j Young Farm Folks [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914
j Young Farm Folks Every one who loves you , Loves to see you smile ; Loves to see you cheerful—And happy all the while . Smiling comes so easy ! Do not wear a frown ; If you feci one rising , Always smile it down . . *~ 4 Country Boys Creed In every schoolhouse in Prince Edward County , Virginia , a placard containing a creed for the American country boy and dedicated to the Boys Corn Club of Virginia has been posted . It reads : COUNTRY BOYS CREED . I believe that the country which God made is more beautiful than the city which man made ; that life out of doors and in touch with the earth is the natural life of man . I believe that work with nature is more inspiring than work with the most intricate machinery . I believe that the dignity of labor depends not on what you do , but how you do it ; that opportunity comes to a boy on the farm as often as to a boy in the city ; that life is larger and freer and happier on the farm than in the town ; that my success depends not upon my l...

All For Women Too many men never praise their wives until after they bury them . * * » The easiest way for a man to pack a trunk is to get his wife to do it . * f * There are men who go to a gymnasium for exercise while their wives are sawing the wood . » * * There is many a wife hungering for an occassional word of approval who will be buried in a rosewood casket . * * * If men were as ungallant during courtship as they are after marriage , it is doubtful if more than one in ten thousand could ever get a wife . * * * Why is it that it tires some men more to do a little errand for a weary wife than it does to walk around a billiard table for four hours ? * * a Generally when a man feels the need of economy he thinks it ought to begin with his wife- . - J * a * a *
Some Scrapper [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
Some Scrapper THE PALE PROFESSOR has come through . He has confirmed the confidence of his friends and confounded his critics . The latter thought a mortar-board hat would not look well in the White House and they had a lot of fun in drawing caricatures of a slab-sided bookish unmilitary sort of recluse as Commander in Chief of our Army and Navy . They had forgotten or unheeded how similar jeers and sneers had called the great Lincoln uncouth and ungainly and untaught in war and statecraft . But Lincoln s gloved hand was mailed . Though at times it knotted hard in agonizing prayer for peace it could seize the sword and urge on armies that he could not lead in person . So our patient waiting President can strike , too , if he pleases and by his patient waiting he has accumulated for the blow the moral and physical force of 100 , 000 . 000 people who are with him as a unit . Force will not have to be used , we still hope , in a mere fly swatting campaign in Mexico . The game so far de...
Kick 'Em in the Shins [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
Kick Em in the Shins IF Mr . Wilson , with much regret and reluctance , has to really go down with his spanker and teach Senor Huerta a lesson in good manners , there will be , of course , a few folk who will cry out against war and proceed to throw sand into the gears of the spanking machine and invoke the moral law and start to set out an injunction . All of which reminds us . There was a good little boy who had learned well his Christian mother s injunction to turn the , left cheek if perchance some naughty wicked boy should smite him on the right . The Bible so teaches . .... , u Young Willie had observed this higher law . 11 through the various grades of school , even to the fifth and sixth , in spite of much provoca w and in spite of some admixture in his blood 01 a doughty dad s hot Celtic humor One day 1 c was taunted beyond endurance and after a luuy rough-and-tumble of one round with the cw *&gt; bully he came home with scratched cheeks am a bunch of the bully s fo...

Foul Cellars [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
Foul Cellars FARM PEOPLE are not the healthiest in the world if we accept the report of the New York state Commission of Health , who after careful canvass of the situation in that State find that the country population , including those living ui small towns of less than 2 , 500 , show an annual death rate of 15 . 3 per thousand as against 13 . T ? the congested tenements of New York city , inere ; s sornething seriously wrong with the habits and conditions of rural people when the death rate in the open country exceeds that of the penned up city . Our own observation confirms the suspicion that the worst foe to health J country life is the bad air in the dwellings . Much of their bad air comes from cellars of improper drainage . Heavy rains at certain times pf the year cause the ground water to rise high in the soil and as a result many poorly constructed cellars are flooded and made unhealthful for the rest of the year . It is too often the case that the cellar walls and floor ar...
Cheap Health [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
Cheap Health ANOTHER CHEAP way of prolonging life by the fresh air method is through the sleeping porch . That has become popular in every city , but alas , too rare as yet in country houses . Primitive man slept in the open and was healthy . Civilization brought a pair of itching blankets and furnace heat and fear of fresh air . At no time does one need such a quantity of pure oxygen as when asleep and it does not matter how cold it is as long as the body is snugly protected and a sleeping porch is the only original and genuine and costless ounce of prevention , and the joke of it is , ( or better perhaps say the tragedy ) that some people have to travel clear out to New Mexico to discover this fact . They learn there that the only treatment offered for consumption is a tiny sleeping tent and may be they wonder why they hadn t thought of that back home and the folks back home are most likely coughing fearfully and padding the cracks in the window with that old red quilt . Let us al...
Here Is a Puzzle [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
Here Is a Puzzle THIS is the last month for road grading . It should have been done in March and April as the frost was leaving the ground The dirt packs hard and bakes if moved then and we have hard roads all summer . We would like a sensible answer to the puzzle , why farmers do most of their road work in summer , when teams and men are at their lowest efficiency owing to the wilting heat and when the dry dust will not pack and when the roads are choked with traffic impatient of interruption and exasperated when it has to travel over miles of newly made turnpike . I suppose the answer is that between hay and harvest there isn t much eUc to do . Then for goodness sake do nothing . The farmer needs a rest and a week or two of outing as much as anybody . But work the roads in early spring or fate fall . It would pay every road district to own or hire a traction engine . It could not . on y plow the road side , but pull two graders and run a rock crusher if stone to surface the graded...
The Prince of Pigdom [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914
The Prince of Pigdom THIS is not quite the time of year as yet for fish and snake stories of wonderful calibre . What will the newspapers do for fillers ? Of course , the Mexican mixup will give correspondents and space writers a rare opportunity . But a week before that situation became acute , we found in our favorite daily an unblushing report from Snake Center that Caleb Strong had sold a hog for $ 55 . 00 and it weighed 810 pounds ! The fact that the telegraph editor accepted such a report by wire and paid his country correspondent $ 1 . 00 for the item proves that he thought it wasn t true . If he thought it was true and just an ordinary every-day occurrence in Pigdom , he would not have thrown the news up on the first page with a black faced title to arrest the eye and sell a few more papers . But the fact was true or might have been . Some of us have seen such hogs , though they are not common . It doesn t pay to keep and feed a hog till he is big as a horse with sawed-off p...
