American Horses in Germany . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
American Horses in Germany . And the Germans , it is stated , are placing an embargo on American horses on the ground that they are subject to influenza . There can be no good reason for this aside from a disposition to prevent imports . The duration of the disease known as influenza is about two weeks . The horse affected with it would either die or get well before it crossed the ocean . Diseases of this kind are more common in Europe than this country and if it were Introduced it would be nothing new . The reason for this discrimination lies in the fact that while in 1893 our shipments were valued at $ 79 , 950 , in 1897 they were valued at $ 822 , 250 . Our shipments to all European countries in 1893 were of the value of $ 718 , 607 ; in 1897 , $ 4 , 769 , 265 .

Pedigree Seed Potatoes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Pedigree Seed Potatoes . We pi esent herewith a cnt of a new potato originated by onr advertising patron , Harry N . Hammond , of Decatur , Mich ,, the seed potato specialist , whose ad . has been appearing rega1 trly in these columns . This gentleman is devoting the major portion of his time to the growing of seed potatoes in a commercial way on an extended scale , under conditions calculated to | . reduce the best possible results . The Michigan New Muck Land Seed Potatoes are remarkable f . r their earliness , size , runners , freedom from , and ability to resist disease , and their great pro ductiveneas . It is for this reason that they are so frequently spoken of as Pedigree Seed Potatoes . They are now being snipped to every secIon * of the country where they sustain their former good reputation for the qualities enumerated above . Mr Hammond also grows a fall line of vegetable , flower and f arm seeds on which he makes some very special offers for introduction , as will be no...
Kidney and Uric Acid Troubles Quickly Cured . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Kidney and Uric Acid Troubles Quickly Cured . You May Have a Sample Bottle of the Great Discovery , Dr Kilmer s Swamp-Root Sent Free by Mall . Men and women doctor their troubles so often without benefit , that they get discouraged and skeptical . In most suchcase . serious mistakes are made in doctoring and in not knowing what our trouble is or what makes us sL-k . The unmistakable evidences ot kidney trouble are pain or dull ache in the back , too frequent desire to pass v . ater , scanty supply , smarting irritation . As kidney disease advances the face looks sallow or pale , puffs or dark circles under the eyes , the feet swell and sometimes the heart beats badly . Should further evidence be needed to find out the cause of tickness , then set urine tside for twenty-four hours ; if there is a sediment or settling it is al ° o conwncing proof that our kidneys and bladder need doctoring . A fact often overlooked , is that women suffer as much from kidney and bladder trouble as men ...
Early Oats . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Early Oats . Mr . Soren Skeie , of Hardin county . Iowa , writes us as follows : I would like to know something more about the Early Champion oats , as I am anxious to get some kind of oats for seed that will stand up well , as I have rather low , rich land . There are a few fanners around here that have a kind of early oats called AVhite Superior Scotch and another called Fourth of July oats . Does Wallaces Farmer know anything about these varieties * . Would they be just as good as the Early Champion to seed down with . We publish the above , which is asked only for private information , because it touches on a matter of very general interest . One of the great difficulties that the farmer has to meet iu Iowa , and especially on the richer lands , is to secure a variety of oats that will stand up and yield well on rich lands in a good growing season . We have lost several crops of oats from lodging about the 4 th of July , and more than once it would have been better for us to hav...
Exports of Manufactured Arti -cles . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Exports of Manufactured Articles . Up to within the last few years America has paid her foreign indebtedness mainly by * he export of agricultural products , howls , stocks , and mortgages , or In cash . Within the last two or three years we have been exporting manufactured products to a much greater extent than ever before , and we believe that this proportion will Increase rapidly from _ his time onward without much regard to tariffs . Four years ago they were seHIing cotton goods of the lower grades in the leading cities of the Old World at lower prices than they could be produced __ that country of low interest and low wages . We are now selling steel products to almost every country In Europe at lower rates than they can be produced at home . We are furnishing locomotives to almost every country in the world , and the great underground electric railway of Jjondon purchases its material in this country at better rates than at any point In Europe . The same is true hi other lines...
Alin'te , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Alinte , The Prussian Department of Agriculture has distributed among German exjperiment stations a circular of Information regarding the discovery by Mr . Caron , in Ellenba _ h ( Hessen ) of a new form of bacteria isolated from meadow soil and submitted to pure cultivation . When distributed In soil these bacteria increase in number with remarkable rapidity and exert upon cultivated as well as wild grasses an influence similar to that of the nitro-gen-bacteria of the leguminous plants , that is , a great increase in the yield per acre . Caron found that both in laboratory experiments and in the open fields was the proportion of yields between the common-soil and inoculated plots 140 to 100 ; that is , when soil was treated with the bacteria In question , the yield was increased by 40 per cent . The new bacteria do not form roottubers in the plants that they inhaJbit , such as we know from peas or clover ; they occur scantily in ordinary soil , but grow well therein . The chemical ...
Who Breeds Galloways ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Who Breeds Galloways ? A reader of Wallaces Farmer writes : Why do not the breeders of Galloway cattle advertise them so those who want to buy will know where to find breeding stock . I think it would pay some of the breeders to advertise . The publishers of Wallaces Farmer agree with this . The Galloways are well adapted to many localities where the Farmer circulates . Fremont S . Gibson , member of the house of representatives , from Plymouth county , writes us that he was not in Des Moines at the time the first vote was taken on the pooling resolutions . If Mr . Gibson had written us earlier his absence would have been noticed in our last issue . We would not willingly do an injustice to any member .
Will They Have to Pay for It ? [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Will They Have to Pay for It ? One of our subscribers writes us as follows : Some of the subscribers to Wallaces Farmer have the paper with which you were formerly cbnnected sent to them . They did not send for it , but still it comes . Some of them have asked me if they can be made to pay for the paper . Please advise your subscriber In this matter . No man is under any obligations , whatever , to pay for a paper that is sent to him unsolicited . He should pay no attention , whatever , to the so-called rulings that have been published for twenty years past , intimating that is a farmer takes the paper out of the office he thereby is placed under obligations to pay for the same . This is one of the grossly dishonest methods adopted by papers that have not been able to secure a circulation or to maintain it The right thing to do is to refuse to take the paper out of the office and so notify the postmaster , and if the postmaster still continues to put it in the farmer s box or to del...
Grass Seed Per Acre . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Grass Seed Per Acre . A new subscriber from Blanchard , Iowa , writes : I have been taking your paper for the last two months and looking for something that would enlighten me as to the amount of grass seed I should sow per acre . I wish to sow fifty acres to timothy and clover for pasture . Would you recommend white clover , and what amount of each per acre ? Please answer through your paper for my benefit and that of many others . We are having an unusual number of Inquiries of this character in the last two months , owing to the thousands of new subscribers that are now reading Wallaces Farmer for the first time . We are , therefore , compelled on the grass question to go back to first principles and again teach many things with which our older readers are almost as familiar as they are with their a , b , c . The amount of grass seed our correspondent should sow depends on the use he makes of his pasture . If he intends it as a permanent pasture , the sowing should be quite diffe...

Timothy and Clover on High Land . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Timothy and Clover on High Land . A correspondent form Emmet county , Iowa , wishes us to teach him how to get clover to grow in his section . He states that he has lived on his farm eleven years and has not succeeded In securing a good stand yet He once sowed thirty acres with oats on corn stalks , pulverized them , and then sowed timothy and clover and covered them with a slanting-toothed harrow . The timothy grew , but not the clover . The next spring he sowed clover by hand while it was raining hard , but very little of it grew . He states further that on a small piece which he intended to take in as a pasture , he sowed oats , barley , rye , timothy , and clover and allowed the cattle to eat it off , and there he got clover but that not much remains now . We have repeatedly advised on all lands in northwestern Iowa that clover should be covered the same depth as oats or spring wheat We are not surprised at the experience of our correspondent Both the instances he gives furnish ...
Oil Meal For Cattle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Oil Meal For Cattle . A subscriber from Cottonville , Iowa , writes : If you were feeding cattle would you prefer to feed oil meal the last four or five weeks ? If so , how much would you give per head per day , and what benefit would be derived from feeding it ? Also , do you regard shelled corn as better to finish with than corn on the cob ? Answering the first question , we wpuid say that we would finish really first-class cattle with oil meal , but would not finish cattle of the ordinary grade with oil meal at present prices of corn , cattle , and oil meal . If we had plenty of first-class clover hay , we do not know that we would feed oil meal at all at present prices . The benefit in feeding oil meal to cattle for the last five or six weeks is twofold . First , it enables us to get more feed into them . Our experience is that cattle will eat as much as three pounds per head per day and eat as much corn as they did prior to beginning with the oil meal . They will also digest It...
Tame Grasses in a Peaty Slough . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Tame Grasses in a Peaty Slough . A correspondent from Emmet county , Iowa , writes us that he has bought a farm which contains about thirty acres of genuine peat slough , that he did not dare to burn the grass off in the fall for fear of setting fire to it and wishes to know how he can secure a stand of tame grasses . He also states that a neighbor of his with similar land has had success In seeding a ¦¦¦¦ slough of r this kind ¦¦ , after . a prairie fire had cleaned the rubbish off , with clover , timothy , blue grass , and red top , but that the red top is likely to drive out the other grasses . He states that he has never seen a case of this kind discussed in the Farmer and asks for advice . We have had no experience with peat sloughs , our farms being too far south for their development The safest thing to do , in our judgment , is to burn the rubbish off some time next month , and then seed with alsike clover and timothy at the rate of five pounds of the former and seven or eig...
They All Read It . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
They All Read It . While Wallaces Farmer is mainly a farm paper , we notice that it is gradually extending its circulation among all classes . For example , an Ohio banker writes as follows : I have been reading your paper for about six months . I also read the , but I must say that your paper is much better . Perhaps you wonder why a banker reads these papers ? I am more of a farmer than a banker . I was reared on a farm until I was twenty-one , have owned land for nearly forty years , own a number of farms now , was engaged in the grain and milling business for thirty-five years , my dealings have been with farmers , and our conversation has been largely about farming . I like to own land . We have had a heavy depreciation in lands in the last five years but it is now coming up again , and farmers are doing much better . We had about 1 , 400 , 000 bushels of wheat last year in our county , and the price realized was from eighty-five to ninety cents . The number of men of the above...
The Farmer in Congress . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
The Farmer in Congress . The present Congress is showing a surprising amount of niggardliness in appropriations to the Department of Agriculture , giving but $ 130 , 000 more now that they have a secretary that has the entire confidence of the people and the capacity to handle the appropriation wisely , than it did two years ago when we had a secretary who did not seem to believe in the Department and who seemed to allow the different divisions to run things to suit themselves . It is certainly to be hoped that before the bill passes the Senate , Secretary Wilson will have all the money appropriated that he can use with profit to the farmers . We never expected the secretary to be a cheap man In the sense of economizing where economy was extravagance . He knows where to use the money where it will benefit the farmers as no other man does . If members of Congress wish to please the farmers and cure them of their disgust with their free seed grab , they will not quibble at any enlarge...
