Feeding-in-Transit Rates , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Feeding-in-Transit Rates , The following is the resolution unanimously adopted by the National Stock Growers Convention at Its recent meeting in Denver : Resolved , That the interests of the plain and mountain states , as well as the corn growing states , imperatively demand feedlng-in-transit rates to all points west and southwest of Chicago , to the end that the cheapest grass and the cheapest corn and the lowest freight rates may enable the great West to furnish the cheapest and finest meats to feed the nations . The resolution is an argument in itself and sums up briefly and tersely all that needs to be said or that can be said on the subject The mountain and plain states , comprising as they do nearly two-fifths of the entire area of the United States , leaving out Alaska are one great natural pasture embracing every degree of latitude in the United States , utterly , useless , with the exception of limited areas capable of irrigation , for any other agricultural purpose except...
A Menace to the Republic . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
A Menace to the Republic . Ex-President Harrison , in an address on The Obligations of Wealth , In Chicago on Washington s birthday , said : Mr . Lincoln s startling declaration that this country could not continue to exist half slave and half free may be paraphrased today by saying that this country cannot continue to exist half taxed and half free . This sense of Inequality breathes a fierce and unmeasuring anger—creates classes , intensifies social differences , and makes men willing to pay their debts in half dollars . The Just sacredness of these money obligations , the right of the holders to be paid in money of full value , will be clearer to these angry men if they see that these securities are paying fully their lawful taxes . Where Is the moral distinction between the act of putting one hand in his neighbor s pocket and clandestinely abstracting his pocketbook and the fraudulently shifting of a debt that I owe to another ? If there is not enough public virtue left in our c...
A Meat Inspection Decision . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
A Meat Inspection Decision . Judge Rodgers , of Fort Smith , Ark ., decided the meat inspection law to be unconstitutional . Secretary Wilson is reported as saying : The case on which the decision is founded being criminal only , the government has no right of appeal , as the constitution provides that no man shall be twice put in jeopardy of his life or liberty . As the law stands , we will proceed to administer the law Just as if no decision had been rendered . It will be a great pity if some technical judge interferes with our meat inspection and thus closes the markets of Europe against our pork . If the constitution of the United States does not permit this , the sooner it is changed the better .
Institutes and County Fairs . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Institutes and County Fairs . It is time that our county fair system _ hould be overhauled . It was well enough . In its day , tout . having failed to keep up with the march of agricultural improvement , It needs revision , and now is a good time to give the matter attention . Attorney-General Beimley gave an opinion ait the request of the .. auditor as to whether the county fair associations were entitled to $ 200 annually appropriated by the state . In the opinion of the attorney-general a large number had failed to fuHfill the requirements , and a bill is now before the legislature -which has for its object the amendment of the law that Will enable counties to secure the _ tate aid . There can be no amendment of the Jaw that will be of any value that does not compel -he county associations to be something more than fair associations . The trouble with the state board of agriculture for some time past has been that it is simply a fair association and not educational in its charact...

The Export of Com . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
The Export of Com . Much has been said of late on the importance of increasing our export of corn by teaching foreign nations , at government expense , to use it as a breadstuff in lieu of wheat , rye , and oats . We are told that this export is continually growing , and reached last year the unprecedented amount of 186 ,- 000 , 000 bushels , or about ten per cent of the average crop , and that in a few years , if the proper means were used in the way of educating the foreigner , it might reach 600 , 000 , 000 , or a little over twenty per cent of the average crop . • • • It seems to be assumed by the Maize Propaganda , the name assumed by an association recently organized in Chicago to draw the chariot of King Corn , that this enlarged export of corn is profitable to the farmer , and that the larger the exports , the more profitable it will become . We , therefore , raise the question at the outset : Is this assumption true ? » * » It may be freely conceded in times of abnormal che...
Alsike in Sloughs , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Alsike in Sloughs , A subscriber from Ft Atkinson , presents the following problem : I have a pasture of forty acres with a slough running diagonally across it , covering in all ten acres . I have been told by a friend to sow alsike clover on it to improve the pasture , and as a recent issue of Wallaces Farmer also recommends it , I wish to know if it will take root on unbroken sod . If so , will it in time die out like the common red clover , and if the pasture is left for meadow subsequently , will the clover make good hay ? Will it spread out and become a weed in the fields adjoining ? How much seed would you recommend per acre on unbroken soil ? We would burn off all the truck as early in the spring as possible and sow about five pounds of alsike clover per acre on the wild sod . In the slough it will not need covering . The success of securing a stand depends not merely on sowing the seed but in keeping the slough grass down in some way during the summer . Cattle will not eat t...
A Big Crop . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
A Big Crop . There is undoubtedly more land devoted to corn growing and more value in the crop than any other crop grown in the United States , and it will , therefore , interest our readers to know of the wonderful record made by the new Iowa SiH or Mine corn . Last year when we announced in our columns that this variety of corn had produced 215 bushels per acre in Scott county , Iowa , the etatement was thought to be almost beyond belief , bnt this year there have been other crops which nearly equaled it , though the crop last year still stands as the largest crop ever grown under ordinaiy conditions without the use of commercial fertilizers . This year the Iowa Silver Mine corn produced 211 bushels per aire In Indiana , 201 bushels per acre in Arkansas , 178 bushels per acre in Illinois and immense crops in Nebraska , Ohio , Texas , Minnesota and It is an early variety , maturing in 95 days . The ear is long , as shown in the illustration , grain is deep , cob small . That our su...

Abortion . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Abortion . There are few diseases that vex the soul of the farmer more than abortion . Like tuberculosis , it is universal , and while it appears among mares , ewes , brood sows , in fact all kinds of stock , cows are more subject to it than any other . The New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station has recently published Bulletin No . 127 , which we presume states about everything that is actually and certainly known on the subject of this disease , and as we are now approaching the time of year when abortion is most common , we take the liberty of condensing its valuable suggestions . The loss of calves in Europe is reported at from 20 to 60 per cent of specially infected herds , the average loss is set at about five per cent , and the money loss for each abortion is estimated at from $ 30 to $ 40 . An investigation made in New Jersey shows that the losses have been very heavy , but are now declining owing to the better care which fanners are taking of their stock . If reliable st...

Grass Mixtures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 11 March 1898
Grass Mixtures . The season is now at hand when the farmer should make up -. a mind not only as to how much of his land he should set down to grass , but what grasses he will sow , In what proportion , and how he should cover them to insure success . If he wishes a permanent pasture , he should sow every variety of grass that does well in his section on his variety of soil . In any part of Iowa , Illinois , northern Missouri , eastern Kansas and Nebraska , on upland soils , it is sale to recommend the following , per acre : Ked clover - pounds Mammoth clover 4 pounds Timothy 8 pounds Blue grass 4 pounds White clover 1 pound On wet lands now in native grasses , we would begin with live pounds of alsike , and , it the land was not too wet , with eight pounds of timothy , and introduce the other clovers and blue grass afterwards . On the uplands , the red clover will last about three years , the timothy four or five , and by that time the blue grass and white clover will fully occupy t...
