Hi J .it J. IP
MA.Y1S VILLE, ICY;
A Xew Field Open.
Undoubtedly the hardest problem that
presents itself to a yo'ing man is 'what
profession to choose. Ho finds himself
here in the world, with no chance to
back out if lie wanted to, everybody
rushing ahead as though they had been
kicked, and he has got to catch the fleeting
moments as they pas?, aside
and let some one else citch them. Everything
goes. Hut when he begins to
examine into matteis, he is appalled at
the chances there are against inm. Every
profession seems to be full, with
hardly standing-room left. Tin re seems
to bo more doctors than patients, more
lawyers than clients, more e.litors than
the law ought to allow, and more in all
professions than seems alsolutely necessary.
The young man does not see
where he has any field. What he wants
is room according to his strength. The
ring in which he is to fight his battle of
life looks too nariow and contracted,
and the atmosphere seems fixed. The
only chance seems to be in wailing until
some one invents something new that
will give employment to thousands, like
telegraphy, and then ruh in and secure
a prominent professional position before
the crush begins. What is wanted is
something genteel, and at the same time
We have been reflecting on this great
want that exists on the part of rising
young men, feeling sure that if we could
think-of some new field of operations we
would merit the encomiums, not only of
the young men themselves, but of posterity,
and encomiums ore'whabwewant.
We believe candidly that we havo
thought out. a new business, in which
there is millions, and in which thousands
of our best young men will find an
opportunity to crown a life of labor with
an age of ease. The new scheme m honesty.
There is hardly a business man
of any kind who has not at some time
felt the need of an honest man, but did
not know where to send for one. Now,
suppose one of these young men should
open an olllco in Wisconsin street, and
put out his sign, "J. Sraythe, Honest
Man" he would do a land office business.
People would come to him from
all over, requesting his services for odd
jobs that they might have in his line,
and he would fairly coin money. So long
as ho furnisht d a fair sample of honesty
he, would have plenty of customers ; and
then he would be free from all that petty
strife and competition that is the bane
of those in other professions. He would
not iuterfore particularly with lawyers,
journalists or am body, and nil the stock
in trade ho would require would be a
perforated cardboord motto, " Honesty
is the best policy," worked with
wool and hung conspicuously
in his office. No expensive library
would be required, or rjharrnacy, or
like other professional
men, and all the advertising he would
need would be a few lines in a newspaper,
stating that "Having full confidence
in the assertion that honesty is
the best policy, the undersigned lias decided
to embark permanently in that
business, and respectfully solicits public
patronage. " Of course honesty in some
places would not be popular at first.
But where is the profession in which
success is achieved in a day ? All real
and lasting fortunes, all permanent and
truly noble successes, have been a life
work, and not the creations of an hour.
The business will havo to be worked up,
of course. In Milwaukee, Chicago and
St. Louis, whore there is so much honesty
that it is a drug in the market, it
would be bard sledding ; but in Washington
an honest "man would have every
thing his own way, and be able to retire
, on a fortune. Our young men should
not complain that thereas no field for
.flielr abilities,) but, ahquld look 'a.bcmfc
thein, or come to' us. - We oaii alwrtys

TI I MCE !
Considerable fault has been ound
with me for saying that profitable agriculture
is founded upon the exhaustion
of the soil; if exhaustion is considered
an unsuitable term, I do not object to
change the word for reduction of its fertility.
The prices of the various products
of the farm are regulated chiefly by
the labor expended on their production,
and not upon tho amount of soil ingredients
which they remove from the land.
If all nations agreed to pass a law compelling
the farmer to restore to tho land
the whole of tho ingredients which ho
removed by his crops, we should not
only see such a law iollowed by a very
general, and large rise in the price of
our ordinary foods, but also that the
relative cost of tho foods themselves
would be very much altered. Even
without such a law wo find that necessity,
from time to time, compels farmers
to alier their mode of cultivation and
cropping; thus, when they find the fertility
of their land decreasing, they devote
themselves to cultivating such
products as contain more atmospheric
and fewer soil constituents. For instance,
let us take the case of sugar
beet. If the roots are sold off the farm,
in each 2,000 pounds of the dry roots
about 175 pounds of soil products will
be removed from the land; while by the
conversion of the same amount of sugar
beet into beef or mutton only about
10 pounds of soil products will be removed;
and if the beet be converted
into sugar none of the soil product need
be lost to the land.
For further illustration, I will follow
grass through the same series. If sold,
as hay, 7 or 8 per cent, of the soil constituents
are removed from the land ;
very much less, if tho grass is converted
into milk ; still less if converted into
meat ; and none at all if converted into
butter ; this last being a purely atmospheric
product, all the soil constituents
may find their way back to the land, except
perhaps some small portion, which,
in the form of skim-milk, might be used
to produce pork. It takes live or six
pounds of corn to produce one pound of
increase in a pig ; a large percentage of
this increase is fat, and a farmer who
preserves the blood and offal would exhaust
very little of his soil products in
producing bacon, It is the rich, fatty
cheese which commands the high price ;
and the low-priced cheese
which is comparatively rich in &o
products. Tho same law holds good
with regard to flour ; the finest flour is
exceedingly poor, both in nitrogen and
minerals; coarser flour contains more,
and bran a still larger amount of the soil
ingredients. As man cannot exist without
a certain amount of these soil
products in his food, and as all his
efforts in the j)roductiou of his food are
directed toward getting rid of such soil
products, the way in which he obtains
them in a separate form becomes rather'
an interesting physiological question.

Profound thought by a middle-aged
man: In the life of man thoro are two
critical periods. The first is toward his
20th year, when he anxiously inspects
his upper lip to see if tho hair is coming
out. And the second is toward his 40th,
when ho as anxiously inspects tho top of
his head to see if his hair is coming out.
Ii a couple of hundred years from this,
if the Bible is again revised to suit the
times, the passage in the parable of the
ten virgins, which reads thus: "Give us
your' oil, for our Jainps have gone ouV
will be. changed to, "Give us of your
electric light, for our circuit is tempora
rily broken," , '.
