Money For Moving Crops [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

Money For Moving Crops THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA seems to have a Secretary of the Treasury who is alive to the interest of the greatest asset the treasury has—the American farmer . His name is McAdoo and he has done other notable works before now . We all know , who have had crops to move , how every year at the time when the hum of the thresher was heard in the land the hue and cry of tight money would go up from the banks—first the big banks in the centers of trade and then our own little country banks , where we knew the cashier personally and he could tell our handwriting better than we could ourselves . It was like unto a lot of poll-parrots . When the big parrots up in the city said squawk , the little parrots in the country squawked so piteously that we all choked up and wept tears of sympathy , though we did not quite understand the reason of it all . Certain it is that those little banks were in a bad way . They did not have the money because the big banks in the city wo...

The Farm Boy and the College [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

The Farm Boy and the College THE SCHOOLS OPEN THIS MONTH . It is a blessed opportunity our children have of going to school There thev acquire something which no one can wrest from them , something which thieves do not steal nor moth eat , nor rust corrode—educa tion . Every better farmer worthy of the name sees to it that his children have a better education than he himself was privileged to receive . The country schools are undergoing improvement . The movement is even belated ; we are just now becoming awakened to the needs of our country schools and the great service they should render in training the youth to better love the country about them . to understand it and the living to be made there . The secondary schools likewise have a great work and should be attended universally by every farm boy and girl in the land . But what of the college ? That is a question which is most often decided in the family circle . Where shall the boy and the girl go to receive the higher educatio...

Crusading for Good Roads [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

Crusading for Good Roads AGAIN IT IS MISSOURI which points the way . a good way , too , high in the center and hard , so that the water will run off without the chance of making mud . Mud has a lot of dirt to answer for in this world . It has caused many a farmer to lose his temper and his religion at the same time . Usually , however , when the wagon wheel sinks to the axle , one cannot find words to do justice to the occasion , and so it passes uncelebrated—which , indeed , is for the best . Out in Missouri they have been talking good roads . Everyone was preaching good roads . The preaching did not seem to lessen the depth of the mire a great deal , though one would expect the hot air to have a decidedly drying effect . In Missouri after awhile the audience gets tired of wind and demands to be shown . The governor of Missouri took the good roads enthusiasts at their word and issued a proclamation , and said that they would see what they would see . The proclamation called on all ...

, J . Ja Ja The State Fair THIS MONTH sees the opening ot tne state lair season . In toto , it will be the greatest display of agricultural products and farm live stock which any nation of the world has ever staged . Each state provides a fair . Many of them are mammoth expositions worth traveling across a continent to behold . Here each commonwealth invites the world to come with the best and beat the best within her own borders . This brings together displays which , in the scope of their educational value , are not duplicated in any land . Every farmer who can possibly get away should take the time to journey to the fair of his own state at least .

• J * t _™ t _ m Co-operation in Agriculture THE MOST significant national movement in the field of agriculture at the present time is co-opera-tion . This applies to the management of the farm , the selling of the farm products , and the financing of the entire enterprise , as well as to rural society and the pleasures of the country . Theremust be a great central lodestone of virtue in the idea to attract the attention of so many minds . And indeed there is . Wise co-operation is destined to solve many of the most vexing problems of the modern agriculture which has grown up out of the wilderness and is now ready for real development and efficient management . A large commission with representatives from almost every state has just returned from Europe , where a study was made of the well-known European co-operative enterprises , with special regard to finance . Senator Fletcher has already introduced a bill into Congress providing for a comprehensive scheme of finance for the farm...

Better Farming [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

Better Farming FOR ALL the centuries that soil has been soil , man has been striving for the present age—the day of better farming . As sure as civilization follows savagery , as sure as peace follows blood-shed , as sure as education follows ignorance , as sure as plow follows axe , so sure was better farming to follow wood-ranging and game-stalking on the prairie . It is inevitable that better farming should replace soil mining as that Beatitudes replace Mosaism and this 20 th century is the beginning century of better farming . All the signs of the times spell—better farming—all the people of the earth are glad for better farming ; all the men who live and love want to help at better farming . Better farming is no accident . Better farming is the expression of an economic law as important as the one of supply and demand . The history of agriculture is a vital , throbbing truth . All agriculture , like all Gaul , is divided into three parts . It reads so in every country and in ev...

Jt J . Ja Getting Into Purebreds [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

Jt J . Ja Getting Into Purebreds THE EDITOR knows a young man who has loved cattle ever since he was old enough to know a cow from a clothes horse . When he demanded toys , St was a cow that he wanted , a great wooden cow , covered with furry stuff that did nut have the good , real smell of a real cow , but rather betrayed its origin to some cast-off city cat . And when he could first toddle out of doors it was the cows that he wanted to drive . He even had two cow-licks amongst the shock of red hair that covered his head . And seeing that his ain grandfather had made a reputation at raising coos j n Caledonia , it was not surprising that the bairn should evince these cattle-loving propensities . As the boy grew his desire to be a great cattleman grew with him . And he set about it . B y the time he was sixteen he had saved enough to buy a pure-bred heifer of his favorite breed . Before he was through high school he had somewhere gotten hold of and studied , with the zeal of one wit...

Improving Wheat Yields How Wheat Is Improved by Breeding [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

Improving Wheat Yields How Wheat Is Improved by Breeding In considering the possibilities of improving crop production in this country , comparisons often have been made in recent years of the wheat yields of our country as compared with those of European countries . For example , the average production of wheat in the United States is 14 bushels to the acre ; that of Germany is 29 bushels . It is to be recognized , of course , that a large share of this increased production must be assigned to the attention given to the fertility of the soil . It appears , however , particularly in the last few years , that aside from the care which has been given to the matter of improved soil conditions , another force of tremendous influence has been operating to produce that effect , and this is the close attention that is being paid to the matter of seed improvement . Great stress is laid upon the importance of testing different strains and varieties of the various farm crops with the object o...
