* 2 W JP il * These are Stirring Times [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

* 2 W JP il * These are Stirring Times ONE BY-PRODUCT of the war which may be some compensation for its iniquities is the better knowledge of geography and history which we are gaining . European names had little meaning for us , and it is doubtful whether one in a thousand could have passed a geography test or even got a mark of forty , if we were asked to describe the boundaries of any European nation . Our knowledge of history has also been revived . We had an indistinct notion that the human race started in the garden of Eden and had heard that that piece of fertile country lay somewhere near the valley of the Euphrates , but we are a lot more concerned in that locality since Russian and Turk have met in death grapple in the very spot where our first parents wrestled with human problems and where two brothers , Cain and Abel , fought out a quarrel which was quite as senseless as that which is now engaging twenty million of their descendants . It is sad to think that the field wh...

Why not Spuds ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

Why not Spuds ? HOW ABOUT WHEAT ? We fear that our farm friends may be tempted to make two mistakes right now . One is to hold their wheat of last year s harvest too long , hoping to get a higher price than now obtains ; another is to devote too large an acreage this year , with a hope that present prices will stand up until this year s crop can be marketed . It is our opinion that the price of wheat as well as the issue of the great war is going to be decided at the Dardanelles . If the Allies force a passage , there will be upwards of a hundred million bushels of surplus wheat from Russia that will pour immediately through the Hellespont in a golden stream , and there will be another hundred million bushels or more pour through that open channel yearly for centuries to come . The man , therefore , who holds wheat now for a better price or plants more than the normal acreage this year is making a wager that the obsolete armies of Turkey can hold off the combined fleets of the Allie...

A Letter from Across the Line [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

A Letter from Across the Line Altogether , along the Canadian Northern lines in the prairie provinces the increase may be averaged at forty per cent . The figures give a total acreage plowed last fall of 6 , 181 , 376 acres . This is an increase of 1 , 766 , 108 acres over the preceding year . Figured at 21 . 38 bushels to the acre—the grainyield from fall-plowed lands along the Canadian Northern in Manitoba , Saskatchewan and Alberta , would be 132 , 157 , 818 . 88 bushels . On the yield basis of last year the increased acreage would produce 37 , 759 , 389 . 04 bushels . But 1914 was an off year for grain production in the West , and that average will probably be exceeded in 1915 . The largest acreage for any one station was reported from Star City , in the black loam district in northern Saskatchewan . It was given as 110 , 000 , and the increase over last year as 40 per cent . Naisberry , close to Star City , reported 75 , 000 acres . Melfort , nearby on the same line , claimed a...

j * JA J » The Great White Way [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

j * JA J » The Great White Way WHEN THIS YEAR ENDS there will be nineteen commonwealths in the American Union in which it will not be possible to legally operate a dram shop . A glance at the accompanying map will show us how we can set foot upon the eastern shore of Virginia where the first white man s settlement was permanently established , in lOJO , and travel westward to the Pacific coast and be on dry land all the way . This broad white streak across the continent tells onl y half the story ot the cleanup which progressive temperance has made in this country in recent years . The map does not show that Texas and Kentucky , for instance , are about ninety per cent dry . Illinois , Ohio , Indiana , Mississippi , and California , working under local or county option laws , are more than fifty per cent dry . The map does not show that the legislatures of Montana , South Dakota and South Carolina have recently- passed permissive acts to allow the voters of those states to decide wh...

JA JA * Bet on Horses [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

JA JA * Bet on Horses THE HORSELESS AGE is more distant in the future than ever . In addition to the shiploads that have already been sent to the armies of Europe , papers tell us every day of new demands at the horse markets of America for additional thousands . While our farmers have been getting pretty good prices for surplus stock , it is really surprising that horses do not command a better figure . Cattle , sheep and hogs have practically doubled in value in the last twenty years . Horse values have not increased proportionately . We can raise a twelve hundred-pound steer in two years and sell him for a hundred dollars . It takes four years to produce a salable horse ,, and though he costs for raising , breaking and maturing , at least three times as much as his bovine playmate , he sells for not much more . It is estimated that the total number of horses in the countries now at war in Europe is not more than thirty-nine million , which is a small number in a population exceed...

The Rural Drama [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

The Rural Drama THE DRAMA has at last come to aid instead of ridicule the farmer . The Agricultural Extension division of the University of Minnesota has written and put on a play to entertain and get over a plea both to young and old ; a plea to the young to stay on the farm , and to the old to avail themselves of modern farming methods taught by the agricultural schools and colleges . This teaching from across the footlights of the advantages of farm life , especially the awakening to the necessity of modern agriculture , has been delayed . We should have expected it years ago . Pulpit , press and stage have been our most powerful influences in shaping the tendencies of the day for better things . They have been slow to reach the farmer , however . The play opens in the dooryard of the Merill home in Minnesota . Charles Merill , a hard working farmer of the old school , enters calling for his hired man , Gus , a Swedish character . Merill s son is then called in and next a neighbo...

MiJ ^ M ^ m ^ mL [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1915

MiJ ^ M ^ m ^ mL Treating Fence Posts A small , but satisfactory , tank for the open tank method of treating fence posts can be made from one of the galvanized steel barfels used for shipping oil and gasoline . These barrels are 36 inches high by 32 inches in diameter and by removing one of the heads with a cold-chisel , or otherwise , a tank 34 inches deep remains . This tank is heavy enough to serve the purpose of post-treating , and may be supported upon two iron cross-bars built into the sides of a brick or stone work fire-: place . Such a tank will hold about 10 or 12 posts of ordinary size at one time . One of the best preservatives is coal tar creosote . The posts should be seasoned and the creosote should be heated to at least the temperature of boiling water with the posts in it . By leaving the posts in the creosote while it cools down , a good degree of penetration should be secured with most of the quick-growing soft woods like Cottonwood , poplar , elm , and the split c...
