Every dry farmer should name
his farm, and it is a wise and
business like farmer who has his
own name, his farm name and
its location. Up to date methods
bring the be3t results, and suc
cess comes to him who advertises.
A named farm is a credit to
the communty; visitors are told
all about it and the enterprise of
its owner, and they are usually
driven over to inspect it. It not
only advertises a community, but
it instills pride and push into its
owner, who invariably becomes
one of the shining examples of
prosperity among his rural neigh
bors. The custom of naming farms
is not a new one, but it is just
beginning to become popular.
The trend of eventr, the .brains,
energy and success of the mod
ern farmer who .is making by
dry farming methods a living
and a fortune"on land for a cen
tury regarded as impracticable of
cultivation, all combine to de
mand the distinct designation of
"Our farm has been named
since I was a small child, and we
find it very convenient in more
ways than one," says Miss
Melva Iona Gregory, of Sunny
side Farm, a writer for the
Southern Kuralist. For instance,
my mother has two relatives who
bear her name, a not unusual
occurrence in old families. Some
times it was very annoying to
each of them when their letters
were opened by the wrong one.
To avoid this confusion the
name of our farm included in her
address gives the carrier a clue.
If this is'done hejiever'makes
a mistake. Often in commun
ities there are Smiths and Jones
and numerous others with the
same name or initials, which
confuse'a stranger inquiring the
way. If it was Jones, of The
Maples, or Smith of Sunnyside,
how much easier to direct him to
the right place.
When the farmer has anything
to advertise, it furnishes a much
more attractive advertisement,
one which will catch the eye bet
ter. A few years ago we raised
blooded beadles. For our letter
heads we used a picture of 'the
tiny mother with her seven
babies, under it her name, Missie
of Sunnyside. You readily see
what a fetching name it gave us
for her. Undoubtedy it brought
us business. We also use it in
our poultry business with results.
Aside from business, and I
know from experience that it
helps there, there is something
deightfully fascinating about a
named farm. Who of us is there'
who does not like to be asked to
visit at Rose Hill, or The
Cedars? Doesn't it sound more
inviting than just to say, Come
to our place some day? It does
to me. 1 do not like the peculiar
meaningless names used by some.
It is best to study your place,
and as a rule it will be found
that there is some one name that
just fits it.
One farm I know, is cauea
Spring Hill. There is a spring
high up on a hill close to where
the house stands, from which it
takes the name. Another is
Meadowbrook, an old but none
ihe less beautiful name. Through
this farm a stream flows. An
other old name is, Forest Homo;
the house is near the woods.
Cedar Hill has numerous cedars
surrounding the house, which is
on a hill. Valley View as the
nauo tells, has a beautiful view
down the valley. 'On Breezy
Heights' there was always a
breeze. Other pretty names are
Willow Brook. Highland, Wild
wood, Bookaide, Riverside and
Study your farm and us loca
tion carefully before selecting a
nnme. Do not name it langie
wood if thera is no tangle of na
ture in her riotous beauty near
by, or Tho Elms, if there is one
lone elm in yoUr yard and none
on the farm.
The farm name should be with
your own on the mail box and
again in an arch over the barn lot
gate is an attractve way. In
passing through thc county
when we come-to a place of this
kind, naturally we feel that there
is ability and push about its
