THE "CROWN OF WILD
-' . - . .' .1
Provision for Old Age.
ByJos. Hyrum Parry.
, g v , , I
Whilc still jiti the hcydaV oft youth
or the vigor of niidUjc life, every man
should plan and do some work that
will give him returns in his old age
and make his declining years indepen
dent and happy, says nn observant
Southern farmer' in Rural Ncw-York-er,and
never was a better thought pur
on paper. The writer continues:
Many of us, remember Ruskin's ac
count of the beautiful old Greek cus
tom of the "Grown of Wild Olives,"
a period of rest and peace, even in
this world, after the hard battles of
life arc over. And all of us, now
while we arc young, sliQtild prepare
for our crown of wild olives.
While in his youth the writer quoit- .
cd above looked nrotind him to find
something to do that would bring in
dependence and peace in his old age.
Mc was the son of an extensive Mis
sissippi cotton grower and of all oc
cupations that nrc most fdlcd with
worry, the calling of the cotton plant
er talfcs the lead. He chose for his
crown of wild olives a pecan grove,
which he planted about twenty-five
years ago, amid the ridicule of the
whole community. The Southern
people never planted for more than
a year ahead, and anyone who was
willing to wait ten years for his re
turns was considered nothing moic
than a fool. They prophesied every
imaginary disaster. The disasters all
came, but the pecan grove stood
them all, and the "fool" who planted
the grove was not such a big fool
after alj. For, twenty-five years af
ter, the very men who laughed the
loudest arc now planting groves for
themselves, while the first "fool."
planter is reaping -u golden harvest
from his ioo acres of pecans. Th'e
whole South is now planting pecans
and) there will be need for all.
The Titer would fain convince
every young man in Utah, within the
pale of his influence, that the best
provision for old age, the best crown
of wild olives in this section, is a well
planted commercial orchard of any
size, fr.om five acres up. There is
nothing that promises so certain and
steady an income to its owner and
no calling which will give greater
pleasure in its pursuit than the own
ership and care of a bearing orchard
or vineyard, or both combined.
There is at this writing a great
boom in life insurance; the woods
are full of insurance agents who arc
urging young mien to take out policies
for the benefit of their families and
a possible provision against old -age,
in the event that they themselves live
to mature their policies. Insurance
s pointed to as a dHity a man owes his
family, to provide them against want
in case of his death. All of which is
true" w gospel. But the question
arises as to what arc the best means
of making this provision for old age,
or, to come more to the point, what
is the best and safest insurance policy?
From careful observation the writ
er has com'c to the conclusion that
of all the many insurance policies of
fcrcdl tp select from no one offers so
many advantages as the growing of
a good orchard. The man who se
49$t,vjiy policy handles Jiis own
money all the time and doesn't have
to. wait twenty years or more before
he has nny returns, meantime aug
menting the wealth of rich ' foreign
insurance companies'. Tyhc safety of
the gilt-edged insurance companies
cannot compare with that of a good
commercial orchard, if it is as faith
fully "nursed' and protected as the
life insurance policy must be. Many
a man has impoverished his family
and made life miserable for himself
and his family through carrying the
burden of a heavy life insurance poli
cy, and to get from under the load the
policy too often is allowed to lapse
and -all his savings are forfeited.
Whereas if a man purchases a piece
of, land and plants it to fruit trees,
he can look after their growth him
self as ehcaply as he could pay his
annual insurance dues. He lives on
his land and1 it saves him rent. The
members of his family can all help
in caring for it and he wM get some
returns from it the second or hird
year. It increases in value very ya.,
the land also increases in value, iwd
by the time the orchard is six years
old it s -more than paying for itself,
and after twelve years planted the
orchard is capable of rQUrning $200
Will buy a good farm, all improved,

ing his family unprotected and un-
provided for? In this dire event
there is nothing better as a pcrma
nent provision for their present ne
cessities and future needs as a well ,
established orchard or vineyard. "f,
as would naturally be the case, the
l;oys and girls have been helping '
father to grow the orchard, they will
be able to carry on the work when
he is gone, and thus arc provided
with a useful and paying vocation for
which they have been well trained
from their youth.
On this showing the writer con
tends that one of the best and! safest
insurance policies fqr the family's

independent peaceful and happy old
