Jl J « Jt The New North [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jl J « Jt The New North THE ARTICLE appearing in this issue of Better Farming on page 5 , descriptive of conditions in that part of the American continent which might be called The New North , will doubtless bring a revelation to most of our readers as it did to ourselves , when for the first time last summer , we witnessed the result of what has been going on in Western Canada in the last few years . We are prepared to believe now , what seemed like a silly prophesy uttered a year ago by a well known American . He said confidently that Winnipeg in twenty-five years will have a population of a million people and that Saskatoon , Edmonton , Moose Jaw , Medicine Hat , Calgary and Pr nce Albert , all prosperous municipalities , each ministering to a vast territory , will have populations from one hundred thousand to half a million . If these estimates seem extravagant , we would better recall what has happened in our own northwest in the last twenty-five years . Seattle and Tacoma , wh...

The Star of Bethlehem [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
The Star of Bethlehem Over the hills of Bethlehem A white star hung one night ; The low , gray walls of the little town All lay tn a silvery light . Over the hills of Bethlehem The Shepherds came from far ; Where is the baby King , they said , Who leadeth by His star ? Over the hills of Bethlehem The great white star hung low ; And they found the King on a manger throne , • Alight with the stars soft glow . Over the hills of Bethlehem ; To herald the kingly birth , The angel choirs in gladness sang Of joy and peace on earth . —Mary A . Lathbury .

Christmas [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Christmas IF THE MAN of Nazareth had given the world nothing more than the day on which we celebrate his birth , he would have given us enough to justify all the tribute of money , blood and tears which Christianity has cost us . Christmas is the one celebration in which the entire civilized world participates . There are fast days peculiar to various religions . There _ are national holidays peculiar to the various nations , but Christmas belongs to the world—the Christian world , so called , and the Non-Christian also . No man is so callous as to be indifferent to the fine sentiments which this day inspires . It is notable and well proved that as each century rolls by , the influence of the divine Character whose mortal career began on this anniversary becomes more potent . The star over Bethlehem which drew the wise men from the far east and compelled the humble shepherds on the judean hills to fall prostrate in adoration and worship , still shines , and shines more brightly and ...
J 1 - c _» Jl A Good Will Era [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
J 1 - c _» Jl A Good Will Era WE CAN CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS this year with exceptional rejoicing . It is doubtful if in a hundred years we can find in the history of this people , a period in which national unity and good feeling are so widespread . It was just about one hundred years ago that the old federal party with all the bitterness and animosities and birth-pains which accompanied the founding of the republic , passed away . With the inauguration of President Monroe partisan strife ceased and the nation enjoyed at least ten years of rollicking good fellowship . This was broken by the advent of that old warrior soul , Andrew Jackson , into national politics . For more than thirty years the country , in a political sense , was a seething caldron . The fires of civil hate grew fiercer and fiercer until there was an overflow of hot passion in the early sixties , and the scalding wounds of the great war between the states have but very lately been healed . It seems almost a Providenc...
Jl Jl Jt Here ' s For Christmas [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jl Jl Jt Here s For Christmas Better Farming is finishing the most prosperous year it has enjoyed since the paper was founded in 1877 and named The Farm Field and Fireside . From small beginnings , it has steadily forged ahead , but never with such conquering speed as in the last twelve months ; especially in the last eight months since it has been published under its new and modern title—Better Farming . It has become a national force in the richest fcrming states of America with a circulaton of over 323 , 000 sobscrbers . We have been trying to find some way in which we could share with our subscribers some of our prosperity , for which we owe them , more than thanks . It is not our policy to distribute costly premiums . We prefer rather to put the equivalent of their cost into editorial matter which will give our subscribers more than value received . At this Christmas season , however , we feel justified in distributing a little package , the contents of which will be suitable f...
Jl Jt Jl The Doggone Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jl Jt Jl The Doggone Farmer WE RECENTLY spoke in these columns about the many voluntary and philanthropic agencies at work at the present time to assist the farmer and show him how to farm . It is surprising what meekness and receptivity he shows these anxious benefactors . A professor , in one of our State Agricultural Institutions , has recently observed that everybody , except the farmer himself , appears very much concerned about his welfare ; all are striving to devise some means for his happiness and improvement and to keep him in the country . It is wonderful to see what a lot of agricultural information is stored in very unexpected places ; For instance , as another editor has lately observed , If you go to buy a piano in a big city , just as . likely as not , the salesman wilt pass from a fit of enthusiasm over the instrument he is showing you to a little dream he is cherishing concerning a return to the soil . It is absolutely certain that he will do so if you tell him tha...
Jl Jt Jt More Meat in Sight [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jl Jt Jt More Meat in Sight DONT LET YOURSELF believe that the editor of Better Farming is agajnst scientific agriculture , or is against the man who appears to be dealing ehtirely in theories . The most useful facts in the world were born of theories , and much despised ones too . Every architectural edifice which runs its majestic columns to the skies must first have been born in the brain of the architect . Some very practical inventions have issued from brains which were thought to be crazy enough to belong to a March hare . Some very useful suggestions have likewise been born from what looked at the time like a species of delirium tremens . Probably it was only the fine character of Sheldon Jackson which saved him ^ rom the suspicion of being half drunk with his own conceit , when twenty years ago he proposed to the government that it buy a small herd of reindeer in Siberia and ship them to Alaska . Sheldon was a little man about five feet high , a Christian missionary up under...
Jt , Jt Jt -A Big Contract [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jt , Jt JtA Big Contract NOW THAT THE TARIFF and currency questions have been practically put on the shelves and removed for a while from political debate , we may anxiously turn to new problems to wrestle withf A big convention of temperance workers in Columbus , O ., heartened by successive victories over the drink evil , has proposed a start on a thorough war against the liquor traffic and nail up the doors and windows tight on every American saloon before 1920 . That is a brave challenge , but they will have our help and blessing . Nobody , who has not lived in a state where the saloon is an outlaw and practically unknown , can appreciate what a change in social conditions comes with the banishment of the open traffic in drink . William Allen White , editor of The Emporia Gazette , describes a little tour through . Central Kansas made by one hundred and fifty men motoring from town to town for trade extension purposes . They were merchants , lawyers , doctors , editors , clerks ...
Jl Jl Jl Community Club Rooms [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 December 1913
Jl Jl Jl Community Club Rooms POOR BLEEDING KANSAS as we used to call her , has got a lot of . good ideas , and they don t all lie within the sphefe of moral philosophy . t It was the first state to give us a BJue Sky Law which forbids financial fakirs going to her people and selling them a lot of printed matter which looks like stocks and bonds , but is really a certificate of ownership in wild-cat companies which have no more intrinsic value than a chunk of atmosphere . She is now showing us how to develop the community life of our villages and agricultural districts . An example of what is being accomplished is found in the little town of Solomon , in central Kansas . There is situated the most successful cooperative grain buyers association in that part of the state . It has existed a dozen years and owns two elevators , which handle hundreds of thousands of bushels of wheat each season . Needless to say , Solomon is surrounded by prosperous farms . When the school board met las...

WOOMOW jnuotra WAY or RIDING A DONKEY WHEN WOODROW WILSON wis a candidate for the Presidency some of his opponents assured us that as a professor of political economy he was O . K ., but as president of the United States he would be as clay in the hands of the political potters in Washington , D . C . Now the chief complaint of his opponents is that President Wilson is the greatest boss and ring master that ever run a political circus . Thats what he was elected for , and if he can tie a knot in the tail of the Elephant and Donkey and make them do team work we may give ) i ___ a second term .
