Harden their shoulders by a wash of salt and water . * * * Cut out the old canes from the berry bushes ; trim up the trees ; get ready for that bonfire and the spring clean-up . * * * Politics or even war will have little chance when spring plowing starts and keeps the farmer s mind and muscles busy . * * * Buy some sheep . • This is a good month to get some good grades and turn them loose on the corners and weedy pastures next summer . * * * Spring lambs are coming now .

"Opportunity " [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
Opportunity BY WALTER MALONE . They do me wrong , who say I come no more , When once I knock and fail to find you in ; For every day I stand outside your door And bid you wake and rise to fight and win . Wail not for precious chances passed away , Weep not for golden ages on the wane , Each night I burn the records of the day , At sunrise every soul is born again . Laugh like a boy at splendors that have fled , To vanished joys be blind and deaf and dumb , My judgments seal the dead past with its dead , But never bind a moment yet to come . Though deep in mire , wring not your hands and weep , I lend my arm to all who say lean , No shame-faced outcast ever sank so deep But yet might rise and be again a man . Art thou a mourner ? Rouse thee from the spell . Art thou a sinner ? Sins may be forgiven , Each morning gives thee wings to fly . from hell , Each night a start to guide thy feet to heaven . Jl J JI

JA A * A * America First [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
JA A * A * America First THESE ARE DAYS of deep fear as our eyes follow the flag of the nation through treacherous seas of diplomacy . In spite of our anxious forebodings , it is exhilarating to see with what practical unanimity 100 , 000 , 000 people commit their precious heritage to the care of their leader , in whose integrity , fidelity , courage and wisdom they have unstinted faith . It is true that there are a few like Vardaman and Hitchcock » who for personal spite will try to thwart his plans , and others like Lodge and Smoot who , for partisan advantage , will try to embarrass him ; but the peoples voice and the peoples prayers are behind him . Be we Republicans , Democrats , Progressives , or of whatever party allegiance we may be , we are for America to a man , and Woodrow Wilson is our man and captain in this hour of peril . But what shall be done with those pernicious agents of foreign powers who are abusing our hospitality at this moment by dividing our house against i...
vk _ . _ . Read The Signs [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
vk _ . _ . Read The Signs HAVE YOU ANY IDEA of how good an investments live stock , especially cows , are and have been the past few years ? You thought real estate , gold , oil , railroad bonds , or anything else you happened to be lucky in picking was the best investment you could find for your money , didn t you ? Of course , you recall that beef has been getting scarce and naturally a steer on the hoof must be worth more than it formerly was , in spite of the assertion of some people that the middleman gets all the profit and the farmer gets no more than formerly . Still you had no idea that the nice red heifer ( only an average beast ) you had a chance to buy for $ 35 . 70 in 1910 is now worth $ 53 . 94 , to say nothing of what she hds been producing in milk and calves during these last three years you might have owned her . Beefs better than diamonds for advancing profits while you are asleep . These are the facts th . it are shown by the United States Department of Agricultur...
tf a ? tf Extra Dry ! [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
tf a ? tf Extra Dry ! KANSAS , the original dyed-in-the-wool prohibition state , is dry ; yes , extra dry . Of course , it has killed business in Kansas to go dry and stay dry as it has . Here are a few figures that show how prohibition that is enforced has ruined that state : In 87 of the 105 counties in Kansas there are no insane . There are no feebleminded in 54 counties . There are no inebriates in 94 counties . Thirty-eight of the county poor houses are empty . Fifty-three of the county jails were recently empty , and 65 counties could boast no contributions to the state penitentiary . There are less than 600 paupers in the state . Some counties have not called a grand jury to try a criminal case in ten years . Recently Kansas had over $ 200 , 000 , 000 in the banks . The farmers own more than $ 225 , 000 , 000 in live stock . In one year the people have added $ 45 , 000 , 000 in taxable property . Only 2 per cent of the population is illiterate . The mortality rate has dropped...
Get a Cork Leg [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
Get a Cork Leg THE HIGHWAY TO SUCCESS is not always by the beaten paths . The gold treasures of Cripple Creek were found beneath a cow pasture , where the presence of precious metal had never been suspected . When the crowd of automobile manufacturers were all determined ten years ago that a good automobile could not be made and sold for less than $ 2 , 000 , Henry Ford jumped the beaten path and made a machine for half the money and has grown richer every year , although every year he has reduced the price of his output . We have seen a man take an ill-used and abandoned farm from which former occupants had wrung a shiftless living and after kicking off the premises old ways and notions and methods , introduced push and ingenuity and reaped a fortune from acres which in other days would scarcely feed a band of goats ., It is the spirit to grab chances and make the most of what lies at hand that makes success . For example , a Virginia farmer named Kuhn saved his life the other day ...
You Should Get a Dime More [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
You Should Get a Dime More THERE IS a difference of 10 to 15 cents on each dollar spent by the consumer in what farmers of the United States and farmers of Denmark get for their products in favor of the foreigner . This is the estimate of an expert statistician and student . In other words , our farmers get from 45 to 55 cents out of the dollar the consumer spends for our products , while better distributing methods of the Danes gives them Ml to 65 cents out of the consumer s dollar . In tne hands of the farmers of this country , according to this estimate the 1914 crops are worth a little over $ 5 , 000 , 000 , 000 , and the consumers will payabout $ 11 , 000 , 000 , 000 . The Dane would get around $ 6 , 700 , 000 , 000 out of the same crop . That is the theory of it , . anyway . Organization of the farmers would enable them to handle the crops so as to cut out enough middlemen to make a billion and a half dollars more from this crop than our farmers will . That sum would build afl...
Eliminate the Grade Crossing Toll [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
Eliminate the Grade Crossing Toll EVERY SIX HOURS the grade crossing is responsible for a human life in thisJ &gt; eace-loving land of the United StatesI The 1914 toll , both steam and electric roads , was 1 , 242 . The first two months of 1915 has added 466 to the horror list , and every day brings news of an automobile or a horse-drawn vehicle hit and a funeral procession to follow the gathering of the wreckage and the sitting of the coroners jury . Aside from this death list , the injured for the fifteen months of 1913-14 make a list of 4 , 759 , or over ten each day . Where is the end ? WHEN are the people of the United States going to stop this awful toll ? When are they going to insist that their state legislatures compel dangerous grade crossings to be eliminated , either by gates , cuts or bridges ? Safety first is good advice to travelers on both highways and railroads , but there has been no falling off in grade crossing casualties and there will not be until the l...
What Kind of Neighbor are You ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
What Kind of Neighbor are You ? MORE THAN 2 , 000 years ago Cato wrote , Be a good neighbor . Do not roughly give offense to your own people . If any misfortune should overtake you—which God forbid 1—they protect you with kindly interest . The neighbor must do for the farmer what police , hospital and charities do for those in the city . In any community Hie good will of a neighbor is of great value , and the bond of sympathy is made stronger and stronger as time goes on . The help of ones neighbors is of economic value and a man may save many dollars b y lending a hand to his neighbor when it is convenient , and accepting the same aid in return . That is one reason why it is seldom profitable in the long run to quarrel with him . J Jl J *
The War of Peace [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
The War of Peace Crowded down into an obscure corner by the news frpm war-torn Europe comes the story of a little band of Americans , who are invading China , not to destroy life and property , but rather to save it . Theirs is the task to show how The River of Sorrow , Chinas great wandering stream , may be kept within its banks and made useful and safe to man . But recently another American died after building a railway into the heart of the Andes Mountains against physical and financial difficulties of the gravest sort . It is well to keep such incidents as these in mind , and to remember that by such means do men move forward the standards of civilization . * * * Rose lovers of America are invited to contribute to the national collection that the American Rose Society is making at Washington . Every known variety will be included in this national rose garden , and those who think they have a variety which the Society does not know are asked to correspond with the secretary , Mr ...

How I Made My Farm Produce -SSSS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
How I Made My Farm Produce -SSSS Ten milch cows in all were pnrcbased-Jsrseys and Onrnams-and later some Ayrshire * and Holsteins were added PEOPLE call me a business farmer . I don t claim that they are right . I do say , however , that what success I have had has been due to the fact that I have always used business methods in the running of my farm . And , in a small way at least , I have made a success at farming . In one sense I am a back-to-lander , as that expression has come to be used . I like to feel , however , that the farm has always been my proper place of residence . I mean by that that I was born a * id raised on a farm . I mean , furthermore , that I should have stayed there . However , as is the habit of many farmers sons , I got the idea when I had finished my early schooling that I was cut out for the city pursuits . In fact , I was even conceited enough to believe that the ( arm was not big enough for my talents ; that 1 was a sort of Morgan or Rockefeller in th...
What Your Uncle Sam is Doing [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1915
What Your Uncle Sam is Doing The United States Department of Agriculture ia doing great things for the farmer , more than a many of us imagine . The production side of rural life has taken about all the time and money that the Government cared to spend on agriculture until recently . Naturally , agriculture , being a thrifty , though awkward and wasteful , youth ; was allowed to take care of itself while manufacturing was encouraged and coddled , though agriculture lay at the very root of the nation s development and life . The cry was to the farmer to make two blades of grass grow where one grew before , to put an extra grain of corn on each ear and an extra ear of corn in each hill ; and to milk another cow and see that all the cows were producing enough to pay for thefr board . The rural aid was measured in more corn , cotton , wheat , milk , beef and pork . The idea of growing better farmers and farmer s wives , and equipping them better to solve the problems of the farm , to * ...
