Thanksgiving [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

Thanksgiving THE ANNUAL PROCLAMATION of the President is issued . He calls upon us to give thanks for the blessings bestowed on the nation ; like all good soldiers of the Republic we will obey the command . It is probably easier for the President to comply with his proclamation than the ordinary citizen . Providence has certainly been good to him the last twelve-month . It has put him in the highest seat of power on heaven s footstool , where he can crack the whip and see ninety million American freemen stand still and listen . The nations of the earth also pause in admiration of his managerial qualities as ringmaster in the international circus . Even Mr . Huerta , who started a little side show of his own to attract attention to the southward , must realize by this time that he , too , must jump through the hoops when Mr . Wilson gives the sign . And refractory Congress , which heretofore has been a law much to itself to snap _ its fingers in disdain at executive interference , ha...

Jt Jt Jt Farm Wealth [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

Jt Jt Jt Farm Wealth IT IS EASY for dealers in facts and figures to alarm us over the huge concentration of wealth in the possession of certain classes , but let no one make us believe that all the fortunate ones live in the palaces of the Riverside Drive and do business in the vicinity of 26 Broadway . Accumulation of wealth in Wall Street during the last ten years has been huge and ominous , but there has been another development more gratif y ing since it is not confined to the few , but which , if it progresses as it has done in recent years , will make the agricultural class of this country the real aristocracy , and such they deserve to be . The growth in farm valuation in five recent years , as it is revealed in the bulletin of the Agricultural Department at Washington , is most impressive . The facts were developed on inquiry among forty-five thousand correspondents in agricultural communities . The increase in the value of medium quality farms , buildings and improvements i...

Jt Jt Jt A New Education [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

Jt Jt Jt A New Education THE ANNUAL DAIRY SHOW has just been held in Chicago . It is good to see the young men of our state colleges show as much interest in scientific methods of farming as they will show a month hence in the agonizing conflict of their football teams struggling in the Thanksgiving games . A local paper remarks on the change that has been coming over the face of modern education in the last twenty years . A quarter of a century ago the ambitious young man was apt to associate the real cultural life with what was known as the learned professions . The age of science had come , but science was not applied to the practical pursuits of daily life ; in fact , agriculture was the last great occupation of all to get the benefit of scientific methods . Since then we know the story . Our agricultural colleges are filled with young men who , but for the fascination of the studies presented there , would now be drifting into the overcrowded professions of law and medicine . W...

« G » « 3 * V * Feast of Fruits [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

« G » « 3 * V * Feast of Fruits THE OLD JEWS had some customs which we ought to imitate . They had frequent annual gatherings when their patriotic and religious spirit was quickened , and the ties of brotherhood were knitted more closely together . One of these annual celebrations came at the close of the harvest in Autumn . The prosperity of the husbandman was celebrated ; fruits of the fields were heaped up on the altars . It was a time of rejoicing and the giving of thanks to the God who gave the harvest . A prominent minister in St . Paul or Minneapolis has adopted this custom by giving an entire Sunday service to such a celebration . It would be a good thing both in country and city churches . We have a national holiday to celebrate patriotism ; we have Labor Day , when the eye of the nation is turned toward the lessons of dignity in manly toil ; why not a Farmers Day , on which we can stop and contemplate the rich rewards that come each year from an occupation in which nearly ...

The Cause of the Crows [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

The Cause of the Crows WE ARE LEARNING something every day . We used to think that toads , snakes and lizards bore a curse which justified their wanton killing , but a wise gardener will not kill them , for he knows that they are his efficient helpers in conquering insect life which devours plants . The slaughter of birds has led to the complete extinction of whole species with its myriads of members . The calamity would have gone on unchecked had not wise legislation intervened . Even this legislation , we suspect , has not covered with its protection the maligned raven , known in the cornfield as the black crow . We know him for the damage he has done in following the corn row and picking out the toothsome kernels which we have carefully planted . Brigades of gun men have been assembled to put him out of existence , but still he perists , fortunately it seems , according to the bulletin just issued by the Department of Agriculture . This feathered biped , which farmers have been s...

Scientific Farming [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

Scientific Farming FAR BE IT from us to decry any movement that has for its sincere object the betterment of country life , but as we read of the great multiplicity of boost work that is being done for the poor farmer by the men who do not know a toothpick from a crowbar , we wonder whether the farmer will not take this vast altruism as a big joke . If he is wise he will welcome help from any quarter , but if he is wise he will also remember that agriculture has been a long time in the making . New schemes and methods will be sifted carefully by the man of experience and not adopted rashly because some man from town appears in the community with an armful of bulletins and proceeds to do everything in a different way .. We remember old Si Collins who used to live out near Seekonk . You remember him , said the station master , as we stopped to loaf a moment for a bit of gossip at the country depot . . ... * You mean that chap that always had a way of doing things different from anyone...

November is a good month to buy breeding stock . Buy them bred and-save the best increase . Jf Js J * Clean up the orchard and burn the rubbish . Likewise the garden , and give it a good coat of manure and a plowing . Leave no harboring places for insects , fungus , mice or rats . JS Js J * Keep the fall litter growing steadily . Six months from now they should be ready for market at about 250 pounds . Skim milk , corn meal , middlings and a little tankage will do the business . Jt jt Jt Lay in a good supply of apples for winter use . Apples should be stored in a cool , moist place . The great majority of house cellars . are too warm .

Farm Accounting [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 November 1913

Farm Accounting By President W . O . Thompson , Ohio State University T HBBANKSBS of the middle west would not think institutions of the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of declaring their independence of the banking bat what is more to the point all these banking institutions have recognized certain banking principles and methods as essential to their own integrity , safety and prosperity . From the very nature of the case the farmer seems to have operated indepently . As a result his finished product is handed over to commercial interests and the complaint has been that his own returns have been out of proportion to the profits made upon these products after they have left the farm . The farmer feels that the agitation concerning the high cost of living is an indictment of somebody else and that he can not be justly charged with bringing it about . It is perfectly obvious that no statistics are available to prove that American agriculture is universally or even generally profitable . I...

The Advance of thc Milking Machine ( t i i , , ( c 1 The business of dairying is sweeping the country . It is no longer centered in the east . It has steadily advanced into the west following the trail of fences and high-priced lands . There is a reason for the rise of the dairy industry . The best reason in the world . There is money in it . A rational system of dairying conserves the fertility of farms and every week or month there is a substantial milk or cream check . The greatest drawback to the dairy industry has always been the labor problem . Asked why he does not go into vast improvement , but again the calves had been underestimated . The new machine was studied constantly . It was nwb better than the first type but still -lot perfect The mouth of the calf constituted the most perfect milker .
