FARM LIFE AS IT MIGHT BE.
[From a speech by Col. Ingersmll.
It is Itt t ,eceesary in this age, of
the worltt for the farmer to rise in
the middle of the flight and begin
his work. This getting tip so early
itn the morrnitng is a relic of bar
Inrism. It ha s made hundreds of
thoeattlds of 3onlllg men cnrae the
bu~iness. There ja no need of
getting up at 3 or 4 o'clock in the
wintler umornllilg. The farmer who
Ipersists in dragging his wife nod
chltldtenl from their beds ought to
be visited by a missionary. It is
time enough to rise after the sun
has set the example. itn the old
tinites they used to get up about 3
o'clock in the muorning, slind long
b*efore the ann had risen with "heal.
illg uponi its wings," and, ai a just
punlishmelntlt, they all had the agne;
sllt they onght to have it now.
When you litse at foter and work
till dark, what is life worth Of
a ht "use is till the improved me.
chiliery utless it lend to give the
farnter a little more leisuret What
is harvesting nIOW compared with
what it was its the old titmte t Think
of the days of reaping, of crdling,
of raking anld hindintg andi mowing.
Think of threshintg with the flail
andtl winntowing with the wing.
And now think of the rnapers antti
mowers, I the binders and threshing
matchilntte , anld plonghs and culti
vators, upon which the farmer
rides protected from the son. If,
with all these advantages, yon can.
Inot get a living without rising in
the middle of the night go into
somtne otlher busiess. You shIould
not rob your families of eleep.
Sleep in the best uMedicine in thet
world. There is no such thiltg as
health without sleep. Sleep until
3ou are thoroughly rested and
restored. Whent you work, work;
and when you get thraough take a
good, long, and refreshing sleep.
A great many farmters seem to
thilnk that they are the only labor
ers in the world. This is t very
foolish thing. Farmers cannot get
alontg without the tecbhanic. You
are not indeclnudent of the man of
getniUs Your prospelrity depends
upon the iltventor. The world
advances by the assistance of all
Inaborers, end all labor is under
olligations to the inventionts of
genina. The inventor doesas mueb
for agriculturt' as he who tills the
soial. Until genius anid lalor formed
a partnaersabhip there ws Ito such
tlaitlg as prosperity amonIg men.
Every mesper aod mower, every
agricultnral implemenot, haselevated
the work of the farmer, and bis
rocaJion grows grander with eve~
lventonu. itt the olden time the
agriueolturist was igtorent; be knmew
nothing of manhiiery, be w thb
slave of mt~erstithlo.
The farmer bee lta elevated
ithroeugh amenei, sod be sbould amt
eget tbhe debt he oewe to the
moehasue, to tbe ioveotee, to the
thinker. le should remember that
all laborers belong to the same
grand femily-that they are the o
real kings and queens, the only
true nobility. I
Above all, let every farmer treat
his wife and children with infinite
kindness. Give your sons and
daughters every advantage within I
your power. In the air of kind I
oea they will grow shoot yon like t
flowers. They will fill your bhomes
with sunshine and all your yearsn
with joy. Do not try to rule by t
force. A blow from a parent leave r
a scar on the soul. I should feel I
ashamed to die surrounded by I
obiltren I had whipped. Think of t
feeling upon four dying lihe the
kiss of a child you had struck.
See to it that your wife has e'ery
convenience. Make her life worth I
living. Never allow her to become r
a servant. Wives, weary and worn; t
mothers, wrinkled and beat before
their time, fill bomes with grief and I
shame. If you are not able to hire c
bellp for your wives, help them your. I
selves. See that they have the a
beat utensils to work with. Women t
cannot create things by magic. I
Have plenty of wood and coal-
good cellars and plenty in them. t
Have cisternll, o that you canl have t
plenty of raini.wntr for washing. 1
I)o not rely on a barrel and a board.
When the rain comes the bonrd i
will be lost or the hoops will be oft o
the barrel. t
Farmers should live like princes. a
Enat the beat thing you raise and c
sell the rest. Have good things to 3
cook with. Of all Ieople in our 4
country, you should live best. i
Throw your miserable little stoves t
out of the window. Oct ranges, I
and have them so built that your
wife neeld not barn her tace oil to r
get you a breakfast. I)o not make i
her coot in a kitchen hot as the r
orthodez i~writiuo. The beef, not t
the cook. should be roasted. It is
just na easy to have things con, e
venient anld right as to have them t
any other wray.
Cooking is otne of the One arts. r
Give your wives and daugh I
ters things to cook and r
thlinga to cook with, and they
will soon become most excellentI
cooks. Good cooking is the basis
of civilization. The man whose I
arteries aind veins are filled with
rich blood made of good end well. t
cooked food has pluck, courage, I
endurance, and lnoble impulse.
In the good old days there would I
lie eleven children in the family and t
only one skillet. Everything was I
broken or cracked or loaned or lost. i
There ought to be a law making
it a crime, Inuishable by imprison.I
ment, to fry beekateak. Broil it;
it is just as etay, and when broiled
it is debliious. Fried beefsteak is
not it for a wild beast. You an t
broil even on a store. Shut the
front dalmper, opea the back one,
then take oft a griddle. There will
be droaught lownward through this
opwning. Put on youear steak, onal
a wire broiler, and not a particle of
smoke will touch it, for the reason
that the smoke goes down. If .on
try to broil it with the front damper
open, the smoke will risa. For
broiliig, coal, even soft coal, makes
a better fire than wood. There is
no reason why farmers should not
have fresh meat all the year round.
There is etainly no sense in stuff.

Remember that everything of
twauty tends to the eleration of
man. Every little morning glory
whoae purple bosom is thrilled with
the amorous kisses of the sun tends
to put a blosoem in your heart. Do
not judge at the va:ue of every.
thing by the market reports. Every
lower shout the house certifies to
the refinement of somebody. Every
vine, climling nod blossoming, tells
of love and joy.
Make your houses comfortable.
Do not huddle together in a little
room around a red hot stove, with
every winlow fastened down. Do
not lire in this poisened atmsoo
gihere, and then when one of your
children dies, put a piece in the
papers commencing with, "Wh'et'r
as it has ideased Divine Providenuce
to remove from our midst-,-.'
Have plenty of air annd plenty of
warmth. Comfort is health. Do
not imagine anythling is unbeal

This is an old anId foolish idea.
Let your children sleep. Do not
drag them from their beds in the
darkuess of night. Do not compel
them to asanciate all that is tire
some, irksome amnd dreadful with
cultivatiug the soil. In this way
you bring farming into hatred and
disrepute. Treat your children
with infinite kindness-treat theam
as equals. There is no happiness
in a home not Sied with ltoe.

where tine wife hates the husband;
