PRESIDENT ' INDORSES PUBLIC SCHOOLS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
PRESIDENT INDORSES PUBLIC SCHOOLS . President Roosevelt has given a silent but pointed answer to all detractors o £ the American Public School system . He has put a quietus upon stories recently circulated that he had discovered that the public schools taught only rubbish , and has given the system the highest praise an American father can give to it—that of intrusting his own children to it for the basis of their education . The President s youngest son , Quintin , has been enrolled on the list of the Force school on Massachusetts avenue , where his brother Archie was a pupil last year .
. MOST PROMISING VTSA-R . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
. MOST PROMISING VTSA-R . The usual seasonable check to activity is noted in most lines . Stock taking , and making needed repairs are quite general . Holiday trade , except at a few points , exceeded all previous records . Cold weather stimulates the demand for dry goods and coal . Pig iron has advanced . Speculation in cotton has put prices to a point which reacts unfavorably on the manufacturing industry . Improved feeling . in iron and steel is a feature , the early recovery in each being rendered possible by the industries being controlled centrally . With war in the Orient , the outlook would be for reduced cotton exports , and it could hardly boom wheat The trade in its broad aspects is Quite encouraging . The new year will begin with great advantages over 1903 . Stocks have gone off an average of nearly one-half in price from the top of the boom , but have regained more than one quarter of the loss . Cotton goods making is less fortunate . Money is easier and bank reserves a...
OBJECTS . OE . THE GRANGE . ' [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
OBJECTS . OE . THE GRANGE . It is doubtful if a better , more concise statement of the objects of the Grange has ever been published than that made by Col . A . B . Smedley , one of the masters of the Iowa State Grange . He enumerates them thus : The ennoblement of labor , and the fraternity of the producing classes . , Mutual instruction , and the lightening of labor by diffusing a better knowledge of its aims . Social culture , as also mental and moral development . Mutual relief in sickness and adversity . The prevention of litigation . Prevention of cruelty to animals . Bringing more nearly together the producer and consumer . The overthrow of the credit system . Building up and fostering our home industries . Mutual protection • to husbandmen against sharpers and middlemen .
THE ANCIENT AND MODERN YEAR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
THE ANCIENT AND MODERN YEAR . The Athenians began the year in June , the Macedonians in September , the Romans first in . March and afterwardsun . January , the Persians on August 11 , the ancient Mexicans on February 23 , the Mohammedans in July , The Chinese year which begins early in February , is similar to the Mohammedan in having twelve months of twenty-nine , and thirty days , alternately , but in every nineteen years there are seven years which have thirteen months . This is not quite correct and the Chinese have , therefore , formed a cycle of sixty years , in which period twenty-two intercalary months occur .
John D . Rockefeller , Jr ., says : [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
John D . Rockefeller , Jr ., says : To tight the battle alone is to oe lost . Association with others is an absolute necessity if we would be successful . In union there is strength and success . . We can see this illustrated every day in the business world . Reference to the business world at present does not include the farmers . Everybody knows that they are not doing business on thorough business principles . But is it not time that they get in the business world ? What ls good for one class of people who produce , manufacture and sell , ought to be good for others . If in union there is strength and success for Rockefeller and his associates , why would it not mean strength and success for the farmers ?
TRADE WITH NEW POSSESSIONS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
TRADE WITH NEW POSSESSIONS . . Commerce between the United States and its newly acquired territory is growing with remarkable rapidity . In 1897 , the year preceding that in which Porto Rico , Hawaii and the Phillippines , came under the American flag , the shipments to those islands were , according to the . figures of the Treasury Bureau of Statistics , $ 6 , 773 , 560 . In 1901 ,, they were over $ 30 , 0 . 00 , 000 , and now they are , according to the best figures that we can obtain , fully $ 40 , 000 , 000 . To this may be added the estimate of $ 15 , 000 , 000 of shipments to Alaska per year . This would bring the total sales of American goods in the noncontiguous territory of the United States aboye ; - $ 50 , 000 , 000 in the fiscal year , against about $ 10 , 000 , 000 in that same territory iu 1 S 97 .
