Inspiration [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1914

Inspiration WHAT PROMISE does 1914 bring to forwardlooking men , or rather : What will forward-look-ing-doing men bring to 1914 ! It goes without saying that 1914 will be the best of all years as each latter year has been better than the years gone before . It should bring the banker more than promise—it should bring him its richest , greatest gift—Inspiration . How few business publications coming to our desks bring inspiration , arouse any emotion , suggest that if for no other reason than to move monotony , we have some avocation , some less selfish side-line to bring us recreation , inspiration , a chance to develop some ideals ; and better still , to bind or merge these with business and life . The man who is wrapped up in himself has thin covering . The population from Missouri is growing too large ; there are many more things we should have faith in , not require to be shown ; there are lots of tilings we should believe in that we can not touch , taste , measure or make our o...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 January 1914

How Bankers Are Inspired ( One of the notable , results of the banker-farmer movement has been the inspiration to the banker to labor for the common good . He is being taken out of himself and not the least effect of his interest has been that within himself . An example of this sentiment is found tit the report of the agricultural and vocational committee of the Washington bankers by George P . Wiley , its chairman . Washington is fortunate in having men of such personality and efficiency . ) By George P . Wiley The Country Life Movement is nothing less nor more than an awakened Interest to the rural phase ot our civilisation It is a movement to secure from society fair treatment for agriculture , as an industry , and for the rural people , as a part of society , their just share of the common good . The teaching of agriculture is compulsory in the schools of Washington but In many places the law is a dead letter . There should be leaders In every community pointing out the impract...

The Lever Bill Revised ( Bankers agricultural committees will recall their efforts to have congress pass the ion Lever bill , providing appropriations for demonstration work to the various states if they accepted the provisions of the measure and made cooperative appropriations . The 1912 bill barely failed of adoption . In the 1013 form of the bill changes were made which tended to put the direction of the work largely under the V . S . department of agriculture , rather than the state colleges and smacked of politics if unwisely administered . Since that time the bill has been amended and as now constituted , President Thompson of Ohio State university , chairman of the executive committee of the American Association of Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations , believes it should , pass . ) By W . O . Thompson The most recent amendments have stricken out Section 4 which provides- for a Director of Co-operative Agricultural Extension Work in the Department of Agriculture . Th...

ABRAHAM LINCOLN [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1914

ABRAHAM LINCOLN Bom February 12 , 1809 1 V / JY opinion of them ( fanners ) is that , in proportion to numbers , they are neither better nor worse than other people . DUT farmers being the most numerous class , it follows that their interest is the largest interest . It also follows that that interest is most worthy of all to be cherished and cultivated—that if there be inevitable conflict between that interest and any other , that other should yield . UNQUESTIONABLY it will take more labor to produce fifty bushels of wheat from an acre than it will to produce ten bushels from the same acre ; but will it take more labor to produce fifty bushels from one acre than from five ? Unquestionably thorough cultivation will require more labor to the acre , but will it require more to the bushel ? MO other human occupation opens so wide a field for the profitable and agreeable combination of labor with cultivated thought , as agriculture .
