What To Do In July [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
What To Do In July Make hay while the sun shines , especially if it is alfalfa . * * * Try to get over that corn field just once more , then once again , but make the cultivation very shallow .. * * * Paint or grease the plows before putting away for the season ; do this even if you expect to use tho plows or cultivators again this fall . * * * Don t neglect the garden . Gardens can be kept in high productivity all summer and until frost it you keep weeds down and cultivation up . Three or four crops of lettuce , radishes and such crops can be grown , while plantings of peas , sweet corn and beans can be made so as to have successive crops of these all summer . * * * Flies mean irritation and less milk from the cows . Swat em right and left , in the kitchen and barnyard . The ounce of prevention kind of swatting is the kind that counts most . * * * Take a vacation .

Who ' s , Who In Business [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
Who s , Who In Business THE FARMER never appeared in a more favorable light than at the present time . For months business has been at a standstill in a great many industries , politics , war threats , banking readjustments to fit new laws , trust legislation pending and a general air of watchful waiting on the part of business throughout the country all combining to leave the business situation at a standstill and keep many hundreds of thousands of people out of employment . That has been the situation up till recently . Now the atmosphere is clearing and business is picking up in spite of hang-back politics . The farmer with his promise of the greatest crops ever harvested in the United States is the answer . As day after day , the early predictions of huge crops grow more and more certain with alternating sunshine and rain , business sits up and moves . We have recently returned from a 6 , 000-mile trip which included Chicago , Philadelphia , New York , Boston , Baltimore and Was...
fjM % 3 m * 3 M The County Agent Is The Best Investment Yet [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
fjM % 3 m * 3 M The County Agent Is The Best Investment Yet THE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX county agents who reported the results of their work for 1913 have added millions to the few states where they operated . When it is recalled that most of this work was launched only last year and that less than half of these one hundred and fiftysix worked more than six months in their counties , the results are worthy of note . Most of the first few months is employed in getting acquainted with the farmers and business men of the counties . Though a great amount of their work cannot be measured in dollars and cents , but must go on accumulating results for years , perhaps for all time , it is hard to put values on much of it . However , here are a few things these men who helped farm counties are directly responsible for—the construction of 1 , 804 silos ; the improvement of 617 farm buildings ; the installation of forty water supply systems ; the improvement of sanitary conditions and appearance...
Wallet for Valuable Papers [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
Wallet for Valuable Papers It is mighty satisfactory to have a safe and sure place to put a valuable paper or document and be able to find it when you want it There are pocket books and bill folds and other contrivances designed for this purpose , but few or none are practical ; very handy for every-day use , of course , but not designed either as files or records . Our new , handy and safe Wallet for Valuable Papers exactly fills the bill .

atyt * Qtmtntrg » mf * to «&amp; BELIEVE that the country which God made is more beautiful than the city which man made ; that life out of doors and in touch with the earth is the natural life of man . I believe that work witn nature is more inspiring than work with the most intricate machinery . I believe that the dignity of labor depends not on what you do . but how you do it , that opportunity comes to a boy on the farm as often as to a boy in the city ; that life is larger and freer and happier on the farm than in town ; that my success depends not upon my location , but upon myself ; not upon my dreams , but npon what I actually do ; not upon luck , but upon pluck . I believe in working when you work and in playing when yon play , and in giving and demanding a square deal in every act of life .
Jt Jt J > The South is "Coming Back " [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
Jt Jt J &gt; The South is Coming Back The South is back on the map agriculturally as well as politically . Youth and the American spirit cannot be downed by prejudice and tradition . It has taken half a century to heal the breach made by a war that split the nation , brother against brother , and threatened to stamp out government by and for the people , but it has been done . The days of reconstruction have been long hard days for the South , and agriculture has been the slowest to recuperate . The land that was abandoned and worn out by continuous cotton and tobacco cropping is being rejuvenated by rotations , changed crops , cattle , hogs and sheep . No longer is the South a Hind of razorbacks , houndawgs , moonshiners , swamp and poor white trash , as has been the popular idea of our more progressive agriculturists of the North and West the past decade or two . The successful sales of the Angus , Shorthorn and Hereford registry associations in Southern territory the past...
Jt J * Jl Give Mother a Vacation [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
Jt J * Jl Give Mother a Vacation AS A WOMAN with a vocation , the housewife is entitled to a vacation as much as a person in any other line of work . Every housewife can take a vacation at home , if she desires one . bhe must plan for it herself , and make up her mind to take a rest , if she expects to get one . Chas . Dillon in the Industrialist tells how one woman planned a new way by which the family could spend the vacation at home . She could not think of a long , tiresome trip , such as she had taken in years past . She was worn out with the care of her family and home . She wanted to rest . She chose the time when her husband was taking his vacation . She planned to let every one of the family spend his time as he pleased . The husband and children helped with the housework , and what cooking was done they did . They planned that part of mother s rest No one was displeased if the meals were not prepared on time . The mother read the books she liked . How she did enjoy reading...

1 J /^ Tfc l ^ iNMIP Li ( i 11 yr ^^ z v ? ^^^ FEffiGoim V (/ IT CAN be done , the theory of producing beef on high priced farm land of the middle west is sound . I have recently seen a splendid example of how easy it is under good ordinary farming such as any progressive live stock farmer can and is doing in making a living from land that is held at $ 20 O- | 3 OO per acre . This farmer , who is an Iowa man , has gradually built up and perfected his system through careful observation and selection of breeding stock the mst few years until he now turns off a car of finshed babies every spring , raising all of them from his herd of big grade cows . The last load , shipped out the first of May , was sold by contract for $ 8 00 per hundred several weeks earlier , and averaged 833 pounds , three late calves tn the bunch cutting down the average materially . But the point is he raised the stuff on his own farm , from his cows that , pastured on $ 2 S 0 land and did it by marketing the ca...
What They Read [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1914
What They Read By AUe Holey Have you Like No Other Love ? I looked up in astonishment at the woman who asked the question . She must have been forty years old , was decidedly plain , though dressed with extreme neatness , the sort of woman one would expect to see haggling over a peddlers wagon about the price of beets and onions . Im sorry , madam , replied the shopman , but the last copy was sold this morning . Is there nothing else ? You haven t The Bride of a Day , have you ? Yes , I can give you that . And Her Hearts Dearest Idol ? This was found , the books wrapped and paid for , and the woman went her way rejoicing . . I could have told you what kind of book that lady would ask for , said the little old man . We had grown quite friendly chatting over books and writers . Indeed ? I answered . Yes , its that sort of woman and young girls whose mothers don t pay any attention to them , that read those stories . Here comes another thatll buy the same sort of trash . I stared as th...

I ^ IVE ^ TOGK Hot Weatjier Rules Prepared by the Boston Work Horse Association 1 . Load lightly , and drive slowly . 2 . Stop in the shade if possible . 3 . Water your horse as often as possible . So long as a horse is working , water in moderate quantities will not hurt him . But let him drink only a few swallows if he is going to stand still . Do not fail to water him at night after he has eaten his hay . 4 . When he comes in after work , sponge off the harness marks and sweat his eyes , his nose and mouth , and the dock . Wash his feet but not his legs . 5 . If the thermometer is 75 degrees or higher , wipe him all over with a wet sponge . Use vinegar water if possible . Do not turn the hose on him . 6 . Saturday night , give a bran mash , cold ; and add a tablespoonful of saltpetre . 7 . Do not use a horse-hat unless it is a canopy-top hat The ordinary bellshaped hat does more harm than good . 8 . A sponge on top of the head , or \\\ even a cloth , is good if kept wet . If dry ...

Be sure your hands have been washed clean ; be sure your nails are curried ; More milk is drawn from cow serene than from the cow that s worried . Kicking the cow has not been good form for some time in even moderately advanced dairy circles , though the ban upon it probably originated more in practical than humane considerations . Painful experience warranted the conclusion that the cow thus approached was far more likely to kick the milker through the side of the barn . Of late years the cow-shed code of manners and morals has developed rapidly from the negative to the positive style —from thou shalt nots to thou shalts . It has been discovered that the cow , long the poet s live stock emblem of placidity , has nerves , and should be soothed an...
