Jt J * _ * What To Do In July Make hay while the sun shines , especially if it is alfalfa . * * * City life may have its attractions but the farmer doesn t need pale pills and a bracer before breakfast . * * * Try to get over that corn field just once more , then once again , but make the cultivation very shallow . * * * Paint or grease the plows before putting away for the season ; do this even if you expect to use the plows or cultivators again this fall . * * * Flies mean irritation and less milk from the cows . Swat em right and left , in the kitchen and barnyard . The ounce of prevention kind of swatting is the kind that counts most . * * * Take a vacation . The farmer needs to get a rest as well as city folk . Take the boys and tfirls and mother and go fishing and camping for a week and forget all about the heat , the plowing and the silo filling that is to come after the slack , following harvest , * * * Order all the silo catalogues you can find , and then make a tour of the...

The Nation's Birthday [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
The Nations Birthday ON THE FOURTH OF JULY , we will be 139 years old as a nation . Not since the grilling days of our own great war of the 60 s have we celebrated this anniversary amid such stirring emotions . There has been plenty happening oi late to arouse patriotism and still more to arouse pride . We do not brag of our martial prowess , but we have a right to exult in the spirit of courage and the spirit of human helpfulness which possesses our country just now . We do not plan war , neither do we fear war . We believe there are victories immensely more glorious than those won on the field of carnage . For almost a year we have been waging war against the dread hosts of famine and disease in Belgium and Servia . We are soon to invade Poland on a similar holy mission . _ Upwards of a hundred million dollars of American money have already gone for the _ succor of stricken human beings in the war-ridden fields of Europe and yet there are people who pretend to believe that this na...
Summer Journeys [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
Summer Journeys WHERE are you going ? We are asking particularly our farm folk , who were never better situated than now , to enjoy the benefit of travel . They have the certainty of an immense crop to harvest and the double certainty of extraordinarily high prices . They are busy now in the hay field but in a few weeks the meadows will be mown , the golden sheaves will be snug in the stack , the corn will be laid by after its last cultivation and there will be a month or six weeks before fall work comes on apace , and every farm family may be at liberty to enlarge its education by travel . It is the time to get acquainted with our great country . Most of us know the East , but the boundless West , with its infinite variety of interest , is a land of mystery to the great majority The railroads are making attractive rates with generous privileges . For the price of a fat steer one can negotiate the round trip from Chicago to the Coast , see the two expositions , at San Francisco and ...
£ * v * t ^* Women—Old and New [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
£ * v * t ^* Women—Old and New ABRAHAM LINCOLN wore patched pants . He did not wear them on the platform in his great debates with Douglas . He did not wear them in the Presidency . He probably did not wear them because he liked to . He wore them because he had to . He was a poor boy but was infinitely rich in having a mother who knew how to patch . She not only patched little Abraham s breeches , but she could patch a dollar bill so it went further than ten dollars will now go in the hands of most of our modern women . The mother of Abraham Lincoln did not live within reach of a department store , neither did she have the money wherewith she could go and buy a pair of ready-made everythings nor hang up the bill on Thomas . She not only patched the clothes to make them last three or four seasons , but she saved the wood ashes and made lye ; and with lye and hog grease made soft soap . No electric lights illuminated that little Kentucky cabin . She had to try out the tallow from the ...
A New Use For Beer Kegs [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
A New Use For Beer Kegs THEY ARE having a wet time in Kansas , not the kind of wet times they used to have when the Sunflower State was flooded with beer and miscellaneous things _ that inundated the homes and populated the jails and poorhouses . In respect to liquor , Kansas is now dry , but in respect to rainfall , she has had more than she bargained for . The fields have been so soft that in some places , self-binders could not be operated without a scow attachment . One inventive farmer near Pittsburg , Kan ., happened to remember that there was # a heap of beer barrels stored in the county building , where the sheriff had impounded them several years ago , when the great crusade was on . He rigged up four of them by boring holes in the ends and inserting iron pipe for an axle , using the kegs as helper wheels for the binders , thus preventing the miring of the machines in fields muddy from incessant rains . The device proved a success and other farmers adopted this plan , and w...
Concrete Means Better Farming [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
Concrete Means Better Farming Hog cholera and the recent epidemic of foot-and-mouth disease has brought the question of sanitation right under the farmers nose . Looking at many a hog lot or feeding lot after a rainy day one would wonder why the question of sanitation has not been attended to long ago . Of course , there are many farmers who have made the move in the right direction , but it is easy to find the farm that most of the time has a mud hole for a feeding lot . This not only means the consumption of countless germs by the feeding animals but also the loss of considerable grain that might otherwise have helped fatten the livestock . The solution to the sanitation question in the hog lot , the feeding lot , the barn , stables and the dairy is the liberal use of concrete . Concrete has numberless advantages and no disadvantages . It is economical , durable , a protection against germs and vermin , it eliminates waste in feeding , is easily handled , its first cost is the onl...
GASOLINE VERSUS DOBBIN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
GASOLINE VERSUS DOBBIN Better / S^ . Farming A BOUT a year ago , a Chicago business man was told by his doctor that he would have to go in for an „ ncn air life or take the chances of an , iy demise . Having several thousand dollars he bought a farm in the northwest Being a simon pure city man he was most interested in the net profits that had been made on the farm by the man from whom he bought . They were satisfactory and a bill of sale was soon drawn „ n and signed . When the time came to take some of the produce to the railroad , it was a matter of fifteen miles to the nearest line , Mr . City Man Farmer found lie was up against a problem in transportation . When he wished to get anywhere in a hurry in the city he hailed a taxi . It was only natural then that he turned to motive power for moving his produce . To make the story clear it will be necessary to state that the farm he bought had only been half cultivated by its previous owner . The city man could not see the folly of ...
Cutting the Cost of Lime [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915
Cutting the Cost of Lime Every farmer knows the value of lime . Lime neutralizes soil acids which may be injurious to plant growth , it is an essential for plant food and it plays an important part in the activities of useful bacteria , including those which gather nitrogen from the air independently of legumes . Carbonate of lime plays an all important part in the mechanical condition of the soil . In particular , its effect is to granulate the soil so that , if heavy , it becomes more open and porous and loses much of its sticky nature . On the other hand , granulation may improve a too open soil which is made more retentive of both water and plant food . Practically no soils possess enough lime to keep the soil sweet . Even where lime rock is plentiful the land is often acid because , before it can become available , lime rock must be pulverized finely and mixed with the soil . Big crop yields are never produced on acid lands . To expect acid lands to produce profitably is expect...
