History of the Buff Plymouth Rock [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

History of the Buff Plymouth Rock THB Buff Plymouth Rock , at the-out-set df its career , says Irving Crocker in the American Buff Plymouth Rock Club catalogue , was more than fortunate in having the prestige of a good name . It matters not what our prejudices may be , or : in what otherydiirection our individual preferences may run , we cannot deny the fact that : the Barred Plymouth Bock is today the most widely distributed and the most popular fowl in this country ; While the magic which is in the name clings to many an old scrub which , by careless breeding , has degenerated until it shows but the slightest trace of its ancestry . Shakespeare has said : What s in a name ? : That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet . This may be true of roses , but it does not apply to chickens . The name and the reputation of the original Plymouth Rock made a short cut to fame possible to the newer varieties . Had they been obliged to win for themselves a name they might ...

Notes bv the Wav—I [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Notes bv the Wav—I THB People . —A ten-days outing driving in a buggy with-Mrs . Rice , taking a look at the country , expecting to call on some : friends whom wehad learned something of through the farm journals , but whom we had never met ; and an old friend or two of other states , who had settled in this new land , and attending a convention- was a pleasure that very busy days heretofore had allowed us too little of in our frontier life of six years . A well-filled lunch basket for ourselves with something for our horses in emergencies was supposed to be needed , but we came home as we went , lunch untouched and the pocketbook just as full as at starting , though that might not mean much in one way , but in another way it says more for the kindness of our people than any words we could add . THB Territory ,-rIn area small , only twen-ty-three counties , so in ten days , with but short stops , we could see quite a part of it . I have written heretoforethat both in crops and soil ...

The Best Market Hog [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

The Best Market Hog By W . S . Hannah ., B EFORE the first little pig went- to market , or even before the domestic pig ¦ existed , and . long before Chas : Lamb s famous roast pig , the kind of pig to grow was a question even in the mind of the earliest inhabitant ; but even before the pig had a public market value and long before the days of packing houses and export trade , the question was settled by that famous old couple Jack Sprat who would eat no fat and his wife who would eat no lean . Just so , all questions are settled according to the public taste or demands , or according to the contents of the purse . There are at least three things for the cnetral western hog grower to . consider in connection with this question , namely :, the kind of food grown , the general market demands and the general surroundings . As to the first of these . . there are localities where the grains grown , either on account of soil and climate or from force of habit , would not furnish suitable ...

, In the Horse Market [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

, In the Horse Market P RICES for heavy drafters remain , good despite the fact that , many of the export buyers have gone home for the holidays . Last week good specimens of this kind of horse were in active demand at Chicago , National Stock Yards and Minneapolis , the figures for 1 , 700 to 1 , 900 pound horses ranging from $ 150 to $ 225 . These prices are not as high as they were on the bulge last April , but this coming spring even better prices may be looked for because there are not as many big drafters to go to market ., * * * Gaston Roy , buying for his father , A .

Record from Grade Holsteins [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Record from Grade Holsteins By D . H . Otis .- MR . T . A . BORMAN , Navarre , Kan ., presented a very interesting and able paper before the Kansas State Dairy Association on How We Breed , Feed , and Handle Our Cows—Results . A year s rep ort . qf a herd of twelve grade Holstein cows shows an average annual yield per cow of 8 , 263 pounds of milk . This brought a cash income of $ 49 . 70 . Add to this the value ofthe calf and the skim milk , and we , have a total annual income per cow of $ 81 . 17 . This is the highest record Svehave seen , of a . Kansas herd . Mr . Borman weighs and tests the milk of each individual cow and says that his cows will actually give more milk when a pair of scales hang in the barn . If a cow falls off in her milk supply the cause is sought for and if possible removed ; if , on the other hand , the cow increases her milk flow , the cause is likewise investigated and similar conditions suppliedto the rest of the herd ., By keeping these individual record...

The . Hen For Helen , ¦ by her . Father Woods . Of all the birds Onr Father made , The best one is the hen ; He put more brains in their little heads Than ; He . ( has- in some of men . They do not fly to mountain peats , Or soar from zone to zone , But are content in any . place—For them no place like home . The eagle is the honored bird Because he flies so high ; Give me a hen—I want no part Of the eagles in the sky ! , , When the morning stars first sang for joy , No doubt the roosters crew ; And hens laid eggs in Paradise When this old world was new . Adown the ages the records show That hens their parts have played ; Mankind have lived upon their flesh , And on the eggs they ve laid . The roosters were the ancient clocks , And told the time of night : All nations counted on their time When the sun was . out of sight . Peter heard the rooster s crow When his Master he denied ; E er after . that when he heard them crow He remembered how he lied . Christ wept- o er Jerusalem , And...

Storing Ice—AReininder [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Storing Ice—AReininder By F . W . Mos eley . A REMINDER of the importance of stor- • r > ing ice on the farm will be in- order at any time during the fall and winter months , yet an early hint is better than a late one , as it gives the farmer opportunity to put his ice house in order if he has one ; to build one if he has none , and in either case to secure non-conducting material , such as saw-dust or tan-bark for packing the ice , if located where either or both are conveniently obtained . But a late reminder is better than none . An ice house need not be an expensive construction . In fact , any rude building made of rough boards will answer the purpose . Good drainage must be provided for , also good ventilation . The drain must not admit a current of air to the ice . There must be a good foundation , or bed on which the lower layer of ice is to rest , and it should be covered with non-conducting material . It is better to build early , before cold weather sets in , ...

Timely Topics [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Timely Topics Traae and Prices a \ HE average prices of twenty staple farm products included in our index table show a slight fall this week , chiefly due to a drop of about $ 2 . 00 in the price of horses . As forecast last week , the price of corn and wheat , and-other cereals influenced by these leaders , has advanced . We believe the price of corn will go still higher . We are not so hopeful of wheat . The advance in the price of this cereal has had the effect of bringing out considerable stock which was held back for higher prices , so that the visible supply is largely increased . It how stands at 53 , 000 , 000 bushels . in round- numbers as against 51 , 000 , 000 bushels for the same period last year . Still , the visible supply is much less than for several years prior to 1897 . Beef shows a slight raise , due probably to the holiday trade , and pork alone stands a trifle higher , due doubtless to-the advanced price of corn . The banks of the United States show a gain of mo...

Co-operation [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Co-operation By Lief Robertson . IN a recent issue of your paper I noticed • an article . commenting on the opinion of Carnegie in an , . interview regarding combinations or trusts , in which Carnegie suggests as a remedy further consolidation ,: while you take the ground-that co-operation with free competition ,- under the bi-metallic standard is the true remedy . I do not presume to criticize your argument , but to my -mind where co-operation exists there can be no competition under any system of finance . The object sought and obtained by consolidation is the crowding out of competitors , and as consolidation is in effect the same as co-opera-tion , the f result in both cases would be the same . No doubt bi-metallism would check the evil of falling prices , but it is not the true remedy . Corporations and trusts would continue to drive the people out of business and employment . Nor will it suffice to enact legislation with the object of driving out this evil and seeking to re-es...

The Carolinas in Midwinter [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

The Carolinas in Midwinter By O . McG . Howard . /¦ TAHE trip from the show-bound north I to the sunny south has been so - * - often described in these columns that the writer will not attempt it , but , no matter how often it is made , the delightful sensation is just the same . In the early days of our first colony there was another sensation which was often described , and that , was the change from the hurry and nu & tle of . northern enterprise Into the slow and peaceful methods of the south—just then waking from , its Rip Van Winkle sleep of thirty years . To-day that change is much less apparent . In fact to one who is a careful observer the question at once arises whether the real enterprise , the undercurrent which always precedes a boom , is not setting in this direction . There is a class of men who have the faculty of seeing the signs of the times and taking advantage of them , who have the sagacity to take hold of large undertakings while they are in their i...

Securing the Gold Standard by Law [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 29 December 1898

Securing the Gold Standard by Law OUR newspapers are full of discussions in regard to the proposed national legislation for what is so falsely called monetary reform . By the use of this phrase they mean fixing the gold standard on our nation by . law , and surrendering to private corporations , that tremendous power in- government , the issue of paper money . We are specially thankful that neither of these things are yet secured by law and hope they never may be . Here and there we see some man not quite so diplomatic as others bluntly blurt out the truth . At Davenport , Iowa , on December 12 ; the so-called sound moneymen had a conventionto air their , sentiments so as to stimulate congressional action . Judge French , a gentleman unknown to us , made a statement which we quote as follows , from the printed report : The gold standard now rests on the will of a single man . No monarch in all history , no despot at the height of his power , held the weal or woe of millions in his h...
