Tile Drainage . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Tile Drainage . The Humboldt County Republican reports as follows a paper read before the farmers institute of that county , on the subject of Tile Drainage : He said that drained land increased the season of growing crops fully two weeks and in some instances more . That of ten , a two weeks or more in a crop made it valuable , and at other times more . He thought on close ex Alf * . * - ¦ The Property of N . E . Mosher , Sallsbuni , Mo . P _ ft _ * g < vrNTV 2-sr ^ 4 _ r __^ -4 _ r _ Vr ^ V 2 ^_ W _ amination that fully one-third of all the drainage done in Webster county was of no value . One of the worst features in laying tile was in not having a proper outlet . All outlets should be clear so that the water can flow away without clogging . Never allow the water to be below the surface , and stop the flow of water . Then , again , all outlets should have a door with hinges at the top so as to swing open when water is flowing and shut when it ceases . This will keep ou...

Wheat in Northern Iowa . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Wheat in Northern Iowa . At the Humboldt County Institute Col . J . J . Smart , who has the reputation of being one of the most successful wheat raisers in that county , said that he sowed wheat as a nurse crop for clover and timothy , as oats grew too rank on his lands and smothered out the young plants . He preferred fall plowing and sowed in spring as soon as the ground got dry enough to work well . A perfect seed bed was first procured .- He used a drill and as soon as the grain was sown took a broadcast seeder and scattered over the ground 100 pounds of salt to the acre , or a barrel to three acres . When asked what it was sown for , replied that it hastened ripening and added to stiffness of the straw , or it made a stronger , healthier straw which gave strength to the berry and added to the yield . It also had a tendency to drive away insects that would otnerwlse prey on the young plants .

Thick vs . Thin Oats . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Thick vs . Thin Oats . Mr . Soren Skeie , in remitting a club of nine new subscribers , writes : WU 1 oats that are sown thick stand up better than when sown thin on rich land ? We think not , but after all much depends on circumstances . Oats that are sown thin may stool out and become thick , while oats thickly sown may not stool . The seasons have much to do with it As a rule , oats that stand very thick at the critical time are more likely to lodge than those of a thinner stand .

The California Wheat Crop . A dispatch from San Francisco . under date of February 4 th states that that state is now suffering very seriously from drouth and that if the rains do not come in three weeks the wheat will not be one-fourth of a crop . So severe is the drouth that the sheep men are killing the lambs , as they can not afford to buy feed . All this has an Important bearing on the prices of wheat during the next summer .

A Foreign Yearbook , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

A Foreign Yearbook , We are in receipt of the Farming World Yearbook published at Edinburgh , Scotland , which , while mainly Interesting to English farmers , eontains much that is interesting to onr own p _ op _ e . One of the surprising things Is the initial article giving the results of recent experiments , on a large number of farms , in different parts of Scotland , under tbe auspices of the Experiment Station , for the purpose of determining the value of manures of various kinds on the oats crop . The surprising feature of it to American farmers will be that without exception commercial fertilizers paid a profit of from ? 1 . 25 to $ 6 . 00 ppr acre , this being the average of from ten to fifteen farms for four years . A still more remarkable thing \ i Chat these manures were mainly nitrogen 1 n some of its various forms . The result was not only a greater uniformity of yield , but an earlier harvest , an Improved quality of grain , the better destruction of the weeds , and ea...

An Agricultural Education . Among onr readers there are thousands of boys who are beginning to think seriously as is what shall be their future calling In life . Many of them have settled down to work on the farm , and we approve their cho . ee . but we would Hike to see them fitted for this work not only by being familiar with the mechanical operations of the farm , the maxims of farmers , the experience of their fathers and neighbors , and the Information they can derive from Wallaces Farmer , but would like to see them have in addition the advantages of some agricultural education at the agricultural collects 1 n the various states in which they reside . The next century win be onr » where success will depend on intelligent , well directed effort . It will come to the man who knows the reasons for doing things as well as the methods of doing them . It will be the skilled hand guided by the active brain that will win the rewards of lnbor . hence the more education the farm boy has...

Ererotism . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Ererotism . We see 1 t stated In theflaiily papers thnf two herds of cattle In Woodbury county . Iowa , have been affected with ergotism and destroyed . Cases of this kind appear In some parts of the West every winter . The disease is wholly due to carelessness or to a lack of knowledge that is surprising in these days when a first-class agricultural paper can be had for one dollar . Ergotism is the result of feeding cattle on grasses , tilie seeds of which have been ergotized . The mast familiar form of ergot Is spurred rye . or . as it Is some times called . Wasted rye . The most commin form , however . Is the ergot of wild rve . and this is . in fact , about the only dangerous form . Blue grass and red top ergotize In certain seasons , but these being pasture grasses and the seeds not being consumed by cattle , no damage results . Timothy ergotizes but to a very slight extent , hence we have never heard of cattle being affected with ergot from feeding on timothy hav . although th...

Feeding Charges at the Stock Yards . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Feeding Charges at the Stock Yards . Mr . C . Bean , of Jasper County , Iowa , writes as follows : Much has been said lately in your and other farm journals about the excessive charges for feed at the Union Stock ards at Chicago . In justice to the Stock Yard Company I wish to say that this charge is not made for profit to the company but to keep the stock moving and prevent the shippers from using the yard for feeding purposes when the market is going the wrong way . Land worth $ 5 , 000 per acre is too high priced to be used for feeding purposes , hence the necessity of restriction In some form , and this is considered the best and most practical method . There is another argument In favor of these charges by the Yard Company , but this is sufficient to sweep away a great deal of the prejudice in farmers minds against the corporation named . No farmer asks that the prices for feed at the Stock Yards should be on a level with prices in the general market . The complaint is that the...

Short-horn and Red Poll Cat -tle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Short-horn and Red Poll Cattle . A correspondent from Minnesota asks us whether there is any difference between the Short-horn and Red Poll cattle , and if so , what it is . The two breeds are entirely distinct , the one originating in the Teeswater valley , one of the most fertile In England , and the other In the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk where the land in chalky and thin and will not support a Short-horn . Following the law of environment these breeds will in time approximate on our more fertile soils and richer grasses until in fifty years from now it may be difficult to tell a red Short-horn from a Red Poll except by the horns . There is a tendency , which we regret to see , to breed the Red Polls on beef lines for the range trade and thus breed out the excellent dairy qualities which are Inherent in this breed . The Short-horns have already suffered in the same direction and for the same cause .

Now Raise Good Horses . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Now Raise Good Horses . Every other line of stock farming , save of horses , is on a fairly good basis . Farmers are convinced that there is money in growing good cattle , good hogs , and good sheep , and will be for some years to come . In all these lines it is only the best that pays . They are beginning to understand that , notwithstanding all that has been said about the horseless age , the passing of the horse , and all that kind of newspaper rot , there will be good money and plenty of it in good draft horses , coach horses , and saddle horses for a great number of years to come , and they are , or ought to be , convinced that there will be no profit in the inferior sort of horse such as can be raised on the plains at the minimum of cost and that will answer the purposes of streeters , hacks , plugs , livery , and all that sort We urge farmers , as they respect their own pocketbooks and the comfort of their homes , not to grow this sort of stuff under any circumstnces . We can...

Reduction in State Expenses . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898

Reduction in State Expenses . • It is quite evident within the last few months that the thought of the people of Iowa has turned In the direction of economy and the reduction of state expenses . The revenue bill of the - * special session In Its attempt to secure the listing of property which has hitherto escaped taxation was one of the first active manifestations of his determination . We hope this new law will reach the spot , but we confess we have littte faith in it . Why we have repeatedly said and prefer to say nothing more until the experiment is made . Another decided manifestation of this determination of the people to economize is seen in the report of the special committee to examine and report on the condition of the state institutions . The evidence submitted by this committee is of such a character that something must be done , and that something must reach the sore spot or there will manifestly be trouble for somebody before another year . The effort to let the printi...
