Who ' s Who In Berkshires [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
Who s Who In Berkshires What Frierson &amp; Hollingsworth s Berkshires Have Won Shreveport , La . Editor Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . The subject you have so kindly , but rashly asked me to discuss is one associated with so many pleasant memories and carries me back so near the halcyon days of youth , that in my feeble attempt to comply I fear you will liken me to the old colored parson , who was noted for preaching very long sermons . On , one occasion , when he had been exhorting his congregation an unusually long time , he said , Brethren , I have consumed just two hours and fifty minutes of your time and have only discussed the Major Prophets . We will now proceed to discuss the Minor Prophets . Where shall we place Hosiah ? At this juncture , one of the deacons in the church , who had been getting very tired could restrain his impatience no longer . He rose up and answered back , Parson ! place Hosiah right here , give him my seat , Ive got enough ! Now , if yo...

Just back from the . pier-head , watching them ship Mr . Council s last lot , and I want to say it right here , talcing them as a whole , I dont want to be asked to see another more promising lot than that which leaves this Island today . ( Dec . 20 , 1909 . ) When the news came that Mr . Council , was again on his way to the Island , we farmers said one to another : Hes wasting his time , he is ! After such a heavy export year as this has been , how can he expect to gather enough decent cattle to make it worth while ? When he turned up on my place on the very morrow of his arrival , I thought it well to expostulate with him on the inopportunity of coming thus in the depth of winter . He met my demur with his well known genial smile , and said that anyway , since he was here , he and Phil LeBrocq would have a look round , just fo...
Merely Discarded or Abandoned De Laval Inventions [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
Merely Discarded or Abandoned De Laval Inventions Other Cream Separators It is interesting and instructive to know that nearly , if not quite , every cream separator that has ever been made , and certainly all that are being made at this time , are merely copies or imitations of some type of construction originally invented or developed by the De Laval Company , and either not used by it because of something more practical or else discarded and abandoned in the course of De Laval progress and utilization of later improvements . As earlier patents have expired some of their features have one after another been taken up by differnt imitators , so that at all times , as is the case today , every separator made in the United States or elsewhere in the world , utilizes some type of construction originally owned and developed by the De Laval Company , though some of them have never been commercially used by the De Laval Company because of their inferiority to other types of construction u...
A Word From the Southland . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
A Word From the Southland . Mansfield . La . Editor Berkshire World , Springfield , 111 . Dear Sir : —I am just in receipt of the current issue of The Berkshire World and have read it with much interest and . profit . Inclosed find my check for two years subscription . We have only recently settled in the garden spot of agricultural possibilities , and are getting under way with a stock farm . Our plan is to have a dairy with a good herd of registered Jerseys . For foundation we have secured 14 head , mostly young , but all tops . Next in order will be Berkshires . In looking around for a few good ones for a beginning , we noticed that Mr . J . H . Fullilove , Jr ., had been buying some at the Illinois sales . We went to see them , and it did not take long to close a bargain for a young pig that we think will make a herd boar that will do us good . His dam is a picture , and is from such ancestors as Masterpiece , Premier Longfellow , Lord Premier , Lady Premier and four of the Duch...

Natural Fine Ground Phosphate As a Fertilizer . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
Natural Fine Ground Phosphate As a Fertilizer . The problem of permanently enriching the soil and at a minium expense is one which is of the greatest interest to all classes of agriculturists . We have before us quite an interesting little booklet on this subject which endeavors to set forth how this can be done in part by the use of natural fine-ground phosphate . This booklet treats of natural methods of fertilization , tells how to build up the lands and make large crops without the expense of buying high priced complete fertilizer , shows how by proper methods of farming in connection with the use of fine ground Phosphate fully as large increases in crop yields can be obtained as by the use of bone meal or acid Phosphate , and at one-fourth to onethird the cost . One of its most attractive features is a discussion of the application of ground phosphate to animal manures during the feeding of live stock . It shows how at an insignificant expense ground phosphate applied daily to ...

NOTES BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
NOTES BY THE WAY Some Experiences of a Live Stock Artist . Having arranged a sketch trip west , I planned a stop-over at Chicago during the great International . Arriving there Monday evening at my customary hotel , the familiar response came to my inquiry for a room of nothing hut a cot . But after a moment , perhaps because mine was a familiar face , I was granted as a special favor , the last room , a double one for the night only . Next morning , after coffee and rolls , such as Chicago alone knows how to serve , I found my way down to the stock yards , the scene of the great battleground of the breeds of blooded live stock . I cannot attempt to describe this greatest of all shows of its kind , nor is it necessary . More facile pens than mine have told the story from almost every standpoint . These are merely random and disconnected notes . I suppose my experience is that of every other man who has been identified with the live stock business for the past quarter century and as ...

WHAT'S AN ACRE WORTH ? [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1910
WHATS AN ACRE WORTH ? ( Continued from Page 4 . ) pendency lay heavy on the land , these high , dry farms might have been bought at the rate of about six for a quarter—farms that are now , under new management , yielding steady annual returns of twenty or twenty-five dollars an acre . Along with this change has come a widespread , indeed a universal , grad-ing-up of the farm herds . The wisdom of animal-breeding for points is ancient ; but until very lately the farmer who kept a single thoroughbred was looked upon by his neighbors as an aristocrat indulging an expensive and profitless whim . As for them , the scrub and the halfbreed were good enough—all they thought they could afford . But little by little , as the fashion of bookkeeping gained ground and notes were comnared , it was found that the man of whims was making the money , and that , more often than not , the shiftless , hit-or-miss breeding of scrubs wasnt paying expenses . The argument was plain enough : a dairy cow is ...
