Labor is capital, intelligence is capital,
combine them and you more than double
the amount of your capital. It is indus
try which makes capital, not capital the
industry, but industry ill directed can b
never acquire the capital which comes from a
from well-directed industry. Look through
any town, and on the same road, occupying
farms of similar character, and you will ob
serve a difference in the prosperity of the
farmers. Examine closely the conditions n
and it will be found that the richest far- -
mor has oxercised the most intelligence
over his labor. Seek further and you will
tind poor and industrious farmers, as well
as poor and lazyj farmers. An intelligent .
application is used, and loss actual labor,
