Paint On The Farm By Professor J . A . Farra Kentucky College of Agriculture The object of painting is to protect from atmos p heric and o t her inju ry , bu t ma y be decorative as well as protective if colors are chosen with care and good taste . Kor farm buildings white is a clean and whole s ome color , bu t is unsui t ed f or use upon stock farms , if l e ad p ain t is used , because of t he discolor in g e ffec t of fumes from the decaying organic matter .

Practical Hints on Spring Cleaning Every year the same old arguments are advanced about spring cleaning . There are those who maintain that it is unnecessary ( this usually from the masculine side of the house ) and those who argue against it as if it were designed to make people generally miserable . Let them wrangle it out between themselves , but when all is said and done the fact remains that a certain amount of cleaning is inevitable if our household things are to face the bright light of spring and summer with any satisfaction to ourselves . .

IWHEN THB ^ UPPERTABLE IS CUEARED [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

IWHEN THB ^ UPPERTABLE IS CUEARED Encourage the Young Folks Young people should share in the business of the farm , though it be but in a small way . With one it may be with hen and chicks , another a small patch of potatoes or popcorn , an acre of corn or wheat , a tree of apples , or cherries , a pig , calf , colt of sheep . They should earn and learn and be materially rewarded , so that a small bank account can be started in its own name . The fire insurance policy and the deed for the farm should be hauled out of their hiding places and be read by the young folks . A certificate of stock or a bond coupon , a promissory note , a receipt for the payment of an account should occasionally be brought forth that their acquaintance may be made . Young people should be consulted as to the weight of animals , the time for marketing and as to their value to the end and that their judgment may be trained and that a real serious interest in business may be aroused .
