Paradise Lost [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Paradise Lost / wandered back to find the scenes I knew when in my teens ; For often in my memory I ve cherished them most tenderly . The red clay road that scaled Pike s hill , I thought Id find it rising still . They ve leveled it—it made me weep—For autos found it all too steep . The old oak tree , where once I played . No longer casts its sombre shade . A friend told mc it was cut down And sold for wood around the town . The swimming hole I knew so well , { And stories of it oft 1 tell ) I found no more—your pardon , please—Theyd filled it in ; it bred disease . The oaken bucket , famed in song , The open well , have passed along ; Denounced in scientific terms As carriers of deadly germs . Forgotten all of yesterday ? Ah , no ! I met on the highway , Bill Jones , and he said , Pay me , Joe , The dime I lent you years ago . WILL HERBERT . * 3 w « J * »(?•

The Crop Outlook [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

The Crop Outlook WE HAVE REACHED the time in the year when we can beg in to estimate pretty accurately where we are at , in respect to the main crops of thc country . It is true that corn yet has a long way to go , but if there are no untimely frosts in September , we can count on at least an average crop . Hay is made and the small grams are assured , except wheat in the far north , which may also have to reckon with the frost liend , before it is hflrvested The Government Crop Report of July 9 , contains interesting information as to prospects and the acreage which will be harvested this year .

Every Man ' s Dream [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Every Man s Dream IT IS NOT QUITE the truth to say that every man who is not already living the contented life of me fanner , is looking forward to the day when he can at leas own • five acres and liberty . There are almost countless thousands in the city bending over desks and lathes , who nourish this hope and fondly expect some day to realize it . One who has been a close observer , tells us that at least 50 per cent , of the men engaged in hazardous occupations , such as mining and railroading , are possessed with the secret ambition to be farmers , and own their own farms . Hut it isn t as easy , let us confess , to become a farmer as it was once . There was a time in this country when all a man had to do was to load his family into a covered wagon , take along a few farming implements and start West . Usually he kept going until he found a section of country that suited him and then he started plowing . We don t see any covered wagons , or caravans in the West any more : No , ...

Indian Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Indian Farmers AFTER FLOUNDERING around for two or three centuries in its efforts to solve the Indian problem , the Government has at last tumbled onto the most obvious and easy solution , which is to treat the Indians like other human beings , allow them to work out their own salvation with the means immediately at hand , and that is by using the land on which they were born and reared . In other words , the Government now is helping them to become good farmers . That Indian youths can be made very efficient farmers is proved by the facts submitted in the annual report of Superintendent Friedman of the Indian School at Carlisle . This school has two farms on which the science of agriculture is taught practically and thoroughly . Recognizing that almost all the Indian students own farm lands in the West through tribe allotments on the part of the government , the head of the Carlisle School has felt it incumbent on him to see that they obtain a comprehensive training , not in loose ...

Again Alfalfa [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Again Alfalfa OUR ASSOCIATE EDITOR has prepared a mighty good article on this king of the grass field , which is published in this issue of Better Farming . Every year we see new territory occupied by this wonderful plant , which but a few years ago was supposed to be limited in its habitat to the Western country . The Editor of Better Farming started alfalfa in southern Wisconsin successfully twenty-two years ago . It is pretty near safe to say that his farm had the first successful stand of any in the State unless it be that of ex-Governor Hoard at Fort Atkinson . Now , you can scarcely ride through the southern half of Wisconsin without seeing an alfalfa field every few miles . There is one objection to alfalfa : It was discovered by an Oklahoma farmer who uncovered his aching heart the other day in print , and told his tale of woe . He said : We hear a good deal about the value of an alfalfa crop . Some people never let up blowing about it . They tell you if you feed it to your ...

The Leaven of Love [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

The Leaven of Love DID YOU EVER TRY love as a mortgage lifter ? A bigger crop of good cheer would lift and liven farm life all along the line . The scientific sharps at the agricultural stations assert that cattle fatten faster , and do better , if kind words and gentle treatment are mixed with their feed . Did you ever try that on the loved ones at home ? The most useless man in any community—country or city-is the man who loves no one , and hates himself . To increase the crops , to create more enjoyable conditions on the farm , I entreat the farmer to love somebody . If you cannot love anybody else love your own wife-more than you do . Why should any farmer feel more kindly for his stock than he does for his wife ? Why have a tank heater for thei stock tank and no hot water in the farm house kitchen ? Why let your wife freeze her hands , and break her back , thawing out a frozen pump , to get a little water to heat on the back of the dinky kitchen stove , in an old dish pan that ...

Good Roads [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Good Roads THE DIRECT EFFECT that changing bad roads into good roads has upon land value and the general economic welfare of a community is shown in several concrete illustrations gathered by the U . b . Department of Agriculture . The Department has just issued a statement on the subject , based upon a mass of information gathered by the Office of Public Roads , which is making a special study of the economic effect of road improvement in the country . According to data gathered , where good roads replace bad ones , the values of farm lands bordering on the roads increase to such an extent that the cost of road improvement is equalized , if not exceeded . The general land values , as well as farm values , show marked advances , following the improvement of roads . Among the illustrations cited by the Department are the following : In Lee County , Virginia , a farmer owned 100 acres between Ben Hur and Jonesville , which he offered to sell for $ 1 , 800 . In 1908 this road was impro...

fJH i _*& -W More Horse Power Than Needed [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

fJH i _*& -W More Horse Power Than Needed Down in Washington the other day , some one was talking about a certain Congressman who has a way of getting all het up and making a great to do about accomplishing very small things . Yes , said a fellow member , Tom invariably hitches a Corliss engine up to a very small gimlet . This is the time of the year when we can save ourselves a whole lot of heat and labor if we will take warning from this type of man and do our work with as much leisure and concentration of brain as possible . It is not easy to do so , I admit , when we are staring in the face , 100 acres of grain and 10 U tons of hay , both ready to be cut at thc same time . But it doesnt do any good to stew around ami fret and lose our temper and make the women folks afraid to see us coming into the house and having the hired men all off their feed because nothing they can do will please us . Now is thc time for us tn study philosophy . Take things cool , use our brai...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

ALFALFA is Queen of the Cornbelt , the worthy consort of King Corn . Thc two have been joyously crowned by thousands of progressive farmers , who have tried both and found them good . Never was such a combination for better agriculture as corn and alfalfa . Together they form the ration without a peer—corn the fattener and alfalfa the muscle-builder . They make up a balanced ration , getting the best growth in the young things and the quickest fleshing in the old . And best of all , a corn and alfalfa system of farming with the accompanying rotation of crops and the feeding of thc products to good farm animals leaves the farm a better farm , a rich heritage to the children , a great center of good for the community . On thc most rational system of tillage to obtain the best crop of corn and alfalfa is founded the advance to better farming in thousands of instances . For a long , long time alfalfa has served the farming peoples of the earth . It was known and used by primitive people...

J ^ S ^ D ^ rc ^ [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

J ^ S ^ D ^ rc ^ Dairy Profits One of the good things about dairy farming is the fact that the product in shape of butter or cheese takes away from the farm so little of its natural and inherent fertility . The feeding of forage and grain to the cattle adds to the value of the farm every year rather than decreasing it , so that in the dairy region the observer will find improved farms , better buildings and every indication of a prosperous community . Thc farm that now carries ten to twenty-five cows by the present improved IU DAIRY REGIONS THE OBSERVER FINDS IMPROVED FARMS WITH GOOD BUILDINGS methods of feeding silage , and the facilities for caring for the cattle by means of improved stabling , enables the dairyman to produce at less cost , and increase the value of his farm thereby to a greater extent than has prevailed heretofore . Thus it will seem that there arc two good reasons for increasing investments in dairying : First , the great and growing demand for high-grade dairy ...

^ ORCHARD I AND ' GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

^ ORCHARD I AND GARDEN Growing Celery in the Home Garden Where one simply grows a few roots of celery for home use , the celery patch may be located in the garden and need not ^ be planted until the first few weeks of August . It can often be arranged so that it follows some early garden crop such as peas or early potatoes . Ground from which a vegetable crop has been removed is generally dry and if water is not avail able , can not be put into fit condition for celery without considerable work . An abundant supply of water at planting time is essential for . late crops of celery . In transplanting it is well to set the plant with a small amount of earth adhering to the roots . This can be done , by using a long bladed knife when the plants are taken up from the bed in which the seeds were planted . The roots and tops of the plants should be trimmed before setting . The method of planting , depends upon conditions . By the double row systemtwo rows are set about eight inches , apart...

Symbols of Protection [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 August 1913

Symbols of Protection Ancient Egyptians carved over their doorways and upon their temple walls the symbol of supernatural protection ; a winged disk . It typified the light and power of the sun , brought down from on high by the wings of a bird . Mediaeval Europe , in a more practical manner , sought protection behind the solid masonry of castle walls . In America we have approached the ideal of the Egyptians . Franklin drew electricity from the clouds and Bell harnessed it to the telephone . Today the telephone is a means of protection more potent than the sun disk fetish and more practical than castle walls . ^ sfe ^ AMERICAN TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH C OMPANY J ^ % A ND ASSOCIATED C OMPANIES \ M £ » W One Policy One System Universal Service The Bell System has carried the telephone wires everywhere throughout the land , so that all the people are bound together for the safety and freedom of each .
