* £ e t _ J > J tje How Farmers Can Teach Agri -cultural Scientists [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
* £ e t _ J &gt; J tje How Farmers Can Teach Agricultural Scientists IT IS not enough that the county agent be simply a common carrier of ideas from farmer to farmer . He is to be a go-between to gather facts and experiences everywhere and to interpret these facts and experiences in the light of local conditions and needs . Then he is to go a step farther and carry the experience and the ideas of the farmers themselves to the Department of Agriculture and the agricultural , colleges ; for these institutions are as much in need of the farmer s wisdom and an accurate knowledge of the farmers problems as the farmer is in need of the information which agricultural institutions can give . Active and mutually helpful co-operation is needed between the farmers themselves and all of the public agencies intended to promote agriculture and agricultural education . The farmer needs the facts and the explanations which the scientists can furnish . The scientists and teachers are no less...

The New Era Peasantry is swept away , Better farming s come to stay In our happy land ; Drudgery has taken flight , Farm work s pleasant now , and lightHail , Our Country Grand ! Nations far , and nations near , Gaze with wonder over here At our wealth and power ; Yet our leadership is due Not to something strange or new , But to Nature s dower .

_ C J * J * Finding the Treasure [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
_ C J * J * Finding the Treasure T HIS STORY is told : A dying vinedresser whispered to his sons of a certain treasure hidden in the vineyard , which they would discover after his death . The sons made a thorough search , but with all their digging failed to find the pot of gold . They were sorely disappointed . Notwithstanding , the treasure was there—it dawned upon them when they found the yield of the vineyard doubling itself . What a wise dresser of vines was this ! He realized the worth of tillage and cultivation . Plant roots are liable to nourish themselves with a deal greater efficiency when soil stirring is deep . Well ploughed , half manured , were the ¦ words of the old adage , and it was no idle dreamer who penned them , as every better farmer will testify . The vinedresser knew that digging the soil in his vineyard would really bring a golden treasure from the grape . The better farmer likewise knows that deep plowing is the first essential of a good seedbed , as a good...
** J « J * Do You Keep a Bee [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
** J « J * Do You Keep a Bee ESTIMATES , based on reliable data , show that bees in the United States produce $ 25 , 000 , 000 worth of honey and beeswax annually , enough , if loaded on 40-foot freight cars holding 30 , 000 pounds each , to make a solid train 50 miles long . The little bee furnishes the people of this country with an enormous amount of valuable food , and producing honey and beeswax is not the only function of the bee . The greatest economic value of the bee comes from [ lie part that it plays in the fertilization of fruit trees and certain farm crops . Many orchardists believe tnat the best crop of apples would be impossible without the aid of the bee in helping to distribute the pollen . Pollen is that yellow dust we see given off from the corn tossel when it is ripe . From every blossom that blooms pollen must come and be interchanged with other blossoms , else there can be no seed , and hence no fruit or grain . Pollen brings to the plant what mating does to th...
Let the Hog Do the Work [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
Let the Hog Do the Work J . A . DRAKE , of the office of Farm Management of the United States Department of Agriculture , has been at work on a very important problem—that of finding the efficient farm system for the corn belt . He has outlined a well tried system , • which we might do well to know about . It not only distributes the labor throughout the year , but it eliminates the greater part of the rush work during the crop-gathering periods by harvesting most of the crops with livestock . It is possible on most farms to grow more crops than the regular working force can harvest . By Mr . Drake s plan the hogs do the harvesting . This relieves the rush of labor when outside help is most needed and makes it possible to increase the acreage , thus increasing the business and the net return . Here is the plan : Three crops are grown , corn , rye , and a mixture of clover and timothy . These are generally run in a four-year rotation as follows : First year , corn ( hogged down ); se...
j * _ * J * Labor [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
j * _ * J * Labor LABOR IS BEAUTIFUL—oh , -how beautiful ! It is the divine right of man—to labor . On the farm still is the good brawn , the beginning of fruitful work . For all the ages the man who digs and seeds and reaps has been upward striving . From fearsome serfhood he has attained farmer selfhood . The man with the hoe is no longer stooped , broken , hopeless , but he carries blithely a sharp tool with a slender handle ; he walks straight and confidently ; he has even been heard to sing as he hoed . The farm laborer has come from afar , he has achieved living . The goal is not yet Who can tell of the progress to be made when the worker of the fields really starts to farm his world and to cultivate his spirit . Listen to this by Berton Braley : Out of chaos , out of murk I arose and did my work . While the ages changed and sped I was toiling for my bread . Underneath my sturdy blows Forests fell and cities rose , And the hard , reluctant soil Blossomed richly from my toil . ...
. 1 dl Jl The Value of Plan [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
. 1 dl Jl The Value of Plan THE FARMER OF TODAY , through a lack of actual knowledge of his own affairs , is perhaps the most abused and in many cases least appreciated of all men , recently declared Charles K . Graham , director of agriculture in the Hampton Institute . From his experience with farmers and in farming , Mr . Graham is convinced that the average countryman does not sufficiently value his own time , oftentimes considering an hour or even a day worth but little or nothing . Placing this low value upon his efforts , buyers take him at his own valuation and generally pay him accordingly for his products . Every farmer should have some definite aim . A money crop is usually the profit . The great secret of good management is in planning ahead , not only the crops for a number of years , but the work of the farm for several months . The results from such planning are so immediate that the amount of labor required steadily decreases and the profits correspondingly increase ...
Plenty of Land [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
Plenty of Land HOW MANY PEOPLE Will the farming area of the United States support ? We have now a population of approximately 100 , 000 , 000 , and most of what we raise goes to fill these hundred million stomachs . Twenty years ago a large proportion of our grain was shipped abroad , now we are eating most of it at home . What will we do when the population doubles , as it will in fifty years if the growth continues with the same celerity as in the last half century ? Have we . land enough to sustain a population of 200 , 000 , 000 ? For the comfort of hungry descendants , as well as to allay the apprehensions of the present generation , we are glad to speak a word of assurance . The government has recently employed its experts to gather reliable data from 35 , 000 correspondents concerning the amount of tillable land in the United States . We learn from that report that excluding foreign possessions we have within the bounds of the two oceans about 1 , 900 , 000 , 000 acres . Of t...
Jl , JI J * Making Home Look Like Home [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914
Jl , JI J * Making Home Look Like Home THERE is no investment of an equal amount which will increase the Value of the average farm home as that expended , in the improvement of the grounds surrounding the house , said James G . Moore at the Wisconsin Rural Life Meetings . It is is unattractive or repulsive in its exterior aspects . In improving the home grounds the backyard is usually the place to begin . A large percentage of the backyards of our farm homes are not only uninviting , but actually repulsive and frequently unsanitary . If nothing more can be done the litter may be removed and a good lawn substituted . In improving the home grounds several things should be kept in mind . The house is the chief feature of the landscape and the treatment should be such as to enhance its value both artistically andas a dwelling . The most important features of planting to accomplish this end is to provide a background for the house and to make it appear as a natural part of the landscape ...

A&lt;&amp; * rau &gt; BYGLENN G. HAYES __ . —_ — J Spring—magic name for magic season . The plants rush forth from out of their mother the earth ; the young are born ; the birds sing ; the children shout ; the mothers smile ; the fathers toil All the world-things are resurrected amid the perfume of the greening season . Again Farmland is all abustle and atremble u * joyous anticipation to the irresistible growth-urge which leads to the fruiting . It is spring time indeed —seeds spring into life , hearts spring into love . Scringing season is younging season . Nature is brooding . Hail spring of 1914 ! And we wonder : what will the harvest be ? Possibly , just about what we make it . And from the symphony of spring on one good farm perhaps I may catch a note or so . enough , I hope , to make at least one resounding chord to stir a soul to better farming . Listen to a call of the field : Just the other day Amos Stackweather went out over his snow-covered acres ...
