WHY PURE BREEDS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899
WHY PURE BREEDS . Notwithstanding all that has been said about the advantages accruing to the man who keeps pure bred stock it is a lamentable fact that there are but a few flocks in this country , comparatively , that are pure bred . This is true not only of the west , but of the east also . The great majority of sheep breeder * seem to Ignore the fact that the pure breefjj are more profitable ln every vayVtan common grades . It takes \ ^ y ~ less rUad to produce a hundred pounds of mu . ifm on the carcass of a pure bred sheep or of wool on Its back than it does to produce the same quantity . on a grade , and yet the grades are the « rule and pure bred flocks the exception . There Is one universal excuse for the presence of grade sheep on the farm . This is the cost of a pure bred 1 / ?! flock . This . excuse is not a valid one , for many men have spent enough money in the purchase of pure bred j * y rams to have bought the foundation ¦ * (\ a- , for a flock to take the place of th...

ADVERTISING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899
ADVERTISING . Mr . J . W . Thompson writes : Advertising is the electricity of modern business , a time and labor saver , an anniWlator of distance and the means through which a man may gain -wealth In a-few years , which formerly took a lifetime . Experimenting advertising is costly and unnecessary . In addition to what Mr . Thompson writes it-is well to remind the breeders of Jersey cattle , Berkshire swine , Southdown sheep and poultry that they can be saved from unprofitable experiments by placing their advertisements in Tho Farm Home . It is well known by well posted breeders , that The Farm Home reaches more owners and prospective buyers of Jersey cattle , Berkshire swine and Southdown sheep than any other paper pub ] -shed . Tg j results from advertising demonstn Je the fact stated above .

BERKSHIRE ITEMS FOR NOVEM -BEK . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899
BERKSHIRE ITEMS FOR NOVEMBEK . This is ( or should be ) the Berkshire breeders busy month . Between the getting ready for winter and the breeding of the sows for those early litters , he will not have any time to discuss the Philippine war or swap lies at the corner- , grocery . If he should happen to wake up some morning , ( say about five or half past ) , and hear the wind howling and the beautiful snow splashing against the window , I wonder would he think of that sow and litter , or those shcats lying out in the snow in the corner of the fence shivering , or Would he turn over , and take another nap and dream of the prizes he was going to wln » next year at the State Fair . Better look well to all the little things that go to make the herd comfortable . See that their bed is dry as well as clean . That there are no drafts of cold air through the sleeping pen . A pig will take cold as easy as a man and will not get over It half as easy . He may not grumble much , but he does not ...

SOMETHING ORIGINAL ^ [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899
SOMETHING ORIGINAL ^ In writing an advertisement do not follow the old and well-worn styles . Do not look up the papers to see how somebody else did lt . Do not crib any other man s ideas . Go ahead on your own hook with something original , and you cannot do better probably than to write lt as you would talk it . Take at least a month to do the writing ln . Get up a series of advertisements , and then select the best of them . Keep on writing and weeding out until you have something of credit . If you can not do it , then employ somebody who can , and remember all the time that a wellwritten advertisement may be the making of your business while a poorly constructed one will likely do you more harm than benefit .
MATlNtfiTHEJ BREEDING PEN [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899
MATlNtfiTHEJ BREEDING PEN FOR 1900 . For The Farm Home .
