A study of the efforts that have
tbeen made by Agricultural and
Mechanical Associations at the
r. South, would prove interesting to
one who has a stomach for that
kind -of business; and it might be
n- useful to those who are engaged in
similar efforts. The agricultural
and mechanical industries of the
country are the basis on which its
prosperity must be built, and the
government has made liberal ap
e propriations to aid in the encour
agement of these industries; yet,
as a rule, agricultural and me
Is chanical institutions have been re
In 1862, by what is known as
the "Agricultural College Act,"
~Congress made a grant of millions
~of acres of public landsto aid in
Spromoting agriculture and the me
Schanic arts in the States. There
are now in the country,.forty-two
a Agricultural and Mechanical Col
m leges erected, under this Act; but
i they are "Agricultural and Mechan
I ical" only in name. With perhaps
mfour or five exceptions, they have
Sbecome literary and scientific in
e stitutions. .The Chairman of the'
~faculty of our University stated in
'his last report, that out of the one
ihundred and fifty-three -boys at
Stending that institution, only fifty'
were studying agriculture. Our.
farmers are inclined to think that
.farming can best be learned on the
*farm; they have little confidence in.
. scientific teachers of.scientiflc farm
Sing, and we are not prepared to say
that they are wrong.
1Some years ago, the grange. was
-established. It was peculiarly a
Sfarmers organization. It not only
Sproposed to reform all agricultural
eabuses, but it entered the domain of
?politics and, assumed the manage-.
ment of affairs generally. For a
d 'time the farmers were abla.ze with
enthusiasm. They held grange
Smeetings, made grange speeches,
ate grange dinners, and undoubted
Sly did much good; but where now
n is the grange ?
s . Wherever we follow the subject
r, we find the same results. Practi
cally, agricultural fairs might as
i well be called agricultural failures.
Especially is this true of county
fairs. The State Agricultural and
IMechanical Society is under the
management. of energetic business
men; it has the advantage of be
ing at the Capital; it has horse-rac
ing, bicycle riding, side shows, fire
works, and a hundred and one other
things calculated. to attract money
and all classes of men; and yet.the
General Assembly, at its.last ses
sion, appropriated $2500 to aid this
society. Then, what hope is there
for County fairs which must be
conducted on a strictly moral assis?
In order to succeed, they aflneed'
sugar coating of something that
has nothing to d.o with agriculture.
or mechanics. .
Aniything that tends 'to induce.
our farmers to adopt improved
methods of. cultivation, and to im-'
prove their stock, deserves enceour
agement and .success. On this so
count we wish to.see our Agricul
tural Joint8Stock Poipany succeed..
