The Victory tor Peace [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

The Victory tor Peace The signs are brightening in Mexico . Perhaps it would be more accurate to say they are brightening over Washington . The President deserves his reward of public approbation for his patient obstinacy in opposing the demands of rapacious and rambunctious jingoes . With the exception of Major William Randolph Hearst and Assistant Major John C . Shaffer , both of whom publish a string of more or less yellow newspapers , prettynearly the whole country is in sympathy with the efforts of the government to spare the nation the bloody and costly sacrifice which war in Mexico insures . By delay thus far we have achieved at least two results which are worth more than twenty victories . We have given Americans and foreigners an opportunity to get out , of Mexico with their lives and we have proved to South America that we are sincere in our protestations of disinterested friendship . We have largely regained their confidence which was rudely jarred by the methods which we...

A Man with a Grouch [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

A Man with a Grouch One man has disappointed us . He is the senator from Wisconsin . There are supposed to be two , but one of them who secured his place in the old-fashioned way , is so entirely a nonentity at the National Capital that his name is scarcely known outside of the state which he pretends to represent . LaFollette is the real senator , though he is no longer a real representative of what is perhaps the most progressively enlightened state in the Union . He is not known to us personally , but he has every evidence of being a man of clean character and has done many excellent public services . He was infamously treated when the leadership of the progressive movement was wrested from him and he had the sympathy of thousands of people who do not share his political views . He still had a promising career before him , but he himself , by his present attitude , is destroying his usefulness , destroying his influence and destroying his future . He is now in the position of a m...

Cm j ** cm Masterful Man [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

Cm j ** cm Masterful Man IN SPITE of the heavy handicap which the movement for woman suffrage must carry by reason of the insane acts of the militants , the Cause is gaining each day in the United States , at least . By the adding of women s votes at the last Illinois election , over a thousand grog shops were put out of business and the liquor interests had all their fears concerning the womens ballots justified . But when good men are convinced that by the aid of their wives and sisters they can secure better government in these United States , they will not be long in handing the ballot to them . There is something to be said also in behalf of the poor half-crazed women of England who are resorting to apparently senseless extremes in their crusade for suffrage there . The Editor of Better Farming spent several weeks in London this year and his heart was touched with pity for the frail sex who deserve at least the helping hand of every chivalrous man , but who certainly get , in t...

t 5 « t ^ JB JW No Class Legislation For Us [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

t 5 « t ^ JB JW No Class Legislation For Us Once more we will inform our representatives in Congress that the farmers of the United States do not ask for any special privileges in the law now proposed for the regulation of the country s business . A few weak-kneed representatives , who are trying to curry favor with certain labor leaders , propose an amendment specifically exempting labor organizations and farmers organizations from prosecution for conspiracy and restraint of trade and other misdemeanors which the rest of our business world are forbidden to practice . If certain labor unions wish to intimidate Congress by a display of political power and thus secure exemption from the drastic force of law , they may do so if they choose and congressmen may succumb to their threats if they choose , but please do not use the farmer as a red-herring , whose carcass is to be drawn across the trail and thus throw the scent of the hounds of justice off the track of real criminals .

The Social Center—What It Does For a Farm Community [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

The Social Center—What It Does For a Farm Community By W . J . Trimble , Professor of History -- & Social Science , North Dakota Agricultural College THE real social center provides for relaxation and amusement . Beyond a doubt young people need some fun , and they will have it . It is better that this fun be had under community leadership than that it be sought in the pool halls and joints of the towns . The social center provides opportunity for healthful and well directed fun . There are rooms for games and for social gatherings , in some places for neighborhood dances . There are playgrounds and equipment for athletic sports , baseball , tennis , etc . Our average country boy or girl is sturdy and strong , but in many cases clumsy . Athletics bring alertness , poise , agility . - _ ..-. Older people also need some fun . That is the way to keep from being old . The social center should have a YOUNG atmosphere . There is a good deal of strain in raising and saving crop...

jl J * Jl Answer This [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

jl J * Jl Answer This THAT AWFUL NIGHTMARE which was known as Free Trade is all but flown . The politicians opposing the new tariff tried to throw fits and did throw a few into some farmers and farm papers by screaming about the deluge of free wheat that was going to pour down from Canada . We did let down the bars to our Lady of the Snows and gallantly offered to let her spill some of her golden grain through the tariff portals , but only on condition . The condition was that while we opened the bars for the lady she reciprocate and make us a sandwich by letting in an equivalent of our produce under the same preferential rates . But Miss Canada has other suitors to consider . She has three transcontinental railroads . Like impecunious dukes , suing for the fair hand of an heiress , they have borrowed Canada blind . She holds their bonds , but what good are bonds when they won t pay interest and how pay interest if the stream of Canadian wheat be let through the States by quickest r...

Farming Is Not All Fun [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

Farming Is Not All Fun THE HIGH COST of labor does not affect the railroads alone . Farmers have had to stand the gaff of constantly increasing wages and in tne last two years the increase has been Vfo , in tact farm labor wages are 65 % higher than they were twenty years ago . From 1870 to 1880 gold was accepted as the standard for farm wages which increased steadily for ten years . During the next decade the rate remained stationary , but declined from 1891 to 1894 . From that time until now there has been a steady increase . Ihe labor report for the year 1913 shows that the average wage rate for farm labor , when board was included , was $ 89 . 58 . In harvest time the rate is $ 1 . 87 per day . * It is not only wages whose increase have made the cost of production more to the farmers but many other factors as well . The price of implements is not much higher but the price of land , which engages three-fourths of the farmer s capital , has probably doubled m the last twenty years...

Jr * Ju Jm That Noble Hopper Fight [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

Jr * Ju Jm That Noble Hopper Fight KANSAS GAVE the world a good lesson in scientific co-operation last July . Forty-five hundred farmers in twelve counties carried out one HOME OF A BETTER FARMER of the most successful organized fights against an invasion of grasshoppers ever accomplished in that state , and possibly in any other state . Ninety per cent of the hoppers , in many places , were killed by the poison bran mash which was sowed broadcast over fields and pastures . In the twelve counties , 570 tons of poison were used , the various counties paying the cost Later , many farmers convinced of the value of the poisoned bran method , bought ingredients and mixed more poison to protect young wheat from grasshoppers that escaped the first application .

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1914

Computing Rations For Swine Prof . L , S . Corbett , Maine College of Ajricaltiire The hog is the most economical producer of flesh of all our farm animals . Furthermore , he can utilize a greater variety of cheap feeds than any other domestic animal . Small potatoes , fallen apples , pumpkins and squashes , together with by-products from the kitchen and dairy can be used to very great advantage in cheap , pork production . Four and a half pounds of potatoes are equivalent to a pound of grain . In addition to the cheap feeds just mentioned , wider use should be made of pasture . Under the pasture system , the hogs harvest the crops , dcvelope strong bone , make vigorous growth and cheaper gains than by any other system of feeding . By means of permanent hos-tight fences or temporary fences of panels , pastures should be divided into lots of from two to five or six acres in order to provide for a system or rotation by means of which one lot is used until eaten close and then allowed ...
