To The Farmers of the United States [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
To The Farmers of the United States La Salk , III ., May 1 st , 1913 Gentlemen : On this page you will find a very common written small advertisement of ONeil Implement Company , which I specially present here to call your attention to the fact that we are manufacturing a line of high grade farm machinery , and that we are offering these implements direct to the consumer , that we are making : these prices as reasonable as we possibly can afford , after computing the cost of production and the cost of distribution . There is no question in my mind but what everyone in these United States who buys a farm implement of any kind is entitled to a reasonable knowledge of the manufacturer from whom he buys the implement . In view of this fact , I want to tell you that I was raised upon a farm , that during the few years I lived there I actually done a great variety of the different classes of work that is necessary for a farmer to perform . I then found that it was necessary to arise early...

It Is Common [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
It Is Common So are the stars and the arching skies , So are the smiles m tin children s eyes ; Common the life-giving breath of the spring ; Snare the songs whic h the wild birds sing—Blessed be God , they are common t Common the grass in its glowing green ; So is the water s glistening sheen ; Common the springs of love and mirth ; So are the holiest gifts of earth . Common the fragrance of rosy June ; So is the generous harvest moon , So are the towering , mighty hills , So ore the twittering , trickling nils . Common the beautiful tints of the fall ; So « the sun which is over all ; Common the rain , xvith its pattering feet ; So is the bread which we daily eat—Blessed be God , it is common ! So is the sea in its wild unrest , Kissing forever the earth s brown breast ; So is the voice of undying prayer , Evermore piercing the ambient air . So unto all are the promises given , So unto all is the hope of heaven ; Common the rest from the weary strife ; So is the life which is afte...
Better Farming and Better Living [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
Better Farming and Better Living By Fredk I . Chapman * £ || Bggj || raGRI CULTURE is the oldest profes- \*\ wSsmiX _ m sion or pursuit in the world . Adam fccS ^ V-Jlsf didn t have to work until he fled from MT | 3 LS the orchard of Eden , but his sons | | l | y ||| l || were farmers . One raised live stock , BiESaBBBl the other grain . From the time of Abel and Cain to the day of our grandfathers , however many thousand years that may have been , agriculture showed little or no progress . It was merely a pursuit , not a profession . It was pursued merely to eke a starving existence for those who could not pursue the chase and thus live by easier means . The work was all manual and not with machine . It was hard , hand labor , back-breaking and slow , from the spading of the ground to the threshing of the harvest with a flail . I was almost astonished the other day to be reminded that there are men now living who saw the first reaper and the first steel plow . Why , come to think a...

Grading and Shelling Seed Cora [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
Grading and Shelling Seed Cora Take time by the forelock and get the Wed corn and the corn planter ready for oration now before the rush ot plantil rime . Even at this time of the year here are days when weather or soil conditions prevent plowing or other field Irk , that can profitably be used : n improving the quality of the seed corn . The best time to grade seed corn is before it is shelled . The Office of Corn Investigations of the U . S . Department of Agriculture proved by careful field experiments that an ear having kernels of undesirable shapes produces ears most of which have kernels of undesirable shapes . All ears that are undesirable for one reason or another should be discarded before shelling Those who have neglected to take good care of their seed corn may now find dead ears among their supply . In such cases it will be profitable to test the germination of each ear separately . Where well adapted varieties are grown that properly mature before frost , poor germinati...
Man 's Best Friend : II-The Horse [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
Man s Best Friend : II-The Horse Prize Essay The horse is man s best friend . Since man first knew the first of the splendid Arabians he has known the horse as the mightiest instrument of human progress , noblest of servants and truest of brute friends . The westward march of civilization from the cradle of humanity in the Euphrates was on the back of a charger . He brought man to Europe and conquered Europe for man . Bred for battle and carnival , the horse became the foundation of peace . When the human race turned from war to go afield , when tillage and commerce replaced fighting , there was no less need for the horse . The story of his adaptation from armor-bearing war steed to harness-bearing plow steed forms one of the most interesting chapters of history . The red man of the American prairie recognized in him his best friend as soon as the Spaniards had made it possible for them to acquire him ; now we have him drawing burdens , carrying us lightly on his back , pulling our ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1913
Building Up a Dairy Herd With butter selling to the city customer at 40 c a pound and the price of _ dairy foods soaring upwards , the question of the robber cow becomes more interesting every day . How any man can go along feeding a lot of scrub cows that cost more than they make is beyond comprehension . If you have cows and the Babcock test shows four of them do not produce enough milk to pay for their keep , why not sell them and put the proceeds into one good cow ? This cow would not only save loss of the robber cows , but earn a net profit of from $ 3000 to $ 50 . 00 per year . That is good business sense , isn t it ? We have some champion milk and butter records that you may want to refer to some time when you want to know the possibilities of milk and butter production . Jacoba Irene , Jersey cow , made a record of 15 , 503 lbs . of milk , testing 5 . 5 % butter fat , equal to 8 , 539 lbs . in a year . Rena Ross , Ayreshire cow , 15 , 072 lbs . of milk testing 426 % butter f...
