, The New Banker [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

, The New Banker FROM a wide acquaintance and experience with individual bankers—from the privilege of addressing many of their conventions in widely scattered states ^ -from several years cooperation with these associations , their officers and committees in connection with the work for a better agriculture and rural life and for better educational facilities—we are convinced that the bankers are at least as broad-minded , patriotic and publicspirited as any other class of men . They are even more so , in some respects . The very nature of the banker s occupation—his relations with all classes of people , with every variety of business , gives him an insight into and a wide outlook upon all phases of life and industry , such as is had by few men . This of itself broadens his vision as . well as his sympathies , by as . much as his opportunity to know human nature , men and things at their true value will permit . In other words , the banker with ample opportunity to see men and thi...

A Clear-Headed Southern Educator on Keeping Money at Home [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

A Clear-Headed Southern Educator on Keeping Money at Home Under this title , a story which means very much more than the head implies , appears in a recent Harper s Weekly from the pen of Edward K . Graham , acting president of the University of North Carolina . While Prof . Graham writes his story with his own home town of Charlotte as Its background , yet there is much of It we should all appropriate . He la Justly proud of every material prosperity that we have won , but there is a deeper reason for our eager elvte Interest than for material success . He has caught the spirit of a recent story that spoke of a certain man ae a fine type of new southerner , not the vaguely Idealistic type , fine aut ineffective , not the type exactly that Is building our peculiarly successful commercial cities , such as Atlanta and Birmingham , but the kind of man who Is hammering his Ideals Into his business and his citizenship and who Is invigorating his Ideals with practical performance . Some e...

The Lever Bill [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

The Lever Bill ** r \ F transcendent Importance to the country , commented v- / the Philadelphia North American when the SmithLever bill passed the Senate , a few days since . The friends of better and efficient farming have long realized this and fought for a farm demonstration pill . The agitation for such legislation started in 1910 , almost four years ago , with the Illinois Bankers Association , and the farm press has called that organization the father of farm demonstration . Observing the splendid results of the county agents work in the South , under Government appropriation to fight the boll weevil , Illinois bankers reasoned : Why shouldnt such work , on a broadened scale , be undertaken all over the country ?—then prepared a bill for that purpose . The pamphlet explaining this bill and the movement was entitled , What the Illinois Bankers Association is trying to do for Illinois and the Union . In the summer of 1911 the Agricultural Conference of the Agricultural Committe...

j ^ gr ^ Mggy [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

j ^ gr ^ Mggy A Game Law oh Veal THIS Is the subject of a timely comment by The Finan cier , New York , which recites in part : There is a shortage of 18 , 259 , 000 meat animals in the United States , according to estimate of the Department of Agriculture . This is a problem that B . F . Harris BANKERFARMER , supported by various bankers associations through out the United States , ought to tackle . If Mr . Harris can persuade every case of his banking readers to labor in turn with every one of his farmer customers to raise one more beef critter per year , the shortage ought quickly to disappear . ...... . We will not attempt to manufacture a sermon for THE BANKER-FARMER , but suggest that the Quickest way to counteract beef shortage is to enact wha ^ , for lack of a better term , might be termed a game law on veal . The propensity of the American farmer to sell immature stock rather than take the trouble and risk of raising it is well known THE BANKER-FARMER in addition to the exc...

A Dream [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

A Dream Leigh Mitchell Hodges ( FromTKt Great Encouragement ) I DREAMED the other night of a city . In that city the first thought was for the health of the people . All water given them to drink was clear and pure . The streets were swept at night so disease-laden dust Would not fly in the faces of the people . The back streets were swept and sprinkled like the main ones , and all the alley-ways were clean . It was . a beautiful city , not only because of trees and drives and well-kept houses , but because within its bounds one had a feeling It was healthful—that it was making for ruddycheeked children who would grow to be full-bodied and strongmen and women , And for happiness , because happiness follows health . In my dream I saw a creature walking through the streets of that city , crying out in a loud voice , I am a lost soul ! I am a lost soul ! A strong man on his way to work stopped ! to ask the creature what he meant I am a lost soul , he walled , I have done a wrong and I ...

A Real County Program [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

A Real County Program •PHIS publication receives many queries from bankers who 1 want to get actively Into the work of helping along their local agriculture and rural life conditions and yet have not matured a program . They want suggestions as to what to do and how to do It . , One of the broadest sanest and most , constructive programs that we have seen is that embodied In the work of the Bennington County ( Vermont ) Improve- , ment association . All such plans , of course , will not work out or reach real results except through the farmers themselves , who must first be aroused , hut in almost all cases the people in the towns and cities must initiate the work . So we commend this platform to-all bankers : The association was organized in 1912 , by over 100 prominent ( business men of the county , Including men engaged in manufacturing , trading , and farming . It concerns Itself with whatever is for the betterment of the county . It was formed to stimulate activities for econom...

The Editor in the Country Town [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

The Editor in the Country Town BUT in the country there is a force that we- hear littleabout but this force is doing a great work for the country . Every politician who wants an office realizes it . Every merchant who is alive knows it Every school teacher and preacher who wants to improve school or civic life has to have its help . No celebration is attempted without its assistance . No funerals or weddings or fires escape it No sales of any kind—sheriff s sales , bargain sales , firesales , or any other kind , take place without its knowledge . Even the great political parties recognize and patronize it . The railways until recently—very recently—thought so much of it that they carried it free . And this force , so potent in our great republic , is the Country Editor and his paper . Ho is exercising a greater power than he may realize , and h « Is very poorly paid , as a rule , for the valuable service he > renders ; yet he is a power for great good , and no movement ca...

The Farmer and His Income [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

The Farmer and His Income ( . Continued from Page Three ) Considering that the farm boys of today will be the farmers of tomorrow , altogether too little attention is given to their training . With $ 8000 invested the farmers who had a common school education showed an average labor income of $ 1 , 086 , while those who had had a high school education , showed an average income of $ 2 , 087 . Conclusions We consider bulletin No . 41 , the moBtimportas . t agricultural document in recent years , for it tells the story—the situation . Farm land values here referred to show an advance of 93 to 128 per cent over the 1900 census—due principally to advancing price of products , not production . The land price or the man is out of line . Farm methods , and profits have not caught up with land prices as they must , or the water will have to be squeezed out These farmers are now at the point where a little better science , seed , art and business will bring good profits . While the average y...

How Solve the Hunger for Land ? [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 March 1914

How Solve the Hunger for Land ? ONLY halt our arable land Is improved and that halt is only half-way farmed . The total arable land in the United States is 986 million acres , of which 100 million Is still unimproved and not included in farms , only 400 million acres being Improved . A 100 million acres is not yet In farms and a half billion acres is unimproved farm land ! All , or much of this is therefore cheap land , and literally thousands of men who want land , would be better off—and the centers of population and the nation better off—if they were on these farms . It would seem that there might be some way devised to solve this problem—so many men wanting farms , so many farms wanting men . The Country Gentleman sees another feature of these figures , for it says : According to the census of 1910 only twenty-seven per cent of the tillable land is actually under cultivation . Therefore we have approximately 800 million acres to be developed . Taking the census figures as a basi...

A Fallacy Exploded—Short Crops Do Not Make Higher Prices [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1914

A Fallacy Exploded—Short Crops Do Not Make Higher Prices For several year *—especially since larger farm production has bean widely urfled—wo have been deluged with statistics alleged to prove that . the farmer actually gets more money for a abort crop than he doe » for a bumper yield . Ergo : Why ahould he work for a larger production ? Thie le a rank fallacy—economically and from every other view point . Small cropa at high price * result In a sacrifice of half-fat stock } big crops at low prices encourage live stock feeding . What we want Is good and steadily Increasing acre production . Our yields per acre are now so low that they little more than meet the cost of production on high priced land . Increased production and better marketing is our salvation . Live stock feeding is part of the bettor marketing method . All other talk aside , the farmer s profit—and ail his prottt—lies in large ACRE yields—in the excess above the average . L . R .

National Highways for the Farmer vs . ' Radiating Roads . ' [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1914

National Highways for the Farmer vs . Radiating Roads . ILL BE BACK -TONIGHT ILL BE BACK IN AN HOUR By Charles H . Davis ( Preaideni National . Signxeayt Auotiation , Wathmgton , D . C . ) A T the outset of any talk on fhe Good Roads problem of this country as it affects the farmer there are two things that we . can safely assume . One is the social and economic importance of good roads . The other is the necessity of the governments taking a- hand in road building . In the last three years no leas than 140 bills proposing national legislation have been introduced ln the House and Senate . The substance of all these bills simmers down to two general plans . One Js tor a system of National Highways . The term Federal aid is applied more or less locally to all methods though it cannot . properly be used when we are discussing out-and-out National Highways . The other plan is that of Federal aid for the development of what may be called radiating roads , by which is meant roads radiati...

A Monument to Soil Fertility [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 April 1914

A Monument to Soil Fertility By Elmer 0 . Fippin { Cornell VnKenity ) . THB fact that fertility ot the Boll is dependent on the proper adjustment ot several conditions needs to be continually emphasized .. Attention to a single factor , or perhaps two , is very likely to result in a state ot bad adjustment which decreases productiveness . The scientific investigator needs frequently to be reminded of this fact but especially in dealing with farmers Is it important to keep before them the several things essential to a fertile soil and particularly those practices which tend to keep the soil in good condition . Not only must all these practices be presented but their relation to each other and their relative range of Influence must be noted . In order to fix attention on these factors , practices and relations , we have drawn up the monument to Soil Fertility which is designed to take account of the soil and the requirements of the crops most commonly grown as well as the more conveni...
