The $ 3 , 000 Horse and the $ 30 Teacher—and Other Plain Talks [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

The $ 3 , 000 Horse and the $ 30 Teacher—and Other Plain Talks I KNOW of a certain school district where they very wisely determined By W . H . Miller to raise the quality of their horses . They formed a stock company and bought an imported horse . I am not sufficiently expert in animal husbandry to tell you off hand what breed he was . But he was one of those big fellows , with a leg at each corner like a pile driver , and with bushy whiskers around his hoofs . He was a good one , and cost three thousand great , big , round iron dollars . Being a good horse he could not be trusted with a poor man . So they got a good man , and paid him $ 75 a month to handle and train the horse . Three members of that horse company were the school directors of the district . And they hired a girl to train , teach and handle the children in this same school district where they had a fine horse . She was a slip of a girl , who did not know enough to boil water without burning it . She was one of the ...

Which Fits You ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

Which Fits You ? THIS picture—John P . Mossback , Banker , takes his greatest pride in his conservatism . What he understands by the term is to go away back and sit down . If you observed to him , Nice day , isn t it ? he would not say yes , unless on advice of counsel , with . a rock-ribbed guarantee that his assent to the proposition would not hurt business . Early in life he adopted as his favorite tenet the primitive axiom that bankers should mind their own business and to carry out this fossilized belief , he has encrusted himself in a shell which you couldn t pierce with a German siege gun . He is the best hemmer and hawer in town . He believes that the banker should be set off by himself from the rest of the people in an atmosphere of austerity and chilliness , so as to afford a proper impression of solidity . Undoubtedly he is a good citizen , because he does not get drunk and beat his wife , arid he is honest , but he would not take part in a movement that would involve tak...

Getting Together [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

Getting Together WILL the historian of 1950 , seated at his thoughtwriting machine , say this of our times ? While Europe battled , the United States began to know itself . The banker had paved the way by demonstrating to the farmer that he was not a soulless moneygetter . A better understanding was welded . Cooperation became a fact—not a theory . An inspiring age began . The republic cast off its provincialism and for the first time abandoned its peculiar custom of preferring goods with a foreign trademark to better goods made at home . And when the great war ended , United States goods had found their way to other countries , especially to Latin America . The United States had found itself . Coming back to stern today , Mr . Samuel McRoberts , vicepresident of the National City Bank of New York , recently gave us this illuminating diagnosis of what has ailed Uncle Sam : For a score of years , in respect to business , this country has stood as a house divided against itself . Conf...

Who Will Write This ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

Who Will Write This ? THIS magazine knows that many bankers , who have been factors in the banker-farmer movement , have been helped within themselves even more than they have helped others . We would give a great deal to be able to print a story of just how the banker-farmer movement has helped some banker spiritually—how it gave him a new outlook on life and humanity . Perhaps one of you will set this down for us . Make it as frank as you want to—you may have your name withheld if you like . A real human document like this would do much good . That is why we want it . To Farmer Readers . MORE farmers than ever are reading this little magazine . They should understand that , first of all , it is published to inspire the American banker to cooperate with the farmer . It makes no pretense to be a farm journal as the term is understood . That field is already well filled . But there seems to be a little place in the sun all our own where we can do good in inspiring both banker and far...

Farmers Should Keep Inventory and Books—a Bank Tells How [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

Farmers Should Keep Inventory and Books—a Bank Tells How THE average farmer has more capital involved than By the Lancaster ( Wis . ) State Bank the average business man , and some farmers have a great deal more . On the basis of capital , the average farmer is just as much of a business man as the man who has a store or a shop . Surely , the business side of farming is worth the attention of the farmer as much as the agricultural side of his farm . You might safely say nearly all of the farmers do- not pay enough attention to the business side . Lets take a look at the methods used by a store keeper and other business men and see if they cannot and should not be applied and used in operating a farm . Of course there are some differences in the nature of farm and mercantile business , and some things we need not consider . For example , the merchant during the year sells many articles on credit and has many accounts to keep with customers . This is not the case on the farm . The far...

Have you ever done anything worth while for this City or the Commercial Club ? Be honest with yourself in answering this question . Paying your bills can not be considered—the law compels you to do that . Building or improving city property is not eligible—your motives were entirely personal in that . Being honest and square with your family and your business associates will not be accepted—American chivalry and manhood is the prompter here .

Livestock for Your Community ? Read About Texas' Plan [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

Livestock for Your Community ? Read About Texas Plan HOGS ! Lots of hogs ! And then more of em ! That is the slogan of the agricultural committee of the Texas Bankers association , which , by cooperation between bankers , merchants and farmers , hopes to induce Texas to produce its own pork . The plan by which bankers and merchants cooperate to place good brood sows on farms will be of interest to all bankers in other states who have been interested in bringing livestock and who have done their share . The Texas idea has the advantage of enlisting the whole community in the movement . It is outlined by Joe Hirsch , chairman of the Texas committee , as follows : Call a meeting of local bankers and merchants . Assign a small committee , men well acquainted with the farmers , to select twenty-five or fifty or one hundred farmers . Pick out good men , honest , industrious , who will take proper care of the stock . Urge them to put in the animals and fence their pastures for the proper c...

How a Banker-Farmer is Teaching Cotton Tenants to Diversify [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

How a Banker-Farmer is Teaching Cotton Tenants to Diversify FOR fifty years cotton was king on the big plantation belone By Victor H . Schoffelmayer ing to J . E . Lightle , cashier of the Union Bank and Trust company of Searcy , Ark ., in the heart of the cotton country , but not a stalk of cotton will be grown on the 640 acres henceforth . Instead , the tenants have been told to forget all they ever knew about cotton and to transform themselves into general farmers , growers of diversified crops and raisers of cattle and hogs . The banker-farmer called the tenants before him last October and told them that not another acre of cotton should be planted . They demurred . Some of them said they would either raise cotton or more . Mr . Lightle stood firm . He told them he wanted them to remain and would help them to engage in more profitable farming . He outlined his plan for raising feedstuffs sufficient to keep a large herd of cattle and hogs and told them of the necessity for crop r...

What Every Banker Ought to Know About Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

What Every Banker Ought to Know About Agriculture Cultivation BY using proper methods in the preparation of the seed bed and providing good subsequent tillage , in cultivated crops , much can be done in the matter of improving crop yields . It is not to be expected that an increase in the yields , can be made indefinitely by simply employing better methods of tillage , nevertheless poor cultivation is all too frequently the factor which first limits production . No land owner can afford to neglect tillage and reduce his profits , especially when his land is otherwise capable of producing much better harvests . Good tillage aids in liberating plant food , in placing the soil in proper physical condition for plant growth and in destroying weeds which are so detrimental to all crops . In preparing a good seed bed every operation should be carefully performed . In turning under cornstalks or other crop residues , care should be taken to see that this material is thoroughly covered and t...

What Every Banker Ought to Know [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1915

What Every Banker Ought to Know ( Continued from page 15 ) large crops in the rotation , although on most worn soils the initial application may well be much heavier . Lime needs to be supplied under average conditions to furnish abundant calcium , especially for clover , and to correct soil acidity , and tp better the physical conditions in the soil . The bacteria useful in converting nitrogen into nitrates and for other purposes will not thrive in soils that are acid . Such soils are neutralized by the use of lime . The most practical method of adding lime to the soil is by the application of ground limestone at the rate of two tons per acre every four years . Limestone , the carbonate of calcium , or carbonates of both calcium and magnesium ( which may be needed as plant food ) will promote better physical conditions and will correct soil acidity . In conclusion , then , nitrogenous organic material in the form of legume crops and farm manure , rock phosphate , and ground limesto...
