Climbing to a Dairy Pinade in Six Years Climbing to a Dairy Pinacle in Six Tears Six years ago when Francis M . Jones , a farmer in the hills of Oneida County , Nexy York , heard of the profits made in raising pedigree cattle , he suggested to his father that they sell their common cows and engage in the business of breeding hi gh-class animals . Jones was then » i his twenties , struggling hard to make a rockly upland farm a financial success . Since that time , Jones history reads like an Arabian Nights tale . Jones father had little faith in new-fangled ideas . Naturally when Jones suggested that they mvest m pure-bred cows , he vetoed the lea and he preferred the cheaper and commoner stock . ) oung Jones argued long and earnestly , i-inall y his father yielded . Do as you fMse he said ; I wash my hands of ine whole affair . Without delay , young joncs announced that their cattle were r sale .

Corn—The King Crop Vr [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1913

Corn—The King Crop Vr Eugene Parsons | > MIM-M _ l--MMM-MMMWM lm ll »¦ I NDIAN CORN is the king crop of America , if not of the world . The corn annually harvested in the United States is worth more than all the other principal crops put together , except hay and cotton . It is worth more than cotton and wheat . The annual average value of corn is a billion and a half , or more . With the exception of one year ( 1901 ) the production of maize has exceeded two billion bushels annually . In 1910 it reached the grand total of 3 , 125 , 713 , 000 bushels , which , if loaded for market , would make a string of wagons long enough to extend from the earth to the moon . The imagination of man is staggered by the immensity of such figures , and yet a well-known agricultural writer tells of a billhondollar waste in the cornbelt . There are those who think the corn crop could be doubled by careful selection of seed and by improved tillage and cultivation . Certainly this is a result...

__\\\ a \ ( Tr ^ rC HHfaVEiSTO & m Pasture Crops For Hogs There is money in raising hogs at nine cents per pound , said a Hoosier farmer , as he dumped half a bushel of earn corn upon the floor of a feeding pen . Yes , there is money in raising hogs at nine cents per pound , but the important point in profitable hog raising is to grow them so cheaply that a profit can be made on any market . This can t be done on pasture of plantain and red sorrel . In order to produce cheap hogs they must be provided with succulent and nutritious forage from early spring until late fall . The legumes , clover , alfalfa , soy beans and cowpeas , should be used for this purpose wherever possible , for by growing these crops we may catch em comin and a-goin ; that is , we get a profit from feeding the crop and at the same time improve the productivity of the soil . Rye and rape seeded together make an early growth that furnish pasturage for hogs from soon after the opening of spring until ...

ALL . ^ DPW ^ J _^ BM [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1913

ALL . ^ DPW ^ J _^ BM Care of Manure Spreader Nothing in the operation , of any machine is as important as the lubrication ; and the manure spreader is no exception to this rule . It should be oiled frequently . When first using a new spreader you should go over it very carefully , oiling all moving parts . Then watch the machine closely for awhile , and you will soon learn what parts must be oiled several times in a day s work . Get into the habit of oiling it regularly as needed . Dont think that it does not need oil when it is covered with manure . It may not be a nice job at times , but it pays in the end . When the machine is not being used every day it should be cleaned and oiled before putting it away in the shed . Rust and decay take more life from the machine than the actual work . This is proven by the many break-downs that occur with the first load hauled after the spreader has been idle for five or six months . Keep the beater clean . A clogged beater adds greatly to the...

ORCHARD , l AND I GARDEN * [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1913

ORCHARD , l AND I GARDEN * Plowing Old Orchards It is a great help to old orchards to break them up and practice cultivation tor a season . Cultivation , however , cannot be followed if the land is hilly and washes . In these cases seeding with some good cover crop such as rye will hold the plant food in the soil and at the same time prevent the washing by spring and summer rains . Where an orchard has been allowed to stand in sod for a long term of years and the grass pastured off from year to year this , with the fruit removed from the trees may be sufficient to deplete the fertility of the soil . Then , too , the sod may have become thickly matted and the soil just beneath the sod so thoroughly packed as to practically exclude all free air . Whatever may be the reason , many orchards have responded rap idly to the cultivation treatment , and it is the common practice with most larger commercial orchardists to either keep the space between the trees under constant cultivation , us...

it is Small Pumping Engines for Farm Use [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1913

it is Small Pumping Engines for Farm Use interesting to stop and ponder over some of the great inventions of the last few decades , and their close relation to modern farm life . The railroads , steamship lines , telephone and telegraph all bear an important part in producing and marketing the increased crops that we are able to grow with the help of the cultivator , the plow , the transplanter , the binder , the threshing machine and tractor . Our land could not be utilized and our present population fed without all these . Even the automobile is coming to be considered a necessity rather than a luxury in many sections , placing the farmer in as close touch with his neighbors as the city man , while the economy and convenience of farm water supply systems and farm electric lighting systems , are making many a city brother take notice . The first great use of the small gasoline engine , of course , is pumping water . Every farmer knows how important it is to have plenty of cool fres...
