A Big Bank Engages a Professor ; What He Expects to Accomplish [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

A Big Bank Engages a Professor ; What He Expects to Accomplish NOTHING will contribute more to the prosperity of the Northwest By Prof . H . R . Smith than the more general adoption of diversified farming . For several years this has been a great grain growing section . Soil and climatic conditions have been favorable for the growing of all the small grains including flax ; the early settlers were for the most part men with insufficient capital with which to purchase livestock and a large proportion of those who have more recently occupied the land have been renters . These men have had little concern for the future productiveness and superficial methods of farming have been practiced . Inexperience in the care of farm animals has also kept many from engaging in stock farming . We no longer get the big yields of small grain that were formerly harvested and the land owners are ready for a change . Very fortunately for the Northwest the means are at hand for a complete rejuvenation . ...

The Banker in My Town—What Some Farmers Have to Say About Him [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

The Banker in My Town—What Some Farmers Have to Say About Him The Prize Letter TO the Editor : I cannot tell what all the bankers of my town are doing to help the Farmer , but feel that it will be a great help to the cause to tell some . I find my bankers have realized many years ago that their real welfare was in the way the farmers responded to the real needs of the farm , not the needs of the farmer , and having this subject in view , they first went into the discussion of a farm adviser , which they have not yet got the farming public of our good county to see the great benefit of , but is having good results , as the present interest taken in this matter shows . And next , they have commenced to give moving picture demonstrations of valuable subjects , such as the Dawn of Plenty and The Way to Thrift . Both these demonstrations were largely attended by the people of our county , and the impressions made have helped our young men , as well as older people . There were subjects s...

The Best Slogan for the Banker-Farmer Isn ' t "Go On " , it ' s "Come On" [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

The Best Slogan for the Banker-Farmer Isn t Go On , it s Come On HOW can the banker assist in the better farming movement ? The banker has time to read and study By W . I . Drummond Editor Interstate Farmer He has a good head , or he could not stay in the banking business . He can very easily own and supervise the operation of a farm in his immediate vicinity , thus establishing fraternal feeling . Then by study , observation and experience he can progress along the line he is endeavoring to promote . He will not need to say go on all the time ; he can say come on . He can make experiments , and if they turn out well , the community gets the benefit . Many bankers are doing this . Farming operations cannot be directed from within the four walls of a room , nor can theory successfully advise or direct experience . Farming is a business , and a most complicated one . To encourage it , or assist in any movement calculated to benefit it , a man must understand it . Production alone is n...

The Dual-Purpose Cow—Opposed and Ignored—She Makes Good [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

The Dual-Purpose Cow - Opposed and Ignored - She Makes Good STUDENTS of present day systems of farming are giving much attention to the place of the dual-purpose cow . Opposed by the dairymen and ignored by the beef men , she continues her popularity among the farmers of this , country . Perhaps the cause of these differences of opinion lies in the fact that there is no definite standard yet established as to what a dual-purpose cow really is . The beef animal is rated by his dressing per cent , the dairy animal by her milk yield , while the dual-purpose cow must be valued by her ability to combine the standards of both . Therefore the dual-purpose cow is one that produces a profitable flow of milk , fattens readily when dry , and furnishes a desirable carcass of beef when | | ] ii [ i [ itiiiiiHiii [ itiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiintiiiiiinitHituiniiiiiitiniiiiiiiiTiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiniiiiiiiinitiHiuiiiiitiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiti [ iiiiiiti [ iii To raise more beef cattle ...

The Hope of Agriculture—the Children in the Rural School [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

The Hope of Agriculture—the Children in the Rural School THE hope of the agriculture of the future lies with those who are found on the road to school each morning By Director Jordan N . T . Experiment Station with their dinner pails and bundles of books . Here is the opportunity for constructive work . If out of the generations that are now coming to majority we shall not find the means of an agricultural uplift , then we have serious cause for discouragement . As a means of accomplishing constructive work in the interests of agriculture , with our young people , our college of agriculture and our schools of agriculture already have an established place of great usefulness . But these do not go far enough . If anyone has ever entertained the notion that our college of agriculture , great as it is , will ever train within its walls more than a small percentage of the people on the land , he has entertained a fallacy . The most important function that the college of agriculture will ...

The 365 Day Road Club Man Gives Some Practical Suggestions [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

The 365 Day Road Club Man Gives Some Practical Suggestions ¦¦ inninaM ^^ Since Mr . Clarkson in our February issue told j briefly the story of the 365 Day Road club which brought good roads to Jasper county , Missouri , j he has received many letters from bankers de- j siring more information .

He gives some practical suggestions for the forming of a road club . iiiiiiaHniiniHiiinnniiiM By J . D . Clarkson OUR experience teaches that bad roads are more the direct result of the bad mental conditions of the community than the bad physical or financial conditions .

How a Loser Won [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

How a Loser Won L / VST month we said that we would like to know just how the banker-farmer movement had helped some banker spiritually—how it gave him a new outlook on life and humanity . So a young banker has written us a little letter , setting forth his ambitions and his discouragements . For tie found that doing something for others was not all cakes and ale , as has been the discovery of every man in all time . Since the bankers associations have been active in the farm adviser work , he writes , I have taken a great interest in that work and a year or so ago made an attempt to start the movement in our county , only to be rebuffed and see the work fall flat . Our present state senator last fall devoted the major portion of his talks to a tirade against the movement and its backers . I have had men tell me that everything we bankers did had a personal motive behind it ; that we got on the school board to get the treasurers account ; that our savings advertising had no motive o...

A Friend at Court [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

A Friend at Court A FARMERS wife in California is sighing for a really , truly bathtub . Maybe she will get it sooner than she might have , otherwise , for a powerful friend is taking up the case of the woman on the farm—none other than Uncle Sam . The Department of Agriculture has just published a bulletin containing extracts from some 2 , 000 letters written by farm women , on their social and labor needs . One of these letters asked for the really , truly bathtub . Later reports of a similar nature will deal with domestic , educational and economic needs . Uncle Sam stirred himself when Clarence Poe wrote a letter to the effect that the farm woman had been neglected by the Department . Now the Department , while it had issued bulletins to aid farm women in household work and other activities which fell to their lot , felt there was some justice in the plea . No one who reads this bulletin , with its frank letters , can fail to be impressed by the great need for better things for ...

We Can Always Learn [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

We Can Always Learn THE smartest men in business continually go to school . The farmer would be surprised to know , how many publications with a mission to improve business are read by the business man . The universities are holding short courses in business . When a man says he knows it all —business , farming or any other vocation—he is doomed . Better farming will do more for the credit of the farmer than all the oratory of the ages . The banker who is cooperating with the farmers to improve agriculture is putting in good licks for rural credit . The Door is Open GET into the banker-farmer game . It s the biggest thing that ever happened to the bankers . If there was no return , except the remarkable discovery by the world that a banker was a human being , it would be worth while . The banker who is regarded as an outsider by his own little world has only himself to blame . The banker does not have to pry himself into the banker-farmer movement with a jimmy .

What Wisconsin ' s Bankers Association is Doing for the Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

What Wisconsin s Bankers Association is Doing for the Farmer A SUCCESSFUL farmer must have an evenly matched team , they may not be so valuable ByW . A . von Berg Chairman Agricultural Committee but must work together . The local banker in nearly all the rural communities , is the adviser , as well as the head of the bank of the farmers savings . The Wisconsin college of agriculture after many years hard work has produced grains which far out-yield the average farmers grain , due to the care in breeding . They also have other valuable information to give to the farmer . Thus we have the team— the local banker and Wisconsin college of agriculture . It was in this way that the Wisconsin Bankers Agricultural Contest was started , these contests being held in communities where the local bankers were sufficiently interested to give them a lot of advertising and to interest the local merchants . At these contests samples of pure bred grain and corn are distributed to each farmer having su...

Bank Loans Money for Silos Without Interest—Other Work [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

Bank Loans Money for Silos Without Interest—Other Work DID you ever hear of a banker loaning money without interest ? No ? Nor have you heard of the grocer who sold sugar without profit or of the tailor who fitted you for nothing . But a bank is loaning money without interest . It is not loaning a great sum but just the same it is loaning without pay . It has a good reason . It wants to increase interest in scientific farming and diversified agriculture and believes that the construction of silos will be a great step . So it advertises : Money to loan without interest for the encouragement of scientific and diversified farming . This bank is OConnor Bros . State Bank of Renville , Minn ., and it offers to loan $ 5 , 000 to farmers without interest . This isn t the first time the bank has made this proposition . Two years ago $ 5 , 000 was loaned .

What Every Banker Should Know About Agriculture [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

What Every Banker Should Know About Agriculture Livestock Production THE more general adoption of systems of live stock farming can safely be urged , since it is possible to make live stock production more profitable than grain farming . Some of the advantages of live stock farming briefly stated are : For a series of years most farm products may • be marketed to better advantage through the agency of live stock than when sold direct . Live stock consumes certain by-products of the farm which are otherwise partially or wholly wasted . Live stock production makes it possible to distribute horse and man labor more evenly and economically throughout the year . Animal husbandry necessitates rotation of crops and frequent seeding down . It requires activity and skillful management the year round . It compels the farmer to observe market conditions . It brings him in contact with men both as a buyer and as a seller . And lastly , there is no quicker , more . practicable or economical meth...

Standing Together—the Banker and Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1915

Standing Together—the Banker and Farmer By Elbert Hubbard THE first factor in the evolution -of humanity is mutual aid . A family living in the country is a little community . There is the father , mother , half a dozen children and grandparents . If they lived a purely individual life each adult , when he got up in the morning would start a fire for himself and prepare his own breakfast . But not so . One starts a fire , another goes for a bucket of water , still others go out and take care of the stock . When the meal is ready all partake of it . After breakfast each one goes to work and does the thing he can do best . The girls help their mother put the house in order ; they sew , wash , work in the garden or among the flowers and keep the home presentable and sanitary . The men and boys care for stock , plough or cut down trees for lumber or fuel . The boy too small to work , but who can ride horseback , goes to town on errands or for the mail . The old man rocks the cradle and ...
