Tuesday, .ecemoer o, .mVv.
The destiny of the farmer of the
future is influenced in a great degree
by the farm homes of the present gen
eration. It is undeniably true that
much of the responsibility for the
maovement of farmers cityward is due
to the discomforts and inconveniences
of the farm home. It is useless to
decry the action of the farm boy and
farm girl who go to the city because
they foresee better things for them
selves, while the fathers and mothers
are hustling in the same direction. A
wide acquaintance gives us abundant
evidence that a great many farmers
:are looking forward to the time
be put on a basis fully as attractive
-as those of the city? The answer
to this question means that profits of
the farm be invested in improved
'farm homes-houses supplied with
heating systems, running water, sew
-erage, gas or electric light. It means
large, roomy comfortably arranged
houses. It means houses that are
homes-homes just as good as any
the city can provide. It means com
Tfort for aching bones and rest for tired
-muscles. It means pride of posses
sion and mental satisfaction. It is not
~ worth the price Never doubt it.
It is fact that all these things may
be accomplished at a cost not a whit
-greater than is incurred for like
buildings in the city. It will, of course,I
tcall for the expenditure of morc
-money on the farm, but that should
be considered in the light of an invest
me'nt which will add just that much
\tc its material value.
If one-half the immense sums of
money which the farmers of the Unmit
- d States have invested in Canada
lands had been devoted to building
good, substantial, comfortable, con
'renient and well-equipped houses on
the 'farms that produced as profits the
-money thus sent abroad such farms
-would have received a wonderfu1 re
'rival of values, and the families on
them would have become th. objects
of envy where they are now worship -
-pers at the shrine of city comforts.
Such houses do not involve any ex
-penditure out of proportion with the
value of the farm. They need not be
-over-expensive. Yet the construction
.of such a house should be of a char
-acter good for many generations of
the future. Brick, stone and concrete
should supplant wood. At present and
prospective prices of lumber the dif
'ference in cost is worthy of no con
sideration whatever. Wood, as an ex
terior building material, is only a
temporary makeshift at best. ais prz

conveniences which may be had for
the farm home. They have perfected
systems of water supply for the
house that are as excellent in their
operation and as effective in their re
sults obtained as any city plant. The
cost is decidedly low.
Furnaces, hot-water plants or
steam heating devices are just as
cheap, just as available and just as
much to be depended upon as those
in use in the city home.
For lighting, both gas and electric
