g ^ YOUNG^ v « -EICRM FOLKS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1913

g ^ YOUNG^ v «- EICRM FOLKS The Stolen Custard /;/ haste I bore the tidings ; My darling , I m afraid Your Pussy-cat has stolen the custard that you made . I feared a burst of weeping , But saw with glad surprise , A look of joyous rapture Light up the childish eyes . Oh , Auntie ! Im so ttattercd To have dear Pussy feel That I can make a custard That s good enough to steal . —Esther B . Tiffain The Second Table Some boys are mad when comp ny comes to stay for meals . They hate To have the other people eat while boys must wait and wait ; But I ve about made up my mind I m different from the rest . For , as for me , I blieve I like the second- table best . To eat along with comp ny is so trying , for it s tough To sit and watch thc victuals when you dassent touch thc stuff .

The Land Famine [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

The Land Famine THE HUNGER for land is as keen as ever . This was proved last month when nearly 100 , 000 people registered for an opportunity to draw a chance to buy quarter sections of land in Northern Montana in what has been known as the Fort Peck Indian Reservation . There are only about four thousand quarter sections available and for every quarter section there are about twenty-five eager applicants . Considering the fact that this land is not as good as the average farm land in the United States and not as good by far as much other land in the wonderful new state of Montana , we can not get away from the fact that we are approaching a day when thc agricultural acreage will command a high premium . In some of the states of the middle west values have already ascended to a point that hovers close to $ 200 . 00 an acre . While this seems high it must still be remembered that it is low as com pared with the price set on no better lands in countries of the old world . Four hundre...

The Beef Problem [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

The Beef Problem THE FAMINE in land is a problem by no means so serious or impending as the famine in beef . The situation is becoming so acute that it formed the principal subject of discussion at the recent meeting of the American Meat Packers Association . It appears from facts presented at that meeting that while the population of the United States has increased sixteen million in the last ten years , which means an increase of twenty-one per cent , there has been an increase of only eleven and one-half per cent in thc entire number of live stock in the civilized world . The situation as respects this country is becoming more serious when we reflect that of our increase in population eleven million , or eleven-sixteenths , has taken place in cities and towns having a population of more than 2 , 500 . This means that the ratio of population increase in each town and country is almost three to one . There are now three more consumers to one producer as compared with ten years ago ...

A Chance for Rural Credit [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

A Chance for Rural Credit THE FACT is that thousands of . farmers would go into the live stock business immediately if they had the capital to start with . It takes money to go out and buy a band of sheep or a herd of cattle , or even a small drove of hogs . There is no reason why a farmer who wishes to enlarge his business should not find it as easy to get the money to do so as it is for a merchant or a manufacturer who wishes to enlarge trade . This is where a system of rural credits would fit in fine and would benefit not only thc farmer but thc entire country by increasing thc supply and thereby reducing the cost . We are pleased that we have the word of our President that this important legislation will have attention immediately after the present program is completed in the special session of Congress . We publish in this issue President Wilson s assurance on this subject and we have confidence enough in the man to believe that he will make good .

_» i ~ v ~ ' Triumph Through Tears [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

_» i ~ v ~ Triumph Through Tears THE DROUTH in thc great southwest this year has brought to that section enormous loss and suffering , it has also wrought many lessons in human helpfulness and neighborly feeling , which have been as pleasant to hear as the story of distress has been sad . A man who is fortunate enough to have a water hole , while his neighbor and neighbor s stock were parching with thirst , did not consider that his good fortune entitled him to close his gates and hog his rights . Water from his . well , so long as the water would last , became thc property of everybody , even though the owner might need that water for future use and knew that if he gave it away he would suffer through his generosity . This fine spirit of neighborly helpfulness was not confined to thc farm communities . The townspeople also lent a hand . Even the bankers , who twenty years ago were the most unpopular lot in the states of the southwest , carried ho ** „& . - men to the fu...

President Wilson ' s Word to The Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

President Wilson s Word to The Farmers The President has given the following statement to the farmers of the country who are looking to him to give them the long desired legislation , establishing a system of rural credits : Again and again during the discussion of thc currency bill , it has been _ urged that special provision should be made in it for the facilitating of such credits of the farmers of the country who stand in need of agricultural credit as distinguished from ordinary commercial and industrial credits . Such proposals were not adopted because such credits could be only imperfectly provided for in such a measure . The scope and character of the bill , its immediate and chief purpose , could not be made to reach as far as the special interests of the farmer require . Special machinery of a distinct system of banking must be provided for if rural creditors are to be successfully and adequatel y supplied . A government commission is now in Europe studying thc interesting...

j . j . j . Where Corn Is King [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

j . j . j . Where Corn Is King KING COTTON no longer holds undisputed primacy in the so-called cotton states . King Corn is elbowing his way and disputing the supremacy of cotton . While the general fact has been known for two or three years past , it will doubtless surprise many to know that the world s record of corn production on a single acre belongs not to thc fat corn lands of Illinois , Iowa or Missouri , but to the hitherto despised section of the southcast where turpentine and tall timber until recently have been about the only products . A young farmer , though handicapped by the name of Batts , living near Raleigh , N . C , raised 226 bushels on one acre . He planted forty acres from the same seed and his entire crop compared favorably with that of the previous year , which supposedly enjoyed an exceptional and intensive cultivation . Reports from the entire state of North Carolina show that in two years corn average has increased more than twenty per cent . If other Gulf...

Science and Religion m Harmony [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

Science and Religion m Harmony IT IS the duty of a paper like this to make editorial note of the big events that are _ happening even when they do not relate to live stock and agriculture . One of the biggest things that has happened this year at least was the 1 meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in London last month when Sir Oliver Lodge in his opening address declared in substance : that science not only lacks proof against the fact of immortality but science had many evidences to prove the faith which man has held since time began ; that after death there would be life freer and more glorious than that which we have in mortal body . It is now nearly fifty years ago that the new science which was born of the startling theory of Chas . Darwin that all life is a mere matter of evolution began to assert itself and the age of materialism in which the value of the spiritual and non-material was discounted . In consequence there was supposed to be an impas...
