Heroes [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

Heroes IT IS TOO BAD that the Carnegie Fund for the reward of heroes cannot be bestowed upon those who display rare traits of courage in other ways than by saving human life . We would like to see a hero s « nedal pinned on the breast of some of these sacrificing mothers who are stitching and scrubbing and denying themselves every human comfort in order to keep their little flock of children together and start them in the world with a good education . We would like to see a medal in the hair of thai little 13-year-old girl who rode her stout little pony through snow drifts 10 feet deep out in Colorado last month and brought home a bunch of 120 cattle of her father s which would have otherwise perished in the storm . We would like to see a suitable reward given the young Scotch immigrant named John Saunders , who , though hungry and desperately in need of money , found a package of bills thc other day on one of Chicago s streets and resisted the temptation to slip them in his pocket ...

Your Mother [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

Your Mother The richest fibre of her life into your own she wove ; Your golden memories are set with jewels of her love . Life s alabaster box she breaks and pours it on your heads , The perfume of her sacrifice through all your being spreads . A GOOD MAN is killed when a boy goes wrong . * * * The more people know the less they brag about it . * * * There are too many people in the church who never get religion in their hands and feet . * * * One of the saddest sights upon which angels have to look is the life of a lonely child . * * * There are parents who work for their children too much and talk with them too little .

— * % M * cM «__• Farming in England [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

— * % M * cM «__• Farming in England THE EDITOR of BETTER FARMING spent two weeks of February and March in England . A few things he saw of farming conditions there may be of interest . In some things the English farmer can teach us , in other things he has much to learn . An American who has traveled a half hour in the rural part of England will observe that they know there the wisdom of fall plowing . In mid-winter we find no stubble fields baked and beaten with wind , rain and sun . The plow has done its good work in the fall and the rough ridges of the earth drink in the winter rains and are ready for early seeding as soon as frost is gone . There are no hedges of weeds near the fences , the English farmer plows to the very edge of the field ; every inch of his valuable land is utilized . He also believes in keeping enough sheep to clean up his fields , and one sees no evidence of the weed problem in England . The farm premises surpass ours in regard to tidiness . There are no i...

What Is a Gentleman [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

What Is a Gentleman THE SUPERFICIAL ANSWER is that he must wear good clothes , have a fund of polite conversation , know how to make an exit from a drawing room without stepping on himself and dance gracefully without entangling his feet , in his partner s train . A better answer I saw floating around in the exchanges recently . A gentleman , said the editor , is a man of kind heart , a quiet voice and open to help ; attentive to little things for the comfort of others ; free from anger , boasting and patronizing ; showing toward the strong courage , toward the weak chivalry , toward all men fairness . ** The best answer of all I saw inscribed on the tomb of Chinese Gordon , whose body lies in St . Paul s Cathedral , London . Gordon was the hero of Khartoum . He was perhaps the finest Englishman of his day and age , and this is what his countrymen inscribed on his coffin : He gave his strength to the weak , his sympathy to the suffering , his substance to the poor and his heart to G...

As to Samuel Allerton [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

As to Samuel Allerton tickled that he sent the boy to Europe to study country houses . When Bob came back his father had purchased the 19 , 000-acre farm , The Farms , for him at Monticello , 111 . Besides this Mr . Allerton owned over 40 , 000 acres of good farm land under plow in Iowa , Illinois , Wisconsin , and other states . He made it pay , too , all of it , the principle being to feed the crops to livestock . It is related that when P . D . Armour . gave his two sons $ 6 , 000 , 000 to keep them out of the poorhouse Mr . Allerton chided him for not giving them something—he had presented his son and daughter with $ 8 , 000 , 000 each . But Sam Allerton never forgot to put first things first . He looked at all farm business in the light of simple basic applications . Honest , successful and square , his advice as to how to become a farmer is worth heeding : Hire out to some fanner by the year for J 250 , and board . Save $ 200 of it and deposit it in a good bank until you can i...

. . . Work Not Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

. . . Work Not Wanted THE CHURCHES of New York , or some of them at least , have been well attended this winter . The army of unwashed and unemployed has invaded some of these sanctuaries and sought bed and shelter . The emotional social reformers have taken up their cause and invited them to afternoon receptions . The idle occupants of the clubs on Fifth avenue have looked out of the windows with startled eyes to see that thoroughfare crowded with untidy rioters belonging to the so-called I . W . W ., which means the Industrial Workers of the World . They do not really work , but they do work the shallow sentimentalists and the nerveless police officers , , and the country sheriffs who are afraid to give them- a bath and put them to work on the stone pile breaking rock for good roads . Governor Glynn of New York , touched by th . ir loud demands of employment , undertook to transport them into the country . They refused farm labor , as they were not used to getting up before eight ...
