VICTORY ESSENTIAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 March 1904
VICTORY ESSENTIAL . President Eoosevelt , in a late address , spoke in part as follows : Moreover , every friend of liberty every believer in self-government , every idealist who wished to see his ideals take practical shape , wherever he might be in the world , knew that the success of all in which he most believed was bound up with the success of the Union armies in this great struggle . I confidently predict that when the final judgment of history is recorded , it will be said that in no other war of which we have written record was it more vitally essential for the welfare of mankind that -victory should rest where it finally rested . There have been other wars for individual freedom . There have been other wars for national greatness . But there has never been another war in which the issues at stake were so large , looked at from either standpoint . We take just pride in the great deeds of the men of 1776 , but we must keep in mind that the Revolutionary war would have been sh...

THE POST CHECK PLAN . Postmaster General Payne in his last annual report took strong ground in - favor of the passage of a measure which would afford a safe and cheap method of transmitting money through the mails .

CLEANING THE COW . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 March 1904
CLEANING THE COW . The cow ought to be kept cleaner than the horse . This is difficult because of the habits of the animal , but for this reason the cows should receive more care . Their flanks should be kept free from manure ; they should be brushed , and the bag should be wiped with a damp cloth or sponge just before milking , to prevent dirt from falling into the milk . The amount of dirt and filth that gets into the milk from the cow is surprising , and is ona of the chief causes of the rapid spoiling of milk . To reduce this still further , good dairymen are beginning to use special pails .
