The Test [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

The Test By EDMUND VANCE COOKE . What is a failure ? It s only a spur To the man who receives it right , And it makes ihe spirit within him stir To go in once more and fight . If you never have failed it s an even guess You have never won a high success . What is a missf Ifs a practice shot Which we often must make to enter The list of those who can hit the spot Of the bull s-eye in the center .

The Real Santa Claus THE picture which adorns our front cover this month is the old boy that makes Christmas possible for all of us . He is the able-bodied American farmer who brings his big basket to the market at the year s end and asks the world to help itself to the good things which bountiful nature has provided . Call us what you please , Uncle Rube , Uncle Eli , we homespun folk that live on the land and produce the largest proportion of the nations wealth are THE PEOPLE . Talk about captains of industry , one might think that they all belonged to the trades , engaged in manufacture and transportation and merchandizing .

vS dm ilm Moral Contagions [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

vS dm ilm Moral Contagions The country last month was paralized by the fear of an invading host which threatened serious loss to the live stock industry . The dread foot and mouth disease was discovered in various places almost simultaneously and heroic measures were instantly taken by the State and Federal authorities to extirpate it before it gained a firm foothold . We are all familiar with the methods pursued and approve of them though the cost has already run into the millions of dollars . But the energetic measures taken to stamp out this costly contagion among our animal herds suggests the query why we are so indifferent to plagues , even more deadly to human life . We cannot begin to measure , in fact no figures that might be proposed could exaggerate , the frightful yearly toll laid upon the human family because of tuberculosis , which is largely a contagious disease . If society were as much concerned to preserve its members from this deadly scourage as it is to defend its...

Jl Jl Jl Kansas is Crazy Again [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

Jl Jl Jl Kansas is Crazy Again WE MIGHT have said merely , Kansas is crazy , but on second thought , it struck us that it didn t convey the crazy idea far enough . You see , Kansas has been crazy from the start , was born crazy , grew up crazy , and gets crazier as it gets older . Kansas became known as a crazy place at the time of the John Brown affair . It was crazier when it prohibited the sale of liquor—and made it work ! It was crazy some more when Carrie Nation came out of the state of tumble weeds and prairie dogs and used her little hatchet to smash saloon windows . It took another decided fit of craziness when it began throwing the old and established order of politics out the window and putting honest and efficient men into office to run the state for the benefit of the people who paid the taxes . The reason for the caption , and the excuse for the editorial now , is that Kansas has broke loose again . This time the state is getting out text books and selling them to the p...

JI Jl JI War Will Soon Help Farm Help Problem [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

JI Jl JI War Will Soon Help Farm Help Problem > NOW IS THE TIME for wide-awake farmers to solve their farm help problems . Thousands of war victims are eager to escape starvation and get to America . The Belgians are homeless and without a country , and will continue to be in worse straights until war is over . Even then , they may be no better off for a country . Already newspapers and societies are arranging to bring over the best class of immigrants from Belgium . The Chicago Tribune is conducting a campaign to find homes for Belgian orphans in good American homes . Thousands are asking for a boy , a girl , a mother and child , or more where they can afford it , and think that both parties will be gainers by this plan of adoption . There is no thriftier class in Europe than the Belgians . They were born stockmen and intensive and co-operative farmers . Our farms could gain no better class of people to aid us in developing the kind of agriculture we want . We know of th...

Jl Jt Jl Christmas ! [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

Jl Jt Jl Christmas ! CHRISTMAS , the day the Christian world pays honor to Christ by observing His birthday , is again with us . Gifts to friends and loved ones and religious exercises will again mark the passing of this holiday . Possibly the gifts will not be so costly in money this year as usual ; many will be very simple , in fact The day , however , will have deeper meaning , and bring more thought of its meaning than usual . Gifts will not be weighed so much by their actual value as by the thought that actuated their sending . The world is thinking more serious thoughts than usual ; even we in the United States , isolated from hunger and destruction , are taking our responsibilities more seriously . We are trying to help those less fortunate who need help . The spirit of the Christmas ship , sent abroad to carry food , clothing , toys and other necessities and luxuries to those without a Santa Clause , because of war , is typical . The boys and girls of country schools who can...

A Christmas Story [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

A Christmas Story By Fredk L . Chapman Editor of Better Fanning NOW had kept me in the mountains . I had gone West in middle December to take account of stock on our big ranch and to find whether the year s work would stand to the good or end in loss . Stock meant sheep . The fall weather had been fine and the bands had been left to graze far up in the foothills— up higher than usual . To count part of them—1 , 800 , more or less , we had to follow them clear to the snow line , where they were parked on a green slope whose single exit to the open valley was a steep and narrow canon , whose walls were so naked and precipitous that not even a jack pine , most persistent and audacious of mountain flora , could find an anchorage of soil for its searching tendrils . It was the shortest day and the longest night of the year—four days before Christmas . Our work must be finished speedily to catch No . 16 on the day following to keep holy tryst with the family Christmas eve . They were 1 , ...

Wheat is the War Cry [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1914

Wheat is the War Cry Canada Heeds Britain s Clamor for More By Severin Stanley Clan FOR several decades , wheat and Western Canada were almost synonymous terms . The prairies of Manitoba , Saskatchewan and Alberta for many years kept on raising wheat above , ground and { Cain below . Wheat was king , mighty and unquestioned . There were rumblings that wheat robbed the soil , but what was that ? Land was new , rich and cheap , and there were millions of acres of it . Slowly though , as the cheaper lands became better settled and the prices rose , the sentiment against wheat began to gain headway . A > The Swan River Valley , the Prince Albert district and the country tributary to North Battleford are the best livestock and dairying districts in Western Canada , but even here the farmers are responding to the call of wheat . Not that livestock and dairying are forgotten , but many thousands of acres lying idle have been plowed this fall for wheat . It all started with the a...
