The Man Who Should be Helped [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
The Man Who Should be Helped I WANT to buy a farm on long time . I don t expect to have it handed me on a silver platter , but I want sufficient time to pay for it . Just as soon as I can find the farm I want and the opportunity to pay for it on long time , Im going after it . This is what a young Illinois farmer told us the other day . He had visited the college of agriculture to talk over the problem with the leaders there—to ask their advice on where to locate . . He is ambitious . This is the kind of farmer that the ultimate rural credit bill should assist . The banker-farmer plank says that there should be legislation so as to permit the farmer of character , industry and skill in agriculture to acquire a farm of his own on long-time payments . While Uncle Sam Ponders ON the whole the postponement of national rural credit legislation does not seem to have been bitterly resented by the farmers . Southern and far-western farm journals have voiced the most disappointment . Elsewhe...
How Michigan Banks Have Developed the Exhibit Idea [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
How Michigan Banks Have Developed the Exhibit Idea HAVE you an agricultural exhibit in your bank ? Bankers everywhere may well- take a page out of the book of Michigan bankers , Up in Michigan the exhibit idea has developed to a wonderful extent . The work of the banks is conceded to have been an important factor in the upbuilding of the agricultural industries of the state . Just about ten years ago the bankers of Traverse City began making exhibits of agricultural products in a small way . These exhibits were unpretentious and so meager that they attracted scant attention . But , like the mu stard seed , they grew . Now the exhibits by the First National Bank and the Traverse City State Bank have so much merit that they are always visited by men from the Michigan agricultural college and by farmers from all the nearby territory . Last fall the exhibits reached their climax . The First National put on a corn show that would rank well with any held in the state and the State Bank he...
Why the Farmers and the Country Merchants Must Get Together [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
Why the Farmers and the Country Merchants Must Get Together IN many places the chief topic of discussion among farmers is how they can get away from the . price By Clyde Ashley Breeders Gazette domination of the local merchant , how they can buy cooperatively for cash and save on costs ; how they can sell cooperatively and thus either force the local merchant to a higher price or get it otherwise . They forget to take into account the fact that when they buy one or two articles cooperatively , they buy for cash , taking just so much business away from the local merchant and forcing him to carry them for an equal amount . While this is going on the local merchant cuts down on orders , tells the traveling man that cooperative buying is cutting down his trade and making it a credit business ; that now the farmers will let apples rot in the fields if they can not sell direct ; that the corn coming to the grain dealer is soft and the eggs delivered to his store are rotten . The local dea...
Toward Better Things—the Dreamers and Doers are Moving Us [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
Toward Better Things—the Dreamers and Doers are Moving Us The Boy Who Can Dream IT is a good thing for the farmer boy to have an imagination . It is a good thing for him to dream dreams and see visions . It takes a dreamer to see the transformation that intelligent effort will bring to pass on the old place . It takes a dreamer to see how much more desirable that place will be in ten years than a job in a dry goods store . It is the boy who dreams who sees a field of thrifty alfalfa where that stunted yellow corn is growing on the timber forty . It is the boy who dreams who sees those hungry looking cows with burrs in their tails replaced by a herd of dairy matrons that tax the capacity of the milk cans at every milking . It is the boy who dreams who sees a waving cornfield where the cat-tails are growing , who sees a woven wire fence in place of the old hedge , and a new barn where the cow shed is falling to pieces . We need more dreamers on the farm . — Prairie Farmer . The Phonog...

What Banks and Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
What Banks and Bankers are Doing to Help Agriculture FROM Monroe , Pa ., comes the announcement that the National Bank of East Stroudsburg offered an Ayrshire bull calf to the person having the best milk in the contest lasting one month . The object was not only to advance the Ayrshire movement in this county but also to improve the dairy herds that are being kept by the farmers who are really the backbone of financial and commercial prosperity in every section of the country . The last milking in this contest was December 31 st . The matter of recording the quantity of milk which the animals give was made easy by the bank furnishing record sheets for the use of those who entered the contest . The cow making the best record won the prize . The bull calf itself may be worth perhaps $ 250 but this is by no means a measure of the influence which is exerted by a contest of this kind . It is said that practically every cattle breeder in the county entered the contest . Every dairyman in ...
UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
Test Your Seed Corn ! Don t Guess T HERE are 100 , 000 acres of corn in the average county . By seed selection alone the yield could be increased ten bushels per acre . Ten bushels more on 100 , 000 acres is 1 , 000 , 000 more bushels , worth more than half a million dollars to your county . The average ear has six hundred to seven hundred kernels . Each kernel planted three in a hill should produce a cornstalk . Each stalk should produce at least one ear of corn . One hundred ears to a bushel means that each ear of corn should yield six to seven bushels . Your county loses $ 3 . 50 to $ 4 on each ear that will not grow . Seed corn of a good variety , each ear tested and guaranteed to grow , is worth $ 4 to $ 5 per bushel . Bankers ! Go into partnership with your school children ! Provide Rag Doll Junior Seed Corn Testers for all the pupils in your schools . Encourage the children to make a bargain with every farmer to test all seed corn at one cent an ear and to give him a certific...
Where Settlers are Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
Where Settlers are Wanted W HAT we need is more settlers who will introduce a better method of farming , as income now is all from small grain and nothing has ever been returned to the soil , so naturally it has run down until we are compelled to turn to cattle and corn and alfalfa or distress . The average farmer has from a half section to four sections of land to farm and in taking up a different method of farming he will have to dispose of some of his surplus land in order to be able to handle less land and more stock . Our Better . Farming agents have had splendid success with alfalfa and also corn and have shown our hardheaded wheat farmer that the cornbelt can be brought farther north if they could be induced to exert a little push . The Better Farming agent in Cavalier county , adjacent to us on the north , gathered in nearly 800 bushels of matured seed corn this last season and this fact being well advertised , as we are doing , will encourage our farmers to take a more thor...
Banker-Landlord Shows Doubters [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1915
Banker-Landlord Shows Doubters By Charles E . Palmer Bank of Noble , Illinois WE are farming our lands , with tenants in partnership , and are demonstrating that a good LANDLORD makes a good TENANT . One thing we have proved , on our own farms , is that clover will grow on southern Illinois prairie land . We own a farm in Richland county which , at one time , was very heavily timbered . It is conceded that southern Illinois timber land will grow clover but that the prairie will not . On this timbered land we had twenty acres in wheat which we wished to get into clover . Before sowing the wheat we put two and a half tons of lime rock to the acre . We used a fertilizer drill and put on 150 pounds of steamed bone meal to the acre to supply any deficiency in phosphorus . About the first of April we sowed it to clover . The clover came fine and showed every prospect of a fine set . Then came the drouth and in a few weeks there was no clover to be seen . It was all dead—and it is dead yet...

What Waste Costs the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915
What Waste Costs the Farmer WHEN Henry Wallace of Wallace s Farmer says that as farmers we are wasters and that we have not really got down to farming as a business and would be in the poorhouse if not for the richness of the soil , it is surely time to sit up and take notice . He is no alarmist . But when he read of the first annual meeting of the National Association of Dealers and Waste Materials and learned that fourteen million dollars worth of pure tin had been collected from tin cans thrown in back yards and alleys , jt stirred him to a comparison . Here are some of the things he said : Do our readers know that an animal weighing 1 , 000 pounds will produce during the winter season five tons of manure ? This , at present prices of grain , is worth at least two dollars a ton , provided it is applied to the ground when fresh . Do our readers know that , at the price of commercial fertilizers , which sooner or later the farmers of the cornbelt will have to buy , the manure from ...

Some of the Ways the Banker Can Help the Cause of Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915
Some of the Ways the Banker Can Help the Cause of Agriculture THERE is always a close relation and interest between banks and agriculture , between bankers and By Dean J . F . Curtiss Iowa State College farmers . ihe banker finances and stands sponsor for many agricultural operations . Many improvements could not have been made or better methods adopted without the bankers aid . Many more improvements would be made if credit could be obtained on longer and easier terms . The modern well equipped farm requires a large outlay of capital . A careful survey of a thousand typical Iowa farms , over half of which were tenant farms , shows in a striking manner that the tenant farms that have the best improvements and equipment and the best facilities for handling livestock are returning the highest profits to both owner and tenant . This state has suffered by reason of the fact that so much of the money made on the farms has been invested elsewhere . To get more money out of the farms of Io...
