Stand Firm ! [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
Stand Firm ! REACTION IS ON ! The rheumatic forces of the old gang are trying to get into the saddle once more . Wisconsin , for example , has been too progressive for the last decade , according to the standpat idea , and now that the taxpayers are beginning to catch their breaths and have to dig down into their pockets to pay for the privilege of living in the most progressive state in the union , they note that things are not as they used to be and are pausing to listen to the old gang that was crowded aside when the voters took the reins some years ago , and , putting the state in the hands of the university , led it out of the maze of graft and cheap politics that had traditionally held back not only Wisconsin , but every state and most of the cities of the United States , to say nothing of other countries , in spite of their hypocritical cant that they are better governed . We have just taken a trip through a great part of the most prosperous sections of Wisconsin and noted th...

aji JS J * Buying By Mail [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
aji JS J * Buying By Mail IT IS AMUSING to follow the ridiculous antics of certain trade circles whose leaders are trying to persuade country people that it is against their interest to deaf with so-called mail order houses . These activities of persuasion are mostly confined to the jobbers who see their trade imperiled by the phenomenal growth of business which is conducted direct from manufacturer or wholesaler to the consumer . The small country papers are filled with plate matter , which bears marks of having a common origin in the sales department of some jobbing house , pleading with local consumers to stand by their local tradesman , who , of course , must look to the jobbers principally for their merchandise . How unavailing are these specious arguments is proved by the constant growth of houses which do business direct by mail with customers in the remotest confines of the continent . The editor of Better Farming is fortunate in being a country resident , but his good fortu...
• P IP Jf * Get Some "Pep" Into the Fair [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
• P IP Jf * Get Some Pep Into the Fair ACTIONS THE WORD these days , and tne state or county fair which does not demonstrate things is in a rut . Visitors like to see things at work , whether they be machinery or animals . The fair which is getting this idea into its exhibits and program is getting the crowds and the press notices . Clean fairs that educate , instead of swindle , have been coming more and more to the fore for the past decade , but novelty and action have been added to this asset , until the fair management with ideas is the one that is pulling into the lead . Exhibitors are getting the idea . There are some dairy herds which will this fall be milked early in the evening , by Dutch dairy maws in costume , so that the crowds may see . Those exhibitors have the idea and will get full advertising value from their exhibits . Agricultural college students will score live stock at some fairs , the farm boys , who are hungering for agricultural education , getting an idea o...
* a ^ i til Fair Play [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
* a ^ i til Fair Play THERE IS SOMETHING wrong with business . There isn t much ; there isn t a panic and nobody is expecting one . Everybody is conscious that there is sand in the gears , or that one of the cars that makes up our big train of national prosperity has got the brakes set . Nobody seems to know just what is the matter , and perhaps this editor doesn t know any more than the rest . The crops are good , or , if they are not good everywhere , prices are so good as to compensate for occasional losses . We have gone through the tariff struggle without any serious disturbance , and we have even got reasonably through with currency agitation without breaking any eggs , although some of the big bankers tried awfully hard to shake the basket and scramble up the situation . Almost everybody has driven down their tent stakes , not fearing a . storm , but chiefly because everybody else is doing the same thing . After the first of the year , the wise ones tell us the clouds will se...
, * * « 5 l J * Great Caesar's Ghost [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
, * * « 5 l J * Great Caesars Ghost THE MAN who talks about whether to build a silo or not is no longer in good standing ; the up-to-date farmer is talking about whether he can find time enough to build another silo or two this fall . The world certainly does progress , and the one thing above everything else outside of our agricultural colleges and experimental stations that is advancing the farmer to the stage where he will no longer be the joke farmer for the rest of the world is the silo . When a silo will increase the profit per steer over $ 17 in the feed lot or reduce the cost of producing a pound of butter 10 cents , it is no longer a question of whether or not to can , but how much can we can ? The ideal situation will be reached when every acre of corn grown will go into the silo and save the country close to a bi lion dollars a year . Think of the battleships a billion dollars a year would build 1 Imagine , if you can , the road system the United States could build in ten...
The Lever Act Brings College and Experiment Station to the Farm [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
The Lever Act Brings College and Experiment Station to the Farm With the Lever act now a law the farmers of the United States have available the greatest set of madunery for the use of known agricultural knowledge available in any country . This is the fourth of a set of acts which have in the past fifty years given the farmers education , experimental work , fesearch work and extension work which carries all the results of the three earlier acts to the doors of the Smew and makes available that which fits hi The ° Mo ? riH Land Grant Act , which gave to each state a Piece of public land from which the state agricultu raT colleges , were built , was thefirstoi these coming early in the civil war , in 1862 .

YQUNO „ FARM FOLKS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
YQUNO „ FARM FOLKS A Letter from Bill to His Brother in Town Hillcrest Farm . Dear Bud . Well , how goes the big city and the new job ? I spose you take in the movies and the band concerts and the bathing beaches every chance you get . Gee it must be swell . I wish we had a little of it here , I saw in the paper how they had opened up a new band park or whatever you call them , near where you live , so I spose youll be up on the latest when you come home . It s so long since I wrote you I cant remember all the things that have happened but Ill make a stab at it , and maybe youll be a little glad for news of the old farm . At the first of the summer one day when dad and me was driving the milk to the creamery , dad says , sort of sidewise out of his eye , that he was sort of lonesome now you was gone , and he was thinking of taking a partner . Well , I waited to hear him say Jed Morse or Ed Davis , but great snakes—who do you suppose it was but yours truly . Well , I pretty near fell...
Something for Sister [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1914
Something for Sister If little sister is going around saying , What shall I play with ? suppose you get busy and make her one of these lawn fun-makers , or merry-go-rounds . Set a stout post in the lawn in a nice shady place ; make the post about three feet high . Across the top , balance and bolt a good stout beam or pole about ten or twelve feet long . Be sure your cross beam balances , or it will not swing smoothly on the pivot . The accompanying sketch shows the seats swung on the ends of the pole . Make the suspending ropes just long enough so that the youngster s feet can clear the ground when the swing is in motion . We guarantee this will amuse her and her little friends for the rest of the summer .
