This Month [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
This Month What do you think of Better Farming this month ? * * * Fill out the year by striking a balance and planning to turn over some clean , new leaves for the New Year . • * * Personally , we think the Buy-a-Bull movement , started by the Arkansas Live Stock Association , will do a lot more to help the South out of the rut than the B uy-a-Bale movement . » * * What kind of water , heat , fuel , light , drainage and fresh air supplies have you ? Are they the best you can have ? The country cemeteries are full of graves , opened for those who fell victims to ignorance and neglect in these matters . « * « Don t worry about eating beef , pork or mutton—if you can afford it—as there is no danger from foot-and-mouth disease if the meat is well cooked . The meat that goes through the packing houses will , of course , not carry the disease , as the inspectors will condemn such . « • » Do you realize that Poultry is one of the biggest money making departments of farming .

The Old Year and The New [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
The Old Year and The New Bv ACNES MONTGOMERY . With solemn mien and feeble step The Old Year turns away ; His eye is dimmed , his step infirm , His flowing beard is gray . What need has he for future toil ? Dulled is his scythe s keen blade , He bears ¦ within his arm a sheaf , The souls of monarch , serf , and chief , Of matron , man , and maid . He brought to earth a joyous smile , But in his garnered sheaf He bears full many a perished hope , The faded flower and leaf . He bore to earth a million souls , As many he bears away ; If grief he gave , he garnered grief , If thorn he slew , he took the rose His labor to repay . As midnight bells ring out the hour The stilly silence through , They toll the dirge for the vanished year , And the welcome to the new . Then ring , O bells , and welcome give To the youthful , glad New Year ; Tho the rose be tempered with the thorn Or watered by a tear . _ ji .

Love Is Omnipotent [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
Love Is Omnipotent THE closing year and the coming year win have a big page in history . It will not be alone because the greatest of world wars was fought and finished . It must be finished before the new year ends or the whole worlds order will break under the colossal catastrophy . But a greater thing is happening . Above the hoarse cry of battle , we hear the clear voice of Reason , and Reason says firmly that when this world riot ends it will be the end of war forever There can be no other conclusion . Selfpreservation is the first law of Nature . The race will preserve itself from extinction and it will preserve its work which has been centuries building Civilization with its monuments is no tower of Babel that can be arrested or toppled over by confusion of tongues or confusion of counsels . The Slav the Teuton , the Gaul , the Saxon have no nroorietory right to dominate or to precipitate ot Anarchy . The human race is the sole trustee this planet , and out of every kingdom ,...
A Plea for Better Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
A Plea for Better Farmers IN HIS ANNUAL REPORT , which has just been issued , David F . Houston , Secretary of Agriculture , has broken the custom of discoursing at length on department matters and has , instead , given to the country a stirring appeal for better farms and a more wholesome rural life . The bulk of the report is consequently given over to a study of the economic problems of the farm and recommendations of measures by which the farming business in particular and rural life in general can be placed on a firmer basis . The secretary recommends a change in the administering of national forests in the undeveloped sections , so that they will yield at once revenue that can be applied to local development which will further assist communities and aid in the settlement of the territory . Under this plan the department , instead of waiting until timber is actually sold before the unsettled counties gain any revenue from this part of the public domain will underwrite its proan...
. A A Hello ! The Meanest Man is Here [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
. A A Hello ! The Meanest Man is Here SOME FELLOW with an eye to the filthy lucre is going to spoil Mrs . Jones and Mrs . Smith s life out on their farms . What do you think he has done , Invented a cutoff affair for rural phone lines so that a person talking can keep all the neighbors from listening . Why , the very ideal Awful , isnt it ? But that s not all of this new thing-a-magtg he has nude and is going to clamp onto our phones . If any of us want to take down the receiver to find out if Mrs . Johnson is really going to order a new parlor sofa now that her Gertrude is taking piano lessons and wearing her hair up , why , there is a buzzer , or something on the new fangled phone that tells who it is that is listening I Why , what are we going to do , exclaims Mrs . Eavesdropper . Except on wash days , when I have to be out in the summer kitchen getting the clothes out , I never miss a word over our line , and it is so friendly like to be able to sit way out here at home and stil...
Farm Hands to Order at Last [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
Farm Hands to Order at Last THE GOVERNMENT is going to take a hand in the finding and distribution of farm hands for Mississippi valley farmers . Thanks ! It s about time . The annual waste of time and labor every year in the harvesting of our grain crops is an economic crime . Every year , bankers , railroad executives and boomers send up a mighty howl for 10 , 000 , or 50 , 000 , or 100 , 000 harvest hands for a certain state or section of a state to harvest the bumper crops that are threatening to swamp the farmers who are offering $ 3 to $ 5 per day and begging for hands . There follows a rush to the spots gaining the most publicity , regardless of season of ripening that sweeps from south to north , and thousands of college students , floating laborers and just plain hobos jamb certain points and beg for work , while other sections are short of labor . The men who want work are compelled to work at wages far short of those advertised , and then get work on ! . / spasmodically ,...
AAA Up From Slavery [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
AAA Up From Slavery WHETHER OR NOT the race question will ever be solved has nothing to do with this editorial . We wish merely to call the attention of the readers to the marked advance that the black brother has made and is making since the days of slavery . The low literacy census of southern states in the past was laid to the large colored population in the past . Now it is found that the poor white trash in these states is responsible for more of this illiteracy than is the negro . The negro is slowly and steadily working his way out , and education is doing it . Vocational schools for the colored boys and girls is the greatet asset that this movement has had . Last year a colored graduate of one of these schools won the prize from all Missouri for the largest acre yield of corn . In spite of the drought , over 108 bushels of corn were produced from an acre . N . C . Bruce s colored boys at the Bartlett Agricultural and Industrial School for Negroes at Dalton , Missouri , made ...
More Co-opearation Certain [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1915
More Co-opearation Certain WE AMERICANS are going , to be more brother !}/ in giving helping hands in the future . The Smith-Lever bill is giving this movement a mighty impetus , but it takes the great war to bring home to most of us the necessity of such a spirit if we are to even begin to reap the advantages this war is to give us . The buy-a-bale-of-cotton movement , started in the South to aid the southern tanner whose crop was cut off from , 60 % of its normal market by the war , is a striking example of brotherhood in modern intsiness . The banding together into trade societies of merchants and manufacturers in their campaigns to be inaugurated for business opening * in Sou * America is another splendid business example . The banks are already leaders in the co-operative idea . So are the railroads to a greater or less degree ; German and English business men have been leaders fn the worlds marts because of the team worw methods they have punned in capturing foreign business ....
