PROSPERITY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1903

PROSPERITY . All wise and discerning citizens of the United States should take pleasure In knowing that neighboring countries are sharing in the general prosperity of which our land is the chief center . From Canada on the north and from Mexico on the south come many indications of industrial , commercial and agricultural progress . Our latest protege , the republic of Cuba , is evidently entering upon a similar course of material advancement . . The prosperity of the United States . is- due , in the first place , to the character of the people and the nature of their institutions . It is due in a lesser measure to a public policy that has promoted the symmetrical development of all the country s resources , so that the farmer , on the one hand , and the manufacturer , on the other , find the home market always an ample and profitable one , with the foreign market by comparison a small and incidental affair . The tremendous prosperity of the United States , —as shown in a material d...

THE MIGHTY WEST . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1903

THE MIGHTY WEST . General Nelson A . Miles writes : It was my good fortune to witness the transformation of the mighty West . I have viewed much of it on horseback and have traversed the zones now occupied by the Canadian , the Great Northern , the Northern Pacific , the Rio Grande and Oregon Short Line , the Union and Central Pacific , the Santa Fe route and the Southern Pacific . I have seen the pioneer and the home-builder supplant the savage and the lawless . In my recent journeys across the continent I was more than ever impressed with the underlying wisdom and tranquil virility of the people . They do not want war ; they want peace . I have traveled far in foreign lands and observed the people of many countries . I have had excellent opportunities to know the people of my own country and am gratified to say that a more intelligent , thoughtful , patriotic people can not be found on the face of the globe than the people of our western states and territories .

3 'IIE CANAL AND THE RAILROADS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1903

3 IIE CANAL AND THE RAILROADS . There is a chance that the transcontinental railroads , in working against tlie Isthmian canal , are opposing their own interests . As the water route , even with the short cut across the isthmus , would be far slower than the railroads , the latter would get most of the traffic between the two coasts In any case . They would get it even though the water freight rates were ° aiy a small fraction of that by tie overland route . This , of course , is a * P « lnt which most of the railroad men keep ln mind , it is possible , Indeed , that the canal would make new business for the railroads . To the extent which the short waterway would aid in building up the Pacific coast it would increase the traffic between the two sides of the continent , and naturally make more work for the roads as well as for the canal . An increase of population means an increase of traffic , and part of this growth would go to the railroads . The steamboat men imagined that when ...

Bicnell , who has given special attention to the Argentina country , makes the following report with , reference to the United States chances for business in that country : Because Argentina is a long distance from the United States and the people strange to us , we should not be frightened and hesitate to reach out for a business that is so simple and that has earned such handsome profits for others . There is nothing to fear in taking stock to Argentina to sell if the animals are right . They should without fail be tested for tuberculosis before leaving home , for they will be subjected to the tuberculin test there at the end of the forty days quarantine , and , if they react , showing that they have the disease , they will have to be slaughtered or removed from the country ...

The fact that twenty-five million dollars worth of goat skins are now annually imported into the United States , and that her enterprising manufacturers are obliged to send half way around the world for a large share of them , suggests that tho farmers of the country have a great opportunity to put a large share of this sum into their pockets .

GOOD ROADS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1903

GOOD ROADS . While the people of this country have been expending their energies and means in constructing the best system of railroads upon the earth , there has been little attention given to building highways according to modern Ideas . There has been no adequate system for maintaining them , and their condition In this age of general development and improvement is a disgrace to a civilized nation . It seems to be settled beyond argument that the public roads in this country are to be improved . Argument is all on the affirmative side , and there is no opposition . The only question to settle is of ways and means , and the attention of the people is being directed to national aid to road improvement as outlined in the Brownlow bill . In countries that are famed for their good roads their general government is a large factor in their generaf management . Nearly a hundred years ago our National Government was engaged ln projecting ! and building extensive systems of public highways...

FOREIGN MARKETS FOR FARM PRODUCTS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1903

FOREIGN MARKETS FOR FARM PRODUCTS . At the recent meeting of the National Farmers Congress , Mr . James Wood read a paper entitled , How Can we Enlarge our Foreign Markets for Farm Products ? He said in part : This is an important subject , and likely to be of greater importance in the future . Some political economists think that some day home consumption Will equal production and that there will be no need to consider foreign markets . These political economists look only at one side of the question . Increased population will result in increased production . One of the bad effects of the homestead law has been to cause poor cultivation of land everywhere . The homestead law has done this in two ways—by opening to the plow a vast area of virgin soil and by making proprietors out of most of our farm laborars . I congratulate the country on the fact that the supply of available public lands is now . nearly eA a « ste 4 .- ** Already _ the result of this is becoming apparent . The ti...
