The World at War [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

The World at War Put up thc sivord ! Thc voice of Christ once more Speaks , in the pauses of the camion s roar , O er fields of com by fiery sickles reaped And left dry ashes ; over the trenches heaped With nameless dead ; o er cities starving slozu Under a rain of fire ; through wards of -woe Down which a groaning diapason runs From tortured brothers , husbands , lovers , sons Of desolate women iu their far-off homes . Waiting to hear the step that never comes . O men aud brothers ! let that voice be heard . War fails , try peace ; put up thc useless sword ! t 3 A c _ 58 tSa

The Old Order Endeth [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

The Old Order Endeth THK WAR DOGS arc loose . The average American doesn t know why . Kings by divine right have suddenly plunged half thc world into a campaign of ruin . Race , religion , political and commercial jealousies and the struggle for existence—each has a share in the war that is destined to change the map of Europe as it has not been changed since the days of Napoleon . The battleships and armies foolishness for insuring peace is exploded for all time . We are Americans and have no sides in this foolish , titanic and chaotic struggle that is to end in thc overthrow of kings . ] f we have sympathy to spare , let us save it for the peasants who have slaved and struggled to win an existence that their kings might throw them to the war dogs at a moment s notice . Let our sympathy be with the women who wear wooden shoes and work in the fields while their husbands and sons are shot down that insane and disease rotting dynasties may gain new territory . Whether it be French , B...

Our War Tax [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

Our War Tax AMERICA MUST HELP pay for the European war , too . Thc tax will not hit the producer so much as thc consumer , but we pay . remember that . Just now the metropolitan newspapers , ever ready to take up a popular measure , are looking for some goat to get for the high prices of foods , especially meats , flour and sugar . This is all nonsense . Anyone who thinks for a minute that we can cut America off from the rest of the world and upset the laws of supply and demand in order to keep the prices of food stuffs , clothing and the other necessities of life on the same basis as before half the civilized world was plunged into war is lacking in sense . There is a universal shortage of all classes of meat animals , and prices would probably have touched record marks before the year is out even without war . The cattle shortage at the six leading United States markets for the first six months of the year is 365 , 000 head under receipts for a similar period the year previous , a...

Make Way For Canning Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

Make Way For Canning Clubs THIRTY-ONE STATES are now working along the lines of canning club movement originated in the South some few years ago . Sixteen of these states are in thc South and fifteen in the North and West . This movement , started by Marie Cromer as an auxiliary to the boys corn clubs , originated by the late Seman Knapp for rejuvenating the South agriculturally , has now become a powerful wave that is sweeping through the educational centers of this country and enrolling thousands of girls in country homes . It is making the country girl independent and helping solve the high cost of farm living , taking away the narrowness of farm life and enlisting the hearty co-operation of parents . In an interview with Miss Susie V . Powell of Jackson , Miss ., who is now taking summer work in domestic science at the University of Chicago , the editor of Better Farming learned considerable of this great work from one of the pioneers . Miss Powell is state organizer for Mississ...

Breed the Horse Market Demands [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

Breed the Horse Market Demands « * T * HE HORSE BUSINESS is all shot to pieces I You hear it everywhere , or at least you did * for the past year or more until the war scare came last month . The automobile business received the blame from most people , no one doubting for a minute that this business has driven out the light horse breeder , of course . As to the other types , I am not so sure . The farmers who breed horses do not pay enough attention to market demands . They are still breeding horses instead of breeding heavy drafters , heavy expressers , heavy wagon horses , heavy fire horses , Boston Chunks , mounted police types , army remounts , or any of the dozen or more definite types demanded by a market that often goes begging for the right types of quality and has to sacrifice weight , quality and type oftimes to fill orders . Do you know that until two or three years ago there were practically no auto fire apparatus in the city of Chicago , fire horses whose period of use...

t _ a Ja < £ ¦ How Many Are You Sending to College ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

t _ a Ja &amp;lt; £ ¦ How Many Are You Sending to College ? HOW MANY boys and girls are you sending to colleges , universities and high schools this month ? There is no longer the excuse that it does not pay to educate girls and boys to farm : you know it does pay . Brains and scientific training are needed on the farm , both in the home and on the soil , to succeed now . The pioneer days of free land and rough and tumble methods of breaking , cultivation , breeding and marketing are over . Land is worth from $ 100 to $ 1 , 000 and more per acre , and it must be farmed in a businesslike and scientific way to return profits . Furthermore ^ it must be farmed so as to give the farmer , his wife and his children happiness and a chance to fulfill their ambitions , a chance that will otherwise be sought in the city . You are no longer the farmer who says , I didn t have any education and I own this farm and make a living without any college education to help me . If you were you would...

CAN . ALL YOU CAN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

CAN . ALL YOU CAN . 5 ? J _ H .. m _ (__ Hf rJB % GOOD roads and silos , the two most noticeable marks of awakening on the part of farmers of the country , are handed us from Caesar s time . At least the world-conquering Roman found and developed these two aids to conquest to a point far beyond any rudimentary hints he gained from barbarians and civilized nations before that day . The silage , stored in pit silos and covered with heavy stones in time of plenty , carried the Roman armies to victory in those days . In the last thirty years the silo idea has been revived and the Roman idea extended up into the air to give us our modern silos . The New England states fS FOOT MONOLITHIC CONCRETE SILO started slightly in advance of Michigan and Wisconsin , the first silos having an excavation of three feet or more in the ground and extending a wall of masonry into the air some ten feet or more . There were plenty of rocks in the New England states , and these were utilized in the walls . ...

me ( SltWerdM ^ hrisfi kM [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

me ( SltWerdM ^ hrisfi kM leaves . Usually the edges of the silage are kept two feet higher than the middle and tramped carefully . This keeps thc silage packed well , as thc middle is always firm where the heavier portions drop and pack . COST OF FILLING PER DAY The Iowa station figures it costs $ 54 . 60 per day to fill a silo . Four teams and drivers for $ 16 . 00 , a corn binder , man and team for $ 10 . 00 : a cutter and engine with one man for $ 15 . 00 , two extra men to pilch for $ 5 ; two men in the silo for $ 5 . and thirty gallons of gasoline brings thc total . Thc heating process thc silage goes through requires about ten days , so that any silage fed that time is not silage in the complete sense of thc word , though it may be used . PLACE OF THE SILO The silo is the salvation of the fanner on land valued at $ 200 or more and will enable the American farmer with his corn crop to beat his more intensive European and Asiatic rival in the production of dollars from thc acre...

WHAT I SAW IN LOUISIANA [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

WHAT I SAW IN LOUISIANA By FRANK M . HIGGINS 1 ____________________________________________________________ ______________ _ At the invitation of the Governor of Louisiana , the Editor of BETTER F ARMING had the opportunity to traverse that state last month on a tour of inspection of its vast and practically unrevealed agricultural possibilities . Being unable to go in person , / asked an editorial comrade , Frank M . Higgins , to represent this paper . His report , which follows , reminds me of the pleasure I missed and the pleasure which awaits any reader of BETTER F ARMING who avails himself of Southern hospitality , as shown in the Old Creole State . —Tut . EDITOR . TO one who has not visited the State of Louisiana in the past ten years or kept in touch with her development the resources of this wonderfully fertile state will be a surprise . I confess that my impressions of that part of the country have undergone a complete reversal , for instead of a country of mosquitos , mala...

M /® $ kWWmfiE &amp;amp; Just Living By Prof . Frank Goeder , Colorado College of Agriculture . A middle-aged man sitting on the door steps with a thoughtless expression on • his face was asked the following question : Why do you sit and sit , what arc you doing ? Thc ready reply was , Just living , that is all . Too many people go through the world without seeing the beauty and thc wonderful side of life , but arc just living , seemingly there is nothing that they can do . Why not start to thinking , when there is so much to he done ? Ask yourself some questions and proceed to answer them and be surprised at the outcome . Did you ever stop to think what makes the planets keep moving , and what holds them on their orbits out in thc infinite space ? What causes the vapor to rise when heat is applied to a liquid ? What causes the noise which follows an explosion ? Such questions may be asked by the hundreds , and still to all these there is an answer . How wonderful it is to be ab...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1914

New Interstate Livestock Shipment Order New regulations governing the interstate movement of live stock became effective July 1 , 1914 . These changes are designed by the Department of Agriculture to facilitate the movement of live stock from quarantined areas or from public stockyards . The new regulations , which are known as B . A . I . ( Bureau of Animal Industry ) Order 210 , superseding B . A . I . Order 143 , deal with the shipment of cattle from tick-infected areas , with the movement of swine from public stockyards and with the dipping of cattle and sheep for scabies . Hereafter cattle that have been dipped once under state or federal supervision may be shipped from an area quarantined for ticks to a market center where there are proper dipping facilities and the Department of Agriculture maintains an inspector . After a second dipping there under his supervision the cattle may be sold for any purpose . Hitherto it has been necessary in times of drought for cattle owners in...
