Special Notice . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Special Notice . Some of our readers seem to have the impression that the date for receiving subscriptions at our club rate Is past This is a mistake . Everyone will please take notice that the club rate of fifty cents In clubs of five or more holds good until notice is given in the paper of its withdrawal . This also applies to the premiums offered for clubs . All who have sent five or more subscriptions can add single subscriptions at any time at the club rate . In this connection our club raisers will please remember that on April 1 we give a cash premium of $ 25 . 00 to the person who has sent in the largest list up to that time , and proportionate premiums for the second , third and fourth largest lists . There la time for some one to earn one of these premiums with very little work .
Two Cent Railroad Fare . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Two Cent Railroad Fare . We took the opportunity on Monday evening to listen to the pleading , before the joint railroad committees of both houses of the Iowa Legislature , of the Iowa Traveling Mens Association in behalf of a straight two cent thousand mile book . About forty members of the Legislature were present and the meeting was of very great interest throughout The committee said that the railroads were selling mileage books at two cents , but they surrounded them with many restrictions that were unjust , that the object of the Association is to secure the removal of these restrictions and the adoption of a rate of 120 . 00 per thousand miles ; good not merely for traveling men , but for all classes who travel much on the roads . The main speech of the evening was made by Ex-Gov . Frank T . Campbell . Speaking in behalf of ten thousand members of the Traveling Mens Association , he congratulated the State on the prosperous condition of the railroads , and the fact that but t...

The Register and Freight Rates . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
The Register and Freight Rates . At last , after years of prodding , we have forced from the Register a statement of what it would have done in order to secure the lowest possible interstate freight rates for all Iowa , and what is It ? Listen . The Iowa Legislature can pass a joint resolution requesting every senator and representative in Congress to vote for a law that will give all Iowa points proportionate interstate freight rates with all other states whose products are hauled through Iowa to the markets of the world . the resolution passed Suppose were , what would result ? Nothing . Suppose such a law were enacted by the national Congress , what would be the rate on cattle from Des Moines to Chicago ? If the rate from Huntington , Oregon , were $ 200 per car , the rate from Omaha ? 50 , and from Kansas City | 50 , would the rate from Des Moines be proportioned according to the mileage from Huntington , or from Omaha or Kansas City ? Would the rate on com be a mileage proporti...

Jackson and Jones County In -stitutes . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Jackson and Jones County Institutes . We had the pleasure last week of attending the institutes held in Jackson and Jones counties . The institute of Jackson county was not very largely attended on account of the deep snow and the drifted condition of the roads . The meetings , however , was of great interest from beginning to end on the day we attended and we understand was better attended and with greater interest on the day following , when Elmer Reeves , the well known young orchardist of Waverly , acted as instructor . The Jones county institute was largely attended by representative farmers of that county , as might be expected in a county where there has been an institute every year for the last twenty years and where the founders of the institute are now turning it over to their sons worthy to succeed them . We have not time nor space to give even a condensed report of the proceedings . The man who travels over these counties even in midwinter will have an object lesson on t...
Do gs and Sheep . should not [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Do gs and Sheep . should not The present Legislature adjourn without re-enacting the law dropped out by the extra session , enabling the farmers to secure pay for sheep killed by dogs from the proceeds of the dog tax . The sheep industry Is growing very rapidly in the state and will continue to grow . The dropping out of this section was a blow to the industry that did not come with very good grace . The prosperity of Iowa largely depends upon the management of this industry , and we do not know of any better service that the Legislature can give to the people with so little trouble as the re-enact-ment of the former law .
The Lance-Leafed Thistle . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
The Lance-Leafed Thistle . We hope before the Legislature adjourns that they will re-enact the law protecting thrifty and careful farmers against the lance-leafed thistle , or rather against the careless and unthrifty fellows that allow this pest to grow and seed the farms of their thrifty neighbors . The farmers are just beginning to understand the law , and in due time it would have been reasonably well enforced . What is the real motive for repealing a law of this character ? Printer s Ink tells about an edition of the Fireside Companion of 25 , 000 , 000 distributed free as sample copies . This is a fine illustration of the way the Post Office Department is robbed of its revenue . It receives a cent a pound for distributing these all over the United States , and it costs them seven or eight cents per pound . There are not 25 , 000 , 000 families in the United States , counting those the heads of which can not read , paupers , and Indians not taxed , and yet this circulation is g...
Sheep Questions . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Sheep Questions . Mr . E . W . Pilgrim , of Winneshiek County , Iowa , is a beginner in the sheep business , has 72 ewes and lambs coming in February , and wishes to know whether it is best to castrate and dock now or later , what Is the period of gestation In ewes , and whether it is safe to allow the buck to remain with the flock . We would castrate and dock at any time after the lambs are a week or two old , choosing a clear , mild day . The sooner these operations are performed after the lamb gets rightly started the better . The period of gestation in ewes is about 150 days We have made it a custom to allow the bucks to run with the flock , having four of them on our own farm , until the nights begin to get cool , when they snould be separated . Mr . Pilgrim also wishes a cut show ing how to make a wool box with which to tie fleeces when shearing time comes , as he wishes to be prepared . We will furnish a cut in the near future .
Cut on Hock Joint—Sore Mouth . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Cut on Hock Joint—Sore Mouth . Xo W __ LAOTS * FAB-EZOU W . M , Promise City , la , writes : I have a horse which was cut in the front of the hock joint It healed up and a lump has formed . It there anything to do for it ? Also have a horse with a sore mouth which is calloused m the corners . What can I do for it ? Please answer through the calumns of your paper . In replying to the above I will say that the scar tissue arising as a result of the cut is never entirely absorbed . Extensive wounds in the region of different joints gives rise to a considerable amount of this scar tissue or gristle , as it is commonly called . After the complete healing of the wound the absorption of this tissue goes on slowly until a considerable part of the enlargement disappears . When the amount of thickening is very great , permanent enlargement is the result In the way of treatment very little can be done to hasten the absorption of the inflammatory thickenings . In a few cases a surgical operatio...

A More Hopeful View . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
A More Hopeful View . ID W AI __ . O _» - - ___—» Marked ability , of which the articles of Mr . Camp are ample evidence and results accomplished against such obstinate obstacles as he tells us , fills one with respect and admiration ; and advice , inspired by such ripe age and rich experiences , is certainly entitled to every respect For my own part , I fain would have a personal acquaintance . Nevertheless , with some points in his philosophy of success , as set forth in various issues of the armer , especially those of Jan . 14 th and Feb . 4 th , I must radically differ . He says *** one half *** are servants to the rest They begin with nothing and end with nothing ; it cant be helped . As a matter of fact they are not to be blamed for they fill just the place they were intended to fill . If this is a correct hypothesis , effort is foolish , foresight is a myth , progress is imaginary . Civilization must be a soil of spontaneous combustion generated by outside agencies . Man , t...
Butter-Making on the Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Butter-Making on the Farm . to w _ i ___ mr r . ___ aat The farmer who owns a few good cows , to which he gives the best of care and attention , and who is fortunate enough to have a wife who has learned the knack of making first-class butter , cannot fail to see that for himself and family at least one way is open to success . Good butter has always been , and I suppose always will be , in good demand , at a reasonably good price . Yet , notwithstanding this fact , a great many people miserably fail in the attempt to make it , and for this reason very much inferior butter is placed upon the market at a loss rather than a profit If any one would like to have the proof of this statement , he can get it by simply taking a peep into the rear end of a country store , where he is most sure to find a considerable amount of it , streaked and mottled in various shades ; some of which is doubtless superior in strength to the unskilled person who made it One feels pity for those who make such...
Object Lessons . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Object Lessons . Ed . Wallaces Farmer : I read with interest what Mr . Green writes on Object Lessons In the Farmer of the 11 th Inst which may be all right as far as it goes , but he dont quite go far enough to hit my case . I own the land for a mile on the north side of a much traveled road ; the road is kept in good shape for travel . I mow the weeds in the road and along the fence row , but on the south side of the road is a willow hedge from twenty to thirty feet . high , and during a winter like this with so much snow , our roads have been very bad all winter because the willow hedge has held the snow in the road . Is it right to put me to the Inconvenience of keeping my fences open for the public , when , if those willows were out of the way there would be no trouble ? And the summer season is nearly as bad on account of the road being shaded by the willows . Can anything be done to get rid of these willows , if so , what is it ? J E , MKRBNESS . Carroll County , la .
A Tilting Manger . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
A Tilting Manger . The accompanying illustration shows a tilting manger , or feed box , as used in the barns of the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station . It is made as follows : End pieces are made 38 inches long , 4 inches wide at one end and two feet wide at the other . They taper alike on both sides . A cleat across , near the top , as shown in the figure , is nailed on the side which is to be within the box . The bottom is 2 x 8 inches , as long as the manger is desired , and chamfered on the edges to match the taper of the end pieces . It is nailed in at a height to just fill the ends and catch the sides with a good fit when they are nailed on . Under the bottom a 2 x 4 piece should be nailed to the ends , and holes bored through end and block inside to firmly hold the pin of wood or iron which passes through the adjacent stud . It is on these pins at each end , or a rod , or waterpipe long enough to pass through both ends that the box rests to tilt from side to side...
Roof Cement . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 4 March 1898
Roof Cement . A correspondent sends us the following recipe for cement that will adhere to both wood and brick around a chimney : Common Louisville or Portland cement , mixed with linseed oil until very thick and ropy , poured in the opening by the side of the flue , and overlaid on the shingles and side of the flue , makes a good cement for that purpose . That is my experience .
