AGRICULTURE [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1904
AGRICULTURE In the Industrial progress made by the United States during recent years there has been no more conspicuous feature than the growth of agriculture . The amount of fixed capital invested in agriculture is about $ 20 , 000 , 000 , 000 , or four times the amount invested in manufactures . More than half of the people of the United States live on farms , and more than a third of all the people engaged in gainful occupations work on farms . In one year the products of American farms have reached an aggregate value of nearly $ 5 , 000 ,- 000 , 000 . American brains applied to American farms is what is causing the volume of our farm exports to continue steadily on the increase . The science of agriculture is in rudimentary stages In all lands .

Our government is doing more for the farmer than all other nations combined ,

FARMERS AND TRADE [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1904
FARMERS AND TRADE Figures are dull fellows usually , but once in a while you see some that look positively bright . In his last annual report the Secretary of Agriculture shows that in the thirteen years 1890—1902 inclusive the annual excess of all domestic exports over imports averaged $ 275 , 000 , 000 . In the same time the annual average in favor of farm products was $ 337 , 000 , 000 . That is , there was an annual average adverse balance of trade In other than farm products of $ 62 , 000 , 000 . This the farmers made good , and had left $ 275 , 000 , 000 to the credit of themselves and the country . In the year ending June 30 , 1903 , the excess of the value of domestic exports over imports was $ 367 ,- 000 , 000 , and the excess of farm products was $ 422 , 000 , 000 .

In the last fourteen years the farmers wiped out an adve...
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ON GOOD ROADS AND FREE RURAL DELIVERY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1904
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT ON GOOD ROADS AND FREE RURAL DELIVERY . The rural free delivery service has been steadily extended . More routes have been installed since the first of July last , than in any like period in the Department s history . * * • No governmental movement of recent years has resulted in greater Immediate benefit to the people of the country districts . Rural free delivery , taken in connection with the telephone , the bicycle and the trolley , accomplishes much toward lessening the Isolation of farm life and malting it brighter and more attractive . In the immediate past the lack of just such facilities as these has driven many of the more active and restless young men and women from the farms to the cities , for they rebelled at loneliness and lack of mental companionship . It is unhealthy and undesirable for the cities to grow at the expense of the country ; and rural free delivery is not only a good thing itself , but is good because it is one of the causes which che...
PRESIDENTS MESSAGE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1904
PRESIDENTS MESSAGE . The strong part of Mr . Roosevelts lilt . -= fige is his review of the Isthmus Canal question , his plea for the treaty with the new Republic of Panama , and his rather strenuous but effective defence of his recognition of that Republic Fifty-three revolutions in flfly-seven years are reasonably sufficient evidence of the desire of Panama to be free * from Colombia and of the importence of the latter to keep order on the Isthmus . Equally interesting is his account of what the Department of Commerce and Labor and the Bureau of Corporations have been doing for the supervision of great corporations . Possibly the majority of moderate men , irrespective of politics , will agree with the President in believlieving that we need not be oversensitive about the welfare of corporations which shrink from the light . Ue warns Congress that the surplus revenue is dwindling , but the pill is coated with the observation that we cannot afford to be parsimonious . No danger of ...
