The following excerpt from Bulletin No . 356 shows the conclusion of the New York Station men : The question of the milking machine is closely associated with the personality of the operator . During the experiment the machines have been operated by these different men , all of whom have done at least fairly well in this study , and an attempt has been made to contrast . Unquestionably it takes a higher grade man to operate a milking machine successfully than to hand milk a cow equally well . * • The most important point of this study covers the influence of machiner...

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

^ VBSTQ ^ Fall Care of the Flock Fall is a season of the year when too many farm flocks are neglected . Often the sheep are left to take care of themselves , grazing in a back pasture on short , dried-up grass and with warm , stagnant water to drink . Experienced sheepmen have found such treatment to be unprofitable . Breeding ewes that are good mothers , heavy milkers and have raised one or two lambs must have a period of rest after weaning their lambs , if expected to uphold their vitality , thrift and produce a crop of strong lambs the following season . The lambs should be weaned by the first of September if they were born in March or April , as is the case in most farm flocks . Naturally the ewes will be in rather thin condition after suckling their lambs all summer , but care must be taken not to feed them too nutritious HIGH-GRADE SHORTHORNS ENJOYING A REST and stimulating feeds at this time on account of the danger of the heavier milking ewes getting spoiled udders . If the ...

tJTHE PEOPLES rORUMfr [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

tJTHE PEOPLES rORUMfr Harvest Help EDITOR BETTER FARMING : You talked good sense last month when you spoke of the hired help problem in summer . Why do the farmers have so much trouble every year in getting , or trying to get , men for the wheat harvest ? Better still , why should they not have trouble to get the men ? Is there any reason on top of this beautiful and fruitful earth why men should be loitering about for eleven months for the pleasure of working four weeks—or less—in the wheat harvest ? This is a high-pressure age . Men who amount to anything , who have brains enough to swing a hammer or dig a post hole do not need to be idle a day . Only vagabonds , otherwise called hoboes , play truant these days . And if this be true , which in the words of Theodore Roosevelt , it must be , what sort of work can a farmer expect from a tramp ? There is some excuse for an enlisted man , but absolutely none for the man who shuffles along through the world doing nothing for himself or ...

MUTUAL RELATIONS AND INTERESTS OF THE BELL SYSTEM AND THE PUBLIC [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

MUTUAL RELATIONS AND INTERESTS OF THE BELL SYSTEM AND THE PUBLIC The suit brought by the United States questioning the purchase of certain telephone properties in the Northwest , as well as the pending Interstate Commerce Commission telephone investigation , have caused many inquiries . Without taking up anything going to the merits of these proceedings , it has seemed to us proper to state generally what has been our policy and purpose in the conduct of our business . We have found , or thought that we had , that our interests were best served when the public interests were best served ; and we believe that such success as we have had has been because our business has been conducted on these lines . We believe that our company has an interest as vital as that of the public in the proper administration of the problems of electrical inter-communication . The success and prosperity of our company depend upon a solution of these problems which shall be sound from both the standpoint of...

____ l _ J ^^ f ^^ [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

____ l _ J ^^ f ^^ Making Good Silage The making of good silage is an operation that requires great care . As silage is a green feed preserved in its natural state—or nearly so—in order for it to keep well it must be put away properly . Before tilling , the silo should be gone over carefully , to make sure that it is airtight . Wherever the air has access , we may expect to find a certain amount of spoiled silage . Corn for the silo should not be cut until it is somewhat ripe . The ears should be dented or glazed and the leaves and husks beginning to turn brown . In other words , it should be at such a stage of ripeness that if let stand a few days , it would do to put into the shock . If cut too green , not only will the yield per acre be much less , but a poorer quality of silage will result , as it will be more acid . If allowed to get too ripe it will notpack well and the danger from mold will be SILOING WITH A SMALL PORTABLE ENGINE much greater . If , for any reason , the corn ...
