Agricultural Credits [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 December 1913

Agricultural Credits ( Continued from Page 0 ) Is it more a question ot state legislation , owing to the tact that the needs ot forty-eight states vary so greatly , the needs ot some being infinitely greater than others , that what would be operative in one would fail In another ? These are some of the questions which need and demand answers . The adoption of a reasonable and workable federal currency measure will go the whole distance toward the solution ot the problem , in the short-time credit features and modernizing the national banking . act will carry us many steps farther . The question of personal credits—rediscounts as a basis for currency—ia the function of the federal government which it is about to employ through the pending currency bill . This was the fundamental provision needed to enable the banks to meet the demands of depositors without having to demand payment from borrowers .

THE SEASONS WHY I WISH TO BECOME A FARMER / he writes in his prise-winning paper on that subject , are numerous ; but of these , six stand out prominently : Farming has a future , a great variety of work , wageearning capacity , independence , social attractions and health assurance . I value these reasons in the order named . The work on a farm changes with the different seasons and each season has its variety . In comparison with the wages earned in the city a farmer s pay is meager indeed , but , again in comparison , it will go twice as far . Practically speaking , the farmer is dependent on no one . The farm is a world in itself . It has its work and also tts contentment . Is this not happines...

The First Woman ( While several sections of the country ore contemplating the employment of women as farm demonstrators or assistants , the Better Farming Association of North Dakota seems to be the first actually to put a woman in the field to work with the women of the farm . ) By V . Stephens Farm life of today presents as many problems as in the days when the farmer sowed his grain by hand and threshed it with a flail , and the house-wife carded and spun the wool and wove it in to cloth . Great changes have taken place , and much advancement has been made in every line which pertains to farm work , but with our modern improvements new problems arise . With the immense areas of land that are ( armed today , new forms of farm motive power were necessary and the farm tractor was Invented . The problems of the farm home necessarily keep pace with those of the operation of the farm , but as yet little attention has been given to their solution either by means of new inventions or the...

A Letter and an Answer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1914

A Letter and an Answer ( Philip Schmitt , an Oklahoma farmer , will desert the farm , because he wants to educate his five children . He wrote a letter to John Fields , editor of the Oklahoma Journal—a grim indictment of educational and other disadvantages of present day rural life . It was a simple unpolished letter , but it struck home . It is merely a specific instance of a situation in many sections of this whole country and is evidence that we penalise the country boys and girls with schools that a self-respecting village often would not tolerate . The County Life Commission said : The schools are held to be largely responsible for ineffective farming , lack of ideals and the drift to town . Small wonder that the Washington state bankers want eoo bankers to go on school boards . Editor Fields , in sending the letter to THE BANKERFARMER , said : This letter states the case so well and sums up the situation so completely that I am sending it to you . It may serve to explain why a...
