BERKSHIRES IN 1900 . / [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 December 1899

BERKSHIRES IN 1900 . / Mr . Geo . F . Weston , of Biltir ; , re , N . C , writes : It would be a lost opportunity were this hand book allowed to go to press without- a word of congratulation to every breeder and admirer of the Berkshire upon the prominent position which this breed now occupies . Leading all other breeds both in the number of sales made and average price received , there is today so active a demand that many are sold out of everything in s % ht and booking orders months aheaik It is gratifying to know that this has been brought about by the sterling qualities of the breed ( which have met the climatic changes of every state and the requirements of the market , ) and almost as much by the ~ class of men who have been backing the breed . No fictitious sales or like methods have been used to boom the Berkshire . Its growth in popularity has been steady and continual , and therefore must continue . It is to be hoped that every friend of the Berkshire will strive to make ...

Toastmaster and Gentlemen : After the eloquent remarks of our toastmaster , I can hardly add anything * of interest , but I stand ready at all times to contribute to the success and popularity of the great American Berkshire breed of swine . The Berkshire hog will always convert his ten bushels of corn into 100 pounds of pork , in fact the white or yellow corn , of our common county , is the bullion which he transmits into silver and golden coin at a ratio of 16 ounces avoirdupois to the pound of pork . Gentlemen , the well bred Berkshire hog is a mint and this mint is honest . There is no flat Berkshire hams and bacon . Ool . Rees has eloquently referred to the par * played by our hog in mediaeval and modern warfare , and allow me to add the suggestion that it was breakfast bacon , Berkshire bacon , I am informed , which refreshed and inspired Admiral Dewey and his marines to complete the notabl...

COUNTRY TELEPHONE LINES [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1900

COUNTRY TELEPHONE LINES < By M . L . Carr . The most unpleasant feature of farm life is its isolation . Remove this and you will have stopped the so-called rush to the cities . In our agricultural states where the farms are large , the houses are necessarily far apart , which is a huge barrier to social intercourse and lt is social intercourse which makes life worth the living . Naturally in the course of time as the population increases the large farms will be divided , bringing neighbors nearer both in a physical and a social sense . But this can come about only in the course of many years and very gradually . By some means such as the telephone , good roads , country trolley lines or something else we must seek to effect the same thing sooner . The cheapest and easiest gotten of these is the first named— -the telephone . Of course the telephone cannot transport one bodily into the home of a neighbor , but it can at least enable him to enter it for conversational purpos...

THE BEST HOG TO RAISE [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1900

THE BEST HOG TO RAISE Hon . A . J . Lovejoy writes : What kind of hog is most in demand ? What shall we as farmers breed to receive the most profit from , in the shortest possible time ? There has been of late a great hue and cry about the bacon hog and there are many who think we should return the type of thirty or forty years ago , thus losing all the improvements made in the feeding qualities of our modern hog . The markets today are paying more for the fat backs , the corn-fed hog than for any other class , and to show you that even In London , England , and Limerick , Ireland , what is thought of American liacon and hams , I will quote again : The principal reason that our pork products are discriminated against abroad . Is because it is of a better quality , and sells cheaper than their own home production . It ls a well known fact that the highest priced fancy pork products sold in Ireland by the Limerick dealers were put up in Chicago , and by special instructions marked wit...

• ME MOODY AND THE PRESS [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1900

• ME MOODY AND THE PRESS Mr . Moody preached to thousands who never saw him . The value of printer s Ink was ever present in his thoug-ht . No public speaker ever lived , unless it were Wendell Phillips , who was so solicitous of the welfare and respect of the reporters of the dally press , or did so much in a proper way to get and keep on the right side of newspapers , and this without abating in any way his criticisms of what he believed to be some of the evils of journalism . In planning for an evan-. gelistic campaign in any city , one of his first instructions to the local committee was to prepare the way in the press , and after he had begun work he fostered with deliberate device every means of preaohlng to the larger multitude who , df they could not enter his meetings , might * be won to read about them .

FOODS THAT NOURISH [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1900

FOODS THAT NOURISH In Russia , where a peasant often works sixteen hours a day , a laboring man s -usual food is coarse black bread and garlic . The idea that meat is necessary to engender physical force is fast being dispelled . The orang-out-ang , who lives on herbs , nuts and berries , is strong enough to encounter a lion . F lash is a stimulant . The carnivorous animals are rendered ferocious , quarrelsome and restless by meatealing . Animals used for hunting are fed on flesh . A recent writer declares that flesh food often occasions a violent action of the heart , giving rise to heart disease and excitation like that produced by alcohol , which passes away quickly , and the empty stomach craves for more . It is well to distinguish between this condition of excitement and true invigoration . —SuooeML
