How the Banker Can Help [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

How the Banker Can Help can do with his own hands on his own land , and just hoio to do it . Only when the work on each farm is intelligently adapted to all the conditions to which that farm is subject can the best results be reached . The farmer must look less to the increase in the acre value of his land , and more to the increase in acre value of his crops ; must work to secure the largest returns by the best cultivation , joined to the preservation and increase of the fertility of his soil ; must keep an adequate amount of the best varieties of live stock . These . are the bottom principles of good and profitable farming . With an under-supply and an increasing demand , the live stock market will be profitable for a long time to come . Live stock maintains soil fertility . An improvement in their quality , both for dairy purposes and for meat production , would add hundreds of millions of dollars to the wealth of the country and to the resources of its agricultural population . ...

On the Road to Better Roads [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

On the Road to Better Roads n-i-HE BRA of road building is here , said the editor ot the I Orange Judd Farmer recently . Trails served the pur pose of the emigrants when the country was new , and as more permanent farming methods bave been growing up , men have been too busy to look to the highways . But in every state now , and in almost every county , there is a desire to make the out-of-the-way places more accessible . The good roads fever is sweeping through the country , and it is a disease io be welcomed . Throughout the middle west first-class road laws have been passed during the last few years , and nearly every community is waking up to the tact that a country that is not worth a good road is not worth living in . Farmers everywhere are beginning to realize that good roads mean not only cheaper and quicker transportation , but also add greatly to the pleasure and comforts of country life . Business men are supporting every move tor better transportation facilities . Hence ...

How Can a Young Man Become a Farmer ? ShouldUncIeSamHelp ? HOW are young men to become farmers ? Why do young men seek positions at salaries rather than engage in business , such as farming , which requires capital ? How is farming to be made a continuous commercial enterprise like manufacturing , transportation , or banking ? There s a big side to the rural credits discussion that Is generally overlooked—the neceaaity to devlae some method by which the young man , with little or no capital , may become a farmer .

Plowshares vs . Bayonets [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

Plowshares vs . Bayonets W HEN this was written in early August the world faced the gravest crisis in history . It seemed beyond belief that sanity had forsaken all , or almost all , of the supposedly great statesmen of Europe yet there was little hope of staving off a tragedy which will stagger humanity . Such a war will absolutely destroy and wipe out billions of treasure and it is pitiful to talk of the profit , if any , that might come to those aloof from the awful cataclysm . If it is to be , then in the end it will be a godsend to Europe if from this moment the United States strains every nerve to raise its production of crops and live stock to the uttermost , in order that the world may enjoy as low a cost of living as possible . In other words , since Europe has taken up the bayonet then a valiant use of our plowshares and pruning hooks should bring an increased production that may mean not only a great source of profit to us . but a humanitarian act in feeding those who can...

A Pillar of Progress J AMES J . HILL , who has prepared especially for THE BANKER-FARMER the statement used on the cover page is one of the great pillars of progress in this nation . His work , throughout , has been constructive , and far seeing , productive of lasting benefit and to agriculture in particular .

The other day he had a little heart-to-heart talk with 300 agents oi his railroad . Smile and keep smiling , for it is the man with the cheerful smile and never failing diplomacy who climbs the ladder , he said . And there is always room at the top , too .

The Most Important Problem Today : How to Maintain Nitrogen ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

The Most Important Problem Today : How to Maintain Nitrogen ? By Henry Truitt Farm Adriter , Prorin County , Illinois THE QUESTION of how much ot our ( arm should be kept in clover or some other leguminous crop , in order to maintain the nitrogen supply is conceded by all Investigators and students of scientific agriculture to be by far the most important problem still to be solved . It is important because it is vital . That is , upoa tbe results of its solution will depend the foundation principles of future practice . It is important , also , because it has as yet given up to the world but few of the secrets of its solution . The phosphorus problem has been almost completely worked out . We are able to tell just how much phosphorus there is in our soil and we know that no plant , regardless of its habits or characteristics , can add a single pound of phosphorus to our land . We know , therefore , that the only way to maintain or increase the phosphorus content is to make positive...

A Corn Campaign Led by a Banker in a Washington County [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

A Corn Campaign Led by a Banker in a Washington County W HEN I came west three years ago , from the stock country of northeastern Missouri , I was under the impression that tbe West , particularly the Northwest , was a garden spot , suitable only for people with weak bodies and tired minds ; that the farmer s only J . F . Sears , cashier of the Prouer State bank , Prosser , Washington , is given much of the credit for the successful interest of his community in corn-growing . When you think of Washington , like Mr . Sears on his arrival , you are likely to think that fruit raising it the only path for the farmer . The corn showing ln Benton county has impressed bankers and farmers of Washington and we asked Mr . Sears to tell how it was accomplished . Youll notice that It is the same story of cooperation—a county adviser—a live commercial club—and a live banker , even if Mr . Sears foregoes to mention his own part . By J . F . Sears source of revenue was the fruit industry and where...

What Tearing Down the Home Town Cost an Iowa Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 September 1914

What Tearing Down the Home Town Cost an Iowa Farmer Hans Garbus is a German farmer in Iowa . He wrote a letter to the Farm Journal , Philadelphia , the other day . It summarized his experience—and that of his neighbor *—in neglecting their home merchants to save money by patronizing the mail-order houses . The letter is a human document . Hans Garbut writes just as he would tell us—and it rings true . Let the small-town banker give this to his farmers—it ought to be read in every hamlet in the United States . WF- FARMERS need awakening to the fact that we have unmistakably reached tbe period where we must think and plan . 1 am one of the slow German farmers that had to be shown , and I am now giving my experience that others may profit , for knowledge is more expensive now than ten years ago . Twenty-nine years ago I began my farm career . I had an old team and $ 50 . Our furniture was mostly homemade—chairs , cupboard and lounge made from drygoods boxes , neatly covered with ten-ce...

Insurance and Bank Farm Loans Don t Total More Than Billion COMMENTS and questions growing out of the recent statistics THE BANKER-FARMER gave on farm loans held by the life insurance companies of the country have led us into some further investigations . We have frequently seen and heard figures quoted indicating that the totals in assets of the various life insurance companies approached those in the banking field .

Of this amount $ 1 , 608 , 013 , 967 is invested in real estate mortgages . While we cannot determine exactly what proportion of these mortgage holdings are on farms yet we do know from official reports coming direct to us that 24 of these 241 life insurance companies hold $ 1 , 407 , 110 , 121 of the grand total of $ 1 , 608 , 013 , 967 real estate loans .

As Others See Us WE WANTED to see ourself as others see us—and we ve had our wish .

And each boy knows that no farmer need to be idle in the winter when there are tools to mend and indoor tasks demand attention . Their labor is carefully adapted to their physical development and reward in credits depends on the manner in which a task is performed and not on its value to the school . The ability to swim , to row a boat paddle a canoe or raft , climb a tree , everything that is joy to a clean-minded boy is developed in a scientific manner .
