sense , but of a lower degree of civilization and intelligence , unless , as in our own case with cotton , we have a monopoly of the product and sell only our surplus , without any risk of competition from other nations . No one will deny Mr . Stewart s contention ; but that he should exclude corn from the latter classification seems strange . We certainly have as complete a monopoly of corn ( maize ) as we have of cotton , and it is only our surplus we may sell . Corn is susceptible to higher food uses than that of mere animal food . It m...
Go-operation in Minnesota [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
Go-operation in Minnesota What the farmers of the country may do who join hands for mutual benefit is suggested by the results accomplished in this direction during the past few years in the state of Minnesota , concerning which the Philadelphia Record says : According to official returns the farmers of Minnesota have $ 150 , 000 , 000 invested in dairies , and the receipts last year were sufficient to cover all the expenses of farming . The receipts for the year amounted to $ 13 , 000 , 000 , and the 250 , 000 Minnesota cows gave 500 , 000 , 000 pounds of milk . In 1897 the states of Iowa , Wisconsin and Minnesota exported butter and cheese amounting in value to $ 55 , 000 , 000 . More than a quarter of this sum went to Minnesota , although previous to 1890 the farmers of this state did not take a great interest in the method of dairy co-operation . The first co-operative dairy north of Iowa was established in Minnesota in 1891 , and for its operation $ 3 , 000 was subscribed . The...
The Unpopular Branch [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
The Unpopular Branch Monday of last week the president s message was given to congress . Wednesday the lower house of congress reported and adopted resolution s in accordance with the president s suggestions and the best judgment of the people . Not until a late hour Saturday did the senate reach a conclusion , and the resolutions passed by that body were in direct opposition to the popular will . The senate may truly be said to be the unpopular branch of congress . The fact of the matter is , the manner of choosing senators has resulted in making that body an aggregation of rich nobodys , who neither know what statesmanship means nor care for the public s desire . Many of them paid so much in cold cash for their seats and so consider that they own them . There are exceptions to this rule , but they do not constitute a large enough proportion of the membership to insure the people against such exhibitions as the world has been compelled to witness during the past ten days . The peop...

A . Bowditeh read the following paper fertilizers are necessary , and points out to more favored localities how the fertility of the land may be maintained in its original fertility by a proper ^ course of farming : . There is perhaps no subject of more importance to the progressive farmer than soil fertility . To produce good and paying crops and at the same time maintain or increase the fertility of the soil is properly called good farming . The fertility of the soil would remain practically unchanged , provided all the ingredients removed from the soil in the various crops were carefully restored to it . With this in mind we very naturally divide farming methods into three classes , viz .: Those who limit the live stock kept upon , the farm sufficient only to the needs of food and la...
Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
Agriculture . Bugs to Kill Bugs Those who think the government of the United States is not doing very much in the interests of agriculture shoujd have an opportunity to visit the laboratories of a few of our experiment stations and those of the agricultural department at Washington , where some remarkable bugs are being hatched and reared at present by experts of the government bureau of entomology . This kind of scientific work has a very useful purpose in view , notwithstanding the fact that the species selected for breeding are the most pestiferous that can be found . On the shelves and on the floor are glass jars and boxes with glass ; sides containing . great variety of plants , fruits , dried-up vegetables and pieces of branches or roots . The purpose for which injurious insects are bred in this hatchery is twofold . In the first place it is desired to study their history , because knowledge on this subject yields pointers as to the best methods of attacking them . Particularl...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
Garden and Orchard Peach Growing i Prof . H . J . Waters of the Missouri Experiment station has given the following advice concerning peach growing : With the present impetus to peach growing , a great many people are writing to the station for informatiqn upon that subject . We have ascertained that the best and most profitable varieties for the Missouri orchardist to cultivate are the following : Mountain Rose , Relvos , Favorite Champion , Family Favorite , Elberta , Mrs . Britt , Old Mixon , both free and cling , Wheatland , Gaylord and Piquetts . High , dry land , affording both soil and air drainage , is the best for tliese varieties , red soil with loose and gravelly subsoil is preferred ; a hard or heavy wet soil should be avoided . The planting should be done in the spring ,- just before growth begins or when the buds are bursting , giving each tree one square rod of space . The amateur peach-grower is more apt to plant too deep than too shallow . One-year-old trees are pre...

Live Stock and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 23 April 1898
Live Stock and Dairy Treating Hog Cholera It is an acknowledged fact that , there has not yet been found any cure for hog cholera , nor even a remedy that acts ¦ with any degree of certainty at all times . This is true of Asiatic cholera , which has In years past So sorely afflicted the human race . It is also true that hog cholera may be rendered very much less effective by using proper methods , as Asiatic cholera has been prevented from spreading in civilized countries of late years by proper sanitation . The old theory that a hog naturally loves mud and filth has been exploded . The wild hog is a cleanly animal , as far as its habits are concerned . If it wallows in the mire during the hot weather it is to keep cool and prevent flies from inflicting tortures on it , and the mud it seeks is clean mud instead of being its own filth . When confined to a filthy pen it has no choice in seeking sleeping quarters or a place to wallow in , and does the best it can , as the prisoners wit...
