He immediately went into agricultural Journalistic work, being connected with several papers in the following years. He still owns "Modern Agriculture," a monthly publication issued at Waterloo. He also spent five years as a special field man in charge of the alfalfa campaign for the Northwest Farmstead. His campaign slogan was "an acre of alfalfa for every cow" As a result of his five years' work the alfalfa acreage in Minnesota increased the income of farmers in that state by 30 million dollars, officials of the farm publication stated, on a basis of. what the income would have been had the usta Kinney against Amos Kinney, and ] anc i remained in either wheat, oats, the second by Eleanor Mae Wanzer against Frank Wanzer.
