J * jA a * Start the Wheels of Trade [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

J * jA a * Start the Wheels of Trade RECIPROCITY is the life of trade . The Nation or the class or the individual that fancies that favors can be all one way , does not know the first principle of political economy . The farmer is the last man in the world to receive favors and refuse to requite the courtesy in full . We farmers do not deny that the government has done and is doing a heap for us . We appreciate the encouragement and kind offers that we are receiving from our bankers . We even welcome the frequent advice and patronage which comes to us from theorists who are constantly telling us how to make two blades of grass grow in place of one and how to make our cows throw twins and our ewes produce triplets and our hens lay 365 eggs in a year . This advice is not always workable , but it is well intended . What can we do , on the other hand , to show our appreciation ? With four or five billion dollars in our pockets , we can loosen up a bit and spend some of our surplus for t...

Seed immigrants [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

Seed immigrants A LTHOUGH half of the world is at war and the communication and transportation systems of the other half are seriously affected the agents of the Department of Agriculture continue to ransack the ends of the earth for plants new to the United States and the stream of plant immigrants , some of which may make possible the creation of valuable industries , continues to pour in with little diminution . Practically the only countries cut off from the work of the office by the war are Germany , Austria-Hungary , Belgium , the Balkan States , Turkey and Palestine , and because most of these countries have had their resources studied for years they are not particularly promising fields for plant exploration . As a matter of fact all of the specimens which come from the European countries , now cut off from communication with United States , were sent under exchange agreements by scientific organizations and individual experimenters . The work of the office of foreign seed a...

Trust and Bust [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

Trust and Bust A leading Chicago newspaper recently devoted considerable space to a story of a farmer who had the experience of receiving only three cents a barrel for lettuce . The barrels cost ten cents each and the man who packed them was paid two dollars a day . The check sent to the farmer for the fifty barrels of lettuce was less than two dollars . He actually received three cents per barrel . The newspaper used the story as an editorial , but failed to state just who was responsible , the dealer , commission man or grocer . With tne experience of many farmers in mind , we mignt add that the unfortunate farmer in the above instance was lucky he did not get a bill for freight charges and storage . It has happened to hundreds of farmers in the p ? st , where larger shipments than fifty barrels of lettuce have resulted in the producers having to pay freight and storage and not getting one cent fot their trouble , it will happen hundreds of times again and the victims are not enti...

The Year Without a Summer [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

The Year Without a Summer IN THE month of July this year , snow actually fell in the latitude of Chicago . It has been a cold , wet summer ; it has been an extraordinary season as compared with the average , but by no means unprecedented . Our grandfathers used to talk about the memorable year of 1816 . It was known as the year without a summer . Their narratives , it must be confessed , were so remarkable as to arouse suspicion that distant recollection had taken on the tinge of exaggeration , but dependable records verify the fact that while January , 1816 , was so mild that most people would have let their furnaces go out , if they had had any , and while February was only occasionally colder and March and April were so warm that buds and flowers were coaxed out of their wintry sheath , May on the other hand was a month of ice and snow . By the end of May everything perishable had been killed by the cold and young leaves had been stripped from the trees . June was as cold as May ...

The Indian infamy [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

The Indian infamy WHEN our troubles with foreign affairs are over we would like to see our government apply itself seriously to the solution of the age old Indian problem . That problem will never be solved as long as we treat the Indian as a ward and not as a man . His estate is administered for him as we administer the estate of an imbecile . He owns a lot of property but he has neither the ordering of it nor the training to make him capable of ordering it right . The Editor of Better Farming was in the Indian country a few weeks ago and he personally became conversant with one instance which illustrates general conditions . A young Sioux Indian had been educated at Carlisle , Pa . He had returned to his people full of ambition and purpose to succeed in life as a stock man and farmer . After operating for a year or two he had matured a bunch of cattle to a point where they were fit for market . Could he sell them ? Not without the advice and consent of the Indian Agent . After wea...

Jl Jl Jl Arrived at Last [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

Jl Jl Jl Arrived at Last The horseless farm has been talked about for a considerable time . Now comes G . T . Wyckoff of Marinette County , Wisconsin , to the front witu the announcement that , as far as his farm is concerned , the horse is passe * . For two years this farmer has worked an improved farm exclusively with a tractor . Not only tractorized his farm but , in the first case , cleared the land and made it ready for cultivation entirely without the aid of horses . This horseless farm consists of eighty acres and the work is done b y an eleven-ton tractor which takes the place of horses in all of the farm work , and is also used in many instances where horses could not be used . Farmer Wyckoff claims to hold the record also of having the largest acreage planted to certified potatoes seed in Wisconsin . Of the 20 , 000 bushels of potatoes certified by the state in 1914 , Wyckoff purchased 500 bushels , and has fifty-five acres planted to certified seed . If the tractor is as ...

Making Every Acre Pay ^ a- * ** _ I Um 1 , o « # l 1 « , l ha be handled by The farmers of the United States , according to the 1910 census , had 479 ,- 000 , 000 acres of improved , and 400 , 000 ,- 000 acres of unimproved . The improved land is made up of swamp , cutover stump areas and other lands considered too rough or steep for cultivation . These unproductive spots are distributed generally , and there is no state , practically , no county , that has not some good land that is in some way rendered unproductive . In many states there is hardly a farm where the full area is utilized . What this means to the farmer is a direct loss in producing power varying from a few square rods , up to as much as half of his farm . These spots lie idle and are a source of perpetual worry , not only as breeding places for vermin , crop pests and mosquitoes , but also as breaks in large fields , reducing them to more ex pensively tilled patches . They are unsightly and reduce the actual selling...

Which Tractor To Buy ? [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

Which Tractor To Buy ? THE farmers of this country , and of the Corn Belt in particular , are going to plunge heavily this fall in the matter of buying farm tractors . not because it is going to be a popular buying movement , as in the case of the automobile , but because „ f the practical proof of the utility and efficiency of the farm tractor that has been placed in front of the farmers all over the country this past few weeks . Tractor demonstrations have been held , or are scheduled , in various agricultural centers in all parts of the states . It might be imagined that these demonstrations have been planned by tractor manufacturers as a means of boosting their wares . Such is not the case as , in practically every instance , the manufacturers have been invited to attend mass meetings and demonstrate their products , by civic hodies , agricultural colleges and agricultural publishers . A Handy Machine lor Any Farm In no instance have either the manufacturers or the progressives ...

PQUIM [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915

PQUIM Trap Nests For Poor Layers For weeding out poor layers and increasing the efficiency of the flock , the Department of Agriculture recommends the use of trap nests . A trap aest is so arranged that after a hen enters it she is confined until released . The use of trap nests is essential in breeding poultry for both egg production and exhibition , where pedigree records are used in selecting either the male or females , and has . a place in mass selection for increasing egg production . Trap nests aid . in weeding out poor layers and increasing the average egg yield of a flock by selecting and breeding . Some poultry breeders trapnest their pullets during the first six months of laying and use this as a basis in selecting their breeders for egg pro duction . . One trap nest should be provided for four or five hens kept in flocks of fifty or more , while more traps are necessary in smaller flocks . The hens are banded with numbered bands , and a record is kept of their egg produc...

These proposed regulations are stricter in some important respects than those now in force . A public hearing was held at the Bureau of Animal Industry , Washington , this month in order to afford an opportunity to manufacturers , stock raisers , veterinarians and state officials to express their views upon these new proposed regulations . The act of 1913 makes it a misdemeanor to ship in interstate commerce any virus , serum , toxin or analogous product intended for use on domestic animals which has not been manufactured in an establishment holding a valid f...
