The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
The Week History is making rapidly these days , and the fastmoving scenes upon the stage of action , kaleidoscopic as they are , have to do with the weal or woe of millions . The week has witnessed the actual beginning of hostilities between the United States and the kingdom of Spain , and the people of both countries , settling back from the first hot impulse o £ war , find themselves facing war s grim and horrid front , easy enough to begin , but to stop—who may say when or how , or under what circumstances and conditions ? That Spain is playing a waiting game is apparent . Her motive is quite as easy to comprehend . To play upon European fears of American aggression , to insist that every nation in Europe is directly interested with her in opposing the Monroe doctrine , to lead this country into some indiscretion which may bring another power to Spain s aid—this is the manifest policy of Spain . Cuba is no longer the issue ; the Pearl of the Antilles already is lost to the dons ,...

The Declaration of War [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
The Declaration of War When tricky Spain , acting in the haste of a boy seeking to get a joke on his comrade , sent General Stewart Woodford , United States minister to Spain , his passports , thereby severing all diplomatic relations and making it impossible for him to present the ultimatum of the president , that act virtually declared that war existed between this government and the kingdom of young Alfonso , was the actual beginning of hostilities , and cancelled our obligations to wait until Saturday noon for a formal answer . The result was that before the hour of noon of Saturday Spanish craft to the value of hundreds of thousands of dollars already had been captured , and the American warships were before Havana and the harbors along the north coast of Cuba . But to the end that the definition of the international status of the United States as a belligerent p : iwer may be made known , and the assertion of all rights and the maintenance of all its duties in the conduct of a...
Secretary Day [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Secretary Day John M . Palmer , then a general in the volunteer service , one day called upon President Lincoln in the white house . The president was in the barber s chair , his face covered with lather . Abe , said the general , who was walking about the room , I never thought this country would go to a one-horse town and take out of it a one-horse lawyer for president . President Lincoln brushed the barber aside , seized a towel and dried his face , and in an instant was by the side of his old friend . Neither did I , John , neither did I . But let me tell you one thing : its a good thing it did . If theyd got one of the men wEo had a preconceived policy to carry out , there would have been no end of trouble in addition to the troubles we already have . But I have no policy to which all else must conform , no particular notions to force upon the people . I simply wait upon events and act as the moment dictates , glad to accept anothers way if it be better and wiser than my own . ...
Prizes and Prize Money [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Prizes and Prize Money Before the United States fleet of warships had reached Cuba , a prize had been captured—a Spanish merchant vessel , the Buena Ventura—and the prize was brought back to Key West . Then followed four others in quick succession , the total value at this time amounting to more than a million of dollars . The officers arid men capturing these ships share in a division of the spoils , and the government takes a portion under certain conditions . If other ships are near when the capture is made , then its officers and irien , under the law governing the distribution of prize money , also share . The Catalina , the richest prize of all , was captured by the cruiser Detroit , and her men will take all of the prize money save that belonging to the government . All matters relating to the distribution are determined by the federal court ! in which the libel against the ship is filed by the attorney representing the United States . The court also has to determine whether ...
Edward Bellamy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Edward Bellamy Last Sunday Edward Bellamy , accompanied by his wife and two brothers , passed through Chicago on his way to his home at Springfield , Mass ., whither he goes to die , his physicians having advised him that he can live but a few weeks at most . A victim of consumption , Mr . Bellamy sought health in the salubrious atmosphere of Colorado , but it was unavailing to restore , and he novy realizes that his life work is ended . But though Mr , Bellamy is yet a man young in years , his life has been one of high value to his generation , and few men have done more to awaken the thought of brotherhood and social obligation than he . His first book upon social themes , Looking Backward , aroused universal interest and quickened the conscience of the people as no other work of its kind had done . Nationalism became a fad , and all over the country societies sprang up whose mission it was to spread his new gospel of socialism . He had dressed up an old idea in such attractive ga...
War Prices [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
War Prices It was with some surprise that we read some days ago an alleged interview with a prominent official of the agricultural department at Washington in which he declared that the first effect of war upon the prices of agricultural products would be to lower them . Already actual facts have disproven his contention , and May wheat at $ 1 . 20 indicates how quickly the upward trend of prices follows upon the beginning of hostilities . Whatever may be the ultimate outcome as to prices , there can be no doubt that while war lasts they must remain higher than during times of peace . Every man who goes to war is taken from the army of producers . Not only does he continue to be a consumer , but as compared with the amount consumed under normal conditions , the waste of war adds largely to the quantity required to supply his needs . Under such conditions there can be no question as to immediate results , and the significant term , war prices , expresses the general recognition of th...

f- I i 1 Id HKB il lltUt i II&lt; * Robert C . Morris , Olney , 111 . &gt; OVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV 0 IT is truly wonderful to pick up an agricultural journal of the character yours maintains and read articles written by men who hold the plow for a living . It is still more pleasing in that it foretells the rapid strides that are being made in the line of farm education in the direction of intensive farm methods . It means seeing and shunning ways that dont pay and adopting new and better ways that do and will continue to pay . Farmers themselves talk intelligently of nitrogen , phosphates , potash , humus , carbon and plant food , and they are fast finding out what a balanced ration means . That is what an animal digests and assimilates , makes a part of its carcass—that pays the farmer . Not to run feed through the animal into the manure pile . That ruins him . It is what we gain added to . what we now have that builds up the farm classes . Such mental food as you spre...
Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Agriculture Sugar Beet Notes The legislature of New York has appropriated $ 35 , 000 for the purpose of experimentation in the cultivation of sugar beets , and extensive preparations are being made to carry these forward . From thirty to fifty half-acre plots will be planted and a very large number of smaller ones , all under the supervision of the experiment stations at Cornell university and Geneva and the state commissioner of agriculture . The Illinois Sugar Beet Growers association is holding a meeting at Springfield , 111 ., to arrange for united action concerning the very elaborate experiments that are to be made the coming season . The Sioux City Journal , Sioux City , In ., says that we cannot produce our own sugar except at an increased cost to the consumer . The enterprising Journal seems to have forgotten , if it ever knew , that thousands of tons of beet sugar have been made in the United States for several years , and that same sugar is now being sold in Chicago for le...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Garden and Orchard Gardening on the Farm Planting time is almost at hand and some words concerning the proper way to do this are in order , for there is a right and a wrong way to plant as well as in most other things . In planting a garden more care should be taken than is possible in field work , as the cost of growing garden crops is larger proportionately than of growing field crops because of the more perfect and frequent cultivation . In planting sweet corn , for instance , instead of carelessly throwing the grains down in a bunch they should be . laid so as to be four inches apart . This will allow the planting of four grains in a hill , each of which may be expected to furnish one or more perfect ears of corn . To have corn the whole season it is only necessary to plant different varieties from the earliest Cory or Early . Minnesota for first , on through to one of the evergreen varieties which will last until green corn ceases to be a luxury . Be liberal about sweet corn an...

Live Stock and Dairy [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 30 April 1898
Live Stock and Dairy Summer Care of Colts Horses are beginning to be worth giving good attention again and the first summer of the colt counts for a great deal . Train the colt to the halter from the time it is a day old . There is never a ; time when it is so easily halter , broken as when very young . Put a headstall on it and let it be worn-all the time , taking oil the strap nights arid when it is in pasture with its dam . Never let a colt follow its dam without being tied to her . On the road this saves a lot of trouble for the owner arid a great deal of worrying on the part of the dam . The colt will soon learn to lead , at her side without trouble . When working the dam keep the colt tied to the fence in the shade if possible , allowing it to suck between breakfast and dinner and dinner and supper time , when the mare is cool . Never let a colt suck when its dam is heated from exercise . Fix a feed box in the stall for the colt where it can learn to eat at an early age and th...
