High Prices and Why [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

High Prices and Why MAY WHEAT hit $ 1 . 25 ; it » lu 1 ? ^ Cattle reached $ 10 . 60 per hundred ; look for $ 12 . 00 before they quit going up . Hogs have been up to $ 10 . 75 recently ; they will likely go to $ 11 . SO or $ 1 ? 00 These are facts , facts which no federal or citv probe * of packing concerns , provisioned and middlemen in general will materially affect . There arc reasons , and sound reasons , for them . So why rave ? The world s meat shortage is really acute . Well informed men have known this for several years , and began preaching to check the waning beef supply . Their educational work has not been rapid enough , however , and today every country of the world is an importer of beef but the South American republics . Their day will come if the great holdings of cheaply acquired lands are broken up , as they undoubtedly will be . It is inevitable . There are only so many acres of habitable land on the face of this earth . As this land is taken by the settler , no m...

Little Things That Count [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

Little Things That Count IT WAS LITTLE things that started the great war now sweeping Europe . Little acts , words ami movements often develop into astounding revolutions , movements and results . It is a little thing to save a few bushels of seed corn every September , another little thing to see that it is dried and stored properly , and still another little thing to test every ear by the germination test before planting the corn in the spring ; yet the doing of these little things by every American farmer would add at least a quarter of a billion dollars annually to their wealth . It is such a little thing to test the cows and see if they are paying for their keep , merely the weighing of the milk from each animal at each milking , and testing for fat percentage once a month ; yet were every cow in the United States so tested , we could get as much milk from half the cows , half the stable room , and use only half the feed , while having a great deal of the time spent on milking ...

* 5 * « J * J * The Movie in the Schoolhouse THE MOVING PICTURE machine has finally come to the country school . It was inevitable that it should get into the educational movement , of course . Now that it has come , it is inevitable that its use in rural and city school , high school and college is to be far reaching and wonderfully stimulating in imparting knowledge of all kinds . Agriculture , geography , history , art , botany , zoology , physiology , and all other studies that enter into the education of our boys and girls , will be affected and stimulated . Think of the changes in the little red schoolhouse ! The country schools are really going to get moving pictures , and right away , too . Wisconsin has 400 , 000 slides subscribed for this year against New Yorks 215 , 000 . A series of thirtyfive sets of slides and films , covering art , history , bird-lore and industrial activity , as well as Alice s Adventures in Wonderland , are being sent out on the rounds of the countr...

. * j » _ * Give Farm Women Their Share [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

. * j » _ * Give Farm Women Their Share FARM WOMEN are entitled to a share ot tne money given the states for educational demonstration work through the Smith-Lever bill , but recently passed . They will have to insist on getting a share of this money— $ 10 , 000 the first year with annual increases to a certain point—or they will not get it . In other words , they v / ill have to show that they are interested enough in helping themselves to demand government aid . Surely , there is no question about this ; this warning is a reminder that they must be on the job , however . Women on the farm , the busy women who bear the brunt of the farm problems , summer and winter , year after year , uncomplainingly , have not time to take a personal hand in demanding aid . Club women , farm publication editors , county superintendents and women who are behind leading movements of all kinds for the uplift of women , will have to carry the banners forward until the ranks are filled and the women wh...

A New Hog Cholera Treatment [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

A New Hog Cholera Treatment THE URINE of cholera sick hogs may be used in immunizing serum for vaccination against hog cholera , according to a new and important work recently published in Germany . Dr . Kurt Schern , in charge of veterinary research at the Iowa State College , Ames , Iowa , has had a large part in this work , and veterinarians and others interested may have full information about the work by writing Dr . Schern . The cost of serum is sure to be materially reduced by this discovery , as the amount produced from each hog is about doubled by the new way , and the scrum is equally as good as that manufactured under the old methods . Valuable facts as to the resisting power of hog cholera virus have also been disclosed , meat of slaughtered animals which has been stored in cool rooms for thirty-three days showing juices still virulent . The simultaneous treatment is not used in Germany , according to Dr . Schern , as every simultaneous treatment for hog cholera is dange...

World ' s Greatest Herd Gone [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

World s Greatest Herd Gone F ORT WORTH , Kansas City ami Chicago markets recently received some 200 , 000 head of cattle from the famous Tcrrazas herd in Mexico . Some three hundred thousand cattle from theTcrrazas ranch go to the ranges of the Southwest , though the class of cattle are poor , having been picked over for the past two years by the warring factions of Mexico . A pool of Texas stockmen recently paid $ 750 , 000 for 50 , 000 from this herd . Thus passes the world s greatest herd of cattle from a country which before the wars stamped out a great industry , was a source of immense wealth and agricultural possibilities in our southern neighbor . The rebels are making the sales , turning over tn the Terrazas family only thirty ner cent of the cash received , it is understood , thus allowing them to save a small slice of their fortunes . The Terrazas estate was once some 200 miles square and Luis Terrazas , the head of the family , was recognized as the worlds greatest landh...

The Mule in History [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

The Mule in History By Henry Watterson . IN WAR the mule plays with high credit the role of Kipling s Gunga Din . He is bullyragged . He is blasphemed . He is belabored . But he is always on hand when needed , and he is always needed . Motor trucks may serve the column in ihe rear , where roads are hard and smooth , but ihe mule must be depended upon in the field . In peace he is sportive . His humor is sometimes mistaken for spitefulness when he kicks a wellmeaning farmer into a protracted sojourn at a hospital or sends his soul sky winding into the hereafter with his body not far behind . But when it comes to pulling a load , uphill or on the level , subsisting upon a limited menu , and starving the veterinarian , he puts it all over his handsomer and more aristocratic cousin , the horse . Wherever the footing meets the requirements of an able-bodied goat the mule can go and is willing to tote his load . His hide is tough and weatherproof , and his expectancy of life is higher tha...

Does The Farmer Know "Where He Is At ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

Does The Farmer Know Where He Is At ? Not long ago an observing gentleman > aid , What is there that everybody thinks they know about , need most and yet know the least ? This seemed like some sort f a riddle , so I asked how many answers were permitted . But the one who smilingly put the question was none the less seriiis , so I said , I m the goat , what is it ? His reply was laconically given as bookkeeping . And it is true . Not only is it most needed on the farm , as the national government has recognized by publishing a bulletin to that effect by Dr . Thompson , but it is one of the most needed of arts among the supposedly wise commercial world . There are as many desirable improvements in the bookkeeping of the business world as there are in the farm and any bookkeeper or merchant who thinks he knows all there is to be known ¦ ihout the subject , would better grow busy ¦ Mid begin to learn all over again .

J * J * .. » Why Missouri Loves War [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

J * J * .. » Why Missouri Loves War MULE PRICES are up fifty per cent in the last three weeks and Missouri farmers are jubilant . War did it . War may be what General Sherman said it was , but not in Missouri . The Missourians remember the days of the Boer war , when British gold was poured into their laps for the pick of their mule stables . Now agents of the French a ! i 1 Brit , sn markets are invading Missouri , and all they have to do is to set the prices if they have the kind of mules the agents want to pull British and French gun carriages and provision wagons . Mules are better than government bonds these days . Horses are good , and a great many thousand head of cavalry animals will be bought , OH SAY ! GET OFF THE TRACK but mules , big-boned , sound mules , are what European armies want of our Show Me friends . Mules will wear twice as long as horses and eat only half as much as horses ; therefore mules for the army . Tip to the auto agents : Hustle over into Missouri .

^ Wkc / Not Steep ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1914

^ Wkc / Not Steep ? WEVE farmed away from sheep in the last hundred years . It is a mistake , too . Wolves and dogs and Democrats have killed the sheep business . This is the way an old-timer in the business of raising sheep put the answer to me recently . He didn t seem to be worried about the situation at all ; merely voicing a deep-seated prejudice against the three things which are supposed to be so inimical to the sheep industry that it has no chance , free wool , of course , being the dread blight the Democrats brought on . In fact , this breeder was going ahead planning for sheep as though they were moneymakers . He was just completing one of the finest barns in the country , and this barn was a sheep barn , 148 feet square . Allowing the dog and wolf curses a large place in the hindering of sheep breeding in this country , we are face to face with the fact that it is prejudice and ignorance more than anything else that keeps us from growing sheep . Sheep should be as common ...
