OUR COUNTRY'S GROWTH IN WBALTH . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
OUR COUNTRYS GROWTH IN WBALTH . The wealth of the United States has Increased from about $ 7 , 000 , 000 , 000 in 1850 to about $ 100 , 000 , 000 , 000 . The per capita wealth has increased since 1850 from $ 300 to $ 1 , 300 . The production of the country has increased at a like amazing : ratio ; for example : In the year 1800 the country produced 155 , 000 bales of cotton ; in the year 1900 it produced 9 , 500 , 000 bales . In 1840 the whole country produced 35 , 000 , 000 pounds of wool ; , in 1901 it produced over 300 , 000 , 000 pounds .

THE GREAT DEAD OF 1903 . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
THE GREAT DEAD OF 1903 . The retrospect of every year shows a mournful list of the eminent dead , but the necrology of 1903 in nearly every department of the world s work is exceptional . A 41 have suffered heavily , music , the arts , and literature perhaps the most . The world of politics and statesmanship has lost Senor Sagasta , one of the ablest and most eloquent of the Spanish premiers , whose services to his country virtually ended with the accession of the present king , Alfonso XIII . ; Abram S . Hewitt and Andrew H . Green , who , in one sense , might be termed the premiers of New York City ; Henry L . Dawes , the veteran Massachusetts senator ; and Lord Salisbury , the British premier , successor to Gladstone . Royalty has suffered little loss . By the cruel tragedy in Servia its king and queen ,- Alxander and Draga , were killed , and with them the premier , the minister of the interior , and an ex-minister of war , but there have been no other deaths in high royal circl...
MEN OF THE HOUR . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
MEN OF THE HOUR . The wonderful and extraordinary advances made during the last twelve months in many channels of science all over the world , bringing forth marvelous inventions and discoveries that hereafter will increase the wealth and benefit the people of both continents ; the marked progressiveness and aggressiveness of the governments of the United States and Europe , as boldly manifested by their chief and reigning representatives , together with many other interesting and important things that have happended during this period of time , puts this busy world of ours in a thinking frame of mind as to what we may expect the coming new year to bring forth to surpass the notable occurences of the dead 1903 . Greater and more wonderful things , however , are expected and looked for by most men for 1904 , but it would be idle to attempt to name even a small proportion of the events which may befall during the coming twelve months . It is , however , quite within the bounds of poss...
SUCCESSFUL MEN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
SUCCESSFUL MEN . We have fallen under a universal witchcraft . A sense of the power and luxury in money , beyond all the won-dev-tales , has suddenly come to us . It has turned our fashionable society into a materialism which is no longer ashamed of its poverty or ideals . It is hard and merciless at heart ; it is sceptical of unworldly motives ; its smartest relish is for the strokes and ruses of the manipulators of finance . In times like these , it is good to remember Agassiz , who refused to lecture at $ 500 a night because he was too busy to make money ; Charles Sumner , who declined to lecture at any price because , he said , as senator all his time belonged to Massachusetts ; SpurgeorT , who recused to come to . America to deliver fifty lectures at $ 1 , 000 a night , saying he could do better—he could stay in London and try to save fifty souls ; and Emerson , who steadfastly declined to increase his income beyond $ 1 , 200 because he wanted his time to thini :. Such stories ...

FOLLOWING UP INQUIRIES . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 January 1904
FOLLOWING UP INQUIRIES . Mr . F . A . Southwlck writes in Agricultural Advertising : Of all places for the exercise of care and judicious thinking , the follow up system offers the best opportunity . Even more Important than good advertising is a good and intelligent system of keeping after the prospective purchasers . Almost any sort of publicity will bring inquiries of some sort , and he who can take those inquiries and convert them into orders is a servant worthy of his hire . Assuming that advertising has been properly done , the first results looked for are inquiries or answers . It is not always possible to look for orders as a result of the appearance of the ad . In some cases , of course , lt is the rule , but In most the advertiser merely seeks an Introduction to the possible customer by his advertising , trusting to subsequent work to land the order . Right here I want to trot out my hobby that the ad should not only perform the office of introducer , but it should also co...
