Cross Purposes [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

Cross Purposes lhe well-dressed , portly man stood for several moments watching the brawny drayman who was laboriously tugging at a large , heavy-laden box , which seemed almost as wide as the doorway through which he was trying to move it . Presently the kindly disposed onlooker approached the perspiring drayman and said with a patronizing air : Like to have a lift ? Bet yer life , the other replied , and for the next two minutes the two men , on opposite sides of the box , worked , lifted , puffed , and wheezed , but it did not move an inch . Finally the portly man straightened up and said , between puffs : I don t believe we can get it in there . Get it in ? the drayman almost shouted . Why , you blamed muttonhead , I m trying to get it out !

js js js What to Do in June [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

js js js What to Do in June Have you trimmed the lambs and docked their tails ? * * * Are the pigs in pasture ? Do not forget the nose ring . It is not pretty but it saves the sod . * * * Do not wait until the alfalfa is big and rank and woody . Cut it when it begins to blossom . It makes better hay . * * . * Better farmers are getting their hay tools ready . An extra sickle or two will save delay when we start the mowers . * * * Do not expect the young chicks to live on flies and grasshoppers . A few handfuls of grain will push them along and make early broilers and early layers . * » * Did you grease the plow moldboards when you laid them by ? A few minutes now with elbow grease and axle grease will save you half a day of bother to make them scour when you start plowing in the fall . * * * The horse gets thirsty , too , and it is a long time from morn till noon and noon till night . When you take your jug to the field fill an old milk can wth water for the horses . A merciful man ...

J » Jl * America First [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

J » Jl * America First SUCH a magnificent spectacle as we have seen in this country in recent weeks is rare . 100 ,- 000 , 000 people at the first intimation of national danger forgot all differences of party , creed and previous condition and thought only of the flag and our national honor . Surely the patient man in the White House , who has borne burdens almost beyond human limit , must have been cheered by the rallying cry which came from all corners of the country . He has interpreted the national feeling exactly , when he said that America covets no nation s land and questions no nation s honor and there is but one thing for which we will contend and that is a moral principle . If we have to fight , it will not be for ourselves alone , but for the cause of humanity everywhere . But we will not fight . An enunciation so clear and disinterested not only commands the approval of every part of our population , including foreign born and native born , but is so irresistible as to c...

_ % u 5 * « Jv Post Bellum Prosperity [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

_ % u 5 * « Jv Post Bellum Prosperity THERE WILL be no substantial advancement in land values this year , nor will there be as long as the foreign war continues and foreign immigration is suspended . But when the war ends there will undoubtedly be such an exodus from Europe as we have never seen . The population of those old countries will surely wish to escape the intolerable taxation which those countries will have to endure for many years . They will wish also to escape any possibility of repetition of the horrors through which they are passing . From Germany especially we should receive large accretions to our rural population and such accretions will be most welcome since no better class of farmers have come to us than those which have come from the Fatherland . We will welcome millions more of their kind . However the war ends , it must necessarily end in serious hardship to Germany . That nation has become in recent years very largely an mdustnal community . Its great factori...

JS Jm JS Aurora Borealis [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

JS Jm JS Aurora Borealis AGAIN WE HEAR that the failing meat supply of America is going to be reinforced by a large importation of reindeer meat from Alaska . That little herd of reindeer which Sheldon Jackson imported from Siberia about twenty years ago is said to have multiplied faster than the herds of Jacob and will be in condition next year to suffer the slaughter of several thousand meat animals which will be shipped to Seattle and San Francisco as cold carcasses and replenish the meat supply of the coast . That is good news , if true , but we will be forgiven if we regard it with a degree of dubiety since we have a lively recollection of the promises which were made in , regard to the Belgian hares . The reproductive capacity of this little animal far exceeds that of the reindeer , and mathematicians figured out for us how the multiplication of this species would solve our meat problems with certainty . Then when the Belgian hare failed us , the Angora goat was introduced and...

The Value of a Trip to The Fair [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

The Value of a Trip to The Fair UP to the time that the war clouds had not made themselves visible , people from every corner of the civilized globe were planning to visit America and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition at San Francisco . Despite the troublesome times across the water and the hazard of sea travel under the submarine regime , many hundreds of citizens of foreign countries are visiting the Exposition . The visitor to the Exposition , no matter what his line of business may be , can learn considerable of commereial value from the various exhibits . Especially is this so for the farmer . Even the up-to-date American agriculturist will find much that is new and of direct interest to his vocation . Three huge . palaces are given over entirely to the agricultural exhibits as well as sixty-five acres to the live stock .

Lightning Rods [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

Lightning Rods What Uncle Sam Says About Them The following ten questions and answers have been prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture in answer to hundreds of inquiries for authoritative information : 1 . Do lightning rods really protect * buildings ? Answer : Yes ; but the rods must be of proper character , properly installed , and properly grounded in relatively moist earth . Periodical inspection and maintenance in good condition are indispensable to efficient protection . 2 . Do lightning rods on a building increase the danger of its being struck ? Answer : Yes ; but a properly rodded house may be struck several times without injury , whereas a single stroke without the protection afforded by the rods may cause disaster . 3 . Should lightning rods be put up with or without insulators ? Answer : Without . Buildings with metal roofs or wherein any metal construction employed is properly connected to earth , are already partly provided with lightning protection . ...

AuJSzfiWSkJEtm [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

AuJSzfiWSkJEtm A Babcock Test on the Fields It was a wonderful herd of Jerseys . Fverv cow in the barn had a Register of Merit dam and many of them traced back 10 orize winning stock for generations . Back of each cow in that great , wellliehted stable hung a small square of cardboard in which smaller squares were marked off to represent each day in the month . At the right-hand side of each of these were other columns , in which appeared the amount of grain and forage each cow had eaten during the month , together with still other columns , in which were shown the total number of pounds of milk produced , its tests , the total amount of butter-fat and the net profit or the loss . It was a wonderful system and it enabled the dairyman to tell at a glance as to whether a cow deserved to stand in the herd or not . We , the dairyman and the writer , went out over the farm . We looked at a field of corn . Its color was pale and it was ( . low in growing . In the clover field we found the...

ORCHARD AND PARPEN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915

ORCHARD AND PARPEN Controlling Tomato Wilt The tomato wilt is introduced into the fields by pieces of old diseased plants , by spores of the fungus , by transplanting diseased plants from the cold frames , and , possibly , by planting seed with the disease on them . As the plants die from this disease they should be pulled up and burnt as soon as they are dry . Soil for the cold frames should be obtained only from fields that have never grown tomatoes , and it is questionable whether the same soil should be used for more than one year . Tomato seeds will stand short exposure to strong disinfectants without injuring their germinative power . Where any doubt exists it is advised to disinfect . The rotation of crops is of distinct benefit . Tomatoes should not be grown on the same ground for more than one year in three . In old tomato sections , truckers have found that this is a rule that must be followed if tomatoes are to be grown successfully . If the tomato wilt is on the ground i...
