HArd to Get and of Poor Quality...
One of the most common complaint'
to-day coming from the farm is tht
incompetency of most of the farm la
borers that can be secured. It ti nol
to be doubted that this 'will rosill
finally in the establishing of soim
kind of school or bureau where it
will be possible for crude laborers te
be made into competent farm labor'
ers. There are thousands of.idle mer
in the cities in ordinary times that
would be glad to go out and work in
the country if they understood- the
work. Farm work also varies so great
ly in character that one kind of a farm
laborer is not well fitted to do other
kinds of farm labor.
Thus a city man that has worked
as stable man in a great horse-breed,
ing establishment would not be well
fitted by his experience to go to work
for a horticulturist. When he loses
his position with the horse-breeder, he
turns his face city-ward and goes to
work for some man in town. If he
had an opportunity to learn how to
do all kinds of farm work he could
readily change from one class of work
to another, but as a matter of fact it
is not easy for a man that wishes to
learn farming to get with a man that
will let him learn all kinds of farming,
Usually his work is so one-sided that
he makes little progress.
This is a matter that will doubtless
be taken up in time by the depart
ments in our agricultural colleges that
deal with farm economics, thinks
Farmers' Review. It would be entire
ly easy for some one of our agricul
tural colleges to start such a fitting
school as an experiment, with the
idea of turning out annually a few
all-around farm laborers, who would
have learned many kinds of work in
the various departments of the experi
ment station farm. Laborers so taught
would have the advantage of having
been taught more correct principles
of farming than is true with most la
borers, who pick up a good deal of
error with the facts they acquire.

.fnote of warning:
"Co-ilcidnt mitly with exposi

beyond the safe pnwm-iice of the

are being sent from New York
City designed to further the
work of an organization there
seeking, in its own words., 'to
encourage the distribution of
Italian immigrants all over the
country, especially in the agri
cultthal sections of the United
States.' The South and the
country will do well to discouir
age at every point any move
ment, whether by a New York
steiship company or by the
federal government, to distrib
ute through the country any
kind of immigrants, especially
immigrants who are speeded
from their native countries by
their own governments. There
is too much of the fine Italian
hand touching big American
politics visible in the immigra
