Of course you want your children to have a better
chance than you hadevery good father does. You
want your daughters to marry well and you want
your sons to have enough capital and sufficient edu-
cation to begin their farming careers almost at the
point you have reached after years of toil.
Many a farmer has found in pure-breds the solution
for the two outstanding problemshow to keep the
children contented with farm life, and how to start
them out so that they are bound to achieve success.
