Shall We Issue Bonds to Build Roads ? Here ' s Sound Gospel [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Shall We Issue Bonds to Build Roads ? Here s Sound Gospel r [ E public is demanding better roads and every community is looking for some one to tell it how these roads tuiuuiu constructed By S . E . Bradt First National Bank , DeKalb , Illinois Member Illinois State Highway Commission ue ana now paid for . Every thoughtful man fully realizes that no adequate road improvement for any community can be carried on without resorting to the borrowing of money ; further that no question involving the expenditure of the people s money could be successful without placing before them a definite plan well grounded in both scientific principle and practical experience . This , however , will avail little without the local leaders to initiate , to plan , to encourage and to carry the enterprise to a successful conclusion . It will require men of conviction , of enthusiasm and determination , men of influence who are willing to sacrifice something for the community in which they live—a task to wh...

Will the Farmer Keen . Books ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Will the Farmer Keen . Books ? t T is not extravagant to assert that the farmer is the only y business man who doesnt keep books . He has a business which generally represents more capital invested than the average merchant—but he doesnt keep books . Of course he scribbles down figures every now and then and makes some kind of an effort when the first of January comes along to figure out where he stands , but that isnt bookkeeping . It is apparent that bankers everywhere are interesting themselves in farm accounting . One banker writes : I have had several farmers come to me and ask my help in getting an inventory of their farm and everything on it , one man remarking that the farmer was the greatest man on earth to value his stuff too high , and he wanted some one to help him keep it near the price it had ought to be , and in every case we have done what we could , but do you know I have been unable to find a book or any set of books that a farmer could handle without the help of a...

Wake Up , Uncle Sam ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Wake Up , Uncle Sam ! CAN- Uncle Sam finally be aroused to take concerted steps to buHd up his long-neglected foreign trade ? For years the old gentleman has slumbered . Anon a few interested citizens have set off an alarm clock at his ear . When he has stretched himself sleepily , they have shouted , Our flag is practically off the sea . We have no ships . Someday well need new markets for agricultural and industrial products—and we wont be able to get them , because we have no ships of our own . Do something . Uncle Sam has yawned assent—and gone to sleep again . But the war has brought the foreign trade question home to him . He is beginning to see that ships are the big counters in the game of international trade . So there was more interest than ever before in the Third National Foreign Trade Convention held in New Orleans last month . The purpose of this meeting was first , to build up our foreign trade and second , to develop a merchant marine . You cant have one without the ...

A Bouquet We Are Proud to Get [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

A Bouquet We Are Proud to Get W HILE this magazine makes no pretense of being a farm journal , as the term is understood , that the banker shall be encouraged to seek information which will assist him in his work , articles on important phases of agriculture are often published . The other day we received a letter from Prof . Perry G . Holden , director of the agricultural work of the International Harvester company . It was apropos of nothing for we hadnt even been corresponding with him Apparently he had sat right down and written it out of the fullness of his heart . We cannot help printing it : I have just been re-reading a number of articles in the May number of THE BANKER-FAHMER , notably the one on the first page about the care of machinery , on the second page entitled , Two-thirds of the Country s Cows Earn a Profit of Thirty Cents a Year , on the fifth page , an article entitled , Is Education as Important as Bigger Crops , etc . and on page six , Dont Sacrifice Livestock ...

Public Spirit and the Road Drag Will Wofk Wonders [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Public Spirit and the Road Drag Will Wofk Wonders THE first bill for freight on farm crops is presented by the wagon road—it must be paid in advance . The next is presented by the railroad—this can be paid after the freight is delivered . In the early days when the railroads were poorly constructed , it frequently cost 10 cents to carry a ton one mile . Now it costs but three-fourths of a cent . Average wagon loads today charge 25 cents to carry a ton a mile . Good roads do it for half of this amount , or even less . An important question for us all to ask is , Who pays the freight ? Does Jones ? He does if Jones happens to be the man who lives on the poor road . Does Johnson , who lives on a good road in an up-to-date community and hauls loads twice the size of Jones get any less for his crops ? Or does Johnson lose any money when , because he has good roads to haul over , he markets . his crops at times of bad roads and high prices , while Jones can hardly get to town over his bad...

A Settled Country Without Good Roads Isn ' t Worth Living In ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

A Settled Country Without Good Roads Isn t Worth Living In ! Educate Farmers of the Future for Good Roads ONE of the greatest needs of our country is good public roads . The reason we do not have them wherever needed is not primarily because of the cost of building them , for in the last quarter of a century we have spent more money for other things not half so valuable or half so much needed than would be required to pay for the building of good roads to and through every place having any considerable population . Our annual mud tax is greater than would be the tax necessary to pay the interest on bonds to build good roads . The roads are not built , because the people do not understand their value nor comprehend how much beauty they would contribute to the country and how much pleasure to life . It is largely a matter of sentiment and ideals . These are most easily created in childhood . What one would have in the state tomorrow must be put into the schools of today . Not only sho...

Do Big Crops Pay Better Than [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Do Big Crops Pay Better Than DO larger crops mean larger incomes for the fa / rrher ? Or is he likely when he has exerted all his efforts for a bumper yield , to receive less cash returns than he has at another time when his production has been smaller ? There is some preaching today which would answer no to the first question and yes to the second . Doctrine which would discourage the farmer in his efforts to increase his yields is dangerous , if it isnt true . How about it ? Mr . Oathout , county agent of Champaign county , Illinois , has compiled tables which embrace the period from 1866 to 1911—os well as two ten year periods from 1891 to 1910 . That s the only equitable way—it isnt fair to pick out isolated years . What do these tables show ? That the farmer invariably receives more per acre for his biggest years than for the years of lesser production . We can print only two of these tables in full and give the totals ^ of the others—but we have them all complete and will subm...

This Banker Took a Gun and Dog—and Got Acquainted [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

This Banker Took a Gun and Dog—and Got Acquainted OUR farming community was getting in a bad way . A number of mills had sprung up in our portion of the state . The young people went into the mills , and the older people , too old for hard work , followed them to town , leaving those with large families whose children were too small to work in the mills and too numerous to be supported in town , and the Editor BANKER-FAEMER . — I have found an eastern banker who is progressive on the lines of the banker-farmer movement .

Join the Army of Banker-Farmers—These Bankers Point the Way [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Join the Army of Banker-Farmers—These Bankers Point the Way WHEN the young generation in the South grows up , it will know something about pigs and there will be more mortgage-lifters on southern farms . Southern bankers continue to encourage boys—and girls , too in taking pigs to raise . . Uncle Sam believes this is mighty good work and his agents in the South eagerly seek the aid of the bankers . George A . Holderness , president of the Farmers Banking and Trust company of Tarboro , North Carolina , is the latest southern banker to engage in this excellent banker-farmer activity . He will furnish twentyfive pigs and accept the personal notes of the boys as security . The experience of the Bank of Quitman , Georgia , backed up by that of numerous other institutions , proves that this paper is good . The Georgia bank took the unsecured notes of boys who wanted to buy pigs and did not have the money . We considered that what little risk was involved was more than offset by the plan o...

State Associations Strip for Action—Leaders Tell Plans [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

State Associations Strip for Action—Leaders Tell Plans New York to Urge Cooperation IN general terms , my feeling about the work of a bankers committee on agriculture is the promotion of cooperation between the banker and the farmer . The American farmer is a business man and , like every other business man in the country , one of his most important connections should be with his banker . In some cases the bankers have made the mistake of attempting to tell the farmer what he should do and hpw he should carry on his business . This has naturally been received in very much the same spirit that the banker would receive from the farmer a lesson in banking . New York state furnishes the greatest market in this country for farm produce and has a very varied and valuable farm production . It also is well equipped with banks who are in close touch with the farming business . Whatever work is done by our committee this year will be along the line of bringing these two great elemental busine...

Have Your Farmer Friends Read This Magazine in 1916 [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 February 1916

Have Your Farmer Friends Read This Magazine in 1916 MORE bankers than ever are enlisting in the bankerfarmer movement . It is conceded on all sides that the banker is in the best position to cooperate with the farmer . Their interests are common . Misunderstandings in the past have served to erect a barrier between the banker and the farmer . The farmer has often understood the banker to be a tight-fisted custodian of cash who was to be approached only in times of stress and then in fear and trembling . The banker has often sized up the farmer as an obtuse person who was stubborn in all his beliefs and likely to resent even the slightest advance . The banker-farmer movement has torn down this old-time barrier to a great extent but there is much of it yet to be razed . Bankers all over the United States have found that a distribution of THE BANKER -FARMER paves the way for a new understanding between banker and farmer . While this periodical does not pretend to be a technical farm jo...
